“What you do is you stand out there and you time how long it takes for five bees to visit,” LeBeun said, up to thirty minutes.
The device, which retails for $199, was approved by the FDA last summer to track men’s sperm counts and rate their reproductive health accordingly.
Cuomo sent a letter to the site, which claims 5 million users. The letter announces his intent to sue the site for violating trade laws by not adhering to its promises to keep the site safe.
The Bush campaign has not responded directly to these pranks. “Our position is that all of these actions are exercises for activists, and we are not taking any action of our own,” said Scott Stanzel, Bush-Cheney ’04 spokesman.
“YouTube actively manipulates and modifies the content in ways that the uploading user clearly does not, including copying, reformatting, and adapting the works… further disseminating them… In operating its own commercial Website, YouTube engages in activities that are reserved to the copyright holder.”

The lanky pathologist’s circuitous route to Silicon Valley had started in South Africa, where he grew up. After majoring in English at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg (“Wits” to South Africans), he’d moved to the United States to take premed classes at Columbia University in New York City. The choice was guided by his conservative Jewish parents, who considered only a few professions acceptable for their son: law, business, and medicine.
“Ultimately, the elections will be between two people. I believe those two people will be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. And for whatever criticisms you have of Hillary Clinton which right now we are just focused on criticisms of her, it will become a compared to. And when you start looking at the insanity that’s coming out the Trump campaign on a regular basis, I don’t think we are willing to take that risk,” Goolsbee said.
Concern grew among cyber security organizations last week that the competition would cripple countless websites, but by Sunday afternoon as the event was drawing to a close there was no sign of damage among the Web’s most popular sites.

“Enter the world of Leechnet,” the site says. “Napster-style file-sharing, but instead of music, Leechnet is about sharing porn! Nothing else.”
There’s a pleasant surprise, then, because Quorn tastes just like chicken. Or, depending on the kind of Quorn you’re trying, it might taste just like beef. Either way, it’s pretty good.
More than a prank, Goatse-ing became, in the words of blogger Anil Dash, “a hazing ritual.” It established an instant bond among those who could stomach it even as it instantly repelled those who couldn’t. Goatse was the perfect totem for a burgeoning web culture that prized free speech and unpredictability. The early 2000s brought scores of Goatse knockoffs: Shock sites like Lemonparty.org, meatspin.com, and tubgirl.com each enshrined a single, nasty piece of porn for the delight of the savvy.
Mark Klein, a retired AT&T communications technician, submitted an affidavit in support of the EFF’s lawsuit this week. That class action lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco last January, alleges that AT&T violated federal and state laws by surreptitiously allowing the government to monitor phone and internet communications of AT&T customers without warrants.
“AT&T is involved in a number of groups in 802.11 and a number of others,” AT&T spokeswoman Ellen Zundl said. “Joining this (HomeRF) organization is yet another way for us to keep open-minded about various technologies.”
Inviting as he wants the community to be, Burns says the platform also vets contributors before taking them on, only accepting five to six percent of all people signing on to become contributors. “We are looking at their socials. When you speak, do people listen online, and are you a leader in your community?” asks Burns.
The year was 1998. At the time, Internet startups were in their heyday, burning through cash to emblazon their logos on television, billboards and the sides of buses. Bartel’s Travelzoo, a discount travel site cobbled together without the aid of venture capital, didn’t have the money for a flashy ad campaign.
Nintendo’s UK website has issued a warning to its readers about the perils of mod chips, explaining what they do and why it’s a Very Bad Thing.
The Republican head of a congressional inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election said he would temporarily step aside from the probe on Thursday because he is under investigation for disclosing classified information.
Backlash against the pole-mounted boxes has been widespread, he added. While some drivers have blinded camera lenses with paintball guns, others have decapitated them with angle grinders. Yet others try to fool the system by using fake license plates, reflective sprays or by claiming someone else was driving their car when the picture was taken.
To me, Staffup Weekend succeeded on several levels. It brought together a group of strangers who quickly developed effective teams that met their deadlines and built several things from scratch. It allowed FutureAdvisor to identify several job candidates at a fraction of the cost of traditional recruiting. It gave me and other attendees a forum for exercising our skills and having them appreciated. That felt great. Moreover, many of us—including the sponsor and organizer—met people we value and continue to value months after the event. None of this could have happened without the combined efforts of Allen and Nicholson.
Tuesday’s order came two weeks after Magistrate Joseph Spero in San Francisco granted Sony the right to acquire the internet IP addresses of anybody who had visited Hotz’s website from January of 2009 onward. Sony has also won subpoenas for data from YouTube and Google, as well as Twitter account data linked to Hotz, who goes by the handle GeoHot.
“So far, there is every indication that the iPod cannot play WMA files,” he said. “Both the iPod packaging and online specifications state clearly that the iPod is compatible only with MP3, AIFF and WAV files. Limited testing on our part suggests that this is indeed a real limitation of the iPod.”
For more than a year, the U.S. Navy and environmentalists have been in close combat over sonar and its effect on marine mammals. On Monday, their fighting will culminate in court.
“Security is a very complicated thing and it seems irresponsible and odd for her to approach the security problem by setting up her own email system instead of working with the State Department to secure their systems,” he said.
Terra said it would keep Lycos’ European portal business and its Spanish-language portal in the United States, Terra Networks USA.
In the year 2000 alone, American companies lost over $550 million due to piracy in Taiwan, according to the IIPA. That led the U.S. trade representative last April to put Taiwan on a “priority watch list” of 16 countries that don’t adequately protect intellectual property.
My only quibble with iRider is that it doesn’t have a built-in pop-up stopper. Instead, it pops ads under the windows you currently have open. The idea, according to the browser’s documentation, is that “pop-up blockers block some pages you might want to see, and deny free websites the ad-views they need to survive.” So iRider has opted not to kill them. Bummer.
I got a pretty nice surprise yesterday morning; Laelaps was listed as one of the “Top 30 Science Blogs” by the Times science magazine Eureka! I was proud to see this blog featured alongside those of Scicurious, Ed, Carl, David, Sheril, Bora, and many of the others who made the list. Even better, Eureka wants to expand the list to include the top 100 science blogs, so be sure to send in your nominations for the best of the best to email@example.com, with “Best blogs” in the subject line.
SpaceX intends to fly to Mars about every 26 months when Earth and Mars are favorably aligned for flight. Musk said he would like to land people on Mars as early as 2024. NASA’s first human mission to Mars is expected about a decade later.
WASHINGTON – The color of the universe is not an intriguing pale turquoise, as astronomers recently announced. It’s actually beige and a rather ordinary beige at that.
In the first part of our Countdown to Big School, my daughter and I covered Art and Science, and in part two we’ll be looking at Biology and History…
As it stands, they wrote, the directive “will cloud the prospects of Europe’s ascendant free and open-source software industry while preserving the dominance of present market leaders.”
This suits Johansen just fine. He’s still strongly opposed to DRM, particularly because he believes it punishes consumers rather than prevents piracy. “People use my programs to put iTunes songs on non-iPod players,” he said. “They’re playing these files legally. Companies shouldn’t use the law to prevent consumers from doing something legal.”
Dan Brown’s bestseller Angels & Demons hits the big screen today. For anyone who managed to miss the mega-bestseller, the plot hinges on a plot to blow up the Vatican using an antimatter bomb – a tiny device with the power of a nuclear warhead. They may sound good in a thriller, but are antimatter bombs more than just fiction?
Some agreed that the hack could have been inspired by the H2K2 gathering –- although no one has claimed credit.
