    WASHINGTON ? There are a few massive disconnects as Congress and the White House spar over a plan to reopen the government, but one of the biggest is whether relief for young undocumented immigrants, which Democrats are demanding in a deal, is an urgent problem....

    Donald Trump has officially completed one full year as president, and holy moly what a year it’s been.

    By Mert Ozkan and Ellen Francis HASSA, Turkey/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Turkey opened a new front in Syria's nearly seven-year-old war on Saturday, launching airstrikes against a U.S.-backed Kurdish militia in Afrin province that raise the prospect of a further strain on relations between Ankara and Washington. The operation, dubbed "Operation Olive Branch" by Ankara, pits Turkey against Kurdish fighters allied to the United States at a time when ties between Turkey and Washington - NATO allies and members of the coalition against Islamic State - appear dangerously close to a breaking point....

    As soon as Turkish warplanes began bombing raids over Afrin on Saturday, terrified residents of the Syrian Kurdish enclave dashed to take cover in the cellars of their homes. "My four-year-old son is terrified every time he hears the sound of an airplane," said Nisrin, a housewife in Afrin who asked that her real name not be used.

    Kazakhstan's quarter-century struggle to assert its autonomy from former overlord Russia has hit an unlikely snag: the lowly apostrophe.  A vast but sparsely populated country wedged between Russia and China, Kazakhstan came under the rule of its northern neighbour as Russia and Britain jostled for control of Central Asia in the Great Game. It also came under its linguistic influence, and to this day, many Kazakhs speak more Russian than their Turkic native tongue.  This became especially concerning af...

    Long-time Slashdot reader ClarkMills writes: Rocket Lab has successfully launched its second Electron rocket from New Zealand's Mahia Peninsula, with the rocket reaching orbit for the first time... This follows the company's first launch last May, in which the rocket got to space but did not make it to orbit after range safety officials had to kill the flight. Just 60 seconds before lift-off yesterday, a "rogue ship" entered their launch-range area, prompting them to postpone the launch until today. GeekWire reports: This mission was nicknamed "Still Testing," but unlike the first mission, the objective was not merely to test Rocket Lab's hardware. The rocket had the additional task of putting three nanosatellites in orbit: an Earth-imaging Dove satellite for Planet, and two Lemur-2 satellites that the Spire space venture would use for tracking ships and monitoring weather... The price tag for a mission is as low as $5 million, thanks to streamlined hardware production techniques. The...

    Linux kernel developer (and LWN.net co-founder) Jonathan Corbet recently posted an essay with a tantalizing title: "Is it time for open processors?" He cited several "serious initiatives", including the OpenPOWER effort, OpenSPARC, and OpenRISC, adding that "much of the momentum" appears to be with the RISC-V architecture. An anonymous reader quotes LWN.net: The [RISC-V] project is primarily focused on the instruction-set architecture, rather than on specific implementations, but free hardware designs do exist. Western Digital recently announced that it will be using RISC-V processors in its storage products, a decision that could lead to the shipment of RISC-V by the billion. There is a development kit available for those who would like to play with this processor and a number of designs for cores are available... RISC-V seems to have quite a bit of commercial support behind it -- the RISC-V Foundation has a long list of members. It seems likely that this architecture will continue to...

    Self-taught rocket scientist/daredevil "Mad" Mike Hughes will finally launch his homemade rocket in two weeks -- despite "anonymous online haters questioning his every move." An anonymous reader quotes PhillyVoice: He's found some private land in the "ghost town" of Amboy, California -- complete with a brand-spanking-new road that'll enable him to get his motor home and rocket gear to the site... "It'll be a vertical launch, me strapped into the rocket with 6,000 pounds of thrust, going up about three-eighths of a mile," he said, noting it's a prologue to a major launch this Fourth of July weekend. "It's the ultimate Wile E. Coyote move." As with the scrubbed mission, this is in part an event which he hopes will get people to investigate the ideology which holds the earth is flat -- despite quite a bit of evidence to the contrary. He said it would've happened back in November if international publicity hadn't prompted government bureaucrats to "cover their asses" by pointing out that...

    schwit1 quotes ScienceAlert: She was flying home from a holiday in Samoa when she saw it through the airplane window: a "peculiar large mass" floating on the ocean, hundreds of kilometres off the north coast of New Zealand. The Kiwi passenger emailed photos of the strange ocean slick to scientists, who realised what it was -- a raft of floating rock spewed from an underwater volcano, produced in the largest eruption of its kind ever recorded. "We knew it was a large-scale eruption, approximately equivalent to the biggest eruption we've seen on land in the 20th Century," says volcanologist Rebecca Carey from the University of Tasmania, who's co-led the first close-up investigation of the historic 2012 eruption. The incident, produced by a submarine volcano called the Havre Seamount, initially went unnoticed by scientists, but the floating rock platform it generated was harder to miss. Back in 2012, the raft -- composed of pumice rock -- covered some 400 square kilometres (154 square m...

    An anonymous reader writes: If you've been counting the ways the Australian environment is trying to kill you, you can now add "arson" to the list. According to a six-year study published in The Journal of Ethnobiology, observers have confirmed what Aboriginal rangers have been observing for years: birds of prey routinely carry burning or smouldering sticks into dry grassy areas to scare small mammals into fleeing so they can be pack-hunted more effectively. This has implications for environmental management, since the best firebreak will not protect your controlled burn from a "firehawk" determined to breach it. ...

    An anonymous reader quotes the EFF: The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and mobile security company Lookout have uncovered a new malware espionage campaign infecting thousands of people in more than 20 countries. Hundreds of gigabytes of data has been stolen, primarily through mobile devices compromised by fake secure messaging clients. The trojanized apps, including Signal and WhatsApp, function like the legitimate apps and send and receive messages normally. However, the fake apps also allow the attackers to take photos, retrieve location information, capture audio, and more. The threat, called Dark Caracal by EFF and Lookout researchers, may be a nation-state actor and appears to employ shared infrastructure which has been linked to other nation-state actors. In a new report, EFF and Lookout trace Dark Caracal to a building belonging to the Lebanese General Security Directorate in Beirut. "People in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Lebanon, and France have been hit by Dark Caracal....

    PolygamousRanchKid, Ayano, and an anonymous reader all shared the same story. Tribune Media reports: A group has launched a campaign to divide California into two states. It isn't the first attempt to split California, but unlike a failed campaign in 2016 to divide California into six states, the campaign to create New California would split the state into one made up of rural counties and another made up of coastal counties. USA Today provides some context: Breaking up California remains no easy task: A formal secession means getting approval from both Congress and California's legislature itself. But that hasn't stopped folks from trying. Hundreds of times... Monday's declaration of "the State of New California" marked the latest in more than 200 long-shot efforts to split the Golden State. All so far have failed. ...

    dryriver shares news about the ongoing war against drug-resistant fungus. ScienceDaily reports: Microscopic yeast have been wreaking havoc in hospitals around the world -- creeping into catheters, ventilator tubes, and IV lines -- and causing deadly invasive infection. C. auris is particularly problematic because it loves hospitals, has developed resistance to a wide range of antifungals, and once it infects a patient doctors have limited treatment options. But in a recent Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy study, researchers confirmed a new drug compound kills drug-resistant C. auris, both in the laboratory and in a mouse model that mimics human infection. The drug works through a novel mechanism. Unlike other antifungals that poke holes in yeast cell membranes or inhibit sterol synthesis, the new drug blocks how necessary proteins attach to the yeast cell wall. This means C. auris yeast can't grow properly and have a harder time forming drug-resistant communities that are a stubb...

    An anonymous reader quotes BleepingComputer: Red Hat is releasing updates for reverting previous patches for the Spectre vulnerability (Variant 2, aka CVE-2017-5715) after customers complained that some systems were failing to boot. "Red Hat is no longer providing microcode to address Spectre, variant 2, due to instabilities introduced that are causing customer systems to not boot," the company said yesterday. "The latest microcode_ctl and linux-firmware packages are reverting these unstable microprocessor firmware changes to versions that were known to be stable and well tested, released prior to the Spectre/Meltdown embargo lift date on Jan 3rd," Red Had added. Instead, Red Hat is recommending that each customer contact their OEM hardware provider and inquire about mitigations for CVE-2017-5715 on a per-system basis. Besides Red Hat Enterprise Linux, other RHEL-based distros like CentOS and Scientific Linux are also expected to be affected by Red Hat's decision to revert previous Sp...

    Tycho: Out here, up in the Game Spire, where we buy games and then play them, Public G is a big deal, if not the biggest deal.  But a lot - and I mean a lot - of people play Fortnite.  To give you entre into a world you may not be aware of, the Youngs play Fortnite almost exclusively.  It doesn’t cost anything.  That’s, uh…  that’s a pretty good price.  There’s nothing even approximating a Queue on the PC.  Once you’ve decided you want to play, that’s it.  And from the sounds of it, that kind of community support is having…...

    New Comic: Paragone

    Tycho: My flights were cancelled many, many times, both on the way into hashtag PAX South and out; while I was writing today’s strip I learned that I’d lost the reservation I’d made to account for the previously lost reservation.  It flipped several times during the next hour until I was able to get a flight that would work - sort of - provided I could get there in the next twenty minutes with my wife and moist larvae in tow. Traffic generally might have been an issue, but there was essentially nobody in San Antonio that would willingly drive anywhere because the same weather…...

    Tycho: I think it’s kind of funny to be doing Division strips this long after the fact, but that’s where we’re at.  A PAX is typically sufficient to break the habit for a game, ironic though that may be; there’s a kind of radius around the shows that absorbs all conscious attention. I hope it doesn’t happen this time, but if anything I’ve been more intrigued since I hit the level cap.  I don’t know the last time that happened in a game of this sort.  There are multiple endgame activities with distinct contours, and a couple with their own…...

We occasionally do an event at PAX shows called For The Watch, in fact, the first one we ever did was for Overwatch.  It “looks” like eSports in the same way that Strip Search “looked” like a typical reality show.  It’s not meant to be serious in any way,…...

    A week before Monster Hunter: World launches, I look back on my time with the series. The demo for 4U was amazing, to be sure, but what's Monster Hunter without camaraderie? The hooks were in, but they wouldn't be in deep and barbed if it weren't for some friends, who noticed my shitposting about Monster Hunter on Facebook. So they invited me into their ragtag guild they called the Sunsnug Island Panapticon. Read more......

    My friend Johnny and I had a complicated relationship based around loneliness, a mutual sense of humor, drugs, booze, and video games. I’m not sure if we were ever really friends. One time he tried to open up to me about his dad and their problems, and it just made me feel uncomfortable; I never felt like myself around Johnny. But we spent an insane amount of time together in my teenage years. I didn’t really get along well with anyone, and even though I had no good reason to trust him either since he fucked me over just as much as anyone else, there was something that kept our shitty friendship going, and it didn’t end until much later when we eventually grew apart. I met my future wife, kept trying to move into the realm of adulthood while battling my crippling social anxiety and bitterness, and Johnny – well, he eventually got a job at a liquor store after being admitted for drug-induced schizophrenia. But mostly we were pals, and we had fun ...

    I think it's fair for me to say that the world is filled with vitriol and animosity right now. Everywhere you look there are people angry about everything, politics, celebrities, social media, video games, a well made but somewhat flawed sequel to a science fiction classic, it's everywhere. It may have always been like this but it wasn't as prevalent, I mostly blame the internet for giving anyone a platform to spread their hate to the far reaches of the globe but without it, I wouldn't be able to spread this news so I can't rightfully say it's inherently evil. Perhaps it is that we as a culture have become addicted to negativity. For years the mantra of "if it bleeds, it leads" has been the norm when it comes to news reporting and with the advent of the 24-hour news cycle it's become a constant storm of negativity, and death that we see each day. ...

    It was big news last year when it was announced NIS America had snatched away the Ys franchise from Xseed Games and would publish Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA in the west.

It was delayed in September, then ...

    Hylics was the "trippiest RPG" I had ever seen as of 2015, but now it's time for a new king: Hylics 2! Creator Mason Lindroth shared a video preview for the sequel earlier this week, and I'm delighted knowing that some of you will have never seen or heard of Hylics before, making this your first exposure to the series' wondrously strange aesthetic. Take a seat, clear the gunk out of your eyes, and behold. Hylics 2 has the same off-kilter vibe, but its art, animation, and especially the world look more refined. I'll also never stop being amazed by all of those extravagant hand movements during battles. If any of this speaks to you, follow along on Lindroth's blog. You'll find t...

    As we learned last week, we're getting a "No, really this is actually the final version, we promise" re-release of Hyrule Warriors on the Switch. Nintendo even went so far as to call it "The Ultimate Version of Hyrule Warriors." Can't get much more definitive than ultimate. Now we have the first trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition courtesy of Koei Tecmo. It's in Japanese, but it gets the point across. It cuts to a bunch of characters and features all the frantic sword-swinging we'd expect. As for actual details, the Nintendo mini-Direct was the best place for that (here's a time-stamped link). That's where we found out that Definitive Edition has every map, character, and mission for both the Wii U an...

    It seems with any new game coming out in Japan, there is a themed PS4 console to go along with it. If you're a fan of Valkyria Chronicles and are eagerly awaiting the upcoming 4, why not import this garish looking beast? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose. This model is a PS4 Slim and it comes in 500 GB (33,480 yen) and 1 TB (38,480 yen) variants. You'll also (obviously) get a copy of the game with this bundle alongside a PS4 theme to show off to your friends. This console will be available the same day as the game, which comes out March 21 in Japan. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Gets A Limited Edition PlayStation 4 In Japan [Siliconera] ...

    The original Super Troopers remains one of my favorite comedies of all time. It strikes a perfect chord of raunchy, slapstick, and joke-driven comedy that still makes me laugh until I hurt even after watching it multiple times over the years. With that in mind, I obviously cannot wait for the sequel, despite comedy sequels rarely living up to more than just callbacks and rehashes. Thankfully the new trailer that was released for Super Troopers 2 today isn't completely made up of rehashes, which gives me hope. I could continue going on about the movie and the general concept of comedy but you aren't here to read my words so watch the trailer and enjoy! Super Troopers 2 releases on April 20, 2018 because of course it does. ...

    Darwin Project didn't leave much of an impression on me back at E3, but now that the multiplayer survival game is running an open beta for the weekend, I figured it was due another look. Set around the post-apocalyptic Canadian Rockies, it's a deadly reality show in which 10 players compete against each other and their harsh environment, laying traps and trying to stay warm. "In other games, the most fun part of the experience is when you're fighting other players, but this represents less than 10 percent of the match," says writer Vance Musgrave. To keep the action flowing throughout the match, Scavengers Studio gives players a few tools to see what everyone else is up to. A few examples: player-made f...

Even if you are sick of 2048 games by now (I dont blame you, this idea has been copied almost as much as Tetris in about 1/10th the time).

    Technology moves fast these days. It can be challenging to keep up with the latest trends as well as new releases of your favorite projects. I’m here to help! Spring Boot and Angular are two of my favorite projects, so I figured I’d write y’all a guide to show you how to build and secure a basic app using their latest and greatest releases. In Spring Boot, the most significant change in 2.0 is its new web framework: Spring WebFlux. In Angular 5.0, we get a new HttpClient on the table. This class replaces Http, and is a bit easier to use, with less boilerplate code. Today, I’m not going to explore Spring WebFlux, because we still have some work to do before we can support in with the Okta Spring Boot Starter....

    Security headers are an excellent way to reduce exploitations of your website. There are several important headers with varying levels of difficulty to implement. Implementing them with the strictest policies on new projects will help enforce better practices. Adding security headers to legacy projects can be a bit more work if you want to set a strict content security policy or your legacy site doesn't support HTTPS everywhere. It's fairly common to handle all security headers in a central load balancer or a proxy server like HAProxy or NGINX. This makes it much easier to maintain if you have different tech stacks and want a simple way to keep everything consistent. Since we only use Java and Undertow, let's look at how we added simple implementations for this site, which can be seen at the following PR's CSP and ...

While we aspire for smart cities, smart environments, smart retail, or smart homes, it becomes absolutely essential for these diverse industries to evaluate the implications of IoT in the LIVE environment....

But every joker card's cost is X, and every sequence with jokers's cost is Y. Find the minimal possible difference beetwen this strings (after you create them), solution = -x * (number of joker cards) - y * (number of joker sequences) + number of positions in both strings that does not contain jokers.

    Ever heard of a sphericular display? [AnubisTTP] laid hands on a (damaged) Burroughs SD-11 Sphericular Display and tore down the unusual device to see what was inside. It’s a type of projection display with an array of bulbs at the back and a slab of plastic at the front, and the rest is empty space. The usual expected lenses and slides are missing… or are they? It turns out that the thin display surface at the front of the unit is packed with a two- dimensional 30 x 30 array of small lenses, a shadow mask, and what can be …read more...

    Scientists working to advance the frontier of knowledge frequently also need to invent their tools along the way. Sometimes these are interesting little hacks to get a job done. Recently some researchers found ancestors of moths and butterflies older than any previously known by analyzing tiny scales found alongside ancient pollen. They needed a tool to manipulate these scales: separating them from surrounding debris, transferring them to microscope slides. The special tool was a needle tipped with a single human nostril hair. As ancient insects were the published paper‘s focus, their use of nose hair tipped needle was only given …read more...

    Thanks to the holiday gifting cycle, many homes are newly adorned with 3D printers. Some noobs are clearly in the “plug and play” camp, looking for a user experience no more complicated than installing a new 2D printer. But most of us quickly learn that adding a dimension increases the level of difficulty substantially, and tinkering ensues. One such tinkerer, [Marco Reps], has been taking his new Cetus 3D printer to new places, and his latest video offers a trio of tips to enhance the user experience of this bare-bones but capable printer. First tip: adding a heated bed. While …read more...

    There is a huge amount of interest among our community in wearable electronics, but it is fair to say that it is a technology that has a way to go at our level in terms of its application. Some twinkly LEDs are all very well, but unless you have the arrived-on-a-spaceship-from-the-future aesthetic of someone like [Naomi Wu] to carry them off they get old rather quickly. What the sew-on LED sector of wearable electronics is waiting for are some applications, wearable lights that do something rather than just look pretty. And [Moko] has a project that takes them in that …read more...

    Looking for a ultra tiny development board? Tomu is an ARM Cortex M0+ device that fits inside your USB port. We’ve seen these in person, and they’re tiny. There’s a few commercial devices in this form factor on the market. For example, the Yubikey Nano emulates a keyboard to provide codes for two-factor authentication. The Yubikey’s tiny hardware does this job well, but the closed-source device isn’t something you can modify. Tomu is a new device for your USB port. It sports a Silicon Labs EFM32 microcontroller, two buttons, and two LEDs. This particular microcontroller is well suited to …read more...

    There is disquiet in the world of vacuum electronics, that something as simple as shipping a vacuum tube could now be very difficult to achieve. It’s a concern expressed among other places in a video by [Guitologist] that we’ve included below, and includes tales of vacuum tubes being impounded as either dangerous to ship, or not allowed to be shipped across international borders. Upon investigation it appears that the common thread in all the stories lies with eBay’s Global Shipping Program, the centralised shipping service operated by the online auction giant. We reached out to eBay’s press office on the …read more...

    The “Completion Backwards Principle” is a method of reasoning through a problem by visualizing the end result and then working your way backwards from that point. The blog post that [Alan Hawse] has recently written about the intricacies of crimping wires for plug connectors is a perfect example of this principle. The end result of his work is the realization that you probably shouldn’t bother crimping your own connectors, but watching him work backwards from that point is still fascinating. It’s also the name of a rock album from the 80’s by The Tubes, but this is not a …read more...
