This may be my Clippers bias showing, but i wouldn be shocked to if we beat the Warriors either. Of course, everything would have to fall right in place, but, to win a Championship, you have to have some luck. Right Doc?Couldn agree more with Ryan. Also whose code gets reviewed? If it is just junior staff they may feel aggrieved as may more senior staff who have to take time out to do it. The real value comes when it is 360. Junior developers get to avoid certain pitfalls whilst senior developers can offer their wealth of experience..

We are being subjected to more and more manipulated images online (Image: Getty)Get the biggest daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeMore newslettersThank you for subscribingWe have more newslettersShow meSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailDo you think you could easily spot a fake image?And if you knew it was fake, would you be able to single out what wrong with it?Apparently most of us can tell what wrong with a faked picture and some are worried it underlines the threat of fake news and propaganda.A study of more than 700 people found that four in ten couldn tell a fake picture from a real one.Their success rate at detecting a phony image of a real world scene was only 60 per cent, said scientists.And even then those that did notice something wrong could only spot what it was 45% of the time.Have a go at the two examples below and see if you can spot what fake.1. Can you spot what fake in this photo?The study published in Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications used a bank of 40 images created from 10 originals sourced from Google Images six of which were changed in five different ways.These included both plausible and implausible physical manipulations to create 30 altered pictures.The 707 participants in the online test were shown 10 images at random that included each of the five manipulated types and five originals and were never shown the same one twice.An average 60 percent were correctly identified as being manipulated when participants were asked “Do you think this photo has been digitally altered?” just over the chance performance of 50%.But of the people that answered “yes” only an average 45 percent of manipulations could be correctly located when a grid was placed over the image and participants were prompted to select the regions where a change had been made.2. Can you spot what fake in this photo?The findings shed fresh light on the growing problem of fake news seen during the recent UK and US elections.”This has serious implications because of the high level of images and possibly fake images people are exposed to on a daily basis through social networking sites, the internet and the media.”She said the phenomenon could endanger national security as well as democracy.Ms Nightingale said: “The rise of photographic manipulation has consequences across almost all domains from law enforcement and national security through to scientific publication, politics, media and advertising.”Currently however science knows very little about people ability to distinguish between original and fake images.”The question of whether people can identify when images have been manipulated and what has been manipulated in the images of real world scenes remains unanswered.”.
