    AN international group of scientists and government agencies has voted to get rid of the 'leap second' by 2035. This will be a big change to the current timekeeping system even though many people have never heard of leap seconds. 1The US was one of the countries that voted to abolish the leap secondCredit: Getty The International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) is the organization that's behind how we measure time. It held a conference in France earlier this month, where scientists decided that the leap second is no longer necessary. A leap second is similar to a leap year. It refers to a measure of time that sometimes gets added to clocks to make up for a difference in time between how the Earth is rotating and atomic clock time.

    If the days feel like they get shorter as you get older, you may not be imagining it. On June 29, 2022, the Earth made one full rotation that took 1.59 milliseconds less than the average day length of 86,400 seconds, or 24 hours. While a 1.59 millisecond shortening might not seem like much, it is part of a larger and peculiar trend. Indeed, on July 26, 2022, another new record was nearly set when the Earth finished its day 1.50 milliseconds shorter than usual, as reported by The Guardian and the time-tracking website Time and Date. Time and Date notes that the year 2020 had the highest number of short days since scientists started using atomic clocks to take daily measurements in the 1960s. Scientists first started to notice the trend in 2016. While the length of an average day may vary slightly in the short-term, in the long-term the length of the day has been increasing since the Earth-moon system was formed. That's because over time, the force of gravity has moved energy from the Earth — via...
    The Earth is spinning faster than usual and the days are now shorter. This is at least an observation made by scientists UK National Physical Laboratory. The data collected compares to what it was 50 years ago. According to the data recorded on June 29, the Earth’s complete rotation lasted 1.59 milliseconds within 24 hours. Some scientists already think it necessary to review the number of seconds on our atomic clocks. “If Earth’s rapid rotation continues, that first negative leap will lead to the introduction of a second”Astrophysicist said Graham Jones to the stage TimeandDate.com. “It must keep civil time – which is based on the super-regular rhythm of atomic clocks – synchronized with solar time, which is based on the movement of the sun in the sky. »He continued. The consequences? According to the scientist, this change in the clock is still not without consequences. It can have effects on computer systems. “The impact of a negative leap second is largely untested; it can have a devastating effect on software that relies on timers or schedulers”The researchers noted....

    Jaelan Phillips has the potential to become a star pass rusher in his second season. Emmanuel Ogbah is fresh off his new long-term contract. Melvin Ingram was the big defensive acquisition in the offseason. And don’t forget about Andrew Van Ginkel. The Miami Dolphins, who send blitzers as creatively as any other defense in the NFL, could have an already fierce pass rush only get better in 2022. Phillips comes off a 2021 season where he set a Dolphins rookie record with 8 1/2 sacks. He thrived when asked to put his head down and get after the quarterback, closer to what he was predominantly asked to do in his final college season at the University of Miami that led him to be selected in the first round of his draft. He has worked this offseason to become a more balanced outside linebacker while getting leaner. “Never satisfied,” was one way Phillips described his approach heading into Year 2 in the first week of training camp. “Last year was a great learning experience. I’m definitely looking to build on that.”...
    CONOR BENN is ready to leap up in weight for a massive-money second-generation clash with Chris Eubank Jr. After Brighton's son of Chris Jr secured an impressive points win over Liam Williams on Saturday, Nigel Benn’s 25-year-old son said he fancied his chances in a potential catchweight bout. 2Conor Benn has revealed he is prepared to step up in weight to face Chris Eubank JrCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun 2Eubank Jr entertained the idea of fighting Benn after outpointing Liam Williams on Saturday nightCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Middleweight Eubank Jr, 32, entertained the idea but questioned how serious the welterweight was about reviving the legendary two-fight rivalry their iconic fathers shared. But Benn - now closing in on a world title shot at the 10st 7lbs limit - insists he is seriously considering packing on a few pounds, and making plenty too, with a move up toward Eubank Jr’s 11st 6lbs stomping ground.

    Earth is spinning faster than it was half a century ago, and if it continues speeding up scientists say they may have to remove a second from the atomic clock.  The speed our planet rotates on its axis has varied throughout history. In fact, Earth rotated 420 times per year millions of years ago, but now does so 365 times. However, sometimes the speed of rotation varies slightly, affecting the global timekeeper - the atomic clock - requiring leap seconds to be added when the world runs slightly faster.  Now, UK National Physical Laboratory scientist, Peter Whibberley, has warned that if the rotation rate increases further, a negative leap second may be needed.   Earth is spinning faster than it was half a century ago, and if it continues speeding up scientists say they may have to remove a second from the atomic clock THE EARTH ROTATES ON ITS AXIS OVER 365 TIMES EACH TIME IT ORBITS THE SUN The rotation of the Earth, or its spin around its own axis, has varied over the 4.6 billion year history of our world....
    Getty The New York Knicks have a lot of returning players from last season’s playoffs squad, and they will be counting on them to make big leaps in hopes of going even deeper into the postseason. With so many young players on the roster, development is important and while Julius Randle will again be the focal point led by veterans such as Kemba Walker, Derrick Rose and Evan Fournier, the Knicks will need some of these youngsters to step up. One such player is Immanuel Quickley, someone who is coming off a solid rookie season but is expected to make an even bigger leap in year two. While there is such a thing as a sophomore slump, the team will be hoping Quickley makes a leap similar to what RJ Barrett did in his second season. To his credit, Quickley did work on a lot of things in the offseason, and he told reporters just what they were.How Quickley Will Take the Next Step Getty Coming off All-Rookie Second Team honors, Quickley already has the eye of...
    Saudi Aramco logo is pictured at the oil facility in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia October 12, 2019.Maxim Shemetov | Reuters Saudi state oil giant Aramco reported a stunning 288% increase in net income to $25.5 billion for the second quarter, while maintaining its dividend of $18.8 billion, as big oil benefits from higher prices and a recovery in worldwide demand.  Aramco's net income of $25.5 billion for the quarter compares to $6.6 billion in the same quarter of 2020. The result beat expectations, with analysts expecting a median net income of $24.7 billion for the quarter.  "Our second quarter results reflect a strong rebound in worldwide energy demand and we are heading into the second half of 2021 more resilient and more flexible, as the global recovery gains momentum," Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser said in a company statement published Sunday. Aramco said net income for the first half of the year was $47.2 billion, compared to $23.2 billion in the first half of 2020, representing a 103% increase. The company said the results were supported by the global easing...
    Magic Leap CEO Peggy Johnson says the mixed reality headset company will be shipping limited quantities of a second-generation device at the end of this year, with broader availability in the first quarter of 2022. Johnson offered a timeline for the Magic Leap 2 launch in an interview with Protocol. She says the long-awaited device is half the size of the first-generation headset and about 20 percent lighter. It’s optimized for professional use and is designed to be wearable for long periods, and it’s supposed to double the Magic Leap One’s field of view. “For frontline workers, the product has to be something comfortable that they can wear all day long,” Johnson told Protocol. Magic Leap left the consumer market last year Magic Leap has spent the past year transitioning from an all-purpose mixed reality company to a specifically business-focused one, following a mass layoff and the departure of founding CEO Rony Abovitz. Johnson, who stepped up as CEO in July 2020, is a former Microsoft executive with a background in enterprise tech. Johnson told Protocol that she sees a...

    Measurement is a type of solar time that is expressed in Unified Universal Time (UT1). This solar time is compared to the International Atomic Time (TAI). TIA is an accurate time scale that collects and collects output from approximately 200 atomic hours worldwide. The deviation of UT1 from TAI within 24 hours reveals the actual length of the day. If the planetary rotation and the constant pulse of the atomic clock are inconsistent, scientists may use a second positive or negative flow to reconnect. U.S. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a leap has been added to Unified Universal Time (UTC) to keep up with astronomical speeds. With the change in rotational speed, the need to spend a second time to reflect the change continued to be debated. A “negative leap second” had not been done before, but 27 leap seconds were added, and it took the Earth more than a decade and more than 24 hours to complete its rotation. Although seconds on the lap are ideal for keeping astronomical observations up to date, it...
    “If only there were fewer hours in a day,” said no one, ever. Nevertheless, Earth slows down for no one. In fact, according to global time officials, it’s speeding up, prompting suggestions to shorten the minute by a second, the Telegraph reported. Data shows our former 24-hour daily rotation is decreasing incrementally, making the day marginally shorter. For example, Sunday lasted only 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59.9998927 seconds, according to TimeAndDate.com. And though the planet’s rotation rate may speed up or slow down slightly from day to day, due to natural terrestrial and celestial alterations, astronomical calendar trends indicate that recent years have become shorter overall. Case in point, 2020 beat 2005’s shortest day 28 times, and 2021 is slated to be about 19 milliseconds short of a typical year, with an average daily deficit of 0.5 milliseconds. The world’s clock watchers are used to tinkering with time. Since the development of the atomic clock in the ’60s, “leap seconds” have been added 27 times to make up for slowing rotation, according to EarthSky.org. However, the last...

Through his age-27 season, usually the generic marker for an NBA player’s athletic prime, Tracy McGrady played in 683 of 788 possible regular-season games (87 percent). And even that is perhaps a slight undercount as a measure of health and availability since he only played in 64 games as an 18-year-old rookie for the Raptors, with inexperience as much of a factor as health. After that age-27 season, he played in just 255 of 396 possible games (65 percent) and was out of the league at 33. McGrady is already in the Hall-of-Fame, thanks to seven All-Star appearances and a pair of scoring titles, but that relatively brief and largely anonymous post-prime tail to his career has certainly depressed his legacy. We’re moving further and further away from his personal peak — the 2002-03 season — but every time I look at the numbers, I’m amazed. I know what I’m going to see,...
    He barely even needed to paws! A cat stuck in a burning apartment in Harlem took an incredible leap of faith out of the window to officers below, hair-raising video shows. Aaron Ganaway recorded the orange tabby — which appeared half-blackened by the blaze —  on the second-floor ledge of the building on East 135th Street and Fifth Avenue Saturday evening, NBC New York reported. As the fire inched closer, the brave feline tried to scale down the side of the building before it ultimately let go — narrowly missed the officers on the ground who were trying to catch it, the footage shows. Thankfully, the cat survived the fall and was brought to a local animal shelter, where it was treated for smoke inhalation, the outlet reported. Seven people, including two cops, were injured in the blaze started by an unidentified man who did not live in the building, police said. Police said the man locked himself in a second-story unit and lit the fire when they showed up to enforce a restraining order. It’s unclear whether charges...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Dragonfly Thrift Boutique in Miami has all sorts of contemporary items you would expect to find: furniture, clothing, ladies’ accessories, handbags, and then there is the unexpected. Every dollar spent helps women who are rebuilding their lives after being incarcerated. It’s part of a nonprofit organization called LEAP or Ladies Empowerment and Action Program. CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo caught up with some team members to discuss their transition. Store manager Nancy Denike is a participant, who is getting her life on track after serving a five-year sentence for fraud. “Being incarcerated was not whatever I dreamed would happen for me the first time I was in trouble the first time I had anything to the court system or criminal justice system and that was an eye-opener.” Download The New CBS4 News App Here.  A former professional assistant, she was released last January and despaired over what was next. “I didn’t have a place to go, so I was applying to different places to live and continue with my life, but because I didn’t have a...
