It also gives them a letter grade (A-E), based on how fair the TOS is to the user. DuckDuckGo gets an A, Wikipedia gets a B, PornHub gets a D, Reddit gets an E.

Here is a short explanation.
>the technology actually wasn’t designed for chairs. It’s part of Nissan’s intelligent parking assist technology, which is being developed for hands-free parking.
>“This is a very useful function, not only for those who are bad at parking, but also for skillful drivers who are tired and less focused after a long drive,” says one of the developers in the promotional video.
>For now, the self-tucking chairs just seem to be a clever prototype to test out the self-parking technology.
When I was a kid (1960s) I owned an air bazooka, about 2.5' long with a pump action. I remember sitting on my front steps and shooting at the trees across the street, causing quite a disturbance in the leaves. That was about 80' or so. It was loud, too. Fun!

>You see, severing one of the Bloodwood tree's branches results in the same kind of effect you might find if you chopped off a person's limb. Upon receiving damage, the tree releases a deep crimson sap that looks alarmingly like human blood. In fact, its sole purpose is to coagulate and seal wounds, much like our own blood does.

My mom had that same problem with email drafts getting deleted (WHY google has a confirmation for send or delete but not for discard draft, I will never know dear God), I've started using - with her permission - a chrome plugin called typio form recovery. It basically captures everything she writes on Chrome locally, and then you can recover to a given page for a user set amount of time. It of course has blacklists of sites you don't want it to work on.
It's made my it life a lot easier, helping her recover drafts on a number of occasions. Also a similar app for android type machine, except this works across the entire device.
Again, both of these are functionally keyloggers. Beware of using them if your device is used on a corporate network, and of course is only is legal if you use it with the full consent and explanation to whoever's device it is.

Yep. Gingrich lobotomized congress, too. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/newt-gingrich-congress-expert-knowledge-_b_1118297
This created a state where congress relies on industry and philanthropy for it's expertise on issues as well as funds for election. Because those who fund such things are likely to be more invested and partisan the more $$ they give/fund, the more partisan and extreme the politicians they choose. It self-selects for those individuals/entities who have the most passionate and extreme goals/views. You don't pump that kind of cash into something unless you feel like you have to.

you can get a <em>floating</em> rotating globe on Amazon for almost 1/10th the price at your door in two days!
I mean the quality probably isn't as nice, but it's something. Something in stock!
They make tools exactly like this, and they're made for repairing shingles, putting nails into a shingle without having to risk breaking the shingle on top of it. They should have demonstrated by doing that.
I’ve used https://privacy.com in the past. You can create a virtual debit card instantly and set a limit.
So you create one with a $1 limit. If a company tries to charge it more than that it’s denied. I’ve used it for tons of free trials without issues.
This is some old school copy pasta. I remember seeing a screen cap of this from 4chan in like 2010.

I have one, and it does work pretty well. The bag you carry it in is the same material. However if you are on a beach with rougher sand that has a lot of tiny pebbles, or sea shells, it will not filter them. Also, if the mat gets really wet sand tends to stick, but as it dries (and it does so quickly), it's fine. Works really well on beaches that have fine sand and they are extremely durable. I am surprised I don't see more people with them when I go to the beach.
Edit: Here's a link to one on amazon. They come in various sizes and aren't that cheap. There is a product video on amazon that shows it being used as a landing mat for helicopters in dusty, sandy areas. Pretty sweet.
Okay but hear me out... we all know the health benefits of honey, and it turns out that blue mnm dye can help heal spinal injuries. What if the bees have invented something powerful?
Here's the tool with packs of "pop" rivets that you can find on Amazon. Basically the rivet end get's pushed through a pilot hole to fasten two pieces of metal where you can't get access to the rear to screw on a nut. The pliers type tool grabs the nails and pulls the rivet up against a small anvil. This pressure eventually deforms the soft aluminum rivet as the head of the nail gets pulled into the thick heart of the rivet. When the head of the nail is wedged tightly against the rear plate, the pressure breaks the nail off flush with the front plate.
theres this thing i found on amazon, not sure if there is a specific genre for it but if you search flashlight/shadow/lightbeam books on amazon or something you'd find some choices. i hope you find a good one for your kid!
Imma say that this is false :
> Bees do not urinate because they have to hold onto as much water in their bodies as possible. Instead, they release liquid waste in the form of uric acid.
> Uric acid contains very little water, so it is safe for the bee to get rid of. Insects such as bees produce waste in an organ called Malpighian tubules, which are the insect version of kidneys. Ammonia and uric acid travel to the insect's gut where it is mixed with other waste products before being expelled from the body.
> The amount of uric acid a bee expels is very small, so it is usually hard to see. The uric acid from a bee is white and looks like a bird feces.
Most all other sources agree that uric acid (and sometimes pollen grains) are the only waste products of bees and that the acid is white and contains little liquid.
EDIT: maybe I'm wrong, though id on;t think this is "urinating" seems there is something to it though.

No it's not. The building is mostly condos but if you want to stay there an Airbnb only costs $185 a night.
Adding trees to a building incurs significant upfront and ongoing costs. From the extra concrete to support the weight to making sure that they don't fall down and kill people. Maintaining trees like that is going to take more than a couple low wage laborers could provide.
Certainly cool though and if could afford to live in a building like that I would. But if it is going to be widespread, than it needs to save more than it costs. I'm not sure we really have enough data yet to say that the costs are worth it.
Uh, what? What kind of mental and grammatical gymnastics is this?

The whites in the tuning buttons are clipped. You can actually see in the subsequent models that there are some ridges in the ivory that you can't see on the 3Gs.

To my knowledge, Michelangelo himself did not paint this image of Heraclitus.
Raphael depicted Heraclitus as Michelangelo due to the similarities between their personalities. Both were supposedly moody but brilliant figures for their time.
Vasari claims that Bramante let Raphael see the Sistine Chapel while it was still a work in progress. Raphael painted Heraclitus as Michelangelo afterward in honor of the artist.

i rarely talk about this because it makes me out to be a soulless evil asshole with no compassion, but overpopulation of the earth is a very real and very serious problem. no one wants to think about how their great-great-great-grandchildren are going to have enough to eat on a planet with 15 billion people on it.
just like the global warming issue, no one's going to really start doing anything about it until it's too late
edit: of course no one knows what's going to happen in the future, only what's already happened. but look at the data: During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. . sure, the rate of growth is declining, but until it drops to zero or negative, there will come a time when there are simply too many people to feed (and if those people want meat in their diet, then the animals will not only also need population growth, but they'll need to be fed too). but who cares what our descendants are going to have to deal with hundreds of years in the future, right? out of sight, out of mind

The private sector made a killing during WW1 and 2.

Even though you were making a joke, I actually think a (relatively) cheap version of this could be reproduced with a Raspberry Pi or Arduino, a used kinect, and some parts for the car itself (motors, etc).

There may be a problem with powering all the utilities, but other than that I'd say it can be done for under $300 assuming the kinect was purchased for a reasonable price. That said, there may also be cheaper ways such as multiple webcams or sensors.
Holy shit, that link took me down an Amazon rabbit hole. I finally ended on this (NSFW?) before I realized I needed to bail. The reviews are hilarious though.
Nope! Velocities don't add the way you think they do. At low speeds (and really also at what we consider high speeds, like say 40 000 mph) they appear to add like w = u + v, but to get exact results you need to use special relativity. When the speeds start approaching something like 20% of the speed of light, the errors you get by simple additions are getting large.
Play around with this calculator a bit. I recommend having the units set to c, i.e. fractions of the speed of light.
For example: if you travel at 0.5 c and shine a flashlight, that light moves at 0.5 c + 1 c = 1 c.
If you travel at 0.8 c and fire a projectile forward at 0.5 c, it travels at 0.8 c + 0.5 c = 0.9286 c relative to you.

> being able to win in a turning fight is going to be important
Turning fights are starting to become irrelevant. If you get close enough to be in one with a modern fighter, the odds are that you will both die. From the report I link.
> Once both aircraft have “launch and leave” missiles in the air, prospects are good that the short-range engagement will result in “mutual kills,” with short-range combat kill ratios near 1:1. This suggests we may have reached a point in the development of short-range air combat technologies where serious, capable adversaries will attempt to avoid it and instead seek advantage in superior BVR capabilities.
