  • Uh-Oh: Newly Released Email Was Marked Classified When It Hit Clinton's Server

    Hillary Clinton has claimed from the very beginning of the email scandal that nothing she sent or received was marked classified at the time. *snip* Unfortunately for Hillary, the State Department today released an email from 2012 that totally contradicts her "fact." According to Catherine Herridge at Fox News, the email carries "a classified code known as a 'portion marking' - and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton’s account." (Not retroactively, as the Clinton camp likes to claim.)

    In one of Monday's extraordinary announcements from Microsoft during its TechEd conference in Houston, program managers both announced and demonstrated the ability to build applications for multiple computing platforms, including iOS, using the .NET Framework once heralded as the crown jewel of Windows--specifically, to build and deploy applications that compile to those platforms' native code, without requiring plug-ins or interpreters. "One of the most exciting aspects of .NET going forward is that we are truly embracing openness," declared Habib Heydarian, a program manager for Microsoft's .NET team, during a demonstration Monday. "You can leverage your existing assets, your existing skills,...

    Graduate student Megan Thode wasn't happy about the C-plus she received for one class,saying the mediocre grade kept her from getting her desired degree and becoming a licensed therapist — and, as a result,cost her $1.3 million in lost earnings. Now Thode is suing her professor and Lehigh University in Bethlehem,claiming monetary damages and seeking a grade change. A judge is hearing testimony in the case this week in Northampton County Court. Lehigh and the professor contend her lawsuit is without merit. Northampton County Judge Emil Giordano declined to dismiss the suit Wednesday, ruling that there was enough evidence for...

    Microsoft's C# has been crowned the number one programming language of the year by the PopularitY of Programming Language (PYPL) index. Although Java is still the most widely used programming language in the world, C#'s popularity grew by 2.3% in 2012 - more than any other programming language during the same period. The growth of C# is thought to come at the expense of C and Visual Basic. Java had a 28.3% developer share in 2012, even though its usage went down 0.3%. PHP, whose market share was down 1.6% to 15.4%, was the second most popular. C# and C++...

    Sen. Rand Paul renews fight over indefinite detention of US citizens The Hill Nov. 25, 2012 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is bringing a new — and more aggressive — approach to a longstanding debate over the Defense authorization bill, threatening to filibuster the bill to get a vote on his amendment limiting indefinite detention. Paul’s amendment takes a new tack to curb the military’s ability to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism by affirming they have the right to a speedy trial by jury under the Sixth Amendment. His push to change the indefinite detention laws for U.S. citizens...

    President Vaclav Klaus delivered the keynote address this year to the World Federation of Scientists: This brings me to the topic of my speech. I will try to argue that current as well as realistically foreseeable global warming, and especially Man’s contribution to it, is not a planetary emergency which should bother us. I am not a climatologist, but the IPCC and its leading spokespersons are not climatologists either. I am content to be a consumer of climatology and its related scientific disciplines. In this respect, I am located – in the economic jargon – on the demand side...
  • Canceled Hepatitis C Tests Flame 'Serial Infector' Fears

    ABC ^ | Aug 1 12
    Testing of more than 3,000 people who may have been infected with hepatitis C at a New Hampshire hospital by an alleged "serial infector" was canceled this weekend, leaving some former patients scared and angry. Health officials cancelled the weekend testing clinic, even though they asked the former patients at Exeter Hospital to get tested, because they said the logistics were too much. David Kwiatkowski, a former lab technician at Exeter Hospital, was indicted last week for allegedly infecting 31 people with hepatitis C at that hospital, but might have infected thousands of patients in at least 13 hospitals where...

    Bowen Bethards, 17, was a sophomore in Peggy Carlock's chemistry class at Albany High School in Albany,Calif., outside of San Francisco, in the 2010-11 school year when she gave him the C+ grade at the center of the suit, according to court records first reported by the Albany Patch. Bethards, in a lawsuit filed with his mother, Laureen, in Contra Costa County Superior Court last month, claims that he has suffered severe physical and emotional suffering, damage to his academic reputation, and diminished chances of getting into his college of choice because of the grade. The Bethards claim that Carlock,...

  • Threading and the new processors

    05/21/2012 6:20:42 AM PDT · by varmintman · 11 replies
    Somebody has an ordinary MFC program which uses one or more separate threads to handle disk-intensive activities (AfxBeginThread ( additems, pstr , THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL ) or something like that), and he goes out and buys one of the new computers with an I7 chip in it which are now under a thousand dollars USD..... Assuming he is also using VisualStudio 2010, what exactly happens? is Win 7 bright enough to assign separate processors to separate threads when possible, or do you need to set some build parameter differently from past ages, or do you need a copy of Intel's rich-only-need-apply C++...

    Dennis M. Ritchie, co-creator of UNIX and father of the C programming language, died this past weekend after a long illness. It's no exaggeration to say that without Ritchie, modern computing would not be what it is today. Often known as "dmr," Ritchie was born in Bronxville, NY in 1941. He studied at Harvard University, initially focusing on physics. Ritchie said that he entered computing because "my undergraduate experience convinced me that I was not smart enough to be a physicist, and that computers were quite neat." "As a result, C became in effect a universal assembler: close enough to...

    Princeton Professor Paul Krugman's ugly New York Times blog on the post 9/11 environment stopped short of accusing Pres. Bush of masterminding the attacks, but it did accuse Bush and his associates of cashing in on the tragedy, of being "fake heroes." If nothing else, the timing was hateful – the very week when the former President was called on to emerge from relative obscurity to lend gravity to the memorial ceremonies. Krugman's hate cannot hold a candle to retired MIT professor, and radical anti-American, Noam Chomsky's article in Al Jazeera. Chomsky goes a step further to condemn the US...

    District Republicans often feel like they’re metaphorically under fire in a city that’s 70 percent Democratic. But what happened last night appears to be unprecedented. Paul Craney, executive director of the D.C. Republican Committee, says that a shooter took out the windows at the GOP’s storefront office, near 13th and K streets NW, with a small-caliber projectile, possibly from an air gun. Craney said he got a call from an alarm company early Wednesday morning but didn’t pick up the call. And when he showed up to work this morning the alarm was on. But he didn’t notice the fenestration...

    On Friday, Nokia announced that they were adopting WP7 as their operating system. Although some open source advocates might see this as a set-back for Linux, Android is already the best-selling Linux OS of all times. Meanwhile, as a Ben Zander student, all I see is possibility and the the world of opportunities that this opens to developers. Although they will continue shipping Symbian for a while, they are effectively sun-setting it. Just like you can still purchase Itanium systems from HP, nobody really develops for those anymore. Nokia had this chart to offer on Friday: This is fascinating turn...

    ORLANDO — If President Obama's performance during his first two years in office were a midterm exam, UCF students would assign him a grade of C+. That's the result of an informal survey conducted on the main campus Monday afternoon by a group of student journalists as part of a news reporting class project. On the eve of Obama's State of the Union address, the young journalists asked a random group of 57 UCF students who identified themselves as registered voters how they would grade the president. A tally of the grades resulted in an average of C+. Not a...

    TAMPA - A new poll indicates that no-party candidate Gov. Charlie Crist has faded in the state's three-way Senate race, allowing Republican Marco Rubio to extend his lead. Meanwhile, Democrat Kendrick Meek, in third place, has gained on Crist. The change apparently happened because of Democrats swinging toward Meek and independent voters moving toward Meek and Rubio – all of them moving away from Crist, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey
