NUEVA YORK (AP) — En “Supernova”, Stanley Tucci interpreta a un hombre con principios de demencia que realiza posiblemente su último viaje con su compañero de vida, interpretado por Colin Firth. En una entrevista, Tucci cuenta por qué él y Firth intercambiaron papeles, su carrera como un “actor de carácter” y su costumbre de cocinar para sus compañeros de reparto.
By Dialogo February 04, 2013 The sophisticated electronics used by war fighters in everything from radios, remote sensors and even phones can now be made at such a low cost that they are pervasive throughout the battlefield. These electronics have become necessary for operations, but it is almost impossible to track and recover every device. At the end of operations, these electronics are often found scattered across the battlefield and might be captured by the enemy and repurposed or studied to compromise the Department of Defense’s strategic technological advantage. What if these electronics simply disappeared when no longer needed? The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced the Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR) program with the aim of revolutionizing the state of the art in transient electronics or electronics capable of dissolving into the environment around them. Transient electronics developed under VAPR should maintain the current functionality and ruggedness of conventional electronics, but, when triggered, be able to degrade partially or completely into their surroundings. Once triggered to dissolve, these electronics would be useless to any enemy who might come across them. “The commercial off-the-shelf, or COTS, electronics made for everyday purchases are durable and last nearly forever,” said Alicia Jackson, DARPA program manager. “DARPA is looking for a way to make electronics that last precisely as long as they are needed. The breakdown of such devices could be triggered by a signal sent from command or any number of possible environmental conditions, such as temperature.” DARPA has posted a special announcement for a Proposers’ Day to be held in advance of a full solicitation in the form of a broad agency announcement. Performers are sought to conduct basic research into materials, devices, manufacturing and integration processes, and design methodology that will enable a revolutionary shift in transient electronics capabilities. The program seeks to culminate in a technology demonstration that builds a circuit representative of an environmental or biomedical sensor that is able to communicate with a remote user. “DARPA has previously demonstrated that transient electronics might be used to fight infections at surgical sites,” said Jackson. “Now, we want to develop a revolutionary new class of electronics for a variety of systems whose transience does not require submersion in water. This is a tall order, and we imagine a multidisciplinary approach. Teams will likely need industry experts who understand circuits, integration, and, design. Performers from the material science community will be sought to develop novel substrates. There’s lots of room for innovation by clever people with diverse expertise.”
Mikel Arteta says Eddie Nketiah’s display against Manchester City was ‘extraordinary’ (Getty Images)‘He has an immense personality to play, confidence, he’s powerful and is developing in every area I think. I have a lot of faith in him.‘The trick here is to get them with the right environment around them. Not to put too much pressure on them. ‘We have a really young squad, a very inexperienced squad, and when you put that in certain parts of the pitch very close together, you can see that there are some deficits and the decision-making is not always the right thing to do.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘We are in a position that we have to accept that some things at the moment, in there, probably more than we would like, are going to be like that. ‘That’s the circumstances that we have but at the same time it’s great because it’s a great value for them to have these experiences and see themselves playing against that type of opposition.’Follow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
