Box Jellyfish Sees and Reacts with “Human-Like Vision”

first_imgWho would expect a jellyfish to have complex eyes?  Updating what we reported previously about complex optics in the 24 eyes of the box jellyfish (see 05/15/2005), Live Science says the most complex eyes are found on the top and bottom of the cube-like “head” of the animal, “giving it an extreme fish-eye view, so it’s watching almost the entire underwater world.”  Scientists experimented with objects in a tank and found that the box jellyfish can avoid objects based on color and shape.  “Unlike normal jellyfish, which drift in the ocean current, box jellyfish are active swimmers that can rapidly make 180-degree turns and deftly dart between objects,” the article says.  There was no mention of evolution till the last line: “Because jellyfish belong to one of the first groups of animals to evolve eyes (the phylum Cnidaria), [Anders] Garm [Lund U, Sweden] said, understanding how their eyes operate will show scientists what eyes were like early in evolutionary time.”Notice that the evolution talk is always in past and future tense: someday they might figure out what might have happened before there were observers, assuming evolution before thinking.  In the present, where we can observe things, we don’t see anything evolving.  Go back and read the 05/15/2005 entry about box jellyfish superb optics – and no transitional forms among multiple groups of animals with complex optics.  For a jellyfish – one of the most primitive animals in evolutionary thinking – to have “human-like eyes” is an astonishing upset.  It’s almost like God threw in surprises here and there to falsify evolutionary notions.Suggested reading: Billions of Missing Links by Geoffrey Simmons, MD, available from ARN.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The Internet of Things (IoT): Is your future secure?

first_imgTags:#Trending We’re currently on the verge of the greatest human evolution possible. Where the shift is from Information Age to the Digital Age. Where intelligent devices can feel the presence of human and ask accordingly.This phenomenal shift is due to a person’s desire to create efficiency, specifically with everyday tasks to automate the process. Additionally, the costs that are associated with these devices is no longer prohibitive, so companies of all sizes can bring products to market.Many people laughed when in the year 2014, John Chambers mentioned, Cisco CEO mentioned “Internet of Everything” as a potential market of around $17 trillion, plus it will take over the whole market in the next 5-10 years. Two years down the lane and Chambers phenomenon came true in the form of the Internet of Things(IoT).Although the shift from the Internet of people to the Internet of Things(IoT) initiated a new breed of innovation, on the other hand, there is even a greater chance that sensitive personal data is available online for anyone to access. Whether be it our health records, or family information or even our daily activities, we are all wired up with IoT.The bad news is that with according to a survey by McKinsey cost of ineffective cyber security will rise up to $3 trillion by the year 2020. Given that the devices connected with humans will reach to 20.8 billion by the year 2020, there is a huge amount of risk associated with it.Data has an entire lifetimeThroughout the 90’s, everyone was focused on data in motion – that is communication between two parties. However, companies have realized that with the advancement of data, there is a greater chance of data breach within the companies.What we need is to consider data as for the entire lifecycle, not just when being transmitted among out devices, which becomes meaningless if the device itself is compromised.For now, data is not just for a day, or a decade, it is for a lifetime. Whatever you do or store over the internet stays there forever. Whether be it your customer data, your personal information, or even your business secrets.Considering the above, you need to make the necessary changes as per the advancement of the there comes a strong breed of hackers that can take your data and use it for their benefit.Personal does not mean secureIt is a clear deceptive assumption that machines have data that is secure over the internet. Information security has three components:Confidentiality: Here the data is restricted & protected.Integrity: It is assured that there is no compromise on data & information.Availability: Those authorized to access this information can do anything with the data.There are some major security protocols you can make to strengthen your security – encryption, firewalls, tokens, and two-factor authentication – we need to target data confidentiality, secured barriers against unauthorized access and developing effective business dashboard.But machines, have their own protocols, software, rules & exposed APIs will have exposed vulnerabilities.What will happen when the data will have these weak points and breach points that will surely compromise the security.The integrity Unfortunately, there is not even a single security expert that think that we can build IoT networks without vulnerabilities. For that, we need a new approach. We need to know how is data changing and what can we do to stop the breach.This is called the integrity issue – and it should be focused on modern security where everything relates to everything.Data integrity is a different subject. Schemes such as scalable provable data possession (SPDP), the blockchain, and Merkle hash trees, and dynamic provable data possession (DPDP) are great places to start off your research.To scale these technologies, we can make them reliable for the large networks. For this, we need to train our team how to tackle these types of issues.To wrap it all upThe Internet of things(IoT) is not a new thing anymore. With great data comes greater responsibility to encrypt that data and save it from the eyes of the hacker.Whether you’re an individual or a company that is struggling on the road to success, you need to secure your data. You need to develop strategies that can prevent you from great loss. Alisia Watson is a brand strategist at My Ultimate Success Tips and Open Sky News.

‘Champion’ Yuvraj has set an example: Tendulkar

first_imgAs Yuvraj Singh prepares to start his second innings in international cricket after his successful battle with cancer, Sachin Tendulkar says the “champion” has set a great example for not just fellow sportspersons but all those suffering from the disease.”He’s undergone those tough treatments and those tough sessions and he’s back in the Indian cricket team. So he’s set a great example not only for the sportsman to follow but for a common man suffering from cancer. I think he’s set a great example,” Tendulkar said.Calling him a champion, Tendulkar remembered Yuvraj’s heroics in the 2011 World Cup.”To me he’s a champion,  once a champion will always be a champion. I was really happy that he got the Man of the Series, Man of the tournament in the World Cup and then yes, he had health problems”, Tendulkar told a new channel.”And then again, as I said he’s a champion and he proved it and he’s addressed those issues with the help of the doctors and every possible thing which a cancer patient should do he’s done,” he said.The veteran batsman was impressed with the India colts’ triumph in the Under-19 World Cup recently, and picked captain Unmukt Chand for special praise.”Yeah, I mean to be honest, I haven’t seen much of him (Unmukt). But whatever I have seen I’ve really liked. I got to spend some time with the U-19 team before they left for the World Cup. It was a fantastic experience to share my thoughts with the team and also to watch them play fabulous cricket.advertisement”They really played well. They played well as a team. In fact, when the Hyderabad Test was on while getting ready in my room I used to switch on the television to watch the game and that would continue till we reached the dressing room.
