Sadly, it's not unusual to see a new makeshift memorial spring up in London: cellotaphs, as they're known, formed of piles of flowers and rain-soaked notes on the site of an accident or crime.But people who've been stopping to see what happened at the new one on Tooley Street by London Bridge station might be surprised to find that it's not for a person, but a train company - specifically, crisis-hit Southern Rail.The memorial's been there for a couple of days now, but Londoner MinnieMoomin posted it to Reddit with an explanation - and surprised some locals who assumed it was something much sadder.While the decline of our railways into national chaos is certainly depressing, it's not quite on par with the events that usually lead to street tributes.Notes at the site include "Here lies my patience, sanity and home life, killed by Southern Rail" and "In loving memory of the 07.55 from Hackbridge to London Bridge, missing, presumed dead."While it's certainly an eye-catching and attention-grabbing way of raising an important issue, it seems more than a little tasteless to go about it this way, especially as there are frequent fatalities on London's train lines.

Earlier this month, a report jointly compiled by the NSA, CIA and FBI concluded that Russia's intelligence services had conducted hacking attacks against organisations involved with the 2016 US presidential election, with the most high profile target being the Democratic National Committee DNC .Assessing the impact of the leaks that followed on the election itself is hard, and Russia has denied any involvement with any of these activities.But the impact of the hacking attacks on the US election process -- whoever was responsible -- will range far and wide this year, according to experts.TheShadowBrokers is going dark, making exit.Continuing is being much risk and bullshit, not many bitcoins.On the same day Guccifer 2.0 -- a character that US intelligence agencies think was created by Russian military intelligence to serve as a conduit for the data stolen from the Democratic National Committee and others in the run up to the US presidential election, also broke 'his' silence.

Ever 3D-printed an object and then changed your mind about the design?Now, however, scientists at MIT have created a 3D printing method that allows them to alter a printed object.Stereolithography is a common 3D printing technique that works by shining light onto a liquid solution of monomers - the building blocks of plastic and other materials - to form layer upon layer of solid polymers in a specific design or pattern, until the final shape is complete.The new MIT method, however, allows them to add polymers that alter the material's chemical composition and mechanical properties.Jeremiah Johnson, the Firmenich career development associate professor of Chemistry at MIT, said: The idea is that you could print a material and subsequently take that material and, using light, morph the material into something else, or grow the material further.In 2013, Johnson and his colleagues demonstrated that they could use UV light to stimulate the polymers and add new features to 3D-printed materials.

One of the world's biggest aerospace companies plans to test a prototype of a flying car by the end of this year, a move that could be a big step towards easing congestion on urban roads.Airbus's chief executive, Tom Enders, told a technology conference in Germany that it planned to test a small prototype vehicle by the end of the year.Last year Airbus formed a division called Urban Air Mobility to investigate ideas such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders.The aim would be for people to book the vehicle using an app, similar to car-sharing schemes.Airbus has been working on "vertical take-off and landing" VTOL technology that would allow vehicles to pick up passengers in busy urban areas, and has said it expects to be putting them into production by 2021.Although flying cars have been a staple of science fiction for decades, investment in the concept is finally emerging.

Does the number of variants matter?I can do a sample size calculator but I'm not sure if that just works for simple A/B testing.For example, we have 100k email list.Using this tool: http://www.macorr.com/sample-size-calculator.htm, my sample size is 6373 for 90% confidence with 1% margin of error.Does that mean I send 6373x5 or does that number only work for a 50/50 send?

A security researcher has developed a tool that can automatically detect sensitive access keys that have been hard-coded inside software projects.The Truffle Hog tool was created by U.S.-based researcher Dylan Ayrey and is written in Python.It searches for hard-coded access keys by scanning deep inside git code repositories for strings that are 20 or more characters and which have a high entropy.A high Shannon entropy, named after American mathematician Claude E. Shannon, would suggest a level of randomness that makes it a candidate for a cryptographic secret, like an access token.Hard-coding access tokens for various services in software projects is considered a security risk because those tokens can be extracted without much effort by hackers.Unfortunately this practice is very common.

They re either deep explorations of the familiar—STEREO s focus on the sun, the International Space Station s study of what microgravity does to the human body—or a trip to some crazy place no one has ever seen before.But still, any strange, distant object the agency targets will likely hold some clue about the origins of life.Humans are spacefaring narcissists that way.NASA s newly announced Lucy and Psyche missions fall squarely into the second category.The robotic missions, planned to launch in 2021 and 2023 respectively, are set to target mysterious, unstudied asteroids.Lucy will follow NASA s Juno mission out to Jupiter to study the Trojan asteroids orbiting with the gas giant, and Psyche will visit an odd metal asteroid, 16 Psyche, in the main asteroid belt—the only object of its kind in our solar system.
