More traffic fatalities due to accidents with bicycles and motorcycles

After two years of decline, more people were killed in accidents on german roads again. The federal statistical office spoke on wednesday of 3265 traffic fatalities in 2018, an increase of 2.7 percent compared to the previous year.

At the same time, this is the third-lowest level since 1950, the office reported, citing previous figures.

According to results from january to november, the increase in accident fatalities is due to an increase in fatalities among bicyclists and motorcyclists – and for bicyclists, with a total of 432 fatalities, this was 13.6 percent or 50 fatalities higher than a year earlier. Pedelecs, which are counted with bicycles in the statistics, saw a particularly high increase in the number of riders killed, with a 28.4 percent rise, said a spokesman for the federal statistical office.

By the time of the 2020 summer olympics in japan, it will be possible to offer hard drives with 20 terabytes, said a spokesman for TDK in chiba near tokyo. The rifle is said to be necessary to handle the huge amounts of data generated by, among other things, ultra-high-resolution TV recording. TDK assumes that by 2020, a terabyte of data will be generated and stored for every person on earth.

After explosive growth in hard disk capacity over the past 20 years, growth has recently stagnated. With the usual magnetic data recording, 2.5 inch hard drives with four terabytes are currently the maximum.

For the drastic increase in capacity, the storage medium is heated with a laser at the exact point where the data is written. This will simplify the writing process. The written files are then stabilized by quickly cooling the medium again. Experts call this procedure heat assited magnetic recording (HAMR).
