The question of whether Piltdown was real can only ever be answered with evidence, and there’s no evidence here.

And yet it’s the oldest explanation for this phenomenon in literature since the creation of the scientific method .

How did Piltdown Man prove to be so far removed from living people (and also so far from living trees) that we do not even recognize a tree-like structure today?

It’s been an open question of debate for centuries. In its original form a number of hypotheses were proposed on what the man must have looked like. One of the most detailed and famous such theories was the theory that Piltdown Men were, in fact, the descendants, descendants of, and descendants of the first humans. In fact the theory was very widely believed to be true during the 1700’s and the original manuscript of Piltdown Man was supposedly written from an account written in the 1830’s. As is so often the case with theories that were believed to be true in the past, they don’t stand up. It’s not necessarily a question of whether the theory is wrong or not – it’s simply asking how well it holds up. It turns out that the theory has a little problem: it’s hard to get to the root of anything if nothing grows there. The most direct way you can search for a tree’s roots is by looking for the actual root where a trunk, or most branches, would be. The “best” way to find the roots are through the whole branch, with the entire tree to probe. As a result, the theory has a lot of problems. It is generally known to include an exaggeratedly large number of mutations which have been associated with specific traits, like redheads. It also makes a very big deal out of the idea that humans have had contact with these people and their behavior as closely tied to us today as the modern practice of making up religion. And it requires that you assume an enormous amount of uncertainty in finding the roots of a tree, which can only be done with modern technology. But the most common explanation of what a tree “looks like” is what most people have called the “Giant Trees” hypothesis. The Giant Trees hypothesis states that there are many different sized trees in our world, all of which are actually just trees of the same kind. However, very large trees are rarely found on Earth. Most of the Earth’s trees are large and extremely old. The large trees are, thus, very different sizes and are always, by definition, only as big as trees that the larger trees lack. Therefore, the “Giant Trees” theory argues, the Giant Trees must be those types of trees. But given that it has been well established that, for example, New Jersey’s largest forest area is actually only home to several small trees, and that there are other large forest areas with much smaller tree diameters, one would have expected a very clear distinction for such a large difference. The giant trees must be the ones on Earth with the largest diameters, and that leads to an entirely different interpretation of the “Giant Tree” hypothesis. In other words, the explanation that is the most likely to be true if the Giant Trees hypothesis is supposed to be true is actually a false one if the Giant Trees hypothesis isn’t. The Giant Trees hypothesis provides a more plausible explanation for something that has been so often believed to be true and is the most widespread explanation of trees on Earth for the last 100 odd years, but in doing so leaves out the vast majority of the population at a much grander scale that are the “ordinary” humans and other large life forms! The Giant Trees hypothesis just doesn’t work like that. Why? Well, why? Well, the Giant Trees hypothesis doesn’t help explain the giant size that most people recognize as a tree when compared to most of the trees of Earth. Because it’s hard to find the roots in a tree. So, this makes it impossible to do direct visual comparisons with all other types of trees. They don’t have a huge branching structure. They don’t have many branches branching out in all directions, and they don’t have lots of flowers and leaves. If Piltdown Man was a Giant Tree, it would definitely have lots of flower and leaves, which is one of the most obvious signs that he is a human. But that doesn’t really fit the hypothesis. So how can you even guess this kind of Giant and how can you identify trees of this sort as human? Piltdown Man didn’t have the right kind of tree body, or the right kind of tree to get enough sunlight in at the right time of day. Piltdown Man just wouldn’t have had the right kind of tree (and definitely not the right time of day), and that just would not fit the hypothesis. So why all the fuss about it? And why do we believe what we believe? Why do we believe in the Giant Trees hypothesis? In a sense, one answer that would be interesting and fun to explore is that, even though trees

They are also more likely to be stolen than the average vehicle and the cost of repair isn’t covered by insurance. If you don’t think people should get more insurance with more cars, it doesn’t help to tell you that the problem is that no one is paying enough money in accidents. If you don’t believe in saving your own life, you shouldn’t be taking people’s lives that are too precious to spend on repairs.

  1. We won’t even use the same technology we’ll use in 2 years… we’ll just use it better

I’ll take the idea that you might not do anything because it was better in 2014 over the idea of using next year’s technology than next year’s technology was. This is the most obvious of the arguments against car sharing. No-one will do it! There will be massive economic incentives for sharing in the same way that we have been rewarded for buying car maintenance and car buying. When we were first learning about car sharing, it was seen as much more of an opportunity for a new home than it was for an emergency car. However, we have figured out how to actually make cars work, and the economics of the idea make sense.

  1. More vehicles means more congestion.

That’s true, but only in the sense that people driving more is going to use more of our roads. It does not mean that people will need more infrastructure. This is a perfectly sound argument, since we don’t have to be able to sit down and talk about the congestion we will all experience in the next 5 to 10 years. The people who are making this argument think we should give up cars for the sake of our infrastructure because we think they would want the technology to increase it. We’ve proven this in a lot of cities, and the people who are getting more cars tend to be those who buy them. It’s like I said, a perfectly sound argument.

  1. The more vehicle sharing, the less insurance you have… that’s because you’re a smart person and you understand your car better than the people who don’t

You know those ads that promote gas station loyalty cards? “Buyer beware: If you can’t trust your car, who do you buy it from”? My response to those ads is, “well, as long as you’ve got insurance.”

  1. Drivers will need to pay for gas to get to work at their job.

Now, I’m not saying that we should put all of the public transportation systems out of business. There are a lot of benefits to going to work with public transit, and a lot of benefits to biking instead of driving to work. But there are major consequences of having these systems and having to have to pay for it on the way to work. The people who make the arguments for cars owning on a car share and needing more car sharing are saying things that these people can really only understand on the level of their car ownership. They’re not saying this to make you feel better about not owning a car. They’re saying it because of the fact that they already have the “knowledge” that is so necessary for their argument.

  1. I need to be able to drive this many miles everyday.

The reason they want more car sharing is because they think having your car means you’re taking advantage of that technology. It also gives those of us who prefer sharing more power over people who don’t. Just because you can drive a car that’s 20 years old and it’s probably been through a lot of dirt doesn’t mean you should get a free pass, especially in terms of getting to work.

The news comes along with a video that’s worth seeing.

Now back to the release timeframe.

The following is sourced from Nintendo’s Investor Relations website , an area typically reserved for the company’s most recent, most anticipated releases.

On July 25, 2018, we will release our latest title, the title you all know and love! With that said, the new details to come with the game won’t be released until our next quarterly financials are released.

Thanks to Nintendo Financials for allowing us an early glimpse at that, as that should have come straight out of the mouth of the CEO.

To further help understand the nature of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition , here is a little more from the latest quarterly filing.

“Street Fighter V Champion Edition The following details relate to a sequel to Street Fighter V for the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch version of Street Fighter V will contain new gameplay features and story elements. New game modes include 4 versus 1, team battles and tournaments, as well as online gameplay. As part of its new online gameplay, in addition to the usual online features, the Nintendo Switch version of Street Fighter V will also allow players to play the game in a similar way to how they view Street Fighter V without sacrificing the depth of gameplay in order to enjoy it on the go.”

I guess the title has a new multiplayer mode - maybe a matchmaker system for those of us on the go?

We will have to wait and see, but I can’t wait to see the new Street Fighter V .

Are you excited for the game? Let us know in the comments!

Samsung is continuing on its new strategy of embracing robotics to bring their smart TVs to life. They have just introduced an innovative new set-top box which will allow a Samsung TV to control a small robotic arm that lets you control your TV. The Samsung Smart TV can control all the parts on the TV, from changing settings and switching inputs, to adjusting the brightness and color of your TV.

Samsung said the new Home TV Box which was unveiled during their recent press conference is ready for developers to build apps for Samsung Smart TVs and will be available for the first time later this holiday season, possibly in late January. The Samsung Smart TV Box is expected to run on the Android-based OS Tizen, adding a host of hardware features Samsung is known for, including HDR for higher contrast and less noise, the first Tizen-based set-top box capable of 4K HDR video streaming. The new Samsung Smart TV Box also includes Android and iOS application integration to deliver video and data services to your home via your smartphones, tablets and Smart TVs.

The Samsung Smart TV comes pre-loaded with a collection of apps ranging from motion sensing and remote controls to access to video cameras and gaming. Tizen-based Smart TVs will support all Samsung apps; Tizen-based Smart TVs that support apps from Google, Samsung and Amazon can not be programmed to support these apps.

Samsung claims that it is one of the most productive TV manufacturers in Asia with over 3,000 workers, which is expected to double to 3,800 in 2018, with all part of that increase coming from expanding into Southeast Asia. Samsung’s growing presence in Southeast Asia is seen in the recent launch of Samsung MOLLE for their smart TVs, Samsung’s recent move into the U.S. to build their own showrooms is not unlike Sony’s recent purchase of AMC Networks and the growth of the TV industry is very much in sync with increasing sales in the region.

In a follow-up post on Google and Motorola’s relationship, we noted how the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and other Google devices will have access to the Pixel’s Google Assistant which is present on other Google devices like the Nexus 6P. We noted that the Pixel 2 and 2 XL are still not yet supporting “Pixel Launcher” and the “Google” screen (aka Google Assistant). Other devices are likely to be added before the end of the year.

We can expect to see other phones supporting this version soon.

As for this post-launch update, you can start it up in any way you want. It does NOT impact your existing backup. For those interested in the details, the update includes a new default theme, the “G” theme for a few phones (the S7/S7 edge is apparently the only G one that doesn’t have this option enabled), Android 5.1.1 Oreo, security updates, more Google apps, and a bunch of minor bug fixes - please do NOT upgrade to any new ROMs until Android N is finished and Google+ is updated.

However, according to a report from The Register UK , the exploit is not in its final form or it has not been tested against Intel processors. These reports suggest that the researchers are still at work, however we are in no situation to know what the research team were able to extract from the target. Intel’s patch has been implemented on some of their processors for several years now and it has been acknowledged for its effectiveness. However, an attack using the latest exploit could have a massive impact, not only on the targeted consumer with their PC, but potentially also on the computers of other organisations looking for systems which are vulnerable to backdoors, malware, or data leaking backdoors. On the other hand, we do not think that the attack will have the same impact as the latest Intel patches have on consumer devices, since the devices themselves are not targeted and are not at risk. In any case, the attack is quite serious on a technical level, since it has to date been unable to use any of Intel’s security patches to exploit the attack, despite Intel providing the necessary patches in their security bulletin after the vulnerabilities were disclosed the most recent December 2016. If the latest patch is not available then the attack may not find any other way to access Windows or other security tools such as MS14-048. There were also reports of the attack using a different form of encryption, but these too have not been able to be confirmed. Intel’s patch is the one that has helped stop the exploit from working in the past, however, if they do not have a patch that can disable this new attack then the vulnerability may find a place in a future attack.

The Register comments : What’s more, those who attempt to download the exploit can also download the same file without the patch. So this is not a mere patch and so can still be used for a second attack. Indeed, the Microsoft Security Bulletin said:

“In order to protect organizations, we have released patches to address vulnerabilities in WinMTR v1.1.7 and v1.1.8. If users have installed or are considering installing these patches (including non-current installations), they are encouraged to upgrade to those versions before installing any other products or updating to this bulletin.

He’ll bid $1.48 million for the ranch of 865 acres north of the Hollywood and Highland malls, for which he is selling. He expects to sell about 700 acres in Westwood, where there are apartments, warehouses, a horse farm and a horse training center. He has bought a 50-acre block that lies west of the Beverly Center and west of the Hollywood and Highland (including the Hollywood Forever Plaza) for $1.15 million. And he’s asking $3.04 million for a one-acre ranch near Santa Monica, which includes a 3.6-megawatt turbine generating station and a 1.5-megawatt solar array. Since March 2, Criss has sold 25 lots. Last month, he sold the 975-acre Santa Ana County ranch northeast of Malibu for $2 million, and he may sell a 700-acre farm northwest of the Malibu Airport.

Last week in Bel-Air, Michael Douglas got a raise from his third wife, singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani, not enough to stop his divorce from actress Sienna Miller. Douglas is asking $1.1 million for his new Bel-Air home, which includes a 1,000-seat country music theater where they have been married for 31 years, and it includes a guest house, pool, and a guest house with tennis court and a guest house with a pool and a barbecue. He has seven cars and he sold the two others that were in the mansion.

The actor is also in negotiations to buy a Bel-Air house for his second wife, model Jennifer Aniston, but she has not commented on the news.

The $7.6-million listing for Tijuana’s 548-acre J. J. Chater Ranch. The home was built in 1919 as a gift to a Mexican landowner to be used by her to sell to the Mexican railroad, but later used for cattle ranching and even became the home of actress Kate Millett’s mother. “For the benefit of the community, I purchased the ranch and offered to return it to its original function,” said J.J. Chater in an April 10 release. “I can guarantee that a person interested in acquiring the estate would obtain the required consent of the community prior to taking possession and that the home would be restored to its original function.”

The listing for Los Feliz’s 5,600-acre Lodi Ranch. The tract is near a gas station, gas station near a playground, playground, gas station, several restaurants, two churches, a playground, a high school and elementary school, several businesses–including a grocery store, a jewelry shop, a meat and eggs market, a pet store, a shoe repair shop, a beauty salon, a massage parlor–and a home. The ranch became a private private community with 14 single-family homes, and the home of an ex-husband is also near the ranch.

Also last month, “The Apprentice” actor Matt Damon is asking $1.1 million for the estate of his mother-in-law, Rosemary Gallman. Last Tuesday, he sent his agent, Rob Weinrich, a letter outlining the reasons why– and the $1.1 million figure is up for auction. Weinrich has been doing this for several months now, and he sold a home for $250,000 at the end of March. “I think Damon will do well by bidding,” said Weinrich. Last spring, the actor bought the former home of actress Connie Chung which she rented to the restaurant chain Yum-Yum in 2009. Damon also has a mansion in Chatsworth, a two-story house in Bel Air, a five-bedroom house near Beverly Center and another house in Hollywood.

Last week on “The Jeff Ross Show”, Ross noted that “everyone is going to love” his home in Beverly Hills, but “it’s still a mansion.” We don’t know what that means, but at least it’s on view.

In the U.S., Apple is still the leading hardware and software supplier and the sixth largest software company worldwide by revenue. Apple also happens to be the number one consumer electronics brand, according to Brand Finance. Apple already has over 2,000 hospitals and medical centers listed as test sites, and the number of healthcare facilities has been growing by more than half year-over-year for four consecutive years.” The Verge Apple Maps will replace search in Apple’s iOS 6 app this autumn, an update that will reportedly remove Google Maps integration entirely.” “With the introduction of iOS 6 for iPhones and iPads, Apple Maps will replace search in the App Store app store, a big move that will make the app a lot less of an integrated part of iPhone users’ mobile environment, meaning that Apple may be more inclined to focus on what it calls ‘iOS experiences.’ While a little bit of the mapping may be retained, Maps users will have less data to sift through, and will get less information from the app than they would get from Google Search or Microsoft Bing,” notes the Verge . “Apple is offering a new “Help Center” to help users stay safe and with their doctors,” says The Wall Street Journal, explaining why the new iOS maps apps are not yet showing up in iPhone users’ iTunes libraries. “If you go to the Apple menu, tap on ‘Help,’ and then ‘Apps, then Find & Try,’ you’ll be able to load the app and see a few things from the apps, like how the app has been used at the local Apple Store,” says ABC News . “Apple is the number one consumer electronics brand, according to Brand Finance.” More: Apple is still the leading hardware and software supplier and the sixth largest software company worldwide by revenue. Apple also happens to be the number one consumer electronics brand, according to Brand Finance.

And so the inevitable is happening: Apple is going to give us a whole lot of cool Google Maps goodies on our iPhone! The reason why I don’t think they should release them on the web at this point is twofold: first, it gives the impression that they have a better implementation than Google, and secondly (and the point of this rant) that they only made that sort of move in that one app. This point is hard to substantiate, or at least I never did (until now), but it’s on record as being the case.

As to what this means for us who don’t care enough to read about iPhone-related news, I’ll be the first to offer my opinion on if they truly think that’s so. Either way, I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all now.

The internet is like a giant, open-air laboratory for bad guys, so it’s no surprise that we’ve got our own version of what might be called viral warfare .

So I’ll be writing a long article later on how the NSA has tried to keep track of smartphone users and their location and other features over the years, and in an earlier article I talked a little about the problems with Google Maps for tracking people based on their location, and about how the NSA might be able to gain access to location information from the smartphone operating systems in order to track phones . That’s still the first part of a long piece, so lets just talk about the second part so we can start with what actually happened with smartphones and their tracking.

Back in 2007, when Google first launched YouTube, one of the things Google promised was that it would be safe, secure, and private to use. But Google and its partners went on to show that this promise was an imposter’s dream and the NSA’s global surveillance machine came to bear on both Google, its users, its partners, as well as users worldwide.

The NSA used this initial promise and took advantage of the inherent privacy and security in smartphones, with one of the most basic of rules that smartphones always ask for user authentication. So the first thing a smartphone asks for is for a username and password. This is so it knows if it’s already used the user’s real name and this is used to help users keep their real identity from being revealed, or worse yet, it could allow the NSA to access any private information that’s on the smartphone like whether someone is gay, cheating on someone, or simply trying to keep a low profile.

Another security measure that’s used for security purposes is that whenever you’ve authenticated, the device encrypts all private messages, such as “hello” or the number of your contact list. This ensures that when you enter your phone number, it is always private. And even in some cases we have seen the usage of this encryption: when I entered my phone number, but with the username that I used to authenticate, I was given a fake username to enter. Because my phone number was encrypted, I never had to reveal it. Just by typing in my phone and username together, I could send my password, which is the same as a lot of my other information, such as my email address via text. Because so many apps have this built in, it’s a simple way to use a generic phone number. As a security concern, most people don’t make it a habit to put their phone number into all of their apps, though this is still something that’s easy to do.

So when did smartphones start being a target for snooping? In a sense, all smartphones are always on, with every app running on every device. Even the latest smartphones have built-in microphones, flashlights, cameras and other sensors that are always pointed at them some more than others. This means if ever you try to find something by simply looking at a phone, you’ll find yourself with a list of contacts and conversations that you can track. However, if you turn on location services, it also acts as additional privacy feature by asking for permission and adding local storage as a location.

Now to be fair, I’ve written before about why the government is constantly looking for ways to track and snoop on people, and by using technologies like location services can often get around most of it. But the point stands this is an absolute threat to user privacy, and there are lots of ways to reduce it. Unfortunately, the government hasn’t taken action either in the way it’s done to date.

The US Congress just passed a bill called the Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act. It is an attempt to ban adult websites from accessing your web history, and the fact that the bill specifically mentions “candy bars and games” in regards to web cookies only shows that the fact this is a backdoor way to access things that the government wants is only going to increase. Even Apple has come out and acknowledged that this is going to help government agencies hack things. It’s going to further make it more difficult for people to remain anonymous online, and make it much easier for the government to gain access to their data and information.

So let’s return to my first question: Why would it be necessary for the government to have access to your location in the first place?

What I have discovered in being a student of history is that the first world wars are the reason we have government surveillance powers. They started out being just a way to spy, and have turned into more of an arms race. In the last hundred years, the powers to spy on people have only grown, and they are still using it in different ways today than they did back then and I think this is a really big issue in human history. Because of it, at all times and all places, the right to privacy has always been considered the “inalienable right” and is also the

For a start, it’s absolutely packed full of well-known names. I’ve seen a few interviews, and he was quoted as saying the best performers on the show are those of Irish heritage , and in particular, those of Irish descent.

The main draw for me though has been the cast the character he leads. The acting on display is nothing short of breathtaking. The young actors bring out an authentic Irishness and charisma that really stands out to me. A lot of fans might not agree, but I find his portrayal of Frank Darabont, as a troubled young Dubliner, to be a very compelling character. I found the dialogue to be very moving and authentic, and I enjoyed the fact that I wasn’t watching a straight man on a show that was predominantly straight male characters.

If you’re going to take a look at it, I highly recommendthe “The Show of Shows” - a website which aims to provide reviews of shows in their entirety, and which I encourage people to check out as their own personal showcase of what really makes good television.

On a final note, the show does have a distinct influence on the way I think about shows in general. One thing I’ve noticed is, the more stories and subplots are involved, the “borrowed” ideas and creative input is harder to track down as it gets dragged out and pushed into the background of the story.

I won’t hold this against the show in and of itself though. My favourite episode of the first season is one called “Rumpole Bumblebee” (the pilot episode), and in particular, there is a subplot of a gang of bobbies looking for a murder victim that seems to be nothing as bad as it seems. They find one, after an event far outside the show’s usual focus, and a quick investigation leads to the discovery that this murder could have been committed by a local drug cartel. The gang is looking for this very type of subplot, but instead they get a far more compelling one!

So, that’ll do it for me - “ Game of Thrones “ is a great show for anyone who is in the mood for something exciting and well run. A great, well acted show which I found to be very interesting, and with a strong cast that would be able to work well together as a unit. It’s a shame that it doesn’t seem to go anywhere, however, as the show seems set to continue for several seasons and I think it’ll be more interesting to see what comes after the Season 7 end.
