AT&T Buys Time Warner For $85B. Is The Mass Media Consolidating?

Though regulators may not agree, "Time Warner and AT&T reps claim this is necessary just to compete," warns Mr D from 63. Reuters reports: The tie-up of AT&T Inc and Time Warner Inc, bringing together one of the country's largest wireless and pay TV providers and cable networks like HBO, CNN and TBS, could kick off a new round of industry consolidation amid massive changes in how people watch TV... Media content companies are having an increasingly difficult time as standalone entities, creating an opportunity for telecom, satellite and cable providers to make acquisitions, analysts say. Media firms face pressure to access distribution as more younger viewers cut their cable cords and watch their favorite shows on mobile devices. Distribution companies, meanwhile, see acquiring content as a way to diversify revenue. The deal reflects "big changes in consumption of video particularly among millennials," according to one former FCC commissioner, and the article also reports that the deal "will face serious opposition." Massachusetts Democrat Edward Markey warned "we need more competition, not more consolidation... Less competition has historically resulted in fewer choices and higher prices for consumers..." And in a Saturday speech, Donald Trump called it " an example of the power structure I'm fighting...too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."

Schiaparelli's ground team believes it is from the high-speed impact of the lander's main body... A little more than a half-mile (1 kilometer) to the south, a bright spot appears in the image, likely the 39-foot-diameter (12-meter) supersonic parachute and part of Schiaparelli's heat shield, which released from the lander just before ESA lost contact."

A British Supercomputer Can Predict Winter Weather a Year In Advance

The national weather service of the U.K. claims it can now predict the weather up to a year in advance. An anonymous reader quotes The Stack: The development has been made possible thanks to supercomputer technology granted by the UK Government in 2014. The 97 million high-performance computing facility has allowed researchers to increase the resolution of climate models and to test the retrospective skill of forecasts over a 35-year period starting from 1980... The forecasters claim that new supercomputer-powered techniques have helped them develop a system to accurately predict North Atlantic Oscillation -- the climatic phenomenon which heavily impacts winters in the U.K. The researchers apparently tested their supercomputer on 36 years worth of data, and reported proudly that they could predict winter weather a year in advance -- with 62% accuracy.

Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom Have Officially Signed Their Divorce Papers

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have formally signed the documents to finalize their divorce settlement,according to TMZ.

The website states that both Kardashian and Odom have signed the papers, which they filed on Friday, and are now just waiting for a judge’s signature to make the whole thing final. The two also reportedly reached a property settlement.

Kardashian firstfiled for divorce in December 2013 after four years of marriage. In October 2015, after Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and left in a coma, Kardashian called off the divorceand withdrew the legal papers.

At the time, since she was still legally married to the basketball player, Kardashian was left to make medical decisions for Odom.

The reality TV star and denim designer refiled for divorce in May of this year, but according to California law has to wait six months from the filing date to get a judge’s signature, TMZ notes. That means, if all goes as planned, the two should be legally single by December.

The Huffington Post has reached out to reps for Kardashian and Odom for comment and will update this post accordingly.

Ricky Gervais: Donald Trump Is More David Brent Than JFK

Ricky Gervais just can’t take Donald Trump’s presidential campaign seriously.

The British comedian said the brash businessman’s bid for the White House was “like a joke that got out of hand” during a wide-ranging interview with Business Insider.

The creator and star of the original United Kingdom version of “The Office” also claimed the GOP nominee had more in commonwithDavid Brent,the cringeworthy boss Gervais played on the show, than former U.S. President John F. Kennedy.

And he likened Trump’s entire candidacy to “a bet from a 1980s movie,” almost certainly referencing the Eddie Murphy comedy“Trading Places.”

“It’s like the movie would start with two old billionaires going, ‘I bet I can choose the worst person and make him president within a year,’” Gervais said in the piece, published online Saturday.“And then someone goes, ‘You’re on!’ and that’s how the film starts.”

Read Ricky Gervais’ full interview with Business Insider here.

Amazon May Handle 30% Of All US Retail Sales

An anonymous reader quotes USA Today: Amazon's yearly sales account for about 15% of total U.S. consumer online sales, according to the company's statements and the Department of Commerce. But the Seattle e-commerce company may actually be handling double that amount -- 20% to 30% of all U.S. retail goods sold online -- thanks to the volume of sales it transacts for third parties on its website and app. Only a portion of those sales add to its revenue. "The punchline is that Amazon's twice as big as people give them credit for, because there's this iceberg under the surface, but you only see the tip," said Scot Wingo, executive chairman of Channel Advisor, an e-commerce software company that works with thousands of online sellers. When third-party sales are taken into account, Amazon's share of what U.S. shoppers spend online could be as high as $125 billion yearly... Amazon's share will grow even larger when they can offer two-hour deliveries, warns one analyst, while another puts it more succinctly. "Amazon's just going to slowly grab more and more of your wallet."

The researchers found 8 critical, 3 medium, and 15 low-severity vulnerabilities, and some of them have already been addressed in version 1.19 of the software, which was released on the same day as the audit report [which has mitigations for the still-unpatched vulnerabilities]. Anyone want to share their experiences with VeraCrypt? Two Quarkslab engineers spent more than a month on the audit, which was funded (and requested) by the non-profit Open Source Technology Improvement Fund "to evaluate the security of the features brought by VeraCrypt since the publication of the audit results on TrueCrypt 7.1a conducted by the Open Crypto Audit Project." Their report concludes that VeraCrypt's security "is improving which is a good thing for people who want to use a disk encryption software," adding that its main developer "was very positive along the audit, answering all questions, raising issues, discussing findings constructively..."

Here Is An Amazing And Easy Way To Explain Feminism To Kids

The most recent installment of our favorite web series for kids is taking some of the more specific topics addressed in earlier episodes and using them to zoom out and tackle another very important concept: feminism.

Lindsey Amer’s “Queer Kid Stuff” unpacks queer themes and experiences in a way that is both educational and entertaining for children. The lastest episode focusing on feminism uses the iconic image of Rosie the Riveter as a point of entry into a discussion about the struggle for women’s rights in America.

“This episode really begins to expand the topics we can tackle in the videos,” Amer told The Huffington Post. “While feminism isn’t strictly an LGBTQ+ topic, it has so much to do with queerness and intersectionality and equality ― all major tenants of the lessons we’ve had so far ― that it fits snugly in with the rest of the videos. It’s also the first episode where we are directly talking about a form of activism, which is incredibly important to teach at a young age, particularly in our current political climate. There are so many ways kids can be activists too!”

Previous episodes of Queer Kid Stuff have explored ideas like “gender” and “queer” ― all which play a role in a nuanced and intersectional understanding of feminism.
