The 2019 Emissions Modeling Platform is based on the 2017 National Emissions Inventory released in the spring of 2020, including updates to specific sectors to represent emissions from 2019. It was created as part of a product for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to produce derived estimates of air quality for 2019 using the Bayesian Space-time Downscaling Fusion Model (Downscaler). The modeling platform contains base year emissions inventories for 2017, spatial surrogates, and other ancillary files. The modeling platform is being developed during calendar year 2022. Data and documentation for the platform can be found at the links below.
The share of U.S. adults who say they use certain online platforms or apps is statistically unchanged from where it stood in early 2018 despite a long stretch of controversies over privacy, fake news and censorship on social media, according to a new Pew Research Center survey conducted Jan. 8 to Feb. 7, 2019.
More broadly, the steady growth in adoption that social platforms have experienced in the United States over the past decade also appears to be slowing. The shares of adults who say they use Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Twitter are each largely the same as in 2016, with only Instagram showing an uptick in use during this time period. (There are no comparable 2016 phone survey data for YouTube, Snapchat, WhatsApp or Reddit.)
As was true in previous surveys of social media use by the Center, there are substantial age-related differences in platform use. This is especially true of Instagram and Snapchat, which are used by 67% and 62% of 18- to 29-year-olds, respectively.
Particularly for these two platforms, there are also pronounced differences in use within the young adult population. Those ages 18 to 24 are substantially more likely than those ages 25 to 29 to say they use Snapchat (73% vs. 47%) and Instagram (75% vs. 57%).
Majorities of Snapchat and Instagram users also say they visit these sites daily, though they are slightly less likely than Facebook users to do so. The shares of young adults using these platforms daily are especially large. Roughly eight-in-ten Snapchat users ages 18 to 29 (77%) say they use the app every day, including 68% who say they do so multiple times day. Similarly, 76% of Instagram users in this age group visit the site on a daily basis, with 60% reporting that they do so several times per day. These patterns are largely similar to what the Center found in 2018.
Netflix's "The Platform," directed by Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia, is a high-concept, single-location thriller with gross-out elements, yet it also manages to be a thought-provoking inquiry into the nature of social hierarchies, consumerism, and altruism. With a Spanish-language script by David Desola and Pedro Rivero based on Desola's story, "The Platform" stars Iván Massagué as Goreng, a man who wakes on Level 48 of a towering, prison-like facility where a platform floats hundreds of floors, offering the two occupants on each one two minutes to gorge themselves on food before it moves down to the next level.
They're in El hoyo, which translates as "the Hole" or "the Pit," and like the doughnut hole in "Knives Out," there's a hole within this Hole, through which the platform descends. Level 0 is where the kitchen preparations occur, with chefs laying out a sumptuous banquet. However, the lower the platform goes, the less food there is leftover, and the more people are driven to cannibalistic savagery, feeding on their cellmates to sustain themselves for a month before the Administration moves them to a different random level. They never know whether it will be higher or lower than their current level.
"The Platform" originated as a theater script that the writers then retooled for the screen, so much of it relies on dialogue. If you're watching it with subtitles, it would be easy to miss something as the words fly by. The film's ending also relies on a three-act buildup of allegory, so if you're confused about why exactly "the panna cotta is the message" and things like that, grab a seat aboard our own moving platform as we descend from section to section here and try to make sense of this dystopian nightmare.
Trimagasi calls the Pit "a vertical self-management center" (as opposed to a horizontal one, like the train in "Snowpiercer"). He tells Goreng, "The food only belongs to us when the platform is on our level." Unfortunately, when they're demoted to Level 171, all bets are off and "it's better to eat than be eaten." Trimagasi ties Goreng to his bed and plans to purge him of bodily impurities like a snail (he even calls him "my little snail"), before feasting on strips of his flesh.
This again casts Goreng as a Christ figure. The movie hammers this home later by quoting several lines of scripture where Jesus tells his disciples to eat his flesh. Yet biblical comparisons only go so far in "The Platform." After Miharu (Alexandra Masangkay), a feral woman looking for her child, rides in on the platform and frees him, we soon see Goreng himself resort to barbarism, brutally stabbing and murdering Trimagasi before eating from his remains. His cellmate thereby becomes a part of his spiritual body, someone who remains with him in hallucinations, but it happens in a decidedly un-Christ-like manner.
Goreng and Baharat devise a plan to ride the platform down and "hand out food at every level, just enough to survive." As Goreng puts it, they will "go down, to go up." He reasons that the first 50 levels eat every day, so they should start handing out food only from Level 51 on downward. A wise elder, Sr. Brambang (Eric L. Goode), convinces them that as they are defending the food, they need to also try and win people over to their cause. "If you can't," he says, "then hit them hard. But dialogue must come first."
AWS and Azure take top spots. Amazon AWS IoT and Microsoft Azure IoT top the 2019 ranking as reported by users of those platforms. Out of the hundreds of IoT Platforms on the market today, IoT Analytics shortlisted 50 and asked decision makers in organizations that have these platforms in use (or have tested them) how they made their platform selection decisions and what they did and did not like about individual vendors (on various different selection criteria). The top 25 platforms (in terms of popularity among those surveyed) made it into the final ranking.

Users registered to the platform will be able to access information with respect to available quantities and qualities of saline wastewater, recovered materials and resources needed by end users, and the location and proximity of industrial sites. Thus, industries will be able to make informed decisions regarding the management of their own resources. The OBP reduces the transaction costs (e.g. search and information costs) by proposing possible matches to registered users.
The OBP is an innovative prototype platform in the domain of saline wastewater management aiming to promote resource efficiency and circular economy. The OBP is developed by National Technical University of Athens in the framework of the ZERO BRINE project. The OBP aims to play a key role in replicating the paradigms generated in the framework of the ZERO BRINE project.

Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors are the leading platform for gene delivery for the treatment of a variety of human diseases. Recent advances in developing clinically desirable AAV capsids, optimizing genome designs and harnessing revolutionary biotechnologies have contributed substantially to the growth of the gene therapy field. Preclinical and clinical successes in AAV-mediated gene replacement, gene silencing and gene editing have helped AAV gain popularity as the ideal therapeutic vector, with two AAV-based therapeutics gaining regulatory approval in Europe or the United States. Continued study of AAV biology and increased understanding of the associated therapeutic challenges and limitations will build the foundation for future clinical success. 041b061a72
