Apparel startup SclObo weaves an original story through its unique clothes for gamers | GeekWire
Wearing clothing to support your favorite sports teams or movie, game and comic franchises is a pretty common thing. But what if the clothing itself was an integral part of an ongoing story more than just advertising your fandom? That’s what SclObo, a UW Bothell spinout, is aiming to do within gaming and nerd culture.

Quebec gambling monopoly taken for C$1m in casino scam - CalvinAyre.com
Quebec’s provincial gambling monopoly Loto Quebec has been taken for nearly C$1m by conmen who preyed on lax standards at a local casino.

On Wednesday, the Journal de Montreal reported that the Casino du Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec had been defrauded of about C$1m (US$750k) by two members of a gang that has allegedly perpetrated similar shenanigans at casinos in other Canadian provinces.

According to the report, one of the fraudsters pretended to be a high-rolling gambler seeking a cash advance from the casino. The fraudster claimed that this advance would be guaranteed by a bank draft. Another fraudster played the role of the financial institution supposedly guaranteeing the advance, which apparently was enough for the casino to issue the money, after which the scammers disappeared with their ill-gotten gains.

The scam reportedly took place in August, and Quebec police subsequently arrested a 52-year-old Brampton, Ontario resident in connection with the case. The suspect is reportedly scheduled to be arraigned on charges of fraud and use of forged documents on December 12.

Police are reportedly eyeing up to a dozen other suspects for possible arrest. The suspects reportedly had similar success running the same scam at a casino in Ontario, while their attempts were rebuffed by casino staff in Alberta and British Columbia.

Loto Quebec failed to alert the public to the fact that it had been the victim of fraud, although spokesman Renaud Dugas told the JDM that an internal investigation had ruled out the possibility of an inside job. Instead, the probe determined that some staff members failed to observe “the rigorous processes in place.” Dugas said these staffers “have been disciplined, up to and including dismissal.”

Loto Quebec has remained tight-lipped regarding not only the scale of this latest fraud, but also how it stacks up against previous attempts of this nature. Of the cases that are known, JDM reported that the same casino – one of three operated by Loto Quebec – was taken for C$100k in 2009 by a Sri Lankan gang using bogus debit and credit cards.

Loto Quebec’s casino operations reported revenue of nearly C$454m in the first half of the crown corporation’s fiscal year, roughly one-third of the total revenue generated during the period.

Input–output maps are strongly biased towards simple outputs | Nature Communications
Many systems in nature can be described using discrete input–output maps. Without knowing details about a map, there may seem to be no a priori reason to expect that a randomly chosen input would be more likely to generate one output over another. Here, by extending fundamental results from algorithmic information theory, we show instead that for many real-world maps, the a priori probability P(x) that randomly sampled inputs generate a particular output x decays exponentially with the approximate Kolmogorov complexity 𝐾̃ (𝑥) of that output. These input–output maps are biased towards simplicity. We derive an upper bound P(x) ≲ 2−𝑎𝐾̃ (𝑥)−𝑏, which is tight for most inputs. The constants a and b, as well as many properties of P(x), can be predicted with minimal knowledge of the map. We explore this strong bias towards simple outputs in systems ranging from the folding of RNA secondary structures to systems of coupled ordinary differential equations to a stochastic financial trading model.

--interesting but cannot understand the buzz around this paper.
