Sirena Bergman 4 min 47 sec ago Life Culture When Serial hit the digital airwaves in October 2014, the podcast world was taken by a storm. Suddenly, people who had previously been oblivious to the niche world of on-demand audio content were frantically awaiting the next instalment of the weekly show that delved into the minutia of an 15-year-old crime. Amidst a flurry of media coverage and word-of-mouth publicity, Serial grew bigger and bigger, reaching 230 million downloads across two seasons. In the intervening two-and-a-half years, interest in podcasts has continued to soar, with big media organisations such as Buzzfeed and The New York Times investing heavily in the medium, while independent producers found themselves with more success than they could have dreamed of just a few years previously. As a result, more and more people are turning to podcasts for everything from politics to comedy, while bloggers , authors and YouTubers are leveraging audio content as a way to expand their audience.

Identification, Please So one way or another, you have a bitmapped image of a fingerprint. Now what? Apparently, there are three types of fingerprint patterns: arch, loop, and whorl. The arch is just what it sounds like and starts on one side of the finger and goes to the other. The loop doubles back and exits the same side it started. The whorl circles around a central point. Interestingly, family members often have similar fingerprint patterns, but even identical twins don't have the exact same prints. There are several algorithms for matching prints, but the most common one is the minutia matching algorithm. This looks at three things: where your ridges end, very short ridges, and places where ridges split into two. Based on those, there's enough information to differentiate your print from most other people's. You can find a short but scholarly paper describing the process if you want to try your own implementation.

Drawing from psychological research on the nature of tension and suspense, series creator Michael Tucker highlights certain “key components of tension experiences,” including uncertainty, instability, and a lack of control, and shows how Tarantino uses them to heighten the tension as much as possible throughout these seventeen minutes. “It’s like the suspense is a rubber band,” Tarantino says in a Charlie Rose interview clip included in the video, “and I’m just stretching it and stretching it and stretching it to see how far it can stretch.” Tarantino also uses a suite of techniques that moviegoers have come to associate specifically with him, such as long stretches of dialogue that go off on extended tangents (“Part of my plan,” he says in another interview clip, “is to bury it in so much minutia about nothing that you dont realize you’re being told an important plot point until it becomes important”), the charged consumption of food and drink , and the potential for carnage at any moment.

Pet cats and dogs can remember the location of their food bowls and sometimes even how to perform tricks or find their way home. But just how good (or bad) are these fur balls at remembering the minutia of their days?

The Screen Actors Guild Awards occurred shortly after the president signed an executive order banning people from Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. During an acceptance speech for his performance in Moonlight, Ali spoke at length about his faith and the value of immigration. Heres an excerpt from the full speech : We kind of get caught up in the minutia and the details that make us all different. I think theres two ways of seeing that: Theres an opportunity to see the texture of that person, the characteristics that make them unique, and then theres the opportunity to go to war about it, and to say that that person is different than me, and I dont like you, so lets battle.

real minutia, fisheries policies? Employment, there is a lot. Obviously, the EU has been legislating for the UK for more than 40 years. So a lot of our laws derive from Europe. Now, some of them, you may.

On May 1, 1969, Fred Rogers stepped before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Communication and explained what exactly his job entailed. Rogers, the man behind the PBS show Mister Rogers Neighborhood, had gone to Washington, D.C., to defend public television from budget cuts . President Richard Nixon had proposed slashing funding for programming such as Rogers in half as the war in Vietnam raged on. Sitting in front of Sen. John O. Pastore, the chairman of the subcommittee, Rogers didnt get bogged down in budgetary minutia . Instead, he talked about what he hoped to accomplish with his show. He used it, he said, to help children learn to deal with their problems in a healthy manner ― to instill a sense of confidence in the kids he worked with and who watched him. He used simple sentences and simple words to get his point across: This is what I give.

For now we’ll focus on the minutia of the cooking options, available in the now timeworn S, SE, SE Technology, SE L and Laurent & Klement trim levels, and starting at £17,055.The good news for bargain hunters is the standard-to-all-models adoption of the latest generation of infotainment system, the upgrade bringing with it not only a better class of touchscreen, but also a SmartLink software upgrade that makes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available at entry-level.Most UK buyers will leapfrog that prospect though and plump for either the SE or SE Technology. The latter gets the desirable navigation system and wi-fi hotspot capacity that marks it out as our range pick – although the range-topping Laurent & Klement is still distinguished by an uprated 9.2in display and Canton sound system.

We'll skip the minutia and leave it at high, high-level concepts for now: Harassment can include physical behavior (inappropriate touching, hitting, etc.), verbal behavior (teasing, lewd comments, etc.) and direct actions (work assignments, dismissals or threats of termination, etc.) Got it? 1,000 foot level. Let's descend a bit to talk about verbal harassment. Some things would be considered harassment regardless of the gender, ethnicity, religion or orientation of the target. If I make a point of loudly addressing one of my staff as "Dumb F***" and pile onto that with abusive language every time I give them instructions both in private or publicly, that's not okay. (All right, I'm wandering into hostile work environment land a little bit, but hang with me, we're not going to get sucked into that level of minutia here.) If that member of my staff quits and files for unemployment, I promise you, I'm going to have a hard time explaining my behavior to a judge on that.

I wish he had a bit of Theresa May about him, taking time, thinking things through, looking at the minutia I before enacting the policy.

Every once in awhile, the CIA gets its hands on a hard drive just full of data on American citizens, including millions of pages of text, videos and large amounts of photographs. So irrespective of long-standing prohibitions on the CIA spying on American citizens (apart from some very limited exceptions) they obviously are going to go through those documents. Today, the CIA released a declassified version of the procedures for handling the private data of American citizens. Unsurprisingly, this leaves open a lot of questions, with a lot of the rules detailing the minutia of the manner in which they search bulk data. The main talking point, which the CIA presented as a significant step , is that it defines actually which CIA employees are allowed to conduct searches of the bulk data they have, and that they actually need a reason to justify carrying out such a search.
