Hailey Bieber, like most of us, is tired.

“Sorry, I’m yawning. I’m sorry!,” she tells InStyle over the phone.

The supermodel just returned to LA from Milan Fashion Week, where she was spotted with bleached brows and significantly darker hair than her signature buttery blonde.

But we get it. Feeling utterly exhausted is a 2020 mood, thanks to the stress of socially distancing for several months since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic, and the impending Presidential election (more on that later). Plus, being jet lagged isn’t exactly the best feeling to add to that mix.

That’s why Bieber, who’s known for having fun with her beauty looks (remember her cotton candy pink hair?), mostly prefers to keep her routine low key when she’s not on a shoot or a runway — especially while quarantining

New York-based decentralized computing network Blockstack which announced its proof of transfer mining algorithm earlier this year has announced that it has now launched Krypton – the third phase of the Stacks 2.0 testnet.

Its next milestone will focus on testing Stacks 1.0-2.0 upgrades with integration and testing with the Bitcoin (BTC) testnet.

Krypton is an important development in Blockstack’s novel mining consensus mechanism Proof-of-Transfer (PoX). This uses Bitcoin to secure an independent blockchain network, called Stacks 2.0.

PoX makes it also possible to reward Stacks token holders with bitcoin BTC, a feature called Stacking. With Stacking, Stacks (STX) token holders lock up STX tokens for a certain amount of time. Doing this helps to secure the network by acting as validators on the network, incentivizing honest behavior on the part of miners.

Developers and miners will be able to interact with the full Proof-of-Transfer mechanism, and users will soon

Computer antivirus pioneer John McAfee tweeted last year he hadn’t filed a tax return in eight years.

It was okay, he explained. He was “done making money.” His “net income is negative.”

“Taxation is illegal,” he said.

Now McAfee has been arrested in Spain on tax evasion charges. The U.S. Justice Department has accused him of failing to file tax returns from 2014 to 2018 despite making millions, according to an indictment unsealed on Monday.

He allegedly made money from “promoting crypto-currencies, consulting work,

US Supreme Court justices peppered lawyers for Google and Oracle with questions on computer code and copyright Wednesday in a court clash which could have major ramifications for the technology sector and digital innovation.

Oral arguments were heard in a decade-old legal battle between the two Silicon Valley giants stemming from Oracle’s claim that Google illegally copied parts of the Java programming language to develop its Android mobile operating system.

The case revolves around whether copyright protection should be extended to application software interfaces (APIs), or bit of code that allow programs and apps to work together, and if so, whether Google’s implementation was a “fair use” of copyrighted material.

In the court session held remotely, Google attorney Thomas Goldstein argued that the practice of reusing software interfaces “is critical to modern interoperable computer software” and allows developers “to write millions of creative applications that are used by more than

Last May, I had a discussion with Peter Chapman, CEO of IonQ, a start-up quantum computing company.  Before coming to IonQ, Chapman worked for Amazon, where he was responsible for all the technical complexities of Amazon Prime.  IonQ had accomplished a lot in the twelve months that Chapman had been at the helm, so I was looking forward to talking to him. 

My biggest surprise during that discussion was that IonQ was simultaneously working on its next three generations of its trapped-ion quantum computers – 5th, 6th, and 7th generations. 

In a recent follow-up with Chapman, including Chris Monroe, IonQ’s Co-founder and Chief Scientist, we discussed IonQ’s release of its 5th generation quantum hardware.  Keep in mind that the 6th and 7th generations are still in development. Chapman said that each generation would be smaller and more powerful than its predecessor when released.  Although he

Google and Oracle faced off Wednesday before the US Supreme Court in a multibillion dollar battle that could have a major effect on how companies develop software in the future. 

The two tech giants are clashing over the architecture of Google’s Android operating system, the dominant mobile software on the planet. At the center of the fight is a question of copyright protections for application programming interfaces, or APIs, which govern how code communicates with other bits of code. 

Android was built in part by using APIs from Java, which was developed by Sun Microsystems. Oracle bought Sun in 2010 and later sued Google for allegedly illegal use of the software. The settlement could be worth almost $9 billion

DoNotPay, a bot-based platform that helps consumers fight for their rights, is rolling out a new email service that automatically applies for refunds, cancels subscriptions, fights spam, and more by scanning messages in people’s inboxes.

The launch comes in a year in which the San Francisco-based company has seen a surge in demand due to the global pandemic, with consumers contending with canceled flights, closed gyms, and monthly memberships to reconsider due to reduced income. As the world transitions to the “new normal” post-lockdown, many consumers will still be feeling the pinch, putting DoNotPay in a strong position to apply its “robo lawyer” to more industries and use-cases. The company recently secured $12 million in funding to help it do just that, with backing from big-name investors including Coatue Management, Andreessen Horowitz, and Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund.

DoNotPay first came to prominence back in 2015 when British entrepreneur Josh Browder

Search marketing is a popular inbound marketing strategy.

Search influences a purchase enormously.

Up to 72% of buyers start research for a product or service by consulting Google.

Smart SEO marketing guarantees you a steady, ever-increasing flow of traffic, leads, and sales. But to nail it and reap all these benefits you need excellent SEO copywriters. Sadly, most brands trip up when hiring writers. Consequently, they don’t see results.

In this post, I will reveal three common mistakes companies make when hiring an SEO copywriter. Better yet, the post will suggest fixes for the missteps.

Mistake #1: Asking for academic degrees

A significant number of companies require degrees like BA In Communication Science or Creative Writing for writers to join their staff.

But that’s a massive blunder.

First, there are very few universities that teach SEO copywriting. Most college classes teach dry, formal, offline media stuff that doesn’t work online.

Robotics startup Genrobotics on Wednesday said it has raised INR 2.5 crore in Pre Series A funding round led by the company’s existing investor Unicorn India Ventures.

Billionaire businessman Anand Mahindra and SEA are the new investors who participated in the round.

Death of three people in Calicut, Kerala due to asphyxiation inside a manhole led the foundation of Genrobotics in 2016, when the company’s founders Vimal Govind, Rashid K, Arun George and Nikhil NP were still in college. Over the next year, the quartet built Bandicoot, a robotic machine engineered to clean any type of sewer manholes, to eradicate

Netflix

The holidays are right around the corner, and Netflix is about to drop some new, festive must-see shows and movies to help get you in the spirit!

Netflix’s jam-packed holiday programming begins no later than Oct. 28, with the streamer’s first release, Holidate, followed by Operation Christmas Drop on Nov. 5.

The latter stars Kat Graham, who also appeared in 2018’s Netflix Christmas rom-com The Holiday Calendar. She recently told PEOPLE that she loved the “humanitarian aspect” of this particular script.

“I love the fact that it was about a real mission that the Air Force does every year,” Graham said. “I loved that I was playing a congresswoman’s aide, [working] to shut down the mission. In a lot of ways it was the opposite to our last film, as this character was a bit of a Grinch. It was so much fun to read, and even more fun
