An international team of astronomers has discovered the furthest object ever detected in the Solar System. Nicknamed “Farout”, it’s a small round object with a pinkish hue located 17.95 billion kilometers (11.15 billion miles) from the Sun. The color is common in ice-rich objects.

Its official designation is 2018 VG18 and it is 500 kilometers (310 miles) in diameter. It's the first object discovered further than 100 astronomical units (AU) from our star, with 1 AU being the Earth-Sun distance. Farout is at a distance of 120 AU, significantly further out than dwarf planet Eris, which is at 96 AU. Pluto, by comparison, is at 34 AU.

The object was discovered in images taken with the Japanese Subaru Telescope atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii on November 10. Follow-up observations to confirm the distance were conducted in December from Las Campanas Observatory in Chile.

“All that we currently know about 2018 VG18 is its extreme distance from the Sun, its approximate diameter, and its color,” co-discoverer David Tholen, from the University of Hawaii, said in a statement. “Because 2018 VG18 is so distant, it orbits very slowly, likely taking more than 1,000 years to take one trip around the Sun.”

Farout adds to the intriguing family of peculiar objects so far discovered beyond the orbit of Pluto. The orbits of these trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) seem to be influenced by the gravity of a massive planet so researchers have put forward the idea that Planet 9 exists over 200 AU from the Sun. So far the search hasn’t uncovered definitive proof, but TNOs are helping astronomers understand what’s going on at the edge of the Solar System.

“2018 VG18 is much more distant and slower moving than any other observed Solar System object, so it will take a few years to fully determine its orbit,” added co-discoverer Scott Sheppard, from the Carnegie Institution for Science. “But it was found in a similar location on the sky to the other known extreme Solar System objects, suggesting it might have the same type of orbit that most of them do. The orbital similarities shown by many of the known small, distant Solar System bodies was the catalyst for our original assertion that there is a distant, massive planet at several hundred AU shepherding these smaller objects.”

While we are only just starting to understand the further rims of the Solar System, discoveries like this show that there are still many worlds out there left to find.

The U.S. Senate's top Republican and Democratic leaders began negotiating Tuesday (Dec 18) after the White House indicated President Donald #Trump does not want a federal #governmentshutdown over his demand for $5bn US for the border wall with Mexico. Without a resolution, more than 800,000 government workers could be furloughed or sent to work without pay, disrupting government operations days before the Christmas holiday. Democratic leader #NancyPelosi called it a 'good sign' that the #WhiteHouse appeared to be backing off its demands.

The White House showed a willingness to budge earlier Tuesday as it became apparent the president does not have support in #Congress for funding the wall at the $5bn level he wants. While Trump said last week he would be 'proud' to have a shutdown over the wall funding, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday said are 'other ways' to secure the $5bn that he wants.

Hanami is a long-standing Japanese tradition of welcoming spring. Also known as the “cherry blossom festival,” this annual celebration is about appreciating the temporal beauty of nature. People gather under blooming cherry blossoms for food, drink, songs, companionship and the beauty of sakura (cherry blossoms).
The cherry blossom usually begins to bloom in Okinawa in around January/February, passes through the middle of Japan in March and April, and finishes with a late bloom in northern Hokkaido in May.

On any UNIX or Linux based file system like Android, all files and folders have a set of permissions associated with them. These permissions which are also called ‘attributes’ determine the level of accessibility/permission given to a user or a group of users.

Being based on Linux, Android is no exception. Learn what permissions (Read-Write-Execute) mean and how we can set or fix file permissions on Android.

#China has agreed to buy some #soybeans from our farmers, that have already had a $12bn bailout. The only problem is the size of the buy is a disappointment, at least initially. China is only buying 1.5 million tons-which will barely move stock when China is the market for 60% of U.S. soybean exports and Chinese buying is down 90% YoY. To give you some perspective on scale, China buys between 30-35 million tons a year from the U.S. The problem comes not with what the Chinese are doing short term, it is what they are doing in #Brazil despite President #Trump’s staunch defending of U.S. farmers.

#America’s biggest competitor for U.S. soybean production is Brazil, which has upped its soybean production 340% from 1977 to 2017 in the three Midwest regions of Mato Grasso, Matto Grasso do Sul and Goias. The 2017-2018 crop in Brazil is believed to be bigger than the U.S. by a small margin of 117 million tons to 116.5 million tons. China has helped Brazil spend billions of dollars to build out the Northern Ports and to get these soybeans to market in a much more cost efficient manner. The key point is China is planning to have a future where they won’t be buying soybeans from the U.S. unless they want to or they will no longer need to.

Android security audit: An easy-to-follow annual checklist

Android security doesn't have to be a source of stress. These level-headed steps are all you need to keep the boogeyman at bay

Android security is always a hot topic on these here Nets of Inter — and almost always for the wrong reason.

As we've discussed ad nauseam over the years, most of the missives you read about this-or-that super-scary malware/virus/brain-eating-boogie-monster are overly sensationalized accounts tied to theoretical threats with practically zero chance of actually affecting you in the real world. If you look closely, in fact, you'll start to notice that the vast majority of those stories stem from companies that — gasp! — make their money selling malware protection programs for Android phones. (Pure coincidence, right?)

The reality is that Google has some pretty advanced methods of protection in place for Android, and as long as you take advantage of those and use a little common sense, you'll almost certainly be fine (yes, even when the Play Store guards slip up and let the occasional bad app into the gates). The biggest threat you should be thinking about is your own security surrounding your devices and accounts — and all it takes is 20 minutes a year to make sure your setup is sound.
