Its 38-person content studio, Bonnier News Brand Studio, sits within Bonnier News’ sales division and pitches and executes all native ad business across the five newspapers, which include Expressen, financial daily Dagens Industri, national newspaper Dagens Nyheter and regional newspapers Helsingborgs Dagblad and Sydsvenskan.These have a combined reach of 5 million weekly unique users, according to media research firm Orvesto Consumer — a decent chunk of Sweden’s total population of just under 10 million people.Since it started in 2013, Bonnier News Brand Studio has operated separately from the five different news desks, though to ensure content mirrors the look and feel of the editorial, 90 percent of native content is published via the same CMS that the news desks use.When clients request their campaigns run across the full network, the design, style and tone of native ads are tweaked according to the different styles of the five newspapers.While distributing across five publishers is good for scaling a campaign, it’s costly, so just 10 percent of the 140 clients the content studio has a year opt for this.A Bonnier News Brand Studio staffer now attends all Expressen’s news meetings to learn the day’s news agenda, what stories are being planned and how many articles will run and at what times.

A bomb-sniffing pup just couldn't make the cut for the CIA's explosive detection canine training program.The intelligence agency said in a blog post Wednesday that Lulu, part of the fall 2017 "puppy class," began to show signs "she wasn’t interested in detecting explosive odors" after a few weeks into training.Puppies in the program, like human students in the classrooms, can have good and bad days when learning something new."A pup might begin acting lazy, guessing where the odors are, or just showing a general disregard for whatever is being taught at the moment," according to the blog post.Usually that can last a day or two.When a dog in the program has a "bad day," their trainers try to figure out what will help the pup get back on track.

A study conducted by the University of Leicester and KU Leuven, Belgium, examined how small worlds emerge spontaneously in all kinds of networks, including neuronal and social networks, giving rise to the well-known phenomenon of "six degrees of separation".They arise in society as well as ecological and protein networks, the networks of the mammalian brain, and even human-built networks such as the Boston subway and the World Wide Web.A study recently published in Scientific Reports by an international team of academics from the University of Leicester and KU Leuven showed that these remarkable structures are reached and maintained by the network diffusion, i.e.The research presents a solution to the long-standing question of why the vast majority of networks around us (WWW, brain, roads, power grid infrastructure) might have a peculiar yet common structure: small-world topology.The algorithm just modifies a network that is already highly organised."The emergence is effectuated through adaptive rewiring: progressive adaptation of structure to use, creating short-cuts where network diffusion is intensive while annihilating underused connections.

Some of the most widely beloved television shows in recent memory are Netflix originals, and it looks like that streaming giant is going to keep cranking out more original programming.The house (not House of Cards) that Netflix built has more competition than ever, but a recent earnings report shows that the company is very much dominating the streaming TV game, and could wind up spending $8 billion on original programming next year.The Los Gatos, California-based company impressed at this year’s Emmy Awards, earning 91 nominations and taking home 20 trophies.Over the past five years, Netflix has successfully transitioned from a content distributor to a content producer, and now boasts a massive stable of popular original programming.Based on its quarterly earnings report, Netflix is actually growing faster than expected, and has increased its estimated budget for new content in 2018 by roughly $1 billion.In August, we reported that Apple was planning to spend $1 billion on original content over the next year.

(Reuters) — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to resolve a major privacy dispute between the Justice Department and Microsoft Corp. over whether prosecutors should get access to emails stored on company servers overseas.The justices will hear the Trump administration’s appeal of a lower court’s ruling last year preventing federal prosecutors from obtaining emails stored in Microsoft computer servers in Dublin, Ireland in a drug trafficking investigation.That decision by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals marked a victory for privacy advocates and technology companies that increasingly offer cloud computing services in which data is stored remotely.Microsoft, which has 100 data centers in 40 countries, was the first U.S. company to challenge a domestic search warrant seeking data held outside the country.“If U.S. law enforcement can obtain the emails of foreigners stored outside the United States, what’s to stop the government of another country from getting your emails even though they are located in the United States?” Brad Smith, Microsoft’s president and chief legal officer, said in a blog post on Monday.The Justice Department said in its appeal that the lower court ruling “gravely threatens public safety and national security” because it limits the government’s ability to “ward off terrorism and similar national security threats and to investigate and prosecute crimes.”

While Apple opted for Touch ID with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, next year’s iPhones could possibly abandon the feature completely.The 2018 iPhone lineup may adopt Face ID for all of its next-generation devices, reports 9to5Mac.With Face ID, you can unlock your phone and allow access to other features on your device by scanning your features.It uses a neural engine to map the contours and shapes of your face in real time — but isn’t confused by hairstyles, hats, or beards.Apple also says there is only a one-in-million chance someone can find a way around the system — whereas Touch ID has a one-in-50,00 chance.KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently claimed that the future of Face ID was extremely dependent on the consumer reaction to the iPhone X.

Justice minister Morgan Johansson (S) shall now examine the data on to the administrative court of Appeal asked the wrong question to the EUROPEAN court of justice when it rejected the Swedish data store. "It's an interesting discussion," he says to TT.When the court of appeal has put his question to the EUROPEAN court of justice last year, a question on which the court then assumed, in his response, described to the storage of the data as that it covered all electronic communications and all traffic data without any limitation or exception.the EUROPEAN court of justice found that it is not compatible with EU law.One such data storage, however, has not been done in Sweden.Both the Fbi and Sigurd Heuman, who investigated the storage of the data, considers therefore that the EU-court brief was incorrect.

Mere minutes can be the difference between life and death for someone who’s suffering from a stroke.According to a large-scale report by Medscape, which is owned by WebMD, doctors on average spend 13-16 minutes with each patient.Research shows many people worry their medical issues might be a waste of their physicians’ time – so they keep their complaints to themselves.Patients who were interviewed for the study talked about “the pressured context in which their consultations take place: the limited resources, the lack of time, and busy doctors.”Other patients are less worried about squandering their GP’s time, but claim doctors are wasting their time.In 2014, a health IT solutions designer named Jess Jacobs started keeping track of all the hours she spent at her hospital.

Western Digital (WD) has announced its next biggest innovation in hard drives, and it could bring capacities all the way up to 40 terabytes.At its San Jose, California headquarters, WD announced the world’s first microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) hard drives.The storage company claims its innovative MAMR technology will enable its future hard drives to store more than four terabytes-per-square-inch.The result will enable hard drives that could come with 40 terabytes of capacity and beyond by 2025.At the heart of WD’s MAMR technology is a new spin-torque oscillator that generates a miniature microwave field that increases the ability to record ultra-high-density data.Basically, as the recording arm floats over the hard drive’s data platter, this extra radiation from the spin-torque oscillator helps excite the disk drive’s data storing medium to increase the amount of information that can be written.

Over the past few years, companies have gotten increasingly better at wasting their time and money in digital.Kickstart an innovation initiative to build out “capabilities” that fit into a trend that everyone agrees is important, like AI.When it comes to what you actually do in digital, spend a lot of money on ads.By this point we’re usually a few years into this strategy, nothing has changed, and folks in the C-suite are getting antsy for results.Yet most of these decisions aren’t actually wrong on their surface.Rather, they only reveal themselves as wrong when the underlying assumptions behind them are identified and questioned.

Do you think the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 controller is too big?Then Hori’s new adorable-looking Wired Mini Gamepad might just be the controller for you.The miniature controller works like a regular DualShock, with all the buttons and triggers that you’d expect.Even the touch pad is there, sort of: there’s a dedicated button to simulate a click on top of the controller, and a “TP” button on the bottom that lets you use control sticks to simulate the gestures.And while it’s a wired controller, the cord is three meters long (or just shy of 10 feet), so unless you’ve got a really huge living room, it should reach your couch just fine.The new controller is the latest in a series of officially licensed PS4 controllers that Sony is releasing, following the first pair, which launched last December.

Defy Ventures is a nonprofit that helps prisoners start businesses while they're still incarcerated.The six-month course culminates in a "Shark Tank"-style pitch competition that puts inmates before executive volunteers.About two hours north of Manhattan, in a sparse room filled with 25 high-powered executives, Robert Cassato delivered his three-minute pitch smoothly and confidently from the stage.The program helps convicts use their penchant for hustling in productive and legal ways, Defy founder and CEO Catherine Hoke said.The 25 executives were volunteers acting as a judging panel for the pitches, which ranged from apparel companies to drone fleets designed to identify and help repair crumbling infrastructure.The EITs spent at least six months developing their ideas from scratch.

Compared to the world's initial Justice League glimpses at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, a new trailer from this weekend's New York Comic-Con outlines more of what seems like a plot for the November 17 film."The world remains in mourning after the death of Superman," one broadcaster notes early in the new teaser.The Daily Planet only takes it up another notch from there with a simple headline: World Without Hope.Taking place after the events of 2016's Batman V. Superman, Justice League sees Batman and Wonder Woman returning to deal with extraterrestrial beings descending upon Earth and seemingly fulfilling Lex Luthor's end-of-world prophecies.In a pickle and without the services of the Man of Steel, the duo evidently embarks on successful recruiting missions for Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash.(The comic-heads in your life may also note hints at what seems to be Darkseid's involvement.)
