Orbital tuning dating
The four millennia of warmer temperatures are called the Holocene Climatic Optimum which was 1-2°C warmer than the Little Ice Age. Another classification divides the Holocene climatically into two periods: the Holocene Climatic Optimum (HCO, also known as Hypsithermal or Holocene Thermal Maximum), between 9,000 and 5,500 yr BP (although some authors only consider it from 7,500 yr BP after the 8.2 kyr event), and the Neoglacial period, between 5,000 and 100 yr BP, separated by the Mid-Holocene Transition (MHT) that roughly coincides with the start of the Bronze Age.
This climatic optimum was when global glaciers reached their minimum extent. Finally other authors divide the Holocene in three periods.
Today, I’m happy to announce one of the oldest mysteries on this site – in this space dating back to 2004 – has been resolved. Real Mahjong is a 4-player gambling game similar to Gin Rummy.
This is the answer to the question “Who, exactly, wrote the classic TRS-80 game Madness and the Minotaur? I’m going to explain it to you so that you, too, can be a marginally terrible player like me.
Quantum dots (QD) are very small semiconductor particles, only several nanometres in size, so small that their optical and electronic properties differ from those of larger particles. Many types of quantum dot will emit light of specific frequencies if electricity or light is applied to them, and these frequencies can be precisely tuned by changing the dots' size, shape and material, giving rise to many applications.
In the language of materials science, nanoscale semiconductor materials tightly confine either electrons or electron holes.
Said lead researcher Antonello Bonci: “Since we now know that Ritalin improves behavior through two specific types of neurotransmitter receptors, the finding could help in the development of better targeted drugs, with fewer side effects, to increase focus and learning” The researchers also observed that the drug strengthened the connections between nerve cells in the brain region called the amygdala, which plays an important role in learning and emotional memory.
Strengthened connections increase the efficiency of neural transmissions, which allows for faster learning.
Quantum dots exhibit properties that are intermediate between those of bulk semiconductors and those of discrete molecules.
” The game, as I’ve detailed elsewhere, has mystified and fascinated many of us old gamers. Read On → It’s late afternoon in Sotenbori 1988 and Goro Majima, nightclub manager, exiled Yakuza, and hyperintelligent thug is drafting Japanese tax policy.
Read On → A couple of people have asked me about the Mahjong minigame in Yakuza. Earlier in the substory, he rescued a nameless bureaucrat from angry Osaka businessmen through weaponized breakdancing and his GOD MODE baseball bat.
Their optoelectronic properties change as a function of both size and shape.
Larger QDs (radius of 5–6 nm, for example) emit longer wavelengths resulting in emission colors such as orange or red.
