Traditionally, when you want to give a new phone to an enterprise user, chances are some poor admin has to deal with ensuring that the device is configured correctly and that all the right policies are in place. As the name implies, the new zero-touch enrollment feature, however, takes all of these manual steps out of the process.

The idea here is that employees can use a device out of the box, because all the management services and setting are already ready to go when the device is shipped.

This means the user only has to sign in, walk through the setup process and start working, and admins don’t have to do any additional work to authorize these devices and add them to their mobility services. They simply assign the new device to a user and the device will be automatically enrolled with their existing enterprise mobility management solution like VMware’s AirWatch when it’s powered on.

HTC phones aren’t dead yet. At least for now. Even after its smartphone workforce has been almost cut in half by the Google “agreement”, HTC assures its loyal followers and investors that it will still be making smartphones. And as if on cue, details of a certain HTC U11 Plus have surfaced, claiming to be the company’s late 2017 flagship. … Continue reading

Via Hacker News [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15302707 ] "Intriguing title, no? These are the first eleven words of Neal Stephenson’s novel Seveneves, which set up the remaining 600 pages as an extended treatise on the future of humanity as it copes with certain annihilation. I thoroughly recommend it, as long as you can deal with hundreds of pages of orbital mechanics. In this post I will numerically explore this post-lunar age, to verify for myself if it would be as deadly as described.

In the novel, one day the moon breaks up into 7 roughly equal-sized pieces. These pieces continue peacefully orbiting the Earth for a while, and eventually two pieces collide. This collision causes a piece to fragment, making future collisions more likely. The process repeats, at what Stephenson says is an exponential rate, until the Earth is under near-constant bombardment from meteorites, wiping out (nearly) all life on Earth.

How likely is this? Let’s simulate the process numerically."

WTH is Going On? There Are About 400 Planets in Our Solar System Says Top Space Expert

SHOCK CLAIM: There are 397 planets in OUR solar system, says top space expert

THERE are 397 planets in our solar system, a space expert sensationally claimed.

Jerry Stone, from Spaceflight UK, has launched a campaign to reclassify Pluto, where frozen water has been discovered, as a full planet.

Ever since the discovery of Pluto in 1930 there were nine planets in the solar system - the others being Mercury, Neptune, Venus, Uranus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

But in 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) at its 2006 conference in Prague stripped Pluto, the smallest of them, of the title creating the dwarf planet status, by a slim margin of 206 to 199.

The controversial decision was made because a number of similar-sized "objects" to Pluto were being discovered and critics of the decision say official astronomers were struggling to keep on top of them so tightened up entry requirements into our solar system's planet club.

Did you do this Alice?

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

This is the largest specimen I’ve encountered of this species so far this year, and I could see its beautiful color from afar. It stands tall and alone in the midst of three mature conifers and is an amazing view!

It looked completely undamaged at first, but a slug has left its mark even on this beauty.

It’s rare to find a fully mature mushroom almost completely undamaged by maggots or slugs, and such a treat when a huge specimen as this one is growing in a beautiful location like this.

This is where I’d expect to find Alice as this is wonderland indeed!

"SUMMARY

This story at The Daily Wire describes a new study that evaluates the remaining amount of greenhouse gas that we can emit before global temperature rises to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial times. The study suggests that we may have a little more room in the so-called “carbon budget” than previously estimated.

Scientists who reviewed the Daily Wire article found that it greatly misinterpreted the study by saying that it showed that climate projections have overestimated warming. This is incorrect. The study does not conclude that climate models are overly sensitive to warming, or that future warming will be less than projected. Instead, it investigates a discrepancy between the total amount of greenhouse gas emitted since the Industrial Revolution in the models and in the real world. This difference in estimated past emissions affects the study’s calculation of the remaining “carbon budget” for future emissions.

According to the study’s authors, articles implying their work “indicates that global temperatures are not rising as fast as predicted” (as published in Fox News, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, Breitbart…) do not represent their work. Describing the inaccurate coverage of their study, two of the authors wrote, “Crucially, the reason for the correction [of the carbon budget] was not that we had a new estimate of the climate response, or warming per tonne of CO2 emitted—we used exactly the current consensus range—but that we took better account of past emissions and where human-induced warming has got to already.”
[...]
Prof. Piers Forster, one of the authors of the Millar et al study, asked by Carbon Brief to further clarify some of the paper’s findings and methodologies in light of the media coverage:

Our paper focused on carbon emissions and the feasibility of limiting future warming to 1.5 ºC. We concluded that we would only succeed with strengthened policies to bring rapid and sustained emission reduction.

We made estimates of the allowable future emissions of carbon before we pass 1.5 ºC. To do this we made assumptions about past warming, exploring different levels of warming from 2015 to address the role of uncertainty in historic warming levels. Readers should note that our method is only one way of computing the budget. The IPCC special report on 1.5 ºC will need to consider it alongside other lines of evidence. The usefulness of the carbon budget concept will also likely be assessed given its inherent uncertainty due to the uncertain historic warming.

I think some press reporting is misleading as our paper did not assess climate impacts or climate model performance. Rather, our paper confirms the need for much increased urgent action from around the world if society stands a chance of limiting warming to 1.5 ºC."
