Chemist says Kim had 1.4 times lethal dosage of VX on face

Chemist says Kim had 1.4 times lethal dosage of VX on face

World
The estranged half brother of North Korea's leader had about 1.4 times the lethal dosage of VX nerve agent on his face after he was attacked at a Malaysian airport, a government chemist testified Tuesday. VX was found on Kim Jong Nam's face, in his eye and in his blood plasma, Raja Subramaniam, who heads the Center of Chemical Weapons Analysis laboratory, said at the murder trial of two women accused of smearing the chemical weapon on Kim in the brazen assassination in February. VX and related products were also detected on the clothes the women were wearing on the day of the attack. On Monday the trial moved temporarily to a high-security laboratory so the judge, attorneys and the defendants could examine the clothing before it was officially accepted as evidence. Resuming his testimony ...
IPhone X to use 'black box' anti-spoof Face ID tech

IPhone X to use 'black box' anti-spoof Face ID tech

Technology
Even Apple will not be able to explain how its forthcoming iPhone X can spot some efforts to fool its facial recognition system.The firm has released a guide to the Face ID system, which explains that it relies on two types of neural networks - one of which has been specifically trained to resist spoofing attempts. But a consequence of the design is that it behaves like a "black box".Its behaviour can be observed but the underlying processes remain opaque.So, while Apple says Face ID should be able to distinguish between a real person's face and someone else wearing a mask that matches the geometry of their features, it will sometimes be impossible to determine what clues were picked up on.Face ID is far from being the first facial recognition system to be built into a mobile device. But p...

Boxers, MMA fighters may face long-term harm to brain: study

Health
THURSDAY, July 13, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- There's been a great deal of attention paid lately to the potential lasting damage of head blows suffered by professional football players. But what about other sports where repeated trauma to the head is also common?Do those sports lead to any long-term brain damage?Possibly, suggests a new study that found boxers and mixed martial arts fighters have higher levels of certain brain proteins that reflect brain injury compared to retired fighters and non-fighters.The research is preliminary, but if it bears out, the analysis might be a way to predict which fighters are at the greatest risk of long-term complications, said study author Dr. Charles Bernick. He's the associate director of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Ve...
