#3. 28/06/2022 12:42NATO to put 300,000 troops on high alert, will increase presence in Baltic countries along Russia's border by thousands

Nato's secretary general has said this week's Madrid summit will agree the alliance's most significant transformation for a generation, putting 300,000 troops at high readiness in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Jens Stoltenberg said the military alliance's forces in the Baltic states and five other frontline countries would be increased "up to brigade levels" - doubled or trebled to between 3,000 and 5,000 troops. That would amount to "the biggest overhaul of our collective defence and deterrence since the cold war," Stoltenberg said before the meeting of the 30-country alliance, which runs from Tuesday to Thursday this week.

New farmers' protests brought traffic to a standstill on several motorways around the country on Monday, despite police warnings not to break the law. Around 15 tractors blocked the A2 at Best, in the direction of Den Bosch, by laying hay bales across the carriageway. Similar blockades were set up on the A67 at Liessel, between Eindhoven and Venlo, and on the A28 between Hoogeveen and Assen. Tractors also blocked an access road to the N35 at Ommen, Overijssel. The ANWB said queues of up to 8km had built up at the protest locations. Protest organisers including Agractie and Farmers Defence Force (FDF) warned motorists to expect disruption on the roads from noon, but denied that they were co-ordinating the action.

#33. 28/06/2022 11:34Death rates from Covid are lower than ever before despite recent surge in cases, analysis reveals

Death rates from Covid are lower than ever, according to analysis carried out for The Mail on Sunday. Experts say there is little need to fear a recent surge in cases as fewer than one in 3,000 infected people now dies from coronavirus - with the rate even lower for the vaccinated. The analysis of official data by Oxford University shows the 'infection fatality rate' has dropped about 30-fold since the pandemic began due to a combination of vaccine protection and naturally acquired infection.

#90. 28/06/2022 09:00Linux su vs sudo: what's the difference? by David Both

Linux su vs sudo: what's the difference? David Both Tue, 06/28/2022 - 03:00
2 readers like this
2 readers like this

Both the su and the sudo commands allow users to perform system administration tasks that are not permitted for non-privileged users—that is, everyone but the root user. Some people prefer the sudo command: For example, Seth Kenlon recently published "5 reasons to use sudo on Linux", in which he extols its many virtues.

I, on the other hand, am partial to the su command and prefer it to sudo for most of the system administration work I do. In this article, I compare the two commands and explain why I prefer su over sudo but still use both.

Historical perspective of sysadmins

The su and sudo commands were designed for a different world. Early Unix computers required full-time system administrators, and they used the root account as their only administrative account. In this ancient world, the person entrusted with the root password would log in as root on a teletype machine or CRT terminal such as the DEC VT100, then perform the administrative tasks necessary to manage the Unix computer.

The root user would also have a non-root account for non-root activities such as writing documents and managing their personal email. There were usually many non-root user accounts on those computers, and none of those users needed total root access. A user might need to run one or two commands as root, but very infrequently. Many sysadmins log in as root to work as root and log out of our root sessions when finished. Some days require staying logged in as root all day long. Most sysadmins rarely use sudo because it requires typing more than necessary to run essential commands.

These tools both provide escalated privileges, but the way they do so is significantly different. This difference is due to the distinct use cases for which they were originally intended.

sudo

The original intent of sudo was to enable the root user to delegate to one or two non-root users access to one or two specific privileged commands they need regularly. The sudo command gives non-root users temporary access to the elevated privileges needed to perform tasks such as adding and deleting users, deleting files that belong to other users, installing new software, and generally any task required to administer a modern Linux host.

Allowing the users access to a frequently used command or two that requires elevated privileges saves the sysadmin a lot of requests from users and eliminates the wait time. The sudo command does not switch the user account to become root; most non-root users should never have full root access. In most cases, sudo lets a user issue one or two commands then allows the privilege escalation to expire. During this brief time interval, usually configured to be 5 minutes, the user may perform any necessary administrative tasks that require elevated privileges. Users who need to continue working with elevated privileges but are not ready to issue another task-related command can run the sudo -v command to revalidate the credentials and extend the time for another 5 minutes.

Using the sudo command does have the side effect of generating log entries of commands used by non-root users, along with their IDs. The logs can facilitate a problem-related postmortem to determine when users need more training. (You thought I was going to say something like "assign blame," didn't you?)

su

The su command is intended to allow a non-root user to elevate their privilege level to that of root—in fact, the non-root user becomes the root user. The only requirement is that the user know the root password. There are no limits on this because the user is now logged in as root.

No time limit is placed on the privilege escalation provided by the su command. The user can work as root for as long as necessary without needing to re-authenticate. When finished, the user can issue the exit command to revert from root back to their own non-root account.

Controversy and change

There has been some recent disagreement about the uses of su versus sudo.

Real [Sysadmins] don't use sudo. —Paul Venezia

Venezia contends in his InfoWorld article that sudo is used as an unnecessary prop for many people who act as sysadmins. He does not spend much time defending or explaining this position; he just states it as a fact. And I agree with him—for sysadmins. We don't need the training wheels to do our jobs. In fact, they get in the way.

However,

The times they are a'changin.' —Bob Dylan

Dylan was correct, although he was not singing about computers. The way computers are administered has changed significantly since the advent of the one-person, one-computer era. In many environments, the user of a computer is also its administrator. This makes it necessary to provide some access to the powers of root for those users.

Some modern distributions, such as Ubuntu and its derivatives, are configured to use the sudo command exclusively for privileged tasks. In those distros, it is impossible to log in directly as the root user or even to su to root, so the sudo command is required to allow non-root users any access to root privileges. In this environment, all system administrative tasks are performed using sudo.

This configuration is possible by locking the root account and adding the regular user account(s) to the wheel group. This configuration can be circumvented easily. Try a little experiment on any Ubuntu host or VM. Let me stipulate the setup here so you can reproduce it if you wish. I installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS1 and installed it in a VM using VirtualBox. During the installation, I created a non-root user, student, with a simple password for this experiment.

Log in as the user student and open a terminal session. Look at the entry for root in the /etc/shadow file, where the encrypted passwords are stored.

student@ubuntu1:~$ cat /etc/shadow
cat: /etc/shadow: Permission denied

Permission is denied, so we cannot look at the /etc/shadow file. This is common to all distributions to prevent non-privileged users from seeing and accessing the encrypted passwords, which would make it possible to use common hacking tools to crack those passwords.

Now let's try to su - to root.

student@ubuntu1:~$ su -
Password: <Enter root password – but there isn't one>
su: Authentication failure

This fails because the root account has no password and is locked out. Use the sudo command to look at the /etc/shadow file.

student@ubuntu1:~$ sudo cat /etc/shadow
[sudo] password for student: <enter the student password>
root:!:17595:0:99999:7:::
<snip>
student:$6$tUB/y2dt$A5ML1UEdcL4tsGMiq3KOwfMkbtk3WecMroKN/:17597:0:99999:7:::
<snip>

I have truncated the results to show only the entry for the root and student users. I have also shortened the encrypted password so the entry will fit on a single line. The fields are separated by colons (:) and the second field is the password. Notice that the password field for root is a bang, known to the rest of the world as an exclamation point (!). This indicates that the account is locked and that it cannot be used.

Now all you need to do to use the root account as a proper sysadmin is to set up a password for the root account.

student@ubuntu1:~$ sudo su -
[sudo] password for student: <Enter password for student>
root@ubuntu1:~# passwd root
Enter new UNIX password: <Enter new root password>
Retype new UNIX password: <Re-enter new root password>
passwd: password updated successfully
root@ubuntu1:~#

Now you can log in directly on a console as root or su directly to root instead of using sudo for each command. Of course, you could just use sudo su - every time you want to log in as root, but why bother?

Please do not misunderstand me. Distributions like Ubuntu and their up- and downstream relatives are perfectly fine, and I have used several of them over the years. When using Ubuntu and related distros, one of the first things I do is set a root password so that I can log in directly as root. Other distributions, like Fedora and its relatives, now provide some interesting choices during installation. The first Fedora release where I noticed this was Fedora 34, which I have installed many times while writing an upcoming book.

One of those installation options can be found on the page to set the root password. The new option allows the user to choose "Lock root account" in the way an Ubuntu root account is locked. There is also an option on this page that allows remote SSH login to this host as root using a password, but that only works when the root account is unlocked. The second option is on the page that allows the creation of a non-root user account. One of the options on this page is "Make this user administrator." When this option is checked, the user ID is added to a special group called the wheel group, which authorizes members of that group to use the sudo command. Fedora 36 even mentions the wheel group in the description of that checkbox.

More than one non-root user can be set as an administrator. Anyone designated as an administrator using this method can use the sudo command to perform all administrative tasks on a Linux computer. Linux only allows the creation of one non-root user during installation, so other new users can be added to the wheel group when created. Existing users can be added to the wheel group by the root user or another administrator directly by using a text editor or the usermod command.

In most cases, today's administrators need to do only a few essential tasks such as adding a new printer, installing updates or new software, or deleting software that is no longer needed. These GUI tools require a root or administrative password and will accept the password from a user designated as an administrator.

How I use su and sudo on Linux

I use both su and sudo. They each have an important place in my sysadmin toolbox.

I can't lock the root account because I need to use it to run my Ansible playbooks and the rsbu Bash program I wrote to perform backups. Both of these need to be run as root, and so do several other administrative Bash scripts I have written. I use the su command to switch users to the root user so I can perform these and many other common tasks. Elevating my privileges to root using su is especially helpful when performing problem determination and resolution. I really don't want a sudo session timing out on me while I am in the middle of my thought process.

I use the sudo command for tasks that need root privilege when a non-root user needs to perform them. I set the non-root account up in the sudoers file with access to only those one or two commands needed to complete the tasks. I also use sudo myself when I need to run only one or two quick commands with escalated privileges.

Conclusions

The tools you use don't matter nearly as much as getting the job done. What difference does it make if you use vim or Emacs, systemd or SystemV, RPM or DEB, sudo or su? The bottom line here is that you should use the tools with which you are most comfortable and that work best for you. One of the greatest strengths of Linux and open source is that there are usually many options available for each task we need to accomplish.

Both su and sudo have strengths, and both can be secure when applied properly for their intended use cases. I choose to use both su and sudo mostly in their historical roles because that works for me. I prefer su for most of my own work because it works best for me and my workflow.

Footage on state-owned Al-Mamlaka TV showed the large cylinder, said to have been carrying about 30 tonnes of gas, plunging from a crane on a moored vessel and violently releasing the chlorine gas cloud.

The force of the blast sent a truck rolling down the dock, while port workers ran for their lives.

Understanding how cities affect birds can help scientists understand and predict how bird populations may change in the future and help birds and humans coexist.

Hi,

I currently work in the auto industry, and have recently solidified an opportunity to transfer from my current role in Manufacturing to a role within AI, specifically focusing on Autonomous Driving. I currently work as a data scientist, and am responsible for setting up pipelines, modeling, forecasting, etc.. I am fluent in Python and have some basic introductory experience in Neural Nets and using image tensors (a capstone project in undergrad, graduate school). I currently make 70k but would like to obviously aim higher, given the current market and skills required for this job. I have 3.5 years of experience when looking at my career from a general "computer science" point of view. What is a reasonable amount to expect in a position like this? Should I throw out a large number and work backwards with my company from there? The position is Remote, but based out of MI, USA. I live in the States.

Thanks.

Avatars are popular in games like VRchat and it lets people present themselves in anyway they want. Currently there are many companies working on AR glasses and others working in AI machine learning. I don't think it's far fetched to see these being used together and possibly having avatar overlays that link up through an AR network with an AI that deepfakes it over real people. I think it would be enticing for a lot of people especially those who feel like they could look better. If this were possible would you use it? Do you think it would affect dating?

#242. 27/06/2022 22:08Britain's earliest humans made Canterbury home, 600,000-year-old finds reveal

Archaeological discoveries made on the outskirts of Canterbury, Kent (England) confirm the presence of early humans in southern Britain between 560,000 and 620,000 years ago, making it one of the earliest known Paleolithic sites in northern Europe. The breakthrough, involving controlled excavations and radiometric dating, comes a century after stone tool artifacts were first uncovered at the site. The research, led by archaeologists at the University of Cambridge, confirms that Homo heidelbergensis, an ancestor of Neanderthals, occupied southern Britain in this period (when it was still attached to Europe) and gives tantalizing evidence hinting at some of the earliest animal hide processing in European prehistory. Located in an ancient riverbed, the Canterbury site was originally discovered in the 1920s when local laborers unearthed artifacts known as handaxes (most now in the British Museum), but by applying modern dating techniques to new excavations their age has finally been...

#245. 27/06/2022 22:03The return of industrial warfare

Can the West still provide the arsenal of democracy? The war in Ukraine has proven that the age of industrial warfare is still here. The massive consumption of equipment, vehicles and ammunition requires a large-scale industrial base for resupply - quantity still has a quality of its own. The mass scale combat has pitted 250,000 Ukrainian soldiers, together with 450,000 recently mobilised citizen soldiers against about 200,000 Russian and separatist troops. The effort to arm, feed and supply these armies is a monumental task. Ammunition resupply is particularly onerous. For Ukraine, compounding this task are Russian deep fires capabilities, which target Ukrainian military industry and transportation networks throughout the depth of the country. The Russian army has also suffered from Ukrainian cross-border attacks and acts of sabotage, but at a smaller scale. The rate of ammunition and equipment consumption in Ukraine can only be sustained by a large-scale industrial base. This...

This year's G7 summit, which is being held at Germany's Elmau castle - a luxury hotel in Bavaria - cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of euros, the German state broadcaster ARD has reported while questioning the worth of the event. The gathering is an informal two-day meeting of the leaders of the seven largest Western economies - the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Canada and Japan - during which a number of non-binding commitments are usually agreed. Held between June 26 and 28, it cost €166 million ($175.7 million), according to ARD's Tagesschau news service, which is provided by its Norddeutscher Rundfunk division in Hamburg. This was some €30 million ($31.75 million) more than seven years ago, when the summit was also held at Elmau. The bulk of the expenses go toward policy security arrangements, which cost €147 million ($155.6 million) this time. The summit's critics believe that this is over the top for a relatively short meeting that hardly allows the leaders to properly...

Thomas's statement came in response to the court's decision to turn away an appeal from a Christian nonprofit group who disputed their characterization by the civil rights watchdog group Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Coral Ridge Ministries Media sued the SPLC for defamation for listing them as a hate group on their public database, which led to Amazon excluding Coral Ridge as a recipient of charitable contributions from online shoppers. Thomas dissented from the Supreme Court's decision not to hear the lawsuit, which had been dismissed by lower courts for failing to overcome the decades-old legal standard, established in the landmark 1964 New York Times v. Sullivan decision, that public figures who sue for defamation must not only prove defendants made defamatory statements,...

One of the most affected is Ecuador because if in 2021, 20% of the bananas it exported were destined to Russia (about 85 million boxes) now it has nowhere to put them and they will spoil with the consequent monetary loss. Last year Ecuador obtained 706 million dollars for banana exports to the Eurasian giant; 142 million dollars for shrimp; 99 million dollars for flowers; 28 million dollars for fish and 17 million dollars for coffee. Paraguay had Russia as its second buyer of beef and in 2021 it sent 79,213 tons which represented an income of 314 million dollars and now with the disconnection of Moscow from the international banking system (swift) it does not know how to collect or send the product.

​ More than a million voters have shifted to the Republican Party over the past year, including tens of thousands of swing voters — with some declaring they can no longer support the Democratic Party's policies, according to a report Monday. The move to the GOP is occurring in every part of the country, in Democratic and Republican states and cities since President Biden defeated former President Donald Trump, an analysis of voter registration data by the Associated Press found. ​ Over the past year, about two-thirds of the 1.7 million voters who changed party affiliations shifted to the Republican Party, and overall, more than 1 million people became Republicans compared to about 630,000 who became Democrats. The shift most notably is playing out in the suburbs, which played a critical role in Biden's 2020 victory. Well-educated swing voters who voted against Trump appear to be returning to the Republican Party, analysis shows.

In their paper published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the group details their analysis of multiple sets of data used to describe the rare and unique atmospheric event and what it showed them about such events in general. In 2015, citizen scientist I. Griffith noticed something unusual happening in the night sky above him over Dunedin, New Zealand. An arc of light, which he described as blood red, moved across the dark sky. Intrigued, he grabbed his camera and began filming the action. Over the course of the next 30 minutes, the arc slowly transformed into what has come to be known as a Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement (STEVE).

The Army is tossing its mandate for potential recruits to have a high school diploma or GED certificate to enlist in the service, in one of the most dramatic moves yet in the escalating recruiting crisis hitting the entire Defense Department. On Thursday, the service announced that individuals may enlist without those previously required education certifications if they ship to basic training this fiscal year, which ends Oct. 1. Recruits must also be at least 18 years old and otherwise qualify for a job in the active-duty Army. They also must score at least a 50 on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB, an SAT-style quiz to measure a potential recruit's academic ability. A 50 on the test is a relatively low score, with 31 being the minimum to qualify for service. Combat arms jobs such as infantrymen and cavalry scouts need only minimal scores to serve, while admin work such as a human resources specialist or public affairs require scores of 100 or higher.

Julian Assange was strip-searched and moved to a bare cell on the very day the UK Home Secretary Priti Patel approved his extradition to the US, the WikiLeaks founder's wife, Stella Moris, told journalists on Thursday. The 50-year-old remained there for a weekend as prison guards searched his own cell, she added. "Prison is a constant humiliation but what happened on Friday felt especially cruel," Moris, who married Assange in March, has said, adding that the guards had told their inmate that it had all been done "for his own protection." According to Moris, the guards were looking for any things that could be used by a person to take their own life.

#268. 27/06/2022 21:42New book offers a vivid insider account of how Cold War Soviet and American efforts to ditch their nukes played out

Former US Marine Corps intelligence officer, and RT columnist, Scott Ritter has produced an engaging and timely book that gives an eyewitness account of those Cold War days when ideological foes managed to put the brakes on an out-of-control arms race. Many people, when confronted with bland Soviet-era terms such as 'arms control' and 'disarmament,' may be tempted to stifle a yawn and move on. However, that would be a mistake. Here is a real page-turner - part history lesson, part Clancy thriller, with just the right touch of comic relief - that examines a critical period during the Cold War when the Americans and Russians were working to eliminate their missile stockpiles amid a climate of full-blown distrust. The story begins in 1979 when the Soviets achieved a strategic edge against NATO forces with the introduction of the SS-20 nuclear-tipped missile. As if on cue, the Americans responded with the Pershing II, a projectile that could hit Moscow from Western Europe in eight...

#276. 27/06/2022 21:33The entire world order has changed

It was Jim O'Neill, Goldman's chief economist at the time, who coined the term BRICS in 2001 for Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Little did he know. He was talking about emerging economies. 13 years later, they no longer are. They are good for about 40% of the world population, and some 25% of global GDP. The world has not stood still since 2009, and it's moving faster now. Ironically, the BRICS countries never looked to be as prominent economically as they are today, they were happy to build up one step at a time. But then NATO decided to move east at a pace that Russia found intolerable, and now the BRICS have taken on a whole new meaning. 25% of global GDP may not seem that much, but the 5 countries hold a much bigger share of -essential- global resources and/or raw materials than that, and China moreover delivers an outsize part of finished products. And we now know that they won't be BRICS for much longer. Many countries choose to be affiliated, in one form or...

#277. 27/06/2022 21:33Why drag queen performances are not appropriate for children

Last week, the Washington Post ran a column in defense of Drag Queen Story Hour. The issue of whether drag performances are harmful or wholesome has been hotly debated, with politicians including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposing laws to ban them for child audiences. Let's be clear, the injection of drag queens into children's consciousnesses goes beyond innocently sitting in a classroom reading storybooks. Kids are being brought to performances that are marketed as kid-friendly, despite being, in many cases, sexually explicit. For example , at an event in Dallas, Texas, earlier this month, drag queens accepted cash tips from young children while writhing suggestively in front of a particularly memorable neon sign that read, "It's not gonna lick itself." An additional extension of this, as I've written before, is children themselves partaking in drag and performing for adult audiences.

#279. 27/06/2022 21:30Free speech victory: Supreme Court rules in favor of football coach who prayed at 50-yard line after games

The Supreme Court ruled Monday for a former high school football coach whose prayers at the 50-yard line drew crowds and controversy, declaring his public prayers were protected as free speech. The 6-3 decision is a symbolic victory for those who seek a larger role for prayers and religion in public schools. The court stressed that Coach Joe Kennedy's prayers began as private and personal expression and were not official acts of promoting religion at school. Writing for the majority, Justice Neil M. Gorsuch said: "Both the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the 1st Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy's. Nor does a proper understanding of the Amendment's Establishment Clause require the government to single out private religious speech for special disfavor. The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike."

The study, which examined the vaccination status of all 1,612 hospital cases of myocarditis and 1,613 hospital cases of pericarditis in France between May 12th and October 31st 2021, found that the risk of being hospitalised with myocarditis was 8.1 times higher in the week following a Pfizer second dose (95% confidence interval [CI], 6.7 to 9.9) and 30 times higher following a Moderna second dose (CI, 21 to 43).

According to the report, the country now has only 1.1 thousand tons of gasoline and 7.5 thousand tons of diesel left in storage. "Last week, no fuel vessels sailed to Sri Lanka because Colombo failed to make the necessary payments for the cargo," Daily Mirror sources said. The country has also been blacklisted by foreign companies because it recently defaulted on its debts and is now required to provide international bank guarantees for new orders.

#288. 27/06/2022 21:20Joe Biden 'unwittingly' helped finance Hunter's trysts with Russia-linked escorts

President Joe Biden apparently unwittingly financed his son's participation in an escort ring tied to Russia, records from a copy of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop show. Hunter Biden spent over $30,000 on escorts, many of whom were linked to ".ru" Russian email addresses and worked with an "exclusive model agency" called UberGFE during a 3 1/2 month period between November 2018 and March 2019. He managed to do so thanks in part to Joe Biden committing to wiring him a total of $100,000 to help pay his bills from December 2018 through January 2019. In one instance, Joe Biden wired his son $5,000 while he was actively engaged with an UberGFE escort. In another, texts indicated Hunter Biden convinced his father to wire him $20,000 to finance his stay at a New York City drug rehabilitation program that he never checked into.

So, I'll put it out there in case it's useful to anyone. Energy is essential to the world of equity and just redistribution proposed in the utopian vision of managerial liberalism, with its bureaucratic paternalism, social engineering, and administrative state. There will be somehow a continuous supply of the energy needed to support whatever social order the wise experts and planners deem necessary for us all. At the moment, the richest, most efficient sources of energy come from ancient layers of dinosaur juice under the surface of the earth. And there does still seem to be a pretty good supply of such dinosaur juice going forward for some time into the future. Certainly, it's reasonable to...

As climate change alters environments across the globe, scientists have discovered that in response, many species are shifting the timing of major life events, such as reproduction. With an earlier spring thaw, for example, some flowers bloom sooner. But scientists don't know whether making these significant changes in life history will ultimately help a species survive or lead to bigger problems.

Footage on state TV showed a large cylinder plunging from a crane on a moored vessel, causing a violent release of a yellow gas.

The force of the blast sent a truck rolling down the harbourside, while port workers could be seen running for their lives.

Nearby areas were evacuated and residents told to stay indoors.

The death toll rose to 10, government spokesman Faisal al-Shaboul told AFP, revising an initial toll of five killed.

Provinces in Turkey's Black Sea region started the week with flash floods after downpours late Sunday. The worst floods appeared to hit the Inebolu district of Kastamonu province. Inebolu stream overflowed its banks Monday morning, inundating residential areas along the stream, damaging parks and a marketplace. Basement floors of houses were filled with floodwaters, while the local municipality warned the owners of shops on the first floors of buildings not to open. Locals were also urged not to approach the banks and to take shelter on the upper floors of buildings if their first and basement floor residences are at risk. Downpours continued into Monday and also caused sporadic power outages. Two iron pedestrian bridges over the stream collapsed in the floods. The floods also led to the closure of a road connecting the district to central Kastamonu. Inebolu is some 25 kilometers away from Bozkurt, a district of Kastamonu where more than 80 people lost their lives when dire floods...

#417. 27/06/2022 18:31Two MSc options, not sure which one to go for. Any advice would be appreciated

Hi all

Hope everyone is having a good Monday (Tuesday depending on where you are).

I have an undergraduate degree in Economics. I have spent a few years working now (mainly in economic analysis), but I am looking at doing an MSc in the DS/ML/AI space as I think it could help my current job, but equally, I have a genuine interest in the fields so could utilise it for a career switch.

The two courses I am looking at are:

https://online.essex.ac.uk/courses/msc-data-science/#overview

https://online.essex.ac.uk/courses/msc-artificial-intelligence/

I am unsure whether it is better to go a bit more general and opt for the DS course, or go for the AI course. Personally, some of the DS modules I feel I already have the skills in such as the data visualisation, which is pushing me towards AI. Furthermore, when I have done some basic NLP, I have enjoyed that a lot and that's available in the AI course but not the DS course (you can see in the course structure then module choice what is included).

In terms of future career, as I said above potential career switch (even if it means I have to go into an entry level job before climbing up the ladder again). A PhD would also be an option.

Do you have any advice or general thoughts on the two courses above?

Cheers all

It's a tender tale of unrequited love...

Toronto songwriter Jessie Reyez returns with new single 'FRAUD'.

The release is her first solo outing for two years, and it finds the Grammy nominated R&B artist touching on something incredibly personal.

Dealing with unrequited love, the explicit lyrics take down the fuckboi tendencies of her ex.

It's all done in that remarkably soothing style, with Jessie Reyez singing: "Hands high if you love somebody / That don't love you back, love you back / Hands high if you know that they're no good for you..."

Emma Higgins directed the video, alongside Jessie Reyez - it's the Toronto artist's directorial debut, in fact.

David Flucker celebrated his centennial birthday this week, but still went into work the next day, as usual, at the St. Columba’s Hospice shop in Edinburgh, Scotland. David spends four hours traveling roundtrip to the […]

It's a dazzling ode to vintage J-Pop...

London all-rounder MISOGI has shared his new single 'GOSSIP'.

A true Muti-hyphenate, MISOGI's future-fixated sound has resulted in production work with the likes of AJ Tracey, Lil Yachty, and BONES.

His own songwriting is also sought after, with 2021 single 'Bunny' racing across DSPs.

New single 'GOSSIP' is his first since that release, and it's an ode to vintage J-Pop innovation.

Sparkling with colour and energy, there's of joy, and unleashing to 'GOSSIP' the makes MISOGI so infectious.

Speaking about Gossip, MISOGI says:

"I was very inspired by the work of Yasutaka Nakata, namely the music he's made with Jpop groups Perfume, Capsule and Coltemonikha. This song is an ode to that early Jpop era..."

Tune in now.

Iran announced Monday that weavers in the southern province of Fars had produced the world's largest kilim rug, measuring an enormous 105 square metres (more than 1,100 square feet).

The 7x15-metre kilim was the handiwork of seven expert weavers and three assistants in the town of Qirokarzin, said Mohammad-Jafar Ebrahimi, the local cultural heritage chief, as quoted on state television.

He said it was commissioned by the energy-rich Gulf state of Qatar.

Iran and the United States plan to resume indirect talks this week in Qatar, in a fresh bid to revive the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, both sides said Monday.

The talks will be separate from broader EU-mediated negotiations in Vienna between Iran and major powers, the bloc's top diplomat Josep Borrell said Saturday in Tehran.

The nuclear deal has been hanging by a thread since 2018, when then US president Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from it and began reimposing harsh economic sanctions on America's arch enemy.

#457. 27/06/2022 17:23Observing different mating tactics in the Japanese scorpionfly

Owing to the high competition and the prevalence of natural selection, many male insects must develop alternative tactics to mate with a female. Weaker males who lose in a competition (or loser males) may resort to hovering or sneaking around in order to find a mate. Recent studies have also shown that alternative mating behavior is influenced by environmental factors such as food availability, predation, and population density. For example, scorpionflies—which are often used to study the mating behavior of insects—use three alternative mating tactics—gifting nutritious saliva, gifting food, and forced mating—to obtain a mate. Male Japanese scorpionflies also employ feeding mating (i.e., mating while females feed without gifting them anything or releasing pheromones).

The advent of single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) has revolutionized the fields of medicine and biology by providing the ability to study the inner workings of thousands of cells at once. But scRNA-seq methods are limited by potential inaccuracies in determining cell composition and inefficient complementary DNA (cDNA) amplification—a process by which a double-stranded DNA that "complements" the single-stranded RNA is generated and replicated millions of times—by the commonly-used template-switching reaction.

Against this background, an international team of scientists performed the first comprehensive comparative analysis of movement data of three species of threatened Gyps vultures across Africa. They found that individual home ranges can be as large as 75,000 km² and thus significantly exceed existing protected areas.

During the explosion, "the ash column reached a height of 1,500 meters above (the) crater of the volcano that due to the effect of the wind" reached with "a small layer of ashes the communities Las Grecias 3, Las Grecias 4 and the city of El Viejo", indicated the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (Ineter) in a communiqué. However, the volcano's activity was of "moderate intensity" and did not cause major damage to nearby towns, it said.
