Why doesn't Helium freeze at 0K? - Physics Stack Exchange
You have been misled by the idea that temperature is a measure of energy. While this is approximately true at high temperatures, it is not correct at low temperatures. Temperature is actually a measure of entropy; the derivative of entropy with respect to internal energy at constant particle number and volume is inverse temperature. At very low temperatures, quantum mechanical effects become important, and even at absolute zero (0 K), the particles have energy, known as zero point motion. In helium, this zero point motion is large enough to prevent the atoms from sticking together as a solid - it remains a liquid. Above roughly 3.2 MPa Helium-3 becomes solid at high pressure. For Helium-4 it will become solid above ~2.5 MPa.

Avicii responds to Mike Posner's 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza' lyric - NME
“I would go back and forth between the backstage and the VIP area and then where the actual kids were. And most people didn’t know who the fuck I was in Ibiza except for this one guy who recognised me. He was like, ‘Are you Mike Posner?’ and he was all excited. He holds up this little bag of pills and is like, ‘You want one?’ And drunk Mike Posner was like, ‘Fuck it, yeah.’ So I took one and I had never done that before, and I felt amazing. Then when I came down I felt ten years older…”

[TD-9970] Disable WMM
It seems that some TP-LINK products enable the WMM function by default and can not disable it.

As I know WMM function can guarantee the packets with high- priority messages being transmitted preferentially. I think there is no need to disable the WMM function.



I have change my wireless settings from 11bgn to 11bg.
And then I can disable the WMM .

AirPlay with HomePod cuts out intermitten… - Apple Community
The “airplay cuts out and stutters” fix is to turn off WMM in your router settings. Do that and restart your router gateway (then double check that it’s indeed off again) and your airplay issues should be magically fixed. WMM is on by default and is supposed to prioritize voice and streaming content but it has never worked well with airplay. However, when you turn it off your WiFi network speed will be slower, but not enough to make a noticeable difference (to me at least). I think it caps at 54mbps? It’s a trade off - but it’s the only way to prevent the maligned airplay issues.

Maybe when airplay2 comes out, there will be a better fix but for now this is all I have found to work.

Re-consenting to marketing under GDPR? - Privacy, Security and Information Law Fieldfisher
One of the questions we’ve most commonly been asked in recent months is “does the GDPR mean we have to get fresh consents from our entire marketing database?”  In many (indeed, perhaps most) cases, the answer is “no” - though the explanation for this is not all that straightforward, and so the confusion here is easy to understand.

Solved: How to restrict data usage on phones on a shared plan - The EE Community
I went into the EE store today and I've signed up to this share plan deal and was told by the staff that I can set data allowance/limits for the other user via the EE app or the EE website. This sounded like something quite useful and so I covince my girlfriend to switch over too. However, as I got home and tried this, it was not case and now I feel that I have been mis-sold and lied to, just to get me to signup and which I now feel really pissed off about it. I mean If everyone has been asking or complaining about this feature then EE should do something about this it (like allowing or adding this feature in their app asap). Staff need to be trained about their products and their technologies much better and give geniune and accurate information rather than just the sales pitch. Need to build that customer trust and now I have to think twice about their service!

Glowinkowski Motivational Indicator
GMI considers what an individual chooses to do rather more than what they have a basic need for. GMI looks at how much endeavour the individual will put into doing something and for how long. Rather than being concerned with the fundamental needs of the lower tiers of Maslow’s hierarchy, satisfying safety and hunger GMI considers motivational drivers such as Power, Relationships and Achievement, very much more oriented towards the social motives identified by David McClelland. GMI reviews aspects of work that are sought out by individuals, e.g. practical, investigative, degree of security or tenure.

GMI is a highly reliable and valid measure of motivation. It is geared specifically towards application in the workplace. It is as useful to an individual as it is to an organisation, providing vital data to support decisions about career path, whether at the outset of that pathway or at points along it. It adds significant value to any assessment or subsequent coaching intervention GMI is a vital part of the jigsaw for ensuring the right people are in the right jobs.

Unlock an iPhone from Virgin Mobile.
If you want to unlock a Virgin Media iPhone, then this is for you. For security reasons, Virgin require you to register the iPhone that you wish to unlock with them before they carry out the service. You will also need to pay all charges owing on the account before they can unlock your phone. The process can take up to 30 days (sometimes longer!) and in most cases costs around £15. Their tariff page also shows that there’s a £50 deposit which needs to be paid, or you can go directly to DirectUnlocks to get it done a lot faster.

If you’re a Virgin Media customer uou will need to call Virgin to arrange an unlock, as they don't have an online form. The details are:

0345 6000 789 or just call 789 from your Virgin phone. You should refer to their tariff page and terms of service page for more information.

If you are not able to deal directly with Virgin, for example if you didn't buy your iPhone directly from Virgin, then there you can get your iPhone unlocked from DirectUnlocks. Unfortunately this can still take up to 2 or 3 weeks to happen, although in a lot of cases it's much faster. There is no need to register with Virgin mobile before using OfficialiPhoneUnlock.co.uk or to have paid off your remaining contract.

What can I do if the wireless network is unstable via my wireless router/modem router? - TP-Link
6. Change some settings on the router. If the issue still persists then you could try changing some wireless settings on the router. You will have to log into the router’s management page. 

One thing to try is to change to a different wireless channel. Under the wireless settings it is also important to check the Country/Region. If it is set to a different location from you, then you may come across similar issues with the wireless disconnection. 

Below is an example for wireless router. Please click on Wireless Settings below the setup menu. Change the Channel (channels 1, 6 and 11 are generally best, but any channel can be used).   Also, change the channel width to 20MHz which will provide you a more stable and less crowded wireless environment.

Click Save, reboot the router, and test for improvement in performance.

Castrol's view on mixing oils | Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs | Bob Is The Oil Guy
sent an email to Castrol asking about mixing grades within the same brand and also mixing across their brands.

In short, the only thing they say is ok in terms of mixing, is topping off with the same grade of oil. If you do this a lot, make sure it's the same formulation. Anything else in terms of topping off and mixing is not recommended. Here are the key points of the reply I got:

- For topping off: You can use any of their products / formulations so long as it is the same grade. They do not recommend topping off with another grade.

- They do not recommend topping off with a different formulation on a continuing basis.

- Do not recommend mixing different grades even in the same formulation.

- Do not recommend mixing formulations due to changes in viscosity that can develop. (This is something Shannow pointed out).

- They said that Edge gold bottle with Titanium FST is not the same as the Edge gold bottle extended performance.

How to Unlock an iPhone and use a SIM Card from Any Network - Macworld UK
Virgin Mobile
Virgin says any iPhone purchased from the company within the past year or so will be unlocked already, but some older iPhones might not have the same luck.

The good news is that all you'll need to do is update your iPhone to iOS 8 or later and it'll be unlocked for you. (Note that updating iOS will install the most recent version that your device is capable of running, so at time of writing most active iPhones will get iOS 11. This is fine for these purposes, and has lots of nice new features too.)

If your iPhone isn't compatible with a sufficiently recent version of iOS - that is, if it's an iPhone 4 or older - you'll be able to perform a full restore of your iPhone to unlock it. Don't forget to back up your data first, though.

Nobody knows what ‘digital’ supposed to mean
MEDIA workers talking about ‘digital’ do not have the slightest clue what it is, according to new research.

Researchers found that although ‘digital’ is widely accepted to be the future, nobody knows what the word means or whether it is just bullshit.

Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “I had a digital watch when I was 11. Is that somehow the shape of things to come?

“Nobody could explain to us what ‘digital’ means. It’s almost as if people who work in the media talk a load of bollocks.”

Internet trend analyst Nikki Hollis said: “Going forward it’s all about digital. If you’ve got a company I’d definitely advise you to start doing digital things in a digital way, and just generally being digital.

“I cannot stress enough that digital is here to stay, although I can’t be any more specific about that.

Cookies and User Identification  |  Analytics for Web (analytics.js)  |  Google Developers
In order for Google Analytics to determine that two distinct hits belong to the same user, a unique identifier, associated with that particular user, must be sent with each hit.

The analytics.js library accomplishes this via the Client ID field, a unique, randomly generated string that gets stored in the browsers cookies, so subsequent visits to the same site can be associated with the same user.

By default, analytics.js uses a single, first-party cookie named _ga to store the Client ID, but the cookie's name, domain, and expiration time can all be customized. Other cookies created by analytics.js include _gid, AMP_TOKEN and _gac_<property-id>. These cookies store other randomly generated ids and campaign information about the user.

Using cookies allows analytics.js to identify unique users across browsing sessions, but it cannot identify unique users across different browsers or devices. If your site has its own authentication system, you can use the User ID feature, in addition to the Client ID, to more accurately identify a user across all the devices they use to access your site.

This guide explains how to customize the cookie settings as well as how to set the user ID field to more accurately track users across sessions.

What "positive action" is permitted under discrimination legislation? | FAQs | Tools | XpertHR.co.uk
It is lawful under s.158 of the Equality Act 2010 for an employer to take action to compensate for disadvantages that it reasonably believes are faced by people who share a particular protected characteristic (ie age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation). Separate provisions allowing positive action in relation to recruitment and promotion in limited circumstances are contained in s.159 of the Act.

Positive action is lawful if it is taken to:

enable or encourage people who share a protected characteristic to overcome a disadvantage connected to the characteristic;
meet the needs of people who share a protected characteristic where those needs are different to those of people who do not have the characteristic; or
enable or encourage people who share a protected characteristic to participate in an activity in which their participation is disproportionately low.
The employer can encourage people from disadvantaged groups to apply for work, and can provide training to help equip them for the particular work, but the decision on whom to select must be made on merit alone, except in circumstances where the candidates are "as qualified as" each other and s.159 applies.

For example, an employer that has records that show that its employees from a particular racial group are under-represented at management level could run a management training course targeted at employees from that group. However, the employer could not favour candidates from that group, at the expense of other candidates, when recruiting managers (unless s.159 applies).

Section 159 of the Equality Act 2010 allows an employer to treat an applicant or employee with a protected characteristic (eg race, sex or age) more favourably in connection with recruitment or promotion than someone without that characteristic who is as qualified for the role. The employer must reasonably think that people with the protected characteristic suffer a disadvantage or are under-represented in that particular activity. Taking the positive action must be a proportionate means of enabling or encouraging people to overcome the disadvantage or to take part in the activity. Employers must not have a policy of treating people who share a characteristic more favourably; they should decide whether or not to take positive action on a case-by-case basis.

The position in relation to positive action in favour of disabled people is different because it is not unlawful to discriminate in favour of a disabled person and employers have a positive duty to make reasonable adjustments to compensate for disadvantages related to disability.

Article: Cutlery stainless steel grades '18/8', '18/10' and '18/0'
Compositions of '18/8', '18/10' and 18/0'

These figures relate to the chromium and nickel contents of the steel, respectively.

'18/8' is probably the most commonly used stainless steel and contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel.
This steel is also known as '304' (in the American AISI grade designation system) or 1.4301 in the European BS EN 10088 standard.
It is an 'austenitic' type of stainless steel and so is not (or only very weakly) attracted by a magnet.

'18/10' is a designation used on some cutlery and holloware as an alternative to '18/8'. This designation is claimed to indicate a better quality steel than '18/8', and is essentially the same as the '304 (1.4301) grade . In practice the "10" does not indicate an actual higher Ni content and is purely a marketing ploy.

'18/0' is a 'ferritic' stainless steel type, which is attracted by a magnet (like pure iron). This steel is known as '430' in the AISI system or 1.4016 in the European standard.
It is used where corrosion resistance is not too demanding as an alternative to the '18/8' 304 type. The chromium content is optimistically said to be 18% but is nearer 17%.

Applications for these grades

The austenitic and ferritic '18/8', '18/10' and '18/0' stainless steels cannot be hardened by heat treatment and so can only be used for knife handles, forks and spoons.
Hardenable martensitic types of stainless steel, like the ferritics, contain only chromium, but with additional carbon. This enables them to respond to hardening heat treatments and so they can be used for knife blades.
The best quality table knives are made in two pieces using a martensitic blade and an austenitic (18/8 or 18/10) handle, bonded together.

Less expensive cutlery is often made as single piece martensitic knives, forks and spoons. This steel is not as costly, as it does not contain the nickel of the 18/8 - 18/10 types, but consequently has lower corrosion resistance. The corrosion resistance of cutlery made in this way should however be adequate for normal tableware use.
Cutlery manufacturers may choose to limit 'life' statements or guarantees on these lower cost pieces.

More information can be found on cutlery at the Cutlery and Allied Trades Association website.

Discontinuous Innovation Definition from Financial Times Lexicon
Radical innovation and discontinuous innovation are synonyms. Disruptive innovation used to be a synonym until 1997. Since then the term has been strongly associated with Christensen’s model. Incremental innovation is the opposite of radical innovation.

june 2017
What is the difference between 'disruptive innovation', 'radical innovation', 'discontinuous innovation' and 'breakthrough innovation?' - Quora
I would say:

Disruptive innovation, as defined most articulately by Clayton Chistensen,  represents a new product or service that enters at the low end of the market and gradually moves up-market, displacing existing, established products. The change driving this disruption may, in itself, be a minor or incremental technological innovation.
Radical innovation represents a major technological breakthrough.
Discontinuous innovation is a new technology applied to solve an existing need in a new way. The HP Inkjet printer is the classic example here, having displaced earlier impact printhead technologies with a new and better way to put ink on paper.
Breakthrough innovation is an "out-of-the-blue" solution that cannot be compared to an existing solution. Sterolithography, or 3- dimensional printing, applied to model creation (as opposed to the old bench-tech, hand-crafted approach) would be a good example here.

sectioning - How to add an extra level of sections with headings below subsubsection - TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange
I have a document which requires many levels of sectioning. I have sections, subsections and subsubsections, but require one more level below that. I can't change the sections to be parts and move everything up a level, as this document will eventually be included in another document which has parts/chapters already.

I see that the \paragraph command is used for defining the section level below subsubsection, but that doesn't produce headings in the same way that subsection and subsubsection do. Is there any way to either (1) change the \paragraph command so that it works like subsubsection but just adds another number - ie. 1.2.3.4 or (2) create a \subsubsubsection command to do the same thing?

Powering Ring Doorbell without doorbell kit? - Devices & Integrations - SmartThings Community
I had a similar situation, Ring Video Doorbell and no pre-existing setup. I bought the transformer from B&Q, Byron Transformer 8V, Product code: 5013529777006 and wired it up, without issue and without Resistor.

At first the system was charged to around 55% and the software recognised that it was hardwired and charging, however in the first few days 'hard use' of the ring the charge was declining.

I then read about the resistor, searched Maplin etc and they said that they didn't do any at the resistance needed, and it was a VERY LARGE resistance BTW.
I then found RS Components did a similar one just for a few pounds so went ahead and bought it.
part number: 8506424, Manufacture part: HL05006E25R00JE, Wirewound 25ohms, power 50W, tolerance 5%
http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/through-hole-fixed-resistors/8506424/?sra=pstk59

Then it turned up and it is massive so not quite sure it is the right thing after all. (about 100mm long and 10mm diameter) Anyway, I went to install it yesterday and checked the system health and its 95%, so seems to be charging correctly without this resistor, so I think I'll hold off installing as I'm not sure it is needed at the moment.

How many watts does the Ring Doorbell draw? : ringdoorbell
I wouldn't worry too much about wattage1, since AC loads will pull only the current they require. Most transformers should allow at least 10A of current, which should be far more than 2 Rings will need. Your house wiring probably will only allow 10-15A (check the breaker or fuse on the circuit to confirm) anyways.

Doesn't using resistors serial to LEDs all the time waste a lot of energy? - Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange
Yes, and no. When current passes through the resistor, it generates heat and therefore wastes energy. However, if you took the resistor out (and therefore drove the LED at a higher voltage) you'd be driving more current through the circuit and thus actually burning more power than with the resister in place.

Remember that with constant voltage, current is inversely proportional to resistance. The more resistance you inline into the circuit, the less current you pass, and therefore the less power you consume. So while the resistor itself plays a part in generating heat in the circuit, its presence there actually means that less heat will be generated overall.

Like Totally Whatever by Taylor Mali (Remixed w/ Transcript) - YouTube
In case you hadn't realized,
it has somehow become uncool
to sound like you know what you're talking about? You know?
Or believe strongly in what you're, you know, saying?
Invisible question marks and parenthetical “you know?”'s
and “you know what I’m saying”’s
have been attaching themselves to the ends of our sentences?
Even when those sentences aren't, like, you know, questions?

Ending A Statement With A Question Mark?
“In case you hadn’t realized, it has somehow become uncool to sound like you know what you’re talking about? Or believe strongly in what you’re, like, saying? Invisible question marks and parenthetical ‘you know’s and ‘you know what I’m saying’s have been attaching themselves to the ends of our sentences? Even when those sentences aren’t, like, questions? Declarative sentences, so called because they used to, you know, like, declare things to be true, as opposed to other things that are, like, totally... not?” -  Taylor Mali
