A hacker affiliated with the notorious Anonymous collective has launched a series of cyberattacks against government portals in North Carolina to protest against the so-called 'bathroom bill' – which has been criticised by many as being anti-LGBT.Indeed, a number of businesses and high-profile celebrities have protested its advance into law – including Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams and Elton John.This type of cyberattack sends a tidal wave of traffic towards a single web server with the aim of taking it offline and is regularly used by Anonymous as a method of protest.Following the DDoS attacks, the hacker posted a JustPaste link that purported to hold a database compromised from the North Carolina State University www.ncsu.edu .The hacking group recently became embroiled in the ongoing US election campaign after planning operations against presidential hopeful Donald Trump.The latest campaign, however, looks set to continue.
The Finnish company has reentered the mobile phone and tablet markets on a global basis, now that Microsoft's control of its name has ended.The Nokia brand and its intellectual property will be licensed to HMD Global, a newly created Finnish company which will develop, produce and sell a range of Android smartphones and tablets.The new company intends to invest over $500m £345m over the next three years to support the global marketing of Nokia-branded phones and tablets.An exciting new chapterRamzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies, said in a statement on 18 May: "Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Nokia brand in an industry where Nokia remains a truly iconic name.Nummela says HMD will be "completely focused" in creating a "unified range of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, which we know will resonate with consumers...our business model is centred on the unique asset of the Nokia brand and our extensive experience in sales and marketing."Nokia recently announced plans to buy Withings, the smartwatch and smart bathroom scale maker, and is currently producing the Ozo, a £43,000 camera rig which can shoot 360-degree video and audio, intended for virtual reality film making.
You can go right now to your nearest shop, slam down a credit card and purchase Nathan's Drake's last adventure.No one cares whether Indiana Jones does his own laundry or which Chinese takeaway is his favourite.Yet, somehow, Naughty Dog have managed to make a short domestic sequence Drake shares with his wife Elena one of the most exciting and engaging parts of the whole Uncharted 4 package.When you consider that this is a game where you travel the world looking for hidden pirate treasure in an effort to save your estranged brother, that's quite an achievement.Based on all of the crap Nate and Elena leave lying around in their bedroom, and the towel hanging over the shower curtain in their scruffy bathroom, the couple seem pretty comfortable in each other's company.Dirty plates sit in the sink ready to be washed, a pet hate of mine that caused me to judge Nate and Elena appropriately.
Even if your green thumb has wilted away, this super easy tip will help you keep your succulents alive.Not even the hardiest of plants are truly unkillable, but many can survive constant neglect as long as you stick them in the right places.Taryn Williford at Apartment Therapy relays some vital information she learned from the floral and decor shop Sage Market Design:Succulents in the purple and orange color family prefer the outdoors.They will prefer your patio or deck to your darker rooms.Succulents that are really very green will do better indoors.So there you have it, some will fare better in your bathroom, office, or kitchen, while others really do need to get regular sunlight and airflow.
We like this device, but a cheap and simple improvement would make it even better.SnapPower also offers Duplex-style cover plates, which have two openings and one mounting screw.I nonetheless still had trouble getting the prongs to slide over the screw terminals on the sides of the receptacle, an exercise unnecessarily rendered more difficult because the SnapPower Guidelight doesn t have retention washers on the screws used to secure it to receptacle.To its credit, SnapPower s online user manual offers detailed troubleshooting steps to get around all the complications it mentions, and I was eventually able to mount the Guidelight after some impatient grumbling.It s a terrific addition to my hallway that my guests in particular appreciate, because it s right outside the guest bathroom.SnapPowerSnapPower s website shows a lot of examples of installations, such as in the kitchen and bathroom, that probably won t work in the real world if your home is up to code.
When the first Apple stores opened in 2001, people stood in round-the-block lines to be the first inside, and the first to experience Apple s iconic design language given form and space—an iPod reproduced in bricks and mortar.The company is trying to give the impression that these are not just places to hand over money in exchange for pieces of beautifully designed pieces of glass and aluminum, but spaces to come and hang out.The sparkly, reflective, terrazzo floors bounce natural light around the store, which should keep the indoor trees happy, and cut electricity usage.They can be heated, like a fancy bathroom, or chilled, which the company thinks is going to be the more frequent scenario.Apple s iconic Geniuses who had to deal with 1 million appointments in San Francisco alone last year will be supplemented with new Creative Pros, who ll give demonstrations of more things we can spend our money on, from camera lenses to drones to music downloads.Alongside the grove is the Avenue where new accessories are on display; the Forum, where a giant video wall will facilitate everything from game night to workshops with invited creative types; and the Boardroom, where small business, start-ups, and app developers can share wisdom.

On a personal level, my biggest commitment is to children's health where I built two children's hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland.So this issue is not my personal issue.And you better be committed to being their partner in many different type of situations that are life situations, and this is one of them."The current battleground is Northern Carolina's transgender bathroom law, which has gained national attention, including Benioff's ire and the ire of over 80 other corporate CEOs, as well as the entertainment industry.CEOs need to "step up"North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest called him a "a corporate bully," and said that someone from San Francisco shouldn't be telling North Carolina what to do.Of course, Benioff isn't alone in condemning this law — the state's own attorney general called the transgender bathroom an "embarrassment" and said he wouldn't defend it.The law forbids transgender people from using a public bathroom based on their gender identity and limits the laws local governments can pass based on sexual identity, its critics say.Benioff told NPR that Lt. Gov.Forest is "wrong."Because our governmental leaders tend to be a little weaker than they were, CEOs need to step up and be a little stronger," he says.Benioff has also been an activist on equal pay for women, starting at his own company.NOW WATCH: This smart earpiece translates languages as they are spokenLoading video...

It can also let you know when your dog wants to go out to run, play, and even go to the bathroom.But the best part is that as you keep using the tracker, it learns your dog s behavioral patterns and becomes more accurate.Based on these patterns, the app can say, OK your dog is not feeling well on this day in regards to other dogs in the same breed and weight class, and it will give you tips and whether you should go to a veterinarian or not, founder Artan Mansouri told Digital Trends.Mansouri says his company, which operates under a team of 10 people in Sweden, is working with a professor of zoology to build and curate a database of dog breeds.Unlike traditional trackers that have a GPS chip and require a SIM card to track your dog, the Tracy Trackers device uses a base station that s installed in your home and connects to your Wi-Fi.It pairs with the tracker on your dog s collar, but the base station has a range of up to around six miles.
A Thai chap's "morning routine of a shower and protracted bowel movement" was rudely interrupted earlier this week when a 4-metre python clamped its laughing gear round his todger as he squatted over the throne.According to an eye-watering report by Khaosod English - some pics quite possibly NSFW - Atthaporn Boonmakchuay of Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok, had just settled down to his "morning business" when the beast emerged from the crapper and latched onto the end of his penis.While understandably screaming, the bleeding 38-year-old did have the presence of mind to call to his missus Sawittree Shooyoung to bring a rope, which he used to lash the serpent's head to the bathroom door.In an equally sensible move, he extracted his manhood by carefully unhinging the reptile's jaws, rather than "forcing it free and risking permanent damage to his self".The victim was whisked to hospital apparently intact, while skilled operatives liberated the python from the bog by removing the entire toilet and smashing it with a hammer.The creature will be released into the wild, we're assured.
Keeping your wedding dress clean until you walk down the aisle can be a challenge, especially when you re all dressed up...and then you need to use the bathroom.Luckily, protecting your wedding dress is easy: all you need is a large garbage bag.When you need to use the bathroom, grab a bag and a bridesmaid to help you balance and stuff your dress into the bag.Put your feet through the bag smaller opening at the bottom , keeping them close together.Once you have the bottom of the bag around your waist and the bottom of your dress safely encased in the bag, you re ready to use the bathroom without risk to your dress.Make sure you use one hand to hold the bag and dress up.
Jimmy Kimmel took Donald Trump to task over the ongoing controversy over transgender bathroom use this week.When Kimmel noted that his previously stated views conflicted with most of the GOP, Trump once again re-iterated many of the same vague and unspecific thoughts he offered in a May 16 Washington Post interview, but somehow came across as even more unsure of anything related to the issue — including his own feelings.What really I m saying is — and I think it s pretty simple — let the states decide, Trump said.After Trump noted that most of the Republican party generally believes that whatever you re born, that s the bathroom you use, Kimmel pressed him yet again in regard to his personal views on the issue.Kimmel asked, adding, I think you do.Editor s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
Or find a shower robot would be less intrusive than help in the bathroom of strangers, he says. Erik Lundqvist, General Manager, Robot Valley in Västerås where there are several companies developing technology for elderly care, agree with the positive things that robots can contribute. - Both the integrity and the increased quality of life are important pieces. It was the most bizarre I've heard, Total inhuman and hire more nursing assistants! The technology is supposed to not be a requirement but an option. The issue has also been on nyteknik.se and on our Facebook page.
The Associated Press has the full rundown:Attaporn Boonmakchuay was smiling as Thai television stations interviewed him in his hospital bed about the intimate intrusion, and doctors said he would recover.It gets worse:The 38-year-old told Thai TV Channel 7 that he struggled to remove the snake for 30 minutes Wednesday before he managed to free himself with help from his wife and a neighbor.The snake apparently slithered into the unlucky man s plumbing system, where it was still hanging out when emergency workers arrived.A local newspaper reported that the man-snake-loving snake was sent back into the wild, where it will no doubt continue to wreak havoc.Enhance:Doctors said that Attaporn Boonmakchuay will likely recover barring any infection, but if the bite had gone into the urinary tract, it would have been a big problem .Stunningly, he s not the only one to find a snake in his plumbing.
To help your doctor better assess your overall health, measure your waist size too.A big waist size matters because, even if you re not overweight or have a low BMI, it could indicate you have more fat stored around your abdominals, so-called abdominal obesity .According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, here are the guidelines that put you at higher risk of obesity-related conditions:A man whose waist circumference is more than 40 inchesA non-pregnant woman whose waist circumference is more than 35 inchesTo find out your waist circumference, use a measuring tape get it from a drug or fabric store and wrap it around your belly button.Consider taking these measurements first thing in the morning, after using the bathroom, and without a shirt on to keep measurements as accurate as possible.Make sure that the tape is horizontal across your waist and that it s not pulling tightly on your skin.Some say measuring waist-to-hip ratio is better, but Harvard School of Public Health Obesity Prevention Source noted their research showed that waist size alone and waist-to-hip ratio measurements were both equally effective.

Image Source: Jimmy Kimmel LiveThe presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday.As has become the norm for his talk show appearances, it was a relatively mellow affair, with Trump avoiding any of the colorful language or boisterous claims that draw crowds to his rallies all across the country, but there was one moment in particular that stood out like a sore thumb among the rest of the banter.DON T MISS: The iPhone 7 might actually be in troubleAfter joking around with Trump about his support for Hillary in previous campaigns, Kimmel asked the candidate what he thought needed to be done about the increasingly heated debate over transgender bathroom laws.Confusingly, these points seem to contradict one another, as many states would inevitably decide not to protect the rights of that group.Kimmel attempted to cut through the noise by asking Trump a pointed question about whether or not he, as a voting citizen of New York state, would vote to allow a transgender individual the right to choose an appropriate bathroom.They proceed to go in circles for a few seconds until Kimmel finally asks Trump what the right thing to do is in this situation.
