Fetching the readable text from a document

I am trying to extract the news article from given URL. I am basically creating DOM tree and then fetching <p> tags from it and collect all paragraphs. It works for some sites but for some sites I am getting garbage text. For example :

Share on Facebook Twitter In the recent years, we have seen rise in the global temprature. Subscribe to newsletter

So basically I want to extract only readable text from this document which will be -

In the recent years, we have seen rise in the global temprature.

Is there any way to achieve that?

Password policy

Sysadmin - 9 hours 11 min ago

Hello there!

I have been assigned the task to have users with passwords older than 6 months change their password within 14 days. I thought "no problem, send them a mail and check their pwdLastSet attribute". Unfortunately no user is like that, so we'll have to force them.

Again I thought no problem. Reset their pwdLastSet timer to now, and move them to an OU where a policy asks them to change their password every 14 days, warn after 2 days (so I have time to move them back with a PS script).

But my problem is, the new password policy does not seem to affect the users. I have used myself as a test, and I get no warning nor do I have to change the password.

When looking at GPO inheritance, the 14-day password policy wins against the 180 day policy, where the 180 day policy is 13 steps further down in precedence. (180 day policy is at a higher level, but the 14-day one is enforced).

My user account is in the OU affected, my password is set to expire (PasswordNeverExpires is False), so why do I not have to change my password? If anyone could share their experience with this issue, I would greatly appreciate that.

SUNRISE Contacts 2018 3.6.7 - Contacts and management tool.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 10 hours 3 min ago

SUNRISE Contacts 2018 is a powerful contacts and general information organizer with features designed to work the way you do and with the added benefit of being spyware-free and privacy-protected for your personal or business use. You do not need to be in business to use this tool. It is also constantly updated by our developers to be the most flexible and useful tool of its type while ensuring a sense of simplicity in its interface and workflow for many users.

Notes from developer: To install, download the software to your FAT32-formatted USB drive, remove it, and re-insert, and open the dmg file. This should solve GateKeeper issues, including any attempts to lose the link between SUNRISE Contacts 2018.app and the primary database file (i.e., contacts.fmp12).

Fully tested for malware using VirusTotal.com and Kaspersky Anti-Virus with a clean bill of health, if you should find any viruses or other malware in our product with your anti-virus software and we can reproduce the results, you will receive a free license key to unlock more features (and a cleaner software)



Version 3.6.7:
  • Not happy with the Replace Field Contents script for portal rows, we have made some further refinements for all databases. Also made it more useful to replace field contents starting from the portal row you are in.
  • Another rebuild of finance.fmp12 to permit private use percentage to be included, and to better separate personal, business and department transactions. As a result, category fields do not require special markers to distinguish business and department transactions from personal transactions anymore. Fixed a minor issue with updating Business and Personal balance amounts.
  • Apart from the Replace Field Contents issue, the only one other change to contacts.fmp12 is the ability to Copy URL in Passwords section by pressing Option key and clicking into the URL field.

Iridient X-Transformer 1.1 - Convert Fujifilm RAF images to DNG format.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 10 hours 4 min ago

Iridient X-Transformer is a utility that can be used to convert Fujifilm RAF images to DNG format using Iridient Digital's high quality RAW processing algorithms. Much of the core RAW processing, sharpening, noise reduction and lens corrections featured in this program are shared with Iridient Developer a more full-featured RAW processor that is available only for macOS.

The Iridient RAW processing routines have been in active development for over 12 years for use in Iridient Developer and have been optimized and refined over the years for the best possible image quality. Iridient Developer is widely regarded as one of the highest quality RAW processors available.

The key RAW processing stages that can be applied by Iridient X-Transformer during conversion to DNG include:

  • Interpolation or demosaic processing. This transforms the camera sensor's X-Trans or Bayer color filter information to produce a full color RGB image. This processing is always applied by Iridient X-Transformer and cannot be disabled or undone. There are two interpolation options, one for a more detailed rendering and a second smoother, lower artifact version. The algorithms are identical to the latest "detail+" and "smooth" options in Iridient Developer 3.1.4.
  • Sharpening. Iridient X-Transformer features advanced sharpening based on the very highly regarded "Iridient Reveal" sharpening algorithms featured in Iridient Developer. Sharpening is optional and can be adjusted (low/med/high) or disabled.
  • Automatic lens corrections for distortion, chromatic aberration, and vignetting. Corrections are based on native Fujifilm lens information specified in their RAF metadata. The lens correction stage is optional and lens correction information can also be passed on through DNG opcode metadata and left to later processing stages or ignored altogether. The lens correction processing in Iridient X-Transformer uses the same high quality resampling algorithms as Iridient Developer.
  • Color and luminance noise reduction. The noise reduction processing in Iridient X-Transformer shares much in common with the latest noise reduction available in Iridient Developer and is specifically optimized for RAW image processing. Noise reduction is optional and can be adjusted (low/med/high) or disabled.


Version 1.1:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.9 or later

New Features:
  • Support added for the Fujifilm X-T3.
  • Support added for the Fujifilm XF10.
  • Support added for macOS 10.14 Mojave's Dark Mode.
Improvements:
  • Official support for macOS 10.14 Mojave.
  • Improved deep shadow noise reduction, particularly for long exposure times.
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed a Windows specific issue where the "overwrite make" option did not change all metadata in the DNG and some fields would still show "Fujifilm" instead of the custom make .
