"(I) do not believe the Labour Party under your leadership is, or will ever be, in good enough shape to go to the public in an election and ask to serve them in government," said Anna Turley, the party's spokeswoman on civil issues, in her resignation letter posted on twitter....

    "Do you want a computer to help decide a convict's fate?" asks Engadget, telling the story of a Wisconsin convict who "claims that the justice system relied too heavily on its COMPAS algorithm to determine the likelihood of repeat offenses and sentenced him to six years in prison." Sentencing algorithms have apparently been in use for 10 years. His attorneys claim that the code is "full of holes," including secret criteria and generic decisions that aren't as individually tailored as they have to be. For instance, they'll skew predictions based on your gender or age -- how does that reflect the actual offender...? [T]he court challenge could force Wisconsin and other states to think about the weight they give to algorithms. While they do hold the promise of both preventing repeat offenses and avoiding excessive sentences for low-threat criminals, the American Civil Liberties Union is worried that they can amplify biases or make mistakes based on imperfect law enforcement data. The bi...

    "A new study shows that most people prefer that self-driving cars be programmed to save the most people in the event of an accident, even if it kills the driver," reports Information Week. "Unless they are the drivers." Slashdot reader MojoKid quotes an article from Hot Hardware about the new study, which was published by Science magazine. So if there is just one passenger aboard a car, and the lives of 10 pedestrians are at stake, the survey participants were perfectly fine with a self-driving car "killing" its passenger to save many more lives in return. But on the flip side, these same participants said that if they were shopping for a car to purchase or were a passenger, they would prefer to be within a vehicle that would protect their lives by any means necessary. Participants also balked at the notion of the government stepping in to regulate the "morality brain" of self-driving cars. The article warns about a future where "a harsh AI reality may whittle the worth of our very ex...

    An anonymous reader shares this article from Softpedia: A religiously-motivated Moroccan hacker has defaced 111 different web sites promoting escort services since last summer as part of an ongoing protest against the industry. "In January, the hacker defaced 79 escort websites," writes Softpedia. "His actions didn't go unnoticed, and on some online forums where escorts and webmasters of these websites met, his name was brought up in discussions and used to drive each other in implementing better Web security. While some webmasters did their job, some didn't. During the past days, the hacker has been busy defacing a new set of escort websites... Most of these websites bare ElSurveillance's defacement message even today... Most of the websites are from the UK." His newest round of attacks replace the sites with a pro-Palestine message and a quote from the quran, though in January Softpedia reported the attacker was also stealing data from some of the sites about their users' accounts....

    An anonymous reader quotes this article from The Verge: The systems that automatically enforce copyright laws on the internet may be expanding to block unfavorable speech. Reuters reports that Facebook, Google, and other companies are exploring automated removal of extremist content, and could be repurposing copyright takedown methods to identify and suppress it. It's unclear where the lines have been drawn, but the systems are likely targeted at radical messages on social networks from enemies of European powers and the United States. Leaders in the US and Europe have increasingly decried radical extremism on the internet and have attempted to enlist internet companies in a fight to suppress it. Many of those companies have been receptive to the idea and already have procedures to block violent and hateful content. Neither Facebook and Google would confirm automation of these efforts to Reuters, which relied on two anonymous sources who are "familiar with the process"... The secret ...

    The average American watches three hours of TV each day, and researchers have found that most people already prefer listening to accelerated speech. "After watching accelerated video on my computer for a few months, live television began to seem excruciatingly slow..." writes the Washington Post's Jeff Guo. "Movie theaters feel suffocating. I need to be able to fast-forward and rewind and accelerate and slow down, to be able to parcel my attention where it's needed..." Slashdot reader HughPickens.com distills some interesting points from Guo's article: You can play DVDs and iTunes purchases at whatever tempo you like, and a Google engineer has written a popular Chrome extension that accelerates most other Web videos, including on Netflix, Vimeo and Amazon Prime. Over 100,000 people have downloaded that plug-in, and the reviews are ecstatic. "Oh my God! I regret all the wasted time I've lived before finding this gem!!" one user wrote. According to Guo speeding up video is more than an e...

    schwit1 quotes the MIT Technology Review: The FBI has access to nearly 412 million photos in its facial recognition system—perhaps including the one on your driver's license. But according to a new government watchdog report, the bureau doesn't know how error-prone the system is, or whether it enhances or hinders investigations. Since 2011, the bureau has quietly been using this system to compare new images, such as those taken from surveillance cameras, against a large set of photos to look for a match. That set of existing images is not limited to the FBI's own database, which includes some 30 million photos. The bureau also has access to face recognition systems used by law enforcement agencies in 16 different states, and it can tap into databases from the Department of State and the Department of Defense. And it is in negotiations with 18 other states to be able to search their databases, too... Adding to the privacy concerns is another finding in the GAO report: that the ...

    An anonymous reader writes: Michael Larabel at Phoronix has combined their new results from intensive Linux/Windows performance testing for popular games on Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA graphics cards, and at different resolutions. "This makes it easy to see the Linux vs. Windows performance overall or for games where the Linux ports are simply rubbish and performing like crap compared to the native Windows game." The games tested included Xonotic, Tomb Raider, Grid Autosport, Dota 2, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, F1 2015, and Company of Heroes 2 -- and the results were surprising. Xonotic v0.8 outperformed Windows with a NVIDIA card, but "The poor Xonotic performance on Linux with the Intel driver was one of the biggest surprises from yesterday's article. It's not anything we've seen with the other drivers." And while testing on the Source 2 engine revealed that Valve's Dota 2 "is a quality Linux port," most of the other results were disappointing -- regardless of the graphics card and ...

    Gabe: I finally had the opportunity to try out the Microsoft HoloLens. I’ve played around in pretty much every consumer virtual reality rig available (with the exception of the PSVR) and I love the idea of VR but they all make me a little sick. It varies from device to device but no matter if it’s the Vive or the Gear VR, I can’t go for more than about 30 minutes without getting queasy. I’d love to play VR games all day but something about the experience just doesn’t sit right with my human body.  I think “mixed reality” like the Hololens might end up being better for me as I…...

    Brian: I am the sort of person who tries to match the cheese I am serving to the movie I’m showing when I have friends over. Or when I watch an episode of How I Met Your Mother alone. So it should come as no surprise that, on the rare week that we’ve released two new products at the same time, they’d share something in common. In this case it’s cats. OUR cat, Thomas Kemper.

So, even after it was established as a known quantity by something like 92.5% of the surveyed participants that the Warcraft movie was not maybe, you know, a recreational activity in the broadest sense, somehow - some fucking how - a bunch of us reactivated our fucking accounts.  This is some…...

    RALEIGH, NC—In what many political observers are calling a new low in an election season that has already seen its share of negative campaigning, a scathing anti–Ted Cruz attack ad airing this week reportedly shows nothing more than a still photograph of the Texas senator’s face for 30 seconds, unaccompanied by any text, voiceover, or music.The pointed TV spot—which continues on in complete silence and does not pan across or zoom in on the candidate’s face, but merely holds steady on the image for half a minute before fading to black—is said to be running in several states with upcoming primaries and is paid for by a super PAC opposed to Cruz’s presidential bid.“This is an extremely vicious jab at Ted Cruz, and one that succeeds in painting the candidate in a most unfavorable light,” said Douglas Reisenthaler, a senior analyst ......

    The future of Destiny is unclear.  That was my big takeaway from a recent interview with Bungie's Scott Taylor, the executive producer behind the online first-person shooter's forthcoming expansion, Rise of Iron. "We're still working on what the road map is for Destiny after September 20, (when the add-on drops)" Taylor repeatedly told me whenever I attempted to ascertain any information regarding how the Bellevue-based studio plans to support its popular title moving forward. With a Destiny sequel already confirmed for a 2017 release, I was curious about what percentage of Bungie is still devoted to the original game. I asked Taylor about how many people are w...

    Okay, so just so you know, I’m an X-Men fan. I like the characters, love how nicely they tie into American culture and society (with focusing on the ostracizing of the way people were born, you can almost literally apply their plight to every major social movement in US history), and for the most part, like how well they translate into different mediums. X-Men is both an entertaining property, and one that addresses both the good and bad parts of human nature. Plus, a dude uncontrollably shoots lasers from his eyes, which fucking rules. Read more......

    While the community blogs are blowing up with top 20 Pokémon lists to celebrate the 20th anniversary, it's easy to forget not every loves Pokémon or even knows much at all about the bestiary. Which is why it's nice we know community manager Occams Electric Toothbrush. He doesn't know anything about Pokémon but he's open-minded about it (mostly). So we community managers got together, surrounded Occams, and tied him to a chair as we forced him to create Pokédex entries for Pokémon he has no context to understanding at all. The only major rule is that we restricted our choices for our first shot at this to the Kantodex, the first 151 Pokémon. But as long as we choose from the initial 151, who knows what will come erupting forth from Occams' mind when trying to describe electric mice or four-armed wrestlers. ...

    Good news, everyone! If you're thinking of buying a Rift or Vive to play VR games in the future, you can go back to selecting that hardware based on its merits and not software exclusives.

Officially, the company said it was "to better support developers".

    Have you seen Nvidia's stock? It was like $15 for the last five years and suddenly more than doubled. It's because they're making the worst video card ever.

The worlds felt like they were cobbled together as sets of each level type, instead of following a consistent theme and building upon established ideas, puzzles, and mechanics. I had more fun with the mini-games, which showed more promise and potential as full-scale titles than Planet Robobots primary campaign mode.

    It sounds like something you’d never need, but sometimes, when you distribute end-user software, you may need to install a java program as a Windows service. I had to do it because I developed a tool for civil servants to automatically convert and push their Excel files to the opendata portal of my country. The tool has to run periodically, so it’s a prime candidate for a service (which would make the upload possible even if the civil servant forgets about this task altogether, and besides, repetitive manual upload is a waste of time).Even though there are numerous posts and StackOverflow answers on the topic, it still took me a lot of time because of minor caveats and one important prerequisite that few people seemed to have – having a bundled JRE, so that nobody has to download and install a JRE (would complicate the installation process unnecessarily, and the target audience is not necessarily tech-savv...

    Sometimes, it may be useful to encapsulate the AJAX requests in JavaScript functions placed in the JavaScript global scope in such way that we can simply call them by name, without arguments, or with arguments that represent the data that should be passed to the server?side via the encapsulated AJAX request. Obviously the jsf.ajax.request() and mojarra.ab() functions don?t allow us to accomplish that, but as you will see, JSF 2.3 (and OmniFaces) will call the jsf.ajax.request() from a JavaScript global scoped function that can be easily called by its name.Let?s take a look at this simple HTML code:...

    When I work with clients, they often have a “problem” with product ownership. The product owners want tons of features, don’t want to address technical debt, and can’t quite believe how long features will take. Oh, and the POs want to change things as soon as they see them.I don’t see this as problems. To me, this is all about learning. The team learns about a feature as they develop it. The PO learns about the feature once the PO sees it. The team and the PO can learn about the implications of this feature as they proceed. To me, this is a significant value of what agile brings to the organization. (I’ll talk about technical debt a little later.)...

    At some point, many applications get to a state in which a large refactoring or, in some cases, a complete rewrite needs to happen. The decision to do so can be driven by many factors. For example, the code base is growing rapidly and the current architecture cannot support the growth, components are becoming too tightly coupled and need to be split, new and better technology becomes available which offers significant improvements, or due to other factors the current code base is just not maintainable. In part 1 of this blog post, I will describe why we here at Logentries decided to perform a rewrite of a major component of our front-end and reveal the thought process into...

    At least, that's my estimate. Twitter does not ask users their gender, so I have written a program that guesses based on their names. Among those who follow me, the ratio is even worse: 83 percent are men.The way to fix the first ratio is not mysterious: I should notice and seek more women experts tweeting about my interests, and follow them....
    I've a several li elements which have as class : multiselect_selected_profil. <li id="li60" class="multiselect_my_profil multiselect_selected_profil" data-id="60"><span class="multiselect_profil">C1</span></li> I would like that : foreach li that have this specific class, I get the id of this item (by using data-id like above) and then put it into an array. At then end of the process I would like to have an array which contains all the ids. Here is what I've tried : $(".multiselect_selected_profil").each(function(){ var iObjetId = $(this).attr('data-id'); ??? } ...

    I tried the below code but no luck $('#categoryList').change(function () { $a = $("#categoryList option:selected").text(); $(".iconSuccess").hide(); $("#categoryList5, #categoryList4, #categoryList3, #categoryList2" ).hide(); $.post("/trobay/categories/default/lists?parent_id=" + $(this).val(), function(data) { if (data == 0) { $(".iconSuccess").show(); $(".mydiv").append($a); alert(1); alert($a); } else { $("select#categoryList1").show(); $("select#categoryList1").html(data); } //alert($a); }); }); If data returns 0 I want to get the text value of the selected option and append it to a div. Now data returns 0 and the div with class iconSuccess shows up but the value of $a cannot be gotten. I try to alert($a) or even alert(1) in the ...

    In order to explain the problem I've created a simplified example. In real life the data class is somewhat more complicated. Consider the following data class: public class Data { public Data(string source, string path, string information) { this.Source = source; this.Path = path; this.Information = information; } public string Source { get; set; } public string Path { get; set; } public string Information { get; set; } } Now consider the following array: var array = new Data[] { new Data("MS", @"c:\temp\img1.jpg", "{a}"), new Data("IBM", @"c:\temp\img3.jpg", "{b}"), new Data("Google", @"c:\temp\img1.jpg", "{c}"), new Data("MS", @"c:\temp\img2.jpg", "{d}"), new Data("MS", @"c:\temp\img3.jpg", "{e}"), new Data("Google", @"c:\temp\img1.jpg", "{f}"), new Data("IBM", @"c:\temp\img2.jpg", "{g}") }; I would like to process the d...

    I need to make a div as a dropdown and when clicking on it, the menu slides and shows its items. I've tried to implement this but when clicking on the div it doesn't show it's items at all. I've used this reference: http://getbootstrap.com/javascript/#dropdowns-examples Here's the way I've implemented this: $(document).ready(function() { $('.dropdown-toggle').dropdown(); }); .top-bar-margin-top { margin-top: 43px; /*padding: 0;*/ } .top-bar-margin-top a:hover { text-decoration: none; } <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-1q8mTJOASx8j1Au+a5WDVnPi2lkFfwwEAa8hDDdjZlpLegxhjVME1fgjWPGmkzs7" crossorigin="anonymous"> <script src="https:...

    I've got a question about a sql result and how to achieve the following. In the Screenshot, there is a Rownumber for every ID, and every ID has another column which has a status 'old' or 'processed'. What i want is, if the RN is = 1 and the Status is processed, than all other RN of this ID should also have the status 'processed'. Is there a possibility to achieve this in sql? SELECT RN = ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY [NODE_NAME] ORDER by REPORTING_RELEVANT_STATUS_ID DESC, BILLING_PERIOD DESC) ,[CI_EQUIPMENT_ID] AS ID_PART ,[REPORTING_RELEVANT_STATUS_ID] AS REPORTING_RELEVANT ,[BILLING_PERIOD] , [NODE_NAME] FROM Table ...

    I want to replace string in a line which contain patternB, something like this: from: some lines line contain patternA some lines line contain patternB more lines to: some lines line contain patternA some lines line contain patternB xx oo more lines I have code like this: inputfile = open("d:\myfile.abc", "r") outputfile = open("d:\myfile_renew.abc", "w") obj = "yaya" dummy = "" item = [] for line in inputfile: dummy += line if line.find("patternA") != -1: for line in inputfile: dummy += line if line.find("patternB") != -1: item = line.split() dummy += item[0] + " xx " + item[-1] + "\n" break outputfile.write(dummy) It do not replace the line contain "patternB" as expected, but add an new line below it like : some lines line contain patternA some lines line contain patter...

    Got still no solution after over 5 hours of searching and trying... I've got 2 classes (lets call them Form1 and Form2). Form 1 has two TextBoxes with values and a button. When I trigger this button, Form2 shall be opened and calculate something with the values which are written in the TextBoxes of Form1. Here is my code (if you need it): Form1: namespace Darlehensrechner { /// <summary> /// Interaction logic for Annuitätendarlehen.xaml /// </summary> public partial class Annuitätendarlehen : Window { public Annuitätendarlehen() { InitializeComponent(); } public void berechnen2_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { double zins = 0.03; double ZwErg1 = 0; double ZwErg2 = 0; double ZwErg3 = 0; double gSumme = 0; int monate; monate = Convert.ToInt32(monate2.Text); monate = int.Parse(monate2.Text); int betrag; betrag = Convert.To...

    We’ve covered [Vijay] refreshable braille display before. Reader, [zakqwy] pointed us to an interesting event that occured in the discussion of its Hackaday.io project page. [Vijay] was inspired by the work of [Paul D’souza], who he met at Makerfaire Bangalore. [Paul] came up with a way to make a refreshable braille display using small pager motors. [Vijay] saw the light, and also felt that he could make the vibrating motor display in such a way that anyone could make it for themselves at a low cost. Of course, [Paul], had patented his work, and in this case rightly so. As …read more...

    Use of the global positioning system is all around us. From the satnav in your car to quadcopters hovering above a point, there are hundreds of ways we use the Global Positioning System every day. There are a few drawbacks to GPS: it takes a while to acquire a signal, GPS doesn’t work well indoors, and because nodes on the Internet of Things will be cheap, they probably won’t have a GPS receiver. These facts open up the door for a new kind of positioning system. A local positioning system that uses hardware devices already have, but is still able …read more...

    If you need to generate a radio frequency electrical signal, you will make some form of electronic oscillator. We’ll probably all be used to oscillators using transistors, tubes, logic gates or a host of other electronic technologies. Similarly if you need to generate radio frequencies at high powers, you’ll couple your oscillator to an amplifier, a relatively simple task with today’s electronic parts bin. If you needed to do the same thing with a high power radio signal in the early years of the 20th century, none of these options were open to you. There were no transistors or integrated …read more...

    Solar Freaking Roadways. What is it? It’s technology that replaces all roadways with a smooth sheet of glass and solar panels. You know how asphalt is soooo easy to repair and soooooo cheap?

A parking lot for the Route 66 Welcome Center in Conway, MO will be paved with the solar freaking roadways that netted $2 Million in an Indiegogo campaign two years ago. There is a National Potato Expo. As far as I can tell, this is a trade show for potatoes and potato-related paraphernalia. As …read more...

    [Nick Sayer] can reflow, and he can prove it. He designed a simple blinking-LED circuit that uses SMD parts to, well, blink LEDs. That’s not the point, though. It’s designed to be a test platform for reflow soldering, and to use a minimum number of valuable parts. Plus, it says “I can reflow!” in exposed copper. What else do you want? OK, as far as “proving it” goes, the badge isn’t 100% reliable — we hand-solder 0805 components all day long. But still, if you want to try your hand at reflowing a circuit board, and you don’t want to …read more...

    [Harris Shallcross] decided to build a pair of smart glasses and recently completed a first prototype of his project ‘Ochi’ – an STM32 based, BLE-connected, OLED eyeglass display. There are of course several homebrew smart glasses projects out there; many are more polished-looking and nearly all of them also display information from a smartphone over Bluetooth. This one is interesting partly because it highlights many of the design challenges that smart glasses and other near-eye displays face. It also demonstrates the iterative development process: begin by getting something working to learn what does and doesn’t cut it at a basic …read more...

    It always surprises us that magnetic levitation seems to have two main purposes: trains and toys. It is reasonably inexpensive to get floating Bluetooth speakers, globes, or just floating platforms for display. The idea is reasonably simple, especially if you only care about levitation in two dimensions. You let an electromagnet pull the levitating object (which is, of course, ferrous). A sensor detects when the object is at a certain height and shuts off the magnet. The object falls, which turns the magnet back on, repeating the process. If you do it right, the object will reach equilibrium and hover …read more...
