certainly in Coldingham A. Firstly each and every prison at their works. We had an opportunity to see around the vast factories that were there, they had printing presses and the like all setup. As a result of the flexibility given to the governor, the governor was able to increase the food.

But most will just find it useful to be able to highlight and color the W, A, S, D and other game-specific keys for low-light gaming situations. A braided cable ensures that the BlackWidow Chroma V2 wont get too tangled with other wires around the back of your gaming rig, though it was disappointing to find only one USB passthrough port where some rivals offer two. Still, the accompanying 3.5 mm audio pass through jack was appreciated. Performance Razer now makes three mechanical switch types of its own to rival the likes of Cherry MX. The color coded Green, Orange and Yellow switches each have their benefits. Essentially, the Greens, which require very definite key presses, are great for the accuracy gamers crave, while the Yellows are quieter and better suited to low-travel speedy typing and FPS style games where the same key is pressed repeatedly.

Or, to put the matter more exactly: The Norse gods of the Vikings press on one side of the play, while the Christian Trinity presses on the other. And the line between them doesnt just run through the middle of Scotland. It runs through the middle of Macbeth himself, a half-gospel’d pagan, and his wife. The line between the blood-red dreamscape of the Norseman and the gospel runs through the play. This is not the only way to interpret Macbeth , of course, but Cantor’s thesis proves fruitful. If nothing else, it reminds us that the 16th-century Shakespeare lived at a time when the eighth- to 10th-century sea-wolves, and the Christianizing of the Northern Europeans, were still living history. These days, we tend to forget what Shakespeare's audiences could remember—that, right or wrong as a matter of cosmic truth, Christianity was the historical solution to something brutal, violent, and murderous in the winter souls of the pagan invaders, from the Germanic tribes to the Rus.

That's it. There's no clunky touchscreen or irritating one-button operation. In fact, it's as simple as scrolling through the menus via the arrows on the side, and confirming with the shutter button or cancelling with the power switch. Admittedly, it does take two presses of the power button to access the main menu screen (one press flicks it from shooting video to stills, the second brings up the menu), but it's not a big price to pay for simplicity. The LCD screen at the rear is bright and easy to see, even in direct sunlight, while the spongy rubber casing gives it a neat, carbon fiber-style finish. It looks ace. A microSD card slot, microUSB input and HDMI output are located on the right-hand flank as you look at the front of camera, while a 900mAh battery pack lurks safely behind a door on the underside of the unit. This new battery pack is down on power compared to its predecessor, but Olfi claims the one.

Vinyl sales have been growing yearly for the past few years with people buying re-releases and collecting original presses. But if you were a proud owner of a turntable back in the sixties, there's a chance you may have some vinyl collecting dust in storage - but it could be time to dig them out and put them on eBay. One of the most expensive LPs ever to sell according to new research is the Sex Pistols' God Save the Queen worth an astonishing £8,600, in original mint condition. If...

He will look after his patient, control access to her room and consider what information should be made public. The bond between sovereign and subjects is a strange and mostly unknowable thing. A nation’s life becomes a person’s, and then the string must break. There will be bulletins from the palace – not many, but enough. “The Queen is suffering from great physical prostration, accompanied by symptoms which cause much anxiety,” announced Sir James Reid, Queen Victoria’s physician, two days before her death in 1901. “The King’s life is moving peacefully towards its close,” was the final notice issued by George V’s doctor, Lord Dawson, at 9.30pm on the night of 20 January 1936. Not long afterwards, Dawson injected the king with 750mg of morphine and a gram of cocaine – enough to kill him twice over – in order to ease the monarch’s suffering, and to have him expire in time for the printing presses of the Times, which rolled at midnight.

This has been out for a while, but my IFTF colleague Brad just told me about it last week. It's the $400 Juicero juicing machine. To make juice with it, you must subscribe to receive pre-masticated produce that comes in packs (priced between $7 and $10 per pack, $35 to $50 per week). The packs are marked with a QR code that the Juicero scans to make sure it is "fresh." If the pack gets "out of code" (i.e., it's produce you grew, traded, or brought elsewhere) the Juicero will reject it. It's got a built-in Wi-Fi radio, which checks the date (and monitors your use of the juicer). The machine itself seems pretty neat - it presses the juice by squeezing the fruit, but they really need to let you use your own produce. If this appeals to you, here's a smart floss dispenser you'll probably like.

A 4 mm diameter piece of Nichrome (Ni-Cr) wire is electrically heated via a low voltage transformer, capable of providing up to 200 Amps. The temperature of the Ni-Crglow wireelement is measured using a type ‘k’ thermocouple which is embedded inside a blind hole drilled in the tip of the glow wire element. Earlier versions of the standard specified a 0.5 mm diameter thermocouple. The present version requires a 1 mm diameter, with a fall back to 0.5 mm in case of doubts regarding the test measurements. The glow wire temperature is manually set by adjusting the primary voltage of the transformer. No feedback control or re-adjustment of the heating current is allowed the system is open loop. The test sample is then brought in contact with the glow wire element, usually by means of a sliding rail. The rail arrangement is such that the test sample presses against the glow wire with a force of 1 N and prevents it from penetrating more than 7 mm after initial contact.

The net result being that proper code-signed signatures from Apple ship with the malware, lending the Trojan legitimacy. Cybercriminals using the malware will still have to tuck it away in an installer (for a legitimate-sounding program) and trick the user into firing it up. As ever, it pays to be cautious about anything youre installing on your computer. According to Sixgill, the malware uses an unpatched zero-day vulnerability to gain root privileges on macOS. Hatful of nastiness As to what can be carried out on the victims machine once its compromised, that includes remote command execution, uploading and/or downloading files, logging key presses (to steal passwords), taking screenshots, compromising the webcam, and accessing iCloud accounts (even bypassing two-factor authentication). A whole hatful of nastiness in other words, and apparently the RAT is also capable of popping up a custom window to demand details such as a credit card number.
