    An anonymous reader quotes a report from NPR: Having police officers wear little cameras seems to have no discernible impact on citizen complaints or officers' use of force, at least in the nation's capital. That's the conclusion of a study performed as Washington, D.C., rolled out its huge camera program. The city has one of the largest forces in the country, with some 2,600 officers now wearing cameras on their collars or shirts. In the wake of high-profile shootings, many police departments have been rapidly adopting body-worn cameras, despite a dearth of solid research on how the technology can change policing. "We need science, rather than our speculations about it, to try to answer and understand what impacts the cameras are having," says David Yokum, director of the Lab @ DC. His group worked with local police officials to make sure that cameras were handed out in a way that let the researchers carefully compare officers who were randomly assigned to get cameras with those who w...

    Elon Musk has been granted permission by Maryland to start digging tunnels for his hyperoop transit system that he wants to build between New York and Washington. "Hogan administration officials said Thursday the state has issued a conditional utility permit to let Musk's tunneling firm, The Boring Co., dig a 10.3-mile tunnel beneath the state-owned portion of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, between the Baltimore city line and Maryland 175 in Hanover," reports Baltimore Sun. From the report: It would be the first portion of the underground system that Musk says could eventually ferry passengers from Washington to New York, with stops in Baltimore and Philadelphia, in just 29 minutes. Maryland's approval is the first step of many needed to complete the multibillion-dollar project. Gov. Larry Hogan toured a site in Hanover that aides said could become an entry point for the hyperloop. The state does not plan to contribute to the cost of the project, aides said. Administration officials...

    Freshly Exhumed writes: Axios is working to get details about a revelation on a government website that Vungle CEO Zain Jaffer is facing charges at the Maple Street Correctional Center in Redwood City, California of attempted murder, a lewd act on a child, oral copulation of a person under 14, child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and battery upon an officer and emergency personnel. Vungle is self-described on its website as "the leading in-app video advertising platform for performance marketers," and was founded by Jaffer in 2011. Vungle has since issued a statement: "While we do not have any information that is not in the public record at this point, these are extremely serious allegations, and we are shocked beyond words. While these are only preliminary charges, they are obviously so serious that it led to the immediate removal of Mr. Jaffer from any operational responsibility at the company. The company stressed that this matter has nothing to do with Mr. Jaffer's former role...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from TechCrunch: Google's push to make the web more secure by flagging sites using insecure HTTP connections appears to be working. The company announced today that 64 percent of Chrome traffic on Android is now protected, up 42 percent from a year ago. In addition, over 75 percent of Chrome traffic on both ChromeOS and Mac is now protected, up from 60 percent on Mac and 67 percent on ChromeOS a year ago. Windows traffic is up to 66 percent from 51 percent. Google also notes that 71 of the top 100 websites now use HTTPS by default, up from 37 percent a year ago. In the U.S., HTTPS usage in Chrome is up from 59 percent to 73 percent. Combined, these metrics paint a picture of fairly rapid progress in the switchover to HTTPS. This is something that Google has been heavily pushing by flagging and pressuring sites that hadn't yet adopted HTTPS. ...

    theodp writes: The State of Arkansas will be handing out cash to high school students who pass an Advanced Placement test in computer science. "The purpose of the incentive program is to increase the number of qualifying scores (3, 4, or 5) on Advanced Placement Computer Science A exams," explained a press release for the Arkansas Advanced Placement Computer Science A Incentive Program (only 87 Arkansas public school students passed the AP CS A exam in 2016, according to College Board data). Gov. Asa Hutchinson added, "The Arkansas Department of Education's incentive for high scores on the AP Computer Science A exam is a terrific way to reward our students for their hard work in school. The real payoff for their hard work, of course, is when they show their excellent transcripts to potential employers who offer good salaries for their skills." The tiered monetary awards call for public school students receiving a top score of 5 on the AP CS A exam to receive $1,000, with another $250 g...

    tedlistens shares a report from Fast Company: Axon, the police supplier formerly known as Taser and now a leading maker of police body cameras, has also charged into police software with a service that allows police to manage and eventually analyze increasingly large caches of video, like a Dropbox for cops. Now it wants to add the public's video to the mix. An online tool called Citizen, set to launch later this year, will allow police to solicit the public for photos or video in the aftermath of suspected crimes and ingest them into Axon's online data platform. Todd Basche, Axon's executive vice president for worldwide products, said the tool was designed after the company conducted surveys of police customers and the public and found that potentially valuable evidence was not being collected. "They all pointed us to the need to collect evidence that's out there in the community." [But] systems like Citizen still raise new privacy and policy questions, and could test the limits of ...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: In the beginning of 2017, Twitter said it would take on harassment and hate speech. CEO Jack Dorsey said the company would embrace a "completely new approach to abuse on Twitter" with open dialogue along the way. For months, though, the company has offered few details about what it would do, or when. That changed late yesterday, when Twitter posted a timeline with specific promises on actions it will take. The changes begin next week. On October 27, Twitter will expand what types of "non-consensual nudity" (aka "revenge porn") that it takes action against. The company will already act when a victim complains, but Twitter will soon act even in cases where the victims may not be aware images were taken, instances like upskirt photos and hidden webcams. "Anyone we identify as the original poster of non-consensual nudity will be suspended immediately," the October entry reads. On November 3, Twitter will ban hate imagery in profile hea...

    An anonymous reader shares a report: Now that AlphaGo's arguably got nothing left to learn from humans -- now that its continued progress takes the form of endless training games against itself -- what do its tactics look like, in the eyes of experienced human players? We might have some early glimpses into an answer. AlphaGo Zero's latest games haven't been disclosed yet. But several months ago, the company publicly released 55 games that an older version of AlphaGo played against itself. (Note that this is the incarnation of AlphaGo that had already made quick work of the world's champions.) DeepMind called its offering a "special gift to fans of Go around the world." Since May, experts have been painstakingly analyzing the 55 machine-versus-machine games. And their descriptions of AlphaGo's moves often seem to keep circling back to the same several words: Amazing. Strange. Alien. "They're how I imagine games from far in the future," Shi Yue, a top Go player from China, has told the ...

    Tycho: I try not to spend a hundred percent of my time thinking about the shambling chaos that gnaws at the periphery, but it’s hard not to notice the symptoms. An announcement from EA on one of very few games I follow from them was stark.  In essence, it told me…  well, aside from a signal not to be excited about it anymore because they were going to dismantle the studio and lobotomize the product, it was an exercise in nontent wherever it wasn’t just throwing up its hands and saying “hey, we’re only a gargantuan international money factory. We’re only…...

    New Comic: Second Opinion

    Tycho: Gabe has managed to spread this Battle Royale disease to Kara, and it infected all the people I used to play Destiny with.  I’ve told him repeatedly: this is not the cool game to play.  He doesn’t have the receptors to collate this kind of data.  So if I want to play a game with…  anyone, I’m playing this. Gabe and I found a very nice house with a very nice view, right in the middle of the circle, so we thought hardening it might be a strong play.  What this meant as a course of action was very distinct for each of us, and we both set about doing…...

    New Comic: Interior Decorating

    Tycho: After we talked about Fortnite: Battle Royale last week, Greazy-E installed it on the PS4 here in our office and a stream of people from the building found themselves drawn inexorably toward it.  Except Kiko.  Kiko is staying out on principle. A phenomena that started at Mike’s house and then filtered into our celestial realm here is to spectate the match out and watch your lineage.  Maybe it’s technically the reverse of a lineage, but still.  It’s so engaging that there has to be a way to make it part of the game proper. Having spent more time with…...

    Tycho: I love playing PUBG with Kiko on Wednesdays.  We even have an Emote dedicated to that stream - a chicken drummie with the no symbol around it - that designates us as Team NeverRoast, a fraternal order dedicated to failure in PlayerUnknown’s BATTLEGROUNDS. Kiko sent me a message yesterday night about Fortnite: Battle Royale, which is in many ways a clone of PUBG - a clone of its mechanics, but also apparently its success.  Before this, people mostly talked about how the product had interesting ideas but didn’t understand itself very well.  Now, it’s spoken of…...

    New Comic: Provenance

    Gabe: I’m excited to finally announce that Acquisitions Incorporated is coming to PAX Australia this year! We’re switching things up for this adventure though and moving Ac Inc. to a “galaxy far far away”. That’s right, Omin Dran has opened an AI franchise in the Outer Rim and we’ll be playing Fantasy Flight’s Edge of the Empire. I’ll be taking on the roll of game master for this adventure and my players will be Jerry Holkins, Holly Conrad, Kris Straub, and making his first appearance at the AI table, Jesse Cox.

This is the greatest thing I've ever seen. Also, there's two Hulk Hogans, I think? It looks like they're streaming a wrestling video game in-between actually wrestling each other in a ring.  Update 3: Dr Cube has taken over the show and they're dropping promos for Kaiju Big Battel.

    There has been a surprising amount of Star Control news lately and it's good news, at that. If you missed it, the original creators of Star Control II -- Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III, whose studio Toys for Bob has understandably kept busy with the Skylanders franchise in recent years -- have drawn up plans and gotten approval for a "direct sequel" to the 1992 sci-fi game. This new project, Ghosts of the Precursors, will be a "passion project" developed on their "own time." Here's where they're at: "We are early, early in development, but rest assured, the game will include genuine...

    If you're the type of Destiny 2 player who gets way into Trials of the Nine, it's time for me to play my part as the bearer of bad news. The PvP event will be absent from the game this weekend and next, and the earliest we'll be able to participate again is November 3, 2017, according to Bungie. This postponement is the direct result of an emote glitch that has enabled players to reach otherwise-inaccessible areas. It's one thing to glitch your way through walls in a social space or in a PvE setting, but when it comes to competitive multiplayer, yeah, that's going to be a huge problem. For its part, Bungie says it's "investigating a fix" right now that should be ready during the first week of November. The studio also shared its launch-window event calendar for Destiny 2 on PC: ...

    Last week I woke up at the crack of dawn to grab an extra Super Nintendo Classic to give away on Destructoid and, sure enough, I was met with a line of people at every location I went to -- and few shy about their intent to list it on eBay the second they got home. While I have to hand it to these lanky youngsters for their enterprising attitudes, it royally fucks over the fan on a tight budget. Thus, this contest is for you. Destructoid is giving away a very small Super Nintendo in 2017 in very high demand, a concept that still baffles the mind and puts a smile on my face. It's my favorite childhood system and I want more people to have them. I'll probably continue to give them away until the price returns to sanity. How to enter: Just tell a friend about our humble blog and you're entered to win. If you're overseas we can't ship you one but you'll get the cash equivalent instead. If I'm lucky we'll also have the imported Super Famicom mini to give away as well next m...

    On the very first day, on my very first decision, I sent the children to work. "It's only the 'safe' jobs" I told myself - the cookhouses, to prepare food. The gathering piles, to pick up bits of coal, wood, and steel. "It's for the greater good" I told myself. Less than a day later, I enacted a law watering down people's filling meals into a thin, watery gruel. The people wouldn't be well-fed, but they would have food. "It's for the greater good" I told them all. How far are you willing to go to ensure the survival of your people? How far is too far? What will be left of you, and those around you, when it's all said and done? These are the questions Frostpunk demands of us. Demanded of me. My people would survive this experience, but I'm not sure they lived. ...

    Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash may not be the best game in the Senran Kagura series, but it is one of the better spin-off titles. And like the rest of the series, its guest character DLC is now available for purchase.  Honoka, Ayane, and Marie Rose from the Dead or Alive series, Xtreme 3 specifically, totally gel with Senran Kagura's anime style by the looks of it. You can douse them with all sorts of suspicious liquids for $5.99 each (as each one comes bundled with a doll and flag) or all three for $14.99. There's also a $25.99 complete option with additional costumes if that's your prerogative.  ...

    I'm not sure how to classify the games Jackbox has been putting out for the past few years, but the company sort of invented a new genre. The Party Packs' casual games turn any device with a touchscreen and an internet connection into a controller, so the barrier to entry is nearly nonexistent. They're great to play even with friends or family who don't consider themselves gamers, and the experience is usually fun enough people are willing to come back again and again. Last year, The Jackbox Party Pack 3 was one of my favorite releases. I wrote way too much about the game, justifying it to myself by reasoning that I was really doing five reviews all at once. I promised Chris I wouldn't do that this time, so let's get to it. ...

    Say you have a JAR file and you need to run it as a service. Additionally, you want it to start automatically if/when system restarts. Ubuntu has a built-in mechanism to create custom services, enabling them to get started at system boot time and start/stop them as a service.

    If a class implements the Closeable interface, Groovy adds the withCloseable method to the class. The withCloseable method has a closure as an argument. The code in the closure is executed and then the implementation of the close method of the Closeable interface is invoked. The Closeable object is passed as an argument to the closure so we can refer to it inside the closure. In the following example, we have two objects that implement the Closeable interface. By using withCloseable, we know for sure the close method is invoked after all the code in the closure is executed:...

    We are on the cusp of the API economy: APIs are everywhere, boosting digital transformation and disrupting the way we think, so a shift is also required in the way we develop. APIs are expected to enable automation, in turn driving efficiency, consistency, and cost savings. API quality matters, both for API consumers and implementers. For these reasons, building an API infrastructure from scratch may not be a good idea. It is much easier and more productive to use a good framework or library, often more than one....

XYZ can be one of: "before market open", or "after market close", or simply an empty value "".

    I was trying to solve a linear system Xc=y that was square. The methods I know to solve this are: using inverse c=<X^-1,y> using Gaussian elimination using the pseudo-inverse it seems as far as I can tell that these don't match what I thought would be the ground truth. First generate the truth parameters by fitting a polynomial of degree 30 to a cosine with frequency 5. So I have y_truth = X*c_truth. Then I check if the above three methods match the truth I tried it but the methods don't seem to match and I don't see why that should be the case. I produced fully runnable reproducible code: import numpy as np from sklearn.preprocessing import PolynomialFeatures ## some parameters degree_target = 30 N_train = 31 lb,ub = -1,1 x = np.linspace(-1,1,N_train) ## generate target polynomial model freq_cos = 5 y_cos = np.cos(2*np.pi...

    I'm trying to get the sum of each element of two vectors and push the total to a new vector. ie. a = {1, 2 ,3} & b = {1, 2 ,3} b = a + b c = {2, 4, 6} I've got it working for vectors of the same size, but whenever one of the vectors is larger than the other I get a vector subscript out of range error. a = {1, 2 ,3} & b = {1, 2 ,3, 4} c = a + b I'm assuming this is happening during b[3] + ?? , how would I go about adding it so the output is: c = {2, 4, 6, 4} What i've got so far is: vector<int> a = { 1,2,3,4 }; vector<int> b = { 5,4,3,2,1 }; vector<int> *vPtr; vPtr = new vector<int>; int sum; int size = a.size(); if (size < b.size()) size = b.size(); for (unsigned i = 0; i < size; i++) { sum = a[i] + b[i]; (*vPtr).push_back(sum); } for (vector<int>::const_iterator it = (*vPtr).begin(); it != (*vPtr).end(); it++) cout <&...

    When I implement a string based number in a object as the key, when the object is rendered, its returned as a number instead of a string. This is throwing me off because my original array is reordered and then i want to generate an object based of a number which is an ID within the array row but the issue is, by default, javascript is reordering my object keys by numerical ordered list, instead of the order i tell it to be in. var array = ['1','2','3'].reverse(); var obj = {}; $.each(array, (idx, item) => { obj[item.toString()] = item; }); console.log(array, obj); return is (3) ["3", "2", "1"] {1: "1", 2: "2", 3: "3"} instead of (3) ["3", "2", "1"] {3: "3", 2: "2", 1: "1"} however, this works total fine with non numerical type characters, example below: var array = ['hi','tom','how'].reverse(); var obj = {}; $.each(array, (idx, item) => { obj[item....

    Between manufacturing technologies like 3D-printing, CNC routers, lost-whatever metal casting, and laser and plasma cutters, professional quality parts are making their way into even the most modest of DIY projects. But stamping has largely eluded the home-gamer, what with the need for an enormous hydraulic press and massive machined dies. There’s more than one way to stamp parts, though, and the budget-conscious shop might want to check out this low-end hydroforming method for turning sheet metal into quality parts. If hydroforming sounds familiar, it might be because we covered [Colin Furze]’s attempt, which used a cheap pressure washer to inflate …read more...

    Even the staunchest 3D printing supporter would have to concede that in general, the greatest strength of 3D printing is not in the production of final parts, but in prototyping. Sure you can make functional prints, as the pages of this site will attest; but few would argue that you wouldn’t be better off getting your design cut out of metal or injection molded if you planned on putting the part into service over the long term. Especially if the part was to be subjected to rough service in an industrial setting. While that’s valid advice, it certainly isn’t the …read more...

    We were tipped off to an older video by [AgentJayZ] which demonstrates the proper use of lockwire also known as ‘safety wire.’ In high vibration operations like jet engines, street racers, machine guns, and that rickety old wheelchair you want to turn into a drift trike, a loose bolt can spell disaster. Nylon fails under heat and mechanical lock washers rely on friction which has its limits. Safety wire holds up under heat and resists loosening as long as the wire is intact. Many of our readers will already be familiar with lockwire since it is hardly a cutting-edge technology …read more...

    If you’re working on your own bipedal robot, you don’t have to start from the ground up anymore.

    Most CNC robots people see involve belts and rails, gantries, lead screws, linear bearings, and so forth. Those components need a rigid chassis to support them and to keep them from wobbling during fabrication and adding imperfections to the design. As a result, the scale is necessarily small — hobbyist bots max out at cabinet-sized, for the most part. Their rigid axes are often laid out at Cartesian right angles. One of the exceptions to this common configuration is the delta robot. Deltas might be the flashiest of CNC robots, moving the end effector on three arms that move to …read more...
