Growing problem: Pot lights give ham radio operators a buzz - AP NEW!
(Elsevier) Tanning devices cost the US $343.1 million a year in medical costs because of the skin cancers their use is associated with, according to a new study published in the Journal of Cancer Policy. In a new study, Dr. Hugh Waters and his colleagues from the University of North Carolina established how prevalent indoor tanning-related skin cancers are in the US, and calculated the costs of these diseases.

New studies illustrate how gamers get good - Science Daily NEW!
Partly inspired by the dynamics of a flock of birds, engineers devised a computational method for drones to quickly record whether they are over water, oil or the edge of the spill. This simple information is shared with the other drones in the swarm, as opposed to sharing actual images or video, which would require too much bandwidth.
Researchers used data from online video games to study what kinds of practice and habits help people acquire skill. Beyond simply learning about what makes gamers good, the investigators hope that the work will shed light more generally on the ways in which people can optimize their performance in other domains.

Drone leader DJI introduced its M200 series of rugged drones on a windy mountaintop overlooking the city of Barcelona, on the Sunday before Mobile World Congress. This was the perfect place to show them off: The entry-level M200, and the higher-end M210 and M210RTK, may not have all the gewgaws of the companyâ€™s Inspire and Matrice models for professional photography, but they can operate in harsher conditions, making them indispensable to industries like construction and utilities, as well as field researchers and first responders.Â These demanding customers will be the first to get the M200 series when the drones ship in the second quarter. Prices havenâ€™t been announced, but the drones will be sold through dealers, meaning thereâ€™ll be no doorbusters. The dream, of course, is that some of the coolest features will someday trickle down to the more attainable Mavic or Phantom consumer lines.Â To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Alibaba calls for tougher Chinese laws against counterfeiters - PC World 1 hour ago
If only Torment: Tides of Numenera were twice as long. I donâ€™t say that about many gamesâ€”particularly RPGs. Even some of the genreâ€™s best could afford to lose 10 to 15 hours of filler quests, cinch up the storyâ€™s sagging middle, and get on with it.Not so, here. Whatâ€™s frustrating and yet also tantalizing about Tides of Numenera is that it gives us a glimpse of infinite potential, then cuts it short.A new tormentDespite being billed as a â€śspiritual successorâ€ť to Infinity Engine cult classic Planescape: Torment, itâ€™s important to mention the two are officially unrelated. This is not a sequel.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Qualcomm details plans for Windows 10 PCs with Snapdragon 835 chips - PC World NEW!
Under pressure from the U.S. government and vendors in various markets to crack down on counterfeiters, Alibaba has called on the Chinese authorities for clearer laws and higher penalties.â€śLaw-enforcement agencies often found it difficult to classify and quantify incidences of counterfeiting and also had difficulties building legal cases due to ambiguous counterfeiting laws," the Chinese retail giant said in a statement, which claimed that the company's strenuous efforts to curb counterfeiting have been often stymied by an inadequate regulatory framework in the country.As a result, the authorities investigated only 1,184 cases of 4,495 possible leads on counterfeiting submitted by Alibaba in 2016. Only 33 or 0.7 percent of the cases resulted in convictions. Law enforcement was only able to build 469 cases from the 1,184 leads. Each of the cases involved goods of a value exceeding the statutory minimum of 50,000 yuan (US$7,274) for criminal investigation.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
