    If you’re on the hunt for a six-figure job — and who isn’t? — you might want to send your resume over to Deloitte Digital, Amazon or Cynet Systems.

Since the start of the year, Deloitte Digital, Amazon and Cynet Systems have each sought out to fill more than 5,500 positions with starting salaries of $100,000 or more. And they all have something in common: They’re linked to the tech industry, which Ladders...

    Thursday’s report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was, as Canadian pop-punk degenerates Sum 41 might have put it, “All killer, no filler.” There were so many jaw-dropping moments of, “No, wait — FBI employees can’t do that, can they?” that it transformed an actual government report into a veritable page-turner. One of those minor gems, however, comes when you find out why the FBI didn’t investigate the Blackberries and other email devices of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle. “We found that the FBI team and the prosecutors decided together to generally limit...
  • Project Wing returning to Virginia to test appetite for real world drone delivery service

    The Roanoke Times ^ | June 14, 2018 | Jacob Demmitt
    Backyards around Virginia — possibly in Wise, Loudoun, Montgomery and Roanoke counties — are poised to serve as the next proving grounds for drone delivery technology, as Google’s sister company prepares to return stateside after nearly a year of testing in Australia. But this time Project Wing says the experiments are less about whether or not it has the ability to airdrop deliveries onto your lawn in a matter of minutes — it already knows it can do that. The question now: Do people want it? “The reality is the technology has come a long way. We’ve done extensive testing,...

    In San Francisco Bay area, anyone can be considered a unicorn. Just look at the Golden State Warriors’ past few seasons. It was not long ago a franchise that was once criticized for taking (now NBA All-Star) Steph Curry and largely defined as underdogs. However, not only were the Warriors innovative in their approach to rebuild, but the organization put up the numbers and earned the championships to prove it, and when it comes to Silicon Valley and finding use for blockchain, only a few companies have been able to truly succeed in establishing a solid footing. While we hear...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 06/14/18 | Judi McLeod
    Barack Obama plunged America into darkness as ‘The Enthroned King of Fake News’. Why is no one asking this question? Are the tens of thousands of National Archives records destroyed by the former Obama administration a cover up for the corruption of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election and removal of every scrap of truth that the RussiaGate investigation is a total fabrication?

    Bitcoin could be the money of the future — unless it continues to operate in the same way that it currently does. A new study authored by economist and data consultant Alex de Vries has painted a horrifying picture of a few months from now with the cryptocurrency growing as rapidly as it does at the moment. As per the research, keeping the Bitcoin business up and running by the end of this year would mean using 7.67 gigawatts of power, which is one two-hundredth of all the electricity used on the planet. In its current form, the Bitcoin network...

    Killing America With Kindness: Google provides a curated one-world curriculum preloaded onto its Chromebooks The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy. Convenience is prioritized in 21st century life. Electronic devices that communicate with each other are marketed with the flattering descriptor “Smart” devices. Futuristic Smart Homes feature everything Smart from appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that can communicate with each other and be...
  • The Last Of Us 2 trailer hammers home Ellie’s lesbian relationship

    One Angry Gamer ^ | June 11th 2018 | Billy D
    For all those Sony fanboys who at one point argued that Ellie from The Last Us wasn’t actually a lesbian, and that the interracial kiss she shared with her dying friend in The Last of Us: Left Behind was just a moment of intense emotional reactions. However, as revealed during this year’s E3 showcase, it was hammered home that Ellie is indeed a full-on, hardcore, need-no-man lesbian. The video cinematic mixes itself in with what Naughty Dog attempts to portray as in-game play, but it’s pretty obvious that the gameplay won’t be anywhere near as cinematic as it’s portrayed in...

    There's been a lot of talk lately about Twitter and Facebook being very unfriendly towards conservatives. What is to prevent a few people getting together and come up with a bigger and better platform for the masses? I know GAB was created, but there are problems with that platform that many will not go on it. I was only on the site for about 2 minutes after my first log in because there was just a lot of unnecessary junk streaming by. Perhaps they've changed and adapted. I realize this is probably a huuuuuge undertaking, but I am confident there...

    cnet.com ^ | June 11, 2018 | Mark Serrels
    When Bethesda announced it was showing off a new Fallout game at E3 this year, it was safe to assume that game would be the major focus of the show. That it would be what we were all be talking about afterward. That would have been normal. It's Fallout, for God's sake. But that wasn't the case. In what I'd call one of the best E3 conferences in recent memory, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI -- plus a whole new Elder Scrolls mobile game -- a new Doom, a new Wolfenstein, showed off Rage 2 and Fallout 76 (of...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 6/11/18 | Jim Bray
    In our increasingly divided and partisan society, it appears that some forces are stepping up their efforts to silence others, shutting down debate rather than taking part in it. It's a mark of folks who know they have no winning argument, so therefore have to project, obfuscate and name call rather than actually address issues. Snowflakes! This is nothing new, but in the Trump era – in which the losing side of the 2016 presidential election still thinks of itself as the side of goodness despite increasing evidence to the contrary – U.S. President Trump's efforts to drain the deep...

    Working from home certainly seems to be increasing in popularity, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does it mean you can stay in your pajamas, but you’ll also save money in gas and — perhaps the best part — no actual co-workers you have to pretend to like. Dozens of companies are jumping on the stay-at-home bandwagon, like Xerox, Philips and even The Disney Store. While many of these jobs are in customer service, some are for things you probably didn’t know you could do from home — like teaching. Qkids is looking for college students, teachers,...

    The housing crisis is a multi-faceted issue, based on problems such as the lack of land space, rising housing costs, and the fact not enough houses are being built. Yet, there could be a solution to the last one in the form of 3D printed homes. A city in the Netherlands, Einhoven, will be the first place in the world to have houses made by a 3D printer. Developed by the Dutch construction company Van Wijnen, in collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology, Project Milestone as it is called will see five homes built in total. These will be a...

    Some people looking to secure a career in the technology sector might fear they are at a disadvantage if they lack technical skills like programming. But according to the head of Google's co-working campus in London, technical skills are not a prerequisite. "When I first came into tech, I was like, 'Isn't that just coders?'" Sarah Drinkwater told CNBC in an interview this week. "And that perception is just not true. When I look at a great company, they've got an amazing business development person, they've got marketers, they've got sales people, they've got technical people — great companies need...

    Last year was the year of cryptocurrency in South Korea. Bitcoin, ethereum and other digital currencies took the country by storm, some nine years after the world's first bitcoin was mined. When we compiled our list of South Korea's richest last spring, cryptocurrency holdings were not on our radar. But in researching our new list, it turns out that seven members have been busy investing in crypto. In February Forbes ranked another Korean, Song Chi-Hyung, at No. 19 among the world's biggest fortunes based entirely on crypto, but he fell short in making the country's top 50 in overall wealth....
