They simply happen to be the ones I like best and, definitely at least one of them is very obscure.
Tech leaders from America’s biggest companies arrived at the White House to meet with President Donald Trump Monday, to discuss innovative ways to streamline government services, trim regulations and cut federal costs.
He expects buyers to get four or five pitches for an average vehicle, but hopes that number will double within a year. For their part, dealers can subscribe to daily E-mail alerts and RSS feeds to see if anyone is dying to take that leftover 2010 Aveo off the lot.
Off the shelf, you get integrations with dozens of other services — so that, say, piping in every bug report or help request or Twitter mention of your company’s name is a cinch. Developers can easily plug their favorite version-control and project-planning tools directly into the Slack brainstem. “Slash commands” — an update on old IRC practice — let you use Slack like a command line interface. This means that some workers can trade in their cumbersome time-tracking software for a simple “/done” in Slack, and others can use the venerable “/me” syntax to add stage directions to their messages. So if you type this:
In college, at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, he needed to earn extra money. “But I didn’t want to work at Taco Bell, so I went to the assistant department head and asked if I could do something, anything.” He became a research assistant in the high-energy physics group, and the very next summer that work led him over to CERN. He worked on-site every college summer after that, and once for a nine-month stint. He continued on this track in graduate school at the same university.
It’s surprisingly easy to get the two confused. Both are tall badasses known for saying outlandish things. So we threw some quotes at Mike Colter, who plays Luke Cage in Netflix’s new series, and asked him to guess who said them—Nic Cage or Luke Cage.
TV videogames are due for a disruption. Is a $99 console called Ouya the device that could do it?
The U.N. says China could have 10 million HIV/AIDS sufferers by 2010 unless it acts decisively.
This comes at a time when space exploration is facing a deepening gloom amid incidents such as the catastrophic February loss of the space shuttle Columbia as well as a moribund U.S. commercial launch market. (NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe announced recently at the National Space Symposium that the space shuttle may be flying again before the end of this year.)
With questioners ranging from a talking snowman to a man strumming a guitar, the users of YouTube proved once again that the masses are, if nothing else, more unpredictable than your typical debate moderator.
IDC analysts predict that by 2004, privacy will be a $9 billion business. That raises the stakes in the game between copyright and intellectual property companies and consumers.
To get started head over to the Flickr Geo privacy page.
In humans, it’s considered just plain lethal in a dose of 5-50 mg/kg, translating to a killing dose “between 7 drops and 1 teaspoon for an 150-pound adult.” Much less for a small child, obviously. It belongs to a class of neurotoxic compounds called organophosphates, which derive from phosphoric acid, and which include both nerve gases and pesticides. Their primary mechanism is to disrupt production of an enzyme (cholinesterase) which is essential to regulating chemical signalling in the nervous system.
This is an important test for Trump. Our foreign worker visa program (H1-B) is broken and needs an overhaul, and the administration has been circulating a draft proposal for weeks. Let’s hope Trump learns a lesson and doesn’t make the same mistakes. If not, the nation’s most powerful industry appears ready to fight him every step of the way.
Not everything is wonderful. The eight-month-old baby has cerebral palsy and is still very fragile.
I celebrate this civic activity. But it’s all quite primitive so far. Plenty of maps filled with plenty of dots characterize this early stage of 311 development, and the notion of citizen-city “co-creation” of information and services is more talked about than real.
There are also a number of videos of the fumarolic activity near the summit of Mt. Baker. These were shot during a gas sampling expedition in 2006/07. David Tucker summarizes the fumarolic activity on Baker as:
The DC Blockchain Summit also served as a stage for the launch of the Blockchain Research Institute, a multimillion dollar research effort into blockchain use cases, opportunities, and implementation challenges that will span the next two years. The institute’s founding members range from tech companies (Accenture, IBM, SAP) and finance institutions (Nasdaq) to blockchain startups, global corporations (PepsiCo), and even the government of the Canadian province of Ontario.
We’re bringing a talented team of editors, writers, photographers and videographers to capture the best and worst of CES in all its Vegas-infused glory. Here’s how to keep track of what’s going on, as well as an introduction to who will be contributing to reports, videos and photo galleries.

Margulies shuttles between coasts and cities for DJ gigs as well as for his band, Tiny Machines, which makes mellow, melodic music as different as can be from hobotech. Working and wandering, by the way, is what separates the hobo from the tramp (who wanders but only works when necessary) and the bum (who neither wanders nor works).
Reinhoff showed a slide of the various protections that the company has put in place: DNA samples are kept in a locked and alarmed room with a video camera and motion detector that undergoes regular security checks.
The bill would do two things. First, it would allow sex trafficking victims to get the justice they deserve by removing the law’s unintended liability protections for websites that knowingly facilitate online sex trafficking. Second, it would allow state and local law enforcement to prosecute websites that violate federal sex trafficking laws.
A major concern of intellectual property owners is protecting that property on the Net and setting a price for it. But Robert Trebor, a self-described computer hacker in the original “good sense” of the word, says authors can depend on the honesty of their users and should offer the work for free and just ask for a tip.
