The hearings will consist of a fair amount of policy wonkery that only an insider could possibly appreciate, but music fans have a horse in this race, too. The seemingly arcane mechanical royalty rate, to be set by early October, could affect everything from the price of music to its overall quality.
In 2010, she established the Veterans Book Project (VBP), a book-crafting program to help returning soldiers process and share not only their stories, but their photographs, too.
Wozniak designed the Apple I, then he, Jobs and a few others assembled the first batch in the garage of Jobs’ parents home.
This private sector initiative might just do the trick in getting entrepreneurs to do what the auto industry (which scoffs at a few million bucks) hasn’t done.
It’s pretty hard to picture Donald Trump engaging in geek talk on artificial intelligence, data science, and coding initiatives. But everyone in Obama’s tech surge thinks it that if logic prevails, the new leader—or at least his advisors—will maintain the momentum of the tech surge. “It’s like having a Tesla in the driveway,” says Macgillivray, referring to the USDS and the Tech Transformation Service. “It’s inconceivable to me that anyone wouldn’t use it.”
“People just turn the station on and they leave it on all day,” Sandler said. “We’re not repetitive like commercial radio is, so people are able to listen longer.”
The VEIL (Video Encoded Invisible Light) technology allows digital information to be invisibly delivered by an ordinary television signal, which is then picked up by a device – such as a cell phone or PDA – with a receptor chip.
Shohdy is the first person charged for online publishing of a poem. If he loses the appeal, he will be Egypt’s first Web prisoner of conscience.
The Mozilla Foundation, inheritor of the Netscape programming code base, made the very first non-beta version of its open-source browser available for free at 1 a.m. PT Tuesday. Soon after its release, Mozilla’s servers were overwhelmed.
The star of the graphic novel bears more than a passing resemblance to a red-caped Batman, replete with a full mask and ammo belt. Miller, however, reiterated that Holy Terror is far too violent a tale for the Dark Knight: As Miller explained, the Fixer is “much more well-adjusted at committing acts of terrible violence” than Batman.
The app lets listeners use “virtually every Last.fm feature” on the T-Mobile G1 and other upcoming phones that run on the platform, according to Last.fm co-founder Martin Stiksel, who added that the app “truly is a ‘to-go’ version of the site,” rather than a stripped-down-for-mobile version.
In 1950, the FBI told Director J. Edgar Hoover that three large flying saucers containing alien cosmonauts were recovered in New Mexico. The FBI has finally explained the memo about the saucer sent to Hoover – and, however inadvertently, provided a clinic in how to assess a secret intelligence report.
SANTIAGO ATITLAN, Guatemala – Chonita Sojuel has seen the ads: A woman with a Palm Pilot trades stocks from atop the Himalayas, and twentysomethings in a San Francisco park use ultra-light laptops to meet with businessmen in an office in Lapland.
I know this criticism is a bit nit-picky, and doesn’t address the probability of what he’s saying. But Kurzweil’s description of humanity’s ascent towards the Singularity implies that it’s an essentially good thing – and though the therapies he describes would be wonderful, there’s a certain impersonality to it.
IM: I don’t know what other use that is as a category for books, if it’s not to let people know what’s appropriate for my teenager to read. What other good is it? Otherwise it’s just straight-up saying you’re too dumb to read adult literature. Just read this simplified stuff. Which seems silly when you’re talking about this age range.
The political tone of the milblogs seems to have little role in the new policies: For the most part, the milbloggers tend to be gung-ho patriots, rather than disillusioned doves.
The building, a mammoth sunlit elliptical dome fashioned from glass and steel, has no books, aisles or shelves to peruse. Instead it sits on top of a 50-foot-deep storage vault which archives the library’s millions of volumes.
Perhaps it’s not surprising that no one is really talking about the mental health impacts of climate change—we have a hard time talking about mental health under any circumstances. But the mental health implications are massive, and they’re already here. In northern Canada, for instance, melting sea ice means Inuit hunters are having a harder time venturing out. For a people that forms an intense bond with their land, that turns into what’s known as ecological grief—psychological devastation that comes with the disruption of the natural world.
Home users, corporations and government agencies throughout Europe, North America and Asia have been hit. Once infected, the vulnerable PC reboots without warning as the compact program hunts for more machines to infiltrate.
And I’m not quite sure who to blame for my months-long bout with the Epstein-Barr virus, or EBV, also known as “infectious mononucleosis,” when I was 21. Probably myself, but they don’t call it “the kissing disease” for nothing.
The recipe for the sausage, which apparently came from one of their grandmothers, was found in the belongings of one of the men after they were arrested.
