Neuralink Technology

Neuralink Corporation is a neurotechnology company developing invasive implantable brain-machine interfaces and was founded by Elon Musk and others. The company’s headquarters is in the Pioneer Building in San Francisco sharing offices with OpenAI. Neuralink was launched in 2016 and was first publicly reported in March 2017.

The Link is the first neural implant that will let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go.

Micron-scale threads are inserted into areas of the brain that control movement. Each thread contains many electrodes and connects them to an implant, the Link.

Neurosurgery – The threads on the Link are so fine and flexible that they can’t be inserted by the human hand. Instead, we are building a robotic system that the neurosurgeon can use to reliably and efficiently insert these threads exactly where they need to be.

Neuralink is a device that will first be used to help paraplegics with simple tasks such as using an iPhone and making mouse clicks on a computer — by making no physical movement. … So far, Neuralink prototypes have been tested on rodents and animals (pigs) and apparently even a monkey, according to Musk.

According to the Neuralink site, the question asked is why do electrodes need to be connected directly to the brain? Neural activity can be monitored from outside the head using non-invasive techniques such as EEG. With these techniques, each channel records the summed activity of millions of neurons, which means the details are blurred away. An example of this is experiencing a sports event through a microphone placed outside the stadium. From the roars or groans of the crowd, you can tell when something good or bad happens to the home team, but you’ll have a hard time distinguishing whether they scored or made a great defensive play. And you certainly wouldn’t be able to hear what individual people were saying about the game. The same is true for recording from the brain: recordings made at a distance provide some useful, high-level information, but to access fine-scale information, you need to be close to the source. Here, that means recording action potentials, or voltage “spikes,” from individual neurons. Currently, that can only be done by placing electrodes inside the brain.

Note From the Editor

I am particularly interested in neuroscience technology as I am researching and studying neuroplasticity with the view to cure my brain and my intrusive negative thoughts. I am watching Neuralink evolve to see how it may in the future use no invasive technology to combat issues of depression and anxiety and other mental health illnesses.

I like the idea of being able to download our memories and upload them somewhere else. This would be beneficial for people with severe brain damage. However, uploading this data one would have to use massive amounts of storage space as we as humans have according to Dr. Leaf, “the average person has over 30,000 thoughts a day.” Many of these are a result of uncontrolled thinking. Often grief takes over so much that it turns into depression and anxiety and other representations of ill mental and physical health.

Metaverse News

On Thursday, 28/10/21, or if you are in the USA 10/28/21 Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook announced he will officially became the CEO and chairman of Meta, the new parent company name for Facebook.

The rebrand is to make the brand futuristic it is about solidifying the social media giant as being about the metaverse, which Zuckerberg sees as the future of the internet. Zuckerberg is staying in control of everything.

The definition of ‘Metaverse’ has a rather broad meaning: it doesn’t necessarily exist, it is speculative with the hopes that developers and coders will in the future turn this concept into a reality. Metaverse is a vision for the future iteration of the Internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces linked into a perceived virtual universe. The metaverse in a broader sense may not only refer to virtual worlds but the Internet as a whole, including the entire spectrum of augmented reality.

We are spiritual beings in physical bodies, imagine if technology could make us immortal. Imagine teleporting to the other side of the world using augmented reality and holograms. Imagine educating surgeons to perform operations or hold conferences in virtual reality boardrooms. Imagine what this would do for our planet. This concept would help the environment cut down on emissions and help people with disabilities to venture into the yonder where previously it was not possible.

Matthew Ball, author of the extensive Metaverse Primer wrote:

“The Metaverse is an expansive network of persistent, real-time rendered 3D worlds and simulations that support continuity of identity, objects, history, payments, and entitlements, and can be experienced synchronously by an effectively unlimited number of users, each with an individual sense of presence.”

PROJECT CAMBRIA HEADSET

“Project Cambria” codenamed, is a virtual reality device and will probably be quite an expensive one, it is the headset for the future. Mark Zuckerberg believes that a billion people will be connected to the metaverse within the next decade. The headset won’t be a replacement for the Oculus Quest.

Metaverse “improved social presence” isn’t actually technology as such it is a futuristic concept that is being evolved by developers and coders with the vision technologies that will allow people to live in a virtual world. “Facebook”, eg, the new brand name “Meta” uses this phrase to describe the value of interactions on Instagram and Facebook the platform.

Last week the company announced plans to hire 10,000 people across the EU to help bring this concept to fruition.

The metaverse is a concept coined in the 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash to describe a kind of three-dimensional virtual reality version of the internet where people are present as avatars and move through a digital representation of a physical world.

However, holograms are nothing new, in fact, a city in Saudia Arabia “NEOM” is dubbed as the futuristic city. Neom a cross-border city in the Tabuk Province of northwestern Saudi Arabia is incorporating smart city technologies and also function as a tourist destination created the vision of a Prince’s $500 Billion Desert Dream: Flying Cars, Robot Dinosaurs, and a Giant Artificial Moon. The site is located in the north of the Red Sea, east of Egypt across the Strait of Tiran, and south of Israel and Jordan.

Recovered Stolen Electrician Domain Name.

Recovered Stolen Electrician Domain Name.

With the support of UK Website Designers, City of London Police, and Nominet, Jeff Smith the owner of “First Phase Electrical Wales” has today successfully recovered the domain name www.firstphaseelectricalwales.co.uk

I had written about this case on my other Domain Brokering site many months ago and the problems arising from using offshore website designers, that basically cybersquatting the domain name which eventually getting it suspended by the City of London Police and Nominet.

However, it was an enormous task to delete all the breadcrumbs and carbon footprint this domain had incurred over the years that showed the domain in a bad light. The backlinks have been updated although we were not able to successfully catch them all, hopefully now business will pick up seeing we have now acquired the domain name and is in safe hands.

You can read the whole story here:

Using Offshore Website Designers Part 1

Using Offshore Website Designers Part 2

Using Offshore Website Designers Part 3

Jeff is now really pleased that the domain name has been successfully registered and is pointing to his business.

Jeff also asked us to put a review on his website which can be located towards the bottom of his website www.firstphaseelectricalwales.co.uk

UK Website Designers built two sites for Jeff both exact match searchable keywords domain names www.electricianswales.co.uk and www.pattestingwales.co.uk whilst his original branded domain had been compromised and was waiting to be recovered. It took over a year to finally get the domain back to its rightful owner.

Contracts.

The problem with website designers is unless a client has a contract stating the domain names that have been registered on the client’s behalf which will be released on termination of the agreement the business owner could get unstuck getting their domain names back as in the case of Jeff and his previous website designers.

Jeff is fortunate to have such a contract with “UK Website Designers” as we do not do business without signed agreements.

We have learned by our mistakes, the hard way over the years that not having contracts can become messy and as with one passport photographer in particular located in Cardiff who got “UK Website Designers” to build him 3 websites and he then started having financial problems paying, yet he had full control of the hosting and domain names.

Without a signed agreement it was difficult to prove what he had agreed to and that is when we decided that we would never get unstuck like that again.

All businesses should have contracts for the services they offer and anyone that just wants a gentlemen’s handshake should be avoided. A person who refuses to sign a contract obviously has ulterior motives.

Supporting Your Local Business.

Electrician In Wales.

If you are in South Wales UK and are reading this please support your local business and share this article with your connections as Jeff has lost a lot of business because of these people in India.

If you have any electrical work that needs doing-especially coming up to the holiday season with Halloween and Christmas lights and rewiring hots spots for kitchen Appliances or Landlord Property Safety checks and Commercial Properties Jeff is the man to call.

S.A. Brain Brewery.

Brains is the brand name of SA Brain & Co, a family-owned brewing and hospitality company based in Cardiff.

Over the last few years, the future of the famous Welsh brand has come into question, with the suggestion that the brewing operation of 150 different beers will move outside of Wales.

SA Brain exchanged contracts with Marston’s last year to operate 145 of its pubs in Wales after ongoing coronavirus restrictions placed Brains under significant financial pressure. The group has around 200 pubs in total across Wales and the southwest.

Last month concerns were raised, when Marston’s asked some pub Brains’ pub landlords to become self-employed.

A spokesman for the property advisory firm that is trying to sell the pubs on behalf of the brewery is said to have quoted ”This is a rare opportunity to acquire a large, high-quality package of public houses located in strong trading positions across Wales. They benefit from a secure income streamlet to an excellent covenant. We anticipate significant levels of demand as packages of this quality rarely come to the market.”

It comes as no surprise in light of the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic that the hospitality industry was hit the hardest and that a lot of businesses went bust, so it only makes sense that a brewery is selling off some of its assets.

People will still want to go to their favourite pubs for food and drink come rain or shine and have great nights out, hence this little gem should be snapped up pretty quickly.

This is a great opportunity for an offshore investor to take over some of the greatest pubs in South Wales.

Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp, Messenger, Oculus VR, Outage.

Facebook is down, along with Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Oculus VR.

Posted 4th October 2021.

Social media giant Facebook who also owns WhatsApp and Instagram has all been hit by an outage lasting more than an hour this afternoon.

All three services are owned by Facebook and could not be accessed over the web or smartphone apps.

Downdetector, which tracks outages, logged nearly 80,000 reports for WhatsApp and more than 50,000 for Facebook earlier today.

Data from the website suggests the outage is affecting user accounts across the globe.

Some people also reported problems using Facebook’s virtual reality headset platform, Oculus.

Facebook commented by saying: “We are aware some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.”

No official reason for the problem was given.

Online IT experts speculated it may involve an error with DNS records, or the domain name system, for Facebook sites and apps.

DNS is a string of commands that directs the domain name to an internet protocol (IP address) often compared to an address book or phone book for the internet, pointing web browsers to the computer server system which hosts the website they are looking for.

Previous issues with DNS led to widespread outages of several major sites earlier this year.

In one of those instances, it emerged that the blackout was caused by a single customer of a widely-used service who changed their settings, triggering a software bug affecting a huge number of websites.

It is unusual for such problems to occur affecting a single tech giant such as Facebook, or for the issue to remain unfixed for a long length of time.

Unfortunately for Facebook several other tech companies, including LinkedIn, Reddit, and Twitter, have jumped on the bandwagon to make fun at the social media giant’s expense.

This is very frustrating for the business owners that only have Facebook pages and Facebook groups to trade from as many feel having a website to be too costly hence rely on the cheaper option of a social media page.

This now should be a lesson learned for all businesses not to keep all their eggs in one basket and always have a backup plan should something like this happen again. For my clients, I always build a website, blog, and social media page, essentially creating an SEO link wheel.

Facebook Error Message.

I only use Facebook for business to market other people’s businesses and as it happens I was about to create a Facebook page for a client to compliment his website only to find an error message. I automatically thought I had a problem with the internet only to go on Linkedin to read all the tongue-in-cheek comments and that is when I clocked on what had happened.

Facebook Andy Stone Tweet.

Andy Stone, from Facebook’s communications department, tweeted: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
