Kass Morgan studied 19th-century literature at Oxford, but her popular The 100 series, which has been adapted into a show on The CW, isn t exactly a marriage plot.The three books ― with a fourth due out in December ― center on a space colony that s suffering from a food shortage and consequently punishes even minor crime-committing adults with death sentences.Teens, on the other hand, are held captive in a prison, until 100 of them are selected to return to Earth to examine whether its conditions have become habitable.Her background in classic literature works its way into the story ― many of her characters are named after popular science fiction writers, like Octavia Butler, H.G.The cool thing about The 100, is these are kids who ve been robbed of agency and responsibility over their lives, and suddenly, they re humanity s best change to save the human race, Morgan said in an interview with The Huffington Post.Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
I grew up with a standard, cheap rice cooker my mom bought at a grocery store.Cooking rice is a pretty straightforward task, so what s with the super expensive cookers?A rice cooker, on the other hand, cooks perfect rice every time.The water starts to boil and steam, and once the thermostat hits a certain temperature, the heat is reduced and the device shuts itself off or switches to Warm mode .If you make a lot of rice and want to save some time and effort, that s a good enough reason to get one, and even a cheapie will do the job.The Difference Between a $20 and $200 Machine
Digitisation means that companies are increasingly looking CIOs in activities outside the IT department. The Wall Street Journal and the example of the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, now named Aarti Shah as new cio. Shah is a långvägare within the company, but she has not worked in the IT department, but with data in areas such as brand development. Thus she becomes the first CIO of the company who did not have deep technical knowledge - but she is also part of a broader trend in the corporate world, namely that CIOs picked off IT departments. - The experience of having been the business manager or lead a department that uses the technology is extremely valuable in the CIO role, especially now when companies reorganize themselves for a digital business. There is a clear lack of CIOs who have this experience, said Phil Schneider Meyer is a partner at recruitment firm Heidrick & Struggles to Wall Street Journal.
TP-Link tri-band router is designed to be as unobtrusive and take up as little space as possible. We have tested a whole bunch of powerful routers with 802.11ac technology during the past year. Triple links and good performance TP-link Archer C3200 is as powerful as most of their competitors. There is a router with four gigabit ethernet ports and three-band wifi - a 2.4 GHz band for low bandwidth but long range and two around 5 GHz for newer and faster gadgets. The antennas are built into the slots on top of the router if it stands on end or hanging on the wall, and is extended upward if it is flat ..
At last, Pokémon Go, the highly anticipated augmented reality game that was announced last September, has made its way into Google Play and the App Store.The only problem is that the title doesn t seem to be available globally just yet.The Wall Street Journal noted that the Pokémon Company wants players in the US and Japan to please wait for a while for the official launch of the game.It s also unavailable in India at present – but according to The Verge, some users in Australia and New Zealand have reported that both the Android and iOS versions of the game are live in those countries.So hopefully, you won t have to wait much longer before it arrives where you live.For those of you who came in late, Pokémon Go sees players exploring their cities in the search for Pokémon, using their phones to spot these creatures in the wild using AR tech and location info.

In many ways, tech IPOs have become the real unicorns: Beasts that are mythical and thus never actually seen.Put another way, it is the opposite of the way the term is used now to label any private, venture-backed company with a valuation north of $1 billion.Basically, that is pretty much every single tech company at this point, which means this type of unicorn is easier to spot than plastic cups on the floor of a fraternity house after an all-night kegger.Despite the fact that the tech IPO has been all but vaporized, there is some reason to think that it has not been completely snuffed out.Just this week, Renaissance Capital noted there were four tech IPOs in the second quarter, up from zippo in the first quarter.And with the Line IPO chugging down the tracks, the third quarter will at least get off to a not completely moribund start.But whither from here?Renaissance Capital keeps a watch on Notable Private Companies Expected to Seek IPOs.So I thought it would be interesting to take a look at these tech prospects, although, personally, I m way more psyched that one of the non-tech candidates is Jose Cuervo, the world s largest Tequila producer.
I want to look at it but I'm scared it might eat me.Don't panic, it's just the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R: a vehicle that has now commandeered the top slot as Mercedes-AMG's most powerful, potent and downright crazy machine currently offered.It hasn't got teeth, so it probably won't eat you, but it has a new 'Panamerica' front grille - inspired by the AMG GT3 racer, no less - and those vertical aero slats are decidedly sharky.Just don't get in its way while it's pummelling a race circuit.So just another millionaire's track-day plaything, then?The 577bhp AMG GT R is actually road legal but has been heavily developed on the unforgiving surfaces of Nürburgring so it can excel at the everyday, as well set a few lap records in its spare time.
At a certain time based on sunset and sunrise , the device would switch its display color calibration to remove blue hues — it s apparently better if you want to get a good night s sleep, and viewing devices emitting blue light at late hours can have serious health effects.In addition to displaying warmer tones, the Settings app would also swap to a dark mode so that you re not blinded when you open it in the dark.Tap it once to turn it on and switch to warmer hues, and press and hold the tile to go into Night Mode settings.The status bar is the area you see at the top when in any screen and it displays the icons of your notifications and other important details like your battery status, Wi-Fi and data connection, the time, and more.When you re in the Tuner, tap on Status Bar and you ll be treated to numerous toggles for things like Auto-rotate screen, Hotspot, and Volume.Have a limited data plan?
Netflix Inc.'s stumble with international subscriber growth belies a "long runway" for growth abroad in the future, according to Canaccord Genuity.Analyst Michael Graham chalked up the weakness in the stock, which is off more than 30 percent from its 2015 peak, to subpar guidance on its estimated expansion outside the U.S., but sees any headwinds on this front as temporary in nature."Our deep dive analysis of Netflix s international markets several of which were just launched during Q1 suggests the company can achieve 85% and 84% of our 2020 and 2025 international subscriber forecast simply by focusing on the wealthiest households in the 13 countries with the most T.V."Our analysis suggests a long runway for international sub growth in Q4 and beyond, and we believe this is the key metric for the stock through next year at least."The analyst initiated the stock with a 'buy' rating and price target of $120.CVR Refining LP is sinking amid a downgrade by Piper Jaffray analyst Jeff Dietert.The analyst slashed his earnings estimates for fiscal years 2016 and 2017 to $0.01 and $0.03 from $0.52 and $1.10, warning that the company might not be able to deliver cash distributions to shareholders until the second half of next year."We are cutting our earnings and cash distribution estimates consistent with disappointing 2Q refining margin indicators, as well as elevated product inventories that could continue to pressure margins during 2H 16 and 2017," he wrote."Considering that many investors own the units for cash distribution, the expected lack of distributions could weigh on the stock.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the no-brainer update for most Windows 10 adoptees, now has a ship date: Aug. 2.Microsoft announced the delivery schedule on Wednesday in a blog post by Microsoft Corp. VP for the Windows and Devices Group Yusuf Mehdi.and Windows Ink, which gains a permanent spot on the desktop and adds deeper system integration and a host of impressive features have you tried the virtual ruler?The August launch follows a relatively brief open beta period, which kicked off soon after Microsoft announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update at its annual Build Developer's Conference in March.I tested one of the early builds and was impressed with the new features and its stability.In the meantime, Windows 10 proper has, thanks in part to an almost year-long free upgrade program that ends on July 29 and maybe some overly aggressive upgrade tactics , zoomed to now 350 million installs.
While the Nvidia GTX 1080 and 1070 are exciting, powerful cards, there are few people out there who have the kind of money to spend on that sort of hardware.In reality, Nvidia fans will need to wait for something like the GTX 1060, which we may have our first look at thanks to a snapshot uploaded to Reddit.With the AMD RX 480 coming in at such an impressive price point, with decent power for most gamers, Nvidia will need to work hard to be competitive at the mid-range this generation, so the GTX 1060 is an important card despite likely being far less powerful than its bigger brothers.TechPowerUp notes that the card itself appears to be shorter than the cooler, much like the RX 480, and some previous Nvidia mid-range entries.Considering the RX 480 from AMD debuts on June 29 at a competitive price point, we wouldn t be surprised if Nvidia announced the GTX 1060 soon.If stock issues persist for the new Pascal cards, Nvidia could have a tough fight on its hands over the next few months.

Getty ImagesIt s official: Microsoft code isn t just for Windows anymore.Today marks the first time that Microsoft has officially supported using the platform for real-world applications on Linux and OS X, the two primary competitors to Windows.Over the last decade, the world s tech businesses, from Google and Facebook and Twitter on down, have increasingly used Linux and other open source software to build their online services and other technologies, and as a result, IT vendors—the companies that help businesses build their online services—have moved closer and closer to the open source way.Microsoft s motivation for supporting Linux and releasing open source software isn t altruistic.For James Niesewand and his team at Illyriad Games, it allows them to fix their own problems .NET without having to wait for Microsoft to do it, or writing their own programming platform from scratch.The company uses .NET for its own cloud-based services, so, in theory, the improvements made to the platform by Illyriad and other outside developers could have ripple effects throughout Microsoft s empire, from Outlook.com to Cortana.

This isn t limited to just video games either, although that is certainly the biggest market for VR right now.When it comes to talking about VR, one of the ultimate goals is providing users with a genuine-feeling sense of place, which journalism can utilize to tell stories.Researchers at the University of Louisville experimented with VR to treat anxiety disorders and phobias, while some at Stanford University used it to set up practice spaces for surgeons.While some things about sexual relationships can t cross over digitally, such as body heat and breath—according to Nathan Grayson over at Kotaku who tested out VR porn last year—pairing devices with haptic feedback tools that can provide tactile sensations can increase those feelings of authenticity.The film industry has been playing around with viewer immersion since 3D glasses were used in 1950s theaters, with amusing attempts such as smell-o-vision failing to grab audiences.Tours in some of the world s most famous museums can help those who wouldn t be able to ever travel, while others can provide experiences you couldn t get in a crowded, museum setting.
