    Donald Trump unveiled a revamped travel ban on Sunday just as his controversial immigration order covering six Muslim-majority nations was coming to an end.  Citizens of seven countries will face new restrictions on entry to the US under a proclamation signed by the US President. "Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet," Mr Trump said in a tweet.

    Chancellor Angela Merkel clinched a fourth term in Germany's election Sunday, but her victory was clouded by the entry into parliament of the hard-right AfD in the best showing for a nationalist force since World War II.

Its nearest rivals, the Social Democrats and their candidate Martin Sch...

    By Joseph Nasr BERLIN (Reuters) - Syrian refugees rejoiced on Sunday at the news that Angela Merkel had secured a fourth term as German chancellor, but said they were alarmed by the rise of the far-right AfD party, which they feared could push her to tighten asylum rules. "We prayed that Merkel would win," said Fatima al-Haidar, a mother of two from Damascus. The conservatives bled support to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which entered parliament for the first time as the third-biggest party, cashing in on anger at Merkel's decision to welcome more than 1.3 million refugees....

    Futurist Ray Kurzweil, now a director of engineering at Google, made an interesting argument in a new interview with Fortune: We have already eliminated all jobs several times in human history. How many jobs circa 1900 exist today? If I were a prescient futurist in 1900, I would say, "Okay, 38% of you work on farms; 25% of you work in factories. That's two-thirds of the population. I predict that by the year 2015, that will be 2% on farms and 9% in factories." And everybody would go, "Oh, my God, we're going to be out of work." I would say, "Well, don't worry, for every job we eliminate, we're going to create more jobs at the top of the skill ladder." And people would say, "What new jobs?" And I'd say, "Well, I don't know. We haven't invented them yet." That continues to be the case, and it creates a difficult political issue because you can look at people driving cars and trucks, and you can be pretty confident those jobs will go away. And you can't describe the new jobs, because the...

    50 years after Australia became the third country to launch a satellite into space, they had another big announcement. An anonymous reader quotes AFP: Australia on Monday committed to creating a national space agency as it looks to cash in on the lucrative and fast-evolving astronautical sector. The announcement came at a week-long Adelaide space conference attended by the world's top scientists and experts including SpaceX chief Elon Musk. It brings Canberra -- which already has significant involvement in national and international space activities -- into line with most other developed nations, which already have dedicated agencies to help coordinate the industry and shape development. "The global space industry is growing rapidly and it's crucial that Australia is part of this growth," acting science minister Michaelia Cash said in statement. The Australian government estimates that the global space sector now drives $323 billion in revenue each year. ...

    An anonymous reader quotes Newsweek: The American Library Association's yearly Banned Books Week, held this year between Sunday September 24 and Saturday September 30, is both a celebration of freedom and a warning against censorship. Launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries, the event spotlights the risk of censorship still present... "While books have been and continue to be banned, part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read," the ALA stated. "This Banned Books Week, we're asking people of all political persuasions to come together and celebrate Our Right to Read," says a coalition supporting the event. The ALA reports that half of the most frequently challenged books were in fact ac...

    theodp writes: In a slick new video, segments of which were apparently filmed looking out from Google's Chicago headquarters giving it a nice high-tech vibe, Chicago Public Schools' CS4ALL staffers not-too-surprisingly argue that creating technology is "a power that everyone needs to have." In the video, the Director of Computer Science and IT Education for the nation's third largest school district offers a take on why U.S. IT jobs were offshored that jibes nicely with the city's new computer science high school graduation requirement. From the transcript: "People still talk about it's all offshored, it's all in India and you know, there are some things that are there but they don't even realize some of the reasons that they went there in the first place is because we weren't making our own." ...

    An anonymous reader writes: Russian hacktivist group Fancy Bear (also referred to as APT28, Sofacy, and Strontium) has been using a flaw in Google's caching of Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) to phish targets, Salon reports. To make matters worse, Google has been aware of the bug for almost a year but has refused to fix it... The vulnerability involves how Google delivers google.com URLs for AMP pages to its search users in an effort to speed up mobile browsing. This makes Google products more vulnerable to phishing attacks. Conservative blogger Matthew Sheffield writes in the article that most of the known targets "appear to have been journalists who were investigating allegations of corruption or other wrongdoing by people affiliated with the Russian government." One such target was Aric Toler, a researcher and writer for the website Bellingcat who specializes in analyzing Russian media and the country's relationship with far-right groups within Europe and America... another journa...

    TechRepublic got different answers about Microsoft's new enthusiasm for Linux from Canonical's founder and CEO Mark Shuttleworth, and from Richard Stallman. Stallman "believes that Microsoft's decision to build a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) amounts to an attempt to extinguish software that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve." "It certainly looks that way. But it won't be so easy to extinguish us, because our reasons for using and advancing free software are not limited to practical convenience," he said. "We want freedom. As a way to use computers in freedom, Windows is a non-starter..." Stallman remains adamant that the WSL can only help entrench the dominance of proprietary software like Windows, and undermine the use of free software. "That doesn't advance the cause of free software, not one bit," he says... "The aim of the free software movement is to free users from freedom-denying proprietary programs and systems, such as Windows. Making a no...

    An anonymous reader quotes EW.com: Tonight CBS will premiere the first new Star Trek TV series in 12 years at 8:30 p.m. on the company's regular broadcast network. Immediately afterward, the second episode of Star Trek: Discovery will stream exclusively on CBS All Access -- the company's $6 per month streaming service... CBS saw an opportunity to leverage the built-in popularity of Star Trek to help fuel its fledgling All Access streaming service. The service currently has about 1 million subscribers and the company's goal is to grow it to 4 million by 2020... But once fans watch Discovery, they'll notice the show's production values aren't like a typical broadcast show, but more reminiscent of a premium cable or streaming show. CBS was able to justify spending a bit more money on Discovery since it's going onto the paid tier. Sometimes, you really do get what you pay for. The Los Angeles Times reports each episode costs $8 million -- though Netflix is paying $6 million for each epis...

    An anonymous reader quotes the New York Post: It was nearly Black Hawk down over Staten Island -- when an Army chopper was struck by an illegally flying drone over a residential neighborhood, authorities said Friday. The UA60 helicopter was flying 500 feet over Midland Beach alongside another Black Hawk, when the drone struck the chopper at around 8:15 p.m. Thursday, causing damage to its rotor blades. The uninjured pilot was able to land safely at nearby Linden Airport in New Jersey... "Our aircraft was not targeted, this was a civilian drone," said Army Lieutenant Colonel Joe Buccino, the spokesman for the 82nd Airborne... "One blade was damaged [and] dented in two spots and requires replacement and there is a dented window"... The NYPD and the military are investigating -- but no arrests have been made. The same day a federal judge struck down an ordinance banning drone flights over private property that had been passed by the city of Newton, Massachusetts. But local law enforcemen...

    An anonymous reader quotes Popular Science: Raising cattle contributes to global warming in a big way. The animals expel large amounts of methane when they burp and fart, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide. U.S. beef production, in fact, roughly equals the annual emissions of 24 million cars, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. That's a lot of methane... Researchers think there may be a better way. Rather than ask people to give up beef, they are trying to design more climate-friendly cattle. The goal is to breed animals with digestive systems that can create less methane. One approach is to tinker with the microbes that live in the rumen, the main organ in the animals' digestive tract... Scientists in the United Kingdom last year found that a cow's genes influence the makeup of these microbial communities, which include bacteria and also Archaea, the primary producers of methane. This discovery means cattle farmers potentially could selectively b...

    An anonymous reader quotes the Washington Post: Since it announced a massive data breach earlier this month, Equifax has been hit with dozens of lawsuits from shareholders, consumers and now one filed by a small Wisconsin credit union that represents what could be the first by a financial institution attempting to preemptively recoup losses caused by alleged fraud the hack could cause... In the lawsuit, which seeks class action status, Madison-based Summit Credit Union says that financial institutions will have to bear the cost of canceling and reissuing credit cards as well as absorbing the cost of any fraudulent charges. They will also lose "profits because their members or customers were unwilling or unable to use their credit cards following the breach," according to the lawsuit... "For financial institutions it is important: They bear the financial responsibility for identity theft," said Summit's attorney Stacey Slaughter of the law firm Robins Kaplan. "All of the components tha...

    New Comic: Men Of Distinction

    Tycho: Outside of Twitter or email, I don’t let strangers talk to me on the Internet.  I just don’t do it.  Generally speaking their “insights” about my identity fall into a few very staid categories and I feel confident I’ve experienced the flavor ridges of that particular narrative arc.  I’m not resting on my anodized laurels though: I’m getting into the conversation in a big way, and there’s been some interest in the novel mode of my dialectic. Hey!  The Child’s Play Team has put together a an event this afternoon on our…...

    New Comic: Market Penetration

    Tycho: I’m still thinking about my SCA shit up at last weekend’s Banner War, partly because I got sick there so I’ve had a lot of time to lie completely motionless except for wracking coughs and the occasional turn, as meat is turned on a grill, to let the mucus collect in the other lobe of my sinuses. Here is the comic which recounts a vital portion of the experience.  I always wonder how I’d fare in another context; statistically speaking, “dead at another’s hand in the service of someone I don’t know” is probably the correct assessment. …...

    New Comic: My Thing

    Tycho: Gabriel mostly sat in confusion after the comment at Curriculum Night; he doesn’t really start or maintain beef in realspace. What you think isn’t political - that is to say, what isn’t up for debate - is really just an index of your politics anyway, and quite a robust one.  For me, I don’t think teaching science in science class is a political act.  I grew up in a house where “teaching evilution”...  Well, the fact that we called it Evilution is probably enough information to glean the subtleties of the position.  I live and let live as…...

    New Comic: Dropping Science

    Tycho: There was talk of trying the Leviathan raid, and it sounded pretty good to me, but then I realized that numbers were real and my numbers were very, very low.  I’m much closer now; Greazy-E and I are gonna try to crack the 260 barrier on this afternoon’s stream around 2 PDT.  Stop by? Here’s last night’s Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team game, Anchors Aweigh (Part 4).  Watch live video from Penny Arcade on www.twitch.tv I needed to rest after this one; I was glad to have the break in the middle of the show this time, not merely for…...

    If there's one common element in a lot of anime, it's the almost endless struggle to achieve a dream or complete a mission. From training to make oneself stronger to working a job just to make ends meet, anime is crazy enough to mix the mundane grind with exciting adventure and hijinks for our entertainment. Loot Anime brings us some goodies from anime all about the grind with last month's box featuring: the hilarious action-packed Gin Tama, the stylish action of Soul Eater, supernatural detectives of Bungo Stray Dogs, and dragon turned human dressed up as a maid in Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. What is Loot Anime? It is a monthly mystery subscription box featuring merchandise from anime and manga. There will be 4-6 licensed items with each box, about $60+ in retail value, as well as exclusive Loot Anime merchandise. Check out the video abov...

    [Video games have that rare, magical power to bring folks together. Sometimes, it’s with people in the same room as you via couch co-op. Sometimes, it’s with a bunch of random strangers on the internet. Whatever the case, I love hearing about this kind of stuff. You see it quite often over in the Quickposts here on Destructoid. Vadicta has a much sexier tale to tell. This blog certainly isn’t about bonding with family over a playful game of Mario Kart. It’s about learning! Yes, Vadz threw his hat in the ring for this month's Bloggers Wanted, and he’s now on the Front Page as a result. There’s still one week left to get in on the action before September is over, people!

    During Tokyo Game Show 2017, Koei Tecmo revealed the DLC plans for the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors. The company will be taking an approach similar to how Hyrule Warriors went, with each pack focusing on a different game, and a unique costume for buying all the packs in a bundle. That being said, if you were expecting a new game to be included through the DLC, you'll be disappointed. Read more......

    We're spotting great deals on upcoming PC games this weekend thanks to a stacking 12% off coupon code at GMG, enabling anticipated titles such as Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to get a pre-order discount as high as 25% off. You'll find Standard Edition for $45.82 and Digital Deluxe for $59.83. Interestingly enough, no pre-order bonus has been announced for the game and if this holds true for The New Colossus up till release, it will be a refreshing change of things in our opinion. In sales department, Lara Croft and all things Tomb Raider are on sale at up to 80% off. While most games are cheap, the only one making new historic low price is the newer Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration at only $19 and change...

    Let me take you back for a moment to five-year-old CJ. There I was, playing the family NES in my parents’ bedroom. The system came with Mario and Duck Hunt packed in, so for the first few years that was all my brother and I played. Eventually, we added other games to our collection, notably The Legend of Zelda, and as he got older we were given chances to start renting games. One of those games was the NES classic Contra, and when I first got my shot at playing after my brother died a dozen times or so, it was my turn to watch my swoll soldier get a bullet to the brain with nearly every step he took. Playing solo or together, we sucked at that game. Then we figured out when you shooting those floating capsules you get power-ups. I remember getting the laser and thinking it was cooler than a Ninja Turtle marathon, but it wasn’t until I saw my brother land the spread shot that I realized just what cool really was. ...

    You're looking at a nervous girl. She has a hostage and holds a knife in her hands. There's a gun in yours. You're the only character that isn't in danger, but despite that the situation is as tense as it can get. The main character is never in real danger in a video game anyway. They have their destiny to fulfill. Tokyo Dark isn't the kind of point-and-click adventure that attempts to reinvent the wheel with its narrative. After reading the Telltale-like warning that your decisions impact the story, you're greeted by a somewhat by-the-book supernatural investigation tale. You're with the police. You're searching for your missing partner, but the otherworldly forces at play are much larger than you both. That kind of story. But by mixing design elements of western and eastern games, as well as creating an effective atmosphere with its set pieces, Tokyo Dark managed to grab my attention nonetheless. ...

    It’s not easy being a single man in the city in 2017. There is so much stress to deal with from work, commute, trying to spend time with friends, exercising, eating right, finances, and always trying to improve yourself that it’s possible your brain may become so overloaded that you begin to forget important facts. With so much going on 24/7 for me, it’s easy to miss scheduled doctors appointments, arrive late for a meeting, or completely forget that I’m a homosexual. You might be wondering how exactly does one forget they enjoy frequent trips to brown town for backdoor meetings with the one-eyed head of Slytherin. Well golly, that's just how loaded my brain is on a daily basis. With all these reports, interviews, names, places, uses for pencils, and this whole breathing nonsense to keep track of, I end every day so scatterbrained I can't remember if I like to dine on fish or 10" cut Polish sausage. ...

    Last year marked the release of Your Name, one of the most successful anime films to come out in Japan and worldwide. Your Name wowed audiences with stunningly beautiful animation and evoked many emotions within its viewers while netting some pretty major awards and accolades. Now the creators of Your Name, renowned director Makoto Shinkai and the studio CoMix Wave, have now put their skills to work to promoting the beautiful sites of Canada. The 31 second video seen above features a few locations of the country from: Vancouver, Toronto, Banff, Abraham Lake, Canadian Rockies, Nagara Falls. This tourism campaign is intended for the Japanese market, in cooperation with the Destination Canada, which is owned by the Canadian government. So the Canadian government and its people paid for anime to be ...
    Full in depth review on GamerKnights from the new "Monster Hunter Stories". More: "The Monster Hunter franchise is one of those hardcore titles that can feel incredibly difficult to break into. As the series has progressed the hunting, crafting and strategizing of the titles have become more streamlined and accessible, but never less deep. Enter Monster Hunter Stories, a game just as obsessed with rearing monsters as it is with killing them. Its an easier descent into the madness that is Monster Hunter, and its an absolute blast."...

    Without doubt, the worst thing about the NES Classic Mini (outside of the fact that it was always out of stock) was the fact that the controller cords were ridiculously short.

    Phil writes, "It was exactly fifteen years ago today when the studio of Rare, known for its close partnership with Nintendo, officially was bought by Microsoft, thus making Rare a 100% Microsoft-owned studio to help a budding new Xbox brand build, grow, and gain momentum right out of the starting gate. Throughout Rare's continued and close relationship with Nintendo, the Stamper brothers, the founders and then-primary owners of Rare, sold more and more of their stake in the company to Nintendo. By 2002, the Stampers wanted to sell Rare and turned to Nintendo first to fully hand over their stakes and ownership of their company. Nintendo did not agree to purchase the Stampers' stake, so the bidding war for ownership eventually came down to Activision and Microsoft with the latter becoming the purchaser of Rare for $375 million. Now, an argument regarding whether or not Microsoft got its money's worth from Rare happens to this day, but that's really not the focus of this special......

    There's no doubt that AI has usurped big data as the enterprise technology industry's new favorite buzzword. After all, it's on Gartner's 2017 Hype Cycle for emerging technologies for a reason. While progress was slow during the first few decades, AI advancement has rapidly accelerated during the last decade. Some people say AI will augment humans and maybe even make us immortal; other pessimistic individuals say AI will lead to conflict and may even automate our society out of jobs. Despite the differences in opinion, the fact is, only a few people can identify what AI really is. Today, we are surrounded by minute forms of AI, like the voice assistants that we all hold in our smartphones, without us knowing or perceiving the efficiency of the service. From Siri to self-driving cars, a lot of promise has already been shown by AI and ...

    According to a DevOps report, 90% of the time spent on mobile goes to using mobile apps, and a typical user has installed around 30 mobile apps on his device and spends around 35 hours a month using them (Source). Increased mobile app usage has led software professionals to adapt to DevOps, the only practice that allows them to create and deliver a successful mobile app in a shorter span of time. So, Why Should You Opt for DevOps? Do you want to keep up with the fast-paced world? If your answer is "Yes," you have no other choice but DevOps. Not because everybody is using it, but because you can only accomplish your goals of producing the best in the least amount of time practicing DevOps. Apps like Facebook, Google, Amazon have led users to set high expectations with continuous solutions....

    Mirroring the rise of API-driven applications, realtime is becoming an emerging, omnipresent force in modern application development. It is powering instant messaging, live sports feeds, geolocation, big data, and social feeds. But, what is realtime and what does it really mean? What types of software and technology are powering this industry? Let’s dive into it. What Is Realtime? Realtime could be defined in a more relative temporal sense. It could mean that a change in A synchronizes with a change in B. Or, it could mean that a change in A immediately triggers a change in B. Or… it could mean that A tells B that something changed, yet B does nothing. Or… does it mean that A tells everyone something changed, but doesn’t care who listens?...

    It seems that every day there is a new how-to article about DevOps adoption or a new message in my inbox about why I need DevOps in my life. In software development, trends gain more popularity as early adopters embrace them and spread the benefits of adoption. Often, it’s simply because that’s what everybody seems to be doing and there’s a Fear of Missing Out (FOMO). This leads some organizations to get swept up in fads, some of which are so short-lived that the fad has passed before any real benefits are recognized and it’s on to the next development craze. Today, DevOps is the trend that’s grabbing headlines and attracting all the attention. Some organizations jumped in feet first and haven’t looked back, while others have held out – either because of confusion about what DevOps entails, concerns that it may just be a passing fad, the impact it has on culture or a simple aversion to change. The organizations in the first group are eager to overcome their competiti...

Since I am an engineer who learnd C++ for himselfe I had a look at my favorit C++ book and figured out that it might be useful to use a factory pattern for the message. So a simplified version of my header file looks like this: #ifndef MESSAGE_H #define MESSAGE_H #include <cstddef> class message { public: /** * \brief ~message: * Virtual destructor of the class message. */ virtual ~message(); /** * \brief getMessage: * Creates a message (with new). * * \param[in] size Size of the dataArray. * \param[in] data Bytearray of the message. * * \return If messagetype in the Array data eqal to 0 => new GyroMessage. * If messagetype in the Array data eqal to...

    Lets say that my program asks a user to input a number indefinitely and I appended it in a list. #Given Example: List = [105, 167, 262, 173, 123, 718, 219, 272, 132] what I wanted to do is to randomly pick any of the numbers so my sample output would be: first = [105, 262, 173] second = [167, 123, 132] third = [718, 219,272] Having said, since the user input would be indefinite there will be chances that it would be an odd number. I am currently using random.sample to choose a number from that list and append it in a list, after that I'll append the sub-groups of list to create a list within a list. Would be a great help if anyone answers, thanks!...

Some of these are instruments in and of themselves, and [Wai Lun] — inspired by the likes of Choke and Shawn Wasabi — built himself a midi fighter Midi fighters are programmable instruments where each button can be either a note, sound byte, effect, or anything else which can be triggered by a button. [Lun]’s is controlled by an ATmega32u4 running Arduino libraries — flashed to be recognized as a Leonardo — and is compatible with a number of music production programs. He opted …read more...

    In the early 1980s, there were a plethora of 8-bit microcomputers on the market, and the chances are that if you were interested in such things you belonged to one of the different tribes of enthusiasts for a particular manufacturer’s product. If you are British though there is likely to be one machine that will provide a common frame of reference for owners of all machines of that era: The Acorn BBC Microcomputer which was ubiquitous in the nation’s schools. This 6502-driven machine is remembered today as the progenitor and host of the first ARM processors, but at the time …read more...

    This year at Maker Faire, laser cutters were all the rage. Dremel announced a 40W laser cutter, but it won’t be available for purchase until this time next year, there is no price yet, and therefore doesn’t deserve further mention. Glowforge was out in full force, but the most interesting aspect of the Glowforge — a compact filter system that sits right underneath the laser — was not to be found. It looks like lasers are the next 3D printer. Of course, those in the know have already been using laser cutters for years, and there are options for desktop …read more...

    This is it. After twelve years we finally have a new Star Trek. Star Trek: Discovery (we’re using ST:DSC as the abbreviation) is airing right about when this post goes up. Next week, you’ll have to pay CBS $6USD a month to get your Star Trek fix, and today might be the last time a new episode of Star Trek is aired on broadcast TV ever. Enjoy it now, and hope the theme song doesn’t have lyrics. Also, hope The Orville is a tenth as good as a Galaxy Quest series could be. What’s the best way to describe …read more...

    I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. We all remember it, and we all know what product we’re talking about. Now, with cheap microcontrollers, ubiquitous WiFi, and wearable electronics, there must be a simpler solution. [Jean Paradedel]’s emergency button project is designed to replace those wearable emergency buttons, which usually include an expensive call center plan. [Jean]’s button is based off an ESP8266 module, which sends an email to a care provider if a button is pressed. The whole thing is powered by a CR2032 watch battery and the device’s case was 3D printed. The interface is simple — …read more...

    Our friends at [The Thought Emporium] have been bringing us delightful projects but not all of them warrant a full-fledged video. What does anyone with a bevy of small but worthy projects do? They put them all together like so many mismatched LEGO blocks. Grab Bag #1 is the start of a semi-monthly video series which presents the smaller projects happening behind the scenes of [The Thought Emporium]’s usual video presentations. Solar eclipse? There are two because the first was only enough to whet [The Thought Emporium]’s appetite. Ionic lifters? Learn about the favorite transformer around the shop and see …read more...

    [G6EJD] wanted to design a low power datalogger and decided to look at the power consumption of an ESP32 versus an ESP8266. You can see the video results below. Of course, anytime someone does a power test, you have to wonder if there were any tricks or changes that would have made a big difference. However, the relative data is interesting (even though you could posit situations where even those results would be misleading). You should watch the videos, but the bottom line was a 3000 mAh battery provided 315 days of run time for the ESP8266 and 213 days …read more...
