The Google Chromebook, a type of stripped-down laptop, isn’t a practical mobile device for many people — mostly because it basically turns into an expensive paperweight whenever it can’t find a Wi-Fi connection.
(If you are interested in this game, hurry. Tasty Minstrel is a small company which only has ordered 2,000 English copies of this winner. The first printing will go fast, so get it while you can.)
The University of New Mexico’s group for advancing women in science submitted a letter signed by more than 100 STEM professors supporting the NGSS. Local papers were flooded with letters to the editor. And on the day the Public Education Department held an open hearing—a Monday, at 9am, in Santa Fe—so many people attended that not everyone could fit in the room. A few weeks later the state’s education department overturned its own proposal, and agreed to adopt the version of science standards that New Mexicans had wanted in the first place.
The two co-authors could not get visas to attend the ceremony, and delivered a videotaped acceptance speech.
You can drag across several pages’ “close” buttons rather than clicking your way through a plethora of tabs to close them. You can copy a chunk of text from an e-mail, instant-messenger screen or any document that contains several URLs and then paste them into iRider to open all the pages. And – one of my favorite features – you can bookmark multiple pages at once, and even send them as a group to a new bookmarks folder.
Famous bullshitter Keenan went on a spiel about being a Putt-Putt golf champion in his younger days, Mrzyglocki said.
Liukas has long been a part of the code literacy community. After studying programming in college, she founded a coding group for women called Rails Girls, which focused on the Ruby programming language and its Rails framework for building web applications, and she was one of the first employees of Codecademy, a New York outfit that’s the most well-known of the online hacker schools.
GD: How does it feel to be the first to see the Jupiter event? What were your first “out loud” words?
When NASA decided whether to approve or stop open source projects, it didn’t look at the software itself. Instead, it based the decision on descriptions the developers wrote up, explaining what their code was supposed to do.
When we have a nation with a divorce rate of around 50%, high rates of serious drug addiction, families without sufficient structure and balance, and values that far too often prioritize immediate gratification ahead of sacrifice and hard work, of course we’re going to lose our competitive edge. Government can’t solve those problems. People have to solve them themselves by changing the way they think, behave and act. Refusing to do so only sets you up for failure.
The slow search prevents the crawler from creating excessive traffic on a website, or drawing attention in the sites’ server logs. Den Uyl declined to say what user-agent the Xenon software reports itself as, but it’s likely to be variable or configurable on the tax investigator’s part.
I’m wondering why Google removed all of the “guitarist shreds” videos from YouTube. Those videos are clearly parody, and as such, are covered by the Fair Use affirmative defense. Please explain why you took them down – and if possible, let me know who requested that the videos be deleted, so I can take this up with them.
Hactivist said he does not know whether anyone has used the replacement bar codes. Re-code’s aim, he said, is to get people to discuss how prices are set. He says Wal-Mart is an appropriate target because of its anti-union stance and the way it crowds out smaller retailers by undercutting their prices.

UPDATE: The iFixit site shows that the boys have the iPhone, but have yet to take a hammer to it.
Still, for casual purposes, like hosting some photos for friends and family or sharing some files, Opera Unite works admirably well.
One venture capital firm, CRV or formerly Charles River Ventures, has apparently taken this to extreme, adding a bright red overlay to their homepage with F-Trump in bold white letters, although they were more explicit about it. While that may seem remarkably low brow for a VC firm, there might be more to it than you think.
Warner Bros.’ friends at Nokia and Verizon teamed up to allow you the chance to commit your friends to Arkham Asylum.
“This market is exploding,” said Joltage CEO Michael Chaplo, a 20-year AT&T veteran. “In five years, most public space will be wired for Wi-Fi.”
Snoopy dance! My son was accepted! My homeschooled son was accepted to University of Hawaii, Maui!
__Duffy: __ It was kind of a funny conversation. We were buying their cameras off of Amazon and basically flashing them with our own custom firmware. They didn’t even know people could do that. We were putting a sticker on them that said ‘Dropcam’ that actually covered up the Axis logo. We figured this is our camera now anyway. In hindsight, we were actually able to say that was perfectly legal, but at the time Axis actually called us up and said, ‘We see what you’re doing here, you’ve got to stop doing that or we’ll sue you. Your other option is to partner with us and we’ll maybe allow you to put a Powered by Dropcam sticker on the device instead of covering up our logo.’ We said, ‘hmmm have the company sue us or partner with us? I think we’ll partner.’
The fundamental force driving this change—this pivot from defense to offense—is a shift in how power flows from technology. In the beginning, the communications revolution made computers affordable to the masses. It wired devices together in a giant global network and shrank them down to the size of your hand. It was a revolution that empowered the individual—the lone programmer with the power to create in her pocket, the academic with infinite research at his fingertips, the dissident with a new and powerful way of organizing resistance.
This action got him visited by the FBI, who later came back, smashed open his front door, and seized his computers and other belongings. It resulted in calls for his arrest – the most visible by Rep. Edward Markey (D-Massachusetts) – who has since recanted. And it’s gotten him more publicity than he ever dreamed of.
Verizon’s Deutsch said the recording industry seems to be using the case “to teach Verizon and all the service providers in the future that we shouldn’t dare challenge one of these subpoenas.”

This is a small list of the overall observations. You may also see some of these observations popping up in other weeks as many observation programs consist of several observations over time.
KVERT reported that during 29 January-5 February seismic activity from Kliuchevskoi was above background levels and lava continued to flow down the NW flank. Strombolian activity periodically ejected material 300 m above the crater, and phreatic explosions occurred from the front of the lava flow. Satellite imagery revealed a large daily thermal anomaly at the volcano. On 30 and 31 January, gas-and-steam plumes rose to an altitude of 6.2 km (20,300 ft) a.s.l. The Level of Concern Color Code remained at Orange.
