Facebook Is Testing Paid Subscriptions
When Facebook launched Instant Articles in May 2015, publishers called on it to include a subscription option, but while Facebook explored the idea, it didn’t come to fruition partly over concerns that it would create roadblocks for its users to access content. The media companies using the platform found they weren’t making money on the feature on their own websites, which prompted more calls from publishers to charge users.

Facebook's subscription model could be tested at the end of the year with a small group of publishers and then rolled out more broadly in 2018. It is aiming for a diverse group in the pilot with both U.S. and international publishers taking part. The New York Times, Tronc, Hearst, The Economist, the U.K.’s Telegraph and Germany’s Bild have been briefed on the plans.

Facebook wants to spy on people through their smartphone camera and analyse the emotions on their face
CBI Insights found a patent granted in May which lets Facebook determine your emotion using pictures through your smartphone camera. The system could pick up data from the keyboard, mouse, touch pad, touch screen, or other input devices, and the patent mentions predicting emotion based on relative typing speed, how hard the keys are pressed, movement (using the phone’s accelerometer), location, and other factors.

The guy who invented those stupid password rules your company makes you use says he's sorry
The latest set of NIST guidelines recommends that people create long passphrases rather than gobbledygook words like the ones Bill thought were secure.

You're better off using rando ass passwords for every.single.account. and then a strong passphrase for however you secure them (unless you have wicked memory powers and can remember the phrases for a bunch of sites!).

Major Federal Climate Change Report leaked before Trump and Pruitt can bury it
“Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans,” the report’s executive summary informs readers. “Thousands of studies conducted by tens of thousands of scientists around the world have documented changes in surface, atmospheric and oceanic temperatures; melting glaciers; disappearing snow cover; shrinking sea ice; rising sea level; and an increase in atmospheric water vapor. ... The last few years have also seen record-breaking, climate-related weather extremes, as well as the warmest years on record for the globe.”

“There are no alternative explanations” to human industrial activity being the cause, it adds, and “no natural cycles are found in the observational record that can explain the observed changes in climate.”

Harvard academic believes Bitcoin could be worth over $100,000 by February 2021
Since bitcoin's inception, according to Porto, its price has doubled every eight months and seems to follow one of tech's "golden rules" — Moore's law. The rule, which was devised in 1965 by Intel cofounder Gordon Moore, describes the exponential improvements of digital technology.

Insanely fast robot will make Adidas shirts cheaper – and kill boatloads of jobs
Just another example of why the notion of bringing manufacturing back to the US is a fool's errand. The “Sewbot” uses cameras and bots to cut and sew the soft fabric, a task which has eluded other forms of automation. Until now, the task was still best-suited to humans with sewing machines.

Tang Xinhong, chairman of Tianyuan, said:
"We will install 21 production lines. When fully operational, the system will make one T-shirt every 22 seconds. We will produce 800,000 T-shirts a day for Adidas … Around the world, even the cheapest labor market can’t compete with us. I am really excited about this."

This is just the latest example of automation coming for our jobs... and we're only just now seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Global evidence of extreme intuitive moral prejudice against atheists
The recent rise in secularism in Western countries has not overwritten intuitive anti-atheist prejudice. Entrenched moral suspicion of atheists suggests that religion’s powerful influence on moral judgements persists, even among non-believers in secular societies.

Facebook begins testing Stories on the desktop
Facebook Stories, which the shamelessly ripped from Snapchat for Instagram, is coming to Facebook desktop... at least in test.

Stories consist of photos and video that are visible for 24 hours before they disappear. Unlike the mobile version of Facebook the Stories feature is no longer at the top of the page, but is instead off to the right side, where it’s at least a bit less intrusive.

Japan has ice-cream that doesn't melt
Because OF COURSE Japan has ice-cream that doesn't melt!

""Polyphenol liquid has properties to make it difficult for water and oil to separate, so a popsicle containing it will be able to retain the original shape of the cream for a longer time than usual, and be hard to melt," Tomihisa Ota, a professor emeritus of pharmacy at Kanazawa University, who developed the popsicles, told the Asahi Shimbun.

A reporter who held out a popsicle in 28°C weather (82°F), found that the icy treat "retained its original shape" even after five minutes in the sun — and still tasted cool, even."

Rainbows are circles, not arches
Mind blown
This video, shot by a crane operator working on the 1,500 ft tall Lakhta Centre skyscraper in St Petersburg, Russia, shows it in all it's round glory.

In theory, every rainbow is a circle, but thanks to the Earth's curvature, only the upper half can be seen. Go to a higher point, like the top of a construction crane or an airplane, and rainbows are revealed to be a complete circle.

If the Boy Scouts Had Any Credibility Left, They Threw It Away at Jamboree
The Scouts’ National Jamboree takes place every four years and it's not out of like for a President make a brief address. Nobody said it had to be classy I guess... Trump turned what should have been a patriotic, uncontroversial speech into a self-aggrandizing political rally with the attendees essentially pledging their allegiance to him.

While the political leaning was totally out of place at an event like this, Trump took it a step beyond that, telling the Scouts present how awesome it was to own a yacht and how a friend of his totally got laid all the time.

“[My friend] sold his company for a tremendous amount of money, and he went out a bought a big yacht. And he had a very… interesting life. I won’t go into any more than that ‘cause you’re Boy Scouts. So I’m not going to tellyou what he d... more »

When I was a kid, it was a group that was synonymous with leadership, self-reliance, and generosity. Then, at least for me, there was a time when the anti-gay, anti-atheist bigotry overrode all of that. And now this... what they allowed Trump to do violated their own policies on scout participation in political events.

"Uniformed unit members and leaders may participate in flag ceremonies at political events and may lead the Pledge of Allegiance; however, they should retire after the ceremony and not remain on the speakers’ platform or in a conspicuous location where attendees or viewers could construe their presence as an endorsement or symbol of support. In addition, photos of candidates or Scouts in uniform or with BSA marks and logos are not allowed in political campaign materials of any kind.

Volunteers and professionals must be alert to situations that would imply BSA favoritism for one candidate over another. Strict observance of our longstanding policy against the active participation of uniformed Scouts and leaders in political events is mandatory." - http://troopleader.org/policy-on-scout-participation-in-political-events/

I loved scouting when I was a kid; I'm so glad I didn't let my son join. ___

Judge denies demand for privacy assessment on Trump voter fraud data request
A federal judge on Monday refused to block President Donald Trump's advisory panel from demanding that the states hand over their registered voters' full names, political affiliations, addresses, dates of birth, criminal records, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers, and other personal identifying information, including whether they voted in elections the past decade.

The judge limited the commission to collecting only what each state could provide according to its own privacy laws and as many as 44 states said they can't provide it under their own state laws.

Trump claims that millions of votes were cast illegally in favor of Clinton and that's why this needs to be done.

Buddhism on the Blockchain
"Last week, startup company Lotos published its new project on Reddit aiming to create a decentralized religious community, supporting Buddhism and meditation, based on the Ethereum blockchain. According to the company’s white paper, the community’s structure will be segmented into three parts: “an off-blockchain software platform” connecting the teachers and the students; “an internal economy supported by ERC20 tokens purchased by subscription fees and a central banker smart contract;” and “a website and
database backend connected to the network with Swarm.”"

This isn't bad in and of itself... but I can see how many Buddhists would be against it. I've never met a teacher who charges a fee. Yes, there are centers that do and/or you may have to pay for your 'space' at a center (for a retreat or something), but asa practice teac... more »

Yes, there are centers that do and/or you may have to pay for your 'space' at a center (for a retreat or something), but as a practice teachers do not accept money. So while curious I can see how this could be seen as problematic... and apparently so do Lotos backers as they are now saying, "Move away from 'Buddhist’ to ‘Secular Meditation’.”

Microsoft's next big Windows update will use AI to fight malware
The Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 will enable PCs to take advantage of an antivirus that picks up on malware behavior on any cloud-connected system and protects other computers running the OS.

To prevent the next global malware crisis, an upcoming update will rely on machine learning from more than 400 million computers running Windows 10, Microsoft said Tuesday.

In its Fall Creators Update, Microsoft will use a wide range of data coming from its cloud programs such as Azure, Endpoint and Office to create an artificial intelligence antivirus that can pick up on malware behavior, said Rob Lefferts, director of program management for Windows Enterprise and Security.

The upgrade is coming to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, with new features like browser-focused Application Guard and cloud-related Device Guard and Exploit Guard.

If new malware is detected on any computer running Windows 10 in the world, Microsoft said it will be able to develop a signature for it and protect all the other users worldwide. The first victim will be safe as well because the virus will be set off in a virtual sandbox on the cloud, not on the person's device.___

Microsoft is Shutting Down Docs.com
Microsoft announced today that their Docs.com service will shut down on 15 December 2017. I didn't even realize it started as a partnership with Facebook back in 2010. It was after the redesigning in 2015 that I became aware of it. It feels like a short lifespan... even if I never used it.

According to the support document that was released today about the retirement of the service the features in Docs.com will be replaced by other services from the Redmond company:

"Following Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn, SlideShare has joined the Microsoft family, and represents the ideal platform for publishing your Word, PowerPoint, and PDF content with its audience of 70 million professionals, and vast content library.

Facebook wants to spy on people through their smartphone camera and analyse the emotions on their face
CBI Insights found a patent granted in May which lets Facebook determine your emotion using pictures through your smartphone camera. The system could pick up data from the keyboard, mouse, touch pad, touch screen, or other input devices, and the patent mentions predicting emotion based on relative typing speed, how hard the keys are pressed, movement (using the phone’s accelerometer), location, and other factors.

Time frame depends on complexity and nature of the issue. We cannot provide or commit to an ETA unless we actually know values of all variables involved in this. However , since our senior admins are already aware of the issue and are working on it, it should be resolved at the earliest possible.
8:44:42 PM

8:46:32 PM

Neha N
Unfortunately, he is not available at the moment. I will pass the ticket to him and once he is available, he will take care of it.
9:33:23 PM
Paul Spoerry
Since I've been a long time customer, and you cannot provide when I was supposedly notified I could no longer speak to someone via voice call, I don't think that asking to be contacted is extraordinary do you?
9:33:34 PM
Paul Spoerry
No... I'd like to speak to someone now.
9:33:57 PM
Paul Spoerry
Please provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number.

9:39:14 PM
Neha N
Unfortunately, he is not available at this moment and I will not be able to provide the details at what time he will arrive.
9:42:21 PM
Paul Spoerry
So the legal position of ASO is that you cannot provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number, nor can you tell me when (this year) I can no longer talk to a supervisor, nor can you tell me when that was legally changed so that I can no longer talk to a supervisor, nor can you explain a 3 month old, unanswered support ticket, nor will you put me in touch with anyone who an answer the above?
9:43:45 PM
Paul Spoerry
I'm asking for clarification so that when I submit the above to the US Better Business Bureau (or the 3+ million people in my G+ groups) I know what ASO's official position is on this topic.
9:45:22 PM
Neha N
I have not mentioned that, I cannot provide the legal details. I have updated the ticket to provide those details.
9:46:31 PM
Neha N
You have to wait for the response from our ticket admins and you can reply to the ticket for any details.
9:46:40 PM
Paul Spoerry
Not mentioned what specifically?
9:48:00 PM
Neha N
I have not mentioned that we do not provide LEGAL business name and address. I have mentioned that, I do not have the info right now and I will update the ticket to get that details.
9:48:32 PM
Paul Spoerry
How can you NOT know the legal entity for which you work?
9:49:04 PM
Paul Spoerry
I've waited for 3 month on my oldest ticket? Is this the position of ASO support for this support chat and the 3 month old ticket?
9:49:36 PM
Paul Spoerry
Please provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number.
9:51:55 PM
Neha N
Those information will be with the legal team and I was not able to contact them at this moment.
9:52:12 PM

There is nothing I can do much at this moment. You have to wait for their response.
9:52:33 PM
Paul Spoerry
I'd like to be contacted via phone then.

Alexa is getting updated to have more useful reminders
Now... they just need to free those reminders from their abysmal mobile app. Don't get me wrong... I have three Echo's and love being able to walk into my bedroom and say, "Alexa, bedroom lights on." and watch the lights enable. But for reminders... it needs better integration with my default calendar (Google), or my default task app (Wunderlist), etc. Amazon has built a really great home unit but their mobile app stinks. And yes... I realize they want to lock you into their app but if they're going to do that then they need to make the app a pleasure to use.

Even the CEO of Goldman Sachs is tweeting at Donald Trump—and he never tweets
The head of Goldman Sachs joined Twitter in 2011...his first and only tweet was to criticize President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the Paris Climate Agreement. The climate agreement bound every country on the planet, besides Syria, Nicaragua, and now the United States, to work to fight climate change.
