    This is a video of a technician climbing up to the top of a transmission tower to do some maintenance work.

    I loved dreadlocks long before I wore them, loved whatever I imagined they stood for, loved everything I thought they were supposed to mean. Before I grew my hair, a heartfelt question was lodged deep in my consciousness: “What would happen if a man who was, over the years, fairly consistent and quite conservative with his public persona, a man who was seen by his family, friends, colleagues and students in one particular way, suddenly exhibited himself in a way that ran radically counter to what people (thought they) had come to know in the years they knew him? What then?” Read more......

    An anonymous reader writes: Scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory have successfully uploaded and applied a software patch to NASA's Curiosity Rover on Mars. The patch fixes a focusing problem that cropped up in November when the laser that helps to focus one of its cameras failed. "Without this laser rangefinder, the ChemCam instrument was somewhat blind," said Roger Wiens, ChemCam principal investigator at Los Alamos. "The main laser that creates flashes of plasma when it analyzes rocks and soils up to 25 feet [7.6 meters] from the rover was not affected, but the laser analyses only work when the telescope projecting the laser light to the target is in focus." Before the fix, scientists had to shoot images at nine different focus settings to distill a decent set of data. Now, they say the new software results in better images in a single shot than even before the laser broke down. The program that runs the instrument is only 40 kilobytes in size. ...

    Mark Wilson sends word that Amazon will begin paying corporate taxes on profits made in the UK. The company had previously been recording most of its UK sales as being in Luxembourg, which let them avoid the higher taxes in the UK. But at the end of last year, UK regulators decided they were losing too much tax revenue because of this practice, so they began implementing legislation that would impose a 25% tax on corporations routing their profits elsewhere. Amazon is the first large corporation to make the change, and it's expected to put pressure on Google, Microsoft, Apple, and others to do the same. ...

    sciencehabit sends news of a study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology which found that science is still perceived as a predominantly male profession across the world. The results were broken out by country, and while the overall trend stayed consistent throughout (PDF), there were variations in perception. For explicit bias: "Countries where this association was strongest included South Africa and Japan. The United States ranked in the middle, with a score similar to Austria, Mexico, and Brazil. Portugal, Spain, and Canada were among the countries where the explicit bias was weakest." For implicit bias: "Denmark, Switzerland, Belgium, and Sweden were among the countries with the highest implicit bias scores. The United States again came in at the middle of the pack, scoring similarly to Singapore. Portugal, Spain, and Mexico had among the lowest implicit bias scores, though the respondents still associated science more with men than with women." ...

    Dave Knott writes: Fans of 1980s cinema were disappointed when the year 2015 arrived without a practical version Marty McFly's hoverboard. Now, a Montréal-based man has brought it closer to reality by setting a new record for longest "flight" by hoverboard. In a filmed test recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records, Catalin Alexandru Duru pilots his somewhat cumbersome looking rig for 250 meters — five times the previous record — at a height of five meters above Quebec's Lake Ouareau. Duru and his business partner "hope to have a new prototype finished by the end of the year and then have hoverboards available for purchase across the country. He wouldn't say how much the prototype cost to build, but said that the first generation of the machine will likely be 'quite expensive.'" "This thing is still quite dangerous," he added, explaining that the pilot uses only his or her feet to fly the contraption. The commercial version's software will limit it to flying belo...

    An anonymous reader writes: A new report from The Information (paywalled) says Google is working on an operating system called "Brillo" that would be a platform for Internet-of-things devices. It's supposedly a lightweight version of Android, capable of running on devices with extremely limited hardware — as little as 32 MB of RAM, for example. The company is expected to launch the code for Brillo at its I/O event next week. This is particularly relevant now that Google has acquired Nest, Dropcam, and Revolv — a trio of "smart home" companies whose devices could potentially by unified by Brillo. ...

    An anonymous reader writes: Palmer Luckey, founder of VR headset-maker Oculus, has been sued by a company accusing him of taking their confidential information and passing it off as his own. Total Recall Technologies, based in Hawaii, claims it hired Luckey in 2011 to build a head-mounted display. Part of that employment involved Luckey signing a confidentiality agreement. In August, 2012, Luckey launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Oculus Rift headset, and Facebook bought his company last year for $2 billion. TRT is seeking compensatory and punitive damages (PDF). ...

    BarbaraHudson writes: Reuters is reporting that the citizens of Ireland voted overwhelmingly to legalize same-sex marriages. While it's also legal in 19 other countries, Ireland was the first to decide this by putting the question to the citizens. "This has really touched a nerve in Ireland," Equality Minister Aodhan O'Riordain said at the main count center in Dublin. "It's a very strong message to every LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) young person in Ireland and every LGBT young person in the world." Observers say the loss of moral authority of the Catholic church after a series of sex scandals was a strong contributing factor, with priests limiting their appeals to the people sitting in their pews. In contrast, the "Yes" side dominated social media. ...

    An anonymous reader writes: The CTO behind Lucidchart, an online diagramming app, recently cited the open source rbush project as an invaluable tool for helping implement an "in-memory spatial index" that "increased spatial search performance by a factor of over 1,000 for large documents." My question is this: what risks does a SaaS company like Lucidchart face in making most of their own code public, like Google's recent move with Chrome for Android, and what benefits might be gained by doing so? Wouldn't sharing the code just generate more users and interest? Even if competitors did copy it, they'd always be a step behind the latest developments. ...

    theodp writes: "There you are watching another death on video," writes the NY Times' Teju Cole. "In the course of ordinary life — at lunch or in bed, in a car or in the park — you are suddenly plunged into someone else's crisis, someone else's horror. It arrives, absurdly, in the midst of banal things. That is how, late one afternoon in April, I watched Walter Scott die. The footage of his death, taken by a passer-by, had just been published online on the front page of The New York Times. I watched it, sitting at my desk in Brooklyn, and was stunned by it." Cole continues, "For most of human history, to see someone die, you had to be there. Depictions of death, if there were any, came later, at a certain remove of time and space." Disturbing as they may be (Cole notes he couldn't bear to watch the ISIS beheading videos), such images may ultimately change things for the better. Is it better to publish them than sweep them under the carpet? ...

    An anonymous reader writes: According to an article in ReadWrite, a team of British and American researchers have developed a hacker resistant process for online voting called Du-Vote. It uses a credit card-sized device that helps to divide the security-sensitive tasks between your computer and the device in a way that neither your computer nor the device learns how you voted (PDF). If a hacker managed to control the computer and the Du-Vote token, he still can't change the votes without being detected. ...

    Gabe: I forgot to post my Throwback Thursday art yesterday. It was a hit last week and I intended to do it again but just spaced it. So to make up for it I’m gonna post two incredibly embarrassing pieces of artwork from my past! I did this first comic book page back in 7th grade.

This was Sam and he was a teenage runaway with the exiled spirit of a disgraced angel living inside him because…high school. Please direct all…...

    Tycho: The strip is hyperbole, I mostly felt like the perspective needed to be made available.  I find the show very hard to watch right now, though; I guess it partly has to do with content, insofar as it’s just the weight of it.  Hitting play on that show right now feels like rigging up a Sword a Damocles and then sitting directly beneath it.

    Day one DLC is a tricky thing. If it's too good, people will howl that it should have been in the stand alone game at launch. If it sucks, then you can bet your sweet bippy that dogs will hunt. All of that goes triple for anything amiibo related. Those little plastic things make a lot of people very emotional. Maybe it's something in the paint. Still, I don't think anyone is going to be pissed off about the amiibo-exclusive content in Splatoon. It offers just the right balance of new fun and superfluous fluff. Scanning in the inkling boy amiibo opens up 15 stages from the game's standard campaign mode, but instead of being armed with a gun, you're given a slightly modified version of the roller weapon from multiplayer. All of these stages appear exactly as they do in the regular campaign, but being armed with an item that has very little range but does big melee damage demands you to tackle them in a new way. For every three stages you complete, you op...

    The premise behind Bad Lip Reading videos should have gone stale years ago, but the YouTube channel just keeps upping its game with stranger, more sophisticated videos each time.

Figure 1.0 shows snippet of my code where I create OrderedList and iterator classes. Figure 2.0 shows snippet my main function. When I compile it gives me the following error: " OrderedList.cpp: In instantiation of ‘MYLIB::OrderedList::iterator::iterator(MYLIB::OrderedList&, bool) [with T = int]’: OrderedList.cpp:215:53: required from here OrderedList.cpp:47:6: error: uninitialized reference member ‘MYLIB::OrderedList::iterator::order’ [-fpermissive] iterator(OrderedList& ord, bool is_end) ^ " ...

    Attempting to add a date validation to a .NET webpage (using C#). Comparing start date with end date to make sure that end date > start date. For some reason, I'm getting the following error: String was not recognized as valid a DateTime. Now I admit that this is my first go around with the DateTime method, so I may not completely understand it yet, but as near as I can tell, my code should be good. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks. String startD = Request["txtStartDate"]; //requesting string from textbox "txtStartDate" String endD = Request["txtEndDate"]; DateTime start = DateTime.Parse(startD); //line that throws the error DateTime end = DateTime.Parse(endD); if (DateTime.Compare(start, end) > 0) { txtStartDate.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow; txtEndDate.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow; Msg = Msg + "\n" + "The end date must be greater than the start date....

    I am trying to implement the jQuery autocomplete custom data and display. Right now I'm using just the regular autocomplete. My problem is converting the json array of json objects to an array of javascript objects. Could someone please point me in the right direction. Here is what I currently have for the standard autocomplete. ArrayList<String> symbols = new ArrayList<String>(); ArrayList<Stock> stockList = new ArrayList<Stock>(); stockList = StockDB.getStocks(); for (Stock s : stockList) { String symbol = s.getSymbol() + ": " + s.getCompanyName(); symbols.add(symbol); } Gson gson = new Gson(); JsonElement syms = gson.toJsonTree(symbols, new TypeToken<List<String>>() {}.getType()); response.setContentType("application/json; charset=UTF-8"); PrintWriter out = response.getWriter(); JsonArray jArray = syms.getAsJsonArray(); out.print(jArray); out.flush(); Stock object has symbol, compan...

    I've been debugging this simple piece of code , and I'm still not getting why while loop is being entered on condition evaluating to false. Here's the code : #include <iostream> unsigned long count = 1; // we assume 2 has been found. unsigned long primeArr[3] = {0}; bool primeArrCanDiv(unsigned long n){ for(unsigned long i = 0; i<count; i++){ if(n%primeArr[i] == 0) return true; } primeArr[count] = n; return false; } int main(){ unsigned long j=3; primeArr[0]=2; while(count<3){ if(!primeArrCanDiv(j)) count++; ++j; } std::cout<<primeArr[count-1]; return 0; } a bit about the code , introduces 2 global var count = 1 and an array primeArr[3]. Now the following part should run till count reaches 3 : while(count<3){ if(!primeArrCanDiv(j)) count++; ++j; } But it runs 2 times more than it sho...

    Imagine you’re building a small solar installation. The naive solution would be grabbing a solar panel from Horror Freight, getting a car battery and AC inverter, and hoping everything works. This is the dumb solution. To get the most out of a solar you need to match the voltage of the solar cell to the voltage of the battery. How do you do that? With [Debasish]’s entry for The Hackaday Prize, an Arduino MPPT Solar Charge Controller. This Maximum Power Point Tracker uses a buck converter to step down the voltage from the solar cell to the voltage of the …read more...

    Close your eyes and think back, far back when you were a wee kid. Remember those colored beads that a child would populate on a small plastic peg board, arranged in some sort of artsy pattern, then ironed to fuse the beads together into a crafty trinket? They were fun for kids but what good are they to us adults nowadays? Well, [Lalya] has shown that they can be used to make a unique and interesting NES Controller. First, the controller’s front panel was laid out on the pegboard, remembering to lay it out in reverse so the melted side …read more...

    It seems almost every day 3D scanning is becoming more and more accessible to the general DIYer. The hardware required is minimal and there are several scanning softwares and workflows to choose from. However, if you have slowly walked around a subject while holding a Kinect and trying to get a good scan, you know this is not an easy task. A quick internet search will result in several DIY scanning setup solutions that have been cobbled together and lack substantial documentation…. until now! [aldricnegrier] is fighting back and has designed and documented a rotary table that will spin at …read more...

    We’re at LayerOne this weekend and one of the talks we were excited about didn’t disappoint. [Jos Weyers] presented Showing Keys in Public — What Could Possibly Go Wrong? The premise is that pictures of keys, in most cases, are as good as the keys themselves. And that pictures of keys keep getting published. [Jos] spoke a bit about new services that offer things like 3D scanning and storage of your key for printing when you get locked out, or apps that ask you to take a picture of your key and they’ll mail you a duplicate. Obviously this isn’t …read more...

    Throughout history, mankind has been at the mercy of the weather. Planning a major outdoor event like a wedding or a naval battle? Better hope for clear skies! Man doesn’t have the ability to change mother nature at will quite yet, but hackers are working on it! Until then, we can measure  the current conditions and predict the weather in the near future. A bit of help from cloud based computer models and global sensing even allows us to model and predict weather patterns days in advance. It’s no surprise that makers, engineers, and hackers love weather projects. We’ve found …read more...

    In the next few years, VR headsets will be everywhere, and everyone will slowly recede into their own little reality that is presented on high-resolution displays right in front of their eyes. One specific group will be left out: eyeglass wearers. VR just doesn’t work with eyeglasses, and a few people in Germany are fixing this problem. They’re creating custom prescription lenses for Google Cardboard, giving anyone with glasses the opportunity to look just a little more hipster. The folks behind this Indiegogo already run a specialty optics shop in Germany. They have the tools to make custom lenses for  …read more...

    One of our tipsters sent in a great video showing how to make knives out of old broken drill bits. It comes from [The Art of Weapons] YouTube channel which is run by a 15 year old from the UK.

    Animenewsnetwork - The rain came down all episode long. It was a constant presence in frame, from shots of the cast wandering in umbrellas and waiting at bus stops, to indoor scenes that nonetheless were lit to emphasize the grey skies above. Characters were caught alone in distant shots, or framed as hemmed in by seats or stationary. Kumiko's face would be positioned in a small corner of the frame, with the rest of the shot given up to dampened scenery and dreary memories....

    Animenewsnetwork - Uh oh. It seems Blood Blockade Battlefront has been too immaculately animated for too long, and Studio Bones needs a breather. What better way to save on the budget, while maintaining entertainment value, than with a low-stakes filler-iffic episode about boxing? Everybody loves fisticuffs, and freeze-framed punches can tell the story as well as fully animated blows when the balance is right. It's a win-win situation!...
