Sansa is pure steel in this scene, and her cold declaration that she wants nothing more to do with him is fantastic.After that, though, the episode makes its usual stops on various storylines, but they re all surprisingly low stakes, and in some cases a little boring:• Arya is ordered by Jaqen to kill an actress who seems nice, possibly at the behest of an actress who doesn t seem nice.When Arya tries to drop subtle hints that maybe killing nice people isn t cool, Jaqen flatly tells her the Many-Faced God comes for the nice and not nice alike, and if Arya screws her assignment again, she can get the hell out of the House of Black and White.• The Kingsmoot is held at the Iron Islands; Yara nominates herself, and Theon manages to give a nice speech proclaiming her the best ruler at which point Euron Greyjoy arrives, announces he actually killed Balon and is going to hook up with fellow would-be Westeros invader Daenerys Targaryen in Meereen both militarily and sexually .His first vision with the Three-Eyed Raven is of the distant past, where the Children of the Forest gather around a giant Weirwood tree, surrounded by a spiral of stones.They have a man, a human man, tied to the tree, and a Child — the same Child who s been hanging out with him and the Raven — slowly pushes a knife into his chest, clearly sacrificing him, and the man s eyes turn ice blue.
Hot on the heels of announcing ads in image search results, Google has revealed it s about to incorporate a new kind of ad into Google Maps, too.The Mountain View company said on Tuesday that it s about to begin experimenting with a variety of ad formats on Maps that make it easier for users to find businesses as they navigate the world around them.In addition, if you do a search in Maps along the lines of restaurants near me, on some occasions you re going to see sponsored results at the top of the list.The changes also give brands the opportunity to add more information to their business page when you visit via Maps, to encourage consumers to explore a store before they even arrive, Google said in a post outlining the new features.It s a relatively small change for the end user, and should even prove useful when scanning a map for desired data.For Google, of course, it means more ad money, while companies who cough up the cash can hope to increase the profile of their business and pull in more customers, should you be tempted to act on that sponsored information, that is.
They ve succeeded in creating an adhesive that can be turned on and off as needed—perfect for wannabe Martha Stewarts who suck at crafting.By heating and cooling the metal, it will stuck and unstick to countless surfaces.It s not unlike hot glue, except the Gallium-based adhesive melts with far less heat, so it s easier to work with.The glue even works on damp surfaces and underwater, with some reduction in sticking power, but still enough to be useful for countless applications.It could be used on industrial pick and place robots in lieu of suction cups which can damage or leave marks on products, or when it comes to the automated handling of delicate objects like paper documents coming out of a printer.And of course, let s not forget we re now one step closer to everyone getting Spider-Man s awesome wall-sticking powers.
These earbuds are the fifth generation of wireless offerings from the company and promise style, sound, and comfort in a single package.That long useful life is possible with four hours from the internal battery and another four hours of listening as you charge using the portable charging clip.Jaybird says that the metal housing eliminates distortion that plastic housings add in making the sound quality better.Freedom earbuds have a secure fit with an over/under secure ear fit system featuring silicone ear fins that hug into the top, back, and lower surface of the ear to lock the buds in place during activity.They will come to other retailers later this summer in gold, black, red, or blue colors.The over-ear fit and elegant metal accents of Freedom bring a fashionable element while also being more rugged than ever, offering the freedom to bring your music anywhere, from mountain to motorcycle, thanks to the buds helmet friendly breakthrough form."
After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here.It s capable of being overclocked I ve gotten it up to 2GHz fiddling about with the EVGA Precision tool provided to reviewers , but it won t ship that way.Apparently I need to spend several hundred dollars to upgrade to the advanced edition.Note that I had a ton of other stuff running at the same time, which probably skewed the results a little lower, but my results are within a few points of others I ve seen, so I trust them.The data was then entered into Excel, formatted as a chart, pasted into PowerPoint and then saved as an image.Comparatively, I wouldn t even bother trying with my old GTX 980, which Nvidia loves to compare its latest card to.
The head of Google s ATAP Advanced Technology and Projects unit Daniel Kaufman offered some additional details during a late Friday session at Google I/O.The concept is that users would be able to unlock devices or sign into apps based on a Trust Score derived from their usage patterns.This would create a Trust Score that would open the gates to the app for those who pass the authentication test.The threshold required for a trust score could be set by the developer, with a higher point total needed for something like your banking application.Project Abacus is already in trial with 33 universities, and banks will begin testing it out next month.While much of this is probably the right direction for a more secure future, your best bet in the near-term is probably to go with a password manager.
It didn t take long for GM and Cruise Automation to put the results of their alliance on the road.The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV won the Digital Trends Best of Show Award at CES 2016 in January.The Bolt EV is expected to have a 200-mile range and to cost approximately $30,000 after incentives.Their driving patterns and lifestyle allow for a 200-mile EV range to fit in, or they may have a second or third vehicle for extra trips, Chevrolet s Darin Gesse, the Product Marketing Manager for the Bolt EV and Volt plug-in hybrid told Digital Trends in March 2016.Don t expect a driverless version that soon, but if you re walking on the streets of San Francisco you might just see one drive by.And sometime in the next few years, as soon as driverless technologies and local, state, and federal regulations allow, it appears that when you call Lyft, you might get picked up by a pink-mustached, driverless Bolt EV.
- The disadvantage of using the bracelet could possibly be that I become too reminded the days I do not reach the goals I set the current steps, stairs and other activities, but in that case you just have to start afresh the next day. Anna Eriksson, CIO Land Survey - I use an Apple Watch. It is an easy and fast way to get in touch with the features of the phone, I notice the easier it rings or I get messages, the phone is in your handbag. I can use the clock to keep track of my training or control other functions of the phone. Jonas Rylander, CIO Inkclub - I always have my Garmin Fenix 3 on the arm. If I wake up after eight hours and still am tired, I can see that it is because I do not get enough deep sleep.
The new documents, Muffett said, show that oil companies clearly preferred to invest in research to explain away the climate risks, instead of on technologies to reduce emissions.Burn off oil fume flames are seen on an offshore oil platform.There is no doubt that increases in fossil fuel usage and decreases of forest cover are aggravating the potential problem of increased CO2 in the atmosphere.The research included burning oil to clear areas of fog and smog, and constructing massive artificial heat mountains out of asphalt to increase rainfall.Bigger drilling rigs, Muffett said, are an example of the profound distinction of how these companies were protecting their own interests and not the public s.This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that April 2016 was the 12th consecutive month to set a global temperature record.For now, the group s new searchable database allows users to identify connections between companies, research institutes and individuals.

We BelieversTraditional plastic six pack rings very often end up in the ocean where they can be horrifically damaging to marine life.Partnering with WeBelievers, the Saltwater Brewery decided to do something about that so it designed, tested and prototyped the first edible six pack ring.The genius behind the packaging is that it s actually made from the natural byproducts of the beer making process such as barley and wheat.We BelieversIt s true that the edible six pack rings do cost more to produce over the plastic ones but Saltwater is confident that its customers won t mind paying the premium when they find out what it s in aid of.Indeed the brewery s president Chris Goves hopes that by showing it can be done, they can influence the larger breweries into investing in the technology and in turn bring the manufacturing costs down.Maarten Wouters via Getty ImagesPeter Agardy, head of brand at Saltwater Brewery said: It s a big investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers and people that love the sea, As a species we have deposited over 5.25 trillion pieces of junk into the ocean.
It is the National Post and Telecom Agency PTS's vision in his job of making Web and communication services accessible to persons with disabilities. - The idea is to be a catalyst for innovation, says Pär Lannerö at PTS. It could be plainly, clear navig-ation, text descriptions of images and video content as well as HTML. In other industries, the construction industry, for example, it is obvious to availability. Their idea was to make literature accessible to all and is today a successful business. - You have to have a good idea, a team that can realize the idea as well as a sharp project, buzzer-is par Lannerö.
I shared the pros and cons of how the same tools and instincts that are designed to help us, can often be used against us.In January, at the Clinton Foundation Health Matters Summit in La Quinta, California, a gathering of leaders in the field explored opportunities and challenges to improving the fundamental systems of global health.The conference focused primarily on education, human rights, poverty alleviation and climate change.Over 900 commitments were made out of April s program, with specific ideas and inventions proposed for the balanced use of advanced data systems and device while factoring in possible risks and benefits.With a very diverse and enthusiastic group of students participating, there was a definite consensus on the implications of what we were exploring and it was clear that the promise for opportunity is as limitless as the potential for innovation.The impact and consequences of how we use technology will naturally have a greater impact on the lives of millennials and on a world and a future that will be left in their hands.
Sijoitustuotteiden myyntiä koskeva lainsäädäntö tiukentuu vuoden 2018 alussa, Finanssivalvonta kertoo.Ongelmana on pidetty sitä, että sijoittaja-asiakkaan etu ja esimerkiksi sijoitustuotteita myyvän pankin etu voivat olla ristiriidassa.Asiakas haluaa hyvää tuottoa sopivalla riskillä, kun taas pankki saattaa pyrkiä myymään mahdollisimman paljon esimerkiksi omia rahastojaan.Fivan johtajan Anneli Tuomisen mukaan muutosten jälkeen sijoitus- ja vakuutustuotteita myyvillä henkilöillä on oltava jatkuvasti riittävä osaaminen ja ammattitaito.Uutena vaatimuksena yhtiö voisi tarjoa tiettyä sijoitustuotetta vain ennalta määrätylle asiakasryhmälle.Myös velvollisuus antaa sijoitusneuvoja eri sijoitustuotteista laajenee, sillä yksinkertaisten, ilman neuvontaa myytävien tuotteiden määritelmä supistuu.
