Jose Guerena Evidence: Don’t Buy Your Kids the Jesús Malverde Bobblehead

How weak is the evidence tying slain Iraq war veteran Jose Guerena to the drug ring and/or home invasion gang whose existence has been asserted (though not alleged – no arrests have been made) by the Pima County, Arizona Sheriff?  The investigation that lead [sic] to the service of the search warrants on May 5 is a complicated one involving multiple people suspected of very serious crimes. Sometimes, law enforcement agencies must choose between the desire of the public to quickly know details, and the very real threat to innocent lives if those details are released prematurely. Sheriff Dupnik has made it a departmental policy to be open and forthcoming with information released to the news media. When the decision is made to withhold information, as it has been in this case, there is a legitimate reason for that decision. The day the search warrant was served, we reported to the media that Mr. Guerena fired at SWAT officers. This is what was understood at that time. After a more detailed investigation, we learned that he pointed his assault rifle at SWAT officers, however, the safety was on and he could not fire. This is a clear example of erroneous information being provided wi...

Combinatorial optimization by simulating adiabatic bifurcations in nonlinear Hamiltonian systems

Combinatorial optimization problems are ubiquitous but difficult to solve. Hardware devices for these problems have recently been developed by various approaches, including quantum computers. Inspired by recently proposed quantum adiabatic optimization using a nonlinear oscillator network, we propose a new optimization algorithm simulating adiabatic evolutions of classical nonlinear Hamiltonian systems exhibiting bifurcation phenomena, which we call simulated bifurcation (SB). SB is based on adiabatic and chaotic (ergodic) evolutions of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. SB is also suitable for parallel computing because of its simultaneous updating. Implementing SB with a field-programmable gate array, we demonstrate that the SB machine can obtain good approximate solutions of an all-to-all connected 2000-node MAX-CUT problem in 0.5 ms, which is about 10 times faster than a state-of-the-art laser-based machine called a coherent Ising machine. SB will accelerate large-scale combinatorial optimization harnessing digital computer technologies and also offer a new application of computational and mathematical physics. In social life and industry, one often encounters problems for findi...

‘Lightmatter’ Review: Coasting on Only One Bright Idea

At the start of the first-person puzzler Lightmatter, within the mined-out heart of a mountain, an arrogant scientist, Virgil, is experimenting with ways in which to efficiently turn light into an energy source. Things inevitably go wrong, and soon your blank slate of a protagonist is stranded in the depths of the mountain, trying to follow Virgil’s caustic directions in order to safely evacuate a facility overrun with killer shadows. It’s a concept that turns everyday objects, from an overhead ceiling fan to a conveyor belt, into deadly platforming challenges, as the shadows they cast must be avoided at all costs. At one point, Virgil directly compares this situation to the classic childhood game “The Floor Is Lava.” It’s a too-winking nod that calls attention to the carefully constructed nature of Lightmatter’s puzzles, which are better encountered as a naturally occurring part of a given area’s background, like the way in which a cubicle farm’s haphazard arrangement of desks and chairs damningly form a river of shadows that must somehow be forded. In such moments, the game hews closer to The Witness than Portal, in that the puzzles feel like natural extensions of the environm...

Ring announces upgraded security and solar lights at CES

Ring has taken to CES 2020 to detail its latest products, including six new security-minded accessories designed to help users feel safer at home. Alongside a new gate monitor are Alexa-enabled smart light bulbs and outdoor lighting. Its been a rather tumultuous few weeks for Ring following reports of questionable security practices, so today’s showing at CES 2020 is all the more important for Amazon’s security subsidiary. Head below for additional details. Ring is looking to beef up gated-access properties and neighborhoods with its new Access Controller Pro. Available today for $299, this wall-mounted control panel pairs with existing Ring cameras to keep an eye on deliveries, visitors, and more attempting to gain entry to your property.

Sprint is officially pulling the plug on its decaying Virgin Mobile prepaid service and will transfer

Sprint is officially pulling the plug on its decaying Virgin Mobile prepaid service and will transfer current customers to its Boost Mobile brand starting in February. The move doesn’t come as a complete surprise as Sprint has long been pulling back marketing and distribution for the brand, most recently in October severing ties with Walmart as a distribution partner. Since then Virgin Mobile could only be purchased through an online portal, as Walmart was the last remaining brick-and-mortar sales channel, following earlier decisions in 2019 to pull the brand from Best Buy stores and Meijer. These moves were noticed by Jeffrey Moore at Wave7 Research, who previously predicted that Virgin Mobile was not long for this world. Back in November he told FierceWireless that it had been 31 months since Virgin Mobile had changed its rate card and the brand’s press portal hadn’t seen an update in 19 months. “I don’t think anyone knows how severely in decline Virgin is,” Moore said at the time. “There’s been no energy put into Virgin over the last several years. Virgin is a dying lemon on the vine.” The decision to discontinue Virgin comes as Sprint and T-Mobile are in the final stretches ...

Patrick Reed: Exploring the demonization of golf’s most hated

HONOLULU, HAWAII – JANUARY 10: Patrick Reed of the United States reacts to his par on the sixth green during the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii at the Waialae Country Club on January 10, 2020 in Honolulu, Hawaii. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) Reed has transformed into one of the most polarizing figures in sports and has united golf fans far and wide into a brutally hateful collective. In the collective’s last meeting, Justin Thomas’s playoff victory over Patrick Reed at the Tournament of Champions was widely celebrated and drew one of the best Reed reactions of all time. Thomas outplaying Reed was one factor, but it’s hard not to attest to the latter’s missed putt to the powers of hatred and viewer telekinesis. All jokes aside, it’s okay to be one of these people. You’ve craved the Reed headlines one after the other ever since his days at Georgia. Golf cheating accusations. Altercations such as caddie vs. fan or Reed vs. cameraman. Ryder Cup fits. Family feuds. Reed’s been the centerpiece for a majority of golf’s most controversial headlines for the past decade. His ascent to one of golf’s most talented and hated has shown no signs of stopping. Plenty of buzz ...

Ellis Paper Box installs first KBA Duran Omega Allpro 90 Folder Gluer in North America

Canadian packaging and folding carton specialist Ellis Paper Box added a new Koenig & Bauer (KBA) Duran Omega Allpro 90 Folder Gluer – the first in North America – to its 60,000-sq.-ft. Mississauga, Ontario facility earlier this year to better serve its international pharmaceutical clients. “We’ve developed a successful reputation as one of the most valued manufacturers in the industry because we understand and respect the demanding standards required by the pharmaceutical market,” said President Dave Ellis. “Our customers are continually challenging us with unique, value-added features. We listened carefully to understand what drives their businesses, and recognized that to be truly different from our competitors, we needed to provide all these services under our own roof. We had already developed a great relationship with KBA through our purchase of their Iberica brand of die cutters last year. So when KBA purchased Duran and its Omega products, it seemed to be an ideal situation for both parties. I believe KBA will continue to be a very important partner to the Ellis Group for many years.” Omega Allpro Folder Gluers can handle a wide range of substrates, from carton board...

GLOBAL MECHANICAL TUBING MARKET- BY APPLICATIONS, TRENDS, KEY DRIVING FACTORS, OPPORTUNITIES AND FORECAST

Mechanical tubing is a hollow cylindrical vessel usually of circular cross-section used to convey flowable substances such as liquids and gases, powders, slurries, and small solid masses. It is used in machined or formed parts of automobiles, farm machinery, playground and recreational equipment, canopies and shade structures, aviation, transportation, materials handling, and household equipment. Mechanical tubing is also available in square, rectangle, oval, D-shaped, and other cross sections. It is generally made of materials such as steel, iron, aluminum, copper, and plastics. Increase in construction of new pipelines for oil & gas, water and wastewater, irrigation; replacement of aging pipelines; and infrastructure development are major factors driving the global mechanical tubing market. Rise in oil & natural gas price index and increase in oil & gas exploration activities are expected to boost the demand for seamless and welded pipes in the oil & gas industry.
