It seems like we’re hearing of a new data breach each month, giving companies transitioning to the cloud plenty reason to feel vulnerable.Using two-factor authentication and, where unique, cycled temporary passwords are sent to a device tend to be much safer for remote usage and security protocol.We recommend all of our clients who are storing sensitive information in the cloud to get a cybersecurity insurance policy to help protect them if there is a malicious attack on their company’s data.As a web-based healthcare company with access to PHI protected by federal law, security is paramount to customer confidence in our solutions.– Amanda Elms, Metis Genetics, LLCCloud storage services that offer local data encryption provides two levels of security.

The Redmi 6 Pro is arriving on 25th of June but I doubt that there’s anything left to hide of it except for the price.There are a few details like the processor that still remain under wraps but new information has been seeping out of the pipeline every day.And one of the review units was declared to possess a Snapdragon 625 chipset.That aside, new RAM and variant information has come out today.Although TENAA data had tipped a 2GB + 16GB model to debut as well, that now doesn’t look likely to happen.As per an Indian tipster, the Redmi 6 Pro will get three variants:

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most innovative gaming consoles to launch of late but, like any gaming device, it isn’t immune to one of the entertainment industry’s biggest problem: piracy.Many companies have tried different methods of fighting or discouraging piracy, often at the expense of inconveniencing legit users.Nintendo, however, may have come up with a nearly foolproof method that would ban such pirates from playing games online or even ban them from Nintendo Network for good.While Nintendo will probably never confirm the exact details of its anti-piracy system, Redditor SciresM paints a rather detailed overview of what is involved.In a nutshell, Nintendo performs a series of checks whenever a Switch user tries to play a game online.One of the things it checks for is a game’s unique certificate, a secret, encrypted, and very unique piece of data that will tell Nintendo’s servers if a game is a pirated copy or not.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- A new synthetic enzyme, crafted from DNA rather than protein, flips lipid molecules within the cell membrane, triggering a signal pathway that could be harnessed to induce cell death in cancer cells.They published their findings in the journal Nature Communications."Cell membranes are lined with a different set of molecules on the inside and outside, and cells devote a lot of resources to maintaining this," said study leader Aleksei Aksimentiev, a professor of physics at Illinois.Our synthetic scramblase could be an avenue for therapeutics."Aksimentiev's group came upon DNA's scramblase activity when looking at DNA structures that form pores and channels in cell membranes.They used the Blue Waters supercomputer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at Illinois to model the systems at the atomic level.

Microsoft and Nintendo are certainly looking cozy together these days.The latter just released a trailer promoting the new crossplay available between the Xbox One and Switch — and it’s most notable for who’s not in it rather than who is.Maybe just a touch of shade, thrown by red and green over the one color that isn’t there: blue.Okay, so the trailer doesn’t mention Sony directly, but it’s not hard to see the meaning behind the “Better Together” tagline.Sony also reportedly refused to allow crossplay with Rocket League — an executive with developer Psyonix told Polygon there were no technical problems preventing it from happening, only a “political barrier.”More recently, Sony has taken a scorching level of heat for blocking Fortnite crossplay between PS4 and Switch, forcing players who wanted to use both to start over in a game where progression is key.

Koko, the gorilla who mastered sign language and counted the actor Robin Williams and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea among her friends, has died at age 46.The Gorilla Foundation said the western lowland gorilla died in her sleep at the foundation's preserve in California's Santa Cruz Mountains on Tuesday.Koko was born at the San Francisco Zoo, and Dr. Francine 'Penny' Patterson began teaching the gorilla sign language that became part of a Stanford University project in 1974.She was said to be able to communicate with humans with 1,000 words of sign language and was able to understand 2,000 words of spoken English.The foundation said Koko's capacity for language and empathy opened the minds and hearts of millions."The foundation will continue to honor Koko's legacy and advance our mission with ongoing projects including conservation efforts in Africa, the great ape sanctuary on Maui, and a sign language application featuring Koko for the benefit of both gorillas and children."

Disgruntled former employee alleged to have hacked IT system and transferred sensitive data to third partyElectric car maker Telsa is suing a former worker, after it alleged he hacked into their IT systems and passed sensitive data to “third parties.”It comes after company chief executive Elon Musk earlier this week sent out an email in which he accused an employee of carrying out “extensive and damaging sabotage” against the firm.Telsa is currently a company dealing with a number of issues at the moment, including a record quarterly loss of almost $710m in the first three months of the year.Indeed, Telsa has reportedly not made an annual profit since it was formed nearly 15 years ago.The ongoing losses had prompted Musk to last week announce that 9 percent of Tesla’s workforce would be made redundant.

Several stories last month reported that facial recognition technology used by UK police was “staggeringly inaccurate”.Yet in the last six months, multinational financial services firms, such as ING and Rabobank, have started using automatic face matching to replace in-person identity checking.They solve different issues, and don’t experience the same problems.Trying to spot a suspect in a crowd is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.The purpose of facial recognition here is to help officers thin down this haystack.There is, however, a question of personal privacy to be addressed.

Xiaomi announced the Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A a couple of days back in China, without a word on the status of the Pro version.Now, the company will be heading to India on June 25 when it is expected to introduce the aforementioned devices to the Indian Market, while also announcing the Redmi 6 Pro, and the Mi Pad 4.While we already know quite some useful features and even a glimpse of the device already via TENAA, a couple of alleged live images of the smartphone have just surfaced corroborating the design aspect of it.As you can see in the images below, the Redmi 6 pro is tipped to come with the trendy irregular, and if that pans out, it will end up the first Redmi series to feature the notch, with a mass of bezels below the display, while the two sides and the top barely have any noticeable bezels.Flipping to the back, the design is still inspired by the Apple iPhone X featuring a vertically-aligned dual-camera setup with a LED flash sitting by the sides.Ahead of the launch 25th June, the smartphone has passed TENAA where a handful of the internals was revealed.

NEW YORK...June 21, 2018 - Putting yourself in someone else's shoes and relying on intuition or "gut instinct" isn't an accurate way to determine what they're thinking or feeling," say researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), the University of Chicago and Northeastern University."We incorrectly presume that taking someone else's perspective will help us understand and improve interpersonal relationships," they say in a new study published in the American Psychological Association's Journal of Personality and Social Psychology."If you want an accurate understanding of what someone is thinking or feeling, don't make assumptions, just ask."The researchers debunk the theories canonized in Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People that assuming you understand someone else's thoughts, feelings, attitude, or mental state is a correct approach to interpersonal insight.The study included an exhaustive series of 25 experiments designed to separate accuracy from egotism.The researchers asked participants to adopt another person's perspective and predict their emotions based on facial expressions and body postures, identify fake versus genuine smiles, spot when someone is lying or telling the truth, and even predict a spouse's activity preferences and consumer attitudes.

The answer is likely yes -- especially if you're a young adult or a woman."iPad neck" -- persistent pain in the neck and upper shoulders caused by slouching or bending into extreme positions while using tablet computers -- is a growing problem among Americans, according to a new UNLV study.Findings, released last week in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science, show:"iPad neck," sometimes called "tablet neck," is usually associated with sitting without back support, such as on a bench or on the ground, or slumping over the tablet while it rests in the user's lap.Other postures significantly associated with pain included using tablets while lying on the side or back.UNLV physical therapy professor Szu-Ping Lee, lead author of the study, said the results concern him, especially given the growing popularity of tablet computers, e-book readers, and other connected devices for personal, school, and business purposes.
