first_imgAre iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. The teardown also showed that the battery, Taptic Engine, and loudspeaker were smaller in size. Similarly, the earpiece, Face ID, and sensors in the upper assembly were shrunken down to fit the smaller iPhone 12 mini.While iPhone 12 comes with the same size camera module as iPhone 12 Pro but without the LiDAR sensor, iPhone 12 mini gets rid of the plastic spacer to make room for other components. Notably, iPhone 12 mini has the same two cameras as the iPhone 12.Coming to the battery, iFixit shared that the battery in iPhone 12 mini is 8.57Wh – larger than iPhone SE (2020)‘s 6.96Wh. iPhone 12 mini is limited to 12W when charging wirelessly compared to 15W on the other three models. However, all iPhone 12 models charge at the same 20W when charging with the cable.- Advertisement – iPhone 12 mini has made its way through iFixit’s teardown process, revealing mostly the same internal design as other iPhone 12 models with some key differences. It is known that the iPhone 12 series models use similar internal components, but some changes needed to be made with iPhone 12 mini due to its size. iFixit noted that antennas were more asymmetric on iPhone 12 mini when compared to the other iPhone 12 models. Additionally, the battery, Taptic Engine, and loudspeaker are smaller compared to iPhone 12.While the teardown process was pretty much the same for the iPhone 12 mini as the other iPhone 12 models, iFixit noted some differences that were made to accommodate the smaller size of the handset. iPhone 12 mini comes with a 5.4-inch display and measures 131.50×64.20×7.40mm. The teardown showed that the antennas were more asymmetrical as they could not be fitted into the “small-bodied phone” – as iFixit refers to it – in the same way as the bigger iPhone 12 models. The display for iPhone 12 mini opened to the left, just like iPhone 12, but is connected with two display cables instead of three.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more


first_imgOct 1, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesia’s health ministry announced today that a 21-year-old man who lived near Jakarta died of H5N1 avian influenza, according to media reports.Joko Suyanto, an official from Indonesia’s bird flu center, said the man, who lived in West Jakarta, died on Oct 28, Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported today. If the man’s case is confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO), he will become Indonesia’s 107th case-patient and its 86th death.The man got sick on Sep 18 and was admitted to the hospital on Sep 25, Suharda Ningrum, an official at the bird flu center, said in a report today from Xinhua News, China’s state news agency.Health officials are conducting an investigation in the area where the man lived to determine if he had a history of contact with birds, Xinhua reported.In January, government officials in Indonesia banned backyard poultry in the country’s capital after a string of five H5N1 deaths among residents of Jakarta and its suburbs, according to a previous CIDRAP News report.Indonesia has the world’s highest number of H5N1 cases and deaths. The WHO’s current global H5N1 count is 328 cases with 200 deaths.See also:Jan 19 CIDRAP News story “Asian countries struggle to contain avian flu”last_img read more


first_imgSep 4, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Researchers who conducted genetic analyses of hundreds of influenza viruses collected during the 2006-07 flu season found that many different variants circulated in the US at the same time, suggesting that the way each year’s epidemic spreads is more complicated than previously suspected. Different clades circulated togetherAs for geographic distribution of the viruses, the authors found more than one clade of H1N1 in every locality where more than one viral sample was obtained. Six different H1N1 clades were found in Houston, the most heavily sampled area, and three H1N1 clades circulated in Los Angeles, Denver, and New York City, as well as in smaller cities such as Tullahoma, Tenn., and Aberdeen, Miss. Similarly, the two H3N2 clades were geographically widespread. Amid all the circulating strains, the authors detected no clear signal of the pathway the viruses traced across the country. See also: Isolates gathered in 21 statesThe researchers analyzed viruses collected as part of a larger surveillance effort by Surveillance Data Inc., involving 56 physicians from 21 states. The physicians took samples from patients at least 1 year old who had fever and upper respiratory symptoms. A rapid test was used to identify influenza A or B, and positive samples were sent to a reference laboratory for subtyping. Genetic sequencing was handled by the J. Craig Venter Institute in Rockville, Md. Over the course of the season, a total of eight clades of H1N1 and H3N2 circulated in Houston, seven in New York City, six in Los Angeles, and five each in Denver, Cincinnati, and Hopkinsville, Ky. In some cases, several clades of both subtypes circulated in the same localities at the same time. For example, at least two clades of each subtype circulated late in the season in Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles. They identified eight different clades of H1N1 viruses, designated A through H. Clade A was dominant, accounting for 175 of the 284 isolates, or 62%, and was found in 24 of 30 localities. They also observe that too few influenza genetic sequences were available from the rest of the world to permit any conclusions about the geographic origins of the viruses introduced into the United States. “Overall, the co-circulation of multiple viral clades during the 2006-2007 epidemic season revealed patterns of spatial spread that are far more complex than observed previously, and suggests a major role for both migration and reassortment in shaping the epidemiological dynamics of human influenza A virus,” the report states. It says the findings indicate that several viral strains were introduced separately into the country. In analyzing the 69 H3N2 viruses, the authors determined that 60 (87%) fell into one clade, designated “a.” All the clade a isolates had the S31N mutation conferring adamantine resistance. Five other isolates were grouped in a second clade, called “b,” which lacked the resistance mutation, a finding the authors call surprising. The other four isolates all represented distinct strains. Among other things, the authors found that clades of the same subtype (H1N1 or H3N2) exchanged genetic material through reassortment in a number of instances. In one case, this gave rise to an H3N2 variant that was sensitive to the antiviral drugs amantadine and rimantadine, unlike most H3N2 strains in recent years. While concluding that influenza viruses are introduced multiple times during each season, the authors say they can’t exclude the possibility that one co-infected person introduced more than one viral clade into the country in the 2006-07 season. In addition, they write that the evolutionary dynamics of the season may have been unusually complex, particularly since it was not dominated by H3N2 viruses, which tend to spread faster than H1N1 strains. “Repeating this sampling effort during an A/H3N2-dominated influenza season could yield a stronger spatial pattern,” they state. Jan 14, 2006, CIDRAP News story “CDC: Resistance makes 2 older flu drugs ineffective” The scientists, led by Martha I. Nelson of Pennsylvania State University as first author, found that several different clades, or lineages, of influenza A subtypes H1N1 and H3N2 circulated at the same time and even in the same localities, according to the report in PLoS Pathogens. By comparing the US H1N1 viruses with 48 “background” H1N1 isolates collected in both hemispheres between 2001 and 2006, the authors determined that clades A, B, C, D, and E were descendants of New Caledonia–like viruses that circulated from 2002 through 2005. Clade F was found to be a reassortant that combined gene segments from New Caledonia–like and Solomon Islands–like strains. The researchers also found that only one of their H1N1 isolates contained the “S31N” mutation in the M2 protein that signals resistance to adamantane drugs. Nelson MI, Edelman L, Spiro DJ, et al. Molecular epidemiology of A/H3N2 and AH1N1 influenza viruses during a single epidemic season in the United States. PLoS Pathog 2008;4(8) [Full text] The researchers determined that most of the genome of clade b isolates was “more closely related to the adamantane-resistant clade a than to older adamantane-sensitive clades.” This suggested that, instead of evolving directly form older adamantane-sensitive viruses, clade b re-acquired sensitivity by incorporating two genome segments from those viruses through reassortment. The 2006-07 flu season, unlike most other recent seasons, was dominated by H1N1 viruses. This was reflected in the distribution of viruses analyzed by the authors: 284 H1N1 and 69 H3N2 isolates. “Rather than a single viral lineage spreading across the US, multiple lineages of both A/H3N2 and A/H1N1 influenza virus were separately introduced and co-circulated, allowing for reassortment within subtypes and greatly complicating patterns of spatial-temporal spread,” the report states. “Given the extent of genetic diversity observed during this season, obtaining a strong signal for the spatial-temporal pattern of spread of multiple different lineages clearly would entail a large increase in sampling.”last_img read more


first_imgSep 23, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Two organizations recently reported winning US government contracts for research on drugs that could work against multiple bioterror-related diseases such as plague, tularemia, and anthrax.SRI International, a nonprofit research and development institute based in Menlo Park, Calif., said this week it was awarded a 3-year, $8.3 million contract by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), part of the Department of Defense (DoD), to develop new biodefense compounds.Advanced Life Sciences Holdings, Inc., based in Chicago, announced in August it had received a 2-year DTRA contract worth up to $3.8 million to further study cethromycin as a potential broad-spectrum medical countermeasure.The SRI contract is for preclinical research to develop drugs effective against a broad range of potential bioterror agents, including those that cause anthrax, plague, and tularemia, the institute said in a news release. It follows a $9.5 million contract that SRI received last year to identify already-licensed drugs that are effective against biological threats.Under the new contract, “SRI will optimize and develop compounds from its proprietary bis-indole drug platform for both prophylaxis and treatment of biological warfare agents,” the release states.Dr. Ling Jong of SRI’s Cancer Research Center said bis-indoles are based on compounds found in cruciferous vegetables, and the institute is preparing to launch clinical trials of one bis-indole compound for use in cancer prevention.”Through drug screening, SRI has identified new bis-indole analogues that have broad-spectrum antibiotic activity,” the SRI statement said.Advanced Life Sciences will use its DTRA funding to study the efficacy of cethromycin against category A and B biological warfare agents such as Francisella tularensis (the tularemia agent), Yersinia pestis (plague), and Burkholderia pseudomallei (melioidosis), according to a company news release.Cethromycin is an oral antibiotic in late-stage development for the treatment of respiratory tract infections, including community-acquired pneumonia, the company said. The drug is also being tested as a postexposure preventive treatment for inhalation anthrax.In a study completed in May 2007, cethromycin was 100% effective in protecting monkeys against a lethal dose of inhaled anthrax, whereas the standard anthrax drug, ciprofloxacin, was 90% effective, the statement said. The company said cethromycin has also been found to be very active against B pseudomallei.Under the contract, $1.8 million is available over 9 months to launch studies of the drug’s effectiveness against the three pathogens, and the remaining $2 million may be awarded over the ensuing 15 months to complete the work, the statement said.See also: Sep 22 SRI news releasehttp://www.sri.com/news/releases/092208.htmlAug 13 Advanced Life Sciences news releaselast_img read more


first_imgEverything is ready for the beginning of the construction of the “Interpretation and Educational Center Grpašćak” in the Telašćica Nature Park.The initial conference of this project, which is financed from EU funds, was held in the Rector’s Palace on Friday, with the aim of improving the system of visiting and educating the Telašćica Nature Park for the purpose of sustainable use of heritage nature.The project is implemented by the Telašćica Nature Park Public Institution and partners of the Municipality of Sali and the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Sali, and is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund within the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020. The total value of the Project is HRK 25.223.715,89, of which the European Union co-finances HRK 13.153.622,55. The Grpašćak Interpretation and Education Center project is the largest investment project of the Institution so far. “At the end of the project, in 2020, we will get the final product that will make the Park the heart of “green tourism” which will raise the level of quality of content, products and services and the use of new green technologies. ” said the director of the park Nikolina Baković, emphasizing the need to relieve Lake Mir from mass tourism.The purpose of the project is to preserve the natural and cultural landscape and cultural heritage of the Telašćica Nature Park. “The realization of the project will realize the full potential of the Park for the purpose of its preservation and promotion of natural and cultural heritage, but also the development of the area with an emphasis on the sustainable use of natural resources. From a broader perspective, the implementation of the project will enable the economic development of the local community, which will increase the standard of living, but also create an attractive area for living.”Said Minister of Environmental Protection and Energy Tomislav CoricThe future center will be built on the site of a former military complex, dating back to Austro-Hungary, on the highest part of Dugi otok, above the famous cliffs. Architecturally, it will look attractive, it will have a belvedere above the slopes, and inside the educational hall, which will tell the story of the cultural, historical and natural wealth of the Telašćica Nature Park using modern multimedia techniques. The center will open in 2020.Source: Zadarski.hrlast_img read more

first_imgIt is a two-day meeting organized by the European Commission in cooperation with the EDEN network and the Romanian Ministry of Tourism, which brought together about 50 participants from 12 European countries. Participants discussed the challenges and opportunities of destination development in the direction of sustainable tourism, the need to establish indicators and measure sustainability at the national level, but also at the level of the destinations themselves. The importance of using digital channels and social networks in the promotion of EDEN destinations, ie less developed and non-traditional tourist destinations based on the principles of sustainable tourism, was also discussed. The EDEN Network Association is supported by the European Commission and brings together winners and finalists of European destinations of excellence from all over Europe, and within the network competitions are held continuously among members. The EDEN network was launched in 2007 and is the most active professional network of non-traditional and lesser-known destinations for sustainable tourism in Europe. As for package prices for retirees, two packages are offered. One for 5 nights in the amount of HRK 1.326 per person and the other for two nights of HRK 331 per person per night. According to the data from the website of Terme Tuhelj, the award-winning EDEN program, ie a package for pensioners, offers a free stay for two children, obviously targeting grandchildren, accommodation in Hotel Well ****, half board, homemade dinner with a wide selection of Zagorje and national specialties. food and specially prepared meals at the front cooking, unlimited swimming in the pools of the Water Planet, swimming in the Termalija Relax in Terme Olimiam unlimited use of fitness, bathrobe or sauna in the room, animation WELL program (home ritual, water exercises with physiotherapist, programs for awakening vital energy, water fun at the pools, workshops in the children’s playroom…) etc… Web Terme tuheljcenter_img Among the awarded destinations is one Croatian destination – Terme Tuhelj, which won the award in the category “Best practices in creating an offer for the third age (silver generation)” for the Senior Challenge project.

first_img“We wanted to connect a physical product with a digital, ie mobile device, and we designed a digital souvenir that uses augmented reality and by scanning the souvenir shows basic information about the city and one landmark for which the city is famous.” Fertelmesh points out. You can check more about soy candles with motifs of our cities HERE. Very interesting handmade candles, but also an application that promotes our cities, is an excellent tourist product that could certainly be recognized by both foreign and domestic tourists. “We believe that this attention to detail is crucial in providing a unique and high quality product”, Points out Renata Fertelmeš from Lopoch and adds that they made souvenirs with motifs of cities as tourist souvenirs. As advantages of soy candles, they point out the fact that soy is a renewable plant source and that candles are 100 percent vegetable, not a petroleum by-product. Also, they are non-toxic or carcinogenic, produce 95 percent less smoke and soot than paraffin candles and do not cause allergies. They are safe for asthmatics and pets, but they also last as much as 50 percent longer than paraffin candles.center_img The small family business Lopoch from Kutina is engaged in the production of handmade soy candles. Only soy and fragrant oils are used in the making of candles and no dyes are added. With handmade soy candles, the real story is how they made Lopoch a novelty through integration with tourism. Namely, it is a mobile application with which it is possible to scan a candle with a motif of a certain city, after which information about that city is displayed on the device. As a novelty, it is certainly an element of augmented reality that provides various possibilities and various interpretations of this interesting and unexpected story. A candle with the motif of the city of Šibenik shows basic information about Šibenik and the Cathedral of St. Jacob through augmented reality. Currently on offer are Dubrovnik, Split, Šibenik, Pula and Zadar, and if there is interest, work will be done in other cities. last_img read more
