Samsung Pay launches in India

first_img PhonePe claims India payments market leadership Samsung launched its mobile payment app in India, offering compatibility with popular wallet application Paytm and the Government’s United Payment Interface.India is the 12th market where Samsung Pay is available, following its initial release in the US and South Korea during 2015. The app is available on a range of Samsung devices, including its flagship handsets.Its service in India will enable payments via NFC and Magnetic Secure Transmission – which emulates the swiping of a traditional debit or credit card. Using a combination of both technologies, the company said its system will work on the majority of point of sale terminals currently used in the country.Samsung Pay will also offer person-to-person money transfer services through its integration with Paytm – one of the most popular wallet apps in India – and the Government’s UPI scheme, which will enable transfer to accounts held with the country’s mainstream banks.The launch comes during ongoing initiatives by the Indian government to reduce the country’s reliance on cash and promote the use of digital payments.HC Hong, president and CEO of Samsung Southwest Asia said: “Samsung Pay is an example of how we continue to push the boundaries of innovations to make life simpler and better for consumers. I am confident Samsung Pay will redefine digital payments and contribute to Digital India.”Its launch partners in the country include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, SBI Cards and Standard Chartered Bank. The company confirmed Citibank India is also soon set to add compatibility for the system.

Listen: Molecular Biologist Douglas Axe Explains the Protein Evolution Problem

first_imgEvolution Listen: Molecular Biologist Douglas Axe Explains the Protein Evolution ProblemEvolution News @DiscoveryCSCFebruary 4, 2020, 12:37 PM Evolution NewsEvolution News & Science Today (EN) provides original reporting and analysis about evolution, neuroscience, bioethics, intelligent design and other science-related issues, including breaking news about scientific research. It also covers the impact of science on culture and conflicts over free speech and academic freedom in science. Finally, it fact-checks and critiques media coverage of scientific issues. Share On a new episode of ID the Future, host Jonathan Witt sits down with molecular biologist Douglas Axe at the recent Dallas Conference on Science & Faith. Dr. Axe, author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed, had his research on protein folds published in the Journal of Molecular Biology, work showing that random mutations are not up to the task of building fundamentally new protein folds, a finding that poses a major challenge to modern evolutionary theory. Download the podcast or listen to it here.If evolution can’t build something as basic as a new protein fold, how could it build whole new organs and body plans in the history of life? But Witt presents Axe with an objection: Axe couldn’t possibly have tested more than the tiniest fraction of a fraction of all the possible amino acid combinations for the protein he studied, so how can we trust his findings? Tune in to hear Axe’s answer, and to learn about other lines of evidence confirming his research. This is one of the most lucid explanations of the protein evolution problem that you will hear.Photo: Douglas Axe speaking at the recent Dallas Conference on Science & Faith, by Chris Morgan.
