Megabar expanding/shrinking issue and epilepsy

Steps to reproduce:
update to the new Firefox 75 version
use the address bar

Actual results:
the expanding and shrinking of the address bar has caused triggers with my epilepsy. the sudden expanding and then when moving away from the address bar has a similar effect as a strobe light and has triggerd mild symptoms of epilepsy such as losing focus, feeling mildly dizzy, and eye studdering (eye movements like little jerks)

I want to make a point that these are mild reaction and although I don’t end up on the floor having an epileptic seizure, the effects to cause stress and triggers which could lead to that end result …

Expected results:
Disabling the new function the issues cease to happen.


Today, we will be changing the multiverse ID and removing the Gatherer card image for the card Invoke Prejudice, originally printed in 1994. The card is racist and made even worse by the multiverse ID it was unfortunately codified with years ago. There’s no place for racism in our game, nor anywhere else.

But to that point, it should never have been published nor placed in the Gatherer. And for that we are sorry. The events of the past weeks and the ongoing conversation about how we can better support people of color have caused us to examine ourselves, our actions, and our inactions. We appreciate everyone helping us to recognize when we fall short. We should have been better, we can be better, and we will be better …

Self-driving cars address only a third of crashes, according to study

The primary objective for self-driving cars, at least the ones pushed by proponents of the technology, isn’t the convenience of the driver or passenger. That is just one of the goals or even a by-product of what these autonomous vehicles bring to the table. After all, one can only sit back and relax and take one’s hands off the wheel and eyes of the road when you’re 200% sure the self-driving car can safely drive itself through any road condition or obstacle. It turns out, however, that our current autonomous driving technologies can only avoid 34% of crashes that human drivers caused …

Honor’s latest smartphone has a temperature sensor

Available with the new Honor Play 4 Pro

One of Honor’s newly announced smartphones, the Honor Play 4 Pro, is available with an infrared temperature sensor, XDA-Developers reports. A video shared by the company’s official Weibo account shows the handset displaying temperature readings after being held up to people’s faces and wrists. The phones were announced in China, and there’s currently no word of an international release.

A temperature sensor would normally sound like a niche smartphone feature, but in the era of a pandemic when a high temperature could be a sign of being ill with COVID-19, it could be a helpful tool to have on hand. Of course, its usefulness depends on how accurate it is. Honor says that the sensor works between temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius and 100 degrees Celsius (roughly -4 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit), which is more than enough to cover the human body’s range of potential temperatures, and that it can sense temperatures down to the tenth of a degree …

Lenovo is certifying its Think workstations to run Linux

Lenovo announced that it’s certifying its entire lineup of ThinkPad and ThinkStation workstation PCs to run Linux. While you’ve always been able to install Linux on a ThinkPad, this change simply means that you won’t have to worry about any kind of compatibility issues.

Lenovo is promising end-to-end support when running Linux on a Think workstation, such as the P1 or P53. You’ll be able to get security patches, driver updates, firmware updates, and BIOS updates. The company also says that it will upstream drivers to the Linux kernel, so everything should work right away …

The two Linux distributions that are officially supported are Ubuntu and Red Hat, including Fedora and more. Lenovo also offers an OEM version of Ubuntu LTS, which promises to be more secure and stable than the more popular version of Ubuntu. You can also get the ThinkPad P53 and P1 Gen 2 pre-installed with Fedora.


東芝は2020年6月3日、自動車やドローンなどの安全性向上や自動走行・自律飛行に用いる2つのAI(人工知能)技術で世界最高精度を達成したと発表した。1つは、カメラと慣性センサーの組み合わせだけで自車両の動きを高精度に推定する「自車両の動き推定AI」で、もう1つはさまざまな交通シーンで周辺車両の将来の動きを予測する「他車両の動き予測AI」。公開データを用いた実験により、推定結果と実距離の差の絶対値の平均である推定誤差について、従来技術と比較してそれぞれ40%削減したという。今後は、公道など実際の環境での評価を行い、2023年度の実用化を目指すとしている …

Vegetarians are more likely to suffer from depression than meat eaters, study suggests

Those with mental health conditions may adopt a plant-based diet due to the perception that it is healthier

Researchers in the US reviewed 18 studies published from 1997 to 2019 which examined the relationship between mental health and eating meat on a total of 160,257 people.

The authors cited one study from 2012 which suggested that a vegetarian diet might be chosen by some with mental disorders “as a form of safety or self-protective behaviour” due to the perception that plant-based diets are healthier …

He was part of Amazon’s coronavirus hiring spree. Two weeks later he was dead

When Harry Sentoso got called back to work at an Amazon delivery center in Irvine, Calif., in late March, he was excited.

He had been working in Amazon warehouses on and off for two years, always hoping to get a full-time position but always laid off after seasonal demand died down. Just a few weeks earlier, at the beginning of March, his bosses had told him they didn’t need him anymore. He had spent most of the month cooped up at home in Walnut, looking for other work …

‘Beyond stupid’: Linus Torvalds trashes 5.8 Linux kernel patch over opt-in Intel CPU bug mitigation

AWS engineers given a dressing-down after proposing fix for ‘paranoid’ tasks

Linus Torvalds has removed a patch in the next release of the Linux kernel intended to provide additional opt-in mitigation of attacks against the L1 data (L1D) CPU cache.

The patch from AWS engineer Balbir Singh was to provide “an opt-in (prctl driven) mechanism to flush the L1D cache on context switch. The goal is to allow tasks that are paranoid due to the recent snoop-assisted data sampling vulnerabilities, to flush their L1D on being switched out. This protects their data from being snooped or leaked via side channels after the task has context switched out.” …
