COVID red zone violations caught on camera in New York City spark concern

MIDWOOD, Brooklyn (WABC) — As officials push to lower the number of COVID-19 cases in New York City’s hot zones, enforcement concerns continue.

There have been several incidents of people blatantly not following the restrictions in those red zones – and there is fear about what this could mean as work continues to curb the infection rate.

Tuesday night in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, a crowd was spotted leaving what appeared to be a large indoor gathering.

Many people were seen on camera not wearing masks.

And on the same day that the mayor praised efforts to suppress the coronavirus, Eyewitness News found hundreds of young children being dismissed from a school.

They were herded onto buses Tuesday afternoon, some wearing masks, some not. All of them were attending Bais Yaacov School on 51st Street.

The building is inside the state’s red zone and should have been closed starting last week.

What Is Mars Opposition? How, When And Where To Watch Red Planet Shine Bright

KEY POINTS

  • Mars will be in opposition Oct. 13
  • A planet is in opposition when it aligns with the Earth and the Sun
  • Viewers can watch the event through Virtual Telescope Project’s Mars opposition viewing

Viewers can observe the Mars opposition Oct. 13 where the planet can be seen in the night sky.

Now that we’ve seen Mars hit its closest approach to Earth on Oct. 6, we can now expect to see it beaming in the night sky this Tuesday, when it will align with Earth and the Sun, giving viewers from Earth the closest view they can get for the next 15 years. The next time we’ll see Mars this close will be in 2035, according to an article by Space.com.

Mars and Earth, as well as all the other planets in the solar system, orbit the Sun at different distances and speeds. But every two years or

Vivo IFEA Concept Smartphone With Detachable Camera Wins Red Dot Award

Smartphone manufacturers have been long trying to achieve all-screen design. And in this process, the Vivo concept smartphone IFEA with a detachable camera module has grabbed Red Dot Award.

Moreover, OEMs have somewhat achieved the all-screen design with the motorized pop-up camera module or flip camera mechanism, etc. But all boils down to the device’s durability.

However, Vivo’s concept phone dubbed as Vivo IFEA that has a modular camera system has won the Red Dot Design Award. Well, it is no denying fact that Vivo is always the front runner when it comes to smartphone innovation.

Vivo was the first OEM to bring under-display fingerprint technology, which was later adopted by other OEMs. And now once again, Vivo is stealing the limelight with its detachable or modular camera system.

As per the official award landing page, the Vivo IFEA is Vivo’s answer to provide new photography system experience on smartphones.

Cycling’s BMC And F1’s Red Bull Advanced Technologies Hint At Cycling Revolution

Swiss cycling brand BMC and U.K.-based Formula One motor racing team Red Bull Advanced Technologies have released a teaser video promising a “cycling revolution.”

In the video, former professional sprint cyclist Fabian Cancellara rides—fast—on an obscured road racing bicycle and ends by claiming that “if this works it’s going to change everything.”

BMC has been working with Aston Martin Red Bull Advanced Technologies for two years and the teaser video released on October 6 is the first communication about the collaboration since it was announced in 2018.

“After almost two years of intense research and development, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and innovative Swiss bike brand BMC have moved into the prototyping phase of their technology partnership,” said a joint announcement.

Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ Vehicle Science team has been helping BMC technicians with simulations of bike behavior based on data from Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.

Can the Red Raiders right the ship with an upset of No. 24 Iowa State?

Texas Tech at No. 24 Iowa State

When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday at MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium

Records: Texas Tech (1-2 overall, 0-2 Big 12); Iowa State (2-1, 2-0 Big 12)

Last meeting: Iowa State defeated Texas Tech 34-24 on Oct. 19, 2019, in Lubbock, Tx.

TV: ABC

What’s at stake?

This may only be Texas Tech’s fourth game, but it likely will decide the fate of the season and, possibly, Matt Wells’ future in Lubbock. It sounds dramatic, but the Red Raiders need this upset in a bad way. Texas Tech is tied with Oklahoma for eighth place in the conference.

Since Matt Campbell took over in 2016 the Red Raiders are 0-4 against the Cyclones, including an embarrassing 66-10 loss by Patrick Mahomes and company in Campbell’s first year. That year’s Iowa State team finished the year 3-9.

SpaceX Starman dummy finally makes it to Mars in Elon Musk’s red Tesla

Starman abides.


SpaceX

Starman has finally made it to the red planet — sort of. 

It’s been over two and a half years since SpaceX successfully demonstrated its Falcon Heavy launch system. Rather than using a hunk of concrete or some other sort of ballast for a test payload, Elon Musk offered up his cherry red Tesla piloted by a dummy in a spacesuit named Starman.

Starman was set on a trajectory toward Mars, the planet Musk hopes to help transform into a new destination for humans in the coming decades. 

Just over 32 months later, the Tesla finally made its first close pass by Mars on Wednesday, according to a tweet from SpaceX.

What does Honda’s departure mean for Red Bull and F1?

Honda’s decision to leave Formula One at the end of 2021 poses big questions for Red Bull and for the sport as a whole.

First and foremost, two teams, Red Bull and Alpha Tauri, need to find a new engine supplier by this time next year. The sport has rules in place to ensure no team is left without a power unit in its cars, but based on the current contracts in F1, that would pair Red Bull with its former engine partner, Renault.

That relationship did not end well back in 2018, and neither side has shown a desire to bury the hatchet. What’s more, Red Bull — the only team capable of challenging the dominant Mercedes outfit this year — would go from being a works team with Honda engines to a customer team with Renault, presenting a significant setback in its progress.

But Honda’s decision also raises

Can the Red Raiders end their long losing streak in Manhattan?

Texas Tech at Kansas State

When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan, Ks.

Records: Texas Tech (1-1, 0-1 Big 12); Kansas State (1-1, 1-0 Big 12)

Last meeting: Kansas State defeated Texas Tech 30-27 in Lubbock

TV: FS1

What’s on the line?

In the last decade, the Red Raiders only managed to beat the Wildcats once in nine meetings. Heading into the 2010s Texas Tech was riding a five-game winning streak against Kansas State. These two teams would be coming off of similarly season-defining wins had Texas Tech not blown a 15 point lead in the waning moments of last week’s contest against Texas.

For Kansas State, its season has already been deeply confusing. The Wildcats opened with a loss to Arkansas State at home, then upset No. 3 Oklahoma in Norman. Texas Tech badly needs to rebound after nearly pulling off a program-defining upset

Why red means stop and green means go: Getting There

Do you ever wonder why our stoplights designate red as stop and green as go? Me too. In fact, it was my daughter’s question on this very matter that inspired me to do some historic research.

In the 1840s, the British railroads adopted a flag, lamp and semaphore signal system where red meant danger, white meant safety and green indicated proceed with caution. They took their inspiration from early industrialization where factory machines used red to indicate the equipment was off and green when turned on.

But when the red glass lens on one signal lamp dropped out of its socket, showing a white light which caused a rail collision, they opted for yellow instead.

Traditionally red has evoked danger and green, a more calming influence. But it was optical science that reinforced the choice.

Red has the longest wavelength in the visible spectrum and is less likely to be
