South Korean tech major Samsung may make bezel-free TVs reality soon. The company is mulling to introduce a zero-bezel TV at the upcoming CES 2020 in early January, with mass production starting in February.

While the finer details aren’t available, the design reportedly welds the display and main body “more closely” to eliminate the usual borders on sets 65 inches and larger. And we do mean eliminate — this supposedly “really doesn’t have a bezel”, Engadget reported on Tuesday.


The Zero Bezel TV will be available only in sizes from 65-inches and higher.

This could mean that the manufacturing process is complicated enough that it’s not suitable for smaller sizes.

It could also mean that the tech major wants to further differentiate its premium TVs as more consumers opt for larger screens.

On top of Samsung’s earlier work, the company trademarked the “Zero Bezel” brand name earlier in the year. Neither is a guarantee you’ll see something at CES. The trade show is often Samsung’s preferred venue for TV introductions, the report added. (IANS)

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
