(Tokyo University of Science) How did organic matter reach the Earth in the first place? One way to ponder this question is by observing the distribution and abundance of complex organic molecules in interstellar gas clouds. However, detecting such molecules in the less dense regions of these gas clouds has been challenging. Now, scientists from Japan have found concluding evidence for the presence of a particular complex organic molecule in such a region for the first time.
It’s tempting with the rapid rise of remote work due to COVID-19 to think that out of sight is out of mind when it comes to your PCs. If your employees can still hop on a video call, they must be working at maximum productivity. The truth is much more complicated.If your organization, like so many others, has a four-year PC refresh cycle, the new wave of remote work should, if anything, accelerate that cycle. Even before the current global health crisis, users were becoming more mobile than ever before, raising risks around security, flexibility, efficiency and efficacy.While the precautionary and voluntary remote work continues, IT staff is also facing unprecedented challenges. Onboarding employees, supporting current ones, and maintaining systems for maximum productivity are challenges they are struggling to solve, all while trying to stay afloat with their higher-level duties.To read this article in full, please click here

The company filed an official challenge against the European Commission on July 15, and confirmed it's suing the Commission to Reuters on Monday.

Facebook is resisting giving over reams of internal documents to the EU's antitrust investigator.
Bloomberg reported that on July 15 Facebook's lawyer in the EU filed an official challenge to a request from the European Commission for documents relating to the company's internal practices. Facebook confirmed to Reuters on Monday it's suing the Commission for demanding unreasonable quantities of information. The Commission said it would defend its position in court, per Reuters.
Facebook's lawyer Tim Lamb said the EU's requested internal emails that mentioned a set of 2,500 terms including "big question," "shut down," and "not good for us," and could end up infringing on the privacy of individual employees.
"We are cooperating with the Commission and would expect to give them hundreds of thousands of documents," Lamb told Business Insider in a statement. "The exceptionally broad nature of the Commission's requests means we would be required to turn over predominantly irrelevant documents that have nothing to do with the Commission's investigations, including highly sensitive personal information such as employees' medical information, personal financial documents, and private information about family members of employees.
"We think such requests should be reviewed by the EU Courts."
The Commission has been investigating Facebook's data practices and its Marketplace platform since summer 2019, but has not yet launched a formal antitrust probe.
Reuters reports Facebook has already handed 315,000 documents over to the Commission.
