The TCL 8 Series 75Q825 debuted late last year to glowing praise -- not just from CNET's David Katzmaier, but from reviewers far and wide. Ironically, TCL has long been known as a budget brand, but there was nothing low-end about this model -- especially the $2,600 price tag. Just a few days ago, the 75Q825 was back on sale for $1,800, tying its all-time low. Today, however, and while supplies last, you can get the TCL 8 Series 75-inch 4K Roku TV for $1,500 , a new low by a pretty hefty margin. It's still expensive compared with some other 75-inch TVs, but it's also one of the best TVs you can buy, period. See it at Best Buy That's according to Katzmaier, whose TCL 8 Series review you'll want to read straight away. A tidbit: "The 8-Series is a beast.

The market landscape for low-code development technologies will remain on a strong trajectory for 2021, according to the latest figures from Gartner. The research firm's low-code market forecast suggests that a surge in remote development during the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to prop up the space overall, as more companies turn to low-code platforms to support innovation and digital transformation agendas.

By Rachel Cernansky Feb. 11, 2021 , 1:18 PM After returning home from college to northwest Cameroon in 2004, Tabi Joda felt a sense of profound loss.

Joda, a business consultant, got to work, calling on what he’d learned in school and from local knowledge passed down over generations. He collected seeds, started a tree nursery, and launched an agroforestry initiative that enlisted local people in planting trees. They chose species that provided food and timber, supported livelihoods, and helped wildlife thrive. The effort soon spread to nearby communities. And Joda ultimately became a vocal advocate for an even bigger dream: the Great Green Wall, which aims to transform the lives of some 100 million people by planting a mosaic of trees, shrubs, and grasses along a corridor stretching some 8000 … [Read more...] about New funds could help grow Africa’s Great Green Wall.
