Bill Nye (of “the Science Guy” fame) has teamed up with VSP to teach us about eye health. In these VSP EyeFiles videos, he talks about various eye health myths and other information, all while sitting in a laboratory full of bubbling things, microscopes and other science paraphernalia. Each video is short, about two minutes, and is both silly and informative. The videos give the impression of being aimed at kids, but a lot of the content seems to be aimed at adults. So, watch these with your kids! And watch the videos in order, as the underlying storyline makes a little bit more sense that way.
The U.S. has levied a host of sanctions against Iran due to its nuclear weapons program. President Trump added additional sanctions last July, though it’s unclear if Apple’s decision to remove the apps is related to that development.
It was that kind of magical and mystical fantasy that drew me into Gaiman’s writing. When he started to release solo novels, I was more than eager to pick them up. Gaiman weaves worlds that provide an ample escape from the real world, but by creating other seemingly real worlds. It’s those other worlds you get lost in, and keep you reading.
“You have all these people for the first time becoming independent contractors and running a business,” Clark says. “They didn’t really expect that when they signed up, and then it’s like, wait a minute, how do I pay my taxes? What about benefits and 401k? This is harder than I thought.”
So we’re aiming for openness on two levels: One on the fact that there’s more sharing, and another on the fact that by having these open standards, you’re constantly moving towards a place in the industry where there will be more and more sharing, right? So people can bring their information anywhere they want. Anyone can use the platform.
Does Connecticut Science Center pass the second test? I’m going to hedge and say that it’s not a fair test. The Museum of Science can trace its roots back to 1830 and its current building has been open for almost 50 years. It’s been a GeekDad destination of choice for generations. Its 1.5 million visitors a year dwarfs the 365,000 the Science Center had in its first year of operation.
“In some cities, these areas are quite well mapped and quite well monitored. In Sao Paulo in Brazil, for example, they have a very big program. All of the data has been collected, it’s online, it’s monitored regularly – but that’s unusual, there are many many cities where people don’t know at all what the situation is.”
Moonves said there’s been a cloud over the television season. Viewers haven’t created any new hits, preferring to stick with a few old favorites, and he senses people have trouble concentrating.
Warby Parker can already accept Apple Pay on both its app and on the web, and this can significantly improve its outlook. Increasingly, mobile phones are where the company acquires new customers, and that’s difficult—whether it’s working through an app or a web browser. People don’t have a full-sized keyboard where they can enter payment information. And studies show this is true across the industry. But Apple Pay can grease the wheels. According to Stripe, people check out 58 percent faster with Apple Pay on Instacart (a Stripe customer), and Apple’s pay service have more than doubled conversion rates on Indiegogo (another Stripe customer).
Hello all and welcome to this week’s GeekDad Space Report! Hot off the presses last week was the delay in the landing of the Space Shuttle Discovery by a day. The Shuttle did indeed land the next day at the Kennedy Space Center. The launch of the SES 1 satellite went off on time while the launch of the secretive X-37B was delayed by a day due to the delay in the Shuttle landing but did launch successfully.
In an e-mail interview with Wired News, HDNet chairman Mark Cuban effectively dismissed the notion as a pipe dream, along with the surprise deal announced Thursday that’s supposed to make this purported future a reality.
“There are a lot of products that don’t meet every standard right now,” Ruby said. “There’s room to grow.”
In other words, Google makes broad-based knowledge more important, not less. A good education is the true key to effective search. But until our kids have that, let’s make sure they don’t always take PageRank at its word.
“We’ve almost gone into what I call ‘relaxation amnesia.’ We forget how to relax and how to let go,” Dr. Susan Albers, a clinical psychologist at the Cleveland Clinic, tells FOXBusiness.com.
Now, says Sehn, Snapchat is doing much more to pull the plug on third-party apps. This week’s announcement that the APIs have been fortified — enough, in fact, to fix the third-party problem — is less a binary switch than an acknowledgement of an ongoing effort. Just check the iTunes App Store to see what users of those now-endangered third-party apps are saying. In reviews of SnapCrack, which promises to “save all the snaps you get from friends,” commenters are frustrated that the app they bought for $5 wasn’t working. “This app used to be the best,” wrote one reviewer on the iTunes App Store. “And now for the past few days it keeps saying it can’t connect to the Snapchat server. An update is needed, something, anything!”
“Due to the deals we have done over the past 12 months, we have added over 1,500 new people to the company,” Armstrong said in the email, which Reuters saw. “As we have settled into those changes, there are a number of areas that require consolidation to improve operations and limit the amount of hand-offs in our business processes.”
The ultimate effect, in California at least, is that Palantir has achieved the holy grail of Silicon Valley startups: a network effect with some lock-in power. You can’t leave Facebook because the data you want—updates on family and friends—is only to be found there. And if you cancel your Spotify subscription, you can’t take the music with you.
However, Fraser may still face legal problems with patents and trademarks, legal experts said. Apple is notoriously protective of its intellectual property, and has not hesitated to go after hardware manufacturers, software publishers and websites for infringement.
Liza is 56, a thin, wiry woman with elf-like ears and bright eyes, an artist who grew up in the Rocky Mountains. She worked at Microsoft for 10 years and started her own web development company with her partner before the electronic attacks, the stalking, and the surveillance began. She knew it had to be some form of technology attacking her—she’d worked in the technology industry for more than a decade. She knew what it was capable of.
Welcome to Photoshop tennis, an online contest in which the players are Web designers, a Photoshop document is the ball, and a send button is the racquet.
-Questions about the financial health of the German bank caused investors to panic again after a report that 10 major hedge funds are reducing their positions. Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB) sent out a statement to assure investors that its financial position is stable.
But the long-awaited subscription service from Napster has yet to launch, and impatient music traders have migrated to other file-sharing programs such as Freenet, BearShare and iMesh, where pirated music, movies and other computer files can be found for free.

Though Page designed the posters on his own, he says the IYA organizers took notice and were so impressed they requested to use them for some events they have planned for the end of the year.
“The intellectual property wars are raging,” Saltzman said. “This is not meant to be either a battle in those wars or a settlement in those wars.”
“I’m pissed off enough for 100,000 people,” said Gruber, whose actions led Scannell to set up a website for those affected to sign up for a potential class action lawsuit. “I love JetBlue, watching the Food Network from one coast to the other blows every other airline out of the water, but I’m going to be flying anybody else until they do something about this.”
Toey moved to Florida in the fall of 2007, at Gonzalez’s invitation, to live rent-free in Gonzalez’s Miami condo.
