In the late ’90s, Nunziata founded CHUD (Cinematic Happenings Under Development), one of several movie-obsessive websites launched in the pre-Twitter, pre-Facebook era. Back then, outlets like Ain’t It Cool News, Dark Horizons, and Corona Coming Attractions eagerly reported the latest scuttlebutt on long-rumored films like James Cameron’s Spider-Man and, most notably, that infamously anticipated 1999 Star Wars prequel: The Balance of the Force (at least, that’s what we thought it was called at the time). And many of these sites’ message boards were filled with speculation (and sometimes indignation) about what movies were coming next.
“I think it seems vindictive, and I’m confident that he’s going to prevail,” defense attorney Kevin Marino told Wired.
Organizers have filed complaints with the National Labor Relations Board over some of the company’s anti-union activities, including one charge that Amazon stopped workers from distributing pro-union literature in the company lunchroom.
But, while the regulations may apply to a broad swath of people, not everybody affected can actually read them. In a Kafka-esque turn, the guidelines are kept on the military’s restricted Army Knowledge Online intranet. Many Army contractors – and many family members – don’t have access to the site. Even those able to get in are finding their access is blocked to that particular file.
“It is difficult to discern any motive other than that of preventing the owner of the mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding domain name,” the panel said. “The registration of over one hundred such domain names is sufficient to constitute a pattern of conduct.”
Using a radio system set up and operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, radio-synch clocks pick up time data from the NIST radio broadcast channel WWVB. The codes are sent in BCD (binary coded decimal) and contain the correct hour, minute, second, day of year and year, and also transmit information about daylight-saving time and leap years.
Our client is in the business of studying security. He is neither the first nor the only individual to criticize flaws in the TSA’s security procedures nor the only person to describe flaws in the way that boarding passes are created and used. He should not be subjected to civil penalties because he did not violate the Federal Regulations cited in the TSA’s letter, because the regulations cannot be enforced against him or other passengers, because the civil damages provision cited in the TSA’s letter does not apply to the cited regulations, and because Mr. Soghoian’s website is protected by the First Amendment.
Some of the other side effects reported included loss of appetite and depression. Only 30 percent of the volunteers said they felt no effect from having their mobile phones taken away.
In the past few years, many of the most popular consumer electronics – such as the TiVo, iPod, Blackberry or Treo smartphone – incorporate soft innovations, building smarter features and packaging for established technologies.
Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it wasn’t that it lacked punch, maybe there was no need to collectively champion or salivate over The Deuce because we simply don’t need to anymore. It could be that TV’s in the best state it’s ever been. There’s something for everybody—bona fide character depictions, empathetic storylines, relatable themes. The moments have become so normalized that they too have become unrecognizable.
There were plenty of times in the past where other insurgents would come by and pick up the bodies, and then we’d have no evidence or anything to what happened, so in looking at it from the Apache’s point of view, they were thinking that [someone was] picking up the weapons and bodies; when, in hindsight, clearly they were picking up the wounded man. But you’re not supposed to do that in Iraq.
“Douglas Jackson and his associates operated a sophisticated and widespread international money remitting business, unsupervised and unregulated by any entity in the world, which allowed for anonymous transfers of value at a click of a mouse,” said U.S. Attorney Jeffrey A. Taylor for the District of Columbia in a press release. “Not surprisingly, criminals of every stripe gravitated to E-Gold as a place to move their money with impunity. As alleged in the indictment, the defendants in this case knowingly allowed them to do so and profited from their crimes.”
