Alice can make her quantum system interact with an entangled system – let’s call it Carrie – whose properties she does know. She has one Carrie particle, and Bob has its twin. When her Carrie particle interacts with her unknown quantum system, information about her mystery system is transferred over to Carrie. Because her Carrie twin is entangled with Bob’s, he now has access to that information and he can use it to reconstruct Alice’s unknown particle. Alice’s original is, of course, destroyed in the process.

The Lee family holds only a minority share in the company, but maintains control through a maze of cross-shareholdings in the 59-odd companies that make up the group.
“If somebody else were to do the same thing, but do it in a slightly different way,” he says, “I don’t know that I would link to it, because maybe some of the novelty has worn off.”
She’s obviously a very smart kid, and that’s great. But how many kids that age decide to take the MCP exam on their own? And how many families who claim never to force their kids to study put up websites crowing about their kids’ achievements the way this kid’s family has? Could they repeat the words “child prodigy” a little more often, maybe? Seriously, whether she’s 8 or 9, no matter where she comes from, she deserves to be able to be a kid without too much pressure from her family and, possibly, her government.
-How did the first presidential debate impact voters? We find out tonight at 6 p.m. ET when the post-debate Fox polls are released!
“The best marketing tool is always going to be word-of-mouth, and social media really lends itself to that,” says Delaney Simmons, social media director for WNYC. “What if you could suggest a podcast to a friend over Facebook, like you would with a meme or a photo?”
But although that many-eyed instrument exists, the team isn’t actually using it yet. In their Green Bank observations, Breakthrough tries to do the job two telescopes would using a technique called nodding. “We point the telescope at some star, and then we move away from that star maybe five minutes later to a different star, and then we move back to Star A and back to B, A, B,” says Werthimer. “What we expect is that ET would only be at A. We would find the same signal all three times at A and never at B on the sky.”
Given the available data on animal cloning, Wicker agrees with most scientists that cloning a human being is risky and experimental.
A couple years ago he created Q-BA-MAZE, a building block set with holes and channels that can direct a ball bearing throughout the block structure. Now the toy is stocked at retailers around the country and has been featured on Gizmodo and ID Magazine’s New and Notable ’07 issue. And just to show excited people are getting, the Walker Art Center recently commissioned Comfort to create a gigantic Q-BA-MAZE fish slash marble run for their atrium.
Indeed. Several newspapers and TV news shows reported that the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley of TV and video fame, would be attending the local university. About 30 different versions of the story were generated, involving the University of Dayton, Miami University, the University of Cincinnati and Penn State, among others.
HP and other large companies are “struggling to compete against younger upstarts,” says long-time Silicon Valley observer Paul Saffo. “Once upon a time, scale and size were a competitive advantage. Now, they are a problem.”
But until these two solutions become ubiquitous, the best option is to pay attention and erase data. Delete old e-mails from your BlackBerry, SMSs from your cell phone and old data from your address books – regularly. Find that call log and purge it once in a while. Don’t store everything on your laptop, only the files you might actually need.
From the planning side, collecting peoples’ contact info can be a pain, sure. But that’s a one-time bother. From there, use Paperless Post for beautiful and functional email invites and RSVP tracking. And for more rote calendar-coordination, use Doodle to find the best day for a dinner or meeting that works for everyone. The site lets each guest respond with a time that works for them, so you can easily figure out how best to accommodate everyone’s schedule.
SAN FRANCISCO – Yahoo’s first-quarter profit more than doubled, propelled by advertisers eager to have their products promoted on the Internet’s most popular destination.
With those data sets built into their guessing algorithm, they found that Amazon users’ four-word phrases have only 30 bits of entropy—in other words, two to the 30th power possibilities. Bonneau estimates that a passphrase needs at least 70 or 80 bits of entropy to be considered secure—In other words, to withstand Snowden’s trillion-guesses-a-second standard for years or decades rather than seconds or days.
As of June, Snapchat has 150 million daily active users, compared to 140 million on Twitter. And while Twitter’s user growth has been flat for years, Snapchat continues to gain momentum and is showing no signs of slowing down. More important, its users are five times more engaged, according to BI Intelligence. The company says it reaches 41% of 18 to 34 year-olds in the U.S. daily (clearly the attraction for the Trump campaign) and its users view 10 billion videos a day, more than twice that of YouTube.
The national security law Santa Clara County used to try to thwart access to its GIS database is an Exemption 3 statute designed to protect “critical infrastructure information” from disclosure. But perhaps the most egregious Exemption 3 abuse came last year, after a federal appeals court ordered the Department of Agriculture to comply with a FOIA request filed by a farm news publisher.
Take a lowercase “b,” for instance. They way Castledown teaches it, proper form dictates that the pen starts at the baseline and drags all the way up before retracing that line back down. Only then can you loop around to create the letter’s circle. This motion creates natural points of tension, where the line would be thicker. “We wanted to show where the pen would land naturally,” Sheret says. In this case, near the bottom of the “b” where the bowl meets the stem. “We didn’t make these points overpowering or really obvious,” he continues. “The form could have been created by a pen or pencil.”
Providing false information to commit a crime is fraudulent and deceptive, and evidence of premeditation and probably conspiracy. If the current laws aren’t abided, why worry about new laws?
Continuing with our Vista Month theme, we recently came across the excellent Vista for Beginners website, which is chock full of advice, tutorials, tips and tricks for those migrating to Windows Vista.
WikiLeaks and its people haven’t been charged with a crime for publishing U.S. leaks, and they’d have a strong First Amendment defense if they were. And despite concerns voiced from top officials, there has yet to be a documented instance of anyone coming to harm as a result of WikiLeaks’ releases. With news and media organizations (including Wired magazine) betting heavily on iPad apps as a way to get users to pay to read magazines and newspapers, it’s chilling to see Apple double down on its right to censor controversial, but lawfully published, content of indisputable news value.
The paradox, he says, is that even though demand for coffee, especially premium coffee, has risen over the last decade, and the price U.S. consumers are willing to pay along with it, farmers are still getting out of the business at an alarming rate. But Jones believes he has a solution. He wants to put more money in farmers’ pockets by purging the coffee supply chain of what he describes as needless networks of middlemen who stand between growers and consumers.
Best of all, the corn-field QR code actually works, as verified by the Kraays using a helicopter.
Andrew Ng is a soft-spoken AI researcher whose online postings talk loudly.
Then came ROAM, a mapping product that’s helping the bureau predict where people are least likely to respond to the census using historical and demographic data. With this information, the bureau can target specific community groups, like churches and other organizations, to help spread the word. Both BARCA and ROAM were developed internally at the Bureau.
Nevertheless, politicians will find it hard to ignore the sheer magnitude of Chandler’s financial success.
