NOBEL PRIZE: The Nobel Week Starts on Monday

On Monday, the week begins, during which we will get to know Nobel Prize winners in six areas. This year, exceptionally, two literary Noble will be awarded, including an outstanding 2018 prize, unannounced due to scandal.

Traditionally, on Monday, we will meet the Nobel Prize winner in medicine, on Tuesday in physics, and on Wednesday in chemistry. On Thursday, the world’s attention will be directed to the Hall of the Stock Exchange House in the Old Town of Stockholm, where the names of two Nobel prize winners in literature will be announced by the new secretary of the Swedish Academy Mats Malm.

This event is to be a “new opening” for the reformed Swedish Academy, which after the scandal that erupted among its members, decided not to award the Nobel Prize in 2018.

The Swedish Academy, which has existed for 233 years, has been in crisis since autumn 2017, when a Franco-Swedish photographer and director Jean-Claude Arnault, husband of Katarina Frostenson Academy member, was accused of raping and leaks about literary Nobel laureates. He also received generous grants from the Swedish Academy for the cultural club to which he invited its members.

Reports of irregularities caused mass departures of Academy members and threatened with a lack of quorum. Frostenson was forced to leave voluntarily, receiving compensation and a service apartment. The secretary Sara Danius also left the Academy. In 2018, Arnault was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for double rape on a woman.

The renewal of the Swedish Academy and the appointment of new members was possible thanks to the change in the statute of this institution, made by the King of Sweden Charles XVI Gustav. The Nobel Foundation implementing Alfred Nobel’s will forced the Academy to set up a special Nobel committee to identify the winners. In the new body, in addition to Academy members, there were also external experts for the first time.

On Friday, the Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced at the Nobel Institute in Oslo. Following the will of the founder, this is the only prize awarded in Norway, not in Sweden. The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by a five-member committee elected by the Norwegian parliament from nominations submitted by members of national parliaments. As the Norwegian Nobel committee revealed at the beginning of March, 301 candidates were received this year, 223 persons, and 78 organizations were nominated.

On Monday, October 14, in Stockholm, we will meet the Nobel Prize winner in economics. This is an additional award Nobel does not mention in his will. For this reason, it is formally called the Bank of Sweden Award Alfred Nobel.

Nobel prize nominations, which value in each field is 9 million crowns (approx. 780 thousand euros), remain secret for 50 years. The award ceremony takes place on December 10, the anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel, in Stockholm and Oslo (Nobel Peace Prize).

Google Threatens to Stop Its Search Engine Service in Australia, Why

Google has just announced that it is threatening the Australian government to stop its search engine services or search engines.

This was done by Google because it did not agree with new laws that have been issued by the Australian government where Google must pay news publishers for content displayed on Google Search.

Apart from Google, other technology companies such as Facebook are also entering and must comply with the new regulations. Then Google was the first and said that it did not agree.

“If this rule becomes law, we will have no choice but to stop Google Search services in Australia,” said Vice President of Google Australia and New Zealand, Meg Silva quoted from The Verge.

It states that Google was forced to decide this because they had no other choice and they also didn’t want to spend a lot of money just to comply with regulations in one country.

“It will bring things that we cannot sustain for this business, the digital economy, and do not fit the way search engines work,” Google continued.

Actually, Google has announced a program to pay a number of news publishers in Australia, Germany, and Brazil, but the Australian government thinks that this is still not enough so they make this law.

WhatsApp is increasingly anxious to be left by the user, now advertises in newspapers

India, which is one of the largest WhatsApp user countries in the world, is busy deleting WhatsApp and switching to rival applications such as Signal and Telegram.

Indeed WhatsApp has finally postponed its new privacy policy, but it seems that this is not enough to stem user migration.

Most recently, WhatsApp has advertised in newspapers to convince its users that they care about user privacy.

WhatsApp spent a lot of money to advertise in 10 newspapers that speak English and Hindi.

“WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. Respect for your privacy is embedded in our DNA” reads the WhatsApp ad.

WhatsApp has clarified that its data-sharing policy with Facebook does not affect the privacy of messages sent by users.

Encryption continues and WhatsApp until Facebook can’t read the messages sent. WhatsApp’s actions to advertise are actually quite reasonable.

Facebook has an estimated $5.7 billion investment in India so there is no way they will let it drift for nothing.

Such an investment is aimed at boosting digital transactions for MSMEs in India. WhatsApp has also received government permission to launch WhatsApp Pay.

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

Working from home ( work from home, WFH) continued to require workers to do their jobs remotely. Included in sending important documents. Not infrequently, what is sent is a video or large file.

Of course, large project files such as 4K and 8K videos, CAD files, and other large data often become obstacles to sharing in the cloud.

In response to this, Microsoft will increase the file upload limit from 100GB to 250GB. These upload limits will apply to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.

In addition, this upload limit is also available to personal OneDrive users. Reportedly, this feature will be available at the end of January 2021.

Microsoft in a written statement said to continue to strive to support workers around the world. He said he accepted all feedback given by customers.

“We always try to innovate and empower our users to be more productive,” wrote Microsoft employee Ankita, Saturday (16/1/2021).

Optimize for Azure

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

He added that each file is divided into several parts and each part is encrypted with a unique key, to keep the file safe.

All files will be backed up in Azure storage to make it easier for users to upload and download anywhere.

Previously, Microsoft had increased the upload limit from 15GB to 100GB in July 2020.

Microsoft Teams Will Compete with Browsers

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said Microsoft Teams will be as important as internet browsers and operating systems. This means that Teams will be a service that is prioritized by their users.

This statement came after Nadella highlighted the growth of Teams over the last few years.

According to company data, there were a surge of inactive users from 13 million users in July 2019 to 115 million users in September 2020.

Quoting UCToday , Thursday (13/1/2021), he added that Teams has turned into a communication tool as well as an organizing layer because it acts as a hub for other Microsoft services.

This is what makes Teams a platform that is expected to compete with internet browsers and operating systems.
