A new website called Track Trump has launched to monitor the progress President Trump makes on fulfilling his promises for his first 100 days in office.At the end of October, Trump released a plan called Donald Trump s Contract With The American Voter, which focuses on cleaning up Washington, protecting American workers, and restoring the rule of law.The site was designed, developed and launched over the past few weeks, according to Y Combinator president Sam Altman, who is one of the creators of the new, online dashboard.Along with Altman, Track Trump was built with help from Alec Baum, who previously worked on Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign; doctoral student in public administration Peter Federman; and developer Gregory Koberger, founder of ReadMe and a former Mozilla Corp. employee.According to the Track Trump homepage, the site s creators felt it was important for citizens to be able to understand and follow in real-time the policy changes that will impact their lives, the introductory message explains.Track Trump says it will avoid covering these tweets and other public statements, in favor of focusing on the policy changes that actually take place.

If Sony's $3,000 camera proves itself at this level, it could change how movies are made.Sony s $3,000 A7S II mirrorless camera is well known for its incredible low-light ability and great 4K video.While the camera and others of its ilk are beloved by students and independent filmmakers for their compact size and relative affordability, rarely do such devices make it onto large-scale productions, least of all as A cameras.But for its upcoming horror film Cadaver, Screen Gems a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment decided to shoot the entire thing on the A7S II.Not only is the A7S II right for my studio production, executive producer Glenn Gainor said in a statement, but it will help democratize storytelling around the world because it is a powerful camera accessible to people who may not otherwise be empowered to tell their story.Much of the supporting gear was also prosumer grade, including Redrock Micro rigs and follow focus units, monitors from SmallHD, and Atomos Shogun 4K HDMI recorders.

Maailman suosituimman videojakopalvelun perustaja näkee, että tehokas kommunikaatio syrjäyttää turhan verkossa notkumisen.YouTuben ex-toimitusjohtaja ja toinen palvelun perustajista Chad Hurley näkee massiivisen informaation määrän ongelmana, joka tulee johtamaan ihmisten vastareaktioon.Suuri määrä tietoa ja sisältöä on ongelma, koska sitä on vaikea hallita ja se vie keskittymisen pois asioista, joilla on oikeasti merkitystä , Hurley sanoi Tukholmassa järjestetyssä Nordic Business Forum -seminaarissa.Hänen mukaansa kaikkialta pursuava tieto estää jo ihmisiä lähtemästä toteuttamaan ideoitaan ja yrittämästä.Nettiä selatessa tuntuu, että kaikki on jo keksitty, eikä mitään kannata enää yrittää.Itse suosittelen blokkaamaan kaiken sen ja tekemään omaa juttua.

I söndags gick Försvarets radioanstalt, FRA, ut och kommenterade cyberhotbilden mot Sverige i en intervju med SVT.Nyheten: 100 000 nätattacker har skett mot Sverige, från utländska spioner, under 2016.När Computer Sweden ber FRA reda ut vad de till synes dramatiska siffrorna egentligen visar, understryker FRA:s talesperson Fredrik Wallin att han inte talat om attacker.Siffran gällde antalet "it-aktiviteter" som man kunnat spåra till utländska statliga aktörer.Och aktiviteter är inte samma sak som attacker – bara det sker någon form av nätkommunikation mellan en känd angripares ip-adress och en ip-adress i Sverige räknas det som en aktivitet.– När det kommer till it-säkerhet måste man klargöra vad det är vi räknar, och vi räknar på aktiviteter.

The U.S. Department of Labor has just sued Google in an attempt to get the Mountain View tech giant to cough up compensation data for an audit of its compliance with federal labor laws.The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs had in September asked Google to submit particular information, according to a news release Jan. 4 from the labor department.As a federal contractor, Google must agree to permit the federal government to inspect and copy records and information relevant to its compliance with the equal employment laws, the labor department said.Despite many opportunities to produce this information voluntarily, Google has refused to do so.We filed this lawsuit so we can obtain the information we need to complete our evaluation.The suit was filed Jan. 4.A Google spokesperson said the firm was very committed to its affirmative action obligations and had worked hard to comply with the audit, providing hundreds of thousands of records over the past year, including some related to compensation.But a handful of requests at issue in the lawsuit are overbroad in scope, or reveal confidential data, the spokesperson said.These requests include thousands of employees private contact information which we safeguard rigorously.

Lawks, when are you going to stop banging on about boring bargain blowers?There s too many people out there who ve gradually been wangled onto a top-whack contract and then been encouraged to forget that £60-a-month is a shipload of cash.I like my big phone, and so I pays the big money.Oh, but the direct debit devil has his horns thrust deep into your essence.Cast off your contractual shackles for a moment and think on the ways you could spend a handful of tens extra every month.You could have both Netflix and Amazon, or those guitar lessons, or a petrol-paid trip to the seaside.
