Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke almost died after season 1

first_imgEmilia ClarkeHBO Asia Official TwitterBefore Emilia Clarke became a worldwide sensation after starring as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, she faced two threatening brain aneurysms. Emilia made some serious revelations and it has made many to think about the several brain diseases and how the actress opened up about something that almost took her life.Game of Thrones season eight is going to air in April and before the final season will wrap up, show’s main lead, Emilia Clarke, has revealed that she has undergone two brain surgeries in the last eight years. This is apparently the very first time when Clarke has opened up about the disease and how it affected her personal life.Emilia Clarke wrote for The New Yorker where she talked about the very first time she felt something inside her head. As per Emilia, while doing the plank exercise with her trainer, she felt that there was something that was squeezing her brain. When she tried to ignore it, the pain got severe to that extent when she had to crawl her way to the locker room.”I reached the toilet, sank to my knees, and proceeded to be violently, voluminously ill. Meanwhile, the pain shooting, stabbing, constricting pain was getting worse. At some level, I knew what was happening: my brain was damaged.”Emilia Clarke then went on to describe the process of her diagnosis and how she ended up going through a three-hour major surgery and even spent four days in the ICU. While talking about the subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), Clarke stated that it was caused by bleeding into the space surrounding the brain. Daenerys and Jon in conversation.Game of Thrones/ TwitterWhen Emilia Clarke woke up after the operation, she learned that the procedure had failed and she had massive bleeding. It was made clear to her that the chances of her survival were pretty slim if they did not operate on her again. The second time, the doctors went through her skull to operate. After spending roughly a month in the hospital, she felt like a shell of herself.”My mind has blocked them out. But I do remember being convinced that I wasn’t going to live.”What is Subarachnoid hemorrhage?Subarachnoid hemorrhage is bleeding into subarachnoid space — the area between the arachnoid membrane and the Pia mater surrounding the brain. The symptoms are — severe headache, vomiting, fever, and sometimes seizures. Several patients have reported having neck pain before the diagnosis.Subarachnoid hemorrhage occurs as a result of a head injury or spontaneously. The diagnosis can be determined by a CT scan of the head of done within the first six hours.Treatment for Subarachnoid hemorrhage is prompt neurosurgery or radiologically guilder interventions.

She is going to share screen space with Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Kit Harington in the last and final season of Game of Thrones, where she is going to portray the role of Daenerys Targaryen.last_img read more

Nintendo Releases Updated Switch With Better Battery

first_img Popular on Variety The refresh of the original Switch isn’t the only way Nintendo aims to keep up the momentum of the game console. Earlier this month, the company introduced a Switch Lite model that’s all about mobile gameplay. That device, which cannot be connected to a TV, will be available for $200 this September.Even before this refresh, the Switch had already been one of Nintendo’s most popular game consoles ever. The company revealed in April that it had sold close to 35 million units since first introducing the Switch in late 2016. With that, the Switch even surpassed the sales of the Nintendo 64 game console. Nintendo just refreshed its wildly successful Switch game console, but the company isn’t giving existing Switch owners many reasons to upgrade: The renewed game console comes with a better battery that guarantees up to 9 hours of game play, while otherwise sticking with the same design and features of the original Switch.The new model can be used to play up to 5.5 hours of “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” according to a comparison on Nintendo’s website, which was first spotted by Polygon. The original Switch on the other hand was only capable of playing the game for up to 3 hours.In addition to updating the battery, Nintendo apparently also swapped out the chipsets and memory of the device. This step could contribute to the battery savings, but is likely also improving the margins on the game console.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

BGU security team says vulnerability found in Samsung Knox

Pentagon clears use of Samsung’s devices More information: in.bgu.ac.il/en/Pages/news/samsung_breach.aspxcenter_img An alleged vulnerability in the container design is what caught the security researchers’ attention. The researchers said they believe the alleged breach “enables easy interception of data communications between the secure container and the external world including file transfers, emails and browser activity.” The vulnerability was uncovered by Mordechai Guri, part of a research team at the Cyber Security Labs, discovered during an unrelated research task. A BGU report posted Tuesday presented details of the findings: “The Knox architecture features a regular phone environment as well as a secure container that is supposed to add security protection to the phone. All data and communications that take place within the secure container are protected and even if a malicious application should attack the non-secure part all the protected data should be inaccessible under all circumstances. However, the newly found breach can be used to bypass all Knox security measures. By simply installing an ‘innocent’ app on the regular phone (in the non-secure container) all communications from the phone can be captured and exposed.” Guri said, “We are also contacting Samsung in order to provide them with the full technical details of the breach so it can be fixed immediately.” The university’s Cyber Security Labs have been conducting research on mobile device security as well as network security for seven years. Samsung, according to the WSJ report, said it was looking into the allegations, and takes all security vulnerability claims seriously. The WSJ report said that a Samsung spokesperson, however, noted that the BGU lab’s breach of the system appeared to have been carried out on a device that was not fully loaded with the extra software that a corporate client would use in conjunction with Knox. (Phys.org) —Israeli researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) said a security flaw was discovered by a team member, a PhD student, and that this vulnerability could enable interception of data on Samsung mobile devices based on the Knox architecture. The discovery of the alleged security flaw was reported earlier this week in The Wall Street Journal,. Fundamentally, the BGU discovery report involves Samsung Knox, which the South Korean giant announced earlier this year as a secure platform solution in mobile architecture for BYOD business environments, providing security hardening from the hardware through to the application layer. Knox is a container solution for separating business and personal use of a mobile device, in step with the Samsung For Enterprise (SAFE) program, to promote the readiness of Samsung devices for enterprise use.

Radioisotope studies show the continental crust formed 3 billion years ago

The content is provided for information purposes only. More information: “Emergence of modern continental crust about 3 billion years ago” Nature Geoscience, 2015. DOI: 10.1038/ngeo2466AbstractThe continental crust is the principal record of conditions on the Earth during the past 4.4 billion years. However, how the continental crust formed and evolved through time remains highly controversial. In particular, the composition and thickness of juvenile continental crust are unknown. Here we show that Rb/Sr ratios can be used as a proxy for both the silica content and the thickness of the continental crust. We calculate Rb/Sr ratios of the juvenile crust for over 13,000 samples, with Nd model ages ranging from the Hadean to Phanerozoic. The ratios were calculated based on the evolution of Sr isotopes in the period between the TDM Nd model age and the crystallization of the samples analysed. We find that the juvenile crust had a low silica content and was largely mafic in composition during the first 1.5 billion years of Earth’s evolution, consistent with magmatism on a pre-plate tectonics planet. About 3 billion years ago, the Rb/Sr ratios of the juvenile continental crust increased, indicating that the newly formed crust became more silica-rich and probably thicker. This transition is in turn linked to the onset of plate tectonics5 and an increase of continental detritus into the oceans. Earth’s crust slowly being destroyed © 2015 Phys.org One of the difficulties with determining the age of the Earth’s crust is that the crust itself is constantly undergoing melting and re-deposition due to subduction. This is a larger factor for the ocean floor than in continental crust because the continental crust is thick and buoyant, making it less susceptible to subduction. By combining information from various radioisotope pairs found in the continental crust, one can unearth clues as to how the crust was formed and when. In this paper, Dhuime, et al. studied the abundance of rubidium compared to strontium. Rubidium (87Rb) becomes strontium-87 (87Sr) through radioactive decay. Strontium-87 has a half-life of 48.8 billion years. Strontium-86, the most abundant isotope of Sr, is stable and does not undergo radioactive decay. Therefore, the abundance of 87Sr in the continental crust can be traced to the radioactive decay of 87Rb, and based on its half-life, one can determine the age of a rock sample.Whenever the Earth’s crust re-melts or is formed from magma deposition, the amount of 87Rb and silica increases in the residual melt, but the amount of 86Sr does not. Consequently, 87Rb/86Sr correlates with silica content. The silica content is important because the composition of the continental crust is predominantly silica, while the early Earth’s crust was likely mafic, or composed of predominantly iron and magnesium. To calculate 87Rb/86Sr, Dhuime, et al. first determined the 87Sr-to-86Sr ratio and then determined what the ratio was at the time when the crustal melt crystallized. From this they were able to calculate 87Rb/86Sr and therefore determine the amount of silica present at various time periods.This calculation was performed for over 13,000 volcanic and plutonic rock samples of varying ages, based on neodymium model ages. Results show that at about 3 billion years ago the Earth’s continental crust transitioned from a mafic crust to a silica-rich crust. Silica content increased from 3 billion years to 1 billion years ago. At 1 billion years, the amount of silica started to gradually decrease. This result coincides with previous studies using other radioisotope ratios. Furthermore, Dhuime, et al.’s data show that there is a positive correlation between the increase in 87Rb/86Sr and silica and crustal thickness. The authors point out that the gradual increase of 87Rb/86Sr from 3 billion years to 1 billion years may indicate that the Earth’s continental crust was thickening. They estimate that the average thickness of new continental crust increases from ~20 km at 3 billion years ago to ~40 km at 1 billion years ago, and then decreases to ~30 km to the present.Since subduction is a result of plate activity, the transition at 3 billion years may also indicate the onset of plate tectonics. The thickness of new continental crust reached a maximum and then began decreasing. The authors point out that this may coincide with the time of the Rodinia supercontinent and mountain formation.Overall, this study provides compelling evidence that the continental crust formed 3 billion years ago, coinciding with the onset of plate tectonics. Additionally, silica content could be used as a metric for determining crust thickness over time. Journal information: Nature Geosciencecenter_img (Phys.org)—New research sheds light on how and when the modern day continents began to form. Researchers from the University of Bristol analyzed radio isotope abundances in 13,000 samples of continental crust of varying age and found that the continents began to form around 3 billion years ago. This date may coincide with when plate tectonics began. Their research appears in Nature Geoscience.
