Boston is a city so blue it s practically navy—and that blue resembled nothing quite so much as a deep bruise the night Donald Trump was elected president.The cracks started to show on Election Night.A mom started a thread asking how everyone was going to explain the results to their children—to their daughters—when they woke up on Wednesday.And, since this is the internet, a new thread sprang up, outraged.I was dismayed to realize that the entire very thoughtful and I thought very respectful thread about how to explain the election results to our children, has been removed, and is no longer available online, a mom wrote.Another said she d been a member for 10 years but was now considering leaving the group.

While sacked union leader asks for documents to be releasedThe central staff committee at the European Patent Office EPO has asked again for the organization's Administrative Council to take action against its president Benoit Battistelli, citing the dismissal of the secretary of its staff union as the final straw."We are skeptical about the real motives behind the dismissal of yet another elected staff representative and union official," the open letter PDF to the 36 members of the EPO's top body reads."We are also very concerned that four more staff representatives and/or union officials are allegedly going to be targeted soon with investigations that may lead to further disciplinary procedures."As a result of Battistelli's actions, the EPO "remains in a state of social turmoil and perceived lawlessness that risks compromising irremediably the reputation and continued existence of our Organisation," the letter argues, adding that the council "has to take action: this can no longer be delayed."Staff protests at EPO offices have been joined by national politicians and the Dutch government is due to hold a special debate on the matter.

National Geographic s new TV miniseries Mars has a message for the people of Earth: Colonizing the Red Planet is not a pipe dream.Unfortunately, in the first few episodes at least, that message smothers the show s ability to tell a good story.Mars is much more enjoyable when it s not trying to cram facts, figures, and carefully scripted interviews down our throats.Part documentary, part science fiction, Mars chronicles humanity s journey to colonize the Red Planet by mixing real-life interviews with a fictional story, beginning in 2033, about the first crewed mission to the surface aboard a spacecraft called Daedalus.The trouble with its first two episodes, which aired on November 14 and 20, is that they are so fixated on making humanity s journey to the Red Planet feel real there seems to be little bandwidth left for developing interesting characters.Early on, the fictional story is told documentary-style, relying heavily on voice overs and fake interviews with the six-person crew who—perhaps a bit too realistically—sound like they re reading scripted responses written by the International Mars Science Foundation s PR team.

Doktor Crichtons apparat för att upptäcka världar utan atmosfär.Bild av konstnären Nick Simpson i hans projekt Bumforth Manor , en fiktiv samling bortglömda fotografier från 1800-talet.Den tanken är i fokus på Discoverymuseet i brittiska Newcastle.Tänk om mycket av tekniken fortfarande skulle drivas av ångteknik, om förbränningsmotorn aldrig hade uppfunnits.Nära släkt är neo-viktorianismen, som använder estetiken från andra delen av 1800-talet i ett nutida tekniskt sammanhang.De här två genrerna finns redan inom populärkultur som musik, film och konst.

Deric Lostutter, as seen in July 2016.On Wednesday, a federal judge in Kentucky approved Deric Lostutter s motion to plead guilty to two of four counts in a hacking case that has been stretched out over four years.As a result, he could face years in prison.In July 2016, prosecutors formally accused Lostutter of hacking a Steubenville, Ohio high school football team website, as alleged retribution for shielding teenager rapists.Lostutter was indicted on four counts, including conspiracy and making a false statement to the FBI.Presumably, this means that counts two and three, which cite the notorious anti-hacking Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, will likely be dismissed as part of a plea deal.
