Acer and NVIDIA are redefining Ultrabooks

March,1 2012 - When it comes to those lithely powerful Ultrabooks, you can?t
be too
thin, light or powerful. Acer is pushing the performance envelope on
all three fronts with the Acer Timeline M3 Ultra ? the world?s first
Ultrabook to rock a dedicated GeForce GT640M.

Today?s Ultrabooks lack the graphics processing power to satisfy
gamers and power users. The Timeline M3 Ultra breaks the mold by
pairing the latest Intel Core processors with a discrete GPU based on
the next-generation NVIDIA Kepler GPU architecture. The GeForce GT640M
is based on the power efficient Kepler architecture in 28nm silicon
and boasts Optimus technology to reduce power consumption where it?s
most important ? an Ultrabook.

Thanks to NVIDIA and Acer, you can have high-end graphics performance
and the best battery life on the planet.

Expect to see more Ultrabooks featuring discrete GeForce graphics
cards in the near future. Your next Ultrabook doesn?t have to
compromise its multimedia chops ? demand a thinner, lighter and more
powerful machine like the Timeline M3 Ultra.

Clearly, the best Ultrabooks have NVIDIA GPUs.

New Moon, a Lunar Calendar

Moon is one of important space object in the moslem world, every religion event in moslem world start by a lunar position or in the common term, moslem using a lunar calendar, and in Indonesia, the debate most commonly happen during the month of fasting which is governed by the lunar calendar, and several person every year always have a thing to debate whichever the new moon already appear in horizon or not.
For second opinion here is for you to see if the new moon will appear in your area or not without seeing the sky, just for your consideration.

The Most Important Organism

It is estimated that between 70% and 80% of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by marine plants . Nearly all marine plants are single celled, photosynthetic algae. Yup, that's right, good ol' scum on the pond…green gak…..slip slimein' away. Even marine seaweed is many times colonial algae. They are a bunch of single cells trying to look like a big plant (see seaweed photo), but they are really individuals.

We need marine algae a whole lot more than they need us. Think about it….70% to 80% of all the oxygen we breathe comes from algae! Without them we would really be sucking wind, but not for long! At this point you may be saying, "Yo! What about the trees and other land plants?" Well, trees and other land plants are very important, no doubt about it. But for pure survival, we couldn't make it without algae.

Myth in our life (I)

Humans use only 10 percent of their brains
This media darling has been around for at least a century. Fortunately, it's just not true. MRI imaging clearly demonstrates—with fancy colors no less—that humans put most of their cerebral cortex to good use, even while dozing.

A dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's
Despite a habit of licking things no human would dare, Fido's mouth is often touted as scientifically more sterile. Truth is, oral bacteria are so species-specific that one can't be considered cleaner than the other, just different.

A falling cat will always land on its feet
Studies have demonstrated that, when dropped from most heights, cats will land gracefully on their feet. Results change only with cats dropped upside-down from a height of one foot or less. We're not suggesting you try this at home.

Chicken soup can cure the common cold
Cure is a strong word, but science suggests Moms around the world are still right in forcing spoonfuls of chicken soup down their kids' throats. Studies have found that the broth actually contains anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce congestion.

The five second rule
Having an arbitrary rule justifying the consumption of food dropped on the floor within a certain time frame is convenient, especially when said food is a brownie. Unfortunately, tests (and logic) confirm that germs will stick to most foods right on contact.

The Great Wall of China is the only manmade structure visible from space
There are several variations on this folkloric statement, and they're all quantifiably false. Astronauts can spot the Great Wall from low-Earth orbit, along with plenty of other things like the Giza pyramids and even airport runways. But they can't see the Wall from the Moon.

The fish called Humuhumunukunukuapua'a

This is not like a movie title, not that short, maybe this fish really want to be called just 'wanda', instead of Humuhumunukunukuapua'a by Hawaiian.
And why the name is that long ?
There are various translations of the word humuhumunukunukuapua'a including "fish with a snout like a pig." Another translation says that the name means (loosely) a fish put together in pieces like a jigsaw puzzle, with a face like a pig. Another rumored reason for the name is that when it is caught and brought out of the water, it snorts like a pig. One of its defensive characteristics is its ability to puff up somewhat, wedging itself between rocks or in coral. When it is brought to the surface, this air is released, making the snorting noise. The word "pua'a" in Hawaiian means "pig." According to this version, the name, humuhumunukunukuapua'a literally means "fish who comes out of the water and sounds like a pig."

Scientist called her Rhinecanthus rectangulus or in english Reef triggerfish.
