Mulan postponed again New theatrical release date for the Disney remake [Update]

“Mulan” postponed again: New theatrical release date for the Disney remake [Update]

Bad news for Disney fans: For the launch of “Mulan” in July 2020, nothing. Disney has now moved the date to August 2020, because the cinema still can not open in the US and China.

Apparently, the major Hollywood studios have hoped that the Corona crisis is over in the summer of 2020, but now rethinking has begun. After studio Warner has already “Tenet” moved farther and farther to the rear (current German launch date: August 12, 2020), now the next blockbuster potential deviates even further back from:

“Mulan” has been moved to the United States on August 21, 2020th In Germany, “Mulan” will now start on 20 August 2020th It is the third shift of the film.

Even a “Mulan” start in August 2020, not chiseled in light of the current situation in stone, which seems by now clear. But basically the mice studio sticks to a theatrical release, such as the Disney bosses Alan Horn and Alan Bergman stressed again in a statement. That the Disney remake So instead, on the streaming service Disney + published, is on the current state continue to be excluded.

Summer blockbuster without

Really aschend this step does not come, for the same reasons, due to which “Tenet” has been moved, of course, also apply to “Mulan”. In the US, the corona numbers of cases have recently risen acutely again, especially in the key markets of New York and Los Angeles, but also in the rest of the country, which is why no one can say exactly when the cinema can open profitable again.

In the case of “Mulan” is exacerbated by the cinemas have not yet re-opened in large numbers in the extremely important Chinese market and even here no country seems to be in sight.

Rumors of a planned shift from “Mulan” already existed in the past week to hear again and again, also it also meant that Disney will reluctantly bring its 200 million US dollars expensive remake the very first major title after the corona crisis in theaters – as a test run so to speak.

Although now start in Germany the first time in new films, such as “Unhinged – Out of Control” with Russell Crowe, “which starts with us on 16 July 2020 but these are all to smaller or at most medium-sized projects on primewire.

YouTube provides a new feature you’ve been waiting for a long time

In the site each day, you can find a lot of interesting footage. The problem, however, is their length, and yet no one wants to waste time looking for key information. Now it will be much better.

YouTube introduces a new feature, namely chapters top sites. It’s a hit. It will appeal to almost all users, because most of the time on the site is lost in search of the quintessential watching the video. Even more important is that after they are able to last and more than a half hour. With chapters on the timeline, now quickly we move to the proper torque and save time on the watch more movies.

The new feature will appear on both the desktop and mobile devices. Chapters first appeared in April this year, but they were only available to the few users who tested this service. The experiments were successful, so YouTube has decided to implement it throughout the world for all users.

We are very pleased that the giants increasingly listen to the needs of its users and take into account their valuable suggestions. Service in recent years has undergone a huge makeover and is very functional. Despite this, however, you can still do a lot to him even more under the nick of users. Even more important it is that more and more people are watching YouTube on mobile devices and the use of mobile Internet.

Chapters will be created by content creators, and not, as previously thought, by specialized artificial intelligence algorithms. Service would not lead to a situation in which will be marked inappropriate moments. In terms of the creators they remain so as deploying them and that means those moments, the better we watched their productions. Hopefully, that will help us life, although certainly they will also depend on this, but we viewed all the material.

Scientists have finally explained the great mystery of the famous Tunguska disaster

Russian scientists have analyzed a lot of data on this incident and conducted its own investigation into the matter. Their work shows that the explanation of this puzzle is more obvious than we hitherto thought.

On the morning of 30 June 1908 at 7:17 on the Siberian Tunguska River Podkamienna a huge explosion. She had the strength of approx. 50 megatons, roughly as much as the largest thermonuclear bomb detonated by a man. This can be compared with as many as 185 bombs dumps Hiroszimę.Eksplozja knocked on 80 million trees in the taiga, on the surface of 2,000 km sq., On a much larger area sparked fires. The shock wave circled the Earth twice. Even the next day after the crash at 22:00, among others, could read a book in France, using the unusual aurora lights hovering over the horizon.

In London there was an earthquake, and Russia accused the Japanese of starting a war. What exploded 112 years ago? One hypothesis is that it was a comet, composed mainly of dirty ice that does not hit the Earth, only touched the atmosphere and flew away. The move provoked an unimaginable shock wave, however, the effects of which can still be seen on old photographs from Siberia. The researchers explain that observed in Europe “white nights” could be due to scattering of sunlight on her braid.

This riddle suggests a new study conducted by researchers from the Institute of Physical. P. N. Lebedev in Moscow and the Siberian Federal University. They exclude the possibility of an asteroid hitting the Earth built of iron or stone, because it would cause much greater damage, may perhaps even global. It not without significance here is the fact that today not discovered fragments of meteorites, which can be confirmation of this theory.

Scientists are almost certain that we are dealing with the transition by the Earth’s atmosphere of a small comet built from ice or iron asteroid. Its impact on the atmosphere vaporizing part of the material of the core and wherein the shock waves caused, and the remaining fragments further flown into the pit space. Therefore, they can not be found on the Earth’s surface.

The researchers calculated that the space rock had a diameter of 100 to 200 meters and passed through the Earth’s atmosphere at a minimum altitude of 10-15 kilometers at a speed of approx MOBILETECH. 20 kilometers per second. The property was originally the weight of approx. Three million tons, but after hitting the Earth’s atmosphere had lost half the weight. This fact, however, did not affect the trajectory of his flight, which he continued.

According to Don Yeomans of NASA’s meteorite similar to the 112 years before it happens once every 300 years, so sooner or later awaits us replay of Tunguska. The problem is that no one knows where it might happen. World space agencies formed so more and more advanced technologies that will enable us to detect even the smaller space rocks that threaten our planet. Perhaps faster to detect them ever make in advance to prepare for such events, so we do not limit the damage caused by.

Does Poland have had the peak of a pandemic? Recent data on the coronavirus

The Financial Times has just published a special live updated charts within a pandemic coronavirus, where you can check and compare the situation in their own country with others.

Cases of disease and death grew around the world for weeks, but now many European and Asian countries believe that the peak incidence behind them, systematically removing previously imposed restrictions, which already led to a serious economic crisis in the world. You can not hide, however, that tracking further cases on the basis of data provided by the individual countries is difficult, especially if we compare them with others, so increasing numbers generated special charts, like the one just presented by the Financial Times. They are interactive, so allow you to comfortably explore and compare the information available so far on a global scale, gaining wider perspective.

It is worth noted, however, that estimate the scale of the pandemic on the basis of detected cases CoVID-19 can strongly pass the reality, mainly because it is closely related to the number of tests performed, so the higher the number the general could mean just a lot more of the tests. Definitely better suited for this purpose deaths, although here there are differences in the classification of causes of death and, in some countries, deaths from CoVID-19 is considered only in the hospital. Either way, both values ​​were on the chart, but you should be aware of their limitations – served figures are an average of 7 days to be able to take account of possible administrative changes.

Interestingly, in the case of certain parts we can see the expanded data on mortality, ie. The difference between showing all deaths during a pandemic and the historical average. The inventors of this solution was decided to use a logarithmic scale, i.e., one in which the measured value of the physical quantity is converted by a logarithm – the same distance on the scale represents the division / multiplication with the same value, instead of adding / subtracting the same value as the linear scale . That’s because it is better suited to providing such data as the spread of the virus, because it allows you to compare the state of the epidemic in places where only it starts with these, where the number of cases is much higher, although they have very different overall number of cases.

And what with the number of inhabitants? Most often it is not a consideration in cases such as pandemics, because the viruses do not pay attention to the limits and have no major impact on the rate of spread. You can not hide, however, that the comparison of cases in countries strongly differing in the number of population is not the best idea, because it can be fooled if a wrong sense of security, or on the contrary – for example, 80,000 cases are completely different dimension in China or the United States than in Poland nettricks. Therefore, depending on the compared places, sometimes it’s better to look at the number of cases per million population, and sometimes the total number of cases.

In Singapore, one goes to jail for fake news about the coronavirus

During a pandemic coronavirus appeared on the network a lot of false information on it, and although in some countries it can be published with impunity, then the other must reckon with the consequences.

There’s no denying that the pandemic coronavirus caused quite a rash of speculation and false information, and one of the most famous is perhaps this which suggests that the SARS-CoV-2 corresponds to the network infrastructure 5G, which contributed to the arson masts mobile networks in different countries, including in Poland. It should be noted, however, that most people wreaking such fake news does not have to fear the consequences other than deleting posts or social media accounts and YouTube, unless you live in Singapore, because there definitely other rules prevail.

He found out about this even 40-year-old taxi driver Kenneth Lai Yong Hui, who published the private facebook group numbering 7500 members post with false information about the closure of grocery stores because Covid-19, urging the way to do inventory. And although quickly removed his post, literally after 15 minutes, the prosecutor remained adamant and requested a prison sentence to deter others from similar practices. Especially that in Singapore during the 4-month fight against coronavirus were several panic attacks, so justice is not very kind to the people causing them due to false information.

– Psychological battle for calming fear and hysteria is as important as the fight against the spread of Covid-19 – says the prosecutor Deborah Lee, who took care of the matter The Ranking Online. Thus, the ruling four months imprisonment, which is still quite mild, because Singapore’s laws provide for spreading misinformation maximum penalty of USD 7,000 or imprisonment up to three years, or both. What it all by yourself interested? Kenneth Lai Yong Hui defended himself, but unfortunately did not manage to get a comment from him after the judgment, for we know that his case is … the result of denunciation.

Police records indicate in fact that on April 20 filed a complaint against the post man who suggested that due to the pandemic coronavirus grocery stores, cafes and supermarkets will be open only for 2 days a week, so you better make stocks for the coming month. What did he get that way? Perhaps more courses your taxi, but alone probably treated quite seriously as a whole stupid joke, so quickly that the situation had become very serious. It was to be expected, however, because some time ago the man who broke quarantine to buy bread cakes, he had to pay a $ 1,000 penalty, and another seat breaching the order at home because he wanted soup, went to prison for 6 weeks.

The largest radio telescope in the world are ready to search for alien civilizations

In China carried out one of the biggest projects in the history of mankind in the field of astronomy, which will allow us to look deeper into the universe and answer questions about its turbulent past.

Astronomers hope that this giant machine will also enable us to accelerate the process of finding alien civilizations. Construction of the world’s largest radio telescope called FAST (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope) ended in 2016, but only now it is fully ready to carry out the historic tasks.

Thanks to the world of science will be able to conduct observations of the sky with unprecedented accuracy and range up to 3 times greater than was previously possible smartuser. Chinese radio telescope consists of up to 4450 triangular elements, each with a side length of 11 meters. So you can imagine what it will be giant Realize that the canopy will be 500 meters in diameter.

With these parameters, FAST it is currently the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope on. For comparison, the second largest telescope Arecibo bowl has a diameter of only 305 meters away. The object, which is worth over $ 100 million, was established in the mountains, in the province of Guizhou, away from all sorts of cities, which could disrupt the measurements. Therefore, it is believed to be inaccessible unprecedented opportunities for astronomical observations.

Chinese FAST, within the 3-year tests, specialized in detecting pulsars, which is highly zmagnetyzowanych, rotating neutron stars that emit a beam of electromagnetic radiation. FAST recently discovered several dozens of signals coming from the same place, and in a very short time.

It seems that this giant is made for this type of projects. Astronomers therefore intend to use it from September this year to detect hundreds or even thousands of new FRB and other mysterious signals. It is estimated that every second of the Earth there is a lot of such impulses, but we are not able to detect them. Now he has to change for the better. The entire project will last nearly a decade, but it has resulted in the detection of the existence of alien civilizations, and even the possibility of contact with them. Fingers crossed for the success of the whole project.

Private mode in Google Chrome not so private? The lawsuit by

The American giant has to deal with a lawsuit for $ 5 billion in connection with the violation of privacy of millions of users by tracking data from the browser’s private mode.

If you use regularly Incognito mode of Google Chrome, then you will be interested in the information that it is not so private as you might think. As it turns out, belongs to the Alphabet Inc. The company collects data about our activity using Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other applications and plug-ins, including smartfonowych applications, regardless of whether users click on the ad supported by Google. This helps Google know our friends, interest, food preferences, purchasing habits, and even the most intimate and potentially embarrassing online search webtricks.

How, then, can be read in the lawsuit, it’s time to end the practice of allowing Google to collect unauthorized data on every American with a computer or smartphone. Except that the claimant may have a problem here, because as the Advocate Google Jose Castaneda, the company has repeated many times that “even when we open a new incognito tab, pages, and so may be able to collect information on our activities in the network.” And he has a lot of reasons, because when you open a new Incognito tab welcomes us with the following window:

In short, private modes help us hide our search before other persons having access to your computer or the same network, without retaining even search history, but as long repeated cybersecurity specialists, we are not protected from the suppliers of these services. These have long been suspected of creating user profiles based on combined data from both the classical search, and private. The lawsuit, however, are determined, because I speak on behalf of millions of Google users, who from June 1, 2016 years using the private mode. Hence, the request for compensation of at least $ 5,000 for each user whose privacy violated. It is difficult to predict how the matter will end, but we will look at it with interest.

Your smartphone can help build global radiation detector

If you want to use their mobile devices for more than just sending messages, now there’s a great opportunity. Take part in a global project of CREDO and help uncover the secrets of the cosmos.

Some time ago I created a very interesting idea for the research space and place in the fascinating phenomena using a detector worldwide. For this purpose, the power and the benefits flowing from smartphones and a special application called CREDO Detector (see here). This refers to the program Cosmic Ray Observatory Extremely Distributed (CREDO), which was attended so far thousands of Astronomy fans from 20 countries.

It transforms smartphones spread across the world in a single device with a unique research capabilities of detection. After months of testing, the Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences organized a conference at which scientists presented the first results of the project. The program meets the hopes, so now begin testing target.

“CREDO Detector application is developed in the framework of the international initiative launched and coordinated by researchers from the IFJ. Supervision of maintenance and expansion of application exercises Cracow University of Technology, and for the collection and processing of data corresponds Cyfronet Academic Computer Center of the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow. The project is co-financed by the governments of Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak Visegrad Grants through the program in the framework of the International Visegrad Fund (IVF), “- said in a statement Sciences.

Carrying out research using smartphones rely on recording and comparing the time of particle detection. In the scientific world it accepted that striking the Earth high-energy particles come to us by chance and as uniformly from all directions. Interestingly, in 1983 the network of detectors detected in Canada in a short time, 32 cases of the so-called. EASs weather. There is a cascade of secondary particles generated by high-energy cosmic rays interacting with the Earth’s atmosphere.

We are looking for such anomalies, scientists now under the CREDO using smart phones and dedicated application. Astronomers believe that it will enable us to not only collect a lot of valuable information about these phenomena, but also about the properties of dark matter, essentially quantum gravity and the structure of space-time itself.

Most importantly, the creators of the project indicate that the software CREDO project, including application CREDO Detector, appeared on the MIT license, which means that it is and it will be developed and used in many other groundbreaking research projects, school, and even commercial gamesartmovies.

Here comes the new generation of OLED displays, which arise from human hair …

It seems that biotechnology includes a whole new level, and the latest one is very surprising, because it speaks of recycling cropped hair, which are collected in hair salons tech smart.

Part of human hair from salons goes to specific organizations that deal with the creation of these wigs for children and adults after cancer therapies, but they must meet fairly stringent conditions, and to be of sufficient length, so most come from women. As for the men, so that the majority of clipped curls simply lands in the garbage, which is why scientists from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) decided to do something useful with them, and more specifically OLED displays for electronic devices.

Hair is because a good source of carbon and nitrogen, which is useful when creating the light-emitting molecules. These must first be prepared and burned at 240 ° C, which allows to obtain a material as a result of which the carbon and nitrogen are already embedded. Assembly of the Queensland University of Technology, then converts it into carbon nanokropki a diameter of less than 10 nanometers, they are distributed in the polymer, where they combine with structures called by researchers nanowyspami – that is, they can be used as the active layer in OLED devices.

When we bring them low-voltage current, they nanokropki begin to glow blue, and although it is not very bright illumination, it should be sufficient for small electronic devices, eg. The wearable category as bands Fitness and smart watches. – derived from human hair and organic carbon based on nanokropkach light emitting devices may be used in some internal applications, such as intelligent packaging. They can also be used wherever there is a need of small light sources, such as marks or smart bands, as well as medical devices, because they are made from non-toxic materials – says author of the study, Prashant Sonar. What’s more, the team stresses that in the future it will be possible to create such panels also extracted from animal hair salons or sheep’s wool, which fits perfectly with the idea of ​​sustainable development.

Gasoline from the air? Here you are. BMW invests in unique startup

BMW announced today that it is investing in the brand Prometheus Fuels, a startup that is working on technologies which allow to draw CO2 from the atmosphere and convert it into something more useful, eg. Petrol.

Prometheus Fuels took off in 2019 years thanks to the engineer of Yale, Rob McGinnis and since then working hard to process processability in terms of fuel, and more specifically on technology capture carbon dioxide from the air and converting it to gasoline, diesel and fuel for fighters that are compatible the existing vehicles today. All thanks to the proprietary methods of capture, synthesis fuel and separation technologies that allow for the creation of molecularly identical to the fuel is based on oil. What’s more, the company ensures that its procedure is carbon neutral and powered by 100% solar energy and wind power.

This means that it does not release any CO2 into the atmosphere, and prevents getting more natural fossil fuels, which are required for production of the classic fuel. Very important is the fact that unlike other sustainable fuels, does not require any modifications to the vehicle, so it can serve both the incumbent and the only aimed at him. Prometheus provides that wants to create a viable alternative to traditional fuels, which is why his product will be priced the same, then we expect a reduction in its prices, thereby strengthening its position in the market.

– Ability to create fuel directly from the air, at a cost similar to that of fossil fuels, is a real game changer. Statistical car stays on the road for more than eight years, which means that even if tomorrow the whole world will change to buy 100% of electricians, is only a decade from now internal combustion engines have disappeared from the roads. By creating a carbon neutral fuel from carbon dioxide obtained from the air, Prometheus Fuels affects the climate impact of modern engines and can drastically reduce it – says Greg Smithies of the Partner, BMW and Ventures.

Prometheus estimates that if all the fuel produced from oil and gas to replace such carbon neutral, every year we can expect the reduction in CO2 emissions of 10 gigatons, or about 25% of total global emissions. No wonder that BMW is interested in this matter, which could bring huge environmental benefits and on the occasion of branding for the company. For now, the company decided to subsidize Prometheus Fuels amount of $ 12.5 million, which, according to startup will significantly accelerate efforts to introduce this exceptional fuel on the market – may be residents of California will enjoy it later this year and next is expected to enter the international market link network club.
