The power button and volume rocker rest on the right side of the device, but overall the front gives off iPhone vibes. The back, on the other hand, is more akin to HTC’s most recent flagship, the HTC 10. Antenna bands sit at the top and bottom of the device, and there’s a circular camera, flash, and a circular fingerprint sensor at the top center.
The Note 4 comes in silver, gold, and dark gray color options.

study of brain scans and ultrasoundpictures of 45 Brazilian babies whose mothers were infected with Zika inpregnancy shows that the virus can inflict serious damage to many different parts of the fetal brain beyond microcephaly, the condition of unusually small heads that has become the sinister signature of Zika.
The images, published Tuesday in the journal Radiology, also suggest a grim possibility: Because some of the damage was seen in brain areas that continue to develop after birth, it may be that babies born without obvious impairment will experience problems as they grow.
“It really brings to the forefront the importance of truly understanding the impact of Zika virus and the fact that we need to follow children who not only are exposed to Zika in pregnancy, but even those who don’t appear to have any complications at birth,” said Dr. Catherine

I’ve gone through two major investment rounds at my company, BodeTree , and am in the process of finalizing our third . Through those experiences, I’ve learned a thing or two about what investors really care about.
