University of Sydney Researchers Design New Long-Range Wi-Fi System for Underground Mines

Telecommunication researchers at the University of Sydney have designed an industrial long-range Wi-Fi system that maintains high data rates while transmitting signals to places that are difficult to reach. This is unlike existing systems, which have high-latency, short-communication ranges of less than 100 meters and are primarily designed for indoor applications. These features make them unsuitable for critical applications. The system is being developed for crucial applications in underground mines, which require control of sensitive equipment and remote-worker monitoring, with signals that extend a few kilometers underground. The developers assert that the system could also be utilized in university campuses,…

Why Energy Storage Systems Are Urgently Needed

As the adoption of clean energy grows, the need for new storage technologies that can do away with the issues that plague renewable energy, such as seasonal imbalances and short-term variability, also grows. Long-term energy storage technologies are the solution to these issues because they can store electricity for a significant amount of time. However, given that the full commercialization of these technologies may be achieved in the long term, the need for a current solution remains. This is where battery energy storage comes in, as the rechargeable technology can store electricity for a couple of hours, which makes a…

The council believes that the investment appeal for gold will strengthen amid the shift to less liquid and riskier assets, given its usefulness as a highly liquid diversifier, which can decrease portfolio volatility. Anecdotal evidence from international conferences and investors, as well…

Concerns Over Omicron Variant, Inflation Has Increased Gold’s Safe-Haven Appeal

Last week, the price of gold rose above the $1,800 level as rising inflation drove investors to safe-haven assets and worries over the new coronavirus variant increased. U.S. gold futures rose by .4% to reach $1,804 while spot gold rose by .2% to sell at about $1,802 per ounce. Equities also dropped, recoiling from a hawkish turn by international central banks focused on the economic risk that may be brought on by the increasing number of coronavirus cases and taming increasing price pressures. The omicron variant was identified in November and has added a new level of uncertainty for central…
