According to F+W, first steps will focus on building a U.S. publishing operation for Burda Style—a Burda Style magazine, e-magazines, books and e-books, as well as PDF sewing pattern collections and instruction programs. F+W will also offer direct-to-consumer online product sales and will begin growing the U.S. market through SEO and SEM campaigns, email marketing and social media.”The business will quickly scale to a multi-million dollar business with a robust e-commerce business, online events, live events, books, e-books and a magazine that launches this fall,” adds Nussbaum.See Also: F+W Media Hires Amazon Exec to Fill VP Ecommerce RoleF+W Media made several acquisitions in 2012, including enthusiast publisher Aspire Media and The Martha Pullen Compnay—a deal that set up F+W with a hard-goods fulfillment operation. Craft and enthusiast media and e-commerce company F+W Media has struck a licensing partnership with Germany-based Hubert Burda Media. The deal sets up F+W as the U.S. and Canadian publishing and sales operation for what will become Burda Style USA—a digital, e-commerce and print platform for DIY fashion and sewing enthusiasts.Burda Media, a $3 billion company based in Munich, has also extended its publishing operations across Switzerland, Eastern Europe and Russia and until now had no representation in the U.S. or Canadian markets, except for a New York-based office running a U.S. website. As part of the deal, F+W will take over operation of that website, which currently has over 800,000 registered users, says F+W chairman and CEO David Nussbaum. “Essentially we are responsible for everything e-media, e-commerce, sales and content. But we also get to tap into the Burda Style global content machine. The intent is to broaden our relationship into other opportunities with Burda.”

Sai PallaviSai Pallavi/FacebookSai Pallavi seems to have probably bagged the biggest film of her career. The fast-growing actress has now been approached by SS Rajamouli for his mega-budget movie RRR, which stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan.There are strong rumours doing rounds that Sai Pallavi has been offered to play one of the female leads in the film. She is being considered for the role, which was supposed to be played by Daisy Edgar Jones, who walked out of the film due to personal issues.”Unfortunately due to family circumstances I am unable to participate in filming for this wonderful film. The script is truly brilliant and it’s such a great character, I hope whomever they cast receives as warm a welcome as I have and I wish the production all the best. [sic]” Daisy Edgar Jones had posted after her exit from RRR.Later, the names of Shraddha Kapoor, Nithya Menen and a few others were doing rounds. In the end, the offer has come Sai Pallavi’s way, says the latest buzz.It has to be noted that Alia Bhatt is also playing the female lead in the SS Rajamouli’s creation.On the other hand, Sai Pallavi, who shot to fame with Malayalam movie Premam, has tasted success in Telugu and Tamil movies already. Her dance skills have won her a huge number of fans and it gets clearly evident after Her Rowdy Baby song from Kollywood film Maari 2 garnered close to five crore views on YouTube page.Coming back to the SS Rajamouli’s creation, it is a mega-budget film produced by DVV Daniah. Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn plays a role with negative shade, while Alia Bhatt will romance Ram Charan in the period drama. The movie is made in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and other Indian languages simultaneously and RRR is common name for all the languages.The film is set to release on July 30, 2020.
Ten Rohingya Muslim men with their hands bound kneel in Inn Din village. Picture taken 1 September 2017. ReutersMyanmar’s Rohingya refugees have told a UN envoy who visited their camp in Bangladesh this week that they will return home if it is safe and if they are granted citizenship rights, a UN statement said Tuesday.UN envoy for Myanmar, Christine Schraner Burgener, met the Muslim Rohingya in Cox’s Bazar during a three-day visit to Bangladesh from July 14 to 16, just weeks after holding talks with Myanmar’s leaders on the refugee crisis.The envoy “heard from the people accounts of unimaginable atrocities committed in Rakhine State,” said a UN statement.“Despite these serious violations of human rights, they expressed to the envoy their hope to return home if security could be guaranteed and citizenship could be provided,” it added.More than 700,000 ethnic Rohingya have fled an offensive by Myanmar troops launched nearly a year ago in reprisal for attacks on border posts by Rohingya rebels.UN rights officials have documented allegations of mass killings, rape and torching of villages at the hands of Myanmar’s military, which the Myanmar authorities have denied.The United States, Britain and France as well as the United Nations have described the military campaign as ethnic cleansing.Schraner Burgener, who was appointed in April, said Bangladesh needs more international aid to host the Rohingya and tackle the risk of landslides from monsoons that have already killed 12 people near the camps.The envoy will deliver her first briefing to the Security Council on Monday, which will be held behind closed doors.
“Through our successful fabrication of ultrathin perovskite oxides down to the monolayer limit, we’ve created a new class of two-dimensional materials,” says Xiaoqing Pan, professor of materials science & engineering and Henry Samueli Endowed Chair in Engineering at UCI. “Since these crystals have strongly correlated effects, we anticipate they will exhibit qualities similar to graphene that will be foundational to next-generation energy and information technologies.” Credit: Xiaoqing Pan / UCI Explore further Growth and transfer of ultrathin freestanding SrTiO3 films. a, Schematic of a film with an SAO buffer layer. b, The sacrificial SAO layer is dissolved in water to release the top oxide films with the mechanical support of PDMS. c, New heterostructures and interfaces are formed when the freestanding film is transferred onto the desired substrate. d, e, Atomically resolved cross-sectional (d) and low-magnification plan-view (e) HAADF images of a two-unit-cell freestanding STO film transferred to a silicon wafer and a holey carbon TEM grid, respectively. f, g, Atomically resolved cross-sectional (f) and low-magnification planview (g) HAADF images of a representative four-unit-cell freestanding STO film, showing the excellent flexibility of ultrathin freestanding films.

DOI: 10.1038/s41586-019-1255-7Press release © 2019 Science X Network Birkhölzer and Koster point out that the work done by the combined Chinese and American team demonstrated that it is possible to produce at least some transition-metal oxides in a thin film format. Their research also allayed fears that such a film would collapse, making it unusable. Birkhölzer and Koster point out that many new materials are made by going to extremes—making them really big or really small. Making them small has led to many recent discoveries, they note, including a technique to make graphene. One area of research has focused on ways to produce transition-metal oxides in a thinner format. It has been slow going, however, due to their crystalline nature. Unlike some materials, transition-metal oxides do not naturally form into layers with a top layer that can be peeled off. Instead, they form in strongly bonded 3-D structures. Because of this, some in the field have worried that it might never be possible to produce them in desired forms. But now, the researchers with this new effort have found a way to produce two transition-metal oxides (perovskite oxides strontium titanate and bismuth ferrite) in a thin-film format.The process developed by the researchers involved using molecular beam epitaxy to apply a buffer layer onto a substrate followed by a layer of perovskite. Once the sandwich of materials was made, the researchers used water to dissolve the buffer layer, allowing the perovskite to be removed and placed onto other substrates. The researchers report that their process worked so well they were able to extract films of perovskite near the theoretical limit—one square unit cell (with approximately 0.4-nanometer sides).

In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes the process they developed and how well it worked when tested.
