Horseshoe Crabs Are Bled Alive To Create an Unparalleled Biomedical Technology
Quoting the article: "Each year, half a million horseshoe crabs are captured and bled alive" I think this makes them far from endangered although that is quite a lot of crabs to be caught by one company. Good riddance I say! Who wants a giant shelled scorpion spider crawling in our shallow waters anyway?

GameFace: Making a Virtual Reality Android Headset
I think it's great they are trying to tap into a unproven market because I love seeing new technology developed. But I just don't see VR redefining the gamer generation. I quite enjoy gaming without something covering my face. Still, very cool to see the technology developed.

E-Sports Gender Gap: 90+% Male
Women in ESports are still making their mark on the scene. Early on it was just Tossgirl the first female pro to compete in all male leagues for Starcraft one. Along with her coach January coached one of the first Starcraft teams. And now Starcraft 2 is making head way for females in competitive gaming.
"Ladies of the Swarm", http://wiki.teamliquid.net/sta... , is a great tournament run by all women and has a pretty decent prizepool too. While females in competitive gaming is trailing behind there is no lack of involvement. The best interviewers, translators, and hosts for major Starcraft events are run by ladies. They all do a great job too and it has been a pleasure to meet many of them.
Other then this being a slew of statistics, it doesn't really show anything new in the article or attempt to suggest solutions to this "problem." Females, whether gamers or ESports entertainers, get their opportunities as equally as men do. And in fact they are welcomed with open arms from the Starcraft community. And if it means anything, one of the top non-Korean progamers is a female.

From GHacks.net "It is by no means a catch-all security application, but it mitigates many common attack types and forms on the system. "
The review on their website had led me to believe that the best of hackers could still get through EMET security. It will still be exciting to see how quickly the victor can make it into the heavily defended IE.
The Moderately Enthusiastic Programmer
I spend 8 hours a day loving what I code in c++. When I leave work I generally focus on my hobbies like writing news for competitive gaming. If I leave work with a problem unsolved sometimes I'll think it through while I'm driving. Long story short, I love code development at work and couldn't imagine a job without it. That's always been enough for my employers.
Nintendo Could Base Comeback On Improving Peoples' Health
Nothing has given me a better work out then running on that old NES track matt and the one I own is still function. The best part is, when you get tired or can't run fast enough you get on your knees and start smacking the pad with your hands for that extra boost. It's been 20 years now but I'm sure I'll finally beat cheetah this time!
Journal of Cosmology Contributor Sues NASA To Investigate Mars "Donut"
From the article
"If the organism is biological, NASA must publicly acknowledge that the discovery was made by the Petitioner and must ensure that Petitioner appears as rst author on and has nal editorial approval of the rst 6 scientic articles published or submitted for publication by NASA employees which discuss and present this discovery."
I hope this turns into something awesome, but it seems in his claim that he will get credit for the discovery even though NASA discovered the object first. I guess it's deserved if NASA really did overlook an object that proves monumental.
Rovio Denies Knowledge of NSA Access, Angry Birds Website Defaced Anyway
Next we will learn that temple run is a real time simulation of the public running from NSA agents. Just wait till we get to see the real monster hidden in side of the one chasing you when the mask is taken off.
Seriously though, this sucks for Rovio. Someone in the media clearly had an agenda in causing bad publicity for them. Couldn't they have just chosen any app at random and accused them of this. I seriously doubt Rovio is conducting meeting with the NSA on what information they will share.
Blizzard Releases In-House Design Tools To Starcraft Modders
As someone who really wants Starbow(the popular sc1bw/sc2 hybrid) to succeed, there were certain limitations preventing the developers from taking this MOD past beta. Now that they have the tools this could become a real challenger for HoTs(and LotV) when the final chapter is released. Competition for the best modern RTS to play may really force blizzards core design team to step up and make SC2 source the top competitive game. (/wishes)
