A huge wave has been spotted in the upper atmosphere of Venus, baffling scientists because it's staying so still above the planet's surface.Usually clouds in that region move at about 328 feet per second, whereas this cloud is stationary compared to the planet's rotation.New work suggests that the wave was created in the lower atmosphere when it flowed over a mountain, which would be similar to a phenomenon on Earth called a "gravity wave."The feature, related to atmospheric flow over mountains, has nothing to do with the similarly named "gravitational wave," which refers to space-time ripples in the early universe."Although it is unclear whether gravity waves induced by mountains can readily propagate upwards to the cloud tops of Venus, the observations suggest that the atmospheric dynamics of Venus are more complex at depth than previously appreciated," the journal Nature's statement on the finding said.Japan at Venus: Photos from the Akatsuki Spacecraft

Midyear data release hopes to crowd source academic data-matching brainpowerThe Centrelink robo-debt debacle hasn't dimmed the Australian government's enthusiasm for data-matching as a policy tool.Largely lifted from a controversial program undertaken in New Zealand that willingly trades privacy for service outcomes, the review suggested applying big data to welfare recipients to identify and pursue individuals at risk of long-term unemployment or other forms of welfare dependency.Part of that, as the department explains here, is the data release: access will be provided to de-identified, DSS longitudinal welfare data which are one of the data sets used to underpin the Priority Investment Approach.As well as data matching, the program touches another potential flashpoint: anonymity.We were told by a departmental spokesperson that the limited longitudinal data will be released to eligible stakeholders within six months.

Har du någon gång fått frågan om att hoppa på ett tillfälligt jobb eller konsultuppdrag, men tvekat för att du har en trygg anställning?Enligt en stor undersökning från mjukvaruföretaget Intuit kommer 40 procent av arbetskraften i USA att vara gig:are år 2020, det vill säga arbeta uppdragsbaserat antingen som konsulter, frilansare eller som projektanställda.Vi i Sverige brukar ju vara snabba på att haka på eller rentav driva på trender så det skulle inte förvåna mig om vi överträffade den förutsägelsen.Det visade sig att uppdragsformen passade mig på flera sätt.Det har verkligen passat mig och min personlighet att ständigt befinna mig i förändring och stötta andra till att bli ännu bättre.Enligt en rapport från McKinsey ligger andelen gig:are i dagsläget på 20–30 procent i Europa och USA och gruppen växer snabbt.

Last weekend I saw an advertisement for an Asus X540SA at a ridiculously low price CHF 299 / €280 / £245 / $300 , which is always one of my criteria.This Asus specifications page for the X540S lists a variety of CPUs, memory and disk configurations, so this is obviously just the latest in a long line.The detailed specs for the one I got are:500GB HDD / 5400 RPM / SATA802.11 b/g/n WiFi & RJ-45 Wired networkThose look like some very good specifications for such a low priced laptop.

While Verizon Wireless is forcing customers to give up unlimited data plans if they use , AT has used several other tactics to limit the usefulness of the grandfathered plans.In 2011, AT began from customers who jailbreak iPhones to use unauthorized tethering services.AT also used to for the remainder of the month when they used more than 3GB or 5GB, depending on what device they had.AT has made the throttling less punitive, now applying it after customers use , and even then only when customers connect to a congested cell tower.Government agency attempts to punish AT for unlimited data throttling have come up .

A powerful 60-mile range makes WatchAir a great solution for cord-cutters, but it can also be used with existing external antennas as well.A 2014 Supreme Court ruling forced the pioneering cloud service out of business after broadcasters complained the technology infringed on their copyright, sending cord-cutters in search of other options.I live an hour south of Cleveland s major networks, far enough away that indoor antennas and portable solutions like TabletTV rarely pull in more than a few second-tier stations.Available in black or white, WatchAir is a thin 0.57 inches , stylish-looking HDTV indoor antenna 18.1 inches across and 3.7 inches high that attaches to a vertical base measuring 2.7 inches wide and 7.6 inches tall.WatchAir promises 60-mile, triple-band coverage high-band VHF, low-band VHF, UHF , requiring only AC power and an available wireless network to stream live programming to a variety of devices.Setup was a snap, thanks to the universal iOS app s GPS-based live installation guide, which shows you exactly where to mount the antenna for best results.

TCL thinks it can bring BlackBerry back from the dead.The Chinese manufacturer, best known in the US for its affordable TVs and Alcatel-branded smartphones, on Wednesday unveiled the first BlackBerry phone it ll release since formally acquiring the rights to the once-leading mobile brand in December.It s a bit of an odd announcement: TCL isn t disclosing the actual name of the phone yet, nor is it confirming its specs, price point, or release date.The company says those details will come closer to the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona next month.Instead, it s giving media at CES 2017 in Las Vegas a peek at an alpha version of the phone, albeit one with finished hardware, to get in front of the handful of leaks that have popped up in recent months.Those leaks pointed to a phone, codenamed Mercury, with the kind of QWERTY keyboard that BlackBerry was known for before its well-documented fall from grace, and it turns out they were correct.The keyboard spreads out across the width of the phone, but, as with the competent but ill-fated Priv before it, the keyboard feels jarring in a world where touchscreens have long become the norm.At first blush, it s good for what it is: The keys are clicky and responsive, the necessary characters are there though having no dedicated period key is a pain , there s a fingerprint reader built into the space bar, and there s still some level of touch support, so you can, say, swipe across the keyboard to move your cursor onscreen.The question is whether or not a good phone keyboard is something worth pursuing in the first place.The fact that BlackBerry s global market share fell from 20% to 0.1% while all-touch phones grew dominant over the past decade, leading the company to get out of hardware entirely, would suggest not.But TCL s North American boss Steve Cistulli says there s still strong enough demand for the more tactile feel of a physical keyboard, particularly among enterprise customers.Though earlier rumors suggested that BlackBerry had this new phone in the works months before TCL took over its hardware, Cistulli says the company thinks of QWERTY phones as one part of its BlackBerry suite of devices, and that it ll keep the keyboard around as long as the market demands it.It s a handsome phone, all black and silver, with smoothly rounded sides and a grippy, rubberized texture on its back.

Someone has probably asked you what your plan is for your life.As advice site Barking Up the Wrong Tree explains, having opportunities available to you is a fantastic way to ensure that you always have a new avenue to pursue.Maybe your plan was to go to college for a few years and get a steady job in your chosen field.Once you get there, though, you discover you hate it.Spend some of your free time developing hobbies or skills.Maybe you won t make a career out of your hobby immediately, but you ll develop the framework necessary to pursue the opportunity later on.
