From ancient Chinese medicine that saved millions of malaria impacted lives to the first mobile X ray units helping wounded soldiers, these are the stories of brilliant minds. For centuries, women have made significant contributions to the field of science. They ve discovered life saving remedies, devised world altering inventions, and produced far reaching research, but in many cases their invaluable advances are minimized or neglected.For too long, the STEM fields have been shaped by gender biases that exclude women and girls, past, present, and future. Unequal access to education, technologies, and leadership positions have steered countless bright female minds away from STEM careers and stalled their progress.
This week, a small but mighty canine named Bono took charge of the AstroTurf, handily walking away with a win in the toy group against his fellow diminutive dogs, sending the floppy haired, inquisitive little Havanese to the final Best in Show round against six fierce mdash; yet furry mdash; competitors: Bourbon the Whippet, Siba the McDonald;s fuel ed Standard Poodle, Conrad the Shetland Sheepdog, Daniel the golden retriever, Wilma the boxer and Vinny the wire fox terrier. (Siba would ultimately win the Best in Show title.)But Bono, who is all of two years old, wasn ''t pressed by the excitement. In fact, just a few hours before taking to the Madison Square Garden ''s grand stage, he could be found on a tucked away perch in the crowded hallway next to his fellow group winners and human team. Around him, eager fans and spectators shuffled by shoulder to shoulder as though queuing up for a celebrity sighting, camera phones outstretched, cooing over the collective din.
ALSO READ Researchers Work On Battery Power Sharing Tool, Swap Stations To Make EVs AffordableJapanese security firm TrendMicro recently reported on their blog that as many as nine software on the Android Play Store pretend to be applications that they are actually not. These applications are automatically installed usually under the garb of ”device speed booster ” and ”device cleaners ”. The problematic area that these applications then tread into is that they run scripts in the background which can abuse a user ''s data without their knowledge. These applications may install and pretend to be ”system software ” to stay away from the user ''s sight. The report also states that these risky apps have been downloaded well above 470,000 times from Google Play. These apps may usually be called something like "Speed clean " and "Super clean ".

It s a little short of a year since Sony s stricter policies regarding sexual content and themes in video games on the PlayStation 4 platform went into play. Since then we ve seen several games large and small censored on the platform but not on others. It doesn t stop at overly sexual content but also includes partial nudity, games with swimsuits, all sorts of themes that Sony had no problem with until early 2019 when the policy change dealt a hard blow to many indie games and has even affected some AAA titles.However, these censorship policies have only applied to more risque content. Apparently showing skin is frowned upon, but dicing people up with blades or blowing them away in a hail of gunfire is okay. You know my stance is that games are games, and they should remain untouched and appropriately rated by the ESRB, PEGI, or other systems to ensure that it doesn t end up in the hands of younger players without a parent or guardian purchase.
The report titled Governing Innovation: The Recipe for Portfolio Growth that surveyed over 1000 executives across 11 industries, reveals that the answer isn;t just adding more to the innovation budget, but to allow innovation to thrive in the right businesses. In order to do so, increased governance can create the right conditions for innovation to thrive in the right businesses. In other words, companies should allocate innovation investments based on their businesses; future potential and apply governance to extract value from those investments.While the research attempts to understand how organizations apply different types of innovation across their business portfolios, to get greater value from their innovation investments, the findings show that businesses have a long way to go in terms of governing innovation. As the report said, Less than one in eight companies governs innovation extensively, and those that do have achieved twice the revenue growth of the vast majority of companies that govern innovation in a more haphazard way.

On Saturday night, after reports surfaced that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo berated NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly for daring to ask him questions about Ukraine she told him ahead of time that she would ask (Mary Louise Kelly has since been removed from Pompeo '''''s plane on his upcoming trip to Europe and Central Asia), Don Lemon had Wajahat Ali and Rick Wilson on CNN to discuss the matter. Rick Wilson, a Republican political strategist, appeared to be loopy, and he ended up making fun of Donald Trump '''''s inability to read a map while also parroting Trump and his supporters '' mockery of "elitists, " like #8216;em Yankee intellectshchuals who go around reading books and asking for tall drinks instead of small ones, goddamn libruls.

The offending applications are Camero, callCam, and FileCrypt Manager, all three of which should obviously be avoided. The first two are masquerading as photo editing tools, while the third is pretending to be an Android file manager. In truth, they are designed to obtain root privileges on any device that downloads the apps in question. In plain terms, that means that a hacker will have full control of the device, and will have access to any and all passwords and personal information that has been stored on it. The process does not require any additional permissions once the app has been installed, so the victim is usually not aware that their device has been hacked.
"I think what is happening is sad ... I think it ''s just bad.

TwitterPinterestPhoto: Courtesy of Everett Collection NetflixFacebookTwitterPinterestThe nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards were announced Monday morning, and while there were some definite highlights (Florence Pugh, Parasite s sweep), it was a pretty poor showing for...well, anyone other than straight white men.Following in the Golden Globes footsteps, the academy didn t name a single woman in the best director category. Arguably even more jarring was the fact that zero performers of color were nominated in the best supporting actor and best supporting actress categories, though after past #OscarsSoWhite controversies, maybe we should collectively agree to keep our hopes ground level. How else to deal with the fact that 8 out of the 10 best supporting actress and best lead actress nominations went to blonde, Caucasian women in a year when Jennifer Lopez and Awkwafina gave career defining performances, not to mention So dam Park s breakout turn in Parasite?
TOKYO As 2019 drew to a close, Microsoft co founder and billionaire Bill Gates published a blog post that took many readers by surprise. "I think the rich should pay more than they currently do, and that includes Melinda and me," he wrote, referring to his wife.Gates noted that the U.S. government depends "overwhelmingly" on taxing income from labor wages and salaries. Instead, he argued it should raise the capital gains tax to draw more revenue from stock investments and real estate. The system "isn''t fair," he wrote. "I don''t see any reason to favor wealth over work the way we do today."
That is what England s outgoing Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, thinks, too. In her October 2019 special report on childhood obesity, her final advice to government on health issues, she doubted that the 2030 target could be reached without some really serious measures being introduced. So, in Time To Solve Childhood Obesity, she lists the bold measures she thinks need to be taken the same draconian and game changing measures that Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt promised but never delivered before they lost their jobs. The pity is that Davies will no longer be in the post to oversee her solutions take shape. There is not the space in this column to go through all 49 of them, but one should be looked at in detail. There s some history to go through and it s shaming.In advocating the routine measurement of children s weight and height, Dame Sally has attempted to right the wrongs wrought on a generation of children. The wrongs began in 2002 when Whitehall failed to implement a similar proposal made by her predecessor, Sir Liam Donaldson. At a stroke, the government condemned millions of schoolchildren to grow into obesity without the professional checks on their health to which they should be entitled. It is sadly ironic that animals are measured yearly during health checks in zoos and annual MOTs ensure that our cars are in good working order, but with children the nation s future no such checks have been deemed relevant until now.
