Four weeks later, his grisly fate was revealed.This case spawned a fearful rumor that tapped into the Satanic Panic of the 1980s, that cultists were planning to kidnap children for their rituals.The man who d convinced his followers to join in his madness—the bodies found at Rancho Santa Elena were just some of the casualties—was El Padrino, the Godfather his real identity: he was 26-year-old Adolfo de Jesus Constanzo , with help from 24-year-old Sara Aldrete, a.k.a.Rolling Stone s in-depth investigation of the case excellent reading if you re not faint of heart, as is this Texas Monthly take on the story quotes an anthropologist as calling Constanzo the Pied Piper of death.Costanzo had grown up in the Santería religion, but his beliefs had morphed into something far darker, of his own design, as he gained more power.Jouret, a doctor, was the face of the organization, delivering the lectures that—despite warning of the looming environmental apocalypse—were magnetic enough to attract new followers.

The Star Wars universe is packed with evocative locations, from the desert planets of Tatooine and Jakku in The Force Awakens, to the frozen environs of Hoth, the Cloud City of Bespin, the entrancing lakes of Naboo and the volcanic nightmare of Mustafar.Tatooine's binary suns in A New Hope - Kepler-16b"If there's a bright centre to the universe, you're on the planet that's farthest from," says Luke Skywalker in A New Hope.Actually, it's our solitary Sun that's the odd one out here; astronomers reckon that about 80% of stars are multiple-star systems, which means that worlds with two, three or even seven sunsets are the norm.Multiple star systems are everywhere you look; next time you're outside in clear night skies, look north to find the second star in from the tip of the handle of the Plough/Big Dipper and you'll notice that it's an obvious double star.However, the bigger star Mizar is actually four stars while smaller star Alcor is two, all gravitationally bound.
If you want to get to grips with the real risks of online privacy you need to understand just what happens to your data in the architecture of the internetYou press the shutter icon on your phone and capture a photo of your baby daughter.With a couple of swipes, you attach it to an email in your Gmail app and fire it off to your mother-in-law.As personal data goes, it doesn’t get much more innocuous.But the truth is that spraying around any private information is risky.You might think that’s overblown.
When they weren't failing to find the droids they were looking for, or challenging Sith Lords publicly about their hokey religion, the Empire must have managed to do something.Just to be entirely clear, we're absolutely not backing any kind of fascist totalitarian state - but they did manage to assemble a few moon sized death stars, overthrow a republic and take out an army of mythically impressive Jedi.Well we don't have Death Star rays that can do it in one fell swoop, but nuclear weapons are definitely the most insidious weapons that we do have on planet Earth.Stand up Prism, the technology that governments brought in under the radar to monitor all of our communications and store it.The Empire would love Prism, and whistleblower Edward Snowden would no doubt be dealing with a squad of Stormtroopers right now if the Grand Moffs weren't far, far away.We all know that R2-D2 would have been far better at flying the X-Wing than his master and his hokey religion and it's pretty clear that Darth Vader wouldn't have been troubled by Han Solo if he wasn't lumbered with incompetent humanoid pilots, so we reckon drones would be high up on the Empire's wishlist.
estimated that in Finland the direction has turned to end during the year.He stressed that, inter alia, the Bank of Finland and the OP bank group have changed their estimates of the situation in Finland more positive.It is not necessary to now change, although the spending limits discussion in we'll get more growth and employment", he said new year greetings in.Sipilä pointed out, however, that although the direction is better, is to keep in mind that all finns did not go well."Social inequality, the threat is real and the government took it seriously.I Consider it very important that Finland's okay, when you put like we all finns involved.

These changes are especially apparent in archive photos recently uncovered by the New York Public Library.The collection contains prints from 1935 to 1936 by Berenice Abbott, a photographer who documented NYC's transformation over the previous century in her series "Changing New York."Comparing her photos to Google Street View images reveals how the city's public spaces have changed up to today."The bones of the city are still there, but we're good at adapting it for what we want."Jefferson Market Courthouse, 1935 vs 2014.Berenice Abbott/Google/Skye GouldIn 1939, the tracks in front of the courthouse migrated underground with the creation of the subway, bringing more light to the street and increasing the value of the nearby real estate.
the International monetary fund the IMF to illustrate the April Fiscal Monitor, in its report, how the taxation and in particular tax fraud affect different countries on productivity.the IMF writes, how the country can boost its productivity by developing as well as tax policies that the administration, where companies can invest and hire labor to their business and tax regulations terms.monetary fund estimates that the taxation of developing countries real gross domestic product would rise on average by about one percentage point for 20 years.the IMF illustrates an example of two almost identical software company, one of which paid less in taxes and its cost of capital, with statutory obligations, are smaller.Less taxes paid by the company afford to make such investments, which are not that very well, while the higher taxes paid by the companies can afford to invest only in very productive activities.total output would increase if capital would be transferred to lighter taxes that vista attempts to more heavily tax to be companies whose investments generate better.

Fujitsu has launched a new global campaign in an effort to demonstrate how its products and services can help harness the power of data.Using the tagline Shaping tomorrow with you , the campaign features an online film showcasing different industries implementing Fujitsu technology.Interestingly, the film was shot live, in-camera and released without any post-production.To achieve this, the film s creators mcgarrybowen and Found Studio used 3D projection mapping and holographic technologies to transform a white set into a series of live-action scenarios.Jane Briers, creative director at mcgarrybowen London, said: "We had a real opportunity to make the medium of projections part of the message itself, and bring to life the theme of 'digital transformation' in a way that had never been attempted before.
Circuit breakers broke bad, workload moved but array flipped out under heavy loadSalesforce.com has revealed that a bug in the firmware of its storage arrays was behind last week's data loss incident.That mess took the company's NA14 instance offline, so it took steps to move it into a Chicago data centre.Once these timeout conditions began, a single database write was unable to successfully complete, which caused the file discrepancy condition to become present in the database.The data loss came about because while Our internal backup processes are designed to be near real-time, however the local copy of the database had not yet completed.Salesforce says the circuit breakers that started the mess passed March 2016 tests, but have been replaced anyway.We do know, thanks to a 2013 post by site reliability engineer Claude Johnson that Salesforce has in the past used ZFS and Solaris-powered servers for storage.
And despite the overflow of data available to marketers today, some still struggle with identifying who you are.In her blog post, Principal Marketing Manager for HubSpot's optimization team Pamela Vaughan defines personas as fictional, generalized representations of your ideal customers.Taryn Collins, content manager and Web editor for cloud platform Acquia, points out that personas are representations of real customers while segments are groups of actual customers that share similar traits.In a blog post, Gartner's VP of Content Publishing Heather Pemberton Levy writes that personas are built from a combination of the following data points:Demographic income, geography, level of education, age Psychographic values, opinions, interests, aspirations, attitudes, and lifestyles Ethnographic observations of customers in their daily routines Transactional historical customer relationship data, first- and third-party purchase data, post-sale services Behavioral: engagement across channels Buffer Content Crafter Kevan Lee also encourages marketers to check their site analytics for traffic trends; do some social listening to see what problems or concerns customers are talking about; conduct surveys to learn about customers' goals, values, and pain points; and collect feedback from other departments, like customer service.Once marketers obtain this information, Lee says they should stitch it together to bring the persona to life.There's no perfect number of personas one needs to create, but Levy says four to eight is typical.
Beyond the great amount of tips, tricks, and tools you can use, it is important to learn the thought process and philosophy needed for anyone to consider himself a growth hacker.Just to clarify the concept, let s take a look first at what a growth hacker isn t myths , so then we can establish what he/she actually is.Growth hacking is the only option for startups to make it: Again, just like in the previous myth, we need to say, that it doesn t guarantee results and it is not the only way.Growth hacking is about acquiring new users: Actually, a real growth hacker knows that the best place to find growth is through existing users.As said in thecrunch.com, This curiosity leads to a grasp of product and user experience way beyond the surface.Growth hacking has worked so far with limited resources; without this predicament, the possibilities are immense.
The system can process 90 million instructions per second at less than 40 watts.That means the system uses less power than Nvidia s competing Drive PX2 computer, which consumes nearly 250 watts, according to CNET s Road Show blog.The system first started shipping in September of last year, and is now widely available to the whole automotive industry.Next level computers like the BlueBox and Nvidia s Drive PX2 provide far more computing power than ADAS processors, so they can process mountains of data from a large number of sensors in real time for instant decision-making.The introduction of this computer is a major step on the road to getting self-driving cars all over the road, which could happen sooner rather than later.John Greenough, senior research analyst for BI Intelligence, has compiled a detailed report on self-driving cars that examines the major strides automakers and tech companies have made to overcome the barriers currently preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the market.Further, the report examines global survey results showing where fully autonomous cars are highly desired.Here are some key takeaways from the report:Three barriers have been preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the road: 1 high technological component prices; 2 varying degrees of consumer trust in the technology; and 3 relatively nonexistent regulations.California's regulations stipulate that a fully autonomous car must have a driver behind the wheel at all times, discouraging Google's and Uber's idea of a driverless taxi system.In full, the report:Examines consumer trust in fully autonomous vehiclesIdentifies technological advancements that have been made in the industryAnalyzes the cost of fully autonomous technology and identifies how cost is being reducedExplains the current regulations surrounding fully autonomous carsTo get your copy of this invaluable guide, choose one of these options:Subscribe to an ALL-ACCESS Membership with BI Intelligence and gain immediate access to this report AND over 100 other expertly researched deep-dive reports, subscriptions to all of our daily newsletters, and much more.But however you decide to acquire this report, you ve given yourself a powerful advantage in your understanding of the emerging world of self-driving cars.
A file picture of a prototype Chinese maglev train operating in a vacuum tube.Photo: SCMP PicturesChina and the United States are neck and neck in the race to develop military applications for an ultra high-speed Hyperloop transport system, according to a Chinese researcher involved in one of the projects.It will use magnetic levitation, or maglev technology, to raise the vehicle above a track and reduce friction.A major drive for the research comes from military demand, Zhao said.Most Chinese researchers used maglev systems to lift the vehicle into the air to avoid physical contact with the rail, which would generate enormous friction and heat at high speed.The maglev approach is less popular in the US, according to Zhao.
