Dr. Peng provides communications services in China. Partners listed on its website include Huawei Technologies Co., a telecommunications gear maker accused by U.S. authorities of being a potential security risk. Huawei has denied such allegations...
To treat the woman, Nishida says his team created sheets of corneal cells from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. These are made by reprogramming adult skin cells from a donor into an embryonic-like state from which they can transform into other cell types, such as corneal cells.
Nishida said that the woman’s cornea remained clear and her vision had improved since the transplant a month ago...

JEFFREY Epstein’s “fixer” pal who allegedly had key info on the US sex fiend has disappeared “like a ghost”, according to reports. French prosecutors last month launched a probe into claims Epstein attacked underage girls in Paris, and reportedly wanted to quiz Brunel. The Frenchman was suspected of having important knowledge of the Epstein scandal. But the millionaire model agency boss – who is said to have been on a talent scouting trip to Brazil – has apparently vanished...
Tech investor John Borthwick doesn’t mince words when it comes to how he perceives smart speakers from the likes of Google and Amazon. The founder of venture capital firm Betaworks and former Time Warner and AOL executive believes the information-gathering performed by such devices is tantamount to surveillance. “I would say that there's two or three layers sort of problematic layers with these new smart speakers, smart earphones that are in market now,” Borthwick told Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer during an interview for his series “Influencers.” “And so the first is, from a consumer standpoint, user standpoint, is that these, these devices are being used for what's — it's hard to call it anything but surveillance,” Borthwick said.
The United States and 10 Southeast Asian nations were set to kick off joint maritime naval exercises Monday, including drills in the disputed South China Sea, as Washington ramped up its moves against alleged “bullying” in the disputed waterway by Beijing. Eight warships, four aircraft and more than a thousand personnel from the U.S. and all 10 countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations were taking part in the first ASEAN-U.S. Maritime Exercise (AUMX). Lasting five days and starting at the Sattahip Naval Base in Thailand and ending in Singapore, the drills come amid soaring tensions between Washington and Beijing, especially over the South China Sea.
the owners of the bucolic rural tourist attraction and Instagrammer magnet announced that it would close indefinitely. In a Facebook post, the Ryan family lamented the insufficient infrastructure to handle this year’s hordes of visitors, which led to liability and safety concerns.. This is not the only time this year that pretty flowers could be blamed for gridlock — and the compulsion to take photos for social media is partly to blame. In March, authorities temporarily closed access to Walker Canyon, whose blooming orange poppies were such a lure for shutterbugs — at least 50,000 of them — that it resulted in traffic jams and overflowing toilets, not to mention trampled flowers. Social media posts called it the “poppy nightmare.”
Compare the two screenshots below, one from each video. It seems it's the same person - just the old maintenance guy.
Note: the guy has a distinctive dark spot on his grey head. Additionally he has what is called forward head posture where the shoulders slope forward.
Also, they would know the guy is droning. It wouldn't make much sense to go back to the island and just hang out nonchalantly.
Matthew Kroll of the US Coast Guard said five crew members sleeping on the 75-foot (23-metre) boat's top deck were rescued early morning near Santa Cruz Island. The island is about 90 miles (145km) from Los Angeles. One of the crew suffered minor injuries.
Kroll said 34 passengers who were sleeping below deck have not been accounted for...
During ABC’s coverage of the shooting, correspondent Rachel Scott gave the topic of gun control positive spin by dubbing it “gun reform”. And complained about President Trump’s “mixed signals” and conversations with the NRA
The same state where that shooting was held, that make it easier to carry firearms in public places like schools and churches,” she bemoaned.
This is an outright lie. The new laws do not open any areas to CC that were previously prohibited. Instead, they clarify existing laws that have long permitted CC on school grounds and in churches.
Launched recently, Zao is currently topping the free download chart on China’s iOS store... Users of the app upload a photo of themselves to drop their likeness into popular scenes from hundreds of movies or TV shows... A user can provide an existing photo or, following on-screen prompts, create a series of photos where they blink their eyes and open their mouth to help create a more realistic deepfake.
Many users complained about the privacy issue. “We understand the concern about privacy. We’ve received the feedback, and will fix the issues that we didn’t take into consideration, which will need a bit of time,” a statement posted to Zao’s account on social-media platform Weibo said...
The tool, reported recently in the journal PLOS Biology, will help investigate how memory works at the molecular level. Insights gained from the simpler fruit fly brain can later guide studies of human memory.
"For the first time, we can specifically control the neurons forming long-term memories in Drosophila," Pielage said...
Thomas Kaiser, 55, was arrested in connection with “destructive devices” found at his South Plainfield property, close to the start of the 62nd Annual Labor Day Parade, which was canceled as a result, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement... Officials began an investigation after a “suspicious package” had been left behind at Donovan’s Reef in Sea Bright following a concert on Sunday, according to prosecutors. One report identified the package as a cooler of fireworks, which a man was hoping to set off at the end of the concert. When he wasn’t allowed the cooler was left behind, according to an NBC report. Inside the package was what appeared to be crude fireworks, a police source said.
The government’s Council for Foreign Affairs and Defence convened on Saturday for an emergency session after the arrival on Thursday of more than a dozen migrant boats carrying around 600 people, the first simultaneous arrival of its kind in three years. The increase in arrivals has piled additional pressure on Greece’s overcrowded island camps, all of which are operating at least twice their capacity... On Saturday, the government said it would move asylum-seekers to mainland facilities, increase border surveillance together with the European Union’s border patrol agency Frontex and NATO, and boost police patrols across Greece to identify rejected asylum seekers who have remained in the country. It also plans to cut back a lengthy asylum process, which can take several months to conclude, by abolishing the second stage of appeals when an application is rejected, and deporting the applicant either to Turkey or to their country of origin.
Dioxins, a group of chemical compounds, are environmental pollutants of the highest order–they’re present in industrial waste, accumulate in animal fatty tissue throughout the food chain, and can cause prostate cancer, respiratory cancers, type II diabetes, Hodgkin’s disease, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, and more. And as one recent study has shown, their insidious effects can possibly be passed on through the generations to the great-grandchildren of people who have been exposed...
The map of the so-called “Blue Homeland” shows Turkey‘s maritime borders stretching across the Greek islands of the eastern and southeastern Aegean and even into the Cyclades, indicating a 462,000 square kilometer (290,000 sq.m.) area that Ankara claims as its own.
The picture of Erdogan, taken during an event at the National Defense University in Istanbul over the weekend, prompted Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias to respond.
“The borders of states are not defined by any map one likes to draw but on the basis of international law,” Dendias said on Monday during a television interview...
The gunman, identified by police as Seth Aaron Ator, 36, of Odessa, had been fired from his truck-driving job in Odessa on Saturday morning, the New York Times and other media reported. Hours later, Ator was pulled over in Midland by Texas state troopers on Interstate 20 for failing to use a turn signal, police said. Armed with an AR-type rifle, Ator fired out the back window of his vehicle, injuring one trooper. Then he drove away spraying gunfire indiscriminately, the Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement.
This year's second most powerful geomagnetic storm was recorded through Sunday and Monday, scientists at the Solar X-ray Astronomy Laboratory at the Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) of the Russian Academy of Science said on their website...
After just one day in near-zero gravity conditions, more than 80% of cancer cells died in a trial at the University of Technology Sydney. The initial results confirm earlier findings from German researchers that did similar tests with different cancer cells.
"A lot of people around me started getting cancer, and that really motivated me to investigate cancer cells," Joshua Chou, biomedical engineering researcher at UTS, told DW, saying he was prompted to test how cancer cells behave at zero-gravity following his previous research on how to prevent bone loss in space.
"There’s no way we can develop a silver bullet cure for cancer because everyone’s cancer is different and people react differently,” he said. "But what I really wanted to know was: is there something these cancers have in common? That's why I put them in the microgravity device."...
Takis, who has died aged 93, was enjoying a recent burst of attention and is the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Tate Modern in London which runs until the end of October... He worked primarily in plaster and wrought iron before becoming fascinated by magnetism, electricity and sound, and how those unseen forces animate the physical world and how they might also breathe life into his artistic creations... Magnets and magnetism would becoming defining elements of his work for decades...
