"What makes the photo so fantastic is the ability of the camera to capture the image in infrared rather than optical wavelengths of light. When relying on optical imaging, any debris between the camera and the light source acts like a mask, but infrared can cut through much of that and reveal the stars and hiding in the background."

Last December’s notice of proposed rule-making regarding rolling back the 2015 Open Internet Order received over 20 million comments from advocacy groups and consumers. Under existing rules, all of those comments were required to pass through the agency’s staff, and commissioners were required to take comments into consideration prior to voting on a rule. Under the new rules, those comments wouldn’t pass through the commission at all.

“We have all heard countless stories of consumers complaining to the FCC about waiting months to have an erroneous charge removed from their bill or for a refund for a service they never ordered or about accessibility services that are not working,” the congressman wrote. ”Oftentimes these issues are corrected for consumers as a result of the FCC’s advocacy on their behalf.” Without the FCC addressing those issues, consumers would be left to wrangle with massive telecommunication corporations on their own, or pay a hefty fee to the FCC.

Get to know this asshole

Palmer Luckey—yes, that Palmer Luckey, the 25-year-old entrepreneur who founded the virtual reality company Oculus, sold it to Facebook, and then left Facebook in a haze of political controversy—hands me a Samsung Gear VR headset. Slipping it over my eyes, I am instantly immersed in a digital world that simulates the exact view I had just been enjoying in real life. In the virtual valley below is a glowing green square with text that reads PERSON 98%. Luckey directs me to tilt my head downward, toward the box, and suddenly an image pops up over the VR rendering. A human is making his way through the rugged sagebrush, a scene captured by cameras on a tower behind me. To his right I see another green box, this one labeled ANIMAL 86%. Zooming in on it brings up a photo of a calf, grazing a bit outside its usual range.

The system I’m trying out is Luckey’s solution to how the US should detect unauthorized border crossings. It merges VR with surveillance tools to create a digital wall that is not a barrier so much as a web of all-seeing eyes, with intelligence to know what it sees. Luckey’s company, Anduril Industries, is pitching its technology to the Department of Homeland Security as a complement to—or substitute for—much of President Trump’s promised physical wall along the border with Mexico.

Rangers discovered the remains of two, possibly three, people in a lion enclosure in the Sibuya reserve, near the south-east town of Kenton-on-Sea.

A high-powered rifle and an axe were also found.

There has been an rise in poaching in Africa in recent years, to feed growing demand for rhino horn in parts of Asia.

This is a problem brought on by the White House

"Recent price rises have also been spurred by a U.S. announcement that it plans to reintroduce sanctions against Iran from November, targeting oil exports.

OPEC and Russia said in June they were willing to raise output to address concerns of supply shortages due to unplanned disruptions from Venezuela to Libya, and likely also to replace a potential fall in Iranian supplies due to U.S. sanctions.

Despite these measures, Goldman Sachs said in a July 4 note to clients that "the market will remain in deficit" in the second half of the year."

“The duty of a man is to be useful to his fellow-men; if possible, to be useful to many of them; failing this, to be useful to a few; failing this, to be useful to his neighbors, and, failing them, to himself: for when he helps others, he advances the general interests of mankind.”--Seneca

"Will it be a bleak outpost staffed by a few dozen people, the lonely existence Matt Damon portrayed in The Martian -- or a thriving colony?

The one thing I do know for sure: It's going to take a lot of work before we get there."

"While there’s no evidence that third-party Gmail add-on developers have misused data, just being able to view and read private emails seems like crossing a privacy boundary. And it’s not clear how secure this system really is; last year, Google users fell victim to a phishing attack that disguised itself as a permissions request from Google Docs to gain access to user contacts using the same authorization system. While Google says it’s made a bunch of improvements since then, the attack highlighted the vulnerabilities of Google’s permissions system."
