How to clean air conditioner condenser coils
In satellite images, the fire clouds look like giant stalks of cauliflower with large, white puffs rising over darker smokestacks. Fire clouds are similar to regular cumulus clouds. Heat causes an air mass to rise into the atmosphere, where it collides with cooler air and the water vapor condenses into a cloud. However, the heat that creates regular cumulus clouds comes from the sun's reflected heat radiating from the Earth's surface, while the heat that creates fire clouds comes from open flames. … [Read more...] about Fighter Jet Captures Towering ‘Fire Clouds’ Over California (Photos)
The licensed technology, called passive magnetic levitation, departs significantly from the system that Musk theorized back in 2013. Musk’s Hyperloop design involves a low-pressure tube through which the system's trains, floating an inch above the track on skis ejecting compressed air, are propelled with the help of a magnetic field created by electricity-fed magnets on the tube’s internal surface. The HTT technology, on the other hand, is based on passive magnetic levitation, which relies on magnets placed on the underside of the passenger train in a Halbach array—an arrangement that focuses the magnetic field of a set of magnets on one side of the array while canceling out the field on the other side. Those magnetic fields under the train cause it to levitate as it passes over non-powered electromagnetic coils on the rail beneath the train at even low speeds created by an electric motor. … [Read more...] about Hyperloop company “exclusively licensed” passive magnetic levitation system
Shelter in placeOn March 16, six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area ordered residents to "shelter in place," a directive aimed at keeping people in their homes for three weeks, with the order widened to the whole state a few days later. It's now being implemented around the world. All nonessential businesses are shuttered, and with the exception of shopping for items like groceries and pharmaceuticals, picking up food and taking walks while maintaining a distance of six feet from others, locals are expected to stay inside. It's a fairly strict measure aimed at curbing community spread. … [Read more...] about Homemade masks, PPE, home testing kit and every other coronavirus term to know
Getting the product in the hands of US consumers will a challengeAll these things are minor inconveniences, and that's the critical issue here -- but for some users, even a small inconvenience feels like an insurmountable obstacle. Given that working third-party solutions do exist for maps/navigation, cloud photo storage, VoIP/video conferencing, and unified messaging, as well as all types of content consumption, means that many of the perceived gaps can be filled through partnerships. Huawei doesn't need to own the entire end-to-end of the experience like Google does to be successful. Indeed, Apple doesn't have all these similar services, and its end users have its choice of third-party solutions as well. … [Read more...] about Huawei P40 Pro: Android phone without Google?
