Uber has lured former U.S. Secret Service director Mark Sullivan to join its safety advisory board, a group established by the etaxi giant six months ago, designed to bring together expertise and experience from across the safety spectrum.Sullivan joined the Secret Service in 1983 and served as director from 2006 until his retirement in March 2013 after which he cofounded his own security company.Reports also emerged that Sullivan had pulled agents off their posts onto a new assignment, known internally as Operation Moonlight, to monitor his assistant who was reportedly being harassed by her neighbor.Uber itself has been at the center of a number of security and safety concerns in recent times, which is why it created roles such as Managing Counsel of Data Privacy and Head of Global Safety, and last year it hired Joe Sullivan no relation to Mark as its first chief security officer.Sullivan joined from Facebook where he served in a similar role for five years.Last August, Uber hired renowned car-hackers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, a duo who had demonstrated how they could hack into a moving Jeep, and just yesterday Uber announced its first official self-driving car tests are to take place in the coming weeks.Nabbing the former Secret Service director for its board could be construed as a major coup for Uber s safety credentials, despite the controversy that surrounded Sullivan s tenure.As we continue to innovate and grow, we depend on the advice of this safety advisory board to help guide our creativity and give us insights into their fields of expertise —  ranging from women s safety to law enforcement, said Joe Sullivan.For 35 years, Mr. Sullivan served in many capacities as a Federal Law Enforcement Agent where he led high impact initiatives in criminal investigations and protective operations, threat assessment and risk management.Mark Sullivan joins existing board members John Barton, former executive director at the Texas Department of Transportation; Ed Davis, a former Boston Police Commissioner; Jessica Eaglin, Indiana University Bloomington, Maurer School of Law; Margaret Richardson, Counsel at Covington Burling; and Cindy Southworth, executive vice president, National Network to End Domestic Violence, founder of the Safety Net Technology Project and board member of the Global Network of Women s Shelters.Today s news comes less than a month after Uber appointed the Huffington Post s Arianna Huffington to its board of directors, a move that was controversial in its own right given the potential conflict of interests it poses in her role as head of a major media outlet.
An Arizona TV journalist on assignment covering the alleged sacrifice and smoking of a family poodle was arrested earlier this week for allegedly dropping his pants and dumping a load in public.According to the Phoenix New Times, CBS 5's Jonathan Lowe is alleged to have been caught short in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear, whereupon he simply exited his news van and allegedly emptied his bowels in someone's garden.The report continues that when confronted by an officer, Lowe said: "I know what you want to talk to me about.Lowe has been charged under the Goodyear code violation of "public urination or defecation", punishable by "a fine of up to $2,500 or six months in jail".If Lowe has been flushed, then his last assignment concerned the bizarre case of the former Arizona State University football player who, according to court documents, "burned a shirt that belonged to his 17-year-old daughter in the industrial-size smoker in a trailer in his side yard, saying he didn't like the shirt because he believed it had to do with the devil", then declared "in front of his wife and four children that he had to make a sacrifice of a male, either himself, his 6-year-old son or the family dog".According to court documents, he told officers that he chose the dog, broke its neck, and police later discovered the poor poodle "dead in the smoker".

Sansa is pure steel in this scene, and her cold declaration that she wants nothing more to do with him is fantastic.After that, though, the episode makes its usual stops on various storylines, but they re all surprisingly low stakes, and in some cases a little boring:• Arya is ordered by Jaqen to kill an actress who seems nice, possibly at the behest of an actress who doesn t seem nice.When Arya tries to drop subtle hints that maybe killing nice people isn t cool, Jaqen flatly tells her the Many-Faced God comes for the nice and not nice alike, and if Arya screws her assignment again, she can get the hell out of the House of Black and White.• The Kingsmoot is held at the Iron Islands; Yara nominates herself, and Theon manages to give a nice speech proclaiming her the best ruler at which point Euron Greyjoy arrives, announces he actually killed Balon and is going to hook up with fellow would-be Westeros invader Daenerys Targaryen in Meereen both militarily and sexually .His first vision with the Three-Eyed Raven is of the distant past, where the Children of the Forest gather around a giant Weirwood tree, surrounded by a spiral of stones.They have a man, a human man, tied to the tree, and a Child — the same Child who s been hanging out with him and the Raven — slowly pushes a knife into his chest, clearly sacrificing him, and the man s eyes turn ice blue.

To see how technology has impacted her family members, Chelsey Hale decided to capture the moments when they were wrapped up in social media, and the results are eye-opening.The photographer from Watertown, New York, decided to focus on technology for a school photo assignment after she wrote her senior paper on the effects of social media.Hale told The Huffington Post that her photos, which mostly feature her mom, dad and sister along with a few friends, reflect how social media impacts relationships between family members.Chelsey Hale/Cherished Moments Photography Chelsey Hale s photos show how often families turn to social media.Hale believes that spending too much time plugged-in affects the way children interact with each other.Children are making social media accounts as young as 8- and 9-years-old these days, which means instead of playing outside with their friends, they are commenting back and forth with them on posts, she said.

One teaching assistant replied, pointing to a portion of the assignment that set a 15 minute limit.The student clarified that their agent was running a little slow, and could take a bit longer. But this past January-April was the first semester in which he let the AI, secretly, help teach.Here's how he pulled it off: While the core of an online course is usually a video series with the professor, most of the actual class — including interactions with teaching assistants — happens through text posts.In Goel's case his students,  300 enrollees in Georgia Tech's online masters in computer science program, had a class-wide forum where they could ask questions about the class, its subject matter, and the assignments. "It's a graduate-level class in AI," Goel pointed out, "And the 300 students in this class typically are professionals. Goel wants to build a world where AIs make online education better, more accessible, and more effective in teaching individual students who might otherwise drop out for lack of individualized attention.Jill is just his first step.This is the first article in a quick, three-part series on Jill Watson, her training, and her implications for the future of education.

Case in point: YouTube channel UberGubr found that playing jazz along competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee matches works very well.He told Digital Trends that this concept came to him while he was watching Melee instead of working on his assignment.Considering Goss first video was recieved very well by the internet, with over 800,000 views in little over a month, he definitely intends on creating more content.Over the summer I plan to continue making Melee videos in order to establish a subscriber base.There are plans to compose over other fighting games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, but Goss has his sights set on something bigger.He plans for a large scale project that would score a boss fight from Dark Souls III.

Trafikverket will according to the government "analyze and present possible measures" takeover in-house maintenance, licensing and delivery monitoring, and maintenance inspection of the state rail network. The work shall include also review the equipment and the technical equipment plant would need for the mission, and what equipment to state-owned and private inter alia to promote competition and increase efficiency. The assignment also includes accounting for the financial consequences of the change. A first part of the investigation will be reported to the government by 28 October and the remainder by 24 February next year.
In 2015, seven students from Imperial College of London turned to IBM for help with a class project.Their assignment?The team decided to build an environmental probe that'd measure temperature, light, and movement — then beam that data back to a lab, which would recreate emergency conditions in real-time.The students made a device powered by a Raspberry Pi  a programmable computer that fits in the palm of your hand , then deployed it into the most extreme environment they could get access to: the edge of space.John McNamara, who helps people invent things for a living at IBM's Innovation Center in Hursley, England, mentored the students to help them build the space probe in less than a month.McNamara told Tech Insider the project could be a way for first responders to train for disasters before having to enter dangerous situations themselves.Now floats majestically in my office @IBMmessaging @IBMBluemix — John McNamara @j0nnymac June 30, 2015This space probe was the very first prototype, but it could turn into a real tool that could help first responders during natural disasters one day.For now, McNamara said he's working on developing the probe into a drone equipped with artificial intelligence that could measure temperature, air quality, and social media feeds above a disaster area.But the new drone would be smart — really smart — since it'd use IBM Watson to survey disaster areas and identify people who need help.Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.More from Tech Insider:There s an HDTV antenna that s literally made from dead cable boxesWatch this crazy time-lapse of Dutch builders putting a tunnel under a highway in 48 hours20 amazing things you can do with Pebble's new $70 deviceA new app called Recharge lets you rent hotel rooms by the minute for extremely short staysRussia just took down its 'largest ever' hacker ring that allegedly stole $25 millionNOW WATCH: This is ESCHER — the disaster relief robot by Virginia Tech competing in the DARPA Robotics ChallengeLoading video...
Most people reach a point where they find the task of managing work efficiently to be daunting.The emails, the client meetings, the intra-departmental issues, the fatigue; it all takes its toll.To make matters worse, at the end of the day, the mind is more comparable to a zombie than an entrepreneur.But, no need to panic.If you adopt a few tried and tested methods used by such people, your efficiency at workplace is likely to improve.Distancing yourselfA lot of people end up wasting precious time at the workplace simply because they fail to distance themselves from colleagues.On days with a typical workload, there is nothing wrong in chatting a little with co-workers or taking a few coffee breaks.However, on days with loads of work and tight deadlines, it is best to put up a Do Not Disturb board on the outside of the office or desk at work.This will help save a lot of time and complete assignment and chores within office hours.Use the correct toolsLike I said, technology is a double-edged sword.So, while eliminating technological distraction at work is a necessity, it does not make sense to avoid the weapons at our disposal.Using tools like Skyward ERP can automate regular tasks, which can prove to be helpful.RelaxNo matter how much high or low the salary, or how many people are in the organization, every employee needs to find some time and relax.Why else would business tycoons buy their private jets and islands?Most of us are not that wealthy, but that does not mean life needs to be a constant hustle.Such friends can also be useful when it is time to vent about work-related or other stressful moments in life.What else you can doApart from the list above, subtle changes in workflow can enhance workplace efficiency.For example, do not try and take on hardcore multitasking at the workplace.
But it's also a worthwhile endeavour, because frankly at the moment, outages are all-too-often mysteries – submarine cable companies, for example, try to avoid announcing cable breaks if they can get away with it.– if, for example, you wanted to check congestion in OzEmail's network from a Sydney vantage point, a probe to the nearest router and one to the furthest in Perth, for example should tell you whether there's an unexpectedly big change in latency.It turned out to be hard to identify a network's interdomain links – network owners don't follow any standard for internal IP address assignment, ISPs maintain unadvertised IP address spaces, and traceroute isn't a particularly reliable probe mechanism.Next on CAIDA's list is to add alarms, so sysadmins can have their lives made hell by the question what happened to the Ballarat CDN link when a video goes unexpectedly viral.As the team notes: The major piece that remains is continuous analysis of the TSLP data, generating alarms, and pushing on-demand measurements to the reactive measurement system .Amogh Dhamdhere, Matthew Luckie, Alex Gamero-Garrido, Bradley Huffaker, kc claffy, Steve Bauer, David Clark are the core team in the development.
Patent war never changes...Chip designer Broadcom is suing Sony over allegations the PlayStation 4 has been using patents without a license.Filing suit PDF in the Central California District Court, Broadcom claims that the latest Sony gaming box infringes on ten of its patents covering basic activities performed by a home console, such as decoding audio and video content and wirelessly transmitting data.5,870,087: "MPEG decoder system and method having a unified memory for transport decode and system controller functions"6,744,387: "Method and system for symbol binarization" of MPEG data streams 6,982,663: "Method and system for symbol binarization"7,006,636: "Coherence-based audio coding and synthesis"7,472,151: "System and method for accelerating arithmetic decoding of video data"7,583,805: "Late reverberation-based synthesis of auditory scenes"7,400,643: "Transmission of wide bandwidth signals in a network having legacy devices"7,616,955: "Method and system for bits and coding assignment utilizing Eigen beamforming with fixed rates for closed loop WLAN"7,720,294: "Unified decoder architecture"8,147,332: "Method of indicating the ordinal number of a player in a wireless gaming system"Broadcom obtained the patents earlier this year as part of its merger with Avago, which itself acquired the patents when it bought LSI in 2014.The suit alleges that while Sony had previously had a license to use all ten of the patents under a deal with LSI, the home entertainment giant let the deal lapse in 2014 and has not bothered to ink a new deal with Avago/Broadcom.Broadcom/Avago claims that since last year, it has attempted to bring Sony in on talks for a new licensing deal, but did not receive a response or counter-offer.The filing seeks a jury trial to determine damages, though judging from the complaint, Broadcom would appear open to settling the case before reaching that point.
App-enabled cab service Uber is announcing today that its UberRush application programming interface API is now available for any developer to use in order to bring an on-demand delivery component to their own applications.Uber has already mastered the art of getting people from place to place, and that same expertise can be transferred over to the delivery of goods.The company is pointing to a few early implementations of the API: on-demand pizza delivery app Pythagoras, on-demand dry cleaning service Dryv, on-demand meal delivery services Ando and Mealmade, and on-demand drone rental business Up Sonder.I think the aspirations are very, very big — it s a very big bet for the company, UberRush product manager Calvin Lee told reporters in a briefing at Uber headquarters in San Francisco earlier this week.And Uber is committing staff resources to UberRush.Hundreds of people are currently working on the Uber Everything team out of some 8,000 total Uber employees around the world , a spokesperson said.It s unclear if delivery could one day eclipse the core ride-sharing service in terms of revenue.But from the outside, UberRush does appear to have the potential to become a serious revenue source, one that could hold a prominent place in Uber s quarterly financial statements for years to come.But now that the API is out the door, Uber has another big assignment: expanding the geographical reach of the UberRush service itself.People already driving Uber app users around can also sign up to do UberRush deliveries, and there are some drivers who are only doing deliveries of goods, Lee said.
I've asked in r/Manchester too but thought I'd ask here too.I'm doing an assignment as part of a Marketing CIM distance learning course and whilst I've had some great feedback on my 1st draft from my tutor, I think sitting down with someone and going through it in person would be best for me before I hand in the final draft in just under 3 weeks.Wondering if anyone out there has perhaps completed this course and would be able to help me out?I'm willing to pay.Thanks
