När Wolfenstein: The New Order släpptes 2014 hände något i spelvärldens kollektiva medvetande.Plötsligt insåg alla att förstapersonsskjutare kunde vara roliga.Det spontana intrycket efter vårt test är nej.Men det är egentligen inte heller något som en uppföljare behöver göra.Och det gör faktiskt vi också.Den första banan visar på det som gissningsvis är början på hela spelet med en William “BJ” Blazkowicz som vaknar upp i en sjuksäng ombord på ett gigantiskt fiendeskepp.

If you're unlucky enough to get caught in a natural or man-made disaster, Google's SOS Alerts can help get you the information you need.Whether it’s in the aftermath of a natural disaster or a terrorist attack, most of us want actionable, up-to-the-minute information about the situation on the ground.That’s the idea behind SOS Alerts, a new feature in Google Maps and Google Search that prominently highlights top stories, websites, and other useful information.In Google’s Search app for iOS and Android, SOS Alerts will appear at the top of search results for the incident or location.Swiping up on the tab will show such information as emergency phone numbers, websites, and translations of useful phrases, plus related maps and top stories.You’ll see official alerts and tweets from first responders, too, and in some cases a timeline-like overview of the situation and donation opportunities.
We're bringing print and digital under the same roofIn the 37 years since Adweek first honored standout magazines in its annual Hot List, the publishing industry has undergone a massive transformation (to put it mildly), which we’ve been helping our readers navigate in our pages and online.As such, we felt that the Hot List itself was due for a refresher to keep apace of the increasingly digital, mobile and social world of content creation.On Oct. 30, we’ll unveil our brand new Publishing Hot List, which, for the first time, will honor the best in both print and digital publishing.We’ll continue to hand out a number of magazine-only awards—focusing solely on publishers’ print performances—while adding new digital awards, in which both digital natives and the digital arms of magazine and newspaper brands will compete.The Hot List will also look more closely at publishers’ performances on specific social platforms (namely Instagram and Snapchat) as well as their prowess in creating branded content.
Lappeenrannan teknillisen yliopiston ja VTT:n yhteisessä tutkimuksessa on tuotettu ensimmäinen erä yksisoluproteiinia sähkön ja hiilidioksidin avulla.Näin valmistettua proteiinia voidaan kehittää eläin- ja ihmisravintoon soveltuvaksi.Menetelmä irrottaa ravinnon valmistuksen ympäristön rajoitteista.Proteiinia voidaan tuottaa missä tahansa, missä uusiutuvaa energiaa saadaan esimerkiksi auringosta.Yksi vaihtoehto voi olla myös kotireaktori eli eräänlainen kodinkone, jolla kuluttaja itse voi valmistaa tarvitsemansa proteiinin", toteaa johtava tutkija Juha-Pekka Pitkänen VTT:ltä tiedotteessa.Tutkijat kehittävät proteiinia ruoan lisäksi myös eläinten ravinnoksi rehun muodossa.

Back in 2008, Chinese entrepreneur Zhou Jian did not know much about robots.ASIMO was not up for sale and renting it would cost as much as $150,000 a month.When Zhou returned to Shenzhen, China’s southern city dubbed the world’s hardware haven, he decided to build his own humanoid robots geared for mass consumer adoption.With an aging population and rising labor costs, China is pressing full steam ahead in the race for manufacturing automation: the country is now the world’s biggest spender on industrial robots, buying 27% of the products on the market.There has been less investment, however, in service robots, which include household as well as entertainment and leisure products.Global turnover in domestic service robots is projected to be $22.4 billion during that period.
Researchers at the us MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a neural network which it says will be able to deliver a recipe to a dish that someone uploading an image.You call the service for Pic2Recipe and it has been "fed" with around a million different recipes and a million pictures of the dishes.With the help of the so says the service is reasonably able to determine a recipe based on what is visible on a picture.I have tested Pic2Recipe a bit during the day and I regret to say that I am rather disappointed in the result.In nine cases out of ten, so have my images not been matched to any recipe.I absolutely have not uploaded any "difficult" stuff but most of it has been the ordinary stuff like for example the picture on the meatballs below.
On Wednesday morning, Elon Musk made a strange announcement on Twitter: His Boring Company (yes, that's what it's called) had received “verbal government approval” to build an underground hyperloop, he said."It will probably take another four to six months to get formal approval, assuming this receives support from the general public.”Bad news, Elon, my friend: The White House doesn’t have much power when it comes to rubber stamping gigantic, multi-state infrastructure projects.“The federal government owns some land, but they don’t own the Northeast corridor land, and they don’t own the right-of-way.” Sure, having presidential backing isn’t bad—but it is far, far from the ballgame.Even Musk's four- to six-month timeline seriously stretches it.Because here's what it actually takes to get approval to build gigantic, multi-billion dollar, multi-state infrastructure projects in the United States of America:
The entire game takes place in the OS, repurposing things like your email, progress bars, and internet browser.A sense of urgency, in battle and otherwise.There’s a special place in hell for unwanted pop-ups, and these pop-ups in particular can go there.When you’re exploring the world map, you also have to consider time as a limited resource.That’s the Sky Eater, a huge alien entity and the final boss, and along with it, it brings high-powered creatures.You can backtrack and go to locations that are already shrouded in shadow, but if you linger too long, you’ll encounter the Sky Eater itself.

The second trailer for "Blade Runner 2049," scheduled to hit theaters on October 6, debuted Monday on "Good Morning America."The newest trailer for the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 cult classic "Blade Runner" reveals how replicants (the human-like cyborgs) have continued to pose a threat to Los Angeles, 30 years after ex-blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) disappeared.We learn in the new footage that protagonist Officer K (Ryan Gosling) successfully tracks down Deckard, and while little context is given, we hear Deckard say, "I covered my tracks, scrambled my records, we were being hunted."This might be an indication of why he disappeared 30 years ago.Deckard's hints at a past conflict involving blade runners, along with shots of Neander Wallace (Jared Leto) creepily manufacturing replicants, is a good indicator that the newest "Blade Runner" could offer a more intense look at the impact of cyborg technology than the previous film.You can catch the newest "Blade Runner 2049" trailer here:
PITTSBURGH, July 13, 2017 - The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine has entered into an agreement with three world-renowned French research institutions, the University Pierre et Marie Curie of the Sorbonne Universités in Paris, the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (Inserm); and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), to focus on collaborative research and education in the fields of medicine and biomedical sciences.The agreement will enable researchers of all four institutions to cooperate on fundamental research, development of novel therapeutics, and clinical trials, with an initial focus on ophthalmology, vision and neuroscience.Along with joint research, the agreement also emphasizes exchange of academic personnel, joint academic conferences, and exchange of scientific, educational and scholarly materials.The agreement, signed on July 12 at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C., highlights an important partnership between Pitt and the French institutions that was spurred by the recent recruitment of José-Alain Sahel, M.D., one of the world's top experts in retinal diseases, as the chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at Pitt's School of Medicine, director of the UPMC Eye Center, and the Eye and Ear Foundation Chair of Ophthalmology.Sahel retained his connections to Paris as the founder and director of the Institut de la Vision in Paris and as a professor at the Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie of the Sorbonne Universités (which co-incidentally also is referred to by the acronym UPMC), a top ranked medical school and the largest scientific and medical complex in France.Inserm, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, is the only public research institution solely focused on human health and medical research in France and a leading medical research agency worldwide; and CNRS, the French National Center for Scientific Research is the largest governmental research organization in France and the largest fundamental science agency in Europe.

As we get closer to the official release of iOS 11, it appears a new feature may make sharing the upcoming operating system even easier.During its latest developer beta, it appears a "Start Broadcast" button has been uncovered in iOS 11, according to The Next Web.While the button doesn't seem to actually broadcast currently, (pressing the key just starts a screen recording feature) it's being speculated that the newly uncovered button allows for instant livestreaming of what's on your phone.Of course, there's no confirmation from Apple yet regarding the Start Broadcast feature's use — or even if it will even be available in the publicly released version of iOS 11 — but if this really is a new way to stream from a mobile device, we can see why Apple would be jumping on the opportunity.User-based video streams have become mega-popular in the past few years, with YouTube and Facebook Live becoming major venues for watching feeds while Amazon-owned streaming service Twitch recently updated its own mobile app to support broadcasting.While we can't call it just yet, it's possible that Apple also sees the potential in freshly beamed content from a handheld devices, and we look forward to learning what's going on in that regard later this year.

A fine wine has an ideal balance of ingredients.Too much or too little of a component could mean the difference between a wine with a sweet and fruity aroma and one that smells like wet newspaper.To help wineries avoid off-aromas, a team reports in ACS Sensors a sensitive device for detecting a compound that can affect the beverage's fragrance.Acetaldehyde is frequently found in a lot of places and foods, such as fruits, vegetables and human saliva.When present in high amounts in wine, it produces an unpleasant odor and affects the fermentation process.Therefore, it is important for winemakers to monitor the acetaldehyde levels, which can vary with temperature, pH and oxygen concentrations.
