What’s your party trick? Hacking guns? Cars? ATMs? One week a year, Vegas fills up with members of a group that’s becoming one of the most influential in the world: hackers. Thousands and thousands of hackers descend on Vegas for cybersecurity conferences Black Hat and DefCon. Laurie Segall reports.

Charles Darwin is often quoted AND is more often misquoted. The most frequent transgression is, “Only the strong survive.” Fact is, there is no accurate record of him ever saying or writing it.
Here is what Darwin likely said about strength and survival, but even this might be most accurately attributed to a Louisiana State University business professor named Leon C. Megginson and his interpretations of Darwin’s work:
It is not the strongest of the species that survives,
nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

Those who know the story of David versus Goliath understand it is about an underdog – a much smaller, weaker opponent – who takes on a champion of greater strength and size and wins. It is not in the winning we find a moral, but in the HOW. Just how could David slay a giant bully named Goliath?
David was incapable of meeting Goliath’s strength and power, but he was capable of adjusting to

Researchers conducting a large national registry study recommended changes to current breast cancer screening guidelines that would make family history a more important consideration in setting ages to begin regular mammography.
Elham Kharazmi, MD, PhD, of the National Center for Tumor Diseases in Heidelberg, Germany, and colleagues looked at data from large Swedish data sets on 5,099,172 women born there from 1932 onward with at least one known first-degree relative. Of these women in the latest dataset from 2017, 2.3% were diagnosed with primary invasive breast cancer, the majority of whom (86.4%) had no family history of the disease.
As described in the team’s nationwide cohort study online in JAMA Oncology, the risk-adapted starting age of screening was defined as the age by which women with a family history of breast cancer attained a 10-year cumulative risk that was similar to the average risk for women at the recommended age of screening initiation in the general population
One security firm looks at how hackers can access the computers on smart meters to steal electricity and consumer data from utilities.
A protein that drives growth of pancreatic cancer, and which could be a target for new treatments, has been identified by researchers at the Crick.
The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, looked into the most common type of pancreatic cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This is an aggressive cancer that develops from secretory and tubular cells of the pancreas.
There are no effective therapies to treat this cancer and only 8% of patients survive beyond five years after diagnosis.
The researchers analysed a specific group of tumour cells, called cancer stem cells. Similar to how healthy human stem cells repair tissues and organs, these cells have the ability to start new tumours and they can also differentiate into different types of tumour cells.
As these cells are a driving force behind cancer growth, being able to identify if they are present is an important step towards the development of new treatments. By analyzing the gene expression of these cancer stem cells, the
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tells CNN Tech’s Rachel Crane that whether the launch of the Falcon Heavy “succeeds or fails, it’s going to be exciting.”
How many times do we need to be reminded, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. In the spirit of using opposites for illustration, think on this: Some things in life are just too good NOT to be true.
Get Rich Fast – too good to be true, or too good NOT to be true? Depends on how you answer these two questions:
What does it mean to be rich?
How does one live a richer, fuller life?
To answer, you have to understand the word rich. It is derived from a root word meaning reach. You become richer when you reach out and expand any dimension of your life, accomplished by leaping outside your comfort zone and targeting big, hairy audacious goals (BHAGS) or Wildly Important Goals (WIGs).
Fact: while we all live under the same sky, we all do not have the same view of the horizon. This is precisely why we must all constantly seek to extend our reach. Here is a 9-point plan for growing richer:
Reach for greater wisdom. This is very personal, yet every life requires a
