Style + Tech = Sennheiser Momentum Headphones

first_imgBehold the first-ever content series between Digital Trends and The Manual. The Bromance has begun. Since there are a plethora of brands out there melding style and technology, we thought we would take this opportunity to profile one item per week for the month of October, breaking them down and offering each of our unique takes on their tech and style components.For the whole series, click here; for headphones that will look solid with your best “going out” kit while sounding even better, read on …Digital Trends:You know what’s funny? How easily we’re marketed to. In this day and age, a celebrity endorsement can run rough shod over any sensible appraisal of an otherwise questionable product. Need an example? Headphones. With all due respect to Dr. Dre (seriously, Doctor? This is with respect. Please don’t hurt us), we’ve reached a point where every ninny from Snooki to Tim Tebow has slapped their name on a some cheap cans and apparently that’s more important to us than things like “high dynamic range” and “sound signature,” because we keep buying them.You know who still cares about those kinds of things? Sennheiser. The company has been producing headphones since the late 40s and, at this point, makes headphones at nearly every price point that are as good or better than its competitors. We know; such exhaustive attention to detail in so many different products is very German of them.So, if you’re looking for something that might make a professional sound engineer weep, we can point you toward something like the HD 800. If you’re looking for something that can go toe-to-toe with Dre’s best Beats, but looks classically dope instead of dopily plastic, we present the Momentum.The Manual:Speaking of dope, what can kill a good looking, well planned outfit? Crappy looking candy colored cans over your ears. Dude, you aren’t in middle school anymore and matching the color of your headphones to your kicks is just redorkulous.Men’s fashion has been looking rather woodsy as of late and the Sennheiser Momentum fit’s that feel to a ‘T,’ without being cheesy (just say no to faux wood grain anything, people). The premium brown leather ear pads and headband offer great style as well as breathability during your Mumford & Sons solo jam sessions and the handsome hard carrying case would look just as good carrying cufflinks (or a bottle of bourbon?) as these headphones. We don’t often call headphones ‘timeless’, but these Momentum’s are something a music nut might just pass down to his kids in the unlikely event that we are still using headphones in 30 years … Editors’ Recommendations Become a Tiki Garnish Master With These 6 Expert Tips Why People are Now Drinking Maple Syrup During Tough Workouts 10 Best History Books You Will Ever Read 10 Reasons Why Yuzu Should Be Your New Favorite Cocktail Ingredient How to Use a Vibrating Foam Roller Like Tom Brady last_img read more

Paris Attacks Terror Suspect Refuses to Answer Questions in Belgian Court

Rabat – Salah Abdeslam, the only surviving suspect of the November 2015 killings in Paris that left 130 people dead, has refused to answer questions at his trial opening on February 5 in Belgium. When asked by the judge to provide his personal details, the 28-year-old, who refused to stand, said that he “does not wish to answer questions” and that he would remain silent throughout the four-day process. “My silence does not make me a criminal or guilty. I am defending myself by remaining silent,” Abdeslam told the court. “I am not afraid of you, I am not afraid of your allies. I put my trust in Allah and that’s all, I have nothing else to add,” he added. Abdeslam’s refusal to cooperate with the court may prove a disappointment to survivors and families of the 130 people who died, hoping he might end more than two years of silence to provide some indication of how and why the attacks were organized.Abdeslam is a French passport-holder of Moroccan origins, whose brother is also believed to have been involved as one of the seven other attackers who detonated a suicide bomb inside a packed restaurant.The Paris attacks targeted the Stade de France during a France-Germany football match, as well as bars and restaurants around the 10th and 11th arrondissements of north Paris, and the Bataclan theatre during a rock concert, where 89 people were killed.The Islamic State immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, described by the former French president François Hollande as “an act of war.” According to investigative elements, the operation was planned in Syria and organised by a group in Brussels.After a four-month international manhunt, Abdeslam was shot in the leg before being arrested in a police raid in the Molenbeek area of Brussels on March 18, 2016. He was handed over to French authorities and placed in a high-security prison close to France’s northern border to allow for his daily transfer to the Palace of Justice in Brussels throughout his four-day trial. read more

Le nombre de baleines croisant au large de New York surprend les

first_imgLe nombre de baleines croisant au large de New York surprend les scientifiquesLe 4 mai à New York, des universitaires américains ont présenté à la presse les surprenants résultats d’une surveillance acoustique sous-marine menée au large de la Grosse Pomme : au moins 6 espèces de grandes baleines fréquentent assidument les parages de la mégapole.Baleine bleue, rorqual commun, baleine à bosse, petit rorqual, rorqual boréal, baleine franche noire… : autant d’espèces de grands cétacés dont les vocalises – différentiables par les experts – ont été détectées par un réseau d’enregistreurs sous-marins au large de Long Island et dans le port de New York, entre 2008 et 2009. Ceci dans le cadre d’un vaste projet conçu pour étudier les sons d’origine humaine le long de la côte est américaine, et leur impact sur la faune marine.À lire aussiPourquoi le son de notre voix nous paraît-il si étrange sur un enregistrement ?Plus encore que le nombre d’espèces, c’est la densité même de ces animaux à proximité de la plus grande ville de l’Atlantique – parfois à une quinzaine de kilomètres seulement – qui a étonné les scientifiques. “Si vous étiez debout au sommet de la Statue de la Liberté et regardiez vers le sud ou le sud-est, vous verriez des baleines chanter sous la surface”, explique au National Geographic Christopher Clark, chercheur en bioacoustique à l’Université Cornell à Ithaca (Etat de New York).La technique ne permet toutefois pas de dénombrer précisément ces cétacés, qui fréquentent les eaux de la Grosse Pomme soit de façon sédentaire, soit au cours de leur trajet migratoire vers leurs aires de nourrissage situées plus au nord. “Maintenant que nous savons qu’ils sont là, notre prochaine question sera de savoir combien ils sont”, conclut Aaron Rice, directeur scientifique du laboratoire de bioacoustique.Le 15 mai 2011 à 12:03 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Des chercheurs décodent le génome dun cheval vieux de 700 000 ans

first_imgDes chercheurs décodent le génome d’un cheval vieux de 700 000 ansPour la première fois au monde, des chercheurs sont parvenus à décrypter le génome d’un cheval vieux de 700.000 ans. Il s’agit du plus ancien génome jamais analysé à ce jour. Un exploit qui pousse les scientifiques à espérer pouvoir étudier de près l’ADN de fossiles qu’on croyait jusqu’alors trop endommagé pour livrer des informations exploitables.C’est en 2003 que tout a commencé avec la découverte d’un morceau d’os fossilisé et ancré dans le permafrost du Yukon canadien. Grâce à quelques analyses, les chercheurs ont déterminé qu’il s’agissait d’un “bout de métapode, un élément d’un os long de la jambe”, mais celui-ci n’était que “partiel, environ 15 cm de long sur 8 cm de large”, explique à l’AFP Ludovic Orlando, chercheur français du Centre de géogénétique du Muséum d’Histoire naturelle du Danemark. Cela n’a toutefois pas empêché les spécialistes de déterminer qu’il appartenait à un cheval vieux de plusieurs milliers d’années, en comparant l’os extrêmement bien conservé avec ceux d’autres équidés préhistoriques et actuels. Mieux encore, en se fiant à l’os et à la strate de permafrost dans lequel il a été retrouvé, les chercheurs danois ont pu préciser son âge : environ 735.000 ans. Bien que le spécimen soit particulièrement vieux, ils ont alors tenté d’analyser le génome de cet os. Un séquençage délicatLa tâche n’est pas si évidente quand on sait que jusqu’ici, le plus ancien génome jamais séquencé était celui de l’homme de Denisova qui était tout de même dix fois moins ancien puisqu’il datait de 70.000 à 80.000 ans. Toutefois, les chercheurs ne sont pas découragés. “C’était une occasion unique pour pousser nos technologies à la limite [ … ] Moi-même, pour être honnête, quand on a commencé le sujet, je pensais que ce n’était pas possible !”, souligne M. Orlando, également auteur principal de l’étude publiée mercredi dans la revue Nature.Après s’être assurés que les molécules de l’os ont bien été préservées par le gel, les chercheurs ont découvert des constituants du collagène (protéine principale des os) qu’ils ont réussi à séquencer. Mais à leur grand étonnement, ils ont également retrouvé d’autres molécules, comme les marqueurs des vaisseaux sanguins qui irriguaient cet os. Combinés, tous ces éléments ont été suffisants pour se mettre à y chercher de l’ADN avec la technologie dite de “deuxième génération”, la seule disponible à l’époque. Néanmoins, le résultat était peu satisfaisant, poussant les scientifiques à embrayer sur une technique génomique de “troisième génération” (qui permet de séquencer les molécules d’ADN sans les manipuler) de façon à préserver au maximum des molécules déjà fortement dégradées par le passage du temps. “On a essayé de l’améliorer encore en changeant certains paramètres, comme la température, la méthode d’extraction, etc.”, précise le chercheur.Un lointain cousin des chevaux modernes C’est ainsi que les généticiens ont obtenu un résultat trois à quatre fois meilleur que le précédent. Après avoir retrouvé dans un premier temps, “une séquence équine sur 200, on est passé quasiment à dix fois plus”, indique M. Orlando. “On a des tout petits bouts mais comme on en a beaucoup, on est capable de réassembler ça sur un génome de référence. Comme un vase qui serait brisé en mille morceaux, c’est un puzzle mais avec des milliards de pièces !”.Ceci a permis de constater que le spécimen auquel appartient l’os “est clairement un membre de l’espèce cheval”, un lointain cousin situé “à l’extérieur du groupe de tous les chevaux modernes”. Au vu des données obtenues, l’animal était “beaucoup plus grand que les poneys actuels, plus grand que les chevaux Fjord. Il avait la taille des chevaux islandais”. Mais ce n’est pas tout puisque la prouesse a également permis de découvrir que l’ancêtre commun à tous les équidés modernes est apparu voici environ quatre millions d’années, soit deux fois plus tôt que ce qu’on pensait.Une prouesse qui ouvre des voies À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Outre cette découverte d’importance, l’exploit ouvre également des perspectives techniques capitales puisqu’on peut désormais imaginer analyser un jour de l’ADN très vieux, d’animaux préhistoriques, voire d’ancêtres de l’Homme. “À peu près 10 % des molécules de très petite taille vont survivre au-delà d’un million d’années dans ces conditions-là. Et la bonne nouvelle, c’est que ces molécules ont suffisamment d’information pour permettre de les détecter”, explique M. Orlando. Ainsi, “on ouvre une porte qu’on pensait fermée à jamais ! Tout va dépendre de l’avancée des technologies, mais on a des tonnes d’arguments pour penser que ça va mener à un coffre-fort plutôt qu’à une impasse”, estime le chercheur toujours cité par l’AFP.Le 27 juin 2013 à 15:31 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Toshiba DynaEdge Smart Glasses Fit a Monitor in a Monocle

first_img As far as future fashion goes, glasses that double as computers always seemed like a no-brainer. They are as inevitable as flying cars and total rule by corporations. And yet even as wearable technology becomes more of a thing, folks just don’t see that interested in strapping computers to their face. Google Glass, Snapchat Specs, and HoloLens are all non-starters. VR surrendered to fascists. Augmented reality has promise but we’re still waiting on ambitious start-ups like Magic Leap to pull through.If you’re looking forward to some hot eye tech to be stoked about though, consider checking out the Toshiba DynaEdge. It’s basically a Windows 10-powered monitor condensed into a monocle.The Toshiba DynaEdge consists of two parts. The eyepiece is a 640 x 360 display that rests over a single eye, providing AR functionality as well as the ability to still see the real world. It’s connected to a second piece, a computer the size of a smartphone but that packs laptop-class power. Together, you can use DynaEdge to access the full Windows 10 operating system with your eyes.The specs are impressive for such a small, unusual device. DynaEdge has an Intel 6th Generation m Processor, Intel HD Graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, 802.11ac and LTE wireless, USB ports and MicroSD slots, a headphone jack, and a fingerprint scanner. It’s a real computer, albeit one that fits into a belt case and hooks up to your eyeball. Toshiba even claims four hours of battery life.Being able to run Windows 10 gives DynaEdge familiarity with millions of users and software makers who already use Microsoft’s OS all the time. But obviously being smart glasses changes up how users interact with the device. Inputs include a touchpad on the side of the eyepiece and buttons on the computer itself. Toshiba is developing custom software and in the future it wants others to do the same. One idea involved connecting DynaEdge to safety goggles and providing constructor workers with up-to-date data about a current project.Like pretty much all of these kinds of products, DynaEdge isn’t ready for consumers yet. We don’t know what it costs. Even after two years of research, Toshiba is still testing it internally and with employees at other close companies. But if Toshiba has its way, and consumers respond, smart glasses like DynaEdge may finally be the future of laptop computing.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Hitlers phone sold for 243000

first_imgThis undated image obtained from Alexander Historical Auctions shows a phone belonging to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler which will be auctioned by Alexander Historical Auctions in Chesapeake City, Maryland, on 19 February, 2017. Photo: AFPAdolf Hitler’s personal telephone, which the Fuehrer used to dictate many of his deadly World War II commands, sold at auction on Sunday for $243,000, the US house selling it announced.Originally a black Bakelite phone, later painted crimson and engraved with Hitler’s name, the relic was found in the Nazi leader’s Berlin bunker in 1945 following the regime’s defeat.The auction house Alexander Historical Auctions, which did not reveal the winning bidder’s identity, had estimated its worth between $200,000 and $300,000. The starting bid was set at $100,000.The Maryland company auctioned off more than a thousand items including the phone and a porcelain sculpture of an Alsatian dog for $24,300.Both winners bid by telephone.More than 70 years old, the Siemens rotary telephone is embossed with a swastika and the eagle symbolic of the Third Reich.Alexander House dubbed the phone—which Hitler received from the Wehrmacht, Nazi Germany’s armed forces—as “arguably the most destructive ‘weapon’ of all time, which sent millions to their deaths.”It said Hitler used it to give most of his orders during the last two years of World War II.Russian officers gave the device to British Brigadier Sir Ralph Rayner during a tour of the bunker shortly after Germany’s surrender.Rayner’s son, who inherited the phone, put it up for sale, its paint now peeling to reveal the original synthetic black resin surface.Andreas Kornfeld of Alexander House told AFP its estimates were based on a number of factors, including “rarity and uniqueness.”“It would be impossible to find a more impactful relic than the primary tool used by the most evil man in history,” the auction house said in a statement. “This was not a staid office telephone.”“This was Hitler’s mobile device of destruction.”last_img read more

Research shows isoprene from biofuel plants likely to lead to ozone deaths

first_imgEffect of replacing crops and grasses with high-emitting SRC species in our biofuel cultivation scenario. Credit: Nature Climate Change (2013) doi:10.1038/nclimate1788 Journal information: Nature Climate Change More information: Impacts of biofuel cultivation on mortality and crop yields, Nature Climate Change (2013) doi:10.1038/nclimate1788AbstractGround-level ozone is a priority air pollutant, causing ~ 22,000 excess deaths per year in Europe, significant reductions in crop yields and loss of biodiversity. It is produced in the troposphere through photochemical reactions involving oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The biosphere is the main source of VOCs, with an estimated 1,150 TgC yr−1 (~ 90% of total VOC emissions) released from vegetation globally4. Isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) is the most significant biogenic VOC in terms of mass (around 500 TgC yr−1) and chemical reactivity and plays an important role in the mediation of ground-level ozone concentrations5. Concerns about climate change and energy security are driving an aggressive expansion of bioenergy crop production and many of these plant species emit more isoprene than the traditional crops they are replacing. Here we quantify the increases in isoprene emission rates caused by cultivation of 72 Mha of biofuel crops in Europe. We then estimate the resultant changes in ground-level ozone concentrations and the impacts on human mortality and crop yields that these could cause. Our study highlights the need to consider more than simple carbon budgets when considering the cultivation of biofuel feedstock crops for greenhouse-gas mitigation. (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers from the Lancaster Environment Centre, in the UK has found that planting trees for use as a biofuel source, near populated areas, is likely to increase human deaths due to inhalation of ozone. The team, in their paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change, suggests that increased levels of isoprene emitted from such trees, when interacting with other air pollutants can lead to increased levels of ozone in the air which might also lead to lower crop yields. Isoprene research could lead to eco-friendly car tires To reduce the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, governments and private groups have turned to biofuels as an alternate source. In Europe, fast growing trees such as eucalyptus, willow and poplar, have been planted and are being used to create biofuels which can be burned in engines and generators. Such trees have been seen as an attractive alternative to other edible crops, such as corn, because growing them doesn’t impact the price of food. Now however, this new research suggests that there is a different price to pay when using trees to produce biofuels.The problem, the researchers say, is that the types of trees used to produce biofuels emit high levels of the chemical isoprene into the air. Prior research has shown that when isoprene mixes with other pollutants (such as nitric oxides), ozone is produced. In this new research, the team suggests that using such trees as a biofuel could result in up to 1,400 deaths per year in Europe – per the European Union’s 2020 tree planting goal – attributable to increased amounts of ozone in the air, along with $7.1 billion in additional health care costs and crop losses.Plans for using trees as a biofuel resource generally involve planting near large urban areas to avoid incurring transportation costs. Such plantings, the researchers suggest, would lead to lung problems and deaths for people living in those areas. Conversely, if large numbers of such trees were planted in rural areas, edible crops would be adversely impacted, leading to less production and higher costs.The team also notes that ozone is currently blamed (by the European Environment Agency) for the deaths of 22,000 people in Europe each year.center_img Citation: Research shows isoprene from biofuel plants likely to lead to ozone deaths (2013, January 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-01-isoprene-biofuel-ozone-deaths.html © 2013 Phys.org Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Bubble technique used to measure shear forces between graphene sheets

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from China and the U.S. has devised a relatively simple means for measuring the shear forces that exist between sheets of graphene and other materials. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes the technique and the results they found when using it to measure shear forces for several types of 2-D materials. More information: Guorui Wang et al. Measuring Interlayer Shear Stress in Bilayer Graphene, Physical Review Letters (2017). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.119.036101ABSTRACTMonolayer two-dimensional (2D) crystals exhibit a host of intriguing properties, but the most exciting applications may come from stacking them into multilayer structures. Interlayer and interfacial shear interactions could play a crucial role in the performance and reliability of these applications, but little is known about the key parameters controlling shear deformation across the layers and interfaces between 2D materials. Herein, we report the first measurement of the interlayer shear stress of bilayer graphene based on pressurized microscale bubble loading devices. We demonstrate continuous growth of an interlayer shear zone outside the bubble edge and extract an interlayer shear stress of 40 kPa based on a membrane analysis for bilayer graphene bubbles. Meanwhile, a much higher interfacial shear stress of 1.64 MPa was determined for monolayer graphene on a silicon oxide substrate. Our results not only provide insights into the interfacial shear responses of the thinnest structures possible, but also establish an experimental method for characterizing the fundamental interlayer shear properties of the emerging 2D materials for potential applications in multilayer systems. Explore further 2-D layered devices can self-assemble with precision As graphene sheets are used in more applications, it has become important to better understand the shear forces at play between them and other materials. Learning more could prevent sheets from coming apart, for example, when they are used to make an electronic device. In some applications, graphene sheets are layered with other graphene sheets, while in others, graphene sheets are applied to sheets of other materials. But until now, there was no way to measure how well such materials clung to one another. Traditionally, such measurements are made by adhering sheets of material and then pulling them in opposite directions—a means of measuring their shear force. But because graphene sheets are single atom thick, that approach is not feasible. In this new effort, the researchers have found a new way to measure shear forces between such materials.In the new method, tiny holes were drilled in one sheet before it was adhered to another sheet. Air was then used to generate pressure from below, causing the top sheet to rise and pulling the sheet below with it, forming a bubble. The researchers then used Raman spectroscopy to measure the amount of stretching at the base of the bubble as a means of measuring the shear forces between the two materials.Using their technique, the researchers were able to measure the shear force between two sheets of graphene and found it to be 40 kPa, which is considered very small and unsurprising, as sheets of graphene have been used as a lubricant. The team also measured the shear force between a sheet of graphene and a sheet of silicon dioxide, and found it to be 1.64 MPa—which is approximately 40 times greater than the shear force between graphene sheets.center_img Journal information: Physical Review Letters © 2017 Phys.org Citation: Bubble technique used to measure shear forces between graphene sheets (2017, July 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-07-technique-sheer-graphene-sheets.html This cutaway shows the bulging that occurs when air is pumped through a hole underneath a graphene sheet.

6000 people march for LGBTI equality in Kiev Ukraine

first_imgAccording to Rėmy Bonny, a political science student focusing on LGBTI politics in Central and Eastern Europe, this year’s parade garnered the support of various Ukrainian members of the European Parliament. Among them are Svitlana Zalishuck and Rebecca Harms.‘This is the third year in a row that the Pride is able to happen peacefully,’ Zalischuk said. ‘LGBT+ rights are not just important for the LGBT+ community, but for the whole country. Countries with more equality for the LGBT+ community also have higher levels of GDP [Gross Domestic Product].’Anything else?Last year, 2,000 people marched in Kiev Pride. And much like this year’s event, marchers were met with violent anti-LGBTI protesters, some even burning rainbow flags.Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . Marchers at Kiev Pride 2018 About 6,000 people marched in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev in support of LGBTI equality. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) On Sunday, 27 June, Kiev hosted its annual Pride parade. With roughly 6,000 participants, this was a record high turnout for the event.Nationalist oppositionStill, a nationalist group known as C14 tried to prevent the parade from happening. About 150 of these nationalists attempted to block the streets prior to the event.Before the event began, 56 people were arrested due to a clash between law enforcement and nationalists at a nearby Opera house. The clash left several officers injured.About 5,000 police officers showed up to guard the event. 2,500 of them formed a chain around the LGBTI marchers to protect them from attacks by the nationalists. This secure space only allowed entry via metal detectors.Nevertheless, LGBTI marchers were warned not to return to the city’s center after being brought via subway to an unknown location. This was due to threats by nationalists, who LGBTI activists believe will attempt to attack them after the festivities.Staying positive‘Despite the threats, I felt happy,’ activist Ulyana Movchan said of the event. ‘For once, LGBT-people felt themselves safe in the streets of [Kiev].

Red Hat Summit 2019 Highlights Microsoft collaboration Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8

first_imgThe 3-day Red Hat Summit 2019 kicked off yesterday at Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, United States. Since yesterday, there have been a lot of exciting announcements on board including the collaboration of Red Hat with Microsoft where Satya Nadella (Microsoft’s CEO) came over to announce this collaboration. Red Hat also announced the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, an IDC study predicting $10 trillion global revenue for Red Hat by the end of 2019 and much more. Let us have a look at each of these announcements in brief. Azure Red Hat OpenShift: A Red Hat and Microsoft collaboration The latest Red Hat and Microsoft collaboration, Azure Red Hat OpenShift, must be important – when the Microsoft’s CEO himself came across from Seattle to present it. Red Hat had already brought OpenShift to Azure last year. This is the next step in its partnership with Microsoft. The new Azure Red Hat OpenShift combines Red Hat’s enterprise Kubernetes platform OpenShift (running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) with Microsoft’s Azure cloud. With Azure Red Hat OpenShift, customers can combine Kubernetes-managed, containerized applications into Azure workflows. In particular, the two companies see this pairing as a road forward for hybrid-cloud computing. Paul Cormier, President of Products and Technologies at RedHat, said, “Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides a consistent Kubernetes foundation for enterprises to realize the benefits of this hybrid cloud model. This enables IT leaders to innovate with a platform that offers a common fabric for both app developers and operations.” Some features of the Azure Red Hat OpenShift include: Fully managed clusters with master, infrastructure and application nodes managed by Microsoft and Red Hat; plus, no VMs to operate and no patching required. Regulatory compliance will be provided through compliance certifications similar to other Azure services. Enhanced flexibility to more freely move applications from on-premise environments to the Azure public cloud via the consistent foundation of OpenShift. Greater speed to connect to Azure services from on-premises OpenShift deployments. Extended productivity with easier access to Azure public cloud services such as Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Machine Learning and Azure SQL DB for building the next-generation of cloud-native enterprise applications. According to the official press release, “Microsoft and Red Hat are also collaborating to bring customers containerized solutions with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 on Azure, Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.8 and Ansible Certified modules. In addition, the two companies are working to deliver SQL Server 2019 with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 support and performance enhancements.” Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) is now generally available Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) gives a consistent OS across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. It also provides users with version choice, long life-cycle commitments, a robust ecosystem of certified hardware, software, and cloud partners, and now comes with built-in management and predictive analytics. Features of RHEL 8 Support for latest and emerging technologies RHEL 8 is supported across different architectures and environments such that the user has a consistent and stable OS experience. This helps them to adapt to emerging tech trends such as machine learning, predictive analytics, Internet of Things ( IoT), edge computing, and big data workloads. This is mainly due to the hardware innovations like the GPUS, which can assist machine learning workloads. RHEL 8 is supported to deploy and manage GPU-accelerated NGC containers on Red Hat OpenShift. These AI containers deliver integrated software stacks and drivers to run GPU-optimized machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, Caffe2, PyTorch, MXNet, and others. Also, NVIDIA’s DGX-1 and DGX-2 servers are RHEL certified and are designed to deliver powerful solutions for complex AI challenges. Introduction of Application Streams RHEL 8 introduces Application Streams where fast-moving languages, frameworks and developer tools are updated frequently without impacting the core resources. This melds faster developer innovation with production stability in a single, enterprise-class operating system. Abstracts complexities in granular sysadmin tasks with RHEL web console RHEL 8 abstracts away many of the deep complexities of granular sysadmin tasks behind the Red Hat Enterprise Linux web console. The console provides an intuitive, consistent graphical interface for managing and monitoring the Red Hat Enterprise Linux system, from the health of virtual machines to overall system performance. To further improve ease of use, RHEL supports in-place upgrades, providing a more streamlined, efficient and timely path for users to convert Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 instances to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 systems. Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Roles for managing and configuring Linux in production The Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Roles automate many of the more complex tasks around managing and configuring Linux in production. Powered by Red Hat Ansible Automation, System Roles are pre-configured Ansible modules that enable ready-made automated workflows for handling common, complex sysadmin tasks. This automation makes it easier for new systems administrators to adopt Linux protocols and helps to eliminate human error as the cause of common configuration issues. Supports OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3 cryptographic standards To enhance security, RHEL 8 supports the OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3 cryptographic standards. This provides access to the strongest, latest standards in cryptographic protection that can be implemented system-wide via a single command, limiting the need for application-specific policies and tuning. Support for the Red Hat container toolkit With cloud-native applications and services frequently driving digital transformation, RHEL 8 delivers full support for the Red Hat container toolkit. Based on open standards, the toolkit provides technologies for creating, running and sharing containerized applications. It helps to streamline container development and eliminates the need for bulky, less secure container daemons. Other additions in the RHEL 8 include: It drives added value for specific hardware configurations and workloads, including the Arm and POWER architectures as well as real-time applications and SAP solutions. It forms the foundation for Red Hat’s entire hybrid cloud portfolio, starting with Red Hat OpenShift 4 and the upcoming Red Hat OpenStack Platform 15. Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS, a minimal footprint operating system designed to host Red Hat OpenShift deployments is built on RHEL 8 and will be released soon. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is also broadly supported as a guest operating system on Red Hat hybrid cloud infrastructure, including Red Hat OpenShift 4, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 15 and Red Hat Virtualization 4.3. Red Hat Universal Base Image becomes generally available Red Hat Universal Base Image, a userspace image derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux for building Red Hat certified Linux containers is now generally available. The Red Hat Universal Base Image is available to all developers with or without a Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription, providing a more secure and reliable foundation for building enterprise-ready containerized applications. Applications built with the Universal Base Image can be run anywhere and will experience the benefits of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux life cycle and support from Red Hat when it is run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Nadu File image of MK Stalin PTI Stalin Leader of Opposition in state Assembly urged the AIADMK government to adopt a resolution in the House during the current session seeking to insist that the state will supervise the safety of its dams "DMK considers as yet another attack by the BJP-led Central government on states’ autonomy the Union cabinet’s June 13 2018 approval to enact a law on on dam safety" he said in a statement Stalin recalled that a similar effort was made in 1987 but the said draft then faced stiff resistance as it "amounted to snatching away state governments’ rights" When the bill was moved in the Lok Sabha in 2010 during the UPA regime it was referred to a Standing Committee following opposition he said The UPA draft Stalin said provided a ‘Choice’ to a state government allowing it to pass an Assembly resolution over dam safety This clause of ‘Choice’ was missing in the NDA’s draft on the issue he said and accused the Centre of ‘trying to do away’ with a right in the State list He alleged that states have not been consulted on the new draft and criticised the Union cabinet for taking "unilateral decision" on the matter Stating that Tamil Nadu was
