You Can Now Track Carbon In an Ear of Corn From Farm to Table

Companies will be soon able to track the carbon emissions from an ear of corn to a pork chop, allowing them to market products to environmentally conscious eaters. Bloomberg reports: Farmer's Business Network Inc. -- which has been likened to an "Amazon" for farmers -- has launched Gro Network, which will track and score the carbon intensity of grain. That will allow buyers to label their products to consumers as "green" and potentially get a higher price for farmers who use more sustainable pra...

Guest Post: Silicon Valley’s APA Challenge to PTAB Discretion

Guest post by Saurabh Vishnubhakat, Professor at the Texas A&M University School of Law and College of Engineering.  Professor Vishnubhakat was formerly an advisor at the USPTO, but his arguments here should not be imputed to the USPTO or to any other organization. This week, four iconic Silicon Valley technology companies—Apple, Cisco, Google, and Intel—sued the USPTO under the Administrative Procedure Act.  The lawsuit challenges the USPTO’s so-called NHK-Fintiv rule, named after a pair of int...

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst A federal appeals court ruled on Wednesday that the NSA's sweeping program to collect Americans' phone records was illegal and possibly unconstitutional.

The FBI Botches Its DNC Hack Warning In 2016 -- But Says It Won't Next Time

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Wired: On April 28, 2016, an IT tech staffer for the Democratic National Committee named Yared Tamene made a sickening discovery: A notorious Russian hacker group known as Fancy Bear had penetrated a DNC server "at the heart of the network," as he would later tell the US Senate's Select Committee on Intelligence. By this point the intruders already had the ability, he said, to delete, alter, or steal data from the network at will. And somehow this breach ...

How “Human” Is Your Workplace? These Four Questions Reveal The Truth.

by Edward D. Hess, author of “Hyper-Learning: How to Adapt to the Speed of Change“ As the Digital Age advances and technology takes over more jobs, workers must get better at those “human” skills computers can’t do. They must excel at critical thinking, innovative thinking, collaborating, and emotionally engaging with others in the creation and delivery of products and services. Most of all, one must excel at continuously learning… and unlearning… and relearning. I call this last piece “Hyper-L...

Track autonomous vehicle testing in your state with this new tool from the US government

The U.S. government rolled out a new online tool Wednesday designed to give the public insight into where and who is testing automated vehicle technology throughout the country. The official name of the online tool — Automated Vehicle Transparency and Engagement for Safe Testing Initiative tracking tool — is a jargony mess of a word salad. Fortunately, its mechanics are straightforward. The online tool gives users the ability to find information about on-road testing of automated vehicles in 17 ...

Engineers Have Figured Out How To Make Interactive Paper

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Gizmodo: Engineers at Purdue University have created a printing process by which you can coat paper or cardboard with "highly fluorinated molecules." This then makes the coated paper dust, oil, and water-repellent, meaning you can then print multiple circuit layers onto the paper without smudging the ink. According to a paper the engineers published in Nano Energy, these "triboelectric areas" are then capable of "self-powered Bluetooth wireless communicat...

Russia May Force Apple To Reduce Its App Store Tax To 20%

A new bill submitted as draft legislation to Russia's lower house of parliament wants to see the commission taken by app store owners limited to just 20 percent. The change would impact both Apple and Google's app stores, but any other that operate within Russia. PCMag reports: It sounds like a great move for app developers, but the bill goes further and stipulates that developers would be required to pay 30 percent of their app income to a special IT training fund. So rather than losing 30 perc...

Mighty Buildings’ 3D-printed homes might be a great solution to the housing crisis

Houses in California that would sell for $350K anywhere else in the country regularly start at $1M. And if you’re a renter, forget about it. You’ll pay thousands a month for a part-time share in a studio apartment. But that’s not the housing crisis we’re talking about. The more concerning one is the homelessness problem in California and around the world. However, that’s not a very sexy topic so let’s split the difference. Mighty Buildings is a company that might just be able to directly address...

FCC dings company for $164K after its false broadband claims distorted national report

The FCC was deeply embarrassed last year when it was found that its rosy broadband deployment report was off by millions, owing to a single, extremely suspect filing that conjured 62 million customers out of thin air. The company responsible is being assessed a $163,912 fine, but the underlying problems that let it happen haven’t been fixed — as Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel assesses it: “What a mess.” The issue, as critics and the Commission itself have pointed out for years, is that the ...

Samsung’s got a new budget 5G handset and a fitness tracker with a two-week battery

Yesterday’s overflow Galaxy Unpacked event was about one thing and one thing alone: the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Honestly, it was a bit anticlimactic after its predecessor found Samsung unveiling five new devices. But the singular focus wasn’t for lack of new stuff to show off. In fact, the company just unleashed a whole slew of new products across a wide range of categories, including a gaming monitor, charging pad, refrigerator and washing machine. There are two in particular I’d like to break out her...
