Or at least that’s what the corporate executives are telling us. How widely used these new services are is still up for debate. The American Public Transportation Association recently surveyed 4,500 people in seven cities. They found that while an overwhelming number use public transit like subways and buses — around 65 percent — far less were using bike-sharing (11 percent), car-sharing (12 percent), and ride-sharing (10 percent). … [Read more...] about Zipcar is launching bike-share programs on 15 college campuses
What's the PS5's release date and how much will it cost?Sony continues to stick to its holiday 2020 release, but we still don't know how much we'll have to shell out for it. The cost to manufacture one is reportedly $450, according to a Bloomberg report in mid-February.

Even so, Sony may still give the PS5 a lower price tag in order to compete with Microsoft and its upcoming Xbox Series X. One Canadian retailer reportedly priced the console at $559 in Canadian dollars, which would equate to approximately $410. … [Read more...] about Sony PS5: Price, release date, games, Xbox Series X comparison and everything else we know

This also can make maintaining code more straightforward. For monolithic applications, updating code can present a major burden because of the difficulty inherent in covering all dependencies. As Ophir Gross has noted, "Spaghetti code is full of checks to see what interface version is being used and to make sure that the right code is executed. It's often disorganized and usually results in higher maintenance efforts as changes in code affect functionality in areas that are challenging to predict during development stages." … [Read more...] about How to avoid turning microservices into distributed spaghetti code
"UVC has been used for years, it's not new," Indermeet Kohli, a physicist who studies photomedicine in dermatology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, told Live Science. UVC at a specific wavelength, 254 nanometers, has been successfully used to inactivate H1N1 influenza and other coronaviruses, such as severe acute respiratory virus (SARS-CoV) and Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV), she said. A study published June 26 to the preprint database medRxiv from Kohli's colleagues awaiting peer review now confirms that UVC also eliminates SARS-CoV-2. … [Read more...] about Does UV light kill the new coronavirus?
