Christel Deskins

If you’ve got a tech-obsessed friend, you’ll know there’s nothing better than gifting them a brand new gadget that they can mess around with. But we also know that buying these new devices depends on the kind of person your friend is, which makes it a bit more difficult to give them something they don’t have or something they didn’t know they needed.

We’ve rounded up a few different gift ideas, so no matter what kind of friend you have, you’ll be able to grab a fun new toy for them to play with.

They also make pretty good gifts if you’re looking to treat yourself too.

The turbulence model called Gyrokinetic Electromagnetic Numerical Experiment (GENE), developed at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) at Garching, Germany, has proven to be very useful for the theoretical description of turbulence in the plasma of tokamak-type fusion devices. Extended for the more complex geometry of stellarator-type devices, computer simulations with GENE now indicate a new method to reduce plasma turbulence in stellarator plasmas. This could significantly increase the efficiency of a future fusion power plant.


For the fusion researchers at IPP, who want to develop a power plant based on the model of the sun, the turbulence formation in its fuel—a hydrogen plasma—is a central research topic. The small eddies carry particles and heat

    OZARK, AR (KFSM) — Since the coronavirus pandemic began, many rural school districts in our area have been worried about the lack of high-speed internet access. It’s a tool teachers need to keep kids on track in a virtual learning environment.

Senator John Boozman and Congressman Bruce Westerman joined Arkansas Valley Electric in Ozark Friday (Sept. 18) as they were awarded a 151 million dollar grant. They’re partnering with Virtual Wave Connect to bring broadband internet across the state of Arkansas and parts of Oklahoma.

“There’s a big willingness in Congress to provide the funding through lots of different entities. The Department of Agriculture was involved, the Federal Communications Commission was involved, the list goes on and on,” said Senator Boozman.

The Ozark School superintendent says when classes went virtual back in the spring, 20% of Ozark students did not have access to
