Clearing the worm from systems can be time-consuming. Last week, the Pentagon temporarily shut down public access to all of its websites to purge and patch its networks, an action that some security experts felt was a bit of overkill.
First is the Chameleon Soft-Shell Jacket. It’s the perfect middle-weight jacket, good for chilly days down to freezing, but okay for when the sun comes out. It also has pockets and secret compartments where cell phones, wallets, earphones, mifi cards and so on can all be stashed and carried easily. Second, my Shear sunglasses. They’re not terribly geeky, but they are the best pair of shades I’ve ever owned. That’s not necessarily because they’ve got some magic super-glass, or a designer name on them, but because they’re the right balance of lightweight and sturdy construction. I’ve had too many expensive pairs of sunglasses fall apart on me over the years, and too many cheap pairs just feel cheap. These achieve a middle ground that feels just right.
Uttamchandani, himself a frequent user of Instagram, had shopped a similar idea around to various outlets but with no luck. As luck would have it, an editor of Bombay-based Scroll.in contacted Ritesh to find a novel way of building up the website’s photo feed with images from the election. Together with photographers Prashanth Vishwanathan and Harsha Vadlamani, Uttamchandani began working on the existing feed, where all manner of photos had been tossed in by various shooters without any apparent coordination. “There was no continuity, it was more of a dump yard,” he says.

The Chang’e 5 mission involves putting a large lander on the moon’s surface and scooping up samples. Once collected, the lunar material would be launched off the surface in an ascent vehicle that would dock with an orbiting spacecraft. The samples would then be transferred to a reentry vehicle that would bring them to Earth. The scenario sounds quite similar to the U.S. Apollo missions.
Live-streaming has been one of Twitter’s biggest pushes since last year as it seeks to attract new users, as sports fans increasingly rely on the Internet to watch video.

For the last several years, though, Pound has forgone the formal trappings of comic strips and focused on single panel compositions instead. His recent output has taken the form of “sketchbooks.” For these, Pound will set his program on a certain path, have it generate one or two hundred works, and send the resulting PDF to an on-demand printing service to create a physical document of the work. He makes one copy of each, for himself. He’s currently working on sketchbook number thirty.
Stoll: People found my blog and have left comments saying it’s useful. The only thing is, we can’t be sure that the information people put in is right. We’ve already removed some things that are clearly just people messing with us or just playing around.
“We are troubled by the secretive nature of the Gülen movement, all the smoke and mirrors,” an anonymous U.S. official told the New York Times last year. “It is clear they want influence and power.

“Unica is like an urbanite who has had to move in with his villager in-laws, but has decided to make the best of it,” he continued. I tried to get in touch with Papazian in hopes that he would elaborate, but I suspect type designers will know exactly what he means.

Now, let me be clear: the city, like many other local governments, is absolutely facing shortfalls, partly from the economic crisis, mostly from long-term problems in the city’s budget. They’re charging businesses for trash collection, which always fell under property tax before. The water department is charging property owners with a special fee for water collected in the city’s storm drains. The revenue department has been nothing if not innovative.
“The political impartiality of the Investigative Committee should be seriously questioned after the Navalny’s charging,” muckraking, Moscow-based online journalist Andrei Soldatov tells Danger Room. “Navalny seems to be another one in the long line of protesters prosecuted by the Investigative Committee this summer with the clear aim to suppress the political activism by the autumn when the new wave of protests is anticipated.”
