This week we heard about the news that is rocking the production of Justice League to its very core: Henry Cavill’s Mission Impossible-mandated mustache must be digitally edited out of scenes being filmed during reshoots.But, as this delightful video shows, couldn’t a movie be improved by extra moustaches?David Johns took to YouTube to give us the alternate Batman v Superman cut fans have been waiting for since the ‘ultimate’ version of the film hit shelves: one where every time Henry Cavill’s man of steel is on screen, he’s got a comedic, Poirot-esque moustache.Hell, he’s not even the only member of the DC trinity to get the ‘tache treatment, and it’s delightful:As many of you noted in the comments yesterday, it’d be amazing if the Justice League home release came with BTS versions of scenes where Cavill’s mustache hadn’t been edited out.If it looked anything like this video above, honestly it’d be one of the best special features for a movie in recent memory.

I imagine you spend quite a lot of your time doing just that – so here are 16 tips I’ve picked up along the way that show you how to type in iOS.When you want to type another currency symbol just press and hold the dollar key and you’ll see a bunch of alternatives you can select.That press and hold tip works on any character on your keyboard.Everyone should know that when you double-tap the Shift key you automatically enable Caps Lock.Don’t forget that if you tap and hold the period button a range of domain endings will be made available to you.The easiest way to switch between numerical and alphabetical character palettes: tap and hold the 123 button and you’ll see the keyboard swap across to its opposite set – slide your finger to the character you want to use and let go – it will be typed and the keyboard automatically returns to the default layout.

What would your house look like if you were the richest person in the world?A couple of pools, 10 kitchens, and a room dedicated to chocolate – you would probably run out of ideas before you ran out of money.Or, as you vie for that richest in the world title, you could look to the current richest man in the world, Bill Gates, for some home improvement inspiration.Boasting a net worth of over $90 billion, it should not be surprising that Bill Gates boasts a mega-mansion which casts every other mansion, home and shack into the shade.Nicknamed Xanadu 2.0 after the fictional home in Citizen Kane, the 66,000 sq.ft. Lake Washington home took seven years and over $60 million to build.

A group of European scientists have developed an algorithm that can assist recovering stroke patients "walk naturally with the harness".One of the results of a stroke is reduced muscular strength, which leads to difficulty in walking and loss of balance.The smart harness will have a 'robotic body weight supportive device' that will sense where support is needed and apply forces to stabilise the patient.The robot does this by "remastering the interplay between body mechanics and gravitational forces", researchers said.The assistance that this device aims to provide will be, "based on patient-specific motor deficits."It is designed to treat every patient based only on their gait and walking needs.

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 19, 2017 -- Researchers have recently gained advanced understanding of a variety of processes through the information-theoretic concept of transfer entropy.Today, scientists are able to explain coupled dynamical systems like functional connective patterns in the brain and climate patterns all around the globe.Researchers from New York University's department of mechanical and aerospace engineering in Brooklyn found this method to hold great promise for advancing our understanding of animal behavior, particularly related to predator-prey interactions.A research team led by New York University professor Maurizio Porfiri put forth a robotics-based study to control information flow in predator-prey interactions, as well as test the validity of transfer entropy when attempting to understand causal influences of the system.Specifically, the team studied the behavioral response of a zebrafish subjected to a fear-evoking robotic stimulus, modeled after the morpho-physiology of a red tiger oscar fish."Something which is really important from our community point of view is to be able to merge robotics and dynamical systems to address questions in animal behavior," Porfiri said.

Sky has had another TV broadband advert banned by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) following a complaint from rival Virgin Media.The advert featured the cast of The Secret Life of Pets, with one dog becoming frustrated with its broadband connectivity.Virgin Media challenged a claim in the ad that Sky broadband was "super reliable".The ASA drew on data from Ofcom to uphold the complaint.It concluded that the ad could "mislead consumers" because it implied that all of Sky's broadband packages were super-reliable."That is not the case for Sky's ADSL2+ package," the ASA said in its summing up.

CarriRo Delivery is a small rolling leveransrobot from the japanese ZMP Robotics, and it looks and works like some similar creations that we have written about in recent years.the Robot should be able to navigate on sidewalks autonomously and it should have the capacity to store the food for up to 60 persons.It has a maximum speed of approximately six kilometers in the hour and the little robotbilen is also equipped with floodlights so that it is possible to use in the evening/at night.the ZMP has now teamed up with the sushi-the company Ride On the Express that will use CarriRo to run out of sushi to some customers.When Japan's laws concerning autonomous vehicles in the general traffic so far do not allow these where will robotbilarna initially just to deliver sushi on private land.for example, There may be large företagscampus, universities and the like.

Netflix continues to think outside of the box and challenge its audience with honest, nuanced storiesThe autism spectrum encompasses a group of developmental “disorders” that can impair and individual’s ability to communicate effectively or interact naturally in social scenarios.Despite the fact that millions of Americans are “on the spectrum,” those with conditions like autism and Aspergers are often underrepresented in films and television shows.That said, the first trailer for Netflix’s Atypical teases a fictional journey into a teen boy’s decidedly atypical life experience.Released today, the two-minute spot follows Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year old autistic boy who — with a little encouragement from his therapist — decides to take a leap of faith and find himself a girlfriend.As you might expect, the trailer gets a bit sappy at times, but it packs plenty of the heartwarming awkwardness you’d expect from such a premise.

Under tisdagsmorgonen stod det klart att Schibsted säljer sitt ägande i söktjänsten Hitta.se.Beskedet kom i samma veva som den norska mediejätten presenterade sin rapport för det andra kvartalet.Det var 2011 som mediekoncernen köpte 70 procent av Servicefinder och slutligen förvärvade hela bolaget hösten 2016.En affär som dessvärre har kommit att bli ett sänke för Schibsted.Missnöjet håller i sig och i sin delårsrapport pekar mediekoncernen åter igen ut Servicefinder som boven för den långsamma tillväxten.Servicefinder ingår i affärsområdet Online Classifieds, där även Blocket och Byt Bil ingår.

Sophie Nightingale, PhD Student and lead author from the University of Warwick said: "Our study found that although people performed better than chance at detecting and locating image manipulations, they are far from perfect.This has serious implications because of the high-level of images, and possibly fake images, that people are exposed to on a daily basis through social networking sites, the internet and the media."The researchers set up an online test that used a bank of 40 images created from 10 original images sourced from Google Images.Six of the original images were subjected to five different types of manipulation, including physically implausible and physically plausible manipulations, to create 30 manipulated images.A mean 60% of images were correctly identified as being manipulated when participants were asked "Do you think this photo has been digitally altered?Of the people that answered "yes" to this question only a mean 45% of manipulations could be correctly located in the image when a grid overlay was placed on the image and participants were prompted to select the regions where a manipulation was present.

Not all smartphones are created equal, moreso smartphone markets.Some countries get the top of the line models while others have to settle for mid-range ones.If you are living in Europe and have been itching to get LG’s V series, you were pretty much out of luck.Times are changing, it seems.According to a tip, LG will be bringing it soon to be unveiled V30 to Europe, making it the first of its line to make it into the region.Samsung withheld the Galaxy Note 5 from Europe, saying the men in suits determined the productivity-oriented phablet won’t be popular there.

Oculus is apparently working on a new virtual reality headset which will be a wireless, standalone piece of hardware with no need for a PC or phone.The device will reportedly be pitched at a more palatable price than the Oculus Rift – $200 (about £150, AU$260) – with the launch slated for next year.According to a report in Bloomberg, Facebook (which owns Oculus) wants to produce a VR headset which sits in the middle ground between the cheap efforts that hook up to smartphones, and the expensive headsets that require a decently powerful PC to run them.The device is code-named 'Pacific' and will be powered by its own Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (of the type typically used in mobile phones), and it will put a firm emphasis on portability.Well, unlike the big players of the VR headset world, this effort won’t make use of positional tracking – i.e.tracking your movements spatially – and that’s obviously a sizable limitation in terms of immersion and playing games.

Tucked into the veritable treasure trove of new information about Black Panther that Marvel’s just unloaded in the run up to this year’s Comic-Con are a couple of interesting images of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan,) one of the film’s primary villains, that might reveal something interesting about his character.While Killmonger was featured prominently in the first Black Panther trailer, it was a bit difficult to see some of the of the more minute details that went into creating his look for the movie—particularly the ones on his skin.In a pair of new images over at Entertainment Weekly, you can clearly see that the skin beneath Killmonger’s neck is carefully dappled with patterned scarification.There are a number of African cultures spread across the continent that have traditionally used scarification and cicatrisation as a form of body art and Black Panther’s costume designer Ruth E. Carter has championed bringing as much real world African influence into the movie as possible.In Marvel’s comics, Killmonger gains enhanced strength and speed similar to the Black Panther’s by being exposed a synthetic version of the special heart-shaped herb that imbues people with royal Wakandan blood with abilities It’s possible that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s take on the character could gain powers in a similar fashion that leaves him with the signature scarring.But Killmonger’s scars could also be a subtle nod to another comic book villain—Victor Zsasz, a member of Batman’s rogues gallery.
