Jim Daniel, an associate professor of food and nutrition at Purdue University, said the biggest obstacle to creating fat substitutes is getting something that mimics the real thing.
So there’s the bulk of my idea. A sandbox learning app that incorporates video, images, text, worksheets, referrals, and maybe more. Something that a child can sit down with and pose a question or two or a hundred. Something that a child will find easy to use and not at all intimidating. Something that won’t embarrass a child who asks a question that maybe his or her friends already know the answer to. And something that a parent can feel confident about in terms of safety.
We’ll wait to cast judgment on the nuances and performance of Safari (and OS X Yosemite in full) until its official debut, especially since key features like iCloud, Handoff, and Continuity won’t be ready until then. But overall, the changes Apple made to Safari make usability better and enhance the general web experience.

TI, makin’ it in America: Texas Instruments said it will build a $3 billion chip-making plant in Texas, bucking a trend among semiconductor makers to shift production overseas.
“We’re not opposed to technology,” Tatro said. “We’re opposed to the way they’re applying the technology. This is a test bed (to gauge) public acceptance of this. If they get away with it here, somebody else will try something even more invasive somewhere else.”
GitHub has empowered a new generation of people to collaborate, create, produce. Many developers will lament the loss of former cultural norms – like the place of committers or the old fight about which license to use – but the future is already in the hands of a new generation that has moved on.
The genesis of the Leap was born out the co-founders frustration with creating 3D models using current software and input devices: “Something that took 10 seconds in real life would take 30 minutes with a computer” states a quote on the Leap website.
Despite the legal and political resources the FBI has devoted to getting into San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook’s locked iPhone, the agency hasn’t detailed what exactly it believes it can get from the encrypted device. But in a filing in the case Thursday, San Bernardino District Attorney Michael Ramos warned that the phone might contain evidence that “it was used as a weapon to introduce a lying dormant cyber pathogen that endangers San Bernardino’s infrastructure.” In less bizarre terminology, he seems to be suggesting that Farook may have infected the network of the San Bernardino County office where he worked with malware. But the prosecutor offered no evidence of that theory. And as iPhone forensics expert Jonathan Zdziarski pointed out, the district attorney might as well be suggesting that a “magical unicorn might exist on this phone.”
And it’s now set a mobile phone precedent – at least locally – with its official text on the mystery disease.
According to IBM, hackers have compromised around nine billion digital data records since 2013, a third of them medical. A meager four percent of that data was encrypted, though, meaning those credit card numbers, user names and passwords, and social security numbers passed easily onto dark-web criminal exchanges.
The firewall was in evidence last week during a late-afternoon visit to a sprawling, smoke-filled internet bar in the Xi Jia Hui district, where an after-school crowd of fashionably dressed young people streamed in to nearly fill the nearly 200-plus PC stations.
Wired Science has only shifted a handful of paradigms in fields including drug research and genetics, and happily, no paradigm has shifted since the current editor (me) joined the team. But these shifts may have infected some other corners of Wired.com including Autopia and Game Life.
The recording industry claims such services are to blame for a 9 percent decrease in CD sales. It has recently begun to track down individual users.
“Windows is monolithic. Everyone gets the same style,” he said. “You have all these totally different users across the world, and they get the same damn scheme.”
Majid al-Massari is in a Washington state federal prison awaiting deportation to Saudi Arabia, according to the Seattle Times. The al-Massari family, which was exiled to London for radical Islamic beliefs, claims he faces death if forced to return to his homeland, according to a posting on the Site website.
This option often wasn’t necessary when people used fixed and trusted connections, such as their home or office DSL or cable lines. But as Wi-Fi connections, especially public ones, became more popular, hackers began using simple sniffing software to snoop on people’s online activities with the goal of stealing passwords.
Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), has boosted funding for virtual reality video producers since it unveiled in October the $79 Daydream View headset, which straps a smartphone display close to a user’s eyes for stereoscopic video.
But ARA is looking to do something just a little different from other crowdsourcing efforts. While many similar tools assign equal weight to participants’ inputs, ACES will be looking for the most accurate predictors over time and weighting their judgments more heavily than other users.
Curiosity is much larger than her unexpectedly long-lived predecessors, Spirit and Opportunity. This meant that she couldn’t just land bundled inside airbags like the smaller rovers.
Around that time, another opportunity came into my life. Donny had gotten a job offer from his brother in Dallas to be the VP of sales at their milling company. He didn’t know what to do about Good Wagon, which he had grown somewhat to the point that he was making around $6k per month in sales. He made me an offer. 50% of the company and a $3k per month salary to take over and run the business going forward. I took the deal and we went to work on it. By the end of the year, we had our best month on record with around $10k in sales in December.
