He also claimed his quotes are accurate and correctly attributed. Chien wrote that Collins died in 1997, but said he liked his quotes so much he wanted to use them posthumously. He said that he had provided the Stevens e-mail address for Ash inadvertently, and that Ash was upset with him and had recently cut off communications.
That’s when another paranoid thought began to work its way through his mind: For the past 14 months, Yasinsky had found himself at the center of an enveloping crisis. A growing roster of Ukrainian companies and government agencies had come to him to analyze a plague of cyberattacks that were hitting them in rapid, remorseless succession. A single group of hackers seemed to be behind all of it. Now he couldn’t suppress the sense that those same phantoms, whose fingerprints he had traced for more than a year, had reached back, out through the internet’s ether, into his home.
A mid-April review of the well said “it is unlikely to be a successful cement job,” but BP declined to run a “cement bond log,” a day-long evaluation of the cement’s integrity. A crew that arrived expecting to perform the evaluation was sent home.
When you market a device as a tablet, it is extremely important that it is portable. The Surface Pro is certainly portable. In fact, I can fit it, with the Type Cover attached, in the pocket in my trench coat from SeV that is meant for the iPad. While it isn’t the lightest of tablets, and you may experience some strain after holding it with your hands for a period of time, it is super easy to carry around, and will fit into your over-sized pockets, small backpacks, diaper bag, etc.
STEMmy bonus points: While LaQ’s “Sweet” and “Imaginal Girls” collections are marketed specifically to girls (flowers, tiaras, pastel carousels), there are also plenty of sets that are gender-neutral, accommodating everyone from the Pink Brigade to tomboys. Additionally: flatter pieces will not hurt nearly as much when you step on them in the middle of the night.
“I am astonished as to how fast and far this went,” he said. “I got e-mails from people in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Ireland, Germany, U.K., Portugal, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand and Australia just to name a few places besides the U.S.”
So the idea of sous vide cooking was fresh on my mind from the last issue of Wired, with an article about Nathan Myrhvold and his crazy kitchen lab. He was mentioned several years ago specifically about sous vide techniques and it was what got him started on his whopping Modernist Cuisine cookbook. Typically for sous vide you need something like this $400 water oven plus a vacuum sealer. You seal the food in the bags, and put it in the machine, which circulates the water and maintains it at a set temperature. The idea is that the food will eventually reach the temperature of the water; it’s impossible to overcook because the meat cannot get any hotter than the water itself, and so you’ll have your steak medium-rare (or whatever your preference) all the way through rather than pink in the center and brown on the edges. (Or, worse yet, cold and undercooked in the center and dry and burnt on the edges.) Once the meat is cooked (and supposedly you can leave it in the machine for hours and it’ll never overcook), you can sear it on the grill or in a pan briefly just to brown the outside, and then you’ll have a perfectly-cooked steak.
No more electric car sticker shock … or range anxiety. You won’t catch me riding around in an electric car or a Chevy anytime soon, but if GM does bring the revolutionary Chevy Bolt to market as a 2017 model as promised, it could have a real winner on its hands. The Bolt is supposed to be the first all-electric vehicle with a 200-mile range for $30,000, after the federal tax credit, of course. Hopefully they’ll get the ignition switch right, this time.
Security experts are warning that website owners and network administrators should make sure their networks are protected, since the recent rise in cracking activity will not be limited to government sites.
Jump forward two decades, and my, how things have changed. Epicurious is thriving, and so much faster, too. The site (which, like WIRED, is owned by Condé Nast) turns 20 this week, which in Internet years makes it old enough to get an AARP membership card in the mail.
“In our country it’s very rude to go up and talk to them,” the BBC quoted Ahmed Bin Desmal as saying. “I sent some notes, they liked them – they took my number and they called me.”
If the boxes are green, communications and network links to the site are optimal. Yellow means sub-optimal. Red means trouble.
You can make all sorts of assumptions and cultural stereotypes based on these findings, but the most difficult part about social data is actually putting it into context. There are multiple paths one could take to glean meaning from Selfcities’ data. For instance, what insights can we gather about society and different cultures through selfies? Or what can we learn about popular photography through analyzing mobile photo data? “In our view, projects such as Selfiecity allow us to ask all these questions,” says Manovich.
But that didn’t stop a half-dozen e-commerce sites from using it, according to a report by Newsbytes.
The news comes a day ahead of the first of the 10 NFL Thursday night games that Twitter obtained streaming rights for in April.
The Drug Policy Alliance’s Ralston, in her own accompanying statement, points to the fact that drug buyers and sellers were insulated from physical violence thanks to their use of the Silk Road’s anonymity and digital protections:
“There needs to be significant cost reductions in all of the elements for fuel-cell vehicles to be commercially viable,” according to John Boesel, president and CEO of WestStart-CalStart, a nonprofit organization advocating the use of clean fuels. Boesel said the federal government needs to provide additional financial support, but the Department of Energy is waiting for some breakthroughs in the industry before expanding investment in hydrogen research.
Doesn’t anyone understand that 2005 is too late (“E-Votes Must Leave a Paper Trail,” Nov. 21, 2003)? George Bush will be elected in 2004 by the crooked voting machines we now have in four counties.
