“Rather than getting a page that says ‘This page has been blocked,’ you get a page saying ‘Page not found,’ designed to look exactly like the Internet Explorer 404 page,” said Cairo-based ONI consultant Elijah Zarwan.
Passing on classified data – real secrets – is already a serious military crime. The new regulations (and their author) take an unusually expansive view of what kind of unclassified information a foe might find useful. In an article published by the official Army News Service, Maj. Ceralde “described how the Pentagon parking lot had more parked cars than usual on the evening of Jan. 16, 1991, and how pizza parlors noticed a significant increase of pizza to the Pentagon…. These observations are indicators, unclassified information available to all … that Operation Desert Storm (was about to) beg(i)n.”
One interesting thing that happened was related to how we communicated with web masters who were affected by Safe Browsing alerts. Because very quickly when we started looking into the problem of how users might be exposed to malware on the web, we realized that a lot of it came from websites that were actually benign, but were compromised and started delivering malware via exploits. The site owners or administrators typically did not realize that this was happening.
“We have been emphatically told, in the strongest possible terms, not to post this review,” Colaiuta wrote on his site. “Sorry guys, but we’re not going to risk being taken to court over this one!”
But regulators seem to be looking askance at these claims. At the recent health department meeting, a lab services official was supposed to speak about “validation of genetic diagnostic algorithms” during a special session about “genetic testing concerns,”
but her presentation was tabled until the group’s September meeting. That talk could have given hints about which types of tests are likely to come under even more scrutiny.
The problem at Liverpool Council is staggering. The authority’s 6,000 employees were generating 100,000 e-mails a day for internal communication, compared to 6,000 external and personal e-mails.
Bringing more of the design work in-house cuts complexity, people familiar with the processes say. Instead of managing one or more design teams and then a fabricator, Apple has only to manage the fabricator.
Actually, the vast majority of names on Stardust are legitimate. They represent a successful effort by NASA to foster public interest in spaceflight.
All told, the cuts will save the Defense Department more than $13 billion during the next five years. That’s a pittance. With war costs factored in, the Pentagon is asking congress for $671 billion for just the next year.
Browder: It’s the UI that’s being worked on and the basic level tutorial stuff we haven’t quite got into yet. We have some basic tutorials, but there’s more we want to do with that and that’s going in like in the next couple of weeks. That will help out a lot as well. I have confidence that in about three to five weeks, we’ll have something really strong, and we can start to focus test with some guys we pull in off the street that are very casual and see what they think.
Fired Google engineer James Damore says he was vilified and harassed for questioning what he calls the company’s liberal political orthodoxy, particularly around the merits of diversity.
For the last 16 years, the Webby Awards have touted themselves as the internet’s answer to the Academy Awards. In their words, the Webbys are “the leading international award honoring excellence on the internet.”
And note that, as Faulkner writes, “over time the necessity of explicitly assigning landmarks will lessen as browsers build in ARIA landmark roles to newer HTML element semantics.” For now though, even if you’re already using the new elements, it doesn’t hurt to add the roles as well.
After nine months in custody fighting U.S extradition, Fischer was released last March to the nation of Iceland, which granted him citizenship and a new passport.
Further fixes followed: personalized messages, more polite requests to take down a photo or a post, more culture-specific pleas. (In India, for example, online insults directed at someone’s favorite celebrity tend to cut deeper than they do in the US.) “Hey, this photo insults someone important to me,” reads one of the new automatically generated messages. “Would you please take it down?”
However, Firefox 4’s current implementation (also still in beta) suddenly looks awkward and primitive next to Opera’s take on the same idea. It more elegant, and it plays on a behavior many users – those with iPhones or iPads – are already familiar with.
For now, the blueprints are for sale in 30 states. Proceeds from the sales will go to paying Wilson’s legal fees, which will continue to be considerable—and if it turns out he sells the plans to any non US citizens or anyone outside the US, they’ll be even higher.
LabDoor has a website and iOS app, with plans to launch an Android app as the database of products grows. Thanedar is keeping the overall grade, clinical efficacy, and ingredient safety information free for anyone to view, but is working on a paid subscription service that will show an image of the product’s label and provide a more detailed breakdown of the ingredients in it and their effects.
About 70 percent of South Korea’s 48 million people have access to the Internet, with about 11.8 million having high-speed connections, giving the country the highest broadband penetration in the world.
“Microsoft is pleased to have reached a mutually satisfactory settlement with these plaintiffs, and believes that resolution of this case is another step in our effort to resolve these issues so we can focus on the future,” Tom Burt, Microsoft’s deputy general counsel for litigation, said in a statement.
Of course, The Huffington Post does have some very talented reporters producing excellent journalism, including scribes Sam Stein and Ryan Grim in D.C. But one need only look at the website to see that the majority of the content is “curated” from other websites, or AP copy, or just random SEO-driven blog posts by Arianna’s stable of 2,000 celebrity bloggers and paid news aggregators. (Disclosure: Over the years, I’ve written a blog post or two for The Huffington Post. I was never paid.)
“Now Nashua looks forward to discussions aimed at renewing the constructive business relationship that Nashua and Ricoh enjoyed for many years prior to this lawsuit.”
