Four years – that's how it has been since the official announcement of the OnePlus One. Hated by some and loved by others, the phone ultimately paved the way for a series of "flagship killers" to enter the stage. Meanwhile, OnePlus grew from a little-known Chinese phone company with only a bunch of employees to a well-known among enthusiasts brand boasting millions of followers. Today, OnePlus announced its latest smartphone – the OnePlus 6. It is a true successor to the OnePlus 5 and 5T before it, offering great specs at a price reasonable given today's trend of 1000-dollar flagships being the norm. But more about pricing later. Let's now go over all that makes the OnePlus 6 special.Design: glass meets metalLike it or not, the OnePlus 6 is adopting the glass-on-metal construction so popular among smartphones today.

Why star delta starter is preferred with induction motor
Just as it's impossible to think of Han Solo without Wookiee pal Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), it's also tough to think of the two pilots without their ship, that scrappy modified Corellian freighter known as the Millennium Falcon, which flies again this month in Solo: A Star Wars Story."Every kid wanted to be Han, and every kid wanted to fly the Millennium Falcon," said Tom Berges, one of the administrators of the I Grew Up Star Wars Facebook page. The group caters to old-school fans who were watching the original trilogy and playing with Star Wars toys from 1977 into the 1980s. Berges himself first saw the Falcon onscreen in 1977 and treasured the die-cast version of the Falcon he received in 1979."Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters in all of Star Wars lore, and his ship is of course just as iconic and important to the story," he says.On Ranker.com, the Millennium Falcon easily nabbed the top spot in a poll of readers' favorite sci-fi spaceships (the … [Read more...] about Why the Millennium Falcon is the biggest Star Wars star
By Katy Murphy | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: May 3, 2018 at 12:01 am | UPDATED: May 4, 2018 at 5:26 am The same story is playing out, over and over: People are flocking to the Bay Area for high-skilled, highly paid jobs, while cashiers, teachers and construction workers are, increasingly, saying goodbye to a place they no longer can afford. A new study released Thursday points to why the California housing crisis is so acute, particularly in the Bay Area — where a home destroyed by fire sold for more than $900,000 and it would take four minimum wage jobs to afford an apartment: More people are moving in from other states than moving out. No other region in California has experienced such explosive growth of high-paying jobs. Statewide, between 2011 and 2016, California added just 171 homes for every 1,000 people. “The boom is so ferocious that it exaggerates the driving up of the rents and the cost of living,” said … [Read more...] about Why the Bay Area is the epicenter of California’s housing crisis

By Virginia MorellApr. 24, 2018 , 7:01 PM Tourist spots around the globe offer people a chance to swim with whales and dolphins. But what impact do these activities have on the marine mammals, and should they be more strongly regulated? Maddalena Fumagalli, a cetacean biologist at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand, investigates these issues in a study on spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris) published today in Royal Society Open Science. She spoke to Science about her findings. This interview has been edited for clarity and length. Q: What do we know about the impact of these tourist activities on dolphins and whales? A: It’s been difficult to say because you need to have sites you can compare—such as one with heavy tourism, one with an intermediate amount, and one without any. The tourists’ interactions always happen during a critical phase of spinner dolphins’ daily lives. These dolphins [slim animals with long beaks known for their … [Read more...] about Is swimming with dolphins a good idea?
