Amid pandemic, mopeds have a moment in car-loving US | AFP

No traffic jams, easy parking and social distancing: more and more New Yorkers are turning to scooters to get around the city. “You avoid people, contact, you don’t have to sit in a Uber with somebody,” says Alan Taledia, who started riding a scooter during the pandemic. Retailers such as Chris Benson have noticed an uptick in sales. “There was a big boom from the end of April up to now, even on a daily basis,” Benson tells AFP. But many inexperienced riders using rental scooters have been involved in accidents, sometimes fatal. This week, the company Revel had to pause its services in New York City following the deaths of two riders.

“Voices from DARPA” Podcast, Episode 30: The Sensor Sorcerer

In this episode of the Voices from DARPA podcast, Dr. John Burke, a program manager since 2017 in the agency’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO), goes deep, quantum-mechanics deep. The miniaturized, affordable, and ultrastable atomic clocks he hopes to make possible would kick in if the GPS system were to go down due to natural or adversarial actions. Such clocks could keep the military machine viable while also preserving or even enhancing the operation of civilian must-haves ranging from financial transactions to ridesharing (think Uber and Lyft). Burke has teams of researchers pursuing magnificently sensitive magnetometers for detecting objects, materials, and activities otherwise hidden underground, underwater, or behind bone. Among these sensors’ potential applications is real-time, in-field diagnostics and monitoring of concussions, whether in battlefield or sports field settings. These and other sensing capabilities Burke is fostering are based largely on the quantum-mechanical ways that atoms behave (e.g., the invariant nuclear oscillations that serve at the ticks of atomic clocks) or respond to signals in the world (e.g., faint magnetic fields from brains or buried ordnance). The overall goal of this quantum-mechanical finessing, Burke says, is to “peer around the curtain to see more and more of everything around us.”
