Theories Abound About the Origins of a Mysterious Monolith Discovered in the Utah Desert | Smart News

A survey crew from Utah’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) flew low in a helicopter over the state’s Red Rocks Country last week, scanning the craggy landscape. The team was working with the Division of Wildlife Resources to count bighorn sheep, which roam in this secluded part of the desert in southeastern Utah.

But instead of the sure-footed climbers, something else caught the researchers’ attention: a shiny metal monolith protruding from the red rocks. The strange, three-sided structure stood out against the surrounding desert and resembled something out of a science fiction movie.

“One of the biologists is the one who spotted it and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” pilot Bret Hutchings tells local television station KSL’s Andrew Adams. “He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’ And I was like, ‘what?’ And he’s like, ‘There’s this thing back there—we’ve got

Europe’s Largest Tech Conference to Return as In-Person Event in 2021 | Technology News

LISBON (Reuters) – Europe’s biggest technology conference, the Web Summit, will return to Lisbon in full force as a massive in-person event in 2021 after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to go fully online this year.

“The venue is booked,” the conference’s founder Paddy Cosgrave told Reuters on Wednesday in an interview. “I think by November (next year) the Web Summit will be happening in-person and I can’t wait.”

The event, which moved from Dublin to the Portuguese capital in 2016, attracts about 70,000 participants every year, drawing speakers from leading global tech companies and startups, as well as politicians.

But due to the outbreak, which has forced the cancellation or postponement of many major events, this year’s Web Summit will be held online next week.

It will be able to host 100,000 attendees online on its own conference platform and hundreds of speakers will join the event, including the

Donations benefit Salina Tech programs – News – Salina Journal

The Salina Area Technical College has received two major donations recently that came from members of the College’s Foundation Board. One donation is providing equipment for the machine tool and diesel programs, and the other is a new car for the college’s vehicle pool.

The new vehicle is a 2020 Chevy Malibu that was donated by Holm Automotive, a longtime Abilene auto dealer that recently opened a location in Salina. Dealership owner Tim Holm joined the Salina Tech Foundation board in September.

The Malibu, with a value of $20,000, is a welcome addition to the college’s vehicle pool, said college president Greg Nichols.

“We have employees traveling as much as ever — to area high schools to teach classes, visit business and industry partners, and attend recruiting events,” Nichols said. “Our vehicles are getting older, and this donation frees up $20,000 we can use instead for equipment and supplies in

Analysis: Feeling Lucky? Bitcoiners Who Missed Rally Express Relief and Regret | Top News

LONDON (Reuters) – Arianna O’Dell, a 30-year-old entrepreneur and songwriter based in New York City, had a tumultuous four-year journey in cryptocurrency before selling her investments in February.

During her rollercoaster ride, bitcoin prices swung from under $1,000 to nearly $20,000. O’Dell may not have made optimal decisions about when to buy or sell, and missed out on the recent rally – but says she doesn’t regret that.

Investing $2,705 worth of proceeds into her business was better than enduring the stress of daily fluctuations, even though the price has since doubled, she said.

“Honestly I’ve had more luck in Vegas than I’ve had with cryptocurrencies,” O’Dell said in an interview.

She is part of a relatively new class of retail investors who joined the crypto market years ago, helping propel bitcoin’s price to a high of nearly $20,000. Not willing to stomach the subsequent volatility and having lost hope

Xbox chief Phil Spencer gave an interview with The Verge as part of an hour-long podcast. There’s a fair bit in there and The Verge helpfully has an edited transcript.

  • A few points! One is the first confirmation, I think, that Microsoft sells the console hardware at a loss. It’s no surprise; that’s been the case for most consoles over the past …forever? But it’s confirmed!
  • Spencer is disappointed that expected launch title Halo Infinite was delayed to 2021, not serving as a powerful reason to pick-up the Xbox Series X/S. But Microsoft couldn’t sell more, because of supply chain problems. And it’s the same for Sony, Nvidia, and AMD, all seemingly

GLOBAL MARKETS-Vaccine news boosts commodities and emerging market assets

* AstraZeneca vaccine news drives risk-on approach

* Mexican peso hits strongest since March; EEM highest since 2018

* Gold hits four-month low (Updates prices)

NEW YORK, Nov 23 (Reuters) – Stocks brushed against last week’s record high on Monday before trading little changed and an index of commodity prices touched its highest since March as more vaccine-positive news gave investors hope economic activity could resume globally at a faster clip than has been thought.

AstraZeneca said its COVID-19 vaccine, cheaper to make, easier to distribute and faster to scale-up than its rivals, could be as much as 90% effective.

“This means we have a vaccine for the world,” said Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford University vaccine group that developed the drug.

Assets from emerging markets reacted strongly to the news, as it allays concerns over the distribution logistics of a vaccine for developing countries.
