2016 Election Forecast | FiveThirtyEight

FIVETHIRTYEIGHT: 2016 ELECTION FORECAST

Statistician Nate Silver runs FiveThirtyEight, a website named after the total number of electors in the Electoral College. Silver and FiveThirtyEight rose to fame during the 2008 primary election, when Silver, then publishing under a pseudonym, garnered praise for his predictions about the Democratic Primary race. Since then, Silver has revealed his identity and continued to publish his predictions for political races across the United States. Silver does not rely on polling information alone; rather, he incorporates multiple polls and weighs polling data with demographic information that indicates who is likely to vote. On FiveThirtyEight: 2016 Election Forecast, visitors can check out Silver’s latest predictions for electoral votes on a state-by-state basis. By clicking on a particular state, visitors can see more detailed information about Silver’s sources and analysis for that state. Visitors can also explore Silver’s predictions for Senate campaigns and read analysis from Silver or some of his colleagues. Those interested in learning more about Silver’s methodology can do so through a link on the bottom of this website. [MMB]

I’m just going to leave it to that. I can’t force you to listen any more than I can force you to take any other good advice, but you’ll be missing out if you don’t.

Gov. Cuomo signed New York Airbnb bill – Business Insider

Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed into law a bill that could deal a blow to Airbnb‘s operations in New York State.

The bill is a follow-on to a 2010 law that bans rentals of less than 30 days in a multi-unit building if the tenant is not present, which was aimed at cracking down on illegal hotels.

The 2016 bill bans the advertising of such rentals, meaning that hosts could not list a full apartment for rent on Airbnb for less than 30-day increments. Hosts caught listing their unit would be fined up to $7,500 — more than most Airbnb hosts in New York make in a year. 

The bill passed in both houses of the New York State Legislature in June and arrived on Cuomo’s desk on Tuesday, meaning that the governor had 10 days to make his decision. The governor signed the bill Friday and Airbnb says it will immediately file a lawsuit against the city of New York and the state attorney general — who are charged with enforcing the new law — on grounds that the law violates the First Amendment and the Communications Decency Act.

A New Era of Internet Attacks Powered by Everyday Devices – The New York Times

The attack on the infrastructure of the internet, which made it all but impossible at times to check Twitter feeds or headlines, was a remarkable reminder about how billions of ordinary web-connected devices — many of them highly insecure — can be turned to vicious purposes. And the threats will continue long after Election Day for a nation that increasingly keeps its data in the cloud and has oftentimes kept its head in the sand.

***

But hundreds of thousands, and maybe millions, of those security cameras and other devices have been infected with a fairly simple program that guessed at their factory-set passwords — often “admin” or “12345” or even, yes, “password” — and, once inside, turned them into an army of simple robots. Each one was commanded, at a coordinated time, to bombard a small company in Manchester, N.H., called Dyn DNS with messages that overloaded its circuits.
