Electrical energy storage devices have a key role in future world and supercapacitors are an attractive option in this domain. Supercapacitors are much better than today's lithium-ion batteries in some features such as rate of charge and discharge (power density), life and thermal performance but they are much heavier, bulkier and more expensive compared to lithium batteries. Research on supercapacitors is being pursued and it is likely that advanced supercapacitors with enhanced energy density be commercialized in near future.
Advances in energy storage technologies have affected many aspects of today's world. Among many available technologies in energy storage field, lithium-ion batteries could grow rapidly and widespread into many applications because of their sophisticated features. However experts predict that this technology is approaching its limits and more improvements will be difficult or impossible to achieve in coming years.
Population is one of the components of power. Also, suitable distribution of a population is one of the main factors in balancing many areas within the country, especially for countries with a large area of land. The report studies the population policies of the Russian Federation. One of the main pillars of this study is to outline the main policy of increasing population in Russia. These policies have led to an increase in the population growth rate after about two decades of decline.
Reacting to US President Trump?s decertification of the nuclear deal and threats to walk away from it, Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that ?if US rips up the deal, Iran will tear it into shreds.?
President Rouhani met with the President of France Emmanuel Macron and described Europe and France?s role in protecting the post-JCPOA atmosphere important, adding that Tehran is willing to deepen ties with Paris in all field of mutual interest.
While Silicon Valley may stand undefeated as the most prominent name for tech entrepreneurs and startup visionaries, other regions all over the world are worthy competitors. Compass, a San Francisco-based benchmarking software company, has published a 2015 Startup Ecosystem Ranking Report that identifies the top 20 startup "ecosystems" in the world. The report ? which last came out in 2012 ? ranked cities in five categories: performance, funding, talent, market reach, and startup experience. To compile the list, Compass consulted with entrepreneurs from 25 countries to conduct more than 200 interviews and 11,000 startup surveys. Startup ecosystems excluded from this report were China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, which Compass said it plans to include in its index later this year.
On August 7, Renault signed a joint venture agreement with the Industrial Development & Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) and Parto Negin Naseh, a local vehicle importer. The new joint venture, in which Renault will be the majority shareholder, will produce up to 150,000 vehicles and engines a year in Iran, including the latest models of the Symbol and Duster.
"The 11th administration was the administration of environment and the first decision it made was restoring Lake Urmia," said President Rouhani at the "International Conference on Combating Sand and Dust Storms: Challenges and Practical Solutions".
In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful To all the youth in Western countries The bitter incidents triggered by blind terrorism in France motivated me once more to talk to you, young people. In my view, it is regrettable that such events provide the ground for dialogue, but the reality is that if [such] painful issues do not provide the ground for finding a solution and a venue for consultation, the ensuing damage will double. The suffering of every human being in any spot in the world is per se sorrowful for his fellow humans. The scene of a child dying before the eyes of his beloved ones, a mother whose family?s happiness turns into mourning, a husband carrying the lifeless body of his wife to somewhere hastily, or a spectator who is not aware that he is going to see the last sequence of his life in moments, are not scenes which would not stir human sentiments and feelings.
Quantum computers pose a significant security threat to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Now a team of Russian scientists has worked out how to secure blockchains using quantum mechanics.

Nicknamed "black technology", the identification system conducts 24-hour non-stop supervision of the pedestrian crossing and takes shots of pedestrians who ignore red lights. Photos of pedestrian traffic offenders will then appear on an electronic screen.
Chinese scientists are developing the world's first quantum computer, which will be much faster than current supercomputers and is expected to come into fruition in a few years, according to a top scientist.
Chinese scientists from eastern China's Zhejiang Province have created a soft robotic fish with no motor and a fast speed. "The robot is expected to be used underwater to record the temperature and salinity of the sea and detect pollutants," said Li Tiefeng, an associate professor at Zhejiang University.
