I am a leaf on the wind, a zen master, and a techno-guru who inspires calm and balance in all those who gaze upon me.In one month I managed to complete a 10-minute meditation session 11 times, including one stretch that lasted for five days straight.Essentially it consists of a very simple concept: someone tells you to breathe in, then breathe out, and you think calm thoughts.I’m making this up, but you get the gist: it helps you focus your thoughts.Headspace reminded me about upcoming sessions, congratulated me on completed ones, and sent me helpful information between.The app took me by the hand, and each session spent less time explaining the process than the one before.

Olyckan i Ludvika är knappast första gången ett brobygge fått ödesdigra konsekvenser.Två arbetare dog och tre skadades när delar av gjutformen till ett brospann över Älandsfjärden gav vika i maj 2008.Bron är 770 meter lång och delen som rasade befann sig 20-25 meter över marken.Ett viktigt skäl var att olycksorsaken inte kunnat fastställas i detalj.Djurbron över E6 norr om KunsgbackaArbetet med en 64 meter lång och 32 meter bred djurbro, en ekodukt, över E6 norr om Kunsgbacka fick avbrytas i januari i år sedan knäckande ljud hörts i samband med gjutning.

(Reuters) — Indian e-commerce player Flipkart has sweetened its buyout offer for smaller rival Snapdeal to between $900 million and $950 million, two people familiar with the negotiations said, adding that the new proposal is being evaluated by Snapdeal’s board.Reuters previously reported that Snapdeal had earlier this month rejected Flipkart’s initial bid of between $800 million and $850 million as its board was unsatisfied with the offer and the payment terms.Flipkart’s revised offer was made for Snapdeal’s marketplace and its e-commerce solutions provider Unicommerce but does not include its logistics arm Vulcan Express and digital payments unit FreeCharge, which may be sold separately, said the sources, who did not want to be named as the discussions are not public.One of the sources said Flipkart may hold back about $150 million of the deal price for 12-24 months after the consummation of a deal.Infibeam, a listed e-commerce player, has also made an offer for Snapdeal, the sources said, adding that the Snapdeal board is likely to consider the proposal.Details of the Infibeam offer were not immediately available.

All things being equal, and with the free Aomei Backupper Standard they pretty much are, we’re generally going to opt for the latter.Backupper Standard’s bitmapped interface may be retro, but the layout and workflow are so intuitive, even beginners should have few problems figuring out what to do.We spotted a couple of mild interface glitches in Aomei Backupper.There are other tiny scaling glitches, such as the bottom of a dialog cut off, but nothing that renders the program unusable.Hopefully this will be addressed soon with a new look and a rendered (drawn in real time), not static bitmapped GUI.Despite being free, there’s little missing from Backupper Standard’s feature set, which includes: imaging, file backup, disk cloning, and plain file syncing.

In a bid to reinvigorate sales in the massive Chinese market, British luxury fashion brand Burberry has, this year, ramped up advertising on China’s popular social media app WeChat.It’s a strategy that’s paid off handsomely for Burberry, which saw a 4 per cent rise in overall sales in the second quarter.That’s more than expected, thanks largely to a resurgence in China, where sales had slowed in recent years.Analysts note the company boosted spending on the WeChat app, which has almost a billion users in China and serves as a multipurpose app, combining social media and shopping services.The company says its advertising campaign on WeChat for the launch of a new bag – the DK88, which retails for almost US$2,000 – saw its customer reach triple on the app.The sales growth in the country was in the mid-single digits above the global growth rate.

The word premature is key; the Sun could sterilise the Earth in as few as two billion years, and engulf it in about five to seven billion years when it turns into a red giant.The answer to this question could tell us about the resiliency of life, and the extreme conditions under which it can survive—or not survive—on Earth, Mars, the frigid subterranean waters of Europa, or some dark corner of the Milky Way.This eight-legged wee beastie (they measure 0.5 mm in length and can only be seen through a microscope) can endure conditions that boggle the imagination, surviving for up to 30 years without food or water, and enduring temperature extremes of up to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).It should come as little surprise, therefore, that these animals, which emerged 350 million years ago during the Cambrian Era, have managed to survive no less than five mass extinctions.Incredibly, they found that these ancient extremophiles will likely survive all natural calamities—from asteroids and supernovae through to gamma-ray bursts and wandering stars—because none of these events are likely to trigger the only thing that can truly destroy all tardigrades: the boiling off of the world’s oceans.Yes, you read that right—it’ll only be when the oceans boil away and the planet is a dry as a bone that the tardigrade family will meet its demise.

When the internet security company Cloudflare decided to engage in all-out war with what it calls a “dangerous new breed of patent troll,” it found a receptive audience with Eric Lesser, who became the youngest state senator in Massachusetts when elected to office in 2014.Senator Lesser, now a 32-year-old in his second two-year-term, was in the same Harvard fraternity as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but says he didn’t really think much about tech until after working on President Obama’s first presidential election campaign in 2007.“I was traveling around with him and carrying suitcases and handling logistics for his traveling team,” he explains.When the campaign was over, he joined then-senior advisor David Axelrod at the White House as a special assistant; he also became involved with the Council of Economic Advisors and more specifically with the agency’s chairman at the time, economist Austan Goolsbee.“That’s really when I started to get exposure to a lot of tech policy and some of the issues,” he says.Indeed, while he’s not sure how much he can do to help Cloudflare, which has a Boston office, a bill that Senator Lesser helped craft will be heard in committee next Tuesday, and it would put a serious crimp in what he calls “shakedown operations” more broadly.

While they don’t need to be tethered to your router, many still need to be plugged into an electrical outlet, which can significantly limit their placement.The Reolink Keen, a full-HD (1080p) pan-and-tilt camera, rectifies this by running exclusively on battery power.The Keen is unique among the cameras we’ve seen in that it comes with a discrete PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor rather than one integrated into the camera.In theory, setting up the Reolink Keen should take only minutes: You just scan a couple of QR codes—one on the camera body, the other generated by the Reolink app—and follow the camera’s voice feedback to connect the app to the camera and the camera to your wireless network.You’re supposed to hold your phone with the app-generated QR code about 8 inches in front of the camera lens for it to scan and connect to your router.This step alone took me more than 30 minutes as the Keen couldn’t recognize the code, and its voice assistant repeatedly told me to “Please run Reolink App, click the ‘Add New Device’ button, and follow instructions to set up the camera.” The is apparently not unheard of as there is a whole section of the Keen’s troubleshooting FAQ devoted to it.

To force oil out of those rocky pores, the acoustic waves produce micro fractures in the rock to increase permeability.In a 2013 article Mr Barak and Mr Bazhal wrote, "the unauthorized and incompetent use of [the] technology swept can cause damage to the subsoil environment, property and threat to the life of staff".Nevertheless, oil and gas companies are continuing to pursue new methods and techniques like this in order to get ever more fossil fuels out of the ground.It's important to note that, traditionally, it has been commonplace for firms to recover only about a third of the oil from an oil field using existing techniques.There are various reasons why new extraction methods are gaining results, but a key factor was the high price of oil in recent years - between roughly 2011 and 2014 the average price of a barrel was $100 or more.In other words, the oil companies invested heavily in research and development at trickier sites, and in some cases are now benefiting from increased extraction.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is very nearly a Le Mans prototype with license plates.Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies built a stunning hypercar, with a whole bunch of race car elements that we haven't really seen in any other road car to date.Either side of the cockpit features Venturi tunnels that shove air around the car and out back to the rear diffuser, which helps keep the rear end stuck to the ground.There's so much negative space around the cockpit, it barely even resembles a car.You might not think there's space for a human in there, but there's actually room for two.The seats are built specifically to contour to the driver's shape, and the buckets are bolted directly to the car's chassis.

GPS, Global Positioning System, is a navigation system with the help of satellites.GPS has today, both military and civil functions, and can be used by anyone who has a gps receiver.This barrier was removed, but if a conflict should erupt, the united states has the ability to stop the access to the GPS for other than their own military.For the gps to work properly, need your receiver (e.g. a mobile phone) to be in contact with at least four gps satellites.Each satellite sends out a signal, which contains information about the location of the satellite when the signal was sent, and what the exact time the signal was sent, which is determined by very precise atomic clocks.The great advantages of GPS is that the system works completely independent of other systems (telephone networks, internet) and requires no transfer of the data to use.

But that attribution raises a new question: Which of the Kremlin's hackers groups attempted the power grid intrusions?Each has its own techniques, broader focus, and motivation—and deciphering which group is behind the attacks could help determine the intended endgame of this latest infrastructure hacking spree, too.As the cybersecurity world's Kremlinologists seek those answers, here's what we know about the groups that may have pulled it off.The prime candidate among Russia's array of hacker teams is a group of cyberspies most widely identified as Energetic Bear, but also known by names including DragonFly, Koala, and Iron Liberty.First spotted by the security firm Crowdstrike in 2014, the group initially seemed to indiscriminately hack hundreds of targets in dozens of countries since as early as 2010, using so-called "watering hole" attacks that infected websites and planted a Trojan called Havex on visitors' machines.Security firm FireEye found in 2014 that the group breached at least four of those industrial control targets, potentially giving the hackers access to everything from power grid systems to manufacturing plants.

Sure, it’s a crass, made up holiday created with the sole purpose of fueling the cold, heartless engine of capitalism — but doesn’t that description apply to most holidays?Amazon kicked off the annual event in 2015 and managed to surpass its own Black Friday sales in that first year, thanks to some pretty deep discounts.Like Amazon itself, however, Prime Day can be a bit tricky to predict.While the company has already previewed some deals ahead of the 30-hour event, deals are revealed all day long, in a bid to keep consumers tuned in.As such, the company’s offering up some pretty deep discounts on its own products and services, from the Echo to Audible, hoping to hook even more people into the Amazon Echo system.Speaking of, Amazon’s also offering a number of Alexa only deals, no doubt in an attempt to make the idea of buying stuff through a talking speaker a little less foreign.

Then imagine being able to bring those creations into the real world with a 3D printer.That’s the potential we’ll see unleashed in the coming months as the perfect storm of technology advancements empower this section of the industry.Apple’s move to introduce AR support at a platform level with ARKit means developers – including hardware developers – can now develop sophisticated solutions for a huge market of customers.They can rely on Apple’s core platforms to develop and deliver integrated solutions that can become part of everyday life.As Apple continues to develop its AR platform we will see it become better at doing things like recognizing walls as well as floors, and see it develop the capacity to recognize objects in the real world.This recently funded Kickstarter project aimed to create a 3D printer for the rest of us.
