Like it or not we’re rapidly moving into the world of 5G, or 5th generation cellular telecommunications. Why? Because the frequency bandwidths used currently by cell phones and similar technologies are becoming saturated. And also because we live in a world where people want more.
5G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) that goes with it, promises to give us more.
But more what?
Super-Fast Download Speeds
5G and IoT promises to connect us in our homes, schools, workplaces, cities, parks and open spaces to over a trillion objects around the world. It promises cars that drive themselves, washing machines that order their own washing powder and softener plus of course super fast downloads and streaming.
According to Fortune.com 5G will support at least 100 billion devices and will be 10 to 100 times faster than current 4G technology. (4G was already about 10 times faster than 3G).
It’ll bring download speed up to 10 Gigabits per second. This would let us have an entire building of people send each other data in close to no time, thus improving productivity.
What is 5G?
5G offers mind-blowing data capabilities, practically unrestricted call volumes and near infinite data broadcast. It does this by 5G using largely untapped bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, as well as some lower and mid-range frequencies.

If you haven't heard of Demna Gvasalia, you will. He's breaking fashion norms with cutting edge design and neon colors.
Are you interested in fashion? Does the name Demna Gvasalia ring a bell? If you have never heard that name before, the chances are good that you will soon.
The 38-year-old Georgian fashion designer is one of the up and coming people in the fashion industry. With a background in design at Louis Vuitton and Maison Martin Margiela, Gvasalia has the pedigree to stand out from his contemporaries. But what makes Demna Gvasalia such an important figure in the industry?
Read on to learn more about this designer who is taking the fashion world by storm!
His Impressive Background
Gvasalia has a decorated background in the fashion industry that makes him prime to be a leader in the industry.
He was fascinated by fashion from a young age while growing up in the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic in the Soviet Union during the 1980s and 1990s.
As a young adult, Gvasalia's passion for fashion brought him to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts located in Antwerp, Belgium. While he studied at the art academy, he developed a knack for creating unique designs that were well-received by his peers.
Shortly after he completed his studies, he was brought on as the design leader for Masion Martin Margiela and later, Louis Vuitton.
His Current Projects
Gvasalia has performed so well early in his career that he has landed other top positions at some of the leading fashion brands worldwide.
In October 2015, he was named as the creative director of Balenciaga, a Spanish luxury brand. Gvasalia got to work on creating his first collection for the brand, which was revealed to the world at the 2016 Paris Fashion Week.

In addition to his position at Balenciaga, Gvasalia is also the head designer at VETEMENTS. Gvasalia founded the brand in 2014 and is joined by a group of designer friends as they design unique clothing and shoes that have a wide appeal across different cultures.
Although the brand was headquartered in Paris, Gvasalia announced that it would be moving to Zurich, Switzerland in 2017.
Wrapping Up: Demna Gvasalia and Fashion
Demna Gvasalia is a name that's become synonymous with fashion in only a short period of time.
Despite Gvasalia's success, he's a designer who is not content on resting on his past achievements. It is perhaps that passion to push the envelope in the industry that helps him continue to design new fashions and create mass appeal.
One way that Gvasalia is unique when compared to his peers is his use of luxury materials on otherwise mundane objects.
For example, he is known for using neon colors on hourglass skirts and experimenting with the way the slits are placed on the garment.

(AA) A government-funded study says radiation from mobile phones can change the way brains process sugar.
Is that a big deal? The scientists aren't sure, according to media giant CNN Health's (fake news) report. But our story has some scary tidbits.
Like this quote, from Dr. Nora Volkow, the Journal of the American Medical Association study's lead author and a neuroscientist at the National Institutes of Health:
"The human brain is sensitive to the electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones, but for the brain to be impacted the cell phone has to be close to the antenna. So keep your brain away from the antenna."
In layman's terms: "It's better to be safe than sorry," she says.
Despite years of research, there's still no conclusive proof cell phone radiation causes cancer and other health problems in the brain. Studies, some of them funded by the wireless industry, have produced contradictory findings. But the nearly ubiquitous devices haven't been proven 100% safe either. So, for the sake of argument, let's say you are worried about this and you do want to "keep your brain away from the antenna."
How do you actually do that?

(AA) The Wendelstein 7-X is the most efficient nuclear fusion reactor scientists have ever created. Some are asking what that could mean for the future of energy?

There has been a revived energy revolution movement going on around the world over the past 20 years and strongest in the past year, that has not been covered or reported by mainstream press, established scientific journals or university research publications. Most of the discoveries have been made by curious, ingenious minds, who on many occasions have observed experimental results in cold fusion, superconductivity, and magnetic motors which appear to violate present laws of physics, chemistry and electrodynamics. A term has been used to describe such phenomena, is called over-unity energy or free energy, which in many cases means getting more energy out of a system or reaction (magnetic motor or cold fusion reaction) than appears to be put into it.
A better explanation is that excess energy is being accessed from as yet not completely explained source. (Note: An atom bomb is an over-unity device which gets a tremendous amount of dirty energy out, in the form of harmful radiation, than is needed to trigger the reaction.)
The first question that usually pops into a skeptic's mind is that if the technology is for real and discoveries have been made, such as Pons & Flieschman's cold fusion cell or Rory Johnson's fusion magnetic motor, why has it not been reported or mass produced for use by our energy-hungry world? The answer is suppression. What do we mean by suppression? Suppression can be an active type -- where a corporation or oil company or OPEC, who does not want the invention marketed, will blow up or destroy the lab and the invention and threaten to kill the inventor if he again attempts to market the revolutionary device. The other type of suppression is the passive type where a competing company, who has big bucks, such as some of the major oil companies, will come in and buy out a patent with no intention of bringing it to market until the demand for oil greatly exceeds the supply and gas prices soar, then they will start marketing a 100 mpg carburetor for ICE (Internal Combustion Engines).
Other types of passive suppression include universities which are receiving big funding from oil or nuclear establishment sources, refusing to do research, or muzzling bright professors (by withholding tenure) from publishing theories and results as to the what, how's, and whys of these over-unity motors and cold fusion reactions. Or the example where a Patent office refuses to grant patents in revolutionary technology, claiming perpetual motion machines, s they see them, aren't patentable, or if they are patentable, that they can place a secrecy order or gag order on the patent, which prohibits the inventor from disclosing any information to anyone for such disclosure might be detrimental to national security.
