With movies, such as Jobs and The Social Network presenting millennial entrepreneurs as brilliant and youthful gladiators, it is important to stay focused on the underlying trends with successful young entrepreneurs.After inspecting the current landscape, there are a number of traits, besides sheer genius or age, that are accurate predictors of success.Despite having a less typical entrepreneurship story, David Kurzmann, the co-founder and CEO of Women’s Best, has built a brand reach of 150 million people and 8-figures in annual revenue.While entrepreneurs love to claim that they are fearless, taking unnecessary risks is foolish.At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is the money.Most organizations say they are results-oriented, but most organizations are also not results-oriented.
Today is a day the Google faithful have been waiting a couple of weeks for.The Pixel 2 officially goes on sale across the US today, though unfortunately, your options are limited if you’re looking to buy, thanks to an exclusivity deal the big G has struck with Verizon.At least Google’s got those pop-up stores in Manhattan and Los Angeles you can visit, right?According to a new write up from The Verge’s Chris Welch, Google’s pop-up stores should be the last place you visit in your quest to acquire a Pixel 2.Welch visited the store in Manhattan today, and though he said that the store was nice enough, there we a few problems when it came to actually purchasing his phone.For starters, Welch writes that Google seems to have recruited an authorized Verizon retailer to handle the checkout and activation process in its pop-up stores.
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- Researchers at MIT have developed a synthetic gene circuit that triggers the body's immune system to attack cancers when it detects signs of the disease.The circuit, which will only activate a therapeutic response when it detects two specific cancer markers, is described in a paper published today in the journal Cell.Immunotherapy is widely seen as having considerable potential in the fight against a range of cancers."There has been a lot of clinical data recently suggesting that if you can stimulate the immune system in the right way you can get it to recognize cancer," says Lu, who is head of the Synthetic Biology Group in MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics."Some of the best examples of this are what are called checkpoint inhibitors, where essentially cancers put up stop signs [that prevent] T-cells from killing them.However, despite this success, the use of immunotherapy remains limited by the scarcity of tumor-specific antigens -- substances that can trigger an immune system response to a particular type of cancer.
Lawmakers from both the Republican and Democratic parties are getting ready to introduce legislation that would require political ads to be held to the same standards for transparency online as they are in traditional formats like TV and radio.The bill known as the “Honest Ads Act” is expected to be filed in the U.S. Senate on Thursday and aims to “prevent foreign interference in future elections,” according to a statement from the office of Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the ranking member of the Senate Rules Committee.The legislation will be co-sponsored by Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain and Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, giving it bipartisan support.The bill comes just two weeks before a Nov. 1 hearing at which Facebook, Google and Twitter have been asked to speak to the Senate Intelligence Committee about how Russian operatives used their platforms to influence the 2016 presidential election.It’s still unclear to what length the legislation will go in terms of requiring transparency of online political ads.“Russia attempted to influence the 2016 presidential election by buying and placing political ads on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google,” according to a joint statement from Klobuchar’s and Warner’s offices.
Regina Dugan, the head of Facebook's internal hardware lab, has announced that she is leaving the company after just a year and a half.In her departure message, she wrote that she is leaving to "lead a new endeavor," although it's not clear what that may be.Neither Dugan or Facebook has named a replacement yet.Dugan was previously employed at Google before her time as VP of Engineering at Facebook's Building 8.While there, she worked on projects like Tango, an augmented reality device, as well as project Ara, the modular smartphone.She also has ties to government having served as the director of DARPA.
It sounds better than the last entry-level Sonos speaker, it’s compatible with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant, and it will be compatible with Google Assistant soon.It’s a great speaker for the price, and it’s a must-have component for music lovers living in modern smart homes.But once you’ve done that, you can tell Alexa to play the artist or song of your choice on any of the speakers in that group.If I click the Everywhere button in the Sonos app, I can tell Alexa to play music in any of those rooms, and she’ll play the same music all over the house.The onboard amplifier is the same, but the power supply has been redesigned.“Other than that,” according to my contact, “the only shared parts are the bottom rubber feet and bottom plastic cap.”
It doesn't matter who owns the server, since even if it is MS Ireland, they're almost certainly a wholly owned subsidiary of MS US, meaning that MS US owns that data regardless.And if the US government compels MS US to hand the data over, they'll be making a request that's illegal in the country where the action must be undertaken, regardless of whether it's MS US or MS Ireland doing the deed, so in that regard it also doesn't matter who owns the server.Of course, just because it doesn't matter who owns the server doesn't mean it's legal for the US government to make that request, nor that it's legal for MS (regardless of which brand we're talking about) to hand the data over.Ideally, the people on the ground in Ireland would simply refuse to comply with the order if MS was compelled to hand over the data.After all, the US government has no authority over them, nor an ability to prosecute them, nor an ability to pursue a prosecution of them via diplomatic channels given that the request was illegal in the first place.In fact, the proper way for this to work is that the US government uses those diplomatic channels to seek an extraction of the data pursuant to its treaties with Ireland or the EU.
With an artificial intelligence and photography in focus took the chinese phone manufacturer Huawei stage during its launch in Munich.this time it was 5.9 and tummaren Mate 10, and it becomes the model Mate 10 Pro initially reach Swedish latitudes.Just the battery is a total of 4 000 mAh, but should still be able to be loaded to 58% in half an hour.Around the cameras continue Huawei to cooperate with Leica, and this time offered it again on the dual lenses; a color of 12 megapixels and a monochrome lens 20.It is also equipped with stabilizer OIS, "the world's largest dual f/1.6 aperture" and ai-driven Bokeh effect, but the zoom will be digital rather than optical in nature.the Ai is also used to configure the photo settings on the basis of kringmiljön and its lighting.
Tesla tvingas trycka på nödbromsen.Bolaget ska ha kapat cirka 400 tjänster förra veckan.Det skriver Reuters som har pratat med en tidigare anställd.Tesla kommenterar saken i ett mejl till nyhetsbyrån och skriver där att det var en del av den årliga översynen av bolaget.Men vill inte gå in på några siffror och bolaget vägrar bekräfta hur många det handlar om.– Det handlar om ungefär 400 personer, från vanliga anställda till chefer.
Hyperloop One has received a significant investment in Hyperloop One – the official figure hasn’t been revealed, but it’s enough that the Hyperloop tech startup, which aims to create networks of high-speed transportation tunnels to various locales across the globe, has changed its name.Virgin Hyperloop One is the entity’s official moniker going forward, which is quite a mouthful.Virgin Hyperloop One’s rebrand will mean it gains from association with Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, whose high-tech transportation exploits include Virgin Galactic and other space-based ventures.The goal of the company under the rebrand remains the same, and it’ll continue to explore the best places and partners for deploying its high-speed transportation tech, which will zoom pods at high speed down extremely low pressure tubes to reduce trip times over land from hours to minutes.The money isn’t the only connection between Hyperloop One and Virgin; the Hyperloop company’s President of Engineering Josh Giegel is a former Virgin employee.Branson noted in a blog post that he also visited Hyperloop One earlier this summer to view its technology first-hand, at the Hyperloop One DevLoop test track site in Nevada outside Los Vegas.
Here's something you don't see everyday: a Silicon Valley platform, whose revenue is based on advertising, has shunned a political advertisement because it's "inflammatory."The micro-blogging service on Monday took down a Blackburn campaign video ad that said, "I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God."In the advertisement, Blackburn also announced her 2018 Senate bid to replace retiring Republican Bob Corker.Blackburn tweeted that "@Twitter shut down our video ad, claiming it's 'inflammatory & 'negative.'"The video is blanketing Twitter and social media now, but Twitter has solely blocked the ability to pay to promote the advertising campaign.Twitter hasn't removed Blackburn's tweet or other tweets from people who link to the video.
Despite being designed for one specific purpose — to shoot action — GoPro cameras pack a lot of features into a small package.This is part of the reason why they’re so popular, but it can also make it kind of difficult to figure out which GoPro model best suits your needs.With the release of the Hero6 Black, GoPro now has roughly half a dozen models for sale, many with overlapping features that can make differentiating them a bit confusing.To save you the hassle of sorting through spec sheets, we’ve summarized the best parts of each to help you pick the best GoPro camera for your adrenaline-fueled needs.(Not included in this list is the GoPro Fusion, a 360-degree action camera for creating immersive VR content.)The GoPro Hero4 Silver and Black have fallen far behind their successors in terms of specs, but they’re still fantastic cameras in their own right.
After a series of sexual harassment allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Apple has pulled the plug on an Elvis Presley biopic series from the Weinstein Company.The Weinstein Co., founded by Harvey and his brother Bob, fired Weinstein on Sunday, after a bombshell New York Times report detailed decades of sexual harassment accusations against him.The Elvis project was in very early stages but Apple decided to kill the project, according to Deadline.The Elvis biopic was “just past the dealmaking stage” and was conceived a few months ago, according to Deadline.The project predated the new video division in Apple Music, led by former Sony executives Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg.Sign up for the free Good Morning Silicon Valley newsletter.
Welcome to Episode 6 of Upgrade My PC Please!As you've likely noticed by now, we're grouping somewhat similar PCs to compete against each other for a well deserved upgrade.Last week we had five AMD APU-based systems and you voted Vince’s 'PotatoSama' the most worthy of receiving the proposed upgrades.Coming Vince’s way is a brand new Ryzen 3 1200 CPU, Asrock B350 motherboard, 8GB of DDR4 memory, a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, and an EVGA 500 B1 power supply, so basically a new computer (!).Congratulations to Vince and to the four runners-up who will be receiving a Rainbow Six Siege game code courtesy of Ubisoft.Big thanks to them for supporting the series and providing our contestants with free games.
During september and October, many Android manufacturers heard of different component manufacturers in Asia with the questions about the 3d-sensors, writes KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a new report to investors.the Companies ' interest started after Apple's launch of the Iphone X, which has changed from the fingerprint reader to a chinese art known as Face ID, which reads out the face shape in 3d instead of its two-dimensional representation as in the past chinese art, which has been used by Microsoft and Samsung.in the Past, manufacturers have competed to be first to a fingerprint reader mounted under the screen, but according to Kuo, it's now only a minor improvement of existing technology and not revolutionary.Face ID-competitors being developed right now by Qualcomm in collaboration with Himax, Orbbec, and Mantis Vision.the Solution from Qualcomm/Himax should have come the furthest.An advantage for manufacturers who want to develop cheaper phones is that the 3d-sensors work with lcd monitors.
Maybe it’s a sign of the uncertain world we currently live in (hello, incipient nuclear apocalypse) but automakers can’t stop imagining beefy trucks perfect for escaping burning cities or ramming through zombie hordes.Toyota is joining the club with the Tj Cruiser concept, “a new van and fusion genre” that targets crossover buyers.The goal is flexibility, which is pretty important when all the potable water is tainted and you need to raid the abandoned Walmart down the block.Finally, “Cruiser” has been well used in Toyota’s SUV range, and “expresses the power of the vehicle” the automaker says.Sensibly, Toyota’s designers started with the most basic – and flexible – shape, so the Tj Cruiser concept is squared off like a utilitarian van.The hood, roof, and bumpers are coated with a scratch- and dirt-resistant material to shake off highway grime and parking lot dings alike.
New atomic clock will help answer some fundamental questions about quantum physics.And maybe stop us being late for meetings, too!An international team of physicists want to challenge that assertion, courtesy of their new atomic clock — which is capable of measuring time down to a couple quadrillionths of a second.Atomic clocks have been around since 1948, but the new design puts a fresh spin on the technology.It packs strontium atoms — used for carrying out the time measurement — into a tiny three-dimensional cube at 1,000 times the density of previous one-dimensional atomic clocks.Doing so allows the researchers to then use ultra-stable lasers to harness the behavior of so-called ‘quantum gas’ to create a practical measurement device.
With all the talk about the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X and other ginormous phones, it's easy to forget that not everybody wants a big screen.Indeed, some users prefer the pocket-friendliness of a smaller model, to say nothing of the ease of operating it with one hand.Of course, this being Apple, smaller doesn't mean cheaper: The iPhone SE starts at $349.For a limited time, Walmart has the iPhone SE (32GB) for Straight Talk for $129 shipped (plus tax).That link will take you to the Space Gray version; it's also available in Rose Gold.Apple's entry-level model offers fast performance, good cameras, sufficient storage (32GB isn't a ton, but it's certainly better than 16GB) and something I consider essential: a headphone jack.
