    Here’s another series for all those teen life and high school drama lovers. That phase of life when we are transitioning from a school kid to becoming a responsible adult with all those small tiffs with our parents and teachers when they are trying to explain us something or clearing out their point, but we feel that they can’t understand what we are going through, all can be felt in this series.

    OnePlus, an emerging tech company known for its fast performance and near-stock Android software (while not burning a hole in your pocket), has announced the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro its latest flagship for this year. People have been wondering if the departure of the co-founder Carl Pei from the company will have an effect on future products, but this new flagship is quite impressive. Let's start with the big three: hardware, software, and camera.

    Sherrie Littlejohn, who broke race and gender barriers in the 1980s as one of the first black women in computer science leadership, was overworked and dog-tired her entire time as a graduate student at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Littlejohn worked at Bell Telephone Laboratories in Naperville, Illinois during the daytime while taking classes for her master’s degree in computer science at nighttime. She graduated from Illinois Tech in 1982 after finishing her undergraduate at Xavier University in 1979. To this day, she still recalls taking her fair share of naps in Stuart Building during night classes just to wake up at 1 a.m. to see her classmates still working.

    The Pomodoro technique is a time management method, developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s. It consists of setting a timer to break down your studying into intervals of 25 minutes each, separated by five minutes breaks. The idea is that the timer instills a sense of urgency. Rather than procrastinating that assignment all day long, you can set yourself to do as much of it as possible in the 25 minute time-span.

    A group of scientists discovered the perfect fabrics for handmade face masks: a natural or cotton silk, a blend of chiffon and cotton, all of which tend to extract droplets and aerosols efficiently. When it becomes difficult to sustain physical distance, including when shopping, the revised recommendations suggest wearing a fabric covering or a mask shield.

    Containers are virtualized components of an Operating System (OS) that use “namespaces” technology in the OS where multiple applications can be run isolated without interfering with each other on a single piece of hardware. Imagine a software developer who wants to run multiple versions of applications in a single system. The system will not allow such processes. Here is how a container technology called Docker fits in! Docker will create a virtualization environment on top of the existing OS. In simple terms, containers are virtual environments except the OS is virtualized instead of hardware typically used in virtual machines. A developer can run multiple applications in separate containers in a single system without applications interfering with each other. This is one of the common use cases in the Information Technology (IT) industry, where developers want to test their applications on multiple versions of a software component.
