NOW NIGERIANS CAN TALK TO THEIR GOVERNMENT FROM AN APP

Sometimes going to a government office in the middle of the day can be a bit of a cumbersome process. If you are in Lagos, the sun has probably reached its peak and buildings have become uncomfortably warm as you join the queue of people also seeking some service. However, having to physically visit a government office, in Lagos, may soon become a thing of the past. A mobile app known as “Citizens Gate”has been launched in Lagos by the state government that will allow citizens to access public services from their mobile phones.

Researchers Store Full Computer Operating System on DNA

Proving that everything old is new again, researchers are now storing data on the oldest information storage solution there is: DNA. A pair of researchers at Columbia University and the New York Genome Center (NYGC) have come up with a technique to store massive amounts of data on DNA. The result, according to study coauthor Yaniv Erlich, is the "highest-density data-storage device ever created."

The researchers say DNA is the perfect storage medium: it's ultra-compact and can last hundreds of thousands of years if kept cool and dry, according to a news release from Columbia.

"DNA won't degrade over time like cassette tapes and CDs, and it won't become obsolete—if it does, we have bigger problems," Erlich, a computer science professor at Columbia Engineering, said in a statement.
