Although really, I’m not sure what “not safe for work” means anymore. I once saw someone label a fully dressed anthropomorphic cartoon coyote as “NSFW,” presumably because her sweater was a little tight. I think that says more about the labeler than the image, but I have to admit I’m amused at someone’s pink slip reading, “Viewing incredibly hot sexy cartoon coyote ladies on company time” as the reason for dismissal.
It’s also a friendly little thing, lighting up when you approach and yielding its secret in ways familiar to Apple’s intuitive ways of interaction. You push down on the display to show the menu. And when you turn the ring to set temperature, it tells you how long it will take to achieve that temp. When it heats, the display turns red; when it cools, the color is blue.
Here is the soaring vision that Skybox’s founders have sold the Valley: that kids from Stanford, using inexpensive consumer hardware, can ring Earth with constellations of imaging satellites that are dramatically cheaper to build and maintain than the models currently aloft. By blanketing the exosphere with its cameras, Skybox will quickly shake up the stodgy business (estimated to grow to $4 billion a year by 2018) of commercial space imaging. Even with six small satellites orbiting Earth, Skybox could provide practically real-time images of the same spot twice a day at a fraction of the current cost.
That glee may be fleeting. For now, Pruitt’s replacement is Andrew Wheeler, a coal industry lobbyist who worked briefly at the EPA 25 years ago and will return as the acting administrator. He was approved as deputy administrator by the Senate in April 2018, but Wheeler would face a second Senate vote if Trump nominates him to become the permanent agency head.
He also pointed to the campaign for The Day After Tomorrow, in which those who logged in from Los Angeles saw video of the city getting hit by a tornado, while those in New York saw their city in the throes of an ice age.
“Certainly, keep an eye on your kid and make sure they’re doing better in everything today than they were yesterday,” French said. “But to do a formal screening and then worry that your child isn’t quite normal yet, that’s going way too far for parents’ knowledge level.”
Though DNA analysis is a standardized process, each company picks the variants that it thinks provide answers. One company might decide that one variant signifies caffeine sensitivity or the likelihood that you might feel hungry after eating a full meal; both translate easily into advice. (Lay off the caffeine! Stop eating even if you’re still hungry!) Other results might help tailor a workout. Someone with an SNP that correlates to difficulty building muscle might add strength training or additional supplements.
Wagers on which pig will win and lose are being accepted by London betting firm William Hill, which will donate the money to the charity fund. A company spokesman said that thousands of pounds have already been wagered since the site went live last Saturday. Pig Brother also offers discounted Internet access, with $1 donated per each “Piggy PC” account.

In a commentary – the comments of ProMED’s volunteer moderators are always worth reading – Dr. Matthew Levison of Drexel University’s College of Medicine and School of Public Health notes the confusion:
There was one extremely difficult part of working through the Drobo review. Sending the system back when the review was over. My wife and I fell in love with the ease of use, speed, and expansion capabilities. The Drobo 5D retails for $843 on Amazon with no drives included. Part of the beauty of the system is that you can bring your own drives to the party. The 5D also has a little sibling, the Drobo Mini has 4 drive bays and only accepts 2.5″ drives but provides all of the same power as well as Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity. The Drobo mini retails on Amazon for $643. If you are looking for a drive solution that just works and can help ensure that it will be along time before you run out of space, ensure that you can get to your data quickly, and have the confidence of a backup, I would head over to the Drobo website and check it out.
In the case of the vending machine, first reported by Geekwire, it’s useful to draw a comparison to the earliest days of Amazon’s business. In the beginning, Amazon was purely an online bookstore. When the company started selling other stuff, brick-and-mortar competitors who didn’t know they had anything to fear from Amazon were caught by surprise – and have been paying for their lack of foresight ever since.
