An 11-year-old child tamper with hacking the election voting system in 10 minutes

Once a year, the world's largest international conference on "hacking" "DEF CON" was held in Las Vegas. Election system hacking contest (DEFCON Voting Machine Hacking Village) was held this year (August 9 to 12 August), an 11-year-old child hacked the replication site of the election system in less than 10 minutes and the result of voting I was able to change it. A total of thirty boys and girls succeeded in hacking the election system within 30 minutes of the 50 participants in the white hacker development program from 8 to 16 years old. In this "DEFCON Voting Machine Hacking Village", it was exactly the same replica as the on-line voting system actually used for voting by Florida Election Committee. After receiving guidance from Mr. Nico Shell, co-founder of white hacker development program "r00tz Asylum", 50 children started hacking election system all at once. Mr. Shell points out the risk that online voting system will be hacked, saying, "This system is capable of hacking in 30 minutes even for 8-year old children, this fact is nothing but negligence of society." doing. On the other hand, a nonprofit security group (NASS) says, "Because the actual election system uses its own network and a custom built database, complete replication is extremely difficult and the difficulty of hacking the system is different." I am clarifying my opinion. Mr. Shell said, "The NASS statement makes me feel that the election management committee does not take the results seriously.The site used for the hacking demonstration may be a replica, but children are exploiting it The vulnerability is not a replica but a real thing.

Life's wisdom learned in the sandbox "not to shake"

Do not shake whatever you share, everything you do not do, do not hurt people, do not hurt people, always use what you use, always clean up yourself if you do, If you hurt someone, "I am sorry", washing my hands before meals, making my feelings thinking wonderful. It is "Truth and rule to live" that I remember by repeatedly listening from parents, kindergarten teachers, neighborhood aunts, older friends, etc. when I was young. Robert Fulgum wrote "All the wisdom necessary for life has been learned in the kindergarten sandbox" as "a wonderful book" on the 2004 blog. I bought it at a secondhand bookstore at the time at the end of Japan's high growth era, 1990 release. There is a memory that social structure and human relations became complicated, and my feelings caught in obsession became easy. We were learning the truth and wisdom of life through "play" from a young age. "Illegal" "corruption" that the modern adults forgotten, such as "not to skim", "not to hit people" "to share with everyone" "to hurt someone" is sorry " "Tampering" "power hurdling" "sexual harassment" incident, you should have known without confirmation by law. Even if you acquire "advanced education" at universities and others, you will not be able to understand the wisdom of life you learned in the sandbox, such as "Do not train" or "Mysterious" There is no culture or wisdom superior to words "Words". My blog (kokai.jp) also exceeds 10 million page views, and has done "change permalink" which is disadvantageous. Remember to try new things, I would like to "restart" by introducing AMP as well.

Knit a scarf in 5 minutes by bike (Cyclo Knitter)

George Barratt-Jones, who studied at the Design Academy · Eindhoven (DAE) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, invented Cyclo Knitter which can knit a scarf in 5 minutes by a bicycle pedal. This cyclone / knitter is a fun machine that scarves (mufflers) knit with scarf (muffler) knitting while wearing a train while waiting for the train while enduring the cold (^ ^) Generally speaking, when design major, fashion design, Interior design, product design etc, you can understand vaguely what you learn just by listening to your name. However, in DAE, major names such as Man and Well-being (Man and Health), Man and Mobility (People and Mobility), Man and Leisure (People and Leisure), and other major names are conceptual. It is not a design with things, but firstly there are people (users and designers), we observe the relationship between that person and something (well-being, mobility etc) and design some product from there. Cyclonic · Nitta is interesting because the scarf (muffler) knitting automatically concept while warming in cold waiting time. It is fun to have knitting while training it while putting it in a fitness club etc (^ ^) The IMD2018 worldwide competitiveness of the Netherlands was ranked 15th in 2015, but ranked up to 4th in 2018 .

Invention of a teens scientist to help wound healing (TED: Anushka Naiknaware)

Anushka Naiknaware, who lives in Portland, Oregon, United States, invented a "smart bandage / gauze" that can detect the degree of wetness of the wound and help healthcare workers at age 13. Her invention was approved by Google Science Fair 2016, became the youngest winner (Lego Education Builder Award) and earned a scholarship of $ 15,000. It is a talk at her TEDwomen 2017. It is said that my parents took me to a local science museum when I was 3-4 years old. She likes the exhibits in it, she seems to have been particularly interested in inventions of chemistry. As knowledge of chemistry, biology etc increases, I am fascinated by science field and I like it. Her invention uses a fractal pattern using graphene nanoparticles to detect the "degree of wetness of a wound" and produces a biocompatible thin print sensor informing medical staff if gauze replacement is necessary Did. It can also be applied to people with chronic wounds (pdf) that are relatively long and can help wound healing.

In 2006, the scale has doubled as a result of Mr. Warren Buffett's contribution of $ 30 billion. In the annual letter announced on February 13, "I will answer as frankly as I can, so I hope that you will be optimistic just like we are when you finish reading" I am talking. The sixth question "What influence does President Cardinal's policy have on the Foundation's activities?" I feel uneasy about the world view of America First (US First Principle) because the United States It does not mean that you should not take care of your people.The problem is "How can you do it best?" I believe that it has historically proven that all people, including Americans, will benefit by deeply engaging and cooperating not to draw hands from the world situation. Even if we measure the policy of the government with only the benefits that Americans receive, I think that facing the world is a prudent investment. " Mr. Melinda also wishes that "When the current president speaks and tweets, it wishes more respectful respect to people, especially women, equality is an important national principle, each individual's dignity Is part of the American spirit regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender.The president shows the model and is responsible for improving the status of all Americans through statements and policies.
