    Gears of Biz ^ | August 14, 2017
    According to an August 11 article published by #Harper’s Bazaar, anyone who is married to a supporter of President Trump needs to file for divorce immediately. That’s the advice given by the article’s author, #Jennifer Wright, who cites two recent high-profile divorce cases in which a wife filed for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable political differences. In July, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader by the name of Lynn Aronberg split from her husband, Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg. The wife, who identified herself as a staunch Republican, claimed that she felt “increasingly isolated” in her marriage to a Democrat. More...

    A big player in the world of entertainment and digital media plans to bring 4,000 jobs and a 70-acre campus to Parker by 2020. At an Aug. 11 press conference at the state Capitol in Denver, Gov. John Hickenlooper, Parker officials and Redbarre executives announced plans to create the Redbarre Digital Media & Technology Campus in the Compark area just north of E-470. The 1.9 million-square-foot, mixed-use development will focus on feature film, television and digital media production. "Something like that can be transformational," said Dennis Houston, CEO of the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce. "It's life changing, what it...
  • When is a Russian 'hack' not a hack? Evidence suggests DNC email hack was an inside job

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 11, 2017 | Jennifer Kerns
    One year ago, the news broke that the Democratic National Committee had been hacked. Tongues began wagging and fingers began pointing that Russia was behind it. However, Democrats might want to get the Kremlin on the phone and offer an apology because a new report suggests the DNC hack may not have been a "hack" at all. It could have been an inside job. According to a new report at The Nation, forensic experts and former national security advisers have quietly gathered over the last several months to examine the breach and they have determined the DNC email hack heard...

    Bill O'Reilly, to his credit, didn't take the firing by Fox News laying down. He soon started a podcast in his home wearing a casual polo shirt. He went live tonight with a new studio complete with scrolling marquee at the bottom of the podcast video and wearing a suit like he did on "The Factor". He clearly has a crew working behind the scenes and it's located in an office building somewhere by the looks of it. It looks very professional, and while it is a startup at this point, it could turn into a network at some point.
  • Get ready for the 'tech alt-right' to gain power and influence in Silicon Valley

    Business Insider ^ | August 9, 2017 | James D. Miller, Contributor
    The firing of James Damore over his "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber" memo will empower the tech alt-right. To understand why, imagine yourself as a Republican working at a big Silicon Valley tech company. You agree with Damore that some average differences between men and women probably explain some of why such a high proportion of computer programmers are male. You, however, in no way consider yourself sexist. What Damore's termination tells you is that many in your field consider people with your beliefs to be unfit to work with. They hold opinions of you similar to those of former senior...

    It’s already the meal you turn to when you’re looking to expend as little effort as possible, and now pizza chains across the U.S. — and the U.K. — are looking to simplify the process to purchase a pie. The latest innovation comes from Little Caesars, which on Monday introduced its new Reserve-N-Ready service. The key to the service is a device known as the Pizza Portal, which is being heralded as the first heated, self-service mobile order pickup station in the fast-food industry. So what does this mean for you? In essence, you can now get your pizza without...

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | August 4, 2017 | Johnny Edwards
    The federal judge presiding over the case of accused National Security Agency leaker Reality Winner has come down on prosecutors’ side in a dispute over rules of evidence, which defense attorneys have said could jeopardize her right to a fair trial. In a ruling Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps said defense attorneys cannot talk about classified information in open court, even if it has already been published in the news media. Epps granted prosecutors’ motion for a protective order designed to keep an alleged leaker from leaking further, and to force those defending her to tread lightly, lest they...

    Antonio Garcia Martinez fears revolution and armed conflict will erupt in America in the coming decades A former Facebook executive has quit his job and now lives as a recluse in the wilderness – because he is convinced that machines will take over the world. Antonio Garcia Martinez worked as a project manager for the social media giant in Silicon Valley but became terrified by the relentless march of technology. He reckons that machines will have taken half of humanity’s jobs within 30 years, sparking revolt and armed conflict. So he quit his job, fled his home and now lives...

    Online reviews site Yelp will open its newest East Coast office in the District, and says it will create 500 new jobs over five years. Yelp pledged to hire D.C. residents for at least half of those new positions. Mayor Muriel Bowser, whose administration remains committed to bringing more tech jobs to the city, made the announcement Friday morning. San Francisco-based Yelp has other locations in New York City, Chicago, London, Hamburg and Scottsdale, Ariz. Yelp said it chose Washington, D.C. for its newest office because of the city’s thriving technology community, talented workforce and its proximity to other East...

Facebook’s massive weight is squatting on most conservative news sites, including this one, now down by 50 percent while having broken our own Facebook records a scant two months ago.

    Perhaps if federal or state legislators refuse to report or cooperate with authorities investigating crimes committed by their staff, they should be considered a part of the conspiracy. In post—9/11 America, “If you see something, say something” has become the unofficial slogan of the Department of Homeland Security, with the idea of enlisting American citizens to help identify real terrorism threats. Yet California Democrats in Congress apparently ignored this advisory with their silence, support and promotion of possible terrorists in their own workplace. The Congressional hacking suspects—the Pakistani born Awan brothers—ran the Information Technology (IT) for dozens of Democrat congressmen...

    A woman’s Facebook post claiming to have used breast milk while baking brownies for a school bake sale has garnered international outrage. Although the claim in the post has not yet been verified, a Facebook page called “Sanctimommy” received thousands of shares for the bizarre rant. According to the post, a woman tried posting three separate times about making brownies using breast milk for a school bake sale. The woman states other mothers found out about the breast milk and are “blowing it way out of proportion”:

    It's no secret that the economy is changing. As technology plays a greater role in our personal and professional lives, our economy too increasingly relies on technology to create jobs and encourage growth. Technology is the foundation of our digital economy, and its modern infrastructure is data. However, in order to use data, we need a place to process and store it - in other words, data centers. Data centers are facilities that house the computers that process data. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are three million data centers across the country - including here in Alabama....

  • Want to Revive U.S. Manufacturing? Walmart has Some Suggestions

    Engineering ^ | July 28, 2017 | Ian Wright
    Revitalizing American manufacturing has been a hot topic for some time, gaining prominence as a talking point in last year’s election. Donald Trump’s victory led many to speculate about the future of manufacturing in the U.S., particularly whether it’s possible to bring manufacturing back to America. The latest piece of advice on this topic comes from a rather surprising source: Walmart. The retail giant recently convened a meeting of representatives from governments, businesses and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to present a Policy Roadmap to Renew U.S. Manufacturing. “As we’ve worked over the last four years alongside our suppliers toward our goal...

    The Seattle Times ^ | July 30, 2017 | Steve Lohr, The New York Times
    Salaries have risen in places like South Asia, making outsourcing there less of a bargain. In addition, as brands pour energy and money into their websites and mobile apps, more of them are deciding that there is value in having developers in the same time zone. For years, U.S. companies have been saving money by “offshoring” jobs — hiring people in India and other distant cubicle farms. Today, some of those jobs are being outsourced again — in the United States. Nexient, a software outsourcing company, reflects the evolving geography of technology work. It holds daily video meetings with one...

    Fox News has such an influence on Donald Trump that US journalists now react to the president’s proclamations on Twitter by searching for the Fox and Friends segment that inspired them. This intimate feedback loop between the Fox morning show and the president has made it “the most powerful TV show in America”, in the words of a New York Times critic. For Rupert Murdoch, a ruthless player in conservative politics across continents, such influence is striking. But it’s not new. Liberal critics of the administration, however, are now turning the spotlight on what they see as a troubling new...

Congratulations, and Many Thanks, to Jim, John, and the rest of the management team of Free Republic, the best website on the internet.
