first_imgGame of Thrones season 8 episode 4Game of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 “The Last War” will feature Daenerys Targaryen finally coming on terms that Ser Jorah Mormont is no longer with her and she has to march King’s Landing with her remaining allies. Jon Snow will probably accompany her but as per a recent fan theory, she will be betrayed by Tyrion Lannister.Game of Thrones season 8 showed reunions of several major characters. On one hand, we saw Arya Stark reuniting with Jon Snow, and then we saw that emotional reunion between Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy. But there was a moment in episode 2 “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” where we saw Tyrion Lannister approaching Bran Stark. Their conversation by the fireside was not shown but it looked like the duo talked about several instances for example how Bran became Three-eyed-raven and how Jon is actually Aegon Targaryen.”Bran told Tyrion who Jon actually is and it will be the driving force behind him switching sides. A lot of us couldn’t see Jon releasing the information on his own to get the throne. What if Tyrion tells the world that Jon is the true heir because he doubts Daenerys’ intentions or honor! This would force Jon into a situation of conflict,” writes the fan on Reddit.Since Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, he is the true heir to the Iron Throne. Even Daenerys Targaryen holds no right to the throne till Jon is alive. At the same time, Tyrion knows very well what is going on between Jon and Daenerys and back in season 7, we learned that Tyrion was heartbroken after seeing Jon Snow knocking at Daenerys Targaryen’s door in the middle of the night.

Her ordering her own Hand to stay in Winterfell crypts during the battle of Winterfell could suggest that she has lost all faith in him and would try to push him further away in the remaining two episodes.If Daenerys will ask Tyrion to stop serving her as her Hand, he would simply reveal to everyone that she holds no right to the throne as it is Jon Snow who is the destined King of all the Seven Kingdoms. If Tyrion does that then it will come as a blow to Khaleesi who has lost everyone she has ever loved.last_img read more

first_imgObservers generally say that eventually all cars will use some form of electric engine and that means recharging. The more charging opportunity, the more confident customers will be about EV adoptions. While Qualcomm is throwing its competitive hat into the ring with its new charging system, the company does not deny that this is no magic bullet if there is no adequate transport system to accommodate wide deployment. Wireless recharging points embedded in roads to give electric vehicles complete autonomy would be the next phase, allowing drivers to drive and charge at the same time. Qualcomm says pads buried in the motorway can allow EVs to travel longer distances, have smaller batteries, and weigh less. According to Tech-On, the frequency range used for power transmission is 20k-140kHz. The power to be transmitted is 3kW for single phase, 7kW for three phases and 18kW or higher in the case of rapid charging. A home could be set up with the single phase 3kW IPT for charging a car overnight.Many product debuts at CES are regularly criticized by viewers as disappearing into vapor once the show draws to a close, but Qualcomm’s system is scheduled for a more aggressive debut, in the form of a field test in 50 EVs over a two-year trial period.Wireless recharging points will be rolled out across London this year to put the charging system to the test. The testing is supported by Transport for London and Mayor Boris Johnson. The Mayor has showed strong support in promoting EVs. In 2009 he pledged that every Londoner will be no more than one mile from an electric car charge point by 2015.

Once the car is parked over that pad, the car starts charging. A controller turns alternating current into direct current. An in-car display tells when the car is lined up and when charging has started.The system uses magnetic resonance to couple power from the Base Charging Unit (BCU) to the Vehicle Charging Unit (VCU). “The system works on the principle of a magnetic resistance similar to charging an electric toothbrush,” said Qualcomm’s Joe Barret, a Qualcomm executive. © 2011 PhysOrg.comcenter_img (PhysOrg.com) — Qualcomm has demonstrated its new wireless power transmission system for electric vehicles (EVs) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The system, including one pad for power transmitting, another for power-receiving, and control unit, uses the inductive transfer method to charge an EV. The chip-maker’s technology, Inductive Power Transfer (IPT), has a technology history that rests with the company that it acquired in November, HaloIPT. The latter, which made a name for itself in developing wireless charging technology for EVs, was a spinoff from the University of Auckland in New Zealand. This document is subject to copyright.
