11 Striking Images That Show D-Day Landing Sites Then and Now

COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, FRANCE - JUNE 06: U.S. President Barack Obama applauds WWII Veterans during a ceremony at the Normandy American Cemetery on the 70th anniversary of D-Day June 6, 2014 in Colleville-sur-Mer, France. Friday 6th June is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings which saw 156,000 troops from the allied countries including the United Kingdom and the United States join forces to launch an audacious attack on the beaches of Normandy, these assaults are credited with the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany. A series of events commemorating the 70th anniversary are planned for the week with many heads of state travelling to the famous beaches to pay their respects to those who lost their lives.

We need to talk about an injustice

In an engaging and personal talk — with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks — human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.

Ever Wished That Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson Would Return to the Comics Page? Well, He Just Did.

In 1992, when stationed aboard USS Tarawa (LHA-1), I passed the deployment to the Persian Gulf by writing famous people to see if I could get a reply (Navy ships had free postage after 30 days away from homeport). (I used “The Address Book” by Levine [?].) Among the respondents were cartoonists Dik Browne and Bill Watterson. Watterson sent me a drawing, ala Pogo, of Calvin & Hobbs in a swamp boat which Watterson named “Tarawa” on the stern panel along with a nice note. I’ve kept it, and the other replies (392 out of 500 letters sent). The value will never be worth what it meant to me that someone with fame and wealth took the time to personalize a return to a Sailor. Maya Angelou, who just passed, sent an autographed copy of a book of her poetry tabbed to a poem beginning, “Hello young sailor.” Stephen King sent an autographed copy of “The Tommyknockers” inscribed, “There are bad things out there – try not to look like food.” The responses were great, so much so that when Mail Call was held, many of my shipmates put off opening their mail to see what I had in mine – autographed photos of starlets and models being the most appreciated.

11-Year-Old Makes An Unbreakable, Spill-Proof Cup For Her Ailing Grandfather

A few years ago, Lily, the daughter of an inventor, noticed that her grandfather, who has Parkinson’s, had been spilling his drinks. She decided to help him out by creating a more stable cup, which she named the Kangaroo Cup. "We were using hand-moldable plastic at home and then clay at a pottery studio," Lily tells Co.Design. "I could hand those cups right over to my grandpa to use, and it was very easy to see if it was comfortable or not."

How to Negotiate with Someone More Powerful than You

Prepare, prepare, prepare “The most important thing is to be well prepared,” says Weiss. That involves brainstorming in advance creative solutions that will work for both parties. For example, if the other side won’t budge from their price point, one of your proposals could be a longer-term contract that gives them the price they want but guarantees you revenue for a longer period of time. You also want to have data or past precedents at your disposal to help you make your case. If a potential client says they will pay you X for a job, having done your research allows you to counter with, “But the last three people you contracted with similar experience were paid Y.” Preparation gives you the information you need to “to get more of what you want,” says Neale.

The Neuroscience Of Trusting Your Gut

I think this piece gets at some good points, but it presents an overly simplified view of intuition. It would help to clarify the line between gut-feeling decisions informed by past experiences and outcomes (good intuition), and visceral decision-making made without the aid of facts (bad intuition or bias). From an evolutionary perspective, intuition has probably been good for our species. But we now live in an unbelievably complex world where data - rather than biological triggers - should conduct many of our actions. The instincts we developed millennia ago weren't designed to help us navigate the complicated choices we face in business and personal life in the modern world. For example, plenty of people have gut reactions and intuitions that dissuade them from flying. But statistically, it's one of the safest ways to travel. It probably doesn't make sense to trust purely our emotions in cases where we're wrestling with modern decisions.

5 Times Apple Hit Legal Trouble Over Product Names

Time and time again, whenever Apple announces the name of a product, some other company comes out of the woodwork and claims that the name is already trademarked. Usually, the claims are puffed-up attempts to drum up a lawsuit and make money off the tech giant. Apple has seen its fair share of those kinds of lawsuits.

Mathematicians Urge Colleagues To Refuse To Work For The NSA

Beilenson says he “got some letters of support, mostly from the young mathematicians, which was very nice” but otherwise no response from the AMS after writing the letter. The leadership of the American Mathematical Society says it is not planning to deter members from working for the spy agency nor will it stop accepting grants from the NSA, noting that those grants support innocuous research on algebra, number theory, discrete mathematics, probability, and statistics. “Cryptology and classified research are specifically excluded from the grants,” say AMS president David Vogan and executive director Donald McClure in a statement. “The work of [the grant program] is directly in line with the mission of the American Mathematical Society ‘to further the interests of mathematical research and scholarship.’ It is strongly supported by the leadership of the AMS and, we believe, by a majority of the members.”

Virgin Bets On A Google Glass Customer Service Experience

Let’s say you’re one of Virgin’s most valued passengers. (To be clear: by “valued,” I  don’t mean that the red-clad professional Virgins like your smile, I mean they’ve weighed your wallet and found it to their liking.) During the Google Glass trial, a tech-bespectacled Virgin rep would greet you at your limo, confirm that your travel itinerary is up to date, and clue you in on the weather expected for your destination, “all without breaking eye contact.” [Uh huh: From what I’ve seen of the Virgin trial run, that “unbroken” eye contact is compromised by endless fiddling with buttons on the side of the glasses, right in the line of vision of the passenger.] Be that as it may, based on the success of this initiative, Virgin is reported to be now looking to broaden the application.

Apple Echoes Dropbox, WhatsApp, Others With Raft Of New Software Features

- A new native feature on the iOS keyboard called QuickType uses “language models” to predict words before they are typed, with an interface very similar to that of SwiftKey, a predictive keyboard app that has not been able to sell on Apple’s App Store because of the closed ecosystem for iOS. Ironically enough, now that Apple has the QuickType feature, it would allow iOS users to buy and install third-party keyboard apps. - Within iMessage Apple revealed a push-to-talk, and push-to-video feature very similar to push-to-talk features announced by messaging service WhatsApp several months ago, and popularized by the messaging app Voxer. The founders of keyboard app maker SwiftKey said they were “delighted Apple has decided to embrace the importance of opening its platform to third party keyboards.” Without mentioning Apple’s QuickType feature, Jon Reynolds and Ben Medlock added: “Are we going to build SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS 8? Of course we are. We’ve already started.”

Why I'm sending 200 copies of Little Brother to a high-school in Pensacola, FL

My publisher, Tor Books, is sending 200 free copies of the paperback of my novel Little Brother to Booker T Washington High School, because it's the first school where any of my novels has been challenged by the school administration. Little Brother had been selected and approved as the school's summer One School/One Book reading pick, and the school librarian Betsy Woolley had worked with Mary Kate Griffith from the English department to develop an excellent educational supplement for the students to use to launch their critical discussions in the fall. The whole project had been signed off on by the school administration and it was ready to go out to the students when the principal intervened and ordered them to change the title. In an email conversation with Ms Griffith, the principal cited reviews that emphasized the book's positive view of questioning authority, lauding "hacker culture", and discussing sex and sexuality in passing.

Rooting for California Chrome's Triple Crown Win Is Almost Too Easy

California Chrome started to develop “low heels” in his second year, and his farrier tried out a new style of hard-rubber horseshoe that raised them. But rather than gluing them on as designed, he custom-drilled holes into them and nailed them to California Chrome’s hooves in the traditional metal style. That raised the soles slightly farther off the ground — and was the beginning of the horse’s six-win streak that he’s carried into the Triple Crown.

Android vs. The iPhone: It's All About The Cloud

But if you take a closer look at what Apple announced and how it all works, the cloud isn’t really the key feature in iOS or Mac OS X. For Apple, the cloud is a means to an end—and that end is to keep you using and buying new Macs, iPhones and iPads. I couldn’t quite put a finger on it, but what Apple has done with the cloud at WWDC this week struck me as mildly distasteful in a way I found hard to pinpoint.

Three Questions with Beats Designer Robert Brunner | MIT Technology Review

An iPad is a more limited interface, but for a certain number of things it’s perfectly adequate. So for a lot of people who bought computers for e-mail and Web browsing and games, “Oh, I’ll just get this because it’s more mobile, it’s easier,” and so forth. Well, you could see the same kind of thing happening between a phone and a watch. Let’s say with my watch I could easily make phone calls, I could easily get my messages, there’s a certain subset of things that are easier, simpler, and much more mobile, you could make that transition as well. There may be a subset of functionality on the smartphone that a bunch of people buy it for, all of a sudden it moves to the watch, and, great, I don’t have to drag this thing out of my pocket; it’s always on my wrist.

How To Be An Out-Of-The-Box Thinker

When it comes to thinking creatively for business, most people believe you have to be wired a certain way or use a certain side of your brain. I disagree. In fact, I think the more naturally creative you are, the harder time you have focusing on the business side of things (marketing, promotion, sales, etc).

Tech’s toxic political culture: The stealth libertarianism of Silicon Valley bigwigs

Andreessen also creates something of a straw man, structuring his argument against unnamed forces who want to stop innovation, or “slow” tech change. While there are certainly industry sectors (hotels, taxis) that would like to squelch the threat from Andreessen-funded start-ups, most of the social critics who are seriously engaging with the issues Andreessen is addressing don’t believe it is possible or desirable to “stop” innovation. The question is how to respond, politically and socially, to the inequities created by tech innovation and the growing financial inequality that follows in its wake. They’re asking what happens to the people who were making their livings as chauffeurs or cab drivers or truckers when self-driving cars are ubiquitous. What happens to the people working in Amazon warehouses when they become fully automated?

Twitter’s in Trouble. Here’s How It Can Avoid Becoming the Next AOL | Business | WIRED

But Twitter’s popularity with the media and celebrities has become one of the key sources of the site’s current troubles. By now just about every organization that wants to have its voice heard is on Twitter, resulting in a cacophony of noise that does not add up to much. Facebook had that same problem, but it worked really hard to develop a better way of figuring out what users find relevant in the newsfeed. But Twitter has not done that, so now when you go on Twitter all you see is a mish-mash of commentaries that most users do not really care about. The onus is on the you to curate who you follow. Twitter’s inability to provide an effective search function that would allow users to search for relevant tweets has added to the disillusion. Tired of this barrage of badly targeted information and knowing that similar information can be found elsewhere on the Web, users leave, never to be seen again .

Skipping Breakfast May Not Be Bad For Weight Loss After All

So skipping breakfast isn’t without its drawbacks. While the current study does suggest that skipping breakfast may not be so bad for weight loss, it doesn’t address its other effects. But the best advice is probably to do what feels natural for you: If you’re a born breakfast-eater, keep it up, healthily. And if breakfast isn’t your thing, it’s probably fine to skip it. Just be sure to eat smartly in the rest of your meals throughout the day.

5 Companies Building Keyboards for iOS 8

“We’ve been on iOS since 2012, and we have considerable expertise and a great team on the platform already,” continues Verdelis. “We are now making sure we can use the new iOS 8 APIs – ours already works on iOS though. We will ramp up efforts including recruiting the top iOS developers – this hasn’t changed, we are growing our team every month. What it does mean, however, is that our technology can be distributed to a wider audience and for a stronger use-case. We see the announcement as a significant broadening of our target market, in a platform where we already have experience, presence, and following.”

Does 'Orange is the New Black' Make Netflix A One Hit Wonder?

For Netflix, it doesn’t matter how many Emmy nominations a show gets, how harsh or praise worthy the critics are or how many tweets come through. All that matters is how many subscribers sign-up for the service with the sole purpose of watching a given program. No one should kid themselves into thinking Netflix doesn’t have a viewership goal in mind for every one of their original series, and if one reaches that goal, it can consider itself safe for another season on the digital platform. For Netflix, achieving cultural relevancy means far less than the amount of subscriber income sitting in the bank account.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active review - CNET

And that's mostly OK. Samsung never claims that the Active is a durable device, and the fact that the company doesn't skimp on the phone's software and hardware fixin's speaks volumes. Samsung hopes that outdoorsy types will gravitate to the heart-rate monitor, physical navigation buttons, and to the convenience key that pulls up a compass, flashlight, and the camera, but really, these benefit anyone. Like the original S5, this Active can withstand short dips in water, shocks, and dusty landscapes.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick: We’re Doubling Revenue Every Six Months - Digits - WSJ

WSJ : Let’s define the market. There’s very little information right now about the size of the car service market. One report characterized the U.S. market size at $11 billion in revenue, but Uber is obviously global. How do you measure the size of the market? Mr. Kalanick:  When we got this company started (in 2009) we were pitching the seed round and we pulled a bunch of research from this report that showed that San Francisco total spend on taxi and limo was like 120 million bucks. But we’re a very healthy multiple bigger than that right now, just Uber in SF. So it’s not about the market that exists, it’s about the market we’re creating. So what is that vision?… It’s a reflection of our mission to turn ground transportation into a seamless service. Basically make car ownership a thing of the past…If you just looked at San Francisco, the ground transportation market in just San Francisco — where people pay to get in a car and go somewhere, whether they own the car or otherwise — is $22 billion. No wonder we’re several hundred million in size just in SF, and growing faster this year than last year.

NASA Wants Drones and Robo-Subs to Explore Saturn's Moon Titan

Of course, these are just early proposals at this point: The teams behind these Phase I NIAC proposals each receive about $100,000 to conduct a nine-month initial concept study. If this basic feasibility study is successful, teams behind the proposals can apply for further funding, and eventually, the project could become a go. There's certainly no guarantee they'll ever happen, but these are the kind of big-picture, game-changing technology NASA needs to be working on if it wants to truly understand our Solar System.

The Complicated History Of 'Tetris,' Which Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary Today

"I enjoy all the games I create, and I still play 'Tetris' to this day," Pajitnov says. "Maybe I’m not addicted as much as I used to be, but I do make time to play many of the more recent versions just to keep up on new variants, and to make sure my creative input is still there. I’m glad the rest of the world is still hooked on the game, though."

The bringer of life and death

Still more is washed straight off the fields into rivers by heavy rain, or leaches into groundwater. All this causes ecosystems to become overloaded with nitrogen, a process known as "eutrophication". What happens is great blooms of algae, and then bacteria, feed on the surplus nitrogen. In the process, they suck all the oxygen from the water, killing fish and other organisms.

70 Years Ago D-Day Dominated But Didn't Own The News

Most of Congress’s work at the time was devoted to legislation relating to the war effort (like Sugar Rationing), but there was one Congressional matter that cropped up in numerous papers. As reported by the AP in multiple papers on that day, Congress was locked in a battle with the Supreme Court over whether fire insurance should be regulated by state or federal governments. The justices had just ruled that fire insurance was “interstate commerce” and therefore subject to federal regulation. Legislators, who were representing state interests, were fighting to overturn the ruling.

Edge of Tomorrow Is the Best Videogame You Can’t Play | Underwire | WIRED

Not to say the movie is without flaw. The romantic subplot is probably necessary just because, you know, people like having feelings at movies, but still feels tacked on. And the film’s final resolution comes off as a bit too tidy. But those are minor nitpicks, and ultimately everything else about Liman’s film is the epitome of a fun summer popcorn flick. However, where most blockbusters play out like a long race to the Big Finish, Edge of Tomorrow forges a new—and fun—road to get there.

The Real ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Jail Is a Health Hazard Filled With Mold and Human Feces

The NYCLU and law firm Shearman & Sterling filed a class-action lawsuit in 2012 on behalf of current and former prisoners at Riverhead and Yaphank. The suit claims that prisoners housed at the jails live “amidst filth, overflowing sewage, and pervasive mold, rust, and vermin.” Tap water is regularly “brown or yellow in color,” and many inmates forgo drinking it to avoid getting sick.

Snow, Swimming and Seal-Eating: A Polar Bear's View on Life

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) on Friday released the first-ever video shot from the perspective of a polar bear on Arctic sea ice. The video, which was recorded using a video collar device, shows a bear walking on sea ice, swimming, attempting to eat a frozen seal and playing with a potential mate. (Fair warning: The seal portion of the video is quite gory).

This is the fastest photo chat app in the world

Faber won’t disclose the average number of photos each of its users send per day, but says that the number is very high. "When we were designing this, we thought that 100 photos a day shouldn’t be a problem," says Faber. "It’s not heavy like having 100 emails you have to work through." To that effect, Taptalk includes no message list to poke through. To read messages, you tap a small bubble over and over to flip through new messages. It’s a small but important detail, and another place where Taptalk reduces the number of taps it takes to do something. Taptalk’s user interface is undoubtedly confusing for new users, but Faber says it could lend to the app’s virality. "Most people are confused in the beginning, but the way people get on it is usually through a friend who explains how it works," he says. Snapchat’s interface is also intimidating from the outset, but seemingly hasn’t held back its growth at all.

GOG Galaxy takes on Steam with DRM-free games and optional community features

GOG's video positions the new service as a Steam alternative, but Galaxy will also interoperate with Steam.  Rock Paper Shotgun reports that Galaxy "plays nice" with Steam and other services, which could mean that you can compare achievements and see Steam friends from inside Galaxy. The service likely won't start offering the same kinds of AAA games Steam is known for, since everything on GOG is DRM-free, but in a time where so few online gaming platforms exist, Galaxy is a welcome alternative and complement to the leading online games store.

Apple Wants Devs To Love Swift, Its Shiny New Language—But There's A Catch

In some ways Swift is like an official Apple version of the RubyMotion experiment. It’s an easier language that interfaces directly with the Objective-C libraries and Cocoa and Cocoa Touch  frameworks. But that means many—possibly all—Swift users are still going to need to know Objective-C. If that’s the case, why not just stick to what you know? That’s why Pollack doesn’t expect a sudden shift.

The Lost Steve Jobs Tapes

When I listened to this quote again last month, I was struck by something else in it: the combination of adaptability and intuition that proved so critical to Apple's rise. Jobs may have been impulsive at times, but he was always methodical. This kind of nature suited an autodidact with eclectic tastes, empowering him either to obsess impatiently about a pressing problem that had to be dealt with immediately--much like an engineer--or else to let an idea steep and incubate until he got it right. This is why Jobs was so often right on the big picture, even when he got the details wrong. Open salaries was a dumb detail of the Open Corporation, but its core idea, of a workplace where every single person understands the company's goals, is something that most organizations get wrong and that Apple has gotten so right for well over a decade. If Jobs was initially wrong about Apple getting into phones and handheld devices, he was right on about the big idea of the computer at the center of a whirling digital universe. Hence Apple's ability to deliver a great iTunes store after the iPod, even though it was never planned.

Airbnb Risks Government Wrath by Turning Homes Into Restaurants | Business | WIRED

Whether Airbnb dinner parties really have the potential upend the restaurant industry is far from certain. Other startups have tried to do “dinner sharing” with limited success. But none of those have the scale or the name-recognition of an Airbnb, which is why any move by the company into new markets is worth watching. Airbnb is among a handful of companies that really has managed to upset the seemingly natural order of city economies. Like Uber with taxis, Airbnb found a powerful way to harness the internet to show there was a different way of getting a room, a way that a lot of people have decided is better than the old way.

The Future Of Driving: Cameras All Over Your Car

The biggest advantage is the benefit of more perspective while driving. A camera would deepen your awareness of the traffic flow around you. It would have a wider scope than a side-view mirror, and it would reduce the car's blind spot. The screen could be placed in the door, near where you'd expect a side-mirror view to be, or it could be placed in the center console with the rearview image feed. An augmented-reality app, Estl ponders, could even overlay real-time information on the video, and tell you, say, how fast a car approaching from behind is going. The app could be programmed to emit a warning beep if you hit your turn signal to change lanes when the camera detects another car in the way. (Eventually, the technology could also be folded into driverless cars .)
