An archivist working at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library has stumbled upon colour home video taken in the late 1920s by former First Lady Lou Hoover.Incredibly, this is very likely the first colour film to show a US President, the First Lady, and the White House.Audio-visual archivist Lynn Smith was working on a preservation project at the library when she realised that seven reels of 16mm film from the Hoover collection were not black and white as originally assumed, but an early form of colour film known as Kodacolor.“I realised some of [Lou Hoover’s] home movies used Kodacolor film but, because it appears like black and white film, previous archivists assumed it must be black and white,” explained Smith in a Hoover Archives release.Knowing that the former First Lady was fascinated by emerging technologies, and that she had access to Kodacolor film and camera, Smith decided to take a closer look at the film, wherein she came to the discovery.Kodacolor film debuted in August 1928, and it looks like plain old black and white film.

Full disclosure: I'm in no way affiliated to the org.I noticed that charity:water has been posting 8-10 second clips of the people they are helping in Africa with those people awkwardly staring direct to the camera.I'm wondering if anyone has insights on the performance of such video posts that evokes so much emotion and vulnerability because it's really like you're staring at the eyes of the people struggling in Africa.

A data scientist is a professional who works to extract insights and make sense of large sets of data, or ‘big data’.The data scientists are those making plots on a laptop in R, but also building big ML pipelines on Apache Hadoop, even if those are quite different things.As the field matures we may fall back to more specific terms like data analyst, data engineer and statistician rather than bundle all of them in “data scientist”.EB: What is the difference between a data analyst/statistician and a data scientist?SO: Supposedly, the data scientist also possesses software engineering skills.These are the original “data scientists” yet find themselves at some disadvantage where there isn’t enough distinction between the role of modelers working in a lab and the role of engineers maintaining the production systems these models affect.

With just about two months to go until Google I/O, the Android 8.0 rumor mill is just about ready to start churning at full speed.And right on cue, 9to5Google has the first report, with just enough juicy tidbits to whet our appetite for more.Each version of Android seems to bring changes to notifications—most recently, Nougat delivered direct replies and bundling—and it looks like Android O will continue to tweak the system.But 9to5Google’s tipsters didn’t supply any specifics as to what will be new or different, though it infers from a separate Andromeda rumor that will involve syncing across devices, which would certainly be a welcome change.The site has also been told that Google will be adding app icon badges for active notifications.There are already a few launchers and manufacturer-specific skins that offer badges, but for some reason Google has resisted them in the pure version of Android.

sickness absence in people-oriented jobs continues to increase.Now, scientists will find out how the workplace can slow down development, and if there are differences between men and women working in these professions.Anna Nyberg, a researcher and psychologist at the stress research institute at Stockholm university, has received funding from Afa Insurance to look at whether differences in work environment and tasks may explain why the women in kontaktyrken more often on sick leave for mental illness.Although the importance of various factors in privacy will be identified.– There are not so much studies which looked specifically at kontaktyrken, as a teacher and social worker, and what men and women do.In working life research, we have perhaps not been so great to have the gender perspective, " says Anna Nyberg.

Shia LeBeouf may claim that we cannot be divided, but maybe we’ve always fought and separated from one another.And at the same time, maybe that is part of a larger, harmonious system that we cannot see from our point of view … or, at least, that’s what I think I got from the trailer for the upcoming game Everything.On March 21, developer David O’Reilly will release Everything for PlayStation 4 for $15 before the game hits PC and Mac on April 21.Everything is the result of three years of development, and it empowers players to explore existence at various scales by warping into various creatures, plants, and more.To give players an idea of what to expect, O’Reilly released a gameplay trailer today that starts with a bear somersaulting absurdly through a wilderness environment, but it quickly turns profound as philosopher Alan Watts puts words to what is happening on screen in a voice-over track.From the bear, we see a cursor move around and select a bird and then the camera shifts to the fowl’s smaller point of view.Next, the cursor selects grass, then a clover, and on down to microorganisms.Later in the video, the game scales up until you are playing as an entire galaxy.“When we examine our bloodstreams under a microscope, we see there’s one hell of a fight going on,” Watts says in audio from his How Could This Happen To Me?

I got the idea after the college discontinued its soccer program and I noticed months later that a small design made by one of the players out of cups was still lodged in one of the fence panels.I pitched the idea at work and eventually we made it happen.Here's a picture of the final product:Here's a time-lapse of the installation process:It took maybe an hour for us to put it up and lasted two or three months.The lawn guys had to pick up the occasional cup off the lawn but it held up surprisingly well.

Logitech’s ZeroTouch smartphone holder has been on the market for almost a year, but I’ve ignored it because my beat doesn’t include mobile devices.That changed about a month ago when Logitech integrated Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service into its ZeroTouch app.Now I can use voice commands to control my smart home while I’m in the car and my smartphone is connected to the ZeroTouch.The dashboard version has all the same features, but I’m not as enamored with it because it must be glued to your dashboard and it costs $80.It’s not a bug, as the saying goes, it’s a feature: If you want the ZeroTouch’s (and Alexa’s) voice responses played through your car’s speakers, you’ll need to set your head unit to operate in media mode.I found myself constantly reaching for the head unit’s volume control either because the ZeroTouch was alerting me to an incoming message or because I wanted to use the ZeroTouch.

Zenimax looks real fucking shady.First they sue to stop distribution of the Rift because Oculus was found to have stolen their IP--which isn't what the court found at all--and now they're not paying someone they sued because they lost a suit against him and they're saying he's faithless?

The US Military has a new firearm in its itinerary: Meet RAMBO, the 3D printed grenade launcher that could revolutionise the way soldiers are equipped for battle.RAMBO, or the Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistics Ordnance to give it its proper name, is based on the US Army's M203 underslung grenade launcher for firearms including the M16 and M4A1 carbine.But RAMBO is unique in that all of its parts save for the springs and fasteners have been produced by 3D printing – and that includes the grenades themselves.The breech-loaded grenade launcher consists of 50 individual parts, the majority of which were developed through the additive manufacturing process.Additive manufacturing is a form of 3D printing whereby layers of material, commonly photopolymer resin, are printed on top of each other to create a 3D object.Of course for RAMBO, some of the components needed to be made from tougher stuff, so the barrel and receiver were printed from aluminium and the trigger and firing pin from ultra-tough 4340 alloy steel.

Google announced that an entirely overhauled version of App Engine was generally available as of today.It made the announcement at Google Cloud Next being held this week in San Francisco.App Engine is Google’s platform-as-a-service for building application backends without having to worry about maintaining a complex infrastructure.The big news is that App Engine now supports any programming language, so a developer can create the app in whatever language they are comfortable using.Google sees this as a game changer, making the platform more open, which is a big theme with the company as it transitions to try and lure enterprise customers to Google Cloud Platform in general.Sam Ramji, VP of product management at Google points out that App Engine was initially an entirely closed environment.
