Glacier National Park Offers More Than Glaciers

There was a time — in this northwest corner of Montana — when glaciers ruled the land. Crown of the Continent The abundance of the massive rivers of ice — and their runoff — created “a land of striking scenery.” That’s how American anthropologist, historian, naturalist and writer George Bird Grinnell described Glacier National Park, nine years before the land was set aside as a national park on May 11, 1910. Today, there are far fewer icy behemoths. And they’re all shrinking. “There are currently 26 glaciers in Glacier National…

Tillerson Offers to Meet With North Korea Without Preconditions

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday offered to begin talks with North Korea without preconditions, while pointing to China to ramp up pressures against Pyongyang, including a complete oil embargo amid heightened tensions in the Korea peninsula. “We’re ready to talk anytime North Korea would like to talk. And we’re ready to have the first meeting without precondition,” said Tillerson at the Atlantic Council-Korea Foundation Forum on Tuesday, while adding there has to be “a period of quiet” for talks to begin, “or it’s going to be very…

New study of ferroelectrics offers roadmap to multivalued logic for neuromorphic computing

Science Research lays out a theoretical map to use ferroelectric material to process information using multivalued logic — a leap beyond the simple ones and zeroes that make up our current computing systems that could let us process information much more efficiently. New study of ferroelectrics offers roadmap to multivalued logic for neuromorphic computing
