If you’re on Mars, or at least work by a Mars clock, you have to figure out how to put up with the exhausting challenge of those extra 40 minutes. To be exact, the Martian day is 24 hours, 39 minutes, and 35 seconds long, a length of day that doesn’t coincide with the human body’s natural rhythms. Scientists, Mars rover drivers, and everyone else in the space community call the Martian day a “sol” to differentiate it from an Earth day. While it doesn’t seem like a big difference, that extra time adds up pretty quickly. It’s like heading west by two time zones every three days. Call it “rocket lag.”

Instead of using a multi million dollar Predator drone to scan the border, perhaps they should be using something smaller and cheaper like an office drone
I hear that office drones basically do anything for money as long as they can play candy crush or angry birds
How do you self-mummified???
It starts by reading the TFA.
After which you'll wish that you didn't read the TFA.
Certainly not something for those who are even the slightest bit claustrophobic to attempt.
It is called Russian Roulette . ( i.e. exploding kitten brains ) It was a favourite pastime in USSR and had to be kick - started in a bar.
But it kinda lost its appeal when people moved from using revolvers to playing it with a semi-automatic pistol with a single bullet in the magazine.
Why didn't they land a bit closer? Seems Americans' awesome knowledge of geography isn't a new phenomenon.
Because if you read First Barbary War you learn that the expeditionary force consisted of 8 Marines and 500 local mercenaries. Given that the US navy was only about 7 years old at the time, I doubt that they had the ships available to transport all those people.
Islamic history that they don't teach at Harvard:
When American colonists rebelled against British rule in 1776, American merchant ships lost British Royal Navy protection. With no American Navy for protection, American ships were attacked and their Christian crews enslaved by Muslim pirates operating under the control of the "Dey of Algiers"--an Islamist warlord ruling Algeria. . . . In 1805, American Marines marched across the desert from Egypt into Tripolitania, forcing the surrender of Tripoli and the freeing of all American slaves
I know I'll probably be moderated into the dark depths for being a troll, but there is a certain irony in this history.
I wonder if a similar thing could be made with a Koran-burning machine. The machine is configured so that every time the internet has a new message from Islamicists, the machine automatically dips a Koran in pig blood, burns it, posts the video on YouTube, and sends a Tweet giving credit to the Islamicists who triggered that action.
So your solution to extremists boasting about what they dream they could do, is to do something tangible that will piss off said extremists and give them grounds to point the finger at the west and say "See, they are a bunch of infidels that deserve what they get!". Which will do no less more than to push more people into extremism.
Have you ever heard of a positive feedback loop? Because that is what you are suggesting for "solving" the problem of terrorists.
Its been proven time and time again that red light cameras do more harm than good. how can anyone still support such bad use of tech???
So what is your alternate solution?
that nasty pieve of Chinese spyware a/k/a Superfish.
If anything, the technology behind Superfish is Israeli
For software, generally speaking the copy is exactly the same as the original. No one collects software (only their medium), and its unlimited.
I have known people in the warez scene who would beg to differ with you. They seemed to have pride in how many cracked software titles they had, regardless of whether or not they actually had any use for them.
we will provide a tool that removes all traces of the app from people’s laptops;
So how I do trust that:
1. This tool will do as it says
2. You won't repeat the process in the future?
The trust with Lenovo has been broken and I can't see what they can ever do in order to restore it.
Roll up, roll up,
See the former champion fight the young contender!
Who will consume who?
Will Microsoft wipe out SystemD?
Or will "the Borg" finally meet its match?

The issue has remained latent since Mark Hopkins, a Lenovo social media program manager, confirmed in January that the company was installing the Superfish Visual Discovery software on some of its products in order to serve ads.
It could have been the Asterix malware. That shit doesn't just spy on you, it beats the crap out of of you - and then has a nice feast to celebrate!

Not all of those plugins are available for all browsers. And any recommended plugin really needs to identify the ecosystem that it works in.
