org recently. He was described as a man with brown hair and a mustache. I couldnt find any younger pictures of John on the internet besides the one below in 1993. He appears to have brown hair, but no mustache in any photos of him on the web. Thanks to a comment from a reader on this blog they have provided a photo of John Podesta in college, with dark hair and a mustache, just like the in the description from the documentary: John Podesta 1971 There are several e-mails of him being referred to as ‘Skippy’. Pedophile code words were also found in his e-mails and it is a strong possibility that he and his brother Tony Podesta are Luciferian pedophiles. Source: Huffington Post He was born in 1949 which would have made him 20 or so when Cathy’s tragic murder occurred. Per his Wikipedia page it says: “John Podesta identifies himself as a Catholic and has worked closely with Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United.

This story was originally published in 2014. We're resurfacing it today because, well, it's a Bank Holiday and we thought you'd enjoy a geeky blast from the Internet past. A few days ago, my wife messaged me a photo from a thrift shop with the question, "You want?" The picture was of a box of software still in shrinkwrapSPRY Inc.'s Internet in a Box for Windows 95. The answer was an obvious "OMG YES." I reviewed Internet in a Box back in 1993 when it was first released as an early adopter of independent local Internet dialup (using David Troy's Toad.Net ). I spent endless hours connected with the software and my very first laptop PC, pulling down Hubble Telescope images from the Space Telescope Science Institute's Gopher server and raging at Usenet posts. Just the sight of the logo caused a wave of nostalgia to wash over me. It was a simpler time, a somewhat less user-friendly time. CompuServe was still a thing. Read 11 remaining paragraphs | Comments

Enlarge / Tron 2 may not have been the best movie, but it sure made the internet look pretty. (credit: Disney) There's nothing like the feeling of finding a group of true friends, or a gang of like-minded people who share your interests and annoyances. If you love technology as much as we do at Ars , that feeling probably hit you at some point when you were online. Today the Ars staff is celebrating some of the Internet communities we've loved. Sometimes an online group is just a place to bitch about work, and sometimes it's a place to share your deepest secrets. Some of us found love online, and others found hope for the future of civil liberties. We gamed, we had deep discussions, we figured out how to prank dumb users, we talked about sports and science and digital surveillance. And we're still doing it here, in Ars comments and forums. These are our stories, but they are yours, too.

At the end of the “Little Ice Age,” in 1859, the Sunburped,” spewing out two coronal mass ejections (CMEs), accompanied by solar flares and other solar activity, that hit Earth. This become known as the Carrington Event (named after British astronomer Richard Carrington who observed a solar flare that preceded the main event). At the time unusual auroras were seen around the world due to the solar outburst, and the primitive mid-nineteenth century telegraph lines were overloaded by the incoming charged particles and accompanying geomagnetic storm. Overall, in 1859 the solar outburst caused little more than minor damage and a bit of an inconvenience for those who utilised the telegraph lines. If a Carrington-level event were to hit today, the story would be much different! A Carrington-level event could knock out modern electronics around the globe, bringing computer systems, electrical grids, the Internet, communications, satellites, and much more to a standstill.

Jakob Nielsen surveyed users on their responses to popups: 95% of them rated the experience of “pop-ups in front of your window” as negative. That survey of 605 respondents was conducted in 2004. In Internet epochs, 2004 is the equivalent of the paleolithic era. And back in 2004, popups were pretty bad. I mean, look at this . Really? But today, popups have matured into an art form: they are helpful, compelling, useful, and valuable. The real truth? Popups are not bad. And if you want to increase conversions on your long-form content, I strongly suggest you use popups. Derek Halpern says it like this, If you dont use popups, you’re an idiot. I try not to call people idiots, but I do agree with Derek’s point: you should use popups. Popups are a useful, powerful, in-your-face technique that can skyrocket your conversions on long-form content. On his blog, Derek himself uses this popup on the article discussing popups: Think about it like this.

Quantum computing means, I’m going to look under every piece of hay simultaneously and find the needle immediately.” While these technologies are not silver bullets against cyber attacks, they are becoming vital tools in the cyber security industry, which is projected to grow from $74 billion last year to $100 billion in 2020. Part of this growth may be attributed to society's increasing reliance on the Internet of Things (IoT) . As everything from light bulbs to our jackets become digitally accessible, every person should be more concerned about cyber security. As we continue to see advancements in both AI and quantum computing technologies, more businesses and households will have access to these protective tools. AIs are already finding their places in different sectors of our society — including healthcare . Perhaps in addition to diagnosing medical images, AIs can also protect hospitals from future cyber attacks.

A popular Chinese dating app for lesbians has been shut down, along with its website and main social media account, just as the gay community celebrates Taiwan's decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry, a first for Asia. The app, Rela, set up in 2012, has around 5 million registered users, a cached version of its entry on Apple's iTunes site shows. But users began noticing last week that the app, along with its Twitter-like Weibo account and website, was no longer accessible, according to users posting on Weibo under the hashtags #rela and #relahasbeenblocked. The service was temporarily suspended due to an "important adjustment in service," Rela told users on its WeChat app account. "Rela has always been with you and please await its return!" it added, but gave no details of why it was suspending service. "This is discrimination against us lesbians," wrote one user on Weibo.

Kiev security services on Monday said they were conducting searches in the Ukrainian offices of the popular Russian internet company Yandex as part of a treason probe. "The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) is conducting searches in the offices of the subsidiary of the Russian company Yandex in Kiev and Odessa", SBU spokeswoman Olena Gitlyanska wrote on her Facebook page. Gitlyanska specified that the search is part of a criminal probe into "state treason", though without specifying what Yandex Ukraine's alleged role is in the probe. The company's press service told Russian news agency Tass that they have no information about the reasons of SBU actions. "Lawyers are already on their way to our offices", Yandex said, adding that the company is ready to "provide the necessary information." Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told AFP that "there is not enough information to understand what is going on - are these investigative actions or an audit".

When Micheal Williams, a Republican and a self-described fiscal conservative, saw the plan, he was stunned. “I thought, ‘Oh my God,’” Williams said. “I dont know if they really thought this through.” Williams is mayor of Union County, which never fully recovered from the loss of its textile industry when it shifted to Mexico after NAFTA. When Trump promised to bring back manufacturing jobs, voters there lined up behind him. But last week when Trump released his budget, the message they got from the president was that they were on their own. The bulk of Union County’s $42.8 million budget is funded by property taxes. With a population of less than 20,000 and a median income of $37,000, there’s no way to raise money for big projects. Some residents still rely on dial-up internet, and a rural elementary school needs a $500,000 upgrade to its water and septic system.
