Polar Bears Crowd On Russian Island In Sign Of Arctic Change "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

A boatload of tourists in the far eastern Russian Arctic thought they were seeing clumps of ice on the shore, before the jaw-dropping realisation that some 200 polar bears were roaming on the mountain slope.

"It was a completely unique situation," said Alexander Gruzdev, director of the Wrangel Island nature reserve where the encounter in September happened. "We were all gobsmacked, to be honest."

The bears had come to feast on the carcass of a bowhead whale that washed ashore, later resting around the food source. The crowd included many families, including two mothers trailed by a rare four cubs each, Gruzdev told AFP.

Climate change means ice, where polar bears are most at home, is melting earlier in the year and so polar bears have to spend longer on land, scientists say.

This might wow tourists but means the bears, more crammed together on coasts and islands, will eventually face greater competition for the little food there is on land.

Locals are also at risk from hungry animals venturing into villages.

A Thanksgiving Carol: How Those Smart Engineers at Twitter Screwed Me "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Thanksgiving Holiday is a time for family and cheer. Well, a time for family. It's the holiday where we ask our doctor relatives to look at that weird skin growth, and for our geek relatives to fix our computers. This tale is of such computer support, and how the "smart" engineers at Twitter have ruined this for life.

My mom is smart, but not a good computer user. I get my enthusiasm for science and math from my mother, and she has no problem understanding the science of computers. She keeps up when I explain Bitcoin. But she has difficulty using computers. She has this emotional, irrational belief that computers are out to get her.

This makes helping her difficult. Every problem is described in terms of what the computer did to her, not what she did to her computer. It's the computer that needs to be fixed, instead of the user. When I showed her the "haveibeenpwned.com" website (part of my tips for securing computers), it showed her Tumblr password had been hacked. She swore she never created a Tumblr account -- that somebody or something must have done it for her. Except, I was there five years ago and watched her create it.

Another example is how GMail is deleting her emails for no reason, corrupting them, and changing the spelling of her words. She emails the way an impatient teenager texts -- all of us in the family know the misspellings are not GMail's fault. But I can't help her with this because she keeps her GMail inbox clean, deleting all her messages, leaving no evidence behind. She has only a vague description of the problem that I can't make sense of.

This last March, I tried something to resolve this. I configured her GMail to send a copy of all incoming messages to a new, duplicate account on my own email server. With evidence in hand, I would then be able solve what's going on with her GMail. I'd be able to show her which steps she took, which buttons she clicked on, and what caused the weirdness she's seeing.

Today, while the family was in a state of turkey-induced torpor, my mom brought up a problem with Twitter. She doesn't use Twitter, she doesn't have an account, but they keep sending tweets to her phone, about topics like Denzel Washington. And she said something about "peaches" I didn't understand.

This is how the problem descriptions always start, chaotic, with mutually exclusive possibilities. If you don't use Twitter, you don't have the Twitter app installed, so how are you getting Tweets? Over much gnashing of teeth, it comes out that she's getting emails from Twitter, not tweets, about Denzel Washington -- to someone named "Peaches Graham". Naturally, she can only describe these emails, because she's alre...

Modder puts Computer inside a Power Supply "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

When building a custom computer rig, most people put the SMPS power supply inside the computer case. [James] a.k.a [Aibohphobia] a.k.a [fearofpalindromes] turned it inside out, and built the STX160.0 a full-fledged gaming computer stuffed inside a ATX power supply enclosure. While Small Form Factor (SFF) computers are nothing new, his build packs a powerful punch in a small enclosure and is a great example of computer modding, hacker ingenuity and engineering. The finished computer uses a Mini-ITX form factor motherboard with Intel i5 6500T quad-core 2.2GHz processor, EVGA GTX 1060 SC graphics card, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 250GB SSD, WiFi card and two USB ports all powered from a 160 W AC-DC converter. Its external dimensions are the same as an ATX-EPS power supply at 150 L x 86 H x 230 D mm. The STX160.0 is mains utility powered and not from an external brick, which [James] feels would have been cheating.

For those who would like a quick, TL;DR pictorial review, head over to his photo album on Imgur first, to feast on pictures of the completed computer and its innards. But the Devil is in the details, so check out the forum thread for a ton of interesting build information, component sources, tricks and trivia. For example, to connect the graphics card to the motherboard, he used a M.2 to powered PCIe x4 adapter coupled with a flexible cable extender from a quaint company called Adex Electronics who still prefer to do business the old-fashioned way and whose website might remind you of the days when Netscape Navigator was the dominant browser.

As a benchmark, [James] posts that with the cover panel on, at full load (Prime95 Blend @ 2 threads and FurMark 1080p 4x AA) the CPU is around 65C with the CPU fan going at 1700RPM, and the GPU is at 64C at 48% fan speed. Fairly impressive for what could be passed off at first glance as a power supply.

How did the free sharing of scientific knowledge and culture become the worst crime our justice systems could think of? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

the-world-of-molecules-picture-id599244464

Corruption:Sci-Hub is starting to get judgments and censorship applied against it. Its noteworthy that not even murder or genocide is considered cause for such Internet censorship as is now being applied to Sci-Hub. How and when did the free sharing of scientific knowledge become the worst conceivable crime?

Science Magazine has a long feature titled Whos downloading pirated science papers? Everyone. and Science Magazine lays out in detail how everybody uses Sci-Hub; everybody enjoys the free and unfettered sharing of scientific knowledge. It goes further into depth on how sci-hub, the Pirate Bay of science papers, has been branded a huge criminal by all the previous cartels who held a lucrative monopoly on such publishing science papers.

This goes for Elsevier in particular, who charged scientists to publish papers and then charged everybody else to read them too. Most people would call them extortionists.

Theres an interesting observation to make here, though, and this is that courts are ordering Internet censorship an extremely grave reduction in liberty, normally unthinkable outside of wartime for one crime, and one crime only: the free sharing of knowledge and culture, which must apparently be stopped at any cost.

This is a measure so extreme, its not used for genocide, premeditated murder, or anything else in the crime catalog. There is but one crime that is so horrendous, such a grave crime against the whole of humanity, that it merits Internet censorship as ordered by would-be respectable judges:

The free sharing of scientific knowledge or popular culture. This is apparently the worst, and only, conceivable crime that merits this worst of prevention.

I need to ask how in the $ we arrived at this point. Then again, the answer might be right there in that sentence: Pounds Sterling, US Dollars, Japanese Yen, and Euros, handed under the table to government officials in exchange for lucrative distribution monopolies.

Ironically, this use of the copyright monopoly doesnt fall far from the original invention of copyright, as devised by Queen Mary I when she...

Apple discovers student interns illegally worked overtime in Chinese iPhone X factory "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Illegal student labor discovered at iPhone X plant, says Apple

The much anticipated Apples 10th-anniversary smartphone, iPhone X went on sale across the globe on November 3, with thousands of customers waiting to get their hands on the device. Also, the steep price of the smartphone has not deterred people from queuing up at Apple retail stores, which only indicates the huge demand for the iPhone X. To ensure that the massive delivery demand for the iPhone X is met, Apple has been working overtime wherein its recent promise delivery time frame has been reduced one to two weeks on all models of the iPhone X.

Now, Apple has been accused of violating local labor laws by depending on students working illegal overtime to build the iPhone X to catch up with demand after production delays, through its Chinese manufacturing partner Foxconn, which produces the devices in Zhengzhou, China, reports Financial Times.

The students working at the Foxconn plant, are a part of the school internship program of a three month work experience placement, run by Hon Hai Precision Co Ltd (Foxconn). They were routinely working 11 hours per day assembling the newest smartphone, in violation of local labor laws barring students from working more than 40 hours per week.

Foxconn said its internship programme was carried out in co-operation with local governments and a number of vocational schools in China.

An earlier report by the Financial Times cited six students who worked overtime at the plant were among a group of 3,000 students sent by Zhengzhou Urban Rail Transit School for an internship program in September. The students aged between 17-19, were being forced by their school to participate in the internship for three months to get work experience in order to graduate.

We are being forced by our school to work here, said Ms Yang, an 18-year-old who assembles 1,200 iPhone X cameras a day was quoted by FT. The work has nothing to do with our studies.

While the school declined to comment, both Apple and Foxconn acknowledged there were cases of student interns working overtime.

In a statement, Apple said: During the course of a recent audit, we discovered instances of student interns working overtime at a supplier facility in China. Weve confirmed the students worked voluntarily, were compensated and provided benefits, but they should not have been allowed to work overtime.

At this facility, student intern programs are short term and account for a very small percentage of the workforce. When we found that some students were allowed to work overtime, we took prompt action. A team of specialists are on site at th...

A Carpenter Winter "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

I had planned on re-watching all of Ingmar Bergmans films starting about right now (we all need cheering up when winter arrives, right?), but the Bergman box set has had its release pushed back two week, so Im here without any Bergman movies to watch.

So I got all of John Carpenters films instead, because that seemed like the most obvious substitution to me.

Join me for a trip back to the fun but scary 70s and 80s!

Im not really a Carpenter fan: Out of his entire oevre, I think theres perhaps two films of his that I can remember being impressed with at the time (beyond the oh, cool factor): The Thing and They Live.  But perhaps Im less of a snotty snob now than I was as a teenager, and Carpenter is awesome now?

To accompany these films, Ill be drinking beer I bought on my recent holiday to Germany and The Netherlands.

Helpers at the Nest May Allow Mother Birds to Lay Smaller Eggs "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

Cooperatively breeding birds and fish may have evolved the adaptive ability to reduce the size of their eggs when helpers are available to lighten the parental load, a new study suggests. The findings indicate that in some species, the social environment may influence female reproductive decisions even prior to the birth of offspring.

According to the research from the University of Cambridge, females in species such as the sociable weaver, superb fairy-wren and daffodil cichlid fish, tend to produce smaller eggs when help with rearing offspring is at hand compared to when parents are on their own.

The authors of the paper, which was published today in the journal PeerJ, looked at data from 12 studies on 10 species of cooperatively breeding vertebrates in order to analyse the relationship between the number of helpers present and egg size. The reduction in egg size in relation to helper availability was stronger in species where mothers also reduce the energy they put into post-natal care when other members of the social group are available to help protect, incubate and feed offspring after laying.

The findings suggest that breeding females, by laying smaller, less energy-consuming eggs and providing less food to offspring at the nest, may conserve energy to increase their own chances of survival to the next year or to have the next set of offspring sooner. If helpers compensate for the reduced investment into the current offspring, this could lead to females producing more offspring in total over the course of their lifetimes.

The relationship between egg size and helper number in cooperative breeders: a meta-analysis across species (open, DOI: 10.7717/peerj.4028) (DX)

Samsung will reportedly showcase Galaxy S9, S9+ at CES before March 2018 launch "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Samsung could unveil the Galaxy S9, S9+ early next year in January at CES 2018

We all are aware that Samsung has already started working on its next years premium flagships, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. While this year saw Samsung release its S8 line-up, the tech giants rival Apple too released the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. Though Apples premium iPhone X has been the talk of the town since its release this month, Samsung is doing everything possible to see that its next generation S9 flagships steal the thunder.

According to Evan Blass of VentureBeat, famous as tipster @evleaks on Twitter, claims that Samsung will be announcing the new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next year, which is ahead of the companys usual yearly appearance that normally happens either in late February or March. In the past, Samsung revealed the Galaxy S8 for the first time in March 2017 at their unpacked event. However, this time the company is expected to reveal the devices during the CES event in January and start selling them in March.

Going by Blasss reports, Samsung Galaxy S9 is reportedly codenamed Star 1 with model number SM-G960 and the Galaxy S9+ is said to be codenamed Star 2 that carries the model number SM-G965. These smartphones are expected to feature Super AMOLED Infinity display, similar to those seen on their predecessors, Galaxy S8 and S8+, 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, respectively. The smartphones will come in two variants, one powered by Qualcomms upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC and Samsungs latest Exynos 9810 chipset.

The Galaxy S9+ could offer a dual rear camera and 6GB of RAM, whereas Galaxy S9 might come with a single rear camera and 4GB of RAM. Both smartphones are expected to come with 64GB of in-built internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card and could retain the 3.5mm audio jack. The new Samsung Galaxy S-Series models are also rumored to have vertically-aligned elements on the back, including a fingerprint scanner on the bottom. Also, the devices could sport AKG stereo speakers and support backwards-compatibility with the DeX docking station.

PPPL Scientists Deliver New High-Resolution Diagnostic To National Laser Facility "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have built and delivered a high-resolution X-ray spectrometer for the largest and most powerful laser facility in the world. The diagnostic, installed on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the DOE's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will analyze and record data from high-energy density experiments created by firing NIF's 192 lasers at tiny pellets of fuel. Such experiments are relevant to projects that include the U.S. Stockpile Stewardship Program, which maintains the U.S. nuclear deterrent without full-scale testing, and to inertial confinement fusion, an alternative to the magnetic confinement fusion that PPPL studies.

PPPL has used spectrometers for decades to analyze the electromagnetic spectrum of plasma, the hot fourth state of matter in which electrons have separated from atomic nuclei, inside doughnut-shaped fusion devices known as tokamaks.

These devices heat the particles and confine them in magnetic fields, causing the nuclei to fuse and produce fusion energy. By contrast, NIF's high-powered lasers cause fusion by heating the exterior of the fuel pellet. As the exterior vaporizes, pressure extends inward towards the pellet's core, crushing hydrogen atoms together until they fuse and release their energy.

NIF tested and confirmed that the spectrometer was operating as expected on September 28. During the experiment, the device accurately measured the electron temperature and density of a fuel capsule during the fusion process.

"Measuring these conditions is key to achieving ignition of a self-sustaining fusion process on NIF," said PPPL physicist Lan Gao, who helped design and build the device. "Everything worked out very nicely. The signal level we got was just like what we predicted."

Retrotechtacular: How To Repair A Steam Locomotive "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Steam locomotives, as a technological product of the 19th century, are not what you would imagine as fragile machines. The engineering involved is not inconsequential, there is little about them that is in any way flimsy. They need to be made in this way, because the huge energy transfer required to move a typical train would destroy lesser construction. It would however be foolish to imagine a locomotive as indestructible, placing that kind of constant strain on even the heaviest of engineering is likely to cause wear, or component failure.

A typical railway company in the steam age would therefore maintain a repair facility in which locomotives would be overhauled on a regular basis, and we are lucky enough to have a 1930s film of one for you today courtesy of the British London Midland and Scottish railway. In it we follow one locomotive from first inspection through complete dismantling, lifting of the frame from the wheels, detaching of the boiler, inspection of parts, replacement, and repair, to final reassembly.

We see steps in detail such as the set-up of a steam engines valve gear, and it is impressed upon us how much the factory runs on a tight time schedule. Each activity fits within its own time window, and like a modern car factory all the parts are brought to the locomotive at their allotted times. When the completed locomotive is ready to leave the factory it is taken to the paint shop to emerge almost as a new machine, ready for what seems like a short service life for a locomotive, a mere 130 thousand miles.

The video, which weve placed below the break, is a fascinating glimpse into the world of a steam locomotive servicing facility. Most Hackaday readers will never strip down a locomotive, but that does not stop many of them from having some interest in the process. Indeed, keen viewers may wish to compare this film with A Study in Steel, another film from the LMS railway showing the construction of a locomotive.

LMS Jubilee class number 5605, Cyprus, the featured locomotive in this film, was built in 1935, and eventually scrapped in 1964 as part of the phasing out of steam traction on British railways.

Elon Musk warns theres only a 5 to 10% chance that artificial intelligence wont kill us all "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Artificial Intelligence will destroy humankind, cautions Elon Musk

Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, who has voiced his fears time and again regarding artificial intelligence (AI) being a threat to humanity, warned that we only have a 5 to 10% chance of stopping killers robots from destroying humankind, in a recent talk with his employees at his neuro-technology company, Neuralink Inc., according to Rolling Stone.

According to Musk who is famous for his futuristic claims, said that people have almost no chance to create a completely safe AI. He claimed that the chances of making AI safe is only 5-10%, but the probability of creating dangerous robots increases every year. Musk like many of his peers is supporting serious regulation of AI, and as soon as possible.

Musks latest claims follow a warning he made in July that regulation of AI is required because its a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.

He said, Normally the way regulations are set up is when a bunch of bad things happen, theres a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry.

In 2014, Musk had predicted AI was on the verge of something seriously dangerous. Last year, he declared humans had basically lost the battle against AI already, and that the only way to beat them was to join them.

Under any rate of advancement in AI, we will be left behind by a lot, Musk said. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five-year timeframe. Ten years at most. The benign situation with ultra-intelligent AI is that we would be so far below in intelligence wed be like a pet or a house cat.

In order to combat this, Musk proposed that we need to be prepared by developing our natural intelligence to the next level. Their startup Neuralink is working on a project neural lace, wherein tiny electrodes would be implanted into the brain which in turn would manage functions like memory, with the eventual possibility of uploading and downloading thoughts on a computer. The ultimate goal to use this technology is to enhance memory function and provide more direct interaction between human and computer interfaces or give humans added artificial intelligence.

In order to fully understand the AI risks, governments must have a better understanding of AI technologys rapid evolution, he said. Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be By the time we are reactive in AI regulation, itll be too late, he told at the summer conference of the National Governors Association in Rhode Island.

Copyright Holders Want ISPs to Police Pirate Sites and Issue Warnings "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Online piracy is a worldwide phenomenon and increasingly it ends up on the desks of lawmakers everywhere.

Frustrated by the ever-evolving piracy landscape, copyright holders are calling on local authorities to help out.

This is also the case in South Africa at the moment, where the Government is finalizing a new Cybercrimes and Cybersecurity Bill.

Responding to a call for comments, anti-piracy group SAFACT, film producers, and local broadcaster M-Net seized the opportunity to weigh in with some suggestions. Writing to the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, they ask for measures to make it easier to block pirate sites and warn copyright infringers.

A balanced approach to address the massive copyright infringement on the Internet is necessary, they say.

On the site-blocking front, the copyright holder representatives suggest an EU-style amendment that would allow for injunctions against ISPs to bar access to pirate sites.

It is suggested that South Africa should consider adopting technology-neutral no fault enforcement legislation that would enable intermediaries to take action against online infringements, in line with Article 8.3 of the EU Copyright Directive (2001/29/EC), which addresses copyright infringement through site blocking, it reads.

Request and response (via Business Tech)

In addition, ISPs should also be obliged to take further measures to deter piracy. New legislation should require providers to police unauthorized file-sharing and streaming sites, and warn subscribers who are caught pirating.

Obligations should be imposed on ISPs to co-operate with rights-holders and Government to police illegal filesharing or streaming websites and to issue warnings to end-users identified as engaging in illegal file-sharing and to block infringing content, the rightsholders say.

The demands were made public by the Department recently, which also included an official response from the Government. While the suggestions are not dismissed based on their content, they dont fit the purpose of the legislation.

Shards, Axis Ratios and Interstellar Objects "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

It being the day after the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States, I hadnt planned a post, but a few more things have cropped up about Oumuamua that I can quickly tuck in here. Now that Ive learned how to pronounce it (oh MOO-uh MOO-uh), it doesnt seem nearly as intimidating its the lineup of vowels that trips up the unwary. On the other hand, Jim Benford suggested on Wednesday that we avoid the vowels altogether and call this thing the Shard.

Heres the photo Jim sent of the Shard, a 95-story London skyscraper sometimes called The Shard of Glass. Its 309.7 metres high, the tallest building in the United Kingdom, featuring 11,000 panes of glass with a total surface area of 56,000 square metres. What draws Jims attention is the 6 to 1 aspect ratio, with Oumuamuas thought to be 10 to 1. Jim might also have referenced Londons BT Tower (8 to 1), but what the Guinness Book of World Records calls the most slender tower turns out to be the i360 observation tower in Brighton, at a whopping 41 to 1.

With Oumuamua, though, we now have to ask whether the 10 to 1 ratio is actually correct, as Jason Wright noted in a recent post. The problem here is that, unlike the situation with Boyajians Star, we have a small dataset to work with, and according to Wright (Penn State), researchers are getting different aspect ratios, ranging all the way from the aforementioned 10 to 1 down to a relatively ordinary 3 to 1.

If the latter is the case, the interstellar object may look something more like Haumea than the Shard. Ill need to see a lot more data and hard, critical analysis of the anomalies in Oumuamua before I get interested in the SETI angle at the level I am for Tabbys Star, adds Wright.

Greg Laughlin (UC-Santa Cruz) also weighed in on Oumuamua with a new paper (citation below) and accompanying article in Scientific American. Laughlin dubs our visitor exhilaratingly bizarre and goes on to describe its unu...

Study Finds Different Types of Alcohol Can Determine Different Moods "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Spirits may make you feel angry, sexy or tearful, while red wine or beer may make you feel relaxed, say researchers.

They questioned nearly 30,000 people aged 18-34 from 21 different countries for the study in the journal BMJ Open.

All the respondents drank beer, wine and spirits, and many said each type of alcohol had a different effect on them.

While having a few drinks can be enjoyable, researchers hope their findings will help highlight the dangers of dependent drinking.

We have to discuss this, if only because it may explain Ethanol-Fueled's posts.

Double check if your Bitcoin/Ethereum wallet is exposed online, crooks are running massive Internet scans "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Security experts are observing numerous massive scans going on for Bitcoin and Ethereum wallets in order to steal their funds.

The continuing increase of both Bitcoin and Ethereum price is attracting crooks  that are spending a lot of efforts in the attempt to steal funds stored in the wallets used for these two cryptocurrencies.

Security researchers worldwide are observing an intensification of mass Internet scanning campaigns thanks the honeypots they set up to monitor the online threats.

The security expert Didier Stevens observed a significant scanning activity over the weekend, just two days before Bitcoin price jumped from $7,000 to over $8,000 (Consider that the Bitcoins price was roughly $200 just two years ago).

The researcher observed a huge number of requests to his honeypot to retrieve Bitcoin wallet files:
wallet Copy.dat
wallet.dat
wallet.dat.1
wallet.dat.zip
wallet.tar
wallet.tar.gz
wallet.zip
wallet_backup.dat
wallet_backup.dat.1
wallet_backup.dat.zip
wallet_backup.zip
Accessing to such archives will allow cyber criminals to steal the victims funds.

Ive seen a couple of such requests a couple of years ago, but its the first time I see that many, Stevens wrote in a short post on the SANS Institute. The first time I observed this was late 2013, in the middle of the first big BTC price rally.

Name+DOB+SSN=FAFSA Data Gold Mine "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

KrebsOnSecurity has sought to call attention to online services which expose sensitive consumer data if the user knows a handful of static details about a person that are broadly for sale in the cybercrime underground, such as name, date of birth, and Social Security Number. Perhaps the most eye-opening example of this is on display at fafsa.ed.gov, the Web site set up by the U.S. Department of Education for anyone interested in applying for federal student financial aid.

Short for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA is an extremely lengthy and detailed form required at all colleges that accept and award federal aid to students.

Visitors to the login page for FAFSA have two options: Enter either the students FSA ID and password, or choose enter the students information. Selecting the latter brings up a prompt to enter the students first and last name, followed by their date of birth and Social Security Number.

Anyone who successfully supplies that information on a student who has applied for financial aid through FAFSA then gets to see a virtual colonoscopy of personal information on that individual and their familys finances including almost 200 different data elements.

The information returned includes all of these data fields:

1. Students Last Name:
2. Students First Name:
3. Students Middle Initial:
4. Students Permanent Mailing Address:
5. Students Permanent City:
6. Students Permanent State:
7. Students Permanent ZIP Code:
8. Students Social Security Number:
9. Students Date of Birth:
10. Students Telephone Number:
11. Students Drivers License Number:
12. Students Drivers License State:
13. Students E-mail Address:
14. Students Citizenship Status:
15. Students Alien Registration Number:
16. Students Marital Status:
17. Students Marital Status Date:
18. Students State of Legal Residence:
19. Was Student a Legal Resident Before January 1, 2012?
20. Students Legal Residence Date:
21. Is the Student Male or Female?
22. Register Student With Selective Service System?

No Evidence of Abnormal Osteoarthritis Found in Dolly the Sheep "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The world's most famous sheep didn't experience accelerated aging due to cloning, University of Nottingham researchers report:

But new X-rays of Dolly's skeleton and those of other cloned sheep and Dolly's naturally conceived daughter Bonnie indicate that the world's first cloned mammal had the joints of normal sheep of her age. Just like other sheep, Dolly had a little bit of arthritis in her hips, knees and elbows [open, DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15902-8] [DX], developmental biologist Kevin Sinclair of the University of Nottingham in England and colleagues report November 23 in Scientific Reports.

The researchers decided to reexamine Dolly's remains after finding that her cloned "sisters" have aged normally and didn't have massive arthritis (SN: 8/20/16, p. 6). No formal records of Dolly's original arthritis exams were kept, so Sinclair and colleagues got Dolly and Bonnie's skeletons and those of two other cloned sheep, Megan and Morag, from the National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh. Megan and Bonnie were both older than Dolly at the time of their deaths and had more bone damage than Dolly did. Morag died younger and had less damage.

How many times has the story of Dolly's death at the ripe age of 6 (with a supposed genetic starting age of 6 due to shorter telomeres) been used as a bludgeon against cloning?

A Giant Magellan Telescope Needs Giant Mirrors "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Giant Magellan Telescope doesnt seem so giant in the renderings, until you see how the mirrors are made.

The telescope will require seven total mirrors each 27 feet (8.4 meters) in diameter for a total combined diameter of 24.5 meters. Half of an Olympic size pools length. A little over four times the diameter of the James Webb Space Telescope.

According to the website, the mirrors are cast at the University of Arizona mirror lab and take four years each to make. Theyre made from blocks of Japanese glass laid out in a giant oven. The whole process of casting the glass takes a year, from laying it out to the months of cooling, its a painstaking process.

Once the cooling is done theres another three years of polishing to get the mirror just right. If youve ever had to set up a metal block for precision machining on a mill, you might have an idea of why this takes so long. Especially if you make that block a few tons of glass and the surface has to be ground to micron tolerances. A lot of clever engineering went into this, including, no joke, a custom grinding tool full of silly putty. Though, at its core its not much different from smaller lens making processes.

The telescope is expected to be finished in 2024, for more information on the mirror process theres a nice article here.

Bacteria As Pacemaker For The Intestine "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

Spontaneous contractions of the digestive tract play an important role in almost all animals, and ensure healthy bowel functions. From simple invertebrates to humans, there are consistently similar patterns of movement, through which rhythmic contractions of the muscles facilitate the transport and mixing of the bowel contents.

These contractions, known as peristalsis, are essential for the digestive process. With various diseases of the digestive tract, such as severe inflammatory bowel diseases in humans, there are disruptions to the normal peristalsis.

To date, very little research has explored the factors underlying the control of these contractions. Now, for the first time, a research team from the Cell and Developmental Biology (Bosch AG) working group at the Zoological Institute at Kiel University (CAU) has been able to prove that the bacterial colonisation of the intestine plays an important role in controlling peristaltic functions.

The scientists published their results yesterday - derived from the example of freshwater polyps Hydra - in the latest issue of Scientific Reports.

Andrea P. Murillo-Rincn, Alexander Klimovich, Eileen Pemller, Jan Taubenheim, Benedikt Mortzfeld, Ren Augustin & Thomas C.G.

Firefox will notify users who visit sites that suffered a data breach "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Mozilla developer revealed the Firefox browser will soon include a new feature to notify users who visit sites that suffered a data breach

Firefox browser is going to introduce a new security feature to make the users experience online more secure, it will warn users if they visit websites that have experienced data breaches.

The news was revealed by the Mozilla developer Nihanth Subramany and it was confirmed by the presence of a recently-released GitHub repo titled Breach Alerts Prototype.

This is an extension that Im going to be using as a vehicle for prototyping basic UI and interaction flow for an upcoming feature in Firefox that notifies users when their credentials have possibly been leaked or stolen in a data breach. states the description published on GitHub.

The developer has teamed with haveibeenpwned.com as data source related for data breaches.

The new feature is still not complete, the developer explained that in its current state it is in no way meant to represent actual production code, or how the feature will work or look like when it ships.

He also listed the following basic goals for the new security feature:

  1. Inform users about data breaches through the Firefox UI for example, a notification when they visit a site (or maybe when they focus a form on a login page) known to have recently been breached.
  2. Expose documentation/educational information about data breaches in the Firefox UI for example, a Learn more link in the notification mentioned above leading to a support page.
  3. Offer a way for interested users to learn about and opt into a service that notifies them (e.g. via email) when they may be affected by breaches in the future.

FireFox data breach notification service

The developer also approached privacy concerns since the users would need to supply an email address to receive security notifications.

The third goal brings up some privacy concerns, since users would need to supply an email address to receive notifications. Who is the custodian of this data? Can w...

Transhumanism And The Future Of Humanity: 7 Ways The World Will Change By 2030 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Innovation Group looked at three fundamental pillars of humanity and how they will evolve over the coming 1015 years: our bodies, our thought, and our behavior. After identifying the driving forces that will transform these fundamental pillars, we extracted key themes emerging from their convergence. Ultimately our goal was to determine the ways in which the changing nature of humanity and transhumanism would affect individuals, society, businesses, and government.

A few of the trends that emerged from this study include the following seven trends. We hope they will spark discussion and innovation at your organizations.


Companies today are strategizing about future investments and technologies such as artificial intelligence, the internet of things, or growth around new business models. While many of these trends will make for solid investments for the next 510 years, fewer companies are considering the revolutionary convergence of disparate trends pulled from technology, behavioral and societal changes, and medical advances to understand how  they will converge to transform society.  This transformation will be messy, complex, and sometimes scary, but signals already point to a future of humanity that will blur our identities into transhumanism.

Molecules From Deep Fat Frying May Have a Cooling Effect on the Climate "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Deep fat fryers may help form cooling clouds

Fatty acids released into the air from cooking may contribute to the formation of clouds that cool the climate, say scientists. Fatty acid molecules comprise about 10% of fine particulates over London, and such particles help seed clouds. But researchers dismiss the idea that cooking fats could be used as a geo-engineering tool to reduce warming. Instead, the research is designed to help reduce uncertainties about the role of cooking fats on climate.

Researchers believe the fatty molecules arrange themselves into complex 3-D structures in atmospheric droplets. These aerosols persist for longer than normal and can seed the formation of clouds which experts say can have a cooling effect on the climate. The authors say the study will shed new light on the long term role of aerosols on temperatures. Atmospheric aerosols are one of the areas of climate science where there are considerable uncertainties.

Scientists have warned against using stratospheric aerosol injection to attempt to geoengineer the climate:

Blasting aerosols into the atmosphere to fight climate change could have the unfortunate side effect of creating drought and more hurricanes, according to new research.

Some scientists believe that sending a plane to spray sulfate aerosols into the sky will help cool down the Earth. But drastic moves might lead to unintended consequences, according to scientists who ran a model to see how spraying the sulfate would affect our climate. The model simulates how an annual spray of aerosols in both hemispheres would affect the climate between 2020 and 2070 and it found that there could be negative consequences in both regions. The results were published today in the journal Nature Communications [open, DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01606-0] [DX].

Software projects are a popular way of funding and organizing software development. Projects are funded on a case-by-case basis on the basis of benefits projected in a business case. They are organized in the form of one or more temporary teams whose members have durable reporting lines outside the project organization. They are staffed from a pool of talent whose members are considered fungible within lines of specialization. And usually, a software project teams job is to build or enhance some system or application and move on.

Racing Simulator Built From Scrapheap Finds "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Paradise means something different for everyone, it could be a sitting by a fire on a rainy night or lying on a sun-kissed beach. But for us, and makers like [liltreat4you], its a well stocked scrap pile out behind the house. After buying a racing wheel and pedals for his Xbox, he took a trip out to his little slice of paradise and found nearly all the hardware he needed to build a professional looking race simulator. According to his breakdown, most of the money he spent on this build ended up going into that sweet red paint job and the speed-enhancing stickers.

Everything the light touches is our kingdom.

Not all of us are as lucky as [liltreat4you], and we probably wont just happen upon a drivers seat out of a Mazda, or a bunch of perfectly bent metal pipes from an old trampoline out on the back forty. But trolling Craigslist or cruising around for flea markets can still get you parts like these for cheap, so try not to be too discouraged if your backyard isnt quite as well stocked.

Once he had the metal pipes and seat from the car, the rest of the build came together pretty quickly. After building an oval out of his salvaged pipes, he attached the seat and the arms that would eventually hold the steering wheel and display. A plate was also added at the bottom for the pedals to sit on. By using long bolts, [liltreat4you] was even able to add a degree of adjus...

Swiss Copyright Law Proposals: Good News for Pirates, Bad For Pirate Sites "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

While Switzerland sits geographically in the heart of Europe, the country is not part of the European Union, meaning that its copyright laws are often out of touch with those of the countries encircling it.

For years this has meant heavy criticism from the United States, whose trade representative has put Switzerland on the Watch List, citing weaknesses in the countrys ability to curb online copyright infringement.

The decision to place Switzerland on the Watch List this year is premised on U.S. concerns regarding specific difficulties in Switzerlands system of online copyright protection and enforcement, the USTR wrote in 2016.

Things didnt improve in 2017. Referencing the so-called Logistep Decision, which found that collecting infringers IP addresses is unlawful, the USTR said that Switzerland had effectively deprived copyright holders of the means to enforce their rights online.

All of this criticism hasnt fallen on deaf ears. For the past several years, Switzerland has been deeply involved in consultations that aim to shape future copyright law. Negotiations have been prolonged, however, with the Federal Council aiming to improve the situation for creators without impairing the position of consumers.

A new draft compromise tabled Wednesday is somewhat of a mixed bag, one that is unlikely to please the United States overall but could prove reasonably acceptable to the public.

First of all, people will still be able to pirate as much copyrighted material as they like, as long as that content is consumed privately and does not include videogames or software, which are excluded. Any supposed losses accrued by the entertainment industries will be compensated via a compulsory tax of 13 Swiss francs ($13), levied on media playback devices including phones and tablets.

This freedom only applies to downloading and streaming, meaning that any uploading (distribution) is explicitly ruled out. So, while grabbing some streaming content via a pirate Kodi addon is just fine, using BitTorrent to achieve the same is ruled out.

Indeed, rightsholders will be able to capture IP addresses of suspected infringers in order to file a criminal complaint with authorities. That being said, there will no system of warning notices targeting file-sharers....

The Dragon Line "IndyWatch Feed Tech"




This man has passed, but here we finally find the true source for the revelations of the writers who popularized the Grail legacy. If you are not already familiar with a substantial body of related materials, this work is likely fabulous.

It is very important. a friend recently confirmed his spirit is Draconian or alien.  The dragon linage could well be derived from this group of spirits who act as guides on Earth,  That a genetic trace exists is interesting and that ten percent of Europeans are carriers is important and suggestive of the neanderthal lineage as well. 

A past history of established high office is irrelevant and counter productive as it speaks more to the past than the future which will be nothing like the past. That he clearly understood this is bracing.

My own gathering of new knowledge typically follows the dragon archetype as described herein.

An important insight here.  Transitioning to elvehood is plausible for humanity by learning how to still the mind and releasing the inner sun and using it to flood the body with 'light'.  The newly attained elf is then able to heal others as well as heal himself.  Doing that it is no trick to grow pointy ears. 

Thus an advanced healer will be naturally free of excess fat and glow with a soft white or blue light and have optional pointy ears.

That happens to be the prime purpose of meditation practice besides astral movement ..

China running chemical warfare with steady supply of deadly opioid chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Tech"




 
As i have posted many times, it is utterly easy to end all this with the simple step of legalizing all drugs and actively managing  all addictions.  It starts with shifting the monetary aspect back to the government.  Get over it and do it as has been done elsewhere.

It then stops been a criminal's or country's cash cow.
 
I do think that the rapidly rising opiod crisis will do two things.  It will makes all illegally sourced drugs very dangerous due to deliberate adulteration.  It will simply kill of the majority of chronic addicts.  These individuals are unlikely to possess the skills necessary to protect themselves and are buying in small random lots anyway.
 
Even marijuana has turned up laced with this crap.  Obviously the pushers are losing so many customers, they need new victims...

Bedsides, this is something no government can really control however dictatorial they may be.  It all can be made in a private lab.

Up Tempo with Trump Counter Revolution "IndyWatch Feed Tech"




This will be an unusual report today and it is timely.  I am not including any of the sources out there as they are just snippets of plausible truth and without a central narrative are simply too premature.

Conjecture1:   Trump empowered General Flynn who formerly led the Marines to prepare for a move on the CIA shortly after he entered the white house.  At the same time he also ordered Jeff Sessions to be ready to move on elements within the FBI.  These were obvious and necessary actions while he ran cover for this.

This work required intelligence gathering, identification of key loyalists and serious problem individuals.

Conjecture 2:    It was also determined that they had to take down the clearly criminal aspect of CIA operations.  This particularly meant the drug industry activities which had been carried on for decades and were no secret to anyone at all.

I did expect a take down to be attempted but lacked insight as to focus and likely efficiency. What we are picking up looks to be both surgical and profoundly strategic and does not initially disturb operations significantly.

If we are reading this right, they moved on the CIA this past Saturday with an actual Marine battle group in support to discourage anything but abject compliance. Lots of obvious drama but it was surely led by military intelligence who took a large trove of electronic data and computers and perhaps documents as well. This allowed rapid processing and the immediate use of tactical information.  Almost within hours we heard of CIA drug labs in Afghanistan been hit which implies forces on standby waiting for the data.

Depopulation Vaccine: Scientific Paper Exposes Infertility Drugs Being Used in Tetanus Vaccines in Kenya "IndyWatch Feed Tech"



Ouch.  What are these people thinking to unilaterally do this?  And where is the public outrage as well?

That it became known tells us suspicion was there.  It must have actually been effective.

Inasmuch as we have a NWO meme supporting depopulation for the true believers, we see the re emergence of 1920's eugenics here.  The Nazis are still out there and remain true believers.  Our best defense is continous disclosure.

Depopulation Vaccine: Scientific Paper Exposes Infertility Drugs Being Used in Tetanus Vaccines in Kenya


http://humansarefree.com/2017/11/depopulation-vaccine-scientific-paper.html

A bombshell paper has just exposed the World Health Organizations attempts to lessen populations in Africa, as has been openly detailed as part of the NWO agenda for many years now.


The abstract, titled HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World, written by lead author, John W. Oller and Christopher A. Shaw, and published at Scientific Research, states that the family planning drugs the WHO was developing in the 1970s have been added to the tetanus vaccine widely given throughout Kenya and other African countries. By the WHOs admission, this vaccine could have been given in as many as 18 countries.

Meadows Beat Out Shrubs When It Comes To Storing Carbon "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

Excess carbon dioxide, emitted by burning fossil fuels like coal and petroleum, is one of the most important factors in driving global warming. While the world is focused on controlling global warming by limiting these emissions, less attention has been paid to the capacity of vegetation and soils to take up and store carbon.

One of the most popular approaches to carbon storage is protecting tropical rainforests. If a rainforest is cut down, the carbon stored in the trunks and leaves will be released to the atmosphere. But plants in alpine communities in Norway also have a role to play in storingor releasingcarbon dioxide.

"We don't think about how much carbon is actually stored right in our own backyard," says Mia Vedel Srensen, a PhD candidate at NTNU's Department of Biology who is studying carbon storage in shrub vegetation in the Dovre mountains, in mid-Norway.

Srensen compared three types of vegetation that are typical of the Norwegian mountains:

  • Shrubs (willows)
  • Heath (crowberry and heather)
  • Meadow

"I wanted to figure out how much carbon these three vegetation types store and release. My hypothesis was that shrubs store more carbon than heath and meadow vegetation because shrubs have more biomass, and thus have higher rates of photosynthesis," she said.

But it turned out to be the opposite: Shrubs, even though they are tallest, actually store the least carbon.

"It surprised me that meadows actually store a lot more carbon than shrubs. The carbon in meadows is stored mostly below the ground, next to the roots," she said

The amount of carbon stored in heath vegetation is greater than in shrub vegetation, but less than in meadows, she said.

Self-Replicating Malware exploits MS Office Built-In feature "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

An Italian researcher from the security firm InTheCyber devised an attack technique to create self-replicating malware hidden in MS Word documents.

A few weeks ago, a security researcher reported a flaw that affects all versions of Microsoft Office that could be exploited by attackers to spread macro-based self-replicating malware.

Microsoft promptly implemented a security mechanism in MS Office that prevents such kind of attacks.

Now the researcher from the security firm InTheCyber Lino Antonio Buono has found has devised an attack technique to bypass the security control implemented by Microsoft and create self-replicating malware hidden in MS Word documents.

Buono reported the flaw to Microsoft in October, but unfortunately, the tech giant doesnt consider the issue a security vulnerability. Microsoft explained that the feature exploited by the Italian researcher was implemented to work exactly in this way.

The worst news is that crooks are already exploiting the same attack vector devised by Buono.

A couple of days ago, malware researchers from Trend Micro detailed a recently discovered macro-based self-replicating ransomware dubbed qkG that exploits the same MS office feature used by Buono in his attack technique.

Further scrutiny into qkG also shows it to be more of an experimental project or a proof of concept (PoC) rather than a malware actively used in the wild. This, however, doesnt make qkG less of a threat. As the qkG samples demonstrated, its behaviors and techniques can be fine-tuned by its developer or other threat actors. states the analysis published by Trend Micro.

When we first saw samples of it in VirusTotal last November 12, for instance, it didnt have a Bitcoin address yet. It had one only two days later, along with a routine that encrypts a document on a specific day and time. The next day, we saw a qkG sample with a different behavior (viz., not encrypting documents with a specific file name format).

The qkG ransomware relies on the Auto Close VBA macro technique to execute malicious macro when victim closes the document.

Although the first variant of the qkG ransomware did include a Bitcoin address, the latest sample analyzed by Trend Micro includes it and demands $300 in BTC.

Experts observed that the Bitcoin address...

Underwater Explosion Detected in the Vicinity of Missing Argentine Submarine "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

San Juan submarine: 'Explosion' detected in hunt for Argentine vessel

The Argentine navy says an event consistent with an explosion was recorded near where a submarine disappeared last week with 44 crew on board. An "abnormal, singular, short, violent, non-nuclear event" had been detected in the south Atlantic, a spokesman said. The information came from an Austria-based anti-nuclear test watchdog, Capt Balbi said. It follows a report of a loud noise in the same area.

The ARA San Juan disappeared last Wednesday. More than a dozen countries including Russia and the US have sent assistance.

The new information was provided to the Argentine navy on Thursday by the Vienna-based Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), Capt Balbi said. In a statement, the CTBTO said two of its hydro-acoustic stations had detected a signal from an "underwater impulsive event".

Advanced cyber attack hits Saudi Arabia to disrupt government computers "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Saudi Arabia announced to have detected an advanced cyber attack targeting the kingdom with the intent to disrupt government computers.

On Monday, Saudi authorities announced to have detected an advanced cyber attack targeting the kingdom. According to the experts at the Saudi National Cyber Security Centre, the attackers aimed to disrupt government computers.

The attackers leveraged the Powershell, but at the time of writing Government experts it did not comment on the source of the attack.

PowerShell is extremely powerful and that attackers are increasingly using it in their attack methods. PowerShell is a default package that comes with Microsoft Windows OS and hence it is readily available on the victim machines to exploit.

Powershell is Predominantly used as a downloader

The most prominent use of PowerShell, that is observed in the attacks in-the-wild, is to download the malicious file from the remote locations to the victim machine and execute it using commands like Start-ProcessInvoke-Item OR Invoke-Expression (-IEX) file OR downloading the content of the remote file directly into the memory of the victim machine and execute it from there.

Back to the attacks that hit Saudi computers, the NCSC speculates the involvement of an APT that used spear phishing attacks to infiltrate computers in the Kingdom.

The NCSC has detected a new Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) that is targeting Saudi Arabia, the agency said in a statement.

Saudi Arabia was targeted several times by APT, the most clamorous attack was conducted with the Shamoon wiper in 2012 against computers in the Saudi energy sector in 2012.

Computers at Saudi Aramco, one of the worlds biggest oil companies, was disrupted by Shamoon in what is believed to be the countrys worst cyber attack yet.

In the attack against Saudi Aramco Shamoon wipe data on over 30,000 computers and rewrite the hard drive MBR (Master Boot Record) with an image of a burning US flag.

The first team that discovered the malware was Kaspersky Lab that had analyzed some instances of the threat linked to the wiper agent due to the presence of a module of a string with a name that includes wiper as part of it.

He then goes into detail on each point and concludes that not only does everyone involved hate the system, but that it is causing actual harm to society.

Bringing MATLAB to a Vacuum Near You "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The essence of hacking is modifying something to do a different function. Many of us learned as kids, though, that turning the family TV into an oscilloscope often got you into trouble.

These days, TVs are flat and dont have high voltage inside, but theres always the family robot, often known as a Roomba. Besides providing feline transportation, these little pancake-shaped robots also clean floors.

If you dont want to evict the cat and still get a robust domestic robot platform for experimentation, about $200 will get you a Roomba made to be hacked the iRobot Create 2. [Gstatum] has a tutorial for using a Raspberry Pi and MATLAB to get one quickly running and even doing basic object recognition using the Pis camera.

The code even interfaces with Twitter. The impressive part is the code fits on about a page. This isnt, however, completely autonomous. It uses a connected phones sensors so that the phones orientation controls the robots motion, but the robot does use sensors to prevent driving into walls or falling off a cliff. It also can detect being picked up and uses the Pis camera to detect a green flag.

Theres a 3D printed bracket for the Pi case and the camera but unfortunately we didnt see the design files for it. However, it is noted it is optional and it would be easy to modify a bracket off, say, Thingiverse, or use a different bracket meant for the same purpos...

Why Nuclear Power Professionals Are Serious About Joking Around - Facts So Romantic "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


The Summer Games events often have a dark humor to themthey play around with nuclear disaster scenarios in ways outsiders might find jarring.Photograph by Stephen P. Weaver / Wikicommons

In August 2013, Finlands young nuclear professionals, under 35-years-old, met up for the Summer Games in Mikkeli municipality, put on by the Finnish Nuclear Societys Young Generation Group. Launched in 1998, the organization helps people interested in nuclear fields network. As usual, the plan was to escape office life, eat, drink, use the sauna, and bond through fun competitions outdoors. The Summer Games events often have a dark humor to themthey play around with nuclear disaster scenarios in ways outsiders might find jarring. Yet this edgy outdoor sporting is a powerful way of raising workforce morale. Its an aspect of a culture that may, from afar, seem to admire only cold, sterile rationality.

Part of what fascinates me as an anthropologist is the way nuclear experts live their lives. After living among them in Finland for almost three years, I found how they communicated in these gamesusing satire, jokes, and ironysurprising. In past years games, they pretended to be emergency responders, spraying Super Soaker water guns at a beach

Male Dolphins Observed "Gifting" Sponges to Females in Order to Mate "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Male Australian humpback dolphins have been observed presenting sponges to female dolphins:

Researchers from The University of Western Australia have captured a rare sexual display: evidence of male humpback dolphins presenting females with large marine sponges in an apparent effort to mate.

Scientists from UWA's School of Biological Sciences, the University of Zurich and Murdoch University conducted a decade of boat-based research on coastal dolphins across north-western Australia.

They documented adult male Australian humpback dolphins presenting large marine sponges to females, as well as performing visual and acoustic displays. It's the first time the behaviour has been documented in this species.

Their first observation was between a male and female dolphin and her calf. The male dolphin dived down to remove a large marine sponge fixed to the seafloor, balanced it on his beak and pushed it toward the female.

G'day mate.

Prion seeding activity and infectivity in skin samples from patients with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Another case of idiot MDs who think they know everything not wanting to test for CJD, and getting mad when something they dont know existed contaminating instruments and spreading diseases.

AI doctors soon please.


Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD), the most common human prion disease, can be transmitted via neurosurgical instruments or corneal or dura mater transplants contaminated by infectious prions. Some epidemiological studies have associated sCJD risk with surgeries that involve the skin, but whether the skin of sCJD patients contains prion infectivity is not known. Orr et al. now report detectable prion seeding activity and infectivity in skin from sCJD patients, although at much lower levels compared to brain tissues from sCJD patients. These data suggest that there may be a potential for iatrogenic sCJD transmission through skin.

Translated Doc Debunks Narrative of Al Qaeda-Iran Alliance "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Journalist Gareth Porter reports:

For many years, major U.S. institutions ranging from the Pentagon to the 9/11 Commission have been pushing the line that Iran secretly cooperated with Al Qaeda both before and after the 9/11 terror attacks. But the evidence for those claims remained either secret or sketchy, and always highly questionable.

In early November, however, the mainstream media claimed to have its "smoking gun"a CIA document written by an unidentified Al Qaeda official and released in conjunction with 47,000 never-before-seen documents seized from Osama bin Laden's house in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

[..] But none of those media reports were based on any careful reading of the document's contents. The 19-page Arabic-language document, which was translated in full for TAC, doesn't support the media narrative of new evidence of Iran-Al Qaeda cooperation, either before or after 9/11, at all. It provides no evidence whatsoever of tangible Iranian assistance to Al Qaeda. On the contrary, it confirms previous evidence that Iranian authorities quickly rounded up those Al Qaeda operatives living in the country when they were able to track them down, and held them in isolation to prevent any further contact with Al Qaeda units outside Iran.

What it shows is that the Al Qaeda operatives were led to believe Iran was friendly to their cause and were quite taken by surprise when their people were arrested in two waves in late 2002. It suggests that Iran had played them, gaining the fighters' trust while maximizing intelligence regarding Al Qaeda's presence in Iran.

Dumb Box? Make it Really Smart! "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Stephen Harrison]s Really Smart Box is a great concept, its simultaneously a simple idea while at the same time being super clever. The Really Smart Box isnt really a box; its a drop-in platform that can be made any size, intended to turn any dumb storage box into one that helps manage and track levels and usage of any sort of stock or consumable.

It does this by measuring the weight of the stuff piled on top of it, while also monitoring temperature and humidity. The platform communicates this information wirelessly to a back end, allowing decisions to be made about stock levels, usage, and monitoring of storage conditions. Its clearly best applied to consumables or other stock that comes and goes. The Really Smart Box platform is battery-powered, but spends most of its time asleep to maximize battery life. The prototype uses the SigFox IoT framework for the wireless data, which we have seen before in a wireless swimming pool monitor.

This is still just a prototype and there are bugs to iron out, but it works and [Stephen] intends to set-and-forget the prototype into the Cambridge Makespace with the task of storin...

HPR2430: Scanning books "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

I want to scan my Son's school books so that he doesn't get back problems lugging books to and from school. Something that for now at least remains legal in the Netherlands. Steps involved Scan all the images using the entire length of your scanner. I use scantoimage.bash Confirm that there are no missing pages, and that every other page is upright and then upside down etc. If they are scan them and rename them so the name fits in between the pages Back up all the scanned images Manually crop the areas of the scans outside the area of the page. Usually this is on the side and bottom of the flat bed. Save is as something like ~/x.jpg Use GraphicsMagick Image Processing System to identify the dimensions of the cropped image. gm identify ~/x.jpg /home/me/x.jpg JPEG 2477x2609+0+0 DirectClass 8-bit 3.2Mi 0.000u 0m:0.000002s Crop all the images to that dimension gm mogrify -crop 2477x2609+0+0 *.jpg Rotate every second image by 180 degrees. rotate-every-second-image.bash Create a directory for the book and in there create a subdirectory for each section of the book. Manually copy all the images to the sub directory for that section. Then go to the root where there are no files only subdirs and run the command for i in *;do echo $i;gm convert "${i}/*.jpg" "${i}.pdf"; done At the end you will have a pdf file for each section of the book.

Mastodon is Actually a Lot Worse Than Twitter When it Comes to Free Speech. Avoid It. "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Mastodon is Oppressive

Mastodon oops

It has been three days since the ban (suspension they said) and it turns out I was wrong to believe that this was temporary. Its actually a lot worse than this. They added insult to injury.

As it turned out, the Mastodon network had effectively shadowbanned me for months. This isnt the fault of one person or one instance because as it turns out the network/federation maintains some sort of blacklists for arbitrarily silencing particular instances/people. So even if I self-hosted my toots, I would be visible/active but blacklisted. Whats the point of such a federation then? Its pure marketing from Mastodon! Its a lie. And other people (elsewhere) have pointed this out too. Its worse than Twitter in that regard. The only difference is that the code is open and one can run it oneself (outside the entire network).

It sounds like mastodon is run by crybullies, one person told me (MinceR). Though its getting worse it has not bottomed out yet, another person told me. Be that as it may, reflecting on Mastodon I have always worried about how it is implemented in practice. While its great that it is federated to some extent, the nodes are basically fiefdoms controlled by a local sysop who turfs people out if they dont both agree 100%. Of course people can and do then start their own nodes, becoming sysops themselves, but then the other sysops go out of their way to block the new nodes that they are not in 100% agreement with. Thus balkanization of ideas and populations continues.

As I then pointed out, moving from node to node also means that the address of the user changes, which leads to other issues. Its like starting from scratch all over again.

They had me shadowbanned for several months (people told me, but I naively thought it was a bug), so its clear they just didnt want me there, as if I was some kind of radical or something. Twitter never treated me this badly; neither did Identi.ca or Diaspora*. So I wanted to concisely write about it and warn other people to stay away from Mastodon.

The sysop in question does not reinstate my account. He does not even respond to my E-mails. Hes rather arrogant about it and talks to me as though I, a person who brought many new users to his instance, am just a nuisance. What a nerve. What an attitude.

I decided that my posts about it (or to....

Amid Constitutional Court Barrier, Unitary Patent (UPC) Looks Dead Even to UPC Proponents, the EPOs UPC Study Comes Under Fire "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The EPO is paying for so-called studies whose purpose is believed to pressure the court

David PearceSummary: This Thanksgiving Day is spent by Team UPC trying to prop up the UPC even though no progress whatsoever is being made and the EPOs study on the UPC is said to be flawed

TEAM UPC refuses to give up on the zombie known as the UPC. Were already seeing some jokes being thrown around about it. Few in this profession actually believe that the UPC is going anywhere. But Team UPC, having invested a vast amount of time and money in the UPC/A, just cannot let go.

Few in this profession actually believe that the UPC is going anywhere.Was this post from ealier today published by Bristows? We dont know for sure, but we are guessing so (based on recent anonymous posts which echoed Bristows and linked to Bristows). It was posted anonymously. The post is totally nonsensical. Posted anonymously by someone from Team UPC, it spreads the lie that the industry wants the UPC (variant of the UPC for SMEs lie). To quote a portion:

Ahead of the meeting of the EU Competitiveness Council, 30 November and 1 December 2017 in Brussels, a group of European companies and associations have sent a letter to EU member states urging them to ratify the Unified Patent Court Agreement and join the Protocol on Provisional Application (PPA) as soon as possible, if they havent done so yet.

According to the letter, the Unitary Patent system will encourage investment, spur growth and create new jobs across Europe. The patent reform will substantially contribute to increased European competitiveness.

This post was not accessible this morning because Kluwer Patent Blog was down (yet again) for a long period of time. When we finally managed to read it we just thought, wow! So much for peer review or quality control at Kluwer! Its hogwash from headline, to start, to finish. Anyone reading this would be led to believe that Europe is salivating over the UPC (unless one knows better).

Evidence of Water Flows on Martian Surface May be Evidence of Dry Sand Flows Instead "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Evidence for liquid water on the surface of Mars may have actually been evidence of sand movement:

One of [Alfred] McEwen's most important finds [on Mars] came in 2011, with the discovery of recurring slope lineae (RSL), thousands of temporary streaks along steep slopes, mostly near the equator, that gradually grow and darken as spring turns to summer, as if fed by seeps of water. They soon became cited as the best evidence for liquid water on the surface of Mars todayand also one of the best places to search for microbial life.

But McEwen has now dowsed some of the excitement ignited by his initial finding. In a study published online this month in Nature Geoscience, he and his colleagues analyzed 151 of the streaks, finding that they only occur on slopes steeper than 27 and always peter out when the angle drops below that [DOI: 10.1038/s41561-017-0012-5] [DX]. The researchers interpret this as a sign that the RSL are not formed by waterwhich would flow down shallower slopesbut rather are dry flows of sand and dust seeking their natural angle of repose.

But there's still hope for life on Mars... or beneath it:

Q: Do you think of Mars as a hospitable place?

A: It's inconceivable to me that there aren't places where there's liquid water today within Mars. If there was ever life on Marsthat originated somewherewhy wouldn't there still be life today in these underground pockets? The surface, on the other hand, is a very harsh environment for life.

Q: Should the search for life be focused on Mars? Or should NASA and other agencies be exploring the ocean worlds that orbit Jupiter and Saturn?

A: I'm heavily involved in one missionthe Europa Clipper. Extant life there is much more likely today than on the surface of Mars. On the other hand, they're further away, and Europa in particular is in a harsh radiation environment. I think we should do both.

The European Patent Office Has Become the Foxconn of Patent Offices "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Suicide nets? Instead, windows have been bolted shut at the EPO.

Foxconn suicide nets

Summary: The demise of the EPO, which emulates patent offices that are racing to the bottom, is a life-threatening employer which now jeopardises its very existence

THE EPO under Battistelli has already seen nearly seven suicides. Some workers would rather be dead than alive, seeing themselves subjected to Chinese trials (politics or a royal decree as arbiter), Chinese human rights, Chinese justice (on patents), and SIPO examination standards.

Some workers would rather be dead than alive, seeing themselves subjected to Chinese trials (politics or a royal decree as arbiter), Chinese human rights, Chinese justice (on patents), and SIPO examination standards.Its no secret that patent quality has sunk. European Patents (EPs) are nowhere near the same level of quality theyve boasted about for decades. In fact, many were recently invalidated in bulk owing to intervention from outside the Office. Those were patents on life. But the push for patents on plants, as one might expect, carries on. Whos behind it? People who are trying to own plants as ridiculous as that notion would seem to a farmer and outlandish even to aliens. As IP Watch put it earlier today: A new position paper by a plant breeders industry group revives the argument that plant-related inventions should be patentable. New plant breeding techniques modifying the plant genome are not essentially biological processes, thus should be patentable, the paper says. The group also calls for a worldwide harmonised research exemption on plant variety rights and patents for the purpose of improving the invention.

EPs on genome made their debut in the EPO this year. Even the USPTO had rejected such patents. Would these be invalidated en masse some time in the next year or two? We dont know. But this, among other things, is a symptom of the worrying quality of EPs. Many EPs are still being granted on software a subject we shall deal with separately even though such patents ar...

Plague Bacteria Were Present in Europe During the Late Stone Age "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Plague reached Europe by Stone Age

Plague was present in Europe during the late Stone Age, according to a study of ancient remains. Writing in Current Biology journal, researchers suggest the deadly bacterium entered Europe with a mass migration of people from further east. They screened more than 500 ancient skeletal samples and recovered the full genomes of plague bacteria from six individuals. These six variously date to between Late Neolithic and Bronze Age times.

The plague-positive samples come from Russia, Germany, Lithuania, Estonia and Croatia. "The two samples from Russia and Croatia are among the oldest plague-positive samples published. They are contemporary with [a] previously published sample from the Altai region [in Siberia]," co-author Alexander Herbig from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, told BBC News.

Swarm of Servos Plays this Robotic Glockenspiel "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Its the happiest sounding instrument in the marching band, and its got the best name to boot. Its the glockenspiel, and if this robotic glockenspiel has anything to say about it, the days of human glockenspielists are numbered.

In its present prototype form, [Averton Engineering]s Spielatron looks a little like something from a carousel calliope or an animatronic pizza restaurant band. Using a cast-off glockenspiel from a school music room as a base, the Spielatron uses four mallets to play all the notes. Each key is struck by a mallet secured to a base made of two servos. For lack of more descriptive mallet terminology, these servos provide pan and tilt so the mallet can strike the proper keys. The video below shows the Spielatrons first recital.

NetNeutrality vs. Verizon censoring Naral "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

People keep retweeting this ACLU graphic in support of net neutrality. It's wrong. In this post, I debunk the second item. I debunk other items in other posts [1] [4].


Firstly, it's not a NetNeutrality issue (which applies only to the Internet), but an issue with text-messages. In other words, it's something that will continue to happen even with NetNeutrality rules. People relate this to NetNeutrality as an analogy, not because it actually is such an issue.

Secondly, it's an edge/content issue, not a transit issue. The details in this case is that Verizon provides a program for sending bulk messages to its customers from the edge of the network. Verizon isn't censoring text messages in transit, but from the edge. You can send a text message to your friend on the Verizon network, and it won't be censored. Thus the analogy is incorrect -- the correct analogy would be with content providers like Twitter and Facebook, not ISPs like Comcast.

Like all cell phone vendors, Verizon polices this content, canceling accounts that abuse the system, like spammers. We all agree such censorship is a good thing, and that such censorship of content providers is not remotely a NetNeutrality issue. Content providers do this not because they disapprove of the content of spam such much as the distaste their customers have for spam.

Content providers that are political, rather than neutral to politics is indeed worrisome. It's not a NetNeutrality issue per se, but it is a general "neutrality" issue. We free-speech activists want all content providers (Twitter, Facebook, Verizon mass-texting programs) to be free of political censorship -- though we don't want government to mandate such neutrality.

But even here, Verizon may be off the hook. They appear not be to be censoring one political view over another, but the controversial/unsavory way Naral expresses its views. Presumably, Verizon would be okay with less controversial political content.

In other words, as Verizon expresses it's principles, it wants to block content that...

NetNeutrality vs. AT&T censoring Pearl Jam "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

People keep retweeting this ACLU graphic in response to the FCC's net neutrality decision. In this post, I debunk the first item on the list. In other posts [2] [4] I debunk other items.


First of all, this obviously isn't a Net Neutrality case. The case isn't about AT&T acting as an ISP transiting network traffic. Instead, this was about AT&T being a content provider, through their "Blue Room" subsidiary, whose content traveled across other ISPs. Such things will continue to happen regardless of the most stringent enforcement of NetNeutrality rules, since the FCC doesn't regulate content providers.

Second of all, it wasn't AT&T who censored the traffic. It wasn't their Blue Room subsidiary who censored the traffic. It was a third party company they hired to bleep things like swear words and nipple slips. You are blaming AT&T for a decision by a third party that went against AT&T's wishes. It was an accident, not AT&T policy.

Thirdly, and this is the funny bit, Tim Wu, the guy who defined the term "net neutrality", recently wrote an op-ed claiming that while ISPs shouldn't censor traffic, that content providers should. In other words, he argues that companies AT&T's Blue Room should censor political content.

What activists like ACLU say about NetNeutrality have as little relationship to the truth as Trump's tweets. Both pick "facts" that agree with them only so long as you don't look into them.

NetNeutrality vs. limiting FaceTime "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

People keep retweeting this ACLU graphic in regards to NetNeutrality. In this post, I debunk the fourth item. In previous posts [1] [2] I debunk other items.


But here's the thing: the FCC allowed these restrictions, despite the FCC's "Open Internet" order forbidding such things. In other words, despite the graphic's claims it "happened without net neutrality rules", the opposite is true, it happened with net neutrality rules.


When Apple released FaceTime, they themselves restricted it's use to WiFi, preventing its use on cell phone networks. That's because Apple recognized mobile networks couldn't handle it.

When Apple flipped the switch and allowed it's use on mobile networks, because mobile networks had gotten faster, they clearly said "carrier restrictions may apply". In other words, it said "carriers may restrict FaceTime with our blessing if they can't handle the load".

When Tim Wu wrote his paper defining "NetNeutrality" in 2003, he anticipated just this scenario. He wrote:
"The goal of bandwidth management is, at a general level, aligned with network neutrality."
He doesn't give "bandwidth management" a completely free pass. He mentions the issue frequently in his paper with a less favorable description, such as here:
Similarly, while managing bandwidth is a laudable goal, its achievement through restricting certain application ty...

How to Beam Factories to Mars "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In a recent blog post, Paul Krugman tried to illustrate a point about the GOP tax cut plan by imagining interplanetary trade with Martians. (At least hes now entertaining voluntary transactions, rather than an alien invasion.) Yet in his zeal to downplay the potential benefits to workers from a corporate tax cut, Krugman ends up shortchanging the versatility of markets. As a teaching exercise, Ill walk through the full implications of Krugmans story about Martians, to show the elegance of capitalism.

Krugmans Martian Scenario

The context for Krugmans fanciful thought experiment is the GOP plan to cut the corporate income tax rate from 35 to 20 percent. In order to sell this plan as pro-worker, the GOP defenders are arguing that capital is very mobile on the international market. Therefore, global investors can be picky, and must earn the same aftertax rate of return (due account being made for risk), wherever they invest. This means so the GOP argument continues that a large cut in the US corporate tax rate will simply invite a flood of foreign capital into the US, pushing down the pre tax rate of return to reestablish equilibrium across all countries. Yet this process helps American workers, who are now mixing their labor with a larger capital stock. Because labor productivity is higher with more tools and equipment, wage rates end up rising. Thus, so the argument concludes, the primary beneficiaries of the GOP tax cut wont be international capitalists, but instead will be American workers.

Tired of continual price hikes on your broadband deal? Then why not move to Iran? According to a study released today, it has the cheapest broadband (if you're willing to ignore political and social problems).

The survey conducted by cable.co.uk and BDRC Continental ranked 196 countries on their monthly prices for a broadband connection, using 3,351 consumer packages tracked over eight weeks (ending October 12) to calculate the average.

At $5.37 (4.05) a month, Iran beats second placed Ukraine at $5.52 a month, with both significantly cheaper than Russia at $9.82 a month.

Burkina Faso is last at 196th place, costing users $954.54 (720.77) per month. Papua New Guinea is 195th, but much better at $597.20 (450.95), then Namibia at $431.99 (326.20). The UK comes in 62nd place, averaging 30.54 a month($40.44).

Artificial Intelligence is Important for Cybersecurity, But Its Not Enough "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The advent of Artificial Intelligence has brought with it a new scope for cybersecurity. Why the artificial intelligence is important for cybersecurity?

In my last blog, I discussed AI and Big Data. Now, I am going to explain about AI and Cybersecurity.

The advent of Artificial Intelligence has brought with it a new scope for cybersecurity. After all, an intelligent security system is expected to overcome any sophisticated threats. However, many security experts believe that AI is a double-edged sword and hence it could become dangerous at an epic level if it gets into the wrong hands. Let us make a quick analysis on the unison between cybersecurity and AI.

Cybersecurity is the need of the day. As if we didnt have enough to worry about with terrorists running wild always looking to inflict damage we now have to worry about Cybercriminals as well. And in many cases, they can be a lot more dangerous than your average terrorist.

The significance of having a perfect cybersecurity strategy or solution has grown over the years. All the credit goes to the proliferation of smart devices on the Internet. Also, because of the growing endpoints that are always connected to the cyberspace, cybercriminals now have a plethora of opportunities to infiltrate devices.

Artificial Intelligence

Not only do hackers have more entry points to breach, but they also have more sophisticated tools to penetrate even into highly-secured devices or networks. How are they doing it? By mass producing sophisticated malware.

Glue Gun Teardown Reveals Microcontroller Mystery "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[electrobob] got a Bosch GluePen cordless hot glue gun. The thing has some nice features it heats up in fifteen seconds, and charges via USB, and is generally handy for those small and quick jobs that hot glue guns were made to perform. At first glance it seems like a huge improvement over the plug-in varieties, which seem to take forever to heat up when all you need is a quick dab of glue.

As cool as the product sounded, [bob] did what any right-minded hacker would do and opened it up to see how that sucker work and found an ATtiny24A inside. Whats most interesting is that there appears to be no temperature regulation or sensing capability, with the exception of the thermistor in the battery-charging circuit. Its an intriguing mystery.

The ATtiny controls a power MOSFET that brings the heating element to approximately 170 degrees according to the manual. [bob] could find no temperature regulation of the hot end, which measures a steady 12 V at the gate of the transistor then entire time the glue gun is powered on.

That ATtiny24A that runs the whole thing packs 12 GPIO pins, 4 PWM channels, and 2 KB program memory. It appears a bit overpowered for a glue gun controller. [bob] found one of the Tinys pins connected the heating element and another to the charging circuit. Maybe a shutoff in case the battery catches fire?

PSA: If you opened your PayPal account before you were 18, close it now. "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Everyone knows a horror story about PayPal, Ive had several painful experiences with them over the last decade, but now Ill never have to experience that again, as Ive just been permanently bannedif you created your account in the same way I did, its time to close yours too - before you get banned in the same manner.

As a teenager, my mother may have wanted me outside on the field with everyone else, but I was sat in my bedroom in 2006/7, learning HTML/CSS and these fancy new technologies called AJAX and jQuery. Eventually some of these skills became useful and I found myself at the age of 17 realising that there was money to be made online, and this was where my life was heading.

Without much thought, I setup a PayPal account, attached my bank account (which I still use today) and away I went. I didnt make thousands, in fact I didnt really make a lot at all, but it was fun, I learned a lot about web development and a ton about entrepreneurial life, all whilst starting to make a name for myself and grow my contact list.

As the years passed, I used PayPal for eBay, online services and sending/receiving money from clients. I dont know how much Ive sent/received over the last decade with PayPal but I do know its been a lot of money, which further boggles my mind as to why I was suddenly banned now, without warning.

Getting Permanently Banned

I do a lot of work and trading of services with a friend called Mat. We work on similar client work, we run some websites together and trade domains/websites regularly. Rather than use a bank transfer or Western Union for a recent payment, we decided to use PayPal. I have some large automotive bills coming up, using PayPal should have been a quick way for Mat to send me some money thatd be in my bank within the houror so I thought.

Fees always destroy the amount.

On Thursday morning, Mat sent me through some money. I got a buzz in my pocket to let me know that Id received 348.10, although after fees that came to 329.10 (thanks PayPal).

As Ive dealt with PayPal randomly freezing my account before (as most people have), I withdraw money instantly, so that they cant hold it to ransom. Unfortunately in this case, I was too late, the hostage was already taken.

Ever the golden standard of useful error messages, PayPal informed me in the mobile app that my account was limited. Although I wasnt sure what that meant, I quickly realised after trying to get any amount withdrawn that it meant suspended. I spent quite a long time tapping around the mobile app before guessing that there is no functionality in the app to h...

Belgium Moving to Ban "Loot Boxes" Throughout Europe, Hawaii Could Restrict Sale to Minors "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Video game gambling schemes known as "loot boxes" or "loot crates" could be banned or restricted by regulators:

We learned last week that Belgium's gambling authority was investigating loot crates in Star Wars Battlefront II over concerns that they constitute gambling. Now, the decision is in, and the answer is a resounding yes, according to Dutch-language publication VTM Nieuws. The commission claims that purchasable add-on boxes, the contents of which are randomized, mix "money and addiction" and thus are a form of gambling.

Belgian Minister of Justice Koen Geens added: "Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for the mental health of the child." The commission will now reportedly work through the European Union's process to execute a total ban. We've reached out to Belgium's Gaming Commission for more details on its next steps and the legal implications of the ruling.

The country isn't alone in its stance on loot boxes. Just hours ago, Rep. Chris Lee (D) from Hawaii denounced EA's "predatory behavior" in a speech uploaded to YouTube (first spotted by Kotaku). In the clip, Lee also talks of the detrimental affect micro-transactions have on children, with specific reference to Battlefront II, which he describes as a a "Star Wars-themed online casino, designed to lure kids into spending money".

Looming Net Neutrality Repeal Sparks BitTorrent Throttling Fears "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Ten years ago we uncovered that Comcast was systematically slowing down BitTorrent traffic to ease the load on its network.

The Comcast case ignited a broad discussion about net neutrality and provided the setup for the FCCs Open Internet Order, which came into effect three years later.

This Open Internet Order then became the foundation of the net neutrality regulation that was adopted in 2015 and still applies today. The big change compared to the earlier attempt was that ISPs can be regulated as carriers under Title II.

These rules provide a clear standard that prevents ISPs from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization of lawful traffic. However, this may soon be over as the FCC is determined to repeal it.

FCC head Ajit Pai recently told Reuters that the current rules are too restrictive and hinder competition and innovation, which is ultimately not in the best interests of consumers

The FCC will no longer be in the business of micromanaging business models and preemptively prohibiting services and applications and products that could be pro-competitive, Pai said. We should simply set rules of the road that let companies of all kinds in every sector compete and let consumers decide who wins and loses.

This week the FCC released its final repeal draft (pdf), which was met with fierce resistance from the public and various large tech companies. They fear that, if the current net neutrality rules disappear, throttling and fast lanes for some services will become commonplace.

This could also mean that BitTorrent traffic could become a target once again, with it being blocked or throttled across many networks, as The Verge just pointed out.

Blocking BitTorrent traffic would indeed become much easier if current net neutrality safeguards were removed. However, the FCC believes that the current no-throttling rules are unnecessary to prevent the harms that they were intended to thwart, such as blocking entire file transfer protocols.

Instead, the FCC notes that antitrust law, FTC enforcement of ISP commitments, and consumer expectations will prevent any unwelcome blocking. This is also the reason why IS...

Nintendo Switch overtakes iPhone X to become TIMEs best gadget of 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Xbox One X, iPhone X, and Microsofts Surface Laptop feature in Time Magazines Top 10 Gadgets of 2017 list

Like every year, this year too TIME Magazine has published its list of Top 10 gadgets of 2017. Surprising everyone at the top spot was Nintendo Switch, the latest hybrid console manufactured by Nintendo, which surpassed Apples latest flagship iPhone X in the list. Nintendo Switch has been called as the first console thats truly designed for both at-home and on-the-go entertainment.

The Switch consists of a tablet with a 6.2-inch screen with slots for attaching Nintendos Joy-Con controllers on either side, turning it into a handheld video game machine. But when youre at home, you can slide the slate into a dock that hooks up to your TV and play it like a traditional console. That play anywhere, anytime approach, combined with a stellar games roster, from the recently launched Super Mario Odyssey to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, makes the Switch a true knockout, TIME told about the console.

Ranked at number 2, the premium iPhone X released earlier this month is in news for its improved specifications, Face ID technology and edge-to-edge display. In fact, TIME had named iPhone X as one of the top 25 inventions of 2017 last week.

Yes, its expensive. Yes, youll probably have a hard time getting your hands on one. And yes, Android did it first. But the iPhone Xs edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition system will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come. For one, Apples Face ID system, even despite the security concerns, is already being used in more creative ways than Samsungs facial identification tech. Third-party apps like Snapchat and Warby Parker are taking advantage of the iPhone Xs face-mapping technology to project realistic masks over your eyes or select glasses that suit your faces shape. That, combined with a sharp camera, long battery life, and large screen packed into a more palatable size, make Apples iPhone X a top pick, writes the publication.

After iPhone X comes Microsofts Surface Laptop in the third place, followed by DJI Spark Drone and Samsung Galaxy S8 in the fourth and fifth places respectively.

Also, another Apple product that made it to the Top 10 is Apple Watch Series 3, which also has earned praise of the publication.

Apples latest smartwatch finally lets you leave your phone at home. Since it supports LTE, you can receive calls and texts on your wrist even when your phone is out of range. The third-generation Apple Watch also brings a faster processor and a new barometric altimeter for measuring activities like the numbers of stairs you climb. The Apple Watch...

Building a Skyrim Quest Marker "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Im working on a Skyrim quest marker. You probably know what this is even if you never have played the game. When a character or location in the game relates to a quest, an arrow floats over it so you dont miss it. If its a book, the book has the arrow floating over it. If its a person, it floats over that characters head. It is that quest marker I aim to re-create.

I sat down in front of my sketchbook and drew the basic parameters. I wanted it to be approximately to scale to the human/elf/orc heads it usually floats above. I ended up going with around 9 inches from top to bottom. In terms of thickness, any amount of blatant dimensionality is bad, as the game element exists in only 2 dimensions. That said, I will be re-creating this thing in the real world, and LEDs and acrylic and plywood and other things need to go inside.

I decided to make it around 1.25 inches thick, which would include enough space for a 9V battery if I so chose, plus a proto board and microcontroller.

Before I finalized the dimensions I had to design the circuit. Originally I looked at Adafruits backlight LED panels, but I felt it would be too hard to fit into the pointy parts of the enclosure, both physically and in terms of light distribution. Instead I went with a strand of...

Plant Spies: DARPAs Plan to Create Organic Surveillance Sensors "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Soon, the trees will be listening.

There are plenty of gardeners that talk to their plants in the belief that it helps them grow. While plants aren't likely to be eavesdropping on our conversations anytime soon, they could be gathering different types of intelligence if a new DARPA program bears fruit. The agency is pursuing research into genetically modifying plants to turn them into self-sustaining surveillance sensors.
...
The aim of the program is to genetically modify certain plants so that specific response mechanisms are triggered when they are presented with specific stimuli. It is suggested that existing hardware can be used to remotely monitor these responses so the plants could essentially be used as organic sensors. As such, the program won't seek to develop new hardware for this purpose, but rely on existing technologies that can already measure such things as a plants' temperature, chemical composition and reflectance.

If this tech is successful, we'll need Aeon Flux.

Some security folks cant be trusted to do sane things, says Linus Torvalds "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Linus Torvalds slammed a Google security expert about his approach to cyber security, saying some security professionals are f*cking morons

Linus Torvalds slammed a Google security expert about his approach to cyber security after a request to change the Linux kernel, saying some security professionals are f*cking morons.

Linus Torvalds, creator and principal developer of the Linux kernel, confessed that he doesnt trust security people to do sane things, saying some security professionals are just f*cking morons. Torvalds ranted on the Linux developers forum that security professionals concentrated on process-killing rather than debugging.

This significantly narrows the areas of memory that can be copied to/from userspace in the face of usercopy bugs by adding explicit whitelisting for slab cache regions, he explained. This has lived in -next for quite some time without major problems, but there were some late-discovered missing whitelists, so a fallback mode was added just to make sure we dont break anything. I expect to remove the fallback mode in a release or two.

Torvalds reacted to this saying that these kinds of pull requests can be very painful as they touch core elements and time must be spent investigating them.

When I pull 20+ other pull requests a day, I dont have _time_ to spend time on them, Torvalds added. They are scary because: they touch core stuff, [and] I dont trust security people to do sane things.

When Torvalds raised doubts over the validity of the request, others supporting Cook urged him to please do pull a subset, even after -rc1.

This, in turn, prompted Cook to offer more information on the request, saying:

This is why I introduced the fallback mode: with both kvm and sctp (ipv6) not noticed until late in the development cycle, I became much less satisfied it had gotten sufficient testing.

With the fallback mode, missed whitelists generate a WARN and are allowed, so this series effectively only introduces tight controls on the places where a whitelist is specifically introduced. And I went to great lengths to do...

You need to patch your Samba installation as soon as possible "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The major Linux distributions rolled out security fixes for a use-after-free error, tracked as CVE-2017-14746, affecting all versions of SAMBA since 4.0.

The major Linux distributions (Red Hat, Ubuntu, Debian and others) rolled out security patches for a use-after-free error, tracked as CVE-2017-14746, affecting all versions of SAMBA since 4.0.

Administrations have to apply the fixes to their distributions, another possibility consists in turning off SAMBA 1, and operation that could hide some difficulties.

According to the projects advisory, an attacker can use a malicious SMB1 request to control the contents of heap memory via a deallocated heap pointer.

All versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onwards are vulnerable to a use after free vulnerability, where a malicious SMB1 request can be used to control the contents of heap memory via a deallocated heap pointer. It is possible this may be used to compromise the server. reads the advisory.

The patch to fix the issue is available at the following URL:

http://www.samba.org/samba/security/

The versions 4.7.3, 4.6.11 and 4.5.15 have been issued to address the vulnerability.

The maintainers of the project have also issued patches for older versions at:

http://samba.org/samba/patches/.

The advisory includes also a workaround, it consists in preventing SMB1 access to the server by setting the parameter:

server min protocol = SMB2

to the [global] section of your smb.conf and restart smbd.

Unfortunately, the advisory warns of problems, older clients to be unable to connect to the server.

Administrators running vulnerable versions are advised to apply the patch as soon as possible.

There is also another flaw, tracked as CVE-2017-15275, that affects all the versions from 3.6.0 onwards that has been fixed by Samba.

According to the advisory, the server may return the contents of heap allocated memory to the client revealing password hashes or other high-value data.

There is no known vulnerability associated with this error, but uncleared heap memory may contain previously used data that may help an attacker compromise the server via other methods. Uncleared heap memory may potentially contain....

Android devices still track you when location services are turned off "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Android smartphones have been sending location data to Google, even if you opted out

Android smartphone users beware, as Google is secretly gathering your location data even when you have actively disable location services on the device, reveals an investigation conducted by Quartz.

Apparently, Android smartphones since the beginning of 2017 have been collecting addresses of nearby cellular towers even when location services are turned off and sending this data back to Google when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network or has a cellular data enabled.

While Google confirmed the practice to Quartz, the search giant said it would end the practice by the end of November and Android smartphones will no longer send cell-tower location data to Google, reports Quartz.

The data was being collected as a part of the Firebase Cloud Messaging, which the app developers and Google use to send notification messages or data messages to the consumers or their own apps, Google told Quartz. The sad part is that this cannot be disabled and it doesnt depend on what apps you have installed even if your smartphone has gone through a factory reset or the SIM card has been removed.

In January of this year, we began looking into using Cell ID codes as an additional signal to further improve the speed and performance of message delivery, a Google spokesperson told Quartz about the location-sharing practice. However, we never incorporated Cell ID into our network sync system, so that data was immediately discarded, and we updated it to no longer request Cell ID.

It is still unclear how cell-tower addresses that helps in identifying a specific cell tower, could have been used to improve message delivery. The findings breach a reasonable consumer expectation of privacy, reports Quartz.

With no way to opt out, Google collecting this type of data seems extremely disturbing for Android users and a concern from security point of view. However, if an Android device were to be stolen, it could end up compromising the cell tower data. Although Google says the cell tower data is encrypted, it doesnt mean it cant be compromised by a hacker. The only way to stop it would be possible only when Google make changes to Android.

Intel Management Engine Critical Firmware Update "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

It's time to update your Management Engine:

Intel has issued a security alert that management firmware on a number of recent PC, server, and Internet-of-Things processor platforms are vulnerable to remote attack. Using the vulnerabilities, the most severe of which was uncovered by Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy of Positive Technologies Research, remote attackers could launch commands on a host of Intel-based computers, including laptops and desktops shipped with Intel Core processors since 2015. They could gain access to privileged system information, and millions of computers could essentially be taken over as a result of the bug. Most of the vulnerabilities require physical access to the targeted device, but one allows remote attacks with administrative access.

The company has posted a detection tool on its support website for Windows and Linux to help identify systems that are vulnerable. In the security alert, members of Intel's security team stated that "in response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of its Intel Management Engine (ME), Intel Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Intel Server Platform Services (SPS) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience."

Google gathers Android users location data even when location services are disabled "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Google is secretly gathering location data from billions of Android users, the news is disconcerting and once again raise the debate about users privacy.

The disconcerting discovery was made by researchers from Quartz.
Big G has been caught collecting location data on every Android device owner in the past 11 months. The worse news is that the Google is gathering location data even when location services are completely disabled.

Since the beginning of 2017, Android phones have been collecting the addresses of nearby cellular towerseven when location services are disabledand sending that data back to Google. The result is that Google, the unit of Alphabet behind Android, has access to data about individuals locations and their movements that go far beyond a reasonable consumer expectation of privacy. states Quartz.

The experts discovered that Android smartphones have been collecting the addresses of nearby cellular towers, an information that could be used to track the location of mobile devices with the Cell Tower Triangulation technique.
When an Android device is within the range of a new cell tower, it gathers the cell tower address and sends this data back to Google when the device is connected via a WiFi network or cellular data network.
A source familiar with the matter said Quartz that the cell tower addresses were being sent to Google after a change in early 2017 to the Firebase Cloud Messaging service.

The Firebase Cloud Messaging service is the component responsible for collecting location data that manages push notifications and messages on the operating system, unfortunately it cannot be disabled.

Even devices that had been reset to factory default settings and apps, with location services disabled, were observed by Quartz sending nearby cell-tower addresses to Google. continues Quartz media.

Devices with a cellular data or WiFi connection appear to send the data to Google each time they come within range of a new cell tower. When Android devices are connected to a WiFi network, they will send the tower addresses to Google even if they dont have SIM cards installed.

Lightning Can Cause Nuclear Reactions and Generate Antimatter "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Lightning can transmute nitrogen into carbon-14 and cause the emission of a positron, the antimatter counterpart of the electron:

Lightning can accelerate some electrons to almost the speed of light, and the electrons can then produce -rays. [Leonid] Babich proposed that when one of these -rays hits the nucleus of a nitrogen atom in the atmosphere, the collision can dislodge a neutron. After briefly bouncing around, most of the neutrons get absorbed by another nitrogen nucleus. This adds energy to the receiving nucleus and puts it in an excited state. As the receiving nucleus relaxes to its original state, it emits another -ray contributing to the giveaway -ray glow.

Meanwhile, the nitrogen nucleus that has lost one neutron is extremely unstable. It decays radioactively over the next minute or so; in so doing, it emits a positron, which almost immediately annihilates with an electron, producing two 511-keV photons. This was the third signal, Enoto says. He suspects that his detectors were able to see it only because the briefly radioactive cloud was low, and moving towards the detectors. This combination of circumstances might help to explain why the photonuclear signature has been seen so rarely. Enoto says that his team has observed a few similar events, but that the one described in the paper is the only clear-cut event so far.

Babich also predicted that not all of the neutrons dislodged from nitrogen by a -ray are absorbed. Some of them instead will trigger the transmutation of another nitrogen nucleus into carbon-14, a radioactive isotope that has two more neutrons than ordinary carbon. This isotope can be absorbed by organisms; it then decays at a predictable rate long after the organism's death, which makes it a useful clock for archaeologists.

The main source of the carbon-14 in the atmosphere has generally been considered to be cosmic rays. In principle, lightning could also contribute to the supply. But it is not clear yet how much of the isotope is produced in this way, says Enoto, in part because it's possible that not all bolts initiate photonuclear reactions.

Almost any PC vendor announced the imminent release of fixes for the flaws in Intel Management Engine, but many of them will be available only in 2018.

Intel has started to issue security updated to fix multiple flaws in Intels CPUs, unfortunately many of them will not be available to the end-users until 2018.

The tech giant has fixed multiple vulnerabilities in Intels Management Engine, Server Platform Services, and Trusted Execution Engine.

An attacker can exploit the vulnerabilities to remotely access the vulnerable machine and perform in a stealth way malicious activities, including to deliver a malware.

This type of flaws is very insidious because any countermeasure implemented at the operating system level is not able to detect malicious operation because Active Management Technology (AMT) has direct access to the computers network hardware. Malicious traffic is routed directly to the Management Engine and passed on to AMT, but the local OS never sees it.

The flaws were first found by the experts at the security firm Positive Technologies that published a detailed analysis of the attack scenarios.

Learn About Blockchains By Building One "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

What do we curious Hackaday scribes do when we want to learn about something? First port of call: search the web.

When that something is blockchain technology and were looking for an explanation that expands our cursory overview into a more fundamental understanding of the basic principles, there is a problem. It seems that to most people blockchains equate to one thing: cryptocurrencies, and since cryptocurrencies mean MONEY, they then descend into a cultish frenzy surrounded by a little cloud of flying dollar signs. Finding [Daniel van Flymen]s explanation of the fundamentals of a blockchain in terms of the creation of a simple example chain using Python was thus a breath of fresh air, and provided the required education. Even if he does start the piece by assuming that the reader is yet another cryptocurrency wonk.

We start by creating a simple class to hold all the Python functions, then we are shown a single block. In his example its a JSON object, and it contains the payload in the form of a transaction record along with the required proof-of-work and hash. Were then taken through a very simple proof-of-work algorithm, before being shown how the whole can be implemented as very simple endpoints.

Google & Apple Order Telegram to Nuke Channel Over Taylor Swift Piracy "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Financed by Russian Facebook (vKontakte) founder Pavel Durov, Telegram is a multi-platform messaging system that has grown from 100,000 daily users in 2013 to an impressive 100 million users in February 2016.

Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, its super-fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets or computers, the companys marketing reads.

One of the attractive things about Telegram is that it allows users to communicate with each other using end-to-end encryption. In some cases, these systems are used for content piracy, of music and other smaller files in particular. This is compounded by the presence of user-programmed bots, which are able to search the web for illegal content and present it in a Telegram channel to which other users can subscribe.

While much of this sharing files under the radar when conducted privately, it periodically attracts attention from copyright holders when it takes place in public channels. That appears to have happened recently when popular channel Any Suitable Pop was completely disabled by Telegram, an apparent first following a copyright complaint.

According to channel creator Anton Vagin, the action by Telegram was probably due to the unauthorized recent sharing of the Taylor Swift album Reputation. However, it was the route of complaint that proves of most interest.

Rather than receiving a takedown notice directly from Big Machine Records, the label behind Swifts releases, Telegram was forced into action after receiving threats from Apple and Google, the companies that distribute the Telegram app for iOS and Android respectively.

According to a message Vagin received from Telegram support, Apple and Google had received complaints about Swifts album from Universal Music, the distributor of Big Machine Records. The suggestion was that if Telegram didnt delete the infringing channel, distribution of the Telegram app via iTunes and Google Play would be at risk. Vagin received no warning notices from any of the companies involved.

NASA Discovers Mantle Plume Almost as Hot as Yellowstone Supervolcano That's Melting Antarctica From Below

By Hannah Osborne On 11/8/17 at 8:30 AM


http://www.newsweek.com/antarctica-melting-below-mantle-plume-almost-hot-yellowstone-supervolcano-705086

A mantle plume producing almost as much heat as Yellowstone supervolcano appears to be melting part of West Antarctica from beneath.

Researchers at NASA have discovered a huge upwelling of hot rock under Marie Byrd Land, which lies between the Ross Ice Shelf and the Ross Sea, is creating vast lakes and rivers under the ice sheet. The presence of a huge mantle plume could explain why the region is so unstable today, and why it collapsed so quickly at the end of the last Ice Age, 11,000 years ago.

Mantle plumes are thought to be part of the plumbing systems that brings hot material up from Earths interior. Once it gets through the mantle, it spreads out under the crust, providing magma for volcanic eruptions. The area above a plume is known as a hotspot.


For 30 years, scientists have suggested that a mantle plume may exist under Marie Byrd Land. Its presence would explain the regional volcanic activity seen in the area, as well as a dome feature that exists there. However, there was no evidence to support this idea.

Now, scientists from NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory have created advanced numerical models to show how much heat would need to exist beneath the ice to account for their observationsincluding the dome and the giant subsurface rivers and lakes we know are present on Antarcticas bedrock. As lakes fill and drain, the ice thousands of feet above rises and falls, sometimes by as much as 20 feet.

Study author Hlne Seroussi, from JPL, said when she first heard that a mantle plume might...

Crooks set up a fake Symantec Blog to spread the macOS Proton malware "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A new strain of the notorious macOS Proton malware is spreading through a blog spoofing the legitimate blog of the security firm Symantec.

The attackers used the same domain registration information of the original site, except for the email address.

The SSL digital certificate for the site is a legitimate certificate issued by Comodo instead of the Symantecs certificate authority.

The malware is being promoted via a fake Symantec blog site at symantecblog[dot]com. The site is a good imitation of the real Symantec blog, even mirroring the same content. The registration information for the domain appears, on first glance, to be legitimate, using the same name and address as the legitimate Symantec site. The email address used to register the domain is a dead giveaway, reads the analysis published by Malwarebytes.

Threat actors spread links to the fake blog on Twitter using both fake and legitimate compromised accounts. The Symantec Malware Detector application acts like a dropper.

The malicious Symantec Malware Detector application displays a simple window with  the Symantec logo requiring the authorization to perform a system check.If the victim agrees to run the check, the admin password is requested, allowing the malware stealing the password. Next, the app displays a progress bar to trick victims into believing that it is scanning the computer, instead it is installing the Proton malware in the background.

EPO is Imploding as Benot Battistelli Drains Out Work, Talent, and Justice "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

And UPC isnt happening, contrary to the lies we still see coming from Team UPC

Drain

Summary: Battistellis vicious assault on the Office, culminating in an attack on justice and the drainage of work (declining/decreasing demand for products) necessarily means mass layoffs and nothing to fill the vacuum left

THINGS have been relatively quiet on the EPO front this week, but that does not mean that the EPOs management ceased working towards its nefarious goals. Just yesterday, for example, it carried on pushing for UPC, claiming that high-IP trade and FDI flows to or between EU countries are expected to increase by 2% & 15% respectively.

The push for the UPC by Battistelli and the circle (Team Battistelli) means that they want to expel the appeal boards.These EPO-funded talking points have been produced, reportedly, in order to help pressure German courts. Its part of the lobbying. The EPO also wrote about the exile to Haar, calling it a relocation. This is not a relocation, however, but a coordinated attack on the law itself. The push for the UPC by Battistelli and the circle (Team Battistelli) means that they want to expel the appeal boards. They want to eliminate auditors of patent quality. They planned it for a long time. It doesnt seem to matter to them that the UPC is collapsing.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Tweaked With "Socialist Values" for China Release "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is one of 2017's most popular video games, and it's getting a makeover for the Chinese market:

Chinese gaming giant Tencent Holdings Ltd is bringing "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds", the world's hottest video game, to China, but with a twist. The gory, battle royale-style game will get a socialist makeover to meet stringent Chinese rules. The move comes after China's content regulator slammed the South Korean-made game, PUBG for short, last month for being too violent and said it would likely be blocked because it "severely deviates from socialist core values".

The PUBG game where players fight for survival on a deserted island is currently the world's top-selling videogame, having shipped more than 20 million copies since its launch in March. It has been developed by South Korean firm Blue Hole.

Tencent, which recently outstripped Facebook Inc in market value, said it had won the exclusive rights to the game in China, and that it would modify the game in order to meet the requirements of China's regulators and censors. "(Tencent) will make adjustment to content ... and make sure they accord with socialist core values, Chinese traditional culture and moral rules," it said in a statement on Wednesday.

Don Jr.: I'll bite "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

So Don Jr. tweets the following, which is an excellent troll. So I thought I'd bite. The reason is I just got through debunk Democrat claims about NetNeutrality, so it seems like a good time to balance things out and debunk Trump nonsense.

The issue here is not which side is right. The issue here is whether you stand for truth, or whether you'll seize any factoid that appears to support your side, regardless of the truthfulness of it. The ACLU obviously chose falsehoods, as I documented. In the following tweet, Don Jr. does the same.

It's a preview of the hyperpartisan debates are you are likely to have across the dinner table tomorrow, which each side trying to outdo the other in the false-hoods they'll claim.

What we see in this number is a steady trend of these statistics since the Great Recession, with no evidence in the graphs showing how Trump has influenced these numbers, one way or the other.

Stock markets at all time highs

This is true, but it's obviously not due to Trump. The stock markers have been steadily rising since the Great Recession. Trump has done nothing substantive to change the market trajectory. Also, he hasn't inspired the market to change it's direction.


To be fair to Don Jr., we've all been crediting (or blaming) presidents for changes in the stock market despite the fact they have almost no influence over it. Presidents don't run the economy, it's an inappropriate conceit. The most influence they've...

Functioning Technic SLJ900 Bridge Builder "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Wolf]s model is 2 meters long and weighs 10.5kg, consisting of 13 LEGO motors and a pneumatic rig, all run by a handheld control box. The rig inserts LEGO connectors to a simulated bridge span, lifts it up, moves it over the next pier, then drops it down into place. The span weighs 2.5kg by itself that aint no styrofoam! There are a lot of cool details in the project. For instance, the mechanism that turns the wheels for lateral movement consists of a LEGO-built pneumatic compressor that trips pneumatic actuators that lift the wheels off the ground and allows them to turn 90 degrees.

Sometimes it blows the mind what can be built with Technic. Check out this rope-braiding machine and this 7-segment display weve posted.

Trial of Inauguration Protesters is a Comedy of Tech N00bs "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Center for American Progress reports

Prosecutors and defense attorneys have only just begun to wrestle over the facts in an unprecedented series of felony trials stemming from the mass round-up arrest of hundreds of protesters on Inauguration Day. The federal government is arguing that everyone charged was an active participant, provoking alarming notions of collective punishment, but video evidence and media reports indicate that many caught in the mass arrest were not organized Antifa disrupters but rather onlookers caught in a dragnet.

[...] Lawyers from each side struggled [November 21, the second day of the trial of 6 defendants] to work up any kind of rhythm in their questioning because of the repeated interruptions necessary to navigate the gigantic pile of video evidence the government is relying upon. One might expect a serious felony trial involving thousands of gigabytes of video data covering hours of chaos in the streets to have some state-of-the-art system for playback--or at least the kind of pre-cut clips common on sports highlights shows.

But the law and order playing out in Courtroom 203 of the D.C. Superior Court has no such handy facilitation.

"I'm just going to back it up and--oops too far", Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) Rizwan Qureshi said while trying to examine one government witness Tuesday.

The system befuddled defense attorneys just as much during their attempts at cross-examination. When one of the six defendants' lawyers sought to play back video for a Metropolitan Police Department officer, her colleague's computer froze up and only played sound. As the team tried to figure it out, Judge Lynn Leibovitz leaned toward their table and suggested they all "might want to get a tech person."

Teardown Of A Cheap Glue Gun "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A hot glue gun is one of those standard tools of the hardware hackers bench, called upon to provide adhesion between an astonishing range of materials, and to provide a handy filler and strain relief in the form of blobs of polymer glue. Weve all got one, but how many of us have taken a look inside it?

[Andrew Lorimer] bought a super-cheap eBay glue gun, and subjected it to a teardown. As you might expect, he found it to be a pretty simple device with only a trigger mechanism and a dumb heating element, but his write-up is of passing interest because hes characterised its heating element. It has a positive temperature coefficient, which means that its resistance increases from around 2.5 k at room temperature to about 7 k at its 150 C operating temperature. This limits the current, and provides a very simple thermostat action.

The build quality is surprisingly good for such a cheap appliance, and he notes a surfeit of screws holding its shell together. But the quality of the insulation and strain relief leaves a lot to be desired, and he wonders whether it truly qualifies for its double-insulated logo. The LED pilot light is simply fed from the 240 V mains supply through a 250 k resistor which he replaces with a 12 k component for a brighter result.

We cover plenty of teardowns here at Hackaday. Often they are of extremely expensive and complex devices, but sometimes they are of much simpler subjects.

The Mate Selection Trapdoor - Issue 54: The Unspoken "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


The evolution of sexual beauty is an ongoing experiment in every species, including our own. Variation in courtship traits arise and are judged by choosers who quickly relegate most of them to the dustbin of history. But new attempts at beauty that pass muster, that trigger a hidden preference, hit the evolutionary jackpot.

Hidden preferences are often lurking in animals sexual aesthetics, masked to others because there are yet no sexual traits to elicit them. But if that trait evolves, one that matches or exploits a particular sexual aesthetic, then it is immediately deemed to be sexually beautiful, and, all else being equal, it should soon evolve to be common among males. This notion of how sexual beauty can evolve was virtually unknown before 1990 until a few other researchers and I developed this theory. Now it is thought to be one of the major factors driving the evolution of sexual beauty.

Why Females Decide Whats Beautiful - Issue 54: The Unspoken "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


Michael J. Ryan, a professor of zoology, didnt call his forthcoming book, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Frog Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask), but he sure could have. For 40 years, Ryan has studied the tiny tungara frog, mostly on the tropical Barro Colorado Island in Panama. The narrative of the tungara frogs sex life, Ryan writes in A Taste for the Beautiful, the actual title of his forthcoming book, was uncovered, during 186 consecutive nights of watching everything these frogs did from sundown to sunupmore than 1,000 of them, all individually marked so I could tell them apart, record the males voices, measure how often they mated, and figure out just what attracted females to a particular male.

Ryan did indeed figure out what turned on the female frogs, a sexy call of whines and chucks. For Ryan, the frogs seductive call opened a panoramic window on mating habits across the animal kingdom. Darwin had it right that evolution was served by sexual selection, Ryan says, once scientists, like himself, exposed the biological components, down to the genes, behind animals preferences for fanciful traits in potential mates, most famously, of course, the lush blue fan that

Love, Death, and Other Forgotten Traditions - Issue 54: The Unspoken "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


The science-fiction writer Robert Heinlein once wrote, Each generation thinks it invented sex. He was presumably referring to the pride each generation takes in defining its own sexual practices and ethics. But his comment hit the mark in another sense: Every generation has to reinvent sex because the previous generation did a lousy job of teaching it.

In the United States, the conversations we have with our children about sex are often awkward, limited, and brimming with euphemism. At school, if kids are lucky enough to live in a state that allows it, theyll get something like 10 total hours of sex education.1 If theyre less lucky, theyll instead experience the curious phenomenon of abstinence-only education, in which the goal is to avoid transmitting any information at all. In addition to being counterproductivepotentially leading to higher rates of teen pregnancy2 and sexually transmitted illnesses3this practice is strange. Compare it to the practices of many small-scale societies, where children first learn about sex by observing their parents!

Men Are Better At Maps Until Women Take This Course - Issue 54: The Unspoken "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


Sheryl Sorby, a professor of engineering education at Ohio State University, was used to getting As. For as long as she could remember, she found academics a breeze. She excelled in math and science in particular, but I never thought there was a subject I couldnt do, she says matter-of-factly.

So when she started engineering school, she was surprised to struggle in a course most of her counterparts considered easy: Engineering graphics. Its a first-year course that sounds a bit like a glorified drawing class to a non-engineer.

The hardest part is orthogonal projection, a fundamental engineering task. Given a top, front, and side view of an object, engineers must be able to mentally synthesize two-dimensional representations into a three-dimensional object. Its easyif youre good at what psychologists call mental rotation.

Sorby wasnt. To her surprise and confusion, she found herself overwhelmed. It was the first time I wasnt able to do something in a classroom, she says. I didnt realize I had poor spatial skills.

A Modest Proposal for Thanksgiving - Facts So Romantic "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

European Law Claims to Protect Consumers By Blocking the Web "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Last week the European Parliament passed a new Consumer Protection Regulation [PDF] that allows national consumer authorities to order ISPs, web hosts and domain registries to block or delete websites... all without a court order. The websites targeted are those that allegedly infringe European consumer law. But European consumer law has some perplexing provisions that have drawn ridicule, including a compulsory warning against children blowing up balloons unsupervised and a restriction on abnormally curved bananas. Because of these, the range of websites that could be censored is both vast and uncertain.

The Consumer Protection Regulation provides in Article 8(3)(e) that consumer protection authorities must have the power:

where no other effective means are available to bring about the cessation or the prohibition of the infringement including by requesting a third party or other public authority to implement such measures, in order to prevent the risk of serious harm to the collective interests of consumers:

  • to remove content or restrict access to an online interface or to order the explicit display of a warning to consumers when accessing the online interface;
  • to order a hosting service provider to remove, disable or restrict the access to an online interface; or
  • where appropriate, order domain registries or registrars to delete a fully qualified domain name and allow the competent authority concerned to register it;

The risks of unelected public authorities being given the power to block websites was powerfully demonstrated in 2014, when the Australian company regulator ASIC accidentally blocked 250,000 websites in an attempt to block just a handful of sites alleged to be defrauding Australian consumers. 

This likelihood of unlawful overblocking is just one of the reasons that the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression and Opinion has underlined how web blocking often contravenes international human ri...

Digital Panel Meter Tear Down "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Big Clive] had some 22mm digital AC voltmeters, made to put in a panel. There was a time when this would have been a significant pain, since it required you to make a large square hole. Of course, in a world of CNC and 3D printers that isnt as big a deal as it used to be, but the ones [Clive] has are nice because having a round footprint you can drill a hole for them with a hole saw or a stepped bit. Of course, he wasnt satisfied to just use these inexpensive meters. He had to tear one apart to look inside. You can see his review and teardown in the video below. The meters are available in a range of AC voltages, although [Clive] didnt think the ones he had would safely handle their rated maximum.

Inside, the modules reminded us of cordwood construction in a way. Most of the electronics are on a small round board. But several components connect to the board and the bottom cap in a vertical orientation. The meters are available in several colors, but [Clive] likes the red ones as they appear brighter than the others. The voltage reading compared favorably to a Fluke meter.

Russia to the United Nations: Dont Try to Stop Us From Building Killer Robots "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The UN attempt to regulate AI is doomed to failure. If the USA doesnt veto, and im sure it would, China and Russia will.


UN efforts to limit or regulate military AI may be failing before they even begin.

Arms control advocates had reason for hope when scores of countries met at the United Nations in Geneva last week to discuss the future of lethal autonomous weapons systems, or LAWS. Unlike previous meetings, this one involved a Group of Governmental Experts, a big bump in diplomatic formality and consequence, and those experts had a mandate to better define lethal autonomy in weapons. But hopes for even a small first step toward restricting killer robots were dashed as the meeting unfolded. Russia announced that it would adhere to no international ban, moratorium or regulation on such weapons. Complicating the issue, the meeting was run in a way that made any meaningful progress toward defining (and thus eventually regulating) LAWS nearly impossible. Multiple attendees pointed out that that played directly toward Russias interests.

Russias Nov. 10 statement amounts to a lawyerly attempt to undermine any progress toward a ban. It argues that defining lethal autonomous robots is too hard, not yet necessary, and a threat to legitimate technology development.

Toyota Gets Back Into Humanoid Robots With New T-HR3 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

It's been about a decade, but Toyota is finally doing humanoid robots again Image: Toyota Toyota's new T-HR3 humanoid robot.

Toyota has announced the T-HR3, a brand-new, third-generation humanoid robot. Its 1.5-meter tall, weighs 75 kilograms, and has 32 degrees of torque-controlled freedom plus a pair of 10 fingered hands. At first glance, it appears to be very capable, with excellent balance and coordination, and Toyota has decided to approach autonomy by keeping a human in the loop inside of a sophisticated, immersive Master Maneuvering System.

As with most flagship robotics projects from large Japanese companies, Toyota has done a very good job of not telling anyone about it until theyre good and ready, meaning that all we have to go on at the moment is a press release and some basic specs and videos. Weve got those to share, along with some thoughts on what this robot is all about, below.

From the press release:

Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) today revealed T-HR3, the company's third generation humanoid robot. Toyota's latest robotics platform, designed and developed by Toyota's Partner Robot Division, will explore new technologies for safely managing physical interactions between robots and their surroundings, as well as a new remote maneuvering system that mirrors user movements to the robot.

T-HR3 reflects Toyota's broad-based exploration of how advanced technologies can help to meet people's unique mobility needs. T-HR3 represents an evolution from previous generation instrument-playing humanoid robots, which were created to test the precise positioning of joints and pre-programmed movements

Were trying to figure out exactly what the third generation refers to. There were a couple different versions of Toyotas musical humanoid partner robots from the 2000s; the first one of these could play the trumpet, and was introduced in 2003:

The second could play the violin, and had more muscular legs and significantly better hair:

Theres also this robot, though, which appears to have a completely different set of legs (and a massive battery pack) to enable much more dynamic movements:

NSA Internet Surveillance Under Section 702 Violates the First Amendment "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The First Amendment is too often overlooked in discussions of the National Security Agencys vast surveillance authorities. But as Congress considers whether to reauthorize Section 702 of FISA this winter, we must remember that its not just our Fourth Amendment rights to privacy that are in the crosshairs, but also our First Amendment rights. These rights to anonymously speak, associate, access information, and engage in political activism are the bedrock of our democracy, and theyre endangered by the NSAs pervasive surveillance.

The NSA uses Section 702 to justify ongoing programs to siphon off copies of vast amounts of our communications directly from the Internet backbone as well as require system-wide searches across the information collected by major Internet companies like Google, Facebook, and Apple. 

So how does the First Amendment come to apply to mass surveillance? To understand this, we need to begin with a little history of the civil rights movement. 

As part of the backlash to the Supreme Courts ruling striking down segregation in schools, the Attorney General of Alabama, John Patterson, brought a lawsuit against a leading civil rights organization, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The lawsuit alleged that the NAACP violated a state law requiring foreign corporations to file certain paperwork and get approval before practicing business in Alabama. The NAACP is a nonprofit membership organization; it didnt file the paperwork because it believed it was exempt. While the NAACP fought the suit, the state issued a subpoena demanding detailed records from the NAACP, including membership lists and bank records. The NAACP refused to surrender its membership lists, fearing retaliatory consequences for its members. Because of this refusal, the court fined the NAACP $10,000, which after five days was raised to $100,000. The NAACP continued to fight the order for two years until the Supreme Court took up the issue, never surrendering its membership lists.

Ultimately the NAACP was vindicated. The Supreme Court recognized that the First Amendment protected the associational privacy interests of NAACP members. It directly recognized that freely associating for advocacy or other purposes is a fundamental right. It noted that state invasions of privacy could infringe on that right: It is beyond debate that freedom to engage in association for the advancement of beliefs and ideas is an inseparable aspect of the "liberty" assured by the Due Process Clau...

The FCC has never defended Net Neutrality "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

This op-ed by a "net neutrality expert" claims the FCC has always defended "net neutrality". It's garbage.

This wrong on its face. It imagines decades ago that the FCC inshrined some plaque on the wall stating principles that subsequent FCC commissioners have diligently followed. The opposite is true. FCC commissioners are a chaotic bunch, with different interests, influenced (i.e. "lobbied" or "bribed") by different telecommunications/Internet companies. Rather than following a principle, their Internet regulatory actions have been ad hoc and arbitrary -- for decades.

Sure, you can cherry pick some of those regulatory actions as fitting a "net neutrality" narrative, but most actions don't fit that narrative, and there have been gross net neutrality violations that the FCC has ignored.


There are gross violations going on right now that the FCC is allowing. Most egregiously is the "zero-rating" of video traffic on T-Mobile. This is a clear violation of the principles of net neutrality, yet the FCC is allowing it -- despite official "net neutrality" rules in place.

The op-ed above claims that "this [net neutrality] principle was built into the architecture of the Internet". The opposite is true. Traffic discrimination was built into the architecture since the beginning. If you don't believe me, read RFC 791 and the "precedence" field.

More concretely, from the beginning of the Internet as we know it (the 1990s), CDNs (content delivery networks) have provided a fast-lane for customers willing to pay for it. These CDNs are so important that the Internet wouldn't work without them.

I just traced the route of my CNN live stream. It comes from a server 5 miles away, instead of CNN's headquarters 2500 miles away. That server is located inside Comcast's network, because CNN pays Comcast a lot of money to get a fast-lane to Comcast's customers.

The reason these egregious net net violations exist is because it's in the interests of customers. Moving content closer to customers helps. Re-prioritizing (and charging less for) high-bandwidth video over cell networks helps customers.

You might say it's okay that the FCC bends net neutrality rules when it benefits consumers, but that's garbage. Net neutrality claims these principles are sacred and should never be violated. Obviously, that's not true -- they should be violated when it benefits consumers. This means what net neutrality is really saying is that ISPs can't be trusted to allows act to benefit consumers, and therefore need government oversight. Well, if that's your principle, then...

Can Tech Moguls Cure What Ails Medicine? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A dash of start-up moxie could speed up biomedical innovation Photo: Dave Thompson/AFP/Getty Images

Who will invent tomorrows life-saving and life-extending medicines? Not medical schools. Not research physicians. Not biologists.

Computer people.

Really? The geeks will save us? Maybe. Spanning diseases as diverse as cancer and malaria, in the gnarly fields of memory extension and cognitive decline, electrical engineers and computer scientists are revitalizing and reshaping the face of biomedical innovation.

Part of the reason is desperation. Biomedical innovators are experiencing a crisis in performance. For decades, vast increases in spending on traditional forms of medical research have resulted in fewer effective drugs or therapies.

The stagnation of biomedical innovation is an invitation to wealthy digital innovators to insist they can do better. In his second book, Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future, Peter Thiel, a well-known venture capitalist, argues that health researchers are overly cautious, too prone to asking permission from health bureaucrats, and infatuated with publishing studies instead of contributing to beneficial health outcomes.

These frustrations prompted Thiel, in 2016, to fund unregulated human trials for a herpes vaccine in the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Because digital innovators rarely face federal regulations, they suspect that government tends to cripple biomedical creativity. As evidence, they point to weak results by the National Institutes of Health, which spends a staggering US $30 billion a year on research.

Forged in the early 1960s, the paradigm for pharmaceutical innovation has remained virtually unchanged for nearly 50 years, Kenneth Kaitin, director of the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development, has written. During a period when most other research-based industries have made frequent and often sweeping modifications to their R&D processes, the pharmaceutical sector continues to utilize a drug development process that is slow, inefficient, risky, and expensive.

Computer people think they can fix a broken process. One reason: The success of...

Why "man -w" will Sometimes Print "gimme gimme gimme" "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Spotted at Lobsters is a thread about a stackoverflow question on man; why does running "man -w" report "gimme gimme gimme" when run at 00:30?

This gets this response:

Pretty much the whole story is in the commit. The maintainer of man is a good friend of mine, and one day six years ago I jokingly said to him that if you invoke man after midnight it should print "gimme gimme gimme", because of the Abba song called "Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight":

Well, he did actually put it in. A few people were amused to discover it, and we mostly forgot about it until today.

A Passion for the Best is in Mechanical Keyboards "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

There is an entire subculture of people fascinated by computer keyboards. While the majority of the population is content with whatever keyboard came with their computer or is supplied by their employer usually the bottom basement squishy membrane keyboards there are a small group of keyboard enthusiasts diving into custom keycaps, switch mods, diode matrices, and full-blown ground-up creations.

Ariane Nazemi is one of these mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. At the 2017 Hackaday Superconference, he quite literally lugged out a Compaq with its beautiful brominated keycaps, and brought out the IBM Model M buckling spring keyboard.

Awash in Artificial Light, the World Gets 2 Percent Brighter Each Year "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Making outdoor lighting more efficient doesn't reduce light pollutionit encourages people to use more light Gif: Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit/Johnson Space Center/NASA These photos from 2010 and 2015 show changes in outdoor lighting in Calgary, Canada. In the 2015 photo, many new areas on the edge of Calgary are lit up. Some neighborhoods have also switched from orange sodium lamps to white LED lamps.

Around the world, more lights keep being switched on. A new analysis of satellite data from the past four years shows that the total acreage lit by artificial light at night increased by an average of 2.2 percent a year. The brightness of the areas lit at the start of the study also increased by the same rate2.2 percent annuallyaround the globe.

That growth is disappointing, says Christopher Kyba of the GFZ German Research Center for Geoscience in Potsdam. A member of the International Dark-Sky Association, he had hoped that efforts to switch outdoor lighting from sodium lamps to efficient LEDs would reverse the loss of the night.

Instead, he says, "the use of artificial lighting is increasing and we're losing more and more of the night on a planetary scale."

Light pollution was an issue even before LEDs, and it wasn't just astronomers who complained. City-dwellers were annoyed by the glare from bright lights shining in their windows. Naturalists found that artificial lights were affecting animals including insects, bats, and sea turtles. In 2012, the European Union launched the Loss of the Night Network to monitor environmental effects of outdoor lighting.

The improvements in energy efficiency brought by LED street lights are clear. But the extent of artificial lighting at night has been hard to monitor. Photos from military weather satellite photos showed the global extent of artificial lighting, but the cameras were not calibrated to measure brightness and were prone to changes in sensitivity.

That changed after the October 2011 launch of a NOAA satellite carrying the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suitea set of instruments that includes a sensor calibrated to measure nighttime radiance at wavelengths from 500 to 900 nanometers. That sensor's main pur...

Patent Lawyers Media Comes to Grips With the End of Software Patents "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Federal Circuit always says no to software patents (this year at least) and the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) rejects any petitions for it to deal with such matters

Will Any Software Patents Survive?

Summary: The reality of the matter is grim for software patents and the patent microcosm, borrowing the media as usual, tries to give false hopes by insinuating that the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) may overturn Alice quite soon

THE battle in the courtroom is over. Software patents are pretty much over. So the battle has been taken to the press, where the patent industry places its lies and marketing on an almost daily basis. We keep track of all this.

So the battle has been taken to the press, where the patent industry places its lies and marketing on an almost daily basis.Yesterday/today, using the word survive in the headline (inverting narratives, wherein the aggressor merely survives or is attacked by the defendant), the high-factor media of lawyers speaks of Alice and asks, Will Any Software Patents Survive?

Here is the outline:

In his Patent and Trademark Law column, Robert L. Maier writes: In recent weeks, the Federal Circuit has continued to affirm district court decisions finding software-related patents invalid for failure to meet the patentable subject matter requirement of 35 U.S.C. 101. At the same time, a petition for certiorari to the Supreme Court was filed seeking to challenge the availability of this very defensea petition that, if heard by the Supreme Court, could have dramatic implications for U.S. patent litigation.

They have been saying things like these for a number of months, but it never materialises. SCOTUS wont be revisiting the subject of software patents any time soon (if ever). We wrote about this dozens of times before. The above is one of those real soon now prophecies/narratives (akin to Team UPCs); they just try to give a glimmer of hope to clients and convince them to carry on pursuing software patents.

What does all this say about the patent law firms? Or about the media? Watch this...

Experts found a way to exploit HP Enterprise printers to hack into company networks "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Researchers at FoxGlove Security have found a potentially serious remote code execution vulnerability in some of HPs enterprise printers. 

HP dedicates significant efforts in designing secure printing systems, a recent marketing campaign launched by the firm shows the dangers of vulnerable printers for corporate networks.

HP launched new enterprise LaserJet printers back in 2015 and introduced several security improvements across the time.

Experts from FoxGlove Security tested an HP PageWide Enterprise 586dn multi-functional printer (MFP) and an HP LaserJet Enterprise M553n printer.

HP printers hacking

The team used a hacking tool dubbed PRET (PRinter Exploitation Toolkit) developed by researchers from Ruhr-Universitt Bochum in Germany.

At the time, the tool was used by the author to find security vulnerabilities in 20 printer models manufactured by Dell, Brother, Konica, Samsung, HP, OKI, and Lexmark.

The printers were affected by flaws related to common printing languages, PostScript and PJL, used in most laser printers. The flaws are not a novelty, according to the experts, they have existed for decades.

Indian Grad Sues Oxford Uni After 17 Years for not Getting Top Grades "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

An Oxford graduate's failure to get a top degree cost him a lucrative legal career, the High Court has heard.

Faiz Siddiqui alleges "inadequate" teaching on his modern history course resulted in him getting a low upper second degree in June 2000. He blames staff being absent on sabbatical leave and is suing the university for 1m. Oxford denies negligence and causation and says the case is "massively" outside the legal time limit.He said: "Whilst a 2:1 degree from Oxford might rightly seem like a tremendous achievement to most, it fell significantly short of Mr Siddiqui's expectations and was, to him, a huge disappointment."

Mr Mallalieu said his employment history in legal and tax roles was "frankly poor" and he was now unemployed, rather than having a career at the tax bar in England or a major US law firm. Mr Siddiqui also said his clinical depression and insomnia have been significantly exacerbated by his "inexplicable failure". Julian Milford, for Oxford University, told the court Mr Siddiqui complained about insufficient resources, but had only described the teaching as "a little bit dull".

Perhaps he might find employment with "This is Windows calling..."

Radio Apocalypse: The GWEN System "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Recent developments on the world political stage have brought the destructive potential of electromagnetic pulses (EMP) to the fore, and people seem to have internalized the threat posed by a single thermonuclear weapon. Its common knowledge that one bomb deployed at a high enough altitude can cause a rapid and powerful pulse of electrical and magnetic fields capable of destroying everything electrical on the ground below, sending civilization back to the 1800s in the blink of an eye.

Things are rarely as simple as the media portray, of course, and this is especially true when a phenomenon with complex physics is involved. But even in the early days of the Atomic Age, the destructive potential of EMP was understood, and allowances for it were made in designing strategic systems. Nowhere else was EMP more of a threat than to the complex web of communication systems linking far-flung strategic assets with central command and control apparatus. In the United States, one of the many hardened communications networks was dubbed the Groundwave Emergency Network, or GWEN, and the story of its fairly rapid rise and fall is an interesting case study in how nations mount technical responses to threats, both real and perceived.

Reliability Through Physics

GWEN began as a patch for a perceived gap in the communications network connecting the countrys strategic nuclear assets primarily the launch control centers (LCC) of the ballistic missile launch facilities to the National Command Authority, which is basically the president. Like all strategic communications systems, GWEN was designed to incorporate best practices for surviving the electromagnetic effects of an EMP. But GWEN had another mission.

Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) Foes Manipulate the Facts to Belittle the Impact of PTAB "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Bulb

Summary: In an effort to sabotage PTAB with its inter partes reviews the patent microcosm is organising one-sided events that slam PTABs legitimacy and misrepresent statistics

THE Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) is loved by everyone except those whose entire business [sic] model is litigation. This isnt exactly surprising and hopefully the Justices have already grasped that. In a matter of months they will likely cement PTABs role in the USPTO.

The patent industry isnt happy. Its not supposed to be happy. Its a parasite.

A short while ago Managing IP published Michael Shore vows to take a wrecking ball to the IPR system an article in which Michael Shore, an architect of a scam or a sham (he schemed to misuse tribal immunity), is portrayed as anything but a con artist. Speaking to the aggressors and sharks at IP Dealmakers Forum, he thinks this behaviour of his is normal and acceptable:

The lawyer behind Allergans controversial transfer of patents to a Native American tribe said at the IP Dealmakers Forum that other companies are lining up to do deals and that universities endowment funds are interested in getting involved. Shore outlined why he believed these types of deals are here to stay

Its one of those echo chamber-type events. Its stacked/loaded with PTAB foes. These people arent doing so well. Their business is certainly diminishing. It looks, for example, like a lot of IAM staff left quite recently. About half the names (of writers) are gone in just a matter of months. Is this patent trolls lobby dying with the trolls?

Sci-Hub Loses Domain Names, But Remains Resilient "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

While Sci-Hub is praised by thousands of researchers and academics around the world, copyright holders are doing everything in their power to wipe the site from the web.

Following a $15 million defeat against Elsevier in June, the American Chemical Society won a default judgment of $4.8 million in copyright damages earlier this month.

The publisher was further granted a broad injunction, requiring various third-party services to stop providing access to the site. This includes domain registries, which have the power to suspend domains worldwide if needed.

Yesterday, several of Sci-Hubs domain names became unreachable. While the site had some issues in recent weeks, several people noticed that the present problems are more permanent.

Sci-hub.io, sci-hub.cc, and sci-hub.ac now have the infamous serverhold status which suggests that the responsible registries intervened. The status, which has been used previously when domain names are flagged for copyright issues, strips domains of their DNS entries.

Serverhold

This effectively means that the domain names in question have been rendered useless. However, history has also shown that Sci-Hubs operator Alexandra Elbakyan doesnt easily back down. Quite the contrary.

In a message posted on the sites VK page and Twitter, the operator points out that users can update their DNS servers to the IP-addresses 80.82.77.83 and 80.82.77.84, to access it freely again. This rigorous measure will direct all domain name lookups through Sci-Hubs servers.

Sci-Hubs tweet

In addition, the Sci-Hub.bz domain and the .onion address on the Tor network still appear to work just fine for most people.

Its clear that Ukraine-born Elbakyan has no intention of throwing in the towel. By providing free access to published research, she sees it as simply...

Nanoscale Magnetic Circuits Expand Into Three Dimensions "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Researchers have created a nanoscale magnetic circuit that can send along bits of information in three dimensions Illustration: Ddalo Sanz-Hernndez This illustration shows the steps to fabricate a new 3D magnetic circuit. In steps 1 and 2, an electron microscope and gas injector print a scaffold onto a silicon substrate. In step 3, the scaffold is covered with a magnetic material. In step 4, a laser reads the magnetic information contained within the structure.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge in the UK have broken the paradigm of two-dimensional circuits used to store and transmit data and created a nanoscale magnetic circuit that can send along bits of information in three dimensions.

These new magnetic-based circuits have the potential to form architectures where logic and memory circuits are merged together, according to the researchers. This merger could reduce the energy required for data transfer associated with any logic operation and could prove to be a boon for battery-powered applications, such as mobile phones or the Internet of Things.

In traditional circuits, electrons are pushed around conducting tracks, which are gated using transistors. The electrons flow depending on which transistors are opened or closed, allowing information to be processed and stored. When electrons move through the material in this traditional architecture, they experience resistance due to collisions with atoms in the conducting tracks.

In magnetic circuits such as the ones used in this work, which is described in the journal ACS Nano , the feature of electrons used to encode information is not their charge, but their spina quantum-mechanical property.

The difference between a standard and a magnetic system can be visualized in a simple way by comparing people running on a stadium track versus a crowd wave at the grandstand, explained coauthor Ddalo Sanz-Hernndez. In a traditional system, electrons are physically moving, like people running, and collide with obstacles along their way. In magnetic systems such as these, in analogy to a crowd wave, people do not need to move, but transmit the information by interacting with their neighbours in a very efficient way.

There are two steps to create the circuit, according to coauthor Ama...

Brendan Gregg introduces a set of BPF-based tracing tools on opensource.com. "Traditional analysis of filesystem performance focuses on block I/O statisticswhat you commonly see printed by the iostat(1) tool and plotted by many performance-monitoring GUIs. Those statistics show how the disks are performing, but not really the filesystem. Often you care more about the filesystem's performance than the disks, since it's the filesystem that applications make requests to and wait for. And the performance of filesystems can be quite different from that of disks! Filesystems may serve reads entirely from memory cache and also populate that cache via a read-ahead algorithm and for write-back caching. xfsslower shows filesystem performancewhat the applications directly experience."

Uber Paid Hackers to Delete Stolen Data on 57 Million People "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Uber Paid Hackers to Keep Massive Cyberattack Quiet

Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year. This week, the ride-hailing firm ousted its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps, which included a $100,000 payment to the attackers.

Compromised data from the October 2016 attack included names, email addresses and phone numbers of 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company told Bloomberg on Tuesday. The personal information of about 7 million drivers was accessed as well, including some 600,000 U.S. driver's license numbers. No Social Security numbers, credit card information, trip location details or other data were taken, Uber said.

"None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it." - Dara Khosrowshahi

At the time of the incident, Uber was negotiating with U.S. regulators investigating separate claims of privacy violations. Uber now says it had a legal obligation to report the hack to regulators and to drivers whose license numbers were taken. Instead, the company paid hackers to delete the data and keep the breach quiet. Uber said it believes the information was never used but declined to disclose the identities of the attackers.
