Smallest ever star in the known universe discovered - EBLM project
A star about the size of Saturn - the smallest ever measured - has been identified by astronomers.
Our discovery reveals how small stars can be. Alexander Boetticher
The smallest star yet measured has been discovered by a team of astronomers led by the University of Cambridge. With a size just a sliver larger than that of Saturn, the gravitational pull at its stellar surface is about 300 times stronger than what humans feel on Earth.
The star is likely as small as stars can possibly become, as it has just enough mass to enable the fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium. If it were any smaller, the pressure at the centre of the star would no longer be sufficient to enable this process to take place. Hydrogen fusion is also what powers the Sun, and scientists are attempting to replicate it as a powerful energy source here on Earth.
Reliance Jio - JioFiber Preview Offer will give 100GB data per month at 100 Mbps, official reveals site
Reliance Jio's JioFiber broadband service is expected to be unveiled around Diwali. Jio could offer 100GB of data per month at 100 Mbps speed for three months, under its JioFibre Preview offer. Post exhaustion of 100GB, speed will go down to 1 Mbps.
Reliance Jio's JioFiber broadband service is expected to be unveiled around Diwali. It looks like details of the service have accidentally been leaked on Jio's official website ahead of launch. The page went live for some time before it was taken down by the company.
Going by the leaked information, Jio could offer 100GB of data per month at 100 Mbps speed for three months, under its JioFibre Preview offer.
Post exhaustion of 100GB, speed will go down to 1 Mbps. Reliance Jio will apparently ask for a seucrity deposit of Rs 4,500 for its JioFiber broadband service, which will be refundable.
Reliance Jio's JioFiber can be used to stream 4K content, something that has been talked about in the past as well. Users will be able to connect multiple devices to JioFiber to enjoy high-speed Internet. The site even lists a registration page where users can sign-up for Jio's JioFiber broadband service.
People will need to enter their address details as well as personal details which includes city, pincode, address, name, mobile, email etc.
Depending on details, it looks like users can go for two options - to either register for JioFiber services or enhance Jio coverage in their building. This means that Reliance Jio is currently expanding its JioFiber broadband network across cities to provide maximum coverage.
Going by the list of cities available, Jio will most likely start with providing its JioFiber broadband service in cities like Ahmedabad, Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Surat, Vadodara, and Vishakhapatnam.
A previous report in Economic Times suggested that Jio could offer 100GB data at Rs 500. In May, Reliance Jio tweeted out from its official Twitter handle saying the JioFiber Preview Offer is currently being offered on a trial basis in some cities. However, the company did not give out details on data plans. We'll have to wait and watch if the Jio is planning to roll out 100GB of free data at 100 Mbps speeds for three months under its JioFibre
Relaince Jio is expected to go for the disruptive pricing model, just like it did with the Jio mobile network. The company had earlier indicated that on the pricing front, it will offer "value for the customer." Meanwhile, rival Airtel is currently offering customers 1000GB data free for a year if they sign up for the broadband service via online. The offer is limited to users in Delhi and NCR. ACT offers 1GB per second internet speeds in Hyderabad with 1TB download limit at a rental price of Rs 5,999. The company has already expanded operations to Delhi and is offering 100 Mbps speeds.

Hello everyone! This is Sparsh, and this my debut clean cover of Eminem's song, "Not Afraid" (with my classical touch) from his album "Recovery" as my rapper avatar, "PURHYTHM". I feel like "Not Afraid" has been my power song ever since I heard it for the first time and Eminem became my idol in the rap genre. He has inspired me so much with his powerful songs and lyrics (minus curses), and I aspire that one day, I could get to meet him and sing (or rap!) with him. It's always been my dream to inspire BILLIONS of people one day with my musical talent, and I wish that dream comes true. Please like, share, and subscribe if you liked my cover! :-)
Big thanks to my parents for their support and special thanks to Pratik Shah for recording this for me at your studio!
Sparsh Shah wants to show people how they can transcend every difficulty that comes their way in life and how they can start a chain reaction to be a guide for other people who want to turn their life around as well.
Sparsh is a 13-year old child prodigy, singer/song writer/rapper born with brittle bones (130+fractures), but an unbreakable spirit. He became a worldwide internet sensation with his Purhythm versions of Eminem covers. He aspires to inspire and sing in front of a billion people one day.
Sparsh has been learning Hindustani classical music for the last seven-and-a-half years and American vocal music for the last three years. Sparsh is multi-talented. He performs at community events and has appeared on local radio stations and television shows, besides hosting shows as an MC.

In contrast, of its 48,400 overseas employees 1,800 are already crorepatis in rupee terms. To be sure, the high salaries for skilled professionals in developed markets are a reflection of them being paid in foreign currencies and commensurate with several years of experience.
Indian IT companies are likely to hire freshers in the US initially. But even that strategy will not mitigate cost pressures for long as companies compete for similar talent.
