This weeks Doctor Who took us to one disconcerting future: a world where emoji-speaking robots exist, perhaps proving that Sony’s Emoji Movie might be more popular and influential on A.I.design than we wanted it to be.But put that chilling thought aside for a moment, and come share your thoughts on tonight’s episode!Another day, another misunderstood race of Doctor Who robots who go about murdering humans because someone didn’t think for more than a few minutes while programming them.I mock, but there’s been an awful lot of “misunderstood monsters” on the show lately that the emojibots almost feel like they would’ve been a bit more fun if they were just killer robots for the sake of it.Otherwise, “Smile” represented a solid, if not particularly stand out sophomore episode for writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce, and a definite step up from his bafflingly messy season 8 episode “In the Forest of the Night”, even if it played on the aforementioned familiar tropes of robots misunderstanding the depth and vagaries of human emotion to deadly effect.

It’s serious in an old-fashioned sense: sincere, thoughtful, and heartbreaking.It begins on a sprawling tomato farm, staffed by migrant workers who sleep in firetraps, neglected by the family that owns the business.Kimara is black, unhappily single, a debt-ridden do-gooder who longs for a child; Clair is white, miserably married, a late-in-life mom who opted out.But, even as Clair writes a generous check, she’s in denial about her exploitation of her own nanny, an immigrant whose passport is locked up in Clair’s safe.Along with Kimara and Clair, the characters include Shae (Ana Mulvoy-Ten), a pregnant teen prostitute; Coy (Connor Jessup), a white junkie enlisted to work on the largely Latino farm; Luis (Benito Martinez), a Mexican father searching for his lost son; Jeanette, a newly radicalized wealthy woman (Felicity Huffman, exceptional in every season of the show), who is the wife of one of the farm owners and the sister of a recovering addict; and the remarkable Mickaëlle X. Bizet, as the French-speaking Haitian nanny, Gabrielle, who enters halfway through the season, then steals every episode she’s in.Instead, it tucks their unhappy endings in where they belong, at the middle of another story, as part of a bigger picture.

A group of researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, US, along with General Electric and the U. S. Department of Energy developed a new kind of dryer which can come to halve our tvättider in the future.the Secret lies in the dryer instead of heating uses high-frequency vibration which shakes the water out of the clothes and turns them into cold water vapour.the Method is claimed to also leave less lint in the machine then this is something that is usually created by the hot air in a dryer.the Risk of to clothing colors to fade is also reduced.the Dryer, which called for Ultrasonic dryer, should be twice as fast as a regular dryer, and in addition, five times as energy efficient.so far are, however, only a single working prototype of the ultraljudstumlaren, why we get to wait a few years before it starts showing up in the store.

Following last week’s decision to end the Obama-era practice of releasing White House visitor logs to the public, the Trump administration is now saying that the petition site “We the People” could be the next thing to go.U.S. News spoke with White House Communications Director Mike Dubke who said that the maintenance costs of the website are currently being evaluated and “this decision is still under review.” Maintenance costs were also one of the reasons the administration gave for ending the release of visitor logs.(One trip to the president’s Mar-a-Lago golf resort is estimated to cost the taxpayers of Palm Beach $60,000.)We the People was launched in September of 2011 as an initiative to give Americans a way to voice their concerns to their elected officials.The Obama administration committed to giving an official response within 30 days to any petition that reached more than 100,000 signatures.But according to the watchdog site whpetitions.info, as of October 16th, 2016, 321 out of 323 petitions that had met the signature goal had received a response.

A tense weekend of brinksmanship between the United States and North Korea culminated in a failed missile test from the reclusive dictatorship.North Korean officials have long hinted at the country’s aspirations for long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles that can carry miniaturized nuclear warheads.At a holiday military parade on Saturday the country showed off what appear to be a new type of long-range missile, a new reentry apparatus on a known missile, canisters big enough to hold extremely large missiles (that may have been empty), and extensive displays of solid fuel technology.Prior to the weekend, analysts looking at satellite photos of a North Korean nuclear test site had reported that the facility seemed to be gearing up for a test.The missile, which seems to have been a medium-range KN-17 model, and had what the State Department described as “prohibited technology,” exploded four to five seconds after launch.It is very strongly isolated from the rest of the world, there are very few opportunities for attack,” said John Schilling, a satellite and launch vehicle propulsion systems specialist at the Aerospace Corporation, during a press briefing on Tuesday.

Weep not for the mini NES Classic Edition you never got to hold, weep for the mini SNES Classic Edition yet to suffer from massive manufacturing shortages.Just a few days after the surprise announcement that Nintendo is discontinuing the wildly popular mini NES Classic Edition comes a fresh report about the follow-up from Eurogamer, which has given us accurate information about Nintendo in the past.Sources close to the company, Eurogamer reports, say that Nintendo will be launching a SNES Classic Edition for the holidays this year.This dovetails with Nintendo's own statements that the mini NES Classic Edition was discontinued because it was never meant to be a permanent product.It's a slightly perplexing notion on its own, but it makes marginally more sense if the company is planning a gradual rollout of classic consoles, perhaps even followed by a mini N64 Classic Edition the following year.Nintendo's library of classic games is one of its greatest strengths, and the NES Classic Edition showed what ravenous appetite there is for machines capable of conjuring back memories of childhood for legions of older gamers.

The 100-400mm lens is the longest yet for Sony's Master G series, offering a big reach for sports and wildlife photographers.Announced alongside its newest flagship full frame mirrorless on Wednesday, Sony expanded its G Master Lens series with the new 100-400mm super telephoto E-mount zoom lens, the furthest reaching lens in the series yet.Designed for Sony’s high-end lens series, the Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS is built with a fast autofocus motor as a lens that is ideal for sports and wildlife shooters, the company says.That is because the lens uses both a double linear motor and a Direct Drive SSM actuator, which works with the motor for quieter operation.The newly optimized autofocus algorithm is designed for precision work, allowing Sony’s a9 body to reach maximum performance.Building a lens to reach from 100 to 400mm was not an easy task — the design involves 22 lens elements arranged in 16 different groups.

Google is planning to add a built-in ad-blocker to Chrome, according to sources, and it will target the Internet’s most obnoxious types of advertisements.These sub-standard advertisements include things like videos that automatically start playing and advertisements that won’t disappear until a long countdown timer is finished.The sources indicate that Google hasn’t ironed out all of the details yet, and that it may not ultimately go through with the feature.The information comes from sources speaking with The Wall Street Journal, which says that Google would make the feature opt-in rather than activated by default.The details aren’t finalized yet, according to the sources, who say there’s still a chance Google will choose not to release the feature.If it does, though, the ad-blocker will look at the types of advertisements a website is delivering and judge whether they meet an acceptable standard.

this week I build an eq from DIY Recording Equipment.Eq:n is called EQP5 and is a passive frekvensfilter based on a simpler variant of the classic Pultec.The finished eq:n is a module for the 500-lunchbox from the beginning, was launched by the API.When you order a kit you get home everything needed to build, the only thing you need to have for yourself is a soldering iron, solder and a phillips screwdriver and of course a 500-lunchbox or rack of any manufacturer.A big advantage with this build, especially for beginners, is just that it is for the 500 series so you do not need to work with a strong electricity.All components are divided into numbered bags in the order it is recommended to build the eq is, and there are detailed instructions to find on the manufacturer's website.
