The Philippines can't seem to get rid of what is now a deadly and annoying Tropical Depression Parma, but forecasters are now providing hope.
The Aqua satellite captured both Extra-Tropical Storm Melor (top of image) over northwestern Japan, and Tropical Depression Parma (bottom of image) still over the Philippines on Oct. 8 at 0353 UTC (Oct. 7, 11:53 p.m. ET). The infrared image from Aqua\\\'s AIRS instrument showed some high, cold, thunderstorm cloud tops (purple) as cold as -63F still in Parma, but warmer and less powerful thunderstorms in Melor.

Parma may have weakened into a tropical depression, but its still causing a lot of trouble for the residents of the Philippines today. Parma is again moving over Luzon and is expected to finally reach the South China Sea on Friday.Warnings are still up for many areas of the Philippines again today. Public storm warning signal One is in force in Batanes Group of Islands, Cagayan, Babuyan Islands, Calayan Islands, Isabela, Ilocos Norte & Sur, Apayao, Abra, Kalinga, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Benguet, La Union, Pangasinan, Nueva Viscaya, Quirino, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Pampanga, Zambales, Bataan and Bulacan.
The Aqua satellite captured both Extra-Tropical Storm Melor over northwestern Japan, and Tropical Depression Parma still over the Philippines on October 8 at 0353 UTC (Oct. 7, 11:53 p.m. ET). The infrared image from Aqua's AIRS instrument showed some high, cold, thunderstorm cloud tops as cold as -63F still in Parma, but warmer and less powerful thunderstorms in Melor. Those higher, colder thunderstorms in Parma are areas where moderate to heavy rainfall is occurring.
Parma is expected to keep together until it finally moves over the South China Sea and may re-intensify once over open water.
In terms of the Philippines, Parma looks like the short-term end of this tragic, wet period for residents there. Even though a new tropical depression has formed north of Guam, it is forecast to head north then northeast and away from the Philippines.

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...
