Almost six months after Gamergate made her a target for angry videogame fans opposed to the diversification of gaming culture, Quinn still experiences daily harassment. Moreover, the people who have made a hobby—and in some cases, a part-time job—out of harassing her show no signs of letting up.
The study of the properties of materials on a molecular scale is called nanoscience. Nanoscience is all about surface area – when you’re dealing with tiny little bits of stuff, there’s a lot more surface than insides! A few years back, my kids and I did a simple demonstration of the principles of nanoscience that worked just like Arrietty’s teapot. Here’s what to do:
No iPhone? No problem: just go straight to the Instant Wild website and you can scroll through the images there and help identify them. They’re working on an Android version as well. The app is free, so go grab a copy and start tagging!

“If an emergency develops, we’ll be able to deliver news on the air at any time with a satellite uplink,” said Milena Merrill, a broadcast producer for the site. In return, local authorities can take over the top third of the StTammany.com website for certain emergencies.

GoSolar did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but its website suggests that the iPod Touch must be hacked (i.e. jailbroken) in order for it to operate as a phone. And any iOS user is familiar with the fact that Apple regularly wipes out jailbreak hacks with every new iOS update. So in short, as cool as this solution sounds, it sounds less practical than simply using the iPod Touch as a VOIP web phone with third-party apps available through the App Store.
Last week, the European Union’s executive arm cheered such efforts, saying that each of the companies had boosted removal of illegal content, including terrorist propaganda, 59% of the time when it was flagged for review, up from a rate of 28% six months ago.
“Palm is going to have to do something,” said Tom Ross, professor of law at the University of Pittsburgh. “Palm can’t afford to have a lot of adverse publicity around this story. The PDA market is already slipping.”
On many mobile devices, rendering the images is what slows down page load times. That’s where TinySrc comes in. It’s a clever service that parses your images and presents scaled-down versions to mobile devices.
By comparison, Alphabet Inc’s Google’s staff is 31 percent women, Twitter Inc’s is 37 percent women and messaging startup Slack’s workforce is 43 percent women, according to the companies’ websites.
I get flustered and begin to stammer, then manage to blurt out that I’d just come from a meeting and that I’m trying to figure out what to do next.
I’ll confess that I too was bit baffled by both of those tips, in fact I’d never really heard of E-Tags and never bothered to investigate expire headers.
Enter 5min, which encourages experts on a variety of subject matters to shoot five-minute videos on a given topic – usually a tutorial of some kind – and upload it onto 5min’s website, which also features similar content from larger partners. The company announced on Wednesday a deal to add 100,000-plus instructional videos from the “For Dummies” website. Even before that deal, it provided videos for over 350 niche sites, through which claimed to reach over 300 million unique visitors each month.
Within Germany, Facebook has geo-blocked many of the posts, meaning that the Facebook users who can be located — by their IP addresses, for example — as being inside the country can’t see them. But Jun has argued that the content is still accessible via a direct URL, or by using a proxy IP address or a Tor browser. Christian Solmecke, a lawyer who has worked with Jun in prior cases against the social media giant, told me over email that dozens of illegal hate comments and defamatory posts reported to Facebook have been allowed to remain under the premise that they don’t violate the social media company’s community standards.
The recently enacted law bans online gambling, including games with “electric, electro-mechanical and electronic” components. The government has admitted it can’t differentiate innocuous video games from illegal gambling machines.
Hackers are also increasingly turning to the phone to try to con their way into accounts, Gaffan said. Most online banks will let you pay bills, but don’t let you transfer large sums of money to another person, something that can be done over the phone.
Perhaps the most time-honored way to remove a woman’s humanity is to reduce her to biological functions, and so that’s exactly what Myranda does. She tells Sansa that while Ramsay might need her claim, “he doesn’t need all of you. Just the parts he needs to make his heir, until you’ve given a boy or two and he’s finished using them. Then he’s got incredible plans for those parts.”

Those series’ success helped Netflix land more Emmy award nominations than any TV network besides HBO this year. It’s also the main reason Netflix’s U.S. audience has nearly doubled since the February 2013 debut of “House of Cards” kicked off its expansion into original programming.

But then something amazing happened. A small team, recruited from the segments of the tech-sphere that actually did work (like Google, or Obama’s election campaign) worked overtime to try to fix things. And they pretty much did. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to write about that team when I was still at Wired.
Since a majority of Real’s traffic comes from dialup users, the demo file sizes are about the size of MP3 files. Full-length games on the service are compressed to 20 MB, which is about four times the size of a standard MP3 file, according to programmer David Weekly.
Like pretty much everyone, Outlier now uses Facebook’s Lookalike audience tool to recruit eyeballs—you give Facebook your customer list, and Facebook generates a new list for you of people who look like it. It works, but it doesn’t have the same immediacy or fanboyishness of the subreddit.
