In 2001, director Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko opened in a small number of theaters and quickly vanished.The film, a cryptic comedy about a troubled teen and the supernatural rabbit who urges him to act out, would have been a hard sell at any time, but was particularly unwelcome in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.In the intervening years, however, Kelly has seen the film slowly blossom into a cultural phenomenon.“It’s come a long way from being a failure to being a cult film to now, I believe, being something that everyone has heard about, and that’s a wonderful thing,” Kelly says in Episode 249 of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.He says he was never really happy with the color and detail levels of previous scans, and he’s excited for fans to be able to see this new version in theaters.“This was a film that was barely released on screens in 2001, in a very limited way, and a lot of people have never seen it on the big screen,” he says.

Approximately ten thousand times each day, the DNA in our cells receives some damage, but most of that damage is repaired by our cells' built-in DNA repair systems.A recent paper published in Science shows that a chemical used in the DNA repair process, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD ), has a concentration that declines with age.The team behind the paper used human embryonic kidney cells (which grow well in the lab) to look at the role of this chemical.The authors found that NAD binds to the protein “deleted in breast cancer 1” (DBC1), which—as its name implies—was previously implicated in cancer.To test this proposed mechanism in a living organism, the authors used aging mice.With its decline, DBC1 was increasingly binding to and shutting down the DNA repair enzyme.

Disciplinnämnden konstaterar att informationen om att Hexagons vd frihetsberövats misstänkt för insiderhandel utgjorde insiderinformation för bolaget.Reglerna, som i dessa delar hänvisar till EU:s marknadsmissbruksförordning, anger som grundregel att insiderinformation ska offentliggöras så snart som möjligt, skriver Nasdaq Stockholm."Hexagon har, enligt vad utredningen visat, den 26 oktober 2016 fattat beslut om att skjuta upp offentliggörande av gripandet och de misstankar som riktades mot verkställande direktören med hänvisning till att information som då förelåg var sparsam, motsägelsefull och föränderlig.Enligt disciplinnämnden var emellertid den information som bolaget fick del av på morgonen den 27 oktober 2016, en nordisk arresteringsorder avseende den verkställande direktören, tillräckligt konkret för att Hexagons legitima intressen inte skulle skadats om bolaget hade informerat om att bolagets verkställande direktör på grund av misstanke om insiderbrottslighet hade gripits.Förutsättningar att skjuta upp offentliggörande av insiderinformationen förelåg således inte vid denna tidpunkt varför offentliggörande skulle ha skett så snart som möjligt", skriver Nasdaq Stockholm.Disciplinnämnden finner vidare att det pressmeddelande som Hexagon offentliggjorde på morgonen den 31 oktober 2016, med information om häktningsbeslutet, saknade väsentlig information om hur bolaget avsåg att hantera vd-frågan med anledning av häktningen samt hur den löpande förvaltningen var tänkt att se ut i verkställande direktörens frånvaro.

The investigation that found big brand adverts appearing alongside ISIS propaganda is slowly morphing into a nightmare for Google, as more mammoth companies join the government in putting their digital spends with the search company on hold.The latest business to stop transferring millions into its Google Adwords account is Marks and Spencer, which explained: "In order to ensure brand safety, we are pausing activity across Google platforms whilst the matter is worked through."M has been joined by McDonald's UK in the Google protest too, with McDs' UK team saying it is also pausing ad spend with Google to "ensure brand safety" by making sure no ads for meat sandwiches appear alongside beheading videos.Sky News says that Google execs apologised to the government after Friday's meeting to explain why ads for governmental services were appearing alongside extremist content, with Google apparently booked in for another meeting with the government's ad bosses this week.Where it will talk about how it's going to apply all of its apparently wonderful AIs and algorithms to the seemingly easy job of not serving ads for dresses and milkshakes next to ISIS bomb tutorials.Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?

Kriisi autojakopalvelu Uberin ylimmässä johdossa syveni viikonloppuna, kun yhtiön hallituksen puheenjohtaja Jeff Jones erosi tehtävästään sunnuntaina.Jonesin mukaan hän lähti yhtiötä koskevien ristiriitojen ja yhteensopimattomien odotusten vuoksi.Jonesin ero on isku yhtiölle, koska hänet rekrytoitiin Uberiin nimenomaan pehmentämään yhtiön karkeaa mielikuvaa, kirjoittaa Reuters.Eron taustalla on uutistoimistojen mukaan ollut myös se, että Uberiin haetaan nyt uutta operatiivisten toimintojen johtajaa, minkä Jones koki epäluottamuksena.Uberia johtaa yhtiön toinen perustaja Travis Kalanick, joka joutui aikaisemmin tässä kuussa pyytämään anteeksi käytöstään sen jälkeen, kun hän oli rähjännyt Uber-kuskille.Kuski videoi keskustelun, jonka oli käynyt Kalanickin kanssa ja jossa Kalanick haukkui yhtiölle kritiikkiä esittäneen kuskin kiittämättömäksi.

In February 2015, when videos emerged of Daesh (ISIS) ransacking the Mosul museum in Iraq, Morehshin Allahyari decided to act.An Iranian-born artist, whose work explores the implications of 3D printing, she began recreating the destroyed statue of King Uthal of Hatra, dating from the Roman Period, and released the 3D file online.However, as digital recreations of destroyed artefacts started to proliferate - notably a 3D print of Palmyra's Arch of Triumph, mounted in London's Trafalgar Square last year - she became concerned.To Allahyari, the growing practice of organisations such as US-based digital archiver Cyark selling access to their 3D files verges on a new form of "digital colonialism"."If ISIS takes over this ownership of cultural heritage by destruction," she says, "the other side of it is this simplistic, utopian Silicon Valley [approach].Their claim is, 'We are saving the cultural heritage of the world' - actually, you are selling a product."

We've all seen films, startups, authors, or other brands "blow up" or be "everywhere".This is obviously a function of hitting multiple outlets and marketing channels in quick succession, but I was wondering if this is a studied or established thing.Is there a threshold to this effect?If so, how would you quantify it or create shortcuts for a project/client?

You will soon no longer need to find some friends to amble down the East Sea road.Funforge is preparing to release Tokaido, its first digital adaptation for one of its board games, on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets “within the next 10 days,” a company spokesperson said over email.The publisher has sold more than 250,000 copies of Tokaido since its debut in 2012, and it’s been nominated for a number of awards.It’s the latest board game to join others in the digital world, such as Talisman — a game that has half a million active players on mobile, PC, and PlayStation 4, according to its developer, Nomad Games.The digital version includes modes where you can play vs. the AI or others, including local multiplayer where you pass the device from one person to the other.“Funforge wanted … to discover Tokaido with a new point of view and give the opportunity to larger players to discover the board game and, of course, the app,” Funforge said.“The app also permits [players] to learn the board game rules, as they didn’t change.But Funforge wanted to propose a real video game experience, not just a porting.”In Tokaido, players walk down the board — the East Sea road — from Kyoto to Edo, and the goal is to make the journey “as fulfilling as possible.” Along the way, you sightsee landscapes, eat food, buy souvenirs, visit temples, and soak in hot springs, earning points.But many players say it’s more about enjoying the journey, not winning the game.
