High risk factor: bad diet

After a global study, life expectancy rises worldwide, but the gap between countries can be more than 30 years

EU cartel procedure: BMW pays 373 million euros, suspected of exhaust gas fraud

BMW must pay a money pit of 373 million euros in the EU cartel procedure against german automakers. The manufacturer has in the discussions of the autoconzern examined by the brussels authority "too high transparency" with regard to the rough of adblue tanks and the achievable range – which is already prohibited from competition law. Original premiums of the EU commission with regard to a possible exhaust gas manipulation, she has largely dropped, shared BMW.

Privacy Label: Apple explains what developers have to be observed

For new app store applications as well as updates since december, it has been mandatory that these so-called data protection labels are delivering – not just the iphone, but also on the other apple platforms.

However, there seems to be a lot of confusion, which is indeed necessary and how concrete the information must be made. Apple has therefore set up a new information page, the details of more detail. This should be urged by all developers urgently.

Auto certification by developer

The new offer is currently available only in english and leads more information on the different data types covered by the data protection label – including SMS, e-mails and game content. In addition, developers experience convenier details of web views collected information and user-generated data in documents and other file types. Apple also makes it clear how to deal with location data – or their different types of description.

Apple's Time Machine finally runs with APFS

Big sur comes with a function that apple users have missed since the apple file system (APFS) has been used: the compatibility of the proprietary file system with the backup method time machine on external media. This reports developers who could try the beta of macos 11.

Transparent and as usual

If you wanted to make fuses built up with the technique built in the operating system, the mac connected hard drives and ssds had to be formatted with the old file system HFS +, although apfs are standard on all macos machines – for the first time with macos 10.13 ALIAS HIGH SIERRA. Now this is finally changed – already the first beta of big sur seems to easily create backups with APFS volumes. (local backups on the APFS standard medium have already been usable.To)

No reformatting necessary

The time machine settings accept external APFS media, as has so far only with HFS + volumes the case – and also the backup works as aware. A reformatting of APFS media in the HFS + format, which was necessary for time-machine activation so far, remotes. The process is transparent, it does not seem to give a difference to HFS +, as many users had also boosted. Time machine puts commanative backups for the last 24 hours, day-to-day backups for the past month and weekly backups for the past months – each until the record is full. The oldest backups are beaten gradually gradually.

Samsung builds investments in chip technology

The sudkorean electronics giant samsung wants to increase its billions of investment in chip technology in view of the global semiconductor scarfity. By 2030, 171 trillion WON (about 125 billion euros) should be invested in the business with modern chip processors and contract manufacturing (foundry), as the world’s largest manufacturer of memory chips on thursday announced. This should accelerate research in the field of processor technology and the construction of new production facilities. Samsung was originally inquired in april 2019 investments of 133 trillion WON.

Samsung electronics has set itself the goal of expanding its market fuference for storage chips, which are used in smartphones, also on so-called logic chips until the end of this decade. For this purpose, samsung has worked together with various semiconductor design companies, part manufacturers and derogers in the past two years, as well as research institutions, threw it.

In addition, the company started with the construction of a new production line in its manufacturing complex in the city of pyeongtaek, which is about 65 kilometers. The system should be completed in the second half 2022. Other rough chip companies such as the industry prime intel in the US and TSMC in taiwan want to significantly expand their capacity with additional billion investments.

India and turkey were long as a parade examples of the laizist state doktrin. But the religious nationalism of the current autocrats is sudden and stalls on old misunderstandings.

The political observers of asia recognize the pregnant parallels of the turkish and indian backlog progressive democracies and their caught. The misunderstandings of the west are already reflected in the perception of the orient as a political space.

A question of the definition power

During the media controlled openness since the 11. September the US and the middle east focuses, world political escalation also affects very different regions and conflicts that are rather marginal in the west. For example, in latin america, human rights activists, social movements and dissocessors of neoliberalism have been confronted since the latest quickly with a lump-sum terrorism.

"That’s what the city is always recognizable, where you remember when you have forgotten the skin mushroom and the heat for a long time, the flames, the fire over the refinery, the troubled ziers in orange, yellow and blue high over the roof. The oil fighters appear far from the four- or funfstocky hotels in the center, the drilling tower, tanks and militar versions to be seen at the incident. … The village that seems to insist only from plug-in barracks is in the semi-darkness, despite its allegedly 400,000 inhabitants and the large refinery in the country. In many neighborhoods no electricity because the power plant is too small or undergone or the line is broken again. … The bus rocks restless. You can see the swinging glowing pears of billiardsalons, the dark, sweethearing skin of passers-by, the small powers in front of the pubs, the cantinas, and spurt, that this one encounter st, a nervous together, the return of a passion you just do not get started. This city is barrancabermeyja."

Old swede: 50 years of volvo in germany

Ulm, 22. July 2008 – volvo comes from latin and means "I roll," a fitting name for a car manufacturer – especially since the swedes’ first model, the ov4, covered just 90 kilometers. It is all the more surprising that the meaningful name actually had a completely different origin: assar gabrielsson, who together with gustaf larson is said to have forged the plan for an automobile company at a crab dinner, had acquired the dormant subsidiary AB volvo from his former employer, the ball bearing factory SKF, and established it as the company name. In april 1927, the company’s first mass-produced passenger car rolled off the production line.

Curious after koln

It was not until 1958 that volvo came to germany and moved into its first plant in frankfurt. In 1965, the company moved to dietzenbach in hesse, and in 1994, under curious circumstances, to bruhl near koln. At that time they wanted to be close to the possible merger partner renault (which is still located in bruhl today), but this merger did not happen. As a result, volvo did not move back to hesse, but settled in the southern district of koln, rodenkirchen. In 1999, this choice of location proved to be quite practical when ford took over the swedish automaker. Since then, many volvo models have been and continue to be equipped with ford technology, such as the V40.

Back to the volvo brand, which of course also includes the appropriate logo. Since swedish steel was one of the basic components of the vehicle, it made sense to use the common symbol for iron, which is also the symbol for the planet mars. The only problem was attaching the small symbol to the radiator, so it was fitted with a diagonal support for the actual emblem. The prominent diagonal volvo stripe was therefore not created as an ornament but as a fastening element.

AIRTAGS: Apple improves the stalking protection

Apple needs to emerge at the firmware for AIRTAGS: the version 1, which is already committed at the beginning of june.0.276, which is to improve the stalking protection of the tracker, will now be provided in a new catch. The version number itself remains unnecessary. Information on the innovations of the firmware revision has not yet called apple.

Many AIRTAG users reported that they are the firmware update to 1.0.276 have not received in the course of the backing weeks, but the new version after sharing has now been directly installed on the tags. Maybe the new build of the firmware thus corrects problems when playing.

The firmware version currently installed on the airtags can be found in the "where is?"-APP exams, for that you types the battery icon in the AIRTAG detail view to open the firmware version information – as well as the serial number. An installation of the update does not manually make, it will be performed automatically when the airtags are located near the associated iphone.
