Game Trains Police To Get Facebook Data Fast

When a terrorist strikes, getting information fast from a tech giant can make the difference between police catching the suspects, or another attack taking place. That’s the premise of a new game created by Europol, the European body responsible for connecting the continent’s myriad policing agencies and helping them investigate major crimes.

Right now, police officers are often confused by the process. What data can they request from which provider? Can they retrieve any encrypted content from the likes of Apple or WhatsApp? What legal mechanisms should they be using? What’s the best language to use to ensure they get the information they want quickly?

Cope want data, from Facebook to TikTok

The game, exclusively shown to Forbes ahead of its release to law enforcement partners and their 4,500 officers on Wednesday, hopes to make sure police know the answers to those when an emergency happens. It looks much like

Lessons From Nintendo’s Game Boy

When they’re not writing our Modern @thletics column, Steve and Dave are the principals at Gains Group, a sport innovation firm that works with athletes, teams and leagues around the world.

* * * * *

1989 was a heckuva year. Many in sport remember it as the year of the Bay Series Earthquake, but if you’re from Detroit, you undoubtedly remember it was the year the Pistons finally won a championship. 

I (Steve) was an 11-year-old in St Louis, and I remember it as the year the Nintendo Game Boy came out. Indestructible, simple, cheap (relatively) and fun—I coveted the gaming system. My parents wouldn’t buy me one, so I had to borrow my buddy Jim’s. We spent the summer sitting outside the local baseball card store up the street from my house passing the console back and forth playing Tetris and the baseball game.

Game Platform Roblox Files Confidentially for Public Listing

Online game platform Roblox said Monday that on a confidential basis it had submitted a draft registration statement to the Securities and Exchange Commission for a public offering of common stock.

The San Mateo, Calif., company said it hasn’t determined the number of Class A common shares it will sell and at what price.

Roblox said it intends to commence the public offering following completion of the SEC review.

The company is aiming for a public valuation of about $8 billion, Reuters reported earlier this month. 

That would double the $4 billion valuation it got in a $150 million fundraising round in February led by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz. The VC firm said in February that the platform reached more than 115 million monthly users.

The company hosts millions of games that are built by its users, who then get a share of any related revenue.

CANOGA PARK, Calif., October 8, 2020 – California LightWorks, a leading U.S. manufacturer of LED horticultural lighting, today announced the introduction of MegaDrive™, a game-changing new professional grow light system that delivers unparalleled results while significantly reducing both up-front and long term operating costs. By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDrive™ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.

As the indoor and greenhouse horticulture industries mature, lowering operating costs is becoming essential to ensuring profitability. LED technology can significantly reduce operating costs through high efficiency, long fixture life and sunlight balancing.  However, LED technology adoption in the horticulture industry has been slow due to high up-front and installation costs.

The new MegaDrive™ system consists of a large central power unit connected to a series of up to 30
