    This year, trucks and other heavy-duty motors in America will burn some 3 billion gallons of diesel fuel that was made from soybean oil. They're doing it, though, not because it's cheaper or better, but because they're required to, by law. From a report: The law is the Renewable Fuel Standard, or RFS. For some, especially Midwestern farmers, it's the key to creating clean energy from American soil and sun. For others -- like many economists -- it's a wasteful misuse of resources. And the most wasteful part of the RFS, according to some, is biodiesel. It's different from ethanol, a fuel that's made from corn and mixed into gasoline, also as required by the RFS. In fact, gasoline companies probably would use ethanol even if there were no law requiring it, because ethanol is a useful fuel additive -- at least up to a point. That's not true of biodiesel. "This is an easy one, economically. Biodiesel is very expensive, relative to petroleum diesel," says Scott Irwin, an economist at the Uni...

    If regulatory concerns aren't enough to explain Bitcoin's 50 percent slump from its record high reached last month, how about blaming it on the moon? An anonymous reader writes: The Lunar New Year, which marks the first day of the year in the Chinese calendar, is being cited by some as contributing to Bitcoin's slump as Asian traders cash out their cryptocurrencies to travel and buy gifts for the holiday that starts Feb. 16 this year. The festivity is celebrated not just in China, but in other Asian countries including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea and Thailand. "The January drop is a recurring theme in cryptocurrencies as people celebrating the Chinese New Year, aka Lunar New Year, exchange their crypto for fiat currency," said Alexander Wallin, chief executive officer of trading social network SprinkleBit in New York. "The timing is about four to six weeks before the lunar year, when most people make their travel arrangements and start buying presents." ...

    An anonymous reader shares a report: For decades, the donation bin has offered consumers in rich countries a guilt-free way to unload their old clothing. In a virtuous and profitable cycle, a global network of traders would collect these garments, grade them, and transport them around the world to be recycled, worn again, or turned into rags and stuffing. Now that cycle is breaking down. Fashion trends are accelerating, new clothes are becoming as cheap as used ones, and poor countries are turning their backs on the secondhand trade. Without significant changes in the way that clothes are made and marketed, this could add up to an environmental disaster in the making. [...] The tide of secondhand clothes keeps growing even as the markets to reuse them are disappearing. From an environmental standpoint, that's a big problem. Already, the textile industry accounts for more greenhouse-gas emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined; as recycling markets break d...

The broadcaster, NHK, corrected itself five minutes later and apologized for the error on its evening news (Editor's note: the link may be paywalled; alternative source). The initial texts cited J-Alert, a system used by the government to issue warnings to its citizens about missiles, tsunamis and other natural disasters. But NHK later said that the system was not to blame for the false alarm. Makoto Sasaki, a spokesman for NHK, apologized, saying that "staff had mistakenly operated the equipment to deliver news alerts over the internet." ...

    An anonymous reader shares a report: Opposition members of the Philippine Congress raised concern on Wednesday that China Telecom Corp, which may enter the Philippine industry, could be a "Trojan horse" aimed at giving China access to state secrets. The Southeast Asian country aims to name a third telecom operator within the first quarter that will break the duopoly of PLDT and Globe Telecom State-run China Telecom has been named as a possible investor in that third entity. President Rodrigo Duterte, who has warned both PLDT and Globe to shape up or face competition, has welcomed Chinese entities specifically to become the third telecoms operator. Beijing has selected China Telecom to invest in the Philippines, according to Philippine officials, but it would need to partner with a local company as it cannot operate alone under the law. China Telecom's presence in the Philippines, however, does not sit well with some lawmakers, given China's telecommunications expertise and sophisticate...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Guardian: In 1545 disaster struck Mexico's Aztec nation when people started coming down with high fevers, headaches and bleeding from the eyes, mouth and nose. Death generally followed in three or four days. Within five years as many as 15 million people -- an estimated 80% of the population -- were wiped out in an epidemic the locals named "cocoliztli." The word means pestilence in the Aztec Nahuatl language. Its cause, however, has been questioned for nearly 500 years. On Monday scientists swept aside smallpox, measles, mumps, and influenza as likely suspects, identifying a typhoid-like "enteric fever" for which they found DNA evidence on the teeth of long-dead victims. Scientists now say they have probably unmasked the culprit. Analysing DNA extracted from 29 skeletons buried in a cocoliztli cemetery, they found traces of the salmonella enterica bacterium, of the Paratyphi C variety. It is known to cause enteric fever, of which typhoid ...

    A Lockheed Skunk Works executive implied last week at an aerospace conference that the successor to one of the fastest aircraft the world has seen, the SR-71 Blackbird, might already exist. Previously, Lockheed officials have said the successor, the SR-72, could fly by 2030. Bloomberg reports: Referring to detailed specifics of company design and manufacturing, Jack O'Banion, a Lockheed vice president, said a "digital transformation" arising from recent computing capabilities and design tools had made hypersonic development possible. Then -- assuming O'Banion chose his verb tense purposely -- came the surprise. "Without the digital transformation, the aircraft you see there could not have been made," O'Banion said, standing by an artist's rendering of the hypersonic aircraft. "In fact, five years ago, it could not have been made." Hypersonic applies to speeds above Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound. The SR-71 cruised at Mach 3.2, more than 2,000 mph, around 85,000 feet. "We coul...

    Ars Technica reports that "hackers have been finding partial vulnerabilities in early versions of the [Nintendo] Switch firmware throughout 2017." They have discovered a Webkit flaw that allows for basic "user level" access to some portions of the underlying system and a service-level initialization flaw that gives hackers slightly more control over the Switch OS. "But the potential for running arbitary homebrew code on the Switch really started looking promising late last month, with a talk at the 34th Chaos Communication Congress (34C3) in Leipzig Germany," reports Ars. "In that talk, hackers Plutoo, Derrek, and Naehrwert outlined an intricate method for gaining kernel-level access and nearly full control of the Switch hardware." From the report: The full 45-minute talk is worth a watch for the technically inclined, it describes using the basic exploits discussed above as a wedge to dig deep into how the Switch works at the most basic level. At one point, the hackers sniff data comin...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from TechCrunch: A lawsuit filed today by the attorneys general of 22 states seeks to block the Federal Communications Commission's recent controversial vote to repeal Obama era Net Neutrality regulations. The filing is led by New York State Attorney General Schneiderman, who called rollback a potential "disaster for New York consumers and businesses, and for everyone who cares about a free and open internet." The letter, which was filed in the United States District Court of Appeals in Washington, is cosigned by AGs from California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Washington DC. "An open internet -- and the free exchange of ideas it allows -- is critical to our democratic process," Schneiderman added in an accompanying statement. "The repeal of net neutrality would turn i...

The technology was initially designed for sports content, so the AP is starting its integration on it...

    New Comic: Dark Magics

    Tycho: I’ll talk to Gabe later about changing the first i to a capital I, but since it’s in the original script I suspect it’s gonna have to be something I do myself with tools I fashion from wood and stone.  Sometimes I can convince Kiko to do it in secret.  I might be getting him in trouble, there. I have to admit that I’ve been quite startled by the viewership on Twitch for a few recent events, but this is what happens when a piece of content floods a new viewership into the platform.  When I saw the OWL running on Wed - didn’t see the new one on…...

    New Comic: NFL DLC

    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…...

    New Comic: A Changing Market

    Tycho: The vaunted Overwatch League manifests later today, five or so hours after I post this.  I’ve been spending all my time trying to reclaim New York from the ravages of a manufactured disease and also from man who is the real monster, so this is the most Overwatchy I’ve been in a while. 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,…...

    New Comic: Owls

    Tycho: I knew that there was one Paul Brother, because he got in trouble a few months ago for heaping expensive furniture into a pool and then setting it on fire.  When Yoda said “there is another,” that was ultimately an expression of hope and joy.  This is a situation where there is another except it’s not the best. I have the privilege - I think that is the term - to not care very much about what these psychopaths get up to.  They are Gods of a structure that’s completely parallel to my life.  So when I say I’m not even mad, I’m really…...

    Bloodborne has a pretty huge following -- even bigger than I initially realized. While I enjoyed my time with the game I've met a ton of people who either love Bloodborne the most out of every Souls entry, or straight-up have only played Bloodborne because of its faster combat system. This tenacity has led to some interesting discoveries from the community, including anniversary events and quests for cut content. YouTube creator Lance McDonald has been showing off some of this content for weeks now, and as of this week, we have a new video highlighting five new enemies (or NPCs) -- including a skeleton king, slug princess, and a demon of some sort. The fact that we're still talking about this game in 2018 is a testament to From Software's (and by proxy, Hidetaka Miyazaki's) staying power. ...

    There was an amusing moment during last year's Blizzcon where it almost seemed like Blizzard actually had the ego to open a theme park based on their video games. Then we slapped ourselves a nano-second later at what a ridiculous notion that was (although I'd admit I'd have a Season Ticket.)No, it was in fact, "Blizzard World" a new map for team-based shooter Overwatch. The new map is a pretty intricately-designed park featuring areas and references to almost all of Blizzard's bac...

    The first week of the Overwatch League is done, the dust has settled, and the numbers are in. Blizzard is reporting that over 10 million viewers caught the event, with a peak of 437,000 concurrent viewers during the Seoul Dynasty (possibly the current fan favorite) and Dallas Fuel match. All of the action was broadcasted over Twitch, MLG, and "Chinese streaming partners ZhanQi TV, NetEase CC, and Panda TV." Blizzard also notes that the Blizzard Arena (the complex they created for the league) was "sold out" for the first week, and reminds us that there are 35 million Overwatch players currently. It's a big first week for sure, but Blizzard will need to keep up the momentum and grow their audience over time if they want to justify the massive costs they've injected into this endeavor. Making team loyalty skin money in-game is one thing, but they need to keep consistently paying their players to really allow this "league" concept to breathe, and possibly ins...

    After an amazing debut with Rogue Legacy, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Cellar Door Games' attempt at a side-scrolling beat-'em-up. I grew up, as many did, loving every opportunity to play the classics like Turtles in Time or The Simpsons arcade game, especially with friends. Since then, even more games have come out to rekindle that love, the poster child being Castle Crashers.  Full Metal Furies is the newest game to cement itself as a modern classic, and with Cellar Door Games behind it, it's got a good shot.

    Nintendo is really making a mad dash at the start of 2018, a stark contrast to their typical slow burn marketing strategy. In what Nintendo execs call a "crucial" year, they've kicked off a surprise Mini Direct that caught fire, and are now introducing a "new way to play" later today at 5PM ET (or 7AM Japan time tomorrow). That could just be some esoteric way of announcing a new game, or even more footage of an existing game/remake, as Nintendo UK is using a different tone, stating that the announcement is for "kids and those who are kids at heart." I think we're a little too early yet for a Switch 2.0 or a sidegrade at this point, but maybe it's a re-color at most? We'll see later this afternoon. Nintendo Switch [Nintendo] ...

    Eurogamer is reporting that Fable is going to make a comeback in the form of a "brand new, big budget game." According to their sources, Playground, the developer of Forza Horizon, is going to handle the project, which will be an open world action RPG. Just how big of a budget will it garner? Well, Eurogamer's sources estimate "some 200 people" working on it across two of Playground's offices. This concept is in its "early days" though, so don't expect an E3 announcement this year or anything. Eurogamer states that the renewed interest in Fable might be because of Sony's success with Horizon Zero Dawn. Fable is just one of those franchises that refuses to die. I still remember vividly reading previews for "Project Ego," the original concept for Fable dreamed up by professional dreamer Peter M...

    Bob Galen is an agile methodologist, practitioner, coach, and with more than 30 years of experience as a software developer, tester, project manager and leader. We recently sat down with Bob to learn more about what separates mature agile testing teams from the rest, and how leaders can best support those teams in order to consistently deliver working software. Noel: We hear a lot about the requirement of shortened feedback loops, and development, test, and release cycles that deliver continuous feedback. Continuous feedback is certainly a must-have, but what I don’t hear people talk about a lot is how important it is to actually be able to quickly respond to that feedback, and make informed decisions....

    Since its debut in 2013, Docker has exploded in popularity, and the company has completely revolutionized the way we manage applications. Articles no longer discuss the reasons why you should be adopting containers, but speak more about dealing with the challenges involved with widespread container development. Containers add speed and boost performance within the development process, but bring additional complexity in the form logging, orchestration, security, and visibility. However, dealing with scaling issues, their ephemeral nature, and the sheer volume of data involved with container clusters are the challenges that container monitoring solutions like Prometheus and Sysdig can help to address. This guide is designed to help you compare two of the major solutions available for collecting the metrics you need. We’ll ...

    The more data scientists I meet, the more I'm struck by how many come from the world of academia — from physics, chemistry to biology, information science, and more, where they've used machine learning and other techniques to do everything from processing data from accelerators to visualizing molecules to modeling ecology. And when they talk about this work, the operative pronoun is almost always "we." They describe their own teams and their wider fields of study in language that echoes the long academic tradition of collaboration: learning from one other, trading ideas, and celebrating shared successes. Over the decades, that ethos around data science, born in academia, has permeated projects across industry, non-profits, and government where experts embrace collaboration to confront the toughes...

    Online gaming applications get launched with variations and modifications to attract gaming enthusiasts. Every gaming application or software launch is backed by rigorous software testing and quality assurance. However, when versions are checked, it is highly critical for teams to look at earlier testing data and make amends or upgrades on the basis of that test data. Test data management (TDM) is highly critical during the testing lifecycle when the required data sets are needed for assessing the application under test (AUT). The quantum of data generated while testing an application is massive; hence, TDM helps minimize the time spent on processing the data and generates reports that add value to the overall application/software. It also enables integrated sensitive data discovery, business classification, and policy-driven data masking for de-identification and effective implementation of production data within the development ecosystem....

    Researchers have recently announced a vulnerability in PC hardware enabling attackers to wipe the disk of a victim’s computer. This vulnerability, going by the name Joykill, stems from the lack of proper validation when enabling manufacturing system tests. Joykill affects the IBM PCjr and allows local and remote attackers to destroy the contents of the floppy diskette using minimal interaction. The attack is performed by plugging two joysticks into the PCjr, booting the computer, entering the PCjr’s diagnostic mode, and immediately pressing button ‘B’ on joystick one, and buttons ‘A’ and ‘B’ on joystick two. This will enable the manufacturing …read more...
