The Netherlands has opened the world's first 3D-printed concrete bridge for use mainly by cyclists.Researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology achieved the feat using pre-stressed, reinforced concrete, reports the Guardian."It was rolled out by a printer, which makes it unique," said Theo Salet from the university.The 8m-long bridge spans a water-filled ditch in the town of Gemert and connects two roads.It is reportedly strong enough to take the weight of 40 trucks, and was tested for up to two tonnes.The project was implemented in collaboration with BAM Infra Construction Company.

Kolmas vuosineljännes näyttää tuloslukujen valossa hyvältä.Operaattorit ovat ottaneet tiukasti mittaa toisistaan heinä–syyskuussa.Elisan, Telian ja DNA:n keskinäisen kilpailun verisyys paljastuu Elisan keskiviikkona julkaisemasta osavuosiraportista, josta käy ilmi tavanomaista korkeampi asiakkaiden vaihtuvuus.Kolmannella kvartaalilla vaihtuvuutta kuvaava prosenttiluku kohosi 23,3:een, kun se aiemmin oli vain 18,00.Elisan asiakkaista vaihtuu vuositasolla melkein joka neljäs.Uusi luku on silmiinpistävän korkea ja kertoo siitä, että operaattorit kampanjoivat aggressiivisesti ja vievät asiakkaita toinen toisiltaan.

Editor’s note: This was contributed by Miranda Tan CEO and founder of Robin8 , China’s leading influencer marketplace powered by big data and AI.Robin8 has profiled over 30 million influencers across 12 social platforms in China.Robin8 helps brands find the best influencers for their campaign and provides end-to-end performance attribution.As media results become more decentralized, every person becomes a source of traffic.Brands generally devote a significant portion of their online marketing budget to traditional KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders) – that is, the social media celebrity with hundreds of thousands or millions of followers.But research from social scientists and an analysis of the actual ROI on completed campaigns in China shows that brands might get a better ROI by including micro-influencers in their spending.

It’s been said that you shouldn’t ever read the comments on web articles.So, you certainly shouldn’t try to use them as proof of Apple’s doom.Writing for The Boy Genius Report, Zach Epstein goes to the closest tainted well to gather a bucket of Apple problems.“Uh oh: It looks like the iPhone X’s sky-high price is actually scaring away Apple fans.” (Tip o’ the antlers to 5cat.)When Apple first unveiled the iPhone X during last month’s big press conference, fans around the world immediately fell in love.Epstein buys his overblown superlatives at Super Sam’s Scratch-n-Dent Superlative Shack.

An exploit called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attack, hits on a weakness in the code behind WPA2, a protocol that makes wireless connections work in practically every device.It was discovered by computer security academic Mathy Vanhoef and could allow hackers to eavesdrop on your network traffic, ZDNet reported on Monday.Here's a list of how companies and device makers have responded to KRACK so far.We updated to protect customers as soon as possible, but as a responsible industry partner, we withheld disclosure until other vendors could develop and release updates.""Belkin Linksys, and Wemo are aware of the WPA vulnerability.Also know that we are committed to putting the customer first and are planning to post instructions on our security advisory page on what customers can do to update their products, if and when required."

This is a significant risk for HR professionals in particular, who tend to be less familiar with the underlying mechanics of these tools than tech professionals are.Or could you solve the problem with existing tech and/or a different approach to the work you’re already doing?If you decide you do indeed need some slick new AI-flavored tech, it’s critical you educate yourself on the strengths and weaknesses of AI.Invite them to participate in reviewing the tools you’re considering.And algorithms aren’t equally good at solving them, so make sure the problem you’ve got is suitable for AI.Problems with extreme edge cases, or where the underlying data set is strongly biased (there are ways to overcome this, however – see below).

When it first came into fruition all those years ago, The Pirate Bay had a .org domain name.15 years later and the site has burned its way through dozens of domains as it fought a game of whack-a-mole with rights holders attempting to have the site shut down.One of the most famous, and long-lasting domains was thepiratebay.se, though now that era is coming to an end.Thepiratebay.se expired last week, has been locked by the Swedish Supreme Court after being confiscated and forfeited to the Swedish government in May.Essentially this means that the people running The Pirate Bay can't renew or update the domain.It also means that it can't be purchased by anyone else.

Video: A guide to Raspberry Pi in 60 secondsIn my previous post, I wrote about assembling and using the Farnell element 14 Pi-Desktop kit.I limited that post to the basic installation, configuration and use of the Pi-Desktop enclosure itself.Now I am going to look at one of the optional expansion possibilities of that kit, adding an mSATA SSD (Solid State Disk).The first thing to consider, though, is why you would want to do this.There are three obvious reasons:

Hackers continue to target the SWIFT bank messaging system, though security controls instituted after last year's $81 million heist at Bangladesh's central bank have helped thwart many of those attempts, a senior SWIFT official told Reuters.From the report: "Attempts continue," said Stephen Gilderdale, head of SWIFT's Customer Security Programme, in a phone interview."That is what we expected.We didn't expect the adversaries to suddenly disappear."SWIFT spokeswoman Natasha de Teran told Reuters that the attackers had attempted to hack into computers that banks use to access the organization's proprietary network, then create fraudulent messages to send over the SWIFT system."We have no indication that our network and core messaging services have been compromised," she said.

Of course Apple CEO Tim Cook is already using the iPhone X, the most advanced iPhone that won't hit stores until November 3.Students saw it slip out of his pocket during a public question-and-answer session earlier this week at Oxford University.For nearly the entire speech, the unreleased device edged out more and more until it completely fell out of his pocket and onto the couch.You can see him quickly check his notifications — perhaps unlocking the phone with Face ID — before placing the phone upside down.The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen, but in the hand, it should feel closer to the normal-sized iPhones, as opposed to the larger Plus models, so it's not humongous.It also sports a back casing made from glass, which should help it feel less slippery.

It’s remarkably easy for employees to feel disconnected from the company they work for.Hard work might be praised by supervisors or team leads, but that work can get lost in the noise of the daily grind.To find out how to best use that information to encourage engagement, I asked members of Young Entrepreneur Council this question:What’s one way your team uses data as a team engagement tool?The data collected helps point out issues and provides encouragement that we’re on the right track.– Jared Brown, Hubstaff Talent

A new study from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) quantifies how much charging infrastructure would be needed in the United States to support various market growth scenarios for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).Sales of PEVs--which include plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and all-electric vehicles (EVs)--have surged recently.Most PEV charging occurs at home, but widespread PEV adoption would require the development of a national network of non-residential charging stations.Strategically installing these stations early would maximize their economic viability while enabling efficient network growth as the PEV market matures."The potential number, capacity, and location of charging stations needed to enable broad PEV adoption over the coming decades hinge on a variety of variables," said Eric Wood, lead author of the National Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure AnalysisPDF.NREL analyzed PEV charging requirements within urban and rural communities and along interstate corridors.

Last month, T-Mobile debuted a new perk for its customers: a free standard Netflix subscription.It’s not the best offer in the world, since it requires multiple lines on the account to work, but for anyone who qualifies it’s difficult to turn down free stuff.Less than a month after T-Mobile announced Netflix On Us, the streaming company turned around and hiked prices on its cheapest plans.Luckily for T-Mobile subscribers, your cell carrier is picking up the tab.T-Mobile support confirmed that the price hike is being fully covered by T-Mobile’s offer.It will continue to pay for one standard subscription, which now costs $10.99 rather than $9.99.

Chuwi’s SurBook began its life as an Indiegogo campaign, pitched as an affordable 2-in-1 Intel-based PC tablet which looked like an almost exact replica of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 – but without the hefty price tag.Online Chinese retailer, Gearbest, sent us the sample and sells the Chuwi SurBook for just under £340 (around $450) at the time of writing (for the 64GB version).Note that, while this price includes delivery, it is exclusive of any taxes that may be levied by HMRC or the courier companies on behalf of the vendor.The screen, which sports a 3:2 aspect ratio, is surrounded by a bezel with a width varying between 15mm and 18mm; thin enough to be almost inconspicuous.Four ports (two USB Type-A, an audio jack and one USB Type-C port) are located on the right.Ports: 2 x USB Type-A, 1 x USB Type-C, audio jack

The laser is being developed to concentrate on missiles and will be designed to destroy them with a single shot.Lockheed Martin has been tasked by the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to help create a laser-based defence system to counter enemy ballistic missiles as soon as they are launched.Lockheed Martin entered a contract last week worth $9.4m (£7.13m) to develop this system for the MDA.According to a report in militaryaerospace.com, the contract was for the first phase of the Low Power Laser Demonstrator (LPLD) project.Only last month, it released a video of their ATHENA laser weapon system taking down five airborne UAVs.The first phase of the project will involve the low power prototype maintain beam stability at a long range and the ability to stay on a target the size of a ballistic missile, says the report.

" tickets are going to be a hot commodity Monday night, so hot that some theaters might accidentally put them on sale early.CNET found that the Showcase Cinemas mobile app, available on iOS and Android, briefly allowed for ticket purchases Monday for the movie -- hours before the film's next trailer is supposed to debut.We got a tip about the app working, then independently verified it for ourselves on both iOS and Android.However, as of 12:15 p.m. PT, the app appears to have suspended ticket sales.Before that shutdown, anyone hoping to grab a ticket could do so by downloading the app, picking a theater, scrolling to one of the December dates following the movie's debut, then selecting a showtime and making a purchase.Showcase Cinemas locations are mainly located on the east coast of the US, so this early release was far from a major nationwide hiccup.
