1…………> 1st Digital Pill: Stand By

If you are one of the “Einsteins” who forget to take the daily pills, don’t sweat, help is underway. The 1st “smart digital” pill has been approved in the US for patients suffering from schizophrenia and related diseases, incorporating a “smart” sensor made of silicon, copper and magnesium that interacts with your stomach acids and then sends a message to an OS device app, which in turn may remind you, or share information with health providers of your choice.


2…………> Sarmat: Putin’s “Wild Card”

“All the practical, scientific, technical and manufacture-related issues have already been overcome. The facilities that are necessary for [the manufacturer] of the number of [Sarmat] missiles ordered by the Defense Ministry are ready,” Minister Borisov told the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper in support of a statement by President Vladimir Putin that Russia had started the mass production of the hypersonic weapon Avangard, capable of travelling intercontinental distances in dense layers of the atmosphere at speeds faster than Mach 20.

The Avangard system, mentioned by the president, is well-tested and capable of striking aircraft carriers, destroyers and cruisers of a potential enemy. 



3…………> Fateful Till The End: Homeless Man’s Dog

Since the dawn of time, people have cherished the friendship between man and his dog, immortalized by the touching story of a Japanese pooch named “Hachiko” that famously waited almost 10 years at a train station for his owner who died after leaving it on the platform in the 1920s, with his devotion commemorated by a bronze statue that stands at Shibuya Station in Tokyo. 

Now yet another loving, devoted and nameless “Hachiko” has been observed near the entrance of a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, more than four months after its owner, a homeless man, was stabbed in a local park and rushed to Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte medical centre where he died from his injuries.

Following the fatal incident, the dog chased the ambulance carrying his owner and has waited at the doors of the medical centre ever since, still refusing to leave, and was cared for by the Hospital staff. 

Wouldn’t you wish to have a devoted friend like Hachiko? 



4……….> The Leica Legend: 100th

A Leica camera from 1923 has fetched a record price at auction in Vienna, with the prototype 0-Series piece was snapped up for the princely sum of €2.4 million – six times the opening price.

The camera — serial number 122 — went on auction at a start price of €400,000 ($492,300). After a bidding war ensued in the room and by phone, the sum rose to €2.4 million — the hammer price of €2 million plus a €400,000 surcharge for the auctioneer.

“The remarkable price certainly also reflects the camera’s fantastic original condition,” said a press release from Westlicht. The camera was bought by a private collector in Asia. 



5…………..> Slingshot: Danger Within

In line with sending hostility to people computers worldwide, “Dark Web” anti-social computer code assassins have created a new malware named “Slingshot”, recently discovered by Kaspersky Lab that is capable of compromising the routers of personal computers with the help of multi-level attacks.

Slingshot malware includes the module Cahnadr and the user mode module GollumApp, affecting the kernel code, which allows attackers to gain expanded access to computer memory at all levels, while the other damages the user level, taking control of the files and constantly monitoring the persistence of malware in the operating system.
