Tropical Storm Sanvu is strengthening and imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite revealed what looks like a thick tail to the storm.The infrared data actually showed a thick feeder band of thunderstorms wrapping into the low-level center of circulation.The Atmospheric Infrared or AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on Tropical Cyclone Sanvu on Aug. 29 at 11:47 a.m. (1547 UTC).Cloud top temperatures are an important factor when it comes to determining the strength of storms.The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger the storms.The image showed that the coldest cloud tops were colder than minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius).
If Google knows one thing, it's how to get a lot of people to use its technology.The search giant has seven products with more than a billion users, including Google Maps, Gmail and its iconic search engine.To win over another billion, Google wants to bring something else to the masses: augmented reality, or AR.On Tuesday, the company announced ARCore, a set of tools that lets software developers build AR experiences for Android, Google's mobile operating system.Think Pokemon Go monsters circling around you or Snapchat filters that animate flower crowns over your head.The move follows a similar one by Apple, which released a set of tools called ARKit for iPhone developers in June.
The massive crackdown on the internet’s festering white supremacist contingent claimed another victory this weekend: Stormfront.The neo-Nazi forum has a much longer and deadlier history than more recent sites like the Daily Stormer or The Right Stuff, with Holocaust denial posts from the site’s founder Don Black appearing on USENET newsgroups as early as 1985.Stormfront grew out of those pre-internet newsgroups—like alt.skinheads, alt.revisionism, alt.politics.nationalism.white—eventually becoming a standalone site whose members have been directly linked to almost 100 bias-related murders.Black, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard, learned the skills to build Stormfront during his three years in federal prison, which he served for attempting a violent overthrow of Dominica, an island just north of Martinique.The New York Times reports that “Nazi and Confederate flags, dynamite and 30 high-powered rifles” were among the items found by authorities when he and nine other men were caught.Currently, a Whois search shows that Stormfront.org’s domain provider—Network Solutions LLC, a company under Web.com—has placed a hold on the site.

Technology has greatly changed how we produce content.No longer burned by large professional equipment, we can now stash our gear alongside our clothes and other possessions when we hit the road.That, however, doesn’t meant that every luggage or bag can rise up to the challenges of safely and conveniently storing our portable but still expensive devices, cameras, and whatnot.It’s more than just a duffel bag is the tagline from creators WANDRD.The HEXAD, however, has enough straps to allow you to carry it in any way you see fit, like a backpack, for example.And you might indeed want to carry it that way because you’ll be tempted to stow away anything and everything inside the HEXAD Carryall.

Pääjohtaja Mikko Helander sanoo, että tulevaisuudessa Kesko myy verkossa ruokaa ja muita päivittäistavaroita selvästi nykyistä enemmän."Otamme verkkokaupassa ison roolin", sanoo Helander Keskon aikeista Talouselämän haastattelussa.Kauppayhtiön vahvuuksia verkkokaupassakin ovat hänen mukaansa olemassa olevat asiakaskunta ja logistinen järjestelmä.Verkkomyynnin osuus ruokakaupasta on Suomessa yhä häviävän pieni, noin 0,2 prosenttia.Tarkkaa numeroa hän ei suostu niittaamaan, mutta länsieurooppalainen 4-5 prosentin taso on hyvä tavoite.Suomessa päivittäistavarakauppa on mennyt verkkoon hitaasti verrokkimaihinkin verrattuna.
Philippe Stark, the legendary designer of the Xiaomi Mi Mix, has revealed images of what he whats the Mi Mix 2 to look like.Now before we all get too excited lets all look at this image for what it actually is, a concept.Although the Mi Mix 2 is scheduled to launch on 12th September, we don’t actually know what the phone will look like and we don’t even know if the designer of the original Mi Mix has had anything to do with the updated phone.However, if Philippe Stark has had anything to do with the Mi Mix 2, and why wouldn’t he after designing the successful Mi Mix, we do have a very clear idea what the flagship concept phone will look like.The device is very clearly a near bezel less phone with the screen making its way to the very edges of the top, left and right of the handset, while almost reaching right the way down to the very bottom of the front of the device.Stark revealed the Mi Mix 2 concept on Facebook via a video while shows the front of the handset, the slender sides but doesn’t reveal what’s going on around the back of the phone leading to speculation on if the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will have a dual camera feature, or if it will have an under screen fingerprint scanner or traditional rear mounted option.
... try to take over your public cloudy worlds (one array at a time)Newly-IPO’d Tintri has made its storage array bigger, better and faster by extending it out to the AWS and IBM clouds, speeding VMotion, upping its scalability limit and predicting future capacity and compute needs.It says its on-premises arrays meet autonomous services, rapid elasticity or expansion, automation, and resource pooling cloud service definitions listed by NIST so it is, effectively, a public cloud-like service on-premises.Having its cloud cake and eating it, the company is introducing a Cloud Connect product to send array snapshot data at the VM or container level to either AWS, via S3, or the IBM COS public clouds.Such a cloud backup can be restored to any Tintri VMstore array.CTO and co-founder Kieran Harty said: “The logical space in the public cloud is 10 times or more of what you actually consume there.”
Your favourite brands haven't always had the sleek, user-friendly interfaces you're used to today.Everyone must start from somewhere, even the likes of Amazon and McDonald's.Unfortunately, most of the resulting efforts were pretty terrible.There was no winning model to follow, so designers were left stabbing in the dark.We used a combination of images from Educational consultants Essayroo and the Wayback Machine, which archives old websites, to dig up some of the most basic sites brands like Coca-Cola and Booking.com had when they first launched.Scroll down to laugh at their primitiveness, ordered by launch date.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Biomedical engineers have grown miniature human blood vessels that exhibit many of the symptoms and drug reactions associated with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome -- an extremely rare genetic disease that causes symptoms resembling accelerated aging in children.The technology will help doctors and researchers screen potential therapeutics for the disease more rapidly, with the goal of eventually creating a platform for personalized screening.The technique also offers a new way to study other rare diseases and could provide insights into treating heart disease in the elderly."One of the drugs currently prescribed for this disease extends patients' lives by three months, and that's been considered a major feat," said Leigh Atchison, a doctoral candidate in biomedical engineering at Duke University and first author of the study.Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome -- or simply progeria for short -- is a non-hereditary genetic disease caused by a single-point mutation in the genome.This causes the nucleus to take on an abnormal shape and inhibits its ability to divide.
