The dust hadn’t even settled on Facebook’s announcement about its new cryptocurrency, named Libra, before lawmakers around the world made it clear that they were skeptical. I was just innocently browsing Google search trends when I saw folks getting excited about signs of extraterrestrial life on Mars as spotted by NASA's Curiosity rover. The frenzy seems to trace to a raw image snapped by the rover's mast camera in early August.
Yes, you do need a subscription to access our work, but in return we get to keep coming up with fantastic recipes for you to cook. Not only that, but with a subscription you’ll be able to save and organize the recipes you like, leave ratings and notes on them, and share them with family and friends. And did you know you can save recipes from sites that aren’t NYT Cooking in your recipe box? Here’s how! Note that Works with Nest offered developers an open API to control Nest smart home gadgets. Works with Assistant is different in this regard, as it allows devices to work through Google Assistant, but not as the controller. Developers can check out Actions on Google Smart Home to integrate their device and create new commands.
Schedule a TripOther Republicans saw a bigger story in the leading Democrat who was a less prominent presence on Tuesday: Mr. Biden, who seemed to veer from indignant at times to detached at others. They said his uneven performance was a sign that other candidates who displayed more gusto — like Ms. Warren, Mr. Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — were gaining prominence at his expense.

“The New Gospel” is an original work for Matera 2019, part of a series of events for this city’s turn as European capital of culture, an initiative in which cities host programs highlighting European cultural diversity. "Samsung is at the forefront of innovations that's making this possible," DJ Koh, Samsung's co-CEO overseeing mobile, said Wednesday during the company's Unpacked event.
Schedule a TripLong Island | 5 bedrooms, 3½ baths Although photoplethysmography is a tried-and-true practice, not all heart rate tracking apps are created equal. When researchers compared four of them to clinical gold standard measurements (ECG and fingertip pulse oximetry), they found that the heart rate readings generated by apps were off by more than 20 beats per minute in over 20% of measurements.
Thursday’s new suspensions raised the risk that Russia could have its longstanding suspension from World Athletics extended, or increased to a full expulsion from global track and field. In a statement, the Athletics Integrity Unit said the Russian federation had until Dec. 12 to offer a response. Any penalty will be decided by the governing council of World Athletics. If you live in Anchorage and want to pay a ticket off with writing implements, you can go to the EasyPark office at 440 B St. between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays from Friday through Aug. 9.

These are the bargains you should watch for in the near future beyond just Amazon and Google devices (though those are here, too). The change makes sense, especially if the chime is quieter. The idea is that if you give a voice command to turn off the lights as you're about to go to sleep, a loud vocal response could be overbearing. This update is rolling out to Google's smart displays -- including the upcoming Google Nest Hub Max -- and smart speakers like the Google Home Mini. It will only trigger if you're talking about lights in the same room as the device, so both your Nest Hub and your smart bulbs need to be labeled "bedroom."
Schedule a TripTallon was the general manager of the Blackhawks from 2005 to 2009, helping to assemble the team that Quenneville took to the three Cups. He said hiring Quenneville was a message to fans that the franchise was committed to winning. Common Networks says it can do it cheaper.
An impressive contribution to this anxious re-examination of political assumptions and practices is Astra Taylor’s “Democracy May Not Exist, but We’ll Miss It When It’s Gone,” an idiosyncratic rumination on problems associated with popular self-government. “For most of my life,” she writes, “the word democracy didn’t hold much appeal. … Words such as justice, equality, freedom, solidarity, socialism and revolution resonated more deeply.” A big part of the problem is a definitional vacuum that leaves “democracy” vulnerable to the sloganeering of just about anyone. After all, notes Taylor, a Canadian documentary filmmaker and author, the horrendously dictatorial regime of North Korea calls itself a “Democratic People’s Republic.” She sets out to impart some coherence and substance to the term in order to rescue it from ignorance and obfuscation. Her book, she declares, “is an invitation to think about the word democracy from various angles, looking back through history and reflecting on the philosophy and practice of self-rule in hopes that a more contemplative view will shed useful light on our present predicament.” The Canterbury Museum in Christchurch, New Zealand, blew all our visions of adorable little penguins out of the Arctic water on Wednesday by sharing a super creepy image of a new species of giant penguin that stood about 5 feet, 2 inches (1.6 meters tall) The museum dubbed it a "monster penguin" (properly IMO) and said it has been identified from fossils found in Waipara, North Canterbury.
Schedule a TripIn the end, the Baptists ousted the journalist, Michael W. Leathers, while the pastor who had committed the crimes, Leslie Mason, received a seven-year prison sentence and then, as a registered sex offender, returned to the pulpit at a series of Baptist churches nearby. So Leathers is no longer a journalist, and Mason remained a pastor. Over the past dozen years, scientists have been finding enigmatic, fleeting signals called fast radio bursts, or FRBs, by poring over previous observations for the bright blips that come from the other side of the cosmos. Now, for the first time, the powerful flashes of radio waves have been picked up the moment they arrive at Earth.
Lands that are formally recognized as “collective lands” are owned by the government but guaranteed under the Constitution for the exclusive use of indigenous groups. Mr. Bolsonaro says he wants those lands made “more productive.” To measure VO2 max, you wear a mask and heart rate monitor hooked up to a treadmill or stationary bike. The mask is connected to a machine that collects and measures the volume of oxygen you inhale, and the amount of air you exhale. You'll slowly increase exercise intensity on the treadmill or bike — getting faster and/or adding more resistance — until your oxygen consumption remains steady despite an increase in intensity.
Schedule a TripMAD, an influential Danish nonprofit group dedicated to global change in the restaurant industry, on Tuesday announced its most ambitious project to date: building a permanent educational center in Copenhagen. Contracting in the tech industry has reached a flashpoint, escalating tensions in Silicon Valley's world of haves and have-nots. Contractors and temps don't get the health care or retirement benefits that full-time employees do, a difference that hasn't gone unnoticed. Last year, contract workers at Google protested, demanding higher wages and benefits.

DDoS attacks send massive amounts of traffic to websites that can't handle the load, with the intention of shutting them down. Mirai took over hundreds of thousands of computers and connected devices like security cameras and DVRs, and directed them for cyberattacks and traffic scams. Specifically, the AX88U and its four antennas promise wireless speeds of up to 6,000 Mbps -- up from 2,600 Mbps with the previous generation -- and it's compatible with the Asus AiMesh system if you want to add some extenders throughout your home to maximize coverage. Like with other Wi-Fi 6 routers, your existing Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 4 devices will still be able to connect just fine, but don't expect them to be much faster, if at all. You'll need Wi-Fi 6 devices in order to take advantage of everything that a Wi-Fi 6 router like this one has to offer. Read more on CNET.
Schedule a TripClark Bird Olsen was born on June 22, 1933, in Boston. His father, Arthur, was also a Unitarian minister, and his mother, Catherine (Bird) Olsen, was a homemaker. The new lawsuit is seeking damages in the amount of .2 billion, according to the Detroit Free Press, alleging that the misrepresented mileage could have cost owners somewhere in the neighborhood of ,000 per year in additional fuel costs compared to what was advertised.
Each wire runs vertically up through the mud, measuring up to two inches in length. And each one is made up of thousands of cells stacked on top of each other like a tower of coins. The cells build a protein sleeve around themselves that conducts electricity. While faking audio and video has been around in some form for decades, machine learning has recently made it significantly easier to produce counterfeit speech that actually crosses the uncanny valley into the realm of believability.
Schedule a TripIn the neighboring district, Ms. Rice riled up some national and local Democrats with her outspoken opposition to Nancy Pelosi’s ascent as speaker. Mr. McElwee’s group commissioned a poll of how Ms. Rice’s opposition to Ms. Pelosi was received, along with her positions on other progressive issues. There are some basic requirements, but they're all pretty straightforward. The car needs to be within 500 meters of the indicated parking location at the agreed-upon time, and the vehicle must be easily accessible. The windows and doors need to be closed and locked, with the vehicle in Park, and it must be devoid of valuables, animals and people. The car also needs a solid connection with the Mercedes Me network, which is how the courier is granted vehicle access.
There’s no question that on the debate stage decorum dictates that most participants will play it safe in the classic suit and tie (if relevant). But details matter, and certain precedents have been set. Comcast is expanding its inexpensive Internet Essentials program to all low-income households throughout its entire service area, opening up the program to individuals with disabilities, as well as to senior citizens. The expansion of the program will more than double the number of households that can access the .95 a month service, increasing it to about 7 million.
Schedule a TripA great deal, apparently, as this new “Hellboy” (with David Harbour replacing the irreplaceable Ron Perlman as our knobheaded hero) tears through multiple countries, 16 centuries and a bevy of supernatural sources to save mankind from, among other things, a bunch of enraged giants. (The insane script, a bedlam of witches, fairies, Nazis and ectoplasm, is by Andrew Cosby.) In Hellboy’s way stands Milla Jovovich as a reconstituted sorceress (previously sliced-and-diced for our safety) and an array of imaginative weapons including electrified pigstickers, Excalibur and a proper English breakfast. No prizes for guessing which is the most deadly. --A new microkernal design and Trusted Execution Environment will beef up security.

US copyright law has allowed certain nonprofit institutions to grab over-the-air TV signals and retransmit them to nonpaying viewers, such as a university setting up an antenna that can retransmit to students in its dorms. Aereo, as a for-profit company, used a different, technological loophole when it argued its service was legal.
“It’s not about the empire anymore, it’s not about Lucious anymore, it’s not about our kids,” she said. “It’s about her.” An anonymous post to the notorious 4chan imageboard on Saturday appears to have provided details of Jeffrey Epstein's death before the first news reports of the disgraced financier's suspected suicide. The 4chan post, which was earlier reported by Buzzfeed News, was published more than a half hour before the initial news reports that Epstein, who was held on charges of sex trafficking, was dead.
