The Indiana Jones saga began in 1981 with the release of the film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. A prequel, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, followed in 1984 and the sequel Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989. Soon thereafter, Marvel Comics picked up the franchise and began publication of The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones in 1983 and Dark Horse Comics jumped in on the action in 1991 when it earned comic book right to the character. Check out the smoking hot Indiana Jones cosplay pictorial below.

In her first appearances she was depicted as a character completely devoted to the Joker, totally oblivious to his psychotic nature and his obvious lack of affection for her – a characterization that has remained more or less consistent throughout her subsequent appearances. Her name is a play on the word ‘harlequin’.

I hate to steal anyone’s thunder but I’m afraid Eugene did not pass the “Turing test”, the test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior. Media outlets are reporting that “Eugene”, an AI created by a team based in Russia, has passed a Turing test organized by the University of Reading, by duping one in three judges. What they are not mentioning however, is that Eugene cheated…
The UK government has said it wants to hand out life sentences to anyone found guilty of a cyberattack that results in loss of life, serious illness, serious injury, or serious damage to national security (or a “significant risk thereof”. The plan, which frighteningly, is broadly written, is proposed as an update to Britain’s Computer Misuse Act 1990 and would also hand out harsher sentences to any hacker carrying out industrial (commercial) espionage. Even minor hacking crimes can result in sentences up to 14 years.

Notice anything “off” about the picture above, like maybe it’s not a photograph but rather a hyper-realistic painting by Ottawa, Ontario artist Sheryl Luxemburg. Although her paintings look almost too real to be true, her technique is “classical” in nature.
As all website operators know, Google can be a bit iron-handed (and vague) when it comes to AdSense ad policies. Website’s must follow strict guidelines on content, placement of ads, and adhere to agreements prohibiting them from running certain competing ads on their sites. And if something goes wrong or Google perceives the website owner has broken the rules, AdSense accounts are shut down – permanently. There is no resolution for the “kiss of death” either. Yesterday a self-proclaimed disgruntled AdSense employee released a bombshell, claiming that Google purposely rips off its AdSense clients through program policies designed to shutdown accounts with opportune timing (for Google). Google swiftly denied the claims.
