Long-horned beetle (family Cerambycidae), commonly known as longicorn, is any of the approximately 25,000 species of beetles (insect order Coleoptera) whose common name comes from their extraordinarily long antennae. These beetles can be found all throughout the world, but they are most common in the tropics. They are available in sizes ranging from 2 to 152 mm (less than 1/8 inch to about 6 inches). When the antennae are added, these lengths may double or triple.
A pie chart is a form of graph that uses a circular graph to display data. The graph’s parts are proportional to the percentage of the total in each group. In other words, the size of each slice of the pie is proportional to the size of the group as a whole. The full “pie” represents 100% of the whole whereas the pie “slices” represent sections of the whole.
CloverDB is the work of a great friend and fellow Computer Scientist, Stefano Scafiti. It is a lightweight NoSQL database designed for being simple and easily maintainable, thanks to its small codebase. The project was inspired by tinyDB.

Venn diagrams AVenn diagram shows the relationship between sets. In a Venn diagram, a set is ‘usually represented by a circle, and the universal set by a rectangle. Elements of a· set are often represented ·by points in the circle. Each part of the diagram .is labeled and the parts being considered are shaded.
Liquid crystal (LC) is a state of matter with qualities that fall in between liquids and solid crystals.
A liquid crystal, for example, may flow like a liquid but have its molecules arranged in a crystal-like pattern.
Liquid-crystal phases come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each with its own set of optical properties (such as textures).
Domains where liquid-crystal molecules are orientated in opposite orientations correspond to the contrasting sections in the textures.
The molecules, on the other hand, are well organized within a domain.
It’s possible that LC materials aren’t always in a liquid-crystal state of matter (just as water may turn into ice or water vapor).
The Bagworm moth, also known as the Psychidae, is a fascinating species of moth that is found all around the world. What makes this moth unique is its ability to create and carry a protective case or bag that it constructs from natural materials found in its environment. Physical Characteristics...
