Blockchain: Where does the real potential lie?

The hype around blockchain technology has been sufficiently steady since its arrival. But UCLA professor Ramesh Srinivasan reveals the real potential in this relatively new technology is far from its connection to cryptocurrency.To tap this potential, it's necessary to move away from the individualistic intentions to which blockchain so often applies. For example, taking root in areas that have fallen victim to disaster capitalism like Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.To overcome these...

Mc Carthy column: Valley sisters’ good will reached all the way to Mexico. And Fiji. And Samoa. And Tahiti. And beyond…

This is a tale of two sisters who embarked on a service project in 2014 that was so grand in scope, so implausible that even their own parents thought it would be near impossible for them to succeed. But, they did. Taylor Jackson, then 10, and her younger sister, Jordyn, 5, wanted to deliver soccer balls to poor and orphaned children around world. Not collect the balls and have them shipped, or drop them off at local charities to be put in care packages with other items, and hope they got in the...

The tale of this Marine in the ‘other’ Iwo Jima photo can, at last, be told

Bill Seltzer is the fourth Marine on the right in the photo above, the one with his foot on the stump in front of the American flag flying over Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima, 75 years ago this Sunday, Feb. 23. We’ve all seen the iconic picture AP Photographer Joe Rosenthal took of the flag being raised, but not many have seen this one he took of a platoon of Marines who made it to the top, smiling and celebrating in front of the flag. Those smiles would soon fade as they made the treacherous journey...

2 Y Combinator-backed startups are feuding over an ad campaign, and it's yet another example of how San Francisco startups compete in the city's ultra-crowded tech market

Onboarding startup Rippling bought targeted ads in San Francisco attacking competitor Gusto's focus on small businesses. The ad reads: "Outgrowing Gusto? Presto Change-o." Rippling's comparative advertising is legal, as long as what is stated therein is accurate. But Gusto wrote a cease-and-desist letter stating that the company believes it is not, threatening legal action if it's not removed. The whole ordeal "started to feel like an episode of Silicon Valley," according to a Rippling spokesp...

The digital economy benefits the 1%. Here’s how to change that.

Intentional or not, certain inequalities are inherent in a digital economy that is structured and controlled by a few corporations that don't represent the interests or the demographics of the majority.While concern and anger are valid reactions to these inequalities, UCLA professor Ramesh Srinivasan also sees it as an opportunity to take action. Srinivasan says that the digital economy can be reshaped to benefit the 99 percent if we protect laborers in the gig economy, get independent journalis...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

Director Christian Sesma had long wanted to work on a gritty and high stakes heist movie inspired by some classics, but he didn’t want it filmed just anywhere — he wanted it filmed in the place where he was born, raised and still lives now: the Coachella Valley. Naturally, that was the location for his next project, which just wrapped up filming. “Pay Dirt” stars actors Val Kilmer, Luke Goss and Nick Vallelonga.

The war against space hackers: how the JPL works to secure its missions from nation-state adversaries

What the infosec world calls Advanced Persistent Threats — meaning, generally, nation-state adversaries — hover outside its online borders, constantly seeking access to its “ground data systems,” its networks on Earth, which in turn connect to the ground relay stations through which those spacecraft are operated. Their presumptive goal is to exfiltrate secret data and proprietary tec...
