During November, which was National Epilepsy Awareness Month, the Epilepsy Foundation revealed that some Twitter users mentioned the organization and its hashtags in tweets that featured flashing or strobing images. It s not clear how many people, if any, were affected by the attacks. While APNG files were not used in this case, Twitter has moved to make sure they aren t utilized this way in the future.
In a recent development regarding the use of animated PNG (APNG) files on Twitter, the social networking giant has announced that APNGs will no longer be supported on its platform. To further elaborate on the matter, APNGs reportedly don''t respect the autoplay settings and can be used by trolls to trigger seizures in people who have epilepsy. Additionally, posting animated PNGs in a tweet can cause performance issues for the app.According to a tweet by Twitter Accessibility, the company wants to create a safe environment for its users. And while APNGs are fun to use, they don''t respect the autoplay settings. Moreover, not just APNGs but any sort of imagery which is on a loop can become dangerous for people with sensitivity to motion and flashing imagery, including those with epilepsy.
The osteophonic helmet marked the first step for this remarkable technology breakthrough, when French manufacturing company ELNO began testing the ability to amplify sound waves between soldiers, minimising the need to speak loudly. Soldiers activated the system simply pushing a button on their rifle and when they move their vocal cords, the waves are captured and sent to the other helmets. Then, the inner ears of the receiver interpret vibrations as perfectly audible words, even dozens of metres apart, they can communicate via discreet whispers.
Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro are all set to launch in March next year, and leaks surrounding the phones have picked up pace. The phones are expected to sport exceptional cameras, and now TF securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo has said that the premium variant Huawei P40 Pro will support 10x optical zoom. He reportedly explains that Huawei will achieve this great feature by using two mirrors and a prism inside the camera of the Huawei P40 Pro. To recall, the Huawei P30 Pro came with a 5x zoom lens, and that''s because the camera integrated just a prism.Huawei Central and MacRumors have obtained the latest note from popular analyst Kuo, and this time he offered details on the Huawei P40 Pro instead. He said that the phone will feature a redesigned periscope telephoto lens to integrate a 10x optical zoom lens, a first in a smartphone. He also noted that more phones will get this technology next year, although he didn''t detail which phones will get it. Kuo says that the Huawei P40 Pro will integrate a newly designed 8 megapixel periscope telephoto lens with a large aperture of f 4.0. As mentioned, the phone will include both mirror and prism structures to achieve this extended field of view. Kuo also notes that the company will integrate 5X optical periscope lens in other smartphones like Huawei P40, high end Nova phones, high end Honor phones, and high end Mate phones.
The first question that'll pop into your mind is why did we pick an older OnePlus flagship instead of the latest one. The answer to that question is relatively simple; the OnePlus 7 Pro, for all practical purposes, is identical to its successor. It has the same 1440p 90Hz refresh rate panel. Yes, it is a bit pricer compared to the OnePlus 7T, and one of the reasons we picked the OnePlus 7 Pro is due to its popup front camera. The absence of a notch frees up a lot of screen real estate and gives it a cleaner look. Besides the minor difference in the telephoto lens, the OnePlus 7 Pro is arguably better value for money compared to the OnePlus 7T.

All over the world, far right ideologies have returned to the fore of public conversation with a terrible insistency. This resurgence can be linked to a troubling global rise in the sale of Nazi memorabilia, some of which has fetched huge prizes at auction: in January of this year, Hitler s bunker telephone sold for $243,000. Some houses, like Christie s and Sotheby s, have altogether banned the sale of Nazi items, but others persist, suggesting that some kind of industry wide intervention may be needed. On Monday, intervention came in the form of a Lebanese born Swiss real estate mogul named Abdallah Chatila, who told the Associated Press he had purchased Hitler s top hat, a silver plated edition of Mein Kampf and additional Nazi memorabilia at an auction in Munich last week with the intention of destroying them. Chatila, who said he paid $660,000 for the items in question, reportedly decided to make the purchase after reading about objections to the Hermann Historica auction written by Jewish groups. Instead of destroying the memorabilia as he had originally intended, he instead has decided to send the items directly to the Keren Hayesod United Israel Appeal group. I wanted to make sure that these pieces wouldn t fall into bad hands, to the wrong side of the story, so I decided to buy them, Chatila told the AP. I have no direct interest whatsoever, I just thought it was the right thing to do.

Needless to mention, given the tremendous pre release buzz, trade experts are already calling it a box office bonanza.

We got in touch with film trade analyst Girish Johar to know his views. ”I wish it collects that much but when you have a slew of releases lined up in the following weeks, the audience gets a lot of options and hence, gets divided. If the content matches up to the expectations, it does have a chance but to be honest, expecting it to cross Baahubali 2 is a little far fetched, ” Girish told us over the telephone.
