Nothing to be seen here

And in other news: The Turkish airforce today shot down their first drone in anger.
The PDF mentions blackmail involving medical data, missing is the fact that your medical information is worth 10 times more than your credit card number on the black market ( Caroline Humer and Jim Finkle, reuters.com 09/24/2014 ).
But should we make te sign of the cross in the traditional Russian Orthodox way with two fingers or with three fingers as introduced by Patriach Nikon in the 1650's?
van Solingen and Berghout distinguish 4 dimensions: People, Quality, Cost and Time. You cannot sacifice one without paying with the other.

may be in reprint. Mine is the one with the book in the pocket.
No FB in the North Sea.
No cement dust here. I can only mention my neighbours PC full of perfumed cat hair.
RFID tags are passive until activated by an RFID detector. So I build an RFID detector detector. A simple 13.56 MHz receiver, a voltagecomparator and a bleeper. Fun to see the panic of the ticket collector when you approach their RFID reader with the device.
Amazon Indians solved that for you. They wear their T-shirts inside-out back-to-front, to proudly show its most interesting detail: the manufacturers label.
@Fraggle850: My socks are not are not the same. One has a large R on it, the other a large L. It brings bad luck if I pick two lefties or - even worse - two right socks.
Great skiing resort. Gravity a little more than 1/20, atmospheric pressure roughly 10-6 to 10-5 that on Earth with occasional strong winds. But bring your own radioisotopic bodywarmer.
What is the chassis number?

These images are radar echoes, which are more like a sonogram than a photograph. The views were obtained by pairing NASA's 230-foot-wide (70-meter) Deep Space Network antenna at Goldstone, California, with the 330-foot (100-meter) National Science Foundation Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia. Using this approach, the Goldstone antenna beams a radar signal at an asteroid and Green Bank receives the reflections. The technique, referred to as a bistatic observation, dramatically improves the amount of detail that can be seen in radar images. The new views obtained with the technique show features as small as about 25 feet (7.5 meters) wide.
Image caption: Delay-Doppler images of 1999 JD6 obtained on July 25, 2015 using DSS-14 to transmit and GBT to receive. Resolution is 7.5 m x 0.5 Hz. Range increases down and Doppler frequency increases to the right. Each image contains 300 sec of data. The images span 2.5 h of the object's rotation.
The robotic insect produced by the engineers was able to exert up to 16 times its own body weight (68 milligram) on the water's surface without breaking through.
Jeez, we only need a raft of 270x270 of these critter to walk on water (380x380 in the USA).
It is very simple indeed, just read the Copyright Law of the United States of America § 107.
Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include--
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
Most minimally invasive surgery or "robo-operations" are performed under general anesthesia with a 1:400 risk of (minimal) brain damage. This and the general risk of an operation are not evaluated by Alemzadeh et al. Which does not mean there is no room for improvement since surgeons started in the 19th century to wash their hands before surgery.
The tensile strength of steel is 80000 to 330000 lbs/inch². So the strut was probably only 1/8 to 1/32 inch thick. In tension it should have been strong enough, in compression it would buckle. The weight of the strut or struts was only a faction of the (AFAIK) 1000000+ lbs Falcon where every gram counts ....
BTW The timber in many old buildings is some four times heavier than necessary, because architects could not calculate the minimum requirements.
water is still wet. There are an estimated 3 million shipwrecks on the bottom of the oceans with a total area of 361 million km². So the average distance from wreck to wreck is 10 km and much less in the well-trodden shiplanes.
BTW, I am a fan of deep-sea exploration.
Penguin, because they love the sea too.
On wednesday 12 May 1937 the BBC had three cameras and one mobile video unit connected by 8 miles of balanced cable ready to broadcast the coronation of King George VI.
The Marconi-EMI equipment had all just been delivered and set-up the day before, with the television vans only just completed in time for the event. On the day of the coronation it nearly all worked perfectly first time with no problems reported from any of the three camera positions or the engineers being relayed the pictures back at Alexandra Palace. The problem that did arise nearly cost the entire transmission however. Just as the royal procession was nearing the first camera position a dryjoint in the vision relay circuitry in the control truck shorted out and the picture transmission stopped. Bernard Greenhead, who had been responsible for much of the equipment (including its installation and operation on the great day), took a guess at which panel would be the cause of the problem. Giving the offending relay rack a sharp kick with his shoe, the circuit was re-established and with barely three minutes to spare, picture transmission commenced.

You know, that's
probably exactly what gmail runs on (:

What could possibly go wrong with Apple's super-secure Homekit?

Knocked down by a bus? The chance to get a fatal road accident on the way to buy a lottery ticket can be 16 times higher than the chance to win the jackpot.
This case was described in Scientific American. People from New York had to buy the lottery tickets in New Jersey.
Satya's mail contains 9 times the word more. Never was this comparative used in a comparation. This is IMHO one of the hallmarks of fascistoid verbiage.
BTW Jehovah's Witnesses have to talk on average 5000 hours to win one soul. A.N. Walker converted me to the UNIX environment in a fraction of that time. And Microsoft ™? ... Still trying.
The Artis Zoo library in Amsterdam does exactly that. It is the most efficient use of shelf space.
You didn't obscure 16 (sixteen!) phallic symbols!

LED lamps contain scarce metals, but only in tiny amounts (fraction of a milligram). Recycling LED lamps for those metals is currently not cost effective.
The paper of Euro notes contain thulium, the second least abundant of the rare earth metals. It is visible as fluorescent fibers under ultraviolet light. I do not know how the notes are recycled, but I do not think they will end up in landfill sites.
The documents from 2005:
Ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) decomposes exothermally at 210 °C in H2O (steam) and N2O (laughing gas). N2O is a better oxidizer than pure oxygen.
So a mixture of ammonium nitrate and organic matter is a powerful explosive. It is however known to explode spontaneously.
N2O in itself is stable. In 1914 Robert H. Goddard patented a rocket apparatus powered by N2O and gasoline.
