Smartphones have become a vital part of life for most of us. We spend most of our day with a smartphone even more than what we devote to our loved ones. But what makes them important for us? Is it the mobility that we get from them? Or is it the smartness that they provide to us while on the move? Well, answers to such questions depend on how you use the smartphones. But one thing is quite clear that smartphones have evolved a lot from what we had in the past. They've got new designs, vivid display panels, multiple cameras, and more powerful processors than workstations of yesterday. But which were the best smartphones of the decade past?Apple, BlackBerry, Samsung, HTC, and Nokia were the initial smartphone companies that set some benchmarks for young contenders such as OnePlus, Vivo, and Xiaomi. Chipmakers largely including Qualcomm and MediaTek have also helped the market grow faster than ever predicted with processors supporting newer tasks and enhanced performance experiences. Both Apple and Google have also significantly improved their respective mobile operating systems, iOS and Android, which are running on all smartphones nowadays.
Black holes are regions of spacetime that form when massive stars collapse at the end of their life cycles and can continue to grow by absorbing stars and merging with other black holes. This interaction allows scientists to identify their presence, as electromagnetic radiation is given off as visible light across space. In this way, astronomers have identified numerous stellar black hole candidates in binary systems, and established that the radio source known as Sagittarius A , at the core of the Milky Way galaxy, contains a supermassive black hole of about 4.3 million solar masses.
Mars 2020 has earned its driver''s license, lead mobility systems engineer for Mars 2020 Rich Reiber said. The test unambiguously proved that the rover can operate under its own weight and demonstrated many of the autonomous navigation functions for the first time. This is a major milestone for Mars 2020. The rover has six wheels, each with a motor of its own, while the two front and two back wheels also have individual steering motors. This would allow the rover to swerve, curve, make arcing turns and to turn a full 360 degrees in place.
With launch just seven months away, NASA;s Mars 2020 rover passed its first driving test on 17 December, demonstrating the six wheel nuclear powered spacecraft can auto navigate around obstacles, climb over relatively large obstructions and manoeuvre as required. "Mars 2020 has earned its driver ''s license, " said Rich Rieber, the lead mobility systems engineer for the Mars 2020 project at NASA ''s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "The test unambiguously proved that the rover can operate under its own weight and demonstrated many of the autonomous navigation functions for the first time. This is a major milestone for Mars 2020. "

Apple''s Swift language was released in late 2014 and soon became popular as a modern programming language for iOS and Mac applications. In 2015 Apple announced that Swift would be open source and with a build for Linux as well as for Apple operating systems. "As soon as IBM learned this, we opened up conversations through partnership channels with Apple, and we began working on porting most of the major Foundation libraries in Swift to Linux," said an IBM blog from January this year.The outcome of that, in February 2016, was Big Blue''s release of Kitura, a server side framework built in Swift. The idea was to provide an easy path for mobile developers with Swift skills to build server components, APIs or web applications using the same language.
Our endocrine system is made up of the glands in our body that produce and release hormones. This includes the ovaries, testes, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, pituitary, pineal body, and pancreas. Cells that release hormones are also located in our gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidneys, and the placenta. Hormones are responsible for a variety of essential functions in our bodies. They affect our metabolism, growth, development, sexual and reproductive functions, as well as sleep, even our mood. Endocrine disruptors can imitate or block the actions of some hormones. They have the potential to negatively affect all those systems in our body affected by hormones. Some of the possible effects of endocrine disruptors include infertility, low birth weight, sexual dysfunction, early puberty, delayed puberty, obesity, heart disease and cancer.
And. . . stop Put down your pencils, class. The test is over. We have made it through another year. Well, okay, we have almost made it through most of this year. But with just two weeks left, now is the time to wrap it all up and revisit the biggest IBM i stories to make news in the year that was 2019.IBM jacked up the prices on IBM Lab Services engagements by more than 10 percent. Whereas it used to cost $3,125 per day to have the benefit of an IBM expert working on your Power Systems, it now costs $3,500 per day. That s quite a bit money to spend for one person for a day. But in light of the considerable abilities these Lab Services folks bring to the table in areas like Db2 Mirror, AI, performance optimization, and security, it could very well be worth it.
There are a few different technologies that have been grafted onto the OS 400 and IBM i platform from the outside that are just architected differently from and run somewhat counter to the integrated nature of that platform, and all of them are involved, in one way or another, with managing logical partitions on the Power Systems platform and all of them make IBM i shops cranky.They are, in no certain order: the PowerVM hypervisor, the Hardware Management Console (HMC), the Virtual I O Server (VIOS), the PowerVC variant of OpenStack that is native to Power Systems, and external disk arrays, usually of the Storwize V5000 or V7000 SAN variety but sometimes the DS8000 SAN series. In one way or another, once customers get to a certain size and complexity when it comes to logical partitions on their IBM i machines, they have to wrestle with these things on anywhere from an occasional to a daily basis. And it is a lot.

More than a third of such countries had overlapping forms of malnutrition (45 of 123 countries in the 1990s, and 48 of 126 countries in the 2010s), particularly in sub Saharan Africa, South Asia, and East Asia and the Pacific.Undernutrition and obesity can lead to effects across generations as both maternal undernutrition and obesity are associated with poor health in offspring. However, because of the speed of change in food systems, more people are being exposed to both forms of malnutrition at different points in their lifetimes. This phenomenon further increases harmful health effects.

I am an astrophysicist and am interested in a wide range of theoretical problems in astrophysics, from the formation of the very first galaxies to the gravitational interactions of black holes, stars and even planets. Black holes are intriguing systems, and supermassive black holes and the dense stellar environments that surround them represent one of the most extreme places in our universe.The supermassive black hole that lurks at the center of our galaxy, called Sgr A , has a mass of about 4 million times that of our Sun. A black hole is a place in space where gravity is so strong that neither particles or light can escape from it. Surrounding Sgr A is a dense cluster of stars. Precise measurements of the orbits of these stars allowed astronomers to confirm the existence of this supermassive black hole and to measure its mass. For more than 20 years, scientists have been monitoring the orbits of these stars around the supermassive black hole. Based on what we 've seen, my colleagues and I show that if there is a friend there, it might be a second black hole nearby that is at least 100,000 times the mass of the Sun.
