The German writer Norman Ohler lives on the top floor of a 19th-century apartment building on

The German writer Norman Ohler lives on the top floor of a 19th-century apartment building on the south bank of the river Spree in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Visiting him there is a vertiginous experience. For one thing, he works – and likes to entertain visitors – in what he calls his “writing tower”, a flimsy-seeming, glass-walled turret perched right on the very edge of the roof. (Look down, if you dare, and you will see his little boat moored far below.) For another, there is the fact that from this vantage point it is possible to discern two Berlins, one thrusting and breezy, the other spectral and grey. To our left, busy with traffic, is the Oberbaum Bridge, where there was once a cold war checkpoint, and beyond it the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall, its doleful length rudely interrupted by the block of luxury flats that went up in 2013. As for the large building immediately opposite, these days it’s the home of Universal Music. Not so very long ago, however, it was the GDR’s egg storage facility. Does all this press on Ohler as he sits at his desk, the light bouncing off the screen of his laptop? Is it ghostly sometimes? “Yes, it is strange,” he says, smiling at my ...

Welcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15

Welcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly.This week’s blog post is all about trying to make sense of the conversion between American Wire Gauge (AWG) and our beloved metric system. We still live in an engineering environment where the use of AWG standard cables are prevalent mainly due to the fact that just like the US $, the American UL (United Laboratories) system is dominant world wide and generally more accepted globally than the British standards. (UL is a bit like our BS standard but is specifically governed and registered in the US. So, for example, say you are a manufacturer of wire: you send it off to UL, they test it, and approve it, and provide a E-Number, which means the manufacturer holds the rights to that standard a bit like intellectual property.) In the cable assembly business you learn your conversion tables off by heart much like your ABC, and times tables. Whether or not you like the idea of working in the Imperial System it is with us to stay, so to make things easy I have listed a simple conversion guide. AWG is...

For the last dozen years, when Caps fans refers to “The Goal,” everyone knows it points

For the last dozen years, when Caps fans refers to “The Goal,” everyone knows it points to Alex Ovechkin’s improbably incredible goal in Phoenix against the Coyotes back in January of 2006.  From Wednesday night going forward, the same can be said of Caps goalie Braden Holtby and “The Save.”  With the Caps nursing a 3-2 lead late in the critical Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Golden Knights in Vegas, an innocent looking dump-in suddenly morphed into a crucial moment in the contest. Vegas defenseman Shea Theodore lofted the puck into the corner of the Washington zone, where it took an odd carom and bounded sharply to the right, through the crease in front of Holtby, and directly to the stick blade of Vegas center Cody Eakin. Eakin quickly fed it to Alex Tuch, who was at the top of the paint on the left side. As the puck reached Tuch and the Vegas forward shot at the yawning Washington net, Holtby reacted by sprawling out desperately with his right arm, thrusting the paddle portion of his stick across to cover as much area as possible. With a combination of reflex and athleticism, Holtby was able to get the fullest part of the paddle on t...

A local council was established on Sunday in Syria’s northern town of Tal Abyad, which Turkey

A local council was established on Sunday in Syria’s northern town of Tal Abyad, which Turkey recently cleared of YPG/PKK terrorists with its Operation Peace Spring. Abdurrahman Mustafa, who was also elected head of Syria’s interim government, said the 23-member council represents all ethnic and religious groups in the area. “Western countries would always say there was stability east of the Euphrates [River], which was dominated by terrorists. But we knew that their “stability” was coming from the power of guns,” he added. “We will rebuild the city democratically, and show this to the regime and the whole world.” The YPG/PKK terror group carried out an attack on Sunday in northwestern Syria, despite a Turkey-Russia deal for their withdrawal from the region. Terrorists in the Tal Rifat region fired five artillery shells into areas controlled by the Syrian National Army near Azaz, injuring a civilian. One Turkish soldier died and five others were wounded by YPG/PKK terrorist attacks in northern Syria, officials said on Sunday. Turkish Defence Ministry said that the military was conducting reconnaissance work and responded in kind t...

WWE’s NXT UK stars catch Vince McMahon’s eye at TakeOver Cardiff

The stars of WWE’s UK brand NXT UK were eager to hog the spotlight during a busy Saturday night in the world of pro wrestling. And if the reaction from the sold-out MotorPoint Arena was anything to go by, NXT UK TakeOver : Cardiff in Wales did not disappoint. Pre-show, Rhea Ripley bested Piper Niven, and Kassius Ohno defeated Sid Scala, before the event went live on WWE Network. The first match pit the Scottish Supernova, Noam Dar, against the Kiwi Buzz Saw Travis Banks. Earlier in the day, the cocksure Dar had told Mirror Sport that Cardiff should be renamed “Dardiff”. In a solid opener, he backed up his words by almost taking Banks head off with one shin kick and following up with the Nova Roller to score the winning pinfall. Next up, Ilja Dragunov made an impromptu appearance and swiftly took WWE Raw superstar Cesaro – who had flown across from America – up on his open challenge. Cesaro entered the ring to a hugely positive crowd reaction and he and the young challenger traded some seriously stiff chops and forearms, before the Swiss Superman hurled his opponent out of the ring. The crowd counted to 40 seconds as Dragunov suffered the dizzying ef...

New Google Nest Wifi Brings Mesh Nodes That Double As Smart Speakers

The original Google Wifi promised reliable and fast internet across your entire home using a series of identical mesh nodes positioned around your house. It’s the same approach that’s used for the company’s new and renamed Nest Wifi. But now, a central router is employed with satellite nodes that double as smart speakers. Instead of using a single access point that looks like an alien spaceship covered in antennas to broadcast wireless internet throughout your entire home, mesh networks share the load across multiple access points which reduces wifi congestion and increases speed and reliability. It also eliminates the need for those unsightly external antennas, so mesh wifi hardware can be disguised as decorative objects hidden around your house. With its new Nest Wifi, Google has made the design of its nodes even subtler than the previous generation hardware, with generously rounded edges, and soft rings of light that indicate the hardware’s status. They almost look like something you’d find in a Yankee Candle store, but sadly won’t smell like pumpkin spice. The Nest Wifi Router is easy to distinguish from the Nest Wifi Points—the latter features a perforated design around th...

Brushed DC Motor Driver with speed control and stall detection: Reference Design

This reference design demonstrates a brushed DC (BDC) motor driver solution for a vacuum robot main wheel and main brush, which can detect a motor stall without any additional sensors. This design allows for a low component count and small form factor while providing flexibility for controlling BDC motors. The design incorporates enhanced protections like overcurrent, overvoltage, undervoltage, and thermal shutdown. A robotic vacuum cleaner, often called a robovac or roboVac, is an autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner which has intelligent programming and a limited vacuum floor cleaning system. An advantage to using a Robotic Vacuum Cleaner (robovac) is that they vacuum automatically. Brushed DC motors are the popular choice because of the small body size. This reference design is based on the TI DRV887x family of H-bridge drivers. The control MCU is TI’s MSP430FR2111 which integrates the comparator and a 10-bit ADC. The DRV887x family of devices are flexible motor drivers for a wide variety of end applications. The devices integrate an N-channel H-bridge, charge pump regulator, current sensing and regulation, current proportional output, and protection circuitry. The charge pump i...
