A study on chimpanzees, the closest species to humans genetically, found cardiovascular health similarities between chimpanzees and humans.
When chimpanzees have a plant-based diet and substantial opportunities to exercise, they fall into "healthy" human ranges.
Lab chimpanzees, whose diet and exercise were limited, showed conditions indicative of cardiovascular disease risk, more like sedentary people, reports Xinhua.
The findings have been published in a special issue of Philosophical Transactions B on "The evolution of the primate aging process".
Researchers from the University of Michigan (UM) and University of New Mexico partnered with wildlife veterinarians in Uganda and Congo to examine cardiovascular profiles in chimpanzees living in African sanctuaries, according to the findings posted on UM's website on Monday.
These chimpanzees occupy large rainforest enclosures, consume a diet of fruits and vegetables, and generally experience conditions more similar to a wild chimpanzee lifestyle.
They measured blood lipids, body weight and body fat in 75 sanctuary chimpanzees during annual veterinary health check-ups, and then compared them to published data from laboratory-living chimpanzees.
Free-ranging chimpanzees in sanctuaries exhibited lower body weight and lower levels of lipids, both risk factors for human cardiovascular disease. Some of these disparities increased with age, indicating that the free-ranging chimpanzees stayed healthy as they got older.
"Our findings support the hypothesis that lifestyle shapes health in chimpanzees, similar to effects in humans, and contribute to an emerging understanding of cardiovascular health in evolutionary context," said Alexandra Rosati, UM assistant professor of psychology and anthropology.
The work also showed that chimpanzees living a naturalistic life have much lower levels of blood lipids even as they age, providing a new reference for understanding human health.
"These results show how the high-quality, natural conditions that chimpanzees experience in African sanctuaries fosters their long-term health," Rosati said.
Huawei along with HKT Hong Kong and Globe Philippines recently held an online commercial release conference to launch the AirPON solution.
This solution reuses existing wireless sites to build full-fiber access networks for mobile operators quickly and at a low cost, said a press release.
As mobile operators transform from mobile to full-service operations, they face huge challenges in FTTH network construction.
Traditionally, operators had to deploy centralized OLTs in central office equipment rooms and layout massive optical cables to reach users. This required large-scale initial investment and the resolution of complex problems such as ROW acquisition. As a result, network construction has always been time-consuming, expensive, while services have been slow to provision.
Huawei AirPON solution specifically addresses these challenges. “The AirPON solution shortens the optical cables between OLTs and users from over 3 km to below 300 m, greatly improves the efficiency of optical cable deployment, and reduces the ROI period to less than 3 years. With it, operators can reap benefits faster when building full-fiber access networks,” said Gary Lu, President of Huawei Network Marketing and Solution Sales Department.
“HKT would like to replicate the solution to village area or low-rise building in the urban area to extend our Ultra-Broadband coverage. AirPON allows the installation of PON equipment on the rooftop, which can be suitable for PON deployment in low rise old buildings in HK,” said Peter Lam, Managing Director of HKT Engineering Dept Hong Kong.
“Huawei’s AirPON solution helps us to efficiently roll out FTTH networks with simple ROW permitting and site acquisition and enables us to quickly provision fiber broadband services,” added Joel Agustin, Vice President of Globe Philippines.
China on Monday sent a new ocean-monitoring satellite into orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China.
A Long March-4B rocket carrying the Haiyang-2C (HY-2C) satellite took off at 1:40 p.m. (Beijing Time), according to the launch center, reports Xinhua.
The country's third ocean dynamic environment satellite, the HY-2C, will form a network with the previous HY-2B and subsequent HY-2D to carry out high-precision maritime environment monitoring.
Monday's launch was the 347th by the Long March rocket series.
In recent years, Chinese company Realme has become one of the most popular Smartphone manufacturing brands in Bangladesh. The young generation is admiring Realme phones for trendy designs and top-notch features under affordable price ranges. On 14 September 2020, Realme launched their new Smartphone Realme 7 Pro. If you are looking for an all-rounder Smartphone under 30000, don’t miss 7 Pro. Read this article to know the features, specs, and Price of Realme 7 Pro in Bangladesh.
Realme 7 Pro features a smart outlook with a manageable weight of 182g. You can comfortably handle this gadget by one hand. This phone is built with a plastic frame with a glass front and plastic back panel. The sheen of its plastic-built rear panel looks gorgeous, but it misses the premium feel of a glass-panel. It is a downgrade from the predecessor 6 Pro which has a glass built back panel. The rear camera bump is moderate. The front screen owns a punch-hole camera.
In this phone, you get a home button on the right side, while on the left edge it has a volume rocker and triple tray SIM card slot – for dual SIM and a dedicated memory card. The upper edge is clean with a secondary noise cancellation microphone. On the bottom edge, it has a USB type C port, 3.5mm audio jack, primary microphone, and the bottom-firing loudspeaker grill.
Realme 7 Pro has a 6.5-inch display which is great for watching media and doing regular tasks. The most fascinating feature of 7 Pro is its Super AMOLED panel featuring full HD plus resolution (1080 by 2400 pixels with 411 PPI densities). The display is protected by Corning Gorila Glass 3 Plus. It is good, but Gorila Glass 5 would have been better.
Unlike other Realme phones, the 7 Pro is provided with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Realme claims that 7 Pro has about 600 nit brightness. This feature makes 7 Pro highly compatible for outdoor use under direct sunlight. However, the lack of a higher refresh rate may disappoint some people. But Super AMOLED panel won’t let you feel this limitation at all.
Like the contemporary phones, Realme 7 Pro bears a quad rear camera series with a front camera. The primary rear sensor features 64 MP, f/1.8 lens. Realme deserves praise for providing Sony IMX682 sensor instead of Samsung. Besides this, 7 Pro has an 8MP f/2.3 ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP f/2.4 depth shooter, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro camera. On the front side, 7 Pro is blessed with a 32MP f/2.5 punch-hole selfie camera.
Compared to the ancestor Realme 6 Pro, the 12MP telephoto shooter (rear), and 8MP ultra-wide-angle (front) camera have been excluded in the latest 7 Pro version. But don’t worry! The 7 Pro has to offer something more exciting than 6 pro.
By virtue of Sony Sensor, 7 pro’s 64MP prime camera captures nice photos in broad daylight. With balanced HDR, photos come with enough detailing, and sharpness. The color vibrancy seems close to natural. The 8MP 119-degree ultra-wide-angle shooter takes decent photos with proper sharpness and detailing under ample sunlight. However, some level of color distortion might be visible.
While taking close-up shots, its 2MP macro shooter can blur the background with a natural-looking and smooth tone. The 2MP depth sensor presents proper edge detection with a decent background blur. But a more detailing of the main subject would have been better.
While most of the competitor phones struggle for capturing good shots in absence of enough light, Realme 7 Pro is capable of taking pleasant shots with detailing during low light conditions. However, images captured in low light won’t be totally free from grains. Activating the bonus night mode features, you can further improve the quality of low-light images. Moreover, this phone offers some exciting filters that allow you to add a specific color tone to the photos. We have seen such advanced features in the flagship-level phones asking much higher prices.
7 Pro’s 32MP front camera is proficient in capturing detailed images in presence of daylight as well as good artificial light. However, the Color level of photos is a bit saturated in comparison with its rear prime sensor. Interestingly, this shooter can take ultra-wide photos that would be a windfall for taking group-selfies. Portrait mode is equally efficient. The HDR capacity of this selfie sensor can skillfully handle brightness exposure and smoothening backgrounds while preserving the detailing of the subject. However, in dark environments, the images may lose some details.
You can shoot 4K footage at 30fps or 1080p footage at 30/60/120fps with a gyro EIS facility. The video quality is satisfactory. The Ultra Night mode for video offers fine exposure while shooting video in the low-light conditions. Like the DSLR camera, the 7 Pro allows you to blur out the background in videos! You can also use the front sensor to capture 1080p videos at 30/120fps.
Realme 7 Pro is equipped with an octa-core processor combined with the Adreno 618 GPU. Its CPU bears Qualcomm Snapdragon SM7125 720G chipset featuring 2.3GHz clock speed at maximum. We have seen the same configuration in the ancestor 6 Pro. Though an upgraded chip was expected in the latest 7 Pro model, SD 720G can offer acceptable performance under this budget with good power efficiency and less heating.
7Pro is available in two LPDDR4X RAM variants (6GB and 8GB) with 128GB of internal storage capacity and UFS 2.1 data transfer technology. 7 Pro runs on Realme UI on top of Android 10. The Realme UI interface is fairly customizable that offers reliable performance in regular usage.
For gaming, 7 Pro can be a clever pick! You can play Asphalt 9 Legends at super smooth speed. For PUBG, you can choose HD graphics at a High frame rate or Balance mode at Ultra rate. After long hours of gaming, you may experience some frame drops and heating issues that are quite natural. Additionally, its amazing Super AMOLED display with dual stereo speakers would make your audio-visual experience more enjoyable.
Though Realme 7 Pro’s 4,500mAh battery may seem a bit shorter, it lasts for around one day with 7.5 hours of SOT after a full charge session. What makes 7 Pro out-win its low-powered battery is the provided 65W fast charging adapter. It took about 34 minutes to fully recharge this phone. This fast rechargeable light-weight phone can be very handy for people who stay outside the home for long hours of the day.
Real 7 Pro’s basic variant 6GB/128GB is unofficially available at BDT 27000 in Bangladesh. The price may change depending upon circumstances.
Overall Realme 7 Pro comes with a pleasant combination with a magnificent display, smart processor, adequate memory, and attractive camera feature. However, this Smartphone has a few limitations like the plastic build frame, plastic back panel, and lower version of Corning Gorila glass protection. Considering the price range, it can be said that Realme 7 Pro offers a fair deal.
