Competition for dwindling water supplies from a mountain range in Central Asia could erupt into regional conflict, jeopardising Beijing s plans to revive trade along the ancient Silk Road, Chinese researchers have warned.Global warming and retreating glaciers in the Tianshan range, the water tower of the region, have raised the spectre of water shortages that will affect the relationship between countries in Central Asia and the construction of the Silk Road economic belt , the researchers warned in a report on the Chinese Academy of Sciences website.The Silk Road economic belt is part of Beijing s One Belt, One Road trade initiative to increase connectivity and cooperation between China and countries on the ancient Silk Road from Central Asia to Europe.About 2,500km long and up to 350km wide, the range winds through numerous countries including Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and the Xinjiang region in China.Its seasonal snowmelt contributes most of the water for the majority of rivers in Central Asia.But over the past decade, the range has been losing its total water storage at a rate of about 223 million cubic metres per year, according to the research led by Professor Chen Yaning from the academy s Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography in Urumqi.

The Panasonic G85 takes the already amazing Panasonic G7 and brings it to the next level by adding 5 axis image stabilization, a weather resistant magnesium alloy body, and some new hardware changes to the mix.But these new features come at a higher price so let s see if this mirrorless camera is up to challenging some amazing DSLRs from Canon & Nikon as well as the mirrorless Sony A6300.Add to that an amazing flip out touch screen, all the major ports, great battery life, and the G85 seems like a winner.The mirrorless design keeps things fairly compact without ruining ergonomics and limiting controls and the G85 uses a new shutter mechanism for quieter shooting with electronic first curtain and a full silent mode.When paired with the sensors lack of an AA filter and the new 5 axis image stabilization system, the results in very sharp images and video.The sensor remains unchanged and that is mostly fine as it is one of the better micro 4/3 cameras on the market.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles FCA is looking to change your perception of where cars are heading with the Chrysler Portal, an all-electric, autonomous concept unveiled at the big CES 2017 tech expo.The Portal is essentially the minivan of the future, "created by millennials for millennials," a phrase that usually makes us roll our eyes but one that FCA is banking the car's eventual success on.Taking the wants and needs of this generation into consideration, the Portal is designed to be eco-friendly, adapt to have enough space for families and be filled to the brim with tech, including an in-car wireless network to meet the ever-present need to connect with friends via social media.FCA describes the Portal as creating a "third space", somewhere between work and home where passengers can relax.While not a car that will drive by itself in any condition, the Portal has a semi-autonomous mode and can be upgraded to Level Four autonomous driving if the owner wishes.Level 4 essentially allows for the car to be in complete control in ideal driving conditions.

Many sports car makers are going to hybrid drivetrains not so much for fuel economy, but to improve performance in many cases.The hybrid drivetrain allows for sports cars to be tuned with an electric assist for low end performance while the engine can be tuned to high-end performance.Lamborghini has stayed away from this trend for the most part and confirmation has been made that the coming Urus SUV will be the only plug-in hybrid in the Lamborghini line.The Urus will be the first SUV from Lambo since the chunky cool LM002 departed back in 1993.The car is expected to debut and go on sale in 2018 and will share a platform with the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga.Lambo plans to fit the Urus with a fancy 48V-powered active anti-roll suspension.
LAKE FOREST, Calif.– BUSINESS WIRE –December 30, 2016– NaviGate Cardiac Structures Inc. NCSI announced today that a novel valved stent that can capture the enlarged annulus in patients suffering from functional tricuspid regurgitation FTR was implanted in a patient presenting with massive incompetence of the tricuspid valve.The patient, a 64-year-old female with an extensive history of severe tricuspid regurgitation TR 4 that invariably results in right heart failure RHF , a lethal condition, was successfully treated with the GATE tricuspid Atrioventricular Valved Stent AVS from NCSI.The cardiac team from the Cleveland Clinic, recognized as the number-one cardiac medicine center in the USA for 22 consecutive years, implanted the AVS with catheter-guided technique under a compassionate plea from the patient.After the implantation, the valve demonstrated excellent valvular function, indicating correction of the massive regurgitation problem.The hope is to provide a device that is able to capture the diseased tricuspid valve annulus, which has been enlarged inordinately by the ravages of functional tricuspid regurgitation, thus causing a reverse flow of venous blood from the right heart that should go to the lungs, said Cleveland Clinic cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Jose L. Navia, a member of NaviGate s scientific advisory board and company shareholder.This patient s annulus measured 49.7 millimeters in diameter, and there are currently no valved stents that can secure such a dimension without extending into any of the chambers and still provide valvular function, yet there are millions of patients in the USA and worldwide presenting with this problem, said Dr. Samir Kapadia, Cleveland Clinic interventional cardiologist.

Ett starkt lösenord räcker inte alltid för att skydda sina användaruppgifter online, för blir sajten hackad kan informationen hamna på vift ändå.Här är de tio största stölderna av användaruppgifter 2016, och då det gäller 2016 räknar vi inte in hacken mot Yahoo eller Myspace, då de dataintrången skedde innan 2016.Enligt hackern själv tog det tre veckor att plocka ut uppgifterna som ska ha varit helt okrypterade.Samma hacker ska även ha hackat forumet till datorspelet Dota 2 samma månad, och där kommit över 2 miljoner användarkonton.I februari skedde ett hack mot Leet, en molntjänst som låter sina användare lägga upp servrar till mobilversionen av spelet Minecraft.Förövaren ska ha kommit över 5 miljoner konton, som bland annat innehöll information om IP-nummer, lösenord och e-postadresser.
