The reorganization places all of Vice News’ operations, including the weekly HBO series, an upcoming daily HBO production, website vertical, and YouTube channel, under the purview of Tyrangiel, who joined Vice from Bloomberg Businessweek last October. According to Politico, who first reported the news, it also means about 15 editorial staffers in New York and Los Angeles are on their way out. Additionally, Vice News foreign correspondent Harriet Salam tweets that all of Vice News’ UK-based editorial staff has been let go, as well as two other foreign correspondents, including herself. Vice Media has promoted Josh Tyrangiel to oversee all news operations at the company, while laying off as many as 18 staffers, multiple outlets reported today. Last week, when Vice Media CEO Shane Smith told Hearst Magazines Digital Media president Troy Young to expect “a bloodbath” in digital media, this might not be what he had in mind. The reports come just weeks after Vice announced a series of editorial hires and promotions in both the UK and U.S., including Ryan McCarthy as editor-in-chief of Vice News, longtime NBC/MSNBC producer Madeleine Haeringer as executive producer of the new HBO program, and company veteran Ciel Hunter as head of content. This is a developing story.
Mobile Mentioned Above Samsung Galaxy S10 (128GB, prism black) Galaxy S10 settings to change right now Comments 5 $899 $899 A new update for the Galaxy S10 is causing problems. Andrew Hoyle/CNET A new update is reportedly making its way to Samsung Galaxy S10 phones and will supposedly fix issues stemming from a previous patch. Update XXU1ASE6 for the Galaxy S10 showed up phones Wednesday, according to SamMobile. The new patch will include improvements to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the S10 camera, but more importantly, it has a fix for the May 20 update that reportedly caused myriad issues for some who downloaded the software. The problematic update, XXU1ASE5, was made available on May 20. Its description said it would improve the S10 camera’s night mode and other various fixes. Some phone owners saw their phones freezing, restarting, draining more battery and several apps were not responding after the update. Samsung then pulled XXU1ASE5 on May 28. A new update appeared in Switzerland on May 29, according to SamMobile. The European country is typically the first country to receive Galaxy phone updates and users saw a new XXU1ASE6 patch made available, which reportedly did fix problems from the May patch.Samsung didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.

5:09 The Big Red Plasma Ball at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is being used to better understand our sun. Jeff Miller/UW-Madison The sun, at about 1.4 million kilometers wide, is a huge ball of plasma at the center of our solar system. We’ve studied it for millennia, dating back to ancient history, and now we’re even sending probes to touch it. One of the most intriguing aspects of the sun is how its magnetic field influences the entire solar system. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison wanted to better understand this process and so they went full Hollywood mad scientist and built their own “mini-sun.”Their creation, which won’t be used for evil and is detailed in the journal Nature Physics on July 29, is millions times smaller than the real deal at just 3 meters wide and looks kind of like a human brain being probed with wires and steel.They’ve dubbed it the Big Red Ball. The researchers pump in helium gas (which is present in the actual sun) and turn it into plasma. A magnet at the center of the Ball creates a magnetic field and once the team applies an electric current to the machine it accurately mimics how the real sun’s plasma and magnetic fields usually operate. Sci-Tech Share your voice Tags “Satellite missions have documented pretty well where the fast wind comes from,” said Ethan Peterson, lead author on the study and a graduate student at UW-Madison, in a press release. “We were trying to study specifically how the slow solar wind is generated and how it evolves as it travels toward Earth.”They turned their attention toward the solar wind, particles that stream out from the sun and into the solar system. Within the Ball, they were able to recreate the Parker Spiral, the magnetic field that twists out from the sun through the entirety of the solar system. Peterson dubs the team’s recreation as a “large-scale map” of the spiral and confirms how it is created by the sun’s plasma flows.In addition, the researchers also identified plasma “burps,” which are huge ejections of plasma that stream out of the sun and sometimes fuel the solar wind. With probes inside the Ball monitoring the work, the team could see how they moved and how fast the plasma was spinning.”These ejections are observed by satellites, but no one knows what drives them,” Peterson said. “We ended up seeing very similar burps in our experiment, and identified how they develop.”The Big Red Ball’s experiments are designed to complement the existing missions to better understand the sun. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe is currently circling the solar system’s big ball of gas, hoping to unravel more of the mystery’s surrounding its atmosphere and the solar wind. Other researchers are getting in on the fun in the sun too, with a team last week reporting “terminator” events across the sun cause plasma tsunamis.
