In the last couple of decades, the popularity of e-bicycles has grown manifold and there were around 210 million such bicycles used daily in 2016. China holds a major share of the overall market and the trend is expected to continue in the years to come.

This new OTA update is currently rolling out for Galaxy Note 20 Ultra users in Germany and is claimed to improve battery life.

It comes with the build number N986BXXX1ATJ1 and is 255.63MB in size. As per the changelog, the update will also bring stability improvements for dark mode and the camera.

Latest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra update to further improve battery life

While the changelog also mentions the October Android security patch, the previous update already included it. Interestingly, the regular Galaxy Note 20 hasn’t received this new update yet. While the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in the US comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC, the European variant packs the in-house Exynos 990 SoC.

Hence, no one should sideload the firmware file intended for the Exynos variant on the Snapdragon variant or vice versa. In the coming days, this new update might expand to other regions as well.

If there is no notification regarding the new update, users can manually check for the latest update by going to Settings > Software Update > Download. Once the update shows up on your smartphone, tap on the “Install now” button to download and install it.

Historic mansion on Charleston’s Battery reopened as boutique hotel after renovation | Business

Throughout its history, the mansion at 20 South Battery has been known for its gatherings. Just last month, a historic marker was installed in front of it, naming it as the birthplace of the now 100-year-old Preservation Society

Founder Susan Pringle Frost hosted the organization’s first-ever meeting in the house in 1920. About 50 years before that, Colonel Lathers of the Union Army made the mansion a place where U.S. senators and New Yorkers met with locals.

Now-owner Dr. Jack Schaeffer, a native Charlestonian and part-time Sullivan’s Island resident, hopes the property’s reputation as a host will continue under his guidance. He’s just spent 18 months restoring the 1843 mansion after buying it in 2018. It was reopened as an 11-room boutique hotel on Sept. 10.

While the coronavirus pandemic has put his plans for utilizing the house’s large ballroom on pause, Schaeffer said a large part of his “philosophy and vision for the house” is to fill it often with special gatherings and charity events.

“I love bringing people together,” he said. 

It would be like “Great Gatsby Charleston-ized,” he said, referencing the literary character’s reputation as a frequent host for fine parties, though his planned functions are much more low-key than Gatsby’s: An annual literary festival, for examples, is planning to host a small number of guests there later this year. 

Formerly called the Battery Carriage House Inn while under the ownership of the Drayton-Hastie family, the property now goes by its address, 20 South Battery. All guest rooms have been redone and outfitted with new amenities, like Smart TVs and redone outlets, and antique beds dated pre-1870, Schaeffer said.
