(Almaty, Kazakhstan—July 10, 2018) The Chinese government has conducted further targeting of Xinjiang Muslims, their family members recently revealed.

49 year-old Teleu Wailibek was born in Huoenerkai Village, Zhaosu County, Ili Kazakh Autonomous Region, Xinjiang. He immigrated to Kazakhstan in 2011 with his wife, Ayihan Nurehemaiti, and their two children. However, Nurehemaiti did not obtain Kazakh citizenship in 2013 along with the rest of her family, only a Kazakh green card. Walibek revealed that his wife, who was a teacher in Huoernerkai Village, was allowed to retire in 2011 on account of her deteriorating health. In October 2017, Ayihan’s former school called and she returned to China. The police then confiscated her Chinese passport and Kazakh green card. In response to her detainment, Wailibek stated, “It’s been eight months since my wife was detained in China. I haven’t heard from her.”

Wailibek has since contacted the Chinese government in an effort to get her released and returned to Kazakhstan reunite the separated family.

Kazakh citizen and Almaty resident Yahefu Nulahong’s father, Nulahong Kabe, was detained in Qitai County, Xinjiang, and spent three months in a “political training center.” While at the so-called political training center, Nulahong Kabe lived in a cell with more than 10 other prisoners, all of whom were Uyghurs.

“The political training center is in essence a prison,” Yahefu Nulahong said. “The guards beat you up no matter how old you are. In their eyes, you are not human. The prisoners have to recite articles by Confucius and study Chinese. They have to memorize the regulations on striking extreme religions even if they don’t speak Mandarin. The prisoners have to demonstrate their love to the Communist Party and the nation. They are transferred to a better cell after passing the exam. My father’s good at Chinese, so he was only detained for three months.”

Nulahong Kabe now has Kazakh citizenship along with his three children. Later on, Yahefu’s 57 year-old mother Ziyire Duonenbayi was detained in April 2017 in Qitai County and has not yet been reunited with her family.

An anonymous Kazakh in Almaty stated that the Xinjiang government forced minority language teachers to retire early after closing the schools dedicated to ethnic minorities. Retired teachers received a pension worth 60-70 percent of their original salaries. Younger teachers became guards, cleaners, and mechanics. The government also stopped paying teachers whose children were attending schools in Kazakhstan.

According to informed sources, the government of Dushanzi District, Karamay, Xinjiang arrested .he following Kazakhs: 1. Zhuomaert Nuersahat, 2. Kenjietayi Duisen, 3. Madan Walehan, 4. Kenjiebek Ilias. 5. Halibiyati Bayimaola, 6. Kamanayi Jietbai, 7. Halimujiang Hasen, 8. Kanjie, Lakan, 9. Selik Xielip. 10. Bolati Abudureheman. 11. Hali Helieli. 12. Ainiwar Halieli. 13. Pulati. 14. Tulsongul , 15. Gulia, 16. Hanixiayi , 17. Yiersihan, 18. Mulati, and 19. Guliziya Tisak.

According to informed sources, the first 10 people, the 18th person, and the 19th person on the above list were arrested because of their religious beliefs. Numbers 11-16 were arrested for travelling to Kazakhstan and staying for a long period of time. Currently, the aforementioned people are in “political training centers,” or a network of detention centers dedicated towards forcing ethnic minorities to learn Mandarin and Chinese policies while torturing them. The first 10 people have also been sentenced three to eight years in prison.

ChinaAid exposes the situations of those mentioned above in order to promote the rule of law, religious freedom, and human rights.

How have we measured the temperature of the ocean’s upper layer in the last 150 years? How does understanding physical processes and observational errors help to standardise climate data and understand climate change?

Why do we measure ocean temperature?

Convective clouds over Western Pacific

In the tropical atmosphere, tall clouds such as those shown in Figure 1 are governed by sea surface temperature, and one of the surprising hypotheses of climate change (known as the Thermostat Hypothesis) states that they, in turn, limit the maximum temperatures above the ocean by reflecting sunlight. These kinds of feedback loops between ocean temperature and other meteorological and oceanographic features, such as clouds, atmospheric circulation, ocean currents, and precipitation, are the reason why measuring sea surface temperature is an important element of today’s climate-change debate.

Sea surface temperature (SST) is also one of the climate indices with the longest histories of direct measurements. Because ocean makes up about 70% of the total Earth’s surface, changes in the temperature of its surface are a key factor for determining the global temperature of the planet’s surface.

Global changes in sea surface temperature

Global se-surface temperature distribution

The data are based on the measurements using the following instruments: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Moderate Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and Terra and Aqua and Advanced Microwave Spectroradiometer-EOS (AMSR-E). Source: PODAAC.

Sea surface temperature is also important in forecasting many atmospheric phenomena. Figure 3 shows the sea surface temperature distribution in December 2010 and in December 2015. There are visible differences on the Pacific between these two years.

The late 2010 – early 2011 season (on the left) was a period of La Niña, and the late 2015 – early 2016 season (on the right) was a period of a strong El Niño. During El Niño, the water temperature off the coast of South America is higher than during La Niña. Not only does it influence precipitation in South America, but it also affects the weather in the middle latitudes.

The occurrence of El Niño or La Niña can be diagnosed by indices based on the measurements of the ocean’s upper layer temperature.

Many details of oceanic flows are visible in the satellite images of sea surface temperature. In Figure 4, you can see large areas of warm water in the western Pacific and in the eastern Indian Ocean, which lead to high precipitation in Indonesia. In the eastern Pacific, a narrow swath of lower temperatures is marked as a “Cold tongue.” This is where the so-called Tropical Instability Waves develop.

Figure 5 shows the northern area of the Atlantic. In the blue frame, you can see the Gulf Stream, which carries warm water from the subtropics northwards, and then towards Europe, causing European winters to be warmer than in other areas on similar latitudes.

Measuring the ocean’s upper layer temperature is also important in forecasting tropical cyclones. In Figure 6, which shows the sea surface temperature distribution around the eye of hurricane Frances, you can see that the eye moves towards warmer areas, leaving a “cold trail” behind. The existence of such trails means that hurricanes draw a lot of their energy from the ocean, and then convert it to kinetic energy of the winds through condensation of water vapour. A warm anomaly of sea surface temperature under a moving storm can cause it to rapidly intensify. It is also possible (although still largely up for debate) that the rise of ocean temperatures caused by global warming can increase the number and the intensity of hurricanes in a warming climate.

Definitions

Definitions of different sea surface temperatures

But what exactly is sea-surface temperature? Before we move on to the measurement techniques, let us have a look at Figure 7, which illustrates the vertical profile of temperature in the ocean’s upper layer, up to a depth of around 10 metres (foundation depth). Figure 7 shows typical night-time and daytime temperature distributions. This “foundation” sea-surface temperature, marked with a blue star, is usually observed throughout the entire layer by the end of the night, and it is the parameter used to express the changes in sea-surface temperature.

However, as shown in Fig. 7, there are “different” sea surface temperatures, which depend on the measurement depth. At the interface of air and ocean, a white star marks SSTint temperature. It is usually a little lower than the temperature of the water directly beneath it. This is because energy is emitted through infrared radiation. SSTint is the temperature that would be observed at the very surface of the water, but its definition has mostly theoretical importance, because it is impossible to directly measure the temperature at this interface.

The red and yellow stars mark the sea surface temperatures measured at around 10 micrometres (for comparison, a human hair is about 60 micrometres thick) and a couple of millimetres from the air-water interface. It turns out that infrared electromagnetic radiation only penetrates the ocean to a very small depth. Microwave radiation reaches slightly deeper, up to a few millimetres. Water temperatures measured at these depths are called skin and subskin sea surface temperatures, or skin sea-surface temperatures with regard to infrared and to microwave radiation. They can be indirectly calculated based on satellite measurements.

The green star represents sea-surface temperature as observed at a given depth. It can be measured, for example, using a bucket, a scoop, drifting buoys or water drawn from overboard to cool a ship’s engine. As measurements can be taken at different depths, it is generally denoted by SST with added information about the depth of measurement, e.g. SST(18cm).

Sea surface temperature changes when the upper layer of the ocean absorbs sunlight. This leads to diurnal temperature variations: a warm layer is formed during the day, and usually disappears at the end of the night. The vertical profile of this warm layer is not yet thoroughly understood. Its structure depends on how transparent water is, which is linked to the amount of phytoplankton, the wind speeds at the ocean’s surface and the vertical flow of water. All throughout the night and day, energy is radiated from the ocean surface in infrared. Temperature is also governed by water evaporation.

In the last couple of years, all methods of measurement are being reduced to determine the foundation sea surface temperature as defined above. In other words, no matter what measurement techniques were used or when the observations were performed, we try to introduce systematic corrections so that all measurements have the same point of reference. In practice, these systematic corrections are sometimes very hard to implement, especially if the measurements were performed a few dozen years ago.

Direct measurements – at first, we used wooden buckets

Buckets tied to ropes would be thrown off a ship, then pulled back up (Figure 8). Next, thermometers would be put inside the buckets to measure the water’s temperature. This is how measurements of sea surface temperature began around 150 years ago. The decision to start such measurements had been made during the International Maritime Conference in 1853, mainly to improve the security of marine navigation. They were performed by voluntary observing ships during their regular voyages. As it turns out, it is currently the longest-running measurement series available to assess the changes in Earth’s surface temperature.

Other climate data and methods of evaluating changes in temperature are based on paleoclimatic indices, that is information coming not from direct measurements, but from indirect assessments or numeric models. Thermometers in water buckets offer direct measurements, which is why they are so important.

Although a measurement protocol known as “the Abstract Log” had been in place since 1853, many different techniques were still used afterwards, making it difficult to standardise the results today. Measurement techniques have evolved during the 150 years – wooden buckets have been replaced by canvas and rubber buckets, then we measured the temperature of water used to cool the engine, since 1971 we used moored buoys, and since 1978 we also used buoys drifting on the surface of the ocean. Today we also commonly use satellite measurements. At times, external circumstances changed – during WWII European ships rarely performed measurements, so most of the data comes from American vessels. Furthermore, no one measured temperature during the night, so as not to reveal the ship’s position.

What happens to water in a bucket after pulling it on board a ship? During the day, the Sun shines on the bucket and wind causes evaporation. The material of which the bucket is built causes water temperature to change faster or slower, depending on air temperature. Scientists have used various techniques to estimate the changes in the temperature of water in a bucket standing on board a ship. One such method is a laboratory measurement (Figure 9). The results of such a procedure can be expressed through mathematical expressions that account for factors such as incoming solar radiation, loss of energy through infrared radiation, size and material of the bucket, wind speed, water mixing, and the initial difference of temperature and humidity between air and water. For example (Figure 10), if a measurement was performed 3 minutes after pulling the bucket up, and water was 5°C warmer than air, it would cool down by 0.2°C – in other words, the reports systematically understate sea surface temperature. This “cold error” is now taken into account through correction of sea surface temperature measurements, which is one of the methods of standardising climate data.

Temperature change measurements

Direct measurements – drifters

If you throw a ball in a river, it will go downstream. In the late 1970s, the first buoys were built and deployed to drift in the ocean. Drifters, as they are called, consist of a sphere, inside of which there is equipment to measure temperature, batteries and a system that enables communication with satellites passing above. Based on the position obtained from a GPS receiver, the buoy’s speed and direction of movement can be determined, and satellite data transmission allows us to estimate sea surface temperature at a depth of around 18 centimetres below the air-water interface.

A typical buoy is about 40 centimetres across, and is tethered to something that resembles a “holey sock,” a 7-metre-long cylinder that limits the drift to the velocities and directions of water currents around 15 metres below the ocean’s surface. A large number of drifters released into the ocean approximately 500 kilometres apart can help to gauge sea surface temperature over vast areas.

In the last two decades, we had about 1300 buoys drifting on the ocean’s surface. Some of them provide information not only about ocean currents and water temperature, but also about surface pressure and/or water salinity. Sometimes drifters are deployed before tropical cyclones to measure the hurricane’s cold trail, that is the decrease in water temperature caused by the interaction between the ocean and the atmospheric circulation in the cyclone.

The fact that buoys drift, shoved by wind and ocean currents, is in itself not good for global temperature measurements, because after some time drifters tend to end up on a shore or close together. For this reason, a few dozen new drifters are deployed every year. In measuring temperature, drifters typically use a small sensor – an epoxy-coated thermistor in a steel tube that sticks out from the spherical buoy casing close to the bottom. The precision of such measurements is around 0.1°C, but because drifters spend a couple of years in the ocean, there may occur systematic variations of absolute temperature reported by thermometers. However, they are usually relatively minor. Surface buoys are an important source of global sea-surface temperature measurements, because they may be deployed virtually anywhere, as opposed to ship-based measurements, which are generally performed on the sea routes between economically important regions.

We should stop to think about what exactly “global temperature measurements” are. On land, temperature measurement stations are placed about 300 kilometres apart, and measurements are performed at so-called synoptic hours – simultaneously throughout the world. The word “synoptic” derives from Greek words meaning “together with” and “view,” which is why in oceanography and meteorology, it means simultaneous measurements. Due to the vastness of the global oceans, taking simultaneous measurements every 300 kilometres has always been difficult. Drifters allowed us to obtain a more “synoptic” and global image of water temperature.

Buoy array in equatorial regions

One of the most important achievements of the last two decades was to establish a measurement array of moored buoys (see Figure 14) throughout the equatorial regions of the Pacific, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic (TAO/TRITON, RAMA and PIRATA). They are used not only to measure sea surface temperature, but also for measurements below the surface and for atmospheric measurements. The buoys are deployed on various latitudes between 10° S and 10° N. Moored buoys play an important role in satellite instrument calibration. On the other hand, they require relatively frequent and expensive maintenance. A ship needs to visit them every dozen or so months to replace the instruments. Due to these costs, the future of this network is currently uncertain.

          A Wall Street analyst says Google has 2 different choices for its car spinoff, and one of them could make Waymo a $180 billion company (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • Waymo will possess such a big lead in self-driving cars when it launches operations in Phoenix by the end of the year that analyst Mark Mahaney expects the market could start bidding up Google's stock in the near-to-medium term.  
  • In a report published Tuesday, Mahaney said that he sees Waymo's management choosing one of two business models, either by buying cars and creating a transport company or by licensing out its self-driving operating system. 
  • In the latter scenario, Mahaney predicts the payday could be big. He estimates that by 2030, Waymo's operating profit could be as high as $35 billion and the company could be worth as much as $180 billion.  


Once the self-driving car market matures in about a decade, Waymo, the subsidiary that Alphabet Inc. launched  in 2016, stands to generate as much as $35 billion in operating profits, according to RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney.

But Alphabet, the parent company of Google, may not have to wait that long to start reaping benefits. In a report published on Tuesday, Mahaney wrote Waymo will possess such a big lead over rivals when it launches commercial operations in Phoenix later this year that investors could soon begin bidding up Alphabet shares.

"While the robo-taxi (Total Available Market) opportunity will likely be nascent in 2025, we believe that it will grow exponentially thru 2050," Mahaney wrote. "We forecast a $3.8 trillion TAM in 2050."

Alphabet has emerged as this generation's equivalent of General Electric, the 126-year stalwart company known for the diversification of its businesses. For years now, Alphabet and its flagship company Google have made forays into a multitude of disparate sectors --including entertainment (YouTube), cellphones (Android), enterprise computing (Google Cloud) and autonomous cars.

Waymo has a huge lead and two potential business models to choose from

sergey brinThis is part of the company's quest to find another growth story to tuck in its hip pocket for the day when Google's core business, internet search advertising, finally goes into decline. To hear Mahaney tell it, Google has found that in Waymo.  

His message is unmistakable: self-driving cars represent a goldmine sometime in the future and Google has  already staked a claim. If investors want to share in the wealth, they had better climb aboard now.

Certainly, a lot could still go wrong before 2030. The whole market faces possible regulatory hurdles as it proves autonomous cars are safe. Plenty of competitors, including traditional car companies as well as tech firms, such as Uber, are gearing up to challenge Google.

But at this early stage, Mahaney says there's no doubt who is in the lead. He wrote that at the recent RBC Auto Tech Conference, "multiple industry participants" said Waymo was "way ahead of the competition in autonomous." 

Waymo's management has yet to reveal how they plan to make money but Mahaney believes the company has one of two options for a business model. Waymo can buy a score of cars and create its own transportation company or it can license the self-driving operating system that it has created. 

In the first scenario, Mahaney estimates that Google can break even in 2025 and realize an operating profit of $20 billion by 2030. Mahaney says in this scenario, Waymo would be worth $119 billion. 

In the second scenario, Mahaney sees Google licensing its technology "in the form of a recurring, yearly software subscription." Here, he sees Google generating an operating profit of $250 million by 2025 and $35 billion in operating profits in 2030. The value of the car company in this situation would be $180 billion, Mahaney wrote.     

Mahaney's bullish report on Waymo and the autonomous-car sector echoes previous analyst predictions. In May, UBS analyst Eric Sheridan wrote in a note to clients that after interviewing 22 industry experts, he valued Waymo at between $25 billion and $135 billion.

NOW WATCH: This hands-free crutch takes the strain off your hands, wrists and arms


          AT&T had a secret reason for wanting to get its hands on Time Warner – it wants to use 5G to get more people to watch TV shows while riding in self-driving cars      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lyft self-driving car

  • Warner Media CEO John Stankey told HBO employees that 5G and autonomous vehicles is an opportunity to get more content in front of consumers.
  • The conversation was part of an internal town hall that leaked to the media.
  • Stankey predicts that individuals will consume an hour  to an hour and a half more content over the course of the next four years.

AT&T has its eyes squarely set on competing with Netflix.

That much was clear during a recent town-hall event where Warner Media CEO John Stankey addressed 150 HBO employees about the upcoming year.

But Stankey revealed a pair of unexpected motivations for AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner: 5G and autonomous vehicles.

Responding to a question about why 5G matters, Stankey took the time to talk about self-driving cars, according to a transcript of the event that Recode published.

"It does things like it opens up the ability for autonomous vehicles, vehicles that are self-driving," Stankey said. "Why do you care about vehicles that are self-driving? If you’re not driving yourself to and from work to and from Los Angeles anymore, you can sit in the back seat and let the vehicle take you, what do you get? You get another hour or two hours to consume great content that you build every day."

5G is the fifth — and next — generation of wireless technology. Its expected to deliver faster speed than the current 4G LTE standard, and allow for "internet of things" deployments.  Stankey sees this as a boon to content providers.

5G may create brand new media time for consumers

"So now you start to think about why am I bullish on building more content?," Stankey said. "Well, I think that the average number of hours that an individual consumes in a given day might actually increase somewhere in the range of an hour to an hour and a half over the course of the next four years because of that shift."

AT&T doesn't want consumers spending those additional hours on Facebook, Stankey said. It wants to build a product that draws prolonged engagement from consumers, and HBO will help it get there. But to get there, HBO needs to transform, offering bigger and broader content to boost customers' engagement, he said at the event.

That approach is a step in the right direction for AT&T's business model, Daniel Ives, the chief strategy officer at GBH Insights, told Business Insider. He noted that media companies that produce content will be busy in the upcoming year.

The next 12 to 18 months will be a "content arms race," Ives said.

NOW WATCH: 5 science facts that 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' totally ignored


          GM's $2 billion deal with a Japanese tech giant may give the automaker a big advantage in the race to develop self-driving cars (GM)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cruise Automation

  • GM's $2.25-billion SoftBank investment in the Cruise division has given the company equity value that it can use to attract new talent.
  • Cruise has grown dramatically since GM bought it in 2016. What started as a 40-employee startup now has 800 people working it.
  • GM President Dan Ammann said that another leg of significant growth is on the way as Cruise heads into commercialization in 2019.

In May, General Motors announced that the Vision Fund of Japan's SoftBank would invest $2.25 billion the carmaker's Cruise self-driving division.

GM kicked in an additional $1.1 billion, bringing the total funding to $3.35 billion and giving Cruise a stand-alone value of $11.5 billion. GM acquired Cruise in 2016 for about $600 million, with follow-on growth expenditure bringing the total deal up to $1 billion.

In an interview with Business Insider, GM President Dan Ammann explained why the carmaker pursued the SoftBank investment. 

"We'd been talking to them for a pretty extended period of time," Ammann said. "They'd done a lot of work on the autonomous-vehicle space and a lot of work on us. So there's a very robust foundation to this alignment."

"This wasn’t a show-up and 'Here’s some money' kind of thing," he said.

GM has been steadily profitable since its 2010 IPO, bringing over $70 billion while executing an aggressive share-repurchase program under CEO Mary Barra. The company has also paid a dividend to offset a stock price that's been flat relative to the overall markets. And GM has plenty of cash on hand. 

But Ammann pointed out that the SoftBank investment identified a new value-generator inside the company, which will turn 110 years-old in September.

"To have SoftBank come in and make that bet tells you something about what they see in terms of the opportunity, because they are not investing in an $11-billion valuation to see it go to $13 billion."

"For the Cruise team, this creates some equity currency that we can use to attract talent, and that's a big deal and a big part of why we did it," he continued. 

"We've grown the team from 40 people to nearly 800, and we've got another huge leg of growth to go. It was becoming clear to us that by not having that kind of currency available, we were handicapping ourselves. We’ve seen already in a couple of weeks people resurfacing who hadn’t signed up, so there’s anecdotal, but early evidence, that’s going to be a big deal in attracting people."

GM Cruise Automation Chevy Bolt

Ammann also indicated that the investment provides GM with flexibility in the event of a US market downturn, which many industry observers think is overdue after three straight years to record-setting or near-record sales.

"The deal creates this currency that we can use to raise capital through a separate channel for the [Cruise] business. We didn't want to end up in a situation where we've launched commercially, where we want to go to maximum scale, and that business needs a lot of capital at a time when the mainline business is under pressure."

Ultimately, GM's approach to the Cruise deal and to the latest investment demonstrates how significant of a player the old-economy stalwart has become in the new-economy world of Silicon Valley and high-tech entrepreneurship. The SoftBank investment effectively revealed eleven "unicorns" — Valley-speak for billion-dollar companies yet to stage IPOs — within GM.

Ammann said he is pleased with how the original deal has progressed.

"The typical thing would be 'big company buys startup and screws it up,'" he said.

But GM has given Cruise and CEO Kyle Vogt abundant autonomy and put the right people on both sides of the relationship to manage Cruise's development.

As a result, Cruise is now worth over 1o times what GM paid for it and it could be a model for how established companies can acquire, integrate, and grow startups.

    I hear it every day now: “We’re moving beyond cloud computing to edge computing.” Pretty hypey, and not at all logical.

    Edge computing is a handy trick. It’s the ability to place processing and data retention at a system that’s closer to the target system it’s collecting data for as well as to provide autonomous processing.

    The architectural advantages are plenty, including not having to transmit all the data to the back-end systems—typical in the cloud—for processing. This reduces latency and can provide better security and reliability as well.

              Reynoldsburg man gets 5 years for bilking clients out of more than $1.4 million      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    COLUMBUS – A Reynoldsburg man was sentenced in U.S. District Court today to 60 months in prison for charges related to a $1.4 million investment fraud scheme that defrauded at least 44 individuals.

    According to court documents, between July 2011 and June 2013, Edward J. Campbell operated an investment business known as Rosewood Consulting LLC in Baltimore, Ohio.

    Campbell told victims their money would be invested through Rosewood Consulting into two types of investment programs: historical bonds issued by China and the exchange of Bougainville Kina – illegal currency from the autonomous region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea – into U.S. dollars.

    He told the investors he had access to a trading platform in which he could monetize gold-backed bonds issued by China in 1913 for a very high return.

    Campbell offered to sell the bonds to investors for $10,000 to $15,000 each for a promised return on investment of anywhere from $50,000 to upwards of possibly $10 million per bond within 10 to 60 days.

    Campbell also offered to exchange the Bougainville Kina, which he allegedly possessed, into U.S. dollars if the investors hired him for a $100,000 fee. The investors were supposed to receive a return of $1.5 million or more within 10 to 120 days.

    Campbell told investors their investments were refundable if the returns were not paid within the provided timeframes. In addition, he told investors that he had prior success with these investment programs, was a former Navy SEAL, once worked in an investment house, had traveled internationally closing deals and he had nearly 600 investors.

    The investigation revealed that none of the investors received the returns on their investments that Campbell promised.

    Only a few of the 44 investors have been refunded the money they paid for his services and those refunds were paid for with other investors’ funds.

    Campbell usually depleted the funds he received from investors shortly after receiving them, by using the funds for personal expenses, including the purchase of two automobiles and expenses at hotels and restaurants.

    To appease investors regarding delays in paying them the returns on their investments, Campbell said their money was being held up by various United States agencies and or catastrophes to his family or other individuals who were important for these deals to be completed.

    In one example, Campbell told investors his niece was a student and had been shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but later changed his story when the names of the school-shooting victims were released to the public. He also fabricated his attorney’s daughter had been in a motorcycle accident.

    Campbell pleaded guilty on Sept. 21, 2017 to charges of money laundering and wire fraud. As part of his plea agreement, Campbell agreed to pay $1,408,854 in restitution.


              Suicide bombing kills 13 at Pakistan election rally      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    PESHAWAR, Pakistan: A suicide bombing at an election rally killed at least 13 people, including a politician, in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, police said, amid concerns about security ahead of national polls later this month.

    The attack targeted a campaign event organised in the city of Peshawar by the Awami National Party, which has been targeted by Islamist militants in the past over its vocal opposition to extremist groups like the Taliban.

    The bombing came hours after the Pakistan military spokesman said there were security threats ahead of national elections scheduled for July 25.

    "The attack killed at least 13 people, including (Haroon) Bilour," Peshawar city police chief Qazi Jameel told AFP.

    Officials said at least 54 people were wounded.

    Haroon Bilour was one of the ANP's election candidates and belonged to an influential political family in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, of which Peshawar is the capital.

    His father Bashir Bilour, one of the ANP's top leaders, was also killed by a suicide bomber in 2012.

    "According to our initial investigation, it was a suicide attack and Haroon Bilour ... was the target," police official Shafqat Malik told AFP.

    Police said the bomber struck when Bilour was about to address some 200 supporters.

    Local television channels broadcast live scenes of ambulances arriving at the site and rushing victims to the hospital. Some people were seen crying.

    No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but there have been dozens of such bombings in recent years in Peshawar.

    They have often been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban and their allies.

    The city is considered a gateway to Pakistan's troubled semi-autonomous tribal regions, where many militant groups – including al Qaeda – operated until the government launched operations to oust them.

    Militants have targeted politicians, religious gatherings, security forces and even schools in Peshawar.

    'Big ball of fire'

    This was the first major attack on a campaign event for Pakistan's July 25 general election.

    Police chief Jameel said the number of casualties was high because the ANP event was taking place at a house in a narrow street.

    An AFP reporter saw human remains, shoes, broken chairs, and caps littered at the scene.

    Sartaj Khan, an ANP supporter, sustained wounds on his feet.

    "I lost consciousness after the blast. The last thing I saw was a big ball of fire," he said.

    Another party worker, Yaseen Khan, said a deafening explosion rocked the compound as Haroon Bilour shook hands with supporters.

    Pakistan's Election Commission has asked the military to help hold a "free and fair election" in the face of security threats.

    More than 380,000 personnel will be deployed for the elections, according to Major General Asif Ghafoor, the military spokesman.

    The ANP and its ally the Pakistan Peoples Party were unable to campaign for the last general election in 2013 because of threats and attacks on their events and supporters by Islamist militant groups like the Pakistani Taliban.

    But ANP leaders have vowed to continue their campaign this year despite the bombing in Peshawar.

    Pakistan has been fighting a homegrown insurgency since 2004, when militants displaced by the US-led invasion of Afghanistan came to its border tribal areas.

    These groups have often targeted political parties and leaders opposed to their views. Officials have said that while the threat remains, militants have been significantly weakened because of military operations in recent years.

    Pakistani militant organisations have claimed responsibility for attacks on several prominent political figures, including the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007. — AFP
              A Wall Street analyst says Google has 2 different choices for its car spinoff, and one of them could make Waymo a $180 billion company (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

     

     

    Waymo unveils a self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivan during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., January 8, 2017.  REUTERS/Brendan McDermid

    • Waymo will possess such a big lead in self-driving cars when it launches operations in Phoenix by the end of the year that analyst Mark Mahaney expects the market could start bidding up Google's stock in the near-to-medium term.  
    • In a report published Tuesday, Mahaney said that he sees Waymo's management choosing one of two business models, either by buying cars and creating a transport company or by licensing out its self-driving operating system. 
    • In the latter scenario, Mahaney predicts the payday could be big. He estimates that by 2030, Waymo's operating profit could be as high as $35 billion and the company could be worth as much as $180 billion.  


    Once the self-driving car market matures in about a decade, Waymo, the subsidiary that Alphabet Inc. launched  in 2016, stands to generate as much as $35 billion in operating profits, according to RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney.

    But Alphabet, the parent company of Google, may not have to wait that long to start reaping benefits. In a report published on Tuesday, Mahaney wrote Waymo will possess such a big lead over rivals when it launches commercial operations in Phoenix later this year that investors could soon begin bidding up Alphabet shares.

    "While the robo-taxi (Total Available Market) opportunity will likely be nascent in 2025, we believe that it will grow exponentially thru 2050," Mahaney wrote. "We forecast a $3.8 trillion TAM in 2050."

    Alphabet has emerged as this generation's equivalent of General Electric, the 126-year stalwart company known for the diversification of its businesses. For years now, Alphabet and its flagship company Google have made forays into a multitude of disparate sectors --including entertainment (YouTube), cellphones (Android), enterprise computing (Google Cloud) and autonomous cars.

    Waymo has a huge lead and two potential business models to choose from

    sergey brinThis is part of the company's quest to find another growth story to tuck in its hip pocket for the day when Google's core business, internet search advertising, finally goes into decline. To hear Mahaney tell it, Google has found that in Waymo.  

    His message is unmistakable: self-driving cars represent a goldmine sometime in the future and Google has  already staked a claim. If investors want to share in the wealth, they had better climb aboard now.

    Certainly, a lot could still go wrong before 2030. The whole market faces possible regulatory hurdles as it proves autonomous cars are safe. Plenty of competitors, including traditional car companies as well as tech firms, such as Uber, are gearing up to challenge Google.

    But at this early stage, Mahaney says there's no doubt who is in the lead. He wrote that at the recent RBC Auto Tech Conference, "multiple industry participants" said Waymo was "way ahead of the competition in autonomous." 

    Waymo's management has yet to reveal how they plan to make money but Mahaney believes the company has one of two options for a business model. Waymo can buy a score of cars and create its own transportation company or it can license the self-driving operating system that it has created. 

    In the first scenario, Mahaney estimates that Google can break even in 2025 and realize an operating profit of $20 billion by 2030. Mahaney says in this scenario, Waymo would be worth $119 billion. 

    In the second scenario, Mahaney sees Google licensing its technology "in the form of a recurring, yearly software subscription." Here, he sees Google generating an operating profit of $250 million by 2025 and $35 billion in operating profits in 2030. The value of the car company in this situation would be $180 billion, Mahaney wrote.     

    Mahaney's bullish report on Waymo and the autonomous-car sector echoes previous analyst predictions. In May, UBS analyst Eric Sheridan wrote in a note to clients that after interviewing 22 industry experts, he valued Waymo at between $25 billion and $135 billion.

              AT&T had a secret reason for wanting to get its hands on Time Warner – it wants to use 5G to get more people to watch TV shows while riding in self-driving cars      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Lyft self-driving car

    • Warner Media CEO John Stankey told HBO employees that 5G and autonomous vehicles is an opportunity to get more content in front of consumers.
    • The conversation was part of an internal town hall that leaked to the media.
    • Stankey predicts that individuals will consume an hour  to an hour and a half more content over the course of the next four years.

    AT&T has its eyes squarely set on competing with Netflix.

    That much was clear during a recent town-hall event where Warner Media CEO John Stankey addressed 150 HBO employees about the upcoming year.

    But Stankey revealed a pair of unexpected motivations for AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner: 5G and autonomous vehicles.

    Responding to a question about why 5G matters, Stankey took the time to talk about self-driving cars, according to a transcript of the event that Recode published.

    "It does things like it opens up the ability for autonomous vehicles, vehicles that are self-driving," Stankey said. "Why do you care about vehicles that are self-driving? If you’re not driving yourself to and from work to and from Los Angeles anymore, you can sit in the back seat and let the vehicle take you, what do you get? You get another hour or two hours to consume great content that you build every day."

    5G is the fifth — and next — generation of wireless technology. Its expected to deliver faster speed than the current 4G LTE standard, and allow for "internet of things" deployments.  Stankey sees this as a boon to content providers.

    5G may create brand new media time for consumers

    "So now you start to think about why am I bullish on building more content?," Stankey said. "Well, I think that the average number of hours that an individual consumes in a given day might actually increase somewhere in the range of an hour to an hour and a half over the course of the next four years because of that shift."

    AT&T doesn't want consumers spending those additional hours on Facebook, Stankey said. It wants to build a product that draws prolonged engagement from consumers, and HBO will help it get there. But to get there, HBO needs to transform, offering bigger and broader content to boost customers' engagement, he said at the event.

    That approach is a step in the right direction for AT&T's business model, Daniel Ives, the chief strategy officer at GBH Insights, told Business Insider. He noted that media companies that produce content will be busy in the upcoming year.

    The next 12 to 18 months will be a "content arms race," Ives said.

    Autonomous robots excel in factories and other manmade spaces, but they struggle with the randomness of nature.

    To help these machines overcome uneven terrain and other obstacles, University at Buffalo researchers have turned to beavers, termites, and other animals that build structures in response to simple environmental cues, as opposed to following predetermined plans.

    The future will, almost certainly and as usual, be a combination of all the above. What seems inevitable is that close combat will be carried out by aircraft with a high element of autonomy. A human being flying via a signal bounced several thousand miles around the earth via satellite links just has too much inherent latency. Whether they are fully autonomous, or have a remote pilot "supervisor" component is a largely political decision, being human I have little expectation that a moral element will enter into the decision making process.

    So, yes, American fast food, the bane of all, (not the bane of old). It will ever so hard to surpass the capabilities of the F-35. A fully autonomous aircraft, will make instant decisions, just hope they are the correct ones. For instance, the decision of really whether to engage (fire a missile) or not, and actually start a conflict, where the other side is just bluffing. Might be sort of hard to call that one back.

    I know how this ends - someone programs a fully autonomous fighter to protect the population and the cockamamie thing connects itself to the internet, identifies heart disease as the nations biggest killer and starts a brutal shock-and-awe air campaign against Greggs. If that's the future these so-called boffins want then they can flipping well think twice, and that's swearing.

              The federal landscape on self-driving cars      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Motivated by the unprecedented spike in automotive fatalities in 2015, mostly caused by human error, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has embraced self-driving cars as a means to significantly reduce motor vehicle crashes. In so doing, the DOT stands behind developing a regulatory framework which encourages the safe development, testing and deployment of automated vehicles. Because current legislation and policies have not caught up with technology, Congress and the DOT are hoping to create legislation which balances technology and car manufacturers’ freedom to test, evaluate and deploy driverless cars with ascertaining the best ways to operate and govern these vehicles on U.S. roadways.

    As such, the DOT released its voluntary guidance on automated driving systems in September 2016, known as the “Federal Automated Vehicle Policy” and updated it in September 2017. The new guidance, titled “Automated Driving Systems: A Vision for Safety,” revised the earlier guidance based on public comments from, among others, the automotive industry, the technology industry, private citizens and special interest groups. The NHTSA guidance provides advice to would-be developers of automated driving systems in a number of subject areas including overall safety and testing methodologies, cybersecurity, privacy, post-crash behavior and consumer education and training.

    In the hopes of maintaining a uniform national system for automated driving systems, NHTSA also addresses best practices for state legislatures. These practices for aiding in the development and integration of autonomous vehicles maintain the current division of responsibility between the state …

    According to an international understanding, all offshore oil rigs, wind turbines and other structures must be removed from the environment once they're no longer functional. A new study, however, claims that it might be better for marine life if such decommissioned installations just stayed put.

              Ex-Apple Employee Arrested for Stealing Self-Driving Car Technology      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    A former Apple employee has been arrested on charges of stealing self-driving car technology and sharing trade secrets to a Chinese electric vehicle company called Xpeng Motors. He was arrested on July 7 at the security checkpoint at San Jose International Airport on the way to board a "last-minute" flight to Hangzhou, China. U.S. federal prosecutors accused ex-Apple hardware engineer, Xiaolang Zhang, of copying over 40 GB of Apple intellectual property to his wife's laptop before leaving Apple in April to work for Xpeng Motors, reports WIRED. According to Reuters, the downloaded data includes a 25-page secret blueprint of a circuit board for a self-driving car, which investigators say "serves as the basis for the instant criminal charge." According to court documents, Zhang was hired by Apple in 2015 to work on the autonomous vehicle project. He took paternity leave in April 2018, and traveled to China, but was flagged for suspicious behavior when his supervisor discovered that he ran extensive searches of secret databases and returned to Apple's campus on April 28, when he was still supposed to be in China for paternity leave. On April 30, Zhang resigned from Apple to work for Xpeng Motors. On June 27, the FBI questioned Zhang and served a search warrant at his house. Agents later learned that Zhang purchased a "last-minute" ticket to China for July 7, on which day he was arrested. Stay tuned for more details and share your thoughts in the comments below.

              Israeli spaceship scheduled for historic landing on the moon next year      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The Israeli organization SpaceIL and the state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced at a conference Tuesday that it hopes to become the first Israeli group to land a spacecraft on the moon. The spacecraft will be transferred to the US in November, before being launched in December, and plans are in place to land on the moon on February 13. If successful, Israel would become the 4th country to land a craft on the moon, after the US, the Soviet Union and China. The spacecraft, which is shaped like a round table with four carbon fiber legs, will be launched from Florida's Cape Canaveralon on a SpaceX'S Falkon 9 rocket in December, and then slingshot around the planet several times to reach the moon. Upon landing, the craft will relay photographs and collect data about the moon's magnetism for research by Israel's Weizmann Institute. "We will put the Israeli flag on the moon," said Dr. Ido Anteby, CEO of SpaceIL. "It's a small, smart spacecraft, it has a 2 meters diameter, its height is about 1.5 meters (3.2 feet), it weighs 600 kilogram, and will land on the moon at the weight of 180 kilograms." Unlike other spacecrafts, which took several days to reach the moon, SpaceIL's spacecraft will take longer. The launcher will release the spacecraft at the height of 60,000 kilometers, and to save fuel, it will enter an elliptical orbit around the Earth until it reaches the moon. According to Dr. Anteby, the landing is the most complicated part of the journey. "The spot chosen is relatively flat and the spacecraft will have eye contact with the Earth ... Once the spacecraft reaches the landing point, it becomes completely autonomous, the engines block it until it reaches the ground ... The first step will be to put up an Israeli flag on the moon," he said. The lunar mission is scheduled to last just two days after it touches down. But the SpaceIL team hopes that putting an Israeli-made module on the moon could help maintain Israel's technological momentum for years to come. ______ SpaceIL is a non-profit organization established in 2011 and was founded by 3 engineers: Yariv Bash, Kfir Damari and Yonatan Weintraub, who entered a global competition organized by Google's Lunar Xprize. Three groups from around the world originally registered for the competition, which opened in 2007. The contest was a modern international race between private groups to land an unmanned spacecraft on the moon. Within a few years, most of the competitors dropped out due to the complexities and challenging invovled, leaving only 16 teams to battle it out. Later, Google Lunar Xprize announced that a group that would not be able to sign a contract until the end of 2016 would be automatically be removed from the race. Besides SpaceIL, the finalists were companies hailing from Japan, the US, India and the international company Synergy Moon. In January of this year, the $20 million competition was scrapped by the tech giant when it became clear none of the companies would meet the deadline. However, the Israeli group contniued with its mission of historic moon landing.

               DB Schenker tests automated "Wiesel" swap-body transporter       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    DB Schenker is the world's first logistics service provider testing an automated "Wiesel" at its site in Nuremberg. This vehicle manufactured by KAMAG has been developed to transport swap bodies at logistics yards and can move these autonomously. The "Wiesel" serves to analyze and evaluate the automated processes. The vehicle has been developed for the use on company grounds only, and won’t be deployed in public spaces. KAMAG and DB Schenker, two leading global companies, are cooperating to push forward jointly the innovation topic of automated driving.Erik  Wirsing, Vice President Global Innovation at Schenker AG, said at today's presentation of the "Wiesel": "Digitalization improves efficiency throughout the entire transportation ecosystem. The use of driverless transportation systems is already an important component of our logistics processes. The evaluation of the test phase will show how we integrate the system into our overland transportation system."Managing Director Bernd Schwengsbier from KAMAG: "The pilot project allows us to analyze the potential of the technology in specific everyday logistics applications. This will help us to further develop and improve the technology. With our automated guided vehicle we make a contribution to increasing the efficiency of our customers."In the long term, the aim is to maximize the cost-effectiveness of automated swap-body vehicles and to match the turnaround time of vehicles manned by drivers. In comparison with regular swap-body transporters, potential benefits include reduced personnel costs, longer maintenance intervals as well as a resource-optimized operation. The automated operation of the "Wiesel" reduces pollutant emissions and noise. In light of the increasing staff shortages in the logistics industry, the autonomous vehicle can also help alleviates taffing issues.Moreover, using automated vehicles improves the overall safety level on logistics yards, where human error is considered the main cause of accidents. The very precise sensors help to minimize the risk of injuries and damages to the infrastructure. In terms of  safety and thanks to the sensors, the vehicle can detect obstacles and stops automatically whenever necessary. Adding to this, during the tests executed by DB Schenker the vehicle can be stopped at any time by using a radio remote control.The automated “Wiesel” in Nuremberg was constructed by converting a standard swap-body vehicle.

              A Reinforcement Learning Approach to Jointly Adapt Vehicular Communications and Planning for Optimized Driving. (arXiv:1807.03515v1 [cs.SY])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Mayank K. Pal, Rupali Bhati, Anil Sharma, Sanjit K. Kaul, Saket Anand, P. B. Sujit

    Our premise is that autonomous vehicles must optimize communications and motion planning jointly. Specifically, a vehicle must adapt its motion plan staying cognizant of communications rate related constraints and adapt the use of communications while being cognizant of motion planning related restrictions that may be imposed by the on-road environment. To this end, we formulate a reinforcement learning problem wherein an autonomous vehicle jointly chooses (a) a motion planning action that executes on-road and (b) a communications action of querying sensed information from the infrastructure. The goal is to optimize the driving utility of the autonomous vehicle. We apply the Q-learning algorithm to make the vehicle learn the optimal policy, which makes the optimal choice of planning and communications actions at any given time. We demonstrate the ability of the optimal policy to smartly adapt communications and planning actions, while achieving large driving utilities, using simulations.


              Social-Feature Enabled Communications among Devices towards Smart IoT Community. (arXiv:1807.03590v1 [cs.NI])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Qinghe Du, Houbing Song, Xuejie Zhu

    Future IoT is expected to get ubiquitous connection and access in a global scale. In the meantime, with the empowered communications capability for IoT devices, IoT will evolve to be highly autonomous, even under the help from infrastructure, and thus will gradually establish the smart IoT community. One of the major challenges imposed on the smart IoT communities is the socialization of IoT communications, because massive IoT accesses make centralized control very hard and also face the shortage of spectrum resources. Towards these issues, we in this article first present the overview and discussions on social features affecting connections among devices. Then, we motivate studies on the statistical characteristics of social features for connections among devices towards smart IoT. We further propose the queuing model under unified asymptotic analyses framework to characterize the statistical social features, with emphases on typical social metrics such as credit, reputation, centrality, etc. How to apply these features for network optimization is further suggested. Finally, we share our opinion on the open problems of social-aware design towards future smart IoT.

    Autonomous urban driving navigation with complex multi-agent dynamics is under-explored due to the difficulty of learning an optimal driving policy. The traditional modular pipeline heavily relies on hand-designed rules and the pre-processing perception system while the supervised learning-based models are limited by the accessibility of extensive human experience. We present a general and principled Controllable Imitative Reinforcement Learning (CIRL) approach which successfully makes the driving agent achieve higher success rates based on only vision inputs in a high-fidelity car simulator. To alleviate the low exploration efficiency for large continuous action space that often prohibits the use of classical RL on challenging real tasks, our CIRL explores over a reasonably constrained action space guided by encoded experiences that imitate human demonstrations, building upon Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (DDPG). Moreover, we propose to specialize adaptive policies and steering-angle reward designs for different control signals (i.e. follow, straight, turn right, turn left) based on the shared representations to improve the model capability in tackling with diverse cases. Extensive experiments on CARLA driving benchmark demonstrate that CIRL substantially outperforms all previous methods in terms of the percentage of successfully completed episodes on a variety of goal-directed driving tasks. We also show its superior generalization capability in unseen environments. To our knowledge, this is the first successful case of the learned driving policy through reinforcement learning in the high-fidelity simulator, which performs better-than supervised imitation learning.

    Authors: Cumhur Erkan Tuncali, Georgios Fainekos, Hisahiro Ito, James Kapinski

    Many organizations are developing autonomous driving systems, which are expected to be deployed at a large scale in the near future. Despite this, there is a lack of agreement on appropriate methods to test, debug, and certify the performance of these systems. One of the main challenges is that many autonomous driving systems have machine learning components, such as deep neural networks, for which formal properties are difficult to characterize. We present a testing framework that is compatible with test case generation and automatic falsification methods, which are used to evaluate cyber-physical systems. We demonstrate how the framework can be used to evaluate closed-loop properties of an autonomous driving system model that includes the ML components, all within a virtual environment. We demonstrate how to use test case generation methods, such as covering arrays, as well as requirement falsification methods to automatically identify problematic test scenarios. The resulting framework can be used to increase the reliability of autonomous driving systems.

    Authors: Umberto Grandi

    Direct democracy is often proposed as a possible solution to the 21st-century problems of democracy. However, this suggestion clashes with the size and complexity of 21st-century societies, entailing an excessive cognitive burden on voters, who would have to submit informed opinions on an excessive number of issues. In this paper I argue for the development of voting avatars, autonomous agents debating and voting on behalf of each citizen. Theoretical research from artificial intelligence, and in particular multiagent systems and computational social choice, proposes 21st-century techniques for this purpose, from the compact representation of a voter's preferences and values, to the development of voting procedures for autonomous agents use only.

              2018 Hyundai Tucson priced from £21,845      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    2018 Hyundai Tucson revealed before sales kick off in summer Refreshed version of Hyundai’s best seller gets updated engine line-up with tweaked look; price undercuts equivalent European diesel offerings

    Hyundai's facelifted Tucson - the brand's best-seller - is priced from £21,845 in entry-level S Connect 1.6 GDI specification. 

    The pricing puts slightly lower than entry-level diesel versions of the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq, which £22,970 and £22,950 respectively. The new 48-volt hybrid version of the Tucson is available exclusively with a 2.0-litre engine in Premium and Premium SE specs, and starts at £32,945. The range-topping Premium SE 48V car is £34,945. 

    The brand pulled the wraps off its refreshed Tucson earlier this year in New York, where Toyota also unveiled its Tucson rival, the 2018 RAV4, Hyundai’s best-selling model gets a revised engine line-up with the aforementioned hybrid and new 1.6-litre diesel variants, more safety features and a lightly tweaked design.

    The new car comes with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines, with each certified to Euro 6c emissions standard and claimed to offer lower CO2 output and better fuel economy as a result.

    As is the case with the pre-facelift Tucson, at the entry level is a 130bhp 1.6-litre GDi petrol, while a turbocharged T-GDi offers 175bhp. Meanwhile, the 1.7-litre diesel of today’s Tucson has been traded for a 1.6-litre with two available outputs: 113bhp and 131bhp. The existing 2.0 CRDi remains, delivering 183bhp.

    Drive is sent to the front wheels as standard but all-wheel drive versions are available. A six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is offered.

    Hyundai has expanded the list of available driver assist features in the 2018 Tucson. It is offered with autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist and driver attention warning technology. Buyers can add more kit, including a 360deg camera, high beam assist and adaptive cruise control.

    Inside, the car comes with a 7.0in or 8.0in infotainment touchscreen, depending on the specification. A premium sound system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and wireless phone-charging come as part of an extended technical features options list, which also includes 3D satellite navigation.

    The new £21,845 price is £1990 over the previous entry-level price, although a higher-spec interior and equipment upgrades can account for much of the increase.

               Cosco-MOL ice-breaking LNG tanker transits Northern Sea Route      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Sino-Japanese ice-breaking LNG carrier, the 96,844-dwt Vladimir Rusanov, has arrived in the Bering Strait, having carried out a loading operation in the Yamal LNG plant at Sabetta port.The vessel took on LNG in the Yamal LNG plant in the Siberian Port of Sabetta, before sailing for the Far East via the Northern Sea Route on June 25.The Yamal Peninsula is located in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug of northwest Siberia, Russia. It extends 700 kilometres and is bordered by the Kara Sea.The Hong Kong-flagged vessel safely arrived at the Bering Strait on 6 July, and is planning to call Jiangsu Rudong port in China for an unloading operation of its LNG cargo.The Vladimir Rusanov is jointly owned by MOL and China Cosco Shipping Corporation and is destined to continue servicing the Yamal LNG Project, as announced in July 2014.Since the vessel started LNG transportation services in the end of March 2018, she has transported four LNG cargoes to Europe via transiting westwards, reports the American Journal of Transportation.With the arrival of the summer transit season in the Arctic, the vessel had its first opportunity to navigate eastwards along the Northern Sea Route to East Asia via the Bering Strait without ice-breaker support.This voyage also marks a first for the Yamal LNG Project's direct LNG delivery to East Asia.The voyage sets a new benchmark in the transportation of natural resources from the Arctic via the shorter Northern Sea Route, giving further momentum of natural resource development in the Arctic.This will be of considerable benefit to meet the growing energy needs of many natural resource importing Asian countries, including Japan and China, said the joint statement from the two companies.

              China owns the future of cars and German automakers want in      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    German automakers know the future of their industry is electric, autonomous and in China.

    Top German carmakers including BMW and Volkswagen have inked a series of deals this week to continue developing electric and self-driving cars in China.

    The flurry of commitments coincides with a trip to Berlin by Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, but it also reflects a growing recognition that China holds the key to the auto industry's future.

    Factories in China produced about 25 million passenger cars last year, according to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers. China is already the top market for many global car brands, and its drivers purchase more electric vehicles than any other country.

    BMW and Volkswagen have announced a total of six new deals this week alone.

    Volkswagen committed €15 billion ($17.6 billion) on Tuesday to research in China on topics such as e-mobility, connectivity and autonomous driving. CEO Herbert Diess said the company would be "systematically expanding its partnerships" in the country.

    BMW, meanwhile, has finalized plans to produce electric Minis in the country through a joint venture with Great Wall Motor. It's also joining the board of Apollo, an autonomous driving project from Chinese internet firm Baidu.

    Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler extended a deal with Tsinghua University to continue the development of automated cars.

    "China is the biggest market for us and when we want to go autonomous, we have to make sure it works in China," Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said in Hong Kong.

    German auto parts firm Continental also inked a new partnership with Uber rival Didi Chuxing to develop autonomous and electric cars.

    A recent announcement that China would relax its rules on joint ventures -- allowing foreign firms to operate with more independence in the country -- has also attracted attention from foreign auto executives, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

    Tesla said last year that it was in discussions with the Shanghai Municipal Government about building a factory, and on Tuesday it confirmed that it had reached agreement to build a plant. The company said it would take roughly two years for production to begin at the facility.

    China has become a world leader in electric vehicles as the government pushes to lower pollution levels and boost the country's tech sector.

    The government will introduce rules next year that require carmakers to devote a significant proportion of their production to electric and hybrid cars.

    "The fact that the [electric vehicle program] is mandatory creates a virtually certain market for plug-in vehicles in China. Elsewhere the consumer has been left to decide and so progress has been, and will be, slower," said Al Bedwell, a director at LMC Automotive.

    Bedwell said that foreign car makers "are keen not to be left behind as China moves strongly toward electrification."

    Beijing is also supporting international companies as they develop autonomous driving technology.

    Daimler announced last week that it was the first foreign company to be granted a license to test automated cars on the streets of Beijing.

    Tim Urquhart, an auto analyst at IHS Markit, said that China isn't a leader in this area yet. But national and regional governments are moving fast in the hope of easing urban congestion.

    German automakers have been leaders when it comes to innovation and partnerships in China, said Eric Totaro, senior automotive analyst at Euromonitor International.

    "But I wouldn't be surprised if US automakers could quickly follow suit," he said.

              Esta fusión de un tren y un avión plantea una posible evolución de los aviones tal cual los conocemos       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Avion 02

    Los medios de transporte tradicionales tienen aún mucho margen de mejora, por ejemplo en materia energética. Pero a la vez que esto sucede están las ideas de quienes ven cabida a nuevas formas de transportarnos de un lugar a otro, y una empresa francesa ve muy claro un futuro donde algo así como la fusión de un avión y un tren en un solo vehículo es posible y funcional.

    Se trata de "Link & Fly", un proyecto basado en el diseño de un avión que en un momento dado puede desprenderse de sus alas para desplazarse por tierra firme y viceversa. Una idea llamativa con la que buscan dar un empujón a la innovación y mejora de los aviones tal cual los conocemos actualmente, que al mismo tiempo sirve para que la empresa se dé a conocer a modo de carraspeo a las grandes constructoras de aviación.

    De casa a otro país sin cambiar de vehículo

    La empresa en cuestión es Akka Technologies, una consultora de ingeniería y tecnología que hasta ahora trabajado en distintos tipos de proyectos relacionados con la automoción autónoma, como el híbrido Renault Eolab, el 4 x 4 Projekt Grenadier o el proyecto con Microsoft e ICONIQ Motors para 2020. Hasta ahora porque "Link & Fly" es toda una declaración de intenciones de dar el salto a los cielos y a que los aviones sean lo próximo en ser eléctricos y autónomos.

    Así lo dijo su CEO, Maurice Ricci, en una entrevista en París que traslada en parte Bloomberg. Considera que los aviones necesitan ser más silenciosos y eficientes, y aunque no se especifica qué fuente de energía tendría el "Lift & Fly" parece que la idea por el momento sería una forma híbrida de transporte, al indicar combustible en litros al menos para la parte de vuelo.

    Así, el concepto ilustra una manera de ligar medios y evitar conexiones tediosas para lo pasajeros, con cálculos sobre la velocidad, dimensiones y características de un medio de transporte bivalente. Una de las ideas para que sea cómodo, por cierto, es la identificación por escaneo de retina de los pasajeros en la propia cápsula, recordando un poco a las ideas del túnel de escaneo en el aeropuerto de Dubai.

    La idea es que sean cápsulas que puedan configurarse según la necesidad de transporte, si pasajeros o carga. La capacidad estimada es de 162 personas y 14 contenedores de tipo LD3 (4,5 metros cúbicos) o bien dos cubiertas que equivaldrían a un contenedor tipo LD7 (entree 10 y 12 metros cúbicos) y LD3. La tendría que pesar como máximo 21.000 kilogramos, pesando el transporte 42.000 kilogramos y con un peso máximo para el despegue entre 70.000 y 80.000 kilogramos.

    Las medidas estimadas son de 33,8 metros de longitud, 8,2 metro de altura y 48,8 metros de envergadura (de punta a punta de las alas). La velocidad de crucero estaría en torno a mach 0,78 y la máxima por mach 0,82, con una capacidad de 8.750 litros de combustible y un consumo por trayecto de 2.200 kilómetros de 3.000 litros, pudiendo extenderlos 800 kilómetros más (con un consumo añadido de 1.000 litros).

    Un Airbus A320 para tierra y aire

    Para hacerse una idea del volumen y las propiedades del "Lift & Fly", se asemeja al Airbus A320 en cuanto a la capacidad (entre 150 y 180 pasajeros, siendo algo más ancho el concepto que el modelo de avión al tener éste último una envergadura de 34,1 metros pero con altura y longitud similares. El peso máximo al despegue sería también similar (con 78.000 kilogramos para el A320) así como las velocidades de crucero y máxima, pero el avión puede cargar bastante más combustible.

    La idea es que se hiciesen nueve trayectos al día, dos más que los actuales según la compañía. Y aunque la intención sea marcar un camino más que materializar tal medio (a diferencia de Hyperloop, hasta la fecha), dice Ricci que hay "potentes clientes asiáticos" interesados en la idea, según trasladaba Bloomberg.

    Facebook ads are getting more expensive. And the more direct-to-consumer brands there are looking to build their companies through social media, the more competitive buying Facebook ads becomes.

    But for DTC brands, there's no quitting Facebook.

    Indeed, even as more direct marketers like Casper, Brooklinen, and Hims are using subway, TV and even out-of-home ads to avoid Facebook's increase in ad prices and getting squeezed out of the newsfeed, they're still spending big on Facebook.

Facebook acknowledged that it gave Mail.Ru special access to user data after 2015, when it officially ended the system that allowed third-party apps to access user data.

    Facebook planned to kick several major third-party data vendors off its ad platform — now those data giants have quietly found a way to stick around. Data giants including Acxiom, Epsilon and Oracle, have found a way back in, that is if big brands will vouch for them.

    Embedded systems are in a profound transition: from physically isolated, autonomous devices to Internet-connected, accessible devices. Designers are learning—often to their dismay—that the mutation requires far more than just gluing a network interface onto the bus and adding an Internet Protocol stack. In many ways, these Internet-aware designs are coming to look less like traditional embedded systems and more like miniaturized enterprise data centers.

    Much data-center technology—multitasking, multiprocessing, and fast private networks, for example—is already familiar to designers of large embedded systems, albeit on a far smaller scale. But one data-center technology—system security—may prove novel. Yet the same needs that shape data-center security architectures magically appear in embedded systems–once you connect them to the Internet. Unlike compute, storage, or connectivity requirements though, the demands of security don’t diminish much when you scale the system down from a warehouse-sized data center to a connected embedded device.

    Data Center Security

    So what is it that data centers—and connected embedded systems–need in the way of security? First, they need to protect themselves from external attacks and internal subversion by their own applications. This means providing a protected envelope in which any attempt to read or write code or data will be authenticated before it is performed. It also means that all system code and data—for operating systems, hypervisors, management, or maintenance—must be strongly encrypted when it is in storage or in transit outside that trusted envelope.

    Second, data centers must support the security needs of their applications. Apps may provide transport-layer security (TLS, once known as secure socket layer, or SSL) for their clients, or they may use public-key authentication and encryption. They may also require authenticated and encrypted inter-process communication and storage, often using symmetric-key cryptography. They will look to the data center for key management and, often, crypto algorithm acceleration.

    There are three common elements to all of these needs. They all require a secure, accelerated environment (Figure 1) in which to execute cryptographic algorithms. They need a safe way to create, store, send, and receive cryptographic keys. And, in order to create strong keys, they need a true random number generator based on a physical source of entropy.

    Figure 1. Extreme measures are necessary to protect encryption keys and codes.

    Crypto algorithms need a special environment for two reasons. First, they must be kept secure from corruption and monitoring. They are the ideal point of attack in the data center. Second, they can place an unsupportable computing burden on application CPUs, driving up latency in just the places where apps are most latency-sensitive. Both of these arguments suggest a physically secure proprietary hardware accelerator.

    The problem of cryptographic key management presents similar issues. Secret keys must of course be kept secret. Less obviously, public keys must be protected from tampering. If a hacker can substitute a key she created for a public key you obtained from a certificate authority, you will authenticate messages from the hacker instead of genuine messages. These concerns preclude allowing unencrypted keys to ever be in server memory or storage. In fact some experts argue that they preclude allowing even encrypted keys into shared memory.

    The random number problem is more mathematical. In order to generate a new key, you start with a random number. If the number is not truly random, but follows a statistical pattern, you have just narrowed the space in which an attacker must search to discover the key. Software random-number generators, though, can only approximate a genuinely random distribution. The poorer the approximation, the easier it will be for an attacker to find the key through directed trial and error. So ideally, you would get your random number by sampling a truly random physical process, such as delay-line jitter, RF noise or semiconductor junction noise. There is strong motivation to have a hardware-based random-number generator.

    The HSM

    These considerations led vendors to develop, and most data centers to install, a specialized appliance called a hardware security module (HSM). In either board or box form factor, the HSM meets the requirements outlined above, with several distinctive features.

    First, the HSM is physically tamper-resistant, in much the same manner as a smartcard. The package may be designed to resist penetration, voltage manipulation, thermal attacks, and even examination by x-rays or ion beams. Such events should trigger the module to delete internal memory. Ideally, the module should also block side-channel attacks such as differential power analysis.

    Second, the HSM should provide proprietary hardware for crypto algorithm acceleration, key storage, and random-number generation.

    Third, the HSM must have a highly restrictive, bullet-proof firewall. The device should only respond to authenticated requests for a small number of pre-defined actions, such as to encrypt or decrypt a string or to create, read, write, or apply a key. Private or secret keys should only be readable under rigorous conditions, and only in encrypted form. Two special functions, key back-and up and restore, usually to a smartcard, and firmware update, must be very carefully controlled, ideally by multi-party authentication involving at least one trusted human.

    By providing multiple levels of security, from external tamper protection to strong encryption of internal data and code, the HSM becomes so hard to hack that for most attackers it just isn’t worth the bother (Figure 2). Sadly, in practice it usually isn’t worth the bother because some other part of the data center is much more vulnerable. In any case, the HSM establishes the foundation on which the rest of the data-center security architecture is constructed.

    .Figure 2. Full security requires multiple layers of defenses.

    Understandably, HSM vendors are uninterested in describing the architectures of their modules. But it is possible to make some generalizations about just what is in a typical box-level HSM (Figure 3).

    Figure 3. A typical HSM has a relatively simple structure.

    The tamper resistance functions require hardware support, including motion, capacitive, radiation, voltage, and temperature sensors. There will be a secure microcontroller, ideally with in-line encryption/decryption on the memory and I/O interfaces. It will be the job of this MCU to monitor the sensors and supervise the other functions of the HSM. It will also read some sort of analog device to get a seed for random number generation. The MCU should of course also be secure against side-channel attacks.

    In addition, there should be secure memory for key storage. Ideally this should be a custom device resistant to scanning from outside and instantly erasable when intrusion is detected. But the very large amount of memory that may be necessary for key storage and for buffers for encryption and decryption tasks in a data center may make DRAM the only practical solution, and the security features will have to be incorporated into the DIMMs.

    Since the firewall is so restrictive, it can probably be implemented in a hardware state machine, relieving the MCU of some overhead and reducing the risk of a successful attack on the MCU software. And last but not least, our HSM will include a crypto algorithm accelerator. This would usually be a hardware data path optimized for the necessary encryption and authentication algorithms.

    But there is a problem in that last statement. There are dozens of key-exchange, authentication, and encryption algorithms in wide use. Murphy’s Law dictates that a data center will have to support a large subset of them, plus some proprietary algorithms dreamed up by apps developers. Covering all these needs with a fixed hardware accelerator might mean either accelerating only very primitive operations, as in a large bank of multiply-accumulators, and shifting a lot of the work back onto the MCU, or else building a very complex—and very hard to verify—reprogrammable state machine. If the latter approach is taken, there will immediately be pressure from data center managers to make the accelerator more general and more accessible to users for application acceleration. HSM vendors must balance these desires against the absolute need to keep the accelerator verifiable during the design process and secure during operation. Some security experts, though, argue that user programmability and security are fundamentally incompatible. If you want the accelerator to be incorruptible, you must define and verify its functions at design time.

    The custom hardware—primarily the crypto datapath—could be done in an easy ASIC, but it would require special attention to ensure that differential power attacks could glean no information from the ASIC’s supply rails, and that the circuitry was protected against voltage and temperature exploits—not unsimilar to the precautions you would take designing a smartcard chip. With these provisions, a secure MCU core could be included in the ASIC as well, if the design team had the necessary expertise or access to appropriate intellectual property (IP). ARM, for example, is now offering a tamper-resistant line of processor IP cores based on the Cortex*-M architecture and called SecureCore. These might prove adequate if the heavy lifting of the crypto algorithms stays in the accelerator.

    This custom design could also be done in an FPGA. But use of an FPGA raises some new issues. Most FPGAs are volatile and configured at power-up from an external memory. This boot process can be protected by encryption, and vendors provide for that. Also, most FPGAs have limited or no mixed-signal capabilities, so it might be impossible to integrate the range of sensor inputs required for tamper detection without external analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), which would themselves add to the attack surface and have to be protected. There are exceptions to both the need for external configuration ROM and lack of mixed-signal circuits, but the exceptions tend to be smaller devices, such as the Intel® MAX® 10 device family.

    FPGAs also introduce some new opportunities. Because the accelerator datapath would be run-time reconfigurable, the crypto accelerator could be reconfigured for each algorithm family as needed, bypassing the dilemma of flexibility versus security. Additionally, there has been some work in creating entropy sources in FPGAs for use by true random number generators.

    All of these implementation options raise another important question. With so many ways to implement the HSM, how can a user know how secure a particular device actually is? The answer is independent certification. The main standard used for HSMs, Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, was created by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). FIPS 140-2 defines four levels of security, ranging from just an unprotected crypto engine on the weak end to an engine and storage subsystem fully enclosed by intrusion and tamper resistant or detecting hardware on the strong end. Each individual design must be certified by a third-party lab recognized under a certification program jointly operated by NIST and Canada’s Communications Security Establishment.

    HSMs may also be evaluated at the product level under the international Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (glibly known as CC), ISO 15408. This certification process is also done by recognized third-party labs. But unlike FIPS 140-2, which evaluates the overall actual security level of the HSM, CC evaluation in effect only checks that claims submitted by the vendor are supportable. This approach, which may or may not involve actual testing of the product, has been used to, for example, get various versions of Microsoft Windows certified under the CC. So it is pretty much up to the user to determine what was actually certified, at what level, and what the implications are for their own use case.

    An Embedded HSM?

    The challenges that brought HSMs to the data center are now present in edge computing, with a few important differences. Embedded systems are likely to use just a few crypto algorithms compared to the plethora a data center would face. And similarly, connected embedded systems probably would need to manage far fewer keys than a data center. Both of these differences could simplify the one big problem with bringing HSMs to embedded systems.

    That problem is scale. Depending on capabilities and level of security, data-center HSMs cost from hundreds to thousands of dollars. The range in size from PCIe* cards to pizza-sized boxes. For an edge-computing rack full of servers that is not a serious problem. But for a more typical embedded system, supposed to fit into a small box or onto a circuit board inside a mechanical assembly, it is a non-starter. There is a clear need for HSM technology to scale down from the pizza box to chip level without compromising functionality or security.

    But is this feasible? Technically, the answer appears to be yes. As we have seen, all the functions of an HSM could in principle be absorbed into an ASIC or FPGA, with the exception of some sensors and the more mechanical elements of physical intrusion detection. And MCU vendors have already offered pieces of a full solution, including secure software-execution modes, on-chip private memories, and limited crypto accelerators. As one report observed, even ordinary smartcard hardware could be used as a reasonably secure but very limited HSM. So an embedded design team with the requisite skills and motivation should be able to produce a chip-level HSM.

    But such a project would face several serious challenges. The requisite skills include secure processor and memory design, a good grasp of cryptography, and experience with physical tamper protection. That’s not a common skill set in embedded design teams. The design should get FIPS 140-2 certification. But that can be an expensive and time-consuming process, as can ISO 15408, running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and months of delays. And all this work could only be amortized across the relatively tiny volumes of the embedded system under design.

    Most serious, perhaps would be a less tangible challenge: convincing management to take system security seriously enough to ignore halfway measures and undertake an HSM chip design. Unfortunately, there is still in management a great deal of magical thinking about the threats facing connected embedded systems, even in applications like power generation and transportation where the potential for damage is vast.

    But there is another way. Perhaps it is time for a semiconductor vendor, with its far broader market and great access to specialized expertises, to undertake a FIPS 140-2 certified HSM chip. At some point, after a few more high-profile attacks on too-important and too-vulnerable physical plants, further progress in edge computing may require it.

    The US has arrested a former Apple employee who allegedly tried to abscond with sensitive proprietary information from the company's closely guarded self-driving car project, according to the Financial Times. Xiaolang Zhang, who had recently left his position at Apple under suspicious circumstances, was arrested by FBI agents as he tried to board a plane bound for mainland China.

    Zhang joined Apple in December 2015, and was arrested on July 7. US prosecutors allege that he had downloaded sensitive information about the company's self-driving car research without permission. During his time at the company, Zhang worked "to develop software and hardware for use in autonomous vehicles."

    The charges against Zhang represent the latest in a series of arrests made by federal authorities of Chinese spies carrying out what the US government calls "economic espionage" that date back to 2006.

    China

    And with President Trump intensifying efforts to stop China from extracting intellectual property from foreign corporate partners trying to gain a foothold in Chinese markets, it's hardly surprising that China is stepping up its espionage programs. Zhang initially aroused suspicion when he told Apple that he would be returning to China to take a job with Xiaopeng Motors, a Chinese electric-car startup that also has offices in the Bay Area.

    The complaint against Mr Zhang said about 5,000 of Apple’s 135,000 full-time employees have security clearance for Titan, although that figure may include staff across the company working on artificial intelligence technology, as well as hundreds of people working on the car project itself.

    Mr Zhang allegedly told Apple on April 30 that he intended to resign after returning from paternity leave. He told his supervisor he was moving back to China to be closer to his mother, who he said was ill. Later in the meeting, he said he intended to work for XMotors, according to the filing on Tuesday.

    His comments apparently raised the suspicions of his supervisor. Mr Zhang was asked to turn over his Apple-owned devices and escorted from its campus, his network and building access revoked, the filing said.

    Apple began an internal investigation and allegedly found he had downloaded information about its autonomous vehicle project. CCTV footage showed he had also taken a large box from Apple’s self-driving car lab shortly before informing his supervisor about his resignation, the US government claimed.

    After his arraignment on Monday, a judge ordered that Zhang be held until his trial, presumably because he presents a serious flight risk (Chinese authorities would

    US prosecutors alleged he had downloaded information from a database for Apple’s self-driving car project - including data on power requirements, battery system and drivetrain suspension mounts - shortly before informing Apple in April that he was resigning.

    He allegedly told the company he intended to return to China and take a job with Xiaopeng Motors, a Chinese electric car start-up with offices in Guangzhou and Palo Alto, California.

    Mr Zhang appeared in court in San Jose, California, on Monday and was remanded in custody, according to a separate filing. He was assigned a public defender, who did not immediately return a call requesting comment.

    Xiaopeng Motors, also known as XMotors, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. According to the filing on Tuesday, Mr Zhang claimed to have joined XMotors’ California office after leaving Apple.

    Not much is publicly known about Apple's secretive self-driving car program, codenamed Project Titan. According to the FT, it's presently focusing on the underlying software for autonomous cars.

    Details started to emerge about Apple’s secret project to create an electric vehicle in early 2015, as it poached staff from carmakers including Tesla and Mercedes-Benz. Since then, Apple has rarely discussed its plans but regulatory filings, including its permit to test autonomous vehicles in California last year, have hinted at its strategy.

    Codenamed Project Titan, the effort underwent a shift in strategy in mid-2016, after its initial leader Steve Zadesky was replaced by Apple veteran Bob Mansfield.

    At the moment, Apple is focusing on developing the underlying systems required for autonomous driving, rather than the vehicle itself. That includes a plan to test a self-driving shuttle to ferry employees around its offices in Silicon Valley.

    As the US said in the document unveiling its latest round of proposed tariffs, the Trump administration has been seeking to stymie China's "Made in China 2025" plan - a government-backed initiative to establish China as a leader in several key industries like artificial intelligence - at every turn. Under Trump, the US has been more aggressive about blocking Chinese companies attempting to acquire US firms in an effort to siphon off their valuable technology. So China has been working on other methods for surreptitiously stealing the technology.

    "Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously," an Apple spokesperson said. "We’re working with authorities on this matter and will do everything possible to make sure this individual and any other individuals involved are held accountable for their actions."

    XMotors, Zhang's erstwhile employer, is one of the dozens of startups working on electric and autonomous vehicles in Silicon Valley. Its purported involvement in the espionage case is made even more galling by the fact that its backers include some of the most well-known Chinese firms like Alibaba. This year, the company hired a former senior banker at JPMorgan to be the company's vice chairman and president. WSJ reported on Wednesday that China is considering other methods of retaliating against President Trump in the battle over trade, including holding up licenses for US firms operating in the Chinese market, to enforcing customs delays while also delaying approval of deals like Qualcomm's planned takeover of NXP Semiconductors. 

    By some estimates, China has 20,000 intelligence operatives embedded in the US ready to commit economic espionage at every conceivable opportunity. China also employs sophisticated hackers like the group that recently infiltrated a military contractor and stole military secrets. And as trade tensions intensify, expect China to press its espionage advantage as President Xi Jinping is determined to make "Made in China 2025" a resounding success.

Adaptive cruise control is an intelligent form of cruise control systems that slows down and speeds up automatically to keep pace with the car in front of you. It dosent make use of any satellite, any roadside infrastructures or any cooperative support from other vehicles, rather it uses sensors and lasers to control the speed of vehicles. The main impact of adaptive cruise control system is on driver's safety as by adjusting the distance between according to the traffic conditions. The overall process is achieved through a radar headway sensor, longitudinal controller and digital signal processor. Adaptive cruise control systems are being enhanced to guide through collision warning capabilities to warn drivers through audio or visual signals that a collision is imminent and that evasive steering is required. Now-a-days, Adaptive cruise control system is often paired with a pre-crash system which alerts the driver and often starts braking. Adaptive cruise control is also known as autonomous cruise control, active cruise control, intelligent cruise control or radar cruise control.

              Serbian peace group marks Srebrenica anniversary in Belgrade      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The Serbian peace group Women in Black marked the worst massacre of civilians in Europe since the second world war in Belgrade on Wednesday. Bosnian Serb soldiers slaughtered over eight thousand Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in Bosnia in 1995. The killings were designated a genocide and General Ratko Mladic, the man who ordered them, was sentenced to life imprisonment by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Srebrenica was inside what was supposedly a safe area protected by the UN. Dutch soldiers who were UN peacekeepers at the time have been held partly responsible for some of the killings by the ICTY. Twenty three years later and the victims are still being buried; this year 35 more bodies were identified and laid to rest. It's a lengthy and painstaking process of recovering remains in the woods around the town and comparing them to DNS samples collected from the victims' families. There are still over 1,900 missing people. Serbian authorities and the Serbian autonomous entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina have on several occasions condemned the massacre as a horrific crime, but have always refused to call it a genocide.
