The doll and needle, created by BFA graduate Donnie Bugden, are hooked up to the innards of a $4 video game controller Bugden picked up in Chinatown. The character Steve stands in a stark generic office setting and winces when the needle is poked into the doll’s arms or legs. Stick him in the head, and he falls backward onto the office floor. No matter how many jabs he receives, Steve doesn’t die or leave the room, and nobody ever enters to help him.
It was in the Middle East that the “worst hack ever seen” was perpetrated back in 2012. And the attack was against one of the biggest oil companies in the world, Saudi Aramco. It wiped 35,000 computers in hours, and Aramco was forced to use fax machines and typewriters. In a matter of hours, Saudi Aramco’s ability to supply 10 percent of the world’s oil was put at risk.
This is the same model employed by Adobe, which installs both the runtime as well as the application when you download an AIR-powered app.
The GT forestalls that reckoning until the last possible moment. You’ll never feel as if a supercar wants to roll over—because it doesn’t. The worst possible driving outcome is that the rear tires lose grip and the car slides, a phenomenon known as “oversteer”— and one that enthusiasts and professional drivers favor.
Ziad al-Fatlawi, a doctor, said his 12-year-old son Firas was kidnapped three weeks ago on his way back from school to the family home in the wealthy alHarthia area of Baghdad.

“What if, by just noticing patterns, you can reduce that to $200? Now instead of ‘it’s a crisis,’ it’s a preventative visit [to the vet],” says Hild.
Scientists first got interested in the rumbling of the Seahawks nation in 2011. In a postseason game against the New Orleans Saints, running back Marshawn Lynch ran a 67 yard touchdown, breaking through nine tackles on his way to the end zone. The stomping and jumping from crazed fans was so intense that it lit up a nearby seismometer. At its peak, the so-called “Beast Quake” shook the sensor about 1/100th of a millimeter, with an acceleration of about 1/20,000th of earth’s gravity.
Unfortunately, the “revolutionary” services aren’t detailed, or even hinted at. Maybe automatic software updates?
This article has been modified from the original, which in one section implied Singularity University was restricting intellectual property beyond what students develop in their team projects, and which contained a quote implying the university might be taking full rather than partial ownership of some projects, contradicting what had been stated previously in the article. A Singularity U spokesperson says “the IP policy was tightened to protect all participants’ rights to the IP created within the Team Projects, to moderate any disputes that may arise among various team members, and not to increase SU ownership or as a profit motive.” (August 18 5:10pm ET)

He’s since won battles freeing the nation’s catalog of copyrights, Oregon’s book of state laws, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark database. Now, he’s after congressional-hearing videos, expensive but copyright-free building codes, and the Code of Federal Regulations, in addition to all the court filings in the PACER database.
It can seem, just as Hsieh says, like downtown Las Vegas is one enormous in-progress brainstorm, a fantastically bankrolled exercise in municipal free association. At his apartment in the Ogden, where he often hosts meetings, Hsieh maintains a wide wall covered in multicolored Post-it notes filled with ideas from the community about what the neighborhood still needs. (Hardware store! Gay bar! Community garden! Cupcakes!) Rather than actively recruit personnel to fill various niches, Hsieh and his team encourage people who show interest—or who interest them—to come visit, stay for a while, and find their own way. Newcomers sometimes live for months free of charge in the Ogden, courtesy of Hsieh, with no requirement but that they collision freely and enthusiastically with others.
Bozoma Saint John—”Boz” to her friends—is every bit as boss as her masterful performance suggests. She’s led Apple Music’s marketing division since April 2014, a short three months after she joined Beats Music and it was acquired by Apple. But she’s no stranger to the music industry. Before joining Apple, she ran the music and entertainment marketing group at Pepsi-Cola’s North America division, where, according to the website XO Necole, she landed deals with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Eminem. Oh, she also reportedly convinced Beyoncé to agree to perform at half-time during the Super Bowl in 2013. No big deal.
Christine: We’re also trying to create a community of artists. For example, our artist for this series is Lisa Butler, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. She has more of a collage style of work, which we absolutely love, with the fabric pieces, the hand-made illustrations, and paper. In other series we may have watercolor, or acrylics. So we really want to bring forth a lot of different artists who may not have the chance to work for major publishing houses. So we want to create a community of artists and writers.
“We have chosen to have the winning bidders responsible for the verification because it would not be feasible to have people send their absentee ballots all the way to Austria and have us send them back to America within an appropriate time frame.”

In his statement Wednesday, McMaster belatedly acknowledged Craigslist’s shuttering of its erotic services category, “as we asked them to do.

This game looks super cute, I can’t wait to check it out. He’s based on many years of research, on technology that not too long ago would have required a super computer.
A while back the good people at SparkFun asked GeekDad if any of the writers would like to try out their new ProtoSnap line of Arduino-compatible development platforms. Since I have been interested for some time in learning how to make crafts and projects with programmable electronics – and especially since I have no electronics experience whatsoever – I took them up on their offer.

1. Ask permission, not forgiveness–and keep your eyes up: Want to take a picture of a cosplayer? Ask, and ask politely, rather than snapping the picture covertly (these are some great suggestions on good and bad times and ways to approach cosplayers, and what you can and can’t ask for). If they say no, then accept that the answer is no–don’t try to sneak the shot in anyway. Under no circumstances should you take a picture that focuses on a single part of a cosplayer’s–or anyone else’s–body, rather than the whole person. And if you’re posing for a picture, getting something signed, or asking a question at a panel, keep your eyes on the camera, or the face of the person you’re talking to.
