The museum for photography

the museum for photography at jenbenstrabe in berlin has been pictures of the helmut newton foundation since 2004.

The museum for photography is located directly at the train station zoo. The imposing building from 1909 was built in origionary militar purposes, it was a casino for the officers of the empire. This is still evidenced by the emperor wilhelm ii dedicated inscription to the front of the building. After two lost world wars, the house turned into the possession of the berlin senate and is used for exhibition purposes. The location directly at zoo station was committed to helmut newton with special memories. At this station he had to say goodbye in 1938 on the flight in front of the nazis of his parents.

The u.S. President’s impulsive decision to withdraw u.S. Troops from northern syria gambles away political trust even among close allies; the pentagon warns turkey

The withdrawal of u.S. Troops from territory controlled by the syrian kurds did not come as a complete surprise. Donald trump had already announced this in april 2018, but abandoned it due to the poison gas attack that followed shortly thereafter, which the u.S., along with the uk and france, responded to by bombing syria’s allegedly remaining chemical weapons program. Already at that time it was clear for the kurds that they cannot rely on the usa – in the end it was also a signal to all allies that there are no liabilities with donald trump.

Hyundai i30cw with 1.6-liter diesel on test

Hyundai i30cw with 1.6-liter diesel on test

Dubrovnik (croatia), 2. April 2008 – in the compact class, there are now a number of suppliers. No wonder, after all, this vehicle segment is the most popular in germany. This makes the relatively small number of station wagons offered in the golf class all the more surprising – one or the other manufacturer is probably afraid that a compact loadmaster will give rise to internal competition for larger models. From the chevrolet nubira wagon to the vw golf variant, there are just nine compact station wagon models in germany. So far, there has not been a hyundai among them. This is changing with the i30cw, the counterpart to the largely identical cee’d sporty wagon from sister company kia. We tested the newcomer with the 116-hp 1.6-liter diesel for you.

Plenty of space in the rear, less in the trunk

The station wagon is 23 centimeters longer than the sedan and measures just under 4.50 meters. The proportions are similar to those of the golf. Unlike the wolfsburg, hyundai’s compact station wagon also has a longer wheelbase – albeit only by five centimeters. As a result, there is a little more space in the station wagon for passengers and luggage. In terms of knee and headroom in the cheap seats, the i30cw is fully satisfactory. However, the trunk is not very coarse: it holds 415 to 1395 liters and thus offers about 100 liters less than the vw golf variant, which transports 505 to 1495 liters. Even more cargo space is offered by the skoda octavia combi with 580 to 1620 liters. The i30cw’s loading sill is 61 centimeters high, which is about the middle of the road. It is somewhat disturbing that you do not find a completely flat load floor after folding down the back seats: only the backrests, but not the seat cushions, can be folded down. The area around the back seats rises slightly. But there is no loading threshold that could interfere with the unloading of heavy objects. Also the hatch opens sufficiently far upwards.

More and more massive black holes are discovered

Black holes fascinate astronomers as well as the general public. Spectacularly they are born from dying massive stars, and like vacuum cleaners they pull everything from the surroundings into their black maw. They are regions of space-time that devour everything that comes too close to them. Not even a single ray of light can escape them. What comes to the edge of the devouring monsters disappears never to be seen again beyond their event horizon.

Mobile Workstations: Thinkpads with Intel Tiger Lake-H45 and Fleets Nvidia Gpus

Lenovo has explored the 2021 generation of mobile thinkpad workstations consisting of three notebooks: the p1 gen 4, p15 gen 2 and p17 gen 2. In all three seats mobilprocessors from intel’s tiger lake-h45 series, optional in the form of core i models or xeon cpus with up to eight cpu cores and 5.0 ghz turbo clock frequency.

Concrete processor names betrayed lenovo not yet, but the specifications speak for the core i9-11950h and xeon w-11955m. For this purpose, all 2021 thinkpads nvidias rtx a5000 joins 16 gb graphics memory – the professional execution of the geforce rtx 3080 with 6144 shader cores. The ram depending on the model up to 64 or 128 gb4-3200, optional with ecc error correction. Windows 10 (home or pro) or various linux distributions are on pci express-4.0-ssds preinstalled.

16: 10 format and 5g mobile

The thinkpad p1 gen 4 receive a 16-inch coarse ips display in 16: 10 format instead of a 15.6 inch 16: 9 screen. Extractive configurations set a touchscreen with 3840 × 2400 pixels, a maximum brightness of 600 cd / m² and a complete adobe rgb color space cover.

Driver’s escalation will cause damage from 50 euros

Even small accident damage like a broken dub mirror can have a nightplay in court if the polluter makes unauthorized dust. "From a property damage in the amount of 50 euros, the criminal offense of the driver escape is filled", explores volker lempp, traffic rights expert at the auto club europa (ace). Then threaten a fine or in severe falling up to three years imprisonment. For property damage under 50 euros, a cursee driver does not make it punishable, so lempp. But he must expect 35 euros bub money when he is still caught later.

If, for example, a motorist damages a parked car, he is obliged according to the criminal code to wait at the accident site on the vehicle owner. Is no time, advice lempp to call the police. If the causer leaves only its contact data at the demolished car, this can be designed as a driver’s flight, emphasizes the ace traffic rightlist. To clamp a note behind the windscreen wiper, are not enough.

One reason that the ie of driver escape is currently being promoted, is that the public prosecutor’s office hannover is currently being determined against the designated new fdp general secretar patrick doring for potential driver escape. In the middle of november he should have damaged in hanover with his private car the visual mirror of another vehicle, but then continued to continue.

Artificial haute, living artworks and biohacking for burgers

In the age of biotechnologies, the boundaries between the natural and the artificial are shifting; technological achievements continuously and persistently offer new possibilities for genetically manipulating living beings and designing them according to human ideas. In this context, it is interesting to take a look at what trends there are in contemporary art on the subject of biotechnology and how artists make use of life-science technologies for themselves. Last but not least, there are also efforts to make life-science methods in the form of a "do-it-yourself" biology for citizens to experience and use.

Google and fiat chrysler: cooperation on autonomous cars

It’s official: fiat chrysler will be the first major automaker to test google’s technology for self-driving cars. As a first step, the companies will jointly install google technology in about 100 hybrid-powered cars based on chrysler’s pacifica minivan. Google will integrate the necessary sensors and computers, and chrysler engineers will adapt the vehicles to them, it was announced tuesday in new york.

Google has long been on the lookout for partners in the auto industry who could use its technology, developed over the past seven years, for self-driving vehicles. Talks with general motors broke down last year over differences about data use, the financial service reported bloomberg. At the turn of the year, there was speculation about a collaboration with ford, but the company instead announced it would step up development of its own technology.

While no partner appeared to be in sight, google executives consistently stressed that the internet company did not want to become a carmaker itself, and expressed confidence that there would eventually be collaborations. Fiat chrysler has been considered a likely google partner for some time, because the company is not as far along with the development of its own technology for autonomous driving as other major players.

An increase in the investment budget from converted 104 billion to 125 billion euros samsung had already been explored. Now it is clear that the whole thing is believed to build a plan sudkorea, sadly from seoul a modern semiconductor bacon.
