Scientists Create A Solar Cell By Printing Bacteria

  Scientists Create A Solar Cell By Printing Bacteria Scientists have used Cyanobacteria — bacteria that can turn light energy into electricity — to print circuits that can serve as solar cells by using just a simple inkjet printer. By using the bacteria, they have overcome the primary issue with conventional solar cells, which need constant sunlight to generate electricity.The solar cells printed using cyanobacteria can generate electric current both in dark and light.Cyanobacteria are micro-organisms that make food through photosynthesis. They use sunlight to create energy for survival, and which can be harnessed.

Simon Kinberg previously attempted to tell the iconic Jean Grey tale — about the telepath’s battle with demons in her own mind — with his screenplay for 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, but studio pressure squeezed her story into a reductive subplot. Kinberg, making his directorial debut, felt in his gut that this was the story that he needed to tell once Bryan Singer, who directed the previous two sequels, stepped aside. “[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to hand this to somebody else to direct,” Kinberg says.

EA forgot it was supposed to make fun video games

  EA forgot it was supposed to make fun video games The Star Wars Battlefront 2 ’apologies’ are making it worse  The project had to have felt like a home run during production. EA had one of the most popular licenses in gaming, and it could leverage that license to get players to spend, and then spend some more. It’s impossible to conceive that the game’s economy, which was horrid in the beta and upgraded itself into merely terrible during a series of emergency changes, was ever thought of as the most fun option possible.

Jean Grey Lights Up: <p>In order to properly visualize the firey transformation of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) into Phoenix, the new X-Men film has a longer post-production period than usual — nearly a year.

In order to properly visualize the firey transformation of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) into Phoenix, the new X-Men film has a longer post-production period than usual — nearly a year. Explains director Simon Kinberg, "I wanted the post time to deliver on the nuance of the visual effects, not just the scale of them. That takes time."

Set in 1992, about 10 years after the events of last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix opens with the X-Men, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), in a new, unexpected role: national heroes. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) even lands on the cover of Time magazine. But his growing ego puts the team at risk. “Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions,” Kinberg says. After they’re dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner)— the Phoenix.

  Report: Scot McCloughan grievance hearing could have serious implications for Redskins There could be big changes for the Washington Redskins after the season.&nbsp;ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio told Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan on Friday that he would not be surprised if coach Jay Gruden and team president Bruce Allen do not return for 2018. He also noted that a looming grievance hearing involving former general manager Scot McCloughan could prove publicly embarrassing for owner Dan Snyder and could be a prelude to changes.

X - Men : Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2, 2018. "This is probably the most emotional X - Men we've done and the most pathos-driven", McAvoy told EW .

Based partially on Chris Claremont’s comic, Phoenix will feature some of the series’ biggest set pieces to date, including the X-Men’s first trip to outer space. It’s also the most sinister, and somber, chapter in the saga and includes a massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise. “This is probably the most emotional X-Men we’ve done and the most pathos-driven,” McAvoy says. “There’s a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering.” The movie becomes a fight for Jean’s soul as Phoenix threatens to overtake her mind and divide the X-Men, particularly Jean and her mentor, Charles. “It’s about the butterfly effect of this thing happening,” says Turner, who studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare. “What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?”

All involved with the production of Phoenix last summer in Montreal wouldn’t know the answer as the experience on set was actually calm, an adjective not usually applicable to X-Men shoots. Ellen Page recently accusedLast Stand director Brett Ratner of homophobic and abusive behavior on the set of that film. (Ratner’s lawyer did not respond to EW’s request for comment.) Singer faced sexual assault allegations in 2014. Those charges — which Singer called “outrageous, vicious, and completely false” — did not stem from anything on an X-Men production, but his sets do have a reputation for drama. (On Dec. 4, Fox dismissed him in the middle of directing Bohemian Rhapsody, and though he’s credited as a producer on Phoenix, he has not been directly involved with the film.) “I had heard stories of these sets,” admits Jessica Chastain, who plays an otherworldly shapeshifter who comes into contact with Phoenix. “But working with Simon and Hutch and Sophie was the most loving, strong, happy set.” Adds Lawrence: “It was unrecognizable. Everything was on time. Everything was organized. These movies have always been fun amidst chaos, and now they were fun with no chaos.”
