Intel AMD announced its new high-end desktop (HEDT) platform, the 16-core 32-thread Threadripper a couple of weeks ago. At Computex in Taipei, it's Intel's turn to update its HEDT platform, and it's one-upping AMD in the process. The Intel platform, consisting of the new X299 chipset and new X-series processors, will go all the way up to 18 cores and 36 threads. The HEDT segment is aimed at gamers, video streamers, and content creators with deep pockets or an insatiable desire for more concurrent threads than the mainstream processor segment has to offer. The value proposition for this segment is always a little skewed, with the chips being as much prestige parts as anything else. Straightforward gaming workloads may struggle to make full use of the chips' resources, but serious Twitch streamers, for example, can make good use of the extra cores. Software developers are another group that can make good use of all those cores. Read 14 remaining paragraphs | Comments

And because these cultures pass down beliefs and teachings orally, a lot of wisdom held by the elders was lost. Fortunately, some remain to preserve it. The world has changed a lot, but much of their teachings, meant to serve as a guidebook for a way of life that respects and honours all beings, still applies today. One great example would by the modern day food industry. Several different cultures within the first nations of America preach deep respect for all life and the animal kingdom, and a recognition that all life is connected. Imagine travelling back in time and showing footage of modern day factory farmsanimals being raised and tortured en mass, in the billions, solely to be killed for our increasing greed. I would be surprised if you could find one elder today who wasn't appalled and heartbroken, or an elder in ancient times who would allow their people to participate in such barbaric acts.

He said Malaysia today stood out in the world as an example of how different ethnic communities could live in peace and harmony and worked together for the progress and well-being of the nation. Lee also stressed that the time had come for all Malaysians to identify more ethnic bridge-builders and to emphasise on their crucial role and at that juncture, Malaysians must tear down any serious racial divide in the larger interest of improving ethnic relations in the country. "It is the responsibility of all Malaysians to take a firm stand against divisive forces since national unity is of utmost importance in achieving peace, stability and wellbeing of the nation and in the creation of Bangsa Malaysia. Let's celebrate our unity in diversity and strengthen it for our future generations," he said. – Bernama

Curtis Moldrich 1 min 51 sec ago Cars Just under a year ago, Rolls-Royce unveiled the VISION Next 100, a driverless concept designed to take one of the most famous car makers in the world into the 21st century. Rolls Royce said it was an example of how it was going to combine new technology such as 3D printing alongside hand-built techniques to create one-off cars for customers – and now it’s unveiled one of the examples of that practise.

The Education Trust runs a website that compares schools with similar profiles and has found that some are better at graduating students of color and low-income students. A recent Education Trust study analyzed graduation rates of black students at 676 schools, identifying those that performed well, and those that did not, at closing the achievement gap. Some institutions need to be less concerned about students being college ready and they need to be more concerned about being student ready, Nichols says. When they're student ready, they're able to really put forward a suite of interventions that can make it easier for students to navigate the system and get out of there with an degree in a timely fashion. Yvonne Romero Da Silva, director of admissions at the University of Pennsylvania, agrees. She points to the GI Bill after World War II as an example of how higher education institutions can support students with academic gaps.

Telhan is an associate professor of fine arts and emerging design practices and he worked with a biologist and an engineer on a desktop machine that allows anyone to do genetic engineering experiments, without needing a background in biology. Biology is the newest technology that people need to learn, Telhan says. It's a new skill set everyone should learn because it changes the way you manufacture things, it changes the way we learn, store information, think about the world. As an example of a recent application, Telhan points to an Adidas shoe made from bioengineered fiber , inspired by spider silk. The comparison between genetic engineering and computing is not new. Two years ago at a conference, MIT Media Lab Director Joi Ito gave a talk called Why bio is the new digital: You can now take all of the gene bricks, these little parts of genetic code, categorize them as if they were pieces of code, write software using a computer, stick them in a bacteria, reboot the bacteria and the bacteria just as with computers, usually does what you think it does.

For most of the 1990s and 2000s, investment in housing as a share of the GDP oscillated around 5% . As oil prices began to rise in the early 2000s, the housing sector significantly expanded . Boosted by oil revenue, housing construction intensifiedparticularly in Tehran . Few believed that the sector's growth would slow, as it appeared that demand would never be satisfied. The ensuing economic crisiscaused by declining oil prices and international sanctions over the country’s nuclear programchanged that. Things took a turn for the worse as rising inflation swallowed purchasing power. The housing sector is a classic example of overinvestment in construction. Soon, supply had overtaken demand, with the latter particularly weakened by increasing inflation. In 2011, the number of construction permits issued began to drop . The fall was modest in the beginning, with a 2.

Macron went on to describe RT and Sputnik as “organs of influence and propaganda,” adding that both “produced infamous counter-truths about him.” After the presser, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia “does not agree” with Macron’s claims about the two news organizations. Russian President Vladimir Putin lights a candle as he visits a Russian spiritual and cultural center in Paris, France, May 29, 2017. RT’s Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan responded to Macron’s claims on the news outlets, saying they were in fact attacks on freedom of speech. “Despite the numerous accusations made throughout the duration of the French presidential campaign, to this day not a single example, not a single piece of evidence, has been presented to support the claims that RT spread any slander or ‘fake news' about Mr.

TDS is an abbreviation for 'Tax Deducted at Source'. TDS has been introduced to collect tax from the source from where an Individual's income is generated. The government uses TDS as a tool to collect tax so as to minimize the tax evasion by taxing the income (partially or wholly) at the time it is generated rather than at a later date. TDS is applicable on the various incomes received such as salaries, interest received, commission received etc. TDS is not applicable to all incomes and all persons for all transactions. Different rates of TDS have been prescribed by the Income Tax Act for different payments and different categories of recipients. For example, payment of redemption proceeds by a debt mutual fund to a resident individual is not subject to TDS but for a Non-resident Indian is subject to TDS. TDS works on the concept that every person making specified type of payments to any person shall deduct tax at the rates prescribed in the Income Tax Act at source and deposit the same into the government's account.

Some moderators, like Sharanya, find it difficult to cope. Debarati Halder, honorary MD of Tirunelveli-based Centre for Cyber Victim Counselling, cites the example of two college students, both in their late teens, who had taken up content moderation jobs. "In the first few months, they saw more than 1 lakh videos of graphic content including rape and molestation," says Halder. "The boys became averse to sexual relationships," she adds. "Even though many moderators might enjoy their work, it's bound to take a toll on their mental health," says Dr Shyam Bhat, psychiatrist and founder of Seraniti, a Bengaluru-based mental health service provider. Rao says his firm Infoesearch regularly conducts sessions about the nature of the work. "We do not allow women who recently joined to moderate extreme violent content. We sensitise our employees slowly," says Rao.

“But it does establish an enduring framework that enables countries to ratchet down their carbon emissions over time, and to set more ambitious targets as technology advances.” The Obama Regression The few encouraging steps aside, the Obama administration still left office having only adopted the most modest of measures to confront the climate crisis. The enduring framework of the Paris Agreement, for example, was no guarantee that the worst polluters in the world, including the United States, would take the necessary action to reverse trends that Obama himself had described as “ terrifying .” In fact, in other ways the Obama administration arguably made the situation much worse. By overseeing a major increase in energy production in the United States, one in which the United States began producing far more oil and gas for use and export, the Obama administration actually contributed to the terrifying trends that are destroying the planet.
