Enlarge (credit: GHETTO UBER DRIVER ) After a former Uber engineer's blog post went viral over the weekend, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick vowed on Twitter that his company will begin an “urgent investigation” into newly public allegations of sexual harassment. 1/ What's described here is abhorrent & against everything we believe in. Anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired. https://t.co/6q29N7AL6Etravis kalanick (@travisk) February 20, 2017 Kalanick's comments came Sunday evening, hours after Susan J. Fowler, who had been a site reliability engineer, wrote on her blog that she experienced what amounted to institutional sexism within the company. The experience ultimately drove Fowler to quit. Fowler, who worked at Uber from November 2015 until December 2016, opened her piece with a sordid episode during her first few weeks of the company: Read 3 remaining paragraphs | Comments

By Benjamin Fulford The battle to take down the Khazarian mafia is intensifying and reaching the point where the arrests of just a few dozen ring leaders may be enough to liberate humanity from this Satan worshipping scourge. Years of forensic research and testimony from multiple intelligence agency sources in Russia, Japan, China, the US, England, France etc. have now zeroed in on key ringleaders of the Khazarian mafia who need to be arrested or executed. Before naming names though, first of all we need to clearly identify the overall target. That is a sub-set of the so-called Jewish population that is described in the Book of Ruth in the Old Testament or Torah. These are people who worship Satan (Baal, Molech etc.) and practice both human sacrifice and cannibalism. They have thousands of years’ experience in infiltrating societies and taking secret control of the top levels of power through murder, blackmail, bribery and propaganda.

Stuart Andrews 7 min 58 sec ago Sponsored The trend is clear: educational IT services are moving to the cloud. There may only be a minority of UK schools and colleges that have currently moved over, but the shift is inexorable, because the benefits are clear and work on a number of levelseducational, operational and financial. C-Learning provides services to help support a school or college transition to the cloud, drawing on extensive UK and international experience focused entirely on education. The most obvious benefit of moving to the cloud, particularly when taking the Google G Suite for Education approach, is the cost. In addition to G Suite for Education being free, the price of a Google Chromebook, from HP for example, is low enough that an entire student cohort can be equipped with one. There are many successful models of adoption across primary, secondary and independent schools and colleges.

18. THE SONG "I HATE MYSELF AND I WANT TO DIE" FEATURES A JACK HANDEY DEEP THOUGHT." Even though the threat of lawsuits stopped the band from naming an album "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die," it didn't stop them from recording a song with the title "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die," although it might be the reason that it was left off of the In Utero album. Instead, the song with the misunderstood title (it was supposed to be a joke) found a home as the opening track on The Beavis and Butt-head Experience compilation album. But in the middle of the song, after helping to promote one television show, Cobain acknowledged a different, more mainstream show when he mumbled , "Most people don't realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer," an SNL Deep Thought" from Jack Handey.

It’s funny, I went up with a friend of mine to Laguna Seca for a Golden Gate Lotus Club gathering about 10 years ago. We were sitting in on a little meeting and a guy that was there, a real Lotus guru, started talking about all the problems that you can expect to experience with Lotuses, particularly the Elan. With so many miles, you can expect to have problems with this and that, etc. Baffled, I finally raised my hand and said, You know. The way you talk about the Elan, my car should have turned to dust about 300,000 miles ago because it's got half a million on it now. People just looked at me like, You're joking. I found the thing that fails the most is the gaiter—the little rubber thing around the gearshift. It breaks apart easily. I've probably replaced that at least 20 times. Other than that, the original muffler lasted 25 years and the only reason I got rid of it was because it was rusty and ugly —i t was still working.

Motion design: UI and UX Collection abduzeedo Feb 20, 2017 Motion design is intrinsically useful for product design, especially when designing for mobile devices. Even experience designers might have a difficult time evaluation solutions on the computer without testing on the device. In addition to that, there's so much information that can be lost by using the old approach of static mocks. Those are just a couple of reasons why motion design and prototype are mandatory steps during the product design process. After Effects, Principle, Framer, Javascript or straight native Java or Swift are some of the tool available. They all have their pros and cons but the important thing is that they all gives us that extra level of information to helps us on our decision making process to deliver the best user interface. On this post I will share some motion design projects on user interface.

Real-life DRL racing drones are fully customizable, and so are their simulated counterparts. Outdoor maps are fairly realistic, but the simulator really comes into its own indoors, where LED-clad drones hurtle through a Bladerunner-style tangle of neon. DRL Drone Racing Simulator is compatible with both console and RC controllers. Theres a menu option for keyboard controls, but in our tests the sim failed to detect any hardware; something of a moot point, because the fine-control necessary for navigating the complex courses at high speed would be almost impossible with key-hammering. Download here: DRL Drone Racing Simulator 2. Hotprops A stylish sim for amateur drone racers who want full control over their quadcopter's handling Hotprops is also in active beta, available to download and enjoy with no restrictions. Like DRL Drone Racing Simulator, the goal of this great-looking sim is to reproduce the experience of FPV drone-racing as accurately as possible, with advanced physics courtesy of the Unity game engine.

AOC has revealed a pair of new curved gaming monitors which benefit from a three-sides frameless design, along with AMDs FreeSync technology. The two new Agon models are 31.5-inch (AG322QCX) and 27-inch (AG272FCX) in size, with screens that boast a curvature of 1800mm, the most pronounced curve the Agon range has seen yet for the maximum effect in terms of producing an immersive gaming experience. And that immersion is boosted further by the frameless design on three sides meaning all the edges are extremely thin save for the bottom bezel, as you can see from the image above (note that Phillips revealed a monitor which uses this trick last week, as well). These are 16:9 aspect ratio monitors (not ultra-wide or 21:9, as is often the case with larger curved screens) built with VA panels offering a Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution in the case of the smaller model, and 2560 x 1440-pixels for the larger 31.

Gamers can either follow the campaign and command the UNSC faction through a series of battles, or play online with six-player traditional skirmish battles and base-controlling game modes. Halo Wars 2 brings with it a selection of new game modes and next generation graphics – but what do the critics think of the highly anticipated sequel? Gamespot says that Halo Wars 2 appears to be an "RTS game for Halo fans and a Halo game for RTS fans", but ultimately the "very light" experience "runs out of steam quickly". The cinematic cutscenes fail to develop the characters "in a meaningful way" and feel more like "eye-candy" than a means of pulling the player into the universe, adds the site. Nevertheless, the cutscenes are often "gorgeous" and feature characters that deliver their lines in a manner that luckily overlooks the "cheesy action movie lines".

Virtual reality It's not a certainty by any means but the fact that Bethesda is working on a full game virtual reality experience for Fallout 4 at least indicates it's a possibility for a future Elder Scrolls game. Todd Howard said that at the moment you can play the entirety of Fallout 4 on VR, so we're expecting its release soon. Once it's in the wild and players are using it, Bethesda will have the chance to receive feedback and improve upon it. Elder Scrolls 6 would be a good time to showcase these improvements. What would we like to see? Well, something wed like to see and fully expect to see is improved graphics and reduced bugginess. The remastered version of Skyrim showed just how far things have come visually since the games first release so we fully expect any title following on from it to be of that standard if not much higher, depending on how far away the game is.

The ones with the metal shielding performed a lot worse than the bare black bodied one. In fact, look at the two scope shots below. Can you differentiate between the bit pattern associated with the remote and the lighter? Interestingly, the IR receivers offered no response to the lighter, after the initial ignition. This is mainly down to the AGC finally compensating for the blinding IR source and the over all high attenuation low frequency signals experience through the IR receiver. In any case, this makes the investigation interesting. It is clearly possible to induce some sort of bit pattern using a lighter! But can this be used to produce a deliberate pattern or are we always just confined to error prone gibberish? Lets build a test rig to get to the bottom of this! Test Three The results from test two were a bit of a revelation. We now need to test whether a reliable bit stream could be produced with a lighter or any other deliberate low frequency IR perturbation.

Jeanie now makes all the calls, but she doesn't want to in basketball operations. Joey and Jesse are expectedalong with Walton and Johnsonto be increasingly involved with those moves in the future. Whomever the Lakers hire if they replace Kupchak will be the critical decision. But whatever anyone says about Johnson's lack of front-office experience, at least he hasn't been the one doing the damage to the Lakers product in recent years. Valid reason exists to believe Johnson will forge better relationships with agents and other league operativesit would take him five minutes to take 25 steps at All-Star Weekend because of how many would stop him to say hiand also inside an organization that Jeanie wants to have the sort of solidarity her father used to build.
