Monet maat pyrkivät eroon fossiiilisia polttoaineita, erityisesti fossiilista dieseliä, käyttävistä autoista.Liiikenneministeri Anne Berner (kesk) totesi Talouselämän sähköpostihaastattelussa keskiviikkona Suomen tavoitteena olevan, että kaikki uudet henkilöautot voivat hyödyntää muita polttoaineita kuin fossiilista bensiiniä tai dieseliä vuonna 2030.Sen sijaan dieselautot, jotka on tyyppihyväksytty uusiutuvan dieselin käytölle, on tarkoitus pitää käytössä.Bernerin mukaan valmisteilla ei ole suoranaisia rajoituksia autojen myyntiin."Tällä hetkellä ei hallituksen suunnitelmissa ole asettaa myyntikieltoja vaan hyödyntää muita keinoja muutoksen aikaan saamiseksi.Täyskielto on hyvin voimakas toimenpide ja pitäisinkin tavoiteltavana sitä, että suotuisa kehitys saataisiin aikaan muilla keinoin, kuten toimintaympäristön muutoksilla tai mahdollisella taloudellisilla (muun muassa verotus, tuet, vapautus ruuhkamaksuista) ja toiminnallisilla (muun muassa parkkipaikat) eduilla", Berner totesi vastauksessaan.

This spring, as part of their coursework, four Stanford University students found themselves in Coronado, California, doing pushups on the beach and charging into a 61-degree surf while overseen by Navy SEAL trainers.They performed this extraordinary homework to better understand the process of inculcating recruits into the elite corps of military frogmen and women.The end result of their (literal) immersion was a solution to an inefficiency in evaluating prospective SEALS: the time-consuming process of analyzing the mountains of comments made about each candidate.Their reward was thanks from a grateful military establishment—and college credit.But in a larger sense, the students were part of their instructor’s master plan to reintroduce the concept of public service to higher education’s best and brightest.And to make colleges once again an important cog in the military’s machine.

For a few hours on Aug. 21, 2017, the moon will move in front of the sun and cast its shadow over the United States.Technically, it will be visible across the entire country, but in most areas, the moon won’t block enough of the sun to really dim its light, and you’ll need special equipment to watch the moon’s march across the disc.“If you really want to see the eclipse, you’ve got to get on the path.”He means the path of totality: a 60- to 70-mile-wide ribbon of territory from Oregon through South Carolina where the moon will completely cover the sun in a total solar eclipse.Hundreds of small municipalities will be in the crosshairs of what could be an enormous one-day population boom, creating significant challenges for traffic management, sanitation and emergency services.So, many communities near the center of the path are planning for huge crowds, leaning on ad hoc networks that can include town officials, volunteers, emergency response agencies, astronomers, local law enforcement and state tourism divisions, among others.
Lenovo has been toying with the idea of foldable displays for some time now, showcasing a number of concept products that can be bent into different form factors at its various conventions in recent months.None of those gadgets are really close to becoming commercially available, but the Chinese tech firm seems to be making progress on some of them either way.At its Lenovo Tech World event last week, for instance, the company showcased a functional version of the Folio, a concept device it first unveiled last year.The Folio is a 7.8-inch Android tablet with a hinge in its middle that allows the whole thing to fold into a 5.5-inch, dual-screen smartphone-style device.This video from YouTube user Kim Poh Liaw gets at the idea.You can see how the the app icons and navigation buttons adapt to the different form factors on the fly, and how one of the screens turns into a sort of viewfinder when you fold the device and open the camera app:
The government of the UK said on Saturday all drones larger than 250 grams will need to be registered with the Department of Transport following a report by aviation authorities drones as small as 400 grams could damage helicopter windshields.Drone owners will also be required to pass a “safety awareness test” demonstrating they understand UK rules on safety and privacy.Aviation Minister Lord Martin Callanan said in a statement on the government’s web site that he recognised the usefulness of drones, but “Like all technology, drones too can be misused.By registering drones, introducing safety awareness tests to educate users we can reduce the inadvertent breaching of airspace restrictions to protect the public.”In an interview with BBC News, Callanan pre-emptively defended himself against the idea he was a big British buzzkill, saying the new rules are “not about stopping people having fun.” He may have a point: In April 2017, two orb-shaped drones were reported to have flown close enough to an Airbus A320 jet approaching Heathrow Airport that British authorities deemed the incident a serious collision risk.“Registration has its place,” University of Kent law professor Dr. Alan McKenna told BBC News.

Luckily, Clarke the robot is here to help.Luckily, while humans might not be the best at practicing the Three R’s (reduce, reuse, and recycle, of course), another “R” is here to save us.Developed by AMP Robotics, this robot makes use of artificial intelligence to recognize and sort various food and beverage containers.As it stands, Clarke has already been deployed in a municipal waste facility in Denver, Colorado, where it helps out with the trash-sorting system.Using a visible-light camera, it can spot milk, juice, and food cartons, and pull them out using its robotic arm and suction cups.With a reliable rate of 60 items a minute, Clarke picks up recyclable waste with 90-percent accuracy, and is about 50 percent faster than a human would be at doing the same job.
The U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday it had shut down the dark web marketplace AlphaBay, working with international partners to knock offline the site accused of allowing a global trade in drugs, firearms, computer hacking tools and other illicit goods.Authorities said the law enforcement action was one of the largest ever taken against criminals on the dark web, part of the internet that is accessible only through certain software and typically used anonymously.AlphaBay allowed users to sell and buy opioids, including fentanyl and heroin, contributing to a rising drug epidemic in the United States, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news briefing in Washington, D.C. to announce the action.“This is likely one of the most important criminal investigations of the year – taking down the largest dark net marketplace in history.The move struck a blow to an international drug trade that has increasingly moved online in recent years, though some experts thought its impact would be limited.“The takedown of AlphaBay is significant, but it’s a bit of a whac-a-mole,” said Frank Cilluffo, director of the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University.
Bidshahri had moved to the United States three years earlier to study neuroscience, and was just months away from graduation, after which she wanted to launch her online education startup in the Bay Area.She planned to take advantage of something called the International Entrepreneur Rule, which would give immigrant founders who raise at least $250,000 in funding temporary legal status in the United States while they build their businesses.Finalized in the last days of President Obama's tenure in office, it was set to go into effect this July, just months after she received her diploma.As Bidshahri’s story illustrates, it already is.But the truth is that it’s not small businesses but young businesses that are creating the most jobs.The foundation has also found that roughly a quarter of tech and engineering firms are founded by immigrants, and employ an average of 21.37 people per company.

IBM's trying to transform itself into a cloud company, but its traditional businesses were a drag in the second quarter.The company's earnings dropped 7% and its overall sales fell 5% in the period, as revenue declined in all five of IBM's operating segments.The results were a mixed bag compared with Wall Street expectations — IBM's per-share earnings were actually much better than expected.But its revenue fell shy of analysts' estimates.In recent trading, IBM's shares were down $3.10, or 2%, to $150.90.The tech giant tried to put a positive spin on the results, touting its cloud business.
Amazon has several deals on APC back-up power supplies and surge protectors right now, and the best of them is the APC Back-UPS Connect for $55.That’s its lowest price yet on the site, and the first real discount we’ve seen in the last six months.The Back-UPS Connect is an interesting device as it can act as a mobile power pack, or you can slap it in the dock for a 50 watt UPS.When in mobile mode, it has enough power to charge a smart phone approximately five times.When docked, the UPS supplies about 2.5 hours of power for a home network.(That’s not a ton of time, but it’s fine for a sub-$60 UPS.
How would you feel about the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus retaining the very same displays found on their predecessors?Although Samsung hasn’t even unveiled the Galaxy Note 8 yet, we’re already starting to see rumors and reports regarding next year’s Galaxy S devices, presumably called the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.According to The Bell, the Galaxy S9 duo’s displays might look very familiar: citing unnamed industry sources, it claims that Samsung has already placed display orders for next year’s flagships, and based on the specifications that were allegedly submitted to Samsung Display, the screen sizes of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus might be the same as those of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.The online publication purports that the Galaxy S9 will come with a 5.77-inch screen whereas its bigger sibling will sport a larger 6.22-inch display.It adds that they will have rounded corners, making them identical to this year’s Infinity Displays found on the Galaxy S8 duo.As expected, the South Korean conglomerate will reportedly re-attempt to embed the fingerprint scanner under the display, a feature that was missing from the Galaxy S8 due to technical difficulties.
Back in May, Microsoft announced that Windows Server would be joining the Windows Insider Program.Late last night, the first preview release of Windows Server was published.The biggest areas of improvement in the new build are around virtualization and containers.The preview allows exposing more of the underlying hardware capabilities to virtual machines, with support for virtualized non-volatile memory and virtualized power/battery status.For both containers and virtual machines, networking capabilities have been enhanced to enable a wider range of virtual network capabilities with greater performance.The focus on containerization has also seen the Nano Server deployment of Windows Server change.

When it comes to VR, customers have options on both the high-end and the low-end, but nothing that’s firmly in the mid-range.If you want an introduction to virtual reality, Samsung’s Gear VR makes a good jumping off point, as all you need is a Samsung phone to make it work.On the other side of the coin, HTC and Oculus have the high-end on lock down with headsets that cost hundreds of dollars and require a beefy PC to work.What about everyone else who may want a reasonably powerful headset that doesn’t require a PC?Oculus may be gearing up to unveil a headset aimed at that very segment.According to a new report from Bloomberg, Oculus and parent company Facebook have a standalone VR headset in the works.
