For electric vehicles to deliver the same reliability as gas vehicles they need lightweight yet powerful batteries.
To fully understand this process in their nickel-rich layered materials, the scientists needed to use multiple research techniques to assess the material from different angles.
To do so, Hu and his colleagues characterized the material at multiple research facilities, including two synchrotron light sources — the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) at SLAC.
F5 Networks and NGINX have announced a definitive agreement under which F5 will acquire all issued and outstanding shares of privately held NGINX for a total enterprise value of approximately $670 million, subject to certain adjustments.

Gus Robertson, along with NGINX founders Igor Sysoev and Maxim Konovalov, will join F5 and will continue to lead NGINX.
Google unveiled a platform a year ago that enable game developers to create location-based games based on its Google Maps technology.
So Google is releasing some improvements for the Google Maps Platform, including biome, elevation, and pathfinding.
Pathfinding gives developers access to the power of Google Maps’ routing algorithms to enable experiences in motion — anything from directing monsters to chase a player around, to flying a plane to drop off supplies at a safe house, to collaborating on missions through a futuristic city.
Organizations, by law, may not ask about an applicant’s age in an interview, a September 2018 AARP survey found that more than 90 percent of U.S. workers described age discrimination as “somewhat or very common” in the workplace, and 44 percent of older job applicants said they personally had been asked (illegally) for age-related information from potential employers.
Women live longer than men, so it’s fair to argue that they need more income to provide for their retirement.
The same research found that 43 percent of today’s women workers had at least one year with no earnings.
