There was stupid man in Kokuza,
Got a letter by boss from yakuza
And was badly surprized:
"Fingerprint compromized,
To revoke it, I come to Kokuza"

Русский вариант предложил Арсений Цаплев, но надо будет свой придумать:
Жил да был самурай из Кокудза
Он работал кассиром в якудза
Но сглупил перед боссом:
Отпечаток отозван
И за ним уже едут в Кокудза

A new feature baked into iOS 11 lets you quickly disable Touch ID, which could come in handy if you're ever in a situation where someone (a cop) might force you to unlock your device. Cult of Mac reports: To temporarily disable Touch ID, you simply press the power button quickly five times. This presents you with the "Emergency SOS" option, which you can swipe to call the emergency services. It also prevents your iPhone from being unlocked without the passcode. Until now, there were other ways to temporarily disable Touch ID, but they weren't quick and simply. You either had to restart your iPhone, let it sit idle for a few days until Touch ID was temporarily disabled by itself, or scan the wrong finger several times. The police, or any government agency, cannot force you to hand over your iPhone's passcode. However, they can force you to unlock your device with your fingerprint. That doesn't work if your fingerprint scanner has been disabled.

Вот есть у Скади "Лэ о Лэйтиан", по мотивам, как несложно понять, "Сильмариллиона". Задумывалось и писалось это, видимо, как спектакль для нескольких человек (по ролям, все такое), но пока Скади исполняет его соло. Есть и диск, были и живые исполнения.

И вот теперь "группа лиц" а Красноярске решила таки поставить аудиоспектакль. Рок-мюзикл "Берен и Лютиэн". ""Берен и Лютиэн" - первый в России дарк-рок-мюзикл. Работу над ним ведёт вокально-театральный коллектив из Красноярска: музыкальный театр "Аман".
Мы нацелены на создание полной аудиоверсии произведения высшего качества." ( https://vk.com/musical_beren_luthien ).

Любопытно, что у них получится. Обещают даже какие-то дополнения, причем написанные Скади же.

"Сегодня, 17 августа, произошло печальное событие для Рунета: На 52-м году жизни скончался Чернов Андрей Александрович — программист, благодаря которому жители стран СНГ получили в начале девяностых возможность набирать текст на русском языке в глобальной Сети.




Андрей Чернов являлся автором кодировки KOI8-R, которая поддерживала ввод кириллических символов. Создание этой кодировки ознаменовало появление Рунета. Однако, KOI8-R — далеко не единственное, что сделал ache (именно под этим никнеймом он был известен сообществу программистов) для развития сферы IT. Чернов принимал участие в таких важных событиях для Рунета, которые до сих пор удивляют и одновременно вызывают зависть многих программистов:


В 80-х Чернов был одним из членов коллектива разработчиков советских операционных систем ДЕМОС и МНОС, которые разрабатывались в Институте атомной энергии имени И. В. Курчатова.


В 90-х ache работал в компании «Демос», которая была первым российским интернет-провайдером. Этот период является особенно важным для сферы IT в России. Именно в августе 1990 года Россия впервые подключилась к компьютерам в городе Хельсинки, а в сентябре того же года появился первый домен — .su (Soviet Union). Так началась история Рунета как части всемирной Сети. ache был непосредственным участником запуска и наладки первого интернет-канала между Россией и странами запада.


В 1992 до 2001 годах Чернов разработал и поддерживал почтовый клиент UUPC/@.


В 1992-1996 годах занялся локализацией шифровальной системы PGP совместно с Сушковым.


В 1994 году создал перекодировщик текстовых файлов TODOS с CP866, который использовался в ОС MS-DOS.


В 1993-2000 годах был членом FreeBSD Core Team, которая руководила разработкой FreeBSD. Он был единственным русскоязычным участником в совете проекта.


Родные и близкие программиста сообщили в соцсетях, что он несколько лет сильно болел и почти не выходил из дома.


Прощание с выдающимся программистом пройдёт 19 августа в крематории Горбрус в 14:00, г. Балашиха, Носовихинское шоссе, ул. Окольная, владение 2.


Он был настоящим программистом, а настоящее программирование — далеко не самый простой процесс. Программирование — это скучно, однако благодаря таким личностям, как Чернов, Интернет и IT-сфера в общем становятся более удобными и доступными для рядового пользователя. Именно такие люди, как Андрей Чернов, относятся к «двигателям» прогресса, они — источники мотивации молодого поколения, которое, возможно, будет совершать такие же великие и интересные дела, как те, что вершили отцы IT на постсоветском пространстве."

Using a new kind of immunotherapy treatment, Australian researchers have managed to cure a majority of the children in their study suffering from a peanut allergy. "The desensitization to peanuts persisted for up to four years after treatment," reports The Guardian. From the report: Tang, an immunologist and allergist, pioneered a new form of treatment that combines a probiotic with peanut oral immunotherapy, known as PPOIT. Instead of avoiding the allergen, the treatment is designed to reprogram the immune system's response to peanuts and eventually develop a tolerance. It's thought that combining the probiotic with the immunotherapy gives the immune system the "nudge" it needs to do this, according to Tang. Forty-eight children were enrolled in the PPOIT trial and were randomly given either a combination of the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus with peanut protein in increasing amounts, or a placebo, once daily for 18 months. At the end of the original trial in 2013, 82% of children who received the immunotherapy treatment were deemed tolerant to peanuts compared with just 4% in the placebo group. Four years later, the majority of the children who gained initial tolerance were still eating peanuts as part of their normal diet and 70% passed a further challenge test to confirm long-term tolerance. The results have been published in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health.

В одной новости столько всего... И судьбы людей, и отрасли, и космонавтики в целом.

«Российское предприятие-разработчик бортовых систем автоматического управления и навигации авиационными и космическими летательными аппаратами ФГУП «Московское опытно-конструкторское бюро «Марс» будет передана из ведения госкорпорации «Роскосмос» в состав госкорпорации «Росатом», соответствующий проект президентского указа опубликован в четверг на официальном портале проектов правовых актов.
МОКБ «Марс» было создано в 1955 году как специализированная научно-исследовательская организация по разработке и изготовлению астронавигационных систем управления.
На предприятии в разные годы были созданы астронавигационные системы управления для межконтинентальной крылатой ракеты «Буря», стратегических бомбардировщиков Ту-95М, Ту-160, система автоматической посадки орбитального корабля «Буран», системы управления разгонным блоком «Бриз-М» для ракет-носителей «Протон-К», «Протон-М». Также созданы системы управления для многих спутников».

Источник

***

МОКБ «Марс» один из важнейших партнёров ЦиХа в Москве, его передача очень красноречива по поводу будущего ЦиХа и ракеты «Протон-М» (которая совершила на днях свой сотый полёт).

Даже не знаю, поздравлять ли Катю ([livejournal.com profile] pau4ik), что она с коллегами скоро не будут входить в те «злополучные» 200 тыс сотрудников предприятий Роскосмоса?

В этой новости самое прекрасное то, что понимаешь, что никто тебе, гражданину и налогоплательщику, не объяснит, почему специализированная научно-исследовательская организация по разработке и изготовлению астронавигационных систем управления отдаётся в госкорпорацию «Росатом». Я, конечно, понимаю, что для сотрудников это может оказаться плюсом и спасти организацию это может, наверное (а может и нет), но почему же не объяснить, а просто поставить перед фактом?

New submitter TheCoroner writes: A paper in Nature Energy suggests that the benefits we receive from moving to renewables like wind and solar that reduce air pollution exceed the cost of the subsidies required to make them competitive with traditional fossil fuels. Ars Technica reports: "Berkeley environmental engineer Dev Millstein and his colleagues estimate that between 3,000 and 12,700 premature deaths have been averted because of air quality benefits over the last decade or so, creating a total economic benefit between $30 billion and $113 billion. The benefits from wind work out to be more than 7 cents per kilowatt-hour, which is more than unsubsidized wind energy generally costs. This study ambitiously tries to estimate the benefits from emissions that were avoided because of the increase in wind and solar energy from 2007 through 2015, and to do so for the whole of the U.S. Millstein and colleagues looked at carbon emissions, as well as sulphur dioxides, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter, all of which contribute to poor air quality. There are other factors that also need to be considered. A rise in renewables isn't the only thing that has been changing in the energy sector: fuel costs and regulation have also played a role. How much of the benefit can be attributed to wind and solar power, and how much to other changes? The researchers used models that track the benefits attributable to renewable power as a proportion of the total reduction in emissions.

An anonymous reader shares a report from Variety: Videos are coming to Reddit, thanks to a new feature that allows users to upload video clips directly to the service. Reddit rolled out the new video feature Tuesday after testing it with around 200 communities over the past couple of weeks. Reddit users are now able to upload videos of up to 15 minutes in length, with file sizes being limited to 1 gigabyte. Users will be able to upload videos via Reddit's website and its mobile apps for iOS and Android, with the latter offering basic trimming functionality as well. And, in keeping with the spirit of the site, Reddit is also offering a conversion tool to turn videos into animated Gifs. Videos are being displayed persistently, or pinned, meaning that users can scroll through the comments while the video keeps playing in the corner of their screen. And community moderators can opt not to allow videos in their Subreddits at all, with Le arguing that some discussion-heavy Subreddits may decide that the format just doesn't work for them.

After the PlayStation 4's 5.0 update was leaked last week, Sony decided to officially reveal what's coming in the update. GameSpot highlights the new features in their report: Some of the enhancements center around streaming using the PS4's built-in broadcasting capabilities. PS4 Pro users will be able to stream in 1080p and 60 FPS, provided their connection is strong enough, and PSVR users will be able to see new messages and comments coming through while broadcasting. PSVR is also adding 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound support. Next up, the PS4's Friends List is being updated with greater management tools, such as the ability to set up separate lists of friends. You'll be able to create a list of all the people you play Destiny with and send them all an invite, for example. This feature replaces the old Favorite Groups tab. In another move to help reduce the amount of time spent in menus, the Quick Menu is being updated to have more options. For example, you'll be able to check on download progress and see new party invites. You can also leave a party from within that menu and see your current Spotify playlist. Notifications are also being improved when watching films and TV, as you can now disable message and other notification pop-ups while watching media. You can also change how much of a message is displayed, as well as its color, when playing or watching any form of content. Finally, Parental Control features are being overhauled in favor of what Sony calls "Family on PSN." This replaces the old Master/Sub account system; instead, one user is deemed the Family Manager, and they can set up other accounts and appoint them as a Parent/Guardian, Adult, or Child. Parents or Guardians can restrict Child accounts in their "use of online features and communication with other players, set restrictions for games, restrict the use of the internet browser, and set spending limits for PlayStation Store." Note that Sony says the first time any North American user tries to set up an Adult account, they will be charged $0.50 "to verify that you are an adult."

schwit1 shares a report from The Hill: A hacker in Ukraine who goes by the online alias "Profexer" is cooperating with the FBI in its investigation of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, The New York Times is reporting. Profexer, whose real identity is unknown, wrote and sold malware on the dark web. The intelligence community publicly identified code he had written as a tool used in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee ahead of last year's presidential election. The hacker's activity on the web came to a halt shortly after the malware was identified. The New York Times, citing Ukrainian police, reported Wednesday that the individual turned himself into the FBI earlier this year and became a witness for the bureau in its investigation. FBI investigators are probing Russian interference efforts and whether there was coordination between associates of President Trump's campaign and Moscow. Special counsel Robert Mueller is heading the investigation.

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: A patent published today explains how a phone could identify cracks on its touchscreen and then apply heat to the area in an effort to slightly repair the damage. The process relies on something called "shape memory polymer," a material that can apparently become deformed and then recovered through thermal cycling. Thermal cycling involves changing the temperature of the material rapidly. This material could be used over an LCD or LED display with a capacitive touch sensor layered in, as well. Although the phone could heat the polymer in order to restore it, a user's body heat can be used, too.

In a blog post, Facebook announced that it has started downranking the News Feed presence of links that display a fake play button in the preview image, as well as videos that are actually just a static image uploaded as a video file. While Facebook won't completely delete these posts unless they violate its other policies, it will be decreasing the distribution of these stories. TechCrunch reports: Facebook has prohibited the use of fake play buttons in advertisements under its policy against depicting non-existent functionality for a few years, News Feed Product Manager Greg Marra tells me. But the scourage has remained in the News Feed. Facebook says that if publishers want to denote there's a video behind a link, they should indicate that through Open Graph meta tags. They could also use words like "Watch" or "Video" in the headline or description. Meanwhile, Facebook's emphasis on video in News Feed has inspired the new menace of publishers uploading a static image as a video to get more eyeballs. These static image videos will be downranked too. Facebook is using a "motion scoring" system that detects movement inside a video to classify and demote these clips.

According to iClarified, a hacker by name of "xerub" has posted the decryption key for Apple's Secure Enclave Processor (SEP) firmware. "The security coprocessor was introduced alongside the iPhone 5s and Touch ID," reports iClarified. "It performs secure services for the rest of the SOC and prevents the main processor from getting direct access to sensitive data. It runs its own operating system (SEPOS) which includes a kernel, drivers, services, and applications." From the report: The Secure Enclave is responsible for processing fingerprint data from the Touch ID sensor, determining if there is a match against registered fingerprints, and then enabling access or purchases on behalf of the user. Communication between the processor and the Touch ID sensor takes place over a serial peripheral interface bus. The processor forwards the data to the Secure Enclave but can't read it. It's encrypted and authenticated with a session key that is negotiated using the device's shared key that is provisioned for the Touch ID sensor and the Secure Enclave. The session key exchange uses AES key wrapping with both sides providing a random key that establishes the session key and uses AES-CCM transport encryption. Today, xerub announced the decryption key "is fully grown." You can use img4lib to decrypt the firmware and xerub's SEP firmware split tool to process. Decryption of the SEP Firmware will make it easier for hackers and security researchers to comb through the SEP for vulnerabilities.

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: AT&T has lost a court case in which it tried to stall construction by Google Fiber in Louisville, Kentucky. AT&T sued the local government in Louisville and Jefferson County in February 2016 to stop a One Touch Make Ready Ordinance designed to give Google Fiber and other new ISPs quicker access to utility poles. But yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge David Hale dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice, saying AT&T's claims that the ordinance is invalid are false. "We are currently reviewing the decision and our next steps," AT&T said when contacted by Ars today. One Touch Make Ready rules let ISPs make all of the necessary wire adjustments on utility poles themselves instead of having to wait for other providers like AT&T to send work crews to move their own wires. Without One Touch Make Ready rules, the pole attachment process can cause delays of months before new ISPs can install service to homes. Google Fiber has continued construction in Louisville despite the lawsuit and staff cuts that affected deployments in other cities.

From a new published paper in Scientific Report by Bjorn C. G. Karlsson and Ran Friedman: Despite the growing knowledge of the nature of water-alcohol mixtures on a molecular level, much less is known on the interaction of water, alcohol and small solutes. In particular, the nature of the interaction between the solvent and taste-carrying molecules, such as guaiacol, is not known. To address this gap, we used MD simulations to study the distribution of guaiacol in water-alcohol mixtures of different concentrations. Our simulations revealed that guaiacol is present at the air-liquid interface at ethanol concentrations that correspond to the alcohol content of bottled or diluted whiskies. Because the drink is consumed at the interface first, our findings help to understand why adding water to whisky helps to enhance its taste. A molecular understanding of the nature of taste compounds in water-alcohol mixtures allows for optimizing the taste of alcoholic spirits. [...] Overall, there is a fine balance between diluting the whisky to taste and diluting the whisky to waste.

An anonymous reader shares a report: For most of its 111-year history, Xerox has been known as one of the tech industry's most innovative companies. Now the legendary copier company is reinventing itself. In January, Xerox made the bold decision to split itself into two, spinning off its business services operations into a separate company called Conduent. And Jeffrey Jacobson, a Xerox tech executive, was tapped as Xerox's new CEO. Speaking with Fortune's Susie Gharib, Jacobson says Xerox is still "one of the top patent producing companies in the world" and he's counting on that scientific expertise to pivot the company to be a leader in digital print technology. "If I look at the things we're looking at with the Internet of things, artificial intelligence and bridging the digital and physical," he says, "that's what I think we'll be known for."
