150 Unexpected half-siblings

USA: How advances in reproductive medicine and the information society are creating new family ties for which there are no social rules as yet

How problematic the search for the "unknown father" Western culture has long been aware of the fact that the. world literature has arisen from it, for example Ulysees. Myths, as in the case of odipus, stood at the beginning of a far-reaching cultural current, psychonanalysis. And the "absent father" is still very much alive as a buzzword in the discussion about good parenting, despite the "new father", who often enough take care of the living under traditional conditions and time constraints. Another type of the "new father", the sperm donor, does not have this obligation. He is not part of the family. Or is he?? And how?

No one knows how many children are born each year in the U.S. to a sperm donor father, the New York Times reports. Treasures suggests a number between 30.000 and 60.000. The name of the father is a digit. Anonymization, however, as has often been shown in the past, does not prevent people from finding out more about the unknown father.

Ampere altra max: processor with 128 arm cores in the starting pages

Ampere Altra Max: processor with 128 arm cores in the starting pages

Ampere has given an update to the next server processor top model with the code name Altra Max, which will appear with 128 CPU cores in the course of this year – 48 more than the fastest Altra processor Q80-33 so far. The basic architecture based on Arms Neoverse-N1 design remains the same, as well as the CPU-Fang LGA4926 used – the 128-kerners fit in previous mainboards.

However, ampere uses the interconnect to keep the latencies within the nuclear network (mesh-interconnect) potentially low. First manufacturer’s own benchmarks compare the new 128 kerners with the 3.0 GHz fast 80-kernel Q80-30

Tesla rugt approval procedures for gigafactory in grunheide

Tesla rugt approval procedures for Gigafactory in Grunheide

Tesla criticizes the approval procedure for his electric car plant at Berlin. The US electric car manufacturer argues in an opinion, the factory helps by dissemination of e-mobilitat in the fight against the world. "The German approval framework for industrial and infrastructure projects as well as spatial planning is in direct opposition to the urgency of the planning and realization of such projects necessary for the validity of climate change", criticized Tesla.

"Particularly irritating" Be for Tesla that there are 16 months after the application no schedule for the ie of a final approval. That "Blatant problem" It is that in current procedures and laws projects that were climate change and those who accelerated him were equally treated. Tesla has built the work so far with premier. The work were repeatedly interrupted after the procedure of environmental links.

Environmental aid against Federal Republic

Tesla exults in a procedure between the German Environmental Help (DUH) and the Federal Republic of the Upper Administrative Court Berlin-Brandenburg (OVG 11A22 / 21). The DUH demands that the Federal Government would be convicted to establish a program to achieve the national climate protection target 2030. Tesla handed the opinion as "Amicus Curiae" as it was in the interest of the procedure to share the experiences.

Study: gasoline direct-injection engines emit many particles

According to a study by the Bern University of Applied Sciences, gasoline engines with direct injection emitted a particularly large number of hazardous particles. The current study shows that emissions in real traffic are significantly higher than in the test lab. Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH), which commissioned the study, is therefore calling for the installation of filters like those in diesel engines.

Gasoline engines with direct injection emit significantly more harmful particles in traffic than in laboratory tests. With a realistic driving behavior, the emission of pollutants rose sharply in the test. "This can be easily remedied by car manufacturers installing a particulate filter, as they do with diesel," says Dorothee Saar, an expert on air pollution control at DUH. A Hyundai 30 GDI with 1.6 liters and a VW Golf VII TSI with 1.4 liters were tested. The Volkswagen complied on the test bench with the limits for particulate emissions applicable from 2014 and from 2017. The Hyundai was only below the weaker 2014 limits. On the road, however, the Golf’s emissions were significantly higher than those of the Hyundai. In the second run with particulate filter, the emissions of the Golf were almost completely reduced.

In Dorothee Saar’s opinion, the laboratory test is simply not comparable with the behavior of drivers in real traffic. On the road, for example, significantly higher top speeds and stronger accelerations were achieved. Simply put: Hardly anyone has a driving style as mabful as that simulated in the lab.

Driving report: yamaha niken

Driving report: yamaha niken

Innovations in motorcycle construction have always been discussed HEIB. What began with ABS in the early nineties, continued in the two thousands in the slip control: driving assistance systems were first perceived by many as an attack on self-determination. It becomes particularly hot if a new concept is pushed the idea of the motorcycle in its groundfest, as currently the electric wheel.

Like the reaction to Yamaha’s new Niken (say: Neiken), it is still more violent. Rarely has a motorcycle in advance to plug in as much HAME, such as the tricycle, ahhh that Leaning Multi Wheeler Named motorcycle of Yamaha.

Can three rade motorcycle?

All those who know a little with the Yamaha model palette may have been in demand at the first presentation of the Niken at the end of 2017, where the Japanese take the courage to take a concept. As a reminder: Already in 1993, Yamaha tried with the sports tour GTS 1000 at the first motorcycle produced in series with aerial control. And 25 years ago, the experimentation of the Japanese was punished. With only nearly 1400 specimens sold in Germany, the GTS could confidently be referred to as a flop. At that time, however, was above all the lack of maturity of the system, which did not generate real advantages and the disgountable, curvature front-wheel dimension of 130/60.

Soder: “car pact against driving bans”

Soder: 'car pact against driving bans'

Bavaria’s Minister President Markus Soder (CSU) wants to prevent diesel driving bans in the state by introducing a package of measures. "One thing is quite clear: Bavaria is a car state and therefore we are against driving bans. They achieve little and only burden traffic and the burghers," the CSU politician told the dpa in Munich. He added that the state government was in favor of adhering to limit values, "but we should also show more common sense again.".

To improve air values in Bavaria’s urban centers, Soder announced a new car pact with various measures: "We now want to initiate scientific studies in Bavaria. Which limit values are actually meaningful and relevant for health protection and what is the relation to other limit values?."From Soder’s point of view, the example of driving bans for diesel vehicles in Hamburg shows "how absurd this is in practice. A few meters of road are blocked and everyone drives around in the dark. That is no solution for the pollution."

In addition, the state government wants to further expand local public transport. "We will invest 100 million euros more per year. With new trains, buses and support for routes that have not been so profitable up to now, we want to intensify the tangential traffic around the conurbations and improve the frequency," said Soder. The auto pact will go far beyond the diesel ie, he said. "It’s also about the qualification of the workforce. The top priority, however, is to avoid driving bans."

Corona warning app: “red lamp does not automatically mean high risk”

Corona warning app:'rote lampe bedeutet nicht automatisch hohe gefahr''rote lampe bedeutet nicht automatisch hohe gefahr'

Nevertheless, not all the details of the core process of the National Corona Warn app are known that officially imagine politics and participating companies on Tuesday. Sure, however, it is that it is one "red signal" would give if a user had a risky contact with a coronavirus infected, Ute Teichert explained director of the academy for public healthcare, on Monday at a web conference of the Science Media Center (SMC). These" red lamp" mean "not automatically a high risk".

A chain of events

Teichert called a warning through the app as "a note of several in a chain of events that you have to look at". The affected user is only called the day of an increased risk of infection, not the time. He also experiences multiple contact with infected. There is a recommendation in such a case, the location health department, call the on-call service 116 117 or the family doctor.

At the behavior, the normal task of risk demonstration, in which they worked after an individual contact personnel scheme, succeeded in the chairman of the Federal Association of Arztinns of the Public Health Service. They had to find out how closely coincidence had been on a said day, whether people had gone with or without mouthguard on clothfooling and had chosen about. Every note should be further verified.

10 Years chromeos: google tapped chromebooks narrower with android

10 years Chromeos: Google tapped chromebooks narrower with Android

Google’s operating system Chromeos may experience what hardly a Google offer achieves: his tenth birthday. For this occasion, Google donates this month the new version M89 with a number of new features. Especially the toothing with Android advantages should be narrower. Horsebub remains the limited "durability".

Google has presented Chromeos for the first time in July 2009 and the year the first Chromebook commissioned as part of a pilot program. For Google I / O in May 2011, there were the first premixed chromebooks, namely of Acer and Samsung. This date Google now pulls up to celebrate ten years of chromos. The motto of the three S has been unnecessary since the start: Chromeos gates should be simple, fast, and safe.

Simple and safe brings with him that the users must make cuts in the episis of certain preferences. However, this significantly reduces the support effort in companies and educational institutions. And in schools are chromebooks according to Google the most bought gardures, worldwide. That in turn drives the parents’ parents who experience how their children handle with Chromebooks. More than 40 million chromebooks are in action in schools, more recently in Japan.

Standstill in germany

According to the new DeutschlandTrend, are Germans satisfied or do they just see no real alternative??

Germans seem to be satisfied with the rough coalition at present. The opposition is not gaining ground, as the DeutschlandTrend has just shown again. The state of political lack of alternatives prevails. 40 percent became CDU. We are apparently satisfied – or see no alternative in the options offered.

The calm that has been evident for months should be startling. When there is no real opposition anymore, something goes wrong in democracy. The politicians who rely on consensus rank right at the top: Steinmeier, Merkel, Schauble and now also Gabriel. Whoever is in power scores. The fact that Seehofer or Dobrindt did relatively badly could also be due to the fact that they don’t speak for the majority opinion, but for determining minorities. And, my God, the fact that the West German leftist Ramelow will now become Minister President in Thuringia is disturbing a majority. However, 40 percent can already imagine a government participation of the left in the federation. More in the East than in the West, but the fear of the Reds seems to be gradually fading away.
