The US Senate has voted to cast aside privacy regulations that stop ISPs from sharing users browser data (and other personal information) with third-parties. The Senate voted 50-48 (following party lines) to overturn the regulations which were approved by the FCC last autumn, with todays decision meaning that the rules shall have no force or effect, as Ars Technica reports. Specifically, the FCCs rules want to force ISPs to have to get consent from the user before they can sell or share data pertaining to that user including browsing history, app usage, and personal information that could include financial or health details. With the regulations, users would have to opt-in to allow this sort of information to be shared. Without them, there is no need for ISPs to get consent before they can make use of their subscribers data.

From animatronic dinosaurs to [Jeff Goldblum]'s prosthetic chest hair, Jurassic Park is known for its practical effects and props. While it's not as fancy as a breathing triceratops, YouTube's god of resin casting has recreated one of the more endearing props from this movie. [Peter Brown] and [Pocket83] made a replica of the amber-topped cane carried by John Hammond, and it took him two years to do it. The mosquito in amber' walking cane prop from Jurassic Park is just what you think it is a large mosquito-looking bug trapped in 100 million year old amber. Of course, finding such a chunk of amber with the included mosquito would cost a fortune, so [Peter] turned to polyurethane resin. This block of resin was cast in two halves, with a mosquito eater' (or a crane fly) embedded in the middle. It took two years for [Peter] to cast this block of amber, but really all but two weeks of that was waiting for a few adult crane flys to appear.

The invaders were pretty hideous, like nothing I had ever seen before—until in 1955 when I saw a similar-looking creature in the Universal movie This Island Earth .” (Cult cinema fans will recognize this as the film that was riffed in 1996’s Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie .) These twin sources provided the inspiration for the physical appearance of the aliens that popped up on Toppscards. Decades later, the Mars Attacks! movie reproduced this design quite faithfully. Hey if it isnt broken, dont fix it… 4. WHY DID SO MANY CELEBRITIES JOIN THE CAST? THANK JACK NICHOLSON. Let’s do a quick head count. Glenn Close, Martin Short, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Michael J. Fox, and Sarah Jessica Parker are just a few of the big names on this movie’s mile-long list of stars. And yet, when the casting process began, Mars Attacks! struggled to attract any players with serious marquee value.

) She tackled the Life of Christ with a passel of animals, special effects, and 300 extras. She popped viewers eyes with candy-colored hand tinting. She built a state-of-the-art film studio in Fort Lee, New Jersey, pruning the terrain to serve as a variety of landscapes. Viewed from the lens of 2017, one of her most startling achievements is 1912’s A Fool and His Money , an excerpt of which is below. The tale itself is an unremarkable crowdpleaser: a poor guy falls in love with a wealthy young woman. He goes to great lengths to woo her, outfitting himself with fancy duds and throwing a huge party, only to be bested by a flashy rival. What is remarkable is that Guy-Blaché was white and the film’s cast is entirely African-American. According to essayist Stratton, the characters are portrayed with none of the explicit racism DW Griffith brought to The Birth of a Nation three years later.

Yanukovych is also suspected of mass murder and multibillion-dollar corruption. Voronenkov, who was a member of Russia’s State Duma during that time and supported the vote for the annexation of Crimea, testified in the case against Yanukovych in January, he said. He was expected to give more testimony on the day he was murdered, according to Lutsenko. However, by the time of the murder the Prosecutor General’s Office had already completed work on the high treason case against Yanukovych: It was passed to the court for hearing on March 14. After fleeing to Ukraine, Voronenkov said he hadnt wanted to vote for the annexation of Crimea, but was forced to do so. In other interviews, he claimed he wasnt even present at parliament for the vote, and that his vote was cast in absentia. Kyiv Post staff writer Oksana Grytsenko contributed to this story.

On the eve of the attack that Prime Minister Theresa May cast as an attack on democracy, Masood spent his last night in a budget hotel in Brighton on the south coast where he ate a takeaway kebab, the Sun newspaper said. An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, May told parliament. He took out his rage indiscriminately against innocent men, women and children.

It’s almost impossible these days to avoid media coverage of Russia’s role in hacking the 2016 election. So it was in 2015, when news broke that Chinese hackers had breached the U.S. Office of Personnel Management . Likewise for big cyberattacks the year in 2014 ( Sony Pictures , Home Depot ) and the year before that ( Target ). For the public, it’s usually these kinds of incidents that come to mind when they hear the termcybersecurity.” They are complex and costly, and cast doubt on the trustworthiness of our major institutions—from government to banks to the electric grid.

We talk with Life cast members Ariyon Bakare and Rebecca Ferguson. (video link) Life , a new sci-fi thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, requires no launch countdown. An International Space Station crew of six is in the midst of retrieving a Mars soil sample as the centerpiece of an eight-month mission. And naturally, the camera starts rolling right when the probe that's supposed to bring that sample on board has taken some rock damage. The situation now requires a high-tension spacewalk in order to operate a mechanical arm and snag the capsule. But don't worry—our heroes have snarky, American mission specialist Rory Adams (Reynolds) around. "I used to play catch when I was in tee-ball," he tells his colleagues while they all sweat out the do-or-die moment. The impact is fierce and rocks our point of view for a second... but this crew has it under control.
