Legit Reviews is at the Micron Insight 2019 in San Francisco today and we just got a chance to see the Micron X100 drive in person. Micron claims that the X100 is the world’s fastest SSD with over 9 GB/s of sequential Read/Write bandwidth and up to 2.5 million IOPS. This is Micron’s first SSD to use 3D XPoint memory and appears to be using the PCIe 3.0 x16 interface..
Estimating trading costs in the absence of recorded data is a problem that continues to puzzle financial market researchers. We address this challenge by introducing two low frequency bid ask spread estimators using daily high and low transaction prices.The range of mid prices is an increasing function of the sampling interval, while the bid ask spread and the relationship between trading direction and the mid price are not constrained by it and are therefore independent. Monte Carlo simulations and data analysis from the equity and foreign exchange markets demonstrate that these models (especially SHL2) significantly out perform the most widely used low frequency estimators, such as those proposed in Corwin and Schultz (2012) and most recently in Abdi and Ronaldo (2017).
Although liquid water cannot exist on Mars’ surface, owing to its thin atmosphere, large concentrations of ice water exist within the polar ice caps Planum Boreum and Planum Australe. In addition, a permafrost mantle stretches from the pole to latitudes of about 60, meaning that water exists beneath much of the Martian surface in the form of ice water. Radar data and soil samples have confirmed the presence of shallow subsurface water at the middle latitudes as well..
As noted by other researchers (Hughes 2006a, 2006b; Southall Fallon, 2011) ‘gay’ is used interchangeably with ‘LGBT’ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) depending on the context. For example, some gay tour operators market cruises as lesbian, whilst others as all gay which may appeal to both gay men and lesbians, and even some heterosexuals. LGBT is used to represent a range of inclusive identities beyond just gay and lesbian..
A Twisted Plot?With the CDC as confused as the general public, crackpot theories regarding the origins of the disease began to emerge. Some insisted that nickel carbonyl intoxication was the cause. Wilder allegations included conspiracy theories that communists or pharmaceutical companies were conspiring to wipe out American veterans.
“The accusations have always been baseless. The members of these organizations have served their nation and the people of Egypt honorably in advance of democracy, the rule of law, and human rights areas in which much work remains,” he said in a statement. At least 30 human rights workers and administrators have been banned from travel.
