Salary cap could cut Sunderland out of Scott Fraser raceSunderland have been hoping to bring in free agents Luke Garbutt, Danny Graham and Scott Fraser – but that is looking ambitious after the introduction of the League One salary cap.The Northern Echo report: “All three players are also attracting interest from the Championship, and (manager, Phil) Parkinson was unable to push through a deal for any before the EFL vote. “As a result, he is already having to look elsewhere as the new salary restrictions mean he is having to work to a vastly-reduced budget when it comes to wage offerings.”Parkinson added: “We tried to get a couple of players in before Friday, but those deals didn’t go over the line. It was really the agents and the players’ decision on those ones. When you’re going for players that maybe have Championship interest as well, it can be difficult because you’re competing for those players.“We’ve had to change tack a little bit over the last couple of days, and reassess what we’re going to do. I’m still confident we’ll have a strong squad, but one or two players who maybe …

Medicine wasn’t John Franklin Enders’ first career choice.Or even his second.It is fortunate for vaccine science that he settled on the field. In 1954 Enders and two other scientists working in his lab were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their vaccine research. He would later develop the measles vaccine, and ultimately be remembered as the “Father of Modern Vaccines.”

Enders was born in 1897 in West Hartford to a prominent family. His grandfather, Thomas O. Enders, was a banker and then founder of Aetna Life Insurance Co. His father, John Ostrom Enders, was also a prominent Hartford banker and would be responsible for a series of mergers in 1927 that formed the Hartford National Bank and Trust Co. Among the family’s notable financial clients was Hartford resident and legendary writer Mark Twain, whose trademark white suits reportedly impressed young John Franklin Enders.Educated as a child at Noah Webster School in Hartford, Enders had an interest in biology from a young age but was drawn …

Did Instagram copy me? After congressional hearing, a startup founder wonders.

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Back in 2014, Andrew Cunningham thought he and some colleagues had a hit with a smartphone app to create short bursts of reversible video.These days, if Cunningham wants to use his old app, it might be easier to pull up Instagram. The Facebook-owned photo-sharing app has an almost identical feature called Boomerang, which people use to create videos of streams running backward or friends doing backflips in reverse.Cunningham has long suspected that Instagram copied Boomerang from his startup, which after all was based in Australia, home of the original boomerang hunting tool. His app, called RWND, didn’t last long after Boomerang came on the scene in 2015, a year after RWND.“You wake up one day and the magic that you’ve got has been baked into another product,” said Cunningham, who’s based in Melbourne.It was all ancient history in the fast-moving world of tech startups until last month. From the other side of the planet, Cunningham watched as members of a House antitrust subcommittee pressed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over his alleged swiping of ideas, confronting him with emails in which his employees discussed how “copying is faster than innovating.”Now Cunningham said he’s ready …

President Vladimir Putin says his own daughter has already received it, but testing is yet to be completed and experts are skeptical about how quickly the vaccine has been registered. While details about the research behind the vaccine are limited, here’s what we know so far.What do we know about the Russian vaccine?The vaccine was developed by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute, using funding from the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF). The vaccine is named Sputnik V — a reference to the 1957 Soviet Union satellite.Scientists conducted months of human trials but are yet to publish data and did not begin the crucial Phase 3 stage, which usually precedes approval, before the announcement on Tuesday. On Wednesday it was announced that a Phase 3 trial involving more than 2,000 people in Russia and several Middle Eastern and Latin American countries had begun. Typically this stage of trial involves testing on tens of thousands of people.Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), said Tuesday that the number of people the vaccine had been tested on so far was the equivalent of a Phase 1 trial, which typically involves a small group and studies the safety of the …

A Customizable Hybrid Powered Yacht Even Elon Musk Would Proudly Own

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

What you’re looking at is both solar and diesel, a hybrid as it’s known. And being structured as a hybrid, it’s able to bring a truly innovative trip. Dubbed the Iris Forty-Five for its length in meters, its design breaks away from tradition and offers us something new to set our gaze upon. I must warn you, though, she does come from a family with two older sisters, so don’t go picking on her just because of her size, ok? Even though she only has three decks, she can still carry her own weight. She is a luxury yacht after all. Her elliptical shape wasn’t chosen just to make her look different either, it has a purpose. This shape has also been chosen to allowing large open interiors unlike those of other vessels. The lack of any exterior supports due to the heavy use of glass, means her decks should run long and flat.
We don’t have any sort of info on the interior, how it may look or what materials are used in its composition, because like most other luxury super-yachts, this one too completely customizable. The client that requests for this vessel …

KEY FACTS

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.7%, nearly 200 points, at Wednesday’s open, while the S&P 500 rose 0.9% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite gained 1.5%.

President Trump announced late on Tuesday that the federal government will purchase 100 million doses of Moderna’s experimental coronavirus vaccine, which is currently in late-stage human trials.

The deal, worth $1.5 billion, follows similar agreements the government has made with other drug makers for potential coronavirus treatments, such as Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.

Moderna, which saw its stock jump around 3%, said that the deal also gives the federal government the option to purchase up to additional 400 million doses.

Shares of companies that would benefit from a vaccine and a reopening of the economy—including airlines, cruise stocks and retailers—jumped on the news Wednesday.

Tech stocks were also rebounding on Wednesday, after dragging the market lower in the previous session: Shares of Apple, Microsoft and Facebook were up by more than 1%.

How Much Does Jeff Bezos Make a Second?

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

There are several ways to calculate how much Bezos makes per second, per day, and for other timeframes. You could calculate what the billionaire earns per second using his annual income or change in net worth. 
Starting with the annual income, Bezos took home $1,681,840 in total compensation from Amazon in 2019, which included $81,840 in base income and $1,600,000 in other compensation. He made $140,153 a month, $35,038 a week, $5,005 a day, $208.56 an hour, $3.48 a minute, and $0.058 a second last year. Working with the increase in Bezos’s net worth, you can calculate what he makes per second this year. Bezos has added $67.4 billion to his net worth so far in 2020 as of Aug. 12 or over a span of roughly seven and a half months. He is making about $8.99 billion a month or $2.25 billion per week this year. Breaking the amount down more, Bezos is making about $321 million a day, $13.4 million an hour, $222,884 a minute, and $3,715 a second this year.
The largest single-day increase in Bezos’s net worth is $13 billion, which he achieved on July 20, 2020. He made $542 million per hour, $9.0 million per minute, and $150,463 per second that day.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Microsoft Corp on Wednesday said the Surface Duo, its dual-screen smartphone powered by Alphabet Inc’s Android operating system, will start at a price of $1,399 (approximately Rs. 1 lakh) and arrive in stores beginning September 10.The Surface Duo folds closed like a book. Unlike devices such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 that use special flexible glass to create a single display, the Duo has two traditional screens separated by a hinge but synchronized to work together.At a media briefing ahead of the Surface Duo announcement, Microsoft executives positioned the phone as a tool for getting work done with its productivity apps, similar to how many business users employ dual-monitor setups with PCs.In the company’s Teams chat app, for example, a video chat occupies one screen while the other screen displays chats. In Microsoft’s Outlook email app, clicking a link in the body of an email opens the link on the opposite screen, so the user can continue reading or responding to the email.”I’m not trying to reinvent the phone,” Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, told reporters. “But I do believe this is a better way to get things done.”The dual-screen setup also allows users …
