After an unfortunate case of mistaken identity, an Alaskan couple was overcome with relief after discovering that their son was actually alive and well at his girlfriend’s home.

Karen and Jay Priest received a knock on their Palmer, Alaska, home at 3 a.m. on Thursday from a state trooper, who told them that their 29-year-old son Justin had died in a car crash, the Associated Press reports.

Ryan Hoover was dancing with some friends at DNA Lounge in San Francisco last month when a stranger suddenly turned to him and asked, "Are you Ryan from Product Hunt?" A few weeks later, another person recognized him while he was working out at the gym.

"It’s been happening more than I would expect lately," Hoover says. "It makes me feel slightly more self-conscious and aware of what I’m doing."

Hoover may not be a household name for the general public, but he is a rising star in the tech community. His company Product Hunt is quickly changing the way new apps and tech products get discovered. VCs have used the site to pick their next investments, tech reporters turn to it for signals on apps to cover and founders flock to the service for feedback on products. All of that and Product Hunt hasn’t even celebrated its first anniversary yet Read more…

Samesexmarriage

This week, same-sex couples across the United States flocked to courthouses with hopes of securing marriage licenses and a place in history.

The Supreme Court refused to hear five states’ appeals of pending gay marriage cases on Monday, essentially clearing the way for same-sex marriages to take place in Indiana, Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia and Wisconsin. Those states began issuing marriage certificates earlier this week. The ruling has also affected marriage equality in Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Colorado and Wyoming.

Nikon-1-j4-review-1

The saying "you snooze, you lose" has never been more appropriate than to describe Nikon’s paltry mirrorless camera offerings

Mirrorless cameras are no longer experimental camera products. While Nikon was busy pumping out its millionth entry-level DSLR iteration, camera makers like Olympus, Sony and Panasonic have mounted a huge offensive against DSLRs with smaller, lighter and more affordable interchangeable-lens cameras

Their gamble paid off. Mirrorless cameras are flying off the shelves. Nikon’s been left playing catch-up with its 1 series of mirrorless cameras. Ten 1 series camera releases later, can Nikon finally bring the heat on with the 1 J4 camera? Not if it keeps sticking with the same camera system and strategy. Read more…

Ebolascreening

Feed-twFeed-fb

Customs and health officials began taking the temperatures of passengers arriving at New York’s Kennedy International Airport from three West African countries on Saturday in a stepped-up screening effort meant to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.

Federal health officials said the entry screenings, which will expand to four additional U.S. airports in the next week, add another layer of protection to halt the spread of a disease that has killed more than 4,000 people.

"Already there are 100% of the travelers leaving the three infected countries are being screened on exit. Sometimes multiple times temperatures are checked along that process," Dr. Martin Cetron, director of the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine for the federal Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, said at a briefing at Kennedy.

He survives on a diet of ramen and chips. He spends much of his time reading books and learning Russian. When he does leave his room, it’s with an awareness that he might very well be under surveillance.

Those are the details that have previously come out about Edward Snowden‘s life in Moscow during the past year or so. It paints the picture of a man living the life of a paranoid and lonely college student, but a new documentary offers a much rosier picture of the whistleblower’s time in Russia.

Citizenfour, a new film from journalist Laura Poitras, provides never-before-seen footage of Snowden’s life on the run after lifting a treasure trove of information from the National Security Agency last year. Among the revelations in the film is the fact that Snowden is now living with his girlfriend Lindsay Mills in Moscow Read more…
