A mock-up package provided by Battaglia boasts it contains four “puros rollos” — a double-entendre that literally means “pure rolls” but can also be understood as “pure nonsense.” It shows a grinning cartoon character giving an enthusiastic thumbs-up. It’s not an exact likeness of Trump, but its swooping blond locks are a clear nod to the president’s famous hairdo.
Gamervision‘s tagline is “How gamers see the world,” and you can tell that they don’t just talk the talk. The site has reviews, articles, discussion forums, and even videos — some informative, some downright silly and occasionally hilarious. The site’s been up for several years, but they’ve only recently added a feature that should appeal to serious video gamers everywhere: a place to swap, sell 0r buy games from people who care as much about them as they do. And all features of the website are absolutely free.
Microsoft Corp is rolling out upgrades to its sales software that integrates data from LinkedIn, an initiative that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told Reuters was central to the company’s long-term strategy for building specialized business software.
By midday their time, Gulf-region media, including the Saudi Gazette and Al Jazeera, along with The National in the neighboring United Arab Emirates, had fleshed out the story. Those reports added a few key details: The victims had all been treated in a single hospital “over the last few days.” And by midday East Coast time, Helen Branswell had a story up at CBC News, featuring the WHO sending a not-very-coded message to the Kingdom’s government:
Intuit introduced a mobile payment product 18 months ago to help mobile professionals like plumbers accept payments on the go, but quickly realized that without that familiar credit card swipe, customers weren’t ready to use the app. In addition, feedback from Intuit customers and the buzz around new companies like the delayed Square, from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, demonstrated to Intuit that there was untapped demand to help local businesses swipe credit cards with iPhones in both stationary and mobile settings.
When you Google image It Follows, you probably see a pretty young blonde tied to a chair looking scared. Or a pretty young blonde in a swimming pool looking scared. That pretty young blonde is Maika Monroe, the face of fear in Follows and part of a young crop of actresses in Hollywood steadily building resumes that are atypical for most young ingénues.
LabDoor opened up its service to the public this week, starting with testing the most popular energy drinks and vitamins on the market, including Red Bull, Five Hour Energy , One-A-Day and Centrum vitamins among others. “Next we’ll test creatine powders, sleep aides, and herbal supplements,” Thanedar says. “Eventually we want to add cosmetics and over-the-counter medications, so you can find out if there’s really a (quality) difference between a generic painkiller and Tylenol.” For example, what exactly is that carnuba wax doing in your generic ibuprofen? “If you look at painkillers and muscle gain supplements and powders, most manufacturers tell you what’s in them,” says Thanedar. “But even if you read the label, you still wouldn’t understand what those ingredients do.”
Edward Fotsch, the chief executive of Medem, said his company’s fledgling iHealthRecord system protects patients’ data with encrypted security features modeled after those adopted by the financial-services industry.
The complaint blamed the nano’s defectiveness on the film of plastic resin that covers it to protect it from damage. Previous versions of the iPod were coated with thicker and stronger resin, the suit said.
“They’ve been looking for a way to attack the culture of the Cuban exile for a long time, because Communists see culture as an ideological weapon,” says Belkis Cuza Male, an exile writer who has been the target of La Jiribilla’s attacks on several occasions.
If for some reason the polling place doesn’t have your information, and if your state doesn’t allow you to register day-of, you can still ask to cast a provisional ballot. You can also do this if you try to vote at a different polling place than you are assigned to (though certain states won’t count provisional ballots if you aren’t in the correct precinct), or if your name has changed. You may also be asked to do this if you forget your ID and you live in a state with strict voter ID laws.
How many people are infected? Is there a cure? Should I crawl under a rock and hide? Assuming that the bug is a virus, what kind is it?
There is one thing we can learn from this. If you ever find yourself thinking “I wonder if they make …?” then the answer is almost certainly a big “yes.”
Puzder also has talked about deploying robots to replace American workers who demand higher wages. Robots, he said, are always polite, never late and don’t sue their employers for discrimination, according to an interview with Business Insider.
The teenagers appeared to enjoy this real world problem solving and I was impressed that Mr. Zimmerman was ready for such an impromptu and unscripted challenge. That’s the type of stuff that happens all the time at Conner
Prairie and is one of the main reasons we keep going back year after year.
That, and the chance to throw hatchets with the fur trader!
The malicious power of botnets was displayed in April when Russian attackers launched sustained denial-of-service attacks against thousands of government and commercial websites in the small European republic of Estonia, to retaliate for Estonia’s relocation of a World War II memorial statue of a Soviet soldier.
The tech industry didn’t always see eye-to-eye with the Obama administration on surveillance and encryption, but that didn’t stop the industry from developing a remarkably close relationship with the White House during the Obama years. White House staffers like former press secretary Jay Carney and former senior advisor David Plouffe landed high-profile jobs at tech companies like Amazon and Uber, while former Google employees, such as corporate attorney turned patent office director Michelle Lee, found jobs in the federal government. According to information analyzed by The Intercept, Google’s lobbyists met with the White House employees 427 times in between January 2009 and October 2015.
GD: Which books are you reading this summer?
JW: Just to confirm my geek cred… I just finished reading the excellent The Hammer and The Blade by Paul S. Kemp, which was a big throwback to the fantasy of my early teenage years. Just a ton of fun. So now I am following that up with a copy of The Icewind Dale Trilogy (all three books in one!) by R. A. Salvatore. I’ve never read his work before. And I’m also always listening to an audiobook – that’s easy for me to fit into my schedule – so Glen Cook’s The Black Company is in rotation right now.

Another service, Yellow Arrow, encourages people to plaster adhesive arrows – each assigned a unique code – to physical landmarks or even other people (Yellow Arrow encourages posters to get permission before placing stickers on private property.)
“Because such gestures cannot cure the 3DR breaches, your gestures will not circumvent Gearbox’s legal action(s) in response thereto. Gearbox has instructed me to inform you that the pending case against you and 3DR is not something that you can hope to individually resolve through private appeals and emotional sidebars; Gearbox views its legal case as a formal matter with very dispassionate consequences.”
We’ve been using Weave since its debut and have found it a handy, if slightly flawed way to keep multiple instances of Firefox in sync. For example, when moving from PC to PC, Weave ensures you get the same results when you start typing into the Smart Location bar. Your most recent set of open browser tabs can be reproduced on multiple machines, as well. But despite a few updates, Weave’s potential – to totally sync every aspect of Firefox across computers – has remained largely untapped.
Dustin Hoffman’s character, Ben Braddock, gets one word of career advice from a neighbor in the classic movie, The Graduate: “Plastics.”
“Had we not removed these URLs … we would be subject to a claim for copyright infringement, regardless of its merit,” Google said in its letter.
According to The Washington Post, the Obama administration said Healthcare.gov processed 18,000 insurance enrollments during the most recent 24-hour period, “nearly double the previous record.” Great. But consider that on Cyber Monday last year, Amazon filled 306 orders per second. That’s 26.5 million orders in the most recent 24-hour period. This year, it’s hard to imagine that number won’t be higher.
“Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers. It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied, or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground. And it is absolutely unacceptable when it is done by someone with no name hiding on the Internet,” she said. “We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.”
Coffey, the former editor of the Los Angeles Times, was hired in November 1999 to replace Lou Dobbs, who also anchored the “Moneyline” program and left the network to join Space.com, a website devoted to news and information on space.
Fed up with Star Wars fan sites revealing plot secrets of his upcoming films, George Lucas dispatches two stormtroopers to take care of a list of unscrupulous webmasters.
Google is working on a fix it hopes will provide some clarity over which technology providers in the ad-buying chain are responsible for issuing refunds. It is also working on technology to ensure advertisers automatically receive a full credit back from Google and its partners if incidents occur again.
