Diesel scandal: former audi chef stadler in court

Rupert Stadler comes in a gray Mercedes to the Audi process. It is a symbolic picture: He is no longer the Audi boss, in whose time the brand sales success celebrated and several years more cars sold as Mercedes-Benz. In between are the diesel scandal, a multi-month detention and stadler outward throw.

The hall in which the district court of Munchen begins on Wednesday, to negotiate the fraud race against Stadler and three co-defendants, the 57-year-old demonstratively relaxes relaxed. In the hall in the Prison Stadelheim Stadelheim is about much. Legally "Fraud, indirect misconception and punishable advertising" – So the prosecutor has already been communicated in summer. Theoretically, the defendants threaten to a conviction of up to ten years of prison.


And it’s about the workup of the diesel scandal. Even before the prosecutor can begin to read more than 90 pages comprehensive indictment, the legal plank begins: Stadler’s defender is a request for information. He wants to know if from the district of the judges, father and spheres of someone or his partner since 2009 cars have driven cars developed by Audi developed engines. Background is a possible bias.

Development environment: qt creator 5.0 builds applications in the docker container

Two months after the last 4.X version is now the first beta of QT Creator 5.0 appeared. The release of the development environment tailored to the C ++ development brings with the connection to docker and the interaction with clangd as a backend for C / C ++ two innovations, which are first marked as experimental.

After the 4 Series of IDE pays for five years, the version jump should be 5.x not the last for this year, since in winter already QT Creator 6.0 is planned. Background is the conversion to Semantic Version (Semver) in the context of the roadmap for 2021. The current release is on the fresh version 6 published fresh as a beta.2 of the Qt Framework designed.

Language model and work in the container

In the medium term, Clangd as a Language Server in conjunction with the Language Server Protocol (LSP) should take code understatement and thus replace the previous LiblClang-based approach. QT Creator 5.0 offers a first implementation, which, however, is currently marked as experimentally and is not fully implemented. So far, the car resistance is still missing, and for some functions a development build of clangd is required. Who liked clangd as a language server, must first use use clangd under Tools | Options | C ++ | Activate Clangd.

Chef of the manned nasa space should have informed boeing unlauter

In mid-May, Douglas Loverro, until then head of the manned space travel of NASA, resigned surprisingly. The time was Brisant: in the following week he had to celebrate with the resumption of astronauts of US floor from the big success of his NASA career. Now it became known why Loverro had to go: he should have attached Boeing internal information for an ongoing tender.

Several companies, including Boeing, had applied for a coarse order of NASA for Mondlandevehikel. Finally, Donald Trump wants the US to be in his every 2. Pay back to the moon. But Boeing tried to renew already submitted documents after expired deadline. Because the request for Boeings strikingly concerned a NASA-internal discussion, the alarm bells shrill in the room ride agency.

The suspicion of Boeing has obtained insider information from NASA and try to exploit this, solve an investigation of the NASA Court of Auditors. As the Washington Post reported, the track leaded to a conversation between Loverro and Boeings Space Chief Jim Chilton. Then Loverro, NASA’s head of manned space travel, was forced to jerk just before the first US start.

Data analysis: varadas workload analyzer for presto goes open source

Varada, a provider of Big Data analytics software, has made its Workload Analyzer for Presto open source. The tool is compatible with the query engine Presto, a project originally founded by Facebook, which today consists of PrestoDB and Trino (the former PrestoSQL).

Data virtualization with the distributed query engine

Presto, a distributed SQL query engine, can be used to query data from a variety of sources, including Kafka, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MySQL. The engine is designed for particularly coarse petabyte data sets and processes data at the storage location – in coarse clusters and cloud environments this plays a role.

Monitor workloads in Presto clusters

The query engine and its associated tool for examining workloads in Presto clusters are currently used primarily in data-driven projects and enterprises, according to Varada. The distributed query engine can be used to query raw data from various sources in an unmodeled fashion, and the entire so-called data lake can then be examined using PrestoDB and Trino, according to the tool vendor.

Despite record penalty: google shopping continues to discriminate competitors

The search results for shopping on Google still usually drove directly to providers and disadvantages thereby competitors offering price comparisons. This resulted in a study of business consultancy Lademann Associates. Google had already received a record penalty for about three years ago because of the handling of such competitors.

Less than one percent of the traffic was directed by Google to a shopping page as Idealo or Kelkoo, the Financial Times writes about the investigation. 10.5 billion clicks of 25 competitors have been viewed.

Litigation leads to cleavage

Three years ago, Google had praised after a litigation – and paid a € 2.42 billion of competition that the EU Commission had filed. The shopping area has been offset from alphabet as a subsidiary of Alphabet. Since then, this should offer equally mammals with competitors around the ad places. "We give the shopping comparison services the same possibility to display product displays of handlers on Google search pages like Google Shopping", struck it. Competitors immediately criticized that it would be about paying the places and they are not free. The search engine service countered, the Commission urged that all are treated equally, which is the same with this procedure.

Chrome adapted for arm macs, but crashes

Google this week released Chrome 87, the first native application for Apple’s M1 chips ("Apple Silicon") customized version of its browser published. With it the work is to go again somewhat more briskly, because Apple’s x86-ubersetzungsengine Rosetta 2 is no longer necessary. However, it now turns out that the search engine giant did not test adequately: Users with ARM Macs report comprehensible crashes, which Google has now also acknowledged. This happened "unexpected" in operation.

Exactly how the error occurred remained unclear at first. Apple had been providing developers with their own Developer Transition Kits (DTKs) since the summer, with which code could be extensively tested; as of this week, the Intel Macs are now officially on the market. However, the M1 Chrome browser is currently so unstable that it is difficult to run it continuously. Google therefore calls a radical workaround: users should at best return to the Intel version of Chrome 87. This is done via the Chrome download page, if you click there on "Mac with Intel chip" click.

Fix "soon" available

Alternatively, affected users can first try to enable Bluetooth support for Chrome 87 on their M1 Mac; apparently the crash bug has something to do with it. To do this, users should go to the system settings under "Privacy" Mark Chrome as Bluetooth-accessible and restart the browser. However, not all users were allowed to want that – also for privacy reasons. As Chrome support manager Craig Tumblison further writes, the Chrome team has already "a bug fix identified" and will "soon" make available.

Bayern: new software against cybercriminalitat should bring light into the darknet

With a new software from the Netherlands, Bayern’s investigators want to bring light into the so-called Darknet and create criminals the craft. Minister of Justice Georg Iron (CSU) and the Dutch research company TNO signed a cooperation agreement on Monday. "The Free State is determined against Cybercrime", said Iron rich.

There are numerous legal offers such as Facebook or the BBC, which with .ONION URL can be reached – but also criminal marketplaces for trade with drugs, weapons, pictures of child abuse and similar.

What is where to find in the Darknet?

"Technique changes our world rapidly; Criminals quickly recognize new opportunities as they offer the Dark Web", said Tno Director National Security, Krishna Taneja. "In order to counteract these threats, innovations are required."
