By Sarah Clark • nfcworld.com • Published 31 July 2014, 14:27 • Last updated 31 July 2014, 14:27 American Express is working with Croatia’s Privredna Banka Zagreb (PBZ), part of the Italy-based Intesa Sanpaolo banking group, to pilot an NFC payments service that makes use of host card emulation (HCE) technology.

American Express tests Host Card Emulation (HCE) for #NFC payments

The pilot marks the first time an American Express card issuing partner has field tested HCE payments and is the first step in Intesa Sanpaolo’s plan to make HCE-based mobile payment services available across its network of banks. To use the service, cardholders register with PBZ and download an app to their mobile phone. They then enrol a payment card using two separate verification codes that are provided by PBZ and can then make mobile payments at any POS terminal that accepts contactless payments. “The PBZ mobile NFC payment services will be enabled initially on smartphone devices,” Intesa Sanpaolo explains.

Internet: How websites are experimenting on you. Websites are using hidden tricks to make you click or buy without realising, and the way they do it can be both baffling and controversial, finds Chris Baraniuk.

Internet: How websites are experimenting on you

The internet is one big experiment, and you’re part of it. Every day, millions of trials are manipulating what you see when you browse online, to find out how to keep your attention, make you click more links – and spend more money. And these experiments are often secret. You’ll probably never know you were part of them. This is all thanks to something now well-known in the tech industry, called A/B testing.

What started as a way to tweak website design is becoming increasingly controversial – in the most divisive cases, A/B testing can help companies sway people’s mood or even their love life. Plan du Centre - bercyVillage. Roadsign.

When two American aid workers came down with the deadly Ebola virus recently, an experimental treatment materialized seemingly out of nowhere.

How Owensboro tobacco grew a possible miracle drug to treat Ebola

How did a possible miracle drug for one of the deadliest diseases in Africa come to be grown half a world away in a small town in Kentucky? Because of chewing tobacco, malaria, Charles Darwin and Australia. For decades, tobacco has been a solution in search of the right problem, and Ebola might be that problem. In the 1990s, when smoking rates slipped below 30 percent, Kentucky tobacco farmers began to look for another way to make money.

And a lot of eyes turned to Daviess County. New materials developed that are as light as aerogel, yet 10,000 times stronger - Images. Imagine materials strong enough to use in building airplanes or motor cars, yet are literally lighter than air.

New materials developed that are as light as aerogel, yet 10,000 times stronger - Images

Soon, that may not be so hard to do because a team of researchers from MIT and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have developed new ultra-lightweight materials that are as light as aerogel, but 10,000 times stiffer, and may one day revolutionize aerospace and automotive designs. View all Aerogels are incredibly light, so light that the record holder, aerographene, boasts a density of just 0.16 mg/cm3. Currently, aerogels are used for insulation, tennis racquets, as a means of controlling oil spills, and were used on the NASA Stardust mission to collect samples from a comet’s tail. Death Valley Sailing Stones Caught in Action for First Time.
