Early Bird: First-graders about to return to schools. Miley Cyrus is back. The first 6G satellite in space
First and second grade children should return to school as soon as possible, studying online doesn’t really work for them. The US election is over and the single "Party in the USA" skyrocketed to the top of the music charts. Last but not least, China has launched he world's first 6G satellite into space to test the technology.
First-graders back to school?
Navíc jsou velmi malí na to, aby ovládaly techniku stoprocentně.
Pupils in the first or possibly the second grade of primary schools could return to the classes on 18 November, if the epidemiological situation is favorable. According to the head of the association of primary school principals, this is a clear priority.
"I would like it if the 1st and 2nd grade pupils could return at the same time as soon as possible. But the first-graders are an even higher priority, a large part of those children can’t read and write yet,"
said the head of the association of primary school principals Michal Černý. He noted, however, that schools need to know that children will be allowed to return to the classes at least a week in advance. He believes that the main problem with distance learning for children is isolation. In addition, they are way too small to master the technology one hundred percent.
And we mustn’t forget that distance learning isn’t taxing only for the pupils, but also for the teachers. Although digital skills have improved since the spring, many teachers failed to limit the content of the curriculum in online teaching, as recommended by the Ministry of Education.
The song "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus is back
Miley Cyrus' 2009 hit "Party in the USA" is now Joe Biden's election win. The song even returned to the music charts and made it into the Top 200 on iTunes in the United States.
"This is a party in the US,"
Miley Cyrus commented on a video celebrating Biden on Twitter. Further videos retweeted by the pop star show fans taking the song to the streets. And it’s not just these celebrations that demonstrates how many people are listening to the single in honor of the election results. New comments began to appear under the video, many of them containing references to Biden's win.
China sends 'world's first 6G' test satellite into orbit
China has launched 13 satellites into orbit, including the world's first sixth-generation test communications satellite. The device was carried into space by a Long March-6 rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. There were also ten Argentinian satellites on board, making it the first time China's new generation of launch rockets has carried foreign satellites into space.
The 6G satellite will serve to verify the performance of 6G technology in space, as the frequency bandwith would be extended from 5G millimeter waves to high-frequency terahertz waves. The satellite is the first technical test of the application of terahertz communication in space. It is expected to be a hundred times faster than 5G.
The gates of Disneyland are slowly opening
Disneyland Resort in California has been closed since mid-March 2020. From November 19, things will change: one of the two theme parks will be partially open to the public. Amusement parks shouldn’t expect any of the main attractions to be open, though. They’ll need to wait a bit longer for that. The park will be open only for shopping and dining.
In October, Disney Parks announced that they were expanding their shopping area into the main street. The new Boulevard will feature a number of shops and restaurants reflecting the Los Angeles neighborhood where Walt Disney lived when he first came to Southern California.
Celebrations broke out in America
After Joe Biden was announced as the President-elect, Democrat supporters took to the streets of a number of American cities and began to celebrate spontaneously. Celebrations of Biden’s victory broke out even near the White House. Biden’s unsuccessful rival Donald Trump was at his golf club in Sterling, Virginia at the time.
As soon as the news of Biden’s success was out, the Americans gathered in front of their homes and threw a huge party. They were blasting horns, banging on pots and some even did a victory dance! Washington, DC residents, the overwhelming majority of whom had voted for Biden, also welcomed the winning candidate with car horns.
"I was on a bus, but I immediately jumped up and went straight to the White House. We have a reason celebrate! We’ve been waiting a long time,"
said a citizen of the capital Donna Thomas.
