Security is looking as though it will be particularly high on the agenda for the iPhone 8 and beyond. Apple pundits and rumor spinners are already putting a facial recognition scanner top of the feature list, and now it looks like big changes are coming to the fingerprint scanning tech, too. That's according to a patent filing that describes where Apple expects security technology to go next. It details 'acoustic imaging system architecture', which could replace the existing Touch ID fingerprint scanner. It'd do this by building a series of layers, sensitive to different conditions, into the screen. One would generate acoustic waves, while another would monitor reflections or obstructions to the waves (e.g. your finger positioned on the screen), which would send the data back to an image analysis system that could identify a 2D map of the screen surface.

More broadly, the government's priority is to persuade people from travelling to areas of conflict in the first place and our strategy works to identify and support individuals at risk of radicalisation. In 2015 over 150 attempted detainees were disrupted. The government's process to identify and provide support to individuals at risk of being drawn into terrorism is rolled out in 2012.

Suggestions that there would be no replacement for the current Focus RS appear wide of the mark: Ford sources suggest there may be “at least one more” version of the highly rated 165mph sports hatch in the company’s armoury. Ford chief Farley is known to be keen on such models, which he says do much to boost the image and desirability of the whole Ford range. Inside, the new Focus will be more carefully packaged than ever, to offer enhanced passenger space in key areas even though it is no bigger externally. The décor will be simpler and more stylish: the company’s designers privately admit they “overdelivered” on dashboard complexity in recent Fiesta and Focus cabins. The fascia, in particular, will be simpler and less claustrophobic, with more functions activated via a prominent central touch-screen. Ford is still deciding launch details for its fourth-generation Focus.

It is signedSergii” — an alternative transliteration of Leshchenko’s given name — and it urges Manafort to respond to an email address that reporters have used to reach Leshchenko. In the text to Manafort’s daughter to which the note was attached, the sender writes from a different address, “I need to get in touch with Paul i need to share some important information with him regarding ukraine investigation.” The sender adds “as soon as he comes back to me i will pass you documents,” but also warns: “if I dont get any reply from you iam gonaa pass it on to the fbi and ukrainian authorities inducing media.” Leshchenko disavowed the texts in question, telling POLITICO on Tuesday “I've never written any emails or messages to … Manafort or his family. I don't know their contact details.” He added he said “I have nothing to do with” the email address from which the texts were sent.

“That’s just not the president,” said one of the White House officials. “He’s not a details guy.” Rick Santorum, a former senator and presidential candidate, said the speech represents “a chance for him to really create an inflection point” as “the first time that he really engages the Congress because he certainly hasnt done so far.” “This is an address to Congress. This is not an inaugural. You have to go out there and lay out your plans. I’d be very disappointed if this wasnt more of a laundry list speech, really putting some meat on the bones as for what he’s going to do,” Santorum said, who suggested Trump should “start out with something everybody likes” — such as infrastructure —“then you can go off into things that are obviously a little more controversial,” including repealing the health care law or the travel ban. Michael Steel, who served as press secretary for former Speaker John Boehner, said presidential addresses to Congress are a tough balancing act.

We have agreed to hold a workshop early next calendar year (mid-2017) to elaborate more on details of the new Iran petroleum contracts where interested Russian companies will attend, he added. Zangeneh also commented on US President Donald Trump taking office, saying his policies would benefit American oil companies more than others. The official thanked Russia cooperating with the OPEC for the first time in history by curbing its output parallel with the organization in a bid to tackle the downward oil price in the market. Russia has announced it will stay committed to its promise to reduce its output so long as market stability is ascertained. He further said the prices of over $55b or $60b would not benefit OPEC members, saying this would bring back American suppliers to the market and increase the country's output, hence pushing the prices down again.

The Panasonic LX15’s 4K footage is superb, although it isn't quite up to the Sony RX100 V’s standards. Details look a little over-sharpened and this accentuates noise. However, this slight disadvantage is overshadowed by the ability to move the autofocus point using the LX15’s touchscreen, a crucially important feature for video, that’s notably absent from the Sony RX100 V. Video of Panasonic LX15 4K video sample ^ The touchscreen-controlled autofocus makes it easy to pick a part of the frame to focus on, and the 4K footage is top notch For capturing 4K video, the LX15 uses an 8-megapixel crop of the 20-megapixel sensor, which saves the camera having to resize every frame. That means the 24-72mm effective focal length for photos translates to 36-108mm for 4K videos. Wide-angle’s loss is telephoto’s gain, however, and on balance I’d say this trade-off is welcome.

ISLAMABAD A powerful explosion hit near a second upscale market in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore on Thursday, a government official said, the latest in a new surge of violence across the country. There were no immediate reports of casualties. An second explosion in Lahore's Gulberg area came hours after a blast at another upscale market killed at least five people and wounded 21. Initial reports are of an explosion in the Gulberg area, a Punjab government official told Reuters, requesting anonymity until authorities had more details. He said the explosion occurred on a main boulevard lined with shopping plazas and restaurants. Pakistan has been struck by a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks, killing at least 130 people across the country and leaving hundreds wounded. The worst of the attacks was at a Sufi shrine in southern Sindh province that killed 90 people this month.

The refusal to offer anything beyond the most vague details possible may suggest that in addition to loosening the restrictions on combat in Iraq, the Trump Administration is reducing transparency on US military operations abroad. Though the US is often lax in reporting on civilian casualties in their assorted wars, up until now they've been pretty forward with offering figures on US military casualties. The lack of timely and precise updates on military casualties may be an effort to further limit public opposition to the conflicts by denying the public a clear picture of what is happening abroad.

Developer Yao Shuen-ting said his team tried to capture the pervasive fear of a time when family members and colleagues were going missing. "We want to let players experience the atmosphere through the characters' perspective ... to come to the conclusion themselves that this was a time when you could die from reading a book," said Yao. Next Tuesday is the 70th anniversary of the start of a brutal massacre of anti-government protesters by KMT troops on Feb 28, 1947, under nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek. It was a precursor to decades of purges under Chiang and his son between 1949 and 1987, when martial law was finally lifted. Victims were often teachers and doctors who were angry with government corruption and turned to underground organisations that created and distributed reading materials seen as subversive. "Detention" developers say they spoke with their own elderly relatives to help recreate the era, finding out finer details such as the kinds of outfits school officials would have worn.
