  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

  • Games Spot Reviews: The Sexy Brutale Review

    Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day believed he was in hell, but let's admit it: There are worse possible time loops to get ensnared in than having to spend your days reporting on rodent shadows and courting 1990s Andie MacDowell. In fact, consider The Sexy Brutale: you could end up reliving a single day at a fancy, sprawling casino mansion where you're attempting to save the lives of nine guests who get slaughtered by the staff during an annual masquerade ball.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Cosmic Star Heroine Review

    Cosmic Star Heroine makes a great first impression. Its introductory hours are all synths and saxes, flashy sci-fi espionage, and daring escapades lit by suffusions of neon and moonlight. There's no mistaking it for some imported decades-old classic, but it still managed to give me flashbacks of loading up untranslated PC Engine games and gawking at the interstitial artwork.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Review

    Previous entries in the Sniper Ghost Warrior series have been justifiably criticized for their stifling linearity. Missions would regularly guide you by the hand through one cramped corridor after another, with a succession of targets ripe for elimination along the way. It wasn't a formula conducive to the type of freedom and choice one might hope to find in a game focused on the act of long-distance sniping, and Polish developer CI Games has seen the error of its ways with the latest entry in the series.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Dragon Quest Heroes II Review

    Dragon Quest Heroes II is a JRPG on fast forward. The gradual addition of new party members, the rollout of plot twists, and other typical genre roadmarkers come at you at a fast clip. If it normally takes 100 hours to amass a kill count of 10,000 enemies, this game lets you reach such milestones in less than 10. And, as one of the many spinoffs of the 20-year-old Dynasty Warriors series, it retains the best elements of the franchise's trademark combat, where you decimate armies with rudimentary, albeit flashy, combos.

  • Games Spot Reviews: What Remains of Edith Finch Review

    The minute What Remains of Edith Finch puts its titular protagonist face to face with its slapdash Frankenstein's monster of a house, it seems the game is gearing up for a horror story, closer to Resident Evil than Gone Home. That's actually close to the truth in one sequence, but What Remains of Edith Finch ultimately tells a subtle tale with far more pensive ideas. It plays off a heightened sense of impending mortality, but terror never truly takes a physical form. These are simply the facts, presented as only the victims and witnesses could deliver them.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Puyo Puyo Tetris Review

    Video game mashups are nothing new, but Puyo Puyo Tetris is the most interesting one to come along in a while, bridging two puzzle series with distinct mechanics and rules. What you ultimately get are two great games and a surprisingly good mashup with numerous single- and multiplayer options at the ready. It's a robust package, and an excellent revival of two beloved yet stagnant series.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Outlast 2 Review

    Outlast 2's maniacal commitment to its core conceit is simultaneously its greatest strength and its greatest weakness. Like the original--which helped popularize first-person survival horror when it launched in 2013--Outlast 2 casts you as a hapless everyman with zero fighting skills and no tools beyond a camcorder. Your only option when confronted with grotesque, bloodthirsty murderers is to run and hide.

  • Games Spot Reviews: The Disney Afternoon Collection Review

    Capcom is big on cashing in on its extensive gaming history, so yet another blast-from-the-past package of 8-bit games from the company is no surprise. In this case, the theme is Disney--and a good reminder that, when Disney put its name on a game back in the day, it was a pretty sure bet you'd be in for a good time. Disney and Capcom had a great track record of solid NES titles based on beloved late-'80s/early-'90s cartoons, and now those 8-bit classics are available in one affordable package.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War III Review

    Dawn of War III is a game at odds with itself. Matches start with a lot of momentum and expand quickly before settling into a soft balance for long stretches. Careful control of elite warriors on the front line is essential, but so is constantly nurturing your base and marshalling upgrades for your armies. Despite that, Dawn of War III holds its own, offering delicious tooth-and-nail fights that will push both your technical skill and strategic aptitude to their limit.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

    For Mario Kart fans, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe might look like more of the same with small Double Dash-inspired tweaks. But thanks to a series of updates both big and almost unseen, it's the version of Mario Kart to get. If you don't own a Wii U or skipped out on Mario Kart 8 the first time around--or even if you've played it before--Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is worth your time. It plays beautifully on Switch in both handheld and docked mode, and its core racing is as exciting as ever.

  • Manchester in the vanguard of a materials revolution

    The University of Manchester’s position as a world leader in materials science is to be highlighted by a special lecture given by a professor who holds a prestigious title awarded by Her Majesty The Queen.

    The University of Manchester has been awarded a Regius Professorship of Materials and the inaugural holder of the title is Professor Philip Withers. This rare title is bestowed by the Sovereign to recognise exceptionally high quality research and teaching at an institution.

    As part of the celebrations marking this honour, Regius Professor Withers will give a lecture at the University’s National Graphene Institute on April 25 to an audience of leading academics and researchers; representatives from the community of supporters and funders of the University and its work; as well as industrial and manufacturing partners.

    Immediately before the lecture, the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Mr Warren Smith, as the Queen’s representative, will formally confer the Regius Professorship on Professor Withers.

    The celebrations will also feature an exhibition on materials science and its potential applications, including a little black dress featuring the wonder material graphene.

    Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Manchester, said: “It’s a great honour that our University’s world-leading research in materials science has been recognised with this prestigious royal award.

    “I am also delighted that our inaugural Regius Professor of Materials is Phil Withers. Phil has not only made a tremendous contribution to research in this highly important field but he has also been an exceptional academic leader.”

    Regius Professor Withers is set to take up the role of Chief Scientist for the Henry Royce Institute, which will be the UK’s world-leading centre for advanced materials research and innovation based in Manchester. Having been instrumental in establishing the £235m Henry Royce Institute, Professor Withers will, in his new role, lead the strategic development and implementation for Royce’s initial core research areas.

    The new Regius Professor of Materials says this internationally leading work places Manchester in the “vanguard of a materials revolution”. He explained: “We can look forward to metals that actively inhibit rusting; materials that help our bodies repair themselves; materials able to withstand the harshest environments; ‘super-batteries’ that last much, much longer; more efficient devices and transportation able to operate for much longer on a single charge; or smart clothing that responds to the environment.”

    This diversity of research and links to industry is helping to give Manchester its global advantage. Cutting edge work is being carried out in state-of-the-art Manchester-based centres of excellence such as the National Graphene Institute, the soon-to-open Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre and the new Henry Royce Institute for advanced materials.

    Professor Martin Schröder, Vice-President and Dean of the University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering, said: “This combination of outstanding leadership and first-class facilities are attracting the best physicists, chemists, biologists, materials scientists and engineers to Manchester – and they are now all working together to develop the materials of the future.

    “Thanks to Manchester’s pioneering spirit, the UK is now a world leader in the field of advanced materials – and this will help us to power our regional and national economies at a time of global opportunities.”

  • Phosphorene reveals its superconductivity

    A new atomically thin material similar to graphene has been proven to be a promising new superconductive material.

    Black phosphorous - a layered material, somewhat similar to graphite – has generated much excitement among scientists and engineers because of its many interesting and useful electronic and optical properties.

    Just as graphite is made up of millions of layers of graphene, black phosphorus consists of layers of phosphorene that can be isolated. New research now reveals phosphorene to possess properties as intriguing as graphene.

    Combining graphene and other new 2D materials such as phosphorene, which individually have excellent characteristics complimentary to the extraordinary properties of graphene, has resulted in exciting scientific developments and could produce applications as yet beyond our imagination.

    Now phosphorene is helping scientists to answer the question of whether materials consisting of just one layer of atoms can be superconducting.

    Superconductors conduct electricity with zero resistance and are always sought after due to their potential applications in sensors, energy-efficient power lines and magnets capable of generating large magnetic fields, such as those used in MRI scanners and levitating trains.

    Using phosphorene, a University of Manchester team led by Professor Irina Grigorieva clearly shows that atomically thin materials can be true superconductors as long as enough electrons are pumped into the layers.

    Atomically thin superconductors are desirable in miniature devices but also of much interest to scientists because they can be used to test ideas about the limits of the existence of superconductivity.

    Bulk materials often become superconducting if a sufficient amount of electrons is added and they start to strongly interact with each other.

    Superconductivity in one atom thick two-dimensional materials was discovered only a decade ago but the findings often referred not to isolated atomically thin layers but their bulk assemblies and the evidence was so far weak and sometimes controversial.

    In a report published in Nature Communications, scientists used a process called intercalation – essentially coating phosphorene layers in black phosphorus with different alkali atoms that donate their electrons to phosphorene. In each case this turned black phosphorus into a superconductor with exactly the same properties, irrespective of what kinds of atoms were used to add electrons to the layers of phosphorene.

    Prof Irina Grigorieva said: “Nothing like this was known before. This new understanding is important for developing atomically thin materials towards applications in electronics and quantum technologies.”

    Renyan Zhang, a PhD student who led the experimental effort, said: “Phosphorene and its parent material, black phosphorus, are in many respects similar to graphene and graphite. 

    "We expected that each electron-donating metal will produce a different superconductor, as is the case with graphene and graphite. But to our great surprise all metal donors produced exactly the same superconducting material, with identical properties.”

  • Parent-mediated therapy may help babies at risk of developing autism

    The earliest autism intervention study in the world has suggested that a parenting intervention using video-feedback for families with babies at family risk of autism may reduce the severity of emerging signs of autism. This study is the first of its kind to work with babies in their first year of life who have a sibling with autism and are therefore at higher risk of developing the condition.
