Tesla Is Years Away From Its Goal of Reaching Apple

first_img Enroll Now for Free How far does electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc have to go to reach its goal of matching Apple Inc’s current market value? It would take 26 years, based on rough calculations by Reuters, unless it starts selling a lot more cars.Tesla CEO Elon Musk surprised analysts on the company’s earnings call on Wednesday by saying that his company could be worth $700 billion by 2025. That is roughly the same size as Apple Inc, the most valuable company in the Standard and Poor’s 500 index, is worth now.Investors were quick to point out that reaching that goal would require a jump of 2,700 percent in the value of Tesla’s shares, given its market value of $26.6 billion.Actually, at its current annual production rate of 55,000 cars a year, the company would have to sell every car until 2040 to get to that market cap.More likely, Musk expects the production rate to expand, but the question is by how much? Today, every Tesla car represents $463,636 in market cap. Assuming that ratio remains unchanged, it would take sales of 1.45 million cars every year to justify a $700 billion figure and the same investor faith in future growth.By Musk’s 2025 target date, everyone who currently bought a Tesla would have to convince 26 of his best friends and relatives to buy one as well.Toyota Motor Corp, by comparison, sold 10.2 million cars worldwide last year. Each vehicle sold represented approximately $21,681 in market value for the $221.1 billion company.Michael Mullaney, chief investment officer at Boston-based Fiduciary Trust Co, said that the company’s rich valuation is the main reason he doesn’t own shares.”It probably is the next generation of cars, but it is ridiculous when you consider what you’re paying for as far as future growth prospects,” he said.Tesla faces stiff competition from high-end car makers such as BMW and Audi, who will eventually roll out their own electric cars that are comparable to Tesla’s, he said. Apple, by comparison, has an easier path with selling $200 iPhones.Tesla did not respond to a request for comment on this story.Shares of the company, which did not post a profit last quarter, fell 5.6 percent in midday trading Thursday, and are down 23 percent over the last six months.(additional reporting by Ryan Vlastelica; editing by Linda Stern and David Gregorio) 2 min read This story originally appeared on Reuters February 13, 2015 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

How This Man Beat the System and Won 1000 Twitter Contests

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now You’ve probably seen “retweet to win” contests on Twitter, and maybe even won a t-shirt, concert tickets or marshmallows. But computer engineer Hunter Scott completely automated the idea and created a bot that entered every Twitter contest it could find — 165,000 in total. As a result, he claims to have won four contests a day for nine months, for a total haul of over a thousand prizes. A lot of that swag was terrible, and a lot of it he couldn’t accept. But the interesting part was how he allegedly managed to beat Twitter’s system.Scott said that “the most difficult part of this project was preventing the bot from getting banned by Twitter.” The social network has limits in place to stop such activities: unless you have a high follower count, you can only follow up to 2,000 people yourself, for instance. At the same time, you can’t follow and unfollow users too rapidly or retweet too often. Luckily, Scott’s Python script was able to balance all that and follow every single contest it found.He said his win rate was “pretty miserable” considering the low quality of the prizes. He couldn’t claim the best one, a $4,000 trip to New York’s fashion week because of taxes and fact that he didn’t live near New York. Nevertheless, he was fond of a few them, especially a cowboy hat autographed by actors in a Mexican soap opera. “It really embodies the totally random outcome of these contests,” he said. Scott never revealed the name of his Twitter bot, so we’ve reached out to verify his claims — but the prizes appear to check out.

Microsoft Has Its Own Venture Capitalism Division

first_img 2 min read May 31, 2016 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This story originally appeared on Engadget Enroll Now for Free Microsoft has started its own venture capital division. The new group is called Microsoft Ventures, and it will focus on early-stage startup investments. Confusingly, Microsoft Ventures was already the name of a startup accelerator initiative at Microsoft, and that group is being rebranded as “Microsoft Accelerator” — one of the problems with having a massive, 41-year-old company is running out of names, apparently.In an article announcing the change, Nagraj Kashyap, the corporate vice president of the new Microsoft Ventures, says that while the company has done a lot of investment in the past, it’s not been focused on early stage, instead investing alongside commercial deals. The new division will be more like Google Ventures, which takes risks on young companies for a potentially huge return.One company that Microsoft invested in early was Facebook, which it pumped $250 million into back in 2007. But that was an investment in preferred stock at a $15 billion valuation, and more about ad sales than venture capitalism.The new division will have an initial presence in San Francisco, Seattle, New York City, and Tel Aviv, Israel. “…We were not a part of the early industry conversations on disruptive technology trends,” said Kashyap, but “with a formalized venture fund, Microsoft now has a seat at the table.” Expect to see Microsoft to invest in more companies at a nascent stage, especially those focused on those that complement the company’s existing products and services, and those focused on machine learning and security.While the announcement talks a good talk, it’s not clear how much this is a rebrand and reorganization vs. a real effort to step up investment. Kashyap said that the division is “not aiming to hit a specific number of investments annually,” but “in the coming days and weeks ahead and beyond, you will see us showing up as an investor in companies that complement these spaces and those that aim to disrupt how business is done today.”last_img read more

California Lawmakers Just Made It Harder for Companies to Sell Your Data

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. How Success Happens The ruling is in: The Golden State will adopt the California Consumer Privacy Act. The law will give residents the right to know what kind of data companies have collected of theirs and to be able to tell said firms to not sell it.As The Washington Post reports, the passage will give users the ability to opt out of having their data sold, and that services and firms won’t be able to charge a fee or give them inferior service as a result. It also will result in the state’s attorney general having the ability to levy fines against outfits that don’t secure user information against hackers.#AB375 passes off the Assembly Floor with bipartisan support and is headed to the @JerryBrownGov for his signature. #CaCPA2018 #CaLeg #Privacy pic.twitter.com/Z6G7EUGuH7— Ed Chau (@AsmEdChau) June 28, 2018Much like we saw with the GDPR ruling in March, this passage could impact users on a global scale. As you can imagine, there are a lot of eyes on this bit of legislation. Now that it has passed, there’s a six-month period for the collective tech industry (under the auspice of the Internet Association) to try and make changes to the bill before it becomes law next Jan. 1.However, the passage of this means an even more stringent version of a bill won’t appear on the November ballot. That one, led by real estate developer Alastair Mactaggart, would grant local citizens to sue companies “in almost any case” where their data had been breached. It was seen as a step too far.The Internet Association admitted that while the bill that was passed today had “many problematic provisions,” according to WaPo, its members wouldn’t obstruct or block the bill from moving forward. That’s because it meant Mactaggart’s wouldn’t appear on the ballot.Last month, it was discovered that Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Uber pledged money to fight the law. AT&T, Facebook, Google and Engadget parent company Verizon all plunked down $200,000 each for the fund, while Amazon and Microsoft contributed $195,000 each.Uber ponied up a paltry $50,000. In February, the ride-hailing service paid out $245 million to Waymo over stolen trade secrets. Eventually, Facebook and Verizon withdrew their support. The former, after CEO Mark Zuckerberg went to Congress to testify about the Cambridge Analytica scandal.The tech companies claimed that the bill would make it impossible to do business and “innovate on behalf of our customers.” This story originally appeared on Engadget June 29, 2018 3 min read Listen Nowlast_img read more

How to use the Windows shutdown command

first_imgHow to use the Windows shutdown command by Martin Brinkmann on May 22, 2017 in Windows – 8 commentsMost Windows users shut down the PC either through the start menu, Alt-F4 menu, or by pressing the power button on the device.The shutdown command provides you with options to change a Windows computer’s power state. It enables you to shut down, restart, hibernate the computer, log off a user, and customize the shut down experience. The command supports local and remote shutdowns on top of that, and you may use it to stop a shutdown or restart that is in process.How to use the Windows shutdown command is the first part of a series that looks at important Windows command line programs.The Windows shutdown commandYou run shutdown from the command prompt or PowerShell interface. What you can do however is create shortcuts so that you don’t have to write the commands each time you want to use them, but can simply click on the shortcut instead to run them. This is explained later in the guide.First thing you need to do is open a command prompt window:Tap on the Windows-key, type cmd.exe, and hit the Enter-key on the keyboard.The following major commands are providedshutdown /a — This command stops a shut down or reboot process. Can be useful if Windows Update decided that it is time to reboot the PC, or if your actions or other programs started the process.shutdown /s — The shutdown command. This shuts down the computer when you run it.shutdown /r — Shuts down the computer, and restarts it afterwards.shutdown /g — Like shutdown /r, but will restart any registered program when the system has loaded.shutdown /h — Hibernates the local computer.shutdown /l — Logs off the current user.shutdown /p — Turns the computer off without prior warnings. Equals running shutdown /s /f /t 0The following additional commands are supportedThe shutdown /i GUI/e — This enables documentation for the shutdown of the computer./i — Show the graphics user interface. Must be the first option of the command, and all other switches are ignored (as the graphical user interface is loaded)./hybrid — Shuts the computer down, and enables Fast Startup. Must be used with /s/t 0 — Sets the timeout period before the shutdown. The default is 30 seconds, and you may speed things up by setting /t 0./f — Forces running programs to terminate without user warning.  Also /force./m \\computer — Specify a remote computer that you want to run the command on./c “remark” — Adds a comment that explains the reason for the shutdown or restart of the computer. Supports a maximum of 512 characters, and is displayed on the shutdown prompt./d — Adds a reason for the restart using a system of codes. Basically, /d p:1:2 indicates a planned shutdown because of a hardware installation, while /d u:1:2 a user defined shutdown because of a hardware installation. You can leave out p and u to set an unplanned reason for the shutdown. The table with major and minor reasons is displayed when you run shutdown /?./o — This command restarts the PC and loads the Advanced Boot Menu on the next start. Needs to be run with /rShutdown Command ExamplesThe following examples highlight some command shutdown command switches.Run a fast shutdown. This forces applications to close, and sets theshutdown /s /f /t:0Restart the computer, and add a reason for the restart. Computer will restart in 30 seconds, as t command is not specifiedshutdown /r /d u:2:1This command shuts down the remote computer ComputerXYZ after 300 seconds forcefully, adds a reason for the shutdown, and displays the comment in the shutdown prompt.shutdown /m \\ComputerXYZ /s /f /d p:1:2 /c “Computer will restart for maintenance, save your work” /t 300Creating shutdown shortcutsWhile you can run shutdown from the command prompt whenever the need arises, you may also create shortcuts or batch files so that you can run them with a double-click directly without having to open the command prompt or remembering the commands.Option 1: Batch FilesThe first option that you have is to create a batch file.Right-click on the desktop or another location in Explorer, and select New > Text Document.Write or paste the shutdown command or commands that you want to execute using it, e.g. shutdown /s /f /t:0Save the document.Rename it to fastshutdown.bat (choose a different name depending on the purpose). Make sure the extension is .bat, and not .bat.txt.Double-click on the file to test it. Make sure you save all your work before you do so to avoid any issues in this regard.You can add multiple shutdown commands, for instance for several remote machines. Make sure each new command starts on a new line.Option 1: ShortcutsShortcuts work pretty much like batch files, but they are limited to a single command.Right-click on the desktop or another location in Explorer, and select New > Shortcut.Type or paste the command in the field on the “what item would you like to create a shortcut for” page. Click next.Name the shortcut afterwards, and click finish.Shutdown Programs for WindowsYou may run programs designed specifically to shut down Windows PCs. Most are quite old, but work just fine. Please note that some antivirus solutions may flag those because of what they do.Superfast Shutdown — Long standing program, shuts down the Windows PC in record time.Shutdown Scheduler — Lets you schedule the shutdown of a Windows computerAbsolute Shutdown — Designed to make shutting down Windows XP faster. May work on other versions of Windows as well.WinOFF — Program designed for scheduling the shutdown of Windows computers.Additional resourcesAnalyze the boot and shutdown performance of WindowsMicrosoft Technet shutdownSummaryArticle NameHow to use the Windows shutdown commandDescriptionA comprehensive guide of the shutdown command of the Windows operating system.

Firefox 68 addon release notes in addons manager

first_imgFirefox 68: add-on release notes in add-ons manager by Martin Brinkmann on June 11, 2019 in Firefox – Last Update: June 11, 2019 – 21 commentsThe Firefox Add-ons Manager will soon display the release notes of updated extensions directly in the web browser.Mozilla plans to release the new feature in Firefox 68 which is scheduled for a July 9, 2019 release.Firefox supports browser extensions; users may install add-ons in the browser to extend functionality of the browser or sites visited in the browser.Add-ons are updated automatically by default whenever a new version is released by the developer or publisher. Firefox users who want more control over the update process may change the default behavior to turn automatic updates off.Current versions of Firefox, those prior to version 68, don’t reveal update information when you select Extensions. Updates are highlighted under Available Updates in the Add-ons Manager but only until the update is installed.The only option after installation was to visit the extension’s profile page on the Mozilla Add-ons repository, or to look the information up on the developer’s site if they were provided there.The profile page on Mozilla AMO lists the release notes of the latest version of an add-on. It is possible to click on “see all versions” on the page to display release notes for previous releases.Starting with Firefox 68, release notes are also a part of the Extensions listing of the Firefox web browser. Apart from that change, the latest release notes are listed there so that it is possible to go through them after the fact.All you need to do is open about:addons in the Firefox web browser, click on one of the installed browser extensions, and switch to the Release Notes tab.Note that you can also click on the menu icon (the three dots) next to any extension and select “more options” to open the details page of the installed extension.Release Notes are pulled from Mozilla’s AMO website when they are opened in the browser; it may take a moment to display them because of that. Implementing an option to integrate release notes with releases so that they don’t need to be fetched separately would be a welcome improvement.The release notes depend on the content that the developer of the extension or its publisher add to the release notes snipped on Mozilla AMO. Some developers provide extensive information, others barely any information at all.Closing WordsThe option to display release notes directly in the Firefox Add-ons Manager is a welcome step in the right direction. I’d like to see an option get these displayed during add-on updates as well to get even more control over the updating process.Mozilla could implement these optionally and keep the automatic process the default in coming versions of Firefox.Now You: What is your take on the change? Anything you’d like to see added to it?SummaryArticle NameFirefox 68: add-on release notes in add-ons managerDescriptionThe Firefox Add-ons Manager will soon display the release notes of updated extensions directly in the web browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Tesla to help build onsite charging stations for its first Semi

first_imgTesla confirmed to Reuters that it’s in discussions with larger clients regarding construction of charging infrastructure for the vehicles, and pilot client Loblaws also said it’s hoping to use solar energy, and is also looking at other potential partners beyond Tesla to make charging facilities work.The Tesla Semi, unveiled last year, will have a max range of as many as 500 miles, per the company, and starts at $150,000 for a lower-range version. The automaker is hoping to have the first of these vehicles operating on roads by sometime next year. Tesla is going to be working with its first pilot customers for its all-electric Semi truck to build charging stations at their shipping facilities, Reuters reports. We know relatively little about how Tesla will be piloting its truck thus far, but this new info sheds some light on the charging component of the puzzle.Tesla will be working with Anheuser-Busch, Pepsi and UPS at least to build out these origin point chargers, the report claims, and then the initial routes which the Semis will run will be short enough that the trucks can go out and back again on a single charge. Pepsi told Reuters that it’ll look into potentially partnering with other companies using Tesla trucks to create combined charging facilities.The trucks, which obviously have far greater battery capacity than Tesla’s consumer vehicles, would require charging stations that can deliver more power, more quickly, and Musk has previously suggested Tesla might build a network of so-called “mega-chargers” that gather power using solar panels, and that can deliver a full charge to a Semi in as little as 30 minutes using high-capacity power delivery.last_img read more

First Video of DNA Organization Settles Scientific Debate

first_imgA condensin protein complex creates a loop in DNA. (Credit: Cees Dekker Lab TU Delft/Scixel)For all its precise helical structure, the DNA inside our cells is a mess.When a cell isn’t preparing for the process of splitting itself in two, our DNA lies in a massive tangle inside the cell nucleus; a strand more than six feet in length jumbled like an earbud cord. But when it comes time to undergo cellular division, this disorderly strand must be packaged neatly into chromosomes to be passed onto daughter cells — stuffed into a space much tighter than before.Around and AroundTo accomplish the task, a protein complex known as condensin grabs onto a strand of DNA and passes it through a ring-like structure to coil it into orderly loops perfect for packaging — a process that researchers have caught on camera for the first time. A team of researchers from Germany and the Netherlands was able to stain the proteins responsible so they could be viewed in action under a microscope and fix the DNA in place in order to watch the process happen in real time. The feat settles a debate about how condensin works and could provide insights into hereditable diseases and some forms of cancer.[embedded content]That condensin is responsible for looping DNA has been suggested for years now — the idea, in fact, seems to have come to one researcher as he handled ropes and climbing equipment during a mountaineering expedition — but researchers weren’t quite sure if that theory or another was accurate. Either condensin looped DNA, or it relied on hook-like structures to tie it together. The video, part of research published Thursday in Science, makes clear that the former mechanism is the right one.After staining the condensin with a fluorescent protein and pinning down a strand of DNA in the lab, the researchers introduced a slight current that would stretch any resulting loops out clearly. After that, all they had to do was bring it into focus with a microscope. The resulting footage shows condensin drawing in a strand of DNA and spooling it out in a clear loop.[embedded content]And the protein complex is good at its job, too. Opponents of the looping theory had suggested that such a mechanism would suck up too much energy, in the form of ATP, for it to work. The researchers newest work indicates that condensin is actually quite efficient, likely because it reels DNA in many base pairs at a time, as opposed to one by one. It’s fast, too, operating at a relatively high rate of around 1,500 base pairs per second. Intriguingly, they also observed that condensin only pulls on one of the two sides of the loop it is gathered, something they still can’t explain.The findings aren’t only visual evidence of a crucial cellular process, they could also help elucidate the causes of certain genetic diseases related to the protein family condensin belongs to, called SMC. Arranging chromosomes during cell division, something that condensin also helps with, can lead to cancer if done incorrectly. The new insights into how it operates could provide further avenues for research in that direction as well.last_img read more

PROUD Experiences returns to New York City

first_imgOver 90 international exhibiting companies and 90 buyers from 31 countries are currently attending PROUD Experiences 2019, celebrating an industry valued at US$218 billion in 2018 alone – according to consultancy firm Out Now. This year’s event takes place during the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising in NYC. PROUD Experiences will return to New York City for the second consecutive year in 2020. The announcement was made at today’s Opening Gathering of PROUD Experiences 2019 – taking place this week 18 – 20 June at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, which will again host next year’s edition.Reed Travel Exhibitions’ groundbreaking b2b travel and lifestyle event for premium and luxury travel suppliers and buyers – targeting the LGBTQ+ global community – sold out its exhibition space for this second edition more than 3 months ago. This year’s event grew by 60% from its first edition in London in June 2018; and organisers predict this number is set to rise again for the third edition in 2020. Event Director Simon Mayle commented:“If the LGBTQ+ travel market was a country, it would be the fourth biggest economy in the world, and with an increase of people identifying on the LGBTQ+ spectrum – from 8% of Baby Boomers to 31% of Centennials – along with the coming of age of Millennials, this next decade is set for strong growth again. We are looking forward to returning to New York City from 22 to 24 June 2020 and are delighted to once again be working alongside NYC & Company and 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge to deliver another fantastic event next year.”“We have been honored to collaborate with Reed Travel Exhibitions to host PROUD Experiences 2019 in New York City during such a monumental year for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company. “We are honored to again be the Host City for PROUD Experiences in 2020, and look forward to cultivating this extraordinary partnership.”Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Guam Visitors Bureau goes LGBT with IGLTA at the Annual Global Convention in TorontoMalta Tourism Authority a sponsor of Proud Experiences ConferenceFITUR GAY (LGBT) consolidates its presence at FITUR 2018More articles on eTurboNews click herelast_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software.

She spoke on the theme of diversity and how to break down the barriers between various minorities, male-female, religion, national origin, etc. She gave many photo examples of how we pigeon hole people into neat categories and that we often say we have equally in society, however her images showed recent images of big political summits where there are no women present, or they were the secretaries in the background. She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.

The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Nuclear Imaging | April 28, 2017 VIDEO: Trends in Nuclear Cardiology Imaging David Wolinsky, M.D., director of nuclear cardiology at Cleveland Clinic Florida and past-president of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), discusses advancements in nuclear imaging and some of the issues facing the subspecialty.
