The movie follow his journey to a young adult with his best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly, mastering spell-casting and eventually leading to a confrontation with the dark wizard Voldemort, who is so powerful adult wizards dare not speak his name.In the other corner, we have Merlin from the new BBC UK TV series, a re-imagination of the archetypal British myth.

The expert developed a new system of harness electricity that could prove very efficient. He and his team propose that highways and roads be outfitted with a series of devices that would turn the weight of passing energy into electrical current.The team believes that this process could generate enough current to make the initial investment worthwhile.
A single energy-harnessing device of the type the Mexican group proposes could theoretically produce enough electricity to power up an entire household for a day, Science Daily reports. These tools work based on the standard laws of gravitational energy

Researchers have built an artificial-heart-like pump that could extract electricity using microbial fuel cells that are fed on human urine or other waste products.It's a first: researchers have built the first artificial-heart-like pump that is powered by microbial fuel cells fed on human urine. But instead of being used as a prosthetic device for human patients suffering from cardiac failure, the pump is intended to be used in "EcoBots" that extract energy from organic waste and turn it into electricity.
The researchers, from the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol have published their paper in Bioinspiration &Biomimetics.
Scientists showed volunteers patterns of dots on a computer and asked them to tell which side of the screen contained more dots, the right or left. Here's the kicker: the researchers gave the subjects a higher reward if they selected the right side, even if it was incorrect. And with this incentive, subjects were more likely to cheat in the afternoon than in the morning.In another experiment the scientists showed the subjects fragments of words, and asked them to complete the word. For example, they might see the last three letters, R, A, L, of a five-letter word. And surprisingly in the morning the participants tended come up with the word "moral" whereas in the afternoon the word of choice was “coral.”
The researchers also found that people who tend to cheat regularly were just as likely to do so in the morning as in the afternoon. It was the more ethical folks who suffered lapses as the day wore on. So the early bird gets the worm…and the truth.—Christie Nicholson
