HONG KONG, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — This month, CNN launches ‘Saved by the Future’, a brand-new cross-platform series in which some of the biggest names in science and technology spotlight breakthrough innovations in mobility, automation, energy, sustainability and artificial intelligence that could transform our lives in decades to come.
In the first of three 30-minute shows, host Nicki Shieldsguides conversations with Bill Nye, Fabien Cousteau and Kathy Sullivan, who transport us to a world of future possibilities that once seemed like mere science fiction, in everything from mobility in space to electric drones that can predict the weather.
Shields first speaks with TV Star “The Science Guy”, climate change advocate and social media sensation Bill Nye about the future of space exploration. Nye is CEO of the Planetary Society, which successfully launched its LightSail 2 spacecraft in 2019. The spacecraft is powered by solar winds
If “Better with Kinect” was the great misstep of the Xbox One launch, it seems more and more like a similar issue, albeit not on the same level perhaps, is Microsoft relying so heavily on Halo Infinite making it out for the Xbox Series X/S launch.
In the last two days we have seen promotion for the Series X ramp up. There’s a new TV spot for the console starring Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya, and Series X boxes have been spotted in the wild making their way to retailers.
What do both have in common? Master Chief is heavily focused on in the ad, and he makes up the entire back of the box.
It’s very clear just how much Microsoft was banking on Halo Infinite making it out for the Series X launch, and now that it isn’t, and does not in fact even have a

Humans are exposed continuously to the menace of viral diseases such as those caused by the Ebola virus, Zika virus and coronaviruses. Such emerging/re-emerging viral outbreaks can be triggered by cross-species viral transmission from wild animals to humans.
To achieve cross-species transmission, new hosts have to be exposed to the virus from the old host. Next, the viruses acquire certain mutations that can be beneficial for replicating in the new hosts. Finally, through sustained transmission in the new host, the viruses adapt further evolving as a new virus in the new host. However, at the outset of this process, the viruses have to overcome “the species barriers,” which hamper viral cross-species transmission. Mammals including humans have “intrinsic immunity” mechanisms that have diverged enough in evolution to erect species barriers to viral transmission.

While technology has been the engine that has driven stock market performance for some time now, increasingly we are seeing a seismic shift to health care among many portfolio managers, and with good reason. Health care spending has grown for years, and with an aging population that is actually living longer, more and more procedures that may have been postponed in the past are being completed now.
A new component for the industry is the big increase in working from home, and this is helping to fuel growth for some of the top medical technology companies. In a new Jefferies research report from, the firm’s lead health care analyst, Jared Holz, makes the case that working from home could be a huge boost for the industry in the near term and into 2021 and beyond.
