General elections are often a prompt for Indian prime ministers to take strategic big bang" decisions that they put off making during most of their time in office. Atal Bihari Vajpayee could have followed up the 1998 series of nuclear tests by ordering the launch of an inter continental ballistic missile (ICBM), the design of which the Advanced Systems Laboratory, Hyderabad, had on its shelf for several years previously and was itching to test. It could have won the Bharatiya Janata Party a second term. Manmohan Singh could have derailed Narendra Modi s ambitions in 2014 had he mustered the gumption to resume thermonuclear testing on the reasonable ground that the fusion device tested in the Shakti series of tests under a BJP dispensation had fizzled. Modi likely approved the testing of the anti satellite (A SAT) weapon, a capability former chiefs of the Defence Research and Development Organisation maintain was in suspended animation for almost a decade, as insurance against his re election prospects trended in the wrong direction. Besides, it doesn t hurt to blow up a satellite in space with a direct missile hit to follow up on the Balakot air strike as a way to burnish the Prime Minister s tough guy image. But mark this: In each case, the decision was made or not made for extraneous reasons, and not to strategically advantage the country.But a test is a test is a test, and deciding to green signal it is the easy part. The more difficult thing to do, and where Indian prime ministers have tripped up, is to sustain the momentum of such tests test firings and similar seminal developments in the indigenous science and technology sphere, and then convert technology demonstration into military prowess. So, Jawaharlal Nehru, progenitor of the dual use nuclear energy programme, suddenly got cold feet when it came to testing a nuclear device and weaponizing once the plutonium reprocessing unit in Trombay went on stream and began producing bomb grade fissile material in 1964. Indira Gandhi approved the first nuclear test in 1974, and then, by barring further testing, brought the weapons programme to a shuddering halt, consigning India to strategic limbo for some 25 years. Not to be outdone, Vajpayee, despite knowing that the thermonuclear device tested in 1998 was a dud, announced a moratorium on underground testing. The reason in each case was the same strong external pressure, which is just another way of saying these prime ministers lacked the iron will to put national interest ahead of whatever puny rewards the external powers offered India for ceasing and desisting and otherwise remaining a subservient state. The question is, will Modi use the A SAT success to obtain for India comprehensively capable and deployable anti satellite missile forces able to take out enemy low earth orbit (LEO) satellites providing tactical military information and high earth orbit (HEO) satellites affording wide area strategic coverage, including spotting Indian missile launches?
It turns out that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez 's Green New Deal (GND) isn 't so popular after all. In a Senate resolution vote this week, not one senator - not even the Senate bill s chief sponsor Ed Markey, D Mass. voted in favor of it. Aside from a couple of centrists who voted no, most Democrats demonstrated they don 't have the courage of their convictions by dodging the issue and merely voting "present " when their names were called.

The Korean version of the Galaxy S10 5G will be powered by Samsung 's Exynos 9820 together with the Exynos 5100 5G modem, essentially meaning Samsung will be the first to market with both a 5G phone and silicon.

Three South Korean carriers mdash; KT, SK Telecom, and LG Uplus mdash; will begin offering their 5G services starting on that date. According to a report, the Galaxy S10 5G has passed signal verification test by the National Radio Research Agency earlier this week, which gives the smartphone the green light to enter the market.Pricing of the Galaxy S10 5G that is set to be equipped with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of NAND flash storage is not completely clear. Citing industry sources, the state funded Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday that the smartphone was expected to cost around 1.5 million won. Typically prices in South Korea have sales tax when listed, as do most of the world, so the pre tax equivalent price in the US would be $1,199.
