Watch Virginia Tech vs Duke Live: NCAA TodaY

Virginia Tech vs Duke Live, The last time Florida rose to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 rankings, its opponent in its next game was South Carolina and the Gators throttled the Gamecocks 44-11 in 2012. Ironically, that was during Will Muschamp’s most successful of three seasons as the UF’s coach. Now with Florida (1-0) ranked No. 3 for the first time since then, the Gators’ opponent is South Carolina again. This time, Muschamp will be on the opposite sideline attempting to direct the Gamecocks to another marquee October upset.


South Carolina (0-1) beat then-No. 3 Georgia on the road in October 2019, giving Muschamp his best victory of an otherwise dismal season that placed him on the hot seat. Guiding his team to another such victory would do wonders for the coach who owns a 26-26 record in the fifth season of his second gig as an

Stock market news today: Dow, S&P fall on Trump’s COVID-19 test, tech slump

  • US stocks sank on Friday after President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump said they both tested positive for COVID-19.
  • The diagnosis adds more uncertainties to the final month of a presidential race already expected to fuel outsize market volatility.
  • While some sectors pared losses and swung higher, falling tech stocks dragged on major indexes and led the Nasdaq composite to underperform its peers.
  • Investors also faced off against weakening economic data. US businesses added 661,000 nonfarm payrolls in September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s less than economists’ expectation of 859,000 payrolls.
  • Oil futures continued to slide below the $40 support level. West Texas Intermediate crude dropped as much as 5.4%, to $36.63 per barrel.

Streaming devices from Roku/Google in new 4K HDR fight, and more tech news today

Your tech news digest, by way of the DGiT Daily tech newsletter, for Tuesday, 29 September 2020.

1. Buying Google’s new Chromecast before launch, and the streaming box wars

We’re all set for Google’s Launch Night In event tomorrow, where we’ll get the Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, with pricing and availability being key interest points. (The leaks are probably right, but there’s still more to know.)

And, amongst other hardware to be launched, is a new Chromecast, which for some reason is already on sale (above via Reddit):

  • $50 for a streaming dongle with 4K HDR, and remote, plus Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, and not needing your phone to use it…
  • Yep, that’s a decent upgrade over the Chromecast Ultra, which didn’t offer HDR, nor a remote.
  • The current Ultra does offer an ethernet port for a hardwired connection, though, which can be useful for 4K

How Can Property Owners Choose The Best Solutions For Both Today And The Future?

Thermal imaging cameras, UVC sterilizing wands, smart HVAC systems, upgraded conference room audiovisual tools: The coronavirus has inspired developers and property owners to invest in a host of new technologies to keep their tenants safe.

But all this technology comes at a price, and it’s likely not in any owner’s budget to invest in it all. Also, these solutions are not one-size-fits-all, and what’s right for one building may not work for the tenants in another. So how can property owners determine what tools are right for them?

“No one knows how long this is going to last. It could be a six-month problem or a six-year problem,” said Ken Wilkinson, founder and managing partner of Layer 10 Consulting, a Denver-based workspace technology consultancy. “This is why building owners need to make sure they are investing in technology that will not only be valuable to their properties now, but long

What Can We Learn Today From Science and Technology Development in WWII?

Anti-aircraft guns in London during the Blitz of 1940 were mostly for show. It was extremely difficult to shoot down an aircraft. The shells launched to explode in an enemy bomber’s flight path had to be timed to one-fortieth of a second, explained Future Tense fellow Jaime Holmes in a recent online event co-sponsored by Future Tense and Issues in Science and Technology. A timing device a second off would mean an explosion 2,000 feet from its intended target.

It’s no surprise, then, that at the start of the Blitz it took about 20,000 shells to shoot down a single airplane.

Developing a solution to the problem—an electronic sensor within a shell that could detect a nearby aircraft and blow up in its proximity—was simple
