So Harris contacted a Hagel opponent, Democratic hopeful Charlie Matulka, a construction worker and first-time office seeker, two weeks before he was to square off against incumbent Hagel at the polls.
Just days after threatening to jail a political opponent should he win the presidency, Donald Trump’s got a new campaign website that’s so very … Trumpian. “Together, we are making waterboarding part of the Republican Party again,” it declares. Also, “Together, unleashing, perhaps all of our nuclear weapons.” Truer words have never come out of Trump’s mouth.
“Allegations in Wired that we have been sent 260,000 classified US embassy cables are, as far as we can tell, incorrect,” Assange or someone else connected to the group wrote. The group also tweeted: “If Brad Manning, 22, is the ‘Collateral Murder’ & Garani massacre whistleblower then, without doubt, he’s a national hero.”
Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Snap secretly filed for a $25 billion IPO, expected to take place sometime in the first half of next year. Clearly, Snap is putting together a fully integrated ecosystem where users can communicate in the most natural and fun way possible and advertisers can reach its coveted demographic of 18 to 34 year-olds. That’s a powerful platform.
“It’s always fun to watch Tesla’s character or inventions incorporated into alternate universes,” said Mehta, whose production company Helios Entertainment plans to spin off The Inventor into transmedia iterations like games and apps (with other inventors to follow).
Military personnel are concerned that moving to another band of spectrum will take years and dangerously stall military exercises.
Grant Morrison’s mind-warping narratives have supplied the comics industry with much-needed ambition and credibility, but can he pack the house during a dedicated comics convention in a doomed city? We’ll find out at the first MorrisonCon, slated for this fall in Las Vegas.
__The hacker notifies the vendor, who may – or may not – patch.* __The vendor may patch mission-critical customers (read: those paying more money) before other users. Or, the vendor may decide not to release a patch because a cost/benefit analysis conducted by an in-house MBA determines that it’s cheaper to simply do … nothing. *
At issue is how Dropbox uses encryption, and, more to the point, how it described its system to users.
This very expensive hobby is about more than snatching up the coolest specimens. It’s about lost youth, self-identification, preserving the past, and—though most collectors won’t admit it—hero worship and secret cosplay. There are some things in life more thrilling than watching your favorite movie late at night while clutching a screen-used prop from the same flick in your trembling, sweaty palms, but it’s a very short list.
To help get him ready, Timmy’s Volunteer Costuming Corps are there to make sure he never goes out in the same costume twice. Every costume Timmy is photographed in is the handy work of a member of the Volunteer Costume Corps. The program started three years ago and since then, Timmy’s closet has been bursting at the seams with over 100 costumes.
Much of discussion is about the moratorium on drilling for petroleum resources in The Outer Continental Shelf, or the OCS, areas of the United States, which consists of:
Yet, in contrast to the DiskOnKey, ThumbDrive requires a driver to be installed on Windows PCs (it is not yet Mac- or Linux-compatible). The company recommends that drivers be downloaded from the Internet for those who want to use the ThumbDrive on more than one computer.
Linuxgruven hasn’t made an official announcement of its closure yet, but its phones are disconnected, and directory assistance has no current information for its St. Louis headquarters. The website is “being redesigned,” but e-mails and calls to the site administrator were not answered.
Rowling indicated Pottermore would include information she has “been hoarding for years about the world of Harry Potter,” a fact which by itself will no doubt serve to draw in numerous fans of the books, hungry for more details about the world since the last book was published four years ago. She also said the site would make available audio books and, for the first time, e-books of the series.
“We started to sunset other applications in favor of Palantir because there wasn’t another system out there that [could do] these kind of mission-critical analytic tasks,” says Sergeant Peter Jackson of the LASD and JRIC. “But Palantir did, and so much more.”
I’m embarrassed to say that until writing this post I had neglected to visit Desert Essence’s website. I first come across the brand at my local organic market, which carries a limited selection. I was astonished to find out how truly vast their product range is, and I cannot wait to try out as many items as possible. If this company made cars, I would buy them. If they had a school I would send my kid there. If they started a religion I would convert. Really, this stuff is that good.
Even if you aren’t a gadget lover, CES should help drive home the fundamental truth of today’s web – devices, they are a comin’. Webmonkey has compiled helpful resources for creating responsive design in the past, but the field is new and evolving rapidly so here’s an updated list of links to help you get started responsive, future-friendly sites that serve your audience’s needs whether they’re browsing with a tiny phone, a huge television or the web-enabled toaster of tomorrow.
Other bloggers feel that even if their readers aren’t worrying about their health, they’re still expected to be coming up with the next post with little or no delay.
When considering the future of the open web on mobile devices, it’s easy to see that the desktop’s days as top dog are numbered.
But this doesn’t explain why his map never caught on outside his clique of followers. Interrupted maps are a hard sell, especially when they challenge people’s general view that the continents should hang from north to south. Cahill’s butterfly projection suffered from the same problem. Despite over 30 years of relentless promotion by Cahill himself, and resurrections by later admirersthe butterfly still hasn’t caught on.
So do the Pre’s perks (beautiful hardware and software, compact size, keyboard, swappable battery, flash, multitasking, calendar consolidation) outweigh its weak spots (battery life, slow program opening, ringer volume, Sprint network)? Oh, yes indeedy. Especially when you consider that last weak spot might be going away. Verizon Wireless has announced that it will carry the Pre ‘‘in the next six months or so.’’ Can you imagine how great that will be? One of the world’s best phones on the best U.S. cell network? If the story of Palm’s rise from the ashes really is like a movie plot, then that twist will give it one heck of a happy ending.
Mobilizing some 125,000 petitioners, Weinstock raised awareness of the Jew search term placement on Google. Along with countless other website owners and bloggers, he encouraged a Google bombing campaign, a technique in which links are directed toward a preferred site to raise its ranking. They won the skirmish, but the war continues.
As a practical matter, much of this initiative centers around portable tablets real and imagined; the highly-anticipated Apple tablet falls into that latter category although Condé Nast has acknowledged that its prototypical digital magazine was designed with this non-existent product in mind. Other initiatives run the gamut from the creation of new paywalls (a favorite topic of consortium member News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch) to some sort of pay-for-lots-but-not-for-everything model, like Steve Brill’s Journalism Online venture.
However, proving lascivious intent in court is extremely difficult. The prosecutor would have to demonstrate that the producer of the material intended to elicit a sexual response with the images or that the subscriber viewed the images for sexual arousal.
Mekas: Less and less. Movies can be private and personal. Books are written for everyone and published, millions of copies for some. Everyone has their own. They are accessible to all. That hasn’t diminished the value and importance of literature. It’s the same with films.
“From a network perspective, Kerry’s site is not too bad as these things go. Most websites have nasty security issues. Few sites are written by professional programmers, and even fewer are written with security in mind.”
“Today’s news reflects what we know: Consumers love technology but frequently need help getting the most out of it,” said Jeff Shelman, senior director of external communications at Best Buy Corp.
In some ways, the tactics have worked: the number of Twitter’s total monthly active users rose to 302 million for the first quarter, up 18% from the same period a year ago. Last quarter, Twitter reported adding just 4 million new users, the smallest jump in quarter-over-quarter growth for the company so far. Costolo promised investors the company would rebound in this past quarter, which it did accomplish—amounting to a small win for Twitter. Twitter’s first quarter adjusted earnings also came in at 7 cents per share, beating analyst estimates of 4 cents per share.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) wasn’t immediately available for comment following oral arguments.
Political blog advertising represents the latest twist on the Internet fund-raising strategy pioneered by the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean, which raised millions of grass-roots dollars from its Blog for America website. Chandler’s campaign is the first of several that have started advertising on political blogs as a cost-effective way to reach a national audience.
