Accenture Faces Mid-March Healthcare.gov Deadline Or 'Disaster'
I think the headline writers are a bit confused on who exactly is facing the disaster here, and it's certainly not Accenture.
Lawsuits Seek To Turn Chimpanzees Into Legal Persons
Because with rights come responsibility. That corporations have certain responsibilities is seen in the governance laws they must follow.
Non-humans do not have the capacity for honoring the idea that their rights end where your nose begins.

The Neuroscience of Happiness
So does anyone have an evolutionary explanation for happiness or any of the other stuff you were talking about? I'd like to think my cat admires me, but Churchill is of the opinion she looks down on me. Yet we're both just animals?
How Safe Is Cycling?
Interesting... I'll be down there next weekend and see for myself.
How The NSA Targets Tor
I was thinking the same thing (FoxAcid, does it run Linux?). Why ANYONE doing anything online a government thinks they shouldn't, would do so running MS Windows is a mystery. The only way I would even consider it is if the machine was completely blocked from internet access with the exception of the TOR proxy ports.

It's like music tastes, people always prefer the music they listened to in high school and college
Cute, you must be young. I am comfortably in my 40s, and grew up listening to metal (think the Big Four: Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax). Currently all I listen to now is progressive house, electro & techno.
Now, you may not like my current choices in music, but the point is that people change as they mature and grow older. It will happen to you to.
Bitcoin, BYOD, Phablet, Selfie, and Twerking Find Place In Oxford Dictionary
Tell me about it, I feel like Abe Simpson:
"I used to be `with it.' But then they changed what `it' was. Now what I'm `with' isn't `it' and what's `it' seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you."
Gore's Staff Says He Was Misquoted On Hexametric Hurricanes
When you ridiculously claim "What about Gore's ridiculous claim that his propaganda film predicted the effects of Hurricane Sandy", where is your evidence for that?
I left my "evidence" out of the OP, but if you're too lazy to look up the interview yourself, here is what Gore said:
"You mentioned my movie back in the day. The single most common criticism from skeptics when the film came out focused on the animation showing ocean water flowing into the World Trade Center memorial site. Skeptics called that demagogic and absurd and irresponsible. It happened last October 29th, years ahead of schedule, and the impact of that and many, many other similar events here and around the world has really begun to create a profound shift."
That's fine and all, but Gore also claimed large swaths of the earth would be underwater by now.
Uh, 2-11% increase in the top end
Citation needed. Again, if you go back to the interview, you'd see that Gore was referring to hurricanes when he referred to "extreme events being more extreme", but as usual for him, that is hyperbole. The trend for major storms since 1851 is negative. See for yourself.
Gore's Staff Says He Was Misquoted On Hexametric Hurricanes
The press nowadays is more a lapdog of the establishment than a watchdog. What about Gore's ridiculous claim that his propaganda film predicted the effects of Hurricane Sandy, or that hurricanes are more extreme now? Klein let those statements pass without a contrary word. Besides, no matter how you spin what he said, it's factually ignorant. There is no top end to a Cat 5 hurricane classification, so no need for a higher rating.
Could Humanity Really Build 'Elysium'?
I can't believe no one has mentioned this, but actually Elysium is more like Battle Angel Alita, except with cyborgs, a floating city full of rich people, and a barren world full of proles.

Hollywood's Love of Analytics Couldn't Prevent Six Massive Blockbuster Flops
That's great, but the studios don't control those kind of things, the theater companies do.
Still, I feel the same as you. I took my son to World War Z, which was the first time I had been to the movies in years. The film was awful, full of idiotic plot holes and situations that were clearly contrived to give some sense of danger to a movie that didn't have any blood in it.
But going back to your point, the reason it will be a few more years before I go back to the movies is the ridiculousness of paying to sit in a theater just so you can be told you're a thief or a pirate and "THEY KNOW WHO YOU ARE" (actual words in PSA).
Global Anoxia Ruled Out As Main Culprit In the P-T Extinction
Well WTH, I have to pass half the terms in the summary through Wikipedia to figure out what the heck they're talking about? This is supposed to be a self-selecting site for smart folk, but being smart in one area doesn't make you knowledgeable in another.
It would probably help if the editors required more than just copypasta from the original article. I don't think I'm being dumb, just acknowledging that I'm ignorant of certain topics.
America's Second-largest Employer Is a Temp Agency
I'm still waiting for the President's "laserlike focus" on jobs to pay off. We've had close to 7 years of what effectively amounts to institutionalized stimulus with nothing to show for it except inflated CXO bonuses and Wall Street numbers that are being propped up by the Fed.
The leadership of both parties need to jump in the Potomac.

Microsoft Pushing Bing For Search In Schools, With Ad-Removal Hook
As a search application I cannot stand using Google or going to their website anymore. If Google isn't second guessing your typing it's including results that have nothing to do with your search.
My personal favorite right now is "ubuntu change bluetooth mac". Google claims 'About 4,890,000 results', yet you don't even get off the first page of results before the results have lost all relevancy. I get it if it's an esoteric search, but if it is just tell me '20 results' and leave it at that.
It's my perception that their results have steadily trended downward in quality for the last few years.
All that said, it's unfortunately still the best search engine.
