Solid Sands: the day that GNU-C++ -Os broke

first_imgWe spent a good day of debugging a few of our C++ tests before a pattern emerged. We are working on a project to support freestanding C and C++ environments with the SuperTest test and validation suite for C and C++ compilers. A freestanding environment is defined to support only a subset of the C and C++ libraries. Its goal is to allow applications to run on targets that do not have an extensive run-time system like a proper OS. Instead, it allows programs to run on ‘bare-metal’. This is useful for all kinds of embedded applications.One of the goals in this project is to minimize the memory requirements of the SuperTest, so we use the compiler with the memory optimization option -Os .Several C++ tests, related to exception handling and inheritance, suddenly failed in the new freestanding configuration.When tests fail like this, the first thing to suspect is our own changes. After all, the compiler used is the default g++ compiler on a fully up-to-date x86 Ubuntu environment. Many thousands (millions?) of mission-critical systems use GNU-C++ and Ubuntu. Space-X, just to name a high-profile example, uses C++ and Linux on x86 in their rockets too.Here is one such test. Yes, we know this is not nice C++, but we are not in the business of writing nice C++. Our job is to go near the edge of the language specification to verify the correct behavior of its implementation.    #include    class A {            virtual void f(){};        public:            int x;            A(int in): x(in) {};    };    class B: public A {        public:            int y;            B(int in):A(in-1), y(in) {};    };    int test(void) {        int res;        B b(2);        A* bp = &b;        void* vp = dynamic_cast(bp);        if (  ((A*)vp)->x == 1           && ((B*)vp)->y == 2           ) {            return 1;   // PASS        } else {            return 0;   // FAIL        }    }    int main (void) {        assert (test ());    }The code is not complicated, but it has some unnecessary, though well-defined, type-casting. Class A is inherited by class B and both have their own instance variable, x and y respectively. The instantiation of an object of class B , in the second line of the function test , initializes these variables with the values 1 and 2 . After two type casts, the if statement verifies these values.Let us first admire the beauty of the x86-64 code generated by g++ for the function test() with the option -O1 :test():  mov DWORD PTR [rsp-8], 1  mov DWORD PTR [rsp-4], 2  mov rdx, QWORD PTR vtable for B[rip]  movabs rax, 8589934593  cmp QWORD PTR [rsp-8+rdx], rax  sete al  movzx eax, al  retA::f():  rep retThe compiler knows the layout of the object of type B . With the first two moves, it sets the values of the two variables x and y . Then it compares the values of object b ’s fields with the 64-bit immediate 8589934593 . In hexadecimal, this value is easier to understand: 0x200000001 . The compiler does two comparisons of 32-bit values in one 64-bit comparison! That is a clever move. So far so good.But now compile the code with -Os , for size optimization. The generated code becomes:test():  mov rdx, QWORD PTR vtable for B[rip]  mov DWORD PTR [rsp-8], 1  movabs rax, 8589934593  cmp QWORD PTR [rsp-8+rdx], rax  sete al  movzx eax, al  retDo you see what is missing? Somehow, the compiler has forgotten to initialize b ‘s variable y to 2 ! And thus our test-program fails at the assert.This is a serious error. Due to the optimization that turns two comparisons into one, the compiler ‘forgets’ that the y field of the object b is used. A def-use analysis after the optimization of the two comparisons then sees no use of y . Therefore the compiler concludes that the initialization of the field y is redundant, and removes it. Is this behavior limited to comparison optimization in combination with some liberal type-casting? Perhaps, but there is no guarantee for that.It is not the only error. There are also errors in the generated exception handling code when -Os is used. The version of GNU-C shown here is 7.3.0 because that is the current version on Ubuntu. We tried different versions of GNU-C, also for ARM64 targets and not Ubuntu related, and they are all affected. We must conclude that it is not safe to use g++ in combination with the -Os option for 64-bit targets.Compiler developers run many tests to prevent that errors like these slip through. But compilers are complicated and they have so many configuration options that no compiler supplier can state upfront that your particular use case is verified.If your application domain is mission-critical or even safety-critical, you need to set up compiler validation for the compiler and for the use cases that are specific to you. If that is beyond your scope, then at least verify that your compiler supplier uses SuperTest. SuperTest provides you with a better chance of staying ahead of compiler errors than any other method that we know of. Let’s hope that Space-X does not use g++ with the -Os option.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous FPGA-based frameworks speed blockchain processingNext Arm, Cadence and Xilinx introduce Arm Neoverse System Development Platformlast_img read more

Australia set for marathon home season as CA releases fixtures for 2019-2020 season

first_imgAustralia’s international schedule will stretch into late-March for the first time in 41 years in 2020 after the country’s cricket board was unable to cut a deal with India to move a one-day tour.Cricket Australia had hoped to host New Zealand in an ODI series in January but Aaron Finch’s team will instead travel to the subcontinent after India’s board declined to shift their home series.That has pushed the three-match New Zealand series back to the middle of March, with the final ODI in Hobart on March 20 making it the latest finish to a home international schedule since Australia hosted Pakistan for a Test in Perth in 1979.”CA took the position that while January was our preference for these ODI matches there are times we need to honour our commitments to work in the greater context of international cricket scheduling,” CA’s Peter Roach said.”We evaluated different options for an alternative and saw the most value in the March opportunity to extend our window in the traditional cricket season.”Ten venues, five visiting teams and a total of 28 matches will make up the 2019-20 international summer of cricket pic.twitter.com/bFS3mTNDT4cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) May 6, 2019The Gabba returns as venue of the opening Test of the summer in a two-match series against Pakistan from Nov. 21.Last summer, the Brisbane ground was snubbed as one of the venues for the marquee Test series against India and relegated to a January Test match venue for the short Sri Lanka tour.advertisementAdelaide Oval will host the second and final Test against Pakistan, a day-night match, from Nov. 29.Australia also host New Zealand in a day-night Test at Perth Stadium from Dec. 12, before the three-match series moves to the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the traditional Boxing Day Test and to Sydney in the New Year.Steve Smith and David Warner gave fans plenty to smile about in Brisbane yesterday pic.twitter.com/ufgL2imcJ7cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) May 6, 2019In a tweak to the usual day-night scheduling, the Perth Test will start at 1 p.m. local time and finish at 8 p.m. to cater to Australia’s dominant TV audience in the east of the country.It will also have the longer 40-minute lunch break at the first interval, while the Adelaide pink ball Test will continue to have the 20-minute tea break between the first and second sessions with the longer “dinner” break in the evening.The international summer opens in late-October with back-to-back three-match Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.Women’s international cricket will also play a prominent role in the schedule as Australia play a T20 tri-series against England and India from late-January in the leadup to hosting the women’s T20 World Cup from Feb. 21.Men’s fixtures:Oct 27 Australia v Sri Lanka, 1st T20 (Adelaide Oval)Oct 30 Australia v Sri Lanka, 2nd T20 (Gabba)Nov 1 Australia v Sri Lanka, 3rd T20 (MCG)Nov 3 Australia v Pakistan, 1st T20 (SCG)Nov 5 Australia v Pakistan, 2nd T20 (Canberra)Nov 8 Australia v Pakistan, 3rd T20 (Perth)Nov 21-25 Australia v Pakistan, 1st Test (Gabba)Nov 29-Dec 3 Australia v Pakistan, 2nd Test (Adelaide Oval)*Dec 12-16 Australia v New Zealand, 1st Test (Perth)*Dec 26-30 Australia v New Zealand, 2nd Test (MCG)Jan 3-7 Australia v New Zealand, 3rd Test (SCG)Mar 13 Australia v New Zealand, 1st ODI (SCG)*Mar 15 Australia v New Zealand, 2nd ODI (SCG)Mar 20 Australia v New Zealand, 3rd ODI (Hobart)** Denotes day-night matchlast_img read more

World Cup 2019: Sarfaraz Ahmed wants to forget Pakistan’s bad opening day

first_imgPakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed Friday said he expected a “hard” World Cup opener against the West Indies but found solace in Mohammad Amir returning to wicket-taking ways.Pakistan were handed a seven-wicket thrashing by the West Indies after being bowled out for 105 in a dismal display of batting. It was Pakistan’s 11th ODI loss in a row.Pakistan vs West Indies, World Cup 2019: Report | Highlights”First of all the start is very crucial here. You know, with the 10:30 start, as I told you before in the last press conference, the start is very crucial for our team. That is why we wanted to bowl first. I think at the start we lost too many wickets. That’s why we didn’t come back into the game,” Sarfaraz said at the post-match press conference.Some of the batsmen were bounced out while the others fell to poor shot selection.Asked to comment on Pakistan’s pathetic batting performance, the captain said: “We expected a hard game but we knew we have what it takes to play and win. But we lost so many wickets up front when we were batting because of those couple of short balls.”However, Pakistan managed to get one positive out of the game and that was pacer Mohammad Amir finally getting among the wickets. In fact, he took all three wickets to fall in the West Indies’ innings.”We definitely bowled well. It was good to have Mohammad Amir back in form, we know what he is capable of and it will be good for us in the coming matches.”advertisementAt the same venue, they face a massive challenge on Monday when they face tournament favourites England. The hosts had blanked Pakistan 4-0 in the ODI series ahead of the World Cup.”First we have to back ourselves and not think too much about what happened today. That match is gone, so inshallah we have the type of players who can win the next match for us,” Sarfaraz added.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Shoaib Akhtar, Ramiz Raja horrified after Pakistan’s abject batting showAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Why perennial slow-starters Pakistan should not lose heartAlso See:last_img read more

Late rally against France cannot hide England’s breakdown failure in Paris

first_imgSix Nations 2018 France 22-16 England: how the players rated in the Six Nations game Share on Twitter Reuse this content Uninspired England’s title hopes ended in scrappy defeat by France Share on LinkedIn The penalty try for France ensured the volume – already high – was turned up further and, while this can be one of the more hostile environments to be chasing a deficit in, England lost their way. The bench was emptied but the problem was that it was full of players – James Haskell, Mike Brown, Richard Wigglesworth – far better suited to starting.A late linebreak from Ben Te’o led to a period of pressure as Farrell began to play what he saw. It brought to mind Danny Cipriani’s late cameo here not long before the 2015 World Cup – a fly-half having the courage of his convictions and suddenly making it seem simple. That defeat spooked the England management to the extent that it was the start of their demise. Jones has far longer to prepare his squad for Japan 2019 but how he responds to this setback will be just as fascinating. Support The Guardian Sportblog Share on Messenger Read more Share on Facebook Read more England rugby union teamcenter_img Share on WhatsApp France rugby union team Share on Pinterest blogposts The battle was lost and the war long gone with barely a shot fired in anger until the closing stages. Thus did England unravel in Paris to the extent they are now at their lowest ebb under Eddie Jones. A late glimpse of what Owen Farrell can do when he is let off the leash may make for a silver lining, if he is given free rein from fly-half in the future. But make no mistake, the clouds looming over English heads have blackened.England were beaten by an underrated French side who were thrown together at the start of the championship but, led by the superb Guilhem Guirado, defended resolutely and bossed the breakdown. Still, it was a French side who tripped, fell and stumbled across the finishing line. For all that England rallied and were pushing for a winning try at the end, a strong last 10 minutes cannot mask their failings.

They conceded three penalties there inside the opening quarter and continued in a similar vein thereafter. In total England conceded 16 penalties – “The difference in the game,” said Jones – and it is hard to believe they have been so ill-disciplined in his tenure before. They had been warned that Mathieu Bastareaud was as effective at the breakdown as Scotland’s fetchers, and Jones’s refusal to alter his back row now looks all the more baffling. Sam Underhill may have suffered an untimely injury but doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome is not the stuff of champions.Equally concerning to Jones (right) will be just how rudderless England were in the second half until Farrell forgot the script, maybe even forgot he was captain for the day, and made a telling intervention for Jonny May’s try.It would be easy to say Dylan Hartley’s leadership was missed – and certainly the first 60 minutes hardly made for Farrell’s finest hour – but this was a chance for England to reassert their dominance of Europe; to prove that Murrayfield was indeed an off day and to blow France apart. They did not come close to doing so and they have now lost their last three away matches to the old Five Nations – when such a premium is placed on winning it can backfire badly when the habit is lost. Win, lose or draw against Ireland, this has been a campaign in which they have regressed under Jones, whose priorities must be to appoint an attack coach who can focus on the breakdown.Jones had predicted a “slogathon” and at times one could almost hear England’s gears grinding. This may not be a side built to carve teams open but, when the bludgeon was not working, there was no sign of a blade with which England could scythe their way through France’s defence. One-out passes to willing forwards are all well and good but will get one nowhere if the ball is not recycled quickly enough.That Farrell decided that England would kick at goal whenever within his or Elliot Daly’s range gave a clue as to how they would approach their bonus-point mission. Grind France down, build a lead, break their spirit and hope superior fitness would lead to a flurry of late tries. The only occasions on which England looked to threaten the try line in the opening half were when Daly came off his wing and joined the line. It rarely got better.

Deltamarin, Aker Arctic Flaunt Arctic Tanker Design

first_imgzoom Deltamarin Ltd and Aker Arctic Technology Inc have jointly developed a modern Aframax-sized tanker concept for arctic use, focusing on safe operations. The Arctic Aframax tanker is intended for crude oil and oil product transports. The vessel is strengthened to ice class PC5 level (equals approximately Russian Maritime Register of Shipping category ARC6) and is capable of continuously breaking thicker than one-metre level ice. She can operate on the Northern Sea Route during the extended summer months, and with assistance even longer. During the winter months the vessel can operate in other sub-arctic sea areas such as the Baltic Sea or Sakhalin. “The design integrates optimised ice breaking and open water performance as well as the latest energy efficiency features applied together with the Polar Code requirements. This unique combination results in an affordable building and improved transport economy by cost efficient operation. The design can be fine-tuned according to the customer’s wishes,” Deltamarin’s Director of Ship Design Markku Miinala and Aker Arctic’s Project Manager Riku Kiili said in a joint statement.The bow and hull shape of the vessel have the best balance of open water performance with icebreaking capabilities. The hull is equipped with an Ice Load Monitoring System, which measures ice loads from the hull and provides online support to the officers ensuring safe operations. The system will also help the ship owner in the long-term by analysing the data and creating information for the optimal operations. The emphasis has also been on winterisation for cold climates in all aspects of the concept design.The vessel is equipped with two CP-propellers and shaft lines directly coupled with slow speed diesel engines. The vessel can also be fitted to run on LNG with dual fuel engines. Further there is a possibility for two bow thrusters and shaft PTO/PTI (Power Take Off / Power Take In) systems. A special focus has been on developing an improved command bridge, where the new Aker Arctic ARC Bridge Concept was used.last_img read more

NORDLB Sells USD 3 Bn Ship Portfolio

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Germany’s Norddeutsche Landesbank (NORD/LB) has decided to sell one of its ship financing portfolios to an unnamed investor for around EUR 2.7 billion (USD 3.09 billion). As informed, the portfolio comprises a total of 263 ships with a non-performing loan (NPL) portion of some 90%.What is more, the bank’s NPL portfolio, which groups together the legacy problem assets from ship financing, should be almost completely run off by the end of 2019, as disclosed by Thomas Bürkle, Chairman of NORD/LB.According to NORD/LB, the transaction including 263 ships was preceded by a confidential bidding process which was carried out separately and independently from the bidding process for a minority stake in NORD/LB. The bidding process was launched in autumn 2018 as part of the bank’s transformation program.To remind, World Maritime News recently reported that two equity investors, Cerberus Capital Management and Centerbridge Partners, submitted a joint offer to buy a 24.9 stake each in the bank.However, the bank has rejected their offer and decided to focus on a joint solution with the German Savings Banks Association (DSGV) under public law. DSGV and the owners of the bank, Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, will inject fresh capital into NORD/LB.“With the model decided upon on Thursday, we now have a concrete solution for a joint capital strengthening of the bank by the DSGV and the owners of the bank.  When this solution is implemented, the bank’s capital ratios will rise again tangibly, thus meeting all requirements under supervisory law,” the bank said in a statement.last_img read more

Facebook aims to reduce antivaxxer messages ads as part of safety campaign

first_imgVANCOUVER — A British Columbia mother who launched a petition urging parents against vaccination to home school their children says Facebook’s plan to tackle misinformation about immunization doesn’t go far enough.Katie Clunn of Maple Ridge says the social media giant should outright ban any posts against immunization instead of reducing their distribution.Nearly 45,000 people have signed Clunn’s petition since she started it about three weeks ago after a measles outbreak that has now reached at least 17 cases in Metro Vancouver.So-called anti vaxxers have used social media to spread misinformation about the highly contagious disease, some maintaining the measles, mumps and rubella or MMR vaccine causes autism despite that belief being repeatedly debunked through scientific research.Facebook says it aims to reduce the ranking of groups and pages that spread misinformation and will reject such ads when it finds them but simply removing “provocative thinking” will not build awareness around facts.Clunn says the site that has been widely accused of allowing misinformation to continue on a range of topics needs to do more to protect children from “dangerous” groups that deal in paranoia, not science.

Summit of G20 countries must help lower global trade barriers – UN

“Leaders of the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh [which United States President Barack Obama will host] will have the opportunity to throw their weight behind a Doha development deal,” UN World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Pascal Lamy said, referring to the name of the current world trade negotiations which began in Doha, capital of Qatar, in 2001.“Leadership is about responsibility. Failure to act will be hard felt by the entire international community,” he told the Trade and Development Board of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva.The talks have snagged over the formulas and other methods to be used to cut tariffs and agricultural subsidies, and a range of related provisions. Agreeing on modalities would determine the scale of reductions in tariffs on thousands of industrial and agricultural products and future levels of farm subsidies in the WTO’s member countries. Other issues include services.As he has for several years, Mr. Lamy said he was hopeful for a conclusion to the long-running Doha negotiations. But he added: “At last year’s session, I began my remarks by noting that I had hoped to report to you that we had successfully concluded negotiations on agriculture and industrial modalities to move on to the final phase of the Doha negotiations. Unfortunately, that was not the case.”There has been progress of late, he said, including a “successful gathering” of trade ministers in India at the beginning of September, he said. “What is outstanding in the Doha round is doable and a deal is within reach, but to get there, we still need a translation of the current global political support into tangible negotiating moves,” he added.Mr. Lamy said the global recession was being felt all over the world but had been most devastating in developing countries, which have the fewest resources for coping. He added that WTO efforts to free up additional financing for trade “oils” the process and steps had been taken to advance the massive Aid for Trade programme and to limit any trade protectionism put into effect by governments to cope with the impact of the crisis.Developing countries “cannot afford multi-billion dollar stimulus packages, and therefore are at the mercy of the global economic system for their recovery.”UNCTAD Secretary-General Supachai Panitchpakdi said recent comments that a recovery, frequently referred to by the term “green shoots,” should be treated with caution. “While we are seeing green shoots at the moment, the issue of unemployment and trade contraction remains a serious concern” for developing countries, he warned.Over the past decade, trade has become an extremely important vehicle for economic growth for these nations, Mr. Supachai noted. Between 1995 and 2007, trade expanded to account for more than 50 per cent of developing countries’ domestic output.Then the crisis hit, and it “has been quite devastating – a deep and sudden contraction,” and one that was especially damaging for developing countries that had done what they were advised to do and had opened their economies effectively to international markets, he added. Recently there has been an upturn in exports for some of these countries, but “we cannot really be saying that we are now seeing a recovery.“Countries should not walk away from trade, but some rethinking seems to be necessary. One matter is how to reduce export dependencies by being more diversified, not only in terms of major products but in terms of new products and new areas, and this is why growing ‘South-South’ trade is so important.”South-South is the term used for rapidly growing exchanges of goods and services between developing nations. Possibilities worth exploring include environmental products, Mr. Supachai said. 16 September 2009A top United Nations trade official today called on the leaders of the G20 group of industrialized and developing countries at their summit meeting next week to ensure success of talks aimed at lowering trade barriers around the world. read more

British futurist in charge of US cryogenic facility reveals plans to freeze

first_imgMore’s fascination with cryopreservation started in 1972 when he saw a children’s science fiction television show called Time Slip that featured characters being frozen in ice.He said: “By the time I was sixteen I was interested in life extension – not just health but extending the maximum life span.”After completing a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at St Anne’s College, Oxford University, he became an “internationally recognised advocate of the effective and ethical use of technology for life extension and cryopreservation”.“I really do think it will become a normal practice in the future,” he told the documentary.“At some point people will look back on the present and scratch their heads and wonder why we threw our loved ones in the ground or into these big oven to incinerate them when they would have been preserved.”Dr More said rather than having his entire body frozen, he plans to have just his head severed and preserved – a practice called neuropreservation. Dr More is the President and CEO of Alcor Life Extension FoundationCredit:News Scan A British ‘futurist’ in charge of one of the world’s largest cryogenic facilities has compared himself to Leonardo Da Vinci, saying it is just a matter of time before science advances to the point where preserved bodies can be revived after death.Dr Max More, who was born in Bristol and went to Oxford University, also revealed he has plans to preserve just his head in the future, saying “the rest of my body is replaceable”.He is the President and CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation, in Scottsdale, Arizona – a facility which began storing bodies in 1982. A 14-year-old girl became the youngest British person to be cryo-preserved earlier this weekCredit:News Scan Earlier this year, a 14-year-old girl who died of cancer became the youngest Briton to be cryogenically frozen in the hope she can be “woken up” and cured in the future after winning a landmark court case.The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, arrived at the only other crypto-preservation facility in the US, the Cryonics Institute in Michigan, at the end of October. She is their 143rd patient.“It’s an unusual job to be running a cryonics organisation,” said Dr More earlier this year in a documentary by Galactic Public Archives.“It’s impossible to give a date to say when we can revive people….it could be decades, a century.“We are like Leonardo Da Vinci who could design wings and helicopter which could work but he didn’t have the tools to build them back then.“Of course we are developing the technology to reduce the damage done to our patients to get them cryo-preserved but we don’t know exactly how we will reverse that process right now.” “It’s not decapitation. We aren’t taking the head off – we are taking the body off. We don’t try to remove the brain from the skull as this might damage it. All the rest of my body is replaceable.”Currently there are 149 patients at Alcor’s facility, including the youngest person to ever be cryo-preserved – a  two-year-old from Thailand – and also the US baseball star Ted Williams.In 2003, former Alcor executive Larry Johnson published a damning report of the company and alleged they had mishandled Williams’ severed head – a claim the organisation denies.But Dr More argues the people held in the Alcor facility have rights and aren’t just corpses.center_img He said: “These people are potentially revivable – they are like people in a deep coma. They have rights, they can’t just be disposed of at any time.”He also described how family members sometimes visit their loved ones held in the facility.“And some people write a letter once a year to their relative…and then they can see what happened while they were cryo-preserved and catch up once they come back.”Alcor has 1,100 paying members on its books – including 29 Britons – and this number is rising all the time.The company has a watch list of members in failing health and when they are close to death, a “standby” team is sent to be nearby.“It’s not about the fear of death” Dr More says about cryopreservation. “It’s about the enjoyment of life and wanting more of it.” Dr More is the President and CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation A 14-year-old girl became the youngest British person to be cryo-preserved earlier this week Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

6 new iPhone features that would actually change your life

first_imgAPPLE ARE DUE to make a major announcement tonight, and it’s widely expected to be the newest iPhone.There have been reports the new model will include an inbuilt fingerprint scanner, among other changes. But we say: meh.Here’s how Apple could really give you a helping hand:Parental Call Blocker Source: ShutterstockFilters all calls from your parents, and blocks any where they’re about to pester you over when you’re coming home next.Instead they will simply receive a message informing them that yes you are eating well, and no you do not require advice on when to turn the heating on.Voicemail Preventer Source: spDuchampAll voicemail is replaced an automated sarcastic message telling callers: “Hi, you’ve reached Michael Freeman’s voicemail. This should be a great way to contact him in the year 2013 – that is if you’ve already tried sending a fax and PM’ing him on Myspace.”Instead of beeping, it would then endlessly repeat JUST SEND A TEXT – JUST SEND A TEXT – JUST SEND A TEXT until the caller (ie your parents) hangs up.Emergency Heli-Phone Source: DvdOudenWhen you’re lying in bed and accidentally drop your phone on your face, tiny rotors instantly extend from the back so it hovers gently in the air rather than painfully colliding with your eye socket.This would also work for those times when you get your phone out of your trouser pocket and somehow manage to fling it on the floor in the process. (Just me? Oh.)Embarrassing Selfie Alarm Source: HeavySounds an alert if you are trying to look all hot in a selfie for your new profile photo, and it’s about to be ruined by something in the background/a reflection in the mirror/your friends being ‘gas’.In future editions this could also be refined to prevent accidental Extreme Duckface.Toilet Guard Source: VimeoWorking in conjunction with the Heli-Phone feature, this locks your handset any time you approach a toilet bowl, rendering it unusable. This protects you from both (a) dropping your phone in the jacks, and also (b) having to overhear people having conversations in the next cubicle while answering the call of nature.However, once you’ve sat down safely, you WILL be able to play Angry Birds.Drunk Dial Distractor Source: elidukeWhen you try and call or text after several beverages, your new iPhone simply shuts itself down and plays a slideshow of soothing images of kittens: Source: Imgur Source: Imgur Source: ImgurNow, isn’t that better?Smartphones should be banned in these 6 places>The most misguided iPhone covers ever devised by humanity>last_img read more

Star Trek Discovery Finds Life Michael but Not as We Know It

first_img ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ S2 Finale Recap: When No One Has Gone Before’Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2, Ep 13 Recap: Tearful Preparations By now, Star Trek: Discovery has proven its Star Trek cred. It’s had some bad episodes, it’s had some great ones, but for most of the way through, it’s felt like Star Trek. Its best episodes have felt like some combination of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. Even with two episodes focusing on Harry Mudd, last night’s was the first time it really felt like the original Star Trek. It had all the ingredients: An unexplored planet, a strange new alien race and a crewmember who starts acting weird after exposure to said alien race. It even had an awkwardly placed romantic subplot. It doesn’t get more Star Trek than that.The episode starts with a pretty awesome space battle, even if it does end poorly for the Federation. We learn that Kol has been giving cloaking technology to any Klingon house that swears fealty to him. That means the Klingons can appear out of nowhere and attack a bunch of Federation vessels at once. Suddenly, the war isn’t going so well for the Federation. I get why Star Trek: Discovery chose to focus on a ship that necessarily has to be kept away from the front lines in a war. It allows the show to have its big serialized war story, and shove it into the background when it wants to have some classic Trek exploratory sci-fi fun. For the most part, it works. It allows for a grand scale with high stakes as well as the occasional standalone episode. The problem comes when we have to be told how the war is going. We can’t follow it on the show, so it just feels like the Federation is winning one week and losing the next. This week, they’re losing.Shazad Latif, Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones (Photo via CBS)To combat the Klingons’ newfound invisibility powers, the Discovery has sent Burnham, Tyler and Saru to the planet Pahvo. They want to investigate a naturally occurring crystal structure that’s broadcasting a strange signal into space. If they can harness its frequency, they can detect the cloaked Klingon ships. Right away, the importance of the mission is clear, which turns an episode of walking around and talking to trees into a genuinely fascinating hour of Star Trek. Shortly after landing on the planet, they discover that the entire thing is alive. Everything is part of a sentient collective species, which means it falls to Saru to try and build a vocabulary with the Pahvons to speak with them. It’s a tough, tiring process as Saru’s incredibly sensitive ears are constantly bombarded with noise on this planet. This is the first episode to really delve into the fact that Saru’s species is prey on his planet, and what that means when he’s put into an alien environment. Here, it means he’s never experienced a moment’s peace and it’s even worse on Pahvo.He begs the Pahvons to make it stop for just one moment. They enter his mind, learn everything about the war and his past, and he’s suddenly at peace for the first time in his life. Doug Jones plays the abrupt change very well. You know something is wrong the minute he walks into the landing party’s shelter claiming he’s contacted the Discovery. He’s unsettlingly calm. When he breaks Tyler and Burnham communicators, it’s not a surprise. We all saw that coming. It’s much more interesting to figure out why he’s suddenly behaving that way. The Pahvons aren’t evil. They are peaceful to a fault. They desperately want to meet other species, which is why they built that giant crystal transmitter in the first place. Burnham goes forward with the mission, modifying the crystal transmitter and letting the Discovery know where they are. The fight between Burnham and Saru looks… hokey. There have been better fight scenes in this series, but it thankfully doesn’t last long. Hey, it’s certainly not the worst-looking fight Star Trek’s ever had. I think that title still belongs to Kirk vs. Gorn from the original series. (Much like this one, it was a great episode, but a terrible fight.)Shazad Latif, Sonequa Martin-Green (Photo via CBS)I liked that Saru wasn’t acting under the Pahvons’ control. It would have been easy for the series to go the sinister alien route. Instead, Saru’s actions were entirely self-motivated. This is what happens when you give a moment’s peace to a person who’s never had that. He goes to extreme lengths to protect it. It’s an interesting exploration of Saru’s character, and Star Trek: Discovery pulled it off well. The Pahvon’s truly are peaceful, even to their detriment. Along with being a truly Trek-like exploration episode, it also set us up for an incredible midseason finale. The Pahvons’ dedication to peace makes them think if the Federation and Klingons could just be in the same place and talk to each other, the war will end. I think we all know that’s not going to work. After the modification, the Pahvon’s send a signal to Kol’s ship, arranging a meeting between it and the Discovery. If nothing else, it sounds like we’ll head into the show’s winter break on a seriously explosive note.Even the Klingon scenes were some of the best Star Trek: Discovery has had so far. That’s not saying much, but it’s an accomplishment. Yes, they still talk unbearably slow, but the show has figured out not to have entire scenes of monologues from them. That’s what really killed the momentum of those early episodes. The Klingon scenes are all fairly snappy by this show’s standards. It certainly helps that some dramatic and interesting things happen in them. L’Rell arrives on Kol’s ship, asking to be allowed to join him. She heard he’d captured Admiral Cornwell and wants to be the one to interrogate her. Kol allows it, and L’Rell soon finds herself alone with Cornwell. It’s not clear at this point exactly what her plans are. She hates Kol and wants revenge for how he led the mutiny against Voq. She offers to defect to the Federation, but we know that’s not her real plan.Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp (Photo via CBS)Not that it matters much anyway. She and Cornwell try to escape, but Kol sees them. To save face, L’Rell apparently kills Cornwell. It’s an odd and sudden death for a character who seemed so important. This show doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to making big deaths land, but this feels especially out of nowhere. I still think we’ll see Cornwell wake up in the Klingon corpse room at some point during next week’s midseason finale. Whatever L’Rell’s plan is, it fails anyway. Kol sees through her lies of fealty and has her taken prisoner. I’m sure this will all be important when Kol and Lorca meet in next week’s battle, but it’s unclear how at this point. It doesn’t make for a super satisfying collection of scenes this episode, but it sure sets up some explosive possibilities for the next one. I also hope they address what’s going on with Stamets more. He and Tilly only got one short scene together, and I really wanted more. For now, it appears Stamets is guiding the ship is bringing him out of step with time. Thanks to that, we got a nice little bit of foreshadowing when he calls Tilly “Captain.” That’s exciting. For an episode that felt a lot like a throwback to the original Star Trek, this one certainly set up a lot of cool stuff for the future. Now I just hope they can capitalize on it.

Facing threat from BCL, Maidul was forced to leave campus and he gave a letter to proctor seeking his security. Later, a former leader of BCL filed a case against Maidul with Hathazari police station under Section-57 of ICT Act.” The statement also said that Maidul was granted anticipatory bail for eight weeks from court on 6 August.After expiry of his bail term, he surrendered before the court on Monday and the court sent him to jail denying his bail petition.The teachers in the statement demanded Maidul’s release from jail with honour as soon as possible.They also demanded to identify the persons threatened him and bring them under trial and punishment.Professor Anu Mohammad of Economics Department in Jahangirnagar University, professor Giti Ara Nasreen and professor Robaet Ferdous of Mass Communication and Journalism Department of Dhaka University, Samina Lutfa, an associate professor of Sociology Department in Dhaka University are among the signatories of the statement.Chittagong University (CU) authorities on Tuesday temporarily suspended Maidul Islam.On 24 July, a former leader of Bangladesh Chhatra League and CU student Md Iftekhar Uddin Ayaz filed the case with Hathazari police station under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.On 15 July, the Sociology teacher had to leave the campus along with his family following continuous threat reportedly from BCL activists over his Facebook post in support of the quota reform movement and alleged demeaning of the prime minister.last_img read more

China gets a League of Legendsthemed restaurant

first_imgIf Wheaties is the Breakfast of Champions, then what is dinner at the League of Legends restaurant? It’s a meal fit for kings at an establishment that begs the phrase “only in China” — not only because Chinese culture is rife with video game fandom, but also because it’s infamous for copyright infringement. It’s a pretty safe bet that the owners of this eatery don’t have any kind of licensing deal with Riot Games or its subsidiaries.That definitely isn’t stopping the fans from pouring in for a hearty slab of meat or a round of drinks to celebrate their never-ending adventuring, though. The restaurant is filled with League of Legends paraphernalia, with the waitstaff dressed up as characters from the game.There is also, of course, a computer set up in the middle of the establishment to let customers get their League of Legends fix. According to MMOCulture.com, patrons can win discounts on their food if they accomplish various feats within the game.Aside from that, it is pretty much the standard restaurant fare — you know, deep-fried scorpions, braised snake meat, the usual. Actually, these dishes are not so out of the ordinary in China, and fit in with the lore of the fantasy RPG quite well.Prices appear to be fairly reasonable. A serving of the signature cocktail will run you just 35 Chinese Yuan, or around $5.60. The more expensive entrees cost around $20.It was reported that the owners spent roughly $160,000 to get the restaurant up and running. Or, as die-hard League of Legends fans might call it, money well spent.last_img read more

The result may indicate that businesses are optimistic about future sales.Sales in May were up 0.4 percent following gains in March and April. Before March, sales had posted seven straight monthly declines.

However, a separate report Tuesday showed that retail sales in June fell 0.3 percent as consumers cut back their spending at stores and restaurants.Despite the disappointing retail sales result, which followed a robust 1 percent gain in May, analysts said they are still hopeful that consumers will ramp up their spending in coming months based on rising incomes from strong job gains over the past year.The economy went into reverse in the first quarter, shrinking at an annual rate of 0.2 percent. That decline in the gross domestic product was the result of an unusually harsh winter that kept consumers away from shopping malls and disrupted other economic activity as well.Analysts are forecasting a bounce back in the April-June period to 2.5 percent growth.The increase in stockpiles in May left inventories at a seasonally adjusted $1.8 trillion, an increase of 2.4 percent from May 2014.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Which College Graduation Class Holds the Most Housing Weight

first_imgWhich College Graduation Class Holds the Most Housing Weight? The class of 2008 is the most likely to buy and mortgage a higher-priced home, according to recent data from LendEDU, a student loan debt consolidation company based in New Jersey. With the highest median credit score in the last 10 years, this group of young adults also boasts the highest median home loan debt, at $395,038.According to the data, 2008 graduates outpace other classes in home loan debt by more than $115,000. The classes with the next-highest home loan debts are: 2013, with $279,300; 2016, with $274,384; 2009, with $260,008; and 2014, with $249,100.Classes with the lowest home loan debt were 2010, 2011, and 2015—all of which saw a median debt of $200,000 or below. These results were unexpected, according to LendEDU.“While we expected to see graduates of earlier class years borrowing more home loans,” the report stated, “we instead see a trend indicative of the housing market over time—a peak in 2008 followed by a large recession and tentative recovery starting in 2012.”The report also breaks down home loan debts by college degree and, according to the data, graduates with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) have the highest median home loan debt at $445,900. This is followed by Doctor of Pharmacy ($387,625), Juris Doctor ($323,000), Doctor of Philosophy ($262,200), Masters ($260,008), Bachelors ($200,111), and Associates ($164,225). LendEDU’s data shows all groups but Associate-degree graduates have at least a good or very good credit score. Something that could indicate the true value of a higher degree.The report explained, “After the recession hit and a college degree no longer guaranteed a job, many began to wonder: what’s the real value of a college education? With some patience, perhaps a good credit score.”Ultimately, it seems higher education, over time, leads to higher credit scores and therefore larger mortgage loans and higher debts. This means that while this year’s class is currently on track for the poorest credit scores in recent memory, that doesn’t indicate they’ll be unable to secure a home in the not-too-distant future.“In general, higher degrees do equate with higher credit scores and bigger home and auto loans,” LendEDU stated. “Students who graduated longer ago have better credit scores and bigger loans than current students. The class of 2017 has the poorest scores, but if the trend holds, they’ll be back up into the ‘good’ zone soon enough.” February 3, 2017 600 Views Data LendEDU Median Home Loan Debt 2017-02-03 Staff Writercenter_img in Data, Headlines, News Sharelast_img read more

AZCardinals resign Scooby Wright to the practice

first_img#AZCardinals re-sign Scooby Wright to the practice squad.— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) September 13, 2017Wright, The 2016 seventh-round pick by the Cleveland Browns signed with the Cardinals in December of 2016, but was cut to make way for the 53-man roster and signed to the team’s practice squad this year. The Arizona Cardinals re-signed former University of Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright to the practice squad Wednesday. Linebacker Philip Wheeler was originally on the 53-man roster, but due to his contract situation, he was released by the team. If Wheeler would have suited up, his $695,000 contract would have been guaranteed. Wright was signed to take his place on the active roster on Sept. 8 prior to week one’s showdown against the Detroit Lions, but was inactive for the game.The Cardinals flip-flopped that move on Monday by re-signing Wheeler and releasing Wright.In five preseason games with Arizona, Wright totaled 18 tackles and forced a fumble.
