Actual Final Third Party Debate Tonight

November 5th, 2012 11:30 admin View Comments

Politics

Separate from the debate moderated by Ralph Nader last night, Free and Equal is hosting a final third party debate tonight at 9:00 p.m. EST (pre-debate coverage began at 8:00 p.m. EST). As a follow up to the October 23rd debate, only Jill Stein (Green) and Gary Johnson (Libertarian) will be facing each other for ninety minutes of questions primarily focusing on foreign policy. It appears that this one isn’t being picked up by C-SPAN, but it is being broadcast on RT America on a few cable networks as well as on Youtube (which should work if you have an HTML5 browser, or via the XBMC Youtube plugin). Discuss.

Third Party Debates Moderated by Larry King: Discuss

October 23rd, 2012 10:32 admin View Comments

Politics

Since the two big guys got their three debates covered, and the last third party debate kind of fizzled due to technical difficulties, we invite you to discuss the third party debate happening at 9 p.m. EDT tonight. Candidates from the Green, Libertarian, Constitution, and Justice parties will be debating in the same room with Larry King moderating. It would appear that C-SPAN is rebroadcasting it, so you catch it using rtmpdump if you happen to not use Flash. Since third party politicians are still politicians, remember to print out some Logical Fallacy Bingo. Topics for the debate include climate change, the drug war, and civil liberties.

Third 2012 US Presidential Debate Tonight: Discuss Here

October 22nd, 2012 10:32 admin View Comments

United States

Tonight marks the third and final U.S. Presidential debate in the lead-up to the election on November 6th. It starts at 9PM ET (6PM PT, 0100 UTC), and it’s taking place at Lynn University in Florida. The topic this time around is foreign policy, including discussions of Afghanistan and Pakistan, Israel and Iran, America’s role in the world, “The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism,” and China’s rise as a superpower. You can livestream it from the usual suspects: (C-SPAN, ABC, PBS, CNN). Politifact has posted an article fact-checking statements the candidates have made about foreign policy. Both they and Factcheck.org will be using Twitter to verify statements in real time. This presidential debate again excludes the smaller U.S. political parties. If you’re interested in hearing other voices, you’ll be able to see candidates from the Libertarian, Green, Constitution, and Justice parties in a debate tomorrow with Larry King moderating. As before, we’re doing a separate post for the debate in the hopes that political talk won’t clutter other stories tonight. Tell us what you think as the debate unfolds. For live conversation, remember: context helps. And, as reader Ryanator2209 keeps pointing out, you can entertain yourself by playing Logical Fallacy Bingo while you watch.

US Presidential Debate #2 Tonight: Discuss Here

October 16th, 2012 10:30 admin View Comments

United States

The second U.S. Presidential debate kicks off in about a half-hour (9PM ET, 6PM PT, 0100 UTC) from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. Incumbent Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney will take questions from an audience of allegedly undecided voters. A live stream of the event will be available from a number of sources (C-SPAN, CNN, ABC, and PBS), and it will be broadcast nationally on the major networks. The flash-less and television-less can use rtmpdump to catch the debate from C-SPAN. It won’t preempt the more important telecasts, like playoff baseball. Candidates from smaller parties again went uninvited (e.g. Gary Johnson from the Libertarians, Jill Stein from the Greens, Virgil Goode from the Constitution Party, and Rocky Anderson from the Justice Party). In fact, Jill Stein was arrested for attempting to enter without credentials (her side of the story). Assuming she’s out of jail by Thursday, she and Gary Johnson will be participating in an online debate hosted by IVN.us. While tonight’s debate is in progress, Politifact will be fact-checking the candidates in real-time (while CNN has demonstrated their journalistic capabilities with a debate drinking game). Feel free to weigh in with your commentary on the debate below — it would be helpful to provide timestamps or other context when referring to particular statements. As before, we’re posting this here in a vain attempt to keep the political discussion out of other story threads tonight. If either of the candidates spontaneously concedes the election or catches fire, we’ll do our best to update you.

Government

Tonight’s debate between the two largest American political parties’ candidates for vice president of the United States takes place at Danville, Kentucky’s Centre College, starting at 9 p.m. Joe Biden and Paul Ryan will face each other on stage, and are expected to talk about issues “including the economy, foreign policy and the role of the Vice President,” according to C-SPAN, which will feature a live streaming view of the event. (Criteria from the Commission on Presidential Debates means you won’t hear tonight from other presidential candidates’ running mates (like Cheri Honkala, Jim Clymer, and James Gray, of the Green, Constitution, and Libertarian party tickets, respectively). If you’ll be watching the debate tonight, please add your commentary below. It would be helpful if you start your comment’s title with a time-stamp (to the minute), too, for context. (Like this: “9:08: $Candidate just intentionally mis-repeated the Q on taxes.”) And Yes, we’re posting this here in a vain attempt to keep the political discussion out of other story threads tonight.

MSL Landing Timeline: What To Expect Tonight

Mars

An anonymous reader writes “When the Curiosity rover lands on Mars later tonight, it’ll be executing a complex series of maneuvers. JPL will be relying on the Mars Odyssey orbiter to relay telemetry back to Earth in time-delayed real-time, and if all goes well, we’ll be getting confirmation on the success (or failure) of each entry, descent, and landing phase, outlined in detail here.”

Rare ‘Annular Solar Eclipse’ Tonight

Space

First time accepted submitter Trubacca writes “The Northern-Pacific “Ring of Fire” has an opportunity tonight to observe an entirely different “ring of fire”: an annular solar eclipse where the moon, owing to it’s distance from the Earth, seems smaller than the apparent diameter of the sun. This results in the fiery ring for which the phenomenon takes it’s name. Space.com has a decent write-up on the path of the eclipse, times, and tips for safe-viewing.”

Amazon Launches Business Process Automation Service

February 21st, 2012 02:45 admin View Comments

Amazon just announced the availability of a new service called Simple Workflow Service (SWF), which allows developers to define a series of complex steps in carrying out a business process, then implements and monitors those steps all together, as a service. “This new service gives you the ability to build and run distributed, fault-tolerant applications that span multiple systems (cloud-based, on-premise, or both),” writes Amazon’s Jeff Barr. SWF can also work across mobile devices.

The technology is similar to Beanstalkd, which describes itself as “a big to-do list for your distributed application.” Leena Rao at TechCrunch first reported on the existence of SWF two weeks ago when one of her readers saw it and sent her screenshots. Tonight the service was formally announced, complete with high-profile case studies, infographics and multiple blog posts.

Amazon Web Services customers get a limited number of free workflows they can allocate and Barr’s post discusses pricing at the very end. For example, “You pay $0.0001 for every Workflow execution, and an additional $0.000005 per day if they remain active for more than 24 hours.”

As Reto Kramer, General Manager, Application Connection Services, AWS, said in the news release: “By relying on Amazon SWF to handle the coordination of distributed task execution, developers can now focus on building the differentiating aspects of their applications and leave the undifferentiated heavy lifting of building and managing workflow engines to AWS.”

The company launched the new service tonight with three early testimonials, including from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs. They are, as Netflix’s Adrian Cockcroft said on Twitter tonight, “very cool examples.”

Automated workflow management, across multiple environments, as a platform for innovation and value creation is a very exciting prospect. It abstracts a layer of detail in order to facilitate the expansion of a developer’s ability to create value on a higher level of abstraction. There may be no higher calling, as platforms go.

From the Macintosh and the iPod, to iTunes and the iPhone, Jobs has personally presided over the creation of dozens of transformational devices, battling hostile corporate boards, cutthroat competitors, and serious illness while securing his legacy as one of the few who dared to “Think Different.â€
