Sometimes called an “artificial sun” for the sheer heat and power it produces, the doughnut-shaped Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) that juts out on a spit of land into a lake in eastern Anhui province, has notched up a succession of firsts. Most recently in November, it became the first facility in the world to generate 100 million degrees Celsius – six times as hot as the sun’s core. Such mind-boggling temperatures are crucial to achieving sustainable nuclear fusion reactions, which promise an inexhaustible energy source. EAST’s main reactor stands within a concrete structure, with pipes and cables spread outward like spokes that connect to a jumble of sensors and other equipment encircling the core. A red Chinese flag stands on top of the reactor. “We are hoping to expand international cooperation through this device [EAST] and make Chinese contributions to mankind’s future use of nuclear fusion,” said Song … [Read more...] about China’s quest for clean, limitless energy heats up

The night of the elementary school talent show, we came home to celebrate with ice cream when my mother took out her iPhone to show a video she’d taken of my 10-year-old daughter’s performance. My daughter had played Ed Sheeran’s Perfect on the piano by ear and sung along. Despite her nerves, she got out there in the middle of the stage in a new dress with scattered sequins and sang her best, bowing to an audience of clapping parents before she walked offstage — an expression of relief and pride on her face.When I saw my mother’s finger hovering over “play” on her phone, my daughter leaning over her shoulder, I stopped her: “You know what... Let’s just let her enjoy the moment.”I’ve seen the way my daughter’s facial expression changes, her eyes squint slightly, and her neck pulls her head back just a little when she watches videos of herself. I knew that in my daughter’s mind she’d felt like a rock star … [Read more...] about Is the immediate playback of events changing how children create memories?
Gerald coping with‘withdrawal blues’ Back from almost two years playing Thuy in the Miss Saigon tour that started in UK and ended in Switzerland, Gerald Santos admitted that he’s experiencing (but coping well) with “withdrawal blues” (or “separation anxiety”). You can’t blame Gerald because he played the role 553 times, eight times a week, so it had become like second skin to him. “It’s a bit hard but I am managing,” Gerald told Funfare. “As the days go by, I feel that Thuy is getting farther and farther away from me so I’m missing him more and more. At lalo kong nararamdaman ‘yung sinasabing ‘withdrawal blues.’ Totoo pala ‘yon.” Together with three kababayan who also played principal roles in the Cameron Mackintosh-produced megahit musical…Leo Valdez reprising as The Engineer, Aicelle Santos as Gigi and Joreen Bautista as Kim…Gerald came … [Read more...] about Gerald coping with‘withdrawal blues’
