    LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. insurer ACE said on Wednesday it was excluding cover for Ebola on some new and renewal policies.

    By Ayman al-Warfalli BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Sitting in one of the last buildings still intact after months of fighting near Benghazi's airport, Libyan army special forces commander Wanis Bukhamada presides over a world of destruction. His forces managed to stop an offensive of Islamist armed groups trying to take the airport in Benina, some 25 km (miles) south of the eastern city -- just one battle in wider chaos gripping the major oil producer three years after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. ......

    osage writes: Several colleagues and I have worked on an open source project for over 20 years under a corporate aegis. Though nothing like Apache, we have a sizable user community and the software is considered one of the de facto standards for what it does. The problem is that we have never been able to attract new, younger programmers, and members of the original set have been forced to find jobs elsewhere or are close to retirement. The corporation has no interest in supporting the software. Thus, in the near future, the project will lose its web site host and be devoid of its developers and maintainers. Our initial attempts to find someone to adopt the software haven't worked. We are looking for suggestions as to what course to pursue. We can't be the only open source project in this position. ...

    KentuckyFC writes: Earth's closest white dwarf is called van Maanen 2 and sits 14 light-years from here. It was discovered by the Dutch astronomer Adriaan van Maanen in 1917, but it was initially hard to classify. That's because its spectra contains lots of heavy elements alongside hydrogen and helium, the usual components of a white dwarf photosphere. In recent years, astronomers have discovered many white dwarfs with similar spectra and shown that the heavy elements come from asteroids raining down onto the surface of the stars. It turns out that all these white dwarfs are orbited by a large planet and an asteroid belt. As the planet orbits, it perturbs the rocky belt, causing asteroids to collide and spiral in toward their parent star. This process is so common that astronomers now use the heavy element spectra as a marker for the presence of extrasolar planets. A re-analysis of van Maanen's work shows that, in hindsight, he was the first to discover the tell-tale signature of extra...

    mwagner writes: Skynet is coming. But not like in the movie: The future of communications is high-altitude solar-powered drones, flying 13 miles above the ground, running microwave wireless equipment, delivering broadband to the whole planet. The articles predicts this technology will replace satellites, fiber, and copper, and fundamentally change the broadband industry. The author predicts a timescale of roughly 20 years — the same amount of time between Arthur C. Clarke predicting geosynchronous satellites and their reality as a commercial business. "Several important technology milestones need to be reached along the way. The drones that will make up Skynet have a lot more in common with satellites than the flippy-flappy helicopter drone thingies that the popular press is fixated on right now. They're really effing BIG, for one thing. And, like satellites, they go up, and stay up, pretty much indefinitely. For that to happen, we need two things: lighter, higher-capacity wirele...

    HughPickens.com writes: Arthur Obermayer, a friend of the Isaac Asimov, writes that he recently rediscovered an unpublished essay by Asimov written in 1959 while cleaning out some old files. Obermayer says it is "as broadly relevant today as when he wrote it. It describes not only the creative process and the nature of creative people but also the kind of environment that promotes creativity." Here's an excerpt from Asimov's essay, which is well worth reading in its entirety: "A person willing to fly in the face of reason, authority, and common sense must be a person of considerable self-assurance. Since he occurs only rarely, he must seem eccentric (in at least that respect) to the rest of us. A person eccentric in one respect is often eccentric in others. Probably more inhibiting than anything else is a feeling of responsibility. The great ideas of the ages have come from people who weren't paid to have great ideas, but were paid to be teachers or patent clerks or petty officials, or...

    sciencehabit writes: Earth is rapidly being wired with fiber-optic cables — inexpensive, flexible strands of silicon dioxide that have revolutionized telecommunications. They've already crisscrossed the planet's oceans, linking every continent but one: Antarctica. Now, fiber optics has arrived at the continent, but to measure ice sheet temperatures rather than carry telecommunication signals. A team of scientists using an innovative fiber-optic cable–based technology has measured temperature changes within and below the ice over 14 months. This technology, they say, offers a powerful new tool to observe and quantify melting at the base of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. ...

Along with the new release, Microsoft is introducing an interesting cadence option for how quickly you will receive new builds. The "ring progression" goes from development, to testing, to release. By being in the slow cadence, you will get more stable builds, but they will arrive less often. By choosing the fast option, it allows you to receive the build on the same day that it is released. As a quick stats update, to date Microsoft has received over 250,000 pieces of feedback through the Windows Feedback tool, 25,381 community forum posts, and 641 suggestions in the Windows Suggestion Box. ...

    Lasrick writes: David Ropeik explores risk-perception psychology and Ebola in the U.S. "[O]fficials are up against the inherently emotional and instinctive nature of risk-perception psychology. Pioneering research on this subject by Paul Slovic, Baruch Fischhoff, and others, vast research on human cognition by Daniel Kahneman and colleagues, and research on the brain's fear response by neuroscientists Joseph LeDoux, Elizabeth Phelps, and others, all make abundantly clear that the perception of risk is not simply a matter of the facts, but more a matter of how those facts feel. ... People worry more about risks that are new and unfamiliar. People worry more about risks that cause greater pain and suffering. People worry more about threats against which we feel powerless, like a disease for which there is no vaccine and which has a high fatality rate if you get it. And people worry more about threats the more available they are to their consciousness—that is, the more aware people ...

    An anonymous reader writes: After rumors broke last week, Magic Leap has officially closed the deal on a $542 million Series B investment led by Google. The company has been extremely tight-lipped about what they're working on, but some digging reveals it is most likely an augmented reality wearable that uses a lightfield display. "Using our Dynamic Digitized Lightfield Signal, imagine being able to generate images indistinguishable from real objects and then being able to place those images seamlessly into the real world," the company teases. Having closed an investment round, Magic Leap is now soliciting developers to create for their platform and hiring a huge swath of positions. ...

    New submitter Kkloe writes: Wired is running a profile of a gadget called Signet, which is trying to bring postage stamps into the age of high technology. Quoting: "At its core, it is a digital stamp and an app. If you want to send a parcel, you'd simply stamp it with a device that uses a laser to etch it with your name and a unique identifying pattern. After that, the USPS would pick up your package; from there, the app would prompt you to provide the name of the person you're trying to reach." I'm curious whether such a finely-detailed etching can even survive a journey. How far can you expect it to travel before all the handling and sorting make the mark unreadable to the sorting machines in the delivery office? Then you'd have to worry the post office would mark it as a fraudulent stamp (as someone has to pay for the shipping in some way) and either return it or throw it away. ...

    This is a "wet" submarine. It doesn't try to keep water out. You wear SCUBA gear while pedaling it. And yes, it is powered by a person pushing pedals. That motion, through a drive train, makes manta-style wings flap. This explains the name, since rays are Batoids, and this sub is a fake Batoid, not a real one. It's a beautiful piece of work, and Martin Plazyk is obviously proud to show it off. He and his father, Bruce, operate as Faux Fish Technologies.

    Seven months on, loved ones of passengers on a missing Malaysian airliner derive what comfort they can going forward from whatâ??s left behind. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 mostly Chinese people on board, disappeared on March 8 about an hour into a routine journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the worldâ??s greatest aviation mystery. More than two dozen countries have been involved in the air, sea and underwater search for the Boeing 777 but months of sorties failed to turn up any trace - even after narrowing the search area to the southern Indian Ocean - long after batteries on the black box voice and data recorders had gone flat.

    Protests in Hong Kong continue after tens of thousands of people defied calls for them to dismantle their camps and return home. Demonstrations fanned out to more neighborhoods after police tried to disperse crowds using batons and tear gas early Monday morning. Riot police later withdrew. The pro-democracy protesters are angry at China for limiting their choice in Hong Kong's 2017 leadership elections. Demonstrators used umbrellas to protect themselves from tear gas overnight and to ward off the sweltering sun as they continued their sit-in throughout the day. That gave rise to the movement?s name?The Umbrella Revolution. --Thea Breite (17 photos total)

    THE HORROR CONTINUES!!!! We got two more good weeks of frights, boils, ghouls, and every worm in between. I got nothing more to add after last week's announcement other than I love y'all and hope you continue to follow my work. I'm gonna work on a better main site for that kind of news. PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    AAA! This is creepy!! But enough Halloween fun, I got some news to share with you. Gunshow will stop at the end of the year. If this seems sudden, it is because I just decided it a couple of days ago. Here is a longer post about what why when where etc. But right now, we are still in the scary horror mode and have two more months to have fun. So let's have a lot of it (fun).PATREON! + BACK!  ...

    The HORROR!!! Continues.... This one is called "Splinter" but there is another movie called "Splinter" that was made in 2008 near where I used to live in Oklahoma City. They even had a premiere at the Art Gallery downtown for it. It's a really decent body horror/monster flick. Look it up however you can!! BOO!!!! SEE YOU THURSDAY!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    All this horror reminds me of a really good student film from earlier this year that is worth a watch: "There's a Man in the Woods."PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    Wow this month of horror keeps on going. I can't wait to disgust you further.PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    ha ha ha time for fun horror comics all month!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    OCTOBER COMES UPON US!!! And then it will be time for unfunny horror comics from Gunshow! Prepare!!!! To Not laugh all month!!!!!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    You can't make me apologize for this joke!!! I shan't!!! *swings out window on chandelier* PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    Based on a true frikkin story! I found that old penny but did not get employee of the month tho.... so not based at all.PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    THURSDAYS!!! wow. It's a new world. Again, you should follow Pinocchio, my adaptation of the original story that will have 3 times a week updates. And of course BACK, which is still Wednesdays. You're getting hell of comics from me and it's weird cus I haven't really pushed myself like this in a long time. I like it!! If you wanna help, there's always the store and Patreon has become a good thing too. Whatever you can do to help is always appreciated!....
    New Comic: Spectrograph

    Gabe: Automata: Silverside launched officially today. We’re still wrapping up the end but it’s looking like it will be around 11 pages. It’s been a lot of fun re-visiting the world of Automata and writing for Sam and Carl again. To commemorate the occasion we will be releasing a limited edition Carl pin this Thursday. This pin is a limited run of 1500 pieces and it will go on sale in the PA store Thursday afternoon at 2:00pm PST. It will run $14.99 and if Carl is anywhere near as popular as Hanna was, he will probably be gone in a few hours. This is one of my favorites. I think I’m…...

    Gabe: We’ve posted the cover for this project today. Actual pages will start going up tomorrow with a new one arriving every Tuesday and Thursday. For as long as the story is running you’ll be able to find the latest page right up there at the top of this page, occupying the far right slot next to Camp Weedonwantcha. If you’re unfamiliar with Automata, you can read the very first story Tycho and I did right here. You can read the follow up story done by Gary Whitta and Ben Caldwell right here. There’s some stuff I’m really proud of in Silverside, I hope you guys…...

    Gabe: Pin Pals, here is your Pin Quest for PAX Aus 2014. You can grab the PDF right here. Bring it with you to the show and check off the pins as you acquire them! Good luck! -Gabe out

    Tycho: Shadow of Mordor has a Photo Mode now, and our first question was along the lines of “how would an Uruk use Instagram.”  Until it occurred to us that they would use Instagram in precisely the same way everyone else does. I used to ask if you had found a Final Game - specifically a videogame you could always return to, conceivably, a game-as-life-practice.  I was going to posit that League of Legends ticks a few boxes I think might be crucial to the enterprise, but I am so angry at everything to do with that entire continuum that I don’t want to relive its…...

    Gabe: We’re bringing some great pins with us to PAX Australia at the end of the month. Here’s a look at the Pinny Arcade pins you’ll be able to collect in Melbourne this year! In addition to these pins we will have the new staff pins, the unique pins for Tycho and I, as well as a few older sets. Can’t wait to get my trade on! -Gabe out...

    Gabe: I have Kik messenger to chat with my family. Sometimes I get crazy spam messages though. This morning I decided to have a conversation with the the spam bot. I showed it to Tycho and he said I had to post it up here. Click on the image for the big version. -Gabe out  ...

    Tycho: I have suggested it on a few occasions, but I am something like a consultant(?) on Broodhollow.  This is a sort of ornamental way of saying that I am essentially a fan with access to the creator.  His writhing, newly-hatched larva is, no doubt, a veritable mine of horrors he can fold into his work - but we spent a few hours yesterday fully enunciating the spine of the setting and setting up the most pristine domino configuration to knock down over the course of the next year.  The whiteboard in his office now resembles (if not fully manifests) the “crazy wall”…...

    Atlus USA is localizing Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind for Nintendo 3DS, according to a rating released today by the Australian Classification Board. Spike Chunsoft initially published the action game in Japan late last year, and plans to release an enhanced version subtitled Chain in the country this December. Given Chain's new features include online multiplayer modes and the Australian listing mentions "online interactivity," it seems likely Atlus is working on the expansion rather than the original. Attack on Titan is a popular manga and anime series se...

    Do you have your code for the special demo of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire? There are a handful of ways to acquire one before the games' full release on November 21.

Before sharing my impressions, I have to comment on how weird it feels to play a demo of Pokémon.

    Just in time for the start of the Fall Classic (Go Royals!), Microsoft has slashed prices on Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of R.B.I. Baseball '14, discounting both down to $9.99.

    While Nintendo has mostly talked about its upcoming amiibo figures in the context of Super Smash Bros., other games including Mario Kart 8 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will also support the near-field communication toys. And you can add Hyrule Warriors to that list. The Smash Bros. Link amiibo will be compatible with Hyrule Warriors but, beyond that, Nintendo isn't talking. "Stay tuned for more info," the company said on Twitter. Curious to see how the figure will work and, for that matter, how those other titles will incorporate amiibos. It'd be great (for Nintendo; not my wallet) if the figures did drastically different things across each game. I also hope this news puts us one step closer to seeing the Ganondorf amiibo. ...

    Agile professionals have often discussed what the exact role of a product owner should be in Scrum. What virtues should a product owner possess to be considered a “good” PO? The answers are many. And this is not surprising because Scrum is a framework, and its implementation in a project depends upon the requirements specific to the project. When requirements change, the role of the PO also changes. Therefore, it may not be possible to standardise the exact role a PO should play in a Scrum project....

    In this example we shall talk about the RollingFileAppender, one of the most basic appenders of Log4j. Log4j a thread-safe and flexible logging library for Java, licensed under the Apache Software Foundation. The log4j architecture has three basic components, the logger, the appender and the layout. The logger is used to log the messages, the appender publishes the messages to different outputs and layout is used to format the log messages. All these components are configured in the log4j.xml file, which is placed in the application classpath....

    In this example we are going to explain the use of the LinkedBlockingQueue class, and how it is different from the similar ArrayBlockingQueue. The main point of similarity is the concurrent capabilities of both classes, which makes sense as both are part of the java.util.concurrent package. Although they are the most common implementations of the BlockingQueue interface, certain differences need to be taken into consideration when you have to choose one instead of the other....

    It’s common to see a DJ use a turntable as a musical instrument. Physically manipulating a record while its playing produces its own unique sound, but it takes some finesse and puts strain on the delicate workings of the player when you do it. With this in mind, [Jeremy Bell] has refreshed the notion of appropriating old technology to create new sound with his home-brewed scrubboard. Making use of a cassette tape, [Jeremy] dissected samples from the reel and laid them out in horizontal strips over rails to hold their form. The pickup from the tape player has been … Read the rest...

    [Justin] tipped us about his slick custom OBD-II gauge that could easily pass for an OEM module. He was able to use the clock area of his Subaru BRZ to display a bunch of information including the oil and coolant temperatures and the battery voltage. The forum post linked above has a good FAQ-based explanation of what he did, but so many people have told him to shut up and take their money that he created an Instructable for it. Basically, he’s got a Sparkfun OBD-II UART board communicating with a pro Trinket. The display is an Adafruit OLED, … ...

    Power meters like the Kill-A-Watt are great for keeping track of energy usage, and are also very hackable. The Kill-a-Watt in particular puts out analog signals proportional to current and voltage, which makes it easy to interface with a microcontroller. Although reading analog voltages is easy enough, [Kalle] found a cheap Chinese power meter that is even more hackable. These inexpensive power meters cost about the same as a first-generation Kill-a-Watt, but they directly stream out digital data. The power meter [Kalle] hacked has a non-US plug, but the meter is available from the usual suppliers (eBay, Aliexpress, etc) … ...

    We have a confession to make: we love centrifuges. We’ve used all shapes and sizes, for spinning bags of whole blood into separate components to extracting DNA, and everything in between. Unfortunately, these lab staples are too expensive for many DIY-biologists unless they buy them used or build them themselves. [Pieter van Boheemen] was inspired by other DIY centrifuges and decided to make his own, which he named the RWXBioFuge. [Pieter] designed the RWXBioFuge using Sketchup, OpenSCAD, and InkScape. It features a Thermaltake SMART M850W ATX power supply, an R/C helicopter Electronic Speed Controller (ESC), and brushless outrunner motor. … ...

    This week’s presentation is a well-cast piece of anti-Communist propaganda perpetrated by a division of the DoD that you’ve probably never heard of: the Directorate for Armed Forces Information and Education. It’s narrated by Jack Webb of Dragnet and Adam-12 fame. He tells us of a fake American town located somewhere behind the Iron Curtain. It’s full of young comrades who sock hop and bebop while studying and playacting the bourgeoisie activities of the American economy and way of life. After introducing this, Webb pulls back the cushy, velvet curtain to profile a typical American household led by one [Jerry … ...

    Press embargoes lifted today, heralding the announcement of the world’s first hoverboard. Yes, the hovering skateboard from Back to the Future. It’s called the Hendo hoverboard, it’s apparently real, and you can buy one for $10,000. If that’s too rich for your blood, you can spend $900 for a ‘technology demonstrator’ – a remote-controlled hovering box powered by the same technology. Of course the world’s first hoverboard is announced to the world as a crowd funding campaign, so before we get to how this thing is supposed to work, we’ll have to do our due diligence. The company behind … ...
