    Representative Mondaire Jones (D-NY) said Friday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that Tesla CEO Elon Musk is “demonstrably out of touch with reality.” Guest-host Mehdi Hasan asked, “One more question about the whole extremism discussion. What is your reaction to Elon Musk, soon to be a new owner of Twitter, saying that the Democratic Party, your party, has been taken over by extremists? You are a freshman congressman. A progressive is he referring to people like you?”

    DETROIT — The bishop who officiated Aretha Franklin’s funeral apologized Friday to Ariana Grande for how he touched her onstage and a joke he made about her name. Bishop Charles H. Ellis III led Franklin’s funeral and awkwardly greeted Grande on stage after she performed “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Images of the moment showed Ellis’ hand holding Grande well above her waist, with his fingers pressing against one side of her chest. The preacher apologized in an interview with The Associated Press at the cemetery where Franklin was interred late Friday.
  • What makes a faster typist?

    04/15/2018 1:34:03 AM PDT · by LibWhacker · 74 replies
    The largest-ever dataset on typing speeds and styles, based on 136 million keystrokes from 168,000 volunteers, finds that the fastest typists not only make fewer errors, but they often type the next key before the previous one has been released.  Crowdsourcing experiments that allow us to analyse how people interact with computers on a large scale are instrumental for identifying solution principles for the design of next-generation user interfaces.Per Ola Kristensson The data was collected by researchers from Aalto University in Finland and the University of Cambridge. Volunteers from over 200 countries took the typing test, which is freely available...

Weep tears for the hunters who took these two out in the field. The video clip is prefaced by, "The following video contains scenes of animal butchering. Discretion is advised for younger or more sensitive viewers."

    Ah, the airport, where modern folk heroes are made. The airport, where that inspired flight attendant did what everyone who’s ever been in the spam-in-a-can crush of a flying aluminum tube — where we collectively pretend that a clutch of peanuts is a meal and a seat cushion is a “flotation device” — has always dreamed of doing: pull the lever, blow the door, explode the chute, grab a beer, slide to the tarmac, and walk through the gates to the sanity that lies beyond. Not since Rick and Louis disappeared into the Casablanca fog headed for the Free French...

    Toshiba has unveiled a new dual-screen, touch-screen mini laptop designed for surfing the internet, sending and receiving emails and keeping up to speed with social networking sites on the move. The Libretto W100 runs Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system, and has two 7in, LED-backlit touch-screens. Toshiba says its compact size and clamshell form factor provides "unrivalled flexibility". "One screen can be used for content creation, like Word documents or emails, while the other could be used to browse the web, social networks or multimedia programmes," said Toshiba, the company that invented the laptop 25 years ago. "Additionally, the device can...

    Blagojevich corruption trial may touch ObamaToday at 08:52 | Reuters CHICAGO, June 2 (Reuters) - Even Rod Blagojevich's lawyer finds him a bit strange, which may provide the key to the former Illinois governor's strategy at his upcoming corruption trial -- he was all talk, but no action. **SNIP** Another possible wild card in Blagojevich's long-awaited trial that begins on Thursday is whether it will entangle Obama and his aides in Illinois' hurly-burly political theater. The trial, which is expected to last up to four months, may expose discrepancies in how members of Obama's future administration characterized its contacts with...

    4/9/2010 - BAGHDAD (AFNS) -- A mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle towers near the height of an 18 wheeler. Weighing-in at more than 20 tons, MRAPs are designed to survive blasts from improvised explosive devices and small-arms fire. This near impenetrable MRAP can transport Airmen, Marines, Soldiers, and Sailors in and out of the battlefield, without hesitation at blazing speeds. The gunner, who can possess a massive .50-caliber weapon, and driver, who commands actions within this war machine, are nearly in sync as they relay commands to each other via internal communication systems. This machine is every guy's dream to drive, but...

    You can't say this new administration isn't changing Washington. Because politically, the nation's capital is starting to look a lot like Chicago on the Potomac, complete with the sleazy deals and subsequent embarrassment. We're supposed to believe that any resemblance between the goings-on in the Windy City, whose civic culture is legendary for its, uh, ethical flexibility, and the current process of picking a Cabinet is purely coincidental. Just because the new president came out of the Daley machine, and had his own ethical problems before he became the Hope of the World, doesn't mean Barack Obama can't reform Washington....

    What women really want: a touch on the arm By Laura Clout Last Updated: 1:42AM BST 21/06/2008 Scientists have come up with a winning formula for men wishing to seduce women, and it has nothing to do with cheesy chat-up lines or good looks. Research shows that a man can significantly increase his pulling power by simply catching a woman's eye and lightly touching her arm. A study at Aberdeen University found that two-thirds of women agreed to dance with a man who rested his hand on her arm for a second or two while making the request. When the...

    The biggest fiction behind James Bond is that the fantasy master spy and world-class heartbreaker lived past 40-something. It’s not just the death traps and vodka martinis, or even the three packs of cigarettes a day, that would have shortened his life. His naked ring finger would have too. Because real men need wives. Consider the data: Married men—regardless of age, sex, race, income or education—consistently have been found to be healthier than men who are single, divorced or widowed. This so-called “marriage benefit” begins to kick in right after the wedding, then builds. Husbands ages 18 to 44 are...

"I thought it was awesome to get to see all these country stars," Tech. Sgt. Kimberly Haugen said backstage between the 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. shows. "Everyone spoke to me, and they thanked me for doing time in the service. It's amazing how many people here have been in the Air Force or the Army or the Marines or whatever." Haugen,...

    GULFPORT, Mississippi, Nov. 1, 2005 - Through the efforts of Operation Homelink, personnel stationed at Naval Construction Battalion Center, Gulfport, were able to receive 100 free, refurbished computers. The PCs, which are valued at more than $30,000, were given away during a four-hour period Oct. 28 to military families impacted by Hurricane Katrina, particularly those who have a service member preparing to deploy overseas. “This is an outstanding opportunity for our troops who suffered loss,” said Cmdr. Rodney Duggins, supply officer at the Seabee base. Northrop Grumman, one of the government’s largest providers of information technology systems and services, donated...
