Scientist maps CO2 emissions for entire US to improve environmental policymaking — ScienceDaily

With intense wildfires in the western U.S. and frequent, intense hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico, the nation is again affected by extreme weather-related events resulting from climate change. In response, cities, states and regions across the country are developing policies to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases, chiefly carbon dioxide (CO2). Even though many state and local governments are committed to these goals, however, the emissions data they have to work with is often too general and too expensive to provide a useful baseline and target the most effective policy.

Professor Kevin Gurney of Northern Arizona University’s School of Informatics, Computing, and Cyber Systems today published results in the Journal of Geophysical Research detailing greenhouse gas emissions across the entire U.S. landscape at high space- and time-resolution with details on economic sector, fuel and combustion process.

Gurney, who specializes in atmospheric science, ecology and public policy, has

Better Buy: Apple Stock or the Entire Nasdaq?

The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite has been the top-performing major index amid the challenges created by the coronavirus and economic uncertainty this year.

The index’s performance is similarly impressive if you zoom further out: The Nasdaq climbed roughly 370% over the last decade while the S&P 500 index rose 195%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 157.5%. Meanwhile, shares of tech giant Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have soared by roughly 1,000% across the same stretch. 

Apple now stands as the biggest company in the Nasdaq and the largest U.S. company, with a market capitalization of roughly $2 trillion even after a recent pullback. Those strong performances from both the tech sector and its largest company raise the question: Should investors buy into Apple stock or an index fund that includes many of the technology industry’s most influential players?

Players Can Wipe Out Entire Squad Using C4 In New ‘Warzone’ Glitch

KEY POINTS

  • A “Warzone” glitch makes a driver and their vehicle invisible while using C4
  • The trick was the opposite of a bug reported last month where players cannot use the explosive
  • A similar bug was reported in July where players used claymore to deal damage to opposing squads

A recent “Call of Duty: Warzone” glitch was recently discovered by a Reddit user where players can easily wipe out an entire squad using a block of C4.

It’s not unusual for games like “Warzone” to have bugs in their system. There are times, however, that glitches, especially when they are heavily exploited by players, can use these to their advantage and gain an upper hand.

The C4 hiccup posted on a CODWarzone subreddit by user DarkOcf is the opposite of a familiar problem reported last month when battle royale players were unable to use the explosive. A video was posted

Apple reportedly no longer needs entire Apple Watch returned if Solo Loop doesn’t fit

According to leaker Jon Prosser, Apple has reversed its requirement for users to return their Apple Watch Series 6 if its Solo Loop, or Braided Solo Loop, isn’t the right size for them.

Apple’s original requirement for users to return their entire Apple Watch Series 6 to get a correct-size band meant that some were facing weeks before they could get their Watch back. Now reportedly Apple has decided they can keep the Watch, and just return the Solo Loop, or Braided Solo Loop, for replacement.

Leaker Jon Prosser goes on to say that Apple’s issuing of a replacement
