Fox News pundit complains about Ilhan Omar quoting Trump's 'grab 'em by the p****' remark
A Fox News pundit has complained that Ilhan Omar used profanity when quoting Donald Trump in response to a series of racist tweets he directed at the Democratic congresswoman.Dana Perino, a former White House secretary under George W Bush, defended Mr Trump's original statements and argued that he "didn't make them on live television at five o'clock". Ms Perino was referring to a number of the US president's controversial remarks quoted by Ms Omar, including the "grab 'em by the p****" line he said in an interview with Access Hollywood in 2005. Ms Omar also quoted Mr Trump reportedly saying last year that people were coming to the US from "s***hole countries". It came after the US president tweeted at the weekend that some Democratic congresswomen should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".While the US president did not name the targets of his attack, the context of his tweet made it clear it was aimed at a group of four progressive Democratic women of colour known as "the squad".The four - Ms Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - spoke out against Mr Trump's remarks at a press conference in Washington on Monday.Ms Omar claimed that the US president's racist attacks were a "distraction" from more important issues and sought to divide Americans."This is a

Ryzen 3000 Review: AMD's 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X conquers its past
Our review of AMD's 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X CPU, in five words:

Damn, this CPU is fast.

But keep reading, because the Ryzen 9 3900X is likely as significant, and likely as game-changing, as AMD's original K7 Athlon-series of CPUs that crossed the 1GHz line first, or its Athlon 64 CPU that ushered in 64-bit computing in a desktop PC.

You'd think the Ryzen 9 3900X would have a hard time achieving the same greatness. It's true that it doesn't quite shake all the gaming-performance bugaboos of past generations. But we think when the dust settles, the CPU series will easily be a first-ballot, CPU hall of fame entry.

AMD AMD said it has improved its floating point performance by 2X on its Ryzen 3000 series of CPUs.

Bone marrow transplants are a common treatment for certain conditions related to the blood, but the patient's immune system can often react badly to the foreign cells and attack them. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) may help, but they too can be cleared out by immune cells. Now, a Harvard team has shown that coating MSCs in a thin hydrogel can protect them, making bone marrow transplants more successful.

How ASLR protects Linux systems from buffer overflow attacks
Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) is a memory-protection process for operating systems that guards against buffer-overflow attacks. It helps to ensure that the memory addresses associated with running processes on systems are not predictable, thus flaws or vulnerabilities associated with these processes will be more difficult to exploit.

ASLR is used today on Linux, Windows, and MacOS systems. It was first implemented on Linux in 2005. In 2007, the technique was deployed on Microsoft Windows and MacOS. While ASLR provides the same function on each of these operating systems, it is implemented differently on each one.

The effectiveness of ASLR is dependent on the entirety of the address space layout remaining unknown to the attacker. In addition, only executables that are compiled as Position Independent Executable (PIE) programs will be able to claim the maximum protection from ASLR technique because all sections of the code will be loaded at random locations. PIE machine code will execute properly regardless of its absolute address.
