One of the weirder ideas, Wright said, included plans for a button installed in a cockpit that a pilot could press to gas the cabin and knock out passengers. Another required crew members to shoot a hijacker with a chemical-filled device that looked like a huge umbrella.
In addition to the hard forks of bitcoin, there are now countless alternative cryptocurrencies, sometimes called “alt-coins,” that aim to solve some of bitcoin’s shortcomings. Litecoin, for example, is designed to process transactions more quickly than bitcoin, while Monero focuses on creating a more private alternative.

“The state of health care in its current form is unsustainable. For 95% of the people it is cost effective, it is the 5% of the population who are chronically ill that cost the health care system $1.5 trillion a year,” Sculley tells FOX Business. “[If you] significantly lower the cost of health care to these chronically ill people, we’ll solve health care. The politicians just don’t know that it’s possible.”

After a day of phone calls on Sunday, Gil and Ahmed had their team, but their mandate wasn’t immediately clear.

The group was headed by a skinny 28-year-old named Dan Lee, and when he danced onto the stage that night the audience started dancing with him. Lee—whose nom de rap is Tablo—had a puckish charm, a sly grin, and a reputation as a genius. In South Korea, Lee was already a superstar. He had released four number one albums with Epik High and published a best-selling collection of short stories in both English and Korean. Talk show hosts almost always found a way to mention that he graduated from Stanford in three and a half years with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English. Though that would probably count against a rapper in the US, back home he was lionized as a symbol of success.

One of Verizon’s first customers is the Phoenix Suns basketball team, which wants to know where its fans live. Scott Horowitz, a team vice president, said: “This is the information that everyone has wanted that hasn’t been available until now.”
Code-M isn’t a product line yet. Rather, Nwokorie and Wolff Olins are launching a series of workshops in which creative thinkers are asked to create products that can provide invaluable services in the developing world while becoming viable commercial products everywhere else. One of the first products designed with that in mind is Little Sun, a solar-powered LED lamp designed by artist Olafur Elliason. It is sold in design shops in the US and Europe, subsidizing its distribution in Africa. Along a similar vein, Nwokorie’s partners are trying to reinvent the malaria net.
“By including that, they want to get around the Rio court case,” says Ethan Ackerman, a senior research fellow at the University of Washington School of Law. “This is statutorily overruling that court case. This way they can sue the player manufacturers.”
Most of the time, we are in what’s called “hibernation”, when the spacecraft operates in a quiet mode, sending back a beacon signal each week. While in hibernation, the Student Dust Counter will be measuring dust in the outer solar system. Once a year, we perform spacecraft and instrument checkouts. We also wake the spacecraft up briefly to realign the high gain antenna with Earth as needed. This year, that will happen in November.

The stories themselves are going to be really good, I think. Matter’s founders, Giles and Bobbie Johnson, are both first-rate journalists, and they’ve quietly amassed a list of really good writers and editors they want to work with. They have a smart model: rather than soliciting detailed pitches, they’re more interested in writers coming to them with vaguer ideas. The writer then gets matched to an editor very early on — before the piece is even formally commissioned — and the final article comes together as a collaboration between the writer, editor, and publishers.
__GD: __What’s it like working on the screenplay? Obviously you’re familiar writing screenplays, but is it easier turning your book into a movie, or is it easier starting on a screenplay from scratch?

Amusingly, initial demand for the Pi was so great that the main Raspberry Pi site, as well as the sites of Premier Farnell and RS Components were immediately overwhelmed by a stampede of enthusiastic buyers.

In Colorado, which sports some of the country’s worst (or best, depending on your view) weather, keeping the highways open when snowfall is measured in feet is a monumental task. Some mountain passes in the state get more than 400 inches of snow per year. The law requiring that big rigs carry chains to help with traction in winter weather is in effect from September to June. Loveland Pass, at 11,990 feet and with a steep 6.7 percent grade, is kept open all winter for trucks hauling hazardous materials that can’t go through the famous Eisenhower Tunnel.
