Tropical Depression Peipah has been very stubborn and has moved over the southern and central Philippines bringing clouds, showers and gusty winds.
NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an image that showed Peipah's clouds covering the Visayas and Mindanao regions of the country.
The VIIRS instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible look at the remnant clouds associated with former Tropical Depression Peipah on April 14 at 4:24 UTC/12:24 a.m. EDT.
The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument collects visible and infrared imagery and global observations of land, atmosphere, cryosphere and oceans.
Peipah is a broad area of low pressure and its remnant clouds covered the central region of the Philippines called the Visayas region, and Mindanao, the southern region. Microwave satellite imagery confirmed that the low-level part of the storm is still poorly defined and convection (rising air that builds thunderstorms that make up a tropical cyclone) has not improved.
On April 14 at 0900 UTC/5 a.m. EDT, Peipah's remnants were centered near 9.7 north latitude and 130.8 east longitude, about 360 nautical miles/414 miles/666.7 km northwest of Zamboanga, Philippines. Maximum sustained winds were estimated as high as 20 knots/23.0 mph/37.2 kph.
According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Peipah's remnants have a medium chance for regenerating in the next couple of days as it moves slowly in a westerly direction.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
