ORLANDO, Fla. — While hundreds of thousands of people made their way to the Space Coast two weekends in a row for a shot to see the most powerful rocket to ever lift off from Earth, a couple of scrubs for NASA’s Artemis I mission left them disappointed. But for those who were making a weekend out of their efforts, there was at least one rocket that lit up the sky for those who hung around. SpaceX has continued its frenetic pace of Falcon 9 launches including a couple of Starlink missions that took flight: one right before midnight last weekend on Aug. 27, about 32 hours before NASA called off … Read More “While Artemis scrubs, SpaceX treats Space Coast to launches”

By Steve Holland WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (Reuters) -Democratic President Joe Biden on Monday assailed “MAGA Republicans” loyal to former President Donald Trump as he spent Labor Day working to ensure union workers provide strong turnout for Democratic candidates in the November elections. “We have a choice,” Biden told a union crowd in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. “Trump and the MAGA Republicans made their choice.

By Albert Breer Dallas signed Jason Peters with the hope he can help replace the injured Tyron Smith. Relying on a 40-year-old savior isn’t ideal, but it’s the best one available. Game week is here. We’re ready to roll … Jason Peters is a Cowboy, and his signing makes him one of just two 40-something non-specialists currently in the league (I think you can guess the other one, and 49ers P Andy Lee, for what it’s worth, is also on the wrong side of 40). Last year’s Super Bowl champion had a guy in that category: Andrew Whitworth at left tackle. None of this is an accident. The NFL’s got an issu… Read More “Cowboys’ Peters Signing Speaks to NFL’s Lineman Problem”

AI-supported app can tell from your voice whether you have Covid-19

Published by
DPA

Developers of a mobile phone app based on artificial intelligence (AI) say it can reliably identify whether you have Covid-19 from the sound of your voice. Researchers say this is possible because the virus usually hits the upper respiratory tract and vocal cords, which changes the sound of your voice. The AI was able to detect coronavirus infections with 89% accuracy, which is better than many of the lateral flow tests available, where accuracy varies widely depending on the brand, scientists said on Monday. Plus, lateral flow tests are even less reliable when it comes to detecting Covid-19 i… Read More “AI-supported app can tell from your voice whether you have Covid-19”

Euronews (English)

With the cost of living spiking across Europe, more and more holidaymakers are turning to camping instead of paying for hotels this summer. And one latest trend, which took off amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is garden camping, or “gamping”. For prices usually much cheaper than campsites, and for locations more private, secluded and closer to nature, greater numbers of tourists are paying to stay in someone’s garden or field. Most have spartan facilities: an outdoors toilet and a BBQ pit. Many are in a farmer’s field. They may lack the services of a traditional campsite, but gamping enthusiasts ar… Read More “Holidaymakers turned to ‘gamping’ this summer to beat down costs”
