William Chyr's game looks like a lithograph, its architectural drawing and brutalist utopia rolled into one. All Fallout games start with the same concept: mankind is almost completely destroyed by its own nuclear paranoia which leads to the horrific consequence of mutually assured destruction. Unlike the other games in the series, Fallout 4 begins when the bombs fall. Stephan Matiniere's chilling artwork captured just that moment. There are people desperately packing their belongings into cars, and a boy has just emerged from his home to see what's going on. Among the debris and panic there's a couple who are hugging each other, watching the show calmly resigned to their fate. Breathtakingly, it explains the first few minutes of Fallout 4 gameplay in one single image. The understated palette of this image, crisp lines and stark landscape echo 1970s sci-fi movies such as The Black Hole or Silent Running.

According to research firm Gartner, the company ranks fourth - far behind Salesforce.com and other rivals Oracle Corp and SAP - with just 4.3% of the market in 2015, the most recent year for which figures are available. Nadella, long known as a champion for the democratization of artificial intelligence (AI), said it would be a key component to Dynamics: "I want to be able to democratize AI so that any customer using these products is able to, in fact, take their own data and load it into AI for themselves." Microsoft's "third cloud" is Nadella's term for Dynamics which caters to the fields such as sales and finance. With Office 365 (work productivity and flow, email, etc.) and Azure (computing and databases) as the first two clouds, Nadella all Microsoft products utilizing a common set of business data that can be mined for new insights with artificial intelligence "I think that's the only way to long-term change this game, because if all we did was replace somebody else's (sales), or (finance) application, that's of no value, quite frankly," he told Reuters.

Ontario’s premier, Kathleen Wynne, announced on Monday details of her basic income pilot program, the first in North America in decades. The province of Ontario will start its pilot project testing universal basic income in three Canadian cities this summer, premier Kathleen Wynne announced on Monday. About 4,000 residents of Hamilton, Thunder Bay, and Lindsay will be randomly selected to take part in the three-year program. One group will start receiving funds this summer—as much as $12,570 annually for individuals—while the other will be part of the control group, and not receive any money. Researchers will track the program's impact on the economy, public health, education, and housing. It's not an extravagant sum by any means, Wynne said. But our goal is clear. We want to find out whether a basic income makes a positive difference in people's lives.

S. government if Congress doesn't accede to Trump's demands to fund the construction of the 1,250-mile wall. The Trump administration has been desperate to score a big win during its first 100 days in office , a period characterized by multiple broken campaign promises, abrupt reversals and failed policy moves. I know there's US$4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury's own inspector general several years ago, that are going to payments to peopletax credits that they shouldn't get,” Sessions said. Now, these are mostly Mexicans, and those kinds of things add up, he asserted. US$4 billion a year for 10 years is US$40 billion. There are a lot of ways we can find money to help pay for this. Sessions appeared to be citing a July 2011 report by the U.S. Treasury Department that detailed how workers lacking social security numbers received US$4.

Enlarge / AMD's new Radeon Pro Duo GPU. (credit: AMD) A little over a year after launching the last Radeon Pro Duo graphics card, AMD is back with an all-new version that has the same name but makes a whole bunch of changes. The new Radeon Pro Duo mashes two separate 14nm Polaris GPUs with 2,304 stream processors, 128 texture units, 32 ROPs, and 16GB of graphics RAM apiece (for a total of 32GB) into a single card. As the name implies, the card is being aimed primarily at professional users rather than gamers. It's based on the Radeon Pro WX 7100 workstation GPU , which uses one GPU with most of the same specs as the Radeon Pro Duo but with 8GB of RAM instead of 16GB. You can find the full spec list for the card here, which will launch at "the end of May" for $999. The card is quite different from last year's Radeon Pro Duo —that card launched at $1,499 and featured a pair of 28nm Fiji GPUs with 4,096 stream processors and 4GB of RAM each; it was also a power-hungry monster, requiring its own closed-loop liquid cooler, three external PCIe power plugs, and as much as 350W of power.

(AP/Evan Vucci) US President Trump’s latest, and perhaps greatest pivot comes at the expense of press freedom, and Julian Assange’s freedom. From “l love Wikileaks” as a US presidential candidate, to “I hate Wikileaks” as PresidentTrump is in danger of alienating more of his hardcore base, already disillusioned with the POTUSmyriad of campaign promises turned presidential lies. Ron Paul is not giving President Trump a pass on the Wikileaks witch-hunt. In a post entitled, ” Candidate Trump: ‘I Love Wikileaks.’ President Trump: ‘Arrest Assange!’ “, Paul blasts Trump’s “hypocrisy”, noting that “if we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.
