Here, a well-deserved break from the presidential election post-mortems: Some November results that may well change your life that have nothing to do with chyrons, Twitter feeds, or exit polls.A year ago, Congress finally passed a longterm transportation bill, increasing federal funding but maintaining the status quo focus on cars and highways.It s not enough, cities, regions, and states say, their roads still pitted, their regional transit visions unfunded.So over the past three decades, local policymakers have turned away from Washington, using ballot referendums to ask voters to fund projects themselves.And this year, more than ever, US cities had a message for the feds: Fine, we ll do it ourselves.In Los Angeles, voters gave an enthusiastic OK to a 1/2-cent sales tax hike that will fund $120 billion in transit operations and construction over the next 40 years.
On Tuesday, startup Hyperloop One announced that it had signed a deal with Dubai s Roads and Transport Authority RTA to conduct a number of feasibility studies on potential Hyperloop routes in the United Arab Emirates UAE .Earlier this year, the company agreed to develop a Hyperloop cargo offloader at the port and later received $50 million from Dubai's port operator, DP World.These new feasibility studies commissioned by RTD seem aimed at transporting humans as well as cargo, however.The Hyperloop is a concept advanced in recent years by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.Musk s plans suggested using low-friction tubes to send pods through at 700mph, but the CEO declined to put resources toward building a Hyperloop and offered his ideas to any startup that wanted to attempt to bring it to market.Hyperloop One was one of those startups; another group called Hyperloop Transportation Technologies relies on volunteer work from NASA, SpaceX, Boeing, and Tesla engineers.

ESL Electronic Sports League at Pax Australia, held this month in Melbourne.Australia used to have several major international studios producing games but from 2008, several mainstays shut their doors – Sega, THQ and 2K among them – due to the global financial crisis and the rising Australian dollar.In this ever-growing transport network, you need to figure out the best combination of lines, carriages and tunnels to get your passengers to where they need to go in the most efficient way.Sydney-based game company Alta have made a social virtual reality game in which you run a village with others, taking turns mining, smithing, hunting and building.Every other VR game I saw at Pax was either about solving puzzles, shooting things or on rails , meaning it wouldn t let you move around and explore.For fans of: Minecraft, cooperative social games, villages
An image of the Hyperloop trackDubai has agreed a deal with US startup Hyperloop One to evaluate the construction of a near-supersonic transport link that could slash travel times to Emirati capital Abu Dhabi to minutes.The California-based firm hailed Tuesday's "historic" agreement."We begin to evaluate the delivery of the world's first hyperloop system across the country," chief executive Rob Lloyd told reporters."We will initially focus on the value that Hyperloop One will deliver in Dubai and across the United Arab Emirates."The system could later be expanded to link the UAE with neighbouring Gulf countries so that a trip between Dubai and Saudi capital Riyadh - currently two hours by plane - could be completed in under 50 minutes.
Switchzilla has expanded its range of SME edge boxes, adding the all-in-one ISR 4221 to its flagship range of branch networking systems.Offering throughput between 35 Mbps and 75 Mbps on two WAN ports, the box pushes software-defined WAN SD WAN into the branch office, with an APIC Enterprise Module APIC-EM controller, IWAN application support, and integration into Cisco's Digital Network Architecture DNA .Security features in the switch include a zone-based firewall, Firepower threat defence, and IPSec VPN support Cisco's announcement reckons NAT – network address translation – also counts as a security feature, but most network pros would say only barely .The ISR 4221 has its own Linux container platform, LXC Linux virtual container , so signed network services like the Snort intrusion prevention service can be spun up in virtual machines.3G and 4G ports offer backup connectivity, and also position the switch as suitable for ATM connections, kiosks, and Internet of Things applications likes industrial deployments that lack dedicated MPLS transport .The device's data sheet is here should you wish to know more about the box's innards and capabilities.
The connection will provide customers with low-latency networks.SSE Enterprise Telecoms has partnered with London Stock Exchange Group LSEG , providing its customers with the ability to connect directly to London Stock Exchange.The new LSEG service offers next generation optical networking gateways using OTN optical transport networking interfaces.This enables LSEG customers to connect to over 70 commercial data centres nationally with very short lead times, cost effectively, with speeds of up to 100Gbps with various different routed channels needed.It follows the construction of new network routes, both under the streets in traditional ducts, as well as far deeper underground in the waste water network.London Stock Exchange customers will be provided with a range of low latency, a diverse routing option that uses either dark fibre or manage wavelength services to London City, Docklands and Slough data centres.
Baffling coded announcements on transport systems often have us wondering what they really mean, and now we know.Lists have been compiled and, rather appropriately, a call out for someone to deal with a "code two" on the Underground means it's time for some unlucky cleaner to fetch the bucket and wipe someone's toilet off the platform, seats or stairs.The list doing the rounds right now contains a complete dictionary of Underground cleaning announcement codes, such as:Code 5 - Broken GlassCode 7 - Miscellaneous things or unidentified seepages.So now you know and can be happy it's not your job to bring the wheelie bucket down the stairs.
Not only that, but the relentless desire to make the thing thinner has resulted in a better screen too, as the layers that make up the backlight, touchscreen digitizer and LCD screen are so close that Apple now claims there is zero air in between them.I'll get onto the design in a moment - but it's worth noting that the design alone is a good reason to pick up the iPad Air 2.It's not actually the thinnest, but we're at the point now where fractions of a millimetre really don't matter.Thinness for its own sake can be an error - there is a point of diminishing returns where only marginal improvements can be achieved, at the cost of structural integrity, battery life and overall performance - but Apple hasn't reached that point yet.The power button remains at the top and the volume keys have shuffled a little upwards now free of the silence key, but otherwise the only real design changes are the speaker grill at the bottom of the tablet now a single row of holes, rather than the two before and the Touch ID on the home key.These include new public transport directions on Apple Maps, improvements to Siri to make it more useful than ever and a News app which imitates Flipboard by displaying RSS content in a magazine style.
Driver not needed, but required.Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the world the company was going to develop the Tesla Semi in July.At the time, he surprisingly suggested the driverless vehicle would probably need a driver anyway, at least for a while, as reported by Electrek.It was during the announcement of the Tesla master plan part deux, when Musk first talked about the truck.We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate.More: Mining truck dumps the cab and the driver who used to sit in it
Into a world already crowded with big name alternatives to OpenSSL, an indy project could look like yet another SSL implementation, but Vulture South suspects there are good reasons to take a close look at the just-launched BearSSL.One is that its author, Thomas Pornin, has ignored the kinds of legacy protocols that occupy too much of the OpenSSL developers' time.Hence, TLS from version 1.0 onwards is supported, but Pornin doesn't need to sweep out old SSL code, because there's none in there.Unlike LibreSSL or Google's BoringSSL, this is a BearSSL of very little brain.It's been argued repeatedly that things aren't going to get decent security in their own right, because they're small and stupid.BearSSL offers a counter-argument: while it's early days, one of Pornin's design targets is that the server implementation fits in 20 KB of compiled code and 25 KB of RAM.

It s a rough day, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum.So if you need to distract yourself from the reality of the present, Hyperloop is here to help.Hyperloop One, the company leading the race to bring Elon Musk s vision of high-speed tubular travel to life, has signed a deal with Dubai s Roads and Transport Authority.Representatives say the LA-based startup will spend the next three months working with the government, McKinsey & Co., and the BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group to figure out how to actually build this thing in Dubai, and where it should run.If you somehow haven t heard, the Hyperloop is a proposed long-distance, high-speed transportation system, first floated by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in 2012.The lack of air minimizes resistance, and the pods would levitate above the floor of the tube, doing away with just about all the friction.
Hyperloop One and the United Arab Emirates are on the fast track to building out the first hyperloop system.Just today H1 announced it would build the first commercial hyperloop transportation system from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.The journey is 99 miles 159.4 km long and normally takes about two hours by car but H1 promises it would take a mere 12 minutes in the hyperloop.H1 is partnering with the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority RTA to evaluate the feasibility of building this system in greater Dubai and the UAE and the announcement follows the next stage of development for the company, which is gearing up for it s Kitty Hawk moment early next year when H1 will test a full-scale prototype of its system in the Nevada desert.It s also part of the company s next stage of progress in Dubai.Last August H1 co-founder Shervin Pishevar hinted the first hyperloop would be built overseas and the company announced in October it received $50 million in funding from DP World Group of Dubai, the third-largest ports operator in the world, to build a hyperloop system to move cargo throughout the country and the world.
Hyperloop One is making progress on creating its high-speed transportation system for passengers in Dubai.The start-up announced early on Tuesday that it signed an agreement with Dubai Roads and Transport Authority to evaluate the Hyperloop on Dubai and the UAE.Hyperloop One will conduct the feasibility study with McKinsey & Co. and the Bjarke Ingels Group.Hyperloop One is also pursuing using the high-speed system for transporting cargo underwater, and secured $50 million in a funding round led by DP World, the third largest port and terminal operator in the world, earlier in October for that purpose.The $50 million investment brought Hyperloop One's total funding to $160 million, according to the start-up.As part of Tuesday's announcement, Hyperloop One unveiled its concept for the futuristic transport system that it claims can take passengers from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes, which is normally a two-hour drive.Here's Hyperloop One's plan for the passenger system.
the Swedish company Globhe with ceo Helena Samsioe is on the train.Therefore, to the government of the impoverished country bet on the drones for transport of among other important equipment.– Several african countries are very quick and good at pick up modern technology to solve basic problems, " says Helena Samsioe, Swedish entrepreneur and the ceo of the company Globhe.the Company owns no own drones, but is working with a network of suppliers and consultants, which are incorporated in the chain in place.– We can call ourselves an Uber for drones, depending on what the customer asks for, we can match it with the appropriate technical provider. "But you usually talk about the last mile , that is to say, the last piece of the supply chain," says Helena Samsioe.
Hyperloop's chief executive Rob Lloyd signs a deal with Dubai's head of transport Mattar al-TayerHyperloop One, the firm that wants to build a futuristic super-fast transport system, has announced that the first version may connect Dubai and Abu Dhabi.The technology is still in testing phase so details of the deal were sketchy.Initially, it will explore the feasibility of building a line linking the two cities.Hyperloop was originally an idea from Tesla's boss and tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, who conceived the technical details of the transport system but left it to commercial firms to make the vision a reality.The high-speed transportation system would use electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo pod through a low-pressure tube at speeds of up to 700mph.
Just as promised, they kept Hyperloop One day a presentation in Dubai, where it presented its vision for the future of transport in the region.During the presentation, announced that Dubai will become the first city in the world that will get a Hyperloop from the Hyperloop One.the Idea is that this Hyperloop is to connect the region, and the plan is that it should be used for both the transport of people, as well as shipping of goods.Some all of the specific details of construction have not been revealed yet but it does hopefully come during the day.
If us Earthlings are ever going to travel vast distances into deep space at speeds that won t have us tapping our fingers and asking the captain, Are we there yet?Current methods can indeed transport spacecrafts huge distances, but they require large amounts of heavy fuel, as well as plenty of time to get anywhere.One idea that s been getting plenty of attention since it was first presented in 1999 is the EmDrive.Designed by aerospace engineer Roger Shawyer, the proposed warp drive design is remarkable in that its engine doesn t use fuel to cause a reaction.The EmDrive is, however, controversial, not least because it seems to challenge the known laws of physics.The paper, described as an early draft of Nasa s much-anticipated peer-reviewed paper on the technology, details tests carried out by NASA s experimental Eagleworks Laboratories at the Johnson Space Center in Texas and describes the system as consistently performing.
