It said its corporate network was not compromised.The company’s chief financial officer, George Davis, had earlier told The Financial Times that Intel published its earnings ahead of the stock market’s close on Thursday because it believed a hacker stole financially sensitive information from the site.The company’s quarterly results were originally scheduled to be published hours later a...
Bacteria have internal clocks just like animals and plants, scientists say

Bacteria have internal clocks just like animals and plants, scientists say

Science
Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Biological clocks aren't exclusive to multicellular organisms -- new research suggests bacteria can tell time, too. Internal clocks, or circadian rhythms, help humans, animals and plants keep time, synching various biological processes with day-night changes, as well as seasonal shifts. Advertisement In humans and other animals, the biological clocks ticking inside cells help govern sleep cycles and dictate a variety of cognitive functions. In plants, circadian rhythms control water retention and photosynthesis. Scientists have previously observed circadian rhythms in photosynthetic bacteria, but never before in free-living, non-photosynthetic bacteria -- until now. As reported Friday in the journal Science Advances, researchers identified active circadian rhythms in Baci...

Internal messages reveal Boeing worker wouldn’t let his family on 737 MAX

Business
The Boeing 737 MAX was mocked by an employee as being "designed by clowns" more than a year before the first of two fatal air crashes, it has emerged.The disparaging comment was contained in hundreds of internal messages released by Boeing, which also revealed attempts by staff to dodge regulatory scrutiny of the development of the aircraft. In another exchange, an employee told a colleague he would not let his family fly on a 737 Max. Image: The Ethiopian Airlines crash in March 2019 came just five months after the Lion Air disaster in October 2018 The aircraft has been grounded since last March after an Ethiopian Airlines plane came down outside Addis Ababa, just five months after a similar Lion Air crash in Indonesia.The two disast...
Neuroscientists build model to identify internal brain states

Neuroscientists build model to identify internal brain states

Science
Nov. 25 (UPI) -- How humans respond to stimuli depends on not only external factors, but internal variables like mood and memory, as well. These internal brain states are invisible to the outside observer, but neuroscientists have developed a new model to predict internal brain states based on observations of outward behavior. For now, the model only works to predict the internal states of fruit flies, but it could eventually be used to better understand the relationship between human brain states and behavior. During a previous study, scientists were able to predict a portion of a male fruit fly's singing behavior by observing the insect's behavior. With the help of the new model, scientists can more accurately predict the fruit fly's seduction methods. "By estimating the fly's interna...
RBI to strengthen banks' internal ombudsman: Can you hope for faster grievance redressal?

RBI to strengthen banks' internal ombudsman: Can you hope for faster grievance redressal?

Finance
Going forward, bank customers can hope to get quicker arbitration from the Internal Ombudsman (IO) set up by the bank as the RBI plans to strengthen these ombudsmen and also make them more independent. In the Statement on Developmental and Regulatory Policies issued on August 1, 2018, RBI stated that it has been decided to enhance the independence of the IO while simultaneously strengthening the monitoring system over functioning of the IO mechanism. The revised instructions in this regard will be issued by the end of September 2018. Customer complaints in the banking system are increasing. Even though the banks have their own grievance redressal system in place including an Internal Ombudsman (IO), the customers often feel that their complaints remain largely unresolved and then have to ...
