STUDY SHOWS THAT GLOBAL TOURISTS ARE EXPOSED TO A GREATER BURDEN OF MULTI DRUG-RESISTANT BACTERIA

Travelers can pick up the bacteria even during short visits and further spread the strains after returning home. International travellers are particularly vulnerable to virulent strains of drug-resistant bacteria – often picking up several different types during a trip through spending time in the company of other tourists, a new study has revealed. The global spread of intestinal multidrug resistant gram-negative (MDR-GN) bacteria poses a serious threat to human health worldwide, with MDR clones of E.coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae threatening more antibiotic resistant infections around the world. Researchers monitored a…

NASA’S WEBB TELESCOPE WILL BE THE WORLD’S PREMIER SPACE SCIENCE OBSERVATORY – HERE’S WHAT THOSE POWERFUL CAPABILITIES MEAN FOR ASTRONOMY

NASA’S WEBB TELESCOPE WILL BE THE WORLD’S PREMIER SPACE SCIENCE OBSERVATORY – HERE’S WHAT THOSE POWERFUL CAPABILITIES MEAN FOR ASTRONOMY

By SPACE TELESCOPE SCIENCE INSTITUTE FEBRUARY 25, 2021 This image from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope shows the heart of the globular star cluster Messier 92 (M92), one of the oldest and brightest in the Milky Way. The cluster packs roughly 330,000 stars tightly together, and they orbit the center of the galaxy en masse. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will observe M92, or a similar globular cluster, early in its mission to demonstrate its ability to distinguish the light of its individual stars in a densely packed environment. Webb’s high resolution and…

CHINA OUTSPENDS REST OF THE WORLD ON 5G INFRASTRUCTURE BY 2 IS TO 1 RATIO

CHINA OUTSPENDS REST OF THE WORLD ON 5G INFRASTRUCTURE BY 2 IS TO 1 RATIO

When Beijing sets its mind to building new infrastructure, there’s very little that can stop it. That’s the message coming from a top telecom official who was talking up China’s fast-growing 5G network at a major industry event taking place this week in Shanghai. The nation now has more than 718,000 base stations for the cutting-edge communications technology, covering all of its major cities, said Liu Liehong, a vice minister at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). The nation’s huge base station buildup means China is now home…

WHATSAPP,FACEBOOK,TWITTER,INSTAGRAM SIGNAL & TELEGRAM FACE PROBLEMS AS INDIA ANNOUNCES NEW SOCIAL MEDIA RULES.

WHATSAPP,FACEBOOK,TWITTER,INSTAGRAM SIGNAL & TELEGRAM FACE PROBLEMS AS INDIA ANNOUNCES NEW SOCIAL MEDIA RULES.

India’s new social media regulations want social media apps like WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram to identify the ‘first originator’. In cases where social media apps are being used to spread ‘mischief’, the government wants the ability to track down the instigators. Tracking the origin of messages may require apps offering privacy to break end-to-end encryption. To prevent the misuse of social media, the Union government on Thursday announced new rules that make it mandatory for platforms such as WhatsApp to aid the government in identifying the “originator” of certain messages containing unlawful…

ONLINE ART PROJECT TAKES AIM AT MILITARIZATION OF ROBOTICS OFFERING PEOPLE TO TAKE CONTROL OF A FUTURISTIC SORT OF WEAPON

ONLINE ART PROJECT TAKES AIM AT MILITARIZATION OF ROBOTICS OFFERING PEOPLE TO TAKE CONTROL OF A FUTURISTIC SORT OF WEAPON

An internet-enabled art installation that launched Wednesday offers a strange proposition: the chance to pilot a $75,000 four-legged robot named Spot that is armed with a paintball gun.  The robot may be familiar to people who have seen various viral videos of similar robots from Boston Dynamics that have offered a sometimes startling glimpse at leaps in robotics technology.  But they haven’t seen it like this.  “Obviously they’ve worked really hard in terms of their marketing team to kind of bridge this association of Spot the dog with cute internet…

Russia approves its third COVID-19 vaccine, CoviVac

Russia has already approved two COVID-19 vaccines, including the Sputnik V shot, developed by Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute, following a similar approach of granting approval before seeing any late-stage trial results. The preemptive approvals had raised concerns among some scientists in the West, but inoculations with those first two shots began on a mass scale in Russia only after trials were concluded and showed success. Sputnik V was approved in August and late-stage trials began in September. Mass vaccination was launched in December, after preliminary trial results showed the vaccine to…

India’s contact-tracing app Aarogya Setu,tops 100 million users in 41 days

As most countries across the globe scramble to build an app to trace the spread of coronavirus, India’s solution is growing at an unprecedented scale — despite being dogged by privacy concerns. New Delhi’s contact-tracing app, called Aarogya Setu, has reached 100 million users in 41 days since its release. A representative at think-tank NITI Aayog told TechCrunch that this 100 million figure represents unique users — and not just those who had merely downloaded the app. The app, available on Android  and iOS, allows people to self-assess whether they have caught the…
