Kiristyvät päästömääräykset nostavat dieselmoottoreiden valmistuskustannuksia ja mikä puolestaa nostaa pienten autojen hintoja niin korkeaksi, että valmistus saattaa loppua joidenkin mallien osalta kokonaan, kirjoittaa Yle.Uudet, päästöjä vähentävät laitteet nostavat dieselin hintaa Euroopan autonvalmistajajärjestön ACEA arvion mukaan noin 800–2 000 euroa.Huhu kiertää, että eurooppalaiset autonvalmistajat olisivat luopumassa pienten dieselmoottoreiden kehittämisestä kokonaan.Esimerkiksi uutistoimisto Reuters kertoo, että Renault olisi tällaisen päätöksen jo tehnyt.Diesel-henkilöautojen osuus uusien autojen myynnistä on laskenut Suomessa tasaisesti.Ensirekisteröidyistä henkilöautoista alkuvuonna 33 prosenttia oli diesel-autoja, Yle kertoo.

Hubble s deep field images have provided the farthest glimpses we ve ever had of galaxies in spaces.Combining those images with a new telescope view has revealed that there are even more galaxies there than we knew—including a mysterious, new type of galaxy.We are seeing galaxies of a type never before dreamed of, Chris Carilli, an astronomer for National Radio Astronomy Observatory told Gizmodo.This unique view has revealed a population of galaxies heretofore never seen—galaxies that are very rich in cold gas but have few stars.Carilli is one of team of researchers who have been using the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array, or ALMA radio telescopes, to take another look at the same parts of space as the Hubble s deep field images.Neither Hubble nor ALMA can see the whole picture on their own.

A photo of First Lady Michelle Obama's passport from a dump of the e-mail of White House contractor Ian Mellul.Mellul's password may have been in a 2013 Adobe user data breach.On September 21, a dump of an e-mail account belonging to a White House contractor was posted to the "hacktivist" website DCleaks.com.This is the same site that already revealed e-mails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Navy captain leading a weapons procurement program, and a public relations person who has done advance work for Hillary Clinton.The latest victim did advance work for travel by First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.Attributing the leak will be difficult because, as with previous "dumps" published on DCleaks, the compromised account's password information was widely available on the Internet from a previous data breach.

According to statistics, we currently use 1.5 times the entire resources available on this planet to sustain ourselves each year, meaning that it takes the Earth about 1 year and 5 months to rebuild the resources consumed by us in just one year.While running out of the planet s resources sounded like a rather distant threat even a few decades ago, it is now a very real and existent, no longer dismissable as a concern for future generations.It is somehow admirable to hear terms like ecological balance and sustainable living spew forth from the mouths of Oxford scholars and political candidates; having a gentle heart that weeps for the indiscretions against the world in which houses us is certainly good for business.But truly, how far are we prepared to go in order to save Planet Earth from the inevitable collapse it has been prophesied to have by scientists, not priests in the few coming years?We, as humans, may have finally got around to acknowledging the harm we have done to our environment, but we are still not even close to reeling back from the damage we have done so far.To be amongst the selected few who have actually risen up and spent day and night to actually do something for a sustainable future, it is harsh to have the subject of your life s work dismissed as a mere buzzword.

Canary has launched a new security camera product called the Canary Flex; it is small, smart, and can be used outdoors, withstanding things like rain and wind to stand ever vigilant over your home.The camera sits idle, and starts recording when it detects movement.If something particularly odd — at least in the camera s estimation — comes into view, it ll fire off a push notification to its owner.Overtime, Flex will better understand what kind of things are worth sending notifications about and which ones are, while unusual, of no particular interest or importance.The Canary Flex is the company s second camera, joining the previously launched and still available Canary.In that case, the camera also served as an air monitor; the Flex camera, though, is just a security camera, though it promises to touch all the bases a consumer would need for home monitoring.

YouTube is famously terrible at announcing site changes, and the upcoming rollout of its community features are thus far no different.Yesterday it created a programme to enlist users as moderators, and it s bound to be a goddamn mess.The video—posted to the YouTube Help channel and entitled Getting Started with YouTube Heroes —gives a high-level explanation of what moderation will look like.Users who apply for and are accepted into the programme will gain points for things like writing subtitles, reporting content that violates the community guidelines, or shar ing knowledge with others.Points count towards a vague, gamified levelling system.At level 3, moderators don t make me use the word heroes in this context, YouTube are able to flag videos en masse and moderate community content.

A total of 430 million videos had been uploaded as of June since its launch in May 2014.While YouTube has long been blocked in mainland China, the country hasn t had an exact equivalent to YouTube yet.Although a number of local YouTube wannabes allowed user-generated videos from early on and established advertising-based revenue sharing programs later, the user-generated video business has never been significant either in viewership or revenue generation.To be relevant in the China market those sites turned to TV shows, movies and more recently original shows, with a business model close to Hulu s.It is believed China s YouTube will eventually come into being, and its main stage will be on mobile.By contrast, Chinese short video platforms have just begun monetization efforts.Miaopai started receiving revenues through some marketing campaigns in the latter half of 2015, Han Kun, CEO of Yixia Technology, said so in an interview.Liu Zhengxin, senior vice president of the company, believed their future revenues for short videos would mainly be from advertising.China s online video advertising market increased 48 percent year-over-year to 8.4 billion yuan about $1.25 billion USD , with more than 60% from mobile, in the second quarter this year, according to internet market research firm iResearch.Online video advertising as a percentage also surpassed 10% of China s total online advertising sales for the first time ever earlier this year.But so far almost all video ads are located in long-form videos, such as drama series or game shows, on major video sites.

Kommer till Netflix fyra månader senare än planerat.Längtar du efter den nya Star Trek-serien får du tyvärr vänta några månader extra, detta då premiären har skjutits upp från januari till maj. Anledningen är att det helt enkelt har tagit mer tid än beräknat att få alla bitarna på plats.Star Trek: Discovery utspelas tio år före original-serien från 1960-talet och tanken är att vi ska följa besättningen på rymdskeppet USS Discovery på dess upptäcktsfärd i världsrymden.Någon koppling till de nuvarande filmerna tycks det inte vara tal om.I USA kommer serien att visas på CBS All Access, men på den här sidan Atlanten är det Netflix som gäller.Första säsongen kommer att bestå av 13 avsnitt, om det blir fler säsonger än så återstår att se.
