The terabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix tera represents the fourth power of 1000, means 1012 in the International System of Units, therefore one terabyte is one trillion bytes; the unit symbol for the terabyte is TB. 1 TB = 1000000000000bytes = 1012bytes = 1000gigabytes. 1000 TB = 1 petabyte A related unit, the tebibyte, using a binary prefix, is equal to 10244 bytes. One terabyte is about 0.9095 TiB. Despite the introduction of these standardized binary prefixes, the terabyte is still commonly used in some computer operating systems Microsoft Windows, to denote 1099511627776 bytes for disk drive capacity; the prefix tera was assigned in the international SI system of weights and measures in 1960. It is derived from the Greek word τέρας teras, meaning "monster", but there is also a connotation with the Greek word tetra, meaning "four", similar to the subsequent prefix names. Early usage of the word terabyte in computer science include: Optical disk storage: 1985 Supercomputer mass storage: ca. 1992 Supercomputer memory: 2005 Hard disk drives: 2007 Tape drives: 2010 Motherboard memory: 2011 Examples of the use of terabyte to describe data sizes in different fields are: Library data: The U.

S. Library of Congress Web Capture team claims that as of March 2014 the library had "collected about 525 terabytes of web archive data" and that it was adding about 5 terabytes per month. Computer hardware: Hitachi introduced the world's first one terabyte hard disk drive in 2007. SD card: Micron and SanDisk unveiled their microSDXC cards of 1 TB capacity, in February 2019. September 2016 Western Digital announced that a prototype of the first 1 TB SDXC card will be demonstrated at Photokina. Orders of magnitude


Autenti was a Roman–Berber civitas and bishopric in Africa Proconsularis. It was a diocese of the Roman Catholic Church. Autenti was a civitas of the Roman province of Byzacena, the ruins of which are situated between Sbeitla and Thyna in modern Tunisia; the town was the seat of an ancient episcopal. There are two known bishops of Autenti. Hortensius was among the Catholic bishops summoned to Carthage in 484 by Vandal king Huneric; the second is Optatus Dei gratia episcopus Ecclesiae Sanctae Autentensis, one of the signatories of the letter addressed by the bishops of Byzacena in 646 Emperor Constans II. Both these bishops are from late antiquity with no references to the diocese during the great councils of the 4th century indicating that the bishopric may have been of late establishment. Today Autenti survives as titular bishopric and the current bishop is Gilberto Alfredo Vizcarra Mori, of Peru.

HMIS Baluchistan (J182)

HMIS Baluchistan was a Bangor-class minesweeper built for the Royal Navy, but transferred to the Royal Indian Navy during the Second World War. The Bangor class was designed as a small minesweeper that could be built in large numbers by civilian shipyards. Baluchistan displaced 656 long tons at 820 long tons at deep load; the ship had an overall length of 174 feet, a beam of 28 feet 6 inches and a draught of 10 feet 3 inches. The ship's complement consisted of ratings, she was powered by two Parsons geared steam turbines, each driving one shaft, using steam provided by two Admiralty three-drum boilers. The engines gave a maximum speed of 16 knots. Baluchistan carried a maximum of 160 long tons of fuel oil that gave her a range of 2,800 nautical miles at 10 knots; the turbine-powered Bangors were armed with a 12 pounder 3-inch anti-aircraft gun and a single QF 2-pounder AA gun. In some ships the 2-pounder was replaced a single or twin 20 mm Oerlikon AA gun, while most ships were fitted with four additional single Oerlikon mounts over the course of the war.

For escort work, her minesweeping gear could be exchanged for around 40 depth charges. HMIS Baluchistan was ordered from the Blyth Shipbuilding Company for the Royal Navy as HMS Greenock in 1939. However, before she was launched, she was transferred to the Royal Indian Navy and commissioned as Baluchistan, she served in the RIN during World War II. Baluchistan was a part of the Eastern Fleet, escorted numerous convoys between Africa, British India and Australia in 1943-45. After the independence, she was among the vessels transferred to Pakistan, where she was renamed PNS Baluchistan. Chesneau, Roger, ed.. Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships 1922–1946.

Stripe-chested antwren

The stripe-chested antwren is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae found in Bolivia and Peru and southwestern Colombia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, degraded former forest; the stripe-chested antwren is a small bird growing to a length of about 9.4 cm. The male has a black head and black upper parts boldly streaked with white; the black wings have white edges to the flight feathers. The tail feathers are black with a broad white tip; the throat and lower underparts are white, the breast and flanks are white streaked with black. The female has the back black streaked with dark buff; the remaining upper parts and the tail are similar to those of the male, but the throat and breast are creamy-ochre, with a clear demarcation between this region and the lower underparts, which are white. This antwren is native to the foothills and eastern slopes of the Andes at altitudes between about 150 and 1,800 m.

Its range extends from eastern Colombia through Peru to northern Bolivia. The species is found singly or in pairs, but not in larger groups, it hops on the ground and flits about in the lowest few metres of undergrowth at the edges of forests, in clearings, or among vines near streams. The diet includes spiders. Little is known of its breeding habits. M. longicauda is a common species and the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being of "least concern", believing that any possible decline in the bird's total population is not sufficiently rapid to place it in a more threatened category
