Like the previous discoveries in recent months, the creator of this new technology is none other than Mark Cerny, designer of the PlayStation 4 and potentially the PlayStation 5. This new patent focuses on the bus of the machine and has for ambition to function in addition to the one that arose less than a month ago.In technical terms, a "bus " refers to the communication system between the different components inside electronic or computer devices. The patent mentions that Sony uses a method to deal with problems related to the bus interface when running an old application on a new device (PS4 game on PS5 for example).

Right now, the plan for CasperLabs is to support the majority of the research that Zamfir performs on PoS so that they can release a fully decentralized, sharded and scalable next generation blockchain. Zamfir added, in a discussion with CoinDesk, that he will be responsible for producing protocol specifications that support the CasperLabs team to help them understand the technology employed. Zamfir will not be taking on the coding of the blockchain however, as his role is purely for research purposes.So far, PoS has not really been involved in large scale testing. It is one of the many consensus models for cryptocurrency to eliminate the need to use proof of work mining, which involves solving a computational puzzle. Within the model, there are two designs that lead the way for implementation, and one of those was designed by Zamfir called Casper Correct by Construction (CBC).

Black Panther capped off a record setting year with an historic Oscar nomination last month, becoming the first ever Marvel film and first comic book movie, in general to earn a Best Picture nod. Director Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan are at the center of Black Panther's story, which tackles issues of family, nationalism and the elusive feeling of belonging, but the spectacular supporting cast is bolstered by the female presence, from the stately Queen Ramonda to the fierce fighters of the Dora Milaje. It was a significant creative choice not lost on Coogler, who has spoken openly about his drive to make female characters central to the film's story, which could have easily brushed the secondary characters aside to focus solely on the conflict between the Black Panther and Killmonger. But that wasn't the story he wanted to tell.

Our oracle is a fairly simple computer program we wrote that accepts 69 years of data on major film awards, ignores all but the most predictive variables, and returns a statistical model that can predict past winners with extraordinary accuracy. Even in a chaotic year for Hollywood, the model is still bullish on Roma, directed by Alfonso Cuar oacute;n and streamed on Netflix, as the leading contender for the top honors, assigning it a score of 45.5 out of 100, which is four times higher than the closest competition.That score represents the historical odds that films with the same accolades as Roma have gone on to win Best Picture, with one caveat: This model considers each film 's odds of success independently through the wide lens of history, not as an eight way race among this year 's nominees. Thus, the probabilities we computed for 2019 do not sum to 100%.

Ethics and the entertainment industry are often seen as being in conflict with one another; scandals arise based on charges which can vary in seriousness from minor to major. Social media platforms allow public outcry against the actions of musical artists no matter the genre of their music. Thus, the question must be asked: How far can the music be separated from its creator?Criticisms are often met with a response which is disproportionate to the purported crime, be it an over reaction to a minor incident or a dismissal of a more serious situation. Accusations of deep seated racism are met with the argument that good music is just that, regardless of its creator, whilst a song designed to parody the media s interpretation of the artist is met with unbridled hatred. Admittedly, this is an issue across the entertainment industry, but music s inherent link with the expression of the musician s self makes it a particularly difficult job to differentiate between art and its creator.
