“The presence and prevalence of such filters is an indication that the spam problem has grown huge, and is being largely dealt with by people who have little or no inclination to do anything beyond plugging in a spam filter, cranking its settings up to maximum paranoia and forgetting all about it. Filters need to be checked, tweaked and trained.”
Faceball emerged at Yahoo’s San Francisco offices when employees looked for ways to let off steam after a long day’s coding. Google may have a killer cafeteria, but Yahoo has the joy of hitting colleagues in the face, square-on, with a pink or blue ball.

Fernández said that while preparing a story on the coverage of the royal wedding, he decided to find out if those domain names had been registered and by whom. When he saw the domain names had no owner, he registered them himself so that they “would not go to the hands of cybersquatters or of anybody willing to use the names of Prince Felipe or Letizia Ortiz with political purposes or to damage their image.”
In Berkeley, California, firefighters were ordered not to fly large U.S. flags from their trucks because officials feared the rigs would be targeted by anti-war protesters.

The Real Deal: Wondering what role newcomer Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) will play in the next Star Wars installment? If Tran’s interview with EW is anything to go by, she might just be enough of a fan to help remind the good guys what they’re supposed to be doing in the first place. “Poe Dameron is super cool. Finn’s super cool. Even though [Rose] is good at what she does, she’s not known… She’s not cool. She’s this nobody, this background player, which is what makes her interesting. She’s not the best. She’s not royalty. She’s someone who is just like everyone else,” Tran said.
“You can participate in that trading community, and it’s right in your pocket,” Warsop said, adding that customers can instantly swap cards with other fans across the globe. “In the physical space, it tends to be an actual transaction.

A reputation is a hard thing to shake. Like when a UN moderator introduces Mark Zuckerberg by commenting that he is almost unrecognizable without his hoodie.

That means higher costs for larger businesses. The NLRB also desires to saddle larger companies with greater bargaining responsibilities of smaller businesses they contract with. It’s an injustice that one business can now be charged with labor violations committed by another business – and be railroaded into bargaining with a union that is organizing another employer’s workers.
Aside from changes in recording, the technological changes in distribution have also had a major effect on recording artists. “The other side of that has been the whole internet and the demise of the record industry; when I started, the big thing you had to do was find a record company. You couldn’t do it yourself; you had to be with a record company. And now, anybody can do it. The downside is, there’s a lot of possibilities but there’s no path, there’s no prescribed path. My daughters, the Chapin Sisters, for as well as they sing, and write, and their history, if this were 30 years ago, they would have a big record contract, and there would be a company who would be working hard to make them happen. But now it’s really got to be them, doing it themselves.”

Update at 12:30 ET on 2/20/19 An earlier version of this article misstated why builders choose to orient detectors in a particular direction.
Until now, though, that required going to the IFTTT website or app to set up the necessary connection. Starting today, developers can embed IFTTT within apps and enable users to connect the hundreds of apps that the service supports.

Still, Metallica tickets sales were strong on their summer swing this year, and musicians like Sheryl Crow came to the defense of the embattled band.
Beyond the view of the cameras are many more meteors, too dim to be picked up. But the number of meteors the cameras do capture provides a clue: an uptick in the number of visible meteors is usually correlated with a rise in unseen ones, too. Cooke and others at his office relay this information to spacecraft operators, who use that information, however imprecise, to decide whether they want to steer away from areas with more space debris.
