“Since the last couple of days, we have been advocating some caution because the Nifty has approached a strong resistance zone of 11,300-11,350 and although there is no sign of weakness yet, it will not be easy for the index to overcome this sturdy wall,” Chavan said. … [Read more...] about After The Bell: Tug of war between bulls & bears, what should investors do on Tuesday?

Technical difficulties are understandable, but do all you can to avoid them, said Eliot Kaplan, a former vice present of talent acquisition at Hearst Magazines who is now a career coach. Start by ensuring your Wi-Fi is as strong and reliable as possible. That might mean setting up your video call in the part of your home that gets the best reception, asking housemates to stay off the network during your interview or even paying for better Wi-Fi for a few months while you are job hunting. … [Read more...] about Coronavirus impact | Acing the online job interview
As an advocate for technology, women’s equality, and STEM education, Northcutt is also disappointed by the ongoing gender imbalance in the engineering field. “The percentage of women doing computers has dropped instead of increased, which is really sad,” she says. “In the ’60s, women were about 30%—partly because it was considered a more menial job then—but now it’s more like 18%,” she says. “There have been a lot of reports about very hostile workplaces for women in some of those fields. The kind of harassment that we experienced in the ’60s was nothing compared to the way you can have some of this targeted harassment on social media.” … [Read more...] about How Poppy Northcutt cracked NASA’s boys’ club and became a feminist icon
Despite this seismic hurdle, the Mars 2020 rover is on track for a July 30 launch toward its seven-month, 314-million-mile journey to the Red Planet. Its two-year mission is to gather samples suggesting past microscopic life for subsequent retrieval and return to Earth, explore the 4-billion-year-old geology of the Jezero Crater landing site, and demonstrate technologies for future robotic and human exploration. The mission has cost $2.4 billion from development through launch, with another $300 million earmarked for operations and surface science. … [Read more...] about Even amid COVID-19, NASA’s Mars 2020 rover is ready for takeoff
Harnessing copper in masks Right now, the gold standard for protecting people from the virus is the disposable medical-grade N95 respirator, which traps particles through layers of filters and electrostatic charge. This enables N95 respirators to filter out 95% of non-oil particles as small as 0.3 microns in diameter. Although the coronavirus is smaller, between 0.05 and 0.2 microns in diameter, wearing masks with smaller pores is problematic because they make breathing more difficult. The N95 masks instead thwart the virus’s path with multiple layers, while static electricity draws SARS-CoV-2 to the fabric. However, they’re made for one-time use, since liquids and humidity (including aerosolized droplets, sneezing, and exhaling) dampen those charges and render the masks less effective the more they’re worn. … [Read more...] about The future of face masks: Copper, graphene, and self-sanitizing fabric
