Researchers from MIPT have developed a prototype detector of solar particles. The device is capable of picking up protons at kinetic energies between 10 and 100 megaelectronvolts, and electrons at 1-10 MeV. This covers most of the high-energy particle flux coming from the Sun. The new detector can improve radiation protection for astronauts and spaceships, as well as advancing our understanding of solar flares. The research findings are reported in the Journal of Instrumentation.
As energy gets converted from one form to another in the active regions of the solar atmosphere, streams of particles—or cosmic rays—are born with energies roughly between 0.01-1,000 MeV. Most
Google disclosed the IP addresses of anyone who searched for an arson victim’s address to the federal agents, which investigators used to pinpoint the device used by the alleged perpetrator, according to court documents unsealed earlier in the week, highlighting another instance of Google submitting to a so-called “keyword warrant.”
Federal investigators used the data shared by Google to link Michael Williams— an associate of musician and accused sex offender R. Kelly — who allegedly set fire to the car belonging to a witness in the Kelly case, according to snippets of the court filings shared by Detroit News reporter Robert Snell.
“Keyword warrants” are a type of reverse search warrant in which law enforcement seeks data regarding all individuals

On June 8, 2020, research firm OSS Research published a scathing report about the Company entitled “Strong Sell on Tactile Systems: Bloated Stock Needs Compression Therapy.” In the report, OSS Research accused Tactile of (1) overstating its total addressable market by nearly $4.7 billion, (2) using a “‘daisy-chaining kick-back scheme’ that has resulted in rampant overprescribing and rapid market share gains at the expense of patients, insurers and the public,” and (3) concealing Medicare
The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is investigating complaints about “unsolicited” text messages and emails sent to promote the NHS COVID-19 contact tracing app, The Register reports.
The NHS Test and Trace app, which launched on 24 September and is based on the previously-rejected Exposure Notification framework from Apple and Google, has so-far been downloaded more than 14 million times.
In a bid to encourage more Brits to install the app, NHS Digital sent texts and emails to all UK residents over the age of 16 who had previously provided their contact details to a GP. As noted by The Register, those contacted had not specifically opted in to receive marketing communications regarding the NHS COVID-19 app.
