Four of the initial crew will give birth on day 10 of the mission, and their pups – as many as 24 of them – should begin walking around their cages by day 24.
But in the last week, on the eve of the formal start of the 2004 elections, two Democratic contenders took time to talk about a topic that’s usually reserved for spooks, conspiracy theorists and a couple of policy geeks: how the government keeps its secrets. There’s a faint, but real, possibility that this most opaque of subjects could become a full-blown issue in the presidential campaign.
Design for America follows in the footsteps of Sunlight’s Apps for America contests, which sought to bring transparency and accountability to government using open web applications to mine government data sites. Apps for America generated a number of useful apps – like RSS feeds for the House Committee schedule, GovPulse and the Earmark Watch tool, among others. With any luck, the Design for America contest will generate some equally useful and enlightening visualizations of government data.
The analysis will be done by matching the combined ad clicks of people who are logged into Google services with their collective purchases on credit and debit cards. Google says it won’t be able to examine the specific items purchased or how much a specific individual spent.
Zuckerberg goes on to explain that trying to be the web’s arbiter of truth is tricky terrain, considering how much of today’s “news” is sprinkled, if not downright saturated, with opinions, viewpoints and commentary. I couldn’t agree more. It’s a slippery slope indeed.
After nearly a week things are finally really cooking. One day, when the brix level hits 17, means punching down the cap three times (and washing the punchdown tool three times). It’s a lot of work but it means we’re at the peak of fermentation, which means that grape juice is inching closer to wine.
If we still have a GO tomorrow mission control vessel Vostok will leave as well for the Space Port Nexoe. The rest of the crew, including myself, will arrive Friday and Saturday is dedicated all preparations for the launch Sunday.

Professor Gilbert Strang’s Course 18.06: Linear Algebra features a complete set of video lectures, a collection of old exams dating to 1993, a variety of Java applets, a list of required reading and subject assignments.
The image above is one person’s self-styled depiction of how a “voice-to-skull” weapon might work.
RouteRank lists all the information you’d expect from a travel website – schedules, connection times, and ticket prices – and throws in the amount of CO2 each itinerary generates. You can sort the results by price, departure time or CO2 output, making it tougher than ever to ignore the environmental impact flying to that big sales meeting or jetting off to the wine country for a three-day getaway.
The Tencent hackers then used another vulnerability in the Tesla’s Linux operating system to gain full privileges on the car’s head unit, the computer in its dashboard. But even then the group couldn’t send commands to critical driving functions like steering and brakes: The Tesla S’ head unit is separated from its CAN bus by a computer Tesla calls a gateway, which only allows certain commands to be sent from the car’s infotainment system to its driving components. To defeat that safeguard, the hackers simply overwrote the gateway’s firmware with their own. Without code signing, nothing prevents that tactic.
