Even two similar-looking cells that are supposed to work together in the same tissue might express completely different traits, and make different proteins.Being able to quickly classify lots of cells quick and efficiently has been a difficult task, and previous methods have required looking at one cell at a time, according to a University of Washington press release.But a team of UW researchers have devised a method to quickly and cheaply determine subtle differences between the different types of cells in an organism.They’ve only tested it on worms, but it could one day be used for bigger things.The researchers think, for example, that scientists could use their method to create an atlas “to define the molecular state of every cell throughout the life cycle of C. elegans,” they write in the paper published today in the journal Science.But, with scaling, other organisms—like humans—might come next.

This makes the car especially important to the company, as it offers an early opportunity to create life-long customers.Finding a balance between versatility, features, and affordability has always been the core concept behind the Fit, and it’s a mission that continues on with the 2018 Honda Fit as the automaker looks to keep the car at the top of its game with a mid-cycle refresh.After a few years on the market, Honda was looking to breathe new life in this subcompact and turned to customer feedback for direction, adding “more emotional appeal, both in styling and driving dynamics,” according to Brett Watanabe, Honda’s product planner for the Fit.Along with an updated exterior and reworked suspension, the latter of which includes revised damper tuning and additional chassis bracing throughout the vehicle for more rigidity, the 2018 Fit benefits from tech upgrades like an available seven-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.Also available for the first time in the Fit is the Honda Sensing suite, which includes lane keep assist, collision mitigation braking, and other active safety features.Regardless of which trim level is chosen, the Fit’s power plant remains unchanged from last year — a naturally aspirated and direct injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC motor that generates 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque.

Apparently, the recently launched NOMU S30 mini isn’t only tough on the outside, the rugged phone is indeed able to run some quite intensive games as well.Let’s have a look at the video released by the company.So, as we’ve just seen in the video the NOMU S30 mini is able various games from Mortal Kombat X, to Cover Fire and Moto Traffic Race 2.The smartphone performed as expect with relatively smooth gameplay.That’s because the S30 mini is equipped with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5Ghz, like most octa-core processors.So, of course it won’t be as powerful but it’ll definitely be much more power efficient.

Etelä-Korean presidentti Moon Jae-inin mukaan maa tulee estämään sodan kaikin mahdollisin keinoin, uutisoi uutistoimisto Reuters."Etelä-Korea on ainoa maa, joka päättää sotilaallisista toimista Korean niemimaalla, eikä kukaan muu voi päättää hyökkäyksestä ilman Etelä-Korean hyväksyntää", Jae-in sanoi vuosipäiväpuheessa, jolla juhlisti Etelä-Korean vapautumista Japanin vallasta vuonna 1945.Jae-inin mukaan maan hallitus pistää kaiken peliin, jotta sodalta vältytään.Sanasota Pohjois-Koreaa johtavan Kim Jong-unin ja Yhdysvaltain presidentti Donald Trumpin välillä on herättänyt viime viikkoina pelkoa vakavasta hyökkäyksestä.Pohjois-Korean ydinaseohjelman kehitys on myös aiheuttanut huolta ympäri maailmaa.Jännitteet Korean niemimaalla helpottivat hieman jo aiemmin tiistaina, kun Kim Jong-un ilmoitti jäädyttävänsä suunnitelmat Yhdysvalloille kuuluvan Guamin saaren pommittamisesta.

On Monday, SpaceX is poised to end a 40-day launch drought in the United States with a cargo run to the International Space Station.The commercial space outfit will fire off its 12th resupply service mission for NASA from Kennedy Space Center using a fresh Falcon 9 rocket.On top, a Dragon capsule with over 6,400 pounds of supplies—a typical haul could include a variety of toilet paper (the Russians prefer a rougher texture while the Americans opt for a softer touch), fresh socks, and most importantly, tortillas.Minutes after the booster delivers SpaceX’s Dragon to a preliminary orbit, it will attempt a return flight for touchdown at Landing Zone 1 on Florida’s space coast.Along with the groceries, ISS cargo drops have included hardware like an espresso machine, a handy 3-D printer, and even a relatively huge inflatable module currently being accessed and tested by the crew.In addition to the essentials, Dragon will be carrying enough resources to aid in over 250 research projects.

Lukewarm, not hot, and with a slight metallic zing - the only signs the liquid had, seconds earlier, spurted from an outlet underneath a car.The problem of poor air quality is the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK, costing the country up to £2.7 billion in lost productivity in 2012.Tim Bird via Getty ImagesThe issue was highlighted by the government last month when it announced petrol and diesel vehicles would be banned from Britain’s roads by 2040.While some way off yet, car manufacturers will see the 2040 deadline as an opportunity.Toyota’s Mirai hydrogen fuel cell car is one example already on UK roads, with the 28 or so currently registered here owned by businesses, local government and taxi companies.

Initial coin offerings (ICO) are hot these days.But despite all the excitement and willingness from the masses to invest their money into cryptocurrency, it appears it remains as risky a venture as ever – and Filecoin has given us even more reasons to doubt the trend.The blockchain-powered data storage service has resorted to temporarily suspending its ICO after the overwhelming inflow of cash caused its systems to partially break down, Finance Magnates reports.— Filecoin (@MineFilecoin) August 10, 2017The startup, which offers users a chance to exchange its own cryptocurrency for other currencies like US dollars, Bitcoin and Ether, raised $186 million in under one hour and proceeded to report having received investments totalling at over $250 million.We have $252MM in investments in flight as of now.

Pretending to be someone else and conversing with politicians via email seems to be the next big thing in online trolling.The troll, who claims to also be responsible for the fake emails to the Trumps and WhiteHouse staff, was pretending to be Robbie Gibb, Theresa May's new head of communications.He managed to initiate a conversation with Rudd on her personal email account, using the opportunity to ask her about future government announcements.Apparently Rudd was quick to realise that she wasn't speaking to Gibb and replied that "getting tough on people impersonating others" was high on the government's agenda.Though this was not before revealing she and special adviser Mohammed Hussein were working on a number of special announcements due later this month, and the fact she is due to go on holiday soon.The prankster, who goes by the name Sinon Reborn, spoke with The Guardian about the emails, claiming to have used the free email service GMX and publicly available parliamentary information to initiate the conversation.

ASOS is the latest online company to embrace computer vision as it begins rolling out a new visual search tool to help fashionistas find garments and accessories using nothing but their smartphone camera.For the uninitiated, ASOS is a U.K.-based ecommerce giant that sells everything from shoes, shirts, and bags to jewellery, accessories, and everything in between.Hitherto, users could search manually by category or using keywords, but with the latest update to land on iOS it’s now possible to take a photo of an item of clothing in the real world — or capture a screenshot from the web or upload an existing snap from your camera roll — and search for similar items on ASOS.ASOS noted that 80 percent of its U.K. traffic comes from mobile devices, with shoppers spending on average 80 minutes per month in the mobile app.This is why the company is seeking new ways to help people unearth goods more easily.“We know this (mobile devices) is where our customers are and it’s how they interact with us everyday, so we are always looking for ways that are mobile native to make their experience even better,” said Asos’ digital product director, Andy Berks.

Browsing a new update to Google’s Google Play Protect re-brand I happened upon the “Switch” page for Android.There, the company shows users how to switch from iPhone to Android devices in as few steps as possible.This webpage is not new, nor are the images on it – and yet what we’re seeing here isn’t exactly a Pixel.The Pixel 2 is rumored to come with a slightly taller body and a set of power and volume buttons in the same place as last year’s model.The differences come in the forehead and the chin of the device, as well as the corners on the exterior.What’s going on here, you might ask?

Sammy goes large... very, very largeSamsung has fired out four flashy announcements with higher capcity chips, faster drives, new packaging format and a flash version of Seagate's Kinetic disk concept.Sammy predicts its 1Tb chip will become available in 2018 and it should will enable 2TB of capacity in a single V-NAND package by stacking 16 1Tb dies.We might expect a potential capacity doubling of current Samsung V-NAND SSDs.The Korean chipper thinks that current 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors are ill-suited for use in thin, 1U servers and suggests a new format to be installed in them, which would enable more flash capacity and IOPS.It’s calling this its Next Generation Small Form Factor or NGSFF and is sampling a 16TB NGSFF drive.

Exacerbating the matter, many sufferers struggle to obtain a formal diagnosis, which is vital to receiving further help.One research paper, published in EPJ Data Science by academics Andrew G Reece and Christopher M Danforth, looks at if Instagram usage patterns can be indicative of depression.Separate studies have shown that while healthy individuals identify darker colors with a negative mode, and tend to prefer brighter colors, depressed individuals prefer darker colors.They also found that those who self-identify as depressed tend to view the world as gray, or lacking in color.Color, therefore, played a huge role in the researcher’s analysis, and they paid close attention to the huge, saturation, and brightness, as well as the use of filters.The researchers also used Instagram as a measure of an individual’s social life.

With smartphones in our hands and self-driving cars sitting in our driveways, the human race will spiral into revolt, despair and conflict as artificial intelligence (AI) and robot technology completely destroy the job markets.Antonio García Martinez, a former product manager at social giant Facebook, left his position in 2015 and now lives in a remote part of the US as a self-described recluse.He traded in his computers for a tepee, a compost toilet and some assault rifles.He said: "Every time I meet someone from outside Silicon Valley – a normie – I can think of 10 companies that are working madly to put that person out of a job."There are 300 million guns in this country, one for every man, woman and child, and they're mostly in the hands of those who are getting economically displaced.Martinez is far from the only Silicon Valley figure to warn about how humanity's future could be impacted by the rapid advance of technology.

Tech companies pitch chatbots to businesses as a way to keep customers coming back for more.A new bot built by Microsoft employees in their spare time is designed to do exactly the opposite.The chatbot, tested recently in Seattle, Atlanta, and Washington D.C., lurks behind fake online ads for sex posted by nonprofits working to combat human trafficking, and responds to text messages sent to the number listed.“Buying sex from anyone is illegal and can cause serious long term harm to the victim, as well as further the cycle of human trafficking,” goes one such message.Microsoft employees built the bot in a philanthropic initiative called Project Intercept, in collaboration with nonprofits that hope it can reduce demand for sex workers, and the incentives for criminals to coerce people into the sex trade.So far, the chatbot has exchanged 14,000 messages with nearly 1,000 people who responded to the planted ads.

Disney is being sued for allegedly violating privacy laws by illegally tracking and collecting children's personal information and activity through its mobile games.The lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California on Thursday (3 August) on behalf of Amanda Rushing who claims that her daughter was tracked using the Disney Princess Palace Pets app.The FTC has stringent regulations regarding internet companies collecting data about children under the age of 13.According to the 1999 Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (CORPA), developers that design apps for kids, as well as third-party advertisers, are required to obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personal information for children under age 13."Most consumers, including parents of children consumers, do not know that apps created for children are engineered to surreptitiously and unlawfully collect the child-users' personal information, and then exfiltrate that information off the smart device for advertising and other commercial purposes," the complaint reads."As children's cognitive abilities still are developing, they have limited understanding or awareness of sophisticated advertising and therefore are less likely than adults to distinguish between the actual content of online gaming apps and the advertising content that is targeted to them alongside it," the suit reads.

There's a new low Amazon Echo price today in the US, meaning it's probably the best time to buy it before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.It's $89.99 until midnight tonight through a bunch of non-Amazon websites like Bloomingdales, PC Richard & Son, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Best Buy.What's interesting is that not only is the Amazon.com price more expensive than this at the normal $179, Amazon's refurbished units are still $129.99.Of course, the catch is that these online retailers will only have the Amazon Echo available at the discounted price for less a few hours longer.It appears to be a way to lure you to their website, maybe in a hope that you'll buy something else on Bloomingdales or PC Richard & Son.This is also the ideal time to discount the Amazon Echo price.
