Webkinz are one of those products that make you slap your forehead and wish you’d thought of it first. First you get your child a cute, soft, stuffed animal. Then, presumably with your help, they log into the Webkinz World (Flash) website with the unique code on the animal’s tag, and they can do all kinds of cool things in an online community aimed just at kids. My kids got their first Webkinz last weekend, and they’ve been playing with them online (and taking the “real” animals to bed with them) as much as my wife and I will let them.
He said, also, that to the extent he’s considering translations, Arabic isn’t one of the languages in the forefront.
Zdanowicz uses the example of one item in the Commerce Department codebook: a fixed capacitor. Since most people don’t even know what a fixed capacitor is, they wouldn’t have any idea whether it should sell for $5 or $5,000.
Addressing those questions, DeCode gets informed consent for any actual genetic material, such as blood samples, that it uses.
Lucent (LU) began the year with $318 million set aside for such purposes, but actually wrote off only $69 million this year, less than the $112 million it wrote off in fiscal 1999. With the new additions, it ended fiscal year 2000 with a $501 million cushion.
The alignment and density of the nanotubes captures photons from the wee wavelengths of ultraviolet to wide, hot infrared—and all the wavelengths of visible light in between. Then they push that energy out the back as heat. With just the barest fraction of photons that hit the stuff bouncing off, even at a glancing angle, practically none reach a human eye and trigger a human brain. So when you look at something coated in Vantablack, you see a blank. A void. “It’s a nuts material,” Jensen says.
On a typical day, the average person checks their phone 85 times. In total, we spend about 5 hours on our phones each day. Here we explore the fine line between normal phone use and device addiction.
“Sony is struggling to offer a multiplayer gaming experience at all,” Honey said. “Their focus is going to be on offering a gaming experience. One thing I think is really ignored … is the five years that
Side note: I have epilepsy, though not the photosensitive kind. But I have a deep understanding of the horror of seizures, and the dramatically increased chance of death and brain damage many of us with epilepsy live with, in my case, since the age of 4. FYI, deaths related to epilepsy in the US are roughly equal with deaths from breast cancer. There isn’t a shred of doubt in my mind that if the troll hackers could find a way to increase your risk of breast cancer? They’d do it. Because what’s better than lulz? Lulz with BOOBS. Yeah, they’d do it.
Kazaa offers users a computer program which facilitates the exchange of text, images, videos and audio files between individual users on the Internet.
Adding to the complexity is the inherent tension for a site that’s not trying to be a publisher, but rather a community — an invisible distinction that platforms draw when trying to make money off their content. As Burns puts it. “Who are we to decide what’s relevant?”
In this final post of their three-part series, lawyers Daniel Vorhaus and Lawrence Moore of the superb blog Genomics Law Report analyse the legal repercussions of a personal genomics company going bankrupt. In part one of the series Vorhaus and Moore analysed the privacy policies of two representative personal genomics companies, while part two was a detailed examination of the complex legal issues surrounding the treatment of customer genetic data in the event of company bankruptcy.*
• Franz Ferdinand: You Could Have It So Much Better
You Could Have It So Much Better accentuates the same big-ensemble sound and jagged guitar chords that made last year’s debut album from this Glasgow, Scotland, band an instant success. This time they’ve shaped the sound with a more generous portion of pianos and organs.
Offset isn’t the only stock agency that offers high-end images, so they’re also trying to stand out by combining better photos with royalty free licensing. That means that unlike other agencies, where buyers have to negotiate the price of the photo based on things like where it will be used and how many times it will be used (which affect the price), customers pay either $250 for a 3MB file or $500 for 40+ MB file and then get unlimited use. Offset hopes that with a simplified licensing process they’ll sell more quantity, which will benefit both the company and the photographers, who get around 30 percent of each sale.
Shares of IBM, whose revenue has now fallen for 20 quarters in a row, were down 3.7 percent at $163.71 in trading after the bell on Tuesday.
Although sniping has existed in one form or another almost since the inception of eBay, Steiner said the practice has grown increasingly prevalent of late, fueled by experienced auction buyers competing for bargains.
Bossip, by definition, is a gossip blog that reports on public and private figures in the black cultural vortex of reality TV, film, music, and professional sports. And though the site has been in existence since 2006, it wasn’t until this year that it began experimenting with its shamelessly in-your-face headline virtuosity. Upon the release of the Black Panther trailer in October, Bossip offered its own perspective of the online pandemonium surrounding one of its stars, Michael B. Jordan. According to the post, sight of the actor in the preview “shattered the whole entire internet before noon.” (Jordan’s good looks are a recurring topic among certain communities, online and off.) The headline that accompanied it was even more toothsome in its cultural rigor: “Poon-Sizzling Villain Bae Michael B. Jordan Is Destroying Dashiki Drawls Across Wakanda.”
The S&P 500, up 11.6 percent in 2017, is trading at 17.6 times expected earnings, expensive compared with its 10-year average of 14.3, according to Thomson Reuters Datastream.
The shiny details of the new Wired News design are only visible in standards-compliant browsers (Netscape versions 6.0 and higher, and IE 5.0 and higher). But because CSS can be hidden from older, non-compliant browsers, our content can still be read by every available commercial browser, even the first versions of Netscape and IE.
Realizing he was far from alone, Turgeon set up a website where others with bodily allusions to the Force share their art.
“We are convinced that on-demand publishing is, and will continue to be, one of the strongest growth areas for digital printing,” said Elaine Wilde, senior vice president, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Arts Business.
If this sort of thing intrigues you, Abe and Josie have just updated their Vela Creations website with a ton of useful info and resources on things like wind-power, solar power, water storage, grey water, composting and much, much more. They are truly “walking the walk” when it comes to getting off the grid and trying to live their lives using sustainable means, and they are documenting all of their projects and research in the hope that others will be inspired to adopt more sustainable lifestyles. I know reading their site has inspired me to get back to that water collection system project I’ve been talking about for too long now…
(Note: This is the second of a series of posts I plan to write on arsenic and public health. The first, Is Arsenic the Worst Chemical in the World, was published last week).
