The Chinese government on Friday introduced draft security regulations that industry watchers said could be used to tighten controls on US technology brought into the country in retaliation for recent US actions against Huawei.China’s Cyberspace Administration published the draft Cybersecurity Review Measures document for public consultation as part of a broader review of implementation of China’s Cyber Security Law, which took effect in June 2017.The measures would require operators of critical information infrastructure in the country, including major telecommunications network operators and financial services providers, to carry out a review of national security risks when purchasing products and services from abroad.They have been made available online for public consultation until 24 June.The draft regulation could be used to block purchases of US technology “on the basis of national security”, Samm Sacks, a cybersecurity policy and China digital economy fellow at New America, a US-based think tank, told the South China Morning Post.“This appears to be responding to new far-reaching US government powers introduced in the executive order.”

It'll probably be the brains of high-end smartphones, modest slab-tops, and other devices shipping early next year.In time for the Computex 2019 industry jamboree in Taiwan this coming week, Arm on Sunday spoke publicly about the A77, a follow-on from last year's Cortex-A76.As such, a single-core A77 is estimated by Arm to have about 20 per cent higher IPC (instructions per cycle) performance over an A76, when running both at 3GHz on 7nm.The new thing runs software faster than the slightly older thing, in other words.The A77 has, as far as we can tell, no scary surprises.It is an Armv8.2-compatible CPU core capable of running 32-bit and 64-bit application code, with 64KB L1 instruction and data caches, 256 or 512KB L2 caches, and up to 4MB of L3 cache.

Move over WWE because there’s a new wrestling outfit in town.The new promotion began when Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) held an independent professional wrestling event called All In last September.After All In’s success, Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan stepped in and together with Cody Rhodes, started an all new wrestling company on January 1 of this year.All Elite Wrestling’s inaugural event, Double or Nothing will take place this Saturday, May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.The Buy in pre-show, will begin at 7pm ET (4pm PT, 12 midnight BST).Before the main card kicks off, the hour long Buy In pre-show, which will be streamed live on AEW’s YouTube channel and on Bleacher Report Live, will see Kip Sabian take on Sammy Guevara as well as a 21-man Casino Battle Royale where the winner will earn a future world title shot.
Eon represents a long period of time, an homage to the timelessness and sophistication of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon.Cars as art isn’t a new concept, but it’s usually the preserve of exotics or classics.The large clamshell hood helps define the overall proportions of the car, while a strong character line that flows nose to tail along the side of the vehicle emphasizes its profile.The designers took their cues from nature, especially the shark, but also references from other Volkswagen group premium cars.While many other sedan manufacturers have changed focus to the crossover and SUV segment, Volkswagen still sees the sedan market as vital.But when talking price, it’s much closer to the Audi A5 or Kia Stinger GT.

Let me start by describing one of the first magic tricks I learned to perform when I was a kid.Here is what the audience sees: I reach into my pocket and reveal a jumbo-sized card depicting the four of spades on one side and the ace of spades on the other side.These Gestalt grouping principles are important in influencing how objects are perceived.In fact, this grouping principle is so strong that we even experience illusory lines or contours between the missing segments.In most cases, this is a useful strategy, as it prevents us from being confused by occlusions.However, when broken, this law leads to an illusion.

An essential fatty acid commonly found in Western diets may put pregnant women at risk for increased uterine contractions, inflammation, and more, according to a new study out of the Physiological Society.The potential changes caused by this fatty acid, the research reveals, may result in poor fetal development and increased risk of experiencing pregnancy complications.The study implicates omega 6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid in particular, as the potential cause for multiple problems during pregnancy.Unlike certain diets that are higher in omega 3 fatty acids, the typical Western diet is high in omega 6 fats, especially linoleic acid, which is found in the vegetable oils used for cooking, as well as in fried foods like potato chips that are cooked in these oils.Though omega 6 fatty acids are important for health, excessive consumption of them may lead to the development of inflammation and, over time, the health problems that result from chronic inflammation.A number of health authorities and past studies have pointed toward alternative diets high in omega 3 and low in omega 6 as ideal for overall health.

Using ground-penetrating radar, scientists detected a massive reservoir of frozen water sandwiched by layers of sand beneath the northern polar ice cap on Mars.“This was a surprise even for us,” Stefano Nerozzi, the lead author of the new paper and a PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, told Gizmodo in an email.The massive reservoir was detected within Mars’ northern cavi unit, a deposit of multiple layers of water ice mixed in with sand that formed over the course of hundreds of millions of years.The cavi unit rests about 2 kilometres (1.2 miles) beneath the Martian north pole, and prior to the new study, scientists reasoned it was primarily composed of sand dunes and contained less than 50 per cent water ice by volume.But now, radar scans from orbit suggests the cavi unit is packed with more water ice than sand, making it possibly the third-largest water reservoir on the Red Planet, followed only by the two polar ice caps.These new observations were made by the Shallow Radar, or SHARAD, instrument aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

A new study published this week is the latest to suggest that cannabis – or at least a key ingredient of it – might help people struggling with addiction.But there are plenty of other advertised health benefits, such as stress relief or preventing dementia, that have helped sprout a cottage industry around CBD.Some people are regularly using cannabis as a partial substitute for prescription opioid painkillers to manage their pain – a use that researchers are also starting to study in the lab.And research elsewhere, including by the current study’s authors, has shown that CBD can dampen the effects of withdrawal and craving in opioid-dependent animals that are taken off the drug.Then, over the course of a week, the volunteers had to watch three-minute long videos either containing nothing but neutral images, like nature sounds, or videos featuring drug paraphernalia like syringes or bags of powder meant to look like heroin.The test subjects were given CBD for three days, and they were tested for post-video craving and anxiety symptoms immediately after they took a pill, a day after a CBD session, and a week after the last session.

You've already got several options when it comes to linking an Android phone with a Chrome OS laptop, but it's not on the same scale as, say, Apple MacBooks and iPhones.Now it looks as though upgrades are in the pipeline.New code snippets reported by Chrome Story point towards Android and Chrome OS working more closely with each other in the future, though as yet there's no official word when these changes will arrive.Among the features potentially on the way is the ability to click a phone number on a Chromebook to instantly call it on Android, the option to share Wi-Fi passwords between devices, and a universal clipboard feature.Read our hands-on review of Google StadiaThose are all tricks that work between iOS and macOS and Google obviously wants its mobile and desktop operating systems working more closely together.

The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said the number of data breach reports it has received over the past year was four times higher than the year before, following the introduction of stricter data protection laws last May.The ICO said it had received some 14,072 breach notifications, up from 3,311 during the year ending April 2018.The GDPR rules introduced a year ago oblige organisations to file a report with data protection authorities within 72 hours when data is lost or leaked.The number of public complaints also doubled, from 21,000 to 41,054, indicating a higher level of public awareness of the importance of personal data.The ICO has yet to issue a fine under GDPR rules, but said the first penalties were coming.The GDPR allows authorities to impose fines of up to 20 million euros (£17.6m) or 4 percent of their gradual turnover, whichever is greater.

It’s been a week of ups and downs for NASA’s Moon landing program, as the agency has awarded its first contract for its Lunar Gateway while facing both financial and personnel setbacks.U.S. Vice President Mike Pence declared in March that NASA must meet this deadline by any means necessary.NASA is still in the planning stages, and is finding some difficulty in securing the funding for the ambitious mission.The power and propulsion element is an electric propulsion spacecraft and is the foundation of the Gateway.Astronauts would travel to this component of the Gateway and then to the Moon’s surface, then back to the Gateway and home, reports the Verge.“This system requires much less propellant than traditional chemical systems, which will allow the Gateway to move more mass around the Moon, like a human landing system and large modules for living and working in orbit,” Mike Barrett, power and propulsion element project manager at NASA’s Glenn Research Centre, said in a release from the space agency.
