Simi Valley Fire burned 1,300 acres hill area, near the Simi valley, On Wednesday morning, according to the Ventura County Fire Department. It threatened 6,500 homes and forced school closures.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library saved by a herd of ravenous goats, after a fresh wildfire erupted in the city of Simi Valley in Southern California, forcing officials to order evacuations of nearby homes.

The firefighters and aircraft crews stated that “A hungry herd of as many as 500 goats had helped create a firebreak in the brush that surrounds the hilltop complex. The goats ate up vegetation that would have fueled the fire.”
“One of the firefighters mentioned that they do believe the goats’ fire line helped them fight this fire,” library spokeswoman Melissa Giller said. “They just proved today how useful they are.”
Simi Valley Fire Named “Easy Fire”.The Easy fire started near Easy Street and Madera Road shortly after 6 a.m., quickly burned toward Tierra Rejada Road, leaped across the street and made a run toward the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, said Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen.

“Unfortunately, it was about the worst time it could happen — 40-mile-an-hour sustained winds and fuels that were ripe and ready to carry fire,” he further added.

Southern California Edison confirmed Wednesday evening that the fire broke out in its service territory near one of its sub-transmission lines, which was not de-energized at the time of the eruption. The exact cause of the fire remains still unknown.

“The utility has notified the California Public Utilities Commission that there was activity on the sub-transmission line near the reported time of the fire”, spokesman Robert Villegas said.

Southern California Edison “is conducting a review into the circumstances surrounding the fire and will cooperate with all investigations into the origin and cause,” Villegas said. He said the utility’s top priority is the safety of its customers, employees, and communities.

Thick smoke of fire choked the hillside where the 125,000-square-foot library is perched amid dense brush. Flames burned on all sides, but the library has not sustained damage, officials said.

 Now, Zomato will not absorb Uber Eat employees, which means they will either be absorbed in Uber’s other verticals or could face lay-off. There’s less clarity on their future roles right now. The entire deal is worth around $350 million.

The greatest technological innovations that will go mainstream in the new 2020 decade

5 Greatest Technological Innovations in 2020

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence or AI is talked about a lot these days. It’s in your camera, It’s in your phone, It’s in the video games, it’s being used to predict the possibility if your train ticket confirming and even our ministers are talking about it. But many people are still confused if it’s an actual technological innovation or just a marketing gimmick to stand apart or something that’s going to take away your job.

Whatever it may be, AI is here to stay. And it’s going to creep into many more facets of your life in this new decade. Experts predict that some new applications of AI will include assisting doctors in prescribing the exact dosage of medicines for every patient and, assisting lawyers

by keeping a database of every case ever fought, in mass surveillance programs of the government, it’s going to predict the stock market and the most unexpected of all, AI is going creative. AI is expected to produce art in the form of painting, scriptwriting for movies and much more.

By the way, do you know about the Chinese newsreader who does not exist? That’s an AI.

IoT

Simply Internet of Things is a term used to describe the connection of various devices with the Internet with the aim of reducing human effort. IoT platform allows all the connected devices to collect their data where the platform processes the data to study human behavior and adapt the device specifically for that user. One way that we already make use of IoT is in wearable devices. We check heart rate, calories burnt and steps to track our fitness goals. But few of the applications that have not gained traction yet but are expected to do soon include smart cities that can manage traffic and energy use, using wearable devices to call for emergency services, and in agriculture where farmers can use IoT to synchronize their equipment, to connect all the devices at our homes like air conditioners, lights, TV, etc. You can remotely control your devices through your smartphone. You can cool down your room before you reach home from work, you can microwave food so it’s ready by the time you reach, you can put on music and much more. Its uses will only be limited by our imagination.

Mixed Reality

Imagine there’s a cricket match between your favorite teams and you know it’s going to be huge, but you could not get a hold of the tickets, or maybe it’s in another far off city or country where it’s not possible for you to go. you’d be pretty disappointed right? But imagine if we tell you you can feel all the excitement and thrill of the match without even leaving your drawing-room. Mixed Reality will do that for you. With the help of a VR headset, you can be virtually present right in the stadium, in whichever seat you want to be, feel the energy of the crowd and that too with your favorite people.

But if you are not into sports, you can also visit your favorite tourist destinations, visit cities, temples, museums. You can take a view of the sun rising from your favorite mountain peak whenever you like, or wander around the streets of Rome in real-time without spending so much on travel.

you can be present with your family on important occasions while being on a business trip far away from home. Wouldn’t that be amazing? But that’s not all, while you are walking on the streets of your favorite city, your headset will also guide you with voice and

visual signals, just like a tour guide.

Driverless cars

So you’ve seen Uber experimenting and Tesla boss talking about it, but how far are we really, from sitting inside a driverless car? We’d say pretty close. Cars are already assisting drivers in parking and cruising on highways. They are also sensing danger from oncoming obstructions on the road and taking necessary steps to prevent it. But needing no driver is a whole another thing, there are laws and then there are accountability issues in case of mishaps. But manufacturers are very hopeful. These cars can communicate with other vehicles, support devices, traffic lights, and physical obstructions. They can divert vehicles in case of heavy traffic and take the shortest route. You can have a meeting

while your car takes you to your office or watch a movie and relax on the way home. You’d finally be able to text and drive and the police won’t stop you.

Genetic engineering

We have been eating genetically modified food for years already, for their resistance against some diseases and good yield, but soon we’ll be able to do the same to our off-springs. That’s right. We can make our children immune to that one disorder that runs in the family and give them longer and healthier lives. Through gene editing, you can alter a few genes to make your kid become resistant to diabetes or heart disease, but on the lighter side, you can also make them taller, have thicker hair, clear skin and much more. Many have doubts over it on ethical grounds and there a few countries that are willing to go ahead with it in the face of recent research. Scientists argue that we’d be able to cure many diseases that have no treatment today and to address ethical concerns, it can always be regulated by the government.

So these were a few of the technological trends that we are expecting to be talked about much more in this new decade. All technology aims to reduce redundant efforts that do not benefit us at all. Everybody would be happy if we can avoid driving through that evening traffic rush that ruins our mood every day. Physical barriers to enjoyment would become obsolete. You can be virtually present anywhere you want anytime you want. You can save your family’s health and future and live a better life by reclaiming your most important asset, time.
