Regularly stories pop up about people who are cursed by other people, events, or objects. The curse of Tutankhamun is a well-known example. But there are also more recent curses, for example, the curse of Ötzi, an ice mummy found in 1991. And what about the petition in the city of Carlisle in 2005, to have a work of art removed that contained the text of a curse?
Bush and forest fires in Australia are causing irreversible damage to Australia’s wildlife. In danger, these animals risk disappearing forever.
From 15 December 2019, drone insurance must be taken out. But how much is it? Where can it be done? Here’s what you need to know about drone insurance. The new Civil Aviation Regulation requires ALL of drones owners to take out insurance before you fly.
Like many other innovations, this could catch many citizens unprepared, who will now have to adapt all their equipment. In this article, we will find out everything you need to know.
In short, however, I can tell you that without insurance, you cannot fly your drone. Very simple and clear.
In particular, here’s what the regulation says:
It is not allowed to conduct operations with a SAPR unless an insurance concerning liability towards third parties, adequate for the purpose, has been stipulated and valid.
The new regulation, therefore, does not allow for real differences between recreational and working discoveries, let alone in terms of size.
Which type of drones doesn’t need insurance?
Drones toy, or those built specifically for children, are exempt from compulsory insurance.
This type of product is recognizable by the ” CE ” mark, which testifies that that object complies with the European legislation on toys for children under the age of 14.
If the value “+14” (or higher) is shown, the insurance is equally mandatory. In short, therefore, the only category excluded is that of toy drones, which can fly without insurance. All the others, however, must take out insurance.
If you have not moved in time and are looking for insurance for your drone, below I will give you some useful information that will help you solve your problem in the easiest and fastest way possible, directly online and without wasting time.
Drone insurance cost:
First of all, let’s try to understand how much drone insurance costs. How much do you have to spend to secure a drone before flying it?
As with any other product, the prices of drone insurance vary according to many different factors, therefore it is not possible to establish an indicative cost.
Trivially, the price of insurance varies a lot depending on whether the drone is used for hobby or work. And the weight of the drone also has a great impact on the cost of insurance.
To give you an order of magnitude of what your drone insurance could cost, I can tell you that in principle the amount you will have to pay can be a few tens of euros (with a ceiling of 1,000,000 euros).
Just as you do for car insurance, however, it would be advisable to consult different insurance agencies, even taking advantage of the different online services, and find the best compromise, bearing in mind also the deductible, which involves an expense borne by the insured in case of damage caused by the drone.
In short, the insurance for the drone is not very different from that for the car. Only the price you have to change changes, which fortunately is quite low.
But where can you buy drone insurance? What is the best drone insurance? We also try to answer these questions.
Best drone insurance:
As you can see by searching on Google, there are now many drone insurance that you can freely take out. But I want to share my experience with you.
I currently own a DJI Mavic Mini, a small drone that I use as a hobby and weighs less than 250 grams.
In my case, among many, I chose the insurance offered by the Avion Drone Insurance, which offers policies for hobbyists, policies for the fourteenth century, policies for SAPR, KASKO for SAPR and legal protection for SAPR, all relying on CABI BROKER at an insurance level.
In my case, I spend 30 euros/year and I can fly in total safety with my little drone. As already mentioned, there are various drone insurance policies based on various parameters, but I chose this because:
- Subscribes online, without going to agencies and wasting time with people who maybe don’t even know what policy they are selling us.
- It is proposed by a very authoritative portal in terms of drones.
- It costs little and has a very competitive price.
- You subscribe quickly and in just a few steps.
- If you want, you can join a community of drone enthusiasts.
In short, I have now been taking out this insurance for 2 years (I was also using it for Spark ) and I am very satisfied, so I recommend it to you, YourLifeUpdated readers too.
What is the minimum ceiling?
The ceiling is the maximum amount that the agency will be able to pay if the policyholder causes damage.
There is a minimum ceiling, as underlined in article 7 of the ENAC Regulation (EC) 785/2004. This sum is equivalent to about 800,000 euros.
Almost all insurances, in order to comply with the regulations of the reference institution, ensure higher ceilings than this figure.
I hope I have clarified doubts and questions about drone insurance. The important thing I want to pass is that now, with the regulation just approved, the drone hobby insurance has become mandatory. Fortunately, however, securing a drone is a fast and straightforward operation, which you can do directly online by following our tips.
You are free to choose the insurance you prefer for your drone, the important thing is that you do it before flying, otherwise you risk big trouble with the new ENAC regulation.
Important information clarified by ENAC:
- Recreational drones> 249g will need to be registered on the D-flight website starting July 1, 2020.
- The pilot of the recreational drone> 249g will have to obtain the online certificate, the so-called license, by 1 July 2020 on a date starting from 1 March 2020. Those who are recreational pilots will have until 1 July 2020 to obtain the certificate but in the meanwhile, you can use the drone.
- From 1 June to 30 September it is forbidden to use a drone on the beach within 100m of the coastline at a height of less than 300m from the ground. In practice, in summer you can NO longer fly on the beach with the drone.
Do you know right now, there is a mass development and production of futuristic hotels where robotic arm makes cocktails and food are delivered in the restaurants, not by waiters, but by small robots. This is now very common in china where people in catering establishment are been replaced by appliances. For example, inside Ratio cafe in Shanghai, a robotic arm plays the role of a bartender and barista. Visitors can order via the application using WeChat messenger, they can indicate sugar level and select the desired coffee beans. In addition, the robot can also synchronizes with clients profiles on social networks and call them during maintenance.
The founder of Ratio cafe Gavin Patross reported last year that the barista robot attracted a lot of customers, and they keeps on coming back for more.
“As soon as we introduced this concept, people fall in love with it” as reported by the owner of Ratio cafe.
Using a robotic arm not only attracts customers, but it also reduces the café’s labor costs and maintenance, allowing only the allocations of few personnel to help and interact with visitors.
Some Chinese startups unusually combine food and robotics. Such an example is Walter Stanisz, the managing director of Infinite Food from Zhuhai, calls his company a rethinking of food delivery in an urban setting. His organization has created a vending machine, which independently creates and delivers dishes on demand. Although tests of the robot are still ongoing, the company is close to completing the second round of financing. Infinite Food plans to launch cafes on wheels in hundreds of outlets in Macau, Hong Kong and Guangdong by the end of 2020.
Hongbo Zhicheng Technology, located in Shenzhen, produces robots for frying products, essential mechanized buckets and other kitchen equipment for popular food chains. In addition to creating robots themselves, Hongbo built a research laboratory for Chinese cuisine and collected a digital database of recipes for hundreds of popular dishes. Together, they allow you to standardize the preparation of Chinese food, which can vary greatly depending on the region and even the capabilities of the chef of each institution.
Executive Director Hongbo Zhicheng Technology Zeng Zhicheng believes that automation can bring the necessary changes to the crowded food and beverage industry, improving the quality of dishes and simplifying the management of restaurants. As the industry becomes industrialized and standardized.
According to Chinese electronics industry for 2018, catering startups using automation are still in early stages of financing, but in general the industry shows great potential for growth. Automating cooking not only reduces costs, but also increases safety. The introduction of standardized recipes, as well as automated cooking, should improve the quality of products and restore consumer confidence

Bitcoin is a digital currency that was created in 2008 by “Satoshi Nakamoto.” It’s exchanged electronically, it’s tied to no banks, and no central authority controls it. That’s strange enough. But one of the strangest things about the currency is that Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity has never been confirmed. And “Nakamoto” — whether that’s an individual or a group of people — is estimated to own up to 5 percent of the total supply of the currency. That’s not just a lot of money; it’s a potentially dangerous amount of power.
A few months prior to bitcoin’s launch in January 2009, Nakamoto wrote a white paper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.” The paper included citations from collaborators, but Nakamoto never revealed their identity while communicating with them over email. On their P2P Foundation profile, Nakamoto claimed to be a Japanese man born on April 5, 1975. But searches for that identity came up with nothing, and the birthdate was fishy: April 5 was the date President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed executive order 6102 forbidding the hoarding of gold by U.S. citizens (in 1933), and 1975 was the year gold ownership once again became legal for U.S. citizens. Coincidence? Perhaps not, as this is just one of many easter eggs allegedly hidden by Nakamoto in their correspondence with others.
Bitcoin enthusiasts have come up with a few theories about Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity. Nathaniel Popper wrote at length in the New York Times why he believed Nick Szabo, creator of a bitcoin predecessor called “bit gold,” was a likely candidate, but Szabo has vehemently denied that he is Nakamoto. In 2014, Newsweek writer Leah McGrath Goodman attempted to identify Nakamoto as a Japanese American man from California named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, as his birth name was similar and he had experience as a systems engineer and in financial information services. But Dorian Nakamoto fiercely denied the claim, and Satoshi Nakamoto’s P2P foundation account even posted “I am not Dorian Nakamoto.” And before you ask: yes, Elon Musk has denied that he could be Satoshi Nakamoto.
An Australian entrepreneur named Craig Wright has claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, but his claim has been met with much skepticism. If Nakamoto ever did reveal his/her/their true identity, it could prove dangerous: owning around five percent of the entire supply of the cryptocurrency, or roughly 1 million bitcoin, lends the owner great power. Bitcoin’s exchange rate is famously volatile, so we won’t tell you how many U.S. dollars that would be worth because it will probably be different by the time you read this. But if you multiply bitcoin’s current price by 1 million, then you might see a pretty huge number.
This is exactly why many believe that revealing Nakamoto’s identity is important. Cryptocurrency Professor Matt Green told CNBC that Nakamoto has the power to tank the currency if they want to. Because part of bitcoin’s value comes from its scarcity (only 21 million bitcoins can ever be mined), Nakamoto could cause the price of bitcoin to tank by selling a large piece of the stash in that million-bitcoin wallet. And while others agree that uncovering Nakamoto’s identity could have a huge impact on bitcoin’s economics and internal politics, there’s something kind of poetic about the creator(s) of the world’s first decentralized digital currency remaining a mystery.
Since the emergence of Whatsapp, Facebook and other instant messaging applications the use of emojis has rose so high and now it is almost impossible to have a conversation through these applications and social networks without putting an emoji.
Following the study of 427 million WhatsApp and SMS messages from four million users and 212 countries, conducted by the University of Michigan and Beijing, we have been able to verify what has been the most used emoji worldwide.
The emoji are collected as a world language and are recognizable in any country, the most used emoji around the world is the “face with tears of joy” followed by the “heart” and the “face in love”.
Although as you can see in the images France corroborates its legend as the country of love where the most used emoji has been the heart. The use of emoji with tears of laughter exceeds 15.4% of the total use of the rest of emojis , a very high percentage if we compare it with the very high number of daily conversations that exist.
According to this study we can see that the French people use the most emojis in their talks followed by Russia and the United States. After the study several conclusions have been reached, being the use of happy emojis depends on countries with individual users.
On the contrary, more familiar users use emoji of anger and negative thoughts and countries for example in afica and other regions with long-term instabilities use negative emojis.
As you could see the most used emoji in the world is the “face with tears of laughter” , so it seems to be that we are a society where we are happy and we like to laugh, since laughter is one of the best cures for many adverse situations.
What did you think of this study? What is the emoji you use the most?
The Huawei Mate 9 which was released late last year turned out to be one of the most powerful among android Smartphones. It has one of the most fastest mobile processors which can only be compare to the not yet released Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, and UFS 2.1 standard memory. Additionally, the Mate 9 implemented a number of innovative technical solutions, including those developed by the company Huawei. We have decided to examine this flagship device and give you nine interesting facts that you might not know.
Fact 1: Kirin 960- is the first commercial ARM-based processors with cores Cortex-A73 / A53
The kirin 960 inside the Huawei Mate 9 is the world’s first commercial processor that has eight cores ARM Cortex-A73 / A53 and eight-GPU. The processor provides impressive multi-core performance while reducing power consumption by 15%. Also, compared to its predecessor it offers a 180% increase in GPU performance, and 20% improvement in energy efficiency.
Fact 2: Kirin 960 supports Vulkan API for 3D-applications
Kirin 960 has been confirmed to fully support the new Vulkan graphical standard for Android 7.0, it can boost up graphics performance up to about 400%. Vulkan API overcomes the limitations imposed by the CPU to the GPU performance, improving output and performance with rendering.
Fact 3: Coprocessor in Kirin 960 maximizes smartphone
The Coprocessor i6 used in production of Kirin 960 uses big.LITTLE architecture – in order to allocate different resources to more productive core of Cortex-A73 and weaker task to the Cortex-A53. i6 operates with light tasks, when the main processor is not enabled, which allows the smartphone to work effectively all the time and consume little power. This prolongs the smartphone usage time , for example, when using GPS-navigation.
Fact 4: The first Huawei processor with support for global mobile networks.
It has the first processor with support for all global frequency bands and mobile communication standards, including GSM, UMTS, CDMA, TD-SCDMA, TDD-FDD-LTE Cat 12/13, which allows to download data at speeds up to 600 Mbit / s. It also supports 4×4 MIMO technology, providing faster and more reliable connection with the possibility of simultaneous four data streams transmission.
Fact 5: It charge up to 50% faster than its predecessor
It is equipped with fast charging technology with Super Charge. A 20 minutes of charging is enough to power-up the smartphone for the whole day, and 10 minute charging provides enough battery power to watch two movies.
Fact 6: Battery safety – one of the top priorities of the company
The charge controller monitors the real-time voltage, current, and battery temperature, thus eliminating any danger to the user and extend battery life. It also comes with USB Type-C and SuperCharge universal adapter connector.
Fact 7: It has a dedicated processor for calculating the camera depth of the scene.
The Dual Camera with F / 2,2 diaphragm can produces bokeh effect, like “Professional” cameras. Also, this smartphone has a dedicated processor that computes the depth of the scene and to distinguish objects in the foreground, middle and background.
Fact 8: Monochrome sensor in Huawei Mate 9 differs from conventional photomatrixes
Most smartphones uses software filters for converting a color image to black and white. The Huawei Mate 9 has a monochrome 20 megapixel sensor that captures an image directly into shades of gray, with no loss of information due to color filters. This increases the clarity, contrast and expands the dynamic range of black-and-white photos.
Fact 9: The EMUI 5.0 Firmware has learns to improve performance
EMUI 5.0 uses machine learning algorithms to evaluate the behavior of applications installed, memory usage, user interaction with the smartphone – and applies the data to optimize performance.
Your phone knows all your secrets it like your personal treasure safe box, where you unknowingly keeps your personal secrets and golden treasures. Imagine what will happen if someone is using your phone to spy on you, that means they will know about you deep personal secret, your conversations, your movement/locations and even about your golden treasures. Today on Tech Myth, we are going to talk about Five interesting ways your smartphone might be used to spy on you check it out below:
1. Through your cell phone camera
Yes it is very possible, Szymon Sidor a university student claims to have written an Android app that takes photos and videos using a smartphone camera, even while the screen is turned off. He further claims his android app works by using a tiny preview screen – just 1 pixel x 1 pixel – to keep the camera running in the background. This tool can be used by any thieves to record your activities and exploit your phone without your permission or knowing. According to Sidor, there is a major flaw in the Android operating system which won’t allow the camera to record without running a preview – which is how Sidor discovered that he could make the preview so small that it is effectively invisible to the naked eye. Sidor was able to demonstrate how the app works in his video on youtube, using his Nexus 5 smartphone. you can watch the video here:
2. Cheap Chinese phone transmitting data
For a long time, Chinese phones from Huawei, Xiaomi and others were suspected to be secretly transmitting user data to servers in China. The companies have repeatedly denied this, and the NSA has been accused of counter-spying too. In turn, China is imposing security demands on US companies.
3. By using your phone IMEI or MEID number
An IMEI or MEID number is like a fingerprint that identifies each handset that is created by a certain electronics and communications company. No two devices will have the same IMEI or MEID, which makes it a very useful tool for tracking lost or stolen cell phones.
The network providers, authorities or the manufacturers have a device that can track any phone with an IMEI or MEID. This device is connected to the manufacturer’s database of every single handset that they have created. As long as the phone is connected to a network, it can be tracked using a triangulation process.
The Triangulation process works by sending a signal to a satellite then to the handset. By doing this, the exact location of the handset will be found using a global positioning and receiving satellite or GPRS. The only way to keep a satellite form tracking the phone is to remove the network SIM forever or to change the IMEI number, which is impossible because the only ones who have an IMEI changer are the manufacturer themselves.
If a user phone has been reported stolen or someone has commit a certain grievous crime, the authorities can write an IMEI tracking letter which will be sent to all the network providers in a country. The network service providers will put the phone IMEI number on surveillance. Whenever the phone is switched on after putting a SIM, it tries to register on network and phone’s IMEI number is sent to service provider during this process. So service provider will come to know about the latest sim-card inserted in phone, user dial number, received calls, contact list, recent location and address and even all the sent/received messages by the phone user. However, If there is no SIM in phone or phone is kept switched off, it cannot be traced with IMEI only.
4. By using the social media
According to security researchers and user’s reports, social media sites may be accessing our devices and spying on us using our camera, microphone, GPS, and other features more than we realize. And a lot of people are uncomfortable with what they believe is an invasion of their privacy.
Recently a Florida TV station ran a news story suggesting that Facebook uses your phone’s microphone to listen to your conversations and serves up ads based on what you talk about. After the story blew up on (of course) social media, Facebook published a statement saying that it doesn’t listen to your conversations for the purpose of selling ads. But, Facebook says, it does use your microphone “if you have given our app permission and if you are actively using a specific feature that requires audio,” such as features that allows you to include music you’re listening to in a status update
Last year, the Netflix Android app began requesting access to the microphone, alarming some people who wondered why a movie-streaming app would want mic access. The company said it only wanted to enable users to call customer service from their phones/tablets, and didn’t plan to listen to their phone calls.
Recently, some android users reportedly downloaded a Facebook app that automatically upload their latest camera photos to their profile and timeline without their permission. One of the affected user said the malicious app secretly uploaded her insurance card and her nude pics to her Facebook timeline. The application further went ahead sending friend request and messages to all her phone contact to like her recently uploaded pictures.
You should always be aware that your smartphone’s camera geo-tags every picture you take, that means anyone can see your locations by just checking out your pictures in your social media profile.
5. GPS tracking apps
Fitness tracking apps like Apple Health in iPhone and Google Fit on Android, has the ability to track your phone anywhere you are, by using your phone GPS data. While this apps is great for keeping you healthy it it is also tracking your movement and locations.
There are a ton of other apps that are accessing your GPS data for seemingly no reason. According to Carnegie Mellon University’s Privacy Grade website, which evaluates Android app permissions, many popular apps including word game Words With Friends and screen-lock app GO Locker want access to your precise location data to serve personalized ads or enable certain app functionality.
Do you know your phone can kill you, that piece of metal/plastic you put in your pocket, handbags and close to your ears might be dangerous. Now you should always think of your phone as an assassin, waiting to assassinate you when you are charging, taking a selfie, sleeping or driving or a time bomb ready to explode at any minute. Below are 8 ways your phone is planning to kill you, you should be very careful!!!
1. Using your mobile phone at a petrol station
There is the possibility of an explosion or fire, if you recived a call or if you keep your phone turned on at the petrol station. This is because a mobile phone contain low-power radio-frequency transmitters (between 450 and 2700 MHz), with a peak power value that ranges between 0.1 and 2 watts, this can emit little energy that can ignite a fire spark. This may also happen if your phone has a defective battery, it is advisable to switch off your phone when in a filling station due to the danger of explosion or fire which is very dangerous.
2. Your phone charger can electrocute you
A Phone charger is made in such a way that it steps down the voltage from the power outlet before it transfer electricity to the DC which can be safely used by your phone to charge its battery. But however in some rare cases, if the charger is working incorrectly or faulty (or if there is a short circuit) you’ll receive the full line voltage that isn’t being transformed (e.g 120 VAC) and you’ll be electrocuted. If you don’t receive immediate medical attention, it is possible that you’ll suffer heart failure and die.
One of the true rare charger electrocution cases was the one of 23-year-old Ma Ailun in july 2013, report claims that she was electrocuted (and died) after she picked up her iPhone 4 while the device was charging. However, further reports says it’s because Aliu was using a third-party charger and not an original Apple charger. You can read more about the story on CNN here
3. Phone radiation can give you cancer
Your phone will give you cancer and you can die from it. Study report and scientific investigations had confirmed an increased risk of tumors on the side of the head where the phone is held. putting your phone in delicate parts of your body for a long time is not good, most especially the head, chest and pocket.
So far, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) had said that it is unlikely that mobile phones could increase the risk of brain tumors, or any other type of cancer. But we do not have enough to completely rule out a risk.
4. You could die while taking a selfie
Most of those people who top the list of phone selfie deaths were youths; their average age was 21. An overwhelming number, or 75 percent, were young men.
“Falling from heights” topped the list as the cause of death for 16 of the deceased. Do a simple Google search for “phone selfie deaths” and you’ll find the Russian teenager who plummeted to his death while taking an “extreme selfie” for his Instagram followers. Some other notable death news headlines are: A couple fell off a cliff while taking a selfie in Portugal, two teenagers were trampled to death by an elephant in Kenya, and a 17-year-old girl plunged to her death from atop a bridge in Russia.
5. You could get shot trying to retrieve your lost/stolen phone
Canadian teenager Jeremy Cook was shot and killed after he tried to retrieve his phone (which he left in a taxi) by tracking it down with an app. Police said Cook confronted the men who had his phone and died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Also an Alabama man who used a computer app to track down his stolen cell phone was shot and killed when he tried to retrieve it from the suspected thief, police said.
The 23-year-old victim’s phone was stolen from his car in Fairfield, Alabama.
The cases above illustrates the danger of people trying to apprehend cell phone thieves on their own with the help of tracking apps.
“Notify police and let them handle the recovering.”
6. Using your phone in a hot environment can kill you
On June 19 2007, a Chinese welder had his Motorola phone near his chest when it exploded, causing him to have broken ribs . His broken bone fragments pierced his heart and caused his death . Many believe that the cause of the explosion was due to the lithium -ion battery blowing up as a result of the high temperature of his workplace . Motorola questioned whether or not he used a fake phone or battery . This marked the first recorded fatality resulting from a cell phone explosion.
7. Buying unknown brand, fake/clone phones
A Chinese shop worker was found dead after his newly bought unknown brand cell phone exploded burst on his chest . Reports said that the worker had just finished charging his phone before putting it inside his chest pocket . Another employee suddenly heard a loud explosion and found the man lifeless.
Also while his phone was connected to the wall outlet, a young man from Ghana who bought a fake clone Samsung Galaxy S2 answered a call. This led the phone to short circuit and electrocuted the man to death . He was rushed to the hospital but was announced dead upon arrival. Tech experts says that the phone was made with inferior wiring which triggered short circuit.
8. Your cell phone may explode if you receives/places a call while charging?
This can happen due to a defective battery or prolong overcharging which damages the battery. This can later on result in an explosion while charging, due to the fact that when you make or receive calls the load on your phone increases, putting too much pressure on your battery.
With too much pressure inside the battery pack, a short circuit is more likely to happen, resulting in excess heat inside the battery pack, which can cause even more heat-generating chemical reactions.
A Thermal runaway can also occurs, which is a situations where an increase in temperature changes the conditions in a way that causes a further increase in temperature, often leading to a destructive result. The End result is often destructive, i.e. explosion, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 scandal. Thermal Runaway can happen to any device that runs n a lithium-ion battery that is faulty – due to manufacturing problems.
