Apple Confirms Tattoos Can Affect Apple Watch’s Heart Rate Sensor Readings
Apple Watch uses green LED lights paired with light‑sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through your wrist at any given moment. When your heart beats, the blood flow in your wrist — and the green light absorption — is greater. Between beats, it’s less. By flashing its LED lights hundreds of times per second, Apple Watch can calculate the number of times the heart beats each minute — your heart rate.
The HoloLens Isn't as Great as You Think—At Least Not Yet | WIRED
At the conference, Microsoft also gave personal demos, letting select coders, press, and analysts try the HoloLens. It even let them build simple holographic applications for the device. These demos were also impressive. But the experience didn’t quite match the impression you get from Darren’s apartment. When you wear the device—as opposed to viewing the holograms via a movie camera equipped with very different hardware—your “field of view” is significantly smaller. You only see holograms in a slim area in front of your eyes—an area that spans about 35 to 40 degrees horizontally, according to Brian Blau, an analyst with research outfit Gartner, who received one of the demos.

How Tesla's Batteries Will Power Your Home | WIRED
The problem with renewable sources of energy is that they work on their own schedule—not necessarily when and where people need the power. Batteries, though, have the potential to close the gap. Musk’s system will most likely sit on the far side of the breaker. If you and your house are sucking energy while the sun is up or the wind is blowing, the energy will bypass the battery. And if the battery is full while the renewables are firing, your home system will still be able to discharge back into the grid. And the battery is source-agnostic, which means you can also store energy from the grid, charging up during (cheaper) off-peak hours. And like Tesla’s cars, the Powerwall will connect to HQ via the Internet for late-night firmware upgrades.
Wearing a Suit Makes You Think Differently
As casual attire becomes the norm in a growing number of workplaces, it would seem that the symbolic power of the suit will erode in coming years. Slepian thinks the opposite. “You could even predict the effect could get stronger if formal clothing is only reserved for the most formal of situations,” he says. “It takes a long time for symbols and our agreed interpretations of those symbols to change, and I wouldn't expect the suit as a symbol of power to be leaving us anytime soon.” Meanwhile, no formal research exists—just anecdotal observations—on how the world appears different when wearing a black turtleneck and jeans.
What It Takes To Change Your Brain's Patterns After Age 25
If you want to keep your brain agile, you’re going to have to hone in on parts of the brain that you use less frequently, says Swart. And this new task has to be so challenging that you’ll feel mentally and physically exhausted after practicing the task because you’re forcing your brain to work in ways it's unaccustomed to. This is the only way you’ll actually grow new neurons strong enough to connect with existing neurons, forming new pathways.
Is math discovered or invented? - Jeff Dekofsky
Would mathematics exist if people didn't? Did we create mathematical concepts to help us understand the world around us, or is math the native language of the universe itself? Jeff Dekofsky traces some famous arguments in this ancient and hotly debated question.
We need to talk about an injustice
In an engaging and personal talk — with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks — human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.
Here's What Happened After An Airbnb Host Kicked Two Men Out For Being Gay
In May 2012, Target announced that 100% of the purchase price of any of its Pride merchandise would be donated to the pro-LGBT Family Equality Council. The American Family Association lamented that "Target is joining President Obama in ramming same-sex marriage down the throats of the American people" and urged members to contact Target Chairman Gregg Steinhafel, to "let him know that a majority of Americans oppose same-sex marriage and are able to use their pocketbooks to voice their opposition to companies that support it."
It should be noted that Target has also come under fire from gay advocates. In 2011, Lady Gaga nixed a deal with Target for an exclusive special edition of her "Born This Way" album after it was revealed that the brand had donated $150,000 to MN Forward, a group that was backing Tom Emmer's gubernatorial bid in Minnesota. Emmer was known for being especially conservative and not supporting equal rights for LGBT citizens.
You don’t even have your Apple Watch yet, but these cats do
Many people who stayed up into the wee hours of the night last month to try and buy an Apple Watch found themselves looking at late May and June delivery dates. Of course Apple has been delivering some watches sooner than that, but the fact remains that you still can't just walk into an Apple store and buy one yet . That detail may make it hard to swallow the idea that cats are now wearing Apple Watches as collars. It seems to be a jokey thing, but maybe it's not.

'Nearly naked' pageant rewards real bodies in real panties
I told the contestants how amazing it was that they had the courage to do this show in the first place, because right then I was pretty sure I was going to puke or cry or pee my pants, not necessarily in that order.

Chipotle is the first fast food chain to remove GMO ingredients
Chipotle has removed all genetically modified ingredients from its restaurants, according to a report from The New York Times . Chipotle began labeling dishes that contained GMOs in 2013 and had planned to cut the ingredients out of the company supply chain by the end of 2014, but ultimately needed a few extra months to make the switch. The company is the first major fast food chain to entirely remove GMOs from its menus, spanning 1,831 different locations worldwide.
More trees than there were 100 years ago? It's true!
The increase in trees is due to a number of factors, including conservation and preservation of national parks, responsible tree growing within plantations — which have been planting more trees than they harvest — and the movement of the majority of the population from rural areas to more densely populated areas, such as cities and suburbs. Tree planting efforts begun in the 1950s are paying off and there is more public awareness about the importance of trees and forests. Finally, 63 percent of the forest land in the United States is privately owned, and many landowners are leaving their land intact instead of using it for agriculture or logging (at least partially because many of these activities have shifted overseas).
In the Tenderloin
Last spring, Hugo came to the San Francisco Bay Area on a fellowship from the Headlands Center for the Arts. He and his wife, Tamsyn, enrolled their daughter in a day-care program near City Hall. After drop-off on the first day, Tamsyn found herself walking through the nearby Tenderloin. Despite butting up against some of the city’s most affluent neighborhoods, the Tenderloin, like Skid Row in Los Angeles, has long been known mostly as a hub of poverty and crime. Prostitution, drugs, and homelessness are ubiquitous. When Tamsyn saw a man shooting up in his neck, she called Hugo, who’s known for his portraits of people in marginalized communities. “You’ve got to come down here,” she told him.
To keep a Boeing Dreamliner flying, reboot once every 248 days
The 787 Dreamliner has been plagued with battery woes since its early days, to the point where the Federal Aviation Administration kept it from flying the skies in the past. And while those technical difficulties are apparently taken care of, Boeing's flagship airliner could be on the way to more trouble soon. According to the FAA, there's a software bug in the 787 Dreamliner that can cause its electrical system to fail and, as a result, lead to "loss of control" of the plane. But why? The FAA says this is triggered by the aircraft's electrical generators, which could give out if they have been powered on continuously for over eight months.
248 days == 2^31 100ths of a second. even in 2015, our airplanes have integer overflow bugs https://t.co/6Z8d4y9gjM
- Fiora Aeterna☄ (@FioraAeterna) May 1, 2015
"A Model 787 airplane that has been powered continuously for 248 days can lose all alternating current electrical power due to the generator control units simultaneously going into failsafe mode," the FAA said in a statement warning of the flaw. "We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of all AC electrical power, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
The Psychology Of Color, Summed Up In A Box Of Pencils
Given the multiplicity of colors' meanings, both among individuals and across cultures, the pencil set's declarative labels seem a bit like an oversimplification (for example, green is labeled "sanity," but many know green as the color of envy; "mellowness" here is brown, going against the "mellow yellow" standard). Still, the set invites artists, designers, and dabbling illustrators to become more aware of the connections between color and mood.

Tesla wants its Powerwall to save the grid and your bank account
Our lust for electricity is insatiable. At night we connect a hydra of wires to our phones, computers, smartwatches and tablets. They sip at the electrons being pumped into our homes, filling their batteries to be ready for another day without being tethered to a wall. Tesla wants your house to be ready. Ready for power outages and heat waves. The company says its Powerwall home battery system can untether your home from the power grid for a few hours, which might not sound like much, but could have huge implications for the way we power our lives.

While Hamby will stay on as a CNN contributor through 2016, his new focus will be to lend his considerable political and digital acumen to the social media network as it continues to grow its news product.
The Most Diverse Cities Are Often The Most Segregated
But the reverse can be true, and often is: You can have a diverse city, but not diverse neighborhoods. Whereas Chicago’s citywide diversity index is 70 percent, seventh best out of the 100 most populous U.S. cities, its neighborhood diversity index is just 36 percent, which ranks 82nd. New York also has a big gap. Its citywide diversity index is 73 percent, fourth highest in the country, but its neighborhood diversity index is 47 percent, which ranks 49th.

China is rewriting the rules of the mobile game, and Apple is still winning
China isn’t the absolute kingmaker of the mobile world just yet, but its influence is already enormous, with many believing it to be of preeminent importance. "There is no doubt China is the most important market to be successful in, way more so than the US," says Forrester Research analyst Thomas Husson. "Smartphone growth is now coming from emerging countries. That's the new battleground with China and India playing a key role." The growth of those economies has sprung up a fundamentally new and different mobile industry, where established global leaders like HTC, LG, Sony, and Microsoft’s mobile division struggle to find their proper place. Apple, on the other hand, has taken a comfortable seat at the top of the heap and is weathering this disruption in luxurious style.
Hobnob Lets You Create Personalized Event Invites To Send By Text
There are a number of services today that allow you to create and send digital invitations to birthdays, parties and other events, where the invites themselves are sent out via email, social networks, or even by postal mail if you choose. But a new application called Hobnob , launching now, is designed instead to support invite delivery entirely via SMS and MMS. This means recipients will receive the invites immediately, the company says, and organizers in return will get prompt RSVPs.
THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem

From there we take a look at how consumers' move to mobile devices is changing the way we pay, and which players stand to benefit.
Protecting Users’ Location Data From An Unconstitutional Search
Location data is highly sensitive. It contains information about where we live, our daily habits and our network of friends. We discover new places to go; avoid traffic on the way there; swipe to meet new friends once we’ve arrived; and even turn up the thermostat before we get home. When data knows this much about us it requires careful protection.
See Sansa Stark as a psychic mutant in X-Men: Apocalypse
It's been reported that the new movie, which follows X-Men: First Class and last year's Days of Future Past , is at least partially set in 1983, and Singer looks keen to evoke the fashion of the era. The first pictures of teleporting mutant Nightcrawler appeared earlier this week , showing the blue-skinned mutant sporting a clothing combo that Michael J. Fox's Teen Wolf might wear. Condor and Turner also sport period-appropriate dress in the new snapshot, making both Jean Grey and Jubilee — in her signature yellow jacket — look like they've just stepped out from an '80s disco at Professor X's famous school for the gifted.
Antique Apple-1 sells for $236K on eBay

Deep-Learning, Image-Analysis Startup Descartes Labs Raises $3.3M After Spinning Out Of Los Alamos National Lab
Descartes Labs was incubated in Los Alamos National Lab for seven years before spinning out. But spinning a company out of a government-funded laboratory isn’t necessarily an easy feat. There’s plenty of negotiations that can drag on, and sometimes, the people running those startups are used to being well-funded and don’t know how to run a startup, Eric Chin at Crosslink Capital — an investor in Descartes Labs — said.
Rediscovering The Lost Role Models For Girls Who Want To Be Scientists
Sally Ride turned her father into an advocate for the cause. After coming across an advertisement featuring a boy daydreaming about the day he would go up into space, Ride’s father wrote a strongly worded letter to the advertiser pointing out an inherent bias in educating children that should be corrected. "As a parent of the first US woman astronaut, I know first hand that girls also aspire to math and science and we should encourage her to ‘get America’s future off the ground.’ " In early 2014, a seven-year-old named Charlotte wrote an open letter to Lego. "I went to a store and saw Legos in two sections, the pink [girls] and the blue [boys]. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks. I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!"

AWS and Sustainable Energy
AWS works relentlessly to reduce the amount of energy consumed by our global infrastructure. With more than a million active customers leveraging AWS around the clock in every imaginable capacity, AWS utilization rates are several times higher than are typical of an on-premises datacenter. Simultaneously, AWS is focused on increasing the sources of renewable energy powering our infrastructure. AWS operates at a massive scale and has invested in significant hardware, software and operational efficiencies that drive several times improvement in server utilization levels as compared to the average corporate datacenter. AWS Infrastructure uses rack-optimized systems that use less than 1/8th the energy of the blade server enclosures that are often used in corporate datacenters. Because AWS pools resources, customers who deploy applications in the cloud reduce their carbon footprint by default and significantly reduce the amount of environmental waste that occurs when individual datacenters operate well below constructed capacity.
The 5 Building Blocks of Visual Hierarchy in Web Design
Knowing how to use each of these building blocks is a standard requirement for a web designer, but know when to use which – and even better, how to use them together – is what creates a mastery of the skill. Every element in your interface will intermingle and vie for visual dominance. Even if your design is pixel-perfect, each user will bring with them an element of unpredictability (for example, User A might have a preference for the color green…).
10 Ways To Make The Most Of Your First Month At A New Job
Remember to check in and talk to trusted friends and former coworkers who know you and your many talents well. They can remind you of your talents and strengths when you’re feeling down, and be a support group for you when "imposter syndrome" inevitably strikes. Because they know you well, they can help cut through your perceived struggles and identify the real challenges you’re facing, or throw down some much-needed real talk about why you do deserve to be at your job, no matter how far off that feels to you in the beginning months. They are the support group that can give you the credit you may be robbing yourself of.

Johan F. Hartle , whose work focuses on the problematic visibility of the proletariat — an absent people, a people to come — in Red Vienna, has referred to the SDAP’s method as a “propaganda of construction,” in which newly erected buildings not only advertised and demonstrated an ideological program, but also addressed social needs and were intended to shift conditions on the ground in preparation for future socialist development. The inscriptions vividly capture this attempt to turn Vienna from a collapsed imperial capital into a socialist city.
Instagram releases three new filters for iOS and Android
Some good news for Instagram fans: three new photo filters are arriving today, and Instagram plans to keep adding more in the near future. The app has gone for long periods of time without adding new filters — in December, it added five new ones after a two-year break — but we apparently won't be seeing extended gaps like that any longer. Instagram intends to add new filters "more regularly going forward," which should be music to the ears of its users who don't like having to outsource their filtering to other apps.
Everything you need to know about porting Android and iOS apps to Windows 10
While in its documentation Microsoft describes that Project Astoria is meant for building apps for Windows 10 phones, as shown in the table above, your app can technically work on ARM-based Windows 10 phones and small tablets. Windows 10 on these devices includes an Android subsystem, which naturally doesn’t work on non-ARM Windows 10 devices. That also means x86 Windows 10 tablets or phones, for example, won’t be able to run these apps.

Apple and Samsung Are Friendly Again, and the Competition Should Be Terrified
Samsung will manufacture the main chip for the next iPhone, as well as displays for other Apple products, and it is budgeting $14 billion for new plants and equipment that are expected to accommodate, among other things, its big new client. From this alliance, Apple gets access to one of the biggest, most sophisticated chip manufacturing operations in the world to help it continue outselling the competition. Samsung gets crucial new orders for its core chipmaking group to make up for stagnating profit in mobile phones. Just about all other companies in the industry will suffer, starting with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and SanDisk.
