On May 5, two days after YouTube received C-SPAN’s letter, the Colbert video was publicly available through an agreement with Google Video.
With so many legitimate users depending upon the system, any successful attack on Tor raises alarm and prompts questions, even when the attacker is a law enforcement agency operating under a court order. Did the FBI develop its own attack code, or outsource it to a contractor? Was the NSA involved? Were any innocent users ensnared?
“It’s an interesting project and there’s no doubt that heritage work of this sort is very hot right now. It’s nice to be involved because of the cultural value of what we’re trying to achieve,” he said.
Marshall recently raised the rates for premium placement on his blog to $1,200 a month. Top spots on other popular political blogs run from $300 a month (Calpundit) to $1,300 (Eschaton).
Walden will become a “strategic adviser” to Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam after the end of the year and leave the company entirely in February. Tim Armstrong, the former Google executive who had run Oath under Walden, will now report directly to Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam. Walden will not be replaced.
In late August, the EU ruled thatIreland gave Apple illegal tax benefits which lowered its effective corporate tax rate on its profits from 1% in 2003 to 0.0005% in 2014. In other words, Apple allegedly paid just $55 in tax for every $1.12 million in profits it booked in Ireland. It also ruled that Apple avoided higher taxes in other EU countries by reporting all its European profits in Ireland. Other reports indicate thatApple might have funneled two-thirds of all its overseas profits through the country to reduce its global tax burden.
But some MMO developers think the notion of renters populating their games is sure to be a problem, and for many reasons.
In the spirit of giving, they’ve also added three live tracks to the collection, “Diggin for Gold,” “Black Beard’s Treasure,” and “All About the Booty.” I think I was in the crowd for one of those recordings. Not sure. These do come at the end of the CD, and a great way to end a fantastic collection of pirate rap, leaving the door open for a new studio album in the future.
To use the Packet Forensics box, a law enforcement or intelligence agency would have to install it inside an ISP, and persuade one of the Certificate Authorities – using money, blackmail or legal process – to issue a fake certificate for the targeted website. Then they could capture your username and password, and be able to see whatever transactions you make online.
Here’s how it works at FlightCar’s initial airport served, San Francisco International. First, you (the care owner) create a listing on FlightCar with your vehicle’s stats, proof of ownership, and the dates you’ll be traveling. On the day of your flight, you call FlightCar on the way to the airport and the company sends a valet to meet you at short-term parking to collect your keys. You catch your flight, and your car goes to FlightCar’s warehouse, six minutes away from San Francisco International Airport. On the homeward bound leg, you call FlightCar with your return flight details, and a valet meets you with your car at the same parking area.
In part, that’s because Google says its employees continue to create what are commonly referred to as 20 percent projects, despite the disincentives to participation listed by Quartz. We’ll see how that plays out, but in the meantime, there’s a bigger reason 20 percent time will live: Google couldn’t kill the thing if it wanted to.
When that could be, though, is anyone’s guess. To evaluate any of these blood screens, thousands of patients will have to get tested—and then researchers will have to wait for some of them to actually get cancer. That’s the only way to determine not only their predictive power, but also whether they lead to improved patient outcomes. The noninvasive screening tests available today—mammography for breast cancer, a protein-measuring test for prostate cancer—are rife with their own issues. Incorrect diagnoses waste time and money on treatments and burden patients with unnecessary anxiety.
My favorite part of the website is the Weapons Policy:
Washington: Back in the continental United States, the earthquake swarm underneath Mount St. Helens appears to be continuing, albeit in a bit of a sporadic fashion. A magnitude 4.3 earthquake occurred ~10 km to the north of the crater on Monday and along with a number of smaller aftershocks, were all located at ~4-7 km depth. The USGS is, not surprisingly, keeping an eye on these earthquakes but the indications don’t seem to be pointing to any impending eruption at St. Helens. The earthquake, the largest in 30 years at the volcano, was large enough to be felt by some people in the area near the volcano and in Portland (thus all the horrible “Love waves on Love Day” puns – Love waves are the side-to-side surface waves in an earthquake). Dr. Bill Steele of the University of Washington Geophysics Lab said that this swarm is not unexpected in the area but it is “awfully vigorous” and that this seismicity might be related to changes in the stress field near St. Helens. These changes are usually associated with moment of magma or cooling of magma under the edifice. Remember, you can see all the seismic activity in the Cascades on the PNSN webicorder page.

And here’s the best part: The downloads are MP3 files completely free of DRM restrictions. Unlike downloads from Napster, UMG/SpiralFrog and Yahoo, the MySpace downloads will play on your iPod.
In the new trial, study volunteers will receive two 125 milligram doses of pure 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) synthesized by a chemist at Purdue University. A control group will receive a placebo. Patients will take the medication on two separate occasions spaced three to five weeks apart, combined with talk therapy sessions. Patients will stay overnight at an unidentified clinic when they receive the drug.
