  • Stream cipher

    In a synchronous stream cipher, the sender and receiver must be exactly in step for decryption to be successful. If digits are added or removed from the message during transmission, synchronisation is lost. To restore synchronisation, various offsets can be tried systematically to obtain the correct decryption. Another approach is to tag the ciphertext with markers at regular points in the output.

    Now the data finally exist to show that if the right species of trees are planted in the right soil types across the planet, the emerging forests could capture 205 gigatons of carbon dioxide in the next 40 to 100 years. That’s two thirds of all the CO2 humans have generated since the industrial revolution. “Forest restoration is by far our most powerful planetary solution today,” says Tom Crowther

  • Hong Kong Protest Live Updates: Demonstrators Charge Legislature, Attempt to Break Glass Doors

    A distinctive feature of this year’s movement is that it has been somewhat leaderless. Decisions on when, where and how to protest have often been made collectively on social media platforms where users are anonymous and proposed plans are agreed to through “likes” and so-called upvotes.

  • Protesters in Hong Kong Have Changed Their Playbook. Here’s How.

    “Occupying drains a lot of energy,” Dr. Chung said, explaining that protesters can now quickly gather a few thousand people to disrupt government services for short periods of time. This allows them to preserve their energy as well as cause less disruption, which helps with staying on the right side of public opinion, he said.

  • Information operations on Twitter: principles, process, and disclosure

    Non-peer reviewed research using our public API can often be deeply flawed. We see a lot of commercially-driven and non-peer reviewed research that make sweeping assessments of account behaviors only using public signals, such as location (if cited), account content, how often an account Tweets, and the accounts it follows. To be clear: none of these indicators are sufficient to determine attribution to a state entity definitively. Looking for accounts that look similar to those disclosed as part of our archives is an equally flawed approach, given many of the bad actors mimic legitimate accounts to appear credible. This approach also often wrongly captures legitimate voices who share a particular political viewpoint that one disagrees with.

  • Flow (psychology)

    In his chapter “Why Flow Doesn’t Happen on the Job,” Csikszentmihályi argues the first reason that flow does not occur is that the goals of one’s job are not clear. He explains that while some tasks at work may fit into a larger, organization plan, the individual worker may not see where their individual task fits it. Second, limited feedback about one’s work can reduce motivation and leaves the employee unaware of whether or not they did a good job. When there is little communication of feedback, an employee may not be assigned tasks that challenge them or seem important, which could potentially prevent an opportunity for flow.

  • How Ken Layne Created a Publishing Oasis in a Desert Town of 8,000 People - Pacific Standard

    Layne designs the Oracle all by himself. The ideal is four issues a year, but, as he’s without even an assistant, the pace is a little slower than that. Layne has given himself entirely to the magazine. When we meet, he’s wearing an olive hunting shirt with a Desert Oracle iron-on patch; his license plate reads “D ORACLE.”

    Layne was finally able to revisit the radio show idea this past summer, crafting a 28-minute episode every week (which he says requires about 12 hours of work) and broadcasting it at 10 p.m. on Fridays on a local station in the high desert surrounding Joshua Tree.

  • Remember the ‘10,000 Hours’ Rule for Success? Forget About It - The New York Times

    Or suppose you aspire to be an inventor. Here specialists and generalists each have their advantages. But the really enviable type is the “polymath,” who possesses deep expertise in one or more core areas but also knows the “adjacent stuff” in dozens of other technological domains. While polymath inventors are less deep than the specialists, they tend to be even broader than the generalists. Schematically, polymaths resemble a T (broad + deep) or even a π (broad + double-deep).

  • Erection Hardness Score

    Developed in 1998, the EHS is a single-item Likert scale that men can use on their own. The tool asks them to consider the question “How would you rate the hardness of your erection?” and select one of the following options:

    • 0 – Penis does not enlarge.
    • 1 – Penis is larger, but not hard.
    • 2 – Penis is hard, but not hard enough for penetration.
    • 3 – Penis is hard enough for penetration, but not completely hard.
    • 4 – Penis is completely hard and fully rigid.

  • The Oyster Wars: A Real Thing That Happened, feat. the Dancing Molly Pirate Posse

    While all of the men had disembarked, the Captain’s wife and two daughters were still aboard the ship. When they saw Cameron’s crew approaching, they tried to yell at the fellas to get back to the boat with no success. None of the men could hear them from ashore. So the women, being resourceful, smart, sailing pirates, pulled up anchor and out-sailed Cameron back to their own waters.

  • Oyster pirate

    By the 1880s the handful of competing oyster companies began consolidating into a single monopoly. Their harvest of a private commodity from a public space, the San Francisco Bay, led to an opportunity for oyster pirates. Pirates raided the oyster beds at night and sold their take in the Oakland markets in the morning. The public disliked the Southern Pacific and the oyster growers, and liked cheap oysters. As a result, the oyster pirates had considerable public sympathy and police were reluctant to take action against them.

  • How to Plan a Product Release

    • What do you hope will happen for the business once the product has been released?
    • By when?
    • How will you measure that success?
    • What is the task the user wants to accomplish?
    • Which user(s)?
    • Why do they want to complete that task?
    • How often will they want to complete that task? Hourly? Daily? Weekly? Quarterly? Only once?
    • How valuable will this feature be?

    Start by mapping the story of your product from beginning to end. For example: First the user can login, then the user can invite friends, then the user can visit the news feed.
