Its prime time today Another mathematical oddity

first_imgAre you feeling it?Something… special in the air?Turns out July 26, 2011 is another standout date in the numbers-obsessed world of Inan Aziz, University of Portland electrical engineering professor, who gets mighty fired up about these things.Ignore our lackluster, gray July morning (sigh). Forget, for a moment, the numbing spin of digits on the national debt clock and such.Nope, this particular Tuesday is actually one prime, prime… and prime, day.We’ll let Aziz spell it out:“…The single full date of July 26, 2011 is extremely rare since 7262011 = 191 x 193 x 197, i.e., the product of three consecutive prime numbers! There are only 2 such dates in this (3rd) millennium and both happen to be in this (21st) century!”OK. Feel better now?Of course, Prof. Aziz has much more to say. Read on, for entertainment’s sake (Aziz readily concedes there’s no larger meaning to his calendar-centric hobby). Or don’t — but, at least, acknowledge the enthusiasm here(!!)=====================“The single full date number of July 26, 2011 expressed in the month/day/year date format is 7262011 and guess what, this number equals the product of three consecutive prime numbers, i.e., 7262011 = 191 x 193 x 197!! (Interestingly enough, the reverse of this date number 1102627 also equals the product of three prime numbers (but not consecutive), that is, 1102627 = 19 x 131 x 443! Fascinating!!)Based on my calculations, the last time this type of date happened was in 1933 on August 7 (since 871933 = 89 x 97 x 101!). (Before this, it occurred in 1833 on August 27 since 8271833 = 197 x 199 x 211!)last_img read more

The division switches to more-generic search criteria: “Organizations involved with political, lobbying, or advocacy for exemption under 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4).”October: Rep. Charles W. Boustany Jr., R-La., sends a letter to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman requesting information about the policies of the tax-exempt division.November: The IRS responds to Boustany’s inquiry, making no mention that it is aware of targeting conservative groups.2012January: The tax-exemption division changes its search criteria because of concerns that the revised criteria were too generic.

State energy panel Landuse zone allows oil terminal

first_imgThe site where Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies want to build the Northwest’s largest oil-by-rail terminal in Vancouver is appropriately zoned for such a purpose, the state panel reviewing the proposal decided Tuesday.But that doesn’t mean the companies will be allowed to launch a rail-and-river operation handling as much as 380,000 barrels of crude per day at the Port of Vancouver, according to the state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council.During its regular public meeting in Olympia that was accessible by telephone, the evaluation council voted 8 to 1 to settle what it described as a very narrow question: Does the city’s heavy industrial zone at the port allow for such uses as the oil transfer terminal proposed by Tesoro and Savage?And while the evaluation council answered “yes,” it also went to great lengths to point out that the question of whether the companies should actually get to build and operate their project is far from settled.Approval of a narrow land-use consistency matter “does not, by any means, translate into an approval of the proposed project,” Bill Lynch, chairman of the evaluation council, said Tuesday.last_img read more

Renew levy asks East County Fire Rescue

first_imgVoters will have a chance to decide whether to continue financing emergency medical services from East County Fire & Rescue in the November election. ECF&R serves a 60-square-mile unincorporated area north and east of Camas and Washougal. Commissioners are asking voters to preserve a property tax levy that funds its ambulance service. If voters approve Proposition No. 1, the levy would continue at its current rate of 35 cents per $1,000 of assessed home value for six more years starting in 2015. The district suffered significant budget cuts in recent years as home values in the service area decreased during the recession. Most of the district’s crew members work on a volunteer basis.Keeping the revenue stream in place would help the district raise enough money to continue staffing paramedic responders and periodically replace ambulances and other aging equipment, commissioners say. The district also says part of the money would go toward offsetting fuel costs and continuing to put crews through training while offering CPR and first aid training opportunities for the community.In a statement supporting the ballot measure, representatives of ECF&R write that the levy helps to provide ambulance service at a lower cost than private companies offer.“Funds generated will allow East County Fire & Rescue to not bill for EMS response,” they said. “Rapid response of a local ambulance based within the community improves patient outcomes and keeps our community safe.”last_img read more

FBIs Urgent Request Reboot Your Router To Stop RussiaLinked Malware

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recommends any owner of small office and home office routers power cycle (reboot) the devices. When restarted, compromised routers will attempt to contact the Russian-backed web domain — now controlled by the FBI — which previously would have downloaded a malicious payload to reinfect the router. Now, those attempts will be redirected to the FBI-controlled server, which will help identify infected devices. The F.B.I. has several recommendations for any owner of a small office or home office router. The simplest thing to do is reboot the device, which will temporarily disrupt the malware if it is present. Users are also advised to upgrade the device’s firmware and to select a new secure password. If any remote-management settings are in place, the F.B.I. suggests disabling them. A full list of compromised routers can be found here.center_img The malware is able to perform multiple functions, including possible information collection, device exploitation, and blocking network traffic. According to a release from the FBI, foreign cyber actors have compromised hundreds of thousands of home and office routers and other networked devices worldwide.last_img read more

The Technology Behind Esquires Flashing Cover

first_imgTo commemorate its 75th anniversary, the October issue of Esquire will feature a flexible electronic “paper” cover that allows words and images to scroll across it—a first for magazines, according to parent company Hearst.”We decided to dedicate our 75th anniversary issue not to the magazine’s past but to our culture’s near future,” editor-in-chief David Granger said in an interview with FOLIO:. To pull it off, the magazine tapped E Ink, the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based electronic paper display technologies firm that developed the electronic paper display [EPD] technology for Amazon’s Kindle and the Sony Reader. The result, Granger said, is “a very literal representation of our theme: ‘The 21st Century Begins Now.’” Those words will flash across the cover of 100,000 copies when it hits newsstands in September.‘Microcapsules Thinner Than a Human Hair’Development of the EPD cover began about two years ago, according to Granger, when he and his team, with the developers at E Ink, began discussing how to create a flexible electronic cover. Hearst Interactive Media acquired a stake in E Ink about seven years ago. SOURCE: E Ink “The cover is made up of microcapsules that are thinner than a human hair and are very small in diameter,” said E Ink vice president of marketing Sriram Peruvemba. “How it basically works is that the microcapsules contain black and white pigments. When a charge is added, depending on the polarity, the pigment particles rise to the top creating the image you see.”In order to make the cover seem as much like paper as possible, E Ink used a flexible plastic to bind the device instead of glass, which is traditionally used in other LCD devices, Peruvemba said.To get the design right, E Ink collaborated with Hearst’s manufacturing department, Structural Graphics (the company which is assembling the cover) and printer R.R. Donnelley (which is printing and binding the magazine) to better understand how magazines are put together. Temperature became an issue during the assembly process, Granger said, since extreme temperatures deteriorate a battery’s life expectancy. “We had to arrange for everything to remain cool at all times during the assembly process,” he said. “That’s not something magazines normally have to think about.”RELATED VIDEO: Granger on the Industry’s Need to InnovateAnother obstacle was designing a power source—and the chips that operate the device— small enough to fit within a magazine cover. Hearst turned to a Chinese engineer to come up with something innovative, and small. “Look at Amazon’s Kindle: it’s mostly battery,” Granger said. “The electronic paper screen is very thin and pliable, but Amazon builds a superstructure around it to protect it and power it. We had to fit that into a magazine cover while preserving the cover’s integrity.”The battery should last for roughly 90 days, the company says. A Paperless Future for Magazines?Creating the industry’s first magazine with an EPD cover doesn’t come cheap. While Hearst declined to reveal the final price tag, the publisher helped offset the cost by selling the inside cover ad to Ford, which also will utilize the EPD technology.Granger hopes the technology becomes cheaper, and thinks that EPD could revolutionize the way we read magazines.”We’re hoping we can find ways to bring costs down through scale or more advance planning so that we can do it again,” he said. “I think there are a lot of options.”Hearst is also hoping to offset costs by upping the cover price. The special anniversary issue, only available on newsstands, will sell for $5.99—two dollars more than its normal cover price.How E Ink Workslast_img read more
