Craigslist: The Movie follows the stories of various people who posted ads for jobs, poodles, husbands, a ’70s-style backup band and more, all on the same day: Aug. 4, 2003.
On the surface, there wasn’t much to it: just a graph of violence in the Jalalabad region, and a plot of those fruit prices. When the level of violence was stable – reliably low, or reliably high – so were those prices. Fruit sellers knew what to expect. But when there were sudden swings in the number of attacks, the prices shot up.
Alex Iliev has proposed a way to force anyone who wants to monitor e-mail or Web browsing to follow the rules – and not snoop on private data that should be off-limits.
It’s not the first time investor groups have attempted such a stunt. Earlier this year, Mitaronda’s BCG Investments gained control of another struggling online music company – MusicMaker.com – and oversaw the liquidation of its cash reserves. MusicMaker’s website, which used to sell customized CDs, is no longer in operation.
Shot in glorious black and white by Jay Hunter (Paper Heart, Dollhouse), the film stars Amy Acker (Cabin in the Woods, Alias) and Alexis Denisof (How I Met Your Mother, Angel) as Beatrice and Benedick, the world’s least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. As Joss Whedon puts it: “The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love, which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter – to the text, to the cast, even to the house it’s shot in.” The supporting cast includes Nathan Fillion (Castle, Waitress) as Dogberry, Clark Gregg (Avengers, Iron Man) as Leonato, Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods, Dollhouse) as Claudio and Reed Diamond (Franklin & Bash, Moneyball) as Don Pedro.
Beard says that the goal of the framework would be allowing users to access web services and social sites and sync data between their web browser, web aggregator or web-enabled desktop application.
But even though many sites are being rebuilt with responsive design in mind, it will take a long time for the whole web to catch up. And there will always be a few corners of the web where you’ll need to lie to get the page you want.
Kuniholm was a graduate student in biomedical engineering at Duke University, and the cofounder of a small industrial design firm, when his Marine reserve unit was called up for service. He was shipped off to western Iraq, where, a few months into his tour, he fell victim to an IED – blown down while on foot patrol near Haditha Dam.
The event was streamed live by the Exploratorium museum on the web, at their physical location, and in Second Life. You can catch an excellent replay of the event at their website.
They also argue that the proposal undermines a government-approved new DNS security measure known as DNSSEC that aims to prevent criminals from poisoning the domain-name lookup system with false information in order to “hijack” people trying to visit their bank online.
That said, many malvertising campaigns use the popular Angler exploit kit, which, according to a recent Cisco report, can have a success rate of up to 40 percent globally. On top of this, a spate of recent attacks have utilized zero day exploits, which means that even fully up-to-date software could be compromised—but attacks using those are relatively rare at this point.
In other e-mails, Foley wrote: “I am back in Florida now…its nice here…been raining today…it sounds like you will have some fun over the next few weeks…how old are you now?” and “how are you weathering the hurricane…are you safe…send me an email pic of you as well.”
Facebook Inc launched its Watch video service to all users on Thursday with plans to allow anyone to submit shows, as the No. 1 social media network takes on Alphabet Inc’s rival YouTube to boost advertising revenue.
Mesaros: Yep, it’s purely a brand exercise for Zippo. They’re justlooking to get their name out there a little more, and they can showcasewhat their lighters look like…. There’s a clicking sound when youlight the flint, and that was super important to them, [and] they werevery particular about the flame being the exact color andbeing very true to their brand.
As Seth Shostak, senior astronomer and director of SETI research at the SETI Institute (how’s that for credentials?) noted, the telescope doesn’t see a fine point in the sky. Every telescope has a “field of view.”
The webmasters and their consultants paid particularly close attention to Google engineer Matt Cutts, the company’s main liaison with the webmaster community and this party’s star attraction.
Current telescopes tend to do processing over time, painstakingly trying to produce the most accurate images of space possible. Often, they undergo transformations to eliminate problems with their cameras themselves, or random noise.
The Pentagon regards Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning as a possible suspect in leaking a classified six-year history of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan that Wikileaks published over the weekend, a spokesman said Monday.
Nonetheless, most executives have preferred to remain in the background, unwilling to appear publicity-hungry or risk drawing negative attention to themselves, according to Leslie Gaines-Ross, chief reputation strategist at communications firm Weber Shandwick. In the age of hyper-sharing on social media, “everything is different,” she said.
The latest Go victory underscores China’s gains in AI
The process can even be done partially offline: print the image and post the paper to a bulletin board (maybe where your Yoga class or Occupy cell can see it). People can take a picture of it, save the pic as a screen shot, and then use Rooms to continue the physical gathering offline. Or an author can print an invite in a book, so that readers can go to a room to discuss the contents.
WHAT WE SEE: While explaining his survival to John, Sherlock mentions that his second escape plan involved “a system of Japanese wrestling.”
Qualcomm said earlier this week that it will fight the FTC’s suit, which it says is based on inaccurate information and was rushed out ahead of the change in presidential administrations. Qualcomm said it has never withheld or threatened to withhold its chips to gain unfair licensing terms.
Swarm was an interesting pivot for Foursquare. What Swarm does is allow users to “check in” to local areas and see where others have checked in as well. I’ve currently only seen people in the technology industry really use it and don’t have any friends currently on the application. It looks like a unique concept, but I feel that location-based posting has now been molded into so many applications that the uniqueness of the service is gone. It also doesn’t make sense why you would use Swarm just to publish your current location when you can use Instagram to take a picture of where you are and geotag it, check-in to wherever you are on Facebook, or use location-based Tweets to let your followers know where you are. It just seems like an unnecessary application to have.
And although Sergeant Mitchell could not disclose details about what went on behind the closed door meeting between Dallas police officials and Zuckerberg, he believes that social media has been more beneficial than harmful.
Metaphors, he says, are a key part of learning computer science. He tries to talk to as many people as he can about a subject and then he starts to form metaphors that describe it. “Then I can present them with those metaphors, and they can tell me better ones,” he says.
