Beshear Issues Alert for Military Consumer Month

 FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 6, 2018) – July is Military Consumer Month, and Attorney General Andy Beshear is warning veterans and military families to be on the lookout for the most common veteran-specific scams. Beshear said the alert is part of his office’s “Mission Veterans Protected” (MVP) program aimed at helping Kentucky’s veteran community combat the findings in an AARP study where veterans are twice as likely to fall victim to fraud when compared to nonveterans. “My office is currently working to help two widows of veterans who lost more than $43,000 to scammers pretending to be active duty soldiers,” Beshear said. “It is a disgrace that con artists target military families, and we are working to prevent these crimes by making sure Kentucky veterans,

Tagwalk Wants to Be the Google of Fashion

Le Figaro and The Financial Times have called Tagwalk the Google of fashion. But when she started out, Ms. Van Houtte, who initially tagged every single image by hand (now it is mostly done via artificial intelligence algorithms, though still given a human once-over before going live), encountered considerable skepticism, particularly from potential investors.“A lot of them were very dismissive,” she said. “They said it was too niche, that it only catered to bloggers and assistants and lower rungs of the fashion industry, that it couldn’t scale. Even my parents started having their doubts about where the business could go.”Critically, one person did not. Carmen Busquets, the Venezuelan businesswoman and angel investor who found fame as a founding investor in Net-a-Porter, quickly unders

At first glance, Jamboard looks like a hardware product. And it is. As a 55-inch digital whiteboard, Google sells the BenQ-made Jamboard with two styluses, an eraser, and a wall mount for $4,999, plus a $600 per year management and support fee. You can even add a rolling stand, if you like, for $1,349. In June 2018, Google announced discounted Jamboard pricing for educators that eliminated the recurring fees: G Suite for Education customers can purchase a Jamboard with management and support for a one-time fee of $5,600. But Jamboard is also software—more precisely, collaborative whiteboard software. Google added Jamboard as a core G Suite

With Google’s Speed Update coming sometime this month, I asked Google’s John Mueller to clarify what he meant when he said the update will work at “more of a gradual scale.” In a recent webmaster hangout, he told participants that “the faster you can make your pages the more we can take that into account. And it’s not so much that it’s like it’s too slow or it’s faster.” That seemed to contradict the original announcement where Google said this update “will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users.” So I asked Mueller about this one on Twitter. He reiterated the earlier guidance that “this only affects the slowest sites” adding that “those can incrementally improve” but went on to say that “ideally, you’d significantly improve the spee

If you believe the CEOs, a fully autonomous car could be only months away. In 2015, Elon Musk predicted a fully autonomous Tesla by 2018; so did Google. Delphi and MobileEye’s Level 4 system is currently slated for 2019, the same year Nutonomy plans to deploy thousands of driverless taxis on the streets of Singapore. GM will put a fully autonomous car into production in 2019, with no steering wheel or ability for drivers to intervene. There’s real money behind these predictions, bets made on the assumption that the software will be able to catch up to the hype. On its face, full autonomy seems closer than ever. Waymo is already testing cars on limited-but-public roads in Arizona. Tesla and a host of other imitators already sell a limited form of autopilot, counting on drivers to inte

Viral videos are a funny thing. Thousands are uploaded every day, yet one good one has the ability to unravel your entire day’s work and take over your life. That’s what happened to me this week when my colleague sent me along the following video: NIGGA SAID HUBERT LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pic.twitter.com/TDWLu2hmd4 — Gluv. (@DefNotGluv) June 25, 2018 In the clip, a woman gets busted on her birthday for cheating on her boyfriend. He packs her belongings like presents. It’s pretty sad, until he delivers the punchline: Hubert. You’ve been cheating on me with Hubert… You’ve been cheating on me with a dude named Hubert. I don’t know what hooked us most. It could be the drama… or the name “

It is about the most trusted place to visit when looking for inspirational ideas for decoration and the likes. So, it does not come as a surprise that Google is looking to the world’s catalogue of ideas for inspiration. Google, according to TechCrunch, has confirmed that it is testing an image search feature on desktop—just the way Pinterest works. The feature will align pictures vertically instead of the usual horizontal mode, which will make the results look more like the way it is done in Pinterest. Images, according to the report, will now have sho
