Yesterday, Google was awarded a patent that proposes placing a strong adhesive on the hood of its autonomous cars.This way, pedestrians or cyclists who happen to find themselves being struck by a Googlemobile would be protected from what s called secondary impact.The patent was filed back in 2014 and seems to be designed as a temporary solution to keep the humans around the self-driving cars safe as autonomous technology improves:While such systems are being developed, it must be acknowledged that, on occasion, collisions between a vehicle and a pedestrian still occur.Such safety mechanisms may become unnecessary as accident-avoidance technology is being further developed, but at present it is desirable to provide vehicles with pedestrian safety mechanisms.As for what kind of glue Google is planning to smear across its hoods, it s described in the patent as having some kind of eggshell -like coating over the main adhesive layer so the car doesn t drive around scooping up insects and other small animals like actual flypaper.Nissan s pop up engine hood uses tiny explosives to slightly raise the hood of the vehicle once it senses an impact to help stop pedestrians from hitting their heads.
In a recent and more rigorous experiment, a group of researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, University of Michigan and Google, dropped nearly 300 USB thumb drives around six campus locations and found that at least 45 percent of them were plugged into a computer and perused by the person who found them.While modern Windows and Mac systems no longer run programs on a USB stick by default, other attacks, such as BadUSB, can make a USB drive appear to be something else, such as keyboard, and then use that access to take malicious actions.When the company finds untrusted USB drives, it can test them, said Chris Novak, a director with the firm s RISK team, a computer investigations group.We often do executive protection, where, when executives go overseas or to a big conference, we give them temporary equipment, and if something happens, we get it back.Playing the movie trailer on the drive installed malware on the victim s computer, enabling the attacker to steal an unreleased movie.The fact that users plug such storage devices into corporate computers is a nightmare for IT security professionals, to the degree that they sometimes—and somewhat controversially—block USB ports on highly sensitive computers by gluing them closed with epoxy.
Spraying the wheat crops with pesticide could be a thing of the past if EU gets current with scienceIn a rebuke to the EU, and environmental activists worldwide, the biggest scientific metastudy yet conducted of genetically modified foods concludes they re good for human health and the environment.The National Academics of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, an advisory body of scientists, finds no evidence of risks over conventional crops, and huge benefits in the shape of increased yields in poor countries, and healthier crops.More resilient GM foods reduce reliance on pesticides.Since then, it s merely tried to strangle them by heavy regulation, giving member states the right to impose their own obstacles in the shape of temporary bans so much for single market harmonisation .Paul Dacre s Frankenfoods campaign, and the media s promotion of work by the now discredited scientist Árpád Pusztai were instrumental in fuelling revulsion against GM crops.Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore now promotes vitamin A-fortified blindness-fighting Golden Rice, which Western NGOs are attempting to restrict in the countries that most need it.

The car will drive around the city collecting mapping data and testing out its self-driving technology, Uber said in a blog post.Accurate mapping data is crucial for self-driving cars because the cars themselves don't have the ability and sophistication to figure out their precise location unaided.The tests will be one of the most visible signs of the research and development going on at the company's Advanced Technologies Center, a partnership with Carnegie Mellon University that was announced in 2015.Research at the center is still in its early days, but the company's goal is to take the technology to a level where it could be used in a commercial transportation service.On private testing areas, cars can be challenged with situations that would be dangerous on public streets, but it's difficult to generate the unpredictable nature of streets in a major city.A researcher will be behind the wheel at all times, ready to take over from the car's computer should things appear that they are going wrong -- that's not just a safety move but also the law.
Bell ASU , and M. Wolff Space Science Institute Mars is nearing its closest approach to us in a decade, so Hubble took that opportunity to capture a brand new up-close look at the red planet.The planetary portrait reveals the Martian surface so closely that researchers were able to make out details just 20 miles across.Particularly notable were changes in the observed ice on Mars surface and large forming cloud banks, like that big blue glow drifting over the right middle section of the plant.What we re catching here is a detailed look at how the changing of the seasons looks on Mars.In fact, knowing about those seasons was key to the recent discovery water s existence on the planet.Of particular note is a rapid retreat of the planet s polar ice cap in its northern hemisphere, due to the Martian summer.

Solomon Hykes, founder of Docker, details his firm s open-source experience and releases new tools at the OSCON conferenceSolomon Hykes, founder of Docker Inc., is a familiar name in the world of open source today, but he wasn t always an open-source developer.Docker Inc. s core vision is to help build everything that is needed to make the Internet programmable, in a scalable and sustainable way, said Hykes.Approximately 2,000 developers have contributed to Docker s open-source projects and across all the projects, as hosted on Github, 18,000 issues have been opened, Hykes said.In open source, a patch is a code contribution of sorts, providing either a fix for an existing feature or a new feature to a project.The first key lesson that Hykes learned is that saying no is temporary, but saying yes is forever.If you do have specific insight and a specific focus, open source will really multiply it, and we use that a lot.

Snowden appeared via satellite link in the Australian city of Melbourne last night, live from Russia where he resides under temporary asylum after leaking classified documents that revealed the extent of the modern global western government intelligence apparatus.The AFP Friday raided the office of Labor power-broker and former comms minister Stephen Conroy and the home of a staffer of shadow communications minister Jason Clare."Snowden cites the nation's "drag net" data retention and anti-whistleblower laws in which citizen metadata is retained for two years, and those who leak national security documents may be imprisoned.Former Pentagon investigator John Crane has today told The Guardian how the agency became a trap for whistleblowers, including forerunner NSA leaker Thomas Drake."If someone is saying I don't care about the right to privacy because I've got nothing to hide' that's no different to saying 'I don't care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say'," Snowden says.Snowden also spoke of the power of metadata, suggesting it is more valuable than content because it provides the investigator with similar intelligence while often foregoing the need to acquire warrants.
Security consultant Arne Swinnen says Instagram has shuttered brute force authentication holes that allowed hijacking of some 20 million accounts.The NVISO infosec man says an absent authentication control coupled with an insecure direct object reference vulnerability meant attackers could commandeer some four percent of accounts held in a temporary lock state.Instagram owner Facebook paid Swinnen @arneswinnen $US5000 for reporting the holes, slinging a patch within 10 days of the disclosure earlier this month.Of those tested he found some 39,000 accounts could be accessed by changing the associated account phone number, a feat which also exposed a user's phone digits as it was pre-filled into the form."This case was the most troublesome, as an attacker could on one hand gather sensitive user information pre-filled phone numbers and on the other hand simply update the phone number linked to the victim Instagram account," Swinnen says.Swinnen says quick manual checks found many of those phone number -exposed Instagram accounts were "mostly human" that had been inactive for a couple of weeks with a "good amount" of followers.
The temporary establishment will let potential customers view a demo of the company's app, create a sample investment portfolio, and consult with a financial advisor.The store will also entice customers with free events such as wine tastings, coding classes for children, and breakfast sessions with financial news reviews.The pop-up shop opened on May 20 and will remain open until July 6 in Milan, at which point it will move to London.Robo-advisors must scale in order to succeed because their business models depend on working with a significant number of assets.To compensate for this, robo-advisors are bringing in new customers through partnerships.U.S. firm SigFig, for example, has partnered with multiple legacy wealth managers and now claims that it has no acquisition costs whatsoever.The rise of robo-advisors shows that we ve entered the most profound era of change for financial services companies since the 1970s brought us index mutual funds, discount brokers and ATMs.No firm is immune from the coming disruption and every company must have a strategy to harness the powerful advantages of the new fintech revolution.The battle already underway will create surprising winners and stunned losers among some of the most powerful names in the financial world: The most contentious conflicts and partnerships will be between startups that are completely reengineering decades-old practices, traditional power players who are furiously trying to adapt with their own innovations, and total disruption of established technology & processes:Traditional Retail Banks vs. Online-Only Banks: Traditional retail banks provide a valuable service, but online-only banks can offer many of the same services with higher rates and lower fees Traditional Lenders vs. Peer-to-Peer Marketplaces: P2P lending marketplaces are growing much faster than traditional lenders—only time will tell if the banks strategy of creating their own small loan networks will be successful Traditional Asset Managers vs. Robo-Advisors: Robo-advisors like Betterment offer lower fees, lower minimums and solid returns to investors, but the much larger traditional asset managers are creating their own robo-products while providing the kind of handholding that high net worth clients are willing to pay handsomely for.As you can see, this very fluid environment is creating winners and losers before your eyes…and it s also creating the potential for new cost savings or growth opportunities for both you and your company.After months of researching and reporting this important trend, Evan Bakker, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has put together an essential report on the fintech ecosystem that explains the new

Photograph: Kim Kulish/Corbis via Getty ImagesA new school funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, is facing delays in construction due to a water crisis in East Palo Alto, a Silicon Valley city that has struggled with poverty amid the region s tech boom.The roughly $45bn pledge came several years after Zuckerberg partnered with the city of Newark, New Jersey, in an effort to help improve its public schools.The school initially declined to comment, but after publication of this article, spokesman Brent Colburn released a statement saying the school would open in a temporary space in the fall, adding: We look forward to continuing to work with the city on permits for a permanent location.When the city was incorporated in the 1980s, officials allocated East Palo Alto far less water than surrounding cities, according to local paper the Peninsula Press.The disparity and water shortage remains a problem today, according to East Palo Alto assistant city manager Sean Charpentier, who noted that the city receives roughly 76 gallons of water per day per capita – a significantly smaller amount than the 114 gallons surrounding municipalities receive.We cannot entitle projects until we can prove there is a water supply available for them, Charpentier said, adding: We have a water allocation that is inadequate for the size of our city in terms of allowing it to grow.
The functionality was promised earlier this month, a considerable about-face from the service which had, until now, prioritized ephemerality over building up a library of old broadcasts.However, with Facebook Live - the rival service that allows Facebook users to stream their own video to their pages on the social network - courting advertisers with the promise that the videos they carefully staged wouldn't disappear after a day, a change in strategy for Periscope seemed inevitable.The company ran a temporary trial with a workaround system, where appending " save" to the title of a stream would flag to the service that it should be stored for longer, but now that's no longer necessary.Open up the settings in Periscope and you'll find a toggle to turn back on "Auto-Delete after 24hr"Should you forget to do that, or prefer to deal with videos on a broadcast-by-broadcast basis, you can individually delete any saved clips after streaming has done or by going to your profile page.It's one of a number of changes Periscope has put in place over the past weeks to try to broaden the appeal of the service.Streaming support for DJI drones, for instance, allows broadcasters to take the live video from their UAV and show people in real-time, complete with support for on-screen annotations that allow you to note flight plans or areas of interest.
