Geologic Summary. The steep-sided Tungurahua stratovolcano towers more than 3 km above its northern base. It sits ~140 km S of Quito, Ecuador’s capital city, and is one of Ecuador’s most active volcanoes. Historical eruptions have all originated from the summit crater. They have been accompanied by strong explosions and sometimes by pyroclastic flows and lava flows that reached populated areas at the volcano’s bas e. The last major eruption took place from 1916 to 1918, although minor activity continued until 1925. The latest eruption began in October 1999 and prompted temporary evacuation of the town of Baños on the N side of the volcano.
The Philippine Secret Service are rightly pleased with their $180 umbrellas, and it appears that the news travels fast in the elite world of presidential bodyguards, as we see in this testimonial:
“The value is that it is richer map with more up-to-date information because anyone can fix things,” says Steve Coast, founder of OpenStreetMap. “Users get access to the underlying data and not just a picture of the maps.”
Twitter reported its strongest growth in monthly active users in more than a year and a much better-than-expected quarterly profit, despite stiff competition from Facebook and Snapchat, sending its shares up 11 percent.
I was at Yalta: IKnowthat.com has announced a new application called Faces that allows users to insert a photo of their head into different “educational illustrations.”
Trademark owners have long opposed the idea of adding more domain names, because they see each one as another battleground to protect their trademark. ICANN has come up with some still-tentative procedures for new domain names, and .co says it’s adopting the majority of them.
The Galaxy Note 9’s camera’s improvements are entirely on the software side. An AI-based algorithm that operates locally on the phone can now “see” the scene you’re trying to shoot and, from a database of 20 different scenes, tune the camera to optimize the photo it thinks you’re trying to take. Pets, flowers, street scenes, boring in-office photos, nighttime jaunts—the Note 9’s camera app thinks for a split-second, as though it’s focusing, and suddenly the image you’re about to capture changes ever so slightly. In the quick hands on, this mostly meant that yellow sunflowers were tweaked to look even more yellow, and a plate of tasty macaroons looked extra colorful and tasty. If someone blinks in a photo now, or the photo is blurred, the camera app will tell you.
According to the IRS, that means the hackers had prior access to their targets’ “Social Security information, date of birth, tax filing status and street address” even before they began their attack, as well as the answers to “several personal identity verification questions that typically are only known by the taxpayer.”
Blaster first struck on Aug. 11. Eight days later, the Sobig virus was released and quickly flooded networks and inboxes with millions of spam-spew messages. Sobig has all but vanished for now, but Blaster and its variants are still quite active, according to security experts, who said that many users are still confused by Blaster.
I Sold My Data for Crypto. Here’s How Much I Made
A new wave of companies is peddling an alluring message: Users should own their own data and get a cut of its value, instead of allowing it to be monetized by advertising companies and data brokers for free. Sign up for one of these apps and the buyers will contact you directly, offering cryptocurrency tokens in exchange for information like your bank transactions, medical history, or the fluctuations of your smart thermostat.
For one, there are a lot of planes in the sky. And two, even if you know which planes are in the sky, radar data is delayed, so Wolfram Alpha has to project a plane’s course. And it’s got to take into account that people can’t actually see planes that are very high in the sky.
If you’ve got a wide array of devices to test with you’ll probably want a local network solution – that is, serve your site over your local network and connect all your test devices to that virtual host domain.
But over the last few years, Acxiom has been refusing to even open the mail Bulmash sends.
Wired.com: Your mom comes off as quite the comedian. In your book, are all those transcripts of chat sessions and e-mails and dialog between you and her for real? They’re hilarious.
Conge showcases some of the students’ work on his 3D Toad website. From there, some of the Apple designs find their way onto Internet chat forums where speculative Apple designs are discussed.
Spencer said a new website, to launch in February, will automatically produce and update maps from the e-mailed reports.
Even more useful glitches are gone in the new version. One is called the “Storage Glitch.” If you climbed Link up to a ledge and pulled out his magic wand at the moment that you dropped off the cliff, something weird would go wrong with the game’s collision detection. You’d be able to move around while opening a treasure chest, slip through tiny cracks, walk straight up certain walls or – most usefully – rocket at top speed across the game’s massive open-world ocean.
GM: I looked up on wiki (which could be mistaken!) and it referenced your first published work as 2006. Is that correct? How did you get your first assignment?
A document from a 2008 oversight report indicates that Army Cyber Counterintelligence officers attended a Black Hat security conference without disclosing their Army affiliation. The conference, held annually in Las Vegas and Washington, D.C., attracts hackers and security professionals from around the world. It’s also a hotbed gathering for undercover law enforcement and intelligence agents from around the world who come to learn about the latest computer security vulnerabilities and what specific hackers are up to. The documents don’t indicate if the officers collected any information on conference attendees.
Bill Kunkel, a pioneer of videogame journalism who co-founded the first magazine devoted to the beat and coined much of the lexicon still used in gaming today, died in his Michigan home early Sunday morning. He was 61.
Ehmke says the project caught on slowly at first, but gained momentum after a few major projects adopted it, including Ruby on Rails, an enormously popular programming framework used by companies like Airbnb, Kickstarter, and Twitter. Rails creator David Heinemeier Hansson says it was a fairly easy decision: “It just seemed like a no-brainer.”
“He uses the Internet almost exclusively for fantasy baseball,” said campaign spokesman Jason Sauer, who added that he wasn’t sure whether, until recently, Chandler even knew what a blog was.
