Zap Energy, a fusion energy start-up working on a low-cost path to producing electricity commercially, said last week that it had taken an important step toward testing a system its researchers believe will eventually produce more electricity than it consumes.

That point is seen as a milestone in solving the world’s energy challenge while it moves away from fossil fuels. An emerging global industry composed of almost three dozen start-ups and heavily funded government development projects is pursuing a variety of concepts. Zap Energy, based in Seattle, stands out because its approach — if it works — would be simpler and cheaper than what other companies are doing.

Today’s nuclear power plants are based on fission, which captures the energy released by splitting atoms. In addition to intense heat, byproducts of the process include waste that remains radioactive for centuries.

Not a cyberattack. Swathes of the Internet knocked offline on Tuesday after ‘service issues’ at infrastructure provider Cloudflare

Internet infrastructure provider Cloudflare has resolved a problem that resulted in widespread online outages on Tuesday.

The ‘service issue’ actually resulted in hundreds of websites being knocked offline, including Discord, Omegle, Shopify, NordVPN, and National Rail Enquiries to name a few. Users of Microsoft Outlook and 365 also reported delays and connection issues.

Cloudflare is a US content delivery network, and its services include helping firms fend off denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, which typically involve overloading a site with large amounts of junk traffic.

Cloudflare explanation

The firm admitted the problem on Tuesday in a series of tweets, saying that the outage impacted traffic in 19 of its data centres.

Tech companies as big as Netflix have slashed jobs this year, with some citing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and others pointing to overhiring during periods of rapid growth. Robinhood, Glossier and Better are just a few of the tech companies that have notably trimmed their headcount in 2022.

To keep tabs, we’ve compiled a list of U.S.-based tech companies that have laid off employees so far this year. 

New additions in the past week include Zumper, Socure, and Notarize.

Founded by Julia Somerdin in 2017, the startup Labby has created MilKey, a way to help dairy farmers monitor the health of their cows. Credit: MIT News

Startup company has developed an optical milk scanner based on materials-sensing technology that dairy farmers can use to measure the health of their cows.

Around the world, dairy farmers have an information problem. To get the most accurate measurements of cow health and milk quality, many have to ship milk samples to labs or wait for a technician to come to the farm to collect milk samples from each cow.

Now the startup Labby is helping farmers get a clearer picture of their cows’ health with a device that can test milk from individual cows in less than 10 seconds.

Labby’s device sits at the front of an analytics platform that can help farmers detect diseases before they spread to the rest of the herd. Down the line, it could also…

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden nominated the former head of two federal science and engineering agencies to be his science adviser, who if confirmed by the Senate, will be the first woman, person of color and immigrant to hold that Cabinet-level position.

Biden nominated engineer and physicist Arati Prabhakar, who during the Obama administration directed the James Bond-like Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) which came up with the Internet and stealth aircraft, to the science adviser job, which also includes running the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Prabhakar helped kick-start work in DARPA that eventually led to the type of RNA vaccine used to develop shots for COVID-19. In the 1990s, starting at the age of 34, she was the first woman and youngest person to run…

Swedish VPN service Mullvad announced that it will no longer accept new recurring payments using PayPal or credit card payments. Nothing changes for existing customers for at least 6 months. The company continues to accept one-time payments using various payment options, including PayPal, cash and credit card.

Mullvad VPN, which provides the backbone for Mozilla’s Firefox VPN service, explains, that it decided to remove the ability to create new recurring payments in order to store less data on company servers.

The company has to store payment information for a limited time, as refunds and the ability to restore account access are linked to payment records. One-time payments do not need to be kept indefinitely, but that is not the case for recurring payments. Records of these payments need to be kept for the entirety of the subscription period, and that is a privacy issue.

Researchers at the University of Houston are reporting a first-of-its-kind technology that not only repairs heart muscle cells in mice but also regenerates them following a heart attack, or myocardial infarction as its medically known.

Published in The Journal of Cardiovascular Aging, the groundbreaking finding has the potential to become a powerful clinical strategy for treating heart disease in humans, according to Robert Schwartz, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor of biology and biochemistry at the UH College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

The new technology developed by the team of researchers uses synthetic messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) to deliver mutated transcription factors – proteins that control the conversion of DNA into RNA – to mouse hearts.

“No one has been able to do this to this extent and we think it could become a possible…
