A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said: "There are three local Covid alert levels which are enshrined in law and we are not considering the introduction of a 'plus' system?

Ancient reserves of the greenhouse gas methane trapped in ice for millions of years in the Arctic Ocean are being released into the atmosphere, researchers claim.

The deposits of methane and other gases, dubbed hydrates, have previously been dubbed the 'sleeping giants of the carbon cycle'. .

An international research team on a Russian ship spotted bubbles of the potent gas, which has a warming effect 80 times greater than carbon dioxide over 20 years, at the surface.

The University of New South Wales, in Sydney, said it was important to wash masks after each wearing after finding virus on the inside and outside of both surgical and cloth masks?

Studies have demonstrated that surgical masks can contain and therefore reduce the dissemination of droplets and aerosols produced by a sick wearer by up to three to four-fold, and home-made cloth masks up to  two to four-fold.

Surgical masks can also protect the wearer to some degree by reducing the exposure to incoming droplets and aerosols by up to six-fold

However, AMD is claiming that the Radeon RX 6800 XT performs about on par with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, even outperforming it in some cases, so it's possible that Team Red has just found a way to better keep the cores busy – but this is something we'll have to test for ourselves once we get our hands on the graphics cards. 

One sticking point that some may point to with the Radeon RX 6800 XT specs, however, is that the graphics card comes equipped with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, rather than the GDDR6X memory found in the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090

This is a concern, but it's one that AMD hopes to solve with similar Infinity Cache technology to its Ryzen processors, which should radically cut down on memory latency.

Google hasn't acknowledged that there is an issue with the OS itself in a statement made to Chrome Unboxed, however, and blames the apparent delay in the roll out on a bug in the update channel reporting itself, which made it appear like there were inconsistencies with the update schedule.

Google says that the update will be fully rolled out shortly and that the apparent delay has nothing to do with a problem with the OS itself, so we'll have to see if the reported issues – as yet unverified – become a reality for more users

Microsoft is leaning into jokes about the Series X's fridge-like design with this giveaway, but what I enjoy about the marketing gag is that the Xbox Series X doesn't even look good as a fridge.

It looks like a terrible fridge, and one I'd only want to own it if I had no other refrigerator options.

If that's the case for the person who wins it, I'm happy for them, but sad for them, too, because now they have to look at this Xbox fridge?

"We are people, just like you" says Cyberpunk 2077 dev in response to death threats
1 min, 40 secs

Summarize

It's now due to release on 10th December, with CD Projekt Red explaining the delay is required to ensure Cyberpunk runs well on all platforms, since the game has "evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way".

The improvements are due to be rolled out in a launch day patch, as the amount of time required to make them was "undercalculated".

The announcement post for the delay did not address what this would mean for members of the development team, who have already been working mandatory six-day weeks since September.

The iPhone 12 goes up to 256GB for $949/£949, which is a robust amount of storage, while the iPhone 12 Pro 256GB model costs $1.099/£1,099.

So in that case the delta between the two phones shrinks to $150/£150.

If you want 512GB, only the iPhone 12 Pro goes that high — if you’re willing to part with $1,299/£1,299.

Australian scientists have discovered a detached reef more than 500 metres high – taller than the Empire State Building – at the northern end of the Great Barrier Reef.

It is the first large detached reef found in the area since the late 19th century when seven others were discovered over a 150km stretch of ocean, Bridge said.

“What it highlights is how little we know about a lot of the ocean, even the Great Barrier Reef.
