Hackers can easily steal passport photos from vulnerable UK Brexit app, report claims
The UK Home Office’s “EU Exit: ID Document Check” application, which allows citizens and their families to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme, is vulnerable to hacking. This is according to a report by Norwegian cybersecurity company Promon, which specializes in securing apps from hacking attacks. According to the report, the Brexit app (as it's commonly called) "lacks functionality that prevents malware from reading and stealing sensitive information provided by users, including passport details and photo IDs." Basically the app's not resilient enough to hackers adding malicious elements to it, repackaging it, redistributing it, or injecting malicious code while the app is running.   Read more...More about Uk, Brexit, Tech, and Cybersecurity
"Removing the water": physically-accurate color correction algorithm for underwater photography
Researcher Derya Akkaynak developed a photogrammetry algorithm that corrects underwater photography to remove color haze created by backscattering -- in effect "removing the water" to show the underwater world in its fullness of color and detail. The results are beautiful and crystal clear. Why do all the pictures you take underwater look blandly blue-green? The answer has to do with how light travels through water. Derya Akkaynak, an oceangoing engineer, has figured out a way to recover the colorful brilliance of the deep. You can read the scientific paper at OpenAccess: Sea-thru: A Method For Removing Water From Underwater Images [PDF] The Sea-thru method estimates backscatter using the dark pixels and their known range information. Then, it uses an estimate of the spatially varying illuminant to obtain the range-dependent attenuation coefficient. Using more than 1,100 images from two optically different water bodies, which we make available, we show that our method with the revised model outperforms those using the atmospheric model. Consistent removal of water will open up large underwater datasets to powerful computer vision and machine learning algorithms, creating exciting opportunities for the future of underwater exploration and conservation. A funny problem with the video: at 2:56 in, they're seen using Photoshop's color balance tools to edit one of the images, while Akkaynak says "this method is not photoshopping an image." It's surely just a terrible edit and they were doing a comparison, but it made me wonder, so I fired up Photoshop to see how it does. Here, the paper's example is seen raw (top left), corrected by Photoshop's Auto Color tool (top right), corrected by Sea-Thru (bottom left) and corrected by me using the color balance sliders in Photoshop (bottom right).

The beef between Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley will never die
Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Getty Images We have that and more in Thursday’s NBA newsletter. Players can switch teams, win MVPs, get contracts, swap teammates, yet still maintain beef if that beef is true enough. Once upon a time, Patrick Beverley was a teammate of James Harden on the Houston Rockets, and Russell Westbrook was a star of the rival Oklahoma City Thunder. SB Nation’s show BEEF HISTORY walks you through why and how the pair fought. Now Westbrook is a Harden co-star in Houston and Beverley is a Clipper. BUT THE BEEF LIVES. The teams met Wednesday with Harden lighting up L.A. Would you expect Mr. Westbrook to note that fact after the game? Well, of course. And with a devastating (and untrue) quote. “Pat Bev trick y’all, man, like he playing defense. He don’t guard nobody, man. He just running around, doing nothing.” Feuds come and feuds go. Beef is eternal. Speaking of beef, hilariously we may have a beef between Doc Rivers and Austin Rivers after the latter tried (successfully) to get the former T’d up while the coach was on a rant late in the Clippers’ loss. Austin then taunted Doc after he got ejected. Beautiful. Speaking of the Rockets, here’s Michael Pina on how Houston and Westbrook are growing together. Scores Grizzlies 119, Hornets 117Sixers 97, Magic 112Wizards 133, Celtics 140Clippers 93, Rockets 102Spurs 114, Wolves 129Warriors 94, Lakers 120Raptors 114, Blazers 106 Schedule All times Eastern.

Dwight Howard defended Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the comments of an Instagram. He explains why. If there was still a Comeback Player of the Year award ... Nike finally made Sabrina Ionescu jerseys.

Trump's signature tax break for poor people went to subsidize a superyacht marina in Florida
Trump's 2017 #taxscam transferred more than a trillion dollars to the richest people in America, but when Trump talks about it, he likes to tout the bill's "opportunity zone" provisions that provided massive tax breaks to investors who put money into places that would supposedly create jobs and housing for poor Americans. But which regions get designated as "opportunity zones" was left up to state governments, and have become a corruption bonanza as major political donors lean on state governors to designate their pet property developments as tax-havens, even as actual poor neighborhoods in desperate need of investment are turned down for status. This is especially visible in Florida, where then-Governor Rick Scott handed his top donors special tax designations for luxury projects, while turning down multiple applications from some of Florida's poorest areas. Among Florida's "opportunity zones" are Rybovich marina, a marina for $100m+ superyachts abutted by luxury condo towers called Marina Village. They're owned by Wayne Huizenga Jr, the scion of the Blockbuster Video fortune, who lobbied Scott for the marina's inclusion, resulting in a change to the designation plans. Other billionaire Scott donors also cashed in on the "opportunity zone" scam, thanks to their stake in Marina Village. Billionaire Tampa Ball Lightning owner Jeff Vinik, another Scott donor, got a tax break for his luxury residence/hotel/shop development in Tampa. The beneficiaries of this corruption insisted to Propublica that they weren't seeking tax breaks for themselves, but rather, they were motivated by concern for small-time investors who might build on adjacent lands.

'Awful and fabulous': the madness of Flowers in the Attic
Forty years ago, VC Andrews’ novel about incest, rape and murder-by-doughnut was declared ‘deranged swill’, but new books under her name still sell. Why?Forty years ago this month, Flowers in the Attic, the debut novel of one VC Andrews was published. A review in the Washington Post didn’t mince its words, describing it as “deranged swill” that “may well be the worst book I have ever read”.The plot is nothing if not deranged – but even 40 years later, utterly compelling. Cathy and Chris Dollanganger and their little brother and sister, Cory and Carrie, are beautiful, blond-haired and as happy as can be until their handsome father dies. Their destitute mother tells them that in order to regain the fortune from which she has been disinherited, they must hide in their grandparents’ vast attic for a few days so she can persuade their grandfather to reinstate her as his heir.

Apple could bundle Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple News Plus into a single subscription as soon as 2020 (AAPL)
Apple In the last few years, Apple has moved aggressively into the world of digital services.  The iPhone maker now operates Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and Apple News Plus as monthly subscription-based services. Apple is reportedly looking to bundle at least some of those services into a single, unified subscription option. According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is considering a subscription bundle for 2020 that could combine Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, and Apple News Plus. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. First it was Apple Music, and then it was Apple News Plus, and Apple Arcade, and, most recently, Apple TV Plus.

Venice’s historic flooding blamed on human failure and climate change
Photo by MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP via Getty Images An extreme high tide inundated 85 percent of Venice on Tuesday night, drowning some parts of the city in six feet of water. Floodwaters pushed boats ashore and swept through buildings, swiping groceries off shelves and knocking library books into murky pools. Schools closed, a city council meeting was canceled. Residents and tourists navigated streets in waist-high waters. One man in his 70s died from electrocution as he tried to turn on a pump in his home. Exceptionally high tides similar to this one have taken place in the city roughly once every five years or so. But this year’s disastrous flooding is the worst it’s been since 1966. It’s the result of a confluence of risk factors involving the Moon, weather, sinking, a changing... Continue reading…

10 things you should do if you're worried about your future after a round of layoffs, according to career experts
TOLGA AKMEN/AFP/Getty Images If you survived a layoff at your company, career experts say to be wary of signs that more trouble will hit your company down the line. Closed-door meetings, media reports of trouble in your industry, and a shift in company culture can all signal more layoffs down the line. But if you find yourself taking on new responsibilities after the layoff, experts suggest you stick around. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Layoffs have devastated workers at some of the buzziest US companies this year.  Former startup unicorns like WeWork and Uber announced layoffs after their companies became tangled in controversy or failed to make profits. Technological changes in how we buy goods and read the news has hurt workers at some retail and media companies. And even relatively healthy corporations like Apple have shed teams that weren't working out as planned. Layoffs don't always mean a company is in financial trouble — they could mean the firm recently merged with another company or changed strategies and did away with extra personnel.  But sometimes, layoffs are just the beginning of, well, more layoffs. If you survived a company layoff but worry about more down the line, here are 10 things career experts say you should do:Even if you survived a layoff, always keep your resume updated and watch the job market. Joe Raedle/Getty Images Amanda Augustine, career expert at TopResume, recommends employees always make sure they are prepared for the worst, even if they just weathered an initial layoff.  The best professionals, she said, are ones that are keeping an eye on the next big opportunity even if they're not looking to immediately jump ship. Even if you don't know how your company will fare after a layoff, keep your resume updated and be aware of open jobs on the market, Augustine says. "Make sure you have a copy of your performance reviews, testimonials, anything that you could use as fodder to help you update your LinkedIn profile and your resume," Augustine said. "It is always better to update your resume and prepare for a job search when you do not immediately need to find a new job." Find out whether your boss has a plan for how the company will bounce back after layoffs. Getty Images The fact that a layoff happened indicates something in your company's business model failed, says Marc Cenedella, founder and CEO of Ladders job search. In turn, your company should have a plan to make adjustments to get back on track. If you don't sense upper management has a plan for how the company plans to get better and more profitable, you should look elsewhere, Cenedella says. Keep an eye out for how the company culture changes following layoffs. Jetta Productions Inc/Getty Images When trying to differentiate between whether a layoff will lead to renewed growth or if there's more bad news down the line, Lynn Taylor, workplace expert and author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job," says to pay attention to company culture.  "Does it seem like your work is going unnoticed or unappreciated?" Taylor asks. "This may or may not be personal, but it may be part of a layoff where your boss doesn't want to make you feel like everything is honky dory anymore because there's going to be [another] layoff." Red flags that could suggest your company might make more layoffs down the line include:  A change in the quality of how human resources handles your complaints A lack of friendliness among staff or higher ups No encouragement to start new projects or a lack of innovation among teams Getting excluded from meetings or feeling ignored by your boss   See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Oprah and Melinda Gates argue that being yourself over fitting in is a surefire way to advance your career — and the research backs them upThe 25 American industries most likely to lose hundreds of jobs if the US-China trade war continuesWomen in Japan are being told not to wear glasses in the workplace — here are 5 sexist dress codes from around the worldSEE ALSO: Nearly 3 in 4 women in tech have mulled leaving the field, signaling the industry still has a gender diversity problem

MH17 investigators say phone calls show Ukraine rebels' ties to Russia
Intercepts suggest separatists sought guidance from Russia before jet was shot down Dutch-led investigators have released new recordings of intercepted telephone calls that show separatist leaders in Ukraine requesting military support and political guidance from Russian political figures in the period before the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner that killed all 298 people on board.Those caught on tape allegedly include Vladislav Surkov, a political aide to Vladimir Putin, whom separatist leaders have called “our man in the Kremlin”. Security officials in the audiotapes also refer to “a mandate” from the Russian defence minister, Sergey Shoigu, to reform east Ukraine’s military hierarchy and coordination with the FSB director, Alexander Bortnikov, to deliver military aid, apparently including night-vision equipment and ammunition.

Directly importing photos into Adobe Lightroom is about to get a lot easier
I love Adobe's Lightroom app. It makes editing my photos, one at a time or a bunch all at once a pleasure. I use it to catalog my photos, too: Apple's Photos apps on Mac OS and iPadOS just don't do it for me.  That said, I loath the number of hoops I have to jump through any time I want to import RAW photos from my camera into the iOS or iPadOS version of the app. Yeah, there's a Siri Shortcut to give shutterbugs a hand. But I don't use Siri. Happily, earlier today, I discovered that the two hundred and eleventy steps required to import photos into the app from my much-loved Sony RX100 III will soon become a whole lot more reasonable. Next to Scrivener releasing an iOS version of its spectacular writing app for iOS a few years back, the possibility of easily importing RAW images to Lightroom without having to deal with any bullshit is one of my favorite developments to come to the iPad since I bought my first one back in 2010.
