PATTERNS IN THE USE OF EMOJIS COULD PREDICT THE DROPOUT OF REMOTE WORKERS
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in professionals working remotely as a result of lockdown regulations or merely as a preventive measure. When professionals work remotely, however, it is far harder for employers to get a sense of their job satisfaction, wellbeing and mental health.
GOOGLE ALLOWS USERS TO UPDATE THE MAPS APP WITH PHOTOS
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes, including business closures and updated hours for restaurants and stores.
GOOGLE UPGRADES WEAR OS WITH CUSTOM TILES LIBRARY
Since 2014, Google has taken its user base by storm with increasingly advanced features for its Wear OS. Over the past years, Wear OS devices have enabled users to tell time, track fitness and make calls all from a wearable accessory smaller than a mobile phone.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
THE REALIZATION OF A NEW TYPE OF INFORMATION DEMON THAT PROFITS FROM GAMBLING STRATEGIES
Researchers at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Italy and the PICO group at Aalto University in Finland have introduced the idea of an information demon that follows a customary gambling strategy to stop non-equilibrium processes at stochastic times. The new demons they realized, which differ from the renowned Maxwell’s demon, were presented in a paper published in Physical Review Letters.
WHEN MEMORY QUBITS AND PHOTONS GET ENTANGLED
Encrypting data in a way that ensures secure communication is an ever-growing challenge because crucial components of today’s encryption systems cannot withstand future quantum computers. Researchers around the world are therefore working on technologies for novel encryption methods that are also based on quantum effects. The phenomenon of so-called quantum entanglement plays a particularly important role here. This means that in a quantum network, the stationary qubits of the network are entangled with the communication channel, which usually consists of photons (light particles). For the first time, physicists at the University of Bonn have now been able to demonstrate quantum entanglement between a stationary qubit, i.e. a two-state quantum system, and a photon with direct coupling to an optical fiber. The study has been published in the journal npj Quantum Information.
WHISPERS FROM THE DARK SIDE: WHAT CAN GRAVITATIONAL WAVES REVEAL ABOUT DARK MATTER?
The NANOGrav Collaboration recently captured the first signs of very low-frequency gravitational waves. Prof. Pedro Schwaller and Wolfram Ratzinger analyzed the data and, in particular, considered the possibility of whether this may point towards new physics beyond the Standard Model. In an article published in the journal SciPost Physics, they report that the signal is consistent with both a phase transition in the early universe and the presence of a field of extremely light axion-like particles (ALPs). The latter are considered as promising candidates for dark matter.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
EUROPEAN SUMMER DROUGHTS SINCE 2015 UNPRECEDENTED IN PAST TWO MILLENNIA
Recent summer droughts in Europe are far more severe than anything in the past 2,100 years, according to a new study.
SCIENTISTS STUNNED TO DISCOVER PLANTS BENEATH MILE-DEEP GREENLAND ICE
In 1966, US Army scientists drilled down through nearly a mile of ice in northwestern Greenland—and pulled up a fifteen-foot-long tube of dirt from the bottom. Then this frozen sediment was lost in a freezer for decades. It was accidentally rediscovered in 2017.
STUDY PREDICTS THE OCEANS WILL START EMITTING OZONE-DEPLETING CFCs
The world’s oceans are a vast repository for gases including ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs. They absorb these gases from the atmosphere and draw them down to the deep, where they can remain sequestered for centuries and more.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
SPACEWALKERS TAKE EXTRA SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR TOXIC AMMONIA
Spacewalking astronauts had to take extra safety precautions Saturday after possibly getting toxic ammonia on their suits from the International Space Station’s external cooling system.
RUSSIA DEPLOYS GIANT SPACE TELESCOPE IN LAKE BAIKAL
Russian scientists on Saturday launched one of the world’s biggest underwater space telescopes to peer deep into the universe from the pristine waters of Lake Baikal.
THERE MIGHT BE MANY PLANETS WITH WATER-RICH ATMOSPHERES
An atmosphere is what makes life on Earth’s surface possible, regulating our climate and sheltering us from damaging cosmic rays. But although telescopes have counted a growing number of rocky planets, scientists had thought most of their atmospheres long lost.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
WIDER HORIZONS FOR HIGHLY ORDERED NANOHOLE ARRAYS
Scientists from Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed a new method for making ordered arrays of nanoholes in metallic oxide thin films using a range of transition metals. The team used a template to pre-pattern metallic surfaces with an ordered array of dimples before applying electrochemistry to selectively grow an oxide layer with holes. The process makes a wider selection of ordered transition metal nanohole arrays available for new catalysis, filtration, and sensing applications.
USE OF PEROVSKITE WILL BE A KEY FEATURE OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF ELECTRONIC APPLIANCES
Quantum dots are manmade nanoparticles of semiconducting material comprising only a few thousand atoms. Because of the small number of atoms, a quantum dot’s properties lie between those of single atoms or molecules and bulk material with a huge number of atoms. By changing the nanoparticles’ size and shape, it is possible to fine-tune their electronic and optical properties—how electrons bond and move through the material, and how light is absorbed and emitted by it.
