“This is what, in some ways, the Internet does best: Gather money,” Chideya said. “If you want to talk about the uses of the Internet in politics, campaign contributions are a natural. For motivating voters, it’s maybe not so good. Informing voters, maybe not so good. But getting money out of voters? Real good.”

Having been besieged by comments against the outage plan, FCC officials won’t predict how the debate will be resolved or when. Said Jeff Goldthorp, chief of the agency’s network technology division: “We’re in the process of reviewing the record carefully.”
“After I [heard] about the first raid, I wrote [McAfee] saying, ‘Oh my god! They shot your dogs! I can’t believe that!'” said Essley. “I received a reply that said, ‘We’re fine. Things have calmed down. Time to come to Belize. Moneypenny will arrange the details.'”
Visitors can cut the data in various ways. For example, they can display information for a single disease such as dengue fever, all 53 diseases in the database or any number in between. They can choose which and how many of the four health news sources to display: ProMed-mail, the World Health Organization, Eurosurveillance and Google News. They can also filter reports by country.

So how did we get here? As internet connections have gotten faster, publishers and developers worry less about efficiency. That’s led to a growing number of analytics scripts, animated ads, and high-resolution photographs. Each individual script may be small, but eventually they add up, slowing down page loads not just by adding bulk but by increasing the number of connections required to load a page.

As a denizen of Edinburgh, however, what most gets me is the price: $20 for a one-day pass, $30 for the two-day weekend. That’s less than the price of a beer over here!* Tickets go on sale on Monday, so if you live near Chicago, you would do well to snap ’em up fast.

Skip the analog barometer and buy a digital one that uses an electronic pressure sensor. As atmospheric pressure increases, the weight of all that air presses down on it, sending an electrical signal to the motherboard. Tracking changes in air pressure plays into forecasting storms and the movement of cold and warm fronts. Connect this sensor directly to the motherboard inside the waterproof container or alongside the thermometer and hygrometer in the ventilated housing.
Each player’s property will be tagged with a number that indicates the level of complexity of what’s on their property—number of bricks, behaviors used, etc. The more complex the property, the higher the computing power you need to really appreciate it. While there isn’t a scale yet for how to apply the raw numbers to processing power, it does give you a rough, relative look at the difference between properties before you decide to visit. It is also sort of a status symbol: since the only way you get bricks and behavior modules is by playing the game and completing missions, a really complex property shows that you’ve done a lot in the game.
Despite the apparent ease and affordability, building a submarine is not for everyone, PSub’s Keefer warns.

The release came a week after a blog post by industry lobbyist A. R. Hodgkins, following up on the hearing where he had earlier testified. Again he questioned USDS’s alleged lack of focus, its practice of hiring people outside the usual channel, its competition with the private sector, and even its need to exist past the current administrations. He didn’t mention any of its accomplishments, its promise of more victories, or its potential to influence the wider activities of government by introducing the methods that made American tech companies wildly successful. It’s all a matter of control, of making sure nothing goes awry, he was saying.
The core idea of integrating giving with social networks has been bolstered in recent years thanks to high-profile online fundraising campaigns. About half of the $355 million raised for relief in Haiti is estimated to have come in online, the same ratio as donations to the 2012 presidential campaigns. And it taps into a longstanding enthusiasm for Facebook among non-profits, a reported 179,000 of whom signed up for the social good app Causes after it launched in 2007. Causes broadcasts donors’ generosity to their friends in the hope that doing so would encourage more giving. That’s an idea that has resonated with many.
Download the Google Photos app (free, iOS and Android) and sign in to your Google account. You’ll be prompted to turn on “back up and sync,” which automatically saves photos and videos you take on your phone to your Google Photos library when you have internet access. It’s wise to keep this handy feature on, so that even if your phone takes a dunk in the beautiful seas of Sayulita, you’ll still have a backup of all of your vacation photos in your Google account.
Bhat and Phadte prefer the clarity of labeling an account one or the other. If someone disagrees, they can look in aggregate at where their model is messing up, and improve the accuracy of the classifier. “Those angry users end up being valuable because if they weren’t angry and vocal, your model would never learn,” Bhat says.
In his decision blocking the Trump administration’s revised travel ban, Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii writes that he didn’t have to psychoanalyze President Trump or his staff to clearly see the executive order’s intention was to ban Muslims. All the proof he needed was right there on television—and on Twitter.
The FTC plans to launch a website so consumers can register online. Beginning in September, telemarketers will be required to check the list every three months to determine who does not want to be called. Those who call listed people could be fined up to $11,000 for each violation.
