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

    I’m Mary Woolley, President and CEO of Research!America (@ResearchAmerica), a nonprofit advocacy alliance committed to making research to improve health a higher national priority. Each electoral cycle, Research!America and partner organizations launch a national voter education initiative called “Ask Your Candidates! Is Medical Research Progress a Priority?” (www.askyourcandidates.org) which calls on congressional candidates to share their views on government policies and support for medical innovation conducted in both the public and private sectors. So far, we have received more than 150 statements from candidates with different viewpoints on federal support for research. Sequestration, the across-the-board budget cuts enacted last year, dramatically reduced funding for federal agencies including the National Institutes of Health, jeopardizing innovative studies to find new treatments for deadly disease.

    Hey Reddit, I'm actually a grandson of Elgen Long, long time researcher of Amelia Earhart and also known to be the "father" of the crash and sink theory. I've been exposed to the argument over this piece of evidence for fragment 2-2-V-1 for many years. There's a big problem with the argument that it belongs to Earhart's plane. One of the original engineers on the Lockheed 10, Edward Werner, was actually part of a research panel that determined in 1992 there was no way it could have come from Earhart's plane. This was detailed in many press articles, including the LA Times and Oakland Tribune. He was also quoted in the original press release that it "was ridiculous" to think it came from Earhart's plane and he agreed with the panel completely. Here's why fragment 2-2-V-...

    ewhac writes: "I'm probably going to deeply deeply regret this, but every time a story appears here mentioning systemd, a 700-comment thread of back-and-forth bickering breaks out which is about as informative as an old Bud Light commercial, and I don't really learn anything new about the subject. My gut reaction to systemd is (currently) a negative one, and it's very easy to find screeds decrying systemd on the net. However, said screeds haven't been enough to prevent its adoption by several distros, which leads me to suspect that maybe there's something worthwhile there that I haven't discovered yet. So I thought it might be instructive to turn the question around and ask the membership about what makes systemd good. However, before you stab at the "Post" button, there are some rules...

    HughPickens.com writes We know that about 10 million more people have insurance coverage this year as a result of the Affordable Care Act but until now it has been difficult to say much about who was getting that Obamacare coverage — where they live, their age, their income and other such details. Now Kevin Quealy and Margot Sanger-Katz report in the NYT that a new data set is providing a clearer picture of which people gained health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The data is the output of a statistical model based on a large survey of adults and shows that the law has done something rather unusual in the American economy this century: It has pushed back against inequality, essentially redistributing income — in the form of health insurance or insurance subsidies — to many of the groups that have fared poorly over the last few decades. The biggest winners from the law include people between the ages of 18 and 34; blacks; Hispanics; and people who live in rur...

    An anonymous reader writes Despite the death of the EU Data Retention Directive in April, and despite the country having taken six years to even begin to obey the ruling, the Swedish government, via its telecoms regulator, has forced ISPs to continue retaining customer data for law enforcement purposes. Now the last ISP retrenching on the issue has been told that it must comply with the edict or face a fine of five million krona ($680,000). While providers all over Europe have rejoiced in not being obliged any longer to provide infrastructure to retain six months of data per customer, Sweden and the United Kingdom alone have insisted on retaining the ruling — particularly surprising in the case of Sweden, since it took six years to begin adhering to the Data Retention Directive after it was made law in 2006. Britain's Data Retention and Investigatory Powers bill, rushed through in July, actually widens the scope of the original EU order. ...

Some of the plants involved are Creys-Malville en Bugey in the southeast, Blayais in the southwest, Cattenom en Chooz in the northeast, Gravelines in the north, and Nogent-sur-Seine, close to Paris. It is forbidden to fly over these sites on altitudes less than 1 km in a 5 km radius. According to a spokesman of the state electric company that runs the facilities (EDF), there was no danger to the security and production of the plants. However these incidents will likely bring nuclear safety concerns back into the spotlight. ...

    An anonymous reader writes Amelia Earhart disappeared in 1937, but scientists may have now uncovered where she ended up. Researchers have identified a piece of aluminum, which washed up on a remote Pacific island, as dated to the correct time period and consistent with the design of Earhart's Lockheed Electra. From the article: "The warped piece of metal was uncovered on a 1991 voyage to the island of Nikumaroro in the Republic of Kiribati by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), which has spent millions of dollars searching for Earhart's plane in a project that has involved hundreds of people. 'We don't understand how that patch got busted out of (the plane) and ended up on the island where we found it, but we have the patch, we have a piece of Earhart's aircraft,' TIGHAR executive director Ric Gillespie said." ...

    vinces99 writes A new study shows that the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide that contributed to the end of the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago did not occur gradually but rather was characterized by three abrupt pulses. Scientists are not sure what caused these abrupt increases, during which carbon dioxide levels rose about 10 to 15 parts per million – or about 5 percent per episode – during a span of one to two centuries. It likely was a combination of factors, they say, including ocean circulation, changing wind patterns and terrestrial processes. The finding, published Oct. 30 in the journal Nature, casts new light on the mechanisms that take the Earth in and out of ice ages. "We used to think that naturally occurring changes in carbon dioxide took place relatively slowly over the 10,000 years it took to move out of the last ice age," said lead author Shaun Marcott, who did the work as a postdoctoral researcher at Oregon State University and is now at the U...

    An anonymous reader writes Google today announced plans to disable fallback to version 3 of the SSL protocol in Chrome 39, and remove SSL 3.0 completely in Chrome 40. The decision follows the company's disclosure of a serious security vulnerability in SSL 3.0 on October 14, the attack for which it dubbed Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption (POODLE). Following Mozilla's decision on the same day to disable SSL 3.0 by default in Firefox 34, which will be released on November 25, Google has laid out its plans for Chrome. This was expected, given that Google Security Team's Bodo Möller stated at the time: "In the coming months, we hope to remove support for SSL 3.0 completely from our client products." ...

    Most boys of the Pokot tribe in Alale, Kenya, are unable to attend school due to their daily duty of cattle herding and their role as â??warriorsâ? to protect against cattle rustlers of the neighboring Turkana tribe. Dinah Hellen Chebitwey, a 52-year-old early childhood education officer, teaches Pokot boys the game of archery in an attempt to transform their skills into a means of peace-building. Chebitwey hopes to engage her counterpart in Turkana to create a program where boys from two rival communities can compete in the game of archery to deepen exchanges and learn to embrace peace. --By European Pressphoto Agency

    Seven months on, loved ones of passengers on a missing Malaysian airliner derive what comfort they can going forward from whatâ??s left behind. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 mostly Chinese people on board, disappeared on March 8 about an hour into a routine journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the worldâ??s greatest aviation mystery. More than two dozen countries have been involved in the air, sea and underwater search for the Boeing 777 but months of sorties failed to turn up any trace - even after narrowing the search area to the southern Indian Ocean - long after batteries on the black box voice and data recorders had gone flat.

    This is a special horror finale that was written by My Sister when she was a damn kid! Mother found the story and sent it to me and I stole it from Bonnie, so eat it, sis!! No more horror ever, horror is over. Go back to jokes, idiot!!!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    ONE MORE HORROR!!!! Then we can go back to the original horror of weirdness and stuff til it's all over. ALL OVER!!!! Ah! I'm already working on trying to sell ideas to publishers but it's so hard. I wish they would just trust someone they've never worked with and give me a lot of money to do the thing I want to do. It's not fair!!!!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    Really wanted to channel in my Old "I Just Discovered Johnny The Homicidal Maniac" Phase of drawing for this one. Not detailed enough, but dammit I tried with the head and eyes and such. Well! Anywho! More next week.PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    THE HORROR CONTINUES!!!! We got two more good weeks of frights, boils, ghouls, and every worm in between. I got nothing more to add after last week's announcement other than I love y'all and hope you continue to follow my work. I'm gonna work on a better main site for that kind of news. PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    AAA! This is creepy!! But enough Halloween fun, I got some news to share with you. Gunshow will stop at the end of the year. If this seems sudden, it is because I just decided it a couple of days ago. Here is a longer post about what why when where etc. But right now, we are still in the scary horror mode and have two more months to have fun. So let's have a lot of it (fun).PATREON! + BACK!  ...

    The HORROR!!! Continues.... This one is called "Splinter" but there is another movie called "Splinter" that was made in 2008 near where I used to live in Oklahoma City. They even had a premiere at the Art Gallery downtown for it. It's a really decent body horror/monster flick. Look it up however you can!! BOO!!!! SEE YOU THURSDAY!PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!...

    All this horror reminds me of a really good student film from earlier this year that is worth a watch: "There's a Man in the Woods."PATREON! + BACK!  PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

    Tycho: They seem to corral their mean Australians at the border, just like they do in Canada, and everyone else is generally so nice here that my first inclination is that they are fucking with me.  I’m heading over to PAX Aus in a second, after I link the comic and go HAM on this muesli.  Oh!  Actually, wait a second.  There was something else. There is a kind of multifloor, indie development cult in Melbourne called “The Arcade” that I had to find yesterday by looking at a map, and then remembering how to get there.  Being without a…...

    New Comic: Underworld, Part Three

    Tycho: We got to Australia about the time a PST person would normally wake up, but then we tried to do the sorta prescribed thing where you stay awake all day to get your head straight for the new place.  I don’t know if it worked all the way.  Everything seems to be contained within a parenthetical which denotes its contents are not to be trusted. I guess I did spend almost the entire day absorbing We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (Vol. 5), a prodigious volume of Philip K. Dick stories which can double ably as a bludgeon.  Philip K. Dick is unique among authors in that a…...

    New Comic: Underworld, Part Two

    Tycho: Here in about seven hours or so we’ll be on our way to the fabled burg of Mael-Byn, or at any rate we’ll fly to the place we will fly to Melbourne from, that extra little kick this finite universe must always get in.  It’s the first time we won’t be home for Halloween, but I know that some of our number fully intend to bring a measure of it there, at such volume and to such an extent that we may discover what laws prohibit wholesale lolly importation.    In any case, those two things achieved a massive scale in our minds and I found it difficult to…...

    New Comic: Underworld, Part One

    Tycho: As is our way, we have delivered the most recently donated Child’s Play Strip at or near the buzzer.  I think the buzzer might already have gone off actually, but we ended up doing it for people who are as busy as we are, if not busier.  It ended up being a crossover with a comic they also do in addition to everything else.  Here’s theirs, and here’s ours.  Many thanks to Steve and Ash for letting us play around with their toys. I love Dragon Age; one of my favorite “work for hire” projects was making an item for the sequel.  Which ended…...

    New Comic: Child’s Play Strip: MegaCynics

    Gabe: I play Destiny every day. This past weekend I even started an Alt character. Now I have my level 27 Hunter as well as a level 5 Titan. Whenever I have a bit of free time I am in there playing. Kids taking a bath? I can do a story mission. 30 minutes until I have to leave for work? I can knock out a bounty or two. The Seahawks are playing? I’ll just play Destiny on my Vita all afternoon while we watch the game. Playing games is my job and so kara sees this a lot. I’m always playing something but even she commented the other day that I seem a little obsessed with Destiny. I can’t deny it…...

    Tycho: The last time I played Fantasia: Music Evolved, my apparatus was not tuned for assessment. Or, and we should entertain this also I suppose, I was optimally tuned.  Alcohol is not only good for sanitizing wounds it turns out.  I have a firm policy as regards this elixir, and I have maintained it in an unswerving fashion: I only drink the stuff if its there.  Or, if I can get it within the space of an hour.  Or if I have to make it from the rinds that have collected under the bag in the garbage can.  So if you are somewhere and motherfuckers just want to give it to you,…...

    In the past, Call of Duty development was principally handled by Infinity Ward and Treyarch. I've always preferred the latter, who was able to weave their signature "Nazi Zombies" mode into their games (though I am liking IW's new alien angle), which has blown up to become one of the biggest reasons to pick up a new Call of Duty game for many fans. It seems as if Activision wants a little more pizzazz in Sledgehammer Games' first entry, Advanced Warfare, as a new trailer has been leaked showing off zombie footage with the future warfare gear in tow. The trailer was revealed on Reddit and subsequently removed, but you can go to the following link to watch an uploaded version. I hope this is a full-on mode ...

    Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's free, limited-time mini event Bloody Harvest Celebration just launched a couple hours ago. The teaser image has several pumpkin-flavored pieces of art, but little extra information. I jumped into the shoes of my trusty Enforcer to check out what is new. To access this content, you will need to go to Regolith Range. It does not have its own Fast Travel station, but it can be reached by fast traveling to Serenity's Waste (the first area Vault Hunters explore upon landing on Elpis) and taking a vehicle to one of the two entrances. I recommend the exit in the southeastern part of Serenity's Waste, because it leads to the part of Regolith Range closer to Undeadlift, the local boss fight. ...

    Today over at the PlayStation Blog, Sony Xdev Studio Europe detailed some new additions to Housemarque's PlayStation 4 shoot-'em-up, Resogun. (Photo mode incoming!)

"The Vita version is coming and is looking, sounding and most importantly, playing great," SCEE executive producer James Hawkins said in response to an inquiry about the possibility of port. Well, that's a hell of a way to announce something. Very nonchalant, Sony. We've reached out to Housemarque for further comment. Resogun celebrates Hal...

    Well you certainly could have seen this one coming. During an interview with Pete Hines, the Vice President of Bethesda, CNET confirmed that the long elusive and troubled development of Prey 2 has come to an end. Taking place at PAX AUS,  Hines opened up about the development of the game, citing difficulties in its creative development."It was game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be - we never saw a path to success if we finished it," Hines said.  "It wasn't up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it. It's no longer in development. That wasn't an easy decision, but it's one that won't surprise many folks given that we hadn't been talking about it ...

    Last year, Borderlands 2 kicked off its Headhunter series of DLC with T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest, a Halloween-themed mini-expansion that had players meeting up with zombie T.K. Baha and shooting a lot of pumpkins. It looks like 2K is continuing the tradition with this year's Bloody Harvest Celebration, but rather than paid DLC introducing new areas, this one is a limited time event and is available right now as a free update. It alters the area Regolith Range to feature pumpkin-headed enemies, including a replacement of the boss Deadlift with Undeadlift. Get it? Playing through and can net players an exclusive gun called the Jack-o'-Cannon. It's an interesting take on DLC, especially for a series that gets criticize...

    War, what is it good for? For starters, it makes for easy entertainment in fiction. With the rise of war games over the last two decades, it's common to see these experiences as nothing but an over-the-top spectacle to show off explosions and the might of the military. But in recent years, we've begun to see more games that pay attention to the philosophical and existential conflicts related to war. One of my favorite last-gen games, Spec Ops: The Line, subverted expectations by reintroducing the horror and dread that war imparts on those it touches. And with last summer's Valiant Hearts, which told the stories of men and women during World War I, I'm glad we're seeing more of the human and emotional side of armed conflict. Back at PAX Prime 2014, I had the opportunity to experience another such title called This War of Mine. Meeting with the developers at 11 bit studios, I got to chat about the origins and intentions they have with their sur...

    What timing. I'm wrapping up my replay of Monolith's hobo smash-'em-up / survival horror game Condemned: Criminal Origins and while it's not nearly as scary as I remember it being in 2005, it's sure worth $3.73.

You quickly stumble out and begin your search, only to find your surroundings unnaturally covered in a thick fog, with snow strangely falling out of season; as you venture forward you make out houses, sidewalks and trees. Its a town. You remark how unnaturally quiet it is, then continue on, lead by what appears to be your daughter wandering ahead in the distance. She leads you to an alley where you find blood and entrails strewn all over the place; things unnaturally get dark; you light a match and continue further into this apparent labyrinth of conjoined alleys."...

Father of 2014 candidate, Ryan Bowen, created this life-size Sunder BattleMech costume from MechWarrior for his kid -- i.e. himself -- to wear.  It's pretty awesome-looking, but may I make a suggestion for the costume, Ryan?

For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere. But somewhere along the way, somebody got i

    With the Drools and jBPM (KIE) 6 series came a new workbench, with the promise of eventual end user extensibility. I finally have some teaser videos to show this working and what's in store. Make sure you select 1080p and go full screen to see them at their best. What you seen in these videos is the same workbench available on the Drools video's page. Once this stuff is released you'll be able to extend an existing Drools or JBPM (KIE) installation or make a new one from scratch that doesn't have Drools or jBPM in it - i.e. the workbench and it's extension stuff is available standalone, and you get to chose which plugins you do or don't want....

    I went through the video by Bjarne Stroustrup where he explains why to avoid Linked Lists. Basically, when memory is dynamically allocated using pointers, there are more number of cache misses which reduces the performance. But, if the same thing is applied to Non-Linear Data Structures like trees and graphs, does the same thing hold true? Because, in trees also we have two pointers for each node and again there will be random movements of the pointers leading to cache misses. But, trees have been proved to perform better than linear data structures. Of course, trees can be implemented using arrays as well but again there is a huge consumption of memory. My question is: Is dynamic memory allocation good or not?...

In the end I am only interested in the 100 smallest results (not necessarily 100, but for sure much smaller than my total number of calculated values, m*n in the below code). const int L = 100; int i_list[L]; int j_list[L]; double value_list[L]; for (int i=0;i<m;i++){ for (int j=0;j<n;j++){ double x = doSomeCalculations(i,j); insertTheValueAndIndices(i,j,x,i_list,j_list,value_list); } } After completion, value_list should contain the 100 smallest values (increasing order) and i_list / j_list the corresponding indices.
