Kelly said that despite getting on board with the show, Netflix’ first original series, he didn’t realize how successful the company would become.
The local details are even more depressing. Areas that could see a complete loss of area that is dominated by snow during the winter months include: the northern Rockies, the Cascades, Puget Sound, the Blue Mountains, the northern Basin and Range, and the Colorado Plateau. And other snowy areas will see drastic reductions, including the Sierra Nevada, the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains in Utah and the Snake River plain.
After all of the Big Sit! results are tabulated, a bird species is randomly chosen to become the “Golden Bird.” Any winning group that has seen the Golden Bird is entered in a drawing. There’s a catch; if you win, you don’t actually get a prize. You get to pick what non-profit wins $500 in Swarovski Optik gear. There are additional prizes via eBird.
On PBS tonight: a show with powdered wigs, tight bodices, death by guillotine, unwanted pregnancies and a continuous stream of intrigue and romance. And it’s not Masterpiece Theatre.
“Much of this stuff the documents describe is 100 percent innocent. The suspicious part is the business about security clearances rather than the equipment,” Bellovin said.

The presumptive GOP nominee is scheduled to arrive late Wednesday and address the delegates Thursday evening.
But after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the company expanded its focus to information security courses. It now offers around 200 classes a year, generating about $15 million in annual revenue.
Before most people had ever heard of the digital currency bitcoin, Brian Armstrong, a 27-year-old engineer at the home-sharing website Airbnb, thought it could make him a lot of money. At the time—spring 2012—Airbnb was moving a reported $500 million in payments annually in 192 countries through a patchwork of financial networks, and each one claimed a transaction fee. An anonymous, encrypted, government-free online version of money would simplify all that. It would be faster, more secure, and vastly cheaper.
Spearheaded by Michele Tobin, the Walker Shop’s retail director, and Emmet Byrne, the Walker’s design director, Intangibles was born of a seemingly obvious observation. Despite the store’s mission to represent the museum, it ignored the fact that, like most art institutions, so much of what the Walker does is based on fleeting experiences like gallery visits and live performances.
Next was Helen Arney, sadly the only woman on the bill, a singer-songwriter cum trained physicist who sang us some great songs about love in a laboratory and why doing “it” like an animal might not always be a desirable thing (child-friendly if they know the facts of life):
By now you may have heard about the fiasco that was Fyre Festival. The social media-fueled endeavor, co-founded by rapper Ja Rule and his tech entrepreneur partner Billy McFarland, promised people “two transformative weekends” on a private island in the Bahamas, with “the best in food, art, music, and adventure,” and, if the promo videos were any indication, models like Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski sunbathing in skimpy bikinis. This would-be tropical Coachella emerged seemingly out of nowhere but soon vaulted to viral status after the organizers hired some 400 Instagram influencers to post about the event. The campaign promised luxury, beauty, and exclusivity.
Canal Plus charges that after the code was published on the Internet, fake cards quickly became widely available to consumers.
The latest string of hacks attacking Target, Neiman Marcus, and others raise an obvious question: How is it that nearly a decade after the Gonzalez gang pulled off its heists, little has changed in the protection of bank card data?
Ubisoft took heat from PC gamers this year when Assassin’s Creed 2 and Settlers 7 were released with DRM that required a constant Internet connection to play.
Which brings me back, as promised to the FDA. Following that Dartmouth report on poison levels in brown rice syrup, the agency announcedthat it was doing its own study of the issue. The federal report was scheduled be completed last month. Obviously, it wasn’t so I’ve been asking the FDA’s public affairs office about it (in fact, making a pest of myself for the last three weeks) and I’m told that the report should be finished by the end of this month. Do I expect the federal agency to suddenly have all the answers to a complicated environmental poison? I don’t. But do I expect agency officials to live up to their responsibilities to public health and safety and set some minimal guidelines?
The reason, according to a source close to the situation, is that ad rates are not high enough in other countries to cover the Last.fm’s costs there.
But The Field Study Handbook is no ordinary reference manual. Its tagline is “Travel anywhere, make sense of the world, and make a difference.” This seems to tease the book (and Chipchase himself) as a kind of talking cure for the FOMO-fueled ennui that plagues a certain breed of professional: the “creative” who shares Chipchase’s self-described luck at “hav[ing] turned curiosity into a career,” yet not-so-secretly envies the fact that his version seems to prioritize international adventuring over refreshing one’s Twitter feed. The $110 Handbook’s first printing sold out on Kickstarter within a week, driven in part by interest from internet-famous non-field researchers like Jason Kottke, who blogged that he “can’t wait to get [his] copy.” Apparently, many people are very “willing to purchase” Jan Chipchase being himself—and at considerable expense. (Hundreds of backers upgraded to even pricier versions as Kickstarter rewards.) But what are they really purchasing? And why?
Not this phone. It sat by the cash register unclaimed all the next day. “I don’t know anything about this stuff, but I know enough to know this phone was different.”
