Will PubG be banned in India? Memes break internet as popular game comes under govt radar

The government’s decision to ban 47 clone apps of the previously banned Chinese apps and reports that 250 more Chinese apps, including PubG, are on the Centre’s radar has sent the gaming app fans into a state of dizziness. Many of them, until recently, were part of the meme fest that poked fun at TikTok ban in India.

But as reports about the possible PubG ban started creating round on social media, its fans resorted to their favourite coping mechanism: memes. Will there be a ban on PubG or not, it’s still a mystery but its fans are defiantly worried over the possibility of losing their presence and source of income from one of biggest gaming platforms in the world.

After seeing #pubgban is trending

TRACAB Gen5 Provides Demo of Semi-Automated Offside Technology Developments to the Football World

john rambo

MELVILLE, N.Y. — July 16, 2020 — ChyronHego’s TRACAB team in Sweden has achieved another important milestone in its latest developments towards a semi-automated offside technology, based upon the Emmy® Award-winning TRACAB Gen5 optical tracking system. At a June 22 video conference hosted by ChyronHego and attended by FIFA and its Working Group for Innovation Excellence, the TRACAB team presented a demonstration of powerful new capabilities in TRACAB OCT (Offside Calling Technology) (Story on FIFA Website). Exploiting its AI-driven ball tracking for automated ball pass detection, combined with limb tracking and skeletal modeling derived from video feeds, the technology is showing great promise to support referees in the future to make fast and highly accurate offside calling decisions.

FIFA has made semi-automated offside technology a top priority as it continues to develop Video Assistant Referee (VAR) capabilities at all levels of football. With this technology, FIFA aims to enhance VAR

Google will build a new internet cable under the sea in an attempt to speed up connections and meet demand.

The infrastructure will also allow the system to be more resilient, avoiding any possible problems caused by disruptions – such as damage from sharks.

It will also allow for extra security beyond what is currently available over the public internet, Google said.

The new cable will run between the US, the UK and Spain and is expected to be finished in 2022.

Once built, it will be one of the tech giant’s first new cables to connect the US and UK since 2003, aimed at increasing capacity and helping drive some of Google’s core services, such as video communication platform Meet, Gmail and Google Cloud.

It has been named after computer science pioneer Grace Hopper, best known for her work on one of the first

Vizgen to Launch Early Release Program for Proprietary Spatial Genomics Technology

john rambo

As infectious disease researchers continue to work on unraveling the many remaining mysteries of COVID-19, MERFISH serves as a powerful instrument in their toolbox for answering critical questions including what types of cells does SARS-CoV-2 infect, how are tissues damaged, and how does the body respond to the novel coronavirus.

“Vizgen’s MERFISH technology undoubtedly will emerge as the next-gen platform for high-resolution spatial biology,” said Dr. David R. Walt, Cofounder of Vizgen; Hansjörg Wyss Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering, Harvard Medical School; Professor of Pathology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Core Faculty, Wyss Institute for Bioinspired Engineering, Harvard University; HHMI Professor. “It enables comprehensive transcriptomics combined with proteomics and has both whole tissue and subcellular resolution. It checks all the boxes.”

The technology was developed in the laboratory of Dr. Xiaowei Zhuang, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator and David B. Arnold Professor of Science at Harvard

World-first research led by Monash University could hold the key to better monitoring and treatment of lung disease associated with cystic fibrosis (CF) – a condition thousands of people are diagnosed with each year.

Using X-ray velocimetry (XV), the multi-disciplinary collaboration of physicists, engineers, biomedical engineers and clinicians was able to measure the dynamics of airflow through the lungs during the course of a natural breathing cycle, and measures the presentations of CF lung disease.

The research team, led by Dr. Freda Werdiger from Monash University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, was able to pinpoint the exact locations of abnormal airflow within lungs

Connecticut launches $43.5M initiative to boost access to internet and technology as schools prepare for possibility of continued online learning

john rambo

As Connecticut school districts prepare for the possibility of reopening this fall with online and hybrid learning programs, Gov. Ned Lamont Tuesday announced a $43.5 million initiative to boost access to internet and technology for students and families in need.

“To me this is the Brown v. Board of Education of our generation,” Lamont said at a news conference in Waterbury, referencing the landmark case in which the Supreme Court ruled against racial segregation in public schools. “Separate but equal back in the ’50s is the digital divide of the 21st century.”

The state will will draw the money from its portion of the federal CARES Act, the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund. Twenty-two million will be used to purchase 50,000 laptops, $15 million will be used to improve home internet connectivity for 60,000 students and $4.5 million will go
