Stay on target *This is currently being debunked. Possible PR stunt.Just a few days ago, Razer’s awesome Project Valerie laptop — the one with three 4K displays — was stolen. Now it looks like whoever stole it is trying to unload it.It turns out that the thief (or thieves) didn’t just nab one Project Valerie prototype. They actually got ahold of a pair. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan understandably wants them back, really, really badly. The company was willing to offer $25,000 to anyone who could offer information that led to the prototypes’ return.So where did the laptops end up? Somewhere behind the Great Wall, apparently. Whoever has them isn’t trying to quietly fence them in some dark Beijing alleyway, either. They’ve actually been listed on the immensely popular Chinese e-commerce site Taobao — where they were spotted by writers at Engadget Chinese and Wccftech.For the oh-so-reasonable converted price of $21,733, you can own the world’s first triple-display laptop! The downside (assuming you’re not keen on winding up with a criminal record or being ordered to do community service) is that you’d technically be taking possession of stolen goods.The smarter move would be to exercise your Jedi-like patience and wait for Razer to bring Project Valerie to market. With the kind of publicity this thing’s gotten so far, they’d be crazy not to offer it up for sale.Maybe not at the $20,000 mark, but there are definitely Razer fanatics and gamers out there that would gladly pay a premium for a system like this… These Razer Cases Will Keep Your iPhone 11 Cool While GamingFinally, Razer Is Making a Gamer Toaster
Pope Francis speaks during a meeting with officials, members of civil societies and diplomats at the presidential palace in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 30 November, 2017. Photo: ReutersPope Francis called Thursday for “decisive” international measures on the Rohingya crisis as he began a visit to Bangladesh.More than 620,000 of the Muslim minority have sought sanctuary after fleeing violence in Myanmar.”It is imperative that the international community take decisive measures to address this grave crisis, not only by working to resolve the political issues that have led to the mass displacement of people, but also by offering immediate material assistance to Bangladesh in its effort to respond effectively to urgent human needs,” the pope said in a speech.Pope Francis made his comments shortly after arriving from Myanmar, where he walked a diplomatic tightrope, staying away from allegations that the army is waging an ethnic cleansing campaign against Rohingya Muslims despite pressure to publicly confront the incendiary issue.He praised Bangladesh for taking in the Rohingyas who have flooded across the border on an unprecedented scale since a fresh outbreak of violence in their native Rakhine state.But as in Myanmar, he refrained from using the word “Rohingya”, instead referring to “refugees from Rakhine state”.Pope Francis had been urged not to use the name in Myanmar to avoid provoking hardline Buddhists and making the country’s Catholic community a target.”None of us can fail to be aware of the gravity of the situation, the immense toll of human suffering involved, and the precarious living conditions of so many of our brothers and sisters, a majority of whom are women and children, crowded in the refugee camps,” the pope said.

Check the state of Spectre and Meltdown mitigations on Windows by Martin Brinkmann on October 02, 2018 in Software – 12 commentsSpecuCheck is an open source program for Microsoft Windows devices that reveals the state of Spectre and Meltdown mitigations on the system it is run on.In particular, it returns the state of software and hardware mitigations against CVE-2017-5754 (Meltdown), CVE-2017-5715 (Spectre v2), CVE-2018-3260 (Foreshadow), and CVE-2018-3639 (Spectre v4).SpecuCheckSpecuCheck is a command line tool that returns the state of mitigations against the listed vulnerabilities.Some users may be turned away by the command line nature of the program; it is easy enough to use, however, and does not require elevated privileges.Note: The developer suggests that users use Microsoft’s PowerPoint CmdLet if they can to check the state of mitigations and SpecuCheck only for verification or research.All you have to do is run specucheck.exe from the command line to get detailed mitigation information. The output is detailed; the most important information is whether mitigations are listed as enabled or not.Users or admins who see “Your system either does not have the appropriate patch, or it may not support the information class required” should pay attention as it indicates that the system is vulnerable and not properly patched to mitigate the listed vulnerability.How does it work?[SpecuCheck] uses two new information classes that were added to the NtQuerySystemInformation API call as part of the recent patches introduced in January 2018 and reports the data as seen by the Windows Kernel.The application provides no information or instructions to apply patches to protect the system against Spectre or Meltdown vulnerabilities. A good starting point is to search for the CVE on the Internet to find out how to download and install patches.SpecuCheck is not the first tool to check whether a particular system is vulnerable and patched. Microsoft released a PowerShell tool to check if PCs are affected by Meltdown or Spectre, and there is also InSpectre by Gibson Research which does the same.Closing WordsSpecuCheck is a useful tool to quickly check the state of Spectre and Meltdown mitigations on a system.While it is suggested to use Microsoft’s PowerShell tool to verify the findings, SpecuCheck does provide users and admins with a quick overview of the patched state of the system.Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 5 votes Software Name SpecuCheckOperating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page https://github.com/ionescu007/SpecuCheck Advertisement
A demonstration for AIDS advances in July 2018 in The Netherlands, with Princess Margaret Van Orange pictured at the center. (Credit: Paolo Amorim/shutterstock)I mentioned to a friend, a gay man nearing 60, that World AIDS Day, which has been observed on Dec. 1 since 1988, was almost upon us. He had no idea that World AIDS Day still exists.This lack of knowledge is a testament to the great accomplishments that have occurred since World AIDS Day was created 30 years ago. It is also due to an accident in the timing of his birth that my friend escaped the devastation wreaked by AIDS among gay men in the U.S., before there was antiretroviral therapy.Many people have forgotten AIDS, but there are consequences to forgetting. The fight against AIDS is at a tipping point. Increasingly, there are signs that we may be heading in the wrong direction.The Elusive AIDS VaccineI am a social epidemiologist with more than 20 years of research experience in HIV and STD prevention. I am also the founder of The Basics with Dr. Mo, a sex health communications project that translates prevention science directly for people who need it most.It is true that global HIV/AIDS success stories abound: Mother-to-child transmission can be reduced to below 5 percent, 75 percent of people living with HIV know their status and 59 percent receive antiretroviral therapy.Most recently, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) – the use of antiretrovial drugs to prevent HIV infection among those exposed – has proved to be a successful prevention approach.Yet the prize – a vaccine that can prevent HIV infection – remains elusive, and makes impossible the use of the only known strategy to have ever eradicated an infectious disease: widespread vaccination. That disease was smallpox, in 1980.Seeds of UneaseDespite the lack of a vaccine, in 2016 United Nations member states adopted a political declaration on ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.As part of the accountability framework, interim 2020 goals set a target of 500,000 new HIV infections for that year. A review of the most recent data estimated 1.8 million new HIV infections in 2017, exactly the same number as in 2016.Prominent scientists have already begun to question the ability to eradicate AIDS by the 2030 deadline, and concede that the situation has stagnated. The attainment of eradication looks bleak, without the aid of either an effective vaccine or the immediate large-scale promotion and utilization of existing prevention tools (i.e., condoms, voluntary circumcision and potentially PrEP). Given that the vast majority of new HIV infections are sexually transmitted and that condoms have played a decisive role in the global control of HIV transmission, ongoing condom availability and use will be essential to future eradication.Condoms – both male and female – remain a highly effective mechanism of HIV/AIDS prevention, as well as of other sexually transmitted infections that greatly enhance the risk of HIV transmission.Condom use is also strongly advised by global public health institutions, including the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in conjunction will all other HIV prevention tools including PrEP, because of their lower levels of effectiveness in preventing transmission.Condom availability is a different matter and varies greatly from country to country. Countries with the highest levels of HIV often rely heavily on donor support. According to the most recent data, in sub-Saharan Africa in 2013, only 10 condoms were availableannually for every man aged 15 to 64 (as compared with the recommended 50 to 60), and, on average, there was one female condom available for every eight women. Funding required to maintain – let alone scale up – HIV commitments, particularly those dedicated to prevention, are increasingly uncertain.The hydra, sprouting new headsEven though condoms are an extremely effective barrier method, it is usage that makes condoms efficacious in preventing HIV transmission. Reported condom use varies considerably around the world, and ranges from 80 percent use by men in Namibia and Cambodia to less than 40 percent usage by men and women in other countries, including some highly affected by HIV such as Sierra Leone and Mozambique.Age plays a role, too. Among young people aged 15 to 24, condom use at last sex varies from more than 80 percent in some Latin American and European countries to less than 30 percent in some West African countries. In the U.S., condom use is at the lower end of the spectrum: Only one-third of the population uses condoms, a number that has not changed significantly over the past two decades.The majority – 66 percent – of the world’s HIV/AIDS cases are in sub-Saharan Africa, where there has been much progress, particularly with the provision of antiretroviral therapy.However, there are worrying signs in other parts of the world. There has been little change in new HIV infections in countries outside of sub-Saharan Africa between 1990 and 2017.In fact, six of the 10 most populous countries in the world have experienced 10 percent to 45 percent increases in new HIV infections since 2010: Russia, China, Brazil, Pakistan, Mexico and Bangladesh. Even in countries such as the U.S., where new HIV infections have decreased by 8 percent overall, the rates of change are unevenly distributed. For example, young African-American men who have sex with men show no decrease in new infections; African-American gay and bisexual men represent the largest percentage of new HIV infections: more than one-quarter.The increased provision of antiretroviral therapy to people living with AIDS has had a huge impact on extending life and in preventing new HIV infections. However, there remains 25 percent of the population who live with HIV, about 9 million people, who do not know their status.While we have been necessarily focused on the head of the hydra in sub-Saharan Africa, other hydra heads are beginning to make their presence known, many in countries ill-prepared to deal with increases in the number of new HIV infections.In the absence of a vaccine, behavior change in the form of condom use promotion, acceptance and adoption, at a scale that many gay men utilized during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in the industrialized world, will need to occur. There are many challenges: continued stigma and gender inequality, not to mention issues of availability, distribution and proactive, nonjudgmental promotion.We must not forget. Progress on reducing the rate of new HIV infection has been done before. It can be done again, but only if we take forceful, funded action now.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license. Read the original article.
Last week, the Scala team announced the release of Scala 2.13. This release brings a number of improvements including overhauled standard library collections, a 5-10% faster compiler, and more. Overhauled standard library collections The major highlight of Scala 2.13 is standard library collections that are now better in simplicity, performance, and safety departments as compared to previous versions. Some of the important changes made in collections include: Simpler method signatures The implicit CanBuildFrom parameter was one of the most powerful abstractions in the collections library. However, it used to make method signatures too difficult to understand. Beginning this release, transformation methods will no longer take an implicit ‘CanBuildFrom’ parameter making the resulting code simpler and easier to understand. Simpler type hierarchy The package scala.collection.parallel is now a part of the Scala standard module. This module will now come as a separate JAR that you can omit from your project if it does not uses parallel collections. Additionally, Traversable and TraversableOnce are now deprecated. New concrete collections The Stream collection is now replaced by LazyList that evaluates elements in order and only when needed. A new mutable.CollisionProofHashMap collection is introduced that implements mutable maps using a hashtable with red-black trees in the buckets. This provides good performance even in worst-case scenarios on hash collisions. The mutable.ArrayDeque collection is added, which is a double-ended queue that internally uses a resizable circular buffer. Improved Concurrency In Scala 2.13, Futures are “internally redesigned” to ensure it provides expected behavior in a broader set of failures. The updated Futures will also provide a foundation for increased performance and support more robust applications. Changes in the language The updates in language include the introduction of literal-based singleton types, partial unification on by default, and by-name method arguments extended to support both implicit and explicit parameters. Compiler updates The compiler will now be able to perform a deterministic and reproducible compilation. This essentially means that it will be able to generate identical output for identical input in more cases. Also, operations on collections and arrays are now optimized making the compiler 5-10% better compared to Scala 2.12. These were some of the exciting updates in Scala 2.13. For a detailed list, check out the official release notes.

Greening’s department said the change in aid policy would save Britain about 200 million pounds (US$319 million) by 2015.British Foreign Secretary William Hague discussed the plan Thursday on a visit to New Delhi ahead of the public announcement. “Aid is the past and trade is the future,” Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid said following the talks with Hague.India’s President Pranab Mukherjee, in a previous role as finance minister, had described the British aid program as “a peanut” in India’s overall spending on programs for the country’s poor.Britain’s development ministry said that, despite the cuts in India, it would meet its pledge to spend 0.7 percent of gross domestic product on overseas aid by 2013 _ an international aid target set for the G-8 nations at a meeting in Scotland in 2005.___Associated Press Writer Muneeza Naqvi in New Delhi contributed to this report(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Britain offered India about 280 million pounds (US$447 million) in assistance in 2011, focused heavily on education and health programs for impoverished children.However, many legislators in the U.K. had targeted the development spending for scorn, arguing that Britain, struggling to cut its own national debt, could no longer afford to help a booming nation that has its own space program.“Now is the time to move to a relationship focusing on skills-sharing rather than aid,” Greening said in a statement. “Our own bilateral relationship has to keep up with 21st Century India. It’s time to recognize India’s changing place in the world.”India, which won independence from Britain in 1947, currently has its lowest economic growth in almost a decade. Last month, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund cut their predictions for Asia’s third-largest economy.The World Bank expects India’s economy to grow 6 percent for the year, and the International Monetary Fund forecasts growth of just 4.9 percent, down from its earlier projection of 6.1 percent.Britain is struggling with spending cuts worth about 103 billion pounds ($162 billion) through 2017 aimed at slashing the budget deficit. The cuts will mean the loss of tens of thousands of public sector jobs and harsh welfare cuts. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Associated PressLONDON (AP) – Britain will halt all aid spending in India in 2015 in a significant shift in relations between the emerging economic giant and its former colonial ruler, Prime Minister David Cameron’s government announced Friday.Acknowledging the country’s rising wealth and status, International Development Secretary Justine Greening said Britain would change its entire relationship with India _ seeking to boost trade as it ends its aid program.

14 new Greenfield airports have been granted ‘in-principle’ approval by the Indian government. The airports will come up in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Sikkim, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Puducherry and Gujarat. The Sikkim hub will become the state’s first airport.Route Dispersal Guidelines (RDG) of air transport services have been outlined, with respect to needs specific to different regions in the country. However, the airlines will be able to choose whether to operate in these regions, depending upon their commercial viability.The Greenfield airports will be financed and developed by the airport developer, as per the Greenfield Airport Policy, 2008. Of the new airports to be developed, four will be in Karnataka, located in Shimoga, Gulbarga, Hassan and Bijapur, and a further three will rise in Maharashtra, located in Navi Mumbai, Shirdi and Sindhudurg.The other states and territories will each see one new airport, including Mopa in Goa, Kannur in Kerala, Pakyong in Sikkim, Datia/Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh, Karaikal in Puducherry and Dholera in Gujarat.

The Paris-based arbitration court of the International Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday ruled in favour of the Republic of Cyprus in an appeal filed against the country by the owners of FBME bank.The owners of the bank, which lost the licence of its Cyprus branch in December 2015, appealed to the court seeking €1.5bn in damages from the Republic of Cyprus, citing its failure to protect their investment.In a statement on Tuesday, Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC) spokesperson Aliki Stylianou said that they were “completely satisfied” with the court’s ruling.“It shows the correct decisions were made by the management and staff of the Central Bank of Cyprus,” she said.The Law Office of the Republic also welcomed the decision, saying “it confirms that the Central Bank of Cyprus acted as a prudent supervisory authority and that the Republic did not violate any of its obligations”.FBME, the holding company of Tanzania’s FBME bank, was put into liquidation by the CBC on December 21, 2015, when the central bank revoked its licence.The owners of the bank filed their appeal with the Paris-based court in 2014, where they sought compensation from the state.The Bank of Tanzania revoked FBME’s licence on May 5, 2017 and decided to liquidate the lender.The Central Bank of Cyprus which revoked the licence of FBME’s Cyprus branch and fined it €1.2m for failing to comply with the anti-money laundering law in December 2015, initially placed the Tanzanian lender under administration and subsequently under resolution after US authorities described the lender as a financial institution of primary money laundering concern in July 2014.In April 2016, the central bank also triggered the deposits guarantee scheme to compensate depositors with up to €100,000.The rejection of the central bank’s request for the appointment of a liquidator by the Nicosia district court in May 2017 – on the grounds that it did not serve the public interest – came a week after the Bank of Tanzania, which supervises the mother bank, revoked the licence of FBME and appointed a liquidator itself.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
