Discovered: the missing link that solves a mystery of evolution

Guardian Science reporting that “Scientists have made one of the most important fossil finds in history: a missing link between fish and land animals, showing how creatures first walked out of the water and on to dry land more than 375m years ago.

A cast of the fossil goes on display at the Science Museum in South Kensington central London today.

Improving data compression for digital images/camera

A new method developed (aka algorithms) for digital photos. This new method revolutionary new approach to the way the world compresses, transmits and archives data , especially images.

And How it works ?
REPETITION CODED Compression invented by MatrixView assigns a value of 1' for successively similar values (pixels) in an image. If the value in an image is different from the previous value, 0′ is assigned and the corresponding original value is stored in a table called Data Store'. This process is done for all the values in an image. The collection of zeroes and ones is called a bit plane. At the end of the process, there is a Data Store’ table and a bit plane. Such a process makes it possible to increase the compression without losing any data.
