The caldera is an active place, with several seismic swarms each year and nearly constant ground deformation (both rising and falling) of the caldera floor. This is perfectly normal for a “restless caldera” like Yellowstone. This is not to say that these changes aren’t closely watched when they occur – we’ve never experienced an eruption at Yellowstone in human history, so we can only use our knowledge from other volcanoes to look for signs of an impending eruption. However, even if Yellowstone were to see a sharp rise in activity, the likelihood is that an eruption would be small. The most recent activity at Yellowstone are small rhyolite domes that formed in the caldera itself, so whenever people talk about the “eruptions” of Yellowstone, they likely mean the “big 3” – Huckleberry Ridge, Mesa Falls and Lava Creek Tuffs. However, the giant caldera-forming eruptions are few and very far between, so worrying about such an cataclysmic event is a little outlandish (like worrying about an asteroid hitting your house). I know I can sound like a broken record, but more type is burned (including my own) about Yellowstone when it represents a much smaller volcanic threat that volcanoes like Mt. Rainier or Mt. Shasta.
But Apple may also have some wiggle room as the EPEAT rating system evolves. “Our relationship with EPEAT has become stronger as a result of this experience,” Mansfield wrote, “and we look forward to working with EPEAT as their rating system and the underlying IEEE 1680.1 standard evolve.”
It wasn’t long before Ajax became the de facto standard for every other webmail product — Yahoo Mail and Microsoft Hotmail, the other giants of webmail, were later redesigned using Ajax — and for web applications in general.
Technologia Aeroespacial Mexicana will not only sell you a jetpack, they’ll train you to use it and feed you too. The website gives the rundown:

“These virus kits are bad juju. People who wouldn’t normally dream of releasing a virus are too tempted by the ease of writing and releasing crap with those kits,” a cracker named Taltos wrote in an e-mail.
The first thing I noticed about the Asus was, of course, the interesting exterior. Karim Rashid designed the seashell surface, and it does stand out from the netbook crowd. I love the brown color. It also comes in pink, but I’m just not a pink sort of girl. Once I got my hands on it, though, one of the first things I noticed is that it is really light. It is definitely lighter than the Intel-Powered Classmate PC that I recently reviewed over at GeekDad; the Asus weighs in at slightly over 2.5 pounds, according to my postal scale. The rubbery outside of the Asus is grippy but not too grippy. It’s still rubbery enough to collect a little bit of dust, but not too much.
— SURFACING SALES: Three months ago, the biggest blemish on Microsoft’s results was a 26% decline in revenue from the company’s Surface line of computers. At the time, Microsoft attributed the slide to older Surface computers in the market, as well as increased price competition. Since then, Microsoft has rolled out a new Surface laptop for the education market, and an update to its Surface Pro tablet-laptop hybrid device. Those products, though, became available toward the end of the quarter and aren’t likely to have factored much into the company’s top line.
Here is example of our network. Despite all IPs marked [on] block lists were blocked, [the listings on Spamhaus Block List] weren’t removed even after we sent a number of notifications. Moreover Spamhaus demanded to give out information about our client and only on this condition they were ready to consider SBLs.
Not everybody agrees with that. But ironically, it is something that both the purveyors of the hate sites and other watchdog groups, such as the Simon Weisenthal Center and Anti-Defamation League, do agree on. Those at the hate sites say the publicity has helped their causes. Those on the other side say the fight is not close to being over.
The New Rowley Group, a market research and analysis firm, also chided Sun for the product’s name in a recent report, but added “our view is that JDS is a direct Windows/Office competitor for a large number of PC users.”
The Scientology attacks were investigated by the FBI, and two Anonymous member were prosecuted for clogging Scientology’s websites.
After calling my husband and chatting with a few of my fellow treasure-hunters, I returned to my digging spot and cleaned up my mess. I put a note in a bottle in the hole for future hunters to find. It was then that I realized that I had very little time to get home. I sped home, hoping to make it to the bus stop in time. Against the odds, I made it home only nine minutes before the bus arrived. My daughter stepped off the bus and saw me holding a shining silver and emerald seven in my hand.
The digital rights groups also told the court that, among other things, Stottlemire’s online tutorials are speech protected by the First Amendment.

Until someone solves that puzzle, the web will remain indie film’s Wizard of Oz: all promise, no substantive solutions. Films have become easier to find, thanks to YouTube, but that site’s explosive success does nothing to help indie filmmakers pay down their credit cards.
Those of you on dystopia watch, which frankly should be everyone, please read this jarring account of how the provider of a CPAP machine—which helps with sleep apnea—not only monitors patient data, but shares it with insurance companies, who in turn deny payments to patients who don’t use the device. This appears to be not only legal, but increasingly standard practice. Read this ProPublica story. It’ll make you mad.
But Rosa Miriam Elizalde says that La Jiribilla promotes Cuban culture with respect to its makers, whether they’re in Cuba or in exile. “We have published original texts and interviews dedicated to several generations of writers that have abandoned the country,” she says.
The original version of Blaster had a message chiding Bill Gates for allowing worms like Blaster to happen.
“There’s been [internal] discussion as to whether we should keep doing this or not since it can now be done with remote sensing,” says Bergur Einarsson, a glacial hydrologist who recently took over management of the network from geologist Oddur Sigurdsson. Though some might see the crude nature of pen and paper measurements as a hindrance, Einarsson argues it’s actually an asset. “One of the strengths is that these measurements have not evolved. They’re done more or less in the same way they were done in the 1930s.”
When the kids aren’t engrossed in these extra-curricular activities, they’re helping to plan the family’s next road trip. DJ recently booked the plane tickets for a trip out west where they plan to visit seven national parks.
The e-mail looks like it comes from Los Angeles-based MediaDefender – Hollywood’s hired guns that ferret out online privacy. The e-mail isn’t from MediaDefender and is sent out at random, victimizing the unsuspecting.
Agencies charge anywhere from $15,000 and $50,000 to facilitate an adoption, domestically and overseas. Adoptions overseas by Americans have roughly tripled over the last dozen years to about 21,000 in 2003, according to State Department data.
Impressive as the specs may be, there’s more to a tablet than hardware. There’s no word on software and user interface for the ICD devices, and few humans have ever set their eyes on this beast.
Samsung’s recall of Galaxy Note 7 devices eroded trust with consumers and cost it $5 billion. But the outlook for the Suwon, South Korea-based firm’s mobile division got a boost last week after unveiling its newest flagship phone, the Galaxy S8. The phone won strong initial reviews and booming sales would signal consumers have moved on from last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
