No. 3 Maryland defeated Wisconsin 63-60 on a long three-pointer by point guard Melo Trimble with 1.2 seconds remaining.Trimble’s triple came after Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig buried a three of a his own to knot the score at 60. Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon elected not to signal for a timeout, instead trusting his All-American point guard to win the game.Good decision.  That shot is the definition of long range. Note ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich saying “Too late” in the background. Dakich thought Trimble took too long before trying to attack.Looks like he knew what he was doing.last_img

first_img Explore further Taxation minister Carsten Lauritzen says Airbnb “has committed to report data so their hosts pay taxes.” He says Airbnb will inform Danish taxation authorities of the number of renting days and its users’ total income.The deal announced Thursday closes a loophole in which hosts had to report to tax authorities on a voluntary basis.Patrick Robinson, director of Airbnb’s Public Policy in Europe, said it “will allow that to be fairly and clearly regulated.”Danish political parties on Tuesday agreed to limit room-rental services to a maximum of 70 days a year per property. Denmark says online room-rental platform Airbnb will start to automatically report its users’ deals to taxation authorities, the first country to do so.

Legendary Persecuted CodeBreaker Alan Turing Finally Recognized for His Achievements

Posted on by

first_imgIf it weren’t for the legendary World War II code-breaker Alan Turing, the outcome for the Allied forces might have looked very different. The mathematician and computer scientist has been widely credited with hastening the end of the war, thanks to his work decoding German naval messages. But only seven years after the end the war, Turing, who was gay, was convicted of “gross indecency” for his relationship with a 19-year-old man. Turing wasn’t formally pardoned until 2014. Now, 65 years after Turing’s death, the Bank of England is recognizing the trailblazer’s contributions to science and technology by featuring his face on the brand-new design of their 50-pound note. “It was nothing short of a tragedy how a country he had served with such distinction treated him after the war, persecuting him for his homosexuality,” said Demis Hassabis, a British artificial intelligence (AI) researcher, at the unveiling ceremony in Manchester. “That’s why it’s wonderful to see Turing on the note, as a powerful symbol of the long overdue recognition he deserves.” Not only did Turing’s contributions to math and computer science aid the Allied war effort, they also laid the foundations for modern computers. In his 1936 paper titled “On Computable Numbers,” Turing invented the concept of algorithms, sets of instructions that dictate how computers operate, BBC reported. He was also one of the earliest computer scientists to begin thinking about AI. His ‘Turing test’ is still used to determine whether a machine is “intelligent” or not. “As the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, as well as a war hero, Alan Turing’s contributions were far ranging and path breaking,” Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, said in a statement. “Turing is a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand.” The new banknote won’t just feature Turing’s face. It will also include a ticker tape of binary code that spells out his birthday (June 23, 1912), a depiction of the machine he used to help break the German Enigma code, and his signature. Turing wasn’t the only scientist considered for this new note. In total, 989 scientists were nominated. The short list included Rosalind Franklin, Stephen Hawking and Adam Lovelace, among others.
