“The plane has lost contact at 06:17 a.m. local time,” Djoko Murdjatmojo, the Indonesian Transportation Ministry’s acting director general for air transportation affairs, told reporters, according to CNN. The Airbus A320-200 disappeared from radar observations at 6:18 a.m., he said.

But how did the winds form in the first place? This comes back to the jet stream and the inland high-pressure regions it generated. Air generally moves from high to low pressure, and in this case the low-pressure area off the California coast pulls winds to the west. “The stronger the pressure gradient, the stronger your winds will be at the surface,” says Nauslar.
In a video called “Supernova Sonata,” for example, Parker uses the sound from two instruments — a grand piano and an upright bass — to make compositions where the volume and pitch are based on information gathered about these bright, dying stars.

GC: No, and that’s how it got me. If anything, Michael Bay can bring some more people to the Turtles and that’s what we want. It’s the only cartoon that I’ve been a part of that so effectively brings a fresh new version with all the positive messages in it. It’s so much fun making it.
Twitter finds itself struggling—again—with who can speak on its network and under what terms after two days of shifting pronouncements around its process for verifying users.
A reader called Mr. Cheech said the last official news about the title was posted to Valve’s website Jan. 23, 2001.
McCain has long pushed for an increase in troop levels in
Iraq to stem the violence. Both he and the Republican National
Committee have been using the latest information to show Obama and his national security and Iraq war policy in an unflattering light.
The company’s claim to fame is its mobile app, popular among the younger generations, which allows users to add bunny faces or dancing bear profiles to messages that last only a few seconds. In its first quarterly earnings report, though, Snap reported slowing revenue growth, and warned it may never be profitable.
“We probably have on average maybe nine people going to a crime-watch meeting,” says Assistant Chief Vincent Golbeck of the Dallas Police Department. “And those nine people may be representing a neighborhood of 300 households. So we have to rely on the crime-watch chairpersons and those that were in the meeting to use an e-mail distribution list, or a phone tree.”
“[D]ozens of interviews and a series of internal military reports,” Vanden Brook and Locker summarized, prove “that Pentagon officials have little proof the programs work and they won’t make public where the money goes.”
“I wish the EAC luck, but oversight of these systems is illusory,” said Kim Alexander, president of the California Voter Foundation. “As long as federal voting system standards are voluntary, voters across the country will not have the peace of mind they need to feel confident in their voting systems.”
“I’ve been in this job for 29 years and I’ve never seen a market that is as buoyant, as euphoric, where the customer is just so happy to be coming with us,” he said. “[Consumers] want an experience, they’re collecting memories, and the cruise offers an opportunity to collect memories like you’ve never seen before.”
The authors note how unrelated events are made germane to the rumor, like a sudden glut of Newtons on eBay, which has been cited as evidence that people were getting ready for a new device.
Those top websites all rely on viewers to alert them to objectionable clips – a form of community policing that has been used for years by other internet stalwarts such as auctioneer eBay and classifieds ads provider Craigslist.
This was a big problem. The district has more than 55,000 students attending 114 schools. Nearly 60 percent of them qualify for free or reduced lunch, but only 60 percent qualifying students were taking advantage of it. Only around 40 percent of all students were eating the lunches on a regular basis. It was a wasted opportunity, and an expensive one at that. “The school district was running a huge operation at what ended up being a deficit because kids weren’t really participating,” says Sandy Speicher, an associate partner at IDEO.
According to company literature, over 50% of rejected astronaut applicants have been dismissed due to poor vision. (And just think, contact lens wearers can do away with a few extra bottles of liquids when going through airport security, that is probably worth the cost of the surgery right there!) This new policy could make next years selection all the more competitive.
The deal also links the House of Blues with MTV, two very powerful brand names that offer services not controlled by the major labels. While the recording industry controls sound recordings, live recordings and videos are controlled by the venues and artists.
Now more than ever, we should remember that technology – not the whims of politicians, judges and bureaucrats – remains an important vehicle for preserving cherished values like privacy and free speech.
On that front, I still have some optimism, just because Wealthfront’s embrace of the passive-investing gospel was perhaps never entirely convincing to begin with. Wealthfront was founded by Andy Rachleff, an active investor who made his millions at Benchmark Capital; it was originally called KaChing, where the idea was that it would help investors beat the market. In that sense, maybe it’s just reverting to its active-management roots.
According to the criminal complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Portland, Hawash decided after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States to travel to Afghanistan to join forces with Taliban and al Qaeda troops fighting there. The United States, which blames Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda terror network for masterminding the strikes that killed more than 3,000, launched the attack in Afghanistan to uproot the country’s Islamic fundamentalist Taliban government.
The move also highlights the increasing determination of ISPs to carve out new revenue streams, as they discovered that the traffic-delivery business –- simply being a dumb pipe –- isn’t as lucrative as being a content provider. ISPs like Earthlink and Verizon are now redirecting requests for nonexistent domains to pages with ads, while others are talking about ways to charge companies like YouTube higher fees to put their content on the fast lane to subscribers.
Andreessen: … but I can go on an iPad or an Android smartphone or a Linux tablet and I can access all the same websites and all the same applications and all the same services that I get on my desktop.
Part of the goal is to test the boundaries of cognitive computing and human collaboration. Big Blue is trying to see how far it can mesh the two and is exploring how the human/machine interaction will benefit industries from healthcare to transportation.
You have to laugh at the irony. If all the hype is true and the media landscape is being transformed, then why are the new leaders the same as the old ones? Or, as The Who famously sang, “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”
