Though the additive in “Eli Stone” is named “mercuritol,” it’s clearly a proxy for thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative. Thimerosal was largely pulled from the U.S. market in 1999 after the FDA belatedly realized that an expanding routine immunization schedule had led to infant mercury exposures far beyond the EPA’s suggested safety limits.
While McGowan has avoided addressing her past with Weinstein directly, she has often seemingly referenced it. She last year said that she had been raped by a “studio head.” After the New Yorker expose ran Tuesday, which included the report that Weinstein had allegedly sexually assaulted three women, McGowan tweeted “now I am allowed to say rapist.”
Revenue from Amazon Web Services amounted to $3.23 billion in the third quarter of 2016, growing by a jaw-dropping 55% year over year. By comparison, online retail revenue in North America and in the international segment grew 26% and 28%, respectively.
As was previously reported by GeekDad writer Lonnie Morgan in Crashing Into the Moon for Science, and earlier this morning by Dana Bostic in Ways to See the LCROSS Crash on Friday Morning, NASA’s LCROSS mission is destined to make an impact on the Moon. The mission objective is to search for signs of water in the crater left behind by slamming a Centaur upper stage into the lunar South Pole. We are now into the final countdown for the LCROSS impact. Scheduled for impact into the crater Cabeus at 7:31 a.m. Eastern time this Friday, Oct. 9, there are plenty of opportunities to witness this historical event live!
And where the soldier said [in the video], “Well, you shouldn’t take your kids to battle.” Well in all actuality, we brought the battle to your kids. There’s no front lines here. This is urban combat and we’re taking the war to children and women and innocents.
The EU’s shopping decision isn’t the end of the story for Google’s legal battle with the commission.
Science is our most reliable source of truth—the way we know that the planet is warming, vaccines save lives, and your next watch probably (probably!) won’t make your hand fall off. If a writer at this country’s newspaper of record wants to write about the health dangers of technology, he has a responsibility to understand what the science actually says—and more importantly, how the science says it. Otherwise, that writer isn’t warning people that wearables are the Soylent Green of the 21st century. He’s poisoning the well for future scientific discourse. Only science—not ignorance, not fear-mongering, not conspiracy-theorizing—will ever tell us whether a watch is going to give you cancer.
Eventually, some intelligence personnel would complain to Petraeus’ brain trust about the requests.
Not every connected entity has the same level of privileges. To see what they can tap into, just click, and the view will expand for a helpfully detailed rundown.
“Criminals learned that if they used a RAM scraper, there will be a point of time in every POS system where that data is in the clear,” the researcher says. “It may only be for a split second, so they will find that.”
It was the debut of Trakus’ Digital Sport Information platform that runs the technology, measuring speed and distance data and transmitting it to wireless devices and to the internet. A section on the Bruins’ website was dedicated for fans to access real-time data that showed players’ speed, endurance, tendencies and power.
“Cloudflare is aware of the concerns that have been raised over some sites that have used our network. We find the content on some of these sites repugnant,” the company said in a statement.
Years later the technology product will come up in conversation and the technology enthusiast will say “Yeah, I had one of those,” and shrug and consider and understand that revolutions are not about a before and after that belong to history, but are instead about the continuous struggle in the here and now that belongs to the people, and that all progress comes at a price.
“If tech companies want to attract and retain the best talent and are going to move women into leadership roles that will make the companies more competitive, they need to pay men and women the same, and they need to be transparent about how they are doing that,” said Natasha Lamb, a partner at Arjuna Capital.
“This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites — sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful,” Cutts wrote in a blog post. “At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites — sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.”
“When he’s running reliably, people talk with him well into the night,” Kiehl said. “People come back time after time just to see what random stuff he’ll say next, or to teach him some ‘useful’ information about someone else’s sex life or whatever. People are constantly referring him to friends, and talking to him when they are lonely or bored at work.”
Studied in bulk, these are transparently manufactured attempts to create a groundswell of outrage that reaches the broader public, the press, and eventually, even the President. But when the average Twitter user encounters one of these accounts, it’s not so easy to see the manipulations. The work of groups like the Alliance help the public observe the changing whims of this online collective. In a world in which online conversation shapes public opinion—and in some cases, policy—it’s more important than ever to take a closer look at who, or what, shaped that conversation to begin with.
