Protesters Shut Down D.C.A large crowd of protesters has descended upon a northeast neighborhood in Washington, D.C., taking over the streets, on Saturday night in a symbol of solidarity with their counterparts in Ferguson,... Missouri, who called for justice for Mike Brown earlier during the day The Washington protesters chanted "Whose streets? Mike's Streets" and "We're young, we're strong, we're marching all night long" as they walked down H Street northeast, at one point hitting the Bladensburg Road intersection, with police not far away. "H Street shut it down, racist cops, shut it down," they sang while shaking tambourines, clapping and drumming.

In 2002, Fox cancelled superhero TV show The Tick just eight episodes in. Now, over a decade later, Amazon Studios is giving the show a second chance. According to The Wrap and People, star Patrick... Warburton (Rules of Engagement, Ted, Seinfeld) has made a deal with rights holders Sony Television to produce a pilot for a rebooted version of The Tick. In the original show, Warburton played the Tick -- a big, blue, and clumsy parody of a superhero. The series was based on a comic of the same name, and a successful '90s animated kids show featuring the hero pre-dated the failed live-action effort on Fox. The show was favorably received by critics at the time -- and has since garnered a bit of a cult following -- but was cancelled before...

Camera Phone Up At Concerts Instead of Paying Full Attention. It's rather obtrusive for fellow concert-goers — no one wants to watch the stage show from the viewpoint of your smartphone screen To avoid pissing off people, some tech-savvy patrons at the Made in America festival are using tiny GoPro cameras, which have grown in popularity over the past few years. Though not entirely unobtrusive, Delaware natives Lily Dubroff, 17, and James Magnani, 18, put their stick-mounted GoPro to the test during DJ Cassidy's midday show at the Liberty Stage at Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Basically,... it's a baseball strategy called the infield shift — but taken to an extreme that looks odd to even the most seasoned baseball observer See also: Absurdity at USC: How Did Josh Shaw's Bogus Story Get Out? The infield shift typically moves a defensive player over to the right side of the field between first and second base to protect against left-handed hitters who tend to pull the ball in that direction. While it's an uncommon move, it's not unheard of to see three guys playing defense between first and second base in certain situations — but four? That's plain weird.

An anonymous reader writes: Narcotic painkillers aren't one of the biggest killers in the U.S., but overdoses do claim over 15,000 lives per year and send hundreds of thousands to the emergency room.... Because of this, it's interesting that a new study (abstract) has found states that allow the use of medical marijuana have seen a dramatic reduction in opioid overdose fatalities. "Previous studies hint at why marijuana use might help reduce reliance on opioid painkillers. Many drugs with abuse potential such as nicotine and opiates, as well as marijuana, pump up the brain's dopamine levels, which can induce feelings of euphoria. The biological reasons that people might use marijuana instead of opioids aren't exactly clear, because marijuana doesn't replace the pain relief of opiates....

From Rodeo FX, this "Game of Thrones" special effects reel shows all the amazing work the company did on the series for Season 4. From revealing how they created Meereen and thousands of Unsullied to the gorgeous shots of Stannis' army invading Mance Rayder to the baby and the Night's King. If this doesn't prove just how visually amazing "Game of Thrones" is, nothing will. [h/t EW]

Apple's new "trash can" Mac Pro is pretty wild, but Alienware might have just snatched back the title for craziest desktop PC with its new Area-51. Gone is the rectangular tower desktop of old -- in... its place, Alienware's made a funky, hexagonal machine. Similar to Apple, Alienware claims the design for its new desktop has some practical benefits beyond just looking insane. Since the back of the desktop isn't perpendicular with the floor, the company says you can push the unit up against the wall without blocking its all-important ventilation. Hardcore gamers should take note that the Area-51 will ship with Intel's newest 6- and 8-core Haswell-E processors, and it can handle up to three monster, double-wide graphics cards. Just what you...

Ask Slashdot: Best Phone Apps?

Slashdot - 30 Aug 2014 20:12
An anonymous reader writes: The phone app ecosystem has matured nicely over the past several years. There are apps for just about everything I need to do on my phone. But I've noticed that once an app... fills a particular need, I don't tend to look for newer or potentially better apps that would replace it. In a lot of areas, I'm two or three years out of date — maybe there's something better, maybe not. Since few people relish the thought of installing, testing, and uninstalling literally hundreds of apps, I thought I'd put the question to the Slashdot community: what interesting, useful new(ish) apps are you aware of? This can be anything from incredibly slick, well-designed single purpose apps to powerful multi-function apps to entertainment-oriented apps.

4.7-Inch iPhone 6 Built FromYesterday, we shared a video and some photos from Feld & Volk [Instagram page] apparently showing a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 built from parts actually booting to the "Connect to iTunes" recovery mode screen.... A Tweet today from developer Steven Troughton-Smith points out that the graphics shown on the display during this booting process "*seem* to confirm" John Gruber's arguments in favor of the device being equipped with a 1334 x 750 display at the same 326 pixels per inch density of previous Retina displays. More specifically, the evidence points toward an approximately 667 x 375 point display, which would presumably arrive in the form of a 2x Retina display at 1334 x 750 as Gruber suggests. Sparked by Troughton-Smith's observation, we have independently examined photos of the booting device...

Two Days Previously

Bad Astronomy - 30 Aug 2014 17:57
Heh. What was the view like two days before the video I posted this morning? This: So. COOL. That's the Orbital Sciences Corporation's Cygnus resupply ship (the Janice Voss) at the end of the space... station's Canadarm 2, then leaving in a hurry in this time-lapse video taken on Aug 15, 2014. The resupply ship brought well over a ton of supplies to the astronauts, and had been reloaded with trash. It was unberthed by the remotely-controlled arm (operated by Alex Gerst on the ISS), then commanded to head off. Two days later, it burned up re-entering Earth's atmosphere. Watching this video I noticed a peculiar thing: It appears to go up, away from the Earth, instead of down toward it. I suspect this is at least partly due to the pictures being taken with a wide-angle lens, which distorts the...

Teen With Amazingly Long Neck To Undergo Surgery (PHOTO)

The Huffington Post - 30 Aug 2014 15:00
Teen With Amazingly Long NeckSurgeons are helping a teenager save his neck by shortening it. Fu Wengui, 15, of Beijing, is preparing to go under the knife because he's reportedly caused immense pain by the three extra vertebrae... in his neck. The teen has 10 vertebrae in his neck while the average person has seven, according to Quirky China, which released photos of him at the hospital. The vertebrae compress his nerves, making it difficult for him to walk. "When he was six he was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis and abnormal chest frame," Wengui's father, Fu Genyou, told agency. Congenital scoliosis is a spinal deformity caused by abnormally formed vertebrae, and usually occurs in early development, according to the Scoliosis Research Society.

Coffee production generates a great... amount of wastewater, which is released untreated into rivers, affecting aquatic fauna and flora and downstream communities. A key problem is that coffee wastewater comes along with tons of organic waste and high toxicity, which affects the soil and generates greenhouse-gas emissions, particularly methane. An international push to address the health and environmental problems caused by coffee wastewater may now turn out to be a milestone in tackling the issue, with Central American farmers using coffee wastewater to generate energy.

Why Aren't We Farming Octopus?

Mashable - 30 Aug 2014 14:15
Why Aren't We Farming Octopus?Octopuses grow quickly, have lots of tasty flesh and are found all over the world. As the world's supply of fish diminishes while the number of humans keeps increasing, it seems these creatures would... make an ideal mass-produced food for our hungry mouths. So where are all the octopus farms? The main thing that prevents octopus farming at large scale is that the common octopus - Octopus vulgaris - is tough to feed in captivity, especially when first born. After hatching, octopuses first exist as tiny organisms known as paralarvae, drifting around the upper ocean in among clouds of plankton which they feed on. It is this stage - before they become fully fledged young adults and descend further into the sea - which is hardest to replicate in aquaculture.

How to see what Google thinks you like

Android Central - 30 Aug 2014 14:09
How to see what Google thinksGoogle Ad Settings and how to tailor them to you Google brings us wonderful services and the Android ecosystem, but let us remember that its primary function is as a search engine. And secondarily... it's to sell ads -- and targeted ads, at that. And there's nothing inherently wrong with that, as ads keep on the lights at Google and keep the lights on for many, many sites around the world wide web. And targeted ads help keep the stuff you'd never, ever spend money on away from your eyeballs. But how does Google know what you want to see? How do those ads target you, and what does Google think you like? And how can you change it if they're wrong, or if you think they're wrong to do it in the first place? Let's dive into the wonderful, wonderful world of ad optimization.

Swan Dive

A couple of weeks ago I posted a dramatic picture (above) of the Orbital Sciences Cygnus resupply ship, the Janice Voss, burning up on re-entry after a successful mission to the International Space... Station. Yesterday, astronaut Reid Wiseman posted an incredible Vine video of the event. Watch this! Wow. I mean seriously, wow. That's video of a spaceship burning up as seen from above by astronauts on a space station orbiting the Earth. People keep complaining that we don't have flying cars. Those people are silly. The future: We are in you.

However, there's more to this refresh than just shock value. It's actually a futuristic aesthetic with a rather purposeful design behind it. Today Alienware gave a sneak peek at their completely redesigned Alienware Area 51 desktop system. This refreshed system is unlike any previous Alienware rig you've seen. With a trapezoidal shape to its chassis, Dell-Alienware says you can place the Area-51 against a wall and not have to worry about thermals getting out of the control. That's because there's a controlled gap and a sharp angle to the chassis that ensures only a...
