He will join San Francisco-based Uber’s all-hands staff meeting Wednesday to take questions from employees, board members said in their email. He will also over the next few weeks meet with employees around the world and with drivers.
Although it appears that none of the murders was actually carried out, prosecutors write, “Ulbricht clearly intended them to happen, and the details of the attempted murders demonstrate that Ulbricht will not hesitate to use violence in order to silence witnesses, safeguard his criminal proceeds, or otherwise protect his self-interest.”
The $553 billion budget that the Pentagon will unveil today puts us in mind of a Radiohead song: no alarms and no surprises. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Adm. Mike Mullen already revealed much of its content during his “efficiencies initiative” briefing last month: no more swimming tank for the Marines, no more awesomely-named SLAMRAMM air defense system for the Army, a new long-range bomber for the Air Force, an arrested rate of growth in defense spending down the road. Gates and Mullen will fill in the details this afternoon.
“No one can take from us the value of something that we have already freely given to the world.”
The FBI zeroed in on the suspects by the end of the year: Photos of the three hung for months on the wall in the Anchorage field office, where agents dubbed them the “Cub Scout Pack,” a nod to their youthfulness. (Another older female suspect in an unrelated case, whose photo also hung on the board, was nicknamed the “Den Mother.”)
“You’re not starting from nothing,” Pete said, putting his arm around her. “Definitely not.” The lights weren’t going to come up, the curtain wasn’t coming down; this wasn’t the end of a movie. For once, Pete liked his life better than the vivid continuous dream of the screen. “Come on. Let’s go watch Citizen Kane.”

One big question is how many users will actually notice the change in Chrome, which is subtle. “It’s really hard to measure what impact this will have, but it only takes one person to use this as leverage to hold a site more accountable for securing their content,” says security researcher Troy Hunt. Hunt says the Australian airline Qantas Airways expanded its use of HTTPS on its site earlier this year after he pointed out on Twitter that the site displayed an error when users attempted to log into their frequent-flier accounts.
Justices also said that throwing out the CTEA could affect the validity of past copyright extensions and the 1976 Copyright Act, which anchors current copyright law.
Pornhub embracing accessibility matters more than you might think, and not just because of the titillating content.

Since May, 2000, the Bureau has received 32 compliants from Page Creator customers in the US, Europe and the Middle East concerning more than $76,000 in allegedly bogus charges.
Scientists think Mars once had plenty of water – and appropriate conditions for life – but lost it billions of years ago, possibly after being hit by asteroids. It is believed that water still might exist on Mars as underground ice.
“We’re trying to clone what Google does,” says Patterson. And though the project is still in the early stages, Gibson says the code is already capable of bringing deep learning techniques to live web services. “We’re handling production-level systems,” he says, while declining to name which companies are using it. “At the very least, we’re able to reproduce the results that the academic papers are producing.”
One of the print ads seen by Reuters features a man dressed in military fatigues sitting in a wheelchair. The ad says: “He fought for our freedom. Let’s give him back his.” That “will only become a reality if Congress acts,” the ad says.
The wastes they expel at the other end are called castings, and the worms actually block their burrows with them, which would seem, well, irresponsible.
On a recent January morning in San Francisco, Noah Ready-Campbell showed me around the 3-year-old business he says is about to give eBay a run for its money.
In the world of alien hunting, scientists don’t take candidate signals seriously until they see them more than once, with multiple telescopes. SETI programs detect seemingly-intelligent-in-origin blips all the time, and they often originate from our technology. A huge part of SETI science is distinguishing between, say, a prematurely opened microwave and the Encyclopedia Galactica via the planet Endorp. And the best ways to do that are real-time processing (or at least close to it) and timely confirmation from other telescopes—aspects of the Breakthrough search that have room for improvement.
Nerd Invasion takes place November 6th & 7th in Pensacola, FL at the Silver Screen Entertainment Complex. Pre-sale tickets are $10, if you wait until the day of, tickets (if there are any left) will be $15 at the door. The only real question is, will you be there? Oh, and will Z be there?
To be sure, much of the lower-tier blogosphere is filled with infringing pics. But what makes the Buzzfeed case so unusual is that it is a brand-name media outlet with big-time funding – $15.5 million was invested in January by New Enterprise Associates. It’s also hiring veteran journalists to cover beats ranging from politics to Hollywood, and has won plaudits for its internet savviness in an age where journalism is struggling to make money online.
“Most of the wireless focus so far has been on providing data at the consumer level,” said Curt Hall, a senior consultant with Cutter Consortium’s Business Intelligence Practice. “Companies are now beginning to provide wireless business intelligence capabilities to their workers in the field.”
Christians sometimes get a bad rap in sex-positive writing. Some of them deserve it, considering how loudly they protest the existence of any type of sex-tech, from vibrators to online pornography to the Plan B emergency contraception pill.
What’s the world coming to when you can get your $1.45 million bulletproof SUV with gold trim, a ridiculously expensive Vertu cellphone and three bottles of premium vodka, but you can’t get the whale-penis-skin interior?
“There’s going to be no reference to any historical event in any particular country. Basically it’s drab and dull. You think the U.S. greenback is dull? Wait until you see these babies.”
Terrific article (“Downloading for Democracy,” July 19, 2004) – I’ve been following, with horror, the pending legislation to make downloading music punishable by up to 10 years in prison and to make the technology of P2P downloading illegal. Talk about an overreaction!
Ok, most of these simply said “Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiirsssssst!!!!!” or somesuch nonsense, but still, these poor kids are living on the LG15 site. That’s dedication. Now the Lonely Girl guys just have to figure out how to make money off that. Clearly Lonelygirl will (and does) host ads, but they are looking for other ideas, which so far boils down to product placement. The ideal situation, they say, would be things that can be worked into the show. So, for example, Bree could FedEx another character a package, and if the show had a deal with FedEx, fans could figure out the tracking number and see where the package was headed. Maybe even intercept it. Pretty cool.
The next time you end up on hold, call up the list, Google a name, or search Facebook and MySpace.
Next, head to the “Ads” section. Here, you’ll be able to choose whether or not you want to allow third-party advertisers to use your name or picture in advertisements. Though Facebook doesn’t currently share this information, it’s best to choose to not to allow this. If Facebook changes its sharing practices in the future, you’ll be covered. In addition, the Ads settings pane is where you can choose to opt out of sharing information pertinent to social advertising.
But the notion was powerful enough to send Google, Microsoft and Yahoo all racing to add Twitter and Facebook posts to their search results, regardless of the utility. And Facebook got envious, re-doing its entire approach to social networking by pushing all of its users to post publicly in an attempt to become the net’s vanity press. The upshot of it all: Add “get a prescription to Provigil” to your list of New Year’s resolutions if you hope to keep up.
“(Ford) is drastically under-producing hybrid vehicles and slowing down the opportunity for that market to develop,” said Krill. She added that even though it’s a hybrid, the Mariner gets worse fuel economy than the Ford Focus, a gasoline-driven compact car.
