“It’s clearly worth some debate because there (is) an increasing amount of DNA sequencing being done in the private sector and it would be a shame top have all this kept private.”

Carefully stirring the DNA strands with coffee stirrers, the geneticists in training broke into smiles as they lifted what presenter Toby Horn of the Carnegie Institution admitted looked like snot. As simple as that, participants had their own batch of strawberry DNA to take home with them in a vial of alcohol.
The popularity of the grassroots Hunger Site – which also won the People’s Voice award for activism at the Webby Awards this year – attracted GreaterGood.com, which purchased the site in February. The parent company soon rolled out similar sites with the same model.
Star Trek Online has been a long time in coming. In 2004, Viacom and the now defunct Perpetual Entertainment issued a joint press release introducing the project. Perpetual Entertainment at that time was in beta development for the MMORPG Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising. After several rounds of layoffs, Perpetual stated in 2007 that it was suspending work on Gods & Heroes in order to divert all of it’s resources to Star Trek Online. Then, Perpetual closed it’s doors.
The company started charging access to the site, which morphed into Jessithekid.com. Members can browse photos of a little blonde girl practicing yoga in a white leotard or strutting down a homemade runway in swimsuits. The site also sells videos of a coifed Jessi engaged in childish pursuits such as baking cookies or carving a pumpkin.
I’ve spent quite a few happy evenings discussing the 3DS with friends and family now. Each time I’m surprised that many of them still think it is just a DS with a 3D screen, and are oblivious to the better graphics and other interactions like AR Games.
The Chrome security team has taken on internet-wide security issues before, developing fixes for them in Chrome and then throwing Google’s weight around to motivate everyone to adopt the practice. The strategy has been particularly successful over the past five years in stimulating a movement toward universal adoption of HTTPS web encryption. But critics of the approach fear the drawbacks of Chrome’s power and ubiquity. The same influence that has been used for positive change could be misdirected or abused. And with something as foundational as URLs, critics fear that the Chrome team could land on website identity display tactics that are good for Chrome but don’t actually benefit the rest of the web. Even seemingly minor changes to Chrome’s privacy and security posture can have major impacts on the web community.
The technology giant on Friday secured a permit for autonomous-vehicle testing in California, the clearest sign to date of progress in Apple’s efforts to develop self-driving car technology.
The sunglasses, dubbed Spectacles, will be sold via limited distribution for about $130, said Spiegel, who described the device as a toy.
I don’t run RSS on my site, but there is something very strange for me in the article (“Will RSS Readers Clog the Web?,” April 30, 2004). Usually a website contains much more information (in terms of size) than an XML feed. The only action, which must be taken, is to disable the auto-update option of aggregators by default. No, just kidding. The only action, which must be partially taken, is to keep the meaning of RSS. It must be a quick overview, and should not double what’s on the site.
Believe me, as an RSS user, I update my feeds manually once or twice a day. If you really want to lose your time, check automatically every 30 minutes the big feed list and watch how RSS loses sense. And one more thing – RSS is really genial! It’s the only reasonable usage of mobile phones, and other small connected devices, to surf the Internet.
Enjoy it and don’t be afraid of it. RSS makes the Internet richer – it’s not the Internet killer. Just remember what people thought in the near past about the instant messengers.
“It felt like there was a little kid using my credit card like a candy jar,” he said.
After gathering his evidence, Gochenaur called the Alexandria police and sent them his evidence. Eventually, they informed him that they were passing the case on the state attorney general. Four months later, he can’t believe that Page Creators is still operating.

– Merge Records must’ve been starting Spring cleaning early. Their digital team uncovered VHS tapes of classic Archers of Loaf music videos and recently began digitizing them for distribution. You can check out the video for “Lowest Part is Free” above or view other mid-90s Loaf material on Merge’s YouTube page.
And state election officials have worked for months to improve election infrastructure defenses at both the state and local levels, prioritizing cybersecurity more than in past years. But that step has been hard won, given that researchers have warned about the dangers of insecure voting machines and other infrastructure components for more than a decade. And much of the recent progress—including basic improvements to cybersecurity hygiene on voter databases and election infrastructure networks—is just a first step. Larger projects, like replacing old, insecure voting machines and those that don’t produce a paper backup, or implementing robust audits to confirm electoral results, are still either nascent or nonexistent in most states.
When writer Ethan Gilsdorf was twelve years old, he spent his time at home avoiding the Momster, a fearsome creature that had replaced his mother after her brain aneurysm. His only escape from the hell of his homelife was Dungeons and Dragons.
Apple likely holds copyrights on the machine’s design. And although Briel redesigned the motherboard because some of the original chips are hard to find, he may still need to license the ROM – the set of hard-wired instructions necessary to run original Apple I software.
At the end of 2005, we were supposed to be able to buy next-generation DVDs capable of displaying eye-popping high-definition video on our giant plasma TVs. Except the military/entertainment complex that rules over us all was too busy battling itself over the format.

One problem with many of the current crop of toys, noted D’Hooge, is their tendency to make kids ask “What does it do?” rather than “What can I do with it?” He said that the expectation that every toy will do something, or perform for the child, takes away from any learning experience that might be gained from it.
