EU-kommissionen planerar att pumpa in över fyra miljarder kronor för att stötta forskning inom it-säkerhet – och vill att branschen bidrar med tre gånger så mycket.EU-kommissionen är bekymrat över ekonomins sårbarhet inför cyberattacker, och varnar för att dessa kan underminera den digitala inre marknaden och hela ekonomin i stort.Nu vill de alltså se investeringar på totalt två miljarder dollar nästan 17 miljarder kronor – där de själva ska stå för 500 miljoner vilket motsvarar över fyra miljarder kronor .Investeringen är tänkt att främja gränsöverskridande forskning inom cybersäkerhet och för att stötta utvecklingen av säkerhetsprodukter och tjänster som är riktade mot energi, hälso- och sjukvård, transport och finans.Det här är inte första gången kommissionen försöker koordinera medlemstaternas säkerhetsstrategier inom it-området.Bildandet av it-säkerhetsmyndigheten Enisa och Europols EC 3 European Cyber crime center är tidigare steg i den riktningen.

These can in turn be loaded on 42 stations across the island. Two years ago there were only a handful of charging stations. - Solkompaniet is a fairly small company usually deals with solar cells. It is a great fun way to work for change, to give everyone the chance to open their eyes to electric cars, says Jon Malmsten. Then there were ten Renault Twizy and ten major electric cars for hire at the two companies. As many as 96 percent of those who rented electric car would be willing to do it again, and the same number can recommend others to rent electric car.

The sport of cycling has become an arms race.If you ve read our recent cover story, you ll know about Team Sky s strategy of aggregating marginal gains , and the evolving 74-point checklist drawn up by Chris Froome s coach, Tim Kerrison, that encapsulates its understanding of what it takes to win.Even at an amateur level, a €35.7 billion global industry has developed to provide riders with evermore sophisticated bikes with carbon-fibre frames, electronic gear shifters, hidden brake callipers, and more.As recently as this year s Giro d Italia in May, TV commentators were left using rough estimates of how many seconds separated riders at a given moment in the race.When the riders depart from Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy on Saturday July 2 for the first day of the three-week event, every one of the 198 bikes in the peloton will be fitted with a device designed and developed by Dimension Data.It s a GPS telemetry device, explained the company s sports practice executive, Adam Foster.

You might joke that Netflix is taking over the world, but to RussianCulture Minister Vladimir Medinsky, it is no joke.In an interview withnews service The Rambler, translated by The Moscow Times, Medinsky suggested that the US government is funneling money to exert American power across the globe."The White House fully understands that through Netflix, they can get into every home, every television and then - into every head, Medinsky said," according to The Moscow Times."Do you think that these gigantic startups get going all by themselves?That if a student is sitting there with an idea that billions of dollars come raining down?But Medinsky seems to also fundamentally not believe that the Silicon Valley system of venture capital could exist.That said, if the goal of Netflix is to exert control over Russian minds, it might not be doing a particularly good job.Netflix launched in Russia in January, and research from UBS in April suggested that interest in the service might be lackluster.Here is a look at how downloads for Netflix's app fell off after its Russia launch:UBSNOW WATCH: How to find Netflix s secret categoriesLoading video...

Well, with 5.0, not only is it the fastest Dolphin yet, a lot of those cool extras that could only be done on an emulator should be working.Depth matrix shader accuracy has been improved, which allowed textures in the distance to have depth and look more accurate when approaching.As Dolphin continued through its years of development, there were some games that notoriously did not work correctly.Some thought that emulating zfreeze would be impossible.There are a slew of other fixes, but for competitive gamers, the increased Netplay performance is a godsend.Because the GameCube had very limited network access, the only way to play Melee was at a friend s house.

How might Hillary Clinton help create new jobs if she becomes president?Clinton s tech and innovation agenda, released Tuesday, includes a plan to give entrepreneurs time to get their businesses off the ground by delaying their federal school-loan payments for up to three years.Those who start businesses in distressed communities will get a chance to have up to $17,500 in school loans forgiven after five years.The Democratic presidential candidate s campaign called her tech agenda a core component of the jobs plan she will put forward in the first 100 days of her Administration, along with investments in infrastructure, clean energy and manufacturing.Clinton s tech platform also includes her previously mentioned goal of bringing broadband access to every U.S. household by 2020; expanding funding for President Obama s computer science education initiative; and engaging the private sector to train and recruit 50,000 computer science teachers.In addition, Clinton gives a nod to immigration reform that the tech industry advocates: As part of comprehensive immigration reform, Hillary would staple a green card to STEM masters and PhDs from accredited institutions, and support visas that allow top entrepreneurs from abroad to come to the U.S., build companies, and create jobs for American workers.The former secretary of state also expressed support for other issues near and dear to tech s heart, including net neutrality and patent reform.Clinton s campaign statement did not include details about how her plans would be funded.Early industry reaction to the plan, which the candidate is scheduled to speak about today in Denver and Los Angeles, is mostly positive.We urge the Clinton campaign to do more to recognize Americans serious concerns about unchecked spying and surveillance, Craig Aaron, president of Free Press Action Fund, said in an emailed statement.The unveiling of Clinton s tech plan comes after last week s announcement that she has picked up endorsements from tech industry executives including Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and more.Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has not yet unveiled a technology agenda.Photo: Hillary Clinton at the Good Day Cafe in Vallejo, Calif., on June 5, 2016.

That put her on an equal footing with the multibillion-dollar software giant, giving her a fair fight.Goldstein told us "Microsoft needed to be held accountable for its negligence regarding the forced Windows 10 upgrade, which rendered many users' computers useless."This update caused the Windows 7 Home Premium PC to crash and, even when it booted back up, made it "mostly unusable."After Comcast told her the problem was entirely at her end, she contacted Microsoft.Goldstein believes her PC – unbeknownst to her – was enrolled in the Windows 10 beta program, meaning she was left with broken unfinished code that could not be uninstalled from her Windows 7 Home Premium system.In October, she gave up and bought a new laptop.

You could get a good night's sleep, something that refreshes energy levels, is essential for memory, and makes it significantly easier to focus.But there's one substance that a recent review published in the journal European Neuropsychopharmacology found actually does improve attention, memory, learning, and other cognitive abilities - modafinil.Mathematician Paul Erdős had such a serious relationship with amphetamines that when he once stopped taking them for a month to win a $500 bet, he immediately got back on drugs afterwards.How modafinil affects your brain Battleday and Brem reviewed 24 studies that assessed how modafinil affected healthy non-sleep deprived people's minds they considered 267 studies, but rejected those that weren't placebo controlled, used unhealthy subjects, or tested animals and not people .Funding is scarce for drugs that help healthy people Interestingly, Battleday and Brem point out that there isn't much research on cognitive enhancement for healthy people and that there's a lack of funding and perhaps even a bit of a taboo on studying the topic.Of prescription stimulants, they say that the cognitive effects appear limited for healthy people.

BERLIN/FRANKFURT Reuters — German robotics maker Kuka is on the brink of agreeing to an investor agreement with Chinese bidder Midea that includes a long-term commitment to existing headquarters, factories and jobs, a source close to the negotiations said.Kuka needs to decide in the coming week whether it wants to recommend the acceptance of Midea s 4.5 billion euro $4.99 billion bid, the biggest German industrial technology company to be targeted by a Chinese buyer in a wave of recent deals.The source told Reuters that there had been a breakthrough in negotiations between Kuka and Midea, with the results presented to a meeting of the supervisory board on Saturday.Now the details just need to be finalised so that the agreement can be signed in the coming days, the source said.The agreement to maintain the current headquarters and maintain factories and employees should run until 2023, the source added.Kuka was not immediately available to commentThe Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported that Midea had offered Kika guarantees including the independence of the company s management and its listing in Frankfurt.News of Midea s bid for Kuka last month caused a furor among German politicians, though Midea has since said it would allow Kuka to operate independently and help it expand in China.On a visit to Beijing this month, Chancellor Angela Merkel signaled that she would not try to prevent a takeover but also left the door open to German firms making a counter-offer.However, no potential German or European rival bidder has emerged at this stage.Reporting by Alexander Hübner and Joern Poltz, writing by Emma Thomasson,; Editing by Stephen Powell

A face mask is placed on the statue of Queen Victoria opposite Buckingham Palace by Greenpeace protesters on April 18, 2016 to demonstrate against air pollution in Britain.There is one immediate impact though, right here, right now: The crashing financial markets will damage the huge investments needed to create a cleaner and safer environment and will dent the nation s fast-growing green economy, one economic sector where the UK could lead.From the air we breathe to the food we eat to the climate we live in, how we protect and enhance the environment underpins the healthy and happy lives we all aspire to, now and for generations to come.Ukip s Nigel Farage, the politician who did more than anyone to force the EU referendum, doesn t even think climate change is a problem and wants to scrap pollution limits on power stations.Earlier legal action from the EU forced the UK to clean up its sewage-strewn beaches, while many of the protections for nature and wildlife across the nation stem from EU rules.The UK s targets for renewable energy were agreed in Brussels but leaving the EU puts them into limbo too.

The ITC ruled in Arista s favor on two other features, finding that they don t infringe Cisco s patents.In February, an ITC administrative law judge ruled in favor of Arista on two of four features, a ruling that was subject to the final determination announced Thursday.Arista previously released a version of its software with design-arounds that it believes address the ITC s findings.Any exclusion order may be blocked by President Barack Obama or overruled by an appeals court.Cisco, the biggest maker of networking gear, accused Arista of violating its patents and copyrights in December 2014 in federal court as well as at the ITC.Some of the allegations involve the method used to type commands to program Cisco hardware—known as the command line interface, or CLI—that is used by Arista and some other competitors.

SAO PAULO Reuters - Brazil's biggest bankruptcy filing ever is sending shockwaves far beyond the recession-hit country's borders as operator Oi SA seeks creditor protection from global telecoms suppliers and export banks around the world.Oi is seeking protection on over 500 million reais $150 million of accounts payable to international providers from Nokia Corp and Ericsson to IBM Corp and Alcatel-Lucent SA, according to court documents reviewed by Reuters.That cycle came crashing to a close this week with Oi's record bankruptcy filing in a Rio de Janeiro court, punctuating the broader slump in a sector curtailing investments to protect profits amid Brazil's worst economic recession since the 1930s."The focus is on keeping the company working.Oi has made no changes to its capital spending plans and is doing everything it can to keep operations running normally, said the source, who asked not to be named given the legal proceedings under way.Nokia's receivables are more than twice the 53 million reais due to Chinese runner-up Huawei Technologies Co Ltd HWT.UL .

Hank Uberol is uniting banks and regulators to send payments around the world in a more transparent way.The CEO of Earthport, speaking at WIRED Money, has created an API that allows its clients to connect to and send money to banks easily."The way money has traditionally been sent across borders is a patchwork of bank-to-bank, currency-to-currency relationships: one bank sends to another, which sends to another, which sends to another," the company says.Uberol likens his company's business model to one that solves the problems faced by emerging companies in different industries several decades ago."If you wanted to build a global manufacturing business where you wanted to have suppliers in one part of the world, manufacturers in another and customers in a third, you have to be a fairly large complex organisation," he says.When the firm was creating its platform, Uberol says it intended to focus on mid-sized banks and financial institutions as it thought larger ones would have their own systems in place.

If accurate, you could expect an exodus of US services from the country.This Russian-language report, once the Vulture South hack was able to untangle translations like proposed a fine messenger , sets down the basics: those providing messaging applications like WhatsApp and Telegram would face fines if they can't provide users' messages to the FSB.It's proposed as an amendment to anti-terror laws proposed by deputy Irina Yarovaya and senator Viktor Ozerov, and has already been okayed by the Duma Committee for Security and Anti-Corruption.Russian newsagency Tass in Russian here says the law would impose a fine of a million roubles roughly US$15,000 if an app's owner declined to decrypt messages.Citizens using the apps and refusing to let security officials read their messages would be subject to fines of up to 3,000 roubles, officials could be fined up to 5,000 roubles, and legal entities as much as 50,000 roubles.If the law passed, it would set the likes of Facebook on yet another collision course with governments.

If you happen to be a part of the Windows Insider program and own a Lumia 650, 950, or 950XL, you ll finally be able to tap to pay thanks to a new version of the Wallet app, which makes use of the NFC chip in your phone to pay at stores that offer mobile payments.Don t, however, expect to be able to make full use of the app just yet — even if you re in the Windows Insider program, you ll also have to be in the U.S., and use one of the few cards currently supported.Not only that, but you ll also have to deal with using potentially buggy software, which might make you a little nervous considering the sensitivity of the information stored in the app.Of course, it s nice that Microsoft is finally thinking about mobile payments, but it s still not known when the feature will be brought to those outside of the Windows Insider program.As Engadget notes, however, it wouldn t be that much of a surprise to see the feature rolled out to consumers in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to be released during the summer.Still, even when it is released to the public it will likely take a while before there are a ton of partners onboard as far as cards go, and it will only work with phones that have an NFC chip.

The nuclear-powered icebreaker Arktika can handle up to three meters thick ice. photographer: Sputnik Russia's and the world's largest icebreaker has now been christened at a shipyard in St. Petersburg. With a length of 173 meters and the displacement of 33,540 tons, it is the world's largest icebreaker. The energy comes from two nuclear reactors that provide 175 MW, which gives a top speed of 22 knots and force to break the three-meter thick ice, writes Maritime Professional. Russia today has more icebreakers than all other countries combined, and the new ship will among other things assist tankers along the Northern Sea Route north of Russia with destination Asia. The entire project, which began in 2013 is expected to cost about the equivalent of approximately 16 billion.

Back in September of 2015, physicists operating the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory or LIGO for short detected the first round of gravitational waves seemingly proving Einstein's theory of General Relativity."By the end of the decade we'll probably be able to detect at least one gravitational wave event per month," Ken Strain, professor of physics at University of Glasgow involved in upgrading LIGO, told The Register.The mirror suspension system was later updated with four wires made out of ultrapure fused silica glass worth half a million dollars each.Those wires are less susceptible to vibrations allowing the instrument to detect the smallest of gravitational wave vibrations.Scientists hope that once eLISA launches in 2034 it will help them to learn how black holes form and how galaxies evolve."If we can trace back the origins and distances of supermassive black holes, we might get more information on how the universe is expanding.

Now that Blizzard's new FPS hit Overwatch has been out for a few weeks and dug its claws into players, the developer has outlined what's coming down the pipeline over the next year in terms of new content and features.In a post on the Battle.net forums, game director Jeff Kaplan wrote about Competitive Play modes, new characters and maps, as well confirmed that these future additions will be part of free updates.While there's still no firm release date, Competitive Play is still the developer's main focus right now.This is a different section of multiplayer aimed at serious FPS players who are more interested in ranked matches than overall casual play.The developer is currently considering a Public Test Realm so the mode can be tested in a larger environment before a final release, but even then they expect the "first few seasons will require iteration on the feature," meaning there are likely to be tweaks and adjustments along the way.While the update was relatively light on details and specifics, this kind of information is pretty standard for the traditionally secretive Blizzard.

What would a Trump presidency look like?many of us have been wondering, in decreasingly hypothetical terms.Now, in all its bubblegum-tinted glory, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if elected, Donald J. Trump will pilot an enormous mecha in his likeness, use it to construct his long-threatened wall, and then destroy both the wall and the planet it was built on with a sweet-as-hell laser blast.Yes this video is wonderfully weird and holy shit, check out those production values but it was not created in a vacuum.Unless you re counting the vacuum of space, where this video, and Democracy as we know it, both end.Mike Diva has also created a number of Vaporwave-inspired videos, as well as the excellent short film GRRL SCOUTS, which you ought to stuff into your brain at your earliest convenience.
