Where is the Brasilia cobra?

Where is the Brasilia cobra

She has a celebrity life: she is successful on social media, has fans across the country, personalized diet, a dedicated caregiver and even promotes environmental awareness. But beware, she can be temperamental.

The Brasilia cobra, rescued after being abandoned in 2020, completes a year living at the Butantan Biological Museum, in São Paulo. The institution released a video showing some of the animal’s routine. See below:

On social media, the museum’s followers voted and named the snake after Nadja, through a poll promoted by the institute. Much loved by internet users, the museum always publishes content about the snake.

According to the director, Giuseppe Puorto, the snake is temperamental. “She arrived very angry,” she says in the released video. He says that the animal often destroys the place where it is on display.

On a day-to-day basis, the snake receives a lot of care. Biologist Marcelo Bellini is responsible for maintaining the enclosure where she lives. He washes and changes her water, sanitizes the windows and arranges the branches and plants.

Feeding is species specific. Nadja, who weighs 800 grams, receives one rodent a month. When it is growing and shedding its skin, snakes eat even less. Stress, greater during this period, seems to affect the celebrity’s appetite.

Warrior who led the revolution

The Brasilia cobra has become a symbol in the fight against the trafficking of wild animals in the country. She was found in a box near a mall in Lago Sul, Brasília.

Nadja was abandoned after biting Pedro Kambreck, a veterinary student. The boy was hospitalized for five days in an Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in the city.

On the internet, the irreverence of the case drew attention on social media, as there are indications that the student kept the snake in illegal possession. He is a defendant and is now answering in court for animal trafficking.

Nadja was initially in the custody of the Brasília Zoo. The species is exotic in the country and native to regions of Africa and Asia. Therefore, she was transferred to the Butantan Institute.

The Butantan Biological Museum is located on Rua Emílio Ribas, in the Butantã neighborhood, in São Paulo. Visitation is temporarily closed. The reopening date has not yet been announced.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users Ericsson report shows

According to a report by Ericsson cited by The Verge, by the end of this year, the number of 5G subscribers in the world will reach 1 billion.

Of course, this is far from the performance of 4G networks, which are now used by about 5 billion people, but still this is a fairly significant part of the market.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users. Ericsson report shows that operators often ask for more money for such tariffs.

Of course, 5G adoption is far from uneven. In North America, about 35% of subscribers will use 5G networks by the end of this year.

At the same time, the report indicates that operators often ask for more money for the higher speeds offered by new networks. Dividing into corresponding tariffs is popular among operators in Western Europe, but overall, 25% of operators worldwide charge extra for 5G. And the average markup is 40%.

Ericsson believes that, unfortunately, this trend will continue for several more years, as operators need to compensate for the costs of developing a new network.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests? The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests The company

The history of protests in China is overgrown with new interesting details related to IT companies.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests?  The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Just weeks before the protests began, Apple reportedly made a major change to how AirDrop works, and only in China. After updating to iOS 16.1.1, AirDrop in the mode of receiving messages from everyone became possible only for 10 minutes, after which AirDrop simply turns off. In normal mode, AirDrop has no time limit, as there is none now and all over the world outside of China.

The fact is that AirDrop is one of the ways protesters communicate, and not only in China. AirDrop works locally in smartphone-to-smartphone mode, without relying on external networks, so it cannot simply be blocked or read data. But in this case, for some reason, Apple decided to seriously change the function, although it did not turn it off completely.

The CNBC resource also notes that the corresponding update was released a month after Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected for a third term.

Recall that Huawei smartphones have been noticed that they automatically delete videos that depict events related to protests in China.
