“In Wisconsin years ago we eliminated all but a fraction of the state tax on manufacturing as well as on agriculture, our two biggest industries. So if you’re a business thinking about moving to Wisconsin right now you should know whether it’s 13, 130, 1,300 or 13,000 jobs, you’re one of the best places in the world to be at in Wisconsin because we value manufacturing. That’s why it takes a little longer than a typical job out there or a typical project out there,” he said.

Inside most companies, the typical health and wellness program includes regular blood pressure checks, a list of fresh foods for the office fridge, and some sort of exercise guru who shows up every so often to tell people they should work out more.

McCarty is a professional computer security consultant who noticed that there was a problem with the way the University of Southern California had constructed its web page for online applications.

One of cloud supercomputing company Cycle Computing’s clients, pharmaceutical research firm Schrödinger, recently built a massive supercomputer on Amazon’s cloud. It ran a chemical simulation for three hours and then was gone. Cost of compute resources: $15,000. “It puts access to massive quantities of supercomputing power into the hands of anyone,” says Cycle CEO Jason Stowe. “At this point any small organization can afford to use it, if only for a brief period of time”
In December 1999, President Clinton signed a law that makes it a federal felony to possess “a depiction of animal cruelty” with the intent to distribute across state lines – such as on the Internet. During a floor debate, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Calif.) claimed that “sick criminals are taking advantage of the loopholes in the local law and the lack of federal law on animal cruelty videos.”
For girls in particular, additional STEM-career pitfalls occur in middle school, when according to author and educator Rachel Simmons, girls begin to experience a “psychological glass ceiling” that tells them, “Yes, you be smart–but make sure you don’t make anyone uncomfortable with your intelligence.” Simmons goes on to say:
A targeted individual in San Diego explained to me that her stalkers often coordinate to mock her and make her feel she’s losing her mind. After she went through a difficult breakup, she noticed persecutors posing as couples, kissing and hugging in front of her to torment her. “You know when someone kisses and it’s natural,” she says, speaking on condition of anonymity because she feared for her life. “This wasn’t natural.”

On that Tuesday night in mid-May, Elliott wasn’t the only one out on the roads of suburban Sydney. After he had startled his wife and abruptly left the house, she had contacted a close friend, Andy Chung. A former Anglican minister who has personal experience with major depressive disorder, Chung has known Elliott for two decades. He was the best man at Elliott’s wedding in 2006, and until recently, the two families lived only a short drive apart. Now, it was a half-hour journey each way. Still, Chung headed out to see if, by chance, he could somehow find his distressed friend and offer reassurance. As he drove, he managed to hold a series of brief conversations with Elliott, who would occasionally answer calls before abruptly hanging up. “It was the first time I realized how different he was in his panic state, compared to how he is in his normal, calm state of mind,” recalls Chung. “It was a marked difference.” At home, both wives were watching Elliott’s social media and Google accounts to see if they could glean any details about his location from his Google Maps history. No such luck.
Less than two weeks later, Goldwater announced a surprising shift in direction. “Otto will have their company launch on Tuesday of next week,” he wrote to Hill on May 12. “[…] They are filming some video of self-driving trucks in Nevada tomorrow for the launch on Tuesday (there is someone in the truck [with] a kill switch.) The filming is being done up in Reno.”
The firm’s researchers say they’ve linked those malware samples to a phishing campaign that lures victims with Korean-language emails, indicating South Korean targets. The messages, which spoof a note from South Korea’s National Counter-Terrorism Center—and, according to McAfee, were timed to actual terrorism drills in Pyeongchang—targeted a BCC’d list of more than 300 Olympics-related targets, McAfee says, with only the address “firstname.lastname@example.org” visible in its “to” line. Analyzing the email’s metadata, however, McAfee identified other intended victims, including local tourism organizations in Pyeongchang, ski resorts, transportation, and key departments of the Pyeongchang Olympics effort.
We love the new Galaxy S10 line: I got to test the Galaxy S10 Plus for more than a week and gave the whole line a 9/10, WIRED Recommends award. It’s also my new favorite Android phone. For the first time in a long time, both the software and hardware impressed me. It’s the best Galaxy phone I’ve ever used, and the camera, battery, and gaming performance are everything I’d hoped for in a 2019 device. The new onscreen fingerprint lock works quickly, as does the PowerShare feature that lets you wirelessly charge other devices with your S10. I’m still hoping to spend more dedicated time with the S10E, but I don’t see any red flags.
He said at a minimum of $10 per hour, Seattle has the highest wage rates of any of their sites.
