Today is an inauspicious day, news footage from which will likely feature in the opening scenes of future history documentaries that are titled things like "A warning from history", but now one last attempt to reach out to the President-Elect is being made on probably the most important issue facing our species: Climate Change.Canadian rapper Baba Brinkman has produced the above song and video.Titled Erosion, this isn't just your standard rap about mom's spaghetti or whatever - it's actually been peer reviewed by Dr Gary Yohe, a Professor of Environmental Studies and recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his work with the IPCC.This isn't Brinkman's first attempt either: He has previously produced an entire off-Broadway show titled The Rap Guide to Climate Chaos and has previously tackled other scientific topics such as neuroscience and Darwinian evolution.Here's hoping that President Trump pays attention.

As evidence of the dangers of shifting FCC functions to the FTC, Wheeler pointed to a recent that could dramatically limit the FTC's ability to regulate ISPs.The FTC is statutorily forbidden from regulating "common carriers," a designation the FCC has long applied to phone companies like AT and Verizon and more recently to all ISPs.The FTC attempted to punish AT for throttling the Internet connections of customers with unlimited data plans before the FCC reclassified broadband as a common carrier service.The FTC assumed it could punish AT for activity that at the time was unrelated to its common carrier services, but judges ruled in favor of AT, saying that the carrier is exempt from FTC oversight entirely.

Samsung s Galaxy Note 7 was absolutely the most publicized example of faulty battery technology in the history of mobile phones, but exploding batteries aren t exclusively a Samsung problem.A quick Google search will produce news stories about defective batteries in phones from Apple, LG, Sony, Nokia, and every other major manufacturer.Lithium-ion batteries are simply not a perfectly reliable power source, and while the Note 7 was an extreme example, every manufacturer could benefit from batteries that are able to extinguish themselves if they get a bit too hot.Now, science has delivered exactly that.A new paper by Stanford University researchers, published in Science Advances, describes an innovative battery technology that includes a flame-retardant substance which allows the batteries to provide power as normal, but will spring into action if things get out of hand.A small amount of triphenyl phosphate is housed inside a thin shell inside of the battery itself.

Ett av it-säkerhetsvärldens vanligaste mantran är uppmaningen om att tänka till när man väljer lösenord, men det verkar som att vissa personer aldrig lär sig.Säkerhetsföretaget Keeper Security har nämligen gått igenom en stor mängd läckta lösenordsdatabaser från 2016 för att se vilket som var det vanligaste lösenordet, och tyvärr så vann det högst osäkra 123456.Det rapporterar sajten The Register.Fyra av topp 10 lösenorden på vår lista – och sju av topp 15 – är sex tecken eller kortare.Det är uppseendeväckande eftersom vi tidigare rapporterat om att dagens brute-forceprogram och hårdvara kan knäcka de lösenorden på sekunder.Sajt-operatörer som tillåter sådant bräckligt skydd är antingen hänsynslösa eller lata , skriver Keeper Security i en bloggpost.

Researchers don t recommend non-skippable ads as this would lead to a backlash and more ad blockers being installed.Younger consumers are likely to be one of the hardest groups to market to, with shorter attention spans and a higher propensity to avoid advertising, according to a new report.Generation Z – or those aged 16 to 19 – demand humorous commercials, like to co-create with brands and want to watch videos that are less than 10 seconds long, according to Kantar Millward Brown s AdReaction: Engaging Gen X, Y and Z, study, which interviewed nearly 24,000 people aged 16 to 49 in 39 countries.Most challenging of all, they are most likely to physically avoid ads, with 69 percent doing so, versus a global figure of 50 per cent.To reach them, brands would do best to use humour, rather than celebrities, in their advertising.Gen Z is three times more likely to be receptive to funny advertising, and they also want music and a good story to feature.

While Apple is unlikely to release its upcoming iPhone 8 until September, rumors about its upcoming flagship handset continue to stack up – and the latest one hints we might be in for a whole new look.Citing undisclosed sources, Taiwanese media DigiTimes reports the Cupertino behemoth has abandoned its go-to supplier Foxconn and placed orders for forged stainless steel phone frames with manufacturing partner Jabil.Last time Apple opted for stainless steel on its phones was the iPhone 4s, but the company has since shifted towards its favored aluminium as the preferred metal of choice for its flagship smartphone.While the news is consistent with previous rumors suggesting the iPhone 8 will don a stylish all-glass body, the report runs counter to previous speculation that the glass front and back will be held together by Foxconn-manufactured aluminium.Among other things, the next-gen iPhone is expected to be available in three different sizes – one of which will pack a boosted OLED screen, while the remaining two will sport a standard LCD display.It is also rumored to support wireless charging.

Tailwind on Tuesday expanded its portfolio of social media marketing offerings with the launch of an Instagram toolkit.With it, brands are able to bulk schedule posts on the popular photo-sharing service and glean analytics from them as well.Our mission is to make world-class marketing easy for everyone, company chief executive Daniel Maloney said in a statement.When we heard such overwhelming demand from our members for more effective and affordable Instagram marketing tools, it became clear we had a big opportunity to help.Tailwind for Instagram builds upon the existing scheduling tool, but also includes analytics, and provides push notifications that alerts users when it s time to publish something to Instagram — because of existing terms of service, there s currently no way to automate this process.Brands can either use Tailwind s service or a Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browser plugin to also repost images from any page to Instagram instantly, while also maintaining proper attribution.Based on internal testing, Tailwind claimed that its Instagram toolkit was 60 percent faster than the scheduling process that many marketers use today, involving emailing images to themselves and downloading them on their phone.

MoreThe logo of India's largest online marketplace Flipkart is seen on a building in Bengaluru, India, April 22, 2015.MUMBAI/BENGALURU Reuters - India's leading e-commerce company Flipkart shook up its top management for the second time in a year on Monday, naming a former executive of U.S. hedge fund Tiger Global Management, one of its biggest investors, as head of its core business.The shake-up follows a series of valuation writedowns for Flipkart, which has seen its lead in the online market in India eaten into by global e-commerce giant Amazon.Kalyan Krishnamurthy, a former managing director of Tiger Global who joined Flipkart last June, was named chief executive in a restructuring that moves current CEO Binny Bansal into the newly-minted, broader strategic role of group CEO.The highly competitive e-commerce market in India has driven players to offer steep discounts in a bid to snag market share.This in turn has raised concerns around profitability and dented valuations of home-grown names like Flipkart and Snapdeal.
