Cortana coming to China with new look and features

Chinese Cortana in action.

Joe Belfiore was in China today to officially unveil the next update to Windows Phone 8.1. While details were leaked in the last few days, Belfiore had a range of new features to discuss. Among them was the virtual personal assistant Cortana—star of the Windows Phone 8.1 ads—that will be available beyond US borders with the update.

The next two countries to get Cortana will be China and the UK. In both cases, Microsoft has customized its virtual personal assistant to be a better fit for the new markets. In the UK, this means she'll speak with an English accent, use British English spellings, and know about things such as the London Stock Exchange and Premier League football.

Her Chinese incarnation, named Xiao Na, includes more customization. Most significantly, she has an alternative appearance for China. We were told by Microsoft that the eyes have a particular importance in China for reflecting emotion, and that this motivated the virtual assistant's appearance and features. Xiao Na speaks Mandarin Chinese, and can provide certain China-specific pieces of information. For example, her weather reports include air quality information and she understands the alternative day driving restrictions used when smog is particularly bad.

Airbnb Partners With Cities For Disaster Preparedness

An anonymous reader writes: Every time a city- or state-wide disaster strikes, services to help the victims slowly crop up over the following days and weeks. Sometimes they work well, sometimes they don't. Today, city officials in San Francisco and Portland announced a partnership with peer-to-peer lodging service Airbnb to work out some disaster-preparedness plans ahead of time. Airbnb will locate hosts in these cities who will commit to providing a place to stay for people who are displaced in a disaster, and then set up alerts and notifications to help people find these hosts during a crisis. The idea is that if wildfires or an earthquake forces thousands of people to evacuate their homes, they can easily be absorbed into an organized, distributed group of willing hosts, rather than being shunted to one area and forced to live in a school gymnasium or something similar.

Hello,

I am an anarchist organizer from Los Angeles. A member of an anarchist collective known as the Free Association of Anarchists. I would like to speak about a project that I have been working on for a while. The project is a new business concept in LA, Dirt Dog.

Dirt Dog is a new business concept that specializes in the Los Angeles street food. We love Los Angeles and so it is built into our concept to use 10% of the profits to fund projects and events that will be proposed and voted on by the community. We aren’t writing checks, we will be working with the community to execute the event which will not come from us, but rather proposed by the community and voted on through every purchase.

We will also have coupons that will donate 10% of profits to a charity of your choice from the list of charities we work with. As we all know some charities aren’t really working with the community. We are working with charities that are directly working and impacting the LA community.

I hope that this is something that may be of interest to you as we hope to get some support and participation for the community aspect of the concept.

Our website is dirtdogla.com. Like us on FaceBook and follow us on Twitter.

Thanks.

The Malaysia Airlines Disaster and the New Sanctions on Ukraine July 30, 2014 Stephen Holmes and Ivan Krastev Summary: 

Russia's annexation of Crimea came with few consequences for Russia, while an accidental attack on a civilian airliner by semi-anarchical rebel forces, only loosely controlled by Moscow, may redefine the country's place in the world order. Here's why.

Putin’s march into Ukraine last spring did not change the world. It barely even changed Europe. The EU hesitated to label the aggression as an act of war. And, although the United States and the EU agreed to impose sanctions on Moscow, the real debate in Western capitals was not how to respond, but rather, how to express resolve while doing as little as possible.

Why Qatar's Peacemaking Shouldn't Be Trusted July 30, 2014 Bilal Y. Saab Summary: 

Qatar’s diplomatic intervention in Gaza has exposed the risks inherent in its broader grand strategy. Although Qatar’s foreign policy has not changed, it is no longer going to be able to pose as a neutral arbiter.

For anyone who has been following Qatari foreign policy over the past decade, or has had a chance to read Article 7 of the country’s 2003 constitution, which explicitly states that the country should strive to be an international peacemaker, Doha’s recent attempts to mediate between Israel and Hamas should come as no surprise. Mediation has been the stock-in-trade of recent Qatari foreign policy; it made similar diplomatic forays in Yemen in 2007 and 2008, Lebanon in 2008, and Sudan in 2009 and 2010.

Join a Twitter Q&A on Climate Change and the Cost of Inaction
  Source: White House.gov Blog Feed 2014-07-30 00:34:09 (4 hours ago) 

Climate change is not a distant threat – we're already experiencing its harmful impacts. That's why President Obama has taken action to cut carbon pollution by moving to cleaner sources of energy and improving the energy efficiency of our cars, trucks, and buildings. But further steps are urgently needed to ensure that we leave our kids a planet that’s not polluted or damaged.

Today, the White House released a new report from the Council of Economic Advisers that breaks down the economic consequences of delaying action to combat climate change. The report finds that delaying policy actions by a decade increases total climate change mitigation costs by about 40%, and failing to take any action would risk substantial economic damage.

So how will this affect you and your community? Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, is taking to Twitter to answer your questions. Today, July 29 at 2:30 p.m. ET, join him for a Twitter Q&A on the economic impacts of climate change on his Twitter handle, @CEAChair.

Here's what you need to know:

Bob McDonald Confirmed as the Next Secretary of Veterans Affairs

This afternoon, in a 97-0 vote, the Senate confirmed Robert "Bob" McDonald to serve as the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

In a statement, President Obama applauded the Senate for the confirmation, noting that McDonald is "uniquely equipped" to lead the Department:

I applaud the overwhelming, bipartisan confirmation of Bob McDonald as our next Secretary of Veterans Affairs.  As a veteran himself and a proud member of a military family, Bob is deeply committed to serving our veterans and their families.  And as an executive with decades of private-sector experience, he is uniquely equipped to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, and to help change the way the VA does business.  As a country, we have a solemn duty to serve our veterans as well as they have served us.  I know Bob will help us honor that commitment and make sure every veteran gets the care they deserve, the benefits they’ve earned, and the chance to pursue the American Dream they’ve risked so much to protect.

Hackers Plundered Israeli Defense Firms That Built 'Iron Dome' Missile Defense
  Source: Slashdot 2014-07-30 00:33:08 (5 hours ago) 
An anonymous reader writes: Brian Krebs reports on information from Columbia, Md.-based threat intelligence firm Cyber Engineering Services Inc. that attackers thought to be operating out of China hacked into the corporate networks of three top Israeli defense technology companies. The attackers were seeking technical documents related to Iron Dome, Israel's air defense system. "IAI was initially breached on April 16, 2012 by a series of specially crafted email phishing attacks. ... Once inside the IAI’s network, [the attackers] spent the next four months in 2012 using their access to install various tools and trojan horse programs on systems throughout company’s network and expanding their access to sensitive files, CyberESI said. The actors compromised privileged credentials, dumped password hashes, and gathered system, file, and network information for several systems. The actors also successfully used tools to dump Active Directory data from domain controllers on at least two different domains on the IAI’s network. All told, CyberESI was able to identify and acquire more than 700 files — totaling 762 MB total size — that were exfiltrated from IAI’s network during the compromise. The security firm said most of the data acquired was intellectual property and likely represented only a small portion of the entire data loss by IAI." Most of the stolen material pertained to Arrow III missiles, UAVs, and ballistic rockets.

$15 Billion Annual Public Financing System for Physician Training Needs Overhaul

The U.S. should significantly reform the federal system for financing physician training and residency programs to ensure that the public's $15 billion annual investment is producing the doctors that the nation needs, says a new report by the Institute of Medicine. Current financing -- provided largely through Medicare -- requires little accountability, allocates funds independent of workforce needs or educational outcomes, and offers insufficient opportunities to train physicians in the health care settings used by most Americans.
