I don’t know who is more stupid – the people who believe Obama really wants to move Christmas, or the people who need to point out that it’s not true.
Police records indicate Rivera walked into the Aria Health Frankford Hospital emergency room at about 10:45 p.m. Saturday complaining of pain in his left arm and torso. As his wait to be treated moved into its second hour, Rivera lost consciousness.
“I knew the guy was dead, I could tell. I’m not a doctor, but I knew immediately that the guy was dead,” eyewitness Luis Carrasquillo said.
Police say during this time, suspect Richard Atlen and two others removed Rivera’s watch, passed it around and left the hospital with it.
I guess compassion for your fellow citizens is required to get good health care system in a country, but this is absurd…
NASA’s robotic rover Spirit is bogged down on the Red Planet in a place the rover team named after the ancient city.
So why aren’t scientists lamenting?
“The rover’s spinning wheels have broken through a crust, and we’ve found something supremely interesting in the disturbed soil,” says Ray Arvidson of the Washington University in St. Louis.
As the rover tried to break free, its wheels began to churn up the soil, uncovering sulfates underneath.
“Sulfates are minerals just beneath the surface that shout to us that they were formed in steam vents, since steam has sulfur in it. Steam is associated with hydrothermal activity – evidence of water-charged explosive volcanism. Such areas could have once supported life.”
It isn’t easy to be a humanist in Nigeria these days. In July, when Leo Igwe, Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Humanist Movement, held a symposium on witchcraft and children’s rights, not only was it disrupted by 150 followers of Helen Ukpabio’s Liberty Gospel Church, but he was attacked, had his glasses destroyed and his bag, camera and mobile phone taken from him.
And now Helen Ukpabio is suing him. For religious discrimination.
The religious belief Igwe is accused of discriminating against is her church’s assertion that many of Nigeria’s children are witches.
In order to force a change in the law, last month a man reported himself for breaching copyright more than a hundred times, hoping an anti-piracy group would take him to court. The group’s lawyer said they would respond by today – they haven’t – so the Danish copyfighter is now reporting himself to the police.
Henrik told us that even though he has broken the law, Antipiratgruppen doesn’t seem interested in responding. “They are obviously aware that there will be an outrage if they reported me to the police,” he points out.
The other possibility, he says, is that Antipiratgruppen themselves don’t see his actions as illegal – but this creates another problem. The Ministry of Culture have already written to Henrik informing him that breaking DRM in this way is against the law.
Clearly frustrated, Henrik told us: “But who should I follow? Those that determine the laws in this country? Or those who are lawyers for the companies that i’m committing a crime against?”
But Henrik has a solution to their inaction.
“I decided to try to see if I can report myself directly to the police, for the case must be resolved,” he told us.
Intel unveiled a completely new processor design today the company is dubbing the “Single-chip Cloud Computer” (but was previously codenamed Bangalore). Justin Rattner, the company’s CTO, discussed the new product at a press event in Santa Clara and revealed some interesting information about the goals and design of the new CPU.
The 48 cores are arranged in 24 “titles” – what you can think of as 24 separate dual-core processors. These tiles are then connected via a 2D mesh network that can support up to 256 GB/s of bandwidth! There are four integrated DDR3 memory controllers (though no mention of how many channels each controller is) that can house as much as 64GB of total memory.
This will enable system administrators to say “Fuck it, we’ll go to one blade!”
There’s a dutch proverb, saying “Achteraf kijk je een koe in de kont” which roughly translates as “looking back you always look up a cows ass” and means that looking back it’s always easy to see a mistake you made.
But it demonstrates how he thinks: zero style, zero image, zero emotion. Everything is about money (“500 dollar!?”), business, and checklist copy-cat innovations.
