In the current chilly venture capital climate for websites with uncertain revenue streams, IUMA couldn’t find additional funding and it will effectively cease all new operations while it continues to search for a benefactor.
The “all-seeing” eyes of the world’s most advanced military forces really aren’t that all-seeing. Even with the rapid advancements in drones, radars, infrared and electro-optical sensors and “change-detecting” computer algorithms, it’s still possible to hide, using tried-and-true methods. In tropical regions, hiding under jungle canopies is still a great way to avoid being seen. Two years ago, the American Association for the Advancement of Science tried to use satellites to track human-rights abuses in Burma, but dense tree cover made it necessary to send in human spotters to verify what the satellites appeared to see.
Similarly, Huffington is making all the right noises about hiring veteran journalists. In addition to Calderone, Arianna has hired former New York Times reporter Trymaine Lee, New York Daily News politics veteran Michael McAuliff, and Jon Ward, formerly of News Corp.’s iPad newspaper The Daily.
Google says in response to the lawsuit that it “has no way to know — and no reason to know — whether a given domain in the AFD program could infringe a valid trademark,” Google’s Moran writes. “And even if Google did somehow have the ability to pluck out those domains which could infringe a valid trademark, Google has no way to know who has registered the domain, be it an infringer, a licensee of the trademark owner or the trademark owner itself.”
Since she and her husband, Glenn, launched the site a year and a half ago, Only the Breast has attracted roughly 3,000 members (posting is free but both sellers and buyers must register to make contact). The couple, who run the business out of their Walnut Creek, California, home, plan to bring in revenue by selling ads. For now, though, they post their own endorsements for such things as prenatal vitamins and baby sign-language classes. They have yet to turn a profit, but their enterprise has already expanded, with recently launched sister sites in the UK and the European Union.
Their list was heavy with Bionicles and Indiana Jones sets. A recent birthday money purchase got them into Mars Mission. They were still developing their distribution plan for the wish list when the cleaning happened.
VeriSign has defended the service it launched Monday, saying it gave Internet users help finding what they were hunting for instead of a generic error message. The company estimates that people mistype “.com” and “.net” names some 20 million times daily.
Big rigs may move the bulk of freight and rule the roads of the US, but their blocky designs aren’t exactly aerodynamic, sucking up lots of fuel as they shuttle cross-country. Plus, they’re just plain boring. So semi manufacturer Peterbilt is looking for more fuel-efficient tractor-trailers by holding a competition in conjunction with open source car company Local Motors to develop innovative aerodynamic designs.

“It’s disingenuous for the MPAA to use these (blue-collar) guys to sell their point when they will fight them tooth and nail over every union contract and ship their work overseas in a heartbeat,” he said.
Overall: Does the new theme really change the game much? No, not really, and it doesn’t make sense that Merida will stop and shoot some arrows for practice while running from a giant bear. But it’s still fun in an endless, repetitive sort of way. I’ve found myself playing it a lot to unlock the objectives, but ultimately it’s not a huge change from the original. The good news is, it doesn’t turn Merida into some traditional princess figure, but that’s mostly because she’s just running and running and not doing much else.
