Artificial eye dominance may speed reading for people with dyslexia

I have to admit that my only experience of dyslexia is via family members. My youngest daughter has just started high school, and she's struggling with all the reading associated with three languages, an issue that bleeds over into all the other subjects. In testing, she scores high on reading comprehension but really low on reading speed. My oldest son reads and reads and reads... but cannot write worth a damn. Both have trouble internalizing spelling rules and multiplication tables.

These all standard symptoms of dyslexia. Dyslexia is a spectrum disorder, one that covers many aspects of reading and writing, so when people start touting single causes, my skepticism goes into overdrive. But it turns out that new research on its causes is reasonably solid, and it raises some interesting questions.

Your brain in the mirror

When the brain creates an image, it's faced with a problem. The two eyes report two images that are extremely similar, but shifted with respect to each other. The displacement is awesome, because it provides us with better depth perception. However, in the absence of a large amount of alcohol, the brain still has to decide on a single coherent image so it has something to present to our consciousness. To do that, the two images are melded into one, which is fine for displacement. But for mirror images, the brain must choose a single image.

Gran Turismo Sport review: A brilliant, but very new, direction for the series

Ars Technica - 7 hours 22 min ago

Gran Turismo Sport is a great racing game. What it's not is a simple PS4 port of the last GT game. Almost everything about this latest release is different from every game that has come before it in the series. There are way fewer selectable cars than the competition (and previous GT games). There aren't many tracks. You won't spend hours buying new parts for your car or taking it for an oil change or a car wash. Gran Turismo Sport might not be the world’s most accurate driving simulation, but it’s fun—a lot of fun, particularly with a steering wheel. And refreshingly, it doesn't try to make you open your wallet to unlock anything.

But if racing against other humans online isn't something you care for, GTS is not the game for you. Unlike GT games of old, GTS is all about racing online, and maybe—just maybe—becoming a real racing driver at the end.

Key e-mail from feds got caught in body-cam maker’s spam filter

Axon, the largest manufacturer of body-worn cameras, said Thursday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it had missed e-mails from the agency due to "miscommunication issues."

According to Bloomberg, the snafu was due to an e-mail that the SEC sent on August 10 to the company’s new chief financial officer—however those messages were quarantined in a spam filter, and he seemingly did not see them.

The SEC was seeking clarification about the company’s financial disclosures, particularly surrounding its 2016 financial report and its first quarter 2017 report.

One year Anniversary of Dyn DDOS, (Fri, Oct 20th)

SANS Internet Storm Center - 15 hours 25 min ago
Today,  October 21st, marks the one year anniversary of the DDOS attack on Dyn. The attack impacted Dyn's DNS service, and caused degradation, or inavailability of several popular websites, including Airbnb, BBC, CNN, Paypal and many others.  The attack was attributed to the Mirai botnet of compromised Internet of Things (IoT) devices, but despite numerous investigations, the attack was not definitively attributed to any one perpetrator or group.  It did, however, highlight the fragility of the underlying Internet infrastructure, and sent a lot of service providers on a quest to shore up their pieces of that infrastructure.

Report: Twitter CEO took a Russian impostor’s bait in 2016

As the public learns more about confirmed Russian troll accounts on social media platforms over the past few years, reporters have begun digging into any ties the sham accounts may have with major political or tech voices. The Daily Beast found a pretty big one on Friday, when it confirmed via Internet archives that Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey unwittingly retweeted posts from a phony Black Lives Matter advocate.

In fact, the example Daily Beast reporter Ben Collins found was a single account, @crystal1johnson, getting two juicy retweets from Twitter's very own "@jack." The discovered posts (which are now archive-only, thanks to the account being deleted in August) date back to March 2016. Both revolve around black identity in the United States.

The first congratulated musician and actor Rihanna for winning a Humanitarian of the Year award from Harvard (dead link here, proof of its content here). The second shared a now-dead image of what may have been children of different races having fun together, with the description reading, "Nobody is born a racist. This picture is so sweet! Teach your children to judge others by the kind of person they are inside." (Archived link of Dorsey's retweet [RT], found by Collins, is here.)
