The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other. Charges and springs To draw an analogy from classical physics, one may say that websites are electrically charged bodies, while links between them are springs. Also, an analogy can be drawn from quantum physics. Anyway, the real algorithm of plotting The Internet map is quite far from the analogies given above.

LESLIE: Now we’ve got Lavonne in Iowa on the line with a floor-refinishing question. How can we help you today? LAVONNE: Yes. I have 1,350 square feet of engineered hardwood floor. It has been refinished twice and you know what? It’s looking pretty tough. TOM: You know, it’s very unusual that you’ve been able to refinish it once. One thing I can suggest, Lavonne, is this. LAVONNE: You know what? TOM: Right. LAVONNE: And then there’s scratches, of course. TOM: OK. LAVONNE: Right. TOM: And that might be enough for you to get a new finish to take. LAVONNE: I know and you know what? TOM: But that said, I don’t understand why somebody wants to charge you so much to take out what’s there. LAVONNE: You know what? TOM: In most cases, you would not glue down engineered floor; it would float. That said, there’s no reason you can’t put a second layer over that. LAVONNE: So would you lay something in between? TOM: Yeah, it’s always floated; engineered always floats. LAVONNE: Alright. How to Refinish an Engineered Hardwood Floor | The Money Pit How to Refinish an Engineered Hardwood Floor | The Money Pit
The Crossings at Holcomb Bridge Rentals - Roswell, GA The Crossings at Holcomb Bridge Rentals - Roswell, GA I would never recommend this apartment complex to anyone. I have been living here only 6 months and regret the decision. They have so many rodents such as roaches, rats, snakes and frogs. The first day I moved in we saw our first roach, then another one, and another one. Come to find out it wasn't just our apartment but everyones.
Deerfield Village Rentals - Alpharetta, GA Deerfield Village Rentals - Alpharetta, GA I was based out of Atlanta for a 6mos fellowship program and initially made it clear in writing I would be in the Atlanta area for no more that six months to this complex. I can say living at Orion has made my training more stressful. Upon moving in I noticed that the Ipod docking station does not work entirely, only the radio works. In addition to not working it was stained with sauce. The carpets were not vacuumed; I have short blonde hair and no animals, no roommates and I found a ton of long black hair throughout my carpets in the main room and my bedroom. The space between the stove and the counter is full of crumbs of who knows what and how long they have been there.

Information discernment, information transparency

The most interesting question about 2016 is not why the Brexit result and Trump happened, but whether historians will regard both as incidental; whether this will go down as the year democracy revealed itself unworkable in the age of the internet – in which reality, already engaged in a life-or-death struggle with inverted commas, finally gave way to “alt-reality”. The results of these votes were shocking, but not surprising. The rules of capitalism have been gamed by the ruling kleptocracy and a lot of working people are angry. No mystery there. Very few people saw this coming. How did we get here – and was/is this situation inevitable? There’s a technocratic side to the information problem as well. O’Neil’s book describes the malign effects of the “opaque, unquestioned, unaccountable” algorithms – known as algos – that began in finance but now mediate every aspect of our lives, including what we see in our Facebook news feeds.

One Monday morning last September, Britain woke to a depraved news story. The prime minister, David Cameron, had committed an “obscene act with a dead pig’s head”, according to the Daily Mail. “A distinguished Oxford contemporary claims Cameron once took part in an outrageous initiation ceremony at a Piers Gaveston event, involving a dead pig,” the paper reported. The story, extracted from a new biography of Cameron, sparked an immediate furore. Then, after a full day of online merriment, something shocking happened. “We couldn’t get to the bottom of that source’s allegations,” she said on Channel 4 News. Oakeshott went even further to absolve herself of any journalistic responsibility: “It’s up to other people to decide whether they give it any credibility or not,” she concluded. Does the truth matter any more? “The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected,” Cameron declared. How did we end up here? The truth is a struggle.

SpaceX aims to launch internet from space - Daily Bouncer, Latest Headlines, Todays News Headlines, Current Breaking News, Latest News TodayDaily Bouncer, Latest Headlines, Todays News Headlines, Current Breaking News, Latest News Today Private rocket firm SpaceX has applied for government permission to launch satellites that will provide global broadband internet access. In a filing to the US Federal Communications Commission (FFC), it laid out details about its plans for a 4,425-strong satellite network. It is one of several companies aiming to deploy satellite-based internet services over the next few years. SpaceX suffered a setback in September when a rocket exploded. In a statement, the firm said: “Once fully deployed, the SpaceX system will pass over virtually all parts of the Earth’s surface and therefore, in principle, have the ability to provide ubiquitous global service.” The satellites would orbit the planet at altitudes ranging from 714 to 823 miles (1,150 to 1,325 km). Analysis – Jonathan Amos, Science correspondent SpaceX has talked about its telecoms ambitions for a while. Now, under a deadline to file interest with the FFC, the company has given a more technical glimpse of its proposal.

Company Data Under Attack: What Can You Do to Protect Yours - Daily Bouncer, Latest Headlines, Todays News Headlines, Current Breaking News, Latest News TodayDaily Bouncer, Latest Headlines, Todays News Headlines, Current Breaking News, Latest News Today The people who are responsible for creating security threats are always trying to stay one step ahead of the people building programs aimed towards stopping them. It doesn’t matter how advanced a security program becomes. It will still fall short where it counts. This is why security companies are always trying to strengthen and update their programs. They want to make it, so people don’t have to worry about their data being compromised or their computers no longer functioning as intended. Secure Data Recovery is a company that’s on the forefront of helping people clean up after catastrophic data loss. Apple is a company that knows a thing or two about technology. Any company who’s dealing with threats, whether they’re hackers, ransomware, or viruses, should rest easy knowing they have consulted with experts like Secure Data Recovery and their data won’t be at risk, even if something happens that might leave its continued presence in doubt.
Your eyes aren’t blue (or green) because they contain pigmented cells. As Paul Van Slembrouck writes for Medium, their colour is actually structural, and it involves some pretty interesting physics. As he explains, the coloured part of your eye is called the iris, and it’s made up of two layers - the epithelium at the back and the stroma at the front. The epithelium is only two cells thick and contains black-brown pigments - the dark specks that some people have in their eye is, in fact, the epithelium peaking through. The stroma, in contrast, is made up of colourless collagen fibres. Brown eyes, for example, contain a high concentration of melanin in their stroma, which absorbs most of the light entering the eye regardless of collagen deposits, giving them their dark colour. Green eyes don’t have much melanin in them, but they also have no collagen deposits. Blue eyes are potentially the most fascinating, as their colour is entirely structural. It’s pretty mind-blowing stuff. This is how blue eyes get their colour
A paradox is a statement or problem that either appears to produce two entirely contradictory (yet possible) outcomes, or provides proof for something that goes against what we intuitively expect. Paradoxes have been a central part of philosophical thinking for centuries, and are always ready to challenge our interpretation of otherwise simple situations, turning what we might think to be true on its head and presenting us with provably plausible situations that are in fact just as provably impossible. Confused? You should be. The Paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise is one of a number of theoretical discussions of movement put forward by the Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea in the 5th century BC. Logically, this seems to prove that Achilles can never overtake the tortoise—whenever he reaches somewhere the tortoise has been, he will always have some distance still left to go no matter how small it might be. Imagine that a family has two children, one of whom we know to be a boy. 10 Mind-Boggling Paradoxes
