New study looks at space power competition through China’s lens

“China’s Space Narrative” was released Sept. 17 by the U.S. Air Force Air University’s China Aerospace Studies Institute and the CNA nonprofit research center.

WASHINGTON — A new study by the U.S. Air Force’s university think tank confirms the widely held view that China’s anti-satellite weapons pose a national security threat to the United States. But the study also highlights China’s use of soft power and diplomacy as potentially powerful weapons that could undermine the United States.

“China’s Space Narrative” released Sept. 17, was a joint project by the U.S. Air Force Air University’s China Aerospace Studies Institute and the CNA nonprofit research center.

“As the era of great power competition continues to evolve, we must understand the full breadth and depth of the competition, how they think, and how they are likely to act or react,” Brendan Mulvaney, director of the China Aerospace Studies Institute, writes in the introduction

The United States is ceding its position as a world technological power. For decades, the world’s brightest landed here to build. They chose the U.S. for a few simple reasons, among them access to world-class equipment and education, the ability to take high-paying tech jobs, and a business climate that rewarded the hard-working and lucky entrepreneur with potential riches.

That’s gone.

The TikTok saga has been, at best, a comedy. China, long considered the land of clones, had built something world-changing, and the U.S. and its benighted executive legislated it using tactics and tricks that come from some 1990s business playbook.

At issue is the concept of fairness, however that is defined in the realm of global business. For decades, companies wanting to do business in the People’s Republic of China faced draconian requirements, including working with a local partner to

Apparent racial bias found in Twitter photo algorithm

An algorithm Twitter uses to decide how photos are cropped in people’s timelines appears to be automatically electing to display the faces of white people over people with darker skin pigmentation. The apparent bias was discovered in recent days by Twitter users posting photos on the social media platform. A Twitter spokesperson said the company plans to reevaluate the algorithm and make the results available for others to review or replicate.

Twitter scrapped its face detection algorithm in 2017 for a saliency detection algorithm, which is made to predict the most important part of an image. A Twitter spokesperson said today that no race or gender bias was found in evaluation of the algorithm before it was deployed “but it’s clear we have more analysis to do.”

Twitter engineer Zehan Wang tweeted that bias was detected in 2017 before

TikTok tussle shows the uneven economic ‘decoupling’ that has accelerated between U.S. and China

On Saturday, the president said he had approved a deal in which Oracle and Walmart would partner with Tik-tok in a new, U.S.-controlled company. Designed to address his objections to possible Chinese government harvesting of Americans’ data, the move came after the Commerce Department abruptly announced on Friday it would ban TikTok and WeChat, a second Chinese mobile service, from U.S. app stores. A federal judge later issued a temporary injunction blocking the WeChat ban, meaning both platforms remain available in the U.S.

The extraordinary trans-Pacific tussle — China’s foreign ministry groused that it showcased Washington’s “hideous agenda of robbery and economic bullying” — is hardly an isolated occurrence for the fast-souring U.S.-China relationship. This month alone, the Chinese government unveiled new global data security standards designed to outflank a rival U.S. initiative. The American ambassador to China quit his post in Beijing, preferring to help Trump’s re-election bid. And

A rare blue moon will light up the sky on Halloween

The night sky on Halloween will be illuminated by a blue moon, the second full moon in a month. The relatively rare occurrence happens once every two and a half years on average, according to NASA’s National Space Science Data Center.

Every month has a full moon, but because the lunar cycle and the calendar year aren’t perfectly synched, about every three years we wind up with two in the same calendar month.

The National Weather Service spotted a massive bat colony on its weather radar
October’s first full moon, also known as the harvest moon, will appear on the first day of the month. The second full moon, or blue moon, will be visible on October 31. It’s the first instance of a blue moon in the Americas since March 2018.
It’s also the first time a Halloween full moon has appeared for all time zones since 1944, according to Farmers’ Almanac. The last time a Halloween full moon appeared was for

UCF shakes off slow third quarter, routs Georgia Tech

ATLANTA — UCF coaches talked about quarterback Dillon Gabriel’s growth and improvement from his true freshman to sophomore seasons.

It didn’t take long for Gabriel to showcase the strides he made during the offseason, tossing three touchdown passes while guiding No. 14 UCF to a 49-21 road win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Knights had to overcome an ugly third quarter, eventually pulling away thanks to three fourth-quarter scores.

UCF coach Josh Heupel praised the Knights for coping with extensive coronavirus restrictions and a national fight against social injustice, unifying to kick off the 2020 season with a win.

“The buildup of what’s happened here the last six months. The uncertainty for tomorrow over the last six months. … They didn’t know until 9:30 this morning that we’re going to play. I’m really proud of them,” Heupel said. “They’ve made me and they’ve made our coaching staff better.”

PlayStation 5 Launch Games to Quickly Fill Up Console’s SSD

Installing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition and the Demon’s Souls remake, two highly anticipated launch titles for the PlayStation 5, will take up about 20% of the console’s hard drive.

The PlayStation 5 will come with an 825GB custom SSD for storage, but according to the PlayStation Direct website, players may have to consider using the console’s expandable storage feature sooner than expected.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition, which also includes the remastered edition of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, will take up a minimum of 105GB, according to its listing on the website. The Demon’s Souls remake, meanwhile, is at least 66GB.

With a total of 171GB, these two launch games will already use up 20.7% of the PlayStation 5’s 825GB SSD. This may have been expected though, as developers continue to push the boundaries with next-generation games.

In comparison, Sekiro: Shadows
