Absolutely - it's probably the most striking feature, isn't it? Yes, but I think it just adds that extra layer of personal meaning to it, doesn't it? The lighting and cloud formations didn't correspond to the rainbow. Now, thanks to research by a meteorologist, there's an explanation.

Neither Allied Progress nor its Action arm are required to disclose their donors. Mike Czin, an Allied Progress spokesman with the public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker, would not say who its financial supporters are. While that is fairly standard for a political advocacy group, Allied Progress' relationships with its fiscal sponsors provide an additional layer of opacity to its finances. Generally donors to nonprofit groups can be ascertained from financial filings by the groups that donate to them. Charitable foundations and labor unions, for instance, are required to disclose grants and contributions to groups such as Allied Progress. However, because the group is not a stand-alone organization but a "project of the New Venture Fund," as its website notes, its donors can simply list the fiscal sponsorNVF or Sixteen Thirty, as the case may be—rather than Allied Progress itself on their respective disclosures.

Upspin looks a bit like a global file system, but its real contribution is a set of interfaces, protocols, and components from which an information management system can be built, with properties such as security and access control suited to a modern, networked world. Upspin is not an "app" or a web service, but rather a suite of software components, intended to run in the network and on devices connected to it, that together provide a secure, modern information storage and sharing network. Upspin is a layer of infrastructure that other software and services can build on to facilitate secure access and sharing. This is an open source contribution, not a Google product. We have not yet integrated with the Key Transparency server, though we expect to eventually, and for now use a similar technique of securely publishing all key updates. File storage is inherently an archival medium without forward secrecy; loss of the user's encryption keys implies loss of content, though we do provide for key rotation.

These three portable printers connect to your smartphone over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, then produce business card-sized prints that you can stick on the fridge or share with your friends. Here's what I liked and disliked about each after testing all of them. HP Sprocket ( $130 at Amazon | Film $10 for 20 images ) HP HP Sprocket What I liked: HP's printer made some of the nicest prints of the bunch. It's also tiny and light enough to stick into your bag and take to your next party or on your next trip. After you print a photo, you can choose to peel a layer off the back to turn it into a sticker, which is lots of fun. HP's companion app, meanwhile, is dead simple to use. What I didn't like: I noticed some vertical lines when examining my prints carefully, but this isn't pro-level printing gear we're talking about here. I also had to restart my phone to get the Sprocket to connect the first time, though it was solid thereafter.

Add layer after layer after layer of new complex regulations to the practice of medicine, and soon enough you need millions of paper-pushing employees to monitor compliance, enforce compliance, pursue administrative and criminal charges of non-compliance, file claims and counter-claims, defend the innocent from false accusations, write hundreds of pages of new regulations, and so on. Yes, there is a place for common-sense regulations, and procedures to vet caregivers and track standards of care, etc. But the system is now so onerous and out of control that the practice of medicine now requires far more attorneys and compliance-regulatory-paper-pushers than it does doctors and nurses. This is but one example of America's obsessive penchant for criminalizing and over-regulating everyday life. No wonder America has over 20 million people with felony convictions, many for drug-related offenses that should have been treated as medical conditions (such as addiction).

for Nintendo 3DS. Gaming's biggest characters are here (along with a few of the more obscure) - Mario, Sonic, Link, Mega Man, Samus Aran, Little Mac, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, and dozens of others - all duking it out in stages based on hit Nintendo properties. If you've played any previous game in this series, you know the drill: whittle down your opponents with standard attacks and special moves, then send 'em flying off the stage! Naturally, you can play the game solo, or you can fight in matches with up to four players either locally or online. The best New 3DS and New 3DS XL deals If you're a fan of RPGs, the 3DS is a great choice of console and Bravely Second: End Layer is one of the best games in the genre. From Square Enix, it's the sequel to the highly praised JRPG Bravely Default. Bravely Second is a continuation of the story in the original game, two and a half years later, bringing in new worlds to explore and new enemies to defeat in the same turn-based combat system.

Tucked away in the south of the Côte de Beaune, in the village of Corgoloin, Jourdan devotes himself entirely to his three village Burgundies, with no other distractions from more famous locations. They are made for early drinking, and come from exceptional stock: remarkably, his 1959s are still in perfect condition. The Week Wines price: £170.10, usually £201.00. Click here to order Domaine du Nozay Sancerre 2015 This classic Sancerre almost qualifies as a yardstick of what can be achieved with the Sauvignon Blanc grape in the Loire Valley. It is the polar opposite of the New Zealand take on this grape, which can be overwhelmingly floral. The superb 2015 vintage adds another layer of depth to this wine, which cries out for a white fish such as seabass or turbot, though, because of its perfume and freshness, it can easily be drunk without any accompanying food.

The first stage, of course, is the full nanny state, groceries in the boot, everything on mode. There’s so little grip on a frozen lake that any car will slip and slide a little, but by and large the electronic systems keep us in good shape and the back of the car pointing rearwards. Image 6 of 8 Image 6 of 8 Several seconds later I switch into sport mode. Like in most sports modes this sharpens the throttle response and speeds up the gearshifts, as well as removing a layer of stability assistance. You can now feel the rear end step out under power by a few degrees before the computers trigger the brakes and kill the throttle to bring things back under control. On the road that’ll let you enjoy the playful balance of a powerful rear-wheel drive car without the risk of becoming a reluctant YouTube star. Press the stability control button once and you remove one more layer of assistance.

On top of [Mark]'s computer are the processor and EPROM, while on the lower board are the RAM, UART, clock, and address decoding logic. It runs at 1.8 MHz, has 16 kB of ROM and 32 kB of RAM, which seems inconsequential in 2017 but would have been a rather impressive spec in the early 1980s. There are three rows of pins connecting the boards, with the address bus carried up the middle and everything else at the edges. He's toying with the idea of a third layer containing a keyboard and video display driver, something to look forward to. The computer isn't all on the page though, rather than wait for one to arrive he's built his own EPROM programmer on a breadboard. He doesn't have an eraser though, so has resorted to the Australian sunshine to (slowly) provide the UV light he needs. We've featured other [Grant Searle] designs before, including a Sony Watchman clock with a Z80 board behind it , and another tiny board, this time with a Z80 rather than a 6502.

They found that millimeter waves penetrated the subject’s skin at depths of between 1.05 mm at 20 GHz to 0.78 mm at 38 GHz. This is enough to penetrate below the epidermal layer of the skin. Millimeter waves have been reported to produce a variety of bioeffects, many of which are quite unexpected from radiation penetrated less than 1 mm into biological tissues. Of particular concern is the citing of studies that show there is an irreversible water memory effect by millimeter waves operating in the 36GHz frequency, and that the millimeter wave effects on blood plasma vary greatly from one person to the next. Does this information make you extremely uncomfortable? Well, it should. And it should also make every one of us mad as hell. Since the day they first rolled out these human violation technologies in 2007, I have always chosen to “opt out”.

The container has been specially engineered to enable the ketchup, or any other sticky liquid, to slip out easily. Scientists coat the inside with a rough surface. They then put a thin layer over it, and they cover that with a liquid which fills in the troughs and forms a very slippery surface, like an oily floor. The ketchup hovers on top, and just glides out of the bottle. This coating process could cut huge amounts of waste.
