As the stock market continues to hover near record-highs, Litfin said if the Republican Party fails to deliver on tax reform, that could derail the current momentum. On the other hand, Marshall said Wall Street is still skeptical about whether anything will get done in Washington after getting burned on infrastructure and health care.
Baker: I don’t think people are as unhappy as they were. But also keep in mind when we were building Firefox, we didn’t anticipate reaching the kind of marketshare that we did.
Musician: Wilco for Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.
After Swartz’s death, Malamud realized how high the stakes were in his own crusade. “This is not a trivial, geek thing — it’s the real world,” he says. “The work we’re doing affects society writ large, has huge implications for justice. That’s something the ABA people don’t necessarily get. A couple of standards, what’s the big deal? No, no, no… this is a fundamental rock-bottom issue on democracy.”
“I guess the worst thing that could happen would be that I wouldn’t fill up the walls, right?”
Connect the engines to the Net, and drivers could “rent” a higher-performance engine for the weekend, or set the parameters lower themselves with a Web browser if their teenager is using the car.
Apple News might exert a profound influence over the publishing industry; it might be a bust. It might figure out how to unearth hidden gems from far-flung corners of the Internet; it might become an eight-site echo chamber. That’s all in the future. Today, it’s simply one of the best reasons to take your old iPad out of whatever drawer you’ve stashed it.
The ransomware appeared to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that was purportedly identified by the U.S. National Security Agency for its own intelligence-gathering purposes and was later leaked to the internet.
The little one is just starting to develop a taste for the adrenaline fuelled thrill of rollercoasters, so it was great to be able to ride them without having to queue, sometimes we could even just stay on for another go. The coasters, swingboats, dodgems, driving schools and bouncers were all good fun, but I think we had the best time in one of the building rooms at Legoland.
We haven’t made use of them much in the past, but on this trip the weather was a bit rainy so it seemed like a good place to hang out until the clouds passed. We were able to select a kit to build and given a battery pack for the motorised ones and shown to a little table. You don’t get that same feeling of opening a brand new box of crisp blocks, but there’s still some excitement to be had in hunting down the pieces and although the skill level required was way beyond a four year old, she kept going back for more and more kits. By the third or fourth one, she was able to assemble parts of them all by herself, so long as I’d already found the required pieces.
Since then, it’s become the go-to guide for umbra-encumbered regions around the world, distributed by, among others, the American Astronomical Society. It’s a digestible 14-page guidebook for locals who hope to coordinate eclipse efforts in their communities.
Secord’s company, Premier Website Solutions, has built a low-end site it maintains for Meissner for free. Secord said he has broached the possibility of a business relationship with the skater’s camp.
With three days left in the funding drive, Crabapple had enticed more than 500 backers and raised more than $17,000 – more than three times what she had been seeking.
When we lay down for the night, we swap comics from the library you built into the headboard of our bed.
The Season 2 finale finally reveals what “Stage 2” is all about. Tyrell and Elliot/Mr. Robot have been working to plan an attack on the E Corp storage facility where the company has been bringing all of its paper records. E Corp wants to use them to rebuild its financial databases, but if all the paper is destroyed it won’t be able to do that. See where this is going? We don’t get to watch the hack play out in the finale, but Tyrell and Elliot’s plan is to create an explosion that burns all the paper up. In addition to all the old physical files, the E Corp building also has servers that are hooked up to Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPSs) to keep them running in case of power failures—like the brownouts that have become more frequent thanks to fsociety’s 5/9 attack. UPSs utilize lead acid batteries because of their longevity and reliability. But these batteries emit hydrogen gas, especially when they’re over-charged. So the plan is to get access to the network devices that control the UPSs, shut off the fans, and start overclocking the system until a circuit starts to spark. These types of explosions have happened by accident, and are also used in attacks, as in the pre-Stuxnet operation that took out 50 Iranian centrifuges.
I wish YouTube didn’t annex so many of its uploaders’ rights, but if you keep the site’s Terms and Conditions in mind, the site still has a lot to recommend it. Musicians and other content uploaders might want to take precautions though, such as submitting music videos with relatively low-quality audio or keeping parts of their catalogs off of YouTube. Hopefully, the site will start offering more levels of user control, so that uploaders will be able to specify how their songs get used (or, more importantly, how they don’t get used).

The station’s fans, in fact, had a part in its transition online when more than 21,000 people signed a petition on the KACD website asking fans to support the move. Going to the Internet “was something (Clear Channel) had been thinking about,” Sandler said. “I think they were encouraged by the response we got on the petition drive.”
What Happened: The Internet loves a comeback, but when it’s as fun as Missy Elliott’s return, who can blame it?
