Folks, getting reports of lots of people losing quarters in the SIM slot.  This feature is untested and may result in the loss of quarters without giving you proper game credits.  Please do not try this.

The mystery of extraordinarily accurate medieval maps. The portolan maps of the 1500s of the Mediterranean were so accurate that ships today could navigate with them, while most earlier maps were useless for navigation and so imprecise that they are virtually unrecognizable to the modern eye.

Mapmakers left no rough drafts, no sketches, no descriptions of their work, but "John Hessler has approached the question using a tool that is foreign to most historians: mathematics. By systematically analyzing the discrepancies between the portolan charts and modern ones, Hessler has begun to trace the mapmaker's tracks within the maps themselves."

He discovered that different portions of portolan maps were rotated different amounts ranging from 6.5 to 11 degrees, corresponding to the different sailing records used to construct them. The sailing records consisted of lists of ports in the order that the ships encountered them, annotated with compass directions, sailing times between the ports, and sketches of geographic contours visible from afar, such as headlands projecting into the sea. Magnetic north is different from true north, and varies between places and over time at the same place, because of shifts in the molten iron moving in the Earth's outer core, which explains the 6.5 to 11 degree rotations of different parts of the map.

"In this video, Tesla does a field test of a software update that will bring powerful auto-steering functionality to its Model S fleet. CEO Elon Musk revealed that Tesla will ship a software update "in about three months" that will turn on auto-steering, or 'autopilot' as Musk often refers to it. The news comes on the heels of the announcement of the NVIDIA DRIVE PX development platform, a powerful self-driving car computer designed to bring the power of deep neural networks into real-world cars."

Sooo.. let me get this straight.  They want to weaken encryption (making us less safe) in order to make it easier to catch criminals (to make us more safe).  Anyone else see the irony (and questionable judgment, to be nice) in this?
For years, the agency recommended phone encryption as a defense against criminals. Now, that information has been scrubbed from public view

Fascinating graph. "The phrase actually comes from a Medieval Latin proverb, “Graecum est; non potest legi,” meaning “It is Greek; it cannot be read.” From there, the phrase filtered into many European languages. Today, English, Spanish, Polish, Norwegian and Swedish all use Greek as a metaphor for incomprehensibility.

Mark Liberman, a professor linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, started wondering what the equivalent was in different languages. Drawing on a variety of sources, including Wikipedia, Omniglot and user comments, he created the graph above, which shows the language that other languages use to describe things that are hard or impossible to understand."
English speakers say, “It’s all Greek to me,” when they find something hard to understand. Shakespeare used the phrase in “Julius Caesar” (“Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but for mine own part, it was Greek to me”). It’s also common in Spanish, where some people think it gave […]

A separate blog post from Mozilla officials said the intermediate certificate issued to MCS holdings will be revoked in the upcoming Firefox version 37.

That's a start but it would also be good to revoke the CNNIC root. The clearly provided very powerful certificate secrets to someone they should not have.
Misissued certs known to impersonate several Google domains, may affect others.

With all this information, and the Lenovo SuperFish fiasco, I have lost faith in the HTTPS protocol.  There is something really wrong if Parties A and B are communicating using keys, and party C can insert itself in the middle.
