Miners dug hundreds, even thousands, of feet into the ground here, extracting one of humanity's most treasured minerals: salt.They've since left the mine, having extracted its treasures, but they left behind an incredible patchwork of passages as tall as cathedrals.Proponents claim the salt keeps the air inside the mines free of allergens, and low in bacteria.Nearly 1,400 feet underground, the potassium and stone salt mine near the town of Soligorsk, south of Minsk, in Belarus is a popular destination for medical treatments.The Republican Clinic of Speleotherapy says more than 7,000 children and adults go to the mine each year to relieve their respiratory illnesses.The US Food and Drug Administration has approved medications called mucolytics that can thin the mucus in the lungs in a similar way.

Apple has announced that it s creating its first app development accelerator in Asia, as the Cupertino company seeks to woo India s engineering community with a dedicated space in which to learn design best-practices for Apple s mobile operating system.Expected to open in Bengaluru in early 2017, the iOS App Design and Development Accelerator will support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India s iOS developer community, according to a press release.India has emerged as a key battleground for the big U.S. tech companies as both Google and Facebook look to tap the burgeoning online population — with varying degrees of success — even though much of the country s 1.3 billion inhabitants remain offline.And earlier this year, Apple confirmed plans to open a new development hub in Hyderabad, India that s expected to eventually house around 4,500 people.Apple s new app accelerator will essentially serve to help developers improve their design and development skills for iOS and will include one-on-one app reviews for developers, as well as support for Apple s programming language, Swift.India is home to one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial iOS development communities in the world, said Apple CEO Tim Cook.With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we re giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world.Bengaluru is a major startup hub in India — an estimated one million people work in the city s technology industry, while more than 40 percent of university graduates in the area specialize in IT or engineering, according to Apple.This isn t the first such center Apple has unveiled — earlier this year, it announced its first iOS App Development Center in Europe, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, Italy.The company also has a similar hub in Brazil.
Autonomous car manufacturers might start to look at the United Kingdom as a viable alternative to Europe or the U.S., thanks to proposed new reforms on insurance legislation that now covering autonomous cars.Announced in the Queen s Speech to Parliament earlier today, the reforms allow autonomous cars to be tested and purchased in the U.K.See Also: General Motors flags down Lyft to start autonomous taxi trialWe don t think this means fully autonomous cars are purchasable, but autonomous features will be allowed inside U.K. cars.This means things like Tesla s Model S autonomous lane switching or Ford s self-parking should be available in the next few years.Volvo and Jaguar Land Rover are testing autonomous cars in the U.K. already, in project cities like London and Milton Keynes, and will now be able to test the cars across the country.We suspect other European-based automotive companies may look at the U.K., which is less restrictive than other European countries on autonomous cars.
Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.
Microsoft has announced an agreement to sell its feature-phone business to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based electronics giant Foxconn, and another entity called HMD Global, Oy for around $350 million.HMD Global was founded out of Finland in 2015, and initially it looked like it was a business vehicle of sorts set up to help facilitate the Microsoft transaction — Finland, if you remember, is home to Nokia, the former mobile phone giant that sold its core hardware assets to Microsoft two years back.Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Nokia brand in an industry where Nokia remains a truly iconic name, said Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies.So while Nokia still harbors ambitions to be a big mobile brand, it will have to rely on others much more than it once did — you may remember the company launched an Android-powered tablet in China back in 2014, well, that was under a similar arrangement as to what it will be doing now moving forward.This is where HMD Global comes into play — it s a new private company seemingly founded under Nokia s volition to build a new wave of mobile devices, replete with the Nokia brand.The venture is actually being run by CEO Arto Nummela, formerly of Nokia and the head of Microsoft s Mobile Devices business in Greater Asia, Middle East, and Africa, as well as Microsoft s soon-to-be-sold feature phones business.Nummela will be aided by President Florian Seiche, who currently serves as senior vice president for Europe sales and marketing at Microsoft Mobile.We don t yet know what these devices will look like, but we do know that HMD plans to invest around $500 million over the next three years to support the marketing of Nokia-branded devices, which HMD says will be funded via its investors and profits from the acquired feature phone business.
Photo: Nora TamHong Kong companies and financial services institutions lag behind the US and Europe in cybersecurity measures as little emphasis is placed on security from a board-level perspective, according to industry experts.He said the banking sector in Hong Kong had lagged in their uptake of cloud technology adoption.Darren Argyle, chief information security officer of UK-based financial technology firm Markit, believes that Hong Kong banks and companies fall behind the US and Europe in beefing up cybersecurity even as the number of cyberattacks have been on the rise globally.He added that companies often view security as a cost of doing business, as cyber criminals increasingly target corporations in their attacks.CEOs of financial companies are now starting to ask what technology is in place which assures that they can respond adequately during a breach, he said.One way to mitigate the skills gap in Hong Kong is for the government to invest heavily in cybersecurity and related security start-ups, thereby encouraging more Hongkongers to pursue a career in security, he said.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is also licensing the Nokia name for handsets back to Nokia, which has set up a new company that will make feature phones, Android-based smartphones, and tablets.Now, Microsoft claims it is not giving up the ghost entirely, even though it is enabling yet another competitor in the smartphone business.There was no bold vision or explanation of where Microsoft plans to go next in terms of mobile platforms and devices.Plus, Alcatel has actually been acquired by Nokia .What s more, the deal is not likely to reassure app developers, handset manufacturers, or consumers that Microsoft is in the smartphone game for the long haul.At this point, walking away is probably the best thing Microsoft can do.During its second quarter earnings report in January, Microsoft reported that it had sold 4.5 million Lumia devices, down from 10.5 million for the same period a year earlier.In the five years since Microsoft first gave us the Windows phone, the news has been bleak:And in the Kantar market share report for the three months ending in February, Windows Mobile was bleeding market share just about everywhere: down from 4.8 percent in 2015 to 2.6 percent in 2016 in the U.S; down from 9.1 percent in 2015 to 5.8 percent in 2016 in Australia; and down 10.1 percent to 5.9 percent in Europe s five biggest countries.Meanwhile, Windows Mobile was stuck at .9 percent in China, practically irrelevant.Microsoft has been focusing on services and applications that run across mobile platforms lately.This is probably its best hope for maintaining a foothold in the mobile platform game going forward.No doubt, it s a bitter moment for a company that once had such a lock on personal computing — thanks to its Windows desktop monopoly.But the mobile wars have long since become Apple s iOS versus Google s Android.Microsoft can only really move on by admitting that hard truth to itself.
The baby's mother was diagnosed with the Zika virus during pregnancyThe Zika virus, which has mainly affected areas of central and South America, may spread to Europe this summer, the World Health Organisation WHO has warned."We call particularly on countries at higher risk to strengthen their national capacities and prioritise the activities that will prevent a large Zika outbreak."The assessment took into consideration two factors: the likelihood of the virus spreading and the "existing national capacity to prevent or contain local transmission".Countries and areas at highest risk included Russia, Georgia and the Portuguese island of Madeira.WHO recommended a number of preventative measures to countries at high risk, including strengthening activities to prevent the spread of mosquitos, equipping health professionals to detect transmission of Zika and to ensure that communities "reduce mosquito breeding sites"."We stand ready to support European countries on the ground in case of Zika outbreaks," said Nedret Emiroglu, Director of the Communicable Diseases and Health Security Division, WHO Regional Office for Europe.

But they are not supreme, says Ingvar Matsson, energy analyst at Swedbank. - Now that four nuclear reactors should be closed, so it is quite a considerable part of energy production which must be replaced. So, wind power, and to some extent bio-energy, is probably the closest at hand simply. - Aid plays certainly, but it probably also motivated by the desire to be close to a large and stable electricity market. Germany's the largest single energy market in Europe, and Vattenfall are clear that they want to be there. - New energy in Germany may become especially important now, when you sell a substantial part of its German operations, said Ingvar Matsson as referring to brown coals.
