Listen to our weekly podcast Am I Making You Uncomfortable? about women’s health, bodies and private lives. Available on Spotify, Apple, Audioboom and wherever you listen to your podcasts.When it comes to weekly meals, it can be all too easy to fall into the trap of making a set repertoire of dishes every seven days – and repeat.Thankfully the duo behind So Vegan, Roxy Pope and Ben Pook, are here to inject some newness into our week-night routine.The pair have been creating delicious vegan recipes since 2016, with the aim of making it easier for everyone to eat delicious, plant-based foods “so people and the planet can thrive”.Their new recipe book One Pot Vegan is a continuation of their mission to make it as easy and fuss-free as possible to get more people eating plant-based food.From quick dinner tray bakes to tasty fakeaways, the recipes are full of flavour but (clue’s in the name!) easy on the washing up. Here are three recipes from their brand new book including a spicy Caribbean feast, loaded sweet potato wedges and a creamy ‘chicken’ supreme. Caribbean Feast“Feast your eyes on this. It’s a sweet, spicy and savoury fiesta of food, where our very own DIY jerk sauce teams up with fresh fruits and veggies to create a carnival of flavours.”Serves: 4 | Dish: Large roasting tray | Prep: 25 mins | Cook: 40 minsIngredients200g basmati rice1 x 400g tin of coconut milk1 x 400g tin of kidney beanssalt and pepper4 corn on the cob300g oyster mushrooms2 ripe plantains⅛ of a Savoy cabbage⅛ of a red cabbage1 lime3 tbsp vegan mayonnaise1 ripe mangoa handful of fresh corianderFor the jerk marinade:2 shallotsa thumb of fresh ginger6 garlic cloves1 Scotch bonnet chilli8 sprigs of fresh thyme2 tbsp light soy sauce1 tbsp maple syrup1 tbsp ground allspice1 tsp ground cinnamonvegetable oilMethodFirst prepare the jerk marinade. Peel and roughly chop the shallots, ginger and garlic, and put them into a food processor (see tip below if you don’t have a food processor). Remove the stalk from the Scotch bonnet, cut in half and discard the seeds, then pick the leaves off the thyme and add both to the food processor along with the soy sauce, maple syrup, juice from half the lime, allspice, cinnamon, three tablespoons of vegetable oil and pinches of salt and pepper.Preheat the oven to 200°C fan/220°C/gas 7. Put the rice into a sieve and rinse until the water runs clear, then transfer to a large roasting tray along with the coconut milk, 250ml of water and pinches of salt and pepper. Drain and rinse the kidney beans and add them to the tray, then stir to combine. Cut the sweetcorn cobs in half, rub four tablespoons of the jerk marinade all over them, and add them to the tray. Cover the tray with baking paper or a larger tray, and roast for 15 minutes.Meanwhile, tear any large mushrooms in half and rub them with the remaining marinade. Peel the plantains, cut them into 1cm-thick slices, put them into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Remove the baking paper from the tray and discard, then add the mushrooms and plantains to the tray, covering the rice to help it steam. Bake uncovered for 20–25 minutes, turning the plantain and mushrooms halfway.Meanwhile, prepare the slaw by finely chopping the Savoy and red cabbage. Put both into a mixing bowl along with the juice from the remaining lime half and the vegan mayonnaise. Stir to combine and set to one side.To serve, top the Caribbean feast with the slaw, then peel and dice the mango and scatter over the tray along with the coriander leaves.Don’t have a food processor? Finely chop the shallots, ginger, garlic and Scotch bonnet and add them to a pestle and mortar. Grind until mostly broken down. Add the thyme leaves along with the remaining ingredients and 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Grind into a rough paste. Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges“A celebration of the humble sweet potato. Here we roast them as wedges, as well as blend them to create our very own homemade queso. Delish.” Serves: 2–4 | Dish: Large roasting tray | Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 45 minsIngredients50g cashews1.2kg sweet potatoessalt and peppervegetable oil2 red onions3 garlic cloves1 ripe mango1 red peppera handful of fresh coriander, plus extra for topping1 lime2 x 400g tins of black beans1 tbsp Cajun seasoning4 tbsp nutritional yeast180ml unsweetened plant-based milk1 red chilli1 avocadoMethodPreheat the oven to 200°C fan/220°C/gas 7.Put the cashews into a bowl, cover with hot water from the kettle, and set to one side to soak.Dice 200g of the sweet potatoes into 1cm pieces and place in the corner of a large roasting tray. Slice the remaining sweet potatoes into wedges, then place at the other end of the tray. Season the wedges with ½ teaspoon of salt and a large pinch of pepper, drizzle over two tablespoons of vegetable oil, and toss to combine. Slice 1 red onion in half, skin on, and add it to the tray along with the garlic cloves (skins on). Roast for 20 minutes.For the salsa, cut the mango in half around the stone, score the halves in a criss-cross pattern and scoop out the flesh. Dice the red pepper, discarding the core and the seeds. Peel and dice the remaining red onion and roughly chop the coriander leaves, discarding the stalks.Add everything to a mixing bowl along with the juice from half the lime, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix everything together.Take the tray out of the oven and remove the onion, garlic cloves and diced sweet potato. Move the sweet potato wedges around the tray, then return the tray to the oven for 10 minutes.Drain and rinse the black beans. Add them to the tray along with the Cajun seasoning and gently give everything a mix. Roast for 10–15 minutes, or until the sweet potato is lightly charred.To make the queso, drain the cashews and transfer them to a high powered blender or food processor, along with the diced sweet potato, roasted red onion and garlic (skins removed from both), nutritional yeast, juice from the remaining lime half, milk, half the red chilli (seeds removed), and large pinches of salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.Remove the wedges from the oven and scatter over the salsa and half the queso. Thinly slice the remaining chilli and roughly chop the rest of the coriander leaves. Cut the avocado in half, scoop out and slice the flesh, then add it to the wedges, along with the sliced chilli and coriander leaves. Serve alongside the remaining queso.  ‘Chicken’ Supreme“It turns out fried oyster mushrooms have an uncanny resemblance to chicken, so we combine them with a rich, robust and creamy roux to create this supremely tasty dinner.”Serves: 4 | Dish: Shallow casserole pan | Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 40 minsIngredients500g oyster mushrooms3 tbsp vegan margarine1 tbsp chicken seasoning mix6 shallots3 garlic cloves3 tbsp plain flour200ml dry white wine (or 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar)500ml vegetable stock1 tsp Dijon mustard1 tsp herbes de Provence200g green beansa small handful of fresh chivesa large handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley (20g)250ml vegan single creamsalt and peppersliced baguette, to serveMethodSlice the oyster mushrooms into 1cm strips. Melt two tablespoons of the vegan margarine in a shallow casserole pan over a medium-high heat, then add the mushrooms, stir in the chicken seasoning and fry for 15–20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are crispy. Remove from the heat, spoon the mushrooms on to a plate and keep to one side.Meanwhile, peel and chop the shallots and garlic. Melt the remaining tablespoon of vegan margarine in the pan, reduce the heat to medium, then add the shallots and garlic. Fry for four minutes, stirring occasionally.Stir in the flour and fry for two minutes, then very slowly pour in the wine, stirring quickly to prevent the flour clumping together and using the wine to deglaze the pan, gathering up as much flavour as possible. Simmer for one to two minutes, then stir in the stock, mustard and herbes de Provence. Trim the ends off the green beans and add the beans to the pan. Simmer for 10 minutes, until the beans are cooked but still have a good bite left to them.Meanwhile, chop the chives and pick the parsley leaves from their stalks, then roughly chop the leaves. Add the cooked mushrooms, most of the parsley leaves and the vegan single cream to the pan, and cook through for one to two minutes.Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with the chopped chives, the remaining parsley leaves and freshly ground black pepper, and serve alongside the sliced baguette. One Pot Vegan by Roxy Pope and Ben Pook of So Vegan is published by Michael Joseph and available to buy now.

When Sony's PlayStation 5 arrives this holiday, it may be in far greater numbers than previously expected. Sony has reportedly doubled production for its next-gen console to match stronger-than-expected demand for video games during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new Bloomberg report. That reported increased amounts to 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles before March 2021. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Sony is doubling production of its upcoming PlayStation 5 console, according to a new Bloomberg report. The Japanese electronics giant is expected to produce 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles by March 2021, a 100% increase over previously reported production numbers. That increase is said to be a measure of heightened consumer demand for video games as the coronavirus pandemic keeps people around the world stuck indoors. It's unclear if production facilities will be able to fulfill Sony's request. According to the report, production of Sony's next-gen PlayStation console began in June. Sony has yet to announced the PlayStation 5's release date or price. The console was first unveiled in mid June. It comes in two versions: There's a "standard" PlayStation 5, with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and a "Digital Edition" without a disc drive, the company said in a press release. Design-wise, the two PS5 consoles are very similar. As seen above, the digital edition is symmetrical, while the standard edition has a bump where the disc drive is located.  It's unclear what the price difference will be between the two versions, but the functional difference is evident: The "digital model" is unable to read discs, while the standard model can. In practice, that means that the Digital Edition is only able to play downloaded ("digital") games. Sony representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

A research collaboration between Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Brown University, and NVIDIA has achieved exaflop performance on the Summit supercomputer with a deep learning application used to model subsurface flow in the study of nuclear waste remediation.Their achievement, which will be presented during the "Deep Learning on Supercomputers" workshop at SC19, demonstrates the promise of physics-informed generative adversarial networks (GANs) for analyzing complex, large-scale science problems."The concept of physics-informed GANs is to encode prior information from the physics into the neural network.This allows you to go well beyond the training domain, which is very important in applications where the conditions can change."GANs have been applied to model human face appearance with remarkable accuracy, noted Prabhat, a co-author on the SC19 paper who leads the Data and Analytics Services team at Berkeley Lab's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center."In science, Berkeley Lab has explored the application of vanilla GANs for creating synthetic universes and particle physics experiments; one of the open challenges thus far has been the incorporation of physical constraints into the predictions," he said.

The EU-funded research project SPRING (SPin Research IN Graphene) has celebrated its kickoff meeting on Nov. 7-8, 2019 in Donostia/San Sebastián (Spain).The meeting marks the starting point of a 4-year research project that is coordinated by CIC nanoGUNE and integrates IBM Research, Donostia International Physics Center, and University of Santiago de Compostela, Technical University of Delft and the University of Oxford.The consortium of these 6 leading European research institutions has been granted a total of €3.5 million from the European Commission under the highly competitive Horizon 2020 FET-Open call, which funds cutting-edge high-risk / high-impact interdisciplinary research projects that must lay the foundations for radically new future technologies.The SPRING project combines recent scientific breakthroughs from the consortium members to fabricate custom-crafted magnetic graphene nanostructures and test their potential as basic elements in quantum spintronic devices.The targeted long-term vision is the development of an all-graphene - environmentally friendly - platform where spins can be used for transporting, storing and processing information.As the name suggests, spin can be loosely understood as the rotation of a fundamental particle of matter around itself.
