Where is the Brasilia cobra?

Published

on

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.

Motorola could become the first manufacturer to use the new series of Snapdragon SoCs

Published

on

Motorola is resolutely determined to conquer the premium smartphone market. According to the latest news, it is very likely that the brand will be the first phone manufacturer to benefit from the new generation of Snapdragon processors from Qualcomm.

In recent years, Motorola seemed to have put aside the production of high-end smartphones. Nothing predicted his current breakthrough. The epic began in December 2021, with the release of the Motorola Edge X30 equipped with the latest and greatest chip from Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Recent revelations today confirm the brand’s ambition to revolutionize the world of smartphones. The next Motorola could feature the next generation of Qualcomm processors.

The Motorola Frontier, the first smartphone with the Snapdragon 8 chip?

Information has been published by a well-known leaker, Digital Chat Station, and quickly became the buzz on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. According to the tipster, the Motorola Frontier could be the first device to inherit Qualcomm’s latest mobile processor innovation: the SM8475. In addition to this new Snapdragon 8 series processor, another tantalizing feature integrates the smartphone’s spec sheet. At least, according to rumors. This is a 200-megapixel main camera to delight mobile photography aficionados. Added to this would be an ultra-wide sensor of 50 megapixels and a telephoto lens of 12 megapixels. For selfies, the Motorola Frontier will offer a 60-megapixel front camera.

A little topo on the new Snapdragon 8 chipset

The preparation of the SoC SM8475 is not without hazards. Initially, Qualcomm worked with Samsung to support it in manufacturing chips for the first generation of Snapdragon 8 processors. Yields proved insufficient, leading the company to move on to another collaborator. This is where TSMC came into the picture. The brand will thus put its famous 4nm process at the service of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The performance of the SM8475 SoC will be slightly higher than that of its predecessor.

According to Digital Chat Station, it will take a few more months for Qualcomm to begin mass production of the SM8475 chip. Rollout is estimated in Q3 2022. At this point, it’s unclear which other phone makers besides Motorola will get the new processor first. For now, the Motorola Frontier is at the heart of expectations. Its release is scheduled for the second half of 2022. So you have plenty of time to save money if you plan to acquire this premium smartphone.

The CNMC punishes mercilessly: 500,000 euros to an OMV for serious infringement

Published

on

The CNMC is responsible for analyzing that all operators comply with current legislation and do not exceed the limits for their customers. However, despite the operators being very careful, there are times when they break the law. Y Lycamobile It has done so by not giving up some data required by the CNMC.

This has been announced today by the National Commission of Markets and Competition, which has penalized Lycamobile, property of MoreMobile Group from June 2020, with 552,000 euros. The reason for the sanction was failure to comply with its obligations to supply data of your subscribers through the SGDA, the subscriber data management system managed by the CNMC.

SGDA: very important to save lives

The SGDA It is a platform used by emergency services, operators to compile telephone directories, and those who provide services of telephone consultation about subscriber numbers. In it, all customer data is updated to the latest to be able to more easily identify customers if necessary.

Thanks to this number, emergency services and authorized agents can quickly identify who is calling in case of need. The emergency telephone numbers that have access to the SGDA are:

  • 112 Emergencies
  • 061 Health emergencies
  • 062 Civil Guard
  • 080 Local Fire Services
  • 085 Provincial Fire Services
  • 088 Autonomous Police
  • 091 National Police
  • 092 local police

appear in the SGDA it’s optional. By default, we are all part of it, but in the event that we do not want our data is accessible, the client must notify the operator, unlike what happens with the Robinson List. After communication, the operator will have 10 days to upload the updated data. After that, the customer data will not be able to be consulted by providers of telephone directory services or consultation services such as 118XX numbers, but they will continue to be accessible to emergency services and state security forces and bodies.

As analyzed by the CNMC, the operator only registered information on a quarter of its subscribers between December 2020 and April 2021.

Therefore, the CNMC has determined that the operator has committed a serious administrative offense for non-compliance with the obligations established in Circular 1/2013, on the procedure for supplying and receiving subscriber data.

This infraction entails, therefore, a sanction that amounts to €552,000. The payment made by the operator has been reduced because they have recognized their responsibility in committing the offence, and they have also paid the penalty in advance. In the case of not having applied the two 20% reductions, the operator would have had to pay 920,000 euros. The payment, moreover, has already been made, thus renouncing the right to dismiss or waiver by administrative means against the sanction.
