Allies don't do that kind of thing...

- Have the system track additional satellites, compare to the Galileo, Glonass, and BaiDu systems.
- Analyse signal strength, jitter, and noise of signals. That device in the trunk will become much more expensive if it has to properly simulate a GPS satellite including atmospheric ally induced noise.
Climate change science has already proved that most people can't distinguish opinion and expertise.
Now how did this relate to GPS hacking again?
@OP, are any of your claims actual facts, or do you just play the game of 'spot what I just made up' for your entertainment'? Hillary Clinton was I the limelight for decades, you can bet that countless hours of research went into finding any possible dirt on her in the run-up to the elections, so why do you claim there is (some handwaving now) some mysterious unknown juicy evil stuff on Hillary waiting to be discovered?
In dubio pro reo, so I'll assume the OP is not a paid shill for the GRU. Or (some handwaving again) is he?
there should be a level playing file for all participants / parties. If one team cheats, they should be persecuted to protect the democratic process. This is not because you believe the right or wrong party won, but because you believe in democracy!
Some Russian operatives tried to cheat - go get them and try to make sure this won't happen again. This should be a no-brainer for anyone believing in the democratic process, right up there with the need to accept the outcome of a democratic election even if you don't personally like it.
I don't know why you make this claim about the cited article. The abstract seems to discuss the scientific consensus about climate warming (towards a new equilibrium that may be some 1.6 K warmer), as assessed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Maybe the authors ruined their reputation previously, but in the cited work they seem to just summarize reviewed scientific results.
I like the fact that the police in this case specifically targeted the bad guys with surveillance - and succeeded. But in the bigger picture, these efforts are futile, because the invisible hand of the market will balance supply and demand and the long war on drugs does not seem to make a difference on the demand side.
Time to fix the policy on drugs. The government should not start a war against its people if they want to enjoy their addiction, be it for alcohol (I am looking at you, average TheReg commentard), nicotine, equasy, or cocaine. The resources wasted on the fight against drugs would be more productive elsewhere.
The toxicity of chemicals in the Chemical Safety Data Sheet (CSDS) is given as LD50 value (lethal dose causing 50% mortality). I assume the additional 7% die from natural causes.
The big question I didn't see addressed in the article is whether the 'predictive power' was evaluated based on chemicals that were part of the training data (making it more of a recognition AI) or whether the predictions were made for compounds that were not part of the training data.
That's to remind the users to Put It Back Where It Belongs after use. Nifty, isn't it?
Now who would that be? I would not consider myself average (who does), but having grown up in a 'social market democracy' and being a proponent of government controlled redistribution (progressive taxes, welfare) and socially responsible regulation you can probably throw me into that pool.
Maybe, next time, check your prejudice against real people you know. Or if you don't know anybody that would fit the bill, go out and meet some - encountering new ideas won't shrink your intelligence even if those ideas are connected to socialism.
While the above statement is logically true, a quick look into the history books tells us that worker unionization is strongly correlated to worker's rights. Before unionization, workers had almost no power to influence their own working conditions and this correlation is still very strong today.
So in the big picture of things, union rights == worker's rights.
How does that work exactly? Did I miss the invite?
So then you do the dishes and bring out the garbage, ...
That's the deal I try to get when I hear this particular argument..
if the content requires it. Sometimes you just want the text, which explains the great success of the good old printed book. Sometimes you want sound, or moving pictures, or VR. Just find the right medium for your job and accept that others may prefer a different medium / file format.
Now how would you address that issue? Maybe hire IBM to create a database (don't forget to create a sensibly graded system for those of mixed ancestry), make them wear a star so they can be recognized, ...? Of course the same critique applies to the OP with his 5 beautiful upvotes. Your racist comments disgust me.
Now wheres the Grammar Nazi when you need him.
It was a shitty user interface when it was introduced and it will still be a shitty user interface in a thousand years.
(1) It eats up lots of screen space.
(2) It doesn't allow you to remove functions you don't need.
(3) All the stuff you don't need clutter the interface and make it hard to quickly find the stuff you actually need.
(4) The ribbon layout changes when you resize the window, making it even harder to find the stuff you need.
The useful part of the old menu system was that you could remove the 90% stuff you would not need. The result was a single, concise menu bar with everything you regularly use, easily accessible by a single mouse motion. They broke it. I still don't understand why.
Right, they officially dropped 4 zeros and then, to confuse the innocent tourists, they continued to give prices in thousands of Ron. Pleasant surprise, when you pull the big bill to pay the totally overpriced soft drink, just to receive 90% back as your change. Or not, because as a stupid tourist you totally deserve to overpay.
You are right for all the wrong reasons: cold fusion was demonstrated in 2005 using the pyroelectric effect to accelerate deuterium atoms into a deuterium target (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyroelectric_fusion). Unfortunately, this concept doesn't seem suited to generate meaningful amounts of fusion energy.
As for the rest of the cold fusion claims, they seem to have moved from the scientific fraud stage (delusional chemists having trouble with nuclear physics measurements) to the financial fraud stage (delusional chemists collecting M$ to build cold fusion power plants). Come back when one of those demonstrator power plants produces any meaningful quantity of power. Until then, I'll continue to laugh at your cold fusion.
"Next on the chopping block (hopefully): spooky action at a distance."
It's not spooky, it's just a manifestation of the wave nature of matter. You presumably have no trouble believing your eyes when you see a diffraction pattern (get a laser pointer if your teacher never showed it to you). What you see is the transversal wave interference. Your spooky action is based on the longitudinal wave properties (along the propagation direction). No magic, just very long and regular particle waves doing their thing.
It really feels like they bring the quantum uncertainty alive. I updated my computer over lunch yesterday and afterwards some recently edited files were just gone. It was subtle enough to make me doubt my sanity.
Fortunately, the backed up versions were fine, lost about an hour there (on top of waiting through the bl**dy slow update procedure).
Oh, and I don't run Avast, but some locally mandated Ahn V3 thingy. Don't get me started on that one.
Still holding out on an ancient S3. Even better, I replaced the cracked screen with the one from the broken S3 my wife discarded several years ago (the kids dug that up from under the sofa). That took a screwdriver and mere 20 minutes. A factory reset magically removed all lags and the only real limitation is the small internal memory. So I don't try to run 4 different browsers, 5 mapping apps, and all the Facebook clones.
Every now and then I look at the shiny things around me and decide there is still time. The only pressing reason I see for an update would be to run games (that's what got me the cracked screen - thanks, kids).
Does anybody believe that those 40000 K were estimated to within 1 K precision? I believe the proper conversion should be: 40,000 Kelvin (~ 40 000 degrees Celcius). Or use proper engineering units to give proper significant digits: 40 kC.
Make your better half write down her login passwords in that old calendar. Or, better yet, incorporate them into your password manager. Because you will be held responsible if she can't recover that hotel booking.
Unless you want to be dispassionate about it and consider:
- the cost of imprisonment\
- the decreasing deterrent effect of 'unimaginably' long sentences
- the fact that a decade or two is a very long time and the person coming out of jail is probably a different person than that going in (think back 10 years in your own life ... and you didn't have your life disrupted by prison)
- second chances in life
I'd say some scientists should look at the statistics and inform the judiciary about sensible prison terms. Maybe they already did that in Denmark?
I would expect that lightweight encryption could be very useful. Security is proportional to the cost of breaking in. It's not a binary function of unhackable versus hackable; your secure front door will just force the intruders to go through the windows or the walls.
To maximize its effectiveness, lightweight encryption should be indistinguishable from heavyweight encryption. If the bad actor cannot predict the resources required to break in, it will raise his cost.
Indeed, and a good part of real anger was foment es by fake news. The brilliant strategy of C.A. et al. was to figure out how to serve personalized 'news' that were tailored to fit a person's existing misconceptions.
The fundamental problem of the music industry is easy to see: Once upon a time, there was great technological innovation, allowing every human to spend months' worth of their income into technological devices that would reproduce sounds and music with unprecedented fidelity. Everybody loved it and the industry supplying the music grew and grew and some of the workers in this industry became immensely rich. But the amazing technology got ever better and cheaper, so that every human could listen to music wherever and whenever they wanted, could record their own sounds and music whenever they wanted and share those. Unnecessary to say, it all got a bit boring after a while and humankind decided to spend their hard earned income elsewhere. The End.
The solution: Get over it.
Thanks for the answer ... I guess I'll have to read the full article to understand which assumptions remain :).
as any claim for random number generation, this one is based on underlying assumptions about physical reality and our understanding thereof. You can always postulate hidden variables that would destroy the randomness (when we eventually understand and predict those hidden variables).
Alternatively, you can trust our current understanding of physics and build much simpler quantum detection devices. Avalanche amplification of tunneling events (cf. http://iank.org/trng.html or similar) is a sensible approach. The devil, of course, is in the details of the implementation.
So that reason would be the Microsoft licensing restriction when upgrading earlier Windows versions? Or is there another reason we should be aware of?
Anyways, the problem seems to be based in some lazy programmer choices. At least they are open about it.
Everybody thinks about printers:
Local rules and regulations may apply... So check with your federal trade commission before ordering.
It is unclear to me why the support company requires the licence. If the customers had properly licensed oracle software running, would they not have a right to download and apply the patches? The support company may then take over the hassle of performing the patching but actually never runs the oracle software on its own computers.
There are definitely very few problems where you can't swap a computer algorithm for another computer algorithm (aka AI) and collect fresh grant money/investment.
When I count the headlines, I have to wonder which is th bigger bubble: bitcoins or AI?
This is just an exploratory project, so I expect that they'll be allowed to glue a long nose onto an existing military propulsion system. Also, from the pictures, I'd expect this to be a small scale model, so the pilot and copilot will have to stand in for first and second class passengers.
Due to obvious military applications, rocket technology used to be under government control. Musk and co. change the rules of the game, but it'll take a while until a new division of labor is established.
I don't see the parallel development of different rockets as a problem -- the bigger question is whether the NASA is still capable to properly plan and budget their projects. Falcon heavy was late and over budget -- but you could expect that for rocket science done by amateurs, starting from scratch. NASA supposedly has all the know-how already. Or did all the competent engineers move to private industry by now?
Wow. Let's hope they don't pay the code by the line.
they should re-imagine their brand and sell the 'IBM' moniker to Lenovo. Gotta do it quick, those brand values are fickle things.
Whereas the western countries always played by the same rules, ensuring equal and fair treatment of everyone involved?
Except, they didn't. Check the history books, start with colonialism if you want some egregious examples. That's why the WTO made such a big difference: finally some countries agreed on some common rules and it made all the difference for trade.
The law specifies the oversight required before data can be collected and shared. The problem occurs if there is no proper oversight and some bureaucrats can do whatever they want with whatever data they find.
You are mistaken. Some countries (e.g. Germany) have strong federalistic traditions. From that point of view, it is bizarre that a country can force its regions to stay (Catalonia, Basque country,...). When Bavaria and Baden Würtenberg considered skipping out of the Federal Republic in the late 80s, the discussion was not about whether they can, but only whether is would be practical, sensible, and economically advantageous.
I heard that Great Britain has quite restrictive laws concerning slander. Maybe the CA data vault will deliver rich pickings for British law firms. I'll cheer for the bad guys on this one. No, the other bad guys, silly!
We'll probably end up with less memory sharing and the ability of processes to reserve a core+memory for their security relevant processes. Is there really another way to solve this issue? Finally a good reason to build seriously parallel processor architectures.
Stephen Hawking showed us what you can do with your mind, even if life gives you a really, really hard time. Let him remain an inspiration for generations to come.
In this case, the investors just followed the money, assuming someone else had checked the magic. Holmes was happy to lead them along.
Technology will continue to give us great advances in medical diagnostics and treatment, but it takes a lot of work and time to make each little step. Theranos promised it all at once and right now -- that's usually not how science progresses.
How invigorating, as Teutonic being, to be related with trilobites and echinoderms.
Concerning that blockchain technology, I would personally wait until it reaches the Silurian period - I like my creatures with some backbone and that was notably absent in the Cambrian.
Those polyaromatic hydrocarbons (Pyrenees, etc.) are the thermodynamically (energetically) favored species when you heat carbon rich mixtures. Think candle soot, Diesel engine, etc. This is like the house of cards in its collapsed state - really easy to make if you have cards and gravity. I assume there must be something else in the paper to make it interesting.
And a molecule of life, it isn't. Those typically contain oxygen and nitrogen in addition to carbon an hydrogen and they are much more fragile. That's why dinosaurs readily turn into coal (=PAH), but coal rarely turns into a dinosaur.
I guess there is one way the judges can ensure that congress will get its act together: completely block access of US law enforcement to any data stores outside the US. Congressmen would be working in it Tomorrow.
Or the possessive is is hitting again? Anyways, long live 's, it's entertainment for the ages' ...
there is the little issue, that cars generate (facilitate) a good fraction of GDP by transporting persons and goods to the place where they are needed. Guns seem to have a somewhat smaller economic impact -- except in those exceptional cases of war, where the GDP tends to take the bullet (so to speak).
