‘Toy Story 4’ and all the new trailers you need to watch from this week

%name ‘Toy Story 4’ and all the new trailers you need to watch from this week by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

This was about as busy a week for trailers as we’ve seen so far in 2019. Toy Story 4, John Wick: Chapter 3, the latest film from Quentin Tarantino — and that’s just scratching the surface. Sometimes it feels like we’re always just waiting for another Marvel or Star Wars trailer to drop, but weeks like this make the wait easier.

As for the movies actually coming to theaters this week, Us — the latest horror flick from Jordan Peele — will likely be at the top of the list for most everyone. But if you’re not into being frightened, you might think about checking out an early access screening of DC’s Shazam instead. Check out this post to learn more.

Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for a limited time to boost sales

%name Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for a limited time to boost sales by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Tesla is far from a company in disarray, but there’s no denying that Tesla management has waffled on a number of issues with alarming frequency as of late. Just a few weeks ago, for example, Tesla announced that it would be closing the majority of its physical stores, only to backtrack a short while later. Further, some of the pricing schemes and available vehicle configurations offered by Tesla seemingly tend to change with no rhyme or reason.

Keeping this trend going, a new report from Electrek relays that Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for new purchases as part of a broader effort to boost sales. If you recall, Tesla this past-September ended its free Supercharger program for all new purchases.

Scientists find abundance of 500,000-year-old fossils in China

%name Scientists find abundance of 500,000 year old fossils in China by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The thing about fossils is the older they are, the rarer they are. Earth doesn’t keep anything around forever, and the farther you go back in time the less likely you are to find evidence of the plants and animals that were alive then. So, when we’re talking about fossils of creatures that died over 500 million years ago, you can imagine how hard they are to find, but paleontologists in China just hit the mother lode.

A new researcher paper published in Science details the discovery of literally tens of thousands of primitive specimens in ancient hardened sediment along a river in China. The site, called Qingjiang, is packed with evidence of soft-bodied creatures that, until now, were lost to time.

Here’s the thing — Sophie Turner, the Game of Thrones actress who plays Sansa Stark, wants you to know she hasn’t been carelessly telling people close to her how the hit HBO franchise is going to end. If she was, that would obviously put some pretty valuable and closely held secrets out into the wild and at risk of being spoiled before the premiere of the eighth and final season of the series, which arrives in less than a month.

Nobody knows if NASA’s OSIRIS-REx can pull off its daring asteroid-sampling maneuver

%name Nobody knows if NASA’s OSIRIS REx can pull off its daring asteroid sampling maneuver by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft first arrived at the large space rock known as Bennu late last year, and it’s spent the first few months of 2019 observing its new space companion and teaching NASA more about the rock’s surface. Unfortunately for NASA engineers, the asteroid’s surface is nothing like what they assumed it would be, and that poses a serious challenge going forward.

The OSIRIS-REx mission includes multiple objectives, with the first being the successful insertion of the spacecraft into orbit around the rock itself. NASA nailed it and things seemed to be great, or at least until scientists got a good look at Bennu’s surface. As Sky & Telescope reports, it has complicated matters greatly.

Tesla’s Autopilot plans haven’t exactly progressed as rapidly as Elon Musk initially claimed. If you recall, Musk a few years ago said that a Model S in 2017 would be able to drive itself from New York to Los Angeles with no driver interaction at all. While that obviously never came to pass, that hasn’t stopped Musk from making intriguing and surprisingly ambitious claims about the company’s Autopilot software.

As a more recent example, Musk just last month said that Tesla vehicles by the end of 2020 will boast full Autonomous capabilities.
