The fusion energy device kept a temperature of 180 million degrees Fahrenheit, or 100 million degrees Celsius, for 20 seconds
The Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) fusion reactor recently set a world record by maintaining its plasma temperature at a super-hot 180 million degrees Fahrenheit for 20 seconds. It may not seem like a long time, but no previous fusion plant has operated for more than 10 seconds under these conditions - even the KSTAR reactor only lasted eight seconds in 2019.

Djokovic, an eight-times champion in Melbourne, was widely harangued on Tuesday after reportedly issuing a list of demands in a letter to Tennis Australia that included moving quarantined players into private homes with tennis courts and getting them better meals. MELBOURNE - World number one Novak Djokovic published an open letter to the Australian public on Twitter on Wednesday in which he tried to "clarify" demands he appeared to make to the organisers of the Australian Open. Djokovic, an eight-times champion in Melbourne, was widely harangued on Tuesday after reportedly issuing a list of demands in a letter to Tennis Australia that included moving quarantined players into private homes with tennis courts and getting them better meals. Australian media zeroed in on the demands, portraying them as petulant and selfish while fellow player Nick Kyrgios called him a "tool". In Wednesday's tweet, Djokovic said his letter to Australian Open director Craig Tiley had been taken the wrong way. "My good intentions for my fellow competitors in Melbourne have been misconstrued as being selfish, difficult and ungrateful," said Djokovic. "This couldn't be farther from the truth." Djokovic said he was merely speaking up for fellow players who were not being treated as well as him. At least 72 players have been barred from leaving their rooms for two weeks after coronavirus cases were detected on their charter flights into the country. Others are allowed out of their rooms for up to five hours a day to train under strictly-controlled conditions. "I genuinely care about my fellow players and I also understand very well how the world is run and who gets bigger and better and why," said the 33-year-old Serb. "I've earned my privileges the hard way and for that reason, it is very difficult for me to be a mere onlooker knowing how much every help, gesture and good word mattered to me when I was small and insignificant in the world pecking order. "Hence, I use my position of privilege to be of service as much as I can where and when needed." Djokovic said his letter to Tiley was a "brainstorm about potential improvements that could be made to the quarantine of players in Melbourne that were in full lockdown" and not a list of demands. "There were a few suggestions and ideas that I gathered from other players from our chat group and there was no harm intended to try and help. "Things in the media escalated and there was a general impression that the players (including myself) are ungrateful, weak and selfish because of their unpleasant feelings in quarantine," he wrote. "I am very sorry that is has come to that because I do know how grateful many are." The Australian Open is due to start on 8 February. Download the Eyewitness News app to your iOS or Android device.
Yes, baby teeth fall out. But they're still important — here's how to help your kids look after them - The Conversation AU
Dental problems in children can affect their overall health and well-being. You can help establish good dental habits with your children from an early age.
Baby teeth, or milk teeth, act like lighthouses to guide the adult ones to their correct destination. A baby tooth will become wobbly and fall out because the adult tooth that follows pushes through to break down the roots of the baby tooth. To lose baby teeth, particularly the first one, is a rite of passage for children. And while most baby teeth do fall out, some kids wont lose all their baby teeth. Sometimes, the adult teeth simply dont form. In an average class, one or two students, or 6% of children, will not form at least one adult tooth (this doesnt include those with missing wisdom teeth). A missing adult tooth will often mean the baby tooth remains in place into adulthood. For this and other reasons, its important to look after your childs baby teeth. Healthy baby teeth are paramount to childrens health and well-being both in the present and into adulthood. Kids get cavities too Just like in adult teeth, baby teeth can develop cavities (holes). Factors including cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth, regular consumption of sugary drinks and snacks, and not brushing well can make cavities more likely. Untreated cavities can grow to affect or even kill the nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth. If this happens, your child can suffer from severe toothache and infection. These are among the most common preventable reasons for children to require dental treatment under general anaesthetic. In some instances, it may be necessary to remove a baby tooth if its infected or has a very large cavity. This can potentially cause overcrowding. If a baby tooth is lost before the adult successor is ready, the teeth on either side drift into the space. Lacking space, the adult tooth may eventually come through in the wrong place. In such cases, your child is more likely to need braces. Read more: Curious Kids: why do we lose our baby teeth? Dental problems can lead to bigger problems Left untreated, infected baby teeth can affect your childs health and well-being. Children with healthy smiles fare better at school relative to those who suffer with dental problems. Children who experience dental pain may lose sleep, have difficulty concentrating and participating in class, and miss school altogether. Poor dental health also affects childrens physical development. Children with sore teeth may skip meals or eat less, which can affect their nutrition and growth. We also know cavities in baby teeth are associated with an increased risk of suffering from the same issues into adulthood. Some children may keep some of their baby teeth into adulthood.Christian Hermann/Unsplash Some signs your child may have dental problems A child will describe and experience a toothache differently to adults, but there are a few signs you can look out for. Your child may:
- complain of a sharp poking pain, an annoying, sore or itchy tooth, or even an earache
- avoid hot, cold, sweet or hard, chewy foods
- take longer than usual to finish a meal
- complain about food getting stuck in their teeth
- have difficulty brushing their teeth
- have trouble falling asleep or wake up during the night more often than usual
- be too tired to participate in class
- perform poorly at school
- experience difficulty socialising and speaking
- be more irritable or grumpy than usual.
- use positive, child-friendly terms when referring to the dentist, such as the tooth fairys friend
- avoid emotionally laden words such as needle, which may frighten children
- avoid threatening children with consequences for poor behaviour
- avoid sharing poor dental experiences
- make the visit fun by role playing going to the dentist at home beforehand, or likening the visit to a play date.
- talk about teeth and why theyre important
- help your children brush their teeth with a soft, age-appropriate toothbrush
- let your children have fun (for example, use toothbrushes that feature their favourite characters).
ASUS ROG Flow X13 and XG Mobile Are On Their Way To Malaysia In Three Different Options - Lowyat.NET

One of ASUS’s main star during its recent CES 2021 outing was the ROG Flow X13 which the company referred to as the worlds most powerful 13-inch convertible gaming laptop. To accompany the new laptop, ASUS has also created the ROG XG Mobile which is a slim external GPU box that is equipped with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. Given its exquisite nature, one may think that the ROG Flow X13 and ROG XG Mobile may only arrive into our market at a much later date. To our surprise, ASUS has recently informed media members during an online technical seminar that the company is planning to release them starting by the end of this month. Specifically, the ROG Flow X13 will be released as three different options as shown in the presentation slides below: When asked whether the ROG XG Mobile can be obtained as a stand-alone product, we were told by ASUS Malaysias representative that there is no such plan at the moment. At the same time, the company also stated that it has yet to finalise the pricing for the ROG Flow X13 as well as ROG Flow X13 and ROG XG Mobile bundle for Malaysia. Naturally, we will keep you posted once we receive more information but it goes without saying that the ROG Flow X13 will not come cheap, especially for the ROG XG Mobile bundle. So, be prepared.
