“An ideal partner for us would be a RV, motor home, aircraft, train or bus manufacturer with production facilities in the U.S. who is looking to diversify,” said Shieh. “We hope to leverage not only their manufacturing capabilities, but also their domestic and export sales channels. In return, we’ll deliver the design and fully developed concept.”
But that’s not the whole story of search. Scan down the Google results and you’ll notice that mixed in with search engines that are popular – such as Excite or AskJeeves – there are a few that have funny names and are less than well-known. There’s one called Dogpile that promises “all results, no mess.” Another is Ah-Ha, which only returns “the good stuff.”
PP: I should also say that there are also archival proposals. Hubble records everything it’s observed. It’s all digital. It’s all sitting in an archive. A vast, vast archive, well over a hundred thousand observations I think now. And so when I was working on Hubble back in ’98 I think, I made a proposal to go through the archive and look at brown dwarfs. These weird objects that are bigger than planets but smaller than stars that are on this borderline. And it got accepted. So I didn’t need telescope time, so it was a relatively inexpensive project. And I wound up not being able to finish the project. It took me many years to develop the software for it, besides the work I was working on at the same time. I wound up giving the whole thing to a friend of mine who continued on with it. We changed it to actually look for low mass red dwarf stars because it turns out Hubble is pretty sensitive to them. And we can see them really far away, thousands of light years away, which is tough to do. So that project just kind of morphed a little bit, but it turned out we could do good science with it. So you never know what’s going to happen. So that was kind of cool to not have to use the telescope but be able to access all this data to play with it. Almost everything imaginable it has taken a look at. It’s very cool.
We also received a free “Kreon” minifigure sample. The larger kits include these Kreon figures:
Authorities have been encouraging affected companies to contact law enforcement and not pay the ransom.
A prosecution witness, Robert East, said he was a 15-year friend of Bell who once gave Bell some lockpicks. East also said Bell had bragged that he owned the two chemical “precursors” to the nerve agent Sarin, but East said, “I just assumed it was B.S.”
Then this morning during the Rachel Ray Show I saw my first television ad featuring Carrie Fisher. The commercial, which was a simple interview with Carrie was actually kind of dark, but it got me inspired to root for her. She’s brutally honest!
J.P. Morgan also joined with On Deck Capital Inc. in 2016 to help make loans to some of the bank’s small business customers.
Bannon’s hire highlights a troubling trend: the blurring of the lines between media as campaign observer and campaign operative. With Bannon leading Trump’s presidential bid, the lines are now erased.
This time feels different to Jody, like it is already inexorably happening. To Peter, it’s a scenario likely enough to worry about, to lose sleep over, and to take drastic action to prevent or mitigate – but it doesn’t feel necessarily inevitable … not yet, anyway.
After Trayvon Martin was shot dead inside a Florida gated community and the state declined to press charges against the man who killed him, the boy’s parents took to the web.

It’s a TED-level dream, with a terrible name, middle-school show-and-tell level presentation and a business plan to match. The first question from the audience: How’s he going to make money? “I hope for the help of social organizations, maybe donations. But the next steps, I don’t know,” he says, shrugging. “I think ideas should come from the soul, not how to monetize it.”
JDS comes with Ximian Evolution’s e-mail and calendar application, which connected easily to our existing e-mail accounts on setup. The interface is very similar to Outlook, Microsoft’s e-mail and contact program.
“It’s time to re-examine SCO’s recent claims and call in the lawyers and maybe the authorities,” said David Mohring, a New Zealand-based Linux applications developer who recently posted his own detailed explanation of “who helped put what code where.”
You advised readers to wait a year or so before installing Vista. While I always recommend waiting at least six months to see if there are any patches and so on, your flaw is that you expected Vista to be legacy-friendly. It is clearly stated on Microsoft’s site and others that the company is trying not to do that. Microsoft wants everyone to upgrade to get rid of all old equipment. That’s why the requirements are so high. Now as for the other issues except for the price, which I think is very ridiculous, if this OS was perfect, there would be very little need to improve or upgrade to the next version, right?
I haven’t actually attempted the game yet using the full ruleset, though I have used some of the standard movement rules, saturation and bracketing fire, and ship repairs. I am curious to throw in the torpedoes, screening, and ramming in the future.
Moreover, the codification companies often put restrictions on use of the codes they publish. That’s because, in some places, they own the copyright on the chopped and organized products they create. Carl Malamud has spent years compiling laws and legal codes on the website Public.Resource.Org. In 2015, he was sued by the state of Georgia for copyright violation after he published the state’s legal codes, complete with annotations published by LexisNexis. An unannotated version of the law was available for free online, but, unusually, the annotated version of the laws is considered the official version of the law in Georgia. Malamud argued that the annotated version wasn’t subject to copyright since it is the official version of the law, and in October, an appeals court ruled in Malamud’s favor.
Google says over the next five years it will spend $1 billion on nonprofit organizations helping to raise education levels around the world and commit its employees to a million hours of volunteer work doing the same.
Ozbek said the growing number of fuel-cell vehicles undergoing real-world testing shows that the technology is getting closer to commercialization. Automakers are leasing the fuel-cell vehicles to municipalities and private companies to evaluate their performance under typical conditions. “Are we in a better place now than at the beginning of 2004? Certainly,” Ozbek said.
Netstumbler detects networks that reveal their SSIDs (short for Service Set Identifier), which are typically broadcast under the default setting for wireless routers, while Kismet “listens” for radio signals in the air. GPS units connected to laptops by serial cables allow network locations to be charted on digital maps.
MetaMind—which currently spans only 10 employees—will act as a kind of deep learning consultant, but it will also offer its own deep learning services and software to businesses. Running across hundreds of machines loaded with tens of thousands of graphics processors, its online service will let business run deep learning tasks without setting up their own hardware. But if a business prefers to run their own deep learning systems, MetaMind will provide the software—and the expertise—needed to do so.
Dimant said that in “in light of the World Trade Center, they would certainly reflect differently today with a frivolous remark that it was just like a Yahoo posting.
The permit resolves a conflict dating to December. That’s when Uber — an aggressive player in the self-driving race to bring the technology to the market — rolled out a pilot program of more than a dozen cars in San Francisco, its hometown.
*”I designed a 2”x2” concrete cube with a compressive strength of 16,000 psi [pounds per square inch] at 28-days, a relatively high strength as standard concrete is on the order of 3,000 psi, typically. Now, The University of Tehran made several cubes between 50,000 to 60,000 psi, and possible stronger! I thought the aggregate to be made from quartz, and I also remember some steel fibers in the mix. These cubes exploded at failure, finally damaging the compression machine on the third or fourth cube (that machine was substantial, made for much larger samples). So, keep in mind this is unreinforced concrete (save the steel fibers) at an early age. Concrete becomes stronger, sometimes by orders of magnitude, over time.
10:57 When you’re in a full-screen app, the notification shows up on top of the screen you’re on, and then leaves. You can swipe to get at your notifications from the side of your trackpad, and then switch out to the Messages app, for example.
Still, it could have a tough road ahead. The open source relational database PostgreSQL, which has been around since 1995, has become increasingly popular for both relational and non-relational applications. Meanwhile, a wide range of open source NoSQL databases have already found homes in companies who can tolerate eventual consistency. A proprietary database may be a tough sell.

The advocacy group, which last year badgered Dell (DELL) until it significantly bolstered its recycling initiatives, plans protests at Apple’s headquarters throughout 2005, a letter-writing and e-mail campaign, and other attacks against the maker of Macintosh computers.
Sites like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), with its Prime Now and Prime Fresh subscriptions, have given new meaning to “running errands.” Shoppers can browse the site from their laptops or mobile devices, place anything from household goods to the latest entertainment gadget into their virtual shopping carts, and often have the items in-hand within a few hours. That may be why Amazon attracted more visitors to its site during the last two months of the year than eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY), Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Target (NYSE:TGT), and Kohl’s (NYSE:KOH) combined, comScore figures compiled from November through the end of December showed.
Because Austin pairs an extremely creative food palette with a fair share of techies, the food truck–trailer scene has boomed in the city thanks to services like Twitter and Foursquare. Since Foodspotting focuses on creating user-generated, Denny’s-menu-style photo collections of a particular restaurant’s cuisine instead of just written reviews, the service may encourage SXSW attendees to try eateries they normally wouldn’t, said Jason Umlas, owner of Lucky J’s, which specializes in chicken-and-waffle tacos.
12:05 a.m. – As we depart the festivities, many party faithful are still nervously awaiting the results in Oregon, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Florida.
The government’s case against Defense Distributed centers on export law, and a deal Wilson struck with the State Department back in July. Until July, DIY gun blueprints were considered a “deemed export” by the Department of Defense, which meant that uploading them online was the same as exporting them internationally. Wilson had argued that defining online data as an arms export violated free speech. Physical publications that make information freely available aren’t treated the same as online content; if Wilson had just published the blueprints in a magazine before uploading them, the State Department would have had no room for complaint.
The English-language site was set up with a promise to present the nation’s human rights situation “comprehensively and objectively.”
In the time since the two companies entered a partnership in 2011, T-Mobile Android devices have come preloaded with the Lookout Security & Antivirus app. Now, T-Mobile customers have access to a custom line-up of “Scream Tones” to help find a lost phone or tablet. Users can choose from six loud sounds including a wolf howl, train whistle, euro siren, a “beam me up” tone, the T-mobile jingle and Lookout’s original siren.
