For many Americans, the first Moon landing serves as a historic -but distant- memory.Current generations learn about the event from parents or a textbook, but for flight director Gene Kranz the mission is personal.Kranz served as the flight director for several historic NASA missions; including the first manned Apollo mission and the Apollo 11 Moon landing.APOLLO 11'S MICHAEL COLLINS REFLECTS ON HISTORIC MOON LANDING: 'WE WERE JUST REGULAR ASTRONAUTS'The former NASA official says he always gets “misty” when he thinks about Apollo 11.But though he remembers the mission itself fondly, he expressed his concern to Fox’s Kristin Fisher that the U.S. hasn’t made it past the moon nearly 50 years later.
Now an Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) model developed at UC Davis Health and reported in a new study can predict acute kidney injury quicker and more accurately than ever.Physicians typically rely on traditional biomarkers such as serum/plasma creatinine and urine output for diagnosis.However, urine output and creatinine measures are considered poor biomarkers of AKI."UC Davis was the first to identify the role a novel biomarker, known as neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (NGAL), plays in early prediction of AKI in severely burned patients," said Nam Tran, associate clinical professor at Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UC Davis.Despite its strong predictive power, NGAL was not available in the United States and its interpretation required more experienced clinicians and laboratory experts.This challenge prompted the development of an artificial intelligence machine learning model to make it easier to interpret results for the NGAL test.
As if landing on large planets weren’t difficult enough, the space scientists and engineers in at JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) wanted to land a spacecraft on an asteroid.In fact, it wanted to do it twice, on the same moving asteroid.Mind-boggling but definitely epic and, fortunately for JAXA and its probe, that is exactly what happened.The very proud space agency just announced that its Hayabusa2 successfully hopped on the asteroid Ryugu for the second time and it sent home pictures to prove its short adventure.Hayabusa2 wasn’t intended to stay on the surface of a moving body like Ryugu, which actually complicated matters.It only made a short landing and then jumped back up, in other words, a hop, on the asteroid’s surface last March.
WASHINGTON – The longtime head of NASA’s human spaceflight programs has been replaced as the agency races to meet President Trump’s ambitious goal of returning American astronauts to the Moon in five years, a major shakeup that has stunned the space community.William Gerstenmaier – known within the agency as simply "Gerst" – started working at NASA in 1977 as an engineer and rose to the rank of associate administrator for human exploration and operations in 2004.But according to NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, it’s precisely those bona fides that earned him the boot.“He's been at NASA for 42 years and we love him, and in fact, we have an opportunity now to land on the Moon in the year 2024 because of the hard work that he has put into the program,” Bridenstine said of Gerstenmaier in an exclusive interview with Fox News.“But sometimes we need to remember, he started working at NASA when I was 2 years old, and there comes a time in every career when it's time to move on.”(Sergei Savostyanov/TASS via Getty Images, File)

a space probe Hayabusa2, has once again landed on a distant asteroid to take samples, which may provide an insight into the history. "We're all relieved to see that he is once again sending data from the antenna, which can transmit a lot of data for us", says the spokesperson Having Tomobe, at the japanese space agency Jaxa.the Landing was at the Ryugu, about 300 million kilometres from earth.this is The second time that the Hayabusa2 land on the asteroid.
While Netflix is mostly concerned with offering its subscribers new and original content, the streaming service offers a lot of classic movies as well.The result was 1993’s Schindler’s List, which chronicles the real-life efforts of German businessman Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson) to save as many Jews from the Nazi’s extermination camps as he could.Monty Python and the Holy GrailAfter gathering a cult following for their work on the BBC comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and a movie based on it, this group of sketch comedians blew audiences away with their first original film.1975’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail remains one of funniest movies ever made and certainly deserves to be on our 10 best classic movies on Netflix list.His mission: Kill the mother of the human resistance leader that has managed to defeat the AI that started this mess.
Azure fans can put off the grim reaper for three more yearsMicrosoft SQL Server 2008 hold-outs took their first, tentative steps into an unsupported future today as the Windows giant finally pulled the plug on support for the venerable relational database.Come, hold hands, bid a fond farewell to an old friend, and sing songs of T-SQL, encryption and a seemingly never-ending succession of patches.Released almost 11 years ago, SQL Server 2008 built on its predecessor's XML support and added toys for semi-structured and unstructured data via the shiny new FILESTREAM data type.Other new data types made an appearance including DATE, TIME and location data in the form of some spatial types.SQL Server 2008 was aimed fairly and squarely at corporates pondering a move away from the familiar confines of Oracle and its ilk.

Today, Apple refreshed much of its entry-level laptop lineup in time for a "Back to School" push that includes slashed prices for educators and students.Additionally, the company discontinued the 12-inch MacBook and significantly cut prices of solid-state storage upgrade options across the Mac lineup, including in high-end models like the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro.Previously, the 13-inch MacBook Pro lineup was divided into two categories: low-end, Touch Bar-free models, and higher-end models with Touch Bars.Now, every unit in the lineup is equipped with a Touch Bar, which brings into question some speculation by onlookers that Apple doesn't want to further invest in the Touch Bar.In today's refreshes, only the entry-level, non-Touch Bar models have been replaced.In addition to a Touch Bar, the bottom two configurations now include Touch ID, Apple's T2 security chip, and True Tone, a display technology that matches the white balance of the screen to the ambient environment to reduce eye strain and achieve a more naturalistic, albeit not as color-accurate, look.
Mozilla has released Firefox 68, with improvements for all platforms – but particularly iOS, which has received several major updates.For desktop users, the changes are relatively small.Firefox's reader mode (which strips away images and formatting so you can read the text more easily) now has an improved dark mode.Check out our ultimate guide to the best browsersPreviously, taking a trip to the dark side in reader mode meant that the text area was black, but other elements like sidebars and toolbars remained light.In Firefox 68, those parts of the page are also turned dark, making them less distracting and easier on the eyes.
““We basically built our product protocol to be completely compatible with the Amazon S3 protocol down to every error code, every single behaviour”S3 object storage specialist Cloudian has been growing rapidly in recent years, tapping a vein of demand for “super capacity” storage requirements; or capacity-intensive object storage workloads that can reach tens of petabytes.The company offers a software-defined object storage service that transforms servers into a pool of logical storage resources, using Amazon’s S3 API, which has become the de facto standard for object storage APIs.Its most recent offering comes via a tie-up with flash storage specialist Seagate (featuring Cloudian software and Seagate hardware) that allows users to store up to a massive 18 petabytes in a single data center rack).Its focus: private cloud, where more and more data is being stored.Cloudian CEO Michael Tso, an MIT graduate who was raised in Shanghai and Hong Kong, told Computer Business Review: “I think the thing that is very, very apparent in both of these announcements is that both Seagate and VM [Cloudian also announced a major partnership with VMware in June] have come to the same conclusion; they also believe that S3 is the standard for the object storage world.”
Australia-based Employment Hero has received roughly US$15 million in investment via a series C round led by jobs marketplace Seek, an existing investor in the human resources startup, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.The funding round also saw participation from local firms Airtree Ventures and OneVentures.This marks a crucial step in the company’s plan to test international markets, said Ben Thompson, Employment Hero’s founder and CEO.“We’re not focused on raising capital again in the next few years – potentially ever,” he added.
The mapping app on your phone isn’t always as reliable as you might hope, and despite all the advances in AI and street photography, Apple Maps and Google Maps can still benefit from some human editing.Google Maps actively encourages interaction, even if it’s just leaving a star rating for somewhere you’ve visited.Those ratings don’t take long to leave but can improve your place recommendations next time, as well as help other travellers (Google will pick out phrases like “great cocktails” and match them with what other people are searching for).Even better, leave a review and some photos: Just tap on a place on the map, bring up its info card, and scroll down to leave a review or a picture.Being able to take a look inside somewhere can really help other users when they’re choosing where to go next.All of these suggested edits are reviewed by the Google Maps team, so it might take a while for them to show up in the app.
