Two years ago, when Garry Kasparov, the chess champion turned political dissident, began to warn that Vladimir Putin sought to undermine liberal democracy—not only in neighboring countries, but all over the West—he was widely written off as a crank. After Russia managed to hack the servers of the Democratic National Committee and spread fake news on an industrial scale, his warnings were finally recognized as all too prescient. But it is only over the past weeks, as journalists around the world have broken dozens of stories about Russian meddling in the democratic process, that the sheer scale of this effort has become apparent.

As this job seeker's "faith in the front-facing application process eroded into near oblivion," a lower-tech strategy took its place. As this job seeker's "faith in the front-facing application process eroded into near oblivion," a lower-tech strategy took its place. I have a great job, and there's no rush to leave. As a director at a national nonprofit I've built some fantastic teams, but over the past year they've gotten so good at what they do that I've begun to wonder whether I'm still needed. So I started slowly casting about for new challenges, initially by applying (perhaps naively) to openings at well-known tech companies like Google, Slack, Facebook, and Squarespace. Read Full Story

Ferrari Good news, everyone: the 2017 Formula 1 season starts this weekend. As has become tradition, the first race of the year is in Melbourne, Australia, meaning those of us in Europe or North America can expect a late night or very early morning. This will be the first year under new management—with Liberty having purchased F1 from CVC, ousting Bernie in the process —and also the first year for new aerodynamics regulations and new tires. The two preseason tests have come and gone, but yet again—and despite more than 20 years following the sport—I still have no idea who's going to come out on top. Black and round The principal complaint about F1 in recent years—along with inaudible engines, exorbitant ticket prices, and the boredom of overwhelming Mercedes domination—has been the Pirelli tires. Specifically, it's about the tires' inability to cope with more than one heat cycle.

Other interesting features include built-in Wi-Fi and a clip-on GPS adaptor supplied with the camera (though not our review sample) and dual SD card slots for backups (saving to both cards simultaneously), overflow (using the second card when the first is full), or for separating JPEGs from raw files. The X1D is very much a raw camera. The JPEGs it saves are just one-quarter size, and designed for quick reference or sharing, not for final use. Instead, you use Hasselblads own Phocus raw conversion/editing software to process your images, or a third-party program like Adobe Camera Raw. The best full-frame DSLRs you can buy right now Build and handling Milled aluminium body Excellent digital spirit level 725g The Hasselblad X1D may be comparatively small, but its still a solid and hefty camera, and although the body is impressively light at well under a kilogram, the lenses are pretty substantial and do push the weight up.

Nine victims are still unaccounted for. A Chinese salvage company fitted 33 beams beneath the hull and used 66 hydraulic jacks to raise the hull of the ship, which was lying on its left side at a depth of 40 meters below the sea. The recovered vessel will soon be moved to the nearby port of Mokpo on the mainland. “We are calculating that it will take about 12 to 13 days to move the ferry to dry dock of Mokpo port,” said Lee with the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries. Families of the victims , the head of a group representing the families of the Sewol victims, released a statement Thursday urging the government to “work on recovery of the missing victims first.” The group also wants more government transparency and participation by opposition parties and victim’s families in the investigation process. Lee Kum-hee, whose daughter is one of the nine victims unaccounted for, was on hand to witness the recovery.

A police raid in Birmingham last night is thought to be connected to the incident, with some reports suggesting the Hyundai i40 used was hired by someone living at that address. Murdered PC named as Keith Palmer The police officer stabbed to death by an as-yet unidentified killer outside the Palace of Westminster yesterday was PC Keith Palmer, 48, a husband and father. The other three victims have not been named but it is known that three French schoolchildren and a Romanian couple were among those hurt on Westminster Bridge.

“The president himself and others in the Trump transition team were clearly put into intelligence reports,” Nunes said outside the White House. “Some of it seems to be inappropriate.” Nunes refused to say precisely where he obtained the intelligence reports, prompting swift criticism from the House Intelligence Committee’s ranking Democrat, who called Nunesactionsgravely concerning.” Schiff Discusses Need for Independent Commission Calls for an independent commission If the Chairman [Nunes] is going to continue to go to the White House rather than his own Committee, there’s no way we can conduct this investigation,” said Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. “We need to have an independent commission,” he said. A top Republican lawmaker also voiced concern that the process had run amok. “No longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone, and I dont say that lightly,” Senator John McCain told MSNBC late Wednesday, calling for either an independent commission or a special committee to investigate.

Back in the day, building a DIY radio was fun! We only had to get our hands at a germanium diode, make some coils, and with a resistor and long wire as an antenna maybe we could get some sound out of those old white earplugs. That was back then. Now we have things like the Si4703 FM tuner chip that can tune in FM radio in the 76108 MHz range, comes with integrated AGC and AFC, controlled by I2C, as well as a bunch of other acronyms which seem to make the whole DIY radio-building process outdated. The challenges of the past resulted in the proven solutions of the present in which we build upon. This little project by [Patrick Müller] is a modern radio DIY tutorial . With an Arduino Nano as the brains and controller for an Si4703 breakout board, he builds a completely functional and portable FM radio. A small OLED display lets the user see audio volume, frequency, selected station and still has space left to show the current available battery voltage.

Wednesday on Fox News Channels Your World, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) predicted the legislation scheduled for a vote Thursday that would begin the process of repealing Obamacare would fail because he argued it not only didnt have the votes in the Senate but the House as well. This bill is going to fail, Lee said. It is going to fail because it doesnt have enough support in the House of Representatives and it doesnt have enough support in the Senate. Ive talked to a whole lot of people enough people that I know that it is going to fall short of a majority in the House and its going to fall short of a majority in the Senate, he added. Look, if they know something that I dont, perhaps theyll be smiling 24 hours from now. But if theyre so confident, theyre not going to need to worry about my vote, theyre not going to need to worry about the votes of a whole lot of other people in the House and in the Senate who are concerned that this bill doesnt do what we promise to do, which was repeal Obamacare in its entirety.

The government has slapped criminal charges on senior monks and continues financial investigations. “The Dhammakaya movement is now in a process of decay,” Mano said. “No more can they conduct their activity in the same way they did before. No big ceremonies.” The government wants Dhammajayo defrocked, but only the Sangha Council can do that. Even if it does so, resolving the case could take years if it is appealed. Some observers predict the junta will confiscate Dhammakaya assets by pursuing legal charges against the temple’s foundation, which holds much of its property. Elections are scheduled in 2018, and some believe the junta is racing to cement its allies in key positions before it must hand the reins to a civilian party. The extent to which they succeed could determine Thailand’s delicate balance of power in upcoming years.
