What Do You Call the Grandparents?

What Do You Call the Grandparents?

Thanksgiving is this week, and Christmas is 31 days away (but who’s counting?), so as people gear up to see family, I’m curious: What do you call the grandparents?… Read more

Supreme Court

Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy called the man's arguments that he could be either Alito or Ginsburg "surprisingly compelling, but ultimately unconvincing."

parsley pecorino biscuits

parsley pecorino biscuits

This was my first summer having a garden and it coincided with the summer I hatched a new human and the themes of both keep blurring together: The goofy pride in growing things from seed. The occasionally overwhelming feeling that there are so many things and they’re all very hungry and counting on you to fix this. The twinge of sadness as they look less sprout-y and more robust. The urgency to not squander any of this.

what you'll need (plus some bonus herbs)

With that in mind, there’s the fact that a very warm fall has meant that instead of this garden looking near collapse, it’s going strong and the four billowing pots of herbs that remain are pressuring me to do something great with them before they meet their imminent frosty demise. Fried sage leaves on everything! Crisp rosemary flatbread all the time! Minced chives on every dish! Parsley… I mean, I like tabbouleh and all, but there’s no way I’m going to get through this. Let’s not pretend this made a huge dent, but 5 sprigs down is a respectable effort, right?

High-Performance Fiber-Shaped All-Solid-State Asymmetric Supercapacitors Based on Ultrathin MnO2 Nanosheet/Carbon Fiber Cathodes for Wearable Electronics

by Neng Yu, Hong Yin, Wei Zhang, Yuan Liu, Zhiyong Tang, Ming-Qiang Zhu

Flexible fiber-shaped supercapacitors have shown great potential in portable and wearable electronics. However, small specific capacitance and low operating voltage limit the practical application of fiber-shaped supercapacitors in high energy density devices. Herein, direct growth of ultrathin MnO2 nanosheet arrays on conductive carbon fibers with robust adhesion is exhibited, which exhibit a high specific capacitance of 634.5 F g−1 at a current density of 2.5 A g−1 and possess superior cycle stability. When MnO2 nanosheet arrays on carbon fibers and graphene on carbon fibers are used as a positive electrode and a negative electrode, respectively, in an all-solid-state asymmetric supercapacitor (ASC), the ASC displays a high specific capacitance of 87.1 F g−1 and an exceptional energy density of 27.2 Wh kg−1. In addition, its capacitance retention reaches 95.2% over 3000 cycles, representing the excellent cyclic ability. The flexibility and mechanical stability of these ASCs are highlighted by the negligible degradation of their electrochemical performance even under severely bending states. Impressively, as-prepared fiber-shaped ASCs could successfully power a photodetector based on CdS nanowires without applying any external bias voltage. The excellent performance of all-solid-state ASCs opens up new opportunity for development of wearable and self-powered nanodevices in near future.

Wearable, fiber-shaped, and all-solid-state asymmetric supercapacitors (ASCs) have been successfully constructed with a maximum operating voltage of 1.5 V using ultrathin MnO2 nanosheets and graphene on carbon fibers as positive and negative electrode, respectively. The fabricated fiber-shaped ASCs display excellent bendability and mechanical stability, and possess enough energy to power a CdS nanowire photodetector without applying any external bias voltage.

α-Arylation/Heteroarylation of Chiral α-Aminomethyltrifluoro-borates by Synergistic Iridium Photoredox/Nickel Cross-Coupling Catalysis

by Mirna El Khatib, Ricardo Augusto Massarico Serafim, Gary A. Molander


Direct access to complex, enantiopure benzylamine architectures using a synergistic iridium photoredox/nickel cross-coupling dual catalysis strategy has been developed. New C(sp3)[BOND]C(sp2) bonds are forged starting from abundant and inexpensive natural amino acids.

Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

Making light of it: A novel dual catalytic route to enantiopure benzylic amines is outlined, and it takes advantage of photoredox catalysis in conjunction with nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling. The starting materials are robust organotrifluoroborates that can engage, with an expanded range of densely functionalized aryl- and heteroaryl halides, in the title reaction.

Girls with Slingshots - GWS Chaser #184

New comic!
Today's News:

This strip was definitely influenced by the only nude beach I've been to, on one of the small cities of Cinque Terra with my friend-for-ife Val (who, incidentally, influenced Jamie and her relationship with Hazel a bit as well).

Here's the old strip, which was also in color but did not have clouds!!

The History of SQL Injection, the Hack That Will Never Go Away

by samzenpus
An anonymous reader writes with this history of SQL injection attacks. From the Motherboard article: "SQL injection (SQLi) is where hackers typically enter malicious commands into forms on a website to make it churn out juicy bits of data. It's been used to steal the personal details of World Health Organization employees, grab data from the Wall Street Journal, and hit the sites of US federal agencies. 'It's the most easy way to hack,' the pseudonymous hacker w0rm, who was responsible for the Wall Street Journal hack, told Motherboard. The attack took only a 'few hours.' But, for all its simplicity, as well as its effectiveness at siphoning the digital innards of corporations and governments alike, SQLi is relatively easy to defend against. So why, in 2015, is SQLi still leading to some of the biggest breaches around?"
