When prosecutors moved in February of this year to nullify Manafort’s cooperation agreement with them—because he violated the deal by lying about his contacts with Kostya—a lead prosecutor told Judge Jackson that Manafort’s lies went “very much to the heart of what the special counsel’s office is investigating.” In particular, the government asserted, Manafort had shared Trump polling data with Kostya, leaving many to wonder and speculate about why he might have done such a thing.

For Vikaas Sohal, a neuroscientist at UC San Francisco, who was not involved in the work, the discovery of these cells might help the field move away from conflicts about gamma rhythms. If they really are clock-like cells, he says, then signs of their timekeeping should show up in the rhythm of the local field potential.
Huawei's Richard Yu talked up HarmonyOS' wide-ranging potential at the company's recent developer conference in Dongguan, China. While there’s no reason to doubt that Huawei can put HarmonyOS on a smartphone—Chinese media says it’s already in the works—the mere presence of an operating system doesn’t make a device usable, any more than the presence of a big tent guarantees a circus performance.
Povolny says that with the Avaya desk phones, it took only basic hacking skills to gain access to the device's systems and firmware (the foundational code that coordinates a device's hardware and software) and analyze them for flaws.
An attacker could potentially pivot, Santamarta says, from the in-flight entertainment system to the CIS/MS to send commands to far more sensitive components that control the plane's safety-critical systems, including its engine, brakes, and sensors.
"Our main goal is to get a sense of the temperature of the industry, which spans from hobbyists and students to professionals working on big-budget projects," says Alex Wawro, an editor at XRDC and Gamasutra who has been involved with the annual survey since it began in 2016.While the pool of respondents is larger this year than ever before, the status quo remains unchanged in some ways.

It would offer funding for electric vehicle charging stations, pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly street design , reducing diesel emissions in ports, infrastructure resilient to floods and heat waves , and more.
Two stickers with fibers running lengthwise constrain the balloon to make it turn as it inflates (such an actuator could also use hydraulics instead of air, by the way), while a third sticker with fibers running at a 45 degree angle make the balloon twist at the end.
In her new Netflix special, comedian Whitney Cummings shares the stage with an ultra-modern version of one of the most outdated comedy props imaginable, the ventriloquist dummy: a laughing, talking sex robot that looks just like her.
