The Real Deal: The secret origins of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s K-2SO were revealed in a Marvel comic book this past week, and the tale might have raised some unexpected issues. According to the Star Wars: Rogue One—Cassian & K-2SO Special, Cassian Andor reprogrammed the Imperial droid against its will in an attempt to avoid arrest during a mission, prompting at least one website to question whether or not there’s an unpleasant rape analogy hiding just under the surface and waiting to be discovered.

Digitization has two key benefits: It will make the information more accessible, and it helps preserve the original paper reports, which are in very bad physical condition.
It’s almost as if major labels and startups are digging from opposite ends of the same chunnel – the majors by reducing staff, focusing on core objectives, and borrowing ideas from startups, while the startups expand by signing and crowdfunding talent or juxtaposing major label catalogs with grassroots music.

The price of Eric’s dice ranges from $2 to $5, depending on faces, ink, and size. Since he makes them himself, he is able to ship them out very quickly.

Check out Eric’s dice offerings (you may also be able to talk him into creating wholly custom dice for you), and expand your own collection!

That stuff is all crap, and I agree completely with him,” griped one man, who was a frequent Park target, in an interview with me.

While Korber and her computer contributed a time line to the debate, Hahn’s team has traipsed through the jungles of Africa picking up chimp feces and urine. Analyzing those samples for genetic traces of SIV, they have found that different subspecies of chimpanzees harbor different variants of SIV, and only one of those variants is the likely ancestor of HIV-1, the virus responsible for infecting more than 60 million people worldwide.
