Apple products under pricing pressure as new 15% tariffs drop Sunday

Apple products under pricing pressure as new 15% tariffs drop Sunday A new 15% tariff on Chinese imports will go in effect just after midnight Sunday, placing levies on hundreds of household goods and consumer tech, including a bevy of Apple products. The tariffs, put in place by President Donald Trump as part of an escalating tit-for-tat trade war with China, were entered into the Federal Register on Friday. Apple, the largest U.S. technology company by market cap, has its products assembled in China by Foxconn and then ships them to consumers all over the world. The Apple Airpods, Apple Watch and accompanying Apple Watch bands and the Apple Homepod are all products subject to the higher tariffs beginning Sunday.

Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada. Among the 13 fast radio bursts, known as FRBs, was a very unusual repeating signal , coming from the same source about 1.5 billion light years away .

China ’ s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) has detected a repeating fast radio burst (FRB) The signal came from a dwarf galaxy located three billion light years from Earth. Between August 30 and September 3, FAST recorded dozens of pulses from the FRB.

China's largest telescope has detected more than 100 mysterious radio pulses coming from a source around three billion light years from the Earth.

The strange signals are so-called fast radio bursts — rapid pulses of energy that come from unknown but high-energy sources out in space.

Researchers at the space observatory are continuing to monitor the signals, with the hope that further analysis will indicate how these radio pulses are being generated.

Weather Agencies See Risk to Future Storm Forecasting From 5G Weather agencies are warning that signals from new 5G mobile networks will make it harder to predict and track deadly storms, as the fiercest hurricane in more than 80 years tore across the Bahamas to threaten the U.S. East Coast. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The global mobile industry is pushing back against meteorologists, who say radio waves from the fast cellular networks will interfere with the ability of weather satellites to detect resonance from water particles.

The latest signals to be detected reached Earth from a galaxy 1.5 billion light years away . The most likely explanation is that they were created by powerful Where the FRBs come from is not known - although they are thought to emanate from sources billions of light years away outside our galaxy

Astronomers searching for signals from alien civilisations have detected 15 powerful, repeated radio pulses coming from a dwarf galaxy 3 billion light years About two dozen fast radio bursts have been detected previously. Because they last only a few milliseconds and radio telescopes can only

The mysterious signals were detected by China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope — also known as FAST — and are currently being cross-checked and analysed, Chinese Academy of Sciences researchers report.

The telescope was studying a fast radio burst source known as FRB121102, which was first spotted in the sky by the Arecibo Observatory, in Puerto Rico, in 2015.

Astronomers at FAST have detected more than 100 bursts coming from FRB121102 since late August — the largest number of the pulses ever detected to date.

Fast radio bursts are tiny pulses of radio waves that last less than a few milliseconds and are the brightest radio phenomena known.

+ Astronomers are one step closer to understanding the source of mysterious radio waves that have been detected intermittently over the last decade. Story continues below. Fast Radio Bursts, or FRBs, have puzzled scientists since they were first discovered.

Some scientists think these “fast radio bursts,” or FRBs, come from natural sources, such as Others think they could be signals from alien civilizations. One thing’ s for sure: FRBs are more common In the latest discovery, scientists working as part of a $ 100 -million initiative known as Breakthrough

It is believed that the bursts are generated by a presently unidentified but high-energy process out in space.

The first fast radio burst was identified in 2007, based on data collected by the  Parkes radio dish in New South Wales, Australia back in 2001.

Astronomers hope that studying the repeated bursts detected by FAST might help to determine exactly from where fast radio bursts come and how they are generated.

Located in a natural depression in the landscape of southwest China's Guizhou Province, near Jinke Village, the FAST observatory was completed in September 2016 and will start routine operations this month.

It is the largest and most sensitive radio observatory ever constructed.

The telescope's considerable observational power will be used by astronomers from various nations to study such phenomena as exoplanets, gravitational waves and ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.

A mysterious signal that has confounded scientists for years has been traced to a spot in the sky more than 3 billion light - years away . There are currently 18 known FRBs, but they were all detected by non-specialist radio telescopes that were unable to narrow down their origin to a precise

China ' s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) has detected a repeating fast radio burst Fewer than 100 FRBs have been detected internationally to date. Analysis of data later located the source of the signal coming from a dwarf galaxy three billion light years away .

However, the addition of a highly-sensitive secondary system to the giant telescope has enabled it to detect fast radio bursts with high efficiency and in real time at the same time as undertaking over observation tasks.

It is expected that FAST will allow researchers to pinpoint the origins of these mysterious pulses with significantly greater accuracy.

Researchers at FAST will continue to monitor burst from FRB121102 to gather as much information on the source of these pulses as possible.

Annual Investments in Robots Rose to World Record $16.5 Billion.
Robot shipments are expected to jump 39% from 2018 to 2022 from a record annual sales level of $16.5 billion last year, according to the World Robotics report. More than a third of global installations were in China and the top five countries hold 74% of the market. Japan, Korea, U.S and Germany round out this group. China’s investment in robots reached $5.4 billion last year.
