    schwit1 quotes UPI: Scientists at Harvard have developed a pair of new kill switches that can be used to thwart bioengineered microbes that go rogue. Researchers have been testing the use of bioengineered microbes for a variety of purposes, from the diagnosis of disease in the human body to the neutering of mosquitoes. But there remain concerns about releasing manipulated microbes into nature. Could their augmented genes have unintended consequences? Could they morph and proliferate? Kill-switches ensure the microbes effectively shutdown, or commit suicide, after they've executed their intended function. While kill switches have proven effective in the lab, researchers suggest kill-switch technologies needed to be improved to ensure safety in real-world environs... The researchers detailed their new kill switches in a new paper published this week in the journal Molecular Cell. "This study shows how our teams are leveraging synthetic biology not only to reprogram microbes to create li...

    "James Damore opens up about his regrets -- and how autism may have shaped his experience of the world," writes the west coast bureau chief for the Guardian. An anonymous reader quotes their report: The experience has prompted some introspection. In the course of several weeks of conversation using Google's instant messaging service, which Damore prefers to face-to-face communication, he opened up about an autism diagnosis that may in part explain the difficulties he experienced with his memo. He believes he has a problem understanding how his words will be interpreted by other people... It wasn't until his mid-20s, after completing research in computational biology at Princeton and MIT, and starting a PhD at Harvard, that Damore was diagnosed with autism, although he was told he had a milder version of the condition known as "high-functioning autism"... Damore argues that Google's focus on avoiding "micro-aggressions" is "much harder for someone with autism to follow". But he stops s...

    Google's new Pixel Buds "are really bad" and "not worth buying," according to CNBC's technology products editor: The stand-out feature of Google Pixel Buds is that they're supposed to be able to translate spoken languages in near real-time. In my real-world tests, however, that wasn't the case at all. I took the Pixel Buds out on the streets of Manhattan, speaking to a Hungarian waiter in Little Italy, multiple vendors in Chinatown and more. If you press the right earbud and say "help me speak Chinese," for example, the buds will launch Google Translate, you can speak what you'd like to ask someone in another language, and a voice will read out the translated speech through your smartphone's speakers. Then, when someone replies, you'll hear that response through the Pixel Buds. The microphone on the Pixel Buds is really bad, so it barely picked up my voice queries that I wanted to translate. I stood on the side of the road in Chinatown repeating myself at least 10 times trying to get ...

    An anonymous reader quotes Space.com: A graphic new video posits a very scary future in which swarms of killer microdrones are dispatched to kill political activists and U.S. lawmakers. Armed with explosive charges, the palm-sized quadcopters use real-time data mining and artificial intelligence to find and kill their targets. The makers of the seven-minute film titled Slaughterbots are hoping the startling dramatization will draw attention to what they view as a looming crisis -- the development of lethal, autonomous weapons, that select and fire on human targets without human guidance. The Future of Life Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to mitigating existential risks posed by advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence, commissioned the film. Founded by a group of scientists and business leaders, the institute is backed by AI-skeptics Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, among others. The institute is also behind the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, a coalition ...

    An anonymous reader quotes Ars Technica: DJI, the Chinese company that manufactures the popular Phantom brand of consumer quadcopter drones, was informed in September that developers had left the private keys for both the "wildcard" certificate for all the company's Web domains and the keys to cloud storage accounts on Amazon Web Services exposed publicly in code posted to GitHub. Using the data, researcher Kevin Finisterre was able to access flight log data and images uploaded by DJI customers, including photos of government IDs, drivers licenses, and passports. Some of the data included flight logs from accounts associated with government and military domains. Finisterre found the security error after beginning to probe DJI's systems under DJI's bug bounty program, which was announced in August. But as Finisterre worked to document the bug with the company, he got increasing pushback -- including a threat of charges under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. DJI refused to offer any pr...

    An anonymous reader quotes the New York Daily News: Authorities in Texas served Apple with a search warrant in order to gain access to the Sutherland Springs church shooter's cellphone files. Texas Ranger Kevin Wright obtained the warrant last week, according to San Antonio Express-News. Investigators are hoping to gain access to gunman Devin Patrick Kelley's digital photos, messages, calls, videos, social media passwords, address book and data since January 2016. Authorities also want to know what files Kelley stored in his iCloud account. Fast Company writes that "it's very likely that Apple will give the Rangers the same answer it gave the FBI in 2016 (in effect, hell no!)... That may be why, in the Texas case, the FBI and the Rangers didn't even bother calling Apple, but rather went straight to court." ...

    theodp writes: In a few weeks, writes Microsoft Corporate VP Mary Snapp, "millions of kids and others will participate in an Hour of Code, a global call to action to spend an hour learning the basics of coding. Today, it's my privilege to announce that Microsoft has released a new Minecraft tutorial for Hour of Code, called Hero's Journey." The release of the new Code.org-touted flagship Hour of Code tutorial -- the third since Microsoft purchased Minecraft Maker Mojang for $2.5B in 2014 -- comes as Microsoft celebrates Minecraft: Education Edition reaching a milestone of 2 million users. Microsoft boasts that nearly 70 million of its Minecraft Hour of Code sessions have been launched to-date, which is certainly impressive from an infomercial or brand awareness standpoint. But does [adding a Scratch block to] move a Minecraft character forward 7 times on an $800 Microsoft Surface offer all that much more educational value than, say, moving a peg forward 5 times on a $10.99 Pop-O-Ma...

    Slashdot reader jonyen writes: For generations, apprenticeships have been the way of working life; master craftsmen taking apprentices under their wing, teaching them the tools of the trade. This declined during the Industrial Revolution as the advent of the assembly line enabled mass employment for unskilled laborers. The master-apprentice model went further out of focus as higher education and formal training became increasingly more valuable. Fast forward to the 21st century, where employers are turning back the page to apprenticeships in an effort to fill a growing skills gap in the labor force in the digital age. Code.org estimates there will be a million unfulfilled tech jobs by 2020. jonyen shared this article by IBM's Vice President of Talent:IBM is committed to addressing this shortage and recently launched an apprenticeship program registered with the US Department of Labor, with a plan to have 100 apprentices in 2018. ... Other firms have taken up the apprenticeship chal...

    Researchers working with a team at the Los Alamos National Lab tested a new way to build material for nuclear fusion reactors, "and found that it could eliminate one of the obstacles preventing humanity from harnessing the power of fusion energy." schwit1 quotes Science Alert: A collaboration of engineers and researchers has found a way to prevent helium, a byproduct of the fusion reaction, from weakening nuclear fusion reactors. The secret is in building the reactors using nanocomposite solids that create channels through which the helium can escape... Not only does the fusion process expose reactors to extreme pressure and temperatures, helium -- the byproduct of fusion between hydrogen atoms -- adds to the strain placed on reactors by bubbling out into the materials and eventually weakening them... In a study published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers overview how they tested the behavior of helium in nanocomposite solids, materials made from thick metal layer stack...

    Facebook will open source its modular network routing software Open/R, currently used in its backbone and data center networks, which "provides a platform to disseminate state across the network and allows new applications to be built on top of it." An anonymous reader quotes TechCrunch: Facebook obviously has unique scale needs when it comes to running a network. It has billions of users doing real-time messaging and streaming content at a constant clip. As with so many things, Facebook found that running the network traffic using traditional protocols had its limits and it needed a new way to route traffic that didn't rely on the protocols of the past, Omar Baldonado, Engineering Director at Facebook explained... While it was originally developed for Facebook's Terragraph wireless backhaul network, the company soon recognized it could work on other networks too including the Facebook network backbone, and even in the middle of Facebook network, he said. Given the company's extreme tr...

    Tycho: Gabe had grabbed some kind of a Starter Pack for a game called Skyforge, he didn’t know much about it but something about it had made him curious.  He’s been using the Xbox One X with some regularity, maybe it’s that.  If you have a new piece of hardware you’re always trying to test it out. I opened the website for the game and saw a unique individual at the top.  I don’t know exactly what’s going on with this guy, let’s see if we can figure it out.  His stomach is… a mouth.  I think that’s the best way of putting…...

    New Comic: It’s Got To Be Here Somewhere

    Tycho: I was never going to buy Star Wars: Battlefront II.  First, the compliment: I honestly can’t believe the graphics.  In an era where good graphics are commonplace Battlefront has always been doing something nobody else was: a photorealistic take on the worlds and characters of the franchise.  It’s a stunning technical achievement which frosts a cake that I am not especially fond of. The strip is a joke, obviously, but that doesn’t mean it’s not bearing the occasional globule of liquid truth.  Grob grabbed the game long before it was out because…...

    New Comic: Late Capitalism

    Tycho: Gabe wanted to know what I’d been playing lately, and I couldn’t think of anything except Elder Scrolls: Legends.  That’s because I was formulating the query incorrectly.  I was looking for memories where visual field was equal to computer desk, or perhaps vf=television, and not coming up with a whole lot.  Then I thought about the Switch, and all the missing time spooled out.  Picross.  Odyssey. Has Been.  Super Beat Sports with Ronia, because we gotta get those hats. I’ve been playing Doom on there a little bit too, in single and in…...

    New Comic: Jerriford Horkims

    Tycho: I would be pretty embarrassed if I tried to electroplate my populist credentials by railing against microtransactions, but then every time there’s a new set of skins from one of the same fucking boxes I breathlessly worshipped it or did a gallery. I don’t have some kind of hard and fast rule about them as a class of purchase; some publishers use them poorly, some are more reasonable.  Sometimes I buy them like I would junk food, in a moment of weakness.  Like, if I go to the grocery story drunk, I buy different things.  Especially at the end, in the dangerous vortex…...

    New Comic: A Double-Edged Khopesh

    Tycho: Working a sense of a larger world into single player experiences is always something I’m keen on, even if the ways it tends to happen fit into some very specific boxes.  I still want to see it   at least considered because eventually it’s going to lead to something rad.  Gabriel was telling me about how Assassin’s Creed: Origins handles it and then we made a strip!  This happens a lot, I would say.  Twenty years, give or take. I was a buy every year Assassin’s Creed fan, fuckin’…  Preorder that shit kinda guy up until Unity. …...

    Black Friday has arrived early for select Sony products at GameStop. The gaming retailer has launched a sale dubbed "Sony Black Friday Week" and you'll find a number of pretty great deals. Everything from cheap PlayStation Plus membership to $20 Triple-A Sony exclusive titles, and even $100 off PlayStation VR bundles. While GameStop is calling it "Sony Week" - the sale expiration date is listed to end later this Wednesday. What's likely to happen though is that on Thanksgiving (aka the new Black Friday), you'll see a continuation of these deals along with additional "Doorbuster" offerings tossed in. For example, as of writing, you can now pick up a PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB console for $199. But come November 23 through November 26, you'll be able to score the same system with an additional $50 GameStop gift card bonus. That's a pretty swell deal in our opin...

    Rocket League is just one of those games you can pick up and it'll always work out. You can shoot for goals, race around the field, and do lots of cool flips and tricks regardless of skill level. It's pretty much the ultimate pick-up-and-play game, and now it's made the transition to literal pick-up-and-play title.  So how does it fare on the Switch? It's the same Rocket League gameplay you know and love...albeit with a few more bumps and bruises.  Read more......

    The Golden Joystick Awards took place yesterday, one of the first major "Year in Review" events to happen thus far, with many of this year's best and brightest titles clamoring for the retro-chic trophy.Nintendo's Zelda: Breath of the Wild walked away with the coveted "Ultimate Game of the Year" gong. The acceptance speech video, shown below, featured the Zelda team's humble thanks, with veteran producer Eiji Aonuma cutely quipping how grateful he was that Super Mario Odyssey arrived late in the voting window. Funny stuff.Other big winners on the night include open-word adventure Horizon Zero Dawn, team-based massacre PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, ragtime platformer Cuphead and voice-actor (and former Destructoider) Ashly Burch, who walked away with two trophies. Sid Meir was also honoured for his contributions to the strategy genre, as well as spearheading the long-running Civilisation ...

    The Destiny franchise has finally come to PC. I've always been interested in the franchise, but I never play my Xbox in any meaningful capacity so I knew if I were to ever get my hands on the series, it would have to be on PC. It makes sense -- both the loot-driven and FPS genres thrive on PC, so an amalgamation of the two feels right at home. I had some concerns about jumping into the second game without any knowledge of the first, but it's worked in the past so I figured it could work again here. While there are some high notes, I feel as if Destiny 2 mostly misses its mark. Read more......

    There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  The sequel will start immediately where the first left off with the Incredible family facing off against the Under Miner, and it'll tackle how their super powered family has to transition back to their normal lives.  The Incredibles 2 hits theaters June 18, 2018.  ...

    In this new digital age we live in, seemingly any game can get new content. While it was strange to see Age of Empires II HD get some new expansions, I never thought I'd see the day when Titan Quest got some recognition. It was crazy enough that a remastered version was released last year, but now there is a full blown extra act and new skills to master. Titan Quest: Ragnarok takes players through northern Europe on a quest to thwart something. There isn't a whole lot of information given about the new expansion (other than it featuring Asgardians and Celts), but you don't even need to wait to play it. If you own the Anniversary Edition, you can download this right now! The expansion is curren...

    Another crazy fighting game crossover coming next year is BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, and while I should dislike reusing sprites, I love the idea of Yukiko the cardboard queen (yet still my favorite) throwing fans at big musclebound men.  This latest trailer confirms Yukiko from Persona 4 Arena, Azrael from BlazBlue, and Gordeau's unfortunately long reach from Under Night In-Birth. We're still waiting on the next RWBY character announcement, but I'm sure we'll see more on that sooner rather than later.  BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle releases for PlayStation 4, Steam, and Nintendo Switch so...

    OVERVIEW Hi there. In this article, I will describe what I see as next generation in the ALM and Quality Management. This article is a result of many years in the ALM market as an ALM vendor, where, as a bootstrap company we were forced to deal with real problems of real customers while building our product. In the last 9 years, we added the quality and regulations aspects, and it allowed us to shape a unique solution to deal with cross departments challenges, that are described in this article. I am always for as much consolidation and automation as possible, especially when we talk about complex solutions such as ALM systems, and especially when we talk about ALM under quality and regulations constraints, such as medical device development....

However, organizations often hesitate to outsource their services to these professionals owing to security concerns. This guide aims to help enterprises and businesses choose the right vendor while assuring absolute security....

    I am a fan of what WordPress has done for the online world. I feel like it has enabled a lot of folks to take some control over their web presence, and in some situations even made programmers out of business people who never thought that is what they’d end up doing. Even with all the positive benefits of WordPress, it has had some significant negative side effects which I think warrant us to begin looking beyond the existing ecosystem–something I’m hoping the headless CMS, and static website movement can help fuel. I’m not anti-WordPress, but I think the movement has run its course, and we can do better when it comes to helping folks take control over their web presence, as well as avoid much of the security challenges we experience as a result of WordPress. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of headless, it is just about doing APIs, but centered around the end deliverable–the application. Headless focuses on decoupling content for use in apps, websites, or any othe...

As a post-processor, this element will execute after each Sample request in its scope, applying the regular expression, extracting the requested values, generating the template string, and storing the result in the given variable name.

    Back in February of 2016, I ran into a problem with NativeScript and its orientation system. You could easily create a screen for portrait and landscape, but the screen would be loaded based on the current device orientation. When you switched orientation, you still had the original specific orientation screen loaded. This created a problem when covering for most use cases where the screen had to efficiently handle orientation changes. So, I went to the drawing board.  At first, I attempted to figure out if I could unload the portrait screen and reload the correct landscape orientation when a user switched orientation, but quickly found out why this would not work properly without a massive amount of engineering. As the screen is loaded it creates each of the native elements it needs. So if you unload the screen, any controls would be destroyed, meaning any work the person did would be gone on each orientation change. I thought of several ways I could handle this, bu...
