The mark "CANDY" was published as application for registration serial number 85/842,584 on January 15, 2014. Interested parties have until February 15, 2014 to file a Notice of Opposition to registration of the mark. king.com's pushing its weight around regarding this mark during the opposition period, when they are particularly vulnerable, is just stupid, IMHO. Any party receiving a "cease and desist" from king.com can file institute an opposition proceeding before the U.S. Trademark Office during this time and get the trademark examiners to consider all the many arguments as to why king.com should not obtain registration for this mark for these goods and services.

Submission + - Ternary part of Goldbach's conjecture proof->

Unixnoteunuchs writes: Goldbach's famous conjecture, that every even number greater than 2 can be represented as the sum of two primes, is one of mathematics' most famous unproven challenges. However, another part of Goldbach's conjecture, that every odd number greater than 5 can be represented as the sum of three prime numbers, the "ternary part", is now claimed to have been proven by mathematician Harald Helfgott at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. Has another lofty peak in mathematics been conquered?

Submission + - Star Wars Episode 4 to be dubbed in Navajo->

Unixnoteunuchs writes: Coming to a theater in Window Rock in the Navajo Nation on July 4, 2013, Star Wars Episode 4 dubbed in the Navajo language. This is the first time a major motion picture has ever been dubbed in a native American language. This effort will help the Navajo nation preserve its cultural heritage in its language, a complex and beautiful Athabaskan tongue heavily reliant on adjectives and compound words. Listen to this article and how "computer" and "droid" would translate.
