Several of the jurors admitted on the form that they could not put aside feelings of sympathy and indicated they might have a strong bias against the defendant. But when Judge Wu asked them to elaborate, they reversed themselves and said they felt they could be impartial.
Earlier this month, one of PoachIt’s most visible competitors, a similar price-tracking service called Hukkster, suddenly announced that it was shutting down operations. As it turned out, the closure had little to do with the business model, though. Instead, Buzzfeed reports, it came down to strife between Hukkster’s investors Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss and a potential acquirer. It was an unfortunate end for a smart startup, but one that leaves PoachIt in a prime position to…well, poach Hukkster’s 300,000 customers.

The Super Bowl is upon us, and that means it’s time for another team to see if they can beat the New England Patriots. This year, it’s the Los Angeles Rams. If you don’t care about either of those teams, we’ve included two fluffier alternatives. Regardless of which show tickles your fancy, it’s sometimes tough to figure out how to stream it without a cable subscription. We’re here to help, loyal readers. Below is the WIRED guide to streaming all the Bowls.
HP’s net income declined 63%, however, in part due to costs of one-time payments to company retirees. The company’s earnings excluding those items came in higher-than the year-earlier period but slightly below analysts’ average estimates.
Pop Rocks, of course, is the candy that effervesces in your mouth. It looks like a bunch of little pebbles, and is traditionally eaten by the handful. Biting into a Pop Rocks releases a burst of carbon dioxide that has been trapped in the candy at a pressure of 600 psi, according to the Pop Rocks website. You can feel it on your tongue, and even hear it fizzing inside your head. Most kids (and adults) think it’s cool, but there are some who find it disturbing.
Here is more proof, if any was needed, that no matter how long you live you will never see everything, because people will just keep coming up with weirder and weirder ideas.
“I would love to work on a larger scale at some point. I intend to eventually. I would love to have some more resources,” Mitchell says before adding that he’s not clamoring for a mega-franchise just yet. “I want to have a lot of control over what I’m doing. I like writing what I’m doing. My gut tells me I would get clobbered right now if I tried that.”
They’ve got Willie Nelson in their corner, but let’s hope it’s a better partnership than that awful duet he sang with Julio Iglesias. And while this isn’t the first time the Red Headed Stranger has been involved in transporting repurposed plants, it might well be the first time it involves condom size-charts, liquid diets and corporate sponsorships.
There have been other things like that, mostly behind the scenes. Some of them in front of the scenes. A big push to do things a little bit differently with TAM 7, bring in a little bit more Hollywood, move the science in a different direction, talk about the science of TV shows and movies, to make it more popular level stuff. There were some mixed reactions to that but I think it was mostly positive. I want to try more of that. There are more people in Hollywood trying to do better science. And I think this is something I can do every year and have a panel on. … And there are lots of big names doing this in Hollywood. I want to get more scientists to come. Year to year, it’s funny, you invite all these people, and you don’t know who is going to say yes and who is going to say no. I have this irrational fear that we’re going to invite five or six top level scientists and they’ll all say yes. And it’s like, Oh crap, now what am I going to do? But it doesn’t work that way. And then there are some years we invite so many people, and then at the last minute they can’t make it or whatever. It’s really hard. But I’m trying to formalize that process a little bit. So it’s not anything that you’d really see, but stuff that I’m hoping will have major impacts on the JREF in the long run. And like I said, we’re still working this out. Randi and I worked quite a bit on what we want to do next and how we’re going to do it. And the biggest problem is always funding. People think because we have these huge meetings, and Randi and so famous and all this, and we have this million dollar challenge, where we have a million dollars in the bank, if you can prove a claim of the paranormal, we’re going to write you a check for a million bucks. It’s just that simple. That million exists. I get the bank statements every month from Goldman Sachs. It is there. And everyone thinks, But you have a million bucks! I can’t touch it, it’s for somebody else, you know? The interest on it is nice, but when you think about it, even if it’s 4% interest, that’s not even somebody’s salary. 10% interest, then it’s someone’s salary, when you have taxes and deductibles and all that kind of stuff. So it’s not even coming close to paying our operating costs. It’s a fraction of our operating costs. We exist on donations. So we have enough money to pay our salaries and to do some stuff every year, but if there is a millionaire out there and listening and says, Here is a check for $100K, yeah, call me! Talk to me! Email me! I’ll be happy to talk to you about this.
“So often, when there is a new type of financial service or a new player in the financial industry, the first reaction by those of us who are concerned about money laundering or terrorist finance is to think about the gaps and the vulnerabilities that it creates in the financial system,” she said. “But it’s also important that we step back and recognize that innovation is a very important part of our economy.”

Brenda applauds games that incorporate sex into the full experience of game play, citing God of War as an example. God of War includes an interactive sex game as part of the story arc. “It doesn’t get tons of play, and it’s not the central point,” she says. “But it really adds to a great game.”
