ISRO Does it again!
The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro's) workhorse PSLV-C46, carrying RISAT-2B, a radar-imaging earth observation satellite, took off successfully from the Sriharikota space port. The satellite will beef up India’s surveillance capabilities in the sky.
After a successful countdown that started at 04:30 a.m. (IST) on Tuesday, the rocket was launched at 05:30 a.m. on Wednesday early morning as scheduled from the the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, near Chennai.
About 15 minutes into flight, the rocket placed RISAT-2B into an orbit of about 555 km.
Stating that he was extremely happy to announce that PSLV-C46 has successfully injected RISAT-2B in precise orbit, Isro chairman K Sivan said with this mission, the PSLV rocket had crossed the landmark of lofting of 50 tonnes since it started flying. Adding that the PSLV satellite has put into orbit 350 satellites, he said, “The rocket had a piggy back payload, the indigenously developed Vikram computer chip that will be used in the future rockets.”
PSLV-C46 is the 48th mission of PSLV and the 14th flight in 'core-alone' configuration (without the use of solid strap-on motors). This is the 72nd launch vehicle mission from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota and 36th launch from the First Launch pad.
PSLV, in its 48th mission, carried the 615-kg RISAT-2B into an orbit of 555 km at an inclination of 37 degrees, Isro officials said. The application would help agriculture and forestry and also support disaster management initiatives.

Google Glass 2.0
Google just annouced its new version of Google Glass which focus primarily on business. The Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is expected to cost $999, a very steep price and not being sold directly to consumer. What's difference from the first edtion is that It's got a new processor, a better camera and a USB-C port for faster charging.
The basic design of the Glass hasn't changed much, it's still a simple, light-weight heads-up display. It's different from the Microsoft HoloLens as it's not mixed reality. In addition to the Glass, Google will offer many different accesories for the Glass. Such as safety frames, larger batteries and much other components. The Glass will utilize android as it's primary operating system.
The Glass was originally designed as a mass-market AR headset, but there were many complaints about price and functionality, Google redesigned it as a niche tool for professions that requires mass data and precision. Google claims "faster production times, improved quality and reduced costs" can be achieved through the Glass.

Logic - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
This album brings about the official follow-up to YSIV, to which fans have not taken a liking to. A significant focus that can be found is on the success of Logic and the wealth that has been associated with it. Listening through the album you're flooded with mundane statements about his affluent lifestyle rather than the sincere and passionate hip-hop artist we know of. Between the lines, we see some big names—Eminem, G-Eazy, Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa—with bars that continue the vibes, including the only Will Smith feature of 2019 so far. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind starts up comfortably but with overwhelming drums. However, the tempo absolutely matches Logics' style and flow allowing him to follow through with confessional lyricism. We see in Homicide (Feat. Eminem) Logic spewing lines as he is well known for reminding us of his initial mixtapes as well as the sight of Slim Shady. Knowing the previous work of Logic, this album as a whole felt wasted over mentions of fame and wealth, and a lack of what we grew to love.
Personally speaking, I enjoyed a handful of songs that I would deem memorable, but assigning a figure to the album I would have to rate it as 5/10.
