This kind of auditory recall is what German photographer Kai Schäfer is trying to tap into with his World Records project. But instead of using music, he’s using pictures of music. He’s photographed old records on old turntables and hopes the photos have the same power as the music they show to call up important memories.
At first, what I found on the imposter Vietnam Vets account didn’t make sense. The Facebook page had recycled old news stories about the Department of Veterans Affairs and veterans’ benefits, as well as a post about a “Vietnam Veterans song of the day.” Even though the latter didn’t have any audio attached, it was nonetheless shared by followers hundreds of times each day.
Redandwhite 3/26/2013 20:08: That is interesting. How much is it possible to sell on here if we listed every product far cheaper than everyone else? We have a majority hold over most of the movement of products in western Canada (one of the main drug ports to North America). I have researched your site and the concept seems interesting to me (as long as it is anonymous as everyone makes it out to be). We produce LSD/nBome/Ketamine/MDMA/Meth/GHB and import cocaine and heroin in massive bulk amounts. We have a lot of workers who run their own sub distribution networks for the streets, but if it is lucrative we are always looking to expand.
In my partners eyes all they will see is that because of online dealing we are out 700k so I’m not sure they will go for it.
FriendlyChemist refuses to meet up with us because of what he fears will happen. People are starting to suspect that he will go to the police, which is not a problem because he would never be able to give up anyone of importance since he only has ever had contact with low level people in our group and they always take precautions so that even if someone were to turn informant, they would not be able to get any charges to stick. It’s a shame because he moved a fair amount of product.
If you can get FriendlyChemist to meet up with us, or pay us his debt then I’m sure I would be able to get people in our group to give this online side of the business a try. As it stands right now, there are people looking for him and since he has avoided our group, I’m not sure what will happen since he owes us money and is avoiding us.
I’ve looked around your site, and the prices are absolutely absurd. I’m assuming most people on here selling are 3 or 4 tiers below the actual producers or distributors?
Create a Movie and Create a Story: New easily accessible tools inspire creativity and allow players to create movies and stories and then show them off or share them with friends. Players can show off their Movies with the Create a Movie Tool by embedding them on external sites or with an email link back to their Movie on TheSims3.com.
The book wasn’t exactly a best seller. But Gordhamer struck a nerve when he described how hard it was to focus in our always-on culture. By providing constant access to email, tweets, and Facebook updates, smartphones keep users distracted, exploiting the same psychological vulnerability as slot machines: predictable input and random payouts. They feed a sense that any pull of the lever, or Facebook refresh, could result in an information jackpot.
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff speaks about computer security at the RSA Conference on information security in San Francisco, Tuesday, April 8, 2008.
AP Photo/Paul SakumaSAN FRANCISCO – Gangs of thousands of zombie home computers grinding out spam, committing fraud and overpowering websites are the most vexing net threat today, according to law enforcement and security professionals.
The idea for the group came about after Janicki and some others bought Game Boys to use in a music project, he said.
“For travelers the mobile effect begins with booking, as 43% of people in our study have booked a hotel on mobile,” said Dan Craig, senior director of mobile for Hotels.com.
Hodgman: Having grown up in Brookline, Massachusetts, I then went to Yale University, where I pursued a degree in literature, which is essentially the same degree as the comparative literature major — which is to say very theory-based and very deconstructionist, Derrida and Foucault and A Hundred Years of Solitude over and over again, but with the distinction that in the literature major you only needed to know one foreign language, compared to the comparative literature major in which you needed to know two. And if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that if I have the choice between learning two foreign languages or one foreign language I will learn one foreign language.
That expectation had already been revised downward on Jan. 10, when Yahoo issued a warning. Before that, Yahoo had been expected to bring in revenue in the neighborhood of $325 million.
Separately, lawmakers in Washington said the U.S. House of Representatives could vote as early as Friday on a measure to outlaw most Internet spam. Lawmakers hope to pass a national anti-spam bill before a much tougher California state law goes into effect on January 1.
Sample contents: Each month’s box has a different theme; the one I sampled was “8-Bit – A celebration of retro gaming culture,” featuring 80’s Nintendo and Sega-themed gear. This included a Mario Power-Up energy drink; a tin of Zelda Shield mints that my teen girls fought over; a rather fabulous bendable Mario mustache that inspired a last-minute Halloween costume change for one of my daughters; a tube of blue raspberry-flavored “Nuclear Energy Powder” I haven’t been foolhardy enough to try; some retro gaming buttons; a whimsical Mr. T art piece; a d20 (naturally); a LootCrate sticker; and a pair of 8-bit sunglasses.
“Apple is using the research community as their (quality assurance) department, which makes me not want to report bugs,” he said. “If they aren’t going to run these tools, why should I run them and report them?”
“This artistic project addresses the topic of current media distribution models vs. current culture and technical possibilities,” the coders said.
The pair serve as DJs at art galleries and nightclubs approximately once a month. Dressed as mad scientists in white lab coats to match the iPods, they play an eccentric set. They choose a word -– “sex,” “work” or “world” – and play songs containing the word in the artist’s name, song title or lyrics. It makes for a diverse mix: opera, pop, rockabilly, techno and dozens of other styles.
Overall, I’m pleased that there’s a kids’ show that features Chinese, particularly since they teach about the culture as well as the language. I do worry a little bit about Kai-lan merchandising becoming as ubiquitous as Dora, but there’s probably no way around that. I also wonder how boys will respond to the show: the main character is a girl, but three of the four animal friends are boys. I don’t know if there will eventually be an analog to Diego to draw them in a little more. For now, though, they can choose from Rintoo the tiger, Tolee the Koala, or Hoho the monkey.
KISS frontman Gene Simmons thinks it’s time for celebrities to keep their political opinions to themselves, he told FOX Business on Wednesday.
Recommendation: If your music geek is looking for premium sound and good looks, the rCube is a contender. If you want to throw portability into the mix, then this would be my choice —having the carrying handle and built in Lithium-Ion battery for portable tunes is a huge plus.
Seek promising soft innovations: Investing in a groundbreaking technology might sound like a great idea. But it also can be a fast way to lose a fortune. Amazing inventions too often don’t lead to marketable products, largely because customers are wary of what’s unfamiliar.
I went to the Apple booth and took a full tour of iWeb. I’ll fill you in on all of the details in my full review coming later this week, but one stand-out feature is the Ajax-powered slide show that iWeb pumps out.
In fact, the major conclusion of the book is that there is no ultimate map of cyberspace, the one showing all the destinations and the different ways to get there.
“When people realized that I wasn’t out to take advantage of them but instead wanted celebrate this group of photographers, they wrapped their arms around the project,” Mantoani said.
But unless owners of the systems that are plagued with Code Red II take action, the worm will still continue to scan the Internet until the end of September, when it is set to self-destruct, according to eEye Digital security’s analysis.
