Google Calendar, more useful than ever: how to add apps to the new app

If you're not the most efficient when it comes to scheduling and following them, the latest version of Google Calendar makes your life significantly easier.

About two years ago, Google launched Tasks for iPhone and Android. In a context where it was not the most original application in the world, it did not necessarily make waves in the industry. But it came with a significant advantage. Task schedules were also integrated into the Google web calendar.

To make things even easier, Google has now integrated the full functionality of Tasks into Google Calendar for Android or iOS. This makes it significantly easier to see important appointments and events in your main calendar application. In addition, you can enter new dates and events in a significantly more efficient way, with all the features that Tasks made available to you.

In other words, you don't need the standalone Tasks app anymore, because you can view and create tasks, appointments, events directly in Google Calendar. To create a new task in the calendar using the mobile application of the same name, simply click on the Create button in the lower right corner and choose Task.

Immediately, you will be faced with a new window that you may recognize if you have used Task before. There you can enter the details of the event you are considering, the date, time, place. You can choose to be an all-day event, such as an anniversary or just for a few minutes. Predictably, if we are talking about an anniversary or event from the same spectrum, you can check the option to automatically repeat the event in the future calendar. When you're done, click Save in the upper right.

Unless it's obvious, any changes to Google Calendar are instantly synced across all of your devices and the web, provided you're signed in with the same username and password.

Unprecedented changes from Dacia. They were unveiled after the announcement of the new models

Dacia has already presented the new generations of its representative models, Sandero and Logan. Sandero is the best-selling model in Western European markets, and Logan is dominant in the Dacia sales sector in Eastern Europe, in the North African and Eastern markets, but also In Turkey, where it is sold under the Renault brand.

Erde Tunga, designer of the Renault group in Paris, revealed to Profit.ro the first sketch of Sandero, from 2015. He is the one who created both the two generations of Duster, that And this new generation of Sandero.

Thus, he said how to make the first mold, with the help of trainees or young designers. CMF modular platforms also began to be developed many years ago. They consist of five interchangeable modules, starting with the engine compartment, passenger compartment, the two front / rear seats and the electrical / electronic systems. This is where the differences from the Renault Clio, the first model that used this platform, come into play.

We also find out, according to the same source, that each of these modules has been simplified systems and that they have been ordered from component suppliers to align with Dacia's pricing policy. For the ADAS system, for example, the one that brings a lot of safety technologies, among which is the emergency braking, a lot of tests and changes have been made. The final decision was to replace the pump with one more suited to the brand's budget.

Also, through the Media Control system, each customer will have the performances that he can afford, ie his own phone. A state-of-the-art Samsung or iPhone will provide the Dacia Sandero with the most fashionable multimedia system.

The entire car industry has been severely affected by the pandemic. Sales of new cars in Europe fell by 40%. However, Dacia officials are ambitious. They have announced that they will launch the first electric model, but also that they will bring on the market updated versions of Dacia Logan, Dacia Sandero and Sandero Stepway.

Dacia is going through one of the greatest periods of modernization in the history of the brand. The company will present in a few months its first electric car, and now it has presented the new generations Logan and Sandero that look more modern and are on a new platform, CFM-B, the one used by Renault's Clio and Captur models.

Tests of a treatment against coronavirus, suspended: what researchers Eli Lilly have discovered

There is no effective treatment with a high success rate against coronavirus. Moreover, the testing of an experimental treatment has just been suspended.

Late yesterday, pharmaceutical group Eli Lilly announced that it was suspending the clinical trial of its experimental antibody treatment against Coronavirus infections for safety reasons. As usual, in such situations, the level of transparency of the manufacturing company is not very high, because any negative statement may be reflected in a sharp decrease in the value of traded shares. on the stock exchange. Ideally, it should be limited to just a few essential words to get the message across.

“We know that, as a precautionary measure, the independent health monitoring committee in the ACTIV-3 process has recommended a break in recruitment,” a spokesman told AFP. a trial involving hospitalized Covid-19 patients. Lilly supports the decision of the independent committee to ensure the safety of patients participating in the study, it is also shown in the same statement.

As a reference, we are talking about a treatment similar to the one given to Donald Trump, shortly after the onset of symptoms of Covid-19 infection. Eli Lilly develops synthetic antibodies that can be administered intravenously. They are manufactured to neutralize the coronavirus responsible for the condition that has led to over one million deaths globally.

The difference is that Donald Trump benefited from monoclonal antibodies developed by the Regeneron company, which are also in an experimental testing stage. No such treatment has been certified by any medical authority for widespread use.

Eli Lilly and Regeneron approached the US Drug Agency (FDA) last week for urgent approval of their treatments. However, the process is a long one, and the FDA must first check its safety and the possibility of serious side effects.

It is unclear at this time whether the suspension of synthetic antibody treatments will affect other companies, such as Regeneron or just Eli Lilly, who issued a press release on the subject.

Google confirms what Americans will do after the election: the first Trump-Biden confrontation, a disaster

Donald Trump and Joe Biden had their first election debate before the Nov. 3 election. Because it was a disaster of great proportions, the Americans quickly reached Google.

In the context of Donald Trump's native aggression, Joe Biden's only solution to remain relevant was to descend to his level in the confrontation of a few days ago. Thus, insults, chaos, and headlines from the international press that are not at all optimistic about America's future were quickly reached. “The night when American democracy reached its lowest level,” the BBC wrote.

It didn't take long for the debate to take place until the Americans joined Google. According to data released by the Mountain View giant, many wanted to know â € œHow to apply for Canadian citizenship? Â €. The same situation was repeated in 2016, shortly after the election in which Trump became head of state.

The confrontation between the two candidates in the November 3 presidential election has left many Americans in a hurry to find solutions to escape, seeking information on emigration to the neighboring country. The panic was so great that the search for “How to move in Canda?” Exploded, with people mistyping the name of the neighboring country.

The trend in the number of queries on Google began to rise during the debate, but continued long after the end of the confrontation between Donald Trump and Joe Biden during the night. A new search peak took place in the morning of the next day.

Most of the searches came from Massachusetts, followed by Washington and Michigan, according to The Guardian. As an interesting detail, the “Let's Emigrate to Canada” movement began with the presidential election in 2004, with the victory of George W. Bush. The former record for Google searches in the same spectrum was set in 2016, following Trump's defeat of Hillary Clinton.

What existed before the Big Bang? Amazing answers from a Nobel winner

Before the Big Bang, when our universe began to expand rapidly, it is possible that there was an earlier universe that took its place.

Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematician and physicist at Oxford University who recently won the Nobel Prize for his work on black holes, suggested that our universe was not the first to exist. Telegraph. And, he added, this will not be the last either.

“The Big Bang was not the beginning,” Penrose said, according to the source. “There was something before the Big Bang and that's what we will have in our future.” In Penrose's vision, a universe will continue to expand until all of its matter eventually decomposes. And then, in its place, a new one will begin.

“We have a universe that is constantly expanding and the whole mass is decomposing, and in this crazy theory, that distant future becomes the Big Bang of another eon,” he said, according to The Telegraph.

Proof of his idea is what Penrose calls “Hawking Points”: the remains of the black holes before the Big Bang that survived their own universes, but are now at the end of their lives. And leaking radiation as it fades into nothingness.

“So our Big Bang started with something that was the distant future of a previous eon, and there would have been similar black holes evaporating through the evaporation of Hawking,” Penrose added. They will produce these points in the sky, which I call Hawking Points.

The time scale for the complete evaporation of a black hole is huge, possibly longer than the age of our current universe, making it almost impossible to detect. However, Sir Roger believes that the “dead” black holes of previous universes or “zeons” are now observable. If true, Hawking's theories would prove to be correct.

Instagram creates tags to alert you to state-controlled accounts and posts

Last week, Instagram began tagging state-backed media, following a policy that the company's father, Facebook, announced in October last year. Started to implement it in its own social network in June.

Tags have already started appearing, and users will see both pages and posts marked as being controlled by certain states.

The tag also has an informative role, which is why, if you touch the tags, you will be redirected to a support page, where you can learn more about the policy. Some of the publications where you will see the label include Redfish, In the Now, and Soapbox.

“Instagram defines” state-controlled media “as media that Instagram considers to be partially or entirely under the editorial control of a state government, based on its own research. and evaluations against a set of criteria developed for this purpose, says the company on the page.

“We will bring these accounts to a higher standard of transparency, because we believe that they combine the influence of a media organization with the support of a state.”

Facebook says it plans to add tags for Instagram ads “in the coming months.”

When Facebook detailed the policy in June, it said it had consulted with 65 experts to create an internal criterion to help correctly assign the “state-controlled” label.

As can be seen from the screenshots posted on Twitter by journalist Casey Michel, some of these publications have already updated their profiles to challenge the labels. They have the option to appeal officially.

Coronavirus and seasonal flu, detected simultaneously in a person, for the first time: where it happened

In recent months, authorities have issued several warnings of a “super-virus” combining coronavirus with seasonal flu. The inevitable happened for the first time.

The flu season has begun in many parts of the world. In the context in which coronavirus infections have not disappeared, several experts were of the opinion that we will have infections simultaneously with both viruses and in the same person. For the first time this year, the phenomenon happened to a person in Mexico.

The medical community has taken this case very seriously for the first time. Physicians are concerned about the significant additional pressure such cases could put on the health care system, first in Mexico and later in other countries around the world.

“More than the convergence of the two diseases in the same person, a less common thing, we should be concerned with juxtaposing the epidemic with the flu season, which could lead to a saturation of hospitals.” Alejandro Macias, responsible for managing the 2009 flu epidemic in Mexico, wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Confirmation of the first case of influenza and coronavirus in the same person was made on Sunday by the Mexican government. The first statements on this subject were made by Jose Luis aloma, director general of epidemiology at the Ministry of Health. The first case of the simultaneous presence of the two viruses was reported in Mexico. “Both the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the pathogen that causes Covid-19 disease, and the AH1N1 virus, which triggers the flu,” he said.

Unfortunately, the person confirmed with both seasonal flu and Covid-19 has more comorbidities. It is about a 54-year-old woman with a history of obesity, had cancer, suffers from an autoimmune disease and also has chronic lung disease. Currently, the patient has been hospitalized, and her evolution is good. As a reference, the patient began to show symptoms at the end of September, which led to her hospitalization at the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition Salvador Zubirán.

Regarding the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in Mexico, this country has 817,503 cases detected by Covid-19 which were reflected in 83,781 deaths.
