NYC mayor has a $10 billion plan to protect Manhattan from rising seas

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced a huge climate-focused infrastructure effort on Thursday, calling for a project that could, among other things, extend lower Manhattan two blocks into the East River and cost as much as $10 billion. Sea level rise due to climate change has long been a cause of concern for New York City. According to the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resilience survey, released today, 37 percent of lower Manhattan will be at risk for storm surges by 2050. By 2100, sea levels could rise by as much as six feet, scientists say. “We don’t debate global...

'We're back'? Facebook struggles into day 2 of global outage

Facebook struggled to restore its services fully on Thursday after a 17-hour partial outage made the world's largest social network inaccessible to users across the globe, driving a wave of online complaints. The number of reports on the crowd-sourced DownDetector website - one of the Internet's most used sources of numbers on outages - peaked at just over 12,000, gradually falling to a couple of hundreds by early Thursday. But with thousands of users complaining on Twitter under the hashtag #facebookdown, a number of media reports put the number affected in the millions. The BBC and a handful of other...

Satellite images show the nightmare bomb cyclone whirling across the US

The bomb cyclone that pummeled Colorado and killed a state trooper on Wednesday is now traveling east, unleashing snow, rain, and powerful winds through the midwest today. It’s a “historic March blizzard,” the National Weather Service says — and satellites have captured eerie views of the storm from space. It’s called a “bomb cyclone” because of the rapid drop in pressure at the center of the storm, according to Jennifer Francis, a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center. If a storm’s pressure drops by more than 24 millibars over 24 hours, then it qualifies. “And that definitely happened,”...

We wondered how it was possible that the largest and most influential technology company in the world could have a day-long service disruption and basically say nothing about it except for a curt and cryptic tweet. Facebook eventually said that the outage was the result of a “server configuration change” — an impenetrable combination of words that translates to “we played ourselves.” The company wasn’t being attacked, so why not just come clean early? The Verge, The New York Times,...

Facebook is losing two top executives after the company’s privacy pivot

Facebook is losing two of its top executives, Chris Cox and Chris Daniels, who served as the company’s chief product officer and the head of WhatsApp, respectively. The departures come just a week after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced plans to reshape the company around private messaging apps and after a year of wide-scale privacy scandals. Cox has been with Facebook for more than a decade and currently oversees the company’s core suite of apps. The heads of all of Facebook’s most important teams — Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Facebook itself — all report to him. He’d been floated as...
