Craigslist transaction at Police station By:raj
The police department in Columbia, Missouri, announced Wednesday that its lobby will be open 24/7 for people making Craigslist transactions or any type of exchange facilitated by Internet services. The decision fits into a broader trend that has been gaining traction over the past couple of years.
Internet listings like Craigslist are, of course, a quick and convenient way to buy, sell, barter, and generally deal with junk. But the worst part about using them is actually having to meet someone and navigate the moment of trust when money changes hands. The item being sold could be broken or fake, and the money being used to buy it could be counterfeit. Or something even more sinister could go on.

A few years ago, Google’s human resources department noticed a problem: A
lot of women were leaving the company. Like the majority of Silicon
Valley software firms, Google is staffed mostly by men, and executives
have long made it a priority to increase the number of female employees.
But the fact that women were leaving Google wasn’t just a gender equity
problem—it was affecting the bottom line. Unlike in most sectors of the
economy, the market for top-notch tech employees is stretched
incredibly thin. Google fights for potential workers with Apple,
Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and hordes of startups, so every employee’s
departure triggers a costly, time-consuming recruiting process. Click here to read moreAdd Comment - 1673 days agoThe Best Time to Buy Anything During the Year By:raj

Almost 75 percent of the energy consumed by free versions of apps is exhausted serving up ads, tracking user information and conducting other hidden tasks, unrelated to the application’s core functions, according to the study, entitled “Where is the energy spent inside my app?” by computer scientist Abhinav Pathak of Purdue University, Indiana.
