NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola
I did read the article on the NYT. However I was not aware that it's not contagious until symptoms set in.
But still -- you completely passed up my my point which was WHY THE FUCK AREN'T WE ENFORCING MANDATORY QUARANTINE UNTIL THE WINDOW PASSES?
I know-- the horror of using common sense and not simply using the "honor system" when dealing with a Biosafety Level 4 contagion is simply outlandish.
NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola
Medical Screener: So I see you've been treating people infected with the Ebola virus
Dr. Ebola; Yup
Medical Screener: Are you infected?
Dr. Ebola: Nope
Medical Screener: Ok, ok enjoy your subway ride back to Manhattan.
If this is how we're going to manage this outbreak, we are completely screwed.
And it's likely already too late. That Dr took a few subway rides and likely infected at least a couple dozen people in the process.
Thats more than enough to start a substantial outbreak around the US and likely the entire planet.
Tracking a Bitcoin Thief
Both these things can easily be faked, so unless they have something more damning, I'd hardly call this proven as presented on it's own.
Now, take it to trial and allow the other side to refute the allegations and provide their own evidence and I will give it merit as "proof".

How English Beat German As the Language of Science
It's what we commonly refer to as a German Shepherd -- but after WWI, the notion of "German" anything was so reviled that they started calling German Shepherds Alsatians.
It was this bias, hatred and on-going punitive measures against Germany post WWI that helped bring Hitler to power.
With that in mind, I can only imagine what global menace shall be unleashed after renaming French Fries to Freedom Fries.

Goodbye, World? 5 Languages That Might Not Be Long For This World
FFS -- what a crock of shit. I personally don't recommend Ruby to clients any more in favor of NodeJS, but there's still plenty of startups going with Ruby. A hell of a lot more than Perl.
But with that said, if it were up to me I'd happily see Perl and PHP die. While Perl is definitely a dying language, PHP seems to be holding on -- with nasty frameworks like Yii (which feature views where anything goes) gaining popularity.

Studies Conclude Hands-Free-calling and Apple Siri Distract Drivers
Siri, as usual was giving me confusing and last second directions saying "Turn Left", in a very confusing series of intersections in Oakland where it looked like she was wrong (and was of course). However, while looking around trying to read street signs, the light turned red just as I got to the intersection, and I was still at about 40mph, after having just got off the Freeway. So, I figured it would be safer to run the light than slam on the brakes and risk stopping in the middle of the intersection.
Immediately I saw flashing red lights, I pulled over and apologized to the CHP Officer while handing him my papers, explaining the situation with Siri and the light etc and you know what? He came back, handed me back my papers and said he decided to give me a break on the ticket and let me go.
Thanks Ponch! Seems the California Highway Patrol is all to familiar with how much a distraction Siri can be.
And what the fuck is up with her 10 mile warning! Two mile I can understand, but 10? Fucking annoying.

Nixie Wearable Drone Camera Flies Off Your Wrist
This is a freaking fantastic piece of tech -- but it really needs to be given a much larger budget and a better design team to make this something the masses would wear.
But for a prototype, it's just fine.
Hopefully someone with the design sense of Apple will buy them and take this to the next level.
Other applications like a Personal Assistant or Scout would be great add-ons for usage as well.

The Physics of Space Battles
I remember seeing something a few years back that made the case that Ship to Ship space battles would be fought by AI Drones. Due to the extreme 3D maneuverability of small craft with thrusters , humans wouldn't stand a chance against machines capable of making advanced tactical calculations in milliseconds.
Whether or not projectiles would trump high powered energy weapons would depend on the sorts of shielding and materials in use to create spacecraft with.
However, a rapid fire rail gun does seem like it would be ideal for close quarters combat and require less energy to penetrate shielding and armor.
But perhaps more exotic ammo than slugs would be more useful, imagine a round that on impact would release rapidly replicating nano-bots that eat through the ship's hull until there was no ship or deliver an EMP to disable the systems.
Yahoo Shuttering Its Web Directory
Last time I saw the Yahoo Web Directory was circa 1999 -- and it was an outmoded next to useless service back then compared to Yahoo search (which was top dog at the time)
I had just assumed they'd shuttered it, what with Google kicking their ass so hard that they all but left the Search market to focus on acquiring trendy startups in other areas so they could run them into the same sort of irrelevancy they did with Search.
Just added a couple pics from yesterdays shoot at Dalva.
Overall, the shoot went really well. I was very pleased with the makeup provided by Kamilla and the models were of course a pleasure to work with.
Being that I'm sitting on an 80gig dedicated server at a rather fab colo facility, I feel I need to get off my butt and put together my own portfolio page... the musecube thing doesn't cut it. So be looking for my link to update to a real online portfolio with many pics. On that vein, I'm also thinking about putting together an online mens rag, not porno, but something akin to Maxim but strictly photographic... but more on that later.
Wow, getting lots of demand for my photoskills by models here in SF.
I just did a shoot last Saturday with Christy Holt which turned out very well.
This Sunday I will be doing a shoot on location with pin-up girls Susan Church and Dangerrr Doll. This shoot is already shaping up to be a very wild and fun happening complete with cat fight and plenty of that glam we all love. So be prepared for some very hot shots with these 2 done up to the 9's and at each others throats!
Also, Starri Noir has asked to pose as well. I am honored by that because of her affiliations with Eric Kroll, who's work I happen to greatly admire.
I am looking forward to doing some very obscure and artsy shots with her in the next week or so.
