South African Drone Startup - Passerine - to Use Bird-Inspired Legs to Jump Into the Air https://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/drones/delivery-drones-use-birdinspired-legs-to-jump-into-the-air?fbclid=IwAR20yQ5j_8ej8_8HRTZX_Y_T8UGKbJA0k4NHgY-RLkn0Cr9SlqUV6Dn5Syk

Spectrum reports:South African startup called Passerine has an idea, which is to do what birds do: Use wings to fly efficiently, while relying on legs and feet for takeoff and landing.This is a rendering of Passerine’s drone, called Sparrow. The first thing to notice is of course those legs, which we’ll certainly get into. But the fixed-wing design of the airframe might be a better place to start. Those over-wing engines create what’s called a blown wing, where the engine exhaust passes over the top of the wing and over a portion of the wing flaps. The forced high-speed air passing over the wings and flaps generates a substantial amount of lift (two or three times the lift of a conventional wing), and since the air is coming directly from the engines, you get that lift even if the aircraft isn’t moving very much. This is in contrast to most conventional wings and flaps, the performance of which depends on the aircraft’s forward velocity. The upshot is that aircraft with blown wings or blown flaps can takeoff and land over a much shorter distance, and can fly much more slowly before they stall.More here

Charter Cities: Crypto's Killer App? by @mwiyas

  • 0

Mwiya Musokotwane writes: Crypto economics – A vision Five and a half years ago my co-founder and I got started planning a new city development in Zambia. After a year and a half of planning, we started marketing the new town development and got busy doing the actual work of development. Four years in, we’ve done quite a lot, but there’s still a lot for us to execute before the town starts to actually look and feel like a town. Part of what makes what we do interesting is that it’s an exercise in the sort of planning typically done by municipalities and central governments, we have to think about schools, utilities, home affordability, access to healthcare, sanitation, jobs etc. Starting from the ground-up, with resources we’ve built through aggressive pre-sales, and conservative financial planning—we typically have to approach everything from the basis of first principles. Further, given that the city is already self-funded, and with no external investors; we treat our development company like a lean start-up. The first priority is to get the minimum viable product ready, iterate and improve from there. It’s easy to be idealistic when the purse is unlimited, the opposite is true when you have to think of the best and highest use of every dollar spent...[more]

Kian Smith Gold Refinery #Nigeria founded by Nere Teriba

  • 0

The Nerve profiles the founder of Kian Smith Gold Refinery - Nere Teriba: From breaking into one of the most difficult industries in Nigeria to becoming the owner of the country’s first ever gold refinery, Nere Teriba has shown she is not your average business person. She started with trading in minerals, specifically Lead, and has continued to move up in the $2 trillion mining value chain. Although she says none of her achievements have come without challenges, she always knew there is no cloud without a silver lining… maybe Gold. Teriba’s gold refinery, scheduled to begin operations by the end of the first half of 2019 is expected to produce 3 tonnes of gold and 1 tonne of silver per month, both at 99.99 percent purity. Through her company Kian Smith Trade &Co., Nere Teriba intends to help develop Africa’s mining industry, starting from Nigeria and West Africa. She has taken it upon herself to help Nigeria solve its challenge of not getting royalties from artisanal and small scale miners (ASMs), who produce most of the minerals in circulation in the West African country. She is also helping the miners get more from mining, formalize their operations and adopt sustainable mining practices. When she succeeds, she would have successfully created hundreds of thousands of jobs and made millions of revenue for the government. Nere Teriba is 36.
