top Fujitsu Psychology Tool Profiles Users At Risk of Cyberattacks
We used to have a receptionist who would install pretty much anything from anywhere. Animated dinosaur cursors? Bring 'em on. A game? Make it so. She'd click any link, any button, anywhere.
Periodically it was just easier to wipe her machine, re-install from an image, and then let her destroy it again.
"For example, the researchers found that users who are more comfortable taking risks are also more susceptible to virus infections"
That also applies to real life and STDs. In that case anyone sleeping with your receptionist should use a lot of latex protection.,
top Writers Say They Feel Censored By Surveillance
For example, if I wanted to see most recent documents, and I had appropriate workstations available, in about 10-15 minutes, if I though you were worthy of a deep search, by looking at date stamps and sector sparing tables for las sectors pared, and which files they are attributed to, I could likely find everything that changed on the disk from 5 days before you booked the ticket, up to now.
Even if things are encrypted, that's information, and there are exposed timestamps that could tell me if I should copy/confiscate for further examination, and/or find something incriminating to hold you personally on, or hold you on the suspicion of having done.

top Scientists Say the Future Looks Bleak For Our Bones
Use multi-joint barbell exercises like squats and deadlifts. They build bone density and stave off the effects of osteoporosis.
Or just drink some milk for the calcium and go for long walks when you're in your teenage years (especially for females), and of course later as well.
You could add some wrist and ankle weights to enhance the effect, oh, and get some sun for the vitamin D.
Our bones don't have to be as strong as our ancestors were, they just have to be strong enough to get us through our lifetimes without breaking down.
top "Team America" Gets Post-Hack Yanking At Alamo Drafthouse, Too
In all seriousness, though, I think Sony ought to release the movie and I think everyone who believes in free speech ought to buy a ticket, whether they see it or not. Let's turn this movie into a blockbuster! That's the American thing to do! Well, at least back when Americans acted like Americans.
You've got to be joking! Everyone buys a ticket and gives a huge profit to Sony and Fox?
Fuck that, I don't think so.

top Shale: Good For Gas, Oil...and Nuclear Waste Disposal?
Most of the "waste" from pressurized water reactors still has about 97% of its extractable energy left in it. It could fairly easily be reprocessed and reused in a PWR again, or used almost as-is in the future generation IV design fast neutron reactors.
The reason most used fuel is not reprocessed now, apart from the NIMBY complaints about the processing plants, is that "virgin" fuel is so cheap and abundant that the small extra cost is not deemed to be worth it.
top How Intel and Micron May Finally Kill the Hard Disk Drive
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't SSD's have a point where they put on too many write's per bit?
Tech Reportchecked a bunch of SSDs for write durability and virtually all of them made it to 600 terabytes of data writes or better.
For an ordinary desktop user, write durability is not a problem. Now what about storage durability? With 3 bits per cell, how long before the data fades?
top Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"
Only because most of the world lives under socialist regimes disguised as democracy, whether it's the dirty boot heels of dear leader kim, or the 'soft', stagnant, and effeminate, culture that's been grafted onto scandinavia.
As opposed to America where you're living under fascist regimes, state and federal, disguised as democracy.
top Study Shows How Humans Can Echolocate
I wonder if some sort of artificial pulse generator would be an improvement, rather than producing the clicks yourself.
You'd be guaranteed repeatability and might be able to shape the pulses in order to get a better result. Would differently formed clicks work better at different ranges or with different surfaces?
top Study Shows How Humans Can Echolocate
I do something like this when I'm in the bathroom at work.
I can literally turn on a faucet here without touching the temperature of the water and the instant the water starts coming out warm I can hear the sound difference.
It's like the sound gets more "noisy" and less "linear" when it's hot water coming out. I can even tell as it's warming up since the pitch changes as well then holds steady at full-hot.
Anyone else do this? I'm starting to wonder if I'm alone here.
It's more likely a change in the physical dimensions of the pipe with temperature, rather than anything to do with the density of water. The pipe expands and its resonant frequency decreases.
top "Ambulance Drone" Prototype Unveiled In Holland
Here in the Netherlands the problem is not in getting an AED on the site, but to find someone who can apply it. There are many people trained in using AED's and we here in the Netherlands possibly have the highest density of AED's, and although there is an elobrate system to call trained people to a person with a cardiac arrest, the problem is still in getting enough volunteers to join in. It is no use to have an AED within 200 meters from every house, if you don't have people who can apply them. AED's are not difficult to use, but in a case of emergencie, you need someone who can keep his/her head calm and follow the instructions.
The defibrillators I've seen give audio instructions plus have clear illustrations of how to use them. Unless the bystanders are REALLY stupid, it shouldn't be a problem
top FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.
Right, that makes all the difference, because this is perfectly reasonable:
>We've discovered some counterfeit parts in your car.
-Oh, really? Well, I'm going to drive over to the dealership take that up with them.
>We've already handled the problem. We crushed your car into a cube.
>You have 15 seconds to move your cube.
As I understand it they're not bricking the device, they're bricking the OS's ability to use the device. As a result the customer will take it back to the person who supplied it. They're the ones who will be up for the cost.

top How 3D Printers Went Mainstream After Decades In Obscurity
The solution to "can't manufacture stuff at home" is inventing cheaper manufacturing tools. I don't think we'll see replicators any time soon, but there's no reason why, for example, plumbers shouldn't be able to print plastic parts for dishwashers on-the-fly or in the shop rather than waiting for it to be delivered.
It will be better to order the part from a 3D copy shop which can afford better equipment and processes, and have sufficient volume to justify the expense.
top New MRI Studies Show SSRIs Bring Rapid Changes to Brain Function
SSRIs are also the preferred treatment for PMDD and in small doses, about 5% of the usual dose for depression.
In this application it also works almost immediately, no waiting 6 weeks for something to happen. The original article I saw speculated that it affects the amount of GABA in the brain.
top Ask Slashdot: What Old Technology Can't You Give Up?
. . . and my daily-use TV is a widescreen, high-definition tube . It works great! Cost me only $40! And at 126lb, no one is going to steal it. In fairness, it fits the built-in TV cabinet perfectly and at the time a similarly-sized LCD model was close to $600, so it made sense to go with the tube.
With the massive power savings you could get by replacing this old junker, you could pay for a new flat screen in a few years. However you'd have to make sure it had the inputs to talk to your old signal sources. I've seen some new TVs with HDMI inputs only.

It's not nothing. It's a glimmer of hope for us here in Australia, that that piece of shit Murdoch could eventually lose his near monopoly in Australian newspapers - and, therefore, a significant part of his ability to manipulate the government. And not before time.
With our luck, he'd probably sell the papers to Gina Rinehart.

1 pressure cooker
1 5-lb. rock
Pressure cook the meat till it slips from the bone (about 2 hours) let cool, discard the fish and eat the rock.
I've never tried it, but I've heard they can be OK eating if prepared correctly. The recommendation I heard was to skin and fillet the fish, and age it in a freezer for some weeks. I think they used it in a stew after that.
