The ride-hailing service has become the darling of most Londoners, but in a city filled with Black Cabs and minicab firms there are plenty of alternatives out there.On Uber, this would cost between £14 and £19 according to the app's online fare calculator - although under surge pricing this could easily go beyond £25 or more.TfL's reasons for not renewing Uber's license include its approaches to reporting serious criminal offences, obtaining medical certificates and its use of the Greyball software, which helps it evade authorities.What are the best alternatives to Uber?MyTaxi, Gett, Addison Lee, Minicabit and Kabbee all allow passengers to hail taxis or minicabs from an appGett started out as a similar service to Uber in Israel, but has since become a major Black Cab app in London, offering users a fixed fare charge for their journey.

Google has launched a trade in program via its online store ahead of the anticipated launch of the Google Pixel 2.The program allows customers to hand over an existing smartphone to save up to $388 on a Google Pixel or Pixel XL (though the Pixel 2 will likely be added once it’s available) from a list of eligible devices.This is how it works: when you click the “Buy” button on the Google Pixel page at the Google Store, you will be taken to the configuration options (color, storage size etc) where you can click the “trade in your phone” button to visit the Trade In page.From here, you can select from one of the six manufacturers whose phones are currently available for trade in, and then proceed to select the individual device you wish to trade.Finally, fill out the short phone details and condition form to see how much money your device is worth — the figure will depend on a number of factors like whether it’s unlocked, turns on, and is free of any cracks.The manufacturers currently supported in the program are: Apple, Google, LG, Samsung, Motorola and Huawei, and of these, only a few smartphones are available for trade in.

Here, advises career coach Emma Pihl on how to best communicate who you are and what you can.Many people experience the situation as a läxförhör – but at the job interview, you should not be a passive player.– It is not at all certain that the person you meet is good at interviewing people.therefore, the up posts: What I have said and get forward of myself?What a feeling I want to convey – and what experiences I want to share?this should have been thought through before the interview, " says career coach Emma Pihl.

Airbnb, much like Uber before it, is expanding its business by getting into the restaurant industry.In this case, the company has started accepting restaurant reservations on behalf of customers who plan to eat out while traveling.The service currently supports nearly 650 restaurants throughout the US; Airbnb says this is a curated selection and that the reservation process takes place directly within the Airbnb app.The new feature is tailored toward travelers who are away from home and looking for somewhere to eat.You, like many other travelers, have likely booked restaurant reservations while on vacation or traveling for business, and that can be time-consuming if you’re in an unfamiliar city.Airbnb has taken on the work of finding and curating restaurants in a variety of cities, making it easier for travelers to find somewhere and reserve a table.

In a letter to the FEC chairman, four members of the house and 16 senators—including Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris—urge the FEC to work with tech companies on new ways to monitor who's paying for campaign ads on their platforms.The letter follows the news earlier this month that Facebook found $150,000 worth of misleading political ads linked to Russian accounts that ran during the 2016 election.Now, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, including Republican Senator Richard Burr and Democratic Senator Mark Warner, say they expect Facebook to testify before a public hearing about the ads.Those hearings may eventually help illuminate what happened in 2016, but it's the 2018 midterm race that primarily concerns the letter’s signatories."Foreign nationals were shown to have routinely deployed sophisticated tactics in making political expenditures to evade detection, with the express purpose of undermining the integrity of our elections,” the letter reads.“There is no reason to believe this behavior will stop in future elections.”

Apple’s new Control Center in iOS 11 is a lot more fully featured, with a customizable layout and a number of new added controls accessible with Force Touch.One aspect of it that may have, at least at first, appeared like a big plus is now proving to be a bit of a security and usability problem: the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi controls.In iOS 11, Apple lets you disconnect devices or disconnect from networks by toggling off those two buttons from within the Control Center.Those buttons do not, however, deactivate those features entirely, Motherboard reports.Instead, Apple leaves both running in the background to keep certain things intact, like the file-transferring feature AirDrop, geolocation services, and communication with a paired Apple Watch.This is a change from how these buttons have worked in the past.

It looks like a space alien, or maybe a very deformed clam.But really, it's a re-creation of a 500-million-year-old life-form.New images show a sculpture of Agnostus pisiformis, a now-extinct arthropod that used to live in what is today Scandinavia.These creatures, just four-tenths of an inch (1 centimeter) long when they were alive, are nevertheless known in exact anatomical detail because they've been preserved so perfectly in shale and limestones."The incredible degree of preservational detail means that we can grasp the entire anatomy of the animal, which, in turn, reveals a lot about its ecology and mode of life," Mats E. Eriksson, a geology professor at Lund University who commissioned the sculpted re-creation as part of a new paper in the journal Earth-Science Reviews, said in a statement.According to that paper, A. pisiformis started life as a larva and developed into adulthood by repeatedly shedding and regrowing its hard exoskeleton.

Stob These days we hear a lot about luring the young away from happy, fulfilling careers and into the world of programming.The kids have been freed from the tedious yoke of the boring and 'Microsoft-heavy' ITC syllabuses courtesy of popular hero Michael Gove.Now every child receives more Raspberry Pi than rice pudding; double Python periods substitute for double French; and instead of class discussions about Regan, Goneril and Cordelia, they chat for hours with Siri, Alexa and Cortana.However, with all this brouhaha, it has been forgotten that more mature programmers need loving too.As it happens, I have an older friend who is a great fan and notable expert: he won't consider any other trouser.>>> Yeah and the mum was in that old film with that man who could dance

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, is the most popular YouTuber in the world.He's gotten himself into another controversy, this time for shouting the n-word while livestreaming a video game.The 27-year-old Swede has repeatedly been criticized for hate speech, and just last month said he would no longer make Nazi jokes after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent.But while playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Sunday, Kjellberg, who has over 57 million subscribers on YouTube, called another player the n-word before erupting into laughter."What a fucking n****r," he said.Sorry, but what the fuck?

Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in "smart pills" to diagnose and treat diseases.A paper describing the new device appears in the September issue of the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.The lead author is Manuel Monge (MS '10, PhD '17), who was a doctoral student in Emami's lab and a Rosen Bioengineering Center Scholar at Caltech, and now works at a company called Neuralink.Audrey Lee-Gosselin, a research technician in Shapiro's lab, is also an author.Called ATOMS, which is short for addressable transmitters operated as magnetic spins, the new silicon-chip devices borrow from the principles of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in which the location of atoms in a patient's body is determined using magnetic fields."A key principle of MRI is that a magnetic field gradient causes atoms at two different locations to resonate at two different frequencies, making it easy to tell where they are," says Shapiro.

Yrittäjien etujärjestö Suomen Yrittäjät on laatinut teesit, joita se ajaa korkeakoulu-uudistuksessa.Yrittäjät arvostelevat nykyistä hajanaista korkeakoulukenttää ja peräänkuuluttavat tehokkuutta, yhtenäisyyttä ja osaamista.Listalla ovat myös lukukausimaksut sekä kansainvälinen opinto- tai harjoittelujakso kaikille.Yrittäjien mukaan julkisesti rahoitetuilla yliopistoilla tulisi olla lukukausimaksu, joka on sama kaikille Euroopan talousalueelta tuleville opiskelijoille.Opintotuki- ja stipendijärjestelmillä pidettäisiin huolta, että kaikilla Suomessa asuvilla on mahdollisuus korkeakouluopintoihin."Yliopistouudistuksen keskeisimmät tavoitteet kytkeytyvät yliopistojen toimintakyvyn ja reagointiherkkyyden parantamiseen, rahoituspohjan monipuolistamiseen, kansainvälisen tutkimusrahoituksen ja yhteistyömahdollisuuksien entistä parempaan hyödyntämiseen sekä resurssien kohdentamiseen yliopistojen strategisiin painoaloihin", Yrittäjämyönteinen korkeakoulutus 2025 -nimisessä muistiossa sanotaan.

WASHINGTON—The Trump administration plans to introduce new voluntary guidelines for autonomous vehicles on Tuesday in a bid to increase flexibility for car and tech companies and speed the industry’s development in the U.S.Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is scheduled to announce the new guidance—entitled “A Vision for Safety”—at an event in Ann Arbor, Mich., where companies test automated vehicles and technologies in simulated driving environments at the University of Michigan.The rules will discourage states from trying to make parts of the federal guidelines mandatory, such as a voluntary safety-assessment process, said a person familiar with the matter.That has been a big concern for auto and tech companies in their feedback to the government on guidelines that were introduced by the Obama administration in 2016.Many officials believe an over-restrictive approach to regulation could dim the industry’s chances of success, in part because the federal safety rule-making process can be cumbersome.As a result, federal regulators have moved slowly to develop formal rules for driverless cars.

Animation, motion design and video production studio Breakfast of Champions has revealed its involvement in the BBC’s latest cooking show ‘The Big Family Cooking Showdown’, where 16 families go head-to-head to secure the title of Britain’s best family of home cooks.Theresa Hilsden, head of design, at the London-based studio was tasked with creating a look and feel for the title sequence and menu graphics shown throughout the show.She explored a number of styles for the project, including a folksy, highly patterned approach and a more illustrative and brightly coloured theme before settling on a more graphic, font-driven design for the series logo.Hilsden said: “This clean, pared-down design with symmetrical lines was both modern and simple and lent itself perfectly to three main accent colours.For the menu cards, we played around with sketches of ingredients and settled on a design that used colour blocking, typography and graphic illustration to create something simple and stylish, again with three beautiful accent colours.“I loved working on this!
