Summer solstice 2024


image

Image/Photo Video: 00:00:10

Summer officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere today 20 June, marking the longest day of the year. The summer solstice, which is when the Sun reaches the most northerly point in the sky, is set to occur tonight at 21:50 BST/22:50 CEST.

During the summer solstice, the Northern Hemisphere will experience the longest period of sunlight in a day or the longest day of the year. This is because of Earth’s position in orbit around the Sun and the way the North Pole is tilted towards the Sun during the solstice.

The Sun’s rays hit the Northern Hemisphere at their most direct angle, resulting in the most extended period of daylight. Despite the long hours of daylight, it may not necessarily be the hottest day of the year.

'Spiritual advisor to Trump' has got to be the easiest gig you could possibly get, because A) Trump cosplays as a religious man only to get the votes of simple christian folk and, B) Like Trump's tiny smooth brain can possibly entertain the notion of actual christian values (not to be mistaken for Republican Jesus values)

Framework #Laptop 13 To See A #RISC-V #Motherboard Option


source: https://www.phoronix.com/news/Framework-Laptop-RISC-V-Board

"This Mainboard is extremely compelling, but we want to be clear that in this generation, it is focused primarily on enabling developers, tinkerers, and hobbyists to start testing and creating on RISC-V. The peripheral set and performance aren’t yet competitive with our Intel and AMD-powered Framework Laptop Mainboards. This board also has soldered memory and uses #MicroSD cards and #eMMC for storage, both of which are limitations of the processor. It is a great way to start playing with RISC-V though inside of a thin, light, refined laptop. The Mainboard will be able to drop into any Framework Laptop 13 chassis or into the Cooler Master Mainboard Case. DeepComputing is also working closely with the teams at Canonical and #RedHat to ensure Linux support is solid through #Ubuntu and #Fedora."
