US Treasury Nominee Yellen Wants to Encourage Cryptocurrencies -- 'For Legitimate Activities'  

Business Insider reports: The bitcoin price was set for its biggest one-week fall since September on Saturday morning, having slipped around 10% since Monday... Bitcoin came under selling pressure this week after Janet Yellen, Joe Biden's pick for Treasury secretary, suggested the use of cryptocurrencies should be "curtailed" because they were used mainly for "illicit financing". Writing at Nasdaq.com on Thursday, CoinDesk shared a link to U.S. Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen'

Are We Slowing Global Warming?  

This week New York Magazine featured a new article by journalist David Wallace-Wells about the state of the fight against global warming. He warns that "Already, the planet is warmer, at just 1.2 degrees, than it has ever been..." But there's also some good news: Just a half-decade ago, it was widely believed that a "business as usual" emissions path would bring the planet four or five degrees of warming — enough to make large parts of Earth effectively uninhabitable. Now, thanks to t

GitHub Reverses Takedown of Code for Anime Torrent Site Despite Film Group's DMCA  

Inside.com's developer newsletter spotted this code repository story: GitHub posted a DMCA notice it received from the Motion Picture Association (MPA) last week asking the platform to take down a repository associated with NYAA.si, a popular torrent site specializing in anime content. The DMCA captured attention as the code doesn't belong to the MPA. Rather, the MPA argues the code is used for the development of the site, which allows for copyright infringement, while the repo also makes it po

SpaceX Re-Schedules Record-Breaking Launch With 143 Satellites to Sunday  

Ars Technica reported Saturday that "The Falcon 9 rocket was ready. Its payload of 143 satellites were ready. But Mother Nature was not ready." Although SpaceX pressed ahead with fueling of the Falcon 9 booster on Saturday morning, the company scrubbed the launch attempt of the Transporter-1 mission a few minutes before the window opened due to weather. Conditions at Cape Canaveral violated the electrical field rule for a safe launch. The company now plans to try to launch again on Sunday mo

The most noteworthy change in this update is what's not included. Chrome 88 lays Adobe Flash and the FTP protocol to rest. RIP circa-2000 Internet. Neither comes as a surprise, though it's poetic that they're being buried together. Adobe halted Flash Player downloads at the end of 2020, making good on a promi

Are Experts Underselling the Effectiveness of Covid-19 Vaccines?

The experts were also [at the time] unsure how much ordinary masks would help." But are they now spreading a similarly misguided pessimism about vaccines? Right now, public discu
