After that, I just needed to look at them some more, rub them between my fingers, and try to figure out how they were constructed. Bressner explained that as the new owner of a laser cutter, she will be launching a textile business that encourages do-it-yourself craftiness, and that the beautiful garlands were an example of the projects she’d like to encourage others to do. She was somewhat enigmatic with regard to details of this venture, so I will have to update y’all as I find out more. In the interim, enjoy Bressner’s video on how to save time when making pom-poms (which you can turn into earrings, flower garlands, whatever you’d like…).

Opponents say the bill will change the way outside content is moderated on the internet, but they don’t agree on how. Some say the “knowingly” standard will push tech companies to stop all moderation efforts for fear of finding something and being held liable. Other say the bill will result in extreme censorship as companies scour their platforms for any content related to sex trafficking, harming sex workers in the process.

Using a VPN ensures the data people are sending and receiving is encrypted and safe from prying eyes – such as eavesdropping hackers at Wi-Fi cafes, enterprising ISPs performing deep packet inspection for marketing purposes, or even governments looking to surveil traffic.

In what would be the largest project of its kind, the Missouri Department of Transportation is finalizing a contract to monitor thousands of cell phones, using their movements to map real-time traffic conditions statewide on all 5,500 miles of major roads.

At OEP, Turoff worked with Dalkey’s Project Delphi team to speed up the expert analysis and harness the knowledge of hundreds of informal and formal presidential advisers on emergency situations. His first crisis wasn’t nuclear; it was Nixon’s August 1971 wage-price freeze, which attempted to pull the nation’s economy out of an inflationary spiral. Under orders to deliver a monitoring network in just a week, Turoff developed a system in just four days that came to be known as the Emergency Management Information System and Reference Index—with the inevitable acronym EMISARI, which allowed 10 regional offices to link together in a real-time online chat, known as the “Party Line.”

The success of memes like the alt-right’s Pepe the Frog and ISIS’s one-finger salute points to political memes’ probable future function: spreading propaganda. They’re visual, and pictures often skip right over reason and punch your brain right in the truth center. Images and videos will only become easier to manipulate as AI gets smarter.
