Graphene & the Nobel Prize in Physics 2010

The 2010 Nobel prize in physics was awarded to the founders of one atom thick carbon lattice. Graphene is honeycomb crystal structure made from Carbon atoms. While normally Carbon tends to make four bonds here the one atom thick carbon structure makes only 3 atomic bonds. This results a good conductivity on the 2 dimensional plane. While a one plane of this structure has a thickness of 0.335nm and it results to have 3 million sheets of these structure to make 1mm thickness.
 The Nobel price winning founders of this Graphene are two times Nobel price winner Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov. Andre has won Nobel price before for elevating a frog on the space by manipulating the magnetic fields. And he has published a paper related to it with having his hamster as his co-author.

IEEE citation style for Microsoft Office Word 2007

The office 2007 has very nice way of helping you with adding references to the document you make. But unfortunately that does not come with IEEE style formatting.

So if you are seeking for a IEEE type formatting system what you have to do is download the "IEEEbyBradley.XSL" created by Bradley Farnsworth, and place the XSL file inside C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Bibliography\Style\ folder.

If you really want to know and learn how to create a referencing style of word 2007 you can try Bibliography & Citations 1011.

Good luck.

Large Projector Displays

The Urban Intraction project (UBI-Oulu) has deployed two large projector display screens in the Oulu city. Other than the newest projector screens they have deployed 57 inch touch screen displays in around the oulu.

Those interactive displays were deployed very first at the time i was working at the MediaTeam, Oulu. The newest technology exposure is one of the best things i had in my last two years stay in Oulu.
