In “Procurement Fraud Indicators,” you’ve got to determine what’s wrong with a lieutenant colonel limiting a solicitation for a contract to fix an Army base so his son-in-law could win. (If you said “Excluding Qualified Bidders,” you’re correct!)

When the Emanuel campaign released its campaign finance records in January, it turned out they’d spent almost $15,000 on Eli’s Cheesecake.

An earlier iteration of the eDonkey network relied on Napster-style central indexes that are the subject of the MPAA’s new legal efforts. But on the more recent editions of the service, matchmaking happens on individual users’ computers – with no one server in charge of managing traffic.
One player is the Overseer, who sets up the rooms and controls all the monsters. The rules give a basic setup with the order of Level 0, Level 1, and Level 2 rooms, plus a merchant and a healer, and then ending with the Catacombs Lord. The player can decide which boss they want to face this game, which also determines the “wandering monsters” for the other rooms.
Such is the case with BitTorrent. It has remained a technology in search of a business for a dozen years. Then last year, Delamar and Johnson arrived with plans to save it once and for all. Instead, they squandered millions on failed schemes, putting the company on course for collapse.
Google recently launched a similar service to collect headlines from multiple sources. Google’s News Search (beta) service uses a unique grouping technology that automatically puts related stories together in the same search result.
Kornacki, a scientist, founded his Chicago-based startup, Üllo, because both he and his aunt suffered from sulfite allergies. He hopes his new wine-purifying device will be the solution for wine lovers who have similar issues.
“We’ve got five (stories), and two of them are about Romania,” Wales said of the site on Monday. “Presumably that’s not the norm. It still is following the interests of the participants pretty strongly.”
Frozen Planet also serves as a wake-up call about climate change, but not in a preachy or political way. The makers simply show you the facts of what has been happening to the arctic and antarctic, and explains what the future consequences of this change could be for the creatures of those areas – and the creatures of populated areas, too. The final episode of the series, titled “On Thin Ice” (which was not available for review) is hosted on-camera by naturalist David Attenborough, addresses the issue of global warming head-on, and early reports that the episode would not be shown in its entirety in the U.S. were incorrect.
PayPal processed 1.5 billion transactions in the latest quarter, slightly lower than the average estimate of 1.52 billion.
But it also speaks to a key facets of boutique Blu-ray culture: The sense that these films—no matter small or forgotten—are worth keeping alive, and within the conversation, at a time when streaming services are pushing a smaller, far more mainstream movie canon. Diabolik’s Nelson, a cult-film connoisseur, notes that the recent Blu-ray of Maniac, released by Blue Underground, has been a favorite among customers–including himself. “It’s a notorious movie,” he says of the famously gnarly 1980 flick, “but for some reason, I’d never watched it. I needed to have that in my collection.” It’s a sentiment to which countless movie maniacs could no doubt relate.
GeekMom: What kinds of college programs/majors are best for people interested in working in video-game development?
The e-book was offered in five serialized installments, May 9 through July 8, with the final installment coinciding with the third week of the actual book being on sale.
The biggest draw in beefing up the analytics product, however, most likely has to do with courting major content creators that go far beyond the everyman. Last month, Google inked a content deal with Disney to bring original content to its YouTube channel. It’s good for Disney, in that it could draw more of the growing YouTube crowd to the network’s other outlets. Granular data over audience viewing habits on YouTube is indispensable for any major content company.
“Why the hell did they put a back button into the browser toolbar if they didn’t want me to use it?” Martin Montez, a stockbroker, wondered. “I’m one of the few people in the world who actually reads the manuals and there’s no warning anywhere that using the back button could compromise your system.”
However, older listeners are apparently more likely to tune in using an AM or FM radio, which lacks on-demand playback and the ability to listen to NPR stations anywhere in the country, which is why the organization has partnered with internet radio manufacturer Livio to create a special version of its WiFi-connected radio that’s pre-programmed to play back all local NPR stations and lets listeners search for a specific program, station, segment, or even guest by keying in search terms with the device’s control dial.
“Mike immediately shut down the motor on the first advisory call over the radio,” Rutan wrote. “Mike himself was monitoring the apogee predictor during the initial rolls and was in the process of going for the thrust termination switch as he heard the advisory call.”
Also on Friday night, I began the process of restoring my Google account. Because I couldn’t send a backup to my now non-functioning phone, I had to fill out some forms online that asked me questions about my account usage that, presumably, only I would know. For example, I was asked to name the five people I e-mailed the most.
