How Scientists Weigh Stars

How Scientists Weigh Stars

Weighing stars

Stars appear from earth as tiny shining dots. According to scientists, stars are huge balls of hot gas. The latest technology is allowing scientist and astronomers to measure the mass of stars. Recently, astronomers made a precise measurement of star called “white dwarf”. From the measurement, they concluded that the star has reached the end of its life circle. Most people would really want to know how exactly they manage to measure the mass of gaseous spheres light years away.

The technology behind going into space and measuring the stars is quite amazing. Online casino gaming has been made easier with the help of technology too but the tech is not as amazing. Even though you can now enjoy your favourite online casino games everywhere and whenever you feel like. Smart mobile devices and PCs have made this possible visit casinoaus.com for casino games. A professor of engineering physics explained that the measuring of stars is being done with the use of gravitational forces.

The professor explained that you can measure the mass of Jupiter if a satellite is in orbit around Jupiter. This is done by measuring the effects of the plant’s gravity on the satellite’s orbit. He pointed out that such estimates can also be used for stars. Astronomers detect planets orbiting stars on the other side of the Milky Way. This is done by measuring tiny changes in the velocity of the stars.

Instruments such as NASA’s Kepler space telescope can detect orbiting stars. These measurements provide the astronomers with helpful information on the stars masses.

There are other methods to measure the masses of stars. These include using its light spectrum. Oswalt, the professor, said that this method depends on the model of its atmosphere which you can never know it’s correct. There is a new technique that had been discovered of measuring masses of stars. The recently discovered technique has been put in the online June 7 journal for scientists.  The technique does not only allow the measurement all-stars but of most celestial objects inherently dim wow dwarfs, black holes and rogue planets. The technique depends on the influence of gravity exerted on the light.

Huxley, Orwell, and Modern Technology

Huxley, Orwell, and Modern Technology

Huxley’s 1931 novel A Brave New World depicts a weird and wonderful future that’s a dystopia masquerading as a utopia. An oppressive world government controls a person’s function in life from cradle to grave and keeps the masses blissfully intoxicated through Soma pills, encouraging people to lead debauched lifestyles.

Comparisons have often been made between Huxley’s vision of the future and Orwell’s 1984 published in 1949. Orwell envisions a fractured world ruled over by rival polities, who maintain a constant state of war in order to terrify their citizens into complacency and obedience.

American cultural critic and author Neil Postman has argued since the 80s that A Brave New World is nearer our reality than 1984 because of the way we “amuse ourselves to death”, to borrow the phrase of one of his books. Numerous elections across the world in recent years have seen anti-establishment candidates and parties winning, indicating that en masse we’re more afraid of a 1984-style global elite infringing on our freedoms in the name of security.

One of the features both books have in common however is the ubiquity of and our reliance on modern technology (or future technology as Huxley and Orwell would have seen it). A Brave New World predicted low-cost international travel and 1984 describes Skype in everything but name. The world of tomorrow that was predicted by Soviet communism and American capitalism alike is very much upon us, despite the lack of flying cars.

Cars themselves are indeed a good indication of how much technology has changed and continues to change our lives. At the moment, driverless cars are threatening professional drivers through seemingly continuous improvement. Still years or decades away from becoming the norm, the concept itself is no longer sci-fi.

Even the economy itself has changed. With the advent of the online marketplace in the 1990s, more and more industries are moving online. Companies like America’s Paypal or China’s Alibaba focus simply on moving money round the world digitally (though the former also hosts auctions and sells goods).

With the arrival of Bitcoin nearly a decade ago and its phenomenal growth in recent months, even traditional currencies are being forced to rethink their strategies. Worldwide, iGaming companies in particular are accepting payment in the cryptocurrency, with Bitcasino for Canadian players the biggest crypto-casino in its niche. The website, which offers players a 100% bonus on a first deposit, has abandoned fiat currencies altogether.

Using Bitcoin as an everyday alternative to the dollar may never come but, like driverless cars, there’s quite enough buzz for individuals and industries to be taking notice.

Perhaps the most obvious example of technology’s impact on our lives is in communication. When once it was the norm to wait for 30 minutes if a friend was running late or give that letter another few days to arrive, we now phone or text each other at the slightest delay or whim and we expect emails to be answered within hours.

Whether one is more of the opinion that Orwell’s fear drives our society or that Huxley’s hedonism is what makes the world go round—or perhaps a more positive outlook all together—no one can deny that old sci-fi concepts are now commonplace, completely normal, and perhaps even banal.

Gambling on Smartphones Expected to Grow in the Next Several Years

While the title of this article might make it sound as though gambling on smartphones is not all that prevalent just yet, it is. The focus here is on just how much it’s expected to grow in the next few years.

Mr. Green Going Realistic with New Partnership

Mr. Green Going Realistic with New Partnership

Realistic Games is an award winning game supplier that has been receiving a great deal of attention (and for good reason) in recent years for its online slots and other gaming excitement. Mr. Green has now agreed to a new partnership deal with Realistic that will provide more distribution for the company, and it’s considered a win-win for both sides.

The entire catalogue of games by Realistic is now going to be available with Mr. Green. Mr. Green is one of the most successful casino brands to emerge in recent years. In fact, Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris recently commented, “We are extremely pleased to be providing our games to Mr Green, who have emerged in recent years as one of the most successful casino brands on the market.”

He went on to add, “We’re very confident that their customers will be engaged and entertained by our products, no matter what device they play them on, and we’re particularly pleased to be able to offer them our table games.”

Mutual Respect

The feelings of respect between these two companies was mutual, with the Head of Casino at Mr Green, Andrew Crosby, saying, “Realistic Games is a respected supplier in the market and I’m pleased our players will now benefit from being able to play their great games. Our aim is to have the most comprehensive casino offering and by adding Realistic’s content to our portfolio we have slotted in another large piece into the jigsaw.”

A strong addition, this means any Mr Green casino review is going to be bolstered by so many new game options for the enthusiast.

Mr Green Is Stronger Than Ever

When people are interested in playing casino games online, they certainly have numerous options about where they can go. Mr Green is one of them, but the key difference is the Mr Green Live Casino offers dozens of tables with live roulette, blackjack, and baccarat.

There are numerous reasons why people may not be able to get to a casino in person, but with the Internet and modern technology, it’s possible to bring the look and feel of a live casino right into their home, office, or bus or train (wherever they play from their tablet, laptop, or smartphone).

Something for Everyone

What makes Mr Green such an attraction for many avid casino gaming fans is the realism. Whether it’s about slots or the table games, roulette, or one of the other all time favorites, Mr Green is one of the best at distributing the most compelling, inspiring, and thrilling casino games throughout many parts of the world.

Between the wide range of suppliers and providers, there will be something for everyone, and that is bringing in greater appeal to the masses who look to online casino games as a bit of an escape, some serious fun, and for a chance to win some extra cash when they play.

Bringing in another powerhouse like Realistic Games is nothing short of a great decision and one that will continue to elevate Mr Green to the upper echelon of online gaming.

5 Slot Games Made After Popular T.V. Shows

5 Slot Games Made After Popular T.V. Shows

There are hundreds of slot game themes: Although they are usually about ancient Egypt and pirate culture, it is often possible to find slot machines that are adapted from television shows. These ones are “official” games because you can find characters, music, and even sound effects of the TV show in the game. Because they are developed with license agreements, developers are often the same. IGT is the leader in this regard. Just as the slot machines based on Marvel superheroes are always developed by Playtech, slot machines adapted from TV shows are mostly produced by IGT. So, what are the best examples of this special category of slot machines? What bonus features and awards do they offer? Let’s take a look together. Continue Reading

The New Las Vegas Raiders Will Allow Sports Betting

The New Las Vegas Raiders Will Allow Sports Betting

Las Vegas, NFL and betting, that’s a perfect combination for sports lovers. In 2020 it is scheduled for the brand new Las Vegas Raiders stadium to be completed. And, since sports betting is legal in Nevada, the officials are looking into incorporating a little bit of it directly at the new stadium according to sbat.com.
Even though the lease for the stadium says that language like “gambling” or “gaming” will be prohibited, it says nothing about mobile betting apps, so access to them is not going to be blocked right there, at least to those that are legal in the state according to ESPN.

State’s Casinos and Sports Books are thrilled
Those that are concerned the most with this are the existing casinos and sports books in the state. They expect for the state to allow betting to take place directly at the stadium, which means you may be able to bet on the same games that you are attending.
At the moment the NFL’s spokesman Brian McCarthy has stated that the “Raiders will have to abide by the rules of the league when it comes to betting”, but he didn’t say anything specific about what the rules may be. The commissioner Roger Goodell on the other hand pointed out that this won’t mean that the Raiders will be removed from the betting boards of the sports books in Nevada.
All of this means live betting while watching the game is a likely outcome, which is pretty cool and awesome, something that Europeans are allowed to do all year round while attending soccer, basketball or other games.

Daily Fantasy Sports?
Since 2015 the state’s attorney general decided that daily fantasy services like FanDuel or DraftKings will require a gaming license if they wanted to serve their products. Naturally, since they opposed to the fact that their services may be considered gambling, they never applied for a gaming license.
The only available daily fantasy sports service in the state is USFantasy whose games can be played in some of the sports books across the state. USFantasy will probably be the only such service in the future too because the state officials have very little desire to change the gambling laws regarding fantasy sports.

Betting Reality
What we can be sure about is that the outcome of betting on the Raiders stadium is an almost certain one. Despite the league’s constant opposing to sports betting, they haven’t opposed so far for moving an NFL team to the only US state that allows sports betting.
NFL games have been played in London too, a city where sports betting is allowed and thriving, although the Wembley betting kiosk are closed when NFL is played. But, it’s expected for the NFL to give some push back on this, especially on the mobile sports betting apps that are legal through geolocation, which means blocking sports bettors inside the stadium that want to access the apps they use for betting on sports. But, we will see.

4 Things You Can Do JUST Like Justin Bieber

4 Things You Can Do JUST Like Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s kinda doing alright for a 23-year-old. He’s got a net worth of $225 million, which means you could say he earns a bit more than the average 23-year-old (many of whom still can’t afford to leave their parents’ basement). The hit singer and everyone’s favorite good-boy-gone-bad is living the life that many can only dream of. But, dream no more! He’s only human, meaning that you can do at least some of the same stuff as him (and no, we don’t just mean breathing). Are you a human? Congrats. You can do the following. Continue Reading

Advanced Casino Technology is the Way Forward

Advanced Casino Technology is the Way Forward

NetEnt Leads the Way with the First Virtual Reality Slot

The online casino industry has made incremental progress to present itself as a real alternative to traditional gambling. Now that so many people have made the transition from brick-and-mortar casinos to the online environment, Internet competition has intensified. Not only operators, but also software developers compete for customers and try to come up with something different. NetEnt is once again at the forefront of innovation and it is ready to set an important milestone with a new virtual reality slot.

The leading provider of digital casino solutions plans on bringing an iconic slot to the realm of virtual reality. The decision to choose Gonzo’s Quest is not a coincidence, since this is one of the most popular five reel video slots. This is a bold new step into uncharted territory, but one that shows a lot of promise and carries fewer risks. Technology has evolved enough for online casinos to support VR games and get players fully immersed into the gaming atmosphere.

Virtual Reality Takes Games to the next Stage

The online casino industry isn’t the only one to positively respond to the advancements made by virtual reality technology. Videogame developers are going to great lengths to produce first-person shooters and adventure games compatible with the latest VR sets. Now that the gear is not only reliable but also inexpensive, such games can create a trend. Online casinos are booming in popularity as can be seen here, and they require even less processing power, since slots, table games and video pokers already run smoothly on mobile devices.

NetEnt representatives were happy to announce the imminent release of Gonzo’s Quest for virtual reality. They are confident that WebVR technology will quickly become the next big thing and will shape the future of online gaming. Players got the chance to check out the game and ICE Totally Gaming and it is expected to be released across the entire NetEnt network in the second quarter of 2017.

When the President-Elect Changed his Mind

When the President-Elect Changed his Mind

In American politics, the only constant these days is change. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, since that’s what most people have voted for – one can’t be sure this was what they had in mind, though, but this is the situation we have to work with. Change is constant and has been a constant in our lives even before comedian John Oliver’s favorite topic occupied the recently vacated property at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Yet the inhabitant of the property has been seen to change – especially his mind – quite frequently in the last few months, not to mention in the years prior to his ascension to the pinnacle of political power.

Four Things You Really Didn’t Know You Could Do Online

Four Things You Really Didn’t Know You Could Do Online

The World Wide Web is full of wonderful – but often very weird – things. Whilst there are undeniably some dark corners to the internet, there are also some downright hilarious and strange ones, too. We’re all online every day, often quite literally incessantly. But regardless of the number of selfies you have posted, likes gained and pins you have on Pinterest, there still are lots and lots of things we suspect you don’t know you can do online. Isn’t it time you shake things up a bit? Here are just four of them.

You Can Rent A Husband

“Ev the Handyman” (CC BY 2.0) by massless

Woah, there. Minds out of the gutter, please! Renting a husband is actually a really smart idea, particularly for all those lady executives out there who have a million and one other things to do than stuff around the house! Whether you’re a single parent, a career machine, or anything in between, sometimes it can be a bit of a blessing to have a man around. That shelf that you’ve been meaning to put up, or that fuse you just can’t figure out how to replace? He’ll do it. And the best bit? You can kick him to the curb when he’s done! And let’s make it clear: you can hire one of these handymen regardless of your gender or sexual preference too.

You Can Handle Invisible Money

Alright, alright… it’s exciting, but before you get your hopes up too much, there’s no invisibility cloak available like in Harry Potter (yet, but there soon might be). However, you can try your hand at using Bitcoin, which is arguably the most up-and-coming currency on the market. Online gambling is massively popular, but that can sometimes mean worrying about whether your money is safe online. The intangible digital currency of Bitcoin takes most of the safety and privacy concerns associated with using your cards online out of the equation. Yes, Bitcoin doesn’t exist as banknotes or coins at all. While it’s still accountable and perfectly usable, it’s in fact a sophisticated series of numbers, which all have to go through a digital ledger to be verified as a transaction. The technical dets are quite complicated, but the point is that this invisible money can be used to do all sorts of things online, including betting on sports like football and rugby. In fact, sites just like Sportsbet have chosen to go all in on Bitcoin, offering their services exclusively in this type of money which kind of doesn’t even feel real, since it never even touches your hands!

You Can Become A Lord Or Lady

Ever wanted to sound a bit posh? There’s no better way to do it than simply becoming a Lord or a Lady. It’s one of the best ways to gain respect without even showing your face, and, you guessed it – it’s easily done with just the click of a button. It used to be only those born into aristocracy who were able to boast such titles, through inheritance. A lucky few had the title bestowed upon them by royalty. However, these days, you can get your own fancy title in front of your name – so why not ditch the ‘Mr’ or ‘Ms’? UK law says you can call yourself anything you like, apparently… although what your friends will call you after they hear about this is another matter entirely!

You Can Get A Plush Replica Of Your Pet

“Blender Pet Again” (CC BY-SA 2.0) by DannoHung

It’s a fact – some of us are just way, way too attached to our pets! Whether your bundle of joy is far away or has sadly passed (or your pet is fine but you just can’t get enough), there is a solution for when you’re feeling cheated out of its cuddles. Clone it, of course – no, we don’t mean actual cloning, that’s too much for us, both ethically and financially. As if this wasn’t already the most obvious solution in the world, you can now get your very own stuffed replica, which will be able to give you love long after your real one can. Okay, sure, it’s not sentient. But hey, at least it doesn’t need to be fed (and it won’t ruin your carpets, either)!

There are some pretty awesome alternatives out there to mindlessly scrolling through social media – and these are just a few. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen online?
