Science is Fun is where University of Wisconsin-Madison Chemistry Professor Bassam Z. Shakhashiri shares the fun of science with more home science activities.
Red Eagle Entertainment, one of two production companies credited in the opening of the pilot, is well-known to Wheel Of Time fans, but not in a good way. In a blog post mere weeks before his death in 2007, Jordan lambasted Red Eagle and provided some details about the tumultuous working relationship regarding their adaptations of his work:
Some expanded access is on the way. In December, British troops at their home bases will be able to upload their own bomb data, a first for JKnIFE. And in the coming months, NATO will get to view another secret JIEDDO website: the Counter-IED Operations Integration Center Portal, which profiles insurgent bomb networks.
I’m not seeing the positive message here. I worry this is another way young women and girls are going to feel bad about their bodies. To my mind, using the ideals of inner bravery for the cause of transforming your body is a mockery of any supposed positive message that Brave attempts to make.
There was also a new trailer (above) for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, a ridiculous name but at least better than 358.603/2+5 Carry the One or whatever that last game was called. No release date.
Before the first airing of The Code on July 27, about 700 postcards were sent out with an image and a code. Collaborating on Facebook, participants in this first stage soon discovered that each postcard image was a thin horizontal slice of a three-dimensional Platonic solid. Several of these “perfect” shapes then had to be combined and arranged into three concentric spherical shells – revealing the complicated nested sculpture that would be the grand prize.
While Vice’s content is a far cry from 2012, when the site featured interviews with naked female models, the site still skews male. “I’ve worked here for over six years now, and we’ve always been heavily male,” Shannon Kelley, Broadly’s publisher, tells me about Vice. “Women certainly read the site, and love the site, but it’s just always been a more male audience.” She notes, however, that it varies from channel to channel within the Network.
Before teaching, Conge was a digital artist and “demo god” for Alias. He has used 3-D design programs on the Mac since 1984, when he picked up Swivel 3D, an early 3-D program that generated simple volumetric shapes and primitives. It was running on a black-and-white Mac Plus.
The Planetary Society and Project Voyager also see the partnership with the alien search project as a way to possibly drum up traffic to their own sites. Both plan to add links to content on their own sites from the SETI@home website.
I’m guessing, since many people I know have their hands in something related to social media (as in investors or working for) my opinion that it’s all going to swell and die is probably not a popular one.
He said that so far, the government has failed to prove that other technologies would work better.
Tired: $42.99 isn’t cheap for a cable (especially when many dock manufacturers throw in a 3.5mm mini plug cable for free); the Hydra is significantly bulkier than that free mini plug cable.
The Air Force declined to comment directly on the virus. “We generally do not discuss specific vulnerabilities, threats, or responses to our computer networks, since that helps people looking to exploit or attack our systems to refine their approach,” says Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis, a spokesman for Air Combat Command, which oversees the drones and all other Air Force tactical aircraft. “We invest a lot in protecting and monitoring our systems to counter threats and ensure security, which includes a comprehensive response to viruses, worms, and other malware we discover.”
And JIEDDO is still spending big money on gadgets to spy on and disrupt every part of the IED network. Drones in the skies over Afghanistan hunt teams of bomb-planting insurgents. Forensics teams match latent fingerprints on bombs with Afghan bad guys whose thumb-scans and eye-prints are stored in biometric databases. JIEDDO pays for radio jammers to stop the frequencies insurgents might use to detonate the bombs.
Peregrine CFO pleads: The former chief financial officer at Peregrine Systems pleaded guilty to conspiracy and securities fraud after agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors who are investigating accounting irregularities at the software company.
It was interesting how, if you didn’t know it was from Breitbart, it would’ve seemed like it was from The Onion. It’s like a parody, but it’s real.
