A scorned woman poured sulphuric acid over her ex-boyfriend leaving him so badly injured that he chose to end his life at a euthanasia clinic, a court has heard.The couple had been together for five years but had split up the month before and although Van Dongen was still supporting Wallace financially, he had started seeing another woman.In the hours before the attack, Van Dongen and Wallace had attempted to rekindle their romance but at 3am on September 23 2015, Wallace poured the acid over him, causing 25 per cent burns and devastating injuries, the court was told.She says it was Van Dongen who filled the glass with acid and tried to dupe her into drinking it along with medication she took in a bid to kill or injure her.Van Dongen was left paralysed and only able to move his tongue, and had to have his left leg amputated.Fifteen months after the attack, which occurred in the Westbury Park area of Bristol, Van Dongen applied for euthanasia in his native Belgium.

For car enthusiasts, the 1968 Ford Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in Bullitt represents everything that’s great about America.So it’s appropriate that this movie icon will be displayed on the National Mall among other American landmarks.Through April 23, the Bullitt Mustang will displayed in an illuminated glass case located between the National Art Gallery and the National Air & Space Museum.The car’s D.C. debut is part of the Historic Vehicle Association’s Cars at the Capital event, in which a different car is put on display about every week.Other cars in the rotation this year include the Ferrari 250GT California Spyder replica from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the 15 millionth Ford — a 1927 Model T.This Mustang is one of two used in the filming of Bullitt.

A security researcher has claimed it's possible to extract user information from Facebook's Login service, the tool that lets you sign into third-party sites with a Facebook ID.Readers will be familiar with Steven Englehardt (a Mozilla privacy engineer who pursues privacy research for his PhD at Princeton), whose work on browser fingerprinting led him to identifying a remarkable degree of privacy invasion by analytical scripts.In Englebardt's latest work, in partnership with Gunes Acar and Arvind Narayanan, the three explain that they identified seven sites accessing Facebook user data, and one site using Facebook's application to track users around the Web.For users, Facebook Login looks like a boon: they only need to use their Facebook password to log into multiple sites or apps.That, however, puts a very strong onus on Facebook to make sure the whole process is secure.What Englebardt discovered is simple: “when a user grants a website access to their social media profile, they are not only trusting that website, but also third parties embedded on that site.”

The Newspaper The New York Times writes today that the phone manufacturer Huawei has announced plans to leave the us market.leaving the united states due to the several times has been accused of having ties to the chinese state, which the US sees as a threat to security.Huawei dismissed last week five people in the united states, including the William B. Plummer, who has been a key contributor to convince US that their products do not have any security issues or extensions to the chinese government.That now he may end up can be interpreted to mean that Huawei has given up the fight to persuade the united states and withdraws.Via The New York Times

But today, we have many more candidates who have a chance at living the dream.They include esports athletes, cosplayers, influencers, YouTubers, livestreamers, modders, and many other people getting paid to play.The big question is whether game companies can create a long tail for these people who are inventing careers that didn’t exist five or ten years ago, so that more than just celebrities can cash in.We studied this idea in a panel moderated by Adam Sessler, cofounder of Spiketrap and one of the original influencers in the game business as the co-host of the TV show X-Play.The panelists included Jon “Neverdie” Jacobs, CEO of Neverdie Studios (and a man who bought and sold an island in the virtual world Rocktropia); Gio Hunt, executive vice president and executive producer of platform technology and experiences at Blizzard Entertainment; Philip Rosedale, founder and CEO of High Fidelity; Craig Donato, chief business officer at Roblox.Jacobs definitely believes that once you can use blockchain to trade assets between games, the market for players who can make a living playing games will skyrocket.

A team led by Rice University scientists used a unique combination of techniques to observe, for the first time, a condensed matter phenomenon about which others have only speculated.Results of the complicated combination of modeling and experimentation are the subject of a paper in Nature Photonics.The Bloch-Siegert shift, a theory born in the 1940s, is a quantum interaction in which counter-rotating fields are able to interact.These interactions have proven difficult to create without the unique tools assembled by the Rice-led team.Kono and his colleagues created the resonance frequency shift in a two-level electron system induced by coupling with an electromagnetic field inside a cavity even when the electrons and field are rotating in opposite directions - a truly surprising effect that occurs only in a regime where light and matter are mixed together to an extreme degree."Here we have a unique system that is predicted to go into a new ground state because of strong light-matter coupling.

Avengers: Infinity War is less than two weeks away, and with it should (hopefully) come some answers that we've been asking since the release of 2012's The Avengers.Others theorised that it might show up in Captain Marvel (not outside the realms of possibility), that it's in Wakanda (already debunked), or that it's lost in time and Thanos needs the time stone to retrieve it.But I have an alternate theory based on what we've seen so far.Turn away if you hate potential spoilers, seriously.It's worth mentioning before I get started that I'm basing most of this on a lot of assumptions.There's a lot we don't know about the film considering it won't be out for another two and a half weeks, and I'm trying to put a lot of pieces together based on information from trailers and other marketing materials.

Over the course of two days and 10 hours of testimony, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was grilled by members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives this week.and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who have come to call the proposal a kind of “privacy bill of rights.”In essence, the CONSENT Act would require companies to give users clear information about how their data will be used and would mandate that users be given the choice to opt into sharing their personal information instead of having to opt out.Beyond formal legislation proposed thus far, Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-CA) suggested the creation of a Digital Consumer Protection Agency that can spring into action to deal with situations like the Cambridge Analytica breach and other high-profile breaches that have occurred over the years.Ruiz suggests that such a body could oversee how consumer data is collected, shared, and used by companies and fight against things like identity theft, as well as the kinds of data misuse seen in the Cambridge Analytica affair.Ruiz countered that Facebook was aware of the data breach in 2015, took no action, and suffered no penalty from regulators.

On 16th January 2018, a bright flash lit up the sky over Michigan, accompanied by a loud boom.Much as it did when a similar meteor lit up the sky over Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013, the Michigan fireball caused a minor gold rush to the site, as people hunted for signs of the fresh meteorite.Originating as asteroids, and in rare cases even fragments ejected from other planets in our solar system, meteorites are pieces of rock and metal that survive the fiery journey through our atmosphere.With its potential for global travel and remote locations, there has recently been a certain Indiana Jones quality attached to the profession of meteorite hunting.Today, irons like the Sikhote-Alin meteorite, which fell in Russia in 1947, appear for sale the world over, often fashioned into jewelry.“The vast majority trade in the one to ten dollar per gram range,” collector Paul Swartz told Gizmodo, “[but] I’ve purchased them for less than three cents a gram.”

Ahead of the Zuckening on Tuesday afternoon, Twitter formally declared support for the Honest Ads Act, legislation crafted in the wake of the previous great social media scandal—Russian propagandists targeting American voters with fraudulent ads online during the 2016 presidential election.Twitter, which had previously announced plans to reign in political ads and label them clearly for users, today embraced the legislation that was introduced late last fall by Senators Mark Warner, Amy Klobuchar, and John McCain.The Honest Ads Act would require under law online platforms like Twitter and Facebook to include disclosures identifying the purchases of political ads, maintain a file of ads and candidates that can be accessed by the public, and overall improve the methods by which they police their platforms in regards to foreign interference.During hearing before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees on Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also reaffirmed Facebook’s commitment to helping pass the legislation.Twitter is pleased to support the Honest Ads Act.Back in the fall we indicated we supported proposals to increase transparency in political ads.

Malcolm Tucker, the foul-mouthed government Director of Communications in the BBC political sitcom ‘The Thick of It’, helped to popularise the word ‘omnishambles’ – a term for a situation of total disorder.Looking at the proposed new regulation that will force pornography websites to implement an age verification system or face hefty penalties, which has now been delayed until at least the end of the year, it’s hard not to think of what Tucker would make of it all.Part of the Digital Economy Act 2017 and initially due to become a reality this April, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has been forced to postpone as it attempts to iron out a raft of data protection vulnerabilities.But whilst the protection of children from online pornography is undoubtedly a valid concern, are the new rules going to improve the situation – or will it put the data of adults at risk, whilst failing to stop under-age viewers from accessing pornography?The Conservatives made age verification for online pornography a key part of its election pledge, vowing to introduce stringent checks to stop children’s exposure to harmful sexualised content online.Whilst everyone agrees that more could be done to protect children and vulnerable groups from harmful content, for many these new rules are simply a draconian step towards new levels of censorship that will never be achieved, without drastically changing the face of the internet.

Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test, potentially removing the need for millions of diabetics to frequently carry out the painful and unpopular tests.Readings can be taken every 10 to 15 minutes over several hours.Having established proof of the concept behind the device in a study published in Nature Nanotechnology, the research team from the University of Bath hopes that it can eventually become a low-cost, wearable sensor that sends regular, clinically relevant glucose measurements to the wearer's phone or smartwatch wirelessly, alerting them when they may need to take action.An important advantage of this device over others is that each miniature sensor of the array can operate on a small area over an individual hair follicle - this significantly reduces inter- and intra-skin variability in glucose extraction and increases the accuracy of the measurements taken such that calibration via a blood sample is not required.The monitor developed at Bath promises a truly calibration-free approach, an essential contribution in the fight to combat the ever-increasing global incidence of diabetes."We utilised graphene as one of the components as it brings important advantages: specifically, it is strong, conductive, flexible, and potentially low-cost and environmentally friendly.

From pipelines to tankers, oil spills and their impact on the environment are a source of concern.These disasters occur on a regular basis, leading to messy decontamination challenges that require massive investments of time and resources.But however widespread and serious the damage may be, the solution could be microscopic--Alcanivorax borkumensis--a bacterium that feeds on hydrocarbons.Professor Satinder Kaur Brar and her team at INRS have conducted laboratory tests that show the effectiveness of enzymes produced by the bacterium in degrading petroleum products in soil and water.Their results offer hope for a simple, effective, and eco-friendly method of decontaminating water and soil at oil sites.Research associate Dr.Tarek Rouissi poured over "technical data sheets" for many bacterial strains with the aim of finding the perfect candidate for a dirty job: cleaning up oil spills.
