Tesla has decimated its solar business from installation peaks of years past and its market share lead has long been surrendered to Sunrun and others. In December, it claimed it would install 1,000 building integrated solar roofs per week a figure it has not come close to achieving in six months. Is this any way to run a solar business?Image: Tesla
Quantum computing refers to the use of quantum mechanical phenomena (superposition and entanglement) to perform computation. The quantum volume is a measurement that takes into account the number of quantum bits (or qubits) of a machine as well as their connectivity and error rates.Tony Uttley, the President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions, said, What makes our quantum computers so powerful is having the highest quality qubits, with the lowest error rates. This is a combination of using identical, fully connected qubits and precision control.
;What makes our quantum computers so powerful is having the highest quality qubits, with the lowest error rates. This is a combination of using identical, fully connected qubits and precision control,; said Tony Uttley, president of Honeywell Quantum Solutions.The core of the Honeywell system is an ultra high vacuum chamber, which is a stainless steel sphere, about the size of a basketball. It has portals to allow in laser light, and from which the air has been pumped out such that it contains a vacuum of five times less particles than outer space. The chamber is cryogenically cooled to the temperature slightly above absolute zero ( 262.7 C).
The story is narrated by John McEnroe with Andy Samberg substituting for one episode. The series starts with introducing Devi Vishwakamur as paralyzed in a wheelchair, a daughter who just lost her father due to a heart attack at her school concert performance. She has a widowed mother, Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan), and a beautiful cousin named Kamala (Richa Moorjani) who is studying at CalTech while waiting on her arranged marriage (while also dating Steve at the same time). Throughout the series, Devi s relationship with her mother has been great but sometimes strained and there are flashbacks in the episodes that show that their relationship is at the lowest but counseling and support from both ends made them realize the value of their mother daughter bond. Meanwhile, Devi has plans with her two best friends Fabiola and Eleanor (Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young) to make their Sophomore year better than Freshman year which includes changing their styles and getting boyfriends. Throughout the series, these two best friends had problems in their own lives, including one friend coming out to her family that she is gay and one who finds out that her mother, who abandoned her to work on a cruise ship (or so she claimed), is actually working at a Mexican restaurant. These struggles became oblivious to Devi since she was dealing with her own issues and grieving from her father s death. As I watched Never Have I Ever, Devi was seemingly in a love triangle with Ben Gross and Paxton Hall Yoshida. Ben (Jaren Lewison) is her nemesis in academic competition and Paxton Hall Yoshida, who is her crush, participates on the swim team. Devi lied to her friends and peers by saying that she had sexual intercourse with Paxton. The relationship between Devi and Ben is intense but towards the end of the season, Ben helps Devi realize that family is important, and helps gather friends to spread her father s ashes at the beach. The relationship between Devi and Paxton is on the other side of the spectrum, with Devi feeling extreme infatuation with Paxton, unbeknownst to him. Towards the end of the season, the two very different people become friends and Paxton s adopted sister, Rebecca, urges him to make a decision regarding his feelings for Devi. Did Devi make amends with her mother and cousin and go to the beach to spread her father s ashes? Did Devi end up being with Ben or Paxton or neither? What happened with Devi s two best friends, Fabiola and Eleanor? How did the situation with Kamada s potential suitor from India turn out? Did she continue her relationship with Steve? These questions will be answered from Netflix Never Have I Ever Season 1, out now
This iPhone SE (2020) review isn''t like what we'd write for any other modern day smartphone. The iPhone SE (2020) is so different from other phones in its price range, in terms of features and target audience, that it almost seems as though it should be in a different product category. If you have a budget of Rs. 45,000, there are plenty of Android smartphones that may be more logical to buy. Although it''s now the lowest priced current gen iPhone in Apple''s lineup, the iPhone SE (2020) is still hardly affordable by Indian standards. Think of it as a specialised tool for a specific purpose.As someone who has bought and used the budget minded iPhone 5c (Review), the original iPhone SE (Review) and the iPhone XR (Review) over the years, I have a particular interest in how this new entry level model feels to use and what it brings to the table. In this review, I'll tell you what exactly you'll get for your money, and whether the iPhone SE (2020) deserves to be considered.

Yossi Cohen, head of Israel ''s Mossad, has learned a very interesting lesson over the recent weeks: It is easier to ”steal ” the Iranian nuclear archives and transfer them to Israel than to procure medical ventilators and bring them to Israel ''s hospitals. Cohen, who orchestrated in 2018 the unbelievable operation in which Mossad agents went off with the Iranian files under the noses of the regime in Tehran, now heads the unprecedented effort to bring to Israel ventilators, medical equipment and more in the war against the coronavirus. Cohen now heads a secret undercover operations room that was created in the Sheba hospital. Hundreds of his people are combing every corner of the globe for vital equipment and technology. They don ''t have a limit on their budget, and the order they received was to do everything and anything to guarantee that Israel will be able to cope with the virus under optimal conditions. Israel correctly responded to the coronavirus early in the game. The initial decisions to close Israel ''s airspace and limit entrance to people from China and other places were made just in time. This gave the country some breathing space before the virus actually erupted. But almost nothing was done with regard to anti coronavirus equipment until the virus inhabited the country and began to spread. The Israeli health system was caught unprepared; it had been subject to ongoing budget cutbacks, as well as general neglect, in the last decade. The Israeli health system as a whole is viewed as successful and efficient. Israel has a National Health Insurance Law that provides free health coverage to all its citizens and a network of family and community clinics that are among the world ''s most developed. On the other hand, the numbers of nurses and intensive care beds per capita are among the lowest in the West. The rates of death from infection within the hospitals are increasing and viewed as one of the highest in the West. The coronavirus caught Israel with less than 2,000 ventilators and a chronic shortage of protective clothing, surgical masks, N95 masks, coronavirus test kits, special swabs and more. The Health Ministry ''s worst case scenario talks about a million coronavirus carriers in the month of May; this translates into about 10,000 patients in serious condition who will need ventilators. Netanyahu ''s nightmare is to see thousands of coronavirus patients die due to a lack of ventilators.The prime minister, who has an anxious temperament and often exaggerates threats and invents worst case scenarios, is afraid of Israel becoming the Mediterranean version of Italy where the health system collapsed in light of the plethora of people in serious condition. He knows that pictures of Israeli coronavirus sufferers dying due to a lack of ventilators would mark the end of his political career. That #39;s why it was inevitable that he appointed Cohen to the job of procuring the necessary equipment. The Mossad is Netanyahu ''s secret weapon mdash; it is very popular in the Israeli public. In addition, as opposed to the defense system and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) mdash; which are under Defense Minister Naftali Bennett mdash; the direct commander in chief of the Mossad is Netanyahu. This allows him to take public and political credit for the Mossad ''s success.
TwitterEmailPrintSave StoryFacebookTwitterEmailPrintSave StoryLatinos are poised to become the majority in Texas in a matter of years. Will they bring their power to bear in the 2020 election?Photographs by Bill McCullough for The New YorkerThe weekend before Super Tuesday, Manuel Ortiz, a student at the University of Texas at Austin, drove to Montopolis, a majority Latino neighborhood on the city s southeastern edge. He was joined by four other college students, all canvassers for the Texas Youth Power Alliance, an initiative that aims to register three hundred thousand new voters before November. Ivy, the group s field organizer, parked her aqua Honda in front of Nuestra Se ora de los Dolores, a Mission style Catholic church built in the fifties. She wore oversized glasses and spoke to the others in a sweetly commanding tone. Avoid dogs, she said. Don t go through No Trespassing signs, gated areas, or ones with, like, a gun sign. The shadow of the 2016 election, when Texas, reliably red, registered among the lowest voter turnouts of any state, loomed over the canvassers efforts. Ortiz, who was dressed in a light wash denim jacket adorned with pins of Selena, a raised fist, and a prickly pear was feeling restless but keen. As a canvasser, he has developed a sort of poised patience and has learned to listen without pressing. His cacti patterned bag was filled with dozens of voting guides en espa ol.Latinos, who make up nearly forty per cent of the state s twenty nine million people, have long had the lowest turnout of any demographic group in Texas. Within his family, Ortiz told me, he is the most dedicated voter. His older sister had called the day before to say that she had cast her ballot in the Democratic primary, but he had not yet convinced his parents to do so. My mom got really uncomfortable in the last Senate election, he said. She felt overwhelmed with the system, those weird voting machines they can scare people. His parents are from San Luis Potos , a state in central Mexico known for its mining industry. They settled in Southern California in the eighties, and became eligible for amnesty under a sweeping immigration reform bill signed by Ronald Reagan in 1986. Before Ortiz was born, the family moved to Eula, a settlement in northern Texas, where residents have been voting Republican since the late sixties and Latinos remain a minority. The outcome of the 2016 election, Ortiz s first as a voter, hurt a lot to see, he told me. All of those people had heard his Donald Trump s hateful rhetoric and they were O.K. with it. But it also made me want to fight back. Early this year, he had mailed an absentee ballot back home. I want people from my area, which is generally a lot more conservative, to know that there is some Democratic presence there, he said.
