Bolt starts off with a tiny lead, but after 0.75 seconds the indy car has caught up. I need a bigger difference in starting acceleration. Let me drop the indy car down to an acceleration of 9.0 m/s2. Here is the new plot. Also, since we don’t really care about time, this is a plot of Bolt’s lead distance as a function of his distance.
We asked Monkey Bites readers to tell us their stories about bugs and strange happenings within iTunes 7. The responses, which can be read in the comments of yesterday’s post, pointed to several key problems. Windows users seem to be having the hardest time getting iTunes 7 to work.
While Freedom of the Press Foundation takes care of the day-to-day operations of the site, 20 different press freedom groups help support its mission, including a steering committee headed up by the Committee to Protect Journalists. Groups like CPJ and Reporters Without Borders already work to catalog press freedom issues in other parts of the world, of course, but it usually takes a journalist being imprisoned or killed to register as a violation.
“If your strategy is going after the big bucks, why wouldn’t you go after CNN?” he asked. “But if your strategy is to get some early wins first with some small-fry porn sites, and then take on the big boys, then this is a good idea.”
I mean, what exactly is the point of Chromat’s Adrenaline Dress that expands to make you look like a terrified animal when you’re upset?
Since March, there have been at least three reported incidents of personal data being stolen for the sake of identity theft from DMV offices in Nevada, Florida and Maryland.
It works like this: It takes a basic search service from Teoma, and blends it with sites that are deemed black. RushmoreDrive (which is named after its Charlotte, N.C. street address) has a database of
6 million “black” sites, which includes Honda and CNN. They compiled the database by creating a root list of
1,200 black sites, and then they followed the visitors of those sites to see where they went to next to expand the database.
On the other hand, a new group of independents, the Electronic Publishers Coalition, condemns the use of the criminal provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act against Sklyarov.
As for the French, it’s nice they’ve consolidated the documents in one place. But good luck trying to access the website with all that UFO info; apparently overwhelming interest in flying saucers and little green men has caused the server to crash. I had no luck myself.
And even though launching satellites may sound like less of a legal hassle than digging trenches for Internet cables, satellite companies face their own regulatory issues, including the possibility of being required to censor content for local governments. “By international law you can only provide service into a particular territory if you have permission from the sovereign country,” Rusch explains.
“I felt in the crosshairs all the time,” Jordan recalls. “I know he’s an extreme case. But it was almost like a silent big brother.” Instead of the warm-and-fuzzies so many Slack users get, Jordan got a “horrible I’m-being-spied-on feeling,” and eventually sought therapy — then found a new job.
It’s not that hackers used to be good, and they somehow turned bad. No; it’s that hackers have always been human, and, at first, they just didn’t have many real temptations. Nowadays they do. After three ardent decades of digitizing the planet, alluring opportunities abound to fleece the ignorant and helpless.
He writes everything in Markdown and uses Pandoc to incorporate templates. He also admits that he “stole” the majority of his ideas from Mark Pilgrim‘s scripts. No worries – the web is built on so-called “stolen” code, and he did the right thing by telling us where he got it.
Larholm said that all the vulnerabilities listed on his page, discovered by various security experts, went through rigorous testing and acknowledgment by Microsoft before they were published by their disgruntled discoverers.
Volokh said: “In context, nobody is going to be confused. Nobody’s going to think the Welles site is endorsed by Playboy. They’re going to think it’s just run by a former Playmate of the Year.”
For people who are concerned about the reduction of individual identity to a name and photo, or automatically having that information shared with anyone and everyone who has your e-mail address – a much wider pool than Facebook’s Friends or Twitter’s followers, at least if you use Gmail – this could be quite troubling. Gizmodo’s Mat Honan went so far as to write a post titled “It’s Official – Google Is Evil Now.”
It sounds like the sort of employer-employee business dispute that’s usually solved with a civil lawsuit.
Bidding nearly closed on Europe’s mobile market: Analysts speculated that the key German auction for new generation mobile phone licenses was nearing its end on Wednesday as six consortia from Europe and Asia put over 46 billion euros on the table.
Google declined to comment. The company launched a sponsored Wi-Fi hot spot in San Francisco’s Union Square district in April with a startup called Feeva.
“It’s nice to have the Web to put QuickTime versions of our spots up. We’re coming up with shorter messages and trying to make the most of that,” he said. “But it doesn’t even begin to do what television could do if it became a free marketplace of ideas. Imagine if McDonalds was able to come on and say, ‘Big Macs are fantastic,’ and five minutes later we could come on and say, ’53 percent of McDonalds’ calories come from fat. Why don’t you rethink your diet?'”
That’s why Richard suggests that companies need to start testing employees with companies that have Trojans sent to them as a way to test whether they can be duped or not.
Technically, a complete electric DeLorean is about a week in the future. Right now they’ve got a garage full of a DeLorean shipped over from Dallas and a turnkey electric car conversion kit that includes a 1.21 jiggawatt 90 kW engine and custom designed Lithium-ion batteries that fit the DMC-12 perfectly.
“Today with your phone in your pocket, people can track pretty much where you are. You log on to Facebook, they know where you are. When you log into our app, we know where you are because we automate movie subscription essentially by what theater you’re close to,” he said.
Remember, scientific journals are way more competitive than anime nerds. And AAAS publishes Science, one of the most dominant publications on the planet. “I had to convince the others that we were not going to steal their stories,” says Broadbent, who coordinated the collaborative EurekAlert effort. She did so by organizing the service as an independent arm within AAAS.
But that feel-good message seems to be lost on FedEx. The company claims that Avila is infringing on its trademark and its copyright. The day after Avila launched the site in June, FedEx asked him to take it down, claiming he had violated the DMCA.
The brains behind a doomed antispam service are turning their technology into an online swarming tool for activists, hoping to subject politicians and government agencies to the kind of mass pressure Blue Frog once inflicted on spammers.
In an email from Slaughter dated June 22, which was not among the ones published by New America, Slaughter appeared distressed about an upcoming meeting with Susan Molinari, the former Republican congresswoman1 turned Google’s top lobbyist. Slaughter insisted that Lynn provide answers so that she could explain why Google wasn’t informed about an upcoming antitrust conference or about Warren’s speech.
My wife (who grew up on a farm) and I were both impressed with the level of detail that went into the set. One of my favorite details is the little swallow’s nest. We actually had a nest of these on our front porch back in Tribune, and I love that there’s a baby swallow with its yellow mouth wide open. The barn roof has some solar panels on it, and the electric fence has a little battery that hooks up to it. There’s a milking stool and a pail for hand-milking, but there’s also a small milking machine with two little milk cans. The pigs have a little feeding trough where you can pour the food into the top of the bucket and it spills out into the trough facing both sides of the pen. And speaking of the food…
