  The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duan Wu Jie in Chinese, has a rich history. One popular theory suggests it originated from the commemoration of a great patriot poet, Qu Yuan. During the Warring States Period, Qu Yuan served in the court of Emperor Huai. His fight against corruption led to his exile. In despair over the decline of his mother country, Chu State, he drowned himself in the Miluo River. Legend says that people raced their boats to search for his body and dropped rice into the river to prevent fish from feasting on it. Since then, dragon boat races, zongzi (glutinous rice dumplings), and other activities are held annually on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month to honor Qu Yuan’s memory. #dragonboatfestival #端午節 #konijndesignstudio

What are the financial consequences of power outages for industrial facilities?

Image
  Power outages can have severe financial consequences for industrial facilities, some of which include: 1. Production Losses: One of the most significant financial consequences of power outages is production losses. When the power goes out, industrial processes are often disrupted, leading to missed deadlines and lost production. These losses can result in reduced productivity and lost revenue for the facility. Some industrial facilities may find it challenging to make up for lost production once power is restored, resulting in longer-term financial impacts. 2. Increased Costs: Power outages can increase the operating costs of industrial facilities. Facilities may need to purchase temporary generators or other equipment to restore power and maintain operations during the outage. These additional expenses can add up quickly, leading to increased production costs. 3. Equipment Damage: Power outages can also damage sensitive industrial equipment. When the power goes out and comes back on

What are the major differences between RISC-V and traditional RISC CPUs?

Image
For those of you new to RISC-V, it is an open-source Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) that began as a 2010 project of UC Berkeley’s Parallel Computing Laboratory and is now ushering in a new era of chip design and innovation. As the adoption of RISC-V accelerates, it will be used to support a plethora of devices and products, from automotive to 5G and wireless networking, to data centers and beyond. We are seeing new RISC-V architectures that are, for example, designed to deliver new capabilities for pre-silicon development, allowing new ways for SoC (System-on-Chip) architects and system software developers to define new products. This enables organizations to quickly prototype a product, including products for automotive with safety packages. (an excerpt from “Driving the Future of Chip Innovation: Top Three Reasons to Adopt RISC-V” by Desi Banatao) As a RISC architecture, the RISC-V ISA is a  load–store architecture . Its floating-point instructions use  IEEE 754  floating-poi

What's so awesome in PHP 8.2?

Image
PHP 8.2 is a minor release in the PHP 8 series and was released on 2021-12-06. Some of the notable features and improvements in PHP 8.2 include: Nullsafe operator: This operator allows you to chain method calls and access properties without having to check for null values at each step. This can make your code more concise and easier to read. Mixed type hint: The mixed type hint can be used to indicate that a function parameter or return value can be of any type. This can be useful when a function can accept a variety of different types, or when the type is not known at the time the function is written. Improved JIT (Just-In-Time) compilation: PHP 8.2 includes improvements to the JIT compilation feature introduced in PHP 8.0, which can improve the performance of certain types of code. New string functions: PHP 8.2 introduces several new functions for working with strings, including str_contains(), str_starts_with(), and str_ends_with(). Other improvements: PHP 8.2 also includes various
