Megan Farokhmanesh: I guess my question then is: is there any payoff that would make it all worth it? The Handmaid’s Tale, as a book, as a contained single season experience, uses those hard moments to demonstrate what Devon mentioned above. It’s a movement that, in the future, serves as a history lesson, a teaching moment on mistakes to not be repeated. But with season 1 relying so heavily on the book’s material, we’re heading into uncharted territory with season 2. The show’s creators have carte blanche to play in the nightmare world Atwood created. How do they match the pace and intensity they’ve set? How do they balance meaningful stakes with reward when so much has already been lost?

Sci-Hub obtains paywalled articles using leaked credentials. [2] [11] The source of the credentials used by Sci-Hub is unclear. [7] Some appear to have been donated, [2] some were apparently sold before going to Sci-Hub, [37] and some appear to have been obtained via phishing and were then used by Sci-Hub. [38] [11] Elbakyan denies personally sending any phishing emails and said, "The exact source of the passwords was never personally important to me." [7] According to The Scholarly Kitchen, a blog established by the Society for Scholarly Publishing whose members are involved in legal action against Sci-Hub, credentials used by Sci-Hub to access paywalled articles are correlated to access of other information on university networks (such as cyber spying on universities) and credential sales in black markets. [39] Several articles have reported that Sci-Hub has penetrated the computer networks of more than 370 universities in 39 countries. These include more than 150 institutions in the US, more than 30 in Canada, 39 in the UK and more than 10 in Sweden. The universities in the UK include Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial and King's College, London.

The number of articles added per day for the January 1, 2014 LibGen database dump was provided by Cabanac and corresponds to Figure 1 of ( Cabanac, 2016). Notice the major discrepancy whereby articles from the April 7, 2017 database dump were added at later dates.

Forgotten Weapons: “Project Ultra: Germany Wants a Stronger Compact Pistol”
At night, Offred likes to remember her former life. She recalls talking to her college friend, Moira, in her dorm room. She remembers being a child and going to a park with her mother, where they saw a group of women and a few men burning pornographic magazines. Offred has forgotten a large chunk of time, which she thinks might be the fault of an injection or pill the authorities gave her. She remembers waking up somewhere and screaming, demanding to know what they had done with her daughter. The authorities told Offred she was unfit, and her daughter was with those fit to care for her. They showed her a photograph of her child wearing a white dress, holding the hand of a strange woman. As she recounts these events, Offred imagines she is telling her story to someone, telling things that she cannot write down, because writing is forbidden.
This piece was an eye-opener for me. I’ve always been opposed to Sci-Hub (and have said so publicly many times) because of its massive copyright infringements, but had no idea about the other criminality it potentially involves.
• Podcasting software is starting to integrate BitTorrent to help podcasters deal with the download demands of their MP3 "radio" programs. Specifically, Juice and Miro (formerly known as Democracy Player) support automatic processing of .torrent files from RSS feeds. Similarly, some BitTorrent clients, such as μTorrent, are able to process web feeds and automatically download content found within them.
One method Sci-Hub uses to bypass paywalls is by obtaining leaked authentication credentials for educational institutions ( Elbakyan, 2017). These credentials enable Sci-Hub to use institutional networks as proxies and gain subscription journal access. While the open access movement has progressed slowly ( Björk, 2017), Sci-Hub represents a seismic shift in access to scholarly literature. Since its inception, Sci-Hub has experienced sustained growth, with spikes in interest and awareness driven by legal proceedings, service outages, news coverage, and social media ( Figure 1 and Figure 1—figure supplement 1). Here we investigate the extent to which Sci-Hub provides access to scholarly literature. If Sci-Hub’s coverage is sufficiently broad, then a radical shift may be underway in how individuals access scholarly literature.

-The sight horrifies Offred but substitutes feelings to an emotional "blankness."
In terms of plot, that’s about it, aside from the brief flashbacks, most of which show June surrounded by Luke, Moira and Grandma Holly during the final months of her first pregnancy. But you only have to observe Moss’s body language to understand how important “Holly” is to Offred’s story. The way she breathes and blinks in the episode’s opening close-up is enough to contain the torrent of emotions — terror, hope, confusion, exhaustion, desperation — she must feel when she realizes she is alone. In the past day, she has been raped, has held her daughter for the first time in years and has watched the father of the child she’s carrying get shot at and dragged away. He could be hurt, if not dead. Even as she silently panics, you can feel a plan forming in Offred’s resourceful mind.

The bomb is actually an explosive contained within a Madball, a line of gross-out toys popular in the mid 1980s, giving rubber balls disgusting characteristics and names. In the case of Art3mis' improvised bomb, the culprit is "Dust Brain," and he's not the first to appear. When the IOI drones approach Wade's trailer to plant explosives, graffiti of Repvile can be seen on a lower wall. (A previous version of this post stated Repvile was the bomb. We apologize for this unintended slight to Dust Brain's legacy.) 12. The Krull Glaive Easter Egg

Maybe you meant to write "bookstore" rather than "library"? I know it is a false friend in some languages. The comparison works better with bookstores anyway, since they are for-profit and selling books is their main source of profit.

Offred recalls a documentary about the Holocaust in which the former mistress of one of the Nazi guards was interviewed. Offred's mother liked to watch such historical programs, and always explained them carefully to Offred, even when she was too young to understand. The guard's mistress denied knowing about the death camps and maintained that the guard, her lover, was not a monster. Offred remembers that the woman committed suicide just days after the interview.

Elbakyan responded in her blog: “Was it intended by the authors that their work will be hidden behind paywalls forever?”
Sci-Hub’s coverage of 2016 articles in open access journals was just 32.7% compared to 78.8% for articles in toll access journals ( Figure 6—figure supplement 1). Upon further investigation, we discovered that in June 2015, Sci-Hub ceased archiving articles in PeerJ, eLife, and PLOS journals, although they continued archiving articles in other open access journals such as Scientific Reports, Nature Communications, and BMC-series journals. Sci-Hub currently redirects requests for these delisted journals to the publisher’s site, unless it already possesses the article, in which case it serves the PDF. These findings suggest Sci-Hub prioritizes circumventing access barriers rather than creating a single repository containing every scholarly article. Coverage by category of access status

Science-Hub works in a completely different way than the other two: researchers, students, and other academics donate their institutional login to Schi-Hub, and when you search for a paper they download it through that account. After the articles has been downloaded they store a copy of it on their own servers. You can basically download 99% of all scientific articles and papers on SciHub.

Many researchers from different parts of the world facing a huge difficulty in downloading peer-reviewed journal articles and books. one of the main reason is that the cost of the journal subscription and lack of funding. when open access journals fail to give enough resources, researchers turning into the Scihub kind of sites to download peer-reviewed paid articles.

The geography of Sci-Hub usage generally looks like a map of scientific productivity, but with some of the richer and poorer science-focused nations flipped. The smaller countries have stories of their own. Someone in Nuuk, Greenland, is reading a paper about how best to provide cancer treatment to indigenous populations. Research goes on in Libya, even as a civil war rages there. Someone in Benghazi is investigating a method for transmitting data between computers across an air gap. Far to the south in the oil-rich desert, someone near the town of Sabha is delving into fluid dynamics. Mapping IP addresses to real-world locations can paint a false picture if people hide behind web proxies or anonymous routing services. But according to Elbakyan, fewer than 3% of Sci-Hub users are using those.

There seem to be two camps as far as Ready Player One is concerned, those who have read the books (Who tend to dislike the movie) and those who haven't (Who tend to like the movie). I'm in the latter group and am very thankful for this. When the trailer came out I was unimpressed and didn't get onboard with the hype at all, yes I was impressed with all the pop culture references and characters but I figured it would be all flash and no substance. Thankfully I couldn't have been anymore wrong, Read Player One has plenty of substance, emotion and charm and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Set in a near dystopian world where people use a virtual reality world called the Oasis to escape their lives it tells the story of one player and his efforts participating in a competition that with decide the fate of the entire universe (Oasis). The plot if fantastic and very well handled, the movie looks like a billion dollars, the cast did a decent enough job and the pop culture references though thick and fast didn't overwhelm the movie like I feared they would. From Overwatchs Tracer, Streetfighters Chun-Li & Ryu, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Iron Giant, Chucky, Freddy Kreuger, Mortal Kombats Goro, Gundam, Mech-Godzilla, King Kong, and countless more I being a big ol'nerd really appreciated this. Combined with the incredible mostly 80's soundtrack it's a sight to behold. The movie wrapped up nicely and went in directions I didn't expect, I'm suitably impressed and would love to see more. If it's very different than the book I understand peoples anger, for me however this was fantastic. The Good: Looks amazing Solid plot and delivery Pop culture references are charming The Bad: Honestly nothing springs to mind Things I Learnt From This Movie: I'm still not impressed with Gundam People CAN swear in Spielberg movies Old Simon Pegg looks like a tall hobbit Artemis is the offspring of an elf and a porcupine

Judging from donations, many users appear to value Sci-Hub’s service. In the past, Sci-Hub accepted donations through centralized and regulated payment processors such as PayPal, Yandex, WebMoney, and QiQi ( DeMarco et al., 2015a; Woltermann, 2015). Now however, Sci-Hub only advertises donation via Bitcoin, presumably to avoid banking blockades or government seizure of funds. Since the ledger of Bitcoin transactions is public, we can evaluate the donation activity to known Sci-Hub addresses (1K4t2vSBSS2xFjZ6PofYnbgZewjeqbG1TM, 14ghuGKDAPdEcUQN4zuzGwBUrhQgACwAyA, 1EVkHpdQ8VJQRpQ15hSRoohCztTvDMEepm). We find that, prior to 2018, these addresses have received 1,232 donations, totaling 94.494 ( Figure 10). Using the US dollar value at the time of transaction confirmation, Sci-Hub has received an equivalent of $69,224 in bitcoins. 85.467 bitcoins have been withdrawn from the Sci-Hub addresses via 174 transactions. Since the price of bitcoins has risen, the combined US dollar value at time of withdrawal was $421,272. At the conclusion of 2017, the Sci-Hub accounts had an outstanding balance of 9.027 bitcoins, valued at roughly $120,000. In response to this study’s preprint ( Himmelstein et al., 2017a), Sci-Hub tweeted: “the information on donations … is not very accurate, but I cannot correct it: that is confidential.” Therefore, presumably, Sci-Hub has received considerable donations via alternative payment systems or to unrevealed Bitcoin addresses, which our audit did not capture. Since we do not know the identity of the depositors, another possibility would be that Sci-Hub transfered bitcoins from other addresses it controlled to the identified donation addresses.

I'm a PhD student. To graduate, I need publications. The quality of my publications, and hence my possibility of graduation, is evaluated based on the reputation of the conferences I publish in. The same applies to a PhD graduate trying to get into a post-doc position, or a post-doc trying to get assistant professorship. For historical reasons, many of the reputable conferences are closed and ran by publishing houses that charge unfair money for them. We are trying to change that.
The publishers argue the new mode of digital delivery has come with an array of additional costs. “We’re continuing to invest significantly in digital infrastructure, which has a lot of fixed costs that repeat each year. We’re employing thousands of technologists,” said Elsevier’s Gemma Hersh. “So it’s not the case that digital is cheaper.”

Here’s another fun detail: I watched the show with a close male friend this time around. It was his first time. The experience became, for me, just as much about watching him absorb the show as it was for me to revisit it. The Handmaid’s Tale is about women’s suffering. It’s a story about dystopia and extreme consequence, but it’s not so far flung that we don’t all see a little bit of ourselves or our real world in it. The show doesn’t shy away from this; sometimes it even seems to revel in it. Watching my male companion take this all in with every flinch, cringe, or pillow hug felt strangely satisfying, as much as if I’d grabbed him by the shoulders and violently shaken him while shouting about misogyny. It’s all so bad that no one can deny how awful it is.

On May 20, 2015, the government of Israel blocked all access to the official downloads of Popcorn Time, following a lawsuit from its biggest cable and satellite providers for copyright infringement. Although the download sites were blocked, internet users still possessing a copy of the installation file and/or the program were not affected, and there were other sharing sites that distributed installation files. Less than a month later, the government reversed the ban.

The process is quite alarming – we’re seeing a sustained password guessing attack on our password management system. It’s coming from a Tencent cloud server (XXX.51.XXX.220) which we’ve now locked. The guessing rate was quite low but still successful, so I suspect it’s testing a list of users/passwords gathered from elsewhere.
Set in a dystopic 2045 where climate change, overpopulation, and a myriad of woes has left a planet to rot, Ready Player One cheerfully sidesteps all of its potential grimness by focusing on its own in-universe escape: a massive virtual reality system called the OASIS. Through the opioid of technology, the entire world populace abandons its problems as folks become whoever they want in a massive interactive game with its own currency. However, the people of 2045 are a lot like audiences of 2018, in that they just want to relive Gen-X and Millennial glory days.
