“I’ve found that connecting with charitable organizations via Facebook is extremely efficient,” says David Gilmore, a residential real estate broker in Bend, Oregon, who has donated via the Causes app on Facebook to animal rights groups and pro-Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender rights groups. “The Causes App, in particular, makes it easy to voice my support for various groups and to invite friends to lend their support as well. Making a request for support or donations through a Facebook status update seems to be a great way to advertise your organization or movement and has certainly made me more aware of groups that I did not even know existed. This is definitely using the power of social media for good.”
Zombies is a tile-based game that currently offers up 10 additional expansion packs for added tiles, even more devious Event cards, and alternative scenario rules that guarantee you’ll never get bored. The company has an outstanding website that not only offers up additional rules and scenarios submitted by fans of the game, but they also offer up free PDFs of the various rules from the original game as well as the expansions. You’ll find bags of zombies, bags of zombie babies, and bags of zombie dogs for purchase. Plan on dedicating an entire living room if you wish to simulate the end of the world with three or more expansion packs. (Or is it an entire un-living room?) One or two expansions will only take up a large dining table. Get it? Dining table? I’ll stop.
Of course, this is all caffeine-fueled speculation. I could be way off. But whether they’re used just for training our foreign buddies or for spiriting commandoes around the world’s remotest battlefields, it’s telling that some of the Air Force’s most secret airplanes are also the oldest, simplest and surely cheapest.
Newman said behemoths like Microsoft and IBM, despite their late arrival to the space, have the funds and customer base to compete as long as they want.
Earlier this month, Uber landed another $1.2 billion in funding, and according to reports, this values the company at $40 billion. That figure is stunning in and of itself, and ordinarily, it would indicate a very good year for a young startup. But Uber has been rocked by a series of scandals that, taken as a whole, are shocking even by Silicon Valley standards. Leaked documents revealed a program that looks suspiciously like a plan for sabotaging its competition. Other stories exposed “God View,” a tool that Uber employees can use to track the whereabouts of individuals. Buzzfeed reported that a Uber senior executive suggested digging up dirt on a journalist that had criticized the company’s sexist advertising. And an Uber job applicant claimed the company gave him unfettered access to user data as part of a job interview. The only question is: What scandal is next?
Moore and alleged hacker Charles Evens, 25, were arrested today on conspiracy and computer intrusion charges for allegedly stealing photos of hundreds of victims.
“I’m not going to extrapolate that what one member writes is going to translate into an attack, but some of the members of the forum are active in the field,” Raisman said.
So when I found out that Tuesday was Pancake Day, I had to find a way to participate. I didn’t think our usual pancake recipe would suffice. It has sour cream, sugar, leavening and spices in it. And only one egg. My pancakes are really tasty, but they just wouldn’t do for this occasion.
This clip isn’t as good as watching an entire RiffTrax presentation, but it ain’t bad. Happy wood anniversary, fellas!

The iPhone is 10 years old! Take a look back at how the smartphone grew from gadget to essential.
Taken together, the two new policies represent a shift toward larger creators. YouTube is now excluding extremely small channels from advertising all together, and instead focusing both its monetization and its moderation efforts on larger, more valuable channels.
The pivot point in this battle isn’t actually flights from the US to the Middle East. It’s that in 2013, Emirates started flights between the US and Europe (with connections on to its hub), cutting into US airlines’ most profitable routes.
The carriers are under “tremendous pressure” from customers to provide more reliable service, said Shawn White, director of external operations at Keynote Systems, which tracks the performance of websites and the internet.
On the company’s sales in 2015, Gaffney said, “Residential, we did about 18.” But this year, “so far, residential alone, 12, and something like eight corporate jobs,” Gaffney told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
If you look closely at thriving online and tech communities, you’ll see that oftentimes there is, indeed, a culture of hope and creation present. Most of Flickr’s photographers, for example, take and upload pictures not to make money but to be participating members in a like-minded community. This is evidenced by the site’s popular use of Creative Commonslicensures (which allow third parties to freely use images with varying degrees of restriction). Long-term open source projects like Wikipedia and Linux also emphasize creation for creation’s sake. The web is full of communities and projects like these that emphasize hope and creation…
