Decades of research led by scientists at Kansas State University offered evidence reintroducing bison to roam the tallgrass prairie gradually doubled plant diversity and improved resilience to extreme drought.
This all adds up to an enormous burden on the American people and our economy. Filing taxes takes up an estimated 6.5 billion hours each year—as the right-leaning Tax Foundation points out, the equivalent of 3.1 million people working full-time for the whole year. Assuming average wages for the types of work involved, that adds up to a $313 billion burden on the economy. In terms of actual business, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are 83,190 tax preparers, making an average income of $51,080. Payroll processing is also a big business, and a necessary employer expense.
A few rivers and basins also start in the U.S. and end up in Mexico, including the Rio Grande from Colorado to Tamaulipas. Further south in Central America and the Caribbean, most of the basins don’t have major rivers and empty into the nearby oceans.
A two-page statement filed on Friday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, issued on behalf of the State Department by Justice Department officials Brian M. Boynton, Anthony J. Coppolino and Laurel H. Lum, announced that the “Defendants” in the case brought by the Accidental Americans “wish[ed] to alert the court of the Department of State’s intent to…reduce the fee for processing” what are known as Certificates of Loss of Nationality of the United States, or CLNs, “from the current amount of US$2,350 to the prior amount of $450.”
This year marked a return of Lisa Su the CEO, president, and Chair of AMD. Of all the major tech CEOs and companies today, Su and AMD are at the center of many of developments most exciting to the industry represented at CES. AMD runs gaming consoles, gaming PCs, PCs, and laptops, and provides chips for machine learning and running cloud workloads. Combine this with Su’s matter of fact yet entertaining stage presence and technologist-at-heart approach to describing products and the keynote can be quite compelling. Su is by far the most commanding tech leader today, at least among those willing to speak at a third-party conference.

Finally, did you note the article’s URL? Very SEO (search engine optimization) friendly, given that it includes the words Olympus and Canon. Of course, it doesn’t use the words PowerShot, Cybershot, or Coolpix, so what’s the point? As a paying NYT subscriber, this article isn’t up to the level I expect as a reader, and the title (“hottest”) and sub-head (“opting for”) aren’t supported by the facts in the article.
Instead of a global consciousness, we have a giant machine for selling ads
Using a 5% significance level, we find no evidence that Medicaid expansions affect any of the outcomes in any of the treated states or all of them combined. Moreover, there is no clear pattern in the signs of the estimated treatment effects.
Raspberry Pi has announced Camera Module 3, a new series of camera systems designed for use with the company’s line of compact DIY computers. There are four different variants of the Camera Module 3, each of which now have autofocus, improved resolution, HDR capture and more.
Identity thieves have been exploiting a glaring security weakness in the website of Experian, one of the big three consumer credit reporting bureaus. Normally, Experian requires that those seeking a copy of their credit report successfully answer several multiple choice questions about their financial history. But until the end of 2022, Experian’s website allowed anyone to bypass these questions and go straight to the consumer’s report. All that was needed was the person’s name, address, birthday and Social Security number.
Our concern is that FD2030 is ill-suited to counter the realities of the nature of war. It is a given that war, from low-intensity to near-peer conflict, all share the very same nature of war a greater or lesser degree; it is chaotic, uncertain, disorderly, complex, bloody and violent. Other truisms of war …

Montefiore reported $199 million invested in “limited partnerships” like hedge funds and private equity in 2020, according to tax filings reviewed by The Lever. Mount Sinai reported $68 million in investments in “Central America and the Caribbean.” Typically, investments in this region are in tax shelters like the Cayman Islands.
Images that are explicitly marked as CC0 from these museums can be used without further research. Not all of their images are CC0; you must confirm the presence of a CC0 license on the specific image you want to use.
Our research focuses on a single technological advancement in one specific context, but we argue that the epidemiological transition that Italy experienced resembles that of many other countries. Therefore, some of the mechanisms we highlight may be applicable to other regions. More specifically, we show that new technologies, especially when they are relatively more affordable by the majority of the population, can lead to a substantial reduction in both mortality rates and health disparities.

One of the key features of SQLite is that it is a serverless database, which means that it does not require a separate server process to operate. Instead, the database is stored in a single file on the user’s device, making it easy to integrate into applications.
SSH is yet another example of an ancient technology that is still in wide use today. It may very well be that learning a couple of SSH tricks is more profitable in the long run than mastering a dozen Cloud Native tools destined to become deprecated next quarter.
The current subscription-based business model removes the opportunity to create a hit. In the way the film economy works now, it is rare to generate a profit large enough to be shared by the parties responsible for making the film. The subscription model also closes the opportunity for additional ancillary profit in foreign markets or home video, which, in the past, could come from different outlets such as digital rental, cable, or broadcast television.
The goal of the Restaurant Edge Compute platform was to create a robust platform in each restaurant where our DevOps Product teams could deploy and manage applications to help Operators and Team Members keep pace with ever-growing business, whether in the kitchen, the supply chain, or in directly serving customers.
“Some communities, as we all know, have let the elite just, you know, run wild,” Maui County Councilman Gabe Johnson, who lives on the island, told Hawaii News Now.
Among his most significant commitments during this period was to the cause of Algerian independence in the late 1950s. “I didn’t choose Algeria over France,” he said. “I chose the quickest possible end to a useless war.”
1. After learning that Twitter employs at least 15 former FBI agents, I searched Facebook. What I found is alarming
Facebook currently employs at least 115 people, in high-ranking positions, that formerly worked at FBI/CIA/NSA/DHS:

Why? It’s partly because there is simply not all that much demand for a heavy lift rocket. Another factor is that SpaceX has increased the performance of its Falcon 9 rocket so much that it can complete a lot of the missions originally manifested on the Falcon Heavy. However the main reason for the low cadence has been due to a lack of readiness of payloads for the new rocket, particularly from the US Department of Defense.
SpaceX made several other commitments, including working with NSF as interference and new challenges are brought up by the astronomy community and also coordinating with the NSF’s Office of Polar Programs to work to minimize the impact of SpaceX on remote geographical radio astronomy sites in polar regions.
If you’ve spent any time with GPT-3 or ChatGPT, you’ve likely thought about how useful it would be if you could point them at a specific, current collection of text or documentation and have it use that as part of its input for answering questions. It turns out there is a neat trick for doing exactly that. I’ve been experimenting with it using my Datasette web application as a rapid prototyping platform for trying out new AI techniques using custom SQL functions.
For one, as grains have longer growth cycles, it’s harder to justify growing them inside, where they take up valuable real estate. Traditional row crops, such as lettuce and tomatoes, have faster growing cycles and can be harvested at significantly higher rates in vertical farms versus traditional farms.
Nowhere else would you find Toyota Land Cruisers and Porsche supercars all vying for the same prize. Among the entrants was a group of German Opel Kadett 4x4s, Russian Ladas, and British Range Rovers. Mitsubishi, winners in 1985, arrived with even faster versions of its proven Pajero SUV.
They say you should “always look up in London”, or you’ll miss half its charms. But we should also remember to look down when exploring the city — not at our phones, but at the innumerable features at our feet. Here are 15 pavement oddities we’ve spotted on our walks around the capital.
The only way to avoid a growing support problem or a temporary slowdown is to allocate time to develop admin tools from day one. Provide useful administrative tools for your team, and other internal employees to leverage. Ideally, you want to write administrative tools along with the features. Include supportability in the acceptance criteria, or design documents. There will always be some support load the tools won’t be able to meet, but overall, the load will not grow. There is always time to improve the tools built into the development budget.
