A solution to the croissant crumb problemFrench nationals, tourists - in fact anyone and everyone - may soon be able to get their kit off and walk through Paris - well, a designated area - without fear of a hefty fine.The Green Party for the capital of love will today propose at a city council meeting that a nudist park be created, though the exact location has yet to be confirmed.Keen for the application to be made a reality, Jacques Fremont, veep of the Association for the Promotion of Naturism in Liberty APNEL , reckoned a spot close to the Damesnil lake in Bois de Vincennes, east of the city, was suitable.He told the 20 Minutes newspaper his group was created to promote, or defend, depending on your perspective, an ideal world where clothed and butt-naked humans mingling cheek-to-cheek posed no problem .Under French law, members of the public that choose to stroll unencumbered in their birthday suit can find themselves slapped with a €15,000 fine and potentially up to a year in prison.

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is moving forward with plans for a smart home hub, joining the Amazon Echo and the upcoming Google Home device in the battle to take over your house.Like the Echo, this device would let users control their lights, locks and other smart-homey stuff using voice activation.Bloomberg s report follows similar rumblings written about by The Information earlier this year.Bloomberg says that Apple has been working on this project for more than two years, but stresses it could still be scrapped.So how Apple s answer to the Amazon Echo be different from the voice-controlled devices we have now?According to Bloomberg, the new Apple device could include some potentially creepy facial recognition features:

The timing first nicely with the upcoming launch of Google's Pixel phones, which should lead the parade of compatible hardware.Google s ambitious foray into VR just passed an important milestone.Daydream VR is now out of beta, which means that developers can start getting their apps ready for the platform s official launch.The only eligible test device so far has been the Nexus 6P, and even that came with the caveat that it would run quite hot and thermally throttle CPU and GPU performance after a short period of use, depending on workload, according to Google s developer documentation.The VR SDK supports both Google s Cardboard and Daydream efforts.The latter includes a proprietary controller that Google developed in partnership with Unity and Unreal for native integration.

At least 15,769 WordPress websites - and probably more - have been compromised this year, half slipping past Google's Safe Browsing checks, says security researcher Daniel Cid.The world's most popular content management system represented the lion's share of some 21,821 sites studied in the second 2016 Sucuri report on compromised web properties that found 3099 Joomla!sites were hacked in the same period.Statistics plummeted for hacked Magento, Drupal, vBulletin, and Modx sites.Almost three quarters of all compromised sites in the study were backdoored, providing criminals a means to load various malicious payloads, target visitors, and use the web sites for further attacks.Those backdoors are often harder for web integrity scanners to detect.

What the hell is that you're drinking?It's probably not tea as, despite Google making tea the Google Doodle for the UK today, the nation's supposed national drink is in something of a death spiral as glamorous upstart coffee literally upsets the traditional drinks table.Having run out of dead scientists and women who did things to celebrate the birthdays of, Google has made tea the animated thing atop its search results today.It says it's doing this because it's the 358th anniversary of tea in the UK.So happy birthday tea, even if Google's dating of the origination of tea is more than a bit vague and basically plucked out of thin air.But in a tragic twist for the beverage, it would appear to be on the way out.

The speed is considered to be 100 times faster than current mobile networks supporting video streaming.T-Mobile and Ericsson have achieved data transfer speeds of 12Gbps during a 5G test.The trial involved a voice call between 4G and 5G networks, using a radio prototype system from Ericsson and T-Mobile s LTE network and devices.The trial showed that it was possible to reach download speeds of up to 12Gbps in 5G and ultra-low latency connections of less than 2 milliseconds.The 5G trial was conducted at one of Ericsson s facilities and it included test demonstrations of two-directional beam steering in a call between 4G and 5G networks, while multiple simultaneous 4K video streams were taking place.The two companies collaborated in February this year to work on 5G pre-standards based on 28GHz test system for lab and field tests in US.

For thirty years, scientists have argued over how these tiny algae came to rest thousands of feet above the sea.Now, sophisticated ice sheet models offer one of the best explanations yet — and it doesn t bode well for our future.Since three-million-year-old diatoms were first discovered in the Transantarctic mountain range that separates East and West Antarctica in 1984, they ve been at the centre of an intense scientific debate.One side, the stabilists , says that fierce polar winds blew the creatures aloft from a faraway ocean.In the dynamicist view, the diatoms were brought to their present location by the migration of glaciers as Earth s climate went from hot to cold.The debate is less esoteric than it seems.

Gnome's developers have let version 3.22 GUADEC the name of its primary European conference loose on the world.The release builds on March's 3.20 Delhi release, and the major shift this time around is that it rounds out Flatpak support.The Flatpak – formerly xdg-app – framework has been fully assimilated; there's no need for users to drop down to the command line to install Flatpak apps.Gnome's Software manager also shows when apps are sandboxed by Flatpak, and identifies the source of an application when the distribution doesn't provide it.Other enhancements to Software include highlighting whether or not an application is free software, and more application tiles on the landing page.Batch file renaming has been added to Gnome's Files app, supporting either search-and-replace or template-based names.

Going to businesses door to door selling web design services has been getting us some traction but honestly the hours put in vs the output is not very encouraging.We usually give out flyers and a card and explain what we provide for $99 a month.No idea how I can actually get people to sign up rather then blow us off or schedule other meet up times.

Dell EMC CEO Michael Dell and Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins have indulged in a very public display of affection for each other, at least so far as the two companies' collaboration in the VCE converged infrastructure company is concerned.When owned by EMC, VCE's original VBlocks used Cisco UCS servers and Cisco networking kit.VCE later added the VxBlock range, which used other servers but kept Cisco networking.The Robbins-and-Dell-the-man video is full of scripted corp-speak, but the message is clear: Cisco will still be present in VCE kit even though Dell is a noted manufacturer of servers.The video also re-confirms that Dell and Cisco will continue to partner in other areas.There's more than a little of a don't panic vibe about the video and accompanying blogs, at least for customers The deeper message seems to be that both companies find the other a useful route to market under some circumstances.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. AP -- Gov.Jerry Brown has signed legislation that regulates emissions from dairy cows and landfills for the first time as California broadens its efforts to fight climate change beyond carbon-based greenhouse gases.Brown's move Monday targets a category of gases known as short-lived climate pollutants, which have an outsize effect on global warming despite their relatively short life in the atmosphere.Environmentalists hope that tackling short-lived pollutants such as methane now would buy time to develop new and more affordable technology to reduce carbon emissions.The legislation lays out steep reductions in a variety of pollutants, including methane.It's tied to $90 million in funding for the dairy industry and garbage collectors.

James Comey, the director of the FBI, has defended using a piece of tape to cover the webcam on his personal laptop – and recommends that everyone else does the same in order to stop hackers from spying on users.He explained that computers in US government offices have lids that block off cameras, saying: "You do that so that people who don't have authority don't look at you.The FBI director, who first revealed his use of the precautionary measure earlier this year, is "of course referring to hackers that can easily access a computer's webcam and spy on users", reports TechRadar.Many people have commented on Comey's hypocrisy after he launched a high-profile battle against Apple this year to gain access to iPhone data used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists, says The Hill.The research, carried out by Plan International UK, ranked Middlesbrough in North Yorkshire as the worst place for girls to grow up in, with Blackpool, Manchester and Nottingham coming in behind.The campaign group used indicators including child poverty, female life expectancy, teenage pregnancy, GCSE grades and whether girls were in education, employment or training.
