How Reporters Pulled Off the Panama Papers, the Biggest Leak in Whistleblower History

But beyond those revelations—and there will likely be more as the reporting around the Panama Papers continues—the leak represents an unprecedented story in itself: How an anonymous whistleblower was able to spirit out and surreptitiously send journalists a gargantuan collection of files, which were then analyzed by more than 400 reporters in secret over more than a year before a coordinated effort to go public.

My wish: To launch a new era of openness in business

Anonymous companies protect corrupt individuals – from notorious drug cartel leaders to nefarious arms dealers – behind a shroud of mystery that makes it almost impossible to find and hold them responsible. But anti-corruption activist Charmian Gooch hopes to change all that. At TED2014, she shares her brave TED Prize wish: to know who owns and controls companies, to change the law, and to launch a new era of openness in business.

"We can create a world where there's a real deterrent to violating the rights of another human being," she says.

The Walking Dead: Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Scott Gimple's 13 Season 7 Teases - IGN

Carol and Morgan's respective evolutions, both separate and influencing each other, have been huge talking points of Season 7. When asked to talk about where Carol currently stands, Gimple said, "She killed a lot of people in episode 2. At the end of that episode, she sat on a stoop and cried. That actually was the start of this weight that she was feeling. ... She had reached a point where she was actually comfortable with dying. She has a road to go down and she wants to be alone. That's what that character wants, that's what that character's going after. It will be interesting to see if she gets what she wants, and if she can live with that."

100 Portraits That Tell The Stories Of People Underrepresented In Tech

When most people conjure a vision of "techies," it does not include stories that begin like these. Photographer Helena Price borrowed the loaded, somewhat derogatory term for an art project that highlights 100 designers, engineers, and product managers—including those quoted above—who don’t fit into the stereotypical tech mold. Techies , a collection of portraits and interviews that Price published today, aims to tell an oral history of the tech industry from the perspective of people who are underrepresented inside of it. "For people who are outside of the industry looking in, I want them to know that there are people who come from hardship; they aren’t all Ivy League wealthy young boys," she says, "It’s a mix of people who are here, and they’re passionate about building stuff." For others who work in tech, she says, "If you decide that diversity is important, here are the things that you need to know about and solve for."

Nuclear Power Is Too Safe to Save the World From Climate Change

These disasters were the result of a meltdown, which occurs when something impedes a reactor’s ability to cool the fuel. The US, where nearly 20 percent of electricity comes from 99 nuclear plants, uses uranium. Older reactors—which is every reactor in the US, including Watts Bar Unit 2—use electric pumps to move water through the system. The Fukushima disaster showed what happens it you have pumps but no power to use them. Newer generations rely on gravity instead, draining cooling water from elevated storage tanks to send it through the reactor core.

This is the Tesla Model 3, coming in 2017 for $35,000

At the unveiling of the Model 3 this evening at the company's design studio in Hawthorne, California, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the car will deliver at least 215 miles of range beginning at just $35,000 — that's a bold claim, and an important one for Tesla to meet. Musk is "fairly confident" that deliveries will begin by the end of 2017, and "you will not be able to buy a better car for $35,000, even with no options." And it will be one of the safest cars in the world, according to Musk.

Researchers Just Discovered a New State of Matter

Normally, electrons in a magnetic field will align themselves so that as the material’s temperature approaches absolute zero, the electron poles will eventually face the same direction. Quantum spin liquids throw all of that out the window with the presence of Majorana fermions, which occur when electrons in a quantum spin state literally break apart. This creates strange patterns so hard to predict that, until this experiment, scientists weren’t even sure just what those patterns might look like.

Epic Mural Spanning 50 Buildings Is Only Fully Visible From One Spot

Manshiyat Nasr is famous for its “Garbage City” slum, where residents have created what amounts to a highly efficient human-powered recycling system. Every day residents collect garbage from around the city and bring it back to Manshiyat Nasr to be sorted by families who often specialize in a type of trash, be it paper, plastic, cans, or glass. The recyclables are then sold, creating a self-sustaining economic model for the community. From the outside, Manshiyat Nasr looks like a landfill, covered in the stuff no one else wants. When el Seed began thinking about painting a mural in this neighborhood years ago, this was his initial perception. He figured at the very least he’d bring something beautiful to community accustomed to squalor. Then he visited the city a year ago and saw something completely different. “I was wrong idea about the people, and wrong about the place,” he says. “They don’t live in the garbage, they live from the garbage, which is something totally different.”

Dark Souls 3 Review - IGN

Weapon arts also make shields more fun to use by giving them more variety. Some shields lack the parry ability, using the same command to instead quickly perform your right-hand weapon’s skill without the need to manually two-hand it. Some shields are capable of shield-bashing attacks, too – yes, this means you can dual-wield greatshields. In fact, you can dual-wield just about any combination of weapon with complete right and left-handed movesets, which makes the opportunities for awesome and bizarre builds seem nearly endless. That’s not even counting boss weapons, which come with unique weapon skills that, paired with Dark Souls 3’s fantastic collection of new and returning armor sets, allow you to not just look like your favorite characters and bosses, but perform their signature attacks as well.

24 Sure, this $5,000 24-karat gold NES seems totally reasonable

The time that Tony Fadell sold me a container of hummus.

I am a home automation nut. When I arrive home my lights turn on. In lieu of motion detecting lights, I have a Z-wave motion detector that notifies my Revolv when there is motion on any side of our home and turns on the appropriate lights. Although I do set a home alarm, there is really no more effective vacation security than the programatic turning on, dimming, and turning off of lights in a manner that would indicate that people are home. After buying my Revolv I put my outdoor landscaping light on it and threw away the old timer. Now at Sunset my landscape lighting turns on. Holiday lighting does the same. It’s magical.

Mass Effect Andromeda Gameplay Leaked - IGN

According to forum user Taker34, the footage was taken from a "video/reel on a website of a certain developer who is currently working on Andromeda." Additionally, NeoGAF user shinobi602 chimed in to note the footage is from a "late 2014 build" and "doesn't look like this now."

Toronto Blame Pedestrian Fashion Choices for Crashes

Pedestrian shaming has long been a way for cities to prioritize cars over people, from the invention of jaywalking to blaming walkers for their smartphone use. In Toronto, an ad campaign telling pedestrians that their clothes make them more likely to get hit by cars is getting serious backlash—and rightly so.

Wall Street Considers Blockchain For Tracking Trades On $2 Trillion "Repo" Market

The repo market effectively allows financial institutions to receive short-term loans from each other by selling securities and agreeing to repurchase them on a set date. While trillions of dollars pass through the market every day, the number of transactions is small compared to, say, the stock market, making it a more manageable test case, says Murray Pozmanter, managing director and general manager in charge of the DTCC’s systematically important financial market utility business.

Behind the Panama Papers: How the Massive Document Leak Came to Be

It could be that U.S. publications simply aren’t that interested in the Panama Papers database because it doesn’t implicate any high-ranking officials. So far, there haven’t been any bombshells about U.S. involvement, although the online editor of Suddeutsche Zeitung suggested in a tweet on Sunday that more information is coming soon.

Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Bell Get Handsy With Each Other

Generally when we do Google Autocomplete interviews , there’s just one person responding to the things people ask the search engine about them. But for the latest installment, we got a twofer: Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Bell, stars of The Boss . The pair gamely answered lots of questions about themselves, but also got a little handsy. “We do this in the movie, so it’s like no big thing at this point,” Bell says. Check out that gem of a moment—and find out which of them has the better vocal range—in the video above.

Amazon takes on PayPal and others with launch of Amazon Payments partner program

With the new Global Partner program, however, the goal is to offer an expanded set of services to e-commerce platform providers themselves, instead of just individuals merchants. At launch, a number of partners have agreed to integrate with Amazon Payments, and then offer that option to their own merchants and sellers, including PrestaShop, Shopify, and Future Shop, for example.

Google removes Taliban app from its Play Store

ISIS also has its own Android app , which doesn’t appear to have been removed from the Play Store just yet. Perhaps this is because the ISIS app, Alrawi, is a messaging platform, so it’s technically not broadcasting hate speech or propaganda in the same manner as the Taliban’s news app.

Why Tribeca Film Institute Is Doing Screenings In Prison

The evening’s screening—Tribeca does two every month—would also serve as an on-ramp to other educational initiatives in the prison; several men in the audience had come to early screenings where they learned about a higher education program in the prison offered through John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Before the screening began, Alejo Rodriguez, one of the three facilitators for the evening, asked how many of the men had been to prior screenings. Roughly two thirds raised their hands; the rest were new. Rodriguez welcomed them and told them they were in for a powerful film—about the 2012 shooting death of unarmed black teen Jordan Davis by a white vigilante—and discussion. "Those who know, know. Those who don’t know, ride with us, man," he said.

Real users don't care about Apple Pay and contactless payments

Mobile payments are likely still trudging towards the mainstream, but don’t believe the hype – it’s not been widely adopted by users from all we can tell, and has seen particularly lackluster take-up in the UK where the option is available. Contactless payment cards are increasingly used for transactions, however. TfL saw an overall rise in contactless payments on its network – to over 25 percent of all journeys – but the huge majority were the swiping of a card, not a phone.

Drone makers form their own political lobbying group

The move represents a split of sorts. Companies like 3D Robotics and DJI helped form an earlier group, the Small UAV Coalition, but jumped ship before kickstarting this new organization. This doesn't mean that they were upset with the Coalition's direction, but it does suggest that they wanted more direct representation of their hopes and fears.

48 The Internet Has Been Downgraded to 'internet'

The AP Stylebook is in some ways the go-to resource for media outlets, colleges, and students around the world. Depending on the publication or a professor's request, writers are asked to write in a particular style. For years, they've been typing out Internet. Starting in June, they'll be in violation of the style and therefore, need to change up how they mention "internet" in stories.

9.7-Inch iPad Pro Nearly Impossible to Repair

Apple returned to its roots with the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro , but the tablet hasn't come very far in terms of repairability. The slate scored a measly two-out-of-10 from teardown experts iFixit, who warned DIY technicians not to try this at home, citing difficult-to-replace parts and "gobs of adhesive."
