Your Facebook fundraiser refund receipt

Hi Farshid,
We wanted to let you know that your donation of $xx.xx to the fundraiser Raise to support the victims of earthquake in Iran was refunded and will be deposited into PayPal farshxd.farhxt@gmail.com. Please note that it may take your bank a few business days to deposit this payment into your account.

We're providing this refund to you as a security measure. To raise money for a nonprofit on Facebook, we require people to select from a specific list of authorized nonprofits to ensure authenticity and security. This fundraiser wasn't set up to support one of these authorized nonprofits and therefore, it's ineligible to receive the funds.

Farshid, we value the generosity you've shown to this fundraiser and know this cause is important to you. Since we are unable to direct your donation through this fundraiser, Facebook is making a donation on your behalf to Moms Against Poverty's Iran Earthquake 2017 campaign, a nonprofit selected by the creator of Raise to support the victims of earthquake in Iran. Moms Against Poverty is working on the ground in Iran to provide relief to people impacted by the recent earthquake there.

Thank you for being part of our fundraising community.

ABSTRACT
A system that incorporates the subject disclosure may include, for example, instructions which when executed cause a device processor to perform operations comprising sending a service request to a remote management server; receiving from the management server an authentication management function and an encryption key generator for execution by a secure element and an encryption engine for execution by a secure device processor, sending a request to establish a communication session with a remote device; and communicating with the remote device via a channel established using an application server. The secure element and the secure device processor authenticate each other using a mutual authentication keyset. The secure element, the secure device processor and the device processor each have a security level associated therewith; the security level associated with the secure device processor is intermediate between that of the secure element and that of the device processor. Other embodiments are disclosed.

Your iCloud storage is almost full.

Apple recently sends the following emails to make us upgrade! As you see in my screenshot I have nothing to backup, but my iPhone fills the space with something!!! It is very strange and weird that Apple wants to make us backup on the only option (5GB small space!).

Dear ... ...,

Your iCloud storage is almost full. You have 5 MB remaining of 5 GB total storage.

Upgrade to 50 GB for $0.99 per month

Your iCloud storage is used for iCloud Mail and to keep the most important things on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch safe and available, even if you lose your device. iCloud Drive and apps like Keynote, Pages, and Numbers also use iCloud storage to keep your files up-to-date everywhere.
To continue to use iCloud and to back up your photos, documents, contacts, mail, and more, you need to upgrade your iCloud storage plan or reduce the amount of storage you are using.

The iCloud Team

Note: If you exceed your storage plan, your devices will stop backing up to iCloud. iCloud Drive and iCloud-enabled apps will no longer update across your devices, and you will not be able to send or receive messages with your iCloud email address, ...@icloud.com.

Smart Aesthetic Scoring for Better Photography

Image Aesthetics Scoring Engine

The developed engine gets the image and outputs a score showing the amount of the beauty inside the image! The code is working on Android/iOS platform,
The engine speed is about 100-200 ms which makes it suitable for a real-time engine. The core exploits GPU to compute aesthetic features from the image, and estimate the aesthetic score.
