On 2 January 2018, news broke of a novel class of security flaws in modern processors. Known inside the chip and software industry since the middle of 2017, and deeply embedded in the fundamental design of the processors, the problems were reported by the Google Project Zero security research team -- one of several to discover the flaws -- to exist in some form in most Intel CPUs since 1995.
Rutland Police have announced they have broken up the county's biggest-ever cannabis factory, following a dawn raid on the premises of a major datacentre. "More than 2,000 plants and 50 kilos of dried cannabis bush were seized," detective inspector Pete Roach said in a statement on Friday. "It seems the legitimate business of the company was being used as a highly successful smokescreen for the real operation."
It's Thanksgiving week in the US, and most of our staff is recovering from food and family rather than a Friday at the office. As such, we're resurfacing this story of visiting old nuclear bunkers in the UK (you know, in case you need a break from family this weekend). This story originally ran on November 19, 2015, and it appears unchanged below. Press events are usually decadent affairs of food, drink, and well-dressed executives in up-market hotels. Not this one.
@nerdware Yes, I should have said out-of-order vN architecture. If you dutifully halt and wait for a stable state before continuing, you'll be fine. Just slower. I must revisit comp.arch; it's normally too noodly for me...
@seatrout <reads> hmmm, parallels with political radicalisation of Protestant evangelicalism? <reads more> aha, he got there before me... Intellectual justification of anti-intellectualism is fascinating to behold among the fulminatariat.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
