Most important is to find your local club or society and get involved, meet other people who have been in the hobby for a while and can let you look through their scopes and pass on advice. Beginners in astronomy can easily fall into the trap of buying items that are advertised as telescopes but are really only suitable for young children and will immediately disappoint a keen adult or older child.
Beyond that, the Devour has its basics covered. It includes a camera capable of both video and still photos, a 8-GB microSD card, accelerometer, Wi-Fi and GPS.
Developers initially will distribute software under the BSD license, which would allow other campaigns to use the code freely. They likely will allow distribution under other open-source licenses once campaign lawyers grant approval.
Solved is quite educational as well. Did you know a garage sale in Brooklyn is called a “Stoop Sale?” This track explains that and some of the very unique items that could be found at such a sale. The track “Nerd Vs. Jock” seems to also educate the listener in the inevitable future of the two social classes years after high school has ended, perhaps also providing a bit of emotional closure for MC Frontalot himself, comfort in the knowledge that most of the jocks are belly scratching cavemen at this point, not evolving past their former glory.
The storied history of LSD as a mind-expanding tool began five years after Hofmann discovered LSD-25, and had what he described as a “peculiar presentiment” compelling him to resynthesize the drug. Without ingesting the substance, Hofmann managed to accidentally absorb enough of the chemical to experience its effects. In a second intentional trip, Hoffman said he had a frightening experience that gave way to feelings of rebirth.
Apple’s new phone gets a very reasonable 7 out of 10 repairability rating, scoring just above last year’s iPhone 4S, which earned a 6 out of 10. But for home repair aficionados, there are still a number of integrated components that can make repair costs add up quickly.
The first selection under “Sheet Music” is a tutorial, where Scott Houston, also known as “The Piano Guy”, will offer some basics on reading notes. When the app is plugged into the keyboard, as he speaks to the notes they will illuminate for you. (“The Piano Guy” is not to be confused with “The Piano Guys,” the YouTube sensation!)
The tour was clearly intended not only to highlight the plant’s technological prowess but also to demonstrate the unity between Bain and Toshiba Memory.
Samsung shares were down 3.3 percent as of 0125 GMT, compared with a 0.1 percent fall for the broader market.
The major music labels see the promotion as another attempt to make money off digital piracy. Gateway isn’t concerned about educating the public, it’s using scare tactics to sell more CD burners, Rosen said.
On Tuesday, he flew out to Burbank, Calif., to hold court in the famed building on the Warner Bros. lot that housed Jack Warner’s office. Accompanied by Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, Mr. Stephenson talked with about 15 movie and television executives over a buffet lunch, according to a senior Warner Bros. executive who attended the meeting.
The anti-abortion activists had argued the posters were protected under the First Amendment because they were merely a list of doctors and clinics that they hoped to put on trial some day, just as Nazi war criminals were at Nuremberg.
But if he wanted to reveal USC’s security gaffe, it’s not clear what else he could have done. He had to get a sampling of the exposed records to prove that his claims were true. SecurityFocus reported that USC administrators initially claimed that only two database records were exposed, and only acknowledged that the entire database was threatened after additional records were shown to them.
So I think that’s good news—for now. We’ll see how I do on the next test I’m planning with Wesnes, Turk, and Cognitive Drug Research—to determine how my brain does after drinking a glass or two of a modestly-priced Bordeaux.
If you’ve been waiting for responsive design to go mainstream, wait no more. While The Boston Globe‘s responsive redesign made a big splash in the developer community, The Globe has nothing on the latest web giant to throw its weight behind responsive design – Google.

The FBI’s wanted poster for Witt states only that she may be in Southwest Asia—hardly a promising sign that she’ll ever be arrested by American authorities. But as in the growing stack of cases where the US Department of Justice indicts foreign hackers and spies, the FBI and Justice Department says they intend the charges to telegraph a message to anyone who might attempt to follow in her or her handlers’ footsteps.
With these things ready to pick up and go, we predict a lot of 10″ packages in this year’s Christmas stockings.

“The Lampson Transi-Lift LTL-2600 is the world’s largest land based mobile crane,” says Karen Lampson, a spokeswoman for the Kennewick, Washington, crane-maker. The Sarens crane, on the other hand, is a fixed crane. “That means that our crane can pick and carry a load whereas the Sarens crane can only pick the load, but it cannot move forward, backward or sideways the way the Transi-Lift can.”
“Under Gov. Bush’s leadership, high-tech Texas has a government that is more accessible, responsive, and efficient,” said campaign spokesman Tucker Eskew. Bush, the Republican presidential nominee, has pledged to create a chief information officer for the federal government.
“You find yourself lying sideways when you think you’re standing up,” Sellers said. “It’s an unnatural feeling, but not really very unpleasant.”
In my experience, many college students are not aware of their career options, so this sort of initiative is sorely needed. The Labs are Vital website is attractive and well-organized, giving its visitors just enough information to embark upon a career in laboratory science, but it also paints an excessively-rosy and almost cartoonish image of the profession. Despite those flaws, it would be nice to see other high-tech industries follow its example.
That pool of data also plays a major role in Ovuline’s pregnancy-tracking tool, which is currently in private beta. Throughout their nine-month term, women can enter their weight, blood pressure, mood, and other metrics and get pregnancy-specific daily recommendations from Ovuline. For instance, you might get a suggestion to eat more if you’re not gaining enough weight for the baby, or be told to exercise if you’re feeling irritable.
The only thing faster than these gamers is the speed with which they’re raising money for cancer research.

Each printed coupon has its own unique serial code.
My kids and I like the idea that we, and thousands of others like us, are doing a small part to create the maps and science needed to send that child to the red planet twenty years from now. It will be an amazing day.
According to media experts, Lahren’s departure comes at a critical time for TheBlaze. Beck’s site garnered just eight million unique visitors in February 2017, down from 21.5 million unique visitors in March 2014, according to comScore data.
“Reed [Hastings] runs a great company. I think Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has a fantastic consumer interface. Rather than talk about Netflix specifically… the way people used to get TV was through the TV set multi-channel to the home by either a satellite or cable curated by us in the media business and by viewers making choices as to what they want. The good news is there [are] a lot of additional players that want to aggregate content — that can be a Samsung device, it could be an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) device… Netflix… Hulu, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). From my perspective looking at the industry, all of those are really, this is a little pejorative, it’s an overstatement, but they’re essentially dumb devices and as great as each of those aggregators are… they only come to life if you put great content on there,” he said.
RouteRank lists all the information you’d expect from a travel website – schedules, connection times, and ticket prices – and throws in the amount of CO2 each itinerary generates. You can sort the results by price, departure time or CO2 output, making it tougher than ever to ignore the environmental impact flying to that big sales meeting or jetting off to the wine country for a three-day getaway.
Ever since, Gigabyte has replaced Lara Croft as the ideal woman in the eyes of some young hackers. The guest book at her website is replete with messages from gushing male admirers, along with the occasional nastygrams from critics who say she lacks ethics, maturity, programming skill, etc.
There are problems with this interpretation, however. Most obvious is that just because someone didn’t enter a valid address into the comment form doesn’t mean their comment is illegitimate–there are good reasons for not wanting your home address or personal email address included in the public record. And just because a comment has a valid address doesn’t mean it’s a legitimate comment: as noted above, many of the comments in favor of repealing Title II appear to contain addresses harvested from spam databases. In other words, the broadband industry is claiming that comments containing stolen personal information are more “legitimate” than ones that oppose its own position just because the stolen addresses are valid addresses.
While it is still early to know if the gameplay will eventually force people to pick sides, the evidence suggests that the serial killer’s motives are not quite black or white. Thus, as in life, the characters’ motivations still lie hidden in the gray area. And that’s where this bloody adventure continues to thrive.
In much the same way he maps out his narrative with pen and paper, Casado has mapped out a new future for the world of networking. He and Nicira and a small community of other computer scientists are pioneering a new breed of computer network that exists only as software, a network you can control independently of the physical switches and routers running beneath it. With this paradoxical arrangement, they aim to provide a far easier way of building and modifying and rebuilding the networks that run the largest services on the web and beyond.
