DFY Supercar Goes Viral

BANGKOK, Thailand – It’s the lifelong dream of many avid car lovers to sketch up plans and design their very own supercar. But seeing the plans come to fruition? That takes extreme dedication. From crafting plans to putting tires on the road, that’s just what Israeli expat Guy Even did — he built his very own supercar with his company G-Motors in Bangkok, Thailand.

“I’ve always wanted to build my own specialty car,” says Guy Even, “so I started to make plans to make my own and it has been a remarkable journey.”

Even’s project started about four years ago when he decided it was the right time to fulfill his lifelong dream to build a car. He travelled around the world for inspiration but he wasn’t entirely satisfied with what he saw; nothing really matched what he was looking to build. Even had a dream and he wasn’t about to compromise.

Even wanted to build an attractive, head-turning car that also boasts the ability to drive everyday. That’s when the idea came to him to do it himself: he started with making plans, then bought a shop and machinery to begin construction on his car.

He also documented his journey and process with photos on his company’s Facebook page. The photos on the page demonstrate the long process from chassis to body and finishing touches.

While Even doesn’t call his sleek supercar a “supercar,” a picture would quickly show it sure looks like one. The car features sleek, aerodynamic and futuristic design whose physique draws inspiration from a Bugatti or Lamborghini.

Even states a supercar is extremely powerful with about 600-700 horsepower. Even’s car is not quite that powerful but is still impressive and more powerful than the average car; it uses an American V8 engine and has 300-320 horsepower making this car a good choice to drive every day.

According to Even, this car wasn’t a one-off. Now that the prototype has been created G-Motors plans to create and sell more calls just like Even’s supercar. Because the car is designed for every day use, it claims to be low maintenance and is strangely a practical choice for the road even though it looks anything but practical.

“It is a really nice, every day car,” states Evens. “And because so many people love it, we’re committed to building more cars for others.”

G-Motors wants everyone to come out and visit his shop and see his creation. Now his dream is building more practical supercars — it’s clear that for Even, dreams are always the start of something bigger.

Nobel Prize in Physics Recognizes Black Hole Discoveries

0

COLLEGE PARK, MD, October 6, 2020 — The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics to Roger Penrose “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity” and to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.” Ghez is the fourth woman to win a Nobel Prize in Physics.

“APS congratulates the 2020 Nobel Laureates for their outstanding contributions to astrophysics, and the understanding of our universe,” said APS CEO Kate Kirby. “I sincerely hope that this award will inspire the next generation of physicists, especially young women, whom we are committed to supporting at every level.”

“I’m pleased to see the Swedish academy recognize a fourth woman Nobel Laureate,” said APS President Phil Bucksbaum. “Andrea Ghez joins Donna Strickland, Maria Goeppert Mayer, and Marie Curie as the only women with that distinction.”

Half of the prize goes to the University of Oxford’s Penrose, whose research published in Physical Review Letters during the 1960s is considered the most important contribution to the general theory of relativity since its conception by Albert Einstein more than a century ago. In 1971, APS and the American Institute of Physics honored Penrose with the Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics.

The other half of the prize is jointly awarded to Genzel and Ghez, both APS Fellows, who have provided some of the strongest evidence to date that the compact object at the center of the Milky Way known as Sagittarius A* is very likely a supermassive black hole. Genzel gave an invited talk at the 2020 APS April Meeting where he described the culmination of nearly 30 years of observations of the star S2, revealing that it orbits Sagittarius A* just as Einstein predicted, in the shape of a rosette rather than an ellipse. Genzel is co-director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics and professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley.

Glennys Farrar, chair of the APS Division of Astrophysics, said: “I’m thrilled that the Nobel Committee has recognized the critical importance of the work of Genzel and Ghez, which established beyond a doubt the existence of a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, and the work of Penrose with Stephen Hawking, predicting the existence of black holes.”

“Their work has made pioneering use of adaptive optics on the Keck telescope, and it has led to the understanding that supermassive black holes inhabit the centers of many galaxies,” said Bucksbaum.

APS recognized Ghez, a professor of astrophysics at the University of California, Los Angeles, early in her career with the 1999 Maria Goeppert Mayer Award for outstanding achievement by a woman in physics. She presented an overview of decades of research on the Galactic Center at a plenary session at the 2019 April Meeting in Denver, CO.

“As often happens in science, a conceptual breakthrough relies on developing powerful new tools, which then lead to other discoveries,” said Farrar. “The precise measurements of the Genzel and Ghez teams have not only verified aspects of General Relativity that had never before been tested, but have also led to much more accurate knowledge of the location of the Solar System in the Galaxy which will be valuable in many other applications.”

“For science to advance requires unbounded leaps of imagination, but such leaps must be subject to rigorous observational examination,” said APS President-Elect Sylvester James Gates, Jr. “So we see two dichotomies, both Illustrated in this Nobel Prize, with Penrose’s work as an example of the first while the work of Genzel and Ghez illustrate the latter.”

This is the tenth consecutive year Physical Review Letters, the flagship journal of the American Physical Society, has been cited in the scientific background materials of the physics or chemistry prizes. A recent analysis revealed that, since 1995, 28.5% of Nobel-winning research in physics appeared in Physical Review Letters, outpacing other leading publications such as The Astrophysical Journal (11.2%), Science (5.6%), and Nature (4.7%).

Journals Nobel 2020 chart

“The Physical Review journals are among the most-read and highest-cited peer-reviewed publications in physics and related disciplines, broadly trusted and valued by researchers around the world for more than 127 years,” said APS Publisher Matthew Salter.

The Nobel Prize, first awarded in 1901, is widely regarded as the highest honor in science, economics, and literature. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 award ceremony at Stockholm City Hall will be streamed online in December. Laureates will receive medals and diplomas in their home countries. The Nobel Foundation has increased the prize amount to 10 million Swedish krona (about 1.1 million US dollars) for the first

Mathcart.com tutors help at risk students with online learning.

MathCart is a premier e-learning platform, where learners have resources to enhance math education and to develop critical math modeling concepts.

The novel Coronavirus has resulted in schools shut all across the world. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. Research suggests that online learning has been shown to increase retention of information, and take less time, meaning the changes coronavirus have caused might be here to stay.

However, Due to covid 19 restrictions, many students are struggling with learning online. MathCart is aptly positioned to lend its professional help in this regard with its top of the line math tutoring services.

MIT mathematician, Seymour Papert once quipped that “you can’t teach people everything they need to know. The best you can do is position them where they can find what they need to know when they need to know it.” What better place to position knowledge than MathCart.com, which is accessible to the majority in this Jet age. Electronic learning solutions have been known to offer more collaboration and interaction with experts and peers, as well as a higher success rate than the live alternative and MathCart.com epitomizes this fact.

MathCart’s interactive problems, along with expert teachers, allows students to approach math from an intuitive perspective with visualizations to support fundamentals. The company is replete with seasoned math tutors who have impeccable abilities in imparting knowledge to students, no matter how complicated the subject is. MathCart’s tutoring method includes strategic math support, visualized math concepts, personalized teaching curriculum, along with general tips for succeeding in distance learning.

A Sneak Peek Into the Flourishing Outsourced Drug Trials in India

Over the past decade, the big pharmaceutical companies have moved their clinical testings abroad. Among all others, India has become a choice destination—a goldmine for their operations.

A majority of the research on new drugs is carried out in the more developed countries (MDC). However, according to a recent study by Rabo India Finance, a subsidiary of Rabobank of the Netherlands, there is a 50-60 percent estimated cost of savings if the trials are held in developing countries. The contract research market is worth an estimated $10 billion while the international clinical trial business is worth a whopping $40 billion.

Just as India has become the premium destination for tech giants to outsource their software development needs, the country has also become a hot-spot for a clinical trial like no other country. The country is a fertile ground for this practice with copious, low-cost and English-speaking medical staff, a functional medical infrastructure, heartwarming reception towards foreign industry, and, perhaps, the most important factor: millions of poor citizens ever willing to try out new drugs. 

Despite the economic revenue it accrues to the country’s GDP, to an estimated $2 billion by 2021, there’s been a public outcry in some quarters against clinical trials in India, more so because it has slapped on the country, the denigrating nickname of “guinea pigs to the world”.

The major concern of most critics against this practice stems from the fear that U.S. pharmaceutical companies may be eluding regulatory controls by outsourcing trials to India rather than conducting them in the United States. Speaking about this, Tripti Tandon of Lawyers Collective, a legal group for HIV-positive people, said: “It is important that the regulations take into consideration the rights of the people on whom the tests are being carried out.” Lending his voice, Mira Shiva of the Voluntary Health Association of India said: Post-marketing surveillance needs to be strengthened to ensure that fake data has not been used to get a drug into the market.”

Consequently, Indian health authorities have posited, times without number, that they are on top of the situation. However, this may not be entirely true. In 2015 the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC), teaming up with the Johns Hopkins University, USA, conducted some cancer drug trials. Cancer patients were injected with experimental drugs without due clearance from the appropriate authorities. A special committee investigated the incident, and the matter dismissed.

Benefits of Reading with Children During COVID 19

Why you should read with your child during Covid-19

Have you considered reading with your children at home? Perhaps Covid-19 has presented a unique opportunity for you to do so. Reading with your children is a noble initiative that facilitates effective communication and interaction in your family. Indeed, the activity fosters a robust relationship between you and your children. Moreover, reading with your children accords them a sense of intimacy and well-being, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Doing so makes the children feel loved, and the attention received from parents helps them grow smart. Studies show that reading to your children improves their imagination and calms them when anxious and restless; thus, it is an essential undertaking during the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a parent, you play a pivotal role in your children’s cognitive, emotional, and social development when reading with them at home. Such an activity helps the minors to internalize the information and become better individuals in the future. While the Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating, parents have had an opportunity to spend more time with their children. Indeed, reading to your children improves their intelligence, listening skills and attitude towards studies. Consequently, such children take personal initiative to read by themselves as they grow up. Studies show that reading can boost the IQ of your child by six points.

Besides, reading with your children profoundly improves their vocabulary and the mastery of language, among other concepts. Children become exposed to a wide range of words and phrases, which hasten their learning trajectory as they read with their parents. Also, reading stories to your children prolongs their attention span and improves their concentration. Other than the regular lessons taught in school, reading with children grants parents a golden opportunity to teach their children vital life lessons. These lessons are crucial during a child’s development because they are adequately prepared to overcome the potential life challenges.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic presents enormous challenges, it has strengthened families’ bond as they spend more time together. Parents can now take advantage of the limitations of the Covid-19 pandemic to improve their relationship with the children by reading with them. Studies show that reading with your children improves their intelligence, their attitude and prolongs their attention span. Moreover, parents can improve their children’s emotional and social skills by reading and communicating with them. This noble initiative also calms children, especially during anxiety and restlessness. Perhaps, it is time you considered reading with your child during the Covid-19 pandemic.
