I need a Team for a Project !



We're building a team on Gusher: https://www.gusher.co/startups/betbluff In order to develop the commercial social version of Betbluff. Betbluff is a new online betting skill game: Betbluff (Poker without cards). Betbluff is the only online gambling game in the world that has no random decision element ! No cards ! And the player’s hand is a number ! It uses chips only ! Here's the video of our basic online demo:

Experienced Composer + Free Track Library
Hi everyone, My name is Iliya Ryakhovskiy and I have been writing music for quite some time now. Throughout the years I have completed 100's of compositions with over 600 music related orders for clients all around the world. I am excited to be here where I can collaborate with other talented individuals so that we can work together to create amazing games/projects for everyone to see. My goal is not to just add some music that fits, it is to use the right music so that it elevates your game, adds emotion and depth, enhances the story and gameplay. To use music as a tool for others to remember your game from time to time. If you are interested, come check out my website. There you can contact me or listen to what I have completed so far. I also have a page of free tracks that you can use (more added weekly). ALL of my work provides: Unique and uncopyrighted music used nowhere else but in your game. A 'WORK FOR HIRE' document where I sign off all the rights to you or your company. Every track is mixed and mastered through analogue gear. Unlimited revisions to make sure you get exactly what you want. Let me know if you have any other questions. www.ziomamusic.com Thank you.

I Am Overburdened, cracks showing
frequentHello everyone! This entry will be a bit more personal and full of rambling about game development in real life and how come making a tiny bug-fix update for a game takes a whole month. Stay awhile, because if you can put up with my whining, you are going to read some real advice The unexpected Around a month ago severe cartilage damage and bone wear (arthrosis) was diagnosed in my right wrist-bone(s). This is a permanent change. One that quite possibly will heavily affect my future I always had problems with my hand, we could call it chronic pain I guess, but it never was so frequent or so drastic that I thought something could be really wrong… In middle school, I thought it must be my hobbies. A lot of Diablo and other games plus art (both classical and digital). In university, I thought it must be my studies. My hobbies stayed with me and I started programming multiple hours daily. As an employed programmer, software became my full-time job and I thought it must be my life-style. I started pouring hours after work into game development and art daily because I really wanted to make games, not just business software. Probably you are rolling your eyes by now, that I must be crazy for not taking care of myself, but I’m pretty sure if you are reading this you may have a similar history and of course I always did everything I could to heal. I always took sufficient rest, sometimes totally stopping these activities for a few days taking medicinal products to recover, plus in the last few years, I used various supporters to help my hands during work. I never experienced wild long-lasting pains. Except for 5 weeks ago. I heard it called pianist disease by a Doc and it is fairly common amongst musicians, artists, programmers, essentially anyone using their fingers and wrists excessively for work. I’ve been doing physiotherapy and taking medication during the last month besides keeping my hand in a splint and barely using it at all. It is better now. I only experience pain if I disobey the “try not to use your right hand!” rule Doctors told me that the pain will become manageable, but surgery seems to be necessary if I want to use it again for work… Yep, you guessed it well. Even though I’m right-handed (was?) and relatively fast at typing (was!) writing this entry took me a while because I used my left hand only. That is how a tiny bug-fix update takes a month Now onto the advice part: Life will throw unexpected things at you. Even if you are at a point where everything seems to click and nothing can stop you, I’m pretty sure there is something that can. Take care of yourself and if you happen to experience similar things consult with a doctor to see if you can prevent bigger problems down the line. The update Since players discovered some glaring issues lately and I just managed to repair a few long-standing problems, I decided to put out a build with important fixes in it ASAP as version 1.2.4. Not saved Sadly the path was not “ensured” (existence of directories) in all cases when saving the game. I estimate, that this could affect quite a few people, but not many reported it so far on any of the channels for the game. I hope this means it worked for most people and not many run into it If you did lose a save I’m really sorry. Please accept my apology and know that now it is fixed and works as intended. Hallucinated boss Some items in the game are totally insane and their combinations, well let just say they can lead to weird outcomes One of these is the “Carnival Mask” which can turn monsters into hallucinations. It cannot be triggered on the boss level, as there are no other monsters around the boss itself. Except when you have an item on you which can summon monsters in certain situations. Mix in some chemical X and bang! The boss can easily turn into a hallucination, preventing the player from completing the run. Funny thing is that I already had a configuration coded for items to optionally disable them against certain enemy types (e.g.: the boss), but I probably thought this could not happen. Fixed! Left-handed Due to the underlying technology I used the game could not support left-handed mouse usage (left and right buttons switched in the operating system). I swapped out parts of the tech and fixed this problem. As you can guess I only realized the existence of the issue when I myself started using my mouse in this mode To all the left-handed people in the world who would have loved playing I Am Overburdened with a mouse: I’m sorry for not realizing this before! Focus on what you are doing! There were some reports about the game occasionally capturing mouse input even if its window is not in focus. I tried fixing this before, but I never had the complete picture about what is going wrong. I’m still not sure if it is fully fixed, but I could reproduce a case when it occurred and with the input tech change, I could correct this problem too. Special thanks to all the community members who reported and helped in the diagnostics of these issues. Is this the end?! This slowed me to a crawl (no pun intended), but there is no way I’m stopping game development I just wasn’t prepared for it. Neither physically nor mentally. It will take some time getting used to it, but my left-hand dexterity is getting better each day and hopefully, surgery will further improve the state of things later on. It is uncertain now how long it will take, but I will follow through my plans and deliver the content expansion pack for I Am Overburdened. Thank you very much for reading my post and for all your support. Take care!

IBM Gives Cancer-Killing Drug AI Project To the Open Source Community
IBM has released three artificial intelligence (AI) projects tailored to take on the challenge of curing cancer to the open-source community. ZDNet reports: The first project, dubbed PaccMann -- not to be confused with the popular Pac-Man computer game -- is described as the "Prediction of anticancer compound sensitivity with Multi-modal attention-based neural networks." IBM is working on the PaccMann algorithm to automatically analyze chemical compounds and predict which are the most likely to fight cancer strains, which could potentially streamline this process. The ML algorithm exploits data on gene expression as well as the molecular structures of chemical compounds. IBM says that by identifying potential anti-cancer compounds earlier, this can cut the costs associated with drug development. The second project is called "Interaction Network infErence from vectoR representATions of words," otherwise known as INtERAcT. This tool is a particularly interesting one given its automatic extraction of data from valuable scientific papers related to our understanding of cancer. INtERAcT aims to make the academic side of research less of a burden by automatically extracting information from these papers. At the moment, the tool is being tested on extracting data related to protein-protein interactions -- an area of study which has been marked as a potential cause of the disruption of biological processes in diseases including cancer. The third and final project is "pathway-induced multiple kernel learning," or PIMKL. This algorithm utilizes datasets describing what we currently know when it comes to molecular interactions in order to predict the progression of cancer and potential relapses in patients. PIMKL uses what is known as multiple kernel learning to identify molecular pathways crucial for categorizing patients, giving healthcare professionals an opportunity to individualize and tailor treatment plans.<p><div class="share_submission" style="position:relative;"> <a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=IBM+Gives+Cancer-Killing+Drug+AI+Project+To+the+Open+Source+Community%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2YkJctT"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fscience.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F19%2F07%2F23%2F228254%2Fibm-gives-cancer-killing-drug-ai-project-to-the-open-source-community%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=https://science.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/228254/ibm-gives-cancer-killing-drug-ai-project-to-the-open-source-community?utm_source=slashdot&amp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"><img src="https://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"/></a> </div></p><p><a href="https://science.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/228254/ibm-gives-cancer-killing-drug-ai-project-to-the-open-source-community?utm_source=rss1.0moreanon&amp;utm_medium=feed">Read more of this story</a> at Slashdot.</p><iframe src="https://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discuss&amp;id=14424316&amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"></iframe><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/VE3ih3ZymhI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

UPS Is Launching a Drone Delivery Service In the US
The United Parcel Service (UPS) announced it has submitted an application to the FAA to operate commercial delivery drones in the U.S., through a new subsidiary called UPS Flight Forward. Quartz reports: The company has been working closely with the FAA over the last year; in 2018, the agency launched a program to test out drones in a range of autonomous flying situations, and UPS was one of the accepted applicants. It's been couriering lab samples around the WakeMed hospital campus in Raleigh, North Carolina, in partnership with the drone startup Matternet. Bala Ganesh, head of UPS's advanced technology group, says that once the FAA has certified the new company, it plans to build upon the work it's been doing in healthcare deliveries. UPS is hoping to get its certification later this year, at which point Ganesh says the company will expand its drone activities in three ways. First, it wants to replicate the work it's done at WakeMed at other large medical facilities that need lab work ferried around as quickly as possible. It then wants to begin flying farther, using autonomous drones to potentially fly between five and ten miles from their point of origin. (Right now, most drone operations in the US need to be conducted within the line of sight of a pilot.) After that's been mastered, UPS wants to fly its drones at night. UPS doesn't plan, at least for the near future, to offer drone deliveries to regular customers, so don't expect to be getting your next online order delivered to your house by drone. For now, it's concentrating on small payloads for healthcare<p><div class="share_submission" style="position:relative;"> <a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=UPS+Is+Launching+a+Drone+Delivery+Service+In+the+US%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2Yf1WLp"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F19%2F07%2F23%2F2121220%2Fups-is-launching-a-drone-delivery-service-in-the-us%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/2121220/ups-is-launching-a-drone-delivery-service-in-the-us?utm_source=slashdot&amp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"><img src="https://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"/></a> </div></p><p><a href="https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/2121220/ups-is-launching-a-drone-delivery-service-in-the-us?utm_source=rss1.0moreanon&amp;utm_medium=feed">Read more of this story</a> at Slashdot.</p><iframe src="https://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discuss&amp;id=14424252&amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"></iframe><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/c9F1tWSG2I8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Air Travelers May Have To Pay Carbon Charge To Offset Emissions
Air passengers may have to pay an extra "carbon charge" on flights as part of a UK government initiative to reduce CO2 emissions and tackle the climate crisis. From a report: Passengers could choose to pay more for travel tickets, which would then be used to offset greenhouse gas emissions. Or the scheme could work on an "opt-out" basis and also be applied to trains, buses and ferries. Ministers hope the plans will raise awareness about the effects of public transport on the environment. The extra funds could be used to spearhead eco-friendly projects such as planting trees to reduce the carbon footprint. The government said it hoped the initiative would "drive consumer choices towards less polluting journey options." However, the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, has launched a call for evidence on offsetting carbon emissions produced by public transport. In addition, the government has expressed concerns consumers may not trust that their payments are supporting worthwhile causes. Grayling said on Thursday: "Climate change affects every one of us and we are committed to ensuring that transport plays its part in delivering net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050."<p><div class="share_submission" style="position:relative;"> <a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Air+Travelers+May+Have+To+Pay+Carbon+Charge+To+Offset+Emissions%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2OinhQ4"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F19%2F07%2F23%2F1935213%2Fair-travelers-may-have-to-pay-carbon-charge-to-offset-emissions%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/1935213/air-travelers-may-have-to-pay-carbon-charge-to-offset-emissions?utm_source=slashdot&amp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"><img src="https://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"/></a> </div></p><p><a href="https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/1935213/air-travelers-may-have-to-pay-carbon-charge-to-offset-emissions?utm_source=rss1.0moreanon&amp;utm_medium=feed">Read more of this story</a> at Slashdot.</p><iframe src="https://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discuss&amp;id=14424054&amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"></iframe><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/nWwhXp-L5rU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Ford Teases All-Electric F-150 Pickup Truck By Pulling a Million-Pound Train
An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: In 2017, Ford announced that it would sell an all-electric version of its best-selling F-150 pickup truck. It plans to start selling a hybrid version in 2020, and as a way to start priming the pump (or plug, as it were) for a vehicle that will no doubt be a very big deal, the company released a video Tuesday demonstrating the electric truck's remarkable towing capacity. The electric prototype is seen pulling 10 double-decker rail cars over 1,000 feet. It does it once when the rail cars are empty and a second time with them loaded with 42 regular, gas-burning F-150s. The latter stunt puts the entire load at 1.25 million pounds, according to Linda Zhang, chief engineer on the electric truck project. In the fine print, Ford describes the towing stunt as a "one-time short event demonstration" and claims it is "far beyond any production truck's published capacity." Right now, Tesla holds the record for pulling the heaviest load, when a Model X towed a 287,000-pound Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner nearly 1,000 feet on a taxiway at the Melbourne Airport in Australia last year. In June, Elon Musk teased Tesla's upcoming Pickup truck and took a swipe at Ford and other truck companies, saying: "It's going to be a truck that is more capable than other trucks. The goal is to be a better truck than a [Ford] F-150 in terms of truck-like functionality and be a better sports car than a standard [Porsche] 911. That's the aspiration." He also said in a tweet that the towing capacity would be 300,000 pounds.<p><div class="share_submission" style="position:relative;"> <a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Ford+Teases+All-Electric+F-150+Pickup+Truck+By+Pulling+a+Million-Pound+Train%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2Obugu6"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fhardware.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F19%2F07%2F23%2F2225205%2Fford-teases-all-electric-f-150-pickup-truck-by-pulling-a-million-pound-train%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"><img src="https://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/2225205/ford-teases-all-electric-f-150-pickup-truck-by-pulling-a-million-pound-train?utm_source=slashdot&amp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"><img src="https://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"/></a> </div></p><p><a href="https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/19/07/23/2225205/ford-teases-all-electric-f-150-pickup-truck-by-pulling-a-million-pound-train?utm_source=rss1.0moreanon&amp;utm_medium=feed">Read more of this story</a> at Slashdot.</p><iframe src="https://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discuss&amp;id=14424354&amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"></iframe><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/ogQvUpI8QjM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
