The design of the JBTDS is a lightweight (one-man portable, not exceeding 37 pounds; no more than one cubic foot in size), battery operable (utilizing military standard batteries or available future power supply systems) biological agent detector system that will detect, warn and then provide samples for internal and follow-on confirmatory analysis, at multiple echelons on the battlefield as far forward as the battalion equivalent level. The
JBTDS components are envisioned to be comprised of:
“It does everything on earth better, and is far better for our Earth,” said Toyota president Fujio Cho.
“I’m hopeful we can negotiate that kind of agreement between [the] U.S. and big tech companies. We just saw a few days ago Twitter step back from helping the U.S. government in a surveillance means. This is a delicate conversation between privacy and security,” he said.

The Greek situation exemplifies what proponents of the digital currency have been saying all along — that there needs to be an alternative to government-backed money in times of crisis.
Those of you who’ve been to an IKEA have probably noticed that the children’s section has a lot of toys that, at least in the U.S., you just can’t find anywhere else. My wife and I have found quite a few interesting items there for our kids—I think my favorite was my son’s monster umbrella, which had pointy ears that sprung up when you opened it. Still, there are so many IKEA stores in the U.S. now that it’s arguable that much of their merchandise, toys included, is becoming ubiquitous.

Not to mention, the Festival has added a brand new category just for Graphic Novels.
Asked his thoughts about the impact of Section 230, Wyden says mostly what you would expect: He truly believes, as does Cox, that the internet would look very different without it. But one thing about his answer surprised me. The reason Section 230 came to be in the first place was not just so that websites could leave objectionable material up. It was so they could take it down. The Prodigy court ruling that sparked Cox’s light bulb all those years ago hinged on Prodigy’s decision to moderate its message boards. Put another way, Prodigy enforced content guidelines and removed posts that violated them, which is pretty much what all websites do nowadays. But because Prodigy exercised some degree of editorial control over its content, the court saw it as a publisher — legally liable for whatever appeared on its site.

Howard: Hmmm… honestly I spend most of my free time working on music related activities. I also have a job as a computer programmer, so I am a busy guy. That said, I enjoy reading comics (Jason Lutes and Chris Ware are personal favorites), listening to podcasts (Radio Lab, This American Life, and Planet Money are personal favorites), reading books (Oliver Sacks’ Musicology is currently on the nightstand), and watching movies (too many to name).
