President Obama Should Pardon Edward Snowden Before Leaving Office
  Source: Slashdot 2016-06-27 17:31:48 (27 minutes ago) 
An anonymous reader writes from a report via The Verge: Ever since Edward Snowden set in motion the most powerful public act of whistleblowing in U.S. history, he has been living in exile in Russia from the United States. An article in this week's New York Magazine looks at how Snowden may have a narrow window of opportunity where President Obama could pardon him before he leaves office. Presumably, once he leaves office, the chances of Snowden being pardoned by Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump are miniscule. Obama has said nothing in the past few years to suggest he's interested in pardoning Snowden. Not only would it contradict his national security policy, but it will severely alienate the intelligence community for many years to come. With that said, anyone who values a free and secure internet believes pardoning Snowden would be the right thing to do. The Verge reports: "[Snowden] faces charges under the Espionage Act, which makes no distinction between delivering classified files to journalists and delivering the same files to a foreign power. For the first 80 years of its life, it was used almost entirely to prosecute spies. The president has prosecuted more whistleblowers under the Espionage Act than all president before him combined. His Justice Department has vastly expanded the scope of the law, turning it from a weapon against the nation's enemies to one that's pointed against its own citizens. The result will be less scrutiny of the nation's most powerful agencies, and fewer forces to keep them in check. With Snowden's push for clemency, the president has a chance to complicate that legacy and begin to undo it. It's the last chance we'll have."

Jeremy Corbyn was a political accident when he became Labour leader last year.

He took part in the referendum campaign that came to such a dramatic conclusion on Thursday, ostensibly on the
“Remain” side, but belatedly, half-heartedly, and with the air of a man who was just pretending.

If they look into a mirror and whisper “microaggression, microaggression, microaggression,” a student activist will appear and attempt to eat their brains while screaming buzzwords—“Marginalization!

“She’s also said to be worried about how her pick could affect congressional elections in 2018, at the midpoint of her presidency should she win the White House. Her political calculus underscores how closely linked she believes her success as president would be to having her party in power on Capitol Hill.”

Trump ally Scott Brown suggests Elizabeth Warren take DNA test to prove heritage
  Source: Boing Boing 2016-06-27 17:00:18 (59 minutes ago) 

After Elizabeth Warren accompanied Hillary Clinton today on the campaign trail in Cincinnati, Ohio, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown brought up the ol' not-a-Cherokee routine once again.

Brown said on a call with the RNC that Warren was not Native American, an accusation he's recycled since 2012, when the two were both vying for the same senator seat. According to Politico:

At the height of the 2012 campaign, it was reported that Warren had listed herself as having Native American roots at Harvard University. Soon, there was a “full-blown campaign frenzy,” Warren recalls, with Republicans demanding that she prove her Native-American roots and accusing her of getting her job at the elite university by making false claims about her personal background.

Today, Brown brought up the tired accusations, once again asking for proof, this time suggesting she take a DNA test. According to the Washington Post:

"As you know, she's not Native American," Brown, an early Trump endorser, told reporters on a conference call organized by the Republican National Committee. "She's not 1/32 Cherokee...Harvard can release the records, she can authorize the release of those records, or she can take a DNA test..."

Recently, Trump, never to miss an opportunity to question or make fun of one's race, has repeatedly called her "Pocahontas."

Never in recent politics has the topic of heritage played such a prominent role during the presidential campaign cycle, which has only just begun.

Google Launches 'Project Bloks' Toys To Teach Kids To Code
  Source: Slashdot 2016-06-27 16:51:41 (1 hours ago) 
An anonymous reader writes: Google has launched a hardware project dubbed 'Project Bloks' to help teach kids how to code. There are three components to the learning experience: Brain Board, Base Boards, and Pucks. The Brain Board features a processing unit that is based off of Raspberry Pi Zero, which controls and provides power to the rest of the connected components. It does also interact with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices. The Base Boards are connective units that let users design instruction flows. Finally, the Pucks are the components you interact with. They're shaped with switches, arrows, buttons, dials and more, and can be programmed to turn things on or off, move avatars, play music, and more. What's neat is you can record instructions from multiple pucks into a single one. Some of them can be made with simple, inexpensive materials like paper with conductive ink. You can watch the official introduction video on YouTube. Google did release a subsequent video about the project called "Developing on Project Bloks."

Enlarge / A premature announcement by Sun's then-CEO Jonathan Schwartz might have doomed ZFS on OS X. (credit: Photo by Justin Sullivan / Getty — Edited by Aurich Lawson)

This article was originally published on Adam Leventhal's blog and is reprinted here with his permission.

I attended my first WWDC in 2006 to participate in Apple's launch of its DTrace port to the next version of Mac OS X (Leopard). Apple completed all but the fiddliest finishing touches without help from the DTrace team. Even when it did meet with us, we had no idea that it was mere weeks away from the finished product being announced to the world. It was a testament both to Apple's engineering acumen as well as its storied secrecy.

At that same WWDC, Apple announced Time Machine, a product that would record file system versions through time for backup and recovery. How were they doing this? We were energized by the idea that there might be another piece of adopted Solaris technology. When we launched Solaris 10, DTrace shared the marquee with ZFS, a new filesystem that was to become the standard against which other filesystems are compared. Key among the many features of ZFS were snapshots that made it simple to capture the state of a filesystem, send the changes around, recover data, etc. Time Machine looked for all the world like a GUI on ZFS (indeed, the GUI that we had imagined but knew to be well beyond the capabilities of Sun).

“Since Mr. Trump essentially clinched the GOP presidential nomination in May, amid widespread popularity of his proposed ban among primary voters, he has gradually moved away from a blanket religious ban and toward a more nuanced policy targeting countries with a record of terrorism.”

FACT SHEET: Expanding the Tech Economies of Communities across the Country

Obama Administration announces winners of $150 million in TechHire Partnership grants, including $126 million for at-risk and disadvantaged young Americans 

Today, Vice President Biden and Department of Labor Secretary Perez announced the release of $150 million in Department of Labor grants for 39 partnerships across the country. With these funds, awardees will launch innovative training and placement models to develop tech talent, as a way to keep and create jobs in local economies. In addition to federal funding, grantees are leveraging nearly $50 million in philanthropic, private and other funding to contribute to their own local partnerships.

A Large and Growing Opportunity for Local Economies

Having a pipeline of tech talent can be an important factor in bringing new jobs to local economies, facilitating business growth, and lifting more local residents into the middle class. These grants will enable more communities to expand their own local tech sectors.

Tech jobs are a pathway to the middle class. Tech jobs pay one and a half times the average wage of a private-sector job. Studies have shown that these opportunities are also accessible to those without college degrees-- men and women with non-degree certificates in computer or information services earned more than 65 percent of men and women, respectively, with more traditional Associate degrees.  There is a large and growing unmet demand for tech workers. Today, there are over 600,000 open IT jobs across all sectors—more than two-thirds in fields outside the tech sector, such as manufacturing, financial services and healthcare. Across the country, employers are struggling to find skilled talent for these positions. A study from CEB found that in 10 major metropolitan areas (including New York, Atlanta, Seattle, and Houston), there are only five skilled job seekers available for every eight open IT jobs. Compared to 2010, it now takes employers five additional weeks to fill the average vacancy—at a cost to employers of $8.6 million per 1,000 vacancies.   New innovations in training and hiring can help meet the tech job demand. Nearly 40 percent of tech jobs do not require a four-year degree. In recent years, there has been a proliferation of fast-track tech training programs like “coding bootcamps” that prepare people with little technical know-how for tech jobs, often in just a few months. A recent survey from Course Report found that bootcamp graduates saw salary gains of 38 percent (or about $18,000) after completing their programs. At the same time, employers in cities like Albuquerque have been adopting new “skills-based” hiring approaches that enable job seekers to demonstrate their skills to get hired even if they lack traditional qualifications like computer science degrees.  Tech talent can be an important driver of local economic development. Companies report that one of the main factors in deciding where to locate is the availability of skilled talent. Moreover, research from economist Enrico Moretti shows that for each job in the average high-tech firm, five new jobs are indirectly created in local economies.

In response to this opportunity, in March 2015, President Obama launched TechHire, a bold multi-sector effort and call to action for cities, states, and rural areas to work with employers to design and implement new approaches like coding bootcamps to train workers for well-paying tech jobs often in just a few months.

Since then, 50 communities with nearly 1,000 employer partners have begun working together to find new ways to recruit and place applicants based on their skills and to create more fast-track tech training opportunities. These range from programs in New York City that connect low-income young people to tech training and internships to a program in rural Eastern Kentucky that teaches former coalminers to code.

The federal government is doing its part to support communities in this work with a specific focus on making sure that access to these innovations is widely shared, supporting best practice sharing amongst communities, and encouraging engagement of the key stakeholders that fuel a TechHire community -- including employers, innovative training providers and local workforce development leadership. As stakeholders help engage more employers and connect more local communities to these opportunities, the TechHire network will continue to grow.

More details on today’s announcements

Today, the Department of Labor is awarding 39 grants—totaling $150 million—for programs in 25 states and Washington, DC to support innovative ways to get workers on the fastest paths to well-paying information technology and high-growth jobs in in-demand sectors like healthcare, advanced manufacturing, and financial services. Of these grants, $126 million will specifically target strategies designed to best support young Americans, ages 17 to 29.

All of the partnerships funded today engage in the following practices:

1)      Expand access to accelerated learning options that provide a quick path to good jobs, such as “bootcamp”-style programs, online options, and competency-based programs.

2)      Use data and innovative hiring practices to expand openness to non-traditional hiring by working with employers to build robust data on where they have the greatest needs, identify what skills they are looking for, and build willingness to hire from both nontraditional and traditional training programs.

3)      Offer specialized training strategies, supportive services, and other participant-focused services that assist targeted populations to overcome barriers, including networking and job search, active job development, transportation, mentoring, and financial counseling.

4)      Emphasize inclusion by leveraging the high demand for tech jobs and new training and hiring approaches to improve access to tech jobs for all citizens, including out-of-school and out-of-work young Americans, people with disabilities, people learning English as a second language, and people with criminal records.

Building on Progress: President Obama’s Job-Driven Training Agenda

The TechHire Partnership grants build on progress already underway. Since the President and Vice President released their Job-Driven Training review in July 2014, Federal agencies have taken actions to make programs serving approximately 20 million Americans every year more employer-driven. And over the past 7 years, we have taken a number of steps to support the American workforce and prepare it for the 21st century, including:

Training Americans for jobs of the future. Through TechHire and Computer Science for All, the Administration is connecting Americans with the tech skills that employers are increasingly seeking, across many industries and roles.

Launching Computer Science for All. This year, the President unveiled his plan to give all K-12 students across the country the chance to learn computer science (CS) in school. This initiative builds on a growing movement led by parents, teachers, districts, states, and the private sector to expand CS education. To jumpstart this effort, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) have pledged to invest more than $135 million to support and train CS teachers across the country over the next five years. In addition, in his budget, the President has called for $4 billion in funding for states, and $100 million directly for districts, to train teachers, expand access to high-quality instructional materials, and build effective regional partnerships. Since its launch, nine states have taken action to expand access to CS education, the private sector has made more $250 million in philanthropic commitments, and more than 25 Governors have called on Congress to increase K-12 CS funding.

Making sure all Americans have a fair shot. The President has taken steps to expand and improve efforts to connect workers who have been displaced by economic change to the workforce system and into good jobs. Building on models of what works, these efforts have helped not only those affected by trade and globalization, but also by the aftermath of the Great Recession, by long-term changes in the energy industry, by the rapid rate of technological change and the adoption of new methods, and in communities that suffer from economic isolation and decline.

Securing a six-year extension and expansion of Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) in June 2015, which provides vital job training, income support and other benefits to American workers displaced by the forces of globalization. The number of estimated workers currently eligible for benefits and services is over 100,000, which is almost double the number of workers eligible for TAA benefits and services in all of fiscal year 2015 under the older program.  Helping the long-term unemployed get back to work and stay in the labor force, including through a $170M Ready to Work grant that supports partnerships with businesses to create a best practices for hiring the long-term unemployed. In addition, DOL is providing robust reemployment services and eligibility assessments through $200 million in grants to all 50 states and territories to help prevent long-term unemployment and connect jobseekers to the labor market. Through FY 2016, an estimated 1.3 million unemployed workers will be served.  Launching the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative, a Department of Commerce led effort bringing together 10 federal agencies to assist communities negatively impacted by changes in the coal industry and power sector with coordinated federal economic and workforce development resources that help communities diversify their economies and provide reemployment services and job training. Strengthening relationships with businesses to recruit and hire veterans. The Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) within DOL established an employer outreach team that encourages employment commitments from national and regional employers seeking to hire veterans.  VETS expanded the outreach team to connect with over 600 employers ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

Scaling Up What Works. The Administration has implemented a job-driven checklist that reorients job training grants to align with the elements that matter most to getting Americans into better jobs.

 Implementing the job-driven training checklist that reorients competitive job training grants to align with best practices based on elements that matter most to getting Americans into better jobs. To date, agencies have awarded over 15 competitive job-training grant programs that total more than $1.5 billion. Signing the bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the first reform of federal job training programs in nearly 20 years that reaches approximately 20 million Americans annually. WIOA improves business engagement, accountability, access, and alignment across training programs.

Doubling Down on Proven Strategies. The Administration is using evidence-based practices to direct limited Federal resources into results-driven models. For example, a recent study found participants in Registered Apprenticeship programs earned $300,000 more over their lifetimes than a comparison group.

Expanding Registered Apprenticeship programs through $265 million in targeted investments. Since the President’s 2014 State of the Union call to action, the United States has added more than 81,000 new Registered Apprenticeship opportunities, the nation’s largest increase in nearly a decade. Investing in training for dislocated workers that follows employer needs in key sectors. DOL has awarded nearly $300 million in Sector Partnerships and Job-Driven Training grants focusing on training dislocated workers. Sector partnerships are consistently cited as one of the most effective strategies to better align education with employer needs and have been shown through randomized evaluations to lead to higher rates of employment and earnings.  Investing $2 billion in the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant program that has created 2,300 in-demand education and training programs at community colleges in all 50 states. To date, nearly 300,000 participants have enrolled in these programs, earning 160,000 credentials.

Britain Backtracks as Panic Rises
  Source: Taegan Goddard's Political Wire 2016-06-27 16:21:27 (2 hours ago) 

New York Times: “Prime Minister David Cameron and the former London mayor Boris Johnson, members of the governing Conservative Party who were on opposite sides of the debate over Britain’s membership in the 28-nation bloc, both signaled on Monday that they hoped Britain could, while leaving the European Union, somehow maintain access to its signature achievement: the world’s largest common market.”

“But as the leaders of Germany, France and Italy met to discuss the fallout from the British referendum, there were no signs that the European Union would let Britain off the hook so easily.”

“The few countries that have been given access to the European free-trade zone without joining the bloc — notably, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland — all contribute to the European Union’s budget and accept its bedrock principle of free movement of workers, the very issues that angered so many of the Britons who voted to leave in Thursday’s referendum.”

Facebook Is Using Your Phone's Location To Suggest New Friends

Fusion's Kashmir Hill is reporting that Facebook is using your phone's location to suggest new friends. It's unclear exactly when the social juggernaut began doing this, but a number of instances suggest it only started recently. From the report:Last week, I met a man who suspected Facebook had tracked his location to figure out who he was meeting with. He was a dad who had recently attended a gathering for suicidal teens. The next morning, he told me, he opened Facebook to find that one of the anonymous parents at the gathering popped up as a "person you may know." [...] "People You May Know are people on Facebook that you might know," a Facebook spokesperson said. âoeWe show you people based on mutual friends, work and education information, networks you're part of, contacts you've imported and many other factors." One of those factors is smartphone location. A Facebook spokesperson said though that shared location alone would not result in a friend suggestion, saying that the two parents must have had something else in common, such as overlapping networks.While this feature could be useful in some cases, it could also be seen as a big invasion to users' privacy. Hill has succinctly explained a number of them..

Oral Contraceptive Use, Micronutrient Deficiency, and Obesity among Premenopausal Females in Korea: The Necessity of Dietary Supplements and Food Intake Improvement
  Source: PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles 2016-06-27 16:11:25 (2 hours ago) 

by Boyoung Park, Jeongseon Kim

This study addressed the associations between oral contraceptive (OC) use and obesity as measured by recording the body mass index (BMI) of premenopausal females, and possible interactions with micronutrient intake were considered. A group of 39,189 premenopausal females aged 35–59 were included in the analysis; they were in the Health Examinee cohort. Participant BMIs were calculated from anthropometric measurements, and females with a BMI≥25kg/m2 were considered obese. Individual OC use, age at first OC use, duration of OC use, nutrient intake, and other covariates were measured with a structured questionnaire. A multivariate logistic regression with an interaction term was applied to identify the odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) between OC use and obesity along with consideration of micronutrient intake interactions. OC use is associated with an increased risk of obesity (OR = 1.12, 95% CI = 1.04–1.20), and females who used OCs for more than 6 months over their lifetimes were more likely to be obese (OR = 1.15, 95% CI = 1.01–1.32) compared with those who used OCs for

Lifelong Vikings fan named public address announcer at U.S. Bank Stadium
  Source: StarTribune.com Top Stories 2016-06-27 16:01:33 (2 hours ago) 
Alan Roach, a Minnesota native and lifelong Vikings fan who has been the public address voice of eight Super Bowls and numerous other high-profile events, was announced Monday as the P.A. announcer at the new U.S. Bank Stadium. In an interview with Vikings.com, Roach said, “I’m just thrilled to do this. It’s the coolest thing I’m about to ever do.” Lest we downplay the significance of the in-stadium voice for a team, let’s remember the likes of Bob Casey (famous with the Twins for more than four decades) or Jules Perlt and Dick Jonckowski (longtime PA announcers for Gophers basketball). The right voice can set a certain mood and tone. Roach has a classic deep and smooth voice, which — when combined with a love for the Vikings he says extends back into early childhood — should play well at the new stadium. Roach was the longtime public address announcer of the Broncos, and on his personal web site he thanked Denver fans while also saying the Vikings job was the “opportunity of a lifetime.” You can read more about Roach here, as well as listen to a video compilation of his previous work.

Supreme Court Breakfast Table

First and foremost, HOORAY! The Supreme Court’s 5–3 decision striking down the Texas abortion restrictions is an unqualified, tremendous, and long overdue victory for abortion rights and the Constitution. It is a win for women—and also for families, men, children, and American society. It is also a win for our core constitutional values of liberty and equality and for the Supreme Court: The court could have done nothing but strike down the Texas law and still been consistent with its 1992 reaffirmation of the core of Roe v. Wade in Casey. As Walter noted, the court’s very integrity was on the line, and ultimately it did much more than the bare minimum that needed to be done.

A flash flood watch for 22 counties has been issued until Monday evening. Heavy rains could cause some streams to breach their banks.

New and Improved CryptXXX Ransomware Rakes In $45,000 In 3 Weeks
  Source: Slashdot 2016-06-27 15:31:44 (2 hours ago) 
An anonymous reader writes:Whoever said crime doesn't pay didn't know about the booming ransomware market. A case in point, the latest version of the scourge known as CryptXXX, which raked in more than $45,000 in less than three weeks. Over the past few months, CryptXXX developers have gone back and forth with security researchers. The whitehats from Kaspersky Lab provided a free tool that allowed victims to decrypt their precious data without paying the ransom, which typically reaches $500 or more. Then, CryptXXX developers would tweak their code to defeat the get-out-of-jail decryptor. The researchers would regain the upper hand by exploiting another weakness and so on. Earlier this month, the developers released a new CryptXXX variant that to date still has no decryptor available. Between June 4 and June 21, according to a blog post published Monday by security firm SentinelOne, the Bitcoin address associated with the new version had received 70 bitcoins, which at current prices is valued at around $45,228. The figure doesn't include revenue generated from previous campaigns.

Why is it that we often ignore hard data and go with our gut when making a decision? It’s especially true when it comes to estimating the probability of something. Are our brains just really mediocre when it comes to numbers or is there a reason for our misguided instincts?

The murder trial of Sarah Ferguson began in Utica, New York, last week. Ferguson is accused of participating in a group counseling session at the Word of Life Church that left her 19-year-old half-brother Lucas Leonard dead and her other half-brother, Christopher, mutilated. Prosecutors said the beatings began when Tiffanie Irwin, the church pastor, allegedly accused the boys of using witchcraft, making a voodoo doll of the pastor, and sexually abusing their siblings and nieces.

New and improved CryptXXX ransomware rakes in $45,000 in 3 weeks

Enlarge / A screenshot from the latest version of CryptXXX (credit: SentinelOne)

Whoever said crime doesn't pay didn't know about the booming ransomware market. A case in point, the latest version of the scourge known as CryptXXX, which raked in more than $45,000 in less than three weeks.

Over the past few months, CryptXXX developers have gone back and forth with security researchers. The whitehats from Kaspersky Lab provided a free tool that allowed victims to decrypt their precious data without paying the ransom, which typically reaches $500 or more. Then, CryptXXX developers would tweak their code to defeat the get-out-of-jail decryptor. The researchers would regain the upper hand by exploiting another weakness and so on.

Earlier this month, the developers released a new CryptXXX variant that to date still has no decryptor available. Between June 4 and June 21, according to a blog post published Monday by security firm SentinelOne, the Bitcoin address associated with the new version had received 70 bitcoins, which at current prices is valued at around $45,228. The figure doesn't include revenue generated from previous campaigns.

Zapping chocolate with electricity to cut the fat
  Source: Ars Technica 2016-06-27 15:10:18 (3 hours ago) 

(credit: US Occupational Health)

Because of its popularity, a great deal of research has been devoted to understanding the impact of chocolate on our health and well-being. There are several positive effects of chocolate. Cocoa has been found to be a rich source of antioxidants, and certain types of chocolate (eaten in moderation) reduce blood pressure and positively affect the circulatory system.

Sadly, most chocolates on the market today are also rather unhealthy due to their extremely high fat content. Rising obesity rates worldwide make it hard to recommend chocolate as a health food. Reducing the fat levels in chocolate would help address this concern.

Unfortunately, no adequate solution has ever been found. In a new study recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers investigated the basic science behind liquid chocolate suspensions that makes it so difficult to get rid of the fat.

Climbing the steps of the Supreme Court building Monday morning on the day the court rules to strike down Texas’ absurd abortion restrictions and reassert the constitutional right to an abortion is a bit like trying to force your way through a rave. Supporters of choice are dancing to “Let’s Talk About Sex” and even the court police can be seen to let go an occasional bump or shimmy as they mill about near the doors. Protesters on each side of the issue are fighting to be heard over the club music, and it’s a sea of pro-choice purple T-shirts and signs. But despite the high-energy vibe outside the building, the feeling inside the court is one of relief. For the people who work here, this term has been a marathon that started in February and only got harder as the weeks wore on. This institution doesn’t much like change, it still grieves for Justice Antonin Scalia, and it doesn’t much favor the thumping block party happening in its front yard.

HP Adds a Touchscreen To Its 11-inch Chromebook Lineup
  Source: Slashdot 2016-06-27 14:51:46 (3 hours ago) 
An anonymous reader shares a report by The Verge:HP today announced the Chromebook 11 G5, the first of the company's Chrome OS laptops in the 11-inch range to include a touchscreen display. The new Chromebook starts at $189 and will go on sale through HP's channel partners in July. It will be more widely available in stores this October. The base model of the Chromebook 11 G5 has a 11.6-inch screen with a sub-HD display (there will be an option for an HD IPS touchscreen panel with Gorilla Glass), weighs 2.51 pounds, and comes with a 1.6gHz Intel Celeron N3060 -- a somewhat common processor for low- to mid-range Chromebooks. HP claims it will be powerful enough to handle video calls and playback, and that it "speeds through spreadsheets," which is the most amazingly modest goal I can imagine for a Chromebook. Of course that limited performance, coupled with Chrome OS's limited feature set, gives the Chromebook 11 G5 up to 11 solid hours of battery life, according to HP.

Congratulations to the Winners of EFF's 9th Annual Cyberlaw Trivia Night
  Source: Deeplinks 2016-06-27 14:50:39 (3 hours ago) 

The best legal minds in the Bay Area gathered to participate in EFF's 9th Annual Cyberlaw Trivia Night on June 16. Over 100 friends from 20 technology law firms and Internet companies attended, making for a rousing night vying for the coveted Cyberlaw Quiz Cup. EFF's staff joined forces to craft questions, pulling details from the rich canon of privacy, free speech, and intellectual property law, creating seven rounds about privacy and speech, encryption case law, fair use in music, and more.

Competition was fierce this year, with the top four teams separated by just one point. The tiebreaker round involved very challenging questions, including one about a court decision published just hours earlier, in Capitol Records v. Vimeo.

With 50 points out of a possible 56, our winning team this year was “By Reading This Team Name You Agree to Arbitration,” made up of counsel from Durie Tangri and friends. They were followed by newcomer Pinterest ("Pinter is Coming") in a close second place finish. The combined Covington & Burling / UC Berkeley team took third place in a real photo finish, overtaking high scorers the Ridder, Costa, & Johnstone LLP team (“102(b) or not 102(b), that is the question”) in the tiebreaker round.

EFF's summer legal interns, calling themselves "The DMCA Took My Baby Away," made a strong showing just 2½ points behind the winning score.

Please join us in congratulating this year's trivia masterminds:

1st Place:

“By Reading This Team Name You Agree to Arbitration,” Durie Tangri and friends

2nd Place:

“Pinter is Coming” Pinterest

3rd Place:

Covington & Burling LLP, and UC Berkeley

EFF hosts the Cyberlaw Trivia Night to gather those in the legal community who help protect online freedom in the courts. Among the many firms that continue to dedicate their time, talent, and resources to the cause, we would especially like to thank Durie Tangri; Keker & Van Nest, LLP; and Ridder, Costa & Johnstone LLP for sponsoring this year’s Bay Area event.

As wildfire season ramps up, nearby drones are becoming a problem again
  Source: Ars Technica 2016-06-27 14:50:18 (3 hours ago) 

(credit: Samuel King Jr.)

Firefighters working to contain a wildfire in the San Gabriel Mountains of Southern California were temporarily thwarted this weekend when pilots for the Monrovia Fire Department (MFD) spotted a few private drones in their path. For low-flying fire-fighting planes carrying fire retardant and smoke jumpers, an errant drone could mean life or death for the pilot and any crew. As such, the fire department decided to temporarily ground all aircraft on Saturday morning.

That decision can be a frustrating one for firefighters and residents of a fire-affected area, because there’s always the potential that the fire could burn out of control without aircraft flying in firefighters and equipment. The Monrovia Fire Department acknowledged this situation in a post this weekend.

“It is vitally important to note… fire officials cannot deploy firefighting aircraft when private individuals are flying drones in the fire response locations," the MFD wrote. "Fortunately for us here locally, the fire was more fully contained when we had to suspend air operations yesterday, however, these types of disruptions are extremely dangerous to firefighting personnel and can cause severe disruptions to the response effort.”

Wolves free agency roundup (and why a splashy trade might make sense)
  Source: StarTribune.com Top Stories 2016-06-27 14:41:31 (3 hours ago) 
NBA free agency begins Friday, when the clock starts ticking on the negotiating window with players. They can then be signed starting on July 7. The Wolves don’t figure to be extravagant players in the market for a couple reasons: 1) Historically they’ve had a hard time luring top-tier free agents (like Kevin Durant) to Minnesota. Even if that could change at some point given the growth potential of the team, it doesn’t appear to be the case with Durant — who reportedly is set to meet with six teams, none of them being the Wolves. 2) They’re a team built from the bottom up, using high draft picks. Guys like Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins are on relatively modest contracts now, but someday they will get paid big (more on that in a minute). If the Wolves spend foolishly now, they could pay for it later with a clogged up cap. That said, this free agency period is fascinating league-wide — with the Wolves included. Here are a few items of note as we head toward Friday: *Joakim Noah, the former Bulls big man, is considered a great fit to sign with his former coach Tom Thibodeau, in Minnesota. But the Derrick Rose trade to New York might be throwing a wrench into those plans. Rose is already recruiting Noah to play with the Knicks and the New York Post reported that there might be some mutual interest on Noah’s part. Washington could also throw a ton of money at Noah. (Again, more on that in a minute). *Other free agent names of note: Al Horford, Hassan Whiteside, DeMar DeRozan, Nicolas Batum, Chandler Parsons, Bismack Biyombo and Arron Afflalo. *That free agent list isn’t all that exciting, right? Either a player would appear to be out of the Wolves’ reach or could be exceedingly overpaid this year. Why? Because this year’s crop of free agents will be the first to cash in on the expected crazy jump in the NBA salary cap, thanks to 2016-17 being the first season of the league’s ridiculously lucrative new 9-year, $24 billion TV contract. The salary cap is projected to go from $70 million to $94 million, and the max contracts will jump accordingly. *That salary cap jump is going to make a player like Ricky Rubio (under contract for the next three seasons at roughly $14 million per year) seem like a better value. Combined with the fact that the Wolves just drafted point guard Kris Dunn — and despite any assertions that Dunn and Rubio can play together — that could help Minnesota find a trade partner if they are, indeed, shopping Rubio (and when it comes from Woj, you don’t doubt it). *That cap jump is also part of the reason a trade for Jimmy Butler still makes sense if the Wolves decide they want to keep Rubio and if those trade talks can be rekindled after cooling down post-draft. Butler signed his max deal last offseason at five years for roughly $90 million ($18 million per year). His max contract this offseason reportedly would be roughly $22.2 million per year with that cap jump. So basically any player who is locked up long term right now and is productive is going to look like a relative bargain for a while (I use the term relative because all the money is obscene). The flip side of that is if the pieces required to get Butler are, say, Dunn and Zach LaVine the Wolves would be trading away two players still on rookie scale deals for a big contract. But if the Wolves aren’t going to be major free agency players and the cap is going way up, their best chance at getting an already-established star to complement their young core at a “reasonable” price is through a trade like that one. *It’s way too soon to wonder how the Wolves are going to afford to pay all of their young players eventually given how expensive contracts are going to be throughout the life of the deal. The salary increases will be in step with increased revenues and increased cap room. But in the short-term, the jump from $70 million to $94 million is going to create a very interesting free agent market — and perhaps trade market — in the league.
