International Space Station study findings could help researchers “solidify” knowledge for improved metals on Earth.

You scared the shit out of me with this...

My thesis work is on some of the first direct atomic level observations of phenomena that happens at the solid/liquid interface and I'm sitting here preparing a manuscript to submit to Science... Thankfully this overlap is small, but it'll be cool to follow up on.

Showed this to some of the other techs at work, and they damn near nutted.

"Unlike Superfish, PrivDog installs a different root certificate on every system, so there’s no shared private key that would allow attackers to generate rogue certificates. However, it turns out they don’t even need a shared key

The error in PrivDog’s implementation is simpler than that: The program doesn’t properly validate the original certificates it receives from websites. It will therefore accept rogue certificates that would normally trigger errors inside browsers and will replace them with certificates that those browsers will trust.

For example, an attacker on a public wireless network or with control over a compromised router could intercept a user’s connection to bankofamerica.com and present a self-signed certificate that would allow him to decrypt traffic. The user’s browser would normally reject such a certificate.

However, if PrivDog is installed, the program will take the attacker’s self-signed certificate and will create a copy signed with its own trusted root certificate, forcing the browser to accept it. In essence, the user’s traffic would be intercepted and decrypted by the local PrivDog proxy, but PrivDog’s connection to the real site would also be intercepted and decrypted by a hacker."
The tool replaces SSL certificates without validating them first, opening the door to man-in-the-middle attacks

Ouch.  Gee, worry about this kind of shit or worry about the likelihood of the NSA putting me in Cuban box because I said "ISIS"?

Moral of the story - do NOT place much trust in companies built on advertising (including Google) to make your security a priority.

Umm, thanks for the "Leave now to get to the airport on time" notification, Google, but I've kinda been here for 4.5 hours already.

Probably a good idea. There's definitely better food to be had, within a short walk.

Walking through the various Las Vegas hotel casino floors in between sessions and meetings, I can't help but notice the striking similarities between the gambling machines and many of the mobile games on both Android and iOS.

Opening session at +IBM​​ #InterConnect 2015.
Some really exciting talks about leveraging big data in healthcare.
Things like comprehensive patient data correlation (medications, genetics, diet, lifestyle, etc) to manage risk and avoid adverse interactions and reactions while maximizing therapeutic efficacy.
Automatically matching patients to clinical trials.

Massively cool stuff.

Nice decor, but it's consistent with the rest of the Cheddar's chain, so that's not really saying much. The music was so loud that the server could hardly hear us, and vice versa. Multiple mistakes on the drink orders, and we had to ask for straws. Ordered a child's meal with the appetizers so it would arrive sooner, but it was held until the rest of the table's meals were brought. Specifically stated dairy allergy while ordering, child's meal arrived buttered. "Catfish" tastes more like tilapia. One entree arrived incomplete. "Fork tender" baby back ribs were overcooked, dry, and tough. We live a few blocks away, but we won't be back.
