How Much Sleep Do You Need? - Neatorama
"Asap SCIENCE's latest video takes a look at sleep and how much of it allows for us to be productive, or even merely functional. I'm sure nobody is surprised that the news isn't good for people with a newborn in their house. The concept of sleep debt is also discussed. This morning I feel like my sleep debt has accumulated to the point that, soon, someone's Uncle Vito is going to whack me." - Me from Bookmarklet

France's Iliad challenges Sprint for control of T-Mobile | Reuters
"French telecoms company Iliad SA (ILD.PA) has made a surprise offer for T-Mobile US Inc (TMUS.N), setting up a potential bidding war with rival suitor Sprint Corp (S.N), the U.S. mobile carrier now controlled by Japan's Softbank (9984.T). Iliad, which has shaken up the French mobile and broadband market in the past decade with its cheap, pared-down subscriber plans, bid $15 billion in cash for 56.6 percent of T-Mobile US at $33 per share, it said in a statement on Thursday. The French company said it valued the rest of T-Mobile, the fourth-largest U.S. carrier and 66.67 percent-owned by Deutsche Telekom AG (DTEGn.DE), at $40.50 per share." - Me from Bookmarklet

"A gunman killed himself today after shooting his boss in the Bank of America building in Chicago's financial district, authorities said. The victim was Steven LaVoie, the CEO of ArrowStream, which the suspect also worked for, the company said. The suspect, who has not been identified by ArrowStream or police, had been demoted last Friday, police said. "We are deeply saddened and shocked by the events that have occurred today," ArrowStream said in a statement released this evening. "Our focus during this tragedy is to ensure the well being of our ArrowStream family. We want to assure our customers that our business continuity plan is in place, and our operations will continue to function normally." The 59-year-old man shot the 54-year-old man, who ArrowStream later identified as LaVoie, before turning the gun on himself, police said." - Me from Bookmarklet

Microsoft and other U.S. companies had challenged a criminal search warrant for the emails, arguing federal prosecutors cannot seize customer information held in foreign countries." - Me from Bookmarklet

Rare cop-owned drone in California could fly over Bay Area soon | Ars Technica
"Earlier this year, the San Jose Police Department (SJPD) became one of the first local law enforcement agencies in California—and one of the few in the country—to acquire a drone. According to new documents acquired and published Tuesday by MuckRock and Vice, the SJPD acquired a Hexacopter called the Century Neo 660 along with a GoPro video camera, live video transmitter, and more. The nearly $7,000 January purchase was funded through a grant from the Bay Area Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI), a regional arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)." - Me from Bookmarklet
the Arlington, TX (home of the Texas Rangers and "Dallas" Cowboys) PD has owned and operated several drones for at least a year. it hasn't really had any kind of impact beyond making a large hole in their budget. the cost is more than just the drones themselves, obviously. - Big Joe Silence

"While I'd previously caught wind of LG's new 34" monitor, the company's hero shots showed little more than a rectangle covered in Photoshopped fake screens and devoid of local scale. But I just came across photographer Robbie Khan's write-up on his, and seeing it with actual work on it drives home how gi-normous this thing is. Like many of us creatives Khan spends long stretches in front of a monitor, and the 34UM95's 21:9 aspect ration and 3440x1440 resolution would go to good use in his work editing panoramic photos." - Me from Bookmarklet

New statewide water waste prohibitions take effect - Water & Drought - The Sacramento Bee - http://www.sacbee.com/2014...
New statewide water waste prohibitions take effect - Water & Drought - The Sacramento Bee
"It is now illegal for any Californian to hose down a driveway or sidewalk, or allow landscape irrigation to flood off their property. These and other new regulations were approved July 15 by the State Water Resources Control Board in response to the ongoing drought in California. They formally took effect Tuesday after passing a legal review by the state Office of Administrative Law. The new regulations also forbid using a hose to wash a vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shutoff nozzle; and operating a decorative fountain, unless the water recirculates. The regulations apply to both residents and business owners, and will remain in force for 270 days, unless renewed." - Me from Bookmarklet
"In addition, acts of water waste can now be prosecuted as a criminal infraction, subject to fines of $500 per day. And all large local water agencies are now required to activate their water waste contingency plans, if they have one, to limit outdoor landscape watering, which accounts for 50 percent or more of most urban water consumption. If agencies do not have such a plan, they are... more... - Me

Corpse under motel bed for 5 years - Boing Boing
"Police in Mount Laurel, New Jersey found a young woman's corpse under a motel bed and it reportedly had been there for at least five years. A guest discovered the body when searching for the TV remote. “I clean that room every day. I noticed a smell several times, and told my manager,” hotel housekeeper Anita Rodriguez told Empire News. “He told me to just use extra Febreeze in the room and it would go away eventually. I always hated cleaning that room.”" - Me from Bookmarklet

Terrorist attack leaves dozens dead and wounded in China | Fox News Latino
"Dozens of people were killed or wounded in a terrorist attack in Kashgar prefecture in a new episode of violence in China's conflict-ridden northwestern Xinjiang region, the official Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday. The attack, which was not reported until Tuesday, began on Monday near the police station and other government buildings in the town of Elixku, where a group of people armed with knives carried out a series of assaults. Later, some of the attackers headed for the nearby town of Huangdi, where they stabbed civilians and destroyed about 30 vehicles, "killing dozens of Uighurs and Han Chinese," police said. Security forces managed to kill a large number of the dozens of attackers, Xinhua said. Hundreds of people have died in assorted attacks that Beijing attributes to terrorists and in clashes between the authorities and separatist groups that operate in Xinjiang, a region inhabited by Muslim ethnic minorities such as the Uighurs." - Me from Bookmarklet

I know lots of parts of the U.S. get far worse weather but the whole point of SoCal is that we're not *supposed* to get shitty weather, and when people are getting struck by lightning when most of the Southland has blazing hot, sunny, cloudless skies, I'm pretty sure that's not normal.

VIDEO: Five Minutes Of The ‘Family Guy/The Simpsons’ Crossover Episode

"If you’re dying to see what it will be like when Family Guy meets The Simpsons, Fox has released an exclusive teaser for the episode over at Entertainment Weekly. It’s straight from the Family Guy panel at Comic-Con and it’s pretty much what you’d expect from your normal episode of either series. There’s Bart hanging with Stewie, Homer and Peter Griffin having Family Guy-esque cutaway gags (and making fun of them in the process), and a massive fight that tried to top of all of those previous chicken fights. There’s even that extra special cameo we mentioned, the one you can get a taste of above, but it certainly doesn’t end there for the surprises. If anything, I’d say this five-minute clip stuffs too much into it all. How are you going to fill an entire hour with this stuff?" - Me from Bookmarklet

The App I Used to Break Into My Neighbor’s Home | Threat Level | WIRED
"Less than an hour later, I owned a key to his front door. What I didn’t tell my neighbor was that I spent about 30 seconds in the stairwell scanning his keys with software that would let me reproduce them with no specialized skills whatsoever. The iPhone app I used wasn’t intended for anything so nefarious: KeyMe was designed to let anyone photograph their keys and upload them to the company’s servers. From there, they can be 3-D printed and mail-ordered in a variety of novelty shapes, from a bottle opener to Kanye West’s head. Or they can be cut from blanks at one of KeyMe’s five kiosks in the New York City area." - Me from Bookmarklet
Thus were dazzle keys invented: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Meg VMeg from Android
You don't even need to get it printed. Just take a picture and grab an empty aluminum can. All you're doing is bumping the pins, either way. - NOT THE CRICKET
The solution would be to use a hermaphroditic pair: key and lock. Male portion of key is only exposed when aligned pressure on the locks male portion and key's female portion, match up to release. - NOT THE CRICKET
Hell, if you've seen the LOCK, all you need to do is pick out a blank with the appropriate keyway, grind it down a bit and, well, James has already mentioned bumping :-) There's no such thing as security given someone with the determination to bypass it and the time to do so. That's why the stuff I want to keep secure stays about my person while I'm awake and under my pillow while I sleep. But then, I'm paranoid. - Slippy: Potato Croquette

Google reportedly seals deal to gobble up Twitch for $1 billion | PCWorld
"It's been nearly two months since Variety and The Wall Street Journal reported Google was "in talks" to purchase popular games streaming site Twitch.tv for a billion dollars. According to VentureBeat, we can now upgrade the status from "in talks" to "sealed deal." The report is unconfirmed currently, with VentureBeat only citing "sources familiar with the matter," but it'd hardly be a surprise if true. Details are scarce though—neither company has spoken on the matter, and there's no news of whether just Twitch or all of the empire formerly know as Justin.tv is also part of the deal. We also don't know whether YouTube's own streaming service would continue to function separately from Google. Here's hoping that if the acquisition rumors are true, Google+ won't become mandatory for Twitch accounts." - Me from Bookmarklet
