A sharp increase in right-wingers pretending to be black on Twitter as they troll people has been noted. "I'm used to trolling, and it doesn't bother me, but the idea of a black woman selling her sons out to police with everything we know now was so sad to me that I couldn't wrap my mind around it. And the idea that anyone — let alone a black person — could say Emmett Till deserved to die is just so beyond the pale," he said. Over the past few months, Black Twitter has noticed an increase in the number of white trolls creating fake Twitter accounts. Newkirk says he first noticed this around election time last year, when people began posting directions on how to create these fake accounts on websites and forums. This sounds like a play-for-play repeat of a strategy defined during the gamergate imbroglio: a generic female name, a googled cutesy avatar and a comically idealized personality that supposedly will bring the enemy to their knees but which convinces no-one but fellow believers.

As proof of the quality, look at the condition these pieces are still in after nearly half a century of everyday use. Look at a piece made in the 1950s or 1960s and you'll see that structurally and cosmetically, they're almost always in excellent shape. Well cared for, they will last you another 40 - 75 years. Compare that to a floor model in a shop by one of the modern-day "mid century look" manufacturers, and you can instantly see how four months on a showroom floor have weathered a piece of new production furniture to the point that it is nearly unsellable. Additionally, most new production knock offs are made in low-cost factories overseas using low-quality materials. These pieces are merely mirroring the look of good design, without having put in the work to understand ergonomics, craftsmanship, functionality and form. Sitting in an original Arne Jacobsen Egg chair versus a cheap new production "Egg" chair from China, you will instantly be able to tell the difference in comfort and quality.

Alaska announced late Wednesday it will retire the Virgin brand, probably in 2019, adding that name to a list including Continental and US Airways that disappeared in the past decade.

Enlarge / Wanna try out SFV 's latest fighter, Kolin, for free? Capcom's week-long online-update beta, starting next week, will let you do just that. Ars' review of Street Fighter V in February of last year began with this simple declaration: "Definitely good, definitely unfinished." Now 13 months later, Capcom is finally tiptoeing towards the fighting game's complete state as one of the game's most crucial elements will get a major unveil next weekend: a full netcode rehaul. "We understand that Street Fighter V ’s server performance has been a less than optimal experience for many of our players," a Capcom staffer frankly admitted at the company's official blog on Thursday. That comment was followed by an announcement of the "Capcom Fighters Network" (basically, the game's underlying matchmaking and connectivity system) receiving a full overhaul—and a week-long freebie to put money where Capcom's mouth is.

By Samuel Fisher In June of 2016, about three months after the Brussels bombings, the Westminster Council voted to scrap a camera network of over 75 different spots in central London area. BBC reports that the reason cited for this was to save “£1.7m in upgrade costs.” Instead of using this money to upgrade the cameras, they thought they could instead spend that money on other crime-fighting measures. This move was reportedly labeled a “huge, huge loss to police” by London police expert David Videcette. It also lessened the city’s ability to monitor the terrorist attack that occurred recently on March 22. It is unclear whether or not the loss of cameras had an impact on the recent investigation of the events in London. UK police expert David Videcette was considerably unhappy about the loss of these cameras, which his website says were recording 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and kept for up to 31 days.

Suddenly MAC addresses left a never-ending series of digital footprints that revealed a dizzying array of information about our comings and goings, including what time we left the bar last night, how many times we were there in the past month, the time we leave for work each day, and the route we take to get there. Eventually, engineers at Apple and Google realized the potential for abuse and took action. Their solution was to rotate through a sequence of regularly changing pseudo-random addresses when casually probing near-by access points. That way, Wi-Fi devices that logged MAC addresses wouldn't be able to correlate probes to a unique device. Only when a phone actually connected to a Wi-Fi network would it reveal the unique MAC address it was tied to. Apple introduced MAC address randomization in June 2014, with the release of iOS 8. A few months later, Google's Android operating system added experimental support for the measure.

Heavy demolition equipment including diggers and dumper trucks have been seen working on the site in the last couple of weeks, and half of the building has now been knocked down.

MGX's process potentially reduces recovery times of lithium and other valuable minerals from 18 months to one day, compared with conventional lithium extraction. To earn a 75% working interest, MGX must make payments totaling US$2mln on or before September 1, 2018 . It can choose to accelerate payments and issue consideration totaling $1.7mln on or before September 1, 2017, in which case the vendor will waive any additional payments due. MGX has granted the vendor a 'carry period' whereby MGX shall be responsible for all expenses. This will be satisfied once MGX has made all required payments or drilled at least one well on the Leases on or before February 28, 2020. Upon satisfying these conditions MGX shall earn an undivided 75% working interest and the seller shall be responsible to contribute proportionate expenses equal to their interest

It's day two of the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas and it's time to reflect upon everything we've learned in the past 24 hours. The opening song used to introduce John Mellor, Vice President of Strategy, Alliances & Marketing at Adobe, had some very fitting lyrics that fit the subject matter at hand: "the world won't change if you stay the same." The theme of this session was less about product this time, less about tech and more focused on inspiration and reinvention. Mellor proved to have a few more tricks up his sleeve.

New data show U.S. home sales advanced in February while job layoffs rose slightly last week. Thursday's Commerce Department report showed home sales rose 6.1 percent to hit a seven-month high in February. If newly-constructed homes sold at last month's pace for a full year, 592,000 would change hands. That is nearly 13 percent better than the same time last year. Analysts at Wells Fargo Securities said unusually mild weather in February sped up the buying process, so the next few months may see slower sales. The number of Americans signing up for unemployment assistance rose by 15,000 last week, according to the Labor Department. While the number of layoffs was higher, at 258,000 it is still low enough to show a healthy job market.

The third day after this process begins, the resurrection is complete, marked by the 22nd of March. The number 22 also symbolizes rebirth in kabbalistic tradition. To further underscore the three-day resurrection allegory, the 12 houses of the Zodiac can also be considered 12 great days of the calendar year. When the Sun dies on the cross, on December 21st, it spends three days in the tomb of death, three months after the Winter Solstice. The sunrise on 22nd of March is the first day after three great days of the Zodiacal calendar, symbolically depicting the time when the Christ rises from the tomb of death or the Season of Death. March 22nd and the Season of Sacrifice The exact day for the beginning of the Season of Sacrifice is contested amongst occult researchers. Some contend that since the Sun begins its rise on the 19th of March that this is the beginning of the season, whereas others assert that since the resurrection requires three days, then it must begin on March 22nd.
