It’s hardly the only piece of Saddamorabilia that’s hit the marketplace in the nine years since the U.S. began occupying Iraq. But caveat lector: This stuff is easily faked. Which makes it perfect fodder for Tinfoil Tuesday, our recurring feature about the planet’s loonier conspiracy theories.
Bullwinkle and Piggy, September 19, 2011 on Wolfsville Road in Smithsburg, MD. Theron Humphrey: “Bullwinkle and Piggy reinvigorated my passion for traveling and meeting folks. It was nice hiking a few miles of the Appalachian Trail with them. Getting a taste of their life for the next few months as they head south. I’m not sure if they are typical AT hikers, if there is a typical hiker, but when I left them after a long night of rain I had nothing but respect for them. Sometimes you just gotta grab a backpack and figure it out along the way.” Photo: Theron Humphrey
Former Vivendi general mobile manager and founder of the Microsoft-purchased MusiWave Albin Serviant took over as CEO of MXP4 in January to solve the company’s main problem: getting artists and labels to actually use this new format.

Even if every species can’t yet be identified with software, birders can still take pleasure from connecting with an avian world otherwise hidden to their eyes and ears.
But many longtime netheads, like San Francisco software engineer Nick Thompson, view pop-ups as just the latest growing pain for the Web. “The people at the other end think those things work because everyone clicks on them,” he said. “Wait’ll they figure out how to tell the difference between a happy click and an angry click.”

Altamirano said that the site is getting 450,000 hits a day since the quake, up from 90,000 hits on a normal basis. About 1,000 people still are missing in the Central American country, and the paper has been inundated with classified ads requests from faraway relatives hoping to locate their loved ones.
The presence of the Tech Surgers has actually stopped potential IT train wrecks before they happen. Take the example of a congressional mandate for HHS to drastically change the way it paid doctors for Medicare. This would affect about 600,000 clinicians treating 55 million people. It was a project parceled out to multiple contractors, and if a four-person USDS team hadn’t intervened it would have been as bad as the original HealthCare.gov disaster. “We looked at what they were doing and said, ‘This is unlikely to produce the thing you are hoping to produce,’” says Mina Hsiang, head of the USDS’s Digital Service at HHS. “Nobody ever looked at the demos of the products they were hiring people to build, so we showed them, and they said, ‘That’s awful!’”

Is this sounding familiar yet?

Zeng Shao Min and Chen Lan Fang both work in oil painting production lines in Xiamen, China. “Usually when we do practices, we would also draw the same thing again and again and look for something more interesting out of that,” Zeng Shoa Min told me.
The last thing to remember when your drone is in the air is to relax. Small corrections, slow movements, and a cool head go a long way to making your drone a lot more fun.
Just as with anything else, the best way to get acquainted is to jump in. Visit the virtual worlds that your child enjoys visiting, and meet the characters they enjoy spending time with. This can be a great way to not only learn more about the games he or she likes, but also become familiar with the content. And, most importantly, have fun!
This isn’t Beartooth’s first off-grid communications product. You may remember the smartphone case with a protruding antenna Beartooth debuted at Disrupt SF in September 2014.
