    1. An der mexikanischen Westküste entsteht mit "Costa Azul" für 2 Milliarden Dollar das erste Terminal für den Export von texanischem Gas nach Asien. Es signalisiert eine weitreichende und für die Dekarbonisierung möglicherweise katastrophale Verschiebung im Gasgeschäft. Die USA könnten zunehmend auch zum Lieferanten für Asien werden. Ob weitere Terminals errichtet werden, hängt von der Klimapolitik der US-Regierung ab, die gerade ein Moratorium für LNG-Terminals ausgerufen hat. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/13/climate/mexico-natural-gas-biden.html

    1. Die obersten 2000 m der Ozeane haben 2023 15 Zettajoule Wärme mehr absorbiert als 2022. Die Erwärmung dieser Schichten verringert den Austausch mit den kälteren unteren Schichten und belastet die marinen Ökosysteme dadurch zusätzlich. Bisher sind keine Zeichen für eine Beschleunigung der Zunahme des Wärmehinhalts im Verhältnis zu den Vorjahren zu erkennen. Die Oberflächentemperatur der Ozeane lag im ersten Halbjahr 0,1°, im zweiten Halbjahr aber für die Wissenschaft überraschende 0,3 Grad über der des Jahres 2022. Schwere Zyklone, darunter der längste bisher beobachtete überhaupt, trafen vor allem besonders vulnerable Gebiete.

    1. If you have a Thunderbolt Display, this is what you want.

      Another (of many) good confirmation.

    2. Does not work with 27-inch LED Mini-DisplayPort Apple Cinema Display.

      OK. Mini-display doesn't work. As indicated on the product's box with a glaring red X.

    3. I have 2 27 inch Apple Cinema displays, both identical in everything except for the technology in their display connections. One is Thunderbolt 2 and the other is Mini Display port, both share the same exact connection but use different tech for signal throughput.

      Nice to know: Thunderbolt 2 vs. Mini Display port.

    4. TLDR; you have to set your video camera and microphone to your laptop sources to get good quality when in a video conference.

      Too bad. I was excited to learn it would for my new M3 laptop. But I need the display's camera to work for Zoom conferences.

    5. when using Teams for video conferencing my video signal from the camera in the display gets severely crushed/pixelated by the dongle. It’s like it only has enough throughput to send the image to the monitor, not back to the computer from the camera. I just use the laptop camera. Otherwise works great.

      Wow. Good to know. Probably another overpriced made-in-China product making a huge profit in the Apple ecosystem.

      "Low throughput"?

    6. thunderbolt apple cinema 27” thunderbolt 2 monitor (the one with the lightning icon on the video plug, not the mini dvi box looking thing)

      Wonderful! This is also my monitor.

    1. UPTab USB C to Mini DisplayPort Adapter (4K@60Hz) USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 to MDP Adapter with Power Port for New M2 MacBook Pro/Air, iPad Pro, Mac Mini M1/M2, iMac and More (Silver)

      Recommended by an Amazon user. It works for "mini displayPort" and M1/M2/M3 laptop.

    1. Mini DisplayPort (MiniDP or mDP)

      cf. Mini DVI (different, but has the same icon: a box with a horizontal line)

    1. Die Planungen neuer Kohlekraftwerke und die Nutzung von Kohleenergie haben im vergangenen Jahr neue Höchststände erreicht. Vor allem China plant viele neue Kraftwerke. Der Bericht Boom and Burst Coal des Global Energy Monitor stellt außerdem fest, dass Kohlekraftwerke weltweit viereinhalb Mal schneller abgeschaltet werden müssten, um das Ziel des Verzichts auf Kohleenergie bis 2040 zu erreichen.

    1. During the monitoring phase, learners can ask, How am I doing? Am I on the right track? How should I proceed? What information is important to remember? Should I move in a different direction? Should I adjust the pace because of the difficulty? What can I do if I do not understand?

    1. I stopped talking to my neighbors and I would spit on the floor every time I would see them to express my way of showing that they were no longer welcomed in the United States.

      Muslims also face another form of discrimination—the assumption that they're not "real" Americans, says Nadal

    1. Worldwide gaming industry is worth billions and with such high figures at stake gamers never compromise on the hardware used for their professional gaming matches. The world is also recognizing gaming as a full-time employment and earning opportunity rather than the just a free time hobby. Now let’s come to facts. Things might look simple but it’s easier said than done. Professional gamers invest a lot on their hardware and equipment to reach at the top. If you are one of those who is inspired to be follow their steps or stepping into this industry, then this is a must-read article for you. In this article we will be covering How to Choose the right Gaming Monitor for your PC, undoubtedly the most important investment a gamer needs to make. Selecting a Gaming Monitor– Physical Design, Shape & Size: While finalizing the design first take into account the space available at your desk for the same. You would never want a misfit, specially when it comes to a gaming monitor. Idle size would be 24”. After the size comes the shape of the design and shape. Flat screen monitors are slowly giving way to curved screen ones with better view and immersive experience. Remember your size shape and design of your monitor would have a great impact on your gaming experience. Huntkey a leading online electrical and electronics store based in USA has a collection of gaming monitors for all level of gamers depending upon the requirement, budget, size etc. Selecting a Gaming Monitor- Specifications: 3 specifications should always be taken care of while buying any sort of visual monitor for an immersive experience, native resolutions, response rate & viewing angle. Higher resolutions ensure more information is packed into your monitor. Here the recommended resolutions size is of 1920X1080. A gamer always requires detailed information for successfully completing the missions. This where higher pixels or resolution play a key role. Let’s take an example for a real war mission. You blink and you die. The same also goes for a gamer involved in this genre of gaming where even a delay of certain milliseconds can end the entire mission for you. Professional gamers probably would end up losing millions of dollars where the response rate of the monitor is not optimal. Even though there is no well-defined response rate but anything that ensures you take the headshot every time, probably a response rate between 2-5 milliseconds would be helpful. This feature is most importantly relevant for television viewing or for motion graphics/movie viewing. Viewing angle is the angle from which if viewed, the quality of graphics appearing in te video doesn’t degrade. In most cases unless the display is curved or of high specs, moving away from the center of the display downgrades the viewing experience. For online purchase of gaming monitors visit HuntKey.com.
