    By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - The Trump administration has directed NASA to study whether it is feasible to fly astronauts on the debut flight of the agency’s heavy-lift rocket, a mission currently planned to be unmanned and targeted to launch in late 2018, officials said on Friday. The study marks President Donald Trump's first step in shaping a vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. space agency was working on the heavy-lift Space Launch System rocket and Orion deep-space capsule with the aim of sending astronauts to rendezvous with an asteroid in th...

    By Yasmeen Abutaleb WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Details of potential Obamacare replacements by U.S. House Republicans emerged in news reports on Friday, as Republican lawmakers have vowed to introduce new legislation in the coming weeks. Republicans have yet to agree on a single detailed policy proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the signature domestic policy of former Democratic President Barack Obama. One emerging scenario among Republicans is that the millions of people who received health coverage through the expansion of Medicaid would be "grandfathered in," according to the Washington Post....

The UN's Syria envoy, who brought rival regime and opposition delegates symbolically together late Thursday, held separate meetings with them Friday to hammer out the talks' format.

    According to a new study published in the journal Cell, a certain type of fasting diet can trigger the pancreas to regenerate itself. Of course, the researchers advise people not to try this without medical advice. BBC reports: In the experiments, mice were put on a modified form of the "fasting-mimicking diet." It is like the human form of the diet when people spend five days on a low calorie, low protein, low carbohydrate but high unsaturated-fat diet. It resembles a vegan diet with nuts and soups, but with around 800 to 1,100 calories a day. Then they have 25 days eating what they want -- so overall it mimics periods of feast and famine. Previous research has suggested it can slow the pace of aging. But animal experiments showed the diet regenerated a special type of cell in the pancreas called a beta cell. These are the cells that detect sugar in the blood and release the hormone insulin if it gets too high. There were benefits in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in the mouse experi...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: A divided federal appeals court is ruling for the First Amendment, saying the public has a right to film the police. But the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in upholding the bulk of a lower court's decision against an activist who was conducting what he called a "First Amendment audit" outside a Texas police station, noted that this right is not absolute and is not applicable everywhere. The facts of the dispute are simple. Phillip Turner was 25 in September 2015 when he decided to go outside the Fort Worth police department to test officers' knowledge of the right to film the police. While filming, he was arrested for failing to identify himself to the police. Officers handcuffed and briefly held Turner before releasing him without charges. Turner sued, alleging violations of his Fourth Amendment right against unlawful arrest and detention and his First Amendment right of speech. The 2-1 decision Thursday by Judge Jacques Wiene...

    ZeniMax, the parent company of Fallout and Skyrim developer Bethesda, has filed for an injunction against virtual-reality company Oculus over the recent stolen technology case. The company had accused Oculus of stealing VR-related code, and was subsequently awarded $500 million by a Dallas court earlier this month. ZeniMax has now filed additional papers against Oculus, requesting that Oculus' products using the stolen code be removed from sale. GameSpot reports: Specifically, ZeniMax is seeking to block sales of its mobile and PC developer kits, as well as technology allowing the integration of Oculus Rift with development engines Unreal and Unity, reports Law360. If the injunction isn't granted, ZeniMax wants a share of "revenues derived from products incorporating its intellectual properties," suggesting a 20 percent cut for at least 10 years. ZeniMax argues the previous settlement of $500 million is "insufficient incentive for [Oculus] to cease infringing." Oculus, meanwhile, says ...

    New submitter cherishjoo shares a report written by David Katzmaier via CNET: When the first curved TVs appeared more than three years ago I asked whether they were a gimmick. As a TV reviewer I had to give the curve a fighting chance, however, so I took a curved Samsung home to live with my family for awhile, in addition to subjecting it to a full CNET review. In the end, I answered my own question with the headline "Great picture quality, but the curved screen is a flat-out gimmick." Since then most of the video geeks I know, including just about everybody I hear from on Twitter, Facebook and article comments, pooh-poohs curved TV screens as a useless distraction. A curved TV takes the traditional flat screen and bends it along a gentle arc. The edges end up a bit closer, ostensibly providing a slight wraparound effect. Curved TV makers, citing huge curved screens like IMAX, call their sets more "immersive" than their flat counterparts, but in my experience that claim doesn't hold wa...

    An anonymous reader writes from a report via BleepingComputer: Necurs, the world's largest spam botnet with nearly five million infected bots, of which one million are active each day, has added a new module that can be used for launching DDoS attacks. The sheer size of the Necurs botnet, even in its worst days, dwarfs all of today's IoT botnets. The largest IoT botnet ever observed was Mirai Botnet #14 that managed to rack up around 400,000 bots towards the end of 2016 (albeit the owner of that botnet has now been arrested). If this new feature were to ever be used, a Necurs DDoS attack would easily break every DDoS record there is. Fortunately, no such attack has been seen until now. Until now, the Necurs botnet has been seen spreading the Dridex banking trojan and the Locky ransomware. According to industry experts, there's a low chance we'd see the Necurs botnet engage in DDoS attacks because the criminal group behind the botnet is already making too much money to risk exposing the...

    According to Ars Technica, "The Federal Communications Commission plans to halt implementation of a privacy rule that requires ISPs to protect the security of its customers' personal information." From the report: The data security rule is part of a broader privacy rulemaking implemented under former Chairman Tom Wheeler but opposed by the FCC's new Republican majority. The privacy order's data security obligations are scheduled to take effect on March 2, but Chairman Ajit Pai wants to prevent that from happening. The data security rule requires ISPs and phone companies to take "reasonable" steps to protect customers' information -- such as Social Security numbers, financial and health information, and Web browsing data -- from theft and data breaches. The rule would be blocked even if a majority of commissioners supported keeping them in place, because the FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau can make the decision on its own. That "full commission vote on the pending petitions" could wip...

    Lucas123 writes: Toshiba has begun shipping samples of its third-generation 3D NAND memory product, a chip with 64 stacked flash cells that it said will enable a 1TB chip shipping later this spring.

Along with a previous report about Western Digital, Foxxcon, SK Hynix and Micron Technology have now also thrown their hats in the ring to purchase a majority share in Toshiba's memory spin-off, according to a new report in the Nikkei's Asian Review. ...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from ZDNet: A security lapse at a New York international airport left its server backups exposed on the open internet for almost a year, ZDNet has found. The internet-connected storage drive contained several backup images of servers used by Stewart International Airport, but neither the backup drive nor the disk images were password protected, allowing anyone to access their contents. Since April last year, the airport had been inadvertently leaking its own highly-sensitive files as a result of the drive's misconfiguration. Vickery, who also posted an analysis of his findings, said the drive "was, in essence, acting as a public web server" because the airport was backing up unprotected copies of its systems to a Buffalo-branded drive, installed by a contract third-party IT specialist. When contacted Thursday, the contractor dismissed the claims and would not comment further. Though the listing still appears on Shodan, the search engine for unprotect...

    As many as five major Hollywood studios have been working with cinema owners to shrink the traditional release window and allow consumers to rent movies on-demand in as little as 17 days after they hit theaters, reports Variety. From the article: Warner Bros. and Universal have been the most aggressive in pursuing an arrangement that would see certain movies receive a premium video-on-demand release within weeks of their theatrical premieres, but now other studios are joining the discussions. Twentieth Century Fox has also begun to talk early releases with theater owners, while Sony is having its own separate talks with exhibitors and is trying to devise its own plan. Paramount, which previously did a pilot program with AMC and a few other exhibitors to release "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" and "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension" on digital platforms early, has continued to seek a similar strategy. Though different studios are exploring different scenarios, the plan th...

    From a report on Axios: Aerospace manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus cannot produce airplanes fast enough to meet demand despite what the Wall Street Journal calls "one of the industry's steepest production increases since World War II."

Manufacturers will need to increase production by 30% to meet current orders, and such booming demand is one sign of a healthier global economy. ...

    Just a heads up: I took down the gunshow facebook page and will delete the gunshow twitter since I got no use for em anymore once Gunshow ceases to update at the end of the year. I feel like not a lot of people are realizing this is for true or just don't read this blog down here. OH WELL...

    Tycho: Hey!  I backed Banner Saga hard, like, so hard that I got to write a Godstone for the sequel and create an item and stuff.  I was asked to help with a promotion for The Banner Saga 3, and I know the second one was a rough ride for the studio so I said yes several times in rapid succession. They said that I could make three to five items for Banner Saga 3, but if I could make five items instead of three, why wouldn’t I do that?  So let’s go with five.  Also: Twitch Prime is setting up a thing where members can download the original Banner Saga for free through…...

    Tycho: Horizon: Zero Dawn comes out on the 28th here in the States, and March 1st in Europe.  My feeling is that you should buy it. The introduction has a few very interesting moments, and my daughter Ronia was there for all of them; when the game begins, there are many games it could be.  I like the one that it chooses, but they take their time to let things breathe in this unformed space.  They allow the center to bake through. Horizon is clung-to by incredibly strange ideas; Ronia doesn’t know much about the game, other than the fact that the protagonist looks like…...

    New Comic: Up Top

    Tycho: A torrent of generosity from the Internet washed the whole situation away, essentially - but there was an opportunity to make a lasting improvement to their Play Therapy department by supporting the playrooms and stock a new teen room they’d planned.  Travis over at Child’s Play did a write up that includes the overwhelemed response from the hospital; you can find it all here. (CW)TB...

    Tycho: I like Star Wars, not as much as some but I do like it; there’s always new words in there for me to learn.  “The Last Jedi,” as a piece of nomenclature in English, has a lot of potential weight and finality to it because of how “the” works.  “The” abuts singular or plural nouns, and Jedi can refer to one or more completely mad star wizards.  It is ambiguity adorned with uncertain, enigmatic fixin’s; you’re getting it coming and going. When versions of the movie’s title came out translated into other languages,…...

    New Comic: Return Of The Jeed

    Tycho: I know that it totally looks like something we already have a mental construct for, one hundred percent, but it’s not actually that. The official description for Gigantic calls it a MOBA, which, I mean… hm.  I don’t think that’s what this is.  I’m not just being fastidious.  That is to say, I’m definitely being fastidious, but it’s not the only thing.  This came up with Overwatch: if the “classes” you can play as are different characters, that’s not sufficient.  Gigantic is closer to the traditional model, with…...

    New Comic: A Big, Big Love

    Tycho: He’s up to his ass in Thornwatch shit, watchin’ them thornz, but I was able to get him over to watch me lose a few times, which is really all I wanted.  All I needed!  Then he can go.  I think my timing on this one was just wrong; I need to remember that he is like the MCP.  In many ways, obviously, but chiefly in that he is surrounded by a whirling shield, and cultural projectiles must be carefully timed to pass through. A thousand years ago, when webcomic was written as two words, there was a style of comic called “Two Guys On A Couch.”  This…...

    One of the oldest wrestling video game series (and one in which famed Suda 51 got his start making games) appears to be getting its first installment since 2012, as Spike Chunsoft has launched a teaser site and video titled "Pro Wrestling." Not only that but it appears to be just the fifth game in the long-running series's history to officially be localized in the west, as the "Pro Wrestling" Twitter account name is "3/2 in San Francisco." Whatever they plan to show on March 2 in San Francisco (cough cough GDC), they likely wouldn't bother doing in the states if they had no plans to release it there. The first games in the series to be localized were Fire Pro Wrestling A localized as Fire Pro Wrestling, and Fire Pro Wrestling 2 for the Game Boy Advance, followed by Fire Pro...

    We're a week out from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and most of what I've seen (and played) is somewhat context-free open-world gallivanting.

Enter all the folks currently playing Breath of the Wild and discovering a treasure trove of...horndoggery?

    Next week marks the 21st anniversary of the Pokemon franchise. To celebrate, Niantic is holding a small event to commemorate "Pokemon Day." From February 26 until March 6, every Pikachu in the game will be wearing a festive party hat. There's a photo below for anyone interested in what they look like. Players will be able to keep this special Pikachu forever. There was no mention of whether or not Raichu or Pichu will have hats, but I would assume at least Raichu does (since the Christmas variation did). Pokemon Day is on February 27, which is the date that Red and Green were released in Japan. Pikachu Parties in Pokémon GO! [Pokemon] ...

    Its sales week over at Bethesda as the publisher is scattering their catalog of games at a discount across multiple retailers, with some PC titles hitting respectable pricing. The biggest deal of the bunch should be Dishonored 2, which has hit a new historic low price of $26.99. Mixing in with the Bethesda is also an "Intel Core i7-inside" sale, where select popular titles are discounted at GMG. We suspect as AMD's Ryzen 7 gets introduced more to the market, Intel will continue with more marketing promotions like these to keep PC gamers in their ball court. Noteworthy of the other group of Bethesda deals are Fallout 4 and Doom - both now $19.99 a piece for the Steam copy over at DLGamer. If you want the Season Pass, Fallout 4's Seaso...

    New media that's based on existing characters from another medium almost always runs into something of a stumbling block. Even though it's a new project, it's often beholden to the canon of the original. Those stories caught on for a reason and it's understandable that the property holder doesn't want someone coming in and mucking that all up. In an interview with IGN at DICE, Marvel says that it has a looser mindset with its video games that are currently in production. According to Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann "We want to give [developers] freedom to tell their story and we want to make it an original story." He cited Insomniac's Spider-Man having a white chest piece as a deliberate move to message that these developers don't have to paint by the numbers. Elaborating with a pretty good analog, Rosemann said "We ...

    The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences held the 20th annual D.I.C.E. Awards last night in Las Vegas, and unlike last year, the game of the year selection isn't bound to shock. It was Overwatch! Other highlights include Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Inside, both of which also took home multiple awards, and both of which are also generally thought of as excellent games. Even though it's only February, I feel like I'm already so far into 2017, so it's nice to take a moment to reflect on last year. Find the full list of winners below. ...

    Clear the next three minutes from your schedule. Maybe six. The Horizon Zero Dawn launch trailer is good enough that you may want to watch it twice. It's a stylish mixture of entrancing tribal rituals and cinematic robo-dino fighting. The gorgeous vistas are just the cherry on top. It doesn't come as much surprise that the launch trailer is good because the source material appears to be good. Horizon Zero Dawn reviews posted earlier this week, and it's receiving near-universal praise. We gave it a 7.5, but many outlets were north of 8.0. At time of writing, review aggregator OpenCritic has 49 of 67 reviews sitting at 8.5 or higher. It seems we have a hit on our hands. Next week, you can decide for yourself if open-world robotic dinosaur hunting is your kind of thin...

    Twitch is currently holding a promotion that is far too complicated to spell out in a simple headline. Right now, The Banner Saga 1 is free for all Twitch Prime members until February 28. Then on March 2 until March 6, The Banner Saga 2 will be free. Twitch will donate $1 to the Kickstarter for The Banner Saga 3 for every person who plays either one of those games through the Twitch launcher during those periods. If you're worried this is because the campaign is currently not funded, put your fears to rest; the game has easily surpassed its $200,000 goal and this effort seems to be solely for the extra stretch goals. Twitch will match up to $200,000, effectively granting all current stretch goals for the upcoming game. All Twitch Prime users who participate will also get some unspecified content in The Banner Saga 3, should you need more incentive to take...

    "All companies are technology companies these days," says Peter Richards, a former CIO and CTO at large banks like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, and Bear Stearns. That's why DevOps is so critical to modern business — the cultural qualities and practices central to DevOps help organizations develop an organic relationship between technology and business direction while enabling tighter feedback loops for faster learning. In this new world, the CIO's role has changed dramatically, Peter says. Rather than simply taking direction from business executives, the CIO should play as much a role in defining the direction of the business as any other C-level executive. ...

    As we stated in the introduction to this blog post series, our purpose is to give you insight into the issues you should address when you are at the early stages of establishing a cloud security program. If your organization is just starting out on its cloud security journey — whether it’s a rapidly growing startup or a more established company — it’s important to develop a strategic security road map that’s suited to its early-stage maturity level. You should not reasonably expect to go from no security or rudimentary security to a full-blown, encompassing program in one step. It’s far better to take a graduated approach by defining objectives that will give you reasonable protection now, that won’t drain your budget and resources (and possibly divert critical resources and attention away from your company’s primary business goals). This will als...

    Is the Actor Model just a new "shiny object" for developers to chase after, a fad soon to be abandoned? In fact, the Actor Model was first designed in 1973–over 20 years before brands like Yahoo! and Hotmail first showed up on the young internet. Created to address the long-term direction of computing and software development, the Actor Model is almost as old as object-oriented programming itself, and, according to Forrester Research in a recent webinar, is seeing “renewed interest as cloud concurrency challenges grow." Fast forward to 2017, where we are faced with an online and mobile world that continues to grow exponentially, and a third wave of IoT aims to add hundreds of billions of connected devices to our lives.  To manage today’s demanding needs and to prepare f...

    arr = ["mincraft", "Star"] inputs = ["minecraft?s update", "StarWars", "Babe"] i = 0 while i != len(inputs): if any(words in inputs[i] for words in arr): print inputs[i]; i += 1 This code outputs Starwars, how do I make it so that the string from arr (Star) will be printed instead of the string in inputs (StarWars)...

    I have an object called totalRevenue which is responsible for storing stacked revenue of company on a monthly basis. var totalRevenue = { jan : 147, feb : 290, mar : 400 }; Not all month names are present in totalRevenue object & they are created dynamically when populating/estimating their respective values. In the beginning of every month, we estimate revenue of that month using an algorithm. sth like this: with(totalRevenue){ mar = mar - feb; // here we calculate pure mar revenue feb = feb - jan; // here we calculate pure feb revenue apr = mar - feb; // this is part one of the algo. } (I'm using with construct to avoid repetition.) Now I'm using totalRevenue.apr for the rest of algo computations. But after some challenge, I got that totalRevenue.apr = undefined !! Does anyone know why?! As I expected it to have a v...

    Hello I am trying to add increment in my all form fields from zero to the number whenever I add new clone it assigns the next number to the name tag, I tried all the ways but no any methods works for me. Here is my fiddle https://jsfiddle.net/o5wam5r2/ and here is my JS code var formItem; $(document).ready(function() { //Clone and remove your div instead of hiding it formItem = $('.ScheduleextraPartTemplate').clone(); $('.ScheduleextraPartTemplate').remove(); formItem.addClass('clone clone-1'); $('#Schedulecontainer').append(formItem); }); $(document).on('click', '#ScheduleaddRow', function() { var cloneForm = $('.clone').last().clone(); var cloneNum = $('.clone').length; cloneForm.removeClass('clone-'+cloneNum).addClass('clone-' + (cloneNum+1)); var date = cloneForm.find('[name="txtSchedule"]').val(); cloneFo...

    What’s the minimal BOM for a working amateur radio transmitter? Looks like you can get away with seven parts, or eight if you include the walnut. You’ve got to have a walnut. Some hams really love the challenge of QRP, or the deliberate use of low-power transmitters to provide a challenge to making long-distance contacts. We’ve covered the world of QRP before and noted that while QRP rigs don’t throw a lot of power, it doesn’t mean that they need to be simple. Some get quite complex and support many different modulation schemes, even digital modes. With only a single …read more...

    As much as we’d like to have the right tools for the right job all of the time, sometimes our parts drawers have other things in mind. After all, what’s better than buying a new tool than building one yourself from things you had lying around? That’s at least what [Saulius] must have been thinking when he needed a thermometer with a digital output, but only had a dumb, but feature-rich, thermometer on hand. Luckily, [Saulius] had a webcam lying around as well as an old thermometer, and since the thermometer had a LCD display it was relatively straightforward to …read more...

    Over on YouTube, [GumpherDM3] built one of the greatest musical projects we’ve seen in a long time. It’s an analog synthesizer that is one of a kind. It’s going to stay one of a kind, too: no one would ever want to copy this mess of wires and perfboard that was successfully turned into a complete musical instrument. The design of this synth is what you would expect from something that draws its inspiration from semimodular synths such as the Minimoog and Korg MS20. There are four VCOs on this synth, two audio and two used for the LFOs. A …read more...

    You think you’re good at soldering? Can you solder a CPU? A CPU inside an iPhone? A decapped CPU inside an iPhone? Can you solder inside a decapped CPU inside of an iPhone? If you can’t, fear not – someone can, and we found him or her courtesy of a video that [Bunnie Huang] tweeted a while back. There’s not much information in the video, but from what we can gather it comes from an outfit called G-Lon Technology in Guang Zhou. Their Facebook page suggests that they teach cellphone repair, and if they take their repairs this far, we’d …read more...

    Some time back we ran a post on those cheap USB soldering irons which appeared to be surprisingly capable considering they were really under powered, literally. But USB Type-C is slated to change that. Although it has been around for a while, we are only now beginning to see USB-C capable devices and chargers gain traction. USB-C chargers featuring the USB-PD option (for power delivery) can act as high power sources allowing fast charging of laptops, phones and other devices capable of negotiating the higher currents and voltages it is capable of sourcing. [Julien Goodwin] shows us how he built …read more...

    There is an old saying: “In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.” We spend our time drawing on paper or a computer screen, perfect wires, ideal resistors, and flawless waveforms. Alas, the real world is not so kind. Components have all kinds of nasty parasitic effects and no signal looks like it does in the pages of a text book. Consider the following problem. You have a sine wave input coming in that varies between 0 V and 5 V. You want to convert it to a square wave that is high when the …read more...
