They adapted it and the rest is history.

 
Corning is to glass what Western Electric / Bell Labs was to communications.

Ashley Madison’s hackers say ‘nobody was watching’
Cyber security experts said data dumps on Tuesday and Thursday by the group appeared to be genuine. Tuesday’s release had customer information that included U.S. government officials, British civil servants and high-level executives at European and North America corporations.
Two Canadian law firms filed a $578 million class-action lawsuit against the companies that run extramarital-affairs website Ashley Madison over a recent hack that exposed the personal information of about 39 million users.

Hack Your Way To Scientific Glory

You’re a social scientist with a hunch: The U.S. economy is affected by whether Republicans or Democrats are in office. Try to show that a connection exists, using real data going back to 1948. For your results to be publishable in an academic journal, you’ll need to prove that they are “statistically significant” by achieving a low enough p-value.

My latest innovation that should be available in your app store soon: PhoneBuoy, an application that senses when a phone has been dropped into the water and activates the buoyancy chip to cause the phone to float to the surface. You can even set it on time delay to freak out your kids.

Coca-Cola Funds Scientists Who Shift Blame for Obesity Away From Bad Diets

Coca-Cola, the world’s largest producer of sugary beverages, is backing a new “science-based” solution to the obesity crisis: To maintain a healthy weight, get more exercise and worry less about cutting calories.

The beverage giant has teamed up with influential scientists who are advancing this message in medical journals, at conferences and through social media. To help the scientists get the word out, Coke has provided financial and logistical support to a new nonprofit organization called the Global Energy Balance Network, which promotes the argument that weight-conscious Americans are overly fixated on how much they eat and drink while not paying enough attention to exercise.



  
When I was a personal trainer I used to stress just the opposite. That of all the components of health what you put in your body is of primary importance even moreso than exercise.{#Yes}
