US Holocaust Memorial, Iranian website launch Holocaust education project

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and IranWire.com, one of the most popular Persian language news websites inside and outside of Iran, launched on Tuesday ‘The Sardari Project: Iran and the Holocaust‘ that will broadcast articles and videos about the Holocaust, and Iran’s unknown role in helping Jews during this period.

The project was named after Abdol Hossein Sardari, an Iranian diplomat based in Paris who worked to save many Iranian and non-Iranian Jews after Germany occupied the country.

“Education is a critical step in countering the Iranian government’s Holocaust denial, antisemitic rhetoric, and suppression of information,” said Tad Stahnke, William and Sheila Konar director of international educational outreach in the Levine Institute for Holocaust Education at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. 

The series will feature 13 articles and nine videos, and will be available in both Persian and English. The content will be released through IranWire.com’s

Arm unleashes ‘Project Triffid’ to help deliver internet of things

The carnivorous triffid plant first entered the public imagination in John Wyndham’s science fiction novel in 1951. Almost 70 years later, the botanical predators have re-emerged as the inspiration behind battery-less sensors capable of delivering the internet of things (IoT).

“Project Triffid” was centre stage at Arm Holdings’ virtual developer conference in October as the UK-based chip designer discussed how its technology could be used beyond the low-power requirements of smartphone semiconductors in the virtually no-power world of IoT.

The inspiration came from radio-frequency identification (Rfid) tags — the billions of passive tags embedded in credit cards, supermarket shelves and pet collars that only wake up when passed over by a sensor that can read them.

Arm’s notion was that it could create a computational version of Rfid that could not only store data but use it. Power could be harnessed whenever a reader passed over the tag.

That would

  • Chromium is an important piece of software that helps run some of the most popular internet browsers in the world, including Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
  • You can also download Chromium and use it as its own internet browser, but it’s not stable and is missing many of the features present in modern browsers.
  • Chromium is open-source, meaning that anyone can take the software and make their own program using it.
  • Visit Business Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

Chromium, first released by Google in 2008, is one of the most popular software projects in the world. A vast majority of internet users use Chromium in some way — it’s the software unpinning both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

A contractor is suing the City of Morden over the failed Morenet project to provide high-speed internet to residents. In a countersuit, the city alleges he breached his agreement by ‘conducting unauthorized surveillance and monitoring of internet traffic through Morenet,’ and violated the privacy of customers.

A contractor hired to develop high-speed internet service for a southern Manitoba community violated customers’ privacy by installing “unauthorized surveillance and monitoring software,” the City of Morden alleges in court documents.

The allegation is made in a counterclaim filed by the city in October, in response to a lawsuit by Sergii Polishchuk and a former Morden city engineer over the cancelled Morenet project.

The counterclaim alleges Polishchuk not only failed to develop the internet service, but also carried out inappropriate surveillance activities under both the Morenet agreement and a separate agreement he had to provide IT services to the city.

Google’s Project Taara to deliver fast speed internet to Africans

Google’s latest attempt to power internet connectivity in Africa will involve invisible light beams transmitted at high altitudes.

Through “Project Taara,” Alphabet, Google’s parent company, is kicking off plans to provide high-speed internet over long distances using beams of light. Essentially, the project’s technology will allow for high-speed data transmission through invisible light beams between Taara terminals mounted on high up on existing towers or rooftops. Each link between terminals is projected to be able to transmit bandwidth of up to 20 gigabits per second and cover distances of up to 20 kilometers.

As part of a pan-African roll-out which will start in Kenya, Project Taara has partnered with telecoms operator Econet to equip its towers with Taara terminals to transmit beams and create links. The project has also been trialed in India and Mexico.

Joint Korean/Australian Project Targets China’s Rare Earth Control

A joint South Korean/Australian mineral processing research project is showing potential to eat into China’s dominance of the high-value and strategically-important rare earth industry.

While in its early days the Ziron Tech project has successfully produced two of the most important metals in the rare earth family; praseodymium and neodymium which are used to make the permanent magnets used in electric cars and renewable energy systems.

As well as producing samples of the metals weighing up to 18.5 pounds an agreement to construct a commercial plant producing up to 550 pounds a day was signed last week.

A long-time in planning the key to the Ziron Tech process is a unique orebody located near the city of Dubbo in the Australian State of New South Wales.

If the work in Korea leads to full-scale commercial rare
