Freescale Wireless Charging Introduced for Tablets, Laptops

121414 battery charge

The fastest wireless battery charging solution available to consumers could be just a few months away — even closer. For a lot of smartphone, tablet and even laptop users, that could mean the end of USB and other power cords winding their way across your office and desk. And it could also mean more mobility outside the office free of the need to always look for an outlet.

That’s because Freescale, an Austin, Texas, semiconductor company says it is close to releasing a wireless battery charger that’s three-times faster than any common charger available.

Destroying Smugglers’ Airstrips: The New King of Coke (Excerpt)

Watch “The New King of Coke (Full Length)” – http://bit.ly/1AiOHUh The United Nations announced in 2013 that Peru has overtaken Colombia as the world’s top producer of coca, the raw plant material used to manufacture cocaine. For the past two decades, Colombia has been virtually synonymous with cocaine. Now that Peru has become the global epicenter of cocaine production, the Andean nation runs the risk of becoming the world’s next great narco state. The Peruvian government is trying to crack down on the problem by ramping up eradication of coca plants, and devoting military and police resources to interdiction efforts. Despite the response — and a hefty amount of foreign aid devoted to combatting cocaine production — Peruvian coke is being consumed in the nightclubs of Lima and in cities around the world like never before. VICE News traveled to Peru to learn more about the government’s battle plan against cocaine, and to see how nearly every aspect of Peruvian society is caught up in the fight. We witnessed how the fine, white powder has forced an entire nation to the brink in the global war on drugs. In this excerpt, VICE News correspondent Kaj Larsen heads to the VRAE — a fertile region in the center of Peru — with Peruvian special forces, as they set out to destroy clandestine airstrips used by smugglers.

Dismemberment and Displacement in Buenaventura (Full Length)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News The coastal city of Buenaventura is Colombia’s most violent city. There, two rival gangs — La Empresa and Los Urabeños, both successors of paramilitary groups — fight for control, with the city’s 400,000 residents caught in the middle. According to a recent report by Human Rights Watch, more than 50,000 of Buenaventura’s residents have been forced to flee their homes since 2011 out of fear of extortion, death threats, or forced gang recruitment. Adding to the pervasive fear are accounts of mutilated body parts found washed up along nearby shores — discards from the grimly-named “chopping houses,” where victims are dismembered alive. VICE News traveled to Buenaventura to meet with security forces, government officials, crime reporters, gang members, and victims, to try to understand why this city on Colombia’s Pacific coast has became so violent, and what’s being done about it.

The Israeli Hospital Admitting Syrians: The War Next Door (Part 2)

Watch Part 1 — http://bit.ly/1AuJhp5 In August, al Nusra Front jihadists took control of Syria’s side of the border crossing with Israel and kidnapped over 40 United Nations peacekeepers — who have since been released. But al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-affiliate, isn’t Israel’s only threat from Syria. President Bashar al-Assad’s military, in a possible effort to bait Israel into its civil war to shore up Arab sympathies, has been lobbing mortars across the border. Just a few weeks ago, the Israeli military shot down a Syrian plane flying over the Golan Heights — the first time it has done so since the 1980s. In part two of a five-part series, VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky visits the Ziv Medical Center, a hospital that is unique for its proximity to the international borders with Lebanon and Syria, and for treating victims of hostilities and soldiers injured on both sides of the border.
