The world's largest social network said Thursday it's handing over 3,000 Russia-linked ads to the Senate and House intelligence committees as investigators delve into what happened.Earlier this month, Facebook disclosed it sold $100,000 worth of ads to inauthentic accounts likely linked to Russia during the election.Disclosing content is not something we do lightly under any circumstances," Colin Stretch, Facebook's general counsel, said in a blog post."We believe the public deserves a full accounting of what happened in the 2016 election, and we've concluded that sharing the ads we've discovered, in a manner that is consistent with our obligations to protect user information, can help."Facebook has been in the spotlight as it tries to grapple with its scale and influence.The social network faces continued criticism for its handling of false news spreading on the site, as well as accusations that Facebook adds to division in the country by splitting people up over their ideologies.
Product reviews, user-submitted photos and videos, and testimonials are the best way to sway shoppers to click the add-to-cart button.If your product line lacks a good amount of quality feedback, there are a few workarounds.Invite customers to show off their use of your products by submitting media via the website or by using a designated hashtag across social media networks.Focus on community building rather than selling when encouraging customers to submit UCG.Even small bits of content helps, and taking action now provides a solid foundation for the coming months and years.For example, a single-serve coffee maker accompanied by six monthly shipments of coffee becomes a gift that keeps giving.
The subject of diversity in the technology industry has frequently been in the news lately, from reports of sexism at Uber, to the recent Google memo furore, to Gizmodo’s suggestion that “one percent of the tech workers for Facebook, Yahoo, Airbnb, and Google are black.” While there are many ongoing discussions in this area, LG at least wants to make a statement with regards to those with physical limitations: that they are welcome in the world of IT.To do so, LG has partnered with Rehabilitation International Korea (RI Korea) to organize the seventh annual Global IT Challenge for Youth with Disabilities in Hanoi, Vietnam.The event, which will take place from September 19 to 21, will see students from across 16 Asian countries compete in a range of IT-related tasks, the aim of which is to “minimize the digital divide in the participants’ ability to access technology and improve their chances of finding meaningful careers.”The participating students will be judged on their ability to think creatively and solve problems using modern tools, and the winners will receive cash prizes towards “educational expenses.” The tasks will be judged by a panel comprised of experts from LG Electronics’ R department, Seoul National Univerisity’s Computer Engineering department, and other IT specialists.“The challenges disabled individuals face in Asia won’t disappear overnight but with the proper training and attitude, we can help lower the barrier to entry into the IT workforce,” said Kim Young-lak, president of LG Electronics Vietnam.“LG is providing a foundation for today’s challenged youth to discover new possibilities and unleash their true potential.
New submitter kipperstem77 shares an excerpt from a report via The Next Platform: The National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) has, according to James Lin, vice director for the Center of High Performance Computing (HPC) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, who divulged the plans last year, is building one of the three pre-exascale machines [that China is currently investing in], in this case a kicker to the Tianhe-1A CPU-GPU hybrid that was deployed in 2010 and that put China on the HPC map.This exascale system will be installed at the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin, not the one in Guangzhou, according to Lin.This machine is expected to use ARM processors, and we think it will very likely use Matrix2000 DSP accelerators, too, but this has not been confirmed.The second pre-exascale machine will be an upgrade to the TaihuLight system using a future Shenwei processor, but it will be installed at the National Supercomputing Center in Jinan.And the third pre-exascale machine being funded by China is being architected in conjunction with AMD, with licensed server processor technology, and which everyone now thinks is going to be based on Epyc processors and possibly with Radeon Instinct GPU coprocessors.The Next Platform has a slide embedded in its report "showing the comparison between Tianhe-2, which was the fastest supercomputer in the world for two years, and Tianhe-2A, which will be vying for the top spot when the next list comes out."
The newest addition to the Chuwi extensive lineup has been showcased for the first time during the IFA 2017 and the Chuwi LapBook Air got some well deserved attention there.Now the latest Chuwi laptop model is ready for pre-orders and you can get a pretty good discount if you pull a trigger right away.Chuwi LapBook Air is of course influenced heavily by the thin MacBook line as the name suggests after all.Even though it’s sporting a fairly large 14.1-inch FullHD screen it keeps the weight pretty much in check with 1.3 kgs and the profile with 6mm in the thinnest spot.Backlit keyboard is also something we craved in the previous models and while the hardware is not cutting edge, it looks very decent and usable with Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD disk.The battery promises 33.7 Wh so nothing to scoff at either.
Regardless of what a smartwatch can do, it should look good on your wrist no matter what.It makes for a far more minimalist aesthetic than three-button watches, but we wouldn’t mind an extra programmable shortcut button, or a rotating crown like on the Michael Kors Access Grayson.Then there’s the gold ion-plated stainless steel case, and the dark gray ion-plated stainless steel case for $650 each (both with silicone straps); and finally a dark gray ion-plated stainless steel case and ion-plated stainless steel bracelet for $995, which also comes in silver (and silver strap) for $895.For the price of the Movado Connect, we would expect stronger glass covering the display, which we already managed to scratch after a brush with a wall.It should fare better with water thanks to an IPX8 water-resistance rating, which means your watch can be submerged underwater a little more than 3 feet.You can set a handful of your favorite watch faces here so you can quickly swap to them.
Chinese smartphone company, Huawei, has mocked Apple’s iPhone X, hinting that the device will be subject to unreliable facial recognition.Earlier this month, Apple flaunted the practicality of its FaceID facial recognition feature but Huawei rubbing salt into the wounds after earlier this month dethroning Apple as the world’s second largest smartphone maker, is throwing uncertainty about the effectiveness of the security test.On Facebook, the company released a video showing an unhappy clown emoji fail to assumedly unlock its own phone.A caption accompanying the video reads: “Let’s face it, facial recognition isn’t for everyone.”Of course, it is perhaps reasonable to point out that one could have difficulty accessing their smartphone if they are completely made-up as a clown.Further to this on Twitter, it urged mobile lovers to 'Take the Next Step' and pick up its Mate10 flagship device.
light waves containing the information is converted into sound waves for the chip and back to the first time.according to the researchers, this is information technology a breakthrough.for Example, the flash shows first light and sound will follow.Now scientists have been transformed into this thing for the first time an electronic scale.In the light are stored as the voice of the computer chip and then changed back into light.Method to open information technology in new doors, because if we want to move from the current, weak power of computers to move forward, is to use micro data machines, that carry information about electrons instead of light.
iOS 11 is finally upon us, which means you should be getting ready to install Apple’s new mobile operating system on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.Before you do, however, you should know that iOS 11 is an app breaker.With iOS 11, Apple is dropping 32-bit app support.That means all the old apps that were not updated to 64-bit since Apple introduced the iPhone 5s in 2013 will no longer run on any device upgraded to iOS 11.If you’re worried that some of the favorite apps won’t make the jump to iOS 11, you shouldn’t be.Either developers will finally update them to 64-bit shortly, or you should really find alternatives.

A long time ago in the mid 1950’s, Robert Heinlein wrote a story called “A Door into Summer” in which a competent mechanical engineer hooked up some “Thorsen tubes” for pattern matching memory and some “side circuits to add judgment” and spawned an entire industry of intelligent robots.It may have seemed plausible in 1956, but by 1969 it was clear it wouldn’t happen in 1970.| Cut to the key news and issues in cutting-edge enterprise technology with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]I am happy to say that this situation has changed dramatically.After seeing a deep learning presentation by Google engineers from the TensorFlow team, Ian got cracking and built just such a system.He was able to do this by starting with a partial model known as Inception-v3 and training it to the task of blue jay spotting with a few thousand new images taken by a webcam in his chicken coop.
Hundreds of AT wireless workers and members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) will protest outside the launch of the iPhone 8 at Apple HQ on Tuesday, we were told."Marking the start of a critical sales period that's expected to bring in billions for the telecom giant, workers are calling out AT's pay cuts for its retail employees and the company's rampant outsourcing and offshoring that undermine their job security and ability to provide quality customer service," the Communications Workers of America said in a press statement.Over the years, AT has increasingly handed over the operations of its retail operations to third-party dealers that now represent over 60 percent of all AT branded stores.On top of this, AT retail employees allege that they are seeing their pay decline by thousands of dollars because the company manipulates their commission structure.
The agreement was the unanticipated fruit of an attempt by the French Foreign Minister, Aristide Briand, to negotiate a bilateral treaty with the United States in which each nation would renounce the use of war as an instrument of policy toward the other.That’s because the treaty went into effect on July 24, 1929, after which the following occurred: Japan invaded Manchuria (1931); Italy invaded Ethiopia (1935); Japan invaded China (1937); Germany invaded Poland (1939); the Soviet Union invaded Finland (1939); Germany invaded Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and France and attacked Great Britain (1940); and Japan attacked the United States (1941), culminating in a global war that produced the atomic bomb and more than sixty million deaths.When goods are the end products of a worldwide chain of manufacture and distribution, a nation that goes to war risks cutting itself off from vital resources.In their view, the signing of the Kellogg-Briand Pact was not a Dr. Seuss parable with funny characters in striped trousers and top hats.Isn’t the Kellogg-Briand Pact just a case of post hoc ergo propter hoc—an exercise in feel-good diplomacy that happened to find confirmation many years later in a state of global affairs made possible by other means?They include the nineteenth-century Japanese philosopher and government official Nishi Amane; the brilliant academic rivals Hans Kelsen, an Austrian Jew, and Carl Schmitt, a book-burning Nazi; the American lawyer Salmon Levinson, who began the outlawry movement in the nineteen-twenties and then got written out of its history by men with bigger egos; and the Czech émigré Bohuslav Ečer and the Galician émigré Hersch Lauterpacht, who helped formulate the arguments that made possible the prosecution of Nazi leaders at Nuremberg and laid the groundwork for the United Nations.

Och diskanten är flera klasser bättre än det mesta annat i prisklassen.Saknar den djupaste basen och mellanregistret lever inte riktigt upp till den förnämliga diskanten.Högtalaren är precis tillräckligt hög för att titta över kanten på soffryggen och har elementen i öronhöjd.Domediskanten arbetar ner till baselementets delningsfrekvens vid 2,4 kHz och från 14 kHz och uppåt hjälper banddiskanten till med att ge extra upplösning och luft i toppen.Kabinettet är läckert utfört utan att gå till kostsamma ytterligheter och den tumstjocka, högglanslackade frontplattan av MDF ger elementen ett vibrationsfritt fundament.Med en känslighet på 88 dB och ett enda, lätt baselement bör Opticon 5 vara relativt lätt att använda även med mindre förstärkare.
