Tyndall Report | Year in Review 2015 ABC's NEW FORMAT (2015 vs 27-yr avg) NEXT YEAR's PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION… 2015 was a lackluster year. The top story was nothing more important than an unusually snowy winter. The economy set unnewsworthy records -- the least coverage of the last 28 years. The federal government attracted precious little attention too, despite successful negotiations to halt Iran's nuclear program. Paradoxically, ABC responded to this slow news year by revamping its format to emphasize breaking, often local, news. With the political mood energized both by Trump's nativism and by Black Lives Matter protests in Baltimore, this was the database's third-heaviest year for Race-&-Immigration, led by an influx of refugees in Europe, and racist murders in a Charleston church. The Most Newsworthy Man of the Year was Donald Trump, the would-be wall builder against Mexicans. TOP 20 MOST USED REPORTERS (Anchors excl)

Though these games are closed-source, they are still playable in Linux through Wine. Recently, I have tried a few free and open-source RTS games and was really impressed with some of them.

If you are into real-time strategy gaming, I highly recommend you check out these Free and Open-source RTS games: Warzone 2100Warzone 2100 was originally released in 1999 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation. Although Warzone 2100 is comparable to Earth 2150 in many significant respects, it does contain certain unique aspects that clearly differentiate the two, including various radar technologies, a greater focus on artillery and counter-battery technology, more frequent in-game cinematic updates as gameplay progresses, and customizable vehicle designs.

All About Project Management Project management is a carefully planned and organized effort to accomplish a successful project. A project is a one-time effort that produces a specific result, for example, a building or a major new computer system. This is in contrast to a program, which is 1) an ongoing process, such as a quality control program, or 2) an activity to manage a series of multiple projects together. In some countries, the term "program" refers to a software tool and the term "programme" can mean a TV or radio show. Project management includes developing a project plan, which includes defining and confirming the project goals and objectives, identifying tasks and how goals will be achieved, quantifying the resources needed, and determining budgets and timelines for completion. Projects usually follow major phases or stages (with various titles for these), including feasibility, definition, project planning, implementation, evaluation and support/maintenance.

“Intellectual Dark Web” – Basics Eric R. Weinstein, 12. Jan : Just making up an initial private list for myself as to who my “Intellectual Dark Web” would be.
