On Dec. 6, late in the day, US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg granted president Donald Trump’s request for an emergency stay suspending a lower court decision finding his financial records are subject to subpoena.
It’s just one of three matters having to do with Trump’s finances that the court may consider, which is likely why Ginsburg granted the request. Her order is not a substantive affirmation of the president’s legal position that as the nation’s executive his records are special, but a procedural acknowledgment of the fact that similar matters are pending and that the president is working on a petition for Supreme Court review.
Two of the cases Trump plans to challenge at the high...

Next week, on Dec. 11, the US Supreme Court is faced with a case that may be every parent’s nightmare.
The justices will be reviewing a decision that is keeping an American mother separated by an ocean from her four-year-old child, who was born in Italy when her parents were still married in 2015.
The heartbreaking case of Michelle Monasky and Domenico Taglieri—the parents of this child who is known only as AMT in court papers—began as a cross-cultural love affair. The parents met in the US in 2011 when both were doing medical research, fell in love, and married. In 2013, Taglieri had trouble finding work in the States and the couple moved to his home country of Italy, where their relationship began to...

Photo: DANJAQ and MGM / Nicola Dove Hi everyone, I’m back after a couple weeks away — partly because of the holidays, partly because the trailer selection just wasn’t very good. (I’m sorry, I couldn’t post another Cats trailer). I got to watch a few things during the break though, with the biggest being Joker.
There’s something incredible about indie filmmaking styles now being so mainstream that a major comic book movie is able to emulate them. All of Joker feels this way to an extent, but the clearest moments are the occasional sequences that have the camera floating close beside a silent, emotional Joaquin Phoenix, in the oddest of homages to Terrence Malick. I love how the filmmakers are trying...

Next week, on Dec. 10, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in three cases that put health insurers in the awkward position that the insured know all too well—wrangling with a seemingly intractable and massive entity for promised funds.
The dispute stems from the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as “Obamacare.” The national health insurance initiative was created to cover millions of previously uninsured people, and the federal government sought to entice private insurers to participate by offering various risk-management measures to offset potential losses. One of these, the “risk-corridors program,” required the government to partially reimburse insurers if their costs rose...

Massachusetts regulators have taken legal action against Metals.com for allegedly convincing seniors to invest millions of dollars of retirement savings into overpriced precious metals.
A Quartz investigation linked the company with a web of Facebook ads and websites that specifically target conservative retirees. Dozens of the company’s clients across the country have lost large chunks of their savings, swayed by a high-pressure sales pitch warning of doom-and-gloom economic scenarios.
The securities division of the Massachusetts secretary of state, according to the complaint, alleges that Metals.com “engaged in fraud” and also violated state law by acting as an unregistered investment advisor and by...

Amazon’s promise of one-day shipping has led it to increasingly rely on its own air cargo division, Amazon Air. But as the number of shipments pushed through the cargo arm multiplies, the pilots who fly those packages continue to voice that they are overworked and underpaid.
The pilots don’t work for Amazon directly, but are employed by the contractors Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) and Atlas Air. More than 200 cargo pilots who fly for ABX Air, which is a division of ATSG, cast a vote of “no confidence” against management’s ability to resolve ongoing labor disputes, reported Reuters earlier this week. In total, all but one member of the pilot’s union voted “Yes” on a resolution that asked...

It’s not uncommon for dramas to depict what it’s like to live with mental illness — but to paint a picture of mental illness in a compassionate and realistic way for the big screen is no easy feat.  That said, such films do exist -- and surprisingly enough, Disney’s Frozen is one of those them. Six years after Disney’s Frozen melted the hearts of audiences of all ages, its much awaited sequel — Frozen II is finally upon us. Introducing us to Princesses Elsa and Anna, the original 2013 movie became the highest-grossing animated movie of all time, which could easily be attributed to its standout song “Let It Go" or its unique story about a princess coming into her own power. On the surface, Frozen...

The concept of subsidiarity seems deceptively simple: decisions should be made as close to those affected by them as reasonably practicable. If there is no added value in dealing with a problem on an EU level, Member States should be left to do so. The Lisbon Treaty (or more precisely, its Protocol 2) sets out in detail how the European Commission must justify that its legal proposals comply with the principle. However, nearly thirty years after the Treaty of Maastricht, we are still unsure whether subsidiarity is a legal or a political principle. At the 31th edition of JEF Strasbourg and JEF Freiburg's annual joint seminar last weekend, the topic was ‘Europe of Regions'. The opening session featured Peter...

There’s a high probability that most people reading this article will be familiar with the image on the right. That’s because in computing terms, data compression tool WinRAR has been around for what seems like forever. Indeed, with its 25th birthday coming up next April, WinRAR launched before many of its users were even born. Nevertheless, it has stood the tests of time and according to the latest estimates, now has around 500 million users. Indeed, the company told us this week that WinRAR is the third most installed software in the world behind Chrome and Acrobat Reader. The reason for that, at least in part, is the company’s liberal business model. Perhaps the most curious thing about this...

Mr. Rogers (in full Fred McFeely Rogers), was an American television host, producer, writer and minister, best known for his educational children’s show called Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Mister Rogers’ half-hour program was aimed initially at preschool ages 2 to 5, but after its debut, people of all ages would watch it since it brought so much joy to their homes. Fred Rogers was just as nice,
friendly and empathetic in real life, as he appears onscreen. He was an
activist and an advocate for children from all backgrounds and during his show
he managed to equip them with the tools they needed to navigate life’s most
difficult moments. The much-loved host understood that kids need to learn how to live...

Netflix didn’t have plans to release numbers for The Irishman when asked by The Verge earlier this week, but ratings firm Nielsen beat the streamer to the punch. Nielsen reports that “an average minute audience of nearly 13.2 million viewers with a reach of over 17.1 million unique U.S. viewers” watched The Irishman within the first five days of its release. That’s better than El Camino, the Breaking Bad movie that debuted to 11 million views, but didn’t do as well as the meme-fueled Bird Box, which saw 26 million views within the same time frame. Nielsen isn’t a complete measure of viewing data as it doesn’t take into account global views (where the majority of Netflix’s subscriber base is),...

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Elon Musk’s tweets calling caver Vernon Unsworth, who was involved in the rescue of 13 people from a cave in Thailand, a “pedo guy” do not meet the legal standard for defamation, a jury found Friday afternoon. As a result, Musk will not be liable for damages.
The decision had to do with defamation law as the judge had laid it out. There were five points: first, that the statements had to be made to a person other than Unsworth; second, that the statements had to be understood to be about Unsworth; third, that the statements had to be understood to mean Unsworth was a pedophile; fourth, that the statements were false; and fifth, that the statements were reckless....

Truth Be Told should be a home run. Its premise — the story of a podcaster revisiting a murder case 20 years after a suspect has been incarcerated — immediately evokes Serial. The pilot, which showcases what appears to be a coerced minor’s testimony, might as well mention Making A Murderer by name. These are popular, compelling true crime stories, and Truth Be Told is out to recreate the thrills of the genre through fiction. Truth Be Told is the latest original series from Apple TV Plus. Poppy Parnell (Octavia Spencer) is a true crime podcaster returning to the case of Warren Cave (Aaron Paul), a man convicted of murdering his neighbor when he was a teenager. Poppy has reason to believe that Warren might...

Since landing his breakout role on HBO's Girls back in 2012, Adam Driver has seen his acting career take off. In the years that followed his successful run on the show, he has played Kylo Ren in Star Wars, snagged an Oscar nomination for BlacKkKlansman, and made a splash on Broadway, scoring a Tony nom for Burn This.  All throughout this exciting journey, he’s had a special someone by his side: his wife, fellow actress Joanne Tucker. You might recognize her from Girls or Showtime’s Billions, but you likely haven’t seen much of her actually with Driver.  That’s because, as a couple, the two have managed to stay far, far away from the public eye. So far, in fact, that they actually hid the birth of...

However, it looks like the company is branching out — or, at least, it’s licensing its name to third-party retailers to branch out for it. As reported by Gadgets 360, Indian company Flipkart has been granted the use of the Nokia brand for its smart TVs — “a global first for the brand in the TV category,” according to Flipkart itself, which is a major e-commerce retailer in the country.

Il Segretario del MFE di Roma mi ha gentilmente segnalato la registrazione di un evento che avrei voluto sinceramente seguire dal vivo alla Fiera Nazionale della Piccola e Media Editoria che si sta svolgendo in questi giorni nella Capitale.

If you hadn’t noticed, we had a bit of an FPGA theme running at this year’s Superconference. Why? Because the open-source FPGA toolchain is ripening, and because many of the problems that hackers (and academics) are tackling these days have become complex enough to warrant using them. A case in point: David Williams is a university professor who just wanted to build a quadruped robotics project. Each leg has a complex set of motors, motor drivers, sensors, and other feedback mechanisms. Centralizing all of this data put real strains on the robot’s network, and with so many devices the microcontrollers were running out of GPIOs. This lead him to become, in his words, “FPGA-curious”.

What does Pluto — not the dog, but the non-Planet — have in common with the Vikram lunar lander launched by India? Both were found by making very tiny comparisons to photographs. You’d think landing something on the moon would be old hat by now, but it turns out only three countries have managed to do it. The Chandrayaan-2 mission would have made India the fourth country. But two miles above the surface, the craft left its planned trajectory and went radio silent.
India claimed it knew where the lander crashed but never revealed any pictures or actual coordinates. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter took pictures several times of the landing area but didn’t see the expected scar like the one left by...

Elle présentera 26 oeuvres originales de l’artiste mexicaine, comprenant dessins et peintures à l’huile, ainsi qu’une retrospective sur sa carrière artistique et sur sa vie privée, ces deux paramètres étant indissociables afin de comprendre ses choix, son évolution et l’entièreté de son oeuvre. Cette exposition permettra donc d’établir un lien entre le spectateur et Frida Kahlo, de manière intime et éclairée.

On Star Trek, all Kirk and friends had to do was snap the button on the always conveniently located intercom panel, start talking, and the intended recipient would immediately respond no matter where they were in the ship. How did it work? Who knows. In spite of, or perhaps even because of, the lightly-explained nature of the technology, the cherry-red wall intercoms still hold a certain charm for fans of the groundbreaking show.
A viewer sent [Fran Blanche] a scaled down replica of the intercom from ThinkGeek, and while it certainly looks fairly close to the original prop, it has a couple of annoying design elements. When triggered by the side-mounted motion sensors, the panel will play either the iconic...

After the TRON acquisition, uTorrent and BitTorrent’s social media channels have been predominantly ‘crypto’ oriented. The core audience of the file-sharing clients, which still consists of millions of users, remains mostly interested in downloading and sharing files though. This is something uTorrent still does well and the same is true for the BitTorrent Mainline client. However, new users of these clients have repeatedly been warned not to use the software by several leading anti-virus vendors. In the past BitTorrent Inc. classified such warnings as false positives which it could resolve relatively easily. While that may be true, it appears that the problem is rather persistent and likely more...

Cheeze “우린 어디에나 (We’re Everywhere)”
“We’re Everywhere” is a ballad with a sophisticated R&B gloss that conveys a very heightened sense of romanticism – it’s very “we’re in a movie, and this part is so perfect it makes me cry.” It sounds like a perfect vision of love, but the English translation of the Korean lyrics reveals some interesting contextual details: She’s mostly singing about feeling awkward and anxious with someone, and is very fixated on the smallness of her body. It’s as much about being in love as it is about feeling insignificant and shy – not necessarily contradictory things, but something that complicates the sweetness and purity of this music.

CVE-2019-5700 is a vulnerability in the Nvidia Tegra bootloader, discovered by [Ryan Grachek], and breaking first here at Hackaday. To understand the vulnerability, one first has to understand a bit about the Tegra boot process. When the device is powered on, a irom firmware loads the next stage of the boot process from the device’s flash memory, and validates the signature on that binary. As an aside, we’ve covered a similar vulnerability in that irom code called selfblow.
On Tegra T4 devices, irom loads a single bootloader.bin, which in turn boots the system image. The K1 boot stack uses an additional bootloader stage, nvtboot, which loads the secure OS kernel before handing control to bootloader.bin....

L’architecture urbaine, ses grandes barres d’immeubles et ses logements reproduits à l’identique. À la vue de ces constructions, le photographe italien Gustav Willeit s’interroge sur la place laissée à l’individualité. Avec sa série BIALA, l’artiste remet l’humain au centre du processus, de manière concrète et visible. Il livre une succession de plans serrés sur des immeubles urbains, sélectionnés pour leur symétrie et leur géométrie. Et au milieu des lignes qui s’entrecroisent et des étages qui s’élèvent, il met en lumière la présence d’une personne, qui vient perturber la linéarité et l’immobilité ambiante.

The Pirate Bay has been operating one of its original domains – thepiratebay.org – for well over 15 years. During that same period, it has also burned through countless others due to anti-piracy action all around the globe. The Pirate Bay is also one of the most blocked platforms on the planet for the same reason, something that has led to the creation of hundreds of proxy sites, set up to facilitate access to the index, regardless of which official domain is in use. Last evening the operator of a site that indexes links to some of these proxies told TorrentFreak that their owners had noticed that The Pirate Bay’s Onion site had been down for several hours, which is unusual.
