An Australian company hopes to change that by creating a gigantic, international, standardized database of neurological information that can be held up as a benchmark next to individual patients.
“They’re getting an unfiltered experience,” said J.D. Lasica, co-founder of the website Ourmedia.org. “We’re used to the idea of neatly packaged presentations by traditional media and this is like the events are happening in your backyard.”
Porco: Wetland areas. I had always hoped we’d see a Lake Michigan brimming with paint thinner, and we seem to have found something like that. So far, they’re all in the polar regions, and we don’t exactly know why. That has big implications for the type of meteorology that Titan might have, and that has yet to be worked out.
Southern California-based Gateway said that its 4520GZ and 4525GZ notebooks are available at the Micro Center stores as well as on the company’s web site. Gateway’s newest desktop PCs, the 550GR and 500GR, high-end entertainment and digital music PCs, are also available under the agreement.
I don’t remember our trip to the hospital at all but about 90 minutes later my first son was born: 8 pounds, 14 ounces, already-opinionated, and gorgeous. He was placed on my chest for a moment but then the midwife had him whisked away. I had torn badly–possibly (it was erroneously thought) through to my perineum–and I needed to be sewn up immediately. Since my son had arrived without the use of pain medication (and whatever local anesthetic the team used for this procedure was ineffective), this is the part of my son’s birth I** recall most clearly today.
The company has a league of executives who manage day-to-day operations, but has usually relied on the leadership and the visions of founding family members for direction.
Regardless of the original intent of Section 136, it is clear the awarding of the loans is heavily influenced by the Obama Administration’s goals related to the stimulus program – primarily job creation. The New York Timesquoted the Department of Energy as saying that Fisker’s “two projects seemed to be worth the risk of the loan,” because they would create “a large number of jobs in America.”
Recently I was offered the chance to try out a few Playmobil sets, and I was curious: how would my daughters respond to them? They actually have a very nice Plan Toys wooden dollhouse with a family of dolls, kitchen and bedroom sets, and a little vegetable garden … and they rarely play with it. It usually sits in the corner, taking up a lot of space, and doesn’t get played with except when we have other kids over. My daughters — to my wife’s great dismay — have just never really taken to playing with dolls of any sort. So I was skeptical that Playmobil would really be much different. While we were at the toy store, I even showed them the Playmobil aisle to see what they thought of them. My younger daughter picked out an alligator for herself, but both of them were kind of “meh” about the idea of the sets.
The hastily passed USA Patriot Act swept aside the checks and balances that had traditionally prevented the FBI from spying on Americans. It allowed federal investigators attempting to prevent future attacks to seize data such as phone company records and observe private activity such as a person’s book-borrowing habits.
Twitch has been quick to point out that many of its non-gaming categories go hand in hand with activities enjoyed by gamers anyway. But it’s clearly a step toward extending the reach of Twitch — and Amazon — to an audience beyond gamers. It also opens a new front in Twitch’s competition with rival live-streaming platforms, which could eventually include Twitter’s Periscope, YouNow, and Live.ly, among others.
It was an eventful news on other fronts as well, particularly the Robert Mueller investigation. After a long quiet stretch, the special counsel reappeared with an accusation that rather than cooperating, Paul Manafort had lied repeatedly during questioning. Mueller has requested that they move directly to sentencing, and signaled an intention to lay out the case against Manafort in the process—which could wind up giving the best view yet into the entire web of alleged Russia connections to the Trump campaign.
But now, with low barriers to contribution, less-technical users see these areas as easy places they can improve the very software they rely on. (This means little things like cryptic error messages get more humane and tiny one-line CSS changes make websites render correctly in ancient browsers and mobile phones.)
Even at home, Scaife lamented, kids spent less time messing around with stuff that could lead to scientific insights. (I remember him describing how as a kid he made washing the dishes into an opportunity to explore surface tension in water). Hopefully, that’s something that the children of GeekDad readers don’t have to worry about.
The service will cover nine northern provinces at first and most others by the end of the year, a marketing official at Vietnam Mobile Service, which runs Mobifone, told Reuters. “Roaming” lets mobile phone callers use cellular networks in areas their providers do not cover.
One of the best parts for me is he keeps his comics on Creative Commons. To anyone with a blog that means a little something. To those non-bloggers it just means we get to use his comics without seventeen months of emailing pleads for permission to reprint his material. This is good!
Creepy! But maybe not as surprising as it seemed. Smart TVs have gotten in trouble for tracking their viewers for years; the perpetrators have just been advertisers instead of spies.
That version was aimed broadly, at all ages. Now there’s version just for the young-uns, called The Storymatic Kids!.
By next week, all of the 487 entrants will be online, and popular sentiment may shift again.
But one thing will definitely change — the size of the prize the winner will receive.
