Although they enjoyed a flawless group stage campaign with three wins from three, England didn't emphatically blow away of their opponents in the same way that other 2019 Women's World Cup contenders like France and the USA have.It's unlikely Cameroon will be a push-over - the African side have had to battle their way to get to the last 16, and their last-gasp win over New Zealand will ensure they'll go into this game with confidence at a high.Kick-off is at 5.30pm CET, meaning a 4.30pm BST for viewers in the UK.With a quarter-final tie against either Norway or Australia at stake, both managers will be pleased that they don't appear to have any injuries going into today's game.England boss Phil Neville rested a number of players in their last match against Japan, so expect the likes of Jodie Taylor, Beth Mead, Nikita Parris and Fran Kirby to all be back among the starting 11.Making their second consecutive appearance in the round of 16 at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Cameroon will be hoping to go better than they did at Canada 2015 where they were narrowly defeated 1-0 by China.
What was once a vague chunk of metal, wires and circuit boards is now finally starting to look like an actual rover.We are now just a little over a year away from the launch of the Mars 2020 Mission, which will see NASA’s new rover reach the Red Planet on February 18, 2021.Once in Jezero Crater, the rover will search for signs of prior habitability and evidence of past microbial life, collect rock and surface samples, and perform some groundwork for a human mission to Mars, including an oxygen production test.The Mars 2020 launch window from Cape Canaveral is between July 17 to August 5, 2020.That’s not terribly long from now, and accordingly, the rover is really starting to take shape.A major milestone was came on June 13, when engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California installed the vehicle’s suspension system and six wheels, as NASA reported in a press release.
The fifth generation of cellular technology (5G) and the sixth generation of Wi-Fi networking technology (Wi-Fi 6) will complement each other and will be game changers for digital transformation, according to an industry expert.Speaking to TechRadar Middle East, Alaa ElShimy, Managing Director and Vice President for Enterprise Business at Huawei Middle East, said that the biggest limitation for digital transformation is connectivity.However, he said that with better technological capabilities, Wi-Fi 6 will have a great impact on the digital transformation across multiple industries.He also said that Wi-Fi 6 is injecting new momentum into the market applications and service innovations which will be a “new growth engine” in the next three years and will become equal to or more than the sales of Wi-Fi 5 Wave 2.ElShimy believes that that everyone in the UAE would have migrated to Wi-Fi 6 in the next two to three yearsIn 2015, the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard was released to push beamforming and MU-MIMO to the mainstream, improving the system access capacity.

We’ve written plenty about the disruptive impact cutting-edge technologies are going to have on the job market.According to some experts, approximately 43% of current jobs in the United States are at risk of automation in the coming years.One of these new locations is going to be in space, a destination that’s currently booming thanks to renewed focus from NASA and an influx of private companies like SpaceX.Here’s a list of job titles that sound a lot like science fiction now, but almost certainly won’t a decade from now.Regulations concerning areas who has the rights to mine asteroids (more on that later) are broad and vague now.But they’re exactly the kind of areas that are going to be the subject of tomorrow’s multi-billion dollar lawsuits.
Microsoft does not allow its employees to use Slack, GeekWire's Nat Levy and Todd Bishop reported, citing an internal document.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Read more: Inside Slack's direct listing: Here's what actually went down between the tech company and its Wall Street advisersWhile Microsoft has a rival workplace chat app, called Microsoft Teams, the tech company reportedly cites security risks as the reason for its internal Slack ban.The company gives the following explanation in an internal list of software and online services it restricts or discourages employees from using, according to GeekWire:Slack Free, Slack Standard and Slack Plus versions do not provide required controls to properly protect Microsoft Intellectual Property (IP).
Bosses might think they know what they’re doing — after all, how hard is it to just set a deadline and expect people to meet it?But software development has a particular way of working that just doesn’t make sense to non-technical managers.Throwing more people at a project doesn’t helpManagers who are inexperienced or don’t have a software background often think a team will work faster if they introduce more warm bodies into the project.It’s a rookie move that always elicits groans from the dev team.The problem gets even worse if that person is a new hire or a rookie because anything this newbie does will have to be double-checked by one of the veterans — which, again, is valuable time spent away from the actual task.
CANNES, France—Saturday Night Live creator and producer Lorne Michaels said that the show wouldn’t be able to be created in this day and age due to budget constraints and “narrow casting.”Speaking at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on stage with Linda Yaccarino, chairman of advertising sales and client partnerships for NBCUniversal, Michaels gave a rare public retrospection of SNL over the years as the show heads into its 45th anniversary.“You couldn’t do this show now, mostly because of budget,” Michaels said, pointing to the depth of costumes and design that goes into each episode.“… You can’t start that now because we’re in an age of narrow casting.”He spoke of when the show first started, and all he budgeted for was opening credits, closing credits and nine commercial breaks, which gave them just enough time to change wigs and sets, he said.“You couldn’t do this show now, mostly because of budget.
Amid rising competitive pressure from AMD’s soon to be available Ryzen 3000 processor family, Intel may respond by slashing the prices on its 8th-Generation and 9th-Generation desktop CPUs by as much as 15%.Though unconfirmed, a report from DigiTimes suggests that Intel is looking at a minimum cut in price of 10% to address competition from AMD, an unprecedented move given Intel’s historic reluctance to compete on price.If accurate, the Intel Core i9-9900K processor, which is found on many high-end gaming PCs, could see a $75 price drop.Recent speculation about a price cut is not the first time that we’re hearing about Intel adjusting its strategy to address competition from rival AMD’s Ryzen lineup.Last month during Intel’s Investor Day, the company told analysts that it was lowering its gross margins estimates for the year, suggesting that a price drop may be in order.Intel blamed stiffer competition and the costs related to its transition to the 10nm and 7nm manufacturing process as reasons for the drop in gross revenue projections.
In what’s becoming an increasingly common story, a major city has run out of water.Reservoirs have turned into muddy splats on the landscape and the city is relying on mix of desalination plants and water being brought in by train and truck to quell unrest.Raj Bhagat, World Resources Institute’s sustainable cities manager in India, told Gizmodo that scarcity means the truck operators “sell water at very high prices... making it difficult for weaker sections of the population”.The city had gone nearly 200 days without rain, and after a weak 2018 North East monsoon season that runs from October to December, the four reservoirs that serve the city began to wither away earlier this year.Add in the intense heat that gripped India in May (though the worst of it was to the north of Chennai) and the withering process went into overdrive as water evaporated into the cloudless sky.Climate change has an influence on heat waves, raising the risks of more evaporation and baking in drought by sucking moisture out of the soil.
Prayers are said, routines are followed, and rituals are performed as some of the best athletes in the world prepare to harness the freakishly powerful bikes that mere mortals can only dream of reigning in.The speed, G-forces, and strategies that go into this race are heavily influenced not just by the riders, but the bikes themselves — and the technology that drips from every angle of their bespoke frames and bodies — can be the deciding factor in who makes it to the podium.Digital Trends was on site in Austin, TX for the third round of the 2019 MotoGP season to learn more about the latest advancements in motorcycle racing tech with the Red Bull KTM Factory MotoGP team.With the automotive world utilizing spoilers and air dams since the 1960s, it was only a matter of time before the premier class of motorcycle racing got some winged enlightenment.While MotoGP riders are certainly impressive, putting all that power to the ground without any electronic aids would be nearly impossible.In order for elbow dragging to be even remotely possible, the electronics on the bikes have to contend with a myriad of factors that affect traction, and make on-the-fly adjustments in milliseconds.
With Slack going public this week, Business Insider recently sat down with Jacob Bank, Gmail's director of product management, to learn more about Google's enterprise chat strategy.Bank said an important update will come later this summer when its team chat product, Hangouts Chat, moves into Gmail."But according to our research, the vast majority are just frustrated by having to constantly keep tabs on two separate places."Google will also try and help users manage their chat and email in a unified way, as well as cut down on interruptions by prompting them to use certain channels at certain times.Think about an important note to a manager or a marketing outreach to a potential customer — email is still probably the best means to communicate in certain situations.That's giving hope to companies like Google and Microsoft, who are betting their email products can not only co-exist with chat, but that email can make chat better.

This marks the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s first event to be hosted in South Carolina, and if you’re looking for a way to stream the bloody action online, then ESPN Plus is what you needESPN Plus is a premium online streaming service which was rolled out roughly one year ago.It offers users instant access to thousands of live sports programs, pre- and post-event coverage, exclusive shows, and more, all for $5 per month or $50 per year.Given the UFC’s growing relationship with ESPN, it’s also the best place to stream all of the frenzied MMA fights right on your computer, phone, or tablet.Headlining Fight Night 154 on ESPN Plus is a featherweight bout between Renato Moicano and Chan Sung Jung, and this will be the Moicano’s first UFC main event.Ranked seventh on the UFC featherweight roster with a record of 13 wins and only two losses, the Brazilian fighter is notable for having earned all of his octagon victories via submission or decision – Moicano has never won a fight by knockout.
Listening to grey seals recite vowel sounds and sing the melodies to Star Wars and 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' makes for excellent entertainment, but for the researchers who trained these aquatic mammals, it’s serious science.The mockingbird, for example, famously mimics the sounds produced by other bird species, and sometimes even noises produced by human activity, like car alarms and police sirens.Some parrots and ravens are really good at imitating human speech but, for the most part, this is an ability that eludes most animals.That’s a shame, because it prevents scientists from studying vocal learning, a trait critical for language acquisition in nonhuman mammals.As new research published this week in Current Biology shows, grey seals appear to be an exception.In a series of tests, these mammals demonstrated a remarkable capacity to copy simple melodies and human formants, suggesting they’re very capable vocal learners.
And according to new research, in helping to keep the pests away from our blood-rich body parts, sugar may for once be good for our health.But don’t start mixing up any sugar water just yet – or you might end up doing as much harm as good.In fact, it’s actually better than blood in terms of fueling flight and basic survival processes.Of course, this thirst for blood generates a terrible disease burden globally, often in the countries least well equipped to cope.Amid the hundreds of scientists across the world working to reduce the menace of mosquitoes, one promising avenue is investigating how their desires for sugar and blood interact.It focused on the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus), an invasive species that has infiltrated every continent, closely associates with humans, and is very difficult to suppress, making it a particularly dangerous transmitter of diseases such as dengue fever, yellow fever, and Zika virus.

US Cyber Command on Thursday launched an operation against an Iranian spy group, despite President Donald Trump's last-minute scrapping of a direct military strike, former intelligence officials said in a Yahoo News report.The Iranian group is believed to have supported the limpet mine attacks against two tanker ships earlier last week, which resulted in the US increasing its military posture against the country.The group reportedly tracked and targeted both military and civilian vessels sailing through the Strait of Hormuz.Trump has given significant autonomy to CYBERCOM, the US military's command for cyber-related operations, and authorized it to conduct offensive attacks against foreign adversaries during his presidency.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.United States Cyber Command on Thursday reportedly launched an operation against an Iranian spy group with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, despite President Donald Trump's last-minute scrapping of a direct military strike, former intelligence officials said in a Yahoo News report.
