Pentax K-3 Mark III: Classic mirror reflex camera with coarse viewfinder

Ricoh imaging had to move the market launch of his new mirror reflex top model pentax k-3 mark iii again and again. Now the official qualification is there. From april, the aps c camera for a price of just under 2000 euros in the colors black and silver will come to the market.

There is no surprises in the technical data, because the manufacturer had always published disclaimer in recent months. The k-3 iii wants to be a traditional mirror reflex camera, which focuses entirely on the benefits of technology. You belong to the pentax k system, which has been working with the same bayonet for decades. Unlike the two mirror reflex competitors canon and nikon, ricoh imaging parallels does not maintain a mirrorless system (more) in parallel, which was able to dismiss the classic dslr lines in perspective.

Heartstuck the k-3 iii is a coarse prism searcher that offers about 1.05-fold enlargement. The process came here to a factor of 0.95x. These also offer the comparable competition models canon 90d and nikon d7500. For this purpose, ricoh imaging relies on an aps c sensor with a resolution of just under 26 megapixels, which now also provide other competitors in this sensor class. The chip is glazed back-side and flexibly stored on five axes. Thus, the manufacturer does not just effectively compensate for blushes, but also make pixel-shift shots possible to optimize the exploration of the camera or fully exploit. The k-3 iii achieves this by moving the sensor in four directions by a whole pixel.

Corticon.js Kummert deals with business rules for JavaScript applications

The software company progress has corticon.Js published, a tool for automated creating, testing and providing rules for javascript applications. The so-called serverless rules engine should provide rules among other than serverless functions.

Business rules engines disconnect business and program logic

A business rules engine (bre) is a software component as part of a management system for business rules (business rule management system). Bre should enable efficient execution of business rules and disconnect the business logic between the database and user interface from the process logic. This will allow users to make changes to the technical business logic without being responsible for the source code.

The new tool is apparently an offshoot of the existing offer corticon from progress for automated managing business rules. With the release, the rule management is now also available for mobile apps and iot applications. "Server-side machining" if this is not necessary, the company indicates on your website, the application can be used in the sense of classic rule engines without manual programming. Corticon.Js obviously supports a serverless architecture.

Digital masters of health

What if healthcare was fully digitized and managed by a single platform??

If data is the new oil, then health data represents a particularly noble form of this oil. The visionaries at google, facebook and microsoft want to extract more knowledge about diseases and thus conquer the growing healthcare market. Trillions of dollars are at stake. The german healthcare industry alone was worth around 370 billion euros in 2018 and is growing at an annual rate of around 4.1 percent, much faster than the gross domestic product. For digital corporations, the biology of the human body is an information-processing process that can be seen through and corrected for errors with the help of adaptive algorithms. With its power over data and computing power, silicon valley could gain a monopoly over the new, data-driven medicine – as it already does over social networks or online search.

In christian j. Meier’s thriller "k.I. – who programs destiny" (polarise, 2019), the author sketches a future in which that is already reality. A fictitious digital corporation "gaia" has monopolized medicine. Diagnoses and therapies are calculated in its cloud. Local clinicians are just onlookers. After the unexpected death of one of her patients, frankfurt doctor jette blomberg believes something is wrong with gaia’s machinery. With researcher patrick reinerts and his extremely fast-learning ai "laplace" she wants to examine patient data herself. In the process, the two heroes stumble upon a dangerous secret that puts them in the sights of brent scott, gaia’s powerful boss.

IT industry: bad numbers, but good prospects

The german it industry is economically riskier than the average of german companies. This has the information creditsafe germany in an investigation under 46.000 software producers, it service providers, data processing companies, web portals and hosting services found.

According to the study, 42 percent of companies have an insufficient liquidity, which can quickly become a problem in view of the effects of corona. All industries only have 36 percent of german companies liquiditative problems. The numbers are still from the time before the corona pandemic.

The average default risk – the likelihood that a company has to register within the next two months of bankruptcy – is 1.91 percent in the it industry, on average at 1.35 percent. A high probability of probability of three percent have 18.5 percent of it companies, but only 13 percent of companies of all industries. After all, the equity ratio looks a bit better about it companies than average.

The already poor delivery situation of nvidia’s graphics cards of the series geforce rtx 3000 alias ampere is supposed to continue in the coming weeks. This divided the european handler alternate over his dutch website. Other shops were also affected.

According to alternate, the models geforce rtx 3080 and geforce rtx 3060 ti are concerned – both nvidias’s own founders editions as well as manufacturer cards of other companies. "The chance to get a geforce rtx 3080 is virtually equal to zero", it is called. Bad, it also looks like the rtx and gtx graphics cards from the previous 2000- or 1600 series. In the case of the geforce rtx 3090 and geforce rtx 3070, there should be few open orders, but prices are also increased here.

Lull in the price comparison

A look at the price comparison shows that german handlers are currently most likely to supply manufacturer cards of the geforce rtx 3070. The prices exceed nvidia’s recommended retail price of 520 euros, however, clearly: the most favorable model currently costs 750 euros, others can quickly meet the 1000 euro brand.

Electrical care vehicles

Transport minister alexander dobindt has taker qualities. In boxing, this is the ability to plug me in without recovery. The messaging car toll, the imminent bankruptcy of the private motorway operator a1 mobile as well as the diesel-disaster have encosted a lot of force. So apparently little time for a seemingly subordinated project remained important for a future-oriented traffic system: the attribution of electric small vehicles.

In the eu jargon you would like plev (for personal light electric vehicle) and in the marketing speech "last mile scooter" or "surfer". Such products are massible. You have an electric engine, can drive faster than 6 km / h and are therefore in the meaning of the legislator motor vehicles. And for their use in the public space you need insurance, a driver’s license and a plenty – but they are fixed in the burocracy.

Vehicles with "not at least one seat"

So the federal council has the federal government on 23. September 2016 prompted the prerequisites for the operation of self-balancing vehicles and vehicles with electric motor, "which do not have at least one seat" with the participation of the land.

While the second energy summit failed to get beyond non-binding declarations of intent, environmental groups call for more consumer power

The reaction was predictable. The second energy summit, which met on monday under the leadership of chancellor merkel at the chancellor’s office in berlin, was heavily criticized from all sides. Above all, the non-governmental organizations in the environmental sector, which would have liked to be there but had not even been invited, did not spare the summit scolding.

Actually, the main topic of the summit was not really allowed to be controversial at all. It was supposed to be about energy efficiency, i.H. Ways of using electrical appliances in an energy-saving manner. This starts with the insulation of houses, continues with the abandonment of the standby mode of computers and other devices and does not stop with the use of energy-saving light bulbs.

And the mysterious circles in british grain fields are not due to ufos, but to magnetic fields, says a scientist

More and more people believe in ufos or at least that the american secret services have something to hide. The nsa at least complains about the many requests for documents under the freedom of information act. And in great britain, a scientist claims to have found a new explanation for the circles in grain fields, which some consider to be signs of ufos and aliens.

The nsa is plagued by ufo-curious people

The nsa – popularly known as the no such agency because of its secrecy – complains about problems. Hundreds of written requests for disclosure of documents pertaining to ufos eventually paralyzed the agency’s entire operation, says pamela philips, who is in charge of processing freedom of information act requests at the nsa.

Kurdish guerrilla resistance holds; syria condemns militant action; religious extremists in alliance with turkic armed forces make disgraceful headlines

For exactly two weeks, the turkish joint operation olive branch has been running in northern syria. Even before that, there had been sporadic attacks on afrin; the presence of the pyd "terrorists" to clean – regardless of the fact that the region is located on the territory of another state. But here the turkic president thinks in lines from old ottoman maps. Contemporary borders interest him less.
