Not only is the economy crashing, but so is part of the House of Representative’s website.
Goldman Sachs’ notorious hedge against the coming mortgage collapse, aka the big short, was discovered as federal regulators sifted through millions of pages of emails, most notably from CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who wrote, “Of course we didn’t dodge the mortgage mess. We lost money, then made more than we lost because of shorts.”
A solution arrived late last year with Redthread, the startup Litchfield created to make bespoke clothing for anyone with a smartphone. Customers choose an item from Redthread’s website, fill out a “fit quiz,” and capture a series of full-body photos with their phone. Redthread pulls 3D measurement data from those photos and, combined with a customer’s fit preferences, creates a made-to-order item.
“We’re concerned with the health and well-being of children,” said Brynda Pappas, a spokesperson for the AOTA. “Since over a fourth of our members work in schools with children, we see that these ergonomic problems have the potential to negatively affect their development.”
Einstein Archives Online was developed in collaboration with the information technology and photo-reprography departments of Hebrew University’s Jewish National and University Library, the library’s David and Fela Shapell Digitization Project and the Princeton University Press.
“The key is to be upfront and disclose that information and then there is no misrepresentation at all,” said Schultz. “Apple has no copyright claim over an iPod once they sell it to you.”
Other attacks were less focused. Max was still plugged into the white hat scene, and he was on the private mailing lists where security holes often appeared for the first time. He had machines scanning the internet day and night for servers running vulnerable software, just to see what he’d turn up. He was scanning for a Windows server-side buffer overflow when he made the discovery that would lead to his public entry into the carding scene.
As his career moved on, Kilcullen became increasingly focused on numbers. In a traditional battle, it’s easy to measure territory gained on enemies killed. But how do you gauge something as squishy as a town’s loyalty? How do you tell if those allegiances are getting stronger or weaker over time?
Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) shares plunged on Thursday, a day after technology website Recode reported that Alphabet’s Google and Disney would not bid for the social network and Apple was unlikely to be a suitor.
But in the early evening of Monday, June 6, 2011, she was walking to meet a friend in downtown Damascus when three young men wrestled her into a red minivan, which screeched off into the dusk. Arraf’s cousin posted details to Amina’s blog. The outcry was immediate. The Guardian reported the kidnapping, and so did the New York Times, Fox News, Gawker, CNN, and several other news organizations. The International Business Times asked how the United States should respond to the abduction, and “Free Amina” websites and posters began to spring up.

The nice part is it leaves all of your previous data, cache and history untouched, so you can still run searches against visited pages.
According to Robert Danbeck, associate director for OPM’s human resources products and services division, there is talk about using social networks to let people know about other government jobs. However, most of the focus remains on the one-stop government job site USAJOBS.gov, which currently has around 220,000 job vacancies.
Those awards are already part of the more than $187 million she stands to make from stock options, restricted-stock units, and other equity-based awards if she leaves after Yahoo’s core business is sold to Verizon for $4.5 billion. The value of her payout has increased as Yahoo shares have tripled since her arrival in 2012.
Boger’s daughter, Rachel Begley, who was 13 at the time, says she learned of her father’s death from a television news bulletin. Her parents were divorced, and though she spent occasional days with her dad, riding in his motorcycle’s sidecar, she didn’t know enough about his life to make sense of what had happened. The police would eventually conclude that Boger and Alvarez were killed in connection with shady doings at the nearby Cabazon Indian reservation. But Begley’s mother shielded her from all the murky details of the investigation.
Twitter launched a full redesign to its website Tuesday, showing off changes that lead Twitter.com away from its humble stream-of-updates past and toward a more interactive, app-like future. The new Twitter went live to a select few users Tuesday afternoon and began rolling out to everyone else Wednesday. If you don’t see it yet, you will soon. The website now has a new two-panel view. Your familiar stream of tweets runs down the left side. On the right side is a dashboard of sorts, where you can see recent activity from your followers and the people you follow, trending topics, and the list of people you might want to follow.
To cover the whole Earth with imaging satellites, Skybox needs to break free from the design patterns that have defined commercial satellite construction to date. This chart shows the relative scale of SkySat-1, set against its high-end (and low-end) alternatives. —Sara Breselor

LaLa hopes so. On Tuesday, the company launched a new pricing plan that lets music fans buy songs from all four major labels plus 170,000 indie labels for a mere 10 cents a song, delivering on their promise to do just that. The catch? For that 10-cent investment, you only get to stream songs from the LaLa website, or through their online player with an iTunes-like interface and fast response time over a broadband connection.
In April, Bitfloor, the world’s fourth-largest Bitcoin exchange, shut its doors after its bank refused to do business with it. The feds want banks to do business with companies that can identify their customers in the event of a criminal investigation, and many banks don’t seem to have the time or the inclination to figure out who is doing a good job of this and who is not. That lack of banking certainty can make things tough for a startup business like BitBox – which only accepts U.S. customers.
TB: We’re going to Europe in February, and I would imagine Asia, andI’m sure we will come out at some point. It’s a wonderful place tocome visit. But I live in LA anyway… It’s all good, but it’s goingto be interesting. I noticed in your magazine today, there was anarticle about Doug Morris giving away music for free… There’s fourpages, I’ve not finished it yet, but it just goes to show, really, thata big change has got to come.
What Happened: Satirical website ClickHole was a little too convincing with its satire of the way the Internet treats celebrities.
Where It Blew Up: Twitter, blogs
What Really Happened: A regular feature of ClickHole is a roundup of what celebrities are saying, even though none of the quotes are real (or, to extend the joke, even that interesting). To wit:
To make this fresh effort anything more than political posturing, Cuomo must stick with the process and continually pressure MTA leadership to make all necessary changes. “Ideas put forward need to be implemented, and you need the structure to do so. You need leadership and vision, you need a framework,” says Vanterpool. “That’s what we’ve seen fall short.”
