She did what many customers with a broken device do, and took the phone back to the manufacturer to repair. But Apple told her the device was unfixable, and offered to sell her a replacement for $299. Instead, she turned to Fullerton, an expert phone fixer and operations manager for two Boston based walk in repair shops. For less than $40, Fullerton was able to purchase two replacement chips for the phone s motherboard and a new screen, swap everything out, and get the device working again.Fullerton told that story to Massachusetts Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure last month during a public hearing over a digital right to repair bill that would make it easier for everyone to fix their electronic devices at home or by taking them to an independent shop. His story neatly makes a case for the right to repair movement, whose guiding principle is that if you buy it, you should be allowed to fix it.

Kaleb James Cole, 24, is a self avowed member of the Atomwaffen Division, which the Anti Defamation League (ADL) describes as a neo Nazi group whose members "train in preparation for an impending race war and promote the use of violence to reach their goal of 'uncompromising victory.'"Officials believed Cole posed a "significant danger in the near future" of carrying out violence by having firearms under his control.
It s an anthology, a respectable sounding word, and the episodes play like short stories, though even at 30 minutes each, much elaboration is necessary building out characters, adding dialogue and drama and comedy. Broadly speaking, they are peopled by creative types, like the mostly professional writers whose columns these are. They re well to do, or well enough to do. When I say that it is not only a letter to love but a location shot love letter to New York, you are correct in interpreting this to mean it is like a Woody Allen movie.The series, which began streaming Friday, was developed by John Carney, who directed Once and wrote and directed Sing Street and knows a thing or two about putting a lump in the throat of the slightly arty mass market. Its cast is starry yet interesting: Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, John Slattery, Dev Patel, Catherine Keener, Andrew Scott and Jane Alexander. It s a pro job, though at times it feels professional in a Madison Avenue kind of way, as if you are being sold something, rather than told a story. Most feel minor, even when the subject is major, perhaps because they re so faithful to spirit of the essays. I don t mean that as a criticism. And I did choke up a few times.

Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic degenerative condition associated with psoriasis. In the absence of proper and timely treatment, the disease may lead to irreversible joint damage. Although the exact causative factors remain unknown, research suggests that nearly 40% of cases are attributable to genetic factors. Psoriatic arthritis may be misdiagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis or gout. However, heightened consumer awareness, aided by multiple campaigns organized by private and public organizations, is likely to reduce the rates of misdiagnosis or incorrect treatment. In addition, high cost of treatment, and adverse effects of some drugs are expected to restrain the market growthThe Research Insights is one of the developing associations whose capability is in making a widespread research and reports an association wishes to have.

Key point: Much of our WWII history makes assumptions or simplifies what happened. For instance, horses were still widely used in addition to mechanized units. The Second World War remains an enduringly fascinating subject, but despite the large number of films, documentaries, books and even comics on the subject, our understanding of this catastrophic conflict, even seven decades on, remains heavily dependent on conventional wisdom, propaganda and an interpretation skewed by the information available. In my new book The War in the West: Germany Ascendant 1939 1941, first in a three volume history, I am challenging a number of long held assumptions about the war, many of which are based on truth by common knowledge, rather than through detailed and painstaking research.My Damascene moment came some years ago when I was being given a tour of the Small Arms Unit at the British Staff College at Shrivenham. I was glancing at a German MG42, known as a Spandau by the Allies. Of course, that was the best machine gun of the war, I commented, relaying what I d read in many books. Says who? Says who? retorted my guide and head of the unit, John Starling. In the next few minutes, he proceeded to deconstruct everything I thought I knew about this infamous weapon: that its phenomenal rate of fire caused massive problems of over heating, that it was widely inaccurate (for which having since fired one, I can now vouch), that is was incredibly expensive to manufacture, massively over engineered and lacked certain simple additions that would have made its handling so much easier. The men supporting this weapon not only had to carry vast amounts of ammunition to feed this thirsty beast, they also had to lumber around six spare barrels because of its readiness to over heat. And each barrel bore multiple inspection stamps. Which were, John told me, an utter waste of time in the middle of total war. Also From TNI: Donald Trump: The Worst President Ever? Also From TNI: Donald Trump: Best President Ever? Also From TNI: Why Japan Really Lost Pearl Harbor I was gobsmacked, but this visit led me down an entirely new line of research, and one that was equally revelatory. I began to realize that almost everything the Germans made was over engineered, from the tanks to gas mask cases to the field jacket of the lowly landser. Eventually, in the German military archives in Freiburg in the Black Forest, I found a memo from early December 1941, signed by Hitler, in which was the line, From now on, we have to stop making such complete and aesthetic weapons. In other words, up to that point, they had been consciously doing so. Needless to say, his instruction was not followed; those all metal, finely designed yet cumbersome and utterly pointless cylindrical gas mask cases were made right up to the end of the war, while still to come was the Panther tank, not to mention the Tiger, with its Porsche designed six speed hydraulically controlled semi automatic pre selector gear box, as complicated and sophisticated as it sounds and entirely unsuitable for front line combat or use by poorly trained young drivers. The transmission on a U.S. built Sherman tank was a robust four speed manual, simply made in vast numbers. America built 74,000 Sherman hulls and engines; Germany built just 1,347 Tigers. Studying such things in detail meant I was now looking at the operational level of war. Any conflict or business for that matter is understood to be conducted on three levels. The first is the strategic that is, the overall aims and ambitions. The second is the tactical: the coal face, the actual fighting, the pilot in his Spitfire or man in his tank. And the third is the operational the nuts and bolts, the logistics, economics and the supply of war. Almost every narrative history of the war ever published almost entirely concentrates on the strategic and tactical levels, but gives scant regard to the operational, and the result is a skewed version of events, in which German machine guns reign supreme and Tiger tanks always come out on top. Studying the operational level as well, however, provides a revelatory perspective. Suddenly it s not just about tactical flair, but about so much more. Britain, for example, decided to fight a highly mechanical and technological war. Steel not flesh was the mantra and that s why the British had a small army, yet still ensured it was 100 percent mechanized. They also developed a vast air force and built a staggering 132,500 aircraft during the war and that s 50,000 more than the Germans. Until the start of 1944, the priority for manpower in Britain was not the army or navy or even air force, but the Ministry of Aircraft Production. Well fed men and women were kept in the factories. Germany, on the other hand, was very under mechanized but had a vast army, which meant it was dependent on horse power and foot slogging infantrymen. As a result of so many German men at the front, their factories were manned by slaves and POWs, who were underfed and treated abominably, and whose production capacity was affected as a result. And if the ability to supply war was key, then in the war in the West, it was the Battle of the Atlantic that was the decisive theater. Yet Germany built a surface fleet before the war, which could never hope to rival Britain or France and in doing so neglected the U boat arm. Despite sinking substantial amounts of British supplies in 1940, it was still nothing like enough to even remotely force Britain to her knees. In truth, there were never enough U boats to more than dent the flow of shipping to Britain. In fact, out of 18,772 sailings in 1940, they sank just 127 ships, that is, 0.7 percent, and 1.4 percent in the entire war. Also From TNI: What Happens If North Korea Nuked Washington? Also From TNI: Iran s Military Could Hurt the U.S. in a War Suddenly, rather than appearing like David against Goliath and backs to the walls amateurs as is so often depicted, Britain emerges once again as a global super power in command of the largest trading empire the world has ever seen, while Germany, despite impressive victories on land early in the war appears to be woefully under resourced and flagrantly squandering what supplies it could call upon. What s more, after the initial glut of conquest booty, the occupied territories swiftly became a drain and burden that had to be manned and which proved a further drain on precious resources. The words Teutonic and efficiency usually go together; in the Second World War, nothing could have been farther from the truth. Image: Wikipedia.

The aftermath of a chemotherapy session can be as debilitating as the condition that it aims to manage: Cancer. A weakened immune system, loss of appetite and hair loss are among the most known side effects of this regime. Balding, or loss of hair is one of the most common culprits that chemotherapy brings along. However, a new research comes with a new ray of hope for people undergoing chemotherapy. Scientists have found a way to keep their hair loss under. According to this recent study, published in the Skin Therapy Letter, 65 per cent of people who receive chemotherapy experience hair fall, one of the factors that brings down the self esteem and confidence of patients. So, the new research is being considered as a huge achievement in terms of improving a cancer patient s life.Researchers at the University of Manchester s Centre for Dermatology Research have found the mechanism behind chemo drugs affecting hair and causing hair fall. It is commonly believed that hair lost due to chemo can be grown back post the treatment, however, this may not be true in every case. The drugs used in this treated option are so strong that they cause permanent hair loss in some patients whose body is not able to handle them.
The $13.7 million contract to Colorado company Advanced Space covers the development of Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE), a 12 unit cubesat that the agency could launch as soon as the end of 2020.The spacecraft will likely be the first spacecraft to use what s known as a near rectilinear halo orbit, an elliptical polar orbit around the moon whose closest point to the moon is over one pole and most distant point is over the other pole. NASA plans to use that orbit for the lunar Gateway, which will serve as a staging point for human landings near the south pole of the moon starting in 2024.
Ethereum's founders were enthusiastic when the idea of a cryptocurrency first appeared in 2009 with the invention of bitcoin. They followed the innovative concept led by Buterin of creating a second generation of blockchain that made it possible to develop software apps and create smart contracts on a decentralized network. The big breakthrough into global consciousness by Buterin and the other Ethereum founders came in 2017 with the media buzz surrounding the leap in digital currencies prices. Ethereum's digital currency, called ether, was first listed on the cryptocurrencies exchanges in August 2015 at an initial price of less than $3. The price skyrocketed 8,600% in 2017 and reached a peak unit price of $1,390 in January 2018. Last year, however, taught a painful lesson to digital currencies investors; over 80% of ether's value was wiped out in less than a year. Ether's price in early December 2018 was a mere $90, but has now rebounded to $175, after rising 27% since the beginning of this year.Buterin appeared unconcerned about the decline in Ethereum's value when we met him in the new offices of StarkWare Industries, a startup in which he invested. He is currently busy mainly in leading Ethereum's research for the Ethereum Foundation, a non profit organization managed from Switzerland responsible for promoting the platform. Next week, he will take part in several events connected with the sector in the framework of Blockchain Week in Tel Aviv. One of them is a conference by StarkWare, one of whose founders is Technion Prof. Eli Ben Sasson.
The Undertaker has been one of WWE #39;s greatest megastars and he is also arguably the best fear striker in the company #39;s history. The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark William Callaway, with an illustrious career, has entertained his fans for almost three decades. The #39;Deadman #39; holds the record for the most wins at Wrestlemania, which is WWE #39;s biggest event. In fact, he was undefeated at Wrestlemania for over two decades. The Undertaker held a 21 year winning streak at Mania which was halted by Brock Lesnar in 2014. He now makes special or part time appearances. Just like Undertaker, even Stone Cold Steve Austin is an extremely popular wrestler. In fact, Austin was a megastar as well as the company #39;s face during the #39;Attitude Era #39; i.e. during the mid and late 90s and early 2000s. Now, both the megastars from Texas have been given special gifts by Madison Square Garden officials.READ: Ken Shamrock reveals details of the famous chair shot from The Rock
