(University of California - Berkeley) Removing carbon dioxide from power plant emissions is ever more urgent to limit the damage from climate change. UC Berkeley chemists working with ExxonMobil have come up with an efficient and less expensive technique for removing CO2 from natural gas plant emissions. The technique could be tweaked for more polluting plants that use coal. The chemists took a magnesium-based metal-organic framework and added a tetraamine that catalyzes a CO2 polymer easily removed by low-temperature steam.

Ransomware is a big business for criminals and painfully expensive for companies.More and more cities and local governments around the world have become a hot target, with hackers shutting down government services, hospitals, blue light services, schools and universities.As a result, hospitals are halting admissions of new patients, first responders are slower to respond to distress calls, city services are interrupted, and schools are suspending classes.Both the US and UK have seen a surge in malware incidents, and as we venture into 2020 the trend will undoubtedly continue as hackers exploit common vulnerabilities of regional and local governments and education authorities with limited budgets and easy access to affordable cyber insurance.Most local governments are forced to assign IT budgets and resources to improve services through next-generation technologies like 5G networks, IoT, and cloud computing.In the process, their operations and data are becoming more connected through local and global networks, and their IT professionals are overwhelmed by IT data regulations and demand for innovation.
MINNEAPOLIS – “This reminds me of one of the old Apple events,” Apple’s one-time product manager of automation technologies, Sal Soghoian said as we entered the opening Jamf keynote speech at JNUC 2019 earlier this week.These are professional Mac admins, enterprise IT support staff, enterprise-focused software developers, managers, purchasers, CIOs, CTOs and others who now realize that Apple's foot print is seriously growing in the enterprise.They also completely justify the vision Jamf founder Zach Halmstad showed when he decided to launch the company back in 2002, when the iPod was still young and then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs had yet to freeze Hell over with iTunes for Windows.This energy reflects the focus of the event, but also the growing size of the Apple enterprise market and the fast-growing opportunities show attendees are already seeing in that market.This energy extends to include the many partners and enterprise/education-focused software vendors who exhibited here.To illustrate this, here is a short (incomplete and randomly chosen) selection of the many exhibitors attending the show:
Based on the results of a survey of 5,000 Tesla Model 3 owners, Bloomberg concluded that BMW is more vulnerable to competition from Tesla than any other automaker.More respondents traded in BMW vehicles, as a proportion of the company's US market share, for their Model 3 than vehicles from any other brand.And respondents traded in the BMW 3 Series sedan more than any other vehicle aside from the Toyota Prius.While the Model 3 has outsold the 3 Series in the US, BMW still generates higher overall sales and profit margins than Tesla, which has not yet earned an annual profit.Sign up for Business Insider's transportation newsletter, Shifting Gears, to get more stories like this in your inbox.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Loop Returns, the startup that helps brands handle returns from online purchases, has today announced the close of a $10 million Series A funding round led by FirstMark Capital.Loop started when Jonathan Poma, a cofounder and COO and President, was working at an agency and consulting with a big Shopify brand on how to improve their system for returns and exchanges.If an exchange isn’t in the cards, Loop will ask the customer if they’d prefer credit with this brand over a straight-up refund.The goal, according to Poma and Morgan, is to turn the point of return into a moment where brands can create a life-loyal customer when handled quickly and properly.The more we shop online, the more brands extend themselves financially, and returns are a big part of that.Returns account for 20 to 30 percent of ecommerce sales, which can become a terrible financial burden on a growing direct-to-consumer brand.

Here's one of those news stories ripe for automation, as we can report once again that [UK infrastructure project] has been delayed until [date] and will cost at least [£x m/b] more than initially expected.The UK infrastructure project here is Crossrail, which we'll continue calling Crossrail until at least the 2040s no matter how many signs Transport for London puts up saying it's the Elizabeth Line from now.Management has said that the full opening of the critical central section of London's new tube line will not happen in 2020, as was previously wildly optimistically hoped, and has now been given a vague timeslot of "as soon as practically possible" in the year 2021.At one point in the distant past it was supposed to be open in 2018, and was also supposed to cost quite a bit less than £18bn, with new cost "overruns" discovered today adding as much as £650m to the price of getting all the middle bit in the city up and running.The bulk of the delay this time is being blamed on the "software development for the signalling and train systems" and safety approvals processes, although the positive news is that test runs running over the full line should start in 2020, so it will happen at some point and is not going to be revoked, backfilled and forgotten about.
