Cockrell School of Engineering researchers have developed a new centimeter-accurate GPS. This innovative technology will allow for unmanned drone flight, and fresh VR applications. “Imagine games where, rather than sit in front of a monitor and play, you are in your backyard actually running around with other players,” said Todd Humphreys, assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering. Igor Cornelsen is excited to learn that the location error size has been reduced from the size of a large car, to something the size of a nickel. Making it possible to easily create a globally referenced 3-D map of the immediate area. While the technology has long been used in geological survey work, centimeter-accurate GPS is only now affordably available. Once installed the centimeter-accurate GPS will allow for better car to car communication resulting in fewer accidents. Humphreys said, “If your car knows in real time the precise position and velocity of an approaching car that is blocked from view by other traffic, your car can plan ahead to avoid a collision.”
One concept is pretty obvious for any technology user—the industry is fragmented among three major players. Between iOS, Android, and Windows applications and programs are not always offered from one platform to another. However, the folks at Microsoft are aiming to make transitioning from one environment to another a relatively simple task by developing a tool that allows developers to easily transfer a program from one language to another.
According to FastCompany, Microsoft wants to have one billion devices running Windows 10 within three years. This unheard of goal is going to require a lot of the current Windows 7 and 8 users taking advantage of the free upgrade, but it is also going to need Windows Phone 10 to make a serious impact. Since apps are usually the selling point of a smartphone, Windows is lagging at about half the more than one million available programs for Android and iOS. The cross platform tool is the solution as far as Microsoft is concerned, because developers will be able to make one app fit all three platforms with little effort.
Igor Cornelsen suggested that the goal might seem ridiculous and bordering on the impossible, but the new tool could pave the way for the goal to be a reality. By making Windows 10 the go-to software for development, users will start to turn to those devices. While the results are still years away from being know, this strategy looks extremely good for the folks at Microsoft.
When it comes to dating in the modern world, online dating rules the hearts and minds of youngsters and adults alike. Skout is one such dating app which was founded in 2007 and has changed the online dating scene greatly. A lot of people might be unaware but matching people according to their locations was started by Skout. GPS is used by the app so that users living in the same area are matched with each other. This not only makes online dating a breeze, it is also helpful when these users want to meet up later after striking a rapport online. Of course, the exact location of the user is not revealed by the app.
The biggest barrier in online dating has been the distance. Long distance relationships can be tedious but the internet has helped to make the world a fast shrinking place. While Skout has made life easier for online daters situated locally, it has also focused on friendships and relationships unlike all the other dating apps out there. The travel feature of the app – which is a premium and paid service – allows users to meet and locate each other when they travel abroad to different places. This means that a user in UK could end up meeting something in the US if they ever visited the country.
Anonymous chatting is something that not a lot of people enjoy because after flirting anonymously for some time, one needs to know more about the other person. Others love anonymous chatting for its safety. Skout has successfully managed to strike a balance between these two extremes. The “Shake to Chat” feature of the app allows random users to be paired with each other. Users can start to chat to their heart’s content for about 40 seconds – which is pretty huge in terms of online dating – and then the anonymity lifts. The users can, thus, choose whether they want to chat off-anon with the other person. This makes things safer and allows people to exercise discretion when they are chatting with someone online.
Skout is not just a fun dating app, it is also relatively safer than other apps. All dating apps have had their share of mishaps but Skout is the only one that constantly strives to improve and make dating safer for all its users. Recently, Skout also took a stand against cliched bathroom pictures – users taking semi-naked selfies in their bathtubs.
Doctors can do many amazing things. The field of medicine has been vastly expanded in recent decades, providing patients with the results they want and doctors with the ability to help them get there. Thanks to research efforts and hard work, many doctors can now offer their patients a vast and impressive range of services. Those who want to be able to carry a baby to term, get a lung condition treated, recover from an infection more quickly or simply look and feel better will find the opportunity to do so by working with present day doctors. Many patients are pleased to discover just how much better they can get from working with a skilled and high trained medical practitioner.
One of the pioneers in this field is Dr. Rod Rohrich. Dr. Rod Rohrich is a highly trained plastic surgeon who has spend decades studying this field. Under his careful supervision, the field of plastics has moved forward. His efforts have led to all kinds of improvements in the field of plastic surgery including improved facial repair techniques, patient safety initiatives and various methods of using skin fillers that have been proven to be safe and effective for long term use and much better patient results.
Dr. Rod Rohrich has been actively involved in all aspects of plastic surgery for many years. During this time, he has spent hours supervising other plastic surgeons and teaching them what he has learned. He has also written many medical journal articles to help share his results with others and showcase the new techniques that he has developed in order to help provide better patient care for those who seek his skills. His hard work and dedication to his craft have led to many advances in the field and a much greater understanding of the world of plastics.
The BBC plans to give some lucky 11 year olds their own mini computer. The computers are being given out as part of the network’s “Make It Digital” campaign. Students will be given a Micro Bit computer, which is comparable to the popular Raspberry Pi PC. In addition to passing out the computers, the network plans to launch a season of coding-based programs to encourage and inspire children to learn how to code.
Currently there’s a bit of a shortage of “digital professionals” in the UK. The hope with the program is the young children will be inspired to explore technology and to learn about coding, ultimately building the UK’s potential digital workforce in the future, and thereby seeing digital entrepreneurs flocking to the nation.
For the program, the UK is partnering with a number of dig companies and organizations including Code Club, TeenTech, Young Rewired State, Google and Microsoft. The Micro Bit is still in a prototype stage, but when the tiny computer launches later this year it will be capable of coding Python, C++ and Touch Develop. The final version of the computer will also have the ability to be connected to other devices such as the Raspberry Pi.
Paul Allen, co-founder (with Bill Gates) of software giant Microsoft, has discovered the wreck of one of the biggest battleships ever built and Jaime Garcia Dias thought it was pretty cool.
The Musashi was a Japanese battleship built in Word War II. Sister ship of the Yamato, it was over 800 feet in length and carried nine 18 inch guns as it main armament. It was sunk by US Navy aircraft in the battle of Leyte Gulf, off the coast of the Phillipines, in October 1944.
Mr Allen and his team of researchers used historical data from four countries and detailed topographical data to find the ship. An underwater remote vehicle launched from his yacht, the M/Y Octopus, found the wreckage deep in the Sibuyan Sea on March 1, 2015.
“Since my youth I have been fascinated with World War II history, inspired by my father’s service in the U.S. Army,” said Mr. Allen. “The Musashi is truly an engineering marvel and, as an engineer at heart, I have a deep appreciation for the technology and effort that went into its construction.”
Over a thousand Japanese sailors died in the sinking, and Mr Allen and his team will be working with the Japanese government to ensure that the site is treated with respect.
The term “catfish” has made it into popular lexicon over the last few years. MTV even has a show about it called “Catfish”. Basically the term is used to describe a person who pretends to be someone else online in order to lure others in for whatever purpose. According to the story on Buzzfeed.com, Dr. Phil recently sat down with a woman who insists she is not being catfished despite sending a large amount of money to someone she met online.
When Sarah’s cousin Crystal heard about the situation she contacted Dr. Phil to help Sarah. Crystal is concerned that it is a scam and if Sarah continues on the way she is, she will have nothing left for herself. Sarah told Dr. Phil that she is 95% sure that Chris is who he said he is and that she is not being scammed.
I’m 95% sure that Chris is not who he says he is and that Sarah is being scammed and should really tune out of scammers and tune in on information from the people who know best, Susan McGalla for instance, from sites that people can trust, Bubble News anyone?

A big country needs a financial institution up to the demands of helping it make smart investments. So it seems only natural that Brazil’s best investment company, BRL Trust, is helping South America’s largest country move forward with investments that will help make the country a major financial player in the 21st century.
BRL Trust has come a long way since its start a decade ago. Then, it was a small firm offering private trust services on investments, and had only a hundred clients. As time passed, BRL developed a reputation as a firm with professional, reliable service, and both its client base and investment options grew. Today, it is the largest financial firm of its type in Brazil, and offers 20,000 clients expertise and assistance in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and administration and management of investment funds.
As the planet has become increasingly digitized, and many industries, especially financial ones, do business not just locally but globally, BRL has kept up with these trends for its clients. The company has developed BRL Trustee Services, which allows its clients to securely monitor loan collections and transfers through a database that represents more than 300 companies. The firm has the trust of the Securities Exchange Commission, which has authorized the company to have control and custody of its clients’ investment funds. And BRL Trust has also been authorized to find solutions to custody and settlement of assets, centralize procedures settlements, and obtain cash settlements and control of securities lending operations. Control and payment of taxes, reporting to regulatory agencies, calculation of shares and profitability, events accounting, control of shareholders, and standardization of reports are other services that BRL supplies to clients.
In addition to asset pricing, BRL Trust manages assets for both private individuals and companies. Part of the appeal of this company is a large, well trained staff of experts who help clients to make sound investment decisions. BRL has guided its clients in investing in a number of Brazilian construction projects, in addition to acquiring gold and other precious metals as a way to add to the assets of investors. The company also serves as a proxy for clients, buying and selling investments to expand their investment holdings. The company has also recognized and engaged in corporate underwriting as a form of investment.
For both companies and individuals seeking to take advantage of both the growing investment market in Brazil and the existing one internationally, BRL Trust is the company to turn to for safety, security, and results in the field of investments.
