Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog

Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn't even aware of it. SEE ALSO: Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Nature about his invention — an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The article and the photograph were shared on Nature's Twitter page.  Meet the man hoping to transform the way we gather data from the seafloor to detect the next big earthquake: https://t.co/GmICfBMSDR pic.twitter.com/zvRlwpyADX — Nature News&Comment (@NatureNews) June 21, 2017 While many found the article interesting, most people were busy obsessing over Paros' photobombing canine companion.

T-Mobile is having network problems across the country, reports show

T-Mobile is having network problems across the country, reports show

T-Mobile users across the country have woken up to widespread network outages. According to reports on the Down Detector and Twitter, thousands of users are having problems getting any data connectivity, even if a cell signal is still showing.

The Down Detector map shows reports across the country, with a concentration on the East Coast. It could be a problem with a regional data center, or a nationwide problem that isn't being reported yet on the West Coast, thanks to the time difference.

T-Mobile has not publicly issued a statement yet, but is responding to individual users on the official @TMobile Twitter page, saying that they're looking into the issue.

Some users say that turning LTE off can get data service working on 3G, but that's a temporary fix at best. For the time being, staying on Wi-Fi and turning your device on and off every hour or two is likely the best solution.

Assuming that the outage is related to a software issue in T-Mobile's network, you can assume that a fix is being worked on at speed. Turning your device on and off forces it to re-register on the local cell tower, which means you'll get connectivity back as soon as the problem is resolved on T-Mobile's end.

An asteroid is definitely going to hit the Earth, expert warns

An asteroid is definitely going to hit the Earth, expert warns

Space is a dangerous place to be, and since the Earth is in space, every living thing on the planet is at risk of eventually feeling its wrath. Asteroids are the most clear and present threat that our Solar System poses to us, and you only need to look at the scars on the Earth, our moon, and other planets in our neighborhood to see exactly how real that danger is. Now, a Queen's University Belfast researcher is warning that the Earth is definitely going to be hit, it's just a matter of when.

The expert, Alan Fitzsimmons, points out that an event similar to that of the 1908 meteoroid explosion over the Tunguska region in Russia's Siberia — which leveled a forest and damaged buildings but didn't result in any human deaths — could happen again, and if it did happen over a major city, the results would be devastating.

"Astronomers find near-Earth asteroids every day and most are harmless," Fitzsimmons reportedly said. "But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them."

It's a fitting warning as we approach June 30th, which is observed as Astroid Day. On June 30th, researchers and former astronauts will host a live stream to answer questions from the general public which are sourced from social media. You can bet there will be plenty of talk about the potential for collisions with near-Earth objects, so if such a thing interests you, it's a great time to get the facts straight from the experts.

Pentagon chief blasts N.Korea over US student who died

Pentagon chief blasts N.Korea over US student who died North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and US patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday. Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel. "To see a young man go over there healthy and, (after) a minor act of mischief, come home dead basically... this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility towards any human being," Mattis said.
