1 Finally We May Have a Path to the Fundamental Theory of Physics

It’s the ultimate question in natural science: How does our universe work? Is there a fundamental theory? An incredible amount has been figured out about physics over the past few hundred years. But even with everything that’s been done—and it’s very impressive—we still, after all this time, don’t have a truly fundamental theory of physics.

2 A healthy society requires a healthy planet

Today we’re adopting four principles to guide our work in helping achieve global biodiversity goals. It is abundantly clear that the world needs greater access to environmental data to assess, diagnose and treat the natural systems that society depends on. Yet for all the great work of our AI for Earth community, we have also learned that they need more. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recognizes that the health of people, animals and our shared natural environment are closely connected.

3 Coronavirus: why an open future has never been more important

Our job is to make sure that the future we emerge into is a fair, free and open future. The Open Knowledge Foundation’s work continues During the coronavirus pandemic, we continue with our important work. We will get through this, and we will emerge on the other side of the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, the Open Knowledge Foundation campaigned for improved transparency from large social media companies about tackling fake news and disinformation. As a result, Open Knowledge Brazil launched a successful legal challenge to get the Brazilian government to release more open data to help in the fight against COVID-19. On Saturday 7th March, groups from around the world organised more than 300 events to celebrate, promote and spread the use of open data.

4 CERN technologies contribute to openUp2U, a learning platform for schools in Europe

Since its inception in January 2017, CERN is part of the EU-funded Up2U (Up2University) project. The Up2U platform is a Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) that is modular, interoperable, GDPR compliant, highly customizable and portable. Teachers, students and educational institutions interested in accessing the openUp2U platform and services are encouraged to check the openUp2U booklet and user guide available on the platform’s webpage. The project is coordinated by GÉANT, the pan-European data network for the research and education community, and gathers 18 partners from 12 countries. CERNbox is powered by EOS, the storage system created at CERN for extreme LHC computing requirements, and by ownCloud.

WebRadar is a browser based radar cheat for CS:GO that can be run on a different PC, connected to a PCIe card providing direct memory access to the target computer. The HTTP Server code is written very hasty and dirty because I wanted to implement websockets first but gave up If you notice any other issues, please report them.

7 Fruit Trenches: Cultivating Subtropical Plants in Freezing Temperatures

Perhaps surprisingly, creeping citrus plants had higher yields than semi-dwarf citrus plants. This eventually resulted in creeping citrus plants, which were only 25 cm tall. Citrus plants are not frost-hardy and can only be grown in tropical and subtropical climates – unless they are cultivated in fossil fuel heated glasshouses. Citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, mandarins, tangerines, grapefruits, limes, pomeloes) are the highest-value fruit crop in terms of international trade. This limited dehydration of the crown so that less water was needed.
