What's more, economies around the world are facing soaring inflation, particularly when it comes to food and energy, in large part due to the war...

    The new generation of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is here, the South Korean shell format mobile that rises to the next level thanks to more premium materials, the Snapdragon 888 and an external screen that promises to be much more useful. When Samsung launched the first Fold, although there were criticisms of the external screen, the truth is that it was accepted very willingly because it was a very interesting concept: carrying a tablet the size of a more conventional mobile. The Fold is the concept of a mobile that can be turned into a tablet and to consume and create content is a great device, but there was another niche to explore, that of mobile phones with a conventional screen that would fold to occupy less in the pocket. That’s where devices like the Motorola Razr and the Z Flip come into play. Now, it’s time to usher in a new generation, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 that comes with interesting news and, above all, a much more mature design than that of the previous generation. Galaxy...

    They could be used to investigate inaccessible places. A group of engineers from the Harvard University has created a school of robot fish. These are able to coordinate and mimic the movements of real animals. Furthermore, they can be programmed to operate without the need for an external control.

    A new study rivals the decades-long theory that 'dark matter,' which is said to exert a gravitational force that causes a strange behavior of stars within galaxies. Dark matter is a name given by scientists to an unknown mass that only interacts with regular matter through gravity and does not emit, absorb or reflect light. It has never been directly detected and now, an international team thinks they know why - because it does not exist. Researchers identified signs of the external field effect (EFE), which is a faint gravitational tide that was observed in orbital speeds of stars in more than 150 galaxies. This effect, according to the study, does not fall in line with theories about dark matter, but coincides with Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), also known as 'modified gravity.' MOND states the internal motions of an object in the cosmos should not only depend on the mass of the object itself, but also the gravitational pull from all other masses in the universe — 'the external field effect.'

    The number of illegal crossings at the external borders of the European Union has decreased by almost a fifth in the first half of this year to stand at 36,400, said Monday Frontex, the European agency for the management of border cooperation outside. However, this downward trend does not apply to the Western Balkan route or the central migration route via the Mediterranean.
