Solar-powered airplane begins last leg of round-the-world flight.
Solar-powered aircraft! Solar panels on wings charge heavy batteries in the fuselage, which provide enough power for controlled flight. Incredible.
The Sun-powered aircraft Solar Impulse sets out from Egypt's capital, Cairo, on the last leg of its quest to circle the globe.

Leaked emails from DNC Wikileaks has published the emails leaked from the DNC, at https://wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/ with a searchable interface.
For example, searching on "get someone to ask his belief" reveals an email thread in which the supposedly impartial DNC flunky Brad Marshall proposes ways to undercut Sanders using religion. There are other dishonest DNC threads linked here http://linkis.com/usuncut.com/politics/XWJci#.V5Lh6C1IHYY.google_plusone_share .

The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, from January 2015 to May 2016. The 2016 Dem primary was rigged by DNC insiders, in favor of Clinton.

Big surprise, not. Netflix customers give poor ratings to the Angry Birds movie. In ~2009, I went to a talk by some Rovio VP. He unveiled their new product - branded socks. If I had been able to, I would have shorted Rovio stock. They were clearly unable to capitalize on their only success or indeed, repeat it.

Junior quite liked the game, but he's back on his pokemon pills now.

The cells inside a tumour change and evolve just like animals in the wild. Understanding how this works could help us stop cancer in its tracks

I may have a couple of relatives already experiencing that downside...

This is a strange house. I watched the construction, 2 or 3 years ago. There's a steelplate-fortified "panic room" behind that grey window-less wall. That seems like a waste of space and an odd thing to build into an ordinary suburban house. But people build fallout shelters in Ohio, so why not panic rooms in Lost Altos?

Did they at least make the panic room into a home theater or something else useful?

Ten incredible facts you might not know about the Hammersmith and City line. Ho Boy! They are incredible. They are facts. They are about the H&C line. Ten! Count 'em.
Coloured salmon pink on the map and running from Hammersmith to Barking, the Hammersmith and City line serves 22 stations and is the route that takes many of us from east to west London. If you’ve caught this line, you’ll probably have noticed that its track and all of its stations are shared with either the District, Circle or Metropolitan lines. But the Hammersmith and City was in fact the first underground railway in the world.

Yeah, mostly stuff any regular user would already know or stuff that is of no interest to anyone at all. Nothing actually interesting, which given the abundance of fascinating marginalia about the Tube is most unimpressive. (Even though each 'fact' is about ten words long, two of them still contain obvious grammatical errors. Subediting: we can't afford it!)

At least one picture is of the wrong station.

Typical barrel-scraping listicle crap.

An excellent critique of the hypocrisy of GOP lackeys, by Jon Stewart.
 
SIREN: Jon Stewart took over the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert desk and gave a monologue about Trump. It was everything you hoped it could be.
From the July 21 edition of CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:

I can hardly believe that Apple's "calendar" app on the desktop is restricted to just one PC. What shitty antique software that is for 2016!
How do I set up a calendar on Apple that is visible on all my devices?
How do I share the appts that I entered on one Apple PC to all my PCs?

Please don't tell me Apple doesn't have a solution, and I have to use Goo-apps?

I have been reviewing Owncloud source (version 7).It didn't use bind variables for SQL at all, and was sed'ing Mysql syntax SQL into Postgres compliance after generating the full statement. No ORM at all.

I uninstalled and never looked again.

I have been told they are better now, but didn't look again.
