Blogs that make the most money - and how to set up your own As research shows fashion bloggers typically earn £1,116 a year, we look at blogging success stories - and explain how you could make it pay Kate Hackworthy's blog has won awards and brought her to the attention of top literary agents    Photo: Martin Pope By  Charlotte Beugge 10:20AM BST 04 Jun 2014 16 Comments Could your hobbies be the start of a new career? Every day, thousands of Britons share their ideas and tips on food, fashion, money-saving hints and other lifestyle interests through their blogs. And some make good money - even undreamed-of riches. Tales of bloggers making huge amounts from their websites are legion. Martin Lewis, the founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, is a prime example of blogging success. He started his newsletter blog in 2003, sent to friends and families, and in 2012 sold the resulting website to Moneysupermarket.com for a cool £87m. But it's

Here is How You Can Reveal Subatomic Particles at Home Posted By:  Jolene Creighton on:  July 26, 2015 In:  Physics   Print   Email Particle physics is difficult. It takes years of study in order to truly grasp it. Moreover, there is still a lot that even the most experienced experts don’t understand (a whole lot, in fact). And the problem is made even worse because of the array of jargon that is sometimes used. But if you can’t fully grasp it, at least you can see it in action. Watch: How to See Subatomic Particles Experiment Instructions: Materials:  Jar & lid, sponge, 91% rubbing alcohol (or greater % purity; not 70%), permanent black marker, flashlight, and dry ice. Step 1: Stuff the sponge in the bottom of the jar so it doesn’t fall down when the jar is turned upside-down. Step 2: Pour a bit of alcohol on the sponge, but not too much that it will drip or fall when turned upside-down. Step 3: Color as much of the inside of the lid black as you can. Th

Physicists Discover New Massless Particle; Could Revolutionize Electronics & Quantum Computing Posted By:  Jolene Creighton on:  July 25, 2015 In:  News ,  Physics   Print   Email Hasan pictured with a scanning tunneling spectromicroscope used to find the Weyl fermion. Danielle Alio/Princeton University. Physics may have just taken a new leap forward, as three independent groups of physicists have found strong evidence for massless particles called “Weyl fermions,” which exist as quasiparticles – collective excitations of electrons. Ultimately, this discovery is over 80 years in the making, dating back to Paul Dirac. In 1928, Dirac came up with an equation that described the spin of fermions (fermions are the building blocks that make up all matter). Within his equation, he discovered that, in relation to particles that have charge and mass, there should be a another particle and antiparticle—what we know as the electron and (its antiparticle) the positron. Yet, th

Scientists Discover that Something Enormous is Hiding Behind Pluto (Literally) Posted By:  Jolene Creighton on:  July 22, 2015 In:  Missions ,  News   Print   Email Image of Pluto taken by New Horizons. Image Credit: NASA Just a week ago, New Horizons made its historic flyby of Pluto and its five small moons (Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra). The  pictures that the spacecraft returned  so far are simply staggering (because the craft is so far away, it will take more than a year to receive all of the data). But already, we see that Charon is round and pockmarked. We see that pluto has a heart splashed across its surface. And there is something else that scientists recently discovered hiding behind Pluto. A tail! Saturn may have a glorious ring system, but Pluto has its own claim to fame: A plasma tail. The news comes thanks to the  SWAP instrument  (Solar Wind Around Pluto). As it passed, the tool picked up readings showing a depression, and as it turns out, this

It requires no experience and all of the necessary installation and post-installation tools are available on tonymacx86.com. UniBeast is a tool that creates a bootable installer out of your downloaded version of OS X. In order to start fresh, you'll need access to a functional computer running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or later. This is a requirement, as you need access to the Mac App Store to download OS X and create the installation drive. To start from scratch, booting the 10.6 Snow Leopard Retail DVD direct
