Det smarta låsbolaget Glue fyller på kassan med 50 miljoner kronor, enligt handlingar Di Digital har tagit del av.Befintliga ägare som H:s vd Karl-Johan Persson är också med i finansieringsrundan, som värderar Glue till 258 miljoner kronor (med de nya pengarna inräknade).”Vi står inför flera spännande saker”, säger Glues vd Carl Johan Grandinson.Glues smarta lås har använts av exempelvis vårdhem och privatpersoner.Bolaget grundades redan 2014 men har hittills haft svårt att få igång försäljningen.Under 2017, det senast rapporterade räkenskapsåret, omsatte Glue 3,5 miljoner kronor med 22 miljoner kronor i förluster.

Today, its founders are back with their second act: An AI-enabled assistant called Navigator meant to help teams work and communicate more efficiently.With the support of $12 million in Series A funding from CRV, Angels, Designer Fund, SV Angel, Dropbox’s Drew Houston and other angel investors, Aspen, the San Francisco and Seattle-based startup behind Navigator, has quietly been beta testing its tool within 50 organizations across the U.S.“We’ve had teams and research institutes and churches and academic institutions, places that aren’t businesses at all in addition to smaller startups and large four-figure-person organizations using it,” Mailbox and Navigator co-founder and chief executive officer Gentry Underwood tells TechCrunch.It launched in 2013, as mentioned, to quick success.At the time, Apple’s App Store was much newer and there were few available options for mobile email, especially ones that prioritized design and efficiency, as Mailbox did.“There were still a lot of opportunities for improvements for how email was being used on these tiny little devices.”

Oculus has firmly established itself as one of the VR industry’s most visionary companies, and its annual Connect conferences are typically one of two times each year when its biggest new initiatives are revealed.Today, the Facebook subsidiary announced that Oculus Connect 6 will be held on September 25 and 26 in San Jose, and it’s hinting at something big — maybe.The event will take place at San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center, almost certainly opening with a keynote on day one — and if history is any guide, following up with a technical keynote on day two.Oculus says that it’s inviting developers to “join us to begin a new chapter of virtual and augmented reality,” which sounds pretty exciting and could signal anything from a major new hardware reveal to some substantial new software or services.It could also be little more than a pep talk to developers.Alongside the “new chapter” message, the company also notes that Connect is “our moment to think bigger, build smarter, and realize the true potential of what we’ve created together.” In other words, with Oculus Quest and Rift S now in the marketplace, and no major update to Oculus Go likely to hit this year, the company could spend Connect 6 showing off improved developer tools, a rival to Viveport Infinity, or a bigger connective hub for Oculus experiences.

PARIS (AP) — A revolver believed used by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh to kill himself has sold for about $146,000 at an auction in Paris.An individual buyer whose name was not released bought the 7mm pocket revolver for 130,000 euros plus taxes on Wednesday.The weapon was discovered in the 1960s in fields in the northern French village of Auvers-sur-Oise.Van Gogh is widely believed to have shot himself in the chest there in 1890.The family of former owners of the inn where the painter died two days later decided to sell the revolver after it was featured in a 2016 exhibit at Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum that charted his descent into mental illness.Van Gogh’s suicide was questioned in a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors who concluded he was fatally shot by two teenagers.

New Rochelle, NY, June 14, 2019--A therapeutic gene delivered into the spinal canal of infant rhesus monkeys was still being expressed after nearly 4 years, with no evidence of acute or chronic neuronal toxicity, according to a new study published in Human Gene Therapy, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.Click here to read the full-text article free on the Human Gene Therapy website through July 14, 2019.The article entitled "Safe and Sustained Expression of Human Iduronidase After In-trathecal Administration of Adeno-Associated Virus Serotype 9 in Infant Rhesus Mon-keys" was coauthored by James M. Wilson, MD, PhD, University of Pennsylvania, Pe-relman School of Medicine (Philadelphia) and a team of researchers from the Universi-ty of Pennsylvania, University of West Indies (Kingston, Jamaica), and University of California, Davis School of Medicine and California National Primate Research Center.Dr. Wilson's group used intrathecal injection to deliver adeno-associated virus 9 (AAV9) vectors carrying the gene for the alpha-I-iduronidase (IDUA) enzyme.Based on the safety and long-term potency of AAV9-IDUA delivery via the cere-berospinal fluid demonstrated in this study in newborn monkeys, the authors conclude that the clinical development of this method of gene therapy should be pursued for ear-ly-onset severe forms of neuropathic storage diseases such as MPS I."The problem of physical delivery of AAV vectors to the appropriate cells remains a significant technical hurdle in gene therapy for disorders affecting the central nervous system," says Editor-in-Chief Terence R. Flotte, MD, Celia and Isaac Haidak Professor of Medical Education and Dean, Provost, and Executive Deputy Chancellor, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA.

Ever since Amazon introduced its “Amazon’s Choice” label in 2015 to recommend certain products, a skeptical world has been trying to find out what the badge actually means — because some items that are “Amazon’s Choice” really shouldn’t be.Even if a product has the badge and seems to have a high star score, you still might wind up with a stinker that you’d have been warned against if you’d just done your homework, BuzzFeed reports today.Some examples: a $23 breathalyzer that obviously stole positive reviews from entirely different products, and a $20 infant thermometer that Amazon’s own user review highlighting tool flags as a “waste of money”.So far, no journalist seems to have gotten a straight answer from Amazon about whether the “Amazon’s Choice” badge is something a real human ever looks at or just a human-developed algorithm.CNET and Wired each took a stab in recent years and didn’t get much further than The Wall Street Journal did in 2015.On Amazon’s site, the official description is this:

The University of Nottingham is leading a €2m High Performance Computing (HPC) project to optimise the sustainable exploitation of wind power in both the European and Brazilian energy markets.The two-year project will involve 12 partners from across Europe and Brazil with a proven track record of HPC hardware, wind energy, numerical methods, software development and industrial applications.Annual energy production by wind turbines reached around 10.4 per cent in the EU by the end of 2016.Brazil, meanwhile, has the ninth largest wind capacity in the world and is experiencing more than 10 per cent annual growth with nearly 500 wind farms already deployed.HPC has been a must for each of these activities and is also essential to the supply change of wind energy, as well as other related industries, such as power systems, energy storage, etc."Wind as a clean and renewable alternative to fossil fuels has become an increasingly important contributor to the energy portfolio of both Europe and Brazil.

Security researchers have uncovered a knock-off cryptocurrency trading website designed to steal the funds of unwitting victims.Cybercriminals have created a website that imitates the Cryptohopper cryptocurrency trading platform to distribute malware that could steal personal information, hijack your clipboard, and crypto-jack your system, Bleeping Computer reports.When users visit the imitation Cryptohopper website, their system will automatically download and execute a file simply called Setup.exe.While on the surface it might appear legitimate, it’s actually a Trojan.On execution, the Trojan installs two further viruses: one acts as a cryptocurrency miner, and the other, as a clipboard hijacker.This kind of attack helps hackers earn digital coins from the mining, whilst also potentially stealing passwords, addresses, usernames, and other sensitive information that people might copy to their clipboard.

PFAS är ett globalt problem, och i USA har delstaten New Hampshire nu stämt åtta av de företag som ligger bakom produkterna, bland andra 3M och DuPont.Under våren släppte Nordiska ministerrådets sin rapport "The cost of inaction".Enligt rådets beräkningar kommer PFAS-saneringen i de nordiska länderna att kosta mellan 480 miljoner och 115 miljarder kronor.Men nu ska Luleå tekniska universitet kombinera de mest lovande teknikerna för efterbehandling som beskrivs i forskningen, och skala upp dem till en billig metod som kan tillämpas direkt där problemen finns.– Det finns ett batteri av metoder som har visat sig vara effektiva – men de har inte tillämpats i full skala.Vi kan använda kemikalier för att skapa fria radikaler, som hjälper till med oxidationen.

After visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge several months ago to report on how it was built, I came back on the eve of it opening to the public to try out its first marquee attraction: flying the Millennium Falcon.This ride is for everyone who dreamed of piloting the Falcon more than they dreamed about holding a lightsaber.This ride is for every person that rode Star Tours shuttle and gripped the slightly up-turned handles wishing hard that they could fly it.It’s clever, incredibly well art-directed and absolutely smoothly operational.The ride offers a thrilling group experience that will foster shouting and interaction in the cockpit just as we’ve seen in the movies.As you go through the line you are presented with multiple views of the falcon itself, making utilization of the 100 foot ship.

Telecoms.com periodically invites third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues.In this article Engineer Gerado Mantilla and Lawyer Patricia Falconí Castillo offer a deep dive into the topic of licensing renewal.Recently, the Inter-American Association of Telecommunications Companies (“ASIET” in Spanish), public a document called “Telecommunications: a strategic ally for Latin America development”, where it made important contributions to telecommunications regulation policy, in special, regarding authorizations issue on spectrum use.Now, it is worth analyzing these aspects since its genesis, taking much more relevance when considering telecommunications markets openings, especially in Latin America, where in many cases some spectrum licensing for use and telecommunications exploitation have already been renewed.From these licensing renewals, it has been possible to observe a lack of clear rules and tangible or measurable elements that allow an objective identification of causes that will be evaluated by NRA to make decision to renew or not.Knowing what licensing are and assuming that, one fundamental pillars for telecommunications development are investments that companies make it, not only at infrastructure level, but also when it participate on radio spectrum assignments; licensing granted must take care of legal security application principle, which “is nothing other than the possibility that the State must give us through the right to foresee the effects and consequences of our actions or the conclusion of contracts to perform them in the terms prescribed in the norm, so that they have the effects that we want or to take the updated measures to avoid the effects that we do not want, and that could take place according to the law”
