Science Museum Declines To Show Climate Change Film 398

sciencehabit writes "A premier science museum in North Carolina has sparked controversy by refusing to show an hour long film about climate change and rising sea levels. The museum may be in a bit of a delicate position. It is part of a state agency, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The state government has been perceived as hostile to action on climate change; last year, the legislature passed a bill forbidding the state coastal commission from defining rates of sea-level rise for regulation before 2016."

I create a different email address for every web site I sign up to, and use different passwords and usernames. I have a Facebook account under my real name, but I post false information, false updates, and false photos by morphing four faces together and photoshopping it into the image. It's very easy to get those four faces at various angles because they are pictures of people in my extended family. My Facebook friends are all random people that accepted me for some reason. I clear my browser and use a different user agent for each of the sites I visit. Any other browsing is done in a private mode in a different browser on a per site basis and I rotate the browser, and this is in a VM that I refresh every day with a backup image. I also force https. I have two different VPN services I use based on the sites I want to visit.

There's no way to trick it into thinking there's a working battery in? Just curious because having a battery in there when you don't need it is a waste, and I wouldn't want it catching fire in my walls or something. This seems like a good idea for old iphones, using them as controllers for other things.

Agreed, I don't see the appeal. With larger screens and now curved as well, it will just be extra bulky in your pocket and wobble on your desk/nightstand. OCD people will have a fit every time they put it down, waiting for it to be still.

"So put it down the other way."

"Yeah but I can't see the screen."

Why Internet Explorer Still Dominates South Korea. 218

New submitter bmurray7 writes "You might think that the country that has the fastest average home internet speeds would be a first adapter of modern browsers. Instead, as the Washington Post reports, a payment processing security standard forces most South Koreans to rely upon Internet Explorer for online shopping. Since the standard uses a unique encryption algorithm, an ActiveX control is required to complete online purchases. As a result, many internet users are in the habit of approving all AtivceX control prompts, potentially exposing them to malware."

Compared to how much you save, the difference between capped and uncapped internet is negligible. Considering we now watch through services like Netflix, YouTube, hulu and others, and we get games through steam and new consoles will have 50GB games, the value proposition is just not there. Even for those who don't use these services, they would be saving at most a few dollars, but charged hefty fees for any overages. This does not reflect the benefit of "paying for what you use.". Powell is either confused or a con artist.
