After 16 years under the leadership of Chancellor Angela Merkel, Germany is transitioning to a new government—one led by a coalition of three political parties. The new government comes into power with many expectations and pledges, and for the digital currency industry, it could spell four years of immense growth and adoption. Germany, which is Europe’s largest economy and the fourth largest globally, will be led for the next four years by the Olaf Scholz-led ‘traffic light coalition’ government. This government, which brings together three political parties, has pledged to revitalize the German economy, lagging behind as the rest of Europe recovers…

Risk appetite has shown a resiliency post-pandemic that seems almost unflappable…at least if you are looking at the top performing markets. A broader review of ‘sentiment’ through a variety of generally lower correlated assets seems to show a meaningful loss of traction in recent months from the global (non-US) equities, emerging market assets, carry trade and commodities with a speculative connection. First, it is important to define ‘risk trends’: I consider it the underlying appetite for either greater return or greater safety of funds for capital allocation regardless of region or asset type. That said, when traction on mature systemic…

Evaporation pools of the new state-owned lithium extraction complex, in the southern zone of the .. Uyuni Salt Flat, Bolivia.  The electric car revolution will stall in the West if supplies of crucial battery elements like lithium fail to keep up with the forecast huge increase in demand. This will drive battery prices higher, decimate profit margins, and the coveted $100 per kWh battery, which would have signaled the arrival of affordable green vehicles, will remain on the launch pad. “Western weaknesses in lithium-ion supply chains will slow electric vehicle adoption and demonstrate China’s dominance of the EV (electric vehicle) market,”…

It looks like XDA-Developers has uncovered references to these tablets as well in code for MIUI 12.5 system apps. The outlet discovered the Enuma, Elish, and Nabu code-names as well as screenshots demonstrating gesture navigation on tablets. XDA was also able to seemingly corroborate the Snapdragon 800-series power, saying two of the tablets (Enuma and Elish) could offer the SM8250 platform and the third tablet (Nabu) could be powered by the SM8150 platform.

Previous  Next Batteries made from an electrically conductive mixture the consistency of molasses could help solve a critical piece of the decarbonization puzzle. An interdisciplinary team from MIT has found that an electrochemical technology called a semisolid flow battery can be a cost-competitive form of energy storage and backup for variable renewable energy (VRE) sources such as wind and solar. The group’s research is described in a paper published in Joule. “The transition to clean energy requires energy storage systems of different durations for when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing,” says Emre Gençer, a research scientist with…

Here’s how to turn off automatic updates in Windows 10, temporarily or permanently Why would you want to know how to turn off automatic updates in Windows 10? Surely these updates are essential for keeping your system secure and stable and introducing the latest Windows features and improvements?

When Google unveiled the Pixel 5 alongside the Pixel 4a 5G at its Launch Night In event on September 30, I was perplexed. On paper and in pictures, the $699 Pixel 5 made little sense compared to the $499 Pixel 4a 5G, not to mention the Pixel 4 XL.  I struggled to understand why Google made a smaller phone with very similar specs for more money. I might have been a little hasty. After spending a few days testing the Pixel 5 alongside the Pixel 4a 5G, Google’s game plan is a whole lot clearer. I’m still not convinced Google…

Our car experts choose every product we feature. We may earn money from the links on this page. Say goodbye to the Toyota Land Cruiser, Hyundai Veloster, and Volkswagen Passat. Last year brought the end to more than 20 vehicles. Halfway into 2021, automakers have already announced nine models headed toward indefinite retirement for the 2022 model year. Some, like the Volvo V60 and V90 wagons, will see parts of themselves live on. And arguably the best version of Hyundai’s Veloster will continue. Others, like the Volkswagen Passat and Honda Clarity are getting booted to make room for more electrified…

Education Minister Fayval Williams has reasserted her support for blended classroom learning and has lobbied that administrators maintain that option in the new year, even as more schools reopen for face-to-face classes. Addressing a ceremony for the handover of 10 tablets donated by First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union Limited in Kingston on Tuesday, Williams reaffirmed that technology-based education would remain a permanent fixture in schools. The technologies used in the 20 months since schools were closed because of the coronavirus pandemic are drivers of modern societies, Williams told The Gleaner on Tuesday. “It will remain with us,” she remarked. “Despite…
