Juice jacking is a cyberattack technique warned against by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) where cybercriminals use malware-laden charging stations to steal sensitive information from devices such as smartphones and laptops. This scam typically takes place in public areas with free charging stations, like airports, railway stations, and crowded places. The RBI advises the public to avoid using public charging stations, carry personal power banks, avoid public Wi-Fi, keep their devices updated, and use malware detection apps to safeguard against these attacks. This alert aims to raise awareness among the public about the risks of juice jacking and to encourage preventative measures to protect personal and financial information​​​​.

The “10,000 Genomes Project” refers to several ambitious initiatives aimed at sequencing the genomes of a wide range of species across the animal kingdom, including vertebrates, plants, and protists, to better understand biological diversity and evolution. These projects, such as the Genome 10K for vertebrates, the 10,000 Plant Genomes (10KP), and the Bird 10,000 Genomes (B10K), aim to generate comprehensive genetic data that will enhance our knowledge of life on Earth, contribute to conservation efforts, and address fundamental questions in biology and ecology. By sequencing at least one individual from each vertebrate genus, every major clade of plants, eukaryotic microbes, and all extant bird species, these projects collectively represent a significant step toward the ultimate goal of sequencing all life on Earth. Challenges such as funding, sampling, sequencing, assembly, and data analysis are being addressed through international collaboration and advancements in sequencing technologies​​​​​​.

Astronomers have recently unveiled the discovery of three new moons orbiting the ice giants Uranus and Neptune. This significant finding, announced on February 23, 2024, includes one moon around Uranus and two around Neptune. The discovery was made using a series of detailed observations and advanced image processing techniques. The newly discovered Uranian moon, provisionally named S/2023 U1, is about 8 kilometers across and completes an orbit every 680 days. Neptune’s moons, designated S/2002 N5 and S/2021 N1, measure approximately 23 and 14 kilometers in diameter, respectively, with orbits lasting about 9 and 27 years. This discovery was made possible through the collaborative efforts of astronomers using some of the world’s most powerful telescopes, including the Magellan telescopes at Carnegie Science’s Las Campanas Observatory, the Subaru telescope, the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, and the Gemini Observatory’s telescope. These celestial additions to Uranus and Neptune’s moon families enhance our understanding of the outer solar system’s dynamics and the complex processes that govern moon formation​​​​​​​​​​.

Quasars are extremely luminous objects found in the centers of some galaxies, powered by gas spiraling at high velocity into enormous black holes. They can outshine all the stars in their host galaxies, making them visible even from billions of light-years away. Quasars are not only significant for their brightness but also for what they can teach us about the early universe and the formation of galaxies. They were first discovered in the 1960s as quasi-stellar objects due to their star-like appearance and radio emissions. Since then, our understanding of quasars has evolved significantly, thanks to the advancements in astronomical observations and technologies such as the Hubble Space Telescope​​​​​​.
