These deeper earthquakes are those associated with that dipping Benioff zone as seen above in Fig. 9. These are the measurements, the observations – a model of the Earth where there is no convergence (only divergent boundaries) must account for these observations if the hypothesis is to be further tested.
An adult male sperm whale can reach lengths of 60 feet and weigh more than 60 tons. It is believed to be the biggest toothed predator in the world.
And in 2005, FBI agents on the Innocent Images task force hit a wall when trying to track a sexual predator who’d begun threatening the life of a teenage girl he’d met for sex. The man’s IP addresses were “from all over the world” – a sign of web proxy use. The bureau sought and won court approval to use the CIPAV on Aug. 9, 2005.

Calderone does not dispute that in some cases ClickTillUWin was automatically installed without proper disclosure or consent.
For Rosen and company, it’s déja vu all over again. Apple used a similar promotion last year when it released an iMac equipped with a CD burner and its iTunes digital music software. The “Rip. Mix. Burn” promotion peppered billboards, magazines and televisions, prompting people to use digital audio and video with their computers.
When Rosan outlines his desire to expand EverBlock to include windows and doors, it’s easy to see it becoming a new substrate for construction. That’s not a bad idea. Like all modular systems, EverBlock’s real benefit is in its efficiency. But with just three block versions, there are limitations to what you can build with the blocks. Don’t expect a life-size version of Lego’s architecture series just yet (though how cool would that be).
Not everyone was happy with Jesse Eisenberg being cast as Lex Luthor—after all, his particular brand of menace isn’t as global as it is…well, Sand Hill Road, we guess. Batman v Superman, though, is leaning into the idea that the Internet loves to hate a sinister tech bro. But rather than using this angle to revitalize the oft-told tales of Batman or Superman, the marketing department is capitalizing on Lex’s smug-millennial sneer to take over social media. In order to make Lex Luthor Jr. seem more like a real person, he got a Twitter account. Sort of.
The eBay listing for Brooklyn New York-based Streamzy mentions low cost of operation as one of its key advantages. YouTube and SeeqPod do the indexing, no music is actually hosted, and, as the labels know all too well, no licensing fees are paid to copyright holders.
Carradine: I’ve never much liked the way my face looks. Seriously, there’s certain deep furrows around my mouth, and crinkles around my eyes. All the stuff I don’t like, they got down really good. But I guess that’s what makes my face look like my face.
It costs energy to pump the CO2 under the earth, which raises oil/coal dependence and eventually raises the energy cost for everybody. Wouldn’t it be better to solve the problem at its roots: lower energy consumption and lower emissions?
He said the public will not understand that many reactions suffered in clinical trials are due to participants’ underlying diseases, not the therapy. If a study really is risky, the FDA should shut it down – and if not, participants should get safety information from researchers who know the study best, he contended.
This is how ill-prepared the federal government is to protect itself against terrorist attacks: Many of its agencies don’t even know which buildings and computer networks to defend.
MySpace has thrown open its doors to app developers, giving them real time access to all MySpace users’ activities via a new suite of APIs.
Dan Vorhaus pointed me to this review of the recent PBS series Faces of America. I haven’t seen the series myself, but I found this segment of the review hilarious:
Questions over Yahoo’s stewardship of user email could threaten the company’s deal to sell its online operations to Verizon Communications for $4.8 billion.
The FireEye CEO added that the risks from cyberattacks can’t be eliminated because persistent hackers are exploiting human trust and not exploiting systems.
The MPAA maintains that the case simply enforces the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998. It argues there are no free speech issues at stake, since the sole purpose of the DeCSS software in question is to circumvent copyright protection gain unauthorized access to DVD movies.
Now the industry faces another hurdle with long-range, dire consequences: It may be uninsurable.
Lastly, when you use the web search box in the browser, you get another floating window pane that shows the top ten search results. You can click (or navigate with keys) through this list, and the results flip by in the main browser window. RockMelt starts pre-fetching and rendering each one of those ten search results as soon as they show up (with Flash blocked). When you click through the list, you’re seeing real web pages, not snapshots, and you don’t have to wait for the individual pages to load. It’s wicked fast, like flipping through a stack of cards. It sounds bandwidth hoggish, but the browser calculates how much pre-fetching your connection can handle and adjusts accordingly.
“The vendors are going to be disappointed by the sales,” O’Brien said. “We think there will be some novelty interest, but they’re priced very high for quick consumer uptake and don’t really deliver the goods in terms of readability, selection of content and ease of use.”
“It’s been sort of a trickle,” he said. “Most of the easy ones, the low-lying fruit had already been gathered.”
To give you some idea of just how tough we are talking, rock of over 10,000 psi is considered hard. The strongest granite is about 30,000 psi. How well would the MOP
deal with ultra-tough concrete?
Jewish leaders like Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said that the e-mail impersonations of Qumsiyeh, Boyle and others were “absolutely improper” and that the events show “the Internet’s dark underside (as) a vehicle for creating mischief and abuse.”
Rutan emphasized that the actual aerodynamic stresses on the craft were low when the rolls began. The reason so many rolls happened was twofold.
Kazaa Lite is a software client that provides access to the same FastTrack network as the peer-to-peer program, Kazaa Media Desktop, but does not require users to install any third-party software or view any banner ads.
