The US rolled out 5G services on Wednesday, notwithstanding the US Federal Aviation Administration’s warning and fears that it may interfere with crucial on-board instruments. And, amid this fear, several countries either rescheduled or cancelled flights to American cities. But the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said that there was no immediate safety concern in their region where the latest technology is also being introduced. India, meanwhile, will also launch this service in the next few months. So will the new technology come in the way of flight safety here, our next report tries to find some answers

After the clash of two technologies, let us move on to man's brush with nature. According to an estimate, earth’s temperature has risen by 0.14° F (0.08° C) per decade since 1880.

Watch our next report to know which are the stocks and sectors that analysts are most bullish on
