In 2020 the 5SOS boys are returning home, kicking off a massive arena tour.
The boys were home to perform in Sunday’s massive Fire Fight Australia fundraiser to raise help money in support of the devastating bushfires.
On Monday, there was more news for fans of the Aussie band made up of Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, and Michael Clifford.
The second (symbol: s, abbreviation: sec) is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), commonly understood and historically defined as 1⁄86400 of a day – this factor derived from the division of the day first into 24 hours, then to 60 minutes and finally to 60 seconds each. Analog clocks and watches often have sixty tick marks on their faces, representing seconds (and minutes), and a “second hand” to mark the passage of time in seconds. Digital clocks and watches often have a two-digit seconds counter. The second is also part of several other units of measurement like meters per second for velocity, meters per second per second for acceleration, and cycles per second for frequency.
Although the historical definition of the unit was based on this division of the Earth’s rotation cycle, the formal definition in the International System of Units (SI) is a much steadier timekeeper: it is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the caesium frequency ∆νCs, the unperturbed ground-state hyperfine transition frequency of the caesium-133 atom, to be 9192631770 when expressed in the unit Hz, which is equal to s−1.
Because the Earth’s rotation varies and is also slowing ever so slightly, a leap second is periodically added to clock time to keep clocks in sync with Earth’s rotation.
Multiples of seconds are usually counted in hours and minutes. Fractions of a second are usually counted in tenths or hundredths. In scientific work, small fractions of a second are counted in milliseconds (thousandths), microseconds (millionths), nanoseconds (billionths), and sometimes smaller units of a second. An everyday experience with small fractions of a second is a 1-gigahertz microprocessor which has a cycle time of 1 nanosecond. Camera shutter speeds are often expressed in fractions of a second, such as 1⁄30 second or 1⁄1000 second.
Sexagesimal divisions of the day from a calendar based on astronomical observation have existed since the third millennium BC, though they were not seconds as we know them today. Small divisions of time could not be measured back then, so such divisions were mathematically derived. The first timekeepers that could count seconds accurately were pendulum clocks invented in the 17th century. Starting in the 1950s, atomic clocks became better timekeepers than earth’s rotation, and they continue to set the standard today.
5 Seconds Of Summer Announce 2020 Australian Arena Tour
Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling after spring and before autumn. At the summer solstice, there is earliest sunrise and latest sunset, and the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition, and culture. When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.
Taking their No Shame arena tour around the world, the boys will be heading back home to round out a massive year.
Queen Performs Iconic ‘Live Aid’ Set For Fire Fight Australia Bushfire Relief Concert
Queen, fronted by Adam Lambert, has performed the iconic 1985 Live Aid set for the first time at the Fire Fight Australia Bushfire Relief concert.
The tour coincides with the upcoming release of their fourth studio album CALM which hits shelves on March 27.
So far, the boys have released three tracks from Calm, lead single “Easier” was followed by “Teeth” and most recently their third single — and the title of their tour — “No Shame”.
In November the guys then head back home to perform six massive outdoor shows kicking off on the Gold Coast. The boys head to Brisbane, Perth, Newcastle, Melbourne and finish up in the Sydney Opera House forecourt. It’ll be their first tour back home since 2018.
