Keys to understanding why the price of electricity is at highs

The average price of electricity in the wholesale market will reach its highest level since the Filomena storm occurred this Tuesday, exceeding the level of 90 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) and also coinciding with the recent entry into force of the new invoice. Specifically, the electric pool will register for today an average price of 90.95 euros per MWh, a level only surpassed so far this year by the almost 95 euros per MWh registered on January 8, according to OMIE data. This data thus pulverizes what was until now the second most expensive daily price registered in 2021, the 88.95 euros per MWh on May 28. In addition, the market operator expects that this Tuesday will register peaks of 100 euros per MWh between seven and eight in the afternoon, while tomorrow it will reach 105.51 eu...

The Twitch and TikTok generation. This is what the football of the future looks like

Lucas Bosch is 15 years old and has at least eight active profiles on social networks. YouTube, Twitch, Playstation, TikTok, Instagram, Discord, Twitter, Facebook… Bosch lives in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and spends the day studying or doing sports or dividing himself, in his spare time, between all his digital identities. On YouTube, for example, see the summary of the zero tie between FC Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid last weekend.

Scientists Translated Spiderwebs Into Music, And It's Beyond Stunning

Spiders rely quite significantly on touch to sense the world around them. Their bodies and legs are covered in tiny hairs and slits that can distinguish between different kinds of vibrations.  Prey blundering into a web makes a very different vibrational clamor from another spider coming a-wooing, or the stirring of a breeze, for example. Each strand of a web produces a different tone.A few years ago, scientists translated the three-dimensional structure of a spider's web into music, working with artist Tomás Saraceno to create an interactive musical instrument, titled Spider's Canvas. Now the team has refined and built on that previous work, and added an interactive virtual reality component to allow people to enter and interact with the web.This research, the team says, will not only he...
