It’s time for New York to put everyday people back in charge of elections. Albany: pass Fair Elections. Don’t come home without it.
When I was 16, I was diagnosed with an extremely rare, aggressively benign tumor in my right temporal lobe. I think it was probably around that time that I started thinking of my body as a broken machine.
I started running regularly in August of 2012 because I knew if I could run 13.1 miles, I would have a good excuse to go to Disney World.
A year ago this weekend, I completed my first half marathon, the Disney Princess Half. Since then, I have run 8 half marathons. I have another three scheduled for the upcoming months.
I still think of my body as a machine. But it sure as hell isn’t broken.
Google unveils next-generation smartphone device featuring motion and depth sensors. This is really exciting as it offers computational photography to the masses and far more sophisticated Augmented Reality experiences. The prototype device is available now for developers to create something special - video embedded below:
As we walk through our daily lives, we use visual cues to navigate and understand the world around us. We observe the size and shape of objects and rooms, and we learn their position and layout almost effortlessly over time. This awareness of space and motion is fundamental to the way we interact with our environment and each other. We are physical beings that live in a 3D world. Yet, our mobile devices assume that physical world ends at the boundaries of the screen.
The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.

This is my favorite thing I have ever seen on the internet.
Dale Hanson is a hero and a stand-up guy. Way to go Texas, for having the best sports anchor in America.
"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards freedom." -Martin Luther King
In case you can’t be bothered to watch this video — an old straight white dude from Texas, a sports anchor, calls out the whole NFL for allowing men to commit acts of violence and violence against women, but being completely close-minded about Michael Sam announcing he’s gay. AND HE QUOTES AUDRE LORDE.
We’re getting there. This is real. When men like this stand up for men like Michael Sam — it makes a goddamn difference.
Through his lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union, Mr. Snowden did not specifically address the government’s theory of how he obtained the files, saying in a statement: “It’s ironic that officials are giving classified information to journalists in an effort to discredit me for giving classified information to journalists. The difference is that I did so to inform the public about the government’s actions, and they’re doing so to misinform the public about mine.”
