FILTER BASKET - NT — E&B Lab
The E&B LAB filter NT is the evolution of the E&B LAB filters. Compared to the standard filter, it has a Nanoquartz coating.

The advantage of this technology is greater anti-adherence that facilitates the coffee puck removal from the filter. In addition, this technology improves the filter surface cleaning making it more antibacterial and easy to clean.

Intel to Release Discrete Graphics Card In 2020, GPUs For Desktop Gaming Coming Too
Intel's admission that it would target the desktop PC market isn't entirely surprising. Much like Nvidia does with its GPUs and Intel already does with its desktop CPUs, sales to the broader desktop PC market drive up production volume and build the economy of scale that lowers costs. In turn, that assures low pricing and high margins on GPUs designed for the data center.

How Trump Voters Decide Who to Trust – Trust Issues – Medium
"Often this phrase was met by laughter and shaking heads; most people told me there were few sources they “trusted.” I followed up by asking how they had learned about the candidate they just voted for. A few people mentioned that Facebook had reminded them to vote and provided a link to help them find out where their polling station was. But when it came to learning about the candidates, voters repeatedly told me they trusted Google more than newspapers for “unbiased” and “accurate” information on their candidate of choice. [...] Few people I spoke with understood that the keywords they use to find information online can actually shift the ideological slant of their search results. Even after doing research, I’ve seen how voters walk away from Google armed with alternative news and alternative facts."

All of Antony’s Roman troops either changed loyalty to Octavian or were taken hostage with most of Antony’s fleet destroyed in battle.
The Final War of the Roman Republic, also known as Antony's Civil War or The War between Antony and Octavian, was the last of the Roman civil wars of the Roman Republic, fought between Mark Antony (assisted by Cleopatra) and Octavian. After the Roman Senate declared war on the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, Antony, her lover and ally, betrayed the Roman government and joined the war on Cleopatra’s side. After the decisive victory for Octavian at the Battle of Actium, Cleopatra and Antony withdrew to Alexandria, where Octavian besieged the city until both Antony and Cleopatra committed suicide.

Following the end of the war, Octavian brought peace to the Roman state that had been plagued by a century of civil wars. Octavian became the most powerful man in the Roman world and the Senate bestowed upon him the name of Augustus in 27 BC. Octavian, now Augustus, would be the first Roman Emperor and would transform the oligarchic/democratic Republic into the autocratic Roman Empire.

The last Republican Civil War would mark the beginning of the Pax Romana, which remains the longest period of peace and stability that Europe has seen in recorded history....

The Coming Wave of Digital Disruption
"All disruption (digital or otherwise) takes place on an industry-wide scale, forcing a significant shift in profitability from one prevailing business model to another. The new model typically provides customers with the same or better value at a much lower cost. Companies wedded to the old business model lose ground, and some are pushed out of business. Challengers that embrace the new business model gain advantage and take a dominant position in the market"
