european clocks slowed by lag in continent’s power grid

Millions of Europeans who arrived late to work or school Wednesday had a good excuse — an unprecedented lag in the continent’s electricity grid that’s slowing down some clocks. The problem is caused by a political dispute between Serbia and Kosovo that’s sapping a small amount of energy from the local grid, causing a domino effect across the 25-nation network spanning the continent from Portugal to Poland and Greece to Germany. “Since the European system is interconnected ... when there is an imbalance somewhere the frequency slightly drops,” said Claire Camus, a spokeswoman for the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity. The Brussels-based organization, known as ENTSO-E, said in a separate statement that “this average frequency deviation, that has never happened in any similar way in the Continental European power system,…

amazon ceo’s wealth soars to new heights while trump’s sinks

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has become the first $100 billion mogul to top Forbes’ annual rankings of the world’s richest people. But President Donald Trump’s fortune sank during his first year in office despite a surging stock market. The Bezos milestone, revealed in Tuesday’s release of Forbes’ closely watched list , underscores the growing clout of both Bezos and the company that he founded in 1994 as an online bookstore. Forbes’ breakdown provided further evidence that serving as president isn’t the most lucrative job, even when most of the rich are getting richer. All told, the world now holds more than 2,200 billionaires with a combined fortune of $9.1 trillion, up 18 percent from ago, according to Forbes’ calculations. Although Trump is part of that elite group, he saw his fortune sink by…

‘the walking dead’ has worst showing in many years

It wasn’t so long ago that zombies, and “The Walking Dead,” were all the rage. This week’s ratings show how that’s faded. The latest episode of the AMC series was seen by 6.82 million viewers on Sunday (03), the drama’s smallest audience since 2012. For the youthful 18-to-49-year-old demographic, it was the worst showing since 2010. “The Walking Dead” this week competed directly against the Oscars, which themselves had a record low viewership. The first night ratings are also hurt by the same factors affecting television in general; viewers are increasingly finding different ways to watch. For example, in 2014 AMC found that three-quarters of viewers watched the show on live TV or on DVRs. Three years later, that number was down to 55 percent, with the rest watching streams online or…

want to work at my small company? meet me in the coffee shop

When Michael Dwan starts interviewing job candidates, he doesn’t use the phone or an in-person meeting — he texts with them. “It’s a real-world test of how we actually work,” says Dwan, chief technology officer at Highrise, a business software company where employees including programmers and design engineers work remotely. The changing dynamics of the U.S. workforce — its shrinking pool of available workers and ever-increasing use of technology — have led some small business owners and managers to be more creative when recruiting staffers. Some like Dwan use messaging or chatting programs to make that first significant contact with a candidate, or social media to lure potential hires. Others go low-tech: They offer free training to prospective hires because of a shortage of skilled workers, or meet with candidates in casual…

china to recruit civilian astronauts, boost crewed missions

China will begin recruiting civilian astronauts for its military-backed space program and plans to increase the number of crewed missions to around two a year, a top official with the country’s space program said. China’s third batch of astronaut trainees will include recruits from industry, research institutions and universities who will help build and crew China’s independent space station, Yang Liwei, deputy director of the China Manned Space Engineering Office, told reporters on the sidelines of the annual session of China’s ceremonial parliament. New astronauts will include maintenance engineers and payload specialists as well as pilots, Yang, who became China’s first man in space in 2003. China selected 14 astronauts, or yuhangyuan in Chinese, in the late 1990s and another seven in 2010, including two women. A total of 11 have been sent…

bitcoin heist: 600 powerful computers stolen in iceland

Some 600 computers used to “mine” bitcoin and other virtual currencies have been stolen from data centers in Iceland in what police say is the biggest series of thefts ever in the North Atlantic island nation. Some 11 people were arrested, including a security guard, in what Icelandic media have dubbed the “Big Bitcoin Heist.” A judge at the Reykjanes District Court ordered two people to remain in custody. The powerful computers, which have not yet been found, are worth almost $2 million. But if the stolen equipment is used for its original purpose — to create new bitcoins — the thieves could turn a massive profit in an untraceable currency without ever selling the items. “This is a grand theft on a scale unseen before,” said Olafur Helgi Kjartansson, the police commissioner…
