Brief information: 5G, Google, Corona vaccination study, PS4 game

Our weekday news overview summarizes the most important news of the day in a short and concise manner.

Federal government wants to convince 5G sceptics

Together with local authorities, the Federal Government wants to achieve more understanding among citizens for the construction of new mobile masts and convince “5G sceptics”. The corona crisis once again underlines the importance of high-performance digital infrastructures and end-to-end accessibility, according to a letter from Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer and Environment Minister Svenja Schulze. The background to this are concerns in the population about radiation exposure, for example. There is also criticism that transmission masts are disfiguring the landscape. According to the ministers, the municipalities have to participate in the search for sites for new mobile radio stations and finally have to actively support the planned transmitter stations on site.

Google supports fact checker for Covid-19 with millions

Google intends to financially support 20 fact-checking organisations worldwide that are dedicated to the fight against disinformation, particularly in connection with the corona virus. The funding program is said to be worth more than 6.3 million US dollars. The aim of the funding programme is to make broader use of existing expertise, share experiences and thus reduce the spread of false information. In Germany, the Correctiv research centre is being supported in order to further expand a programme with which it hopes to involve citizens in the fight against disinformation.

Corona vaccination study begins in the USA

A vaccine is needed to stop the new coronavirus – and as soon as possible. Several candidates are already being developed. The first, which is now being tested in humans, comes from Moderna Therapeutics in Seattle, reports Technology Review. The company’s technology has enabled it to bring a vaccine into clinical trials more quickly than ever before. The first step, which has already begun, is a safety study to determine whether the vaccine is dangerous and actually triggers an immune response. The study is currently scheduled to last 14 months.

PS4 game “The Last of Us 2” postponed indefinitely

Although the words Coronavirus or Covid-19 are not used, the global crisis is cited as the reason for another postponement of The Last of Us 2. Developer Naughty Dog speaks of a difficult decision for the entire team, which has been working under high pressure and many overtime hours to complete the title for Playstation 4. Apart from a few small bugs the game is finished. When exactly The Last of Us 2 will be released remains uncertain.

Resident Evil 3

The remake of Resident Evil 3 focuses more on action than on horror. If we are still afraid, you ask – watch.

We were just afraid again in VR instead of RL in Resident Evil 7 VR. In the livestream of Resident Evil 3 remake it should be more action-packed. We play the PC version of Capcom and start the campaign from the beginning. Protagonist Jill Valentine from the first Resident Evil is controlled by video producer Michael Wieczorek, who is looking forward to numerous comments and emotional support in the chat on Youtube or Twitch.

What you need to know about Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 is a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis from 1999 for the first Playstation. The original was also more action-packed than its predecessors. However, the evil mutant Nemesis, who is always on Jill’s heels for most of the adventure, radiates fear. While the original still offered fixed camera perspectives, tank control and drawn backgrounds, the remake from the third-person perspective gets Nemesis by the collar. The action takes place simultaneously with Resident Evil 2, in which Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield explore the famous police station.

Linux on the mobile phone: New attempt with the Pinephone

The first of several projects working on the porting and development of FOSS systems for smartphones has submitted a device. Pine Microsystems is launching a smartphone with pre-installed Ubuntu touch. The Pinephone “Community Edition: UBports” is primarily aimed at developers and community members.

The “UBports Community Edition” is the first of several collaborative projects working on the porting and development of FOSS systems for smartphones. The UBports community is actively developing the delivered Ubuntu touch, after Canonical has officially discontinued and handed over the project in 2017.

Various operating systems

Users of the Pinephone have the possibility to install other ARM-based operating systems instead of Ubuntu-Touch – for example PostmarketOS, SailfishOS or Manjaro – and to boot from the SD card. Like Ubuntu-Touch, these are mostly in alpha or beta state and are not suitable for daily use.

The Pinephone has an ARM Cortex A-53 quad core with an Allwinner A64 chipset, which clocks with 1.2 Ghz and 2GB LPDDR3 memory. The display has a resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels. Rudimentary functions such as phone calls, SMS, LTE and GPS reception and hardware acceleration are available on the smartphone. The camera is not yet supported and a lack of USB host makes it difficult to operate peripheral devices. The battery life is also still causing problems.

For customers who are concerned about data protection and privacy, the dedicated hardware switches for the microphone, camera and wireless interfaces will be of interest. However, these are located under the battery cover and are difficult to reach.

Reminder of Pine64

The hardware revision 1.2 of the “Community Edition” is intended to correct many of the shortcomings of the “Braveheart Edition” of the Pinephone, which has been delivered to intrepid users since January. In the manufacturer’s own Pine64 forum especially German users express their displeasure about delays and intransparent communication. Buyers report of deliveries that do not pass through customs and are sent back due to lack of CE marking. Also, the manufacturer only offers a 30-day warranty and asks buyers not to request a replacement via PayPal if minor pixel errors occur.

This is reminiscent of the bumpy start of the Pine64 board, which Pine sent into the race in 2015 as a cheap Raspi competitor. After the hardware was sold, the manufacturer provided little software support and documentation for users and developers. With the “Community” and the “Braveheart” edition of the Pinephone, Pine now clearly points out that it is not a ready-to-use product. The CE marking is also available in the meantime.

The Pinephone “Community Edition: UBports” can be pre-ordered for $149 at the Pine Online Store. For each unit sold, the manufacturer plans to donate $10 to the UBports community to promote the spread of Linux on mobile phones.

5 advantages of the low carb diet

For many strength athletes and bodybuilders it is impossible to imagine life without it – the low carb diet. The term Low Carb stands for a form of nutrition in which the proportion of carbohydrates is reduced as far as possible. In order to take full advantage of the benefits of low carb nutrition, foods containing starch and sugar are eliminated. This means that all sweets, potatoes, rice, bread, white flour products and drinks containing sugar disappear from the menu. This article shows the advantages of the low carb diet as part of a weight reducing diet.

Advantages of the Low Carb diet to lose body weight

Some myths revolve around the low carb diet. Some swear by the rapid weight loss, others demonize this form of nutrition. The advantages of the low carb diet are scientifically proven.

While the intake of carbohydrates is drastically reduced, foods containing fat and protein are explicitly allowed. Instead of carbohydrates, the body draws energy from sources of fat and protein.

A low-carb diet provides for an amount of carbohydrates below 100 grams per day. It is strictly recommended to eat a low-carbohydrate diet in the evening to promote fat burning overnight.

Not only rapid weight loss but many health-promoting results can be achieved with the low carb diet.

The following 5 points explain in detail the advantages of the Low Carb diet.

1. high weight loss

In contrast to a low-fat diet, the low carb diet means that you lose weight much faster at the beginning of the diet. This is largely due to the fact that one gram of carbohydrate binds a good 2.6 grams of water. One of the great advantages of the low carb diet is that excess water is disposed of from the body. This contributes to accelerated weight loss.

2. lowering the blood sugar level

The carbohydrates are broken down into short-chain glucose molecules when consumed. These cause the blood sugar level to rise, which in some cases can lead to insulin peaks. An insulin peak causes the blood sugar level to shoot up, which in the worst case can lead to type II diabetes. A low carb diet can help to stabilize the blood sugar level.

3. improvement of the metabolism

One of the other benefits of the low carb diet, is the improvement of metabolism. By better satisfying the fat and protein rich diet, it keeps the blood sugar level constantly low. As a result, recurrent attacks of ravenous appetite and the desire for snacks for in-between times are eliminated.

The metabolism needs more energy to convert protein into energy than to digest carbohydrates. Therefore, for the same amount of calories, less remains to be stored as fat. The metabolism works more and uses more energy to form the glucose from the fatty and amino acids.

4. lowering blood pressure

High blood pressure is the trigger for serious diseases in the western world. The benefits of the low carb diet are also reflected in the reduction of blood pressure. The risk of a stroke, heart attack or kidney failure is thus significantly reduced. The blood pressure benefits directly from weight loss through the low carb diet.

5. more energy

Many people who lost weight due to the benefits of the low carb diet reported more energy and a better mood after changing to low carb. They were more energetic after a diet, had a more alert mind and fewer mood swings. Some have reported a significantly better skin texture.


The low carb diet provides for rapid weight loss by reducing carbohydrates. The daily consumption of carbohydrates has led to modern diseases such as diabetes. The goal of low carb is a conscious reduction, not the banishment of carbohydrates. When choosing a low carb diet, one should follow this principle. It is called low carb and not zero carb diet. The reason for weight gain is not the carbohydrates, but the calories. And the calories are found in all main nutrients.




6 amazing ways to generate more leads through email marketing

Regardless of what many people think, email marketing is still an effective way to generate leads and even conversions. Every day, around 90 billion emails are sent worldwide for business purposes and there is nothing to suggest that this number will soon fall. Every business owner should spend some time trying to get the attention of their potential customers through email marketing. This approach is usually cheaper than other strategies and can give so much back – and maybe even a little more, depending on the target group. The following article shows ten amazing ways entrepreneurs can generate more leads with email marketing.

# 1: Ask for permission

To start with, you will of course need the permission of your target group so that you can send messages to your potential customers at all. This request itself is already a way to generate leads. After all, prospects first have to fill out the forms on your website so that you can get their email addresses and send out promotional material. Once this process is complete, you can already assume that your potential customers are interested in staying in touch with you. This is a good sign for future conversions.

# 2: The offer is something special

Probably no one goes to the trouble of opening an e-mail that does not provide them with new information. Your readers will simply delete it or keep it for later – which means they will never read the message. So if you want your email marketing to have an impact on your audience, you need to offer them something special. It can be an exclusive offer, a free offer, a discount or an early bird price.

# 3: Manageable personalizations

You have probably read that you should always personalize your e-mails. The most common way to do this is by addressing your audience with their names. Although it may sound reasonable at first, personalization may not be the best method. The thing is that many experts say that too much familiarity sounds wrong and uncomfortable too soon. Especially when it is your first contact. What is much more important is high-quality and relevant content that appeals to your readers, not just any well-meant platitudes.

# 4: No more than three offers

Retail stores have the biggest problems with this issue. After all, they have a wide range of products and don’t want to waste the opportunity to advertise their items. When retailers build their email marketing, they often tend to promote multiple products with one message. This approach competes with the weak attention span of readers. So it’s best to send only three offers per message. More would only confuse your potential customers.

# 5: Create a weekly newsletter

Even if you are not familiar with the news business, you can still benefit from emails to your mailing list with tips and articles about your industry. A weekly newsletter is good for your business in two ways:

1.) If you send high-quality information to your target group, you will soon be considered an expert in your industry. The confidence of your target group will grow.
2.) You remain in the memory of your readers.

# 6: Find the best time of day for your newsletter

You probably already have a list of statistics that tells you what time and day of the week you should send your emails. This is a good start. However, you should ignore your analyses for a while and draw your own conclusions. The thing is that every business owner reads the same statistics as you do. And they will all want to send their emails at the same time and on the same day as you. You have probably noticed the problem that arises: a big competition for attention. That means, depending on the habits of your target group, you might want to try an unconventional schedule and find out when is the ideal time of day for your newsletter.


Overview: What the new iPad Pro 2020 and MacBook Pro 2020

A few days ago Apple introduced three new products, which will be launched this week. We’ll give you an overview, whereby our main focus will of course be on the new iPad Pro and MacBook Pro 2020. Have fun reading and maybe even shopping?

The new iPad Pro

The new iPad Pro is probably the most exciting of the updates, which is why we’re starting right away. The new Pro first comes with a new processor, the A12Z. Unfortunately, it is still as fast as the A12X could have been and it’s certainly not an A13 processor. But we should be satisfied with it. At least it brings a slight improvement.

We also get something really new: a LIDAR sensor. This sensor uses beams to measure how far away an object is and can thus measure space in three dimensions. This technology can be used later for better photos and already today AR apps benefit from it, such as Apple’s own Measure app.

We also got a keyboard called Magic Keyboard, which actually includes a trackpad and turns the iPad into a laptop. The gestures and mouse support was added in iPadOS 13.4, which we got yesterday.

The new MacBook Air

With MacBook Air, Apple is continuing what it began with the 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019: In other words, a LIDAR sensor keyboard and better processors. That’s the new MacBook Air, and it even comes at the same price and with more memory in the basic SSD. Isn’t it great? Well, we still don’t recommend the basic version, because users have often said that it doesn’t perform well enough. Especially in our editorial office, we have a case of the 2019 MacBook Air that is really struggling with the i3.

But if you are only editing some Word documents and are otherwise on the Internet, then it will be enough for you.

The new Mac Mini

The new Mac Mini is quickly explained. It simply has more memory under the hood, so it’s not even really a new product. But we thought we’d let you know anyway, because there will always be buyers of the Mac Mini among you.

Out of Luck: 10 Betting Mistakes We’re All Guilty Of

On paper, sports betting might seem rather straightforward, but if it really was as simple as picking the right winner, wouldn’t every bookmaker be out of business by now? The truth is, the players themselves are their own worst enemy when it comes to betting. Here’s a look at some of the biggest and most common mistakes players are guilty of, that keep them from laughing all the way to the bank.

Chasing Losses

Should you lose a bet, the best thing you can do is accept it as part of the game and move on. Trying to win back what you lost to the bookmaker will likely lead to even more disappointment. Keep your cool and go into your next bet with a level head for best results. Find more eSports betting sites under

Over-Reliance on Outside Advice

There are a lot of awesome betting communities out there where you can get tips and advice from experienced, knowledgeable players. The thing is, no one is right 100% of the time, and if they were, they probably wouldn’t make that fact public.

Trust in yourself and your own instincts because, at the end of the day, it’s your bet on the line.

Betting Under The Influence

There are many things alcohol doesn’t mix well with, and betting is up at the top of the list. While drinking, you will find it difficult to stick to your strategies and might end up making betting mistakes that wouldn’t happen while you’re sober.

The Betting Jack-of-all-trades

Successful punters know that you can’t be an expert in everything. Figure out which sports you have the best knowledge of and focus your betting strategy on them. Bookmakers have expert analyzers looking at every game before they set the odds, so you can’t expect to beat a dozen different specialists with your spread out bets. Pick one or two and stick to them.That’s the way to clear a profit against the house pros.

Not Betting Value

If you want to achieve profit in the long term, you have to consider the concept of betting value. Betting value refers to betting only when the odds and probability are on your side. This isn’t easy, as the higher the value, the bigger the bookmaker’s mistake has to be for you to win.

Deciding if a bet has value for you is the hard part. It calls for a great deal of knowledge on the sport, as well as a good head for odds and probabilities, as well as the discipline to analyze bets rationally.

Poor Record-Keeping

Understandably, whether true or not, every sports bettor you meet will tell you that they are making money. That’s just human nature. The problem comes in when players begin to lie to themselves. See, every player who wishes to make a profit from betting needs to keep accurate records of all their plays – whether it’s a win or a loss.

The true pros do this honestly so that they can see what works and what doesn’t. It’s just good business.

Betting With Your Heart

To be honest, it’s quite possible to make bad betting judgments while completely sober. A team you like might have a game, and so you place a bet on them even when the odds are against you. Big mistake. When you allow your feelings to dictate your betting strategy, you’re bound to lose in the end, and you won’t have learned anything useful for next time.

Making Things Too Complicated

There are no shortcuts in the world of betting. The house will always have the advantage at the end of the day, no matter what anybody else tells you. Strategies such as the Martingale, where a player makes each progressive bet twice as large as the preceding losing bet until they get a big win that covers all the previous losses only work if you’ve got a nearly limitless stack of cash. I bet you don’t. Manage your bet limits with sensibility and stick to your strategy to avoid getting wiped out experimenting with wonder systems that will ultimately let you down.

Misplaced Loyalty

When it comes to bookmakers and banks, the principles of loyalty, admirable as they are, don’t apply. Stick with one bookmaker if they always offer you the best deals and terms, otherwise, you shouldn’t think twice about changing things up.

Credit Betting

Credit, whether it’s used to buy something or place a bet, is rarely a healthy way of doing things. It makes you more likely to make poor judgments as you rush to pay back the money, which might sink you even further into a hole. Stick to your strategy, only bet with cash you can afford to lose, and you’ll be fine whatever the outcome.

Our Human Nature

As you’ll have noticed, most of the mistakes listed are more or less as a result of basic human nature. For success, you’ll have to develop the discipline to resist these tendencies while working on your sports knowledge, analytical skills, as well as emotional coolness. Remember that when it comes to betting, you’re running a marathon, not dashing a hundred meters, so keep it steady.

Massive Clash in Madrid

In terms of international football, it does not get much bigger than a match between Spain and Italy. Both teams have excellent international pedigree and it was a shock when they were drawn together in the same World Cup qualifying group.  Only one team can go through automatically, meaning one of Spain and Italy will be in the playoff round.

The Spanish have qualified for every World Cup finals since 1978 and won the World Cup in 2010.  They are aiming to make up for their display when defending their title in 2014, as they were eliminated at the group stage.

Italy have won the World Cup four times and their last victory came in Germany at the 2006 World Cup.  They have qualified for every World Cup finals since 1962 and a World Cup without Italy does not seem right.

Spain Form

Spain are currently top of UEFA World Cup qualifying Group G with 16 points from their 6 games played.  They have won 5 and drawn 1, with the point coming in the away match against Italy.

Spain’s superior goal difference is what separates them from Italy at the top of the group and they have scored an average of 3.5 goals per match during qualifying.  Spain have also been tight defensively, conceding just 3 times.

The Spanish have a fantastic World Cup qualifying record and have remained undefeated in their previous 59 World Cup qualifying games.  You must go back to 1993 and the away match in Denmark to find the last time Spain lost a World Cup qualifier.

Italy Form

The Italians come into this match sitting second in the group on goal difference from Spain.  Both teams have 16 points having won 5 and drawn 1 of their 6 games but Spain have a 4-goal advantage when it comes to goal difference.

Including friendlies, Italy have won their last 5 matches and conceded just a single goal across all 5 games.  They will be hoping their defence can produce a similar performance in this game and if so, they should claim at least point.

Italy have remained undefeated in their last 33 World Cup qualifying games, with their last defeat coming at Slovenia in 2004.

Team News

Spain have chosen to recall veteran striker David Villa to the squad, who is currently playing his football in Major League Soccer.  However, Alvaro Morata is expected to get the nod in attack with support from David Silva in midfield.  Sergio Ramos will captain the team.

Italy have several well-known faces in their defensive set-up and Gianluigi Buffon is set to win his 170th cap in this match.  He will be joined in defence by the uncompromising trio of Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, and Leonardo Bonucci.

Top Betting Tips

This is an extremely difficult match to call and both teams will be very wary of not wanting to lose this game.  That could lead to a tactical match and the draw is available at 13/5 with Bet365.

Italy have been improving on their defensive record in recent games and will not be committing too many men forward in this match.  Spain will be expected to take the game to Italy being the home team but don’t expect many clear-cut chances, especially early in the match.  Under 2.5 goals is 27/20 with Bet365.

With undefeated records like both these teams possess, neither loses games easily and if it is going to be a close match the 1-1 correct score, like in the reverse fixture, is tempting at 6/1 with William Hill. More Information about William Hill in this William Hill review.

Online Casino Safely

Most reputable websites online have multiple security measures in place to keep your financial transactions safe and secure.  If you are interested in playing games at an online casino, you should research in order to find a safe and legitimate casino that has a good reputation for security.  Here are some tips for finding a safe site and basic information about depositing funds into your account.

How to Deposit Money into an Online Casino Safely

Online casinos are a popular place to spend hours having fun and winning money.  As with any website that includes financial transactions, safety and security should be of the utmost importance.  Fortunately, if you know what to look for, it is easy to have a fun, safe, and secure experience.

In order to play games at online casinos, you first need find a safe and secure online casino.  The best way to find an online casino is by searching for “online casino” in your favorite search engine.  Once you’ve found a site or two, do a search for the specific site plus words such as “scam” or “rip off”.  You can browse message forums, customer experience websites, and complaint boards in order to figure out whether or not you are dealing with a safe online casino.  Many sites put together reviews for these casinos and do this hard work for you.

Once you’ve found a casino, you need to make an account.  The process for making an account changes across websites, but they are generally similar.  You will need to input some basic information such as your name, e-mail address, age, and location, and choose a username and password.  Afterwards you might be asked to confirm your e-mail address before you can begin playing.  Once your account is activated, you can log in and have access to all the website’s features.  Many websites allow you to create an account for free even if you have to pay to play games, but some websites will require a fee for membership in general.

If you are playing for money, your next step is to deposit money.  A reputable online casino will accept money through multiple forms, such as credit or debit cards, e-wallets, and sometimes cash and money wires.  The easiest way to deposit money at a single website is by the use of credit and debit cards.  Using your credit or debit card to play at online casinos works the same way as it would for any website – you simply choose the amount of credits you wish to purchase, input your information, and press submit.  Then your credits are added to your account and you can use them as needed.

The easiest way to deposit money if you plan on visiting multiple online casinos is through the use of e-wallets, or third party services.  E-wallets allow you to keep your money on one website, and then use it to play anywhere the e-wallet is accepted.  Similarly, there are third party websites that allow you to buy online casino chips, and then use those credits at participating casinos.  This method is easier because you only have one location to keep track of your spending, and you only have to input your financial information once.  It protects you from scam websites because you do not have to give them your information, and if you find out you do not like a particular casino, your money isn’t locked into that account.
