For The Win

Earlier this year, 26-year-old Andrzej Fonfara had the biggest opportunity of his career, facing off against Adonis Stevenson for the WBC world light heavyweight title. Unfortunately for Fonfara, Stevenson was too much for him, and his big shot ended in a unanimous decision defeat.

Now, Fonfara must restart his climb back to the top of the sport, and the journey begins Saturday in his adopted home city of Chicago against French fighter Doudou Ngumbu (telecast begins at 8 p.m. ET on Showtime). Despite Fonfara’s loss his last time out, Ngumbu will have his hands full. This will be a partisan crowd, and that’s not all Fonfara has going for him.

He has a 76-inch reach:

At 6’2 1/2″, Fonfara’s tall, but his wingspan outpaces even that measurement.

And he knows how to use it to his advantage.

American Hustle Microwave Scene Sparks Lawsuit

TIME

Jennifer Lawrence’s microwave was among her most memorable costars in last year’s American Hustle. And now the appliance, and its place in the script, has gotten the filmmakers into some legal trouble.

In a brief scene, Lawrence’s character tells her husband (Christian Bale) that microwaves make food less nutritious, saying she “read it in an article. Look, by Paul Brodeur.” Brodeur has written about the hazards of microwaves but never, he claims in a new lawsuit against Columbia Pictures and the other companies behind Hustle, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that they leach the nutrition out of food.

This is not the scandal one might have expected to emerge from American Hustle, a film about the FBI’s bribing politicians during the ABSCAM sting operation that played it fast and loose with the facts, and indicated as much in its opening disclaimer. But while THR

New Docker release helps users avoid the Poodle bug

Gigaom

If you already loaded up Docker 1.3, which came out a few weeks ago, Docker wants you to update to Docker 1.3.1 so as to avoid the Poodle bug, the company detailed in a security advisory on Thursday.

The Poodle bug takes advantage of a security flaw that surfaces when a secure network connection between a browser and a website takes place; in this case, browsers try to reestablish connections with websites through an old-and- flawed version of the security protocol SSL 3.0, making them open to an attack. A host of companies like [company]Google[/company], [company]Mozilla[/company] and [company]Twitter[/company] have said they will no longer support this protocol.

The same sort of vulnerability can occur within the Docker engine and docker-py, an API client that lets Python users communicate with Docker. Essentially, if for some reason the Docker engine and the API client fail to connect with a

What You Need to Know About the Unrest in Burkina Faso

TIME

The West African nation of Burkina Faso grabbed rare international headlines this week as thousands of people amassed in its capital, Ouagadougou, to protest plans to keep their longtime leader in office. After days of unrest that included setting Parliament ablaze, overrunning state TV broadcasters and deadly clashes with security forces, President Blaise Compaoré stepped down Oct. 31 after 27 years in power. Army Chief Gen. Honoré Nabéré Traoré quickly announced he would fill the void and said elections would take place within a year.

What are the basics about Burkina Faso?

Burkina Faso, which is densely populated with more than 17 million people and ranked by the United Nations as one of the world’s least-developed countries, shares borders with six countries: Mali, Niger, Benin, Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire.

The country gained independence from France in 1960 and would suffer from five military coups in the first few decades…

AT&T, Verizon boosts caps on their cheaper shared data plans

Gigaom

A month ago, Verizon and AT&T doubled the data available on higher-tier shared plans as all of the major carriers tried to entice new customers with bigger buckets of bandwidth. Now both operators are scaling down those promotional offers to their low-tier (in the case of AT&T) and mid-tier (in the case of Verizon) mobile bandwidth bundles.

Both [company]AT&T[/company] and [company]Verizon[/company]’s original double-data promotions targeted accounts that bought data in bulk allotments of 15GBs or more a month to split between many family members or multiple devices. AT&T’s new promotion, however, targets single-line customers or households with two or three devices: $40 a month now gets 3 GBs instead of 2 GBs, and its $70 plan comes with 6 GBs instead of 4 GBs. AT&T is also extending its double-data offer on higher tier plans until Nov. 15.

Verizon is keeping pricing of its lower-tier plans the same, but customers…
