As internet comment spam gets worse, some sites are taking more extreme measures to battle it. The standard challenge has basically been replaced with distorted images of random characters obscured by all sorts of colors and shapes. That’s not enough for some sites though and, let’s face it, it does nothing to keep out people who aren’t mathematicians. The captcha above protects the Quantum Random Bit Generator Service over at random.irb.hr.Most spambots aren’t equipped to tackle problems like that, but neither are most people. So assuming it was designed to keep out both bots and those who aren’t mathematically inclined, it’s probably the ideal tool for the job.AdChoices广告Figure it out yet?

Nouvelle grève des médecins ce jeudi 8 avrilFrance – Les syndicats MG France et Union généraliste appellent à nouveau les médecins généralistes libéraux à fermer leur cabinet jeudi 8 avril.La grève du 11 mars dernier ne semble pas avoir suffi, les médecins remettent ça jeudi. Et pour cause : leur demande de mise à niveau de leurs honoraires n’a toujours pas été prise en compte par le gouvernement. Aussi vont-ils à nouveau se mettre en grève, afin de voir le tarif de leur consultation réévalué à 23 euros, comme tous les autres spécialistes.À lire aussiNeufbox : SFR augmente les tarifs des appels illimités vers les mobilesIls craignent également la disparition de la profession puisque les effectifs sont en baisse et que le statut de médecin généraliste attire de moins en moins de jeunes diplômés. En effet, les médecins généralistes sont en général les moins bien rémunérés, de plus leurs journées et leurs responsabilités sont particulièrement lourdes.Lors de la grève du 11 mars, près d’un médecin sur cinq avait suivi le mouvement de grève. De plus, le 29 mars, les généralistes avaient été conviés à ne pas remplir les feuilles de soins.Le 8 avril 2010 à 10:24 • Emmanuel Perrin
Google : La mise à jour de Google Panda est effective en FranceDepuis vendredi dernier, la mise à jour de Google Panda est opérationnelle en France.Déjà opérationnelle sur les contenus anglophones, la mise à jour de Google Panda arrive officiellement en France. Celle-ci va affecter le référencement des pages Web rédigées en français.À lire aussiUne incroyable intelligence artificielle donne vie à la Joconde de Léonard de Vinci (Vidéo)La firme de Mountain View assure que cette évolution baptisée Panda de ces algorithmes de référencement a pour but d’améliorer la pertinence des résultats proposés par le moteur de recherche le plus utilisé. Un responsable de Google Panda, Amit Singhal, a expliqué sur le blog de Google France : “Cette mise à jour impacte les résultats perçus par les utilisateurs pour en moyenne 6 à 9% des requêtes, tous langages confondus. L’impact de ce changement est moindre que celui du lancement initial de Panda, qui affectait environ 12% des résultats perçus par les utilisateurs pour les requêtes anglophones.” Cette mise à jour ne prend pas en compte les contenus chinois, japonais et coréen. Probablement qu’après quelques tests supplémentaires effectués, les pages Internet rédigées dans ces langues seront triées par Google Panda. Le 15 août 2011 à 16:27 • Maxime Lambert

Among a backdrop of lush-looking rooms, the GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter and GRAMMY-nominated rapper take turns delivering their verses on the piano-based confessional.Directed by Joe Connor, the video also features a white horse and his handler, butterflies, interpretive dancers, a jeweled masked character, and silhouettes behind white curtains. The result is an ethereal video that seems to transcend the physical world, a perfect pairing for a song with lyrics such as, “Everyone prays in the end.”Rolling Stone reports that Smith got the idea for the song after visiting Mosul, Iraq.”We are all looking around at what’s happening in the world, and it is just messed up,” he said. “You’ve got no choice but to look up to the sky and put your hands together and pray for something to happen.”For those who want to experience “Pray” live, Smith’s 37-date North American tour launches June 18 in Toronto and will conclude Sept. 13 in Calgary. Tickets are available via his website.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier. Have A Google Home Device? “Talk To GRAMMYs”Read more

• Intel fits 16 neuromorphic Loihi chips on its Nahuku board. It uses 64 of the research chips to make its 8-million neuron Pohoiki Beach computer. Intel The human brain is made of something like 86 billion interconnected brain cells, or neurons. Intel has now taken a notable step toward a digital equivalent, building a computer system with 8 million digital neurons.The system, called Pohoiki Beach, is packed with 64 of Intel Labs’ Loihi chips and will be available to researchers who can help the chipmaker mature the technology and move it toward commercialization. Pohoiki Beach’s 8 million digital neurons are a significant step toward Intel’s goal of reaching 100 million later this year.”Pohoiki Beach will now be available to more than 60 ecosystem partners who will use this specialized system to solve complex, compute-intensive problems,” said Intel Labs Director Rich Uhlig, who unveiled the system at the DARPA Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) summit in Detroit.The effort shows how the tech industry, faced with difficulties speeding up conventional processors, is increasingly inspired by our own organic computers. It takes food and oxygen to keep our gray matter humming, but brains only use about 20 watts of power — that’s about as much as a modestly powerful PC processor.Intel’s neuromorphic Loihi research processor Intel Real products like Apple’s iPhone chips already ship with circuitry to accelerate brain-inspired technology, but Intel’s “neuromorphic” Loihi project is a significant step closer toward the way actual brains work — it even includes digital equivalents of the axons that neurons use to transmit signals to their neighbors, the dendrites that receive those messages, and the synapses that connect the two.Researchers already have used Loihi systems for tasks like simulating the tactile sensing of skin, controlling a prosthetic leg and playing foosball, Intel said.Processor speed improvements are harder to come by these days, with electronics miniaturization growing steadily harder and increasing power consumption a constant concern. As a result, chipmakers are redirecting their attention away from general-purpose CPUs — central processing units — and toward special-purpose chips that are faster at a limited set of operations.One major area for such specialization is graphics chips called GPUs. But chips that accelerate the neural network technology underpinning today’s AI software are a hot new area.Through ERI, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is helping promote chip advancements Intel’s chip work along with various other projects for things like security, photonics, and machine learning.

Reuters FileMarket regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has strongly condemned a body of overseas investor’s claim that the tighter KYC Know Your Client – norms would lead to outflows totalling a whopping $75 billion. Earlier in April this year, the SEBI had issued circular introducing the tighter KYC norms for the FPI investors.In a statement, SEBI said that “It is preposterous and highly irresponsible to claim that 75 billion dollars of FPI investment will move out of the country because of SEBI’s circular issued in April 2018.”The SEBI issued the statement as a response to an announcement made by AMRI – Asset Managers Roundtable of India – on behalf of 13 investors including, Morgan Stanley Asset Management, Kotak Mahindra UK, Edelweiss Capital, Enam AMC, Geosphere LLC and AMANSA Capital among others.Nandita Parker, President, AMRI had said that “The problem is that while the circular was issued to enhance KYC norms, it has instead resulted in restrictions on investments and in some cases, it has even placed a blanket ban on investments through certain FPIs.” Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Chairman Ajay Tyagi speaks at a news conference after its board meeting at SEBI headquarters in Mumbai on April 26, 2017. REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeA letter was sent to SEBI Chairman Ajay Tyagi on August 29 raised the concern on the issue with a copy to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ministry of Finance and the Reserve Bank of India.The letter had raised serious concern over the proposed tightening of KYC norms and stated “An immediate impact of the circular [if not amended] is that from December 31, 2018 [the date set by SEBI’s Circular dated August 21, 2018, for existing FPIs to ensure compliance with the stipulations of the circular], the said $75 billion investment will be disqualified from investing into India and will have to be withdrawn and liquidated within a short time frame, thereby adversely affecting the Indian Markets and Indian currency.”The market regulator on 10th April had issued a circular which stated that the entities like non-resident Indians (NRI), persons of Indian origin (PIO) and overseas citizen of India (OCI) cannot be the beneficial owners (BOs) of any foreign portfolio investor.
EmonA college girl was hacked in Netrakona on Tuesday after she had refused love proposal of a stalker. She was at first rushed to Kendua Upazila Health Complex and later shifted to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital.Police and locals said the Kishoreganj girl used to stay with her family in a rented flat at Kendua. The stalker, Emon Mia, 24, had long been trying to convince her to his love proposal.Around 3:30pm on Tuesday, Emon called the girl out and tried to convince her again. When she refused, he cut her lock and then hacked her indiscriminately. He later fled the scene when locals rushed in hearing her cry.Mostafizur Rahman, a physician at Kendua Upazila Health Complex, said she had sustained as many as 15 hacks in different parts of her body.Police said they are trying to nab Emon.

Backwards compatibility isn’t going to feature on the PlayStation 4 simply because the hardware architecture is completely different to the PS3. But Sony is working on utilizing Gaikai to stream old games instead. How long that will take is anyone’s guess, but it certainly won’t be in place for the console’s launch.When you mention backwards compatibility people usually think of disc-based games, but Sony has confirmed what should be obvious: if you currently have a bunch of PSN download games sitting on your PS3, they won’t be making the journey with you to PSN on the PS4. They simply aren’t compatible and Sony has no way to emulate them.This shouldn’t come as a great surprise, but it does mean you will want to look after and keep hold of your PS3 if you have spent a lot of money buying download games. It might even be wise to invest in a new PS3 when they inevitably get a price drop closer to the PS4 launch to ensure continued play.The same is true of any save games you have. They won’t transfer and that shouldn’t be a problem because none of the games they are associated with will, either. However, if a developer updates a game for PS4, it would be nice to have the option of retaining your save game.We could be waiting months, even years before Gaikai offers to stream your PS3 games, and even then Sony may not allow you to resurrect games associated with an old PSN account. If a general PSN account transfer is offered at launch (highly likely), hopefully Sony will at least keep note of which games you purchased on PS3 and give you some kind of discount off future titles within each series.
I wonder if Gwyneth Paltrow has any beauty tips for wiping egg off her face.The actress, singer, and food writer made headlines last week when her lifestyle company Goop promoted wearables that claim to use “NASA space suit material” to “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies.”Body Vibes stickers—available online in packs of 10 ($60), 12 ($64), or 24 ($120)—are worn on the skin, near your heart, to promote relaxation, relieve pain, alleviate stress, stimulate productivity, increase strength, improve sleep quality, and neutralize a hangover.“Body Vibes stickers (made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear) come pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing them to target imbalances,” the Goop website said, as reported by Gizmodo.Except, the National Aeronautics and Space Agency does not use conductive carbon material for spacesuits.“Wow. What a load of BS this is,” Mark Shelhamer, former chief scientist at NASA‘s human research division, told Gizmodo.Cosmonauts’ suits, an agency representative explained, are made from synthetic polymers, spandex, and other components—none of which are carbon. Besides, even if they were lined with the element, it would be used to strengthen the suit, not monitor a wearer’s vital signs.Body Vibes stickers promote a healthy lifestyle (via Goop)“Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up,” Shelhamer said. “If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?”Goop and Body Vibes have since scrubbed all references to NASA from their sites.“We apologize to NASA, Goop, our customers and our fans for this communication error. We never intended to mislead anyone,” a Body Vibes spokeswoman told Geek in an email. “We have learned that our engineer was misinformed by a distributor about the material in question.“We regret not doing our due diligence before including a distributor’s information in the story of our product,” she continued. “However, the origins of the material do not [in] anyway impact the efficacy of our product. Body Vibes remains committed to offering a holistic lifestyle tool, and we stand by the quality and effectiveness of our product.”Neither Goop nor NASA immediately responded to a request for comment.Paltrow’s weekly lifestyle newsletter launched in 2008, encouraging readers to “nourish the inner aspect”—whatever that means. The email service later expanded into a full-blown website, which pedals advice like inserting golf-ball-sized jade eggs into women’s vaginas.So, you know, take these Body Vibes stickers with a cleansing grain of salt.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

February 26, 2015 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global This story originally appeared on CNBC The Hyperloop, just an idea in the mind of Elon Musk two years ago, is moving closer to becoming reality.Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has signed an agreement with a developer in central California to build a five mile Hyperloop line in an area along Interstate 5.”This is a phased process. We’ve done feasibility studies and now we will be able test all aspects of the Hyperloop,” said Ahlborn.The Hyperloop is the idea of Tesla Motors and Space Exploration Technologies founder Musk, who outlined a vision for transporting people at high speeds in a capsules that will be pushed through a series of tubes stretching over thousands of miles.”This is big step,” said Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of the JumpStartFund, which created Hyperloop Transportation Technologies last year. “It’s time to take the Hyperloop from concept and design and build the first one.”The deal signed with developers of Quay Valley in central California calls for construction to start next year and be completed by 2019. Ahlborn estimates the five mile Hyperloop will cost about $100 million to build.After announcing his idea, Musk said he would not fund or actively work on any projects to build the Hyperloop. Musk has since announced plans to build a Hyperloop test track in Texas. How will Hyperloop Transportation Technologies pay for the initial stretch?Much of the funding will come from an IPO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. Ahlborn is targeting the IPO to raise at least $100 million and come to the market later this year.”We’ve been contacting potential suppliers and we think this first commercial application of the Hyperloop will be successful when it is built,” he said.

The multi-year… read more November 26, 2018 — Women age 75 years and older should continue to get screening mammograms because of the comparatively high incidence of breast cancer found in this age group, according to a new study. The study was presented at the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 25-30.Guidelines on what age to stop breast cancer screening have been a source of confusion in recent years. In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) released controversial guidelines stating there was not enough evidence to assess benefits and harms of screening mammography in women age 75 and older. However, other professional groups advise that women may continue to undergo mammography screening as long as they are in good health.“Ongoing debate exists regarding the age to cease screening mammography,” said Stamatia V. Destounis, M.D., radiologist at Elizabeth Wende Breast Care LLC, in Rochester, N.Y. “Our findings provide important data demonstrating that there is value in screening women over 75 because there is a considerable incidence of breast cancer.”For the study, Destounis and colleagues analyzed data from 763,256 screening mammography exams at Elizabeth Wende Breast Care between 2007 and 2017. Screening-detected cancer was diagnosed in 3,944 patients. Further analysis was performed to identify the number and type of cancers diagnosed among women 75 years of age and older.There were 76,885 patients (10 percent) age 75 and older included in the study. The average age of the patients was 80.4. A total of 645 malignancies were diagnosed in 616 patients, for a cancer rate of 8.4 detections per 1,000 exams in this age group.“For the relatively small percentage of our screening population that was comprised of women 75 and older, the patients diagnosed in this population made up 16 percent of all patients diagnosed with screening-detected cancers,” Destounis said.Researchers also found that 82 percent of the malignancies diagnosed were invasive cancers, of which 63 percent were grade 2 or 3, which grow and spread more quickly. Ninety-eight percent of the cancers found were able to be treated surgically. Positive lymph nodes were reported at surgical excision in 7 percent of the patients. Seventeen cancers were not surgically treated due to advanced patient age or overall degraded patient health.“Most of the tumors found in this age group were invasive, and almost all of these patients — 98 percent — underwent surgery,” Destounis said.Mammography plays a critical role in the early detection of breast cancer, because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before a woman or her physician can feel them, and early detection leads to better treatment options and improved survival.Destounis advises women over 75 who are in relatively good health to continue routine screenings.“The benefits of screening yearly after age 75 continue to outweigh any minimal risk of additional diagnostic testing,” she said.Co-authors are Andrea L.

“Gabe Martin, Shaq Riddick, Ed Stinson and Robert Nkemdiche — he’s real close, but he’s not quite ready yet. All the rest of the guys are practicing. How much they practice — Ty (Mathieu), Justin (Bethel), Frostee (Rucker) — we’ll see.“(Mike) Iupati, (Earl) Watford, (Antoine) McClain and Brit Golden, they’re out.”Get all that?That’s 12 players who will not be on the field Sunday, and of that group, only Iupati comes as a surprise. Arians said the Pro Bowl guard has a sore knee, but otherwise did not seem that concerned. He also noted the hope is to have Nkemdiche back Wednesday in at least some capacity.With that out of the way, there’s also the matter of who the Cardinals are getting back.Receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who missed Wednesday’s practice and then the preseason tilt with the Chargers, will return. John Brown, who has been out for a few weeks with a concussion, was finally cleared to return, too.“Really, really good,” Arians said of what it means to have Brown on the field. “Try to get him back in shape so he doesn’t pull a muscle.”Mathieu, Bethel and Rucker were activated from the PUP list last week, though neither got on the practice field when the Cardinals were working with the San Diego Chargers. “They’ll be in individual periods, and we’ll see how that progresses, whether they do anything else,” Arians said of the trio.The sooner each can get back, the better the Cardinals will be.Arians said Bethel should not be too far behind with the mental side of things, so the question is how quickly he can get back into the swing of things.“It’s just a matter of going out there and doing it,” Arians said.As for Mathieu, who has been itching to return ever since tearing his ACL in Week 15 of last season, Arians would not say the defensive back’s passion has returned. Either way, it’s nice to have him back, the coach said.“It takes a little time to get in passion shape too,” he added with a smile.But Arians said there’s no doubt the PUP list players getting back now could put them on track to be ready for Week 1 against the Patriots, so long as their football conditioning can return.“Hitting and getting their pad level down, and all those things we’ve been doing for 15, 18 days.” – / 21 GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals are dinged up, sure. But in some ways, they are getting healthier.“Not practicing today, Asa Jackson, Elie Bouka, Alan Ball,” head coach Bruce Arians said prior to the team’s practice Sunday afternoon. “Alex Okafor, who has decided he is going to play with the bicep (tendon injury), it’s just a matter of getting the pain tolerance before we get him out there.
