68 years ago: First atomic bomb tested in the Soviet Union. Cloak, dagger and scientific brilliance: The making of the Soviet atom bomb

On Aug. 29, 1949 the first Soviet atomic bomb was successfully tested at the Semipalatinsk test site (the territory of modern Kazakhstan) - 20 km in diameter. It was called “RDS-1” (short for "jet engine special"). The design was very similar to the first U.S.-made "Fat Man" plutonium bomb. In 1950, nine more RDS-1 atomic bombs were made. By March 1951, the Soviet Union possessed 15 plutonium nuclear bomb of this type. On Aug. 5, 1963 a treaty banning nuclear weapons testing in the atmosphere, in outer space, and underwater - also known as the "Moscow Treaty" - was signed in the Russian capital. The USSR, U.S., and UK were party to the agreement. Today, 131 states adhere to this treaty.

Deep State Banishes Bannon And Company

My take on Steve Bannon’s recent firing is at odds with the celebratory tone I detect from others, especially those claiming it’s a victory for decent people. It was nothing of the sort, and Bannon wasn’t banished for any of the reasons we’ve read about in mainstream media accounts.

Spain: Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

When the Catalans goes to the polls Oct. 1, much more than independence for Spain’s restive province will be at stake. In many ways the vote will be a sounding board for Spain’s future, but it is also a test of whether the European Union—divided between north and south, east and west—can long endure.

Despite privacy outrage, AccuWeather still shares precise location data with ad firms

AccuWeather is still sending precise geolocation data to a third-party advertiser, ZDNet can confirm, despite updating its app earlier this week to remove a feature that collected user's location data without their permission.

In case you missed it, AccuWeather was until this week sending the near-precise location of its iPhone app users to Reveal Mobile, a data monetization firm -- even when location sharing was switched off. Security researcher Will Strafach, who first reported the issue, also accused the company of sharing a user's precise GPS coordinates under the guise of providing local weather alerts.

The news sparked outrage and anger. AccuWeather responded with a forced apology, which one leading Apple critic John Gruber called a "bulls**t response."

However, tests conducted by Strafach show that the updated app, released Thursday, still shares precise geolocation data with a data monetization and advertising firm.

Tropical Storm Harvey: Dams and levee that protect Houston overflow

A levee south of Houston has been breached and two reservoir dams that protect the centre of the city have begun overflowing as floodwaters continue to rise following storm Harvey.

Brazoria County authorities warned residents on Tuesday to "get out now!" after a levee at Columbia Lakes began overflowing following five consecutive days of heavy rain.

Engineers began releasing water from the 70-year-old Addicks and Barker reservoirs on Monday to ease the strain on the dams.

But the releases were not enough to relieve the pressure after one of the heaviest downpours in US history, the Army Corps of Engineers said.

Flood-Damaged Documents, Books May Be Salvageable with Electron Beam Technology

Documents, books and similar items soaked and muddied in the potentially sewage-laden flood waters produced by Hurricane Harvey may be salvageable with the use of electronic beam technology.

“This technology has been used around the world to save documents and paintings that otherwise would be lost,” said Dr. Suresh Pillai, director of the National Center for Electron Beam Research, part of Texas A&M AgriLife Research, College Station.

Pillai said the technology is useful for killing mold, fungus and bacteria that invade moist environments. Irradiation has been used worldwide to save documents such as ancient Orthodox Christian icons in Romania, cultural artifacts in Brazil and religious sculptures in France.

Study: ISPs Can Use IOT Devices to Spy on You

Noah Apthorpe at Princeton University set up a fake home, complete with seven real internet-connected devices, in the hopes of finding out what they might reveal about their users.

Apthorpe and other researchers found that it was notably trivial for an ISP to identify and track usage of numerous devices around the home, which could (if it's not already) be used to make the carrier even more money off of your everyday behavior. The study found that ISPs could track a user’s sleep patterns by detecting when sleep trackers accessed to the internet, or observe when a home camera detected movement or when someone is watching a live video feed.
