On the anniversary of the worst terrorist atrocity suffered by the United States, the 9/11 Museum has become a lightning rod for Americans attempting, more than a decade on, to make sense of the World Trade Centre attacks. To some, locating a $700million glass facility in the shadow of the original towers constitutes a howling gesture of disrespect towards the thousands who lost their lives - the remains of hundreds of victims have to this day never been retrieved - and their families.

Apple's event is over and matched the number of iPhones from last year – the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus finally brought the long-awaited screen boost, but that's certainly not all there's to them. There was another device on stage too - the Apple Watch smart wearable. With so much new hardware you'd be forgiven if you've missed something, so here's a quick wrap-up of all the major announcements.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is not only the larger, but also the more premium new smartphone. It offers a 5.5" screen of 1080p resolution, superior battery life and optical image stabilization as its exclusive new features.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, one of the most anticipated smartphones lately, has finally became official in Berlin. It features a 5.7" Super AMOLED screen of QHD resolution (that's 515ppi), and runs on the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset with a quad-core 2.7GHz Krait 450 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Naturally, Samsung will be offering another flavor of the Note 4 with its proprietary Exynos 5433 chipset, which packs an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A57 @ 1.9GHz and four Cortex-A53 @ 1.3GHz, Mali-T760 graphics and 3GB of RAM. The only other real difference between the two models is the Snapdragon-powered flavor offers LTE Cat.6 (300Mbps) connectivity, while the Exynos-based version stops at LTE Cat.4 (150Mbps).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 incorporates the new design introduced by the Galaxy Alpha - a stylish metal chassis, high-quality rear plastic cover and protective screen glass with rounded Lumia-like edges.

The Mid-autumn festival is the second most important festival after the Spring Festival to Chinese people. Every year, when the festival comes people go home from every corner of the country and the world to meet their family and have dinner with them, admire the full moon and eat mooncakes.
Chinese people believe a full moon is a symbol of peace, prosperity, and family reunion. On Mid-Autumn Festival night the moon is supposed to be the brightest and fullest, which is why the festival is also known as the"Day of Reunion" and the "Moon Festival"
