UFO enthusiasts have slapped Facebook after the company deleted the mass entry event in Forbidden Area 51, another reason to fuel the ever-popular conspiracy theory of concealing the existence of aliens on Earth. The explanation for deleting the event is that it violated community standards.
"Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us" was an event that drew more than two million people who reported attendance via Facebook. The purpose of the event was to bring as many people together as possible into the strictly forbidden area of the US Army to once and for all solve the mystery of flying saucers and aliens inside.
Entry to Area 51 was planned for September 20th, and few nearby hotels have already reported being filled for the period since the event gained enormous popularity. Local sheriff Carrie Lee says as many as 500 tourists can make chaos in the area creating traffic jams and parking problems because the closest township to District 51 has only 5,200 residents.
The Pentagon may also have played a role in Facebook's move after trying to discourage UFO enthusiasts with a statement that "US forces are ready to defend the country and its secrets."
The talk of the event has taken to Twitter following the hashtag # Area51 where many comments that the deletion is a trifle because everyone knows the date and place of the gathering.
Scientists have been able to capture images of huge sharks in the waters of Scotland with the help of Britain's first autonomous shark camera.
Owned by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), the underwater robot has observed different behaviors of sharks collected in the waters of northwest Scotland. Scientists hope that these images will help preserve this kind of shark. Although little is known about the huge sharks prevalent in Scottish waters, environmental and animal protection activists want this area to be declared protected.
The REMUS Shark Cam captures high-resolution photos and high-quality video from different angles. It is a large shark Cetorhinus maximus, the world's second-largest whale shark, protected in several states.
"These giant fish are spectacular and it's an unforgettable experience to watch them gracefully feed on the surface of the water. This technology gives us a look at shark behavior, which is very exciting. The first recordings led us to reassess their behavior, and we concluded that these sharks seem to spend a lot more time swimming above the seabed than we thought, "said Susan Henderson, a researcher, and researcher at Maritime Policy.
The key issue facing modern society today is how humanity can best adapt to extreme climate change. Perhaps the answer to how it should or should not be done can be found in the past. For example, from the Mayan civilization.
In the scientific study "The Role of Nutrition in Resistance and Sensitivity to Climate Change among Early Mayan Agricultural Communities" published in the journal Current Anthropology, the authors Clare Ebert, Julie Hogarth, Jaime Ave, Brendan Caletton and Douglas Kenneth Explore Ability of the ancient Maya to withstand periods of severe climate change.
The authors found that the growing need for a high-class corn-based diet may have made it more difficult for residents to withstand drought. This, in turn, led to the collapse of this civilization.
"Population growth and environmental degradation caused by the intensification of agricultural production, coupled with socio-conditional nutrition preferences, have made the community less flexible and less resilient," says Claire Ebert.
The scientists came to this conclusion after analyzing the human remains of 50 graves found in an old Mayan community in Belize, as well as in neighboring settlements. Measurement of carbon activity indicates that the oldest bones from these tombs date from between 735 and 400 BC, and the youngest remains between 800 and 850 BC.
The Laboratory for Human Paleoecology and Geochemistry of Isotopes at Pennsylvania State University measured the values of stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes from the samples taken. This way the diet of individuals and how it has changed over time has been reconstructed. The scientists paid particular attention to corn.
The result has shown that the persistent insistence of high-class locals to increase corn production, as well as the advantage given to this drought-tolerant crop, are probably among the factors that led to the collapse of the social-political system.
If you like cats, but because of an allergy you can't be near, you'll soon be able to enjoy your favorite animal, thanks to the latest vaccine scientists have discovered.
People diagnosed with cat allergy are allergic to the Fel-d1 protein found in the fur of these animals. This protein attaches to the cat's dandruff and then spreads to the area in which the cat lives or resides.
When the protein Fel-d1 enters the body of a person who is allergic, there is increased secretion of histamine, which causes redness of the eyes, sneezing and difficulty breathing. This is especially dangerous for people who also have asthma or some other form of respiratory illness.
The vaccine called HypoCat is the solution for all people who have this problem. Scientists at the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland have been working on the vaccine for more than ten years and point out that previous research and experiments have shown that it works.
The HypoCat vaccine is injected into cats, boosting their immune system and thereby helping to eliminate the Fel-d1 protein from their body, according to a report published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
The vaccine is not yet available for commercial use.

This company joins SpaceX and several other companies that want to provide internet access from satellites in places where there is no access or is of poor quality.
Perhaps the question of what the orbit of the Earth will look like when all the registered companies will set up their satellites for providing internet access may already have to be asked. These systems operate with thousands of satellites, so they can freely be said to potentially pose a problem for the future, for an orbit that already has a problem with space-based waste.
Amazon filed a request to the US-based FCC to obtain a permit for the placement of 3,236 satellites in orbit on Earth, where they will be able to provide Internet access to every part of the planet, especially where it is not available or is of poor quality.
With this, Amazon joins several other companies, of which the most famous is SpaceX, which have already launched their first 60 satellites.
From Amazon, they say they will be able to officially offer their service when they set up about 500 satellites from the planned over 3,000.
SpaceX plans to set up many more satellites, that is, their system will comprise about 12,000 satellites.
Astronomers have already complained about the "crowd" that is being done in orbit, saying that it will not be possible to observe the sky from the surface of the Earth when all planned satellites are set.
However, the companies they set out point out that they are not so big and that when they are placed on the planned positions, they will not bother much.
In order to avoid the ability of satellites to remain as space-based waste, they will have a run-time, after which they will be "burned out" in the atmosphere before they break up or lose contact with them.
The NASA will soon send the Dragonfly drone to Titan's mission, Saturn's biggest moon. The goal is to explore multiple locations with possible living conditions.
NASA said Dragonfly will fly from location to location via Titan, a satellite whose conditions are similar to those on Earth four billion years ago. If the mission is successful, it could reveal how life on our planet originated.
The Dragonfly mission is part of NASA's New Frontiers program and aims to understand how this chemistry has given way to biology. Scientists have long considered the Titan satellite to be attractive for study. Many people think that he might be able to support the life of microorganisms.
Titanium is organically composed of complex molecules which at least can be part of extraterrestrial biology. Titan's landscape is dominated by sand dunes and waterways composed of hydrocarbon, liquid methane, and ethane. Its surface is made up of ice, frozen water like a hard rock. Under the crust, there is a liquid water reservoir that astrophysicists consider to have the same temperature as the shallow water in the Pacific Ocean.
Looking through photo albums, it often happens that we want to translate them into a video form, accompanied by an appropriate music track. Such moves know how to take time, and even with limited performance.
Not with LightMV.
It's a relatively new cloud-based tool, and it offers rich opportunities for creating professional videos from your photos.
LightMV opens the gates for free and VIP users. The biggest difference is in the offer of templates, that is, previously prepared templates from professional designers. Namely, free users have less choice of templates, but the final result is not accompanied by (watermarked) marks. VIP users, however, have a significantly greater choice. Before thinking about such a transition, we recommend that you first check out the free features of LightMV.
However, after selecting any of the offered templates, enter and distribute the photos, select music, and, if desired, write a specific message that might apply to the video or the recipient. Then, you can share the finished video on some of the most popular social networks or download it to your computer.
LightMV allows you to create high-quality video materials on your PC, Mac, phone, or tablet.
After many years of announcements, it finally happened - Apple decided to "kill" the iTunes application. This music service has been active since 2001 and was initially considered revolutionary, but has lost its popularity in recent years and has begun to lose users.
In fact, Apple has decided to divide iTunes into several different applications. Hence, instead of iTunes, Apple users will have access to Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV.
Apple's iTunes speculation has been in existence a few years ago, but Apple did not confirm it until WWDC event in San Jose yesterday, which, in addition to this news, announced several more news about the future operations of the company.
All users who want to log on to the new services will have to do so through a new entry in which the email and user data will be hidden and protected. For the Windows operating system, the iTunes application will remain unchanged.
"Privacy is a fundamental human right, and we intend to respect it," said the head of the software department at Apple, Craig Federighi.
In addition to the new applications, Apple announced that soon the new iOS 13 operating system will arrive, which will have different and improved features, as well as changes in the interface. One is Dark Mode, which is very different from that of Android and is optimized for the entire operating system. All iOS applications will have a dark background, at the option of the user.
The new Apple Watch and Mac Pro were announced at WWDC, which received much criticism of the lack of novelties and improvements. Although Mac Pro has quite powerful specifications, the starting price of as much as $ 5,999 makes it too expensive for the casual user on the market, but costs do not stop there. The price of 5,999 dollars refers only to the housing, and in the price, the display and the bottom pad are not calculated.
Middle-class smartphones are very popular in world markets, and Huawei is pushing as one of the best manufacturers of such devices. The fact that the new Maimang 8 looks familiar is due to the fact that this smartphone is identical to the Huawei P Smart +, which appeared on the market last year.
On the front of the phone, there is a 6.21-inch FullHD + display and a drop-in notch, featuring an 8MP camera. On the back side, there is a main 24MP camera, a 16MP ultra-wide lens and a small camera with a 2MP depth sensor. Also, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back cover.
Maimang 8 comes with a Kirin 710 processor in combination with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, which can be upgraded with additional 512GB via a microSD card slot.
As for the battery, this smartphone is powered by a unit of 3,400 mAh. It uses EMUI 9 built on a standard Android 9 Pie operating system.
The phone will be available in two colors - Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue, with a starting price of 244 euros. It will be officially launched on June 12th, and the pre-sale starts today.
The combination of the increasingly serious consequences of climate change and the slow reaction of humans put humanity on a melancholic road leading into a chaotic world that can cause global social collapse, according to a new report by the independent think tank The Breakthrough - National Center for Climate Restoration based in Melbourne.
The report was presented by Chris Barry, a former chief of the Australian Defense Forces and a retired Admiral of the Australian Navy.
"The authors presented a cruel truth about the hopeless situation in which humanity and our planet are located. The report notes that there is a real opportunity for the human race to go into extermination, "says Barry.
One of the conclusions is that climate change is a medium-term threat to human civilization, and that world governments must step up their efforts to fight global warming. The harmful effects of global warming will be reflected in a reduced amount of food and water in some areas and will be a catalyst for socio-political instability and increased unrest and clashes in the world.
The authors of the report calculated that if current pollution is continued, by 2050 there will be an increased temperature of three degrees Celsius compared to the pre-industrial period.
The consequences would be the melting of ice surfaces, the widespread loss of eternal ice, drought, and the dying of life in parts of Amazon.
The destabilization of air currents will significantly affect the intensity and geographical distribution of Asian and African monsoons, and together with the additional slowdown of the Gulf Stream, the systems for sustaining life in Europe are also being questioned, the report says. North America would be exposed to catastrophic climatic extremes, including fires, heat waves, drought ... The summer monsoons in China would disappear, and the levels of large Asian rivers would be significantly lower due to the loss of more than a third of the Himalayan ice.
The loss of the Andes glaciers would be up to 70 percent, and precipitation in Mexico and Central America would be reduced by 50 percent.
The United States ban imposed on Huawei has received another consequence that will further complicate the work of the Chinese giant. From this month, Huawei will no longer be able to use microSD memory cards, which will have to go to another, alternative solution.
Officially, Huawei is no longer a member of the SD Association - a trading group that has agreed on standard specifications for SD and microSD memory cards. In other words, Huawei no longer has the license to provide support for SD and microSD cards in the following models of smartphones and laptops of the company.
SD Association confirmed that Huawei is no longer a member of the group due to orders issued by US President Donald Trump, a new blow to the company's chances of maintaining competitiveness in the smartphone market. SD and microSD cards will continue to be used on existing Huawei models, but the company will not be able to use this standard for future devices.
Earlier this month, Huawei's collaboration canceled Google, ARM, Intel, Qualcomm and Broadcom, and Wi-Fi Alliance, an alliance that sets up Wi-Fi standards in the industry, temporarily restricted Huawei's membership due to bans from the United States. Meanwhile, the Chinese company voluntarily left JEDEC, the group that standardizes RAM specifications.
However, the problem of banning the use of SD and microSD cards are unlikely to be the biggest concern of the leadership of Huawei, as the company has recently started producing its own Nano-Memory Card, which is physically smaller than the standard microSD card and does the same function.
Last week, SpaceX sent the Falcon 9 rocket with 60 satellites in space. The Dutch astronomer Marco Lagrange managed to record the satellites as orbiting the Earth, one day after the rocket sent satellites into orbit on Earth.
Elon Musk has confirmed that all 60 satellites are online and are fully operational and that the launch mission has gone smoothly. If his superfast internet project proves successful, SpaceX could beat competitors like Amazon and OneWeb, who are also trying to establish their own Internet configuration.
In the next few years, SpaceX plans to launch thousands of satellites. Thus cheap internet would be available in most of the world's population, where it is still unavailable. The whole project costs $ 10 billion.

London, May 20, 2019 (MIA) - Pedophiles increasingly use social networks, especially Instagram to lure children, according to a study by the Association for the Protection of Children against Violence.
Police in England and Wales reported 1,944 incidents involving sexual connotation involving children.
For that type of communication with children, Instagram was mostly used - 32 percent (1,317 cases), Facebook (23 percent) and Snapchat (14 percent).
Facebook and Instagram have fiercely fought against this. In April two years ago, it was decided to punish that kind of communication.
Five years after the decision was made, five thousand such violations were recorded, but in the Association they say that the figure does not reflect the true state of affairs.
A police report said seven out of ten victims were girls aged 12 to 15 years. Every fifth girl is under the age of 11, and the youngest victim was only five years old.
Peter Vanles, director of the Association, says social networks do not respect the rules.
-The data show that children cannot be safe on social networks. We must not wait for the next tragedy to happen. Companies must respond, he says.
The National Anti-Crime Agency says that the platforms used by children and young people must have mechanisms that prevent such behavior on the Internet.
"Children and young people should be alerted when these situations are in question," they stress.
In the deepest point of the Indian Ocean live fish from the Liparidae family are now seen for the first time.
British experts descended to a depth of about 7.1 meters in the Indian Ocean and saw rare creatures left without words. During the eight-hour mission, photographs of creatures that are presumed to be new and so far unseen have been made.
As a leading expert on marine ecology at the University of Newcastle, Dr. Alan Jamison needed two and a half hours to reach the bottom of the ocean in one of the world's most isolated points 100 nautical miles off the island of Bali. The expedition was led by the American Viktor Veskovo, and they traveled to the bottom in a submarine for two and passed more than 7,192 meters.
"We do not often see something so unusual that leaves us without words," said Jamison for Mirror.
For the first time, human beings have seen fish from the Liparodae family. Unfortunately, during the expedition, samples of artificial fibers and plastics were found, which means that human-induced pollution has reached the most isolated points on our planet.
NASA reported that the Hubble telescope made a spectacular spiral galaxy photography NGC 2903, part of the constellation Leo, 30 million light-years away from Earth.
About 75 percent of the galaxies in space are spiral. Milky Way has been reclassified into a spiral galaxy with a central part and spiral star-filled stars, as well as cosmic dust and gases.
The focus of NASA is currently focused on black holes, and spiral galaxies contain black holes that are once near the center. Hubble's research on spiral galaxies aims to uncover the connection between black holes and local galaxies.
