2016 São Toméan presidential election

Presidential elections were held in São Tomé and Príncipe on 17 July 2016. Initial results suggested Evaristo Carvalho of Independent Democratic Action had been elected in the first round of voting, defeating incumbent President Manuel Pinto da Costa. However, Pinto da Costa boycotted the second round after claiming the first round had been fraudulent, meaning Carvalho was elected unopposed; the President of São Tomé and Príncipe is elected using the two-round system. If no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, a run-off between the top two candidates. There were five candidates, including incumbent President Manuel Pinto da Costa, two former prime ministers, Evaristo Carvalho from Independent Democratic Action and Maria das Neves from the MLSTP/PSD, as well as two independents. Carvalho stood as the candidate of the party of Prime Minister Patrice Trovoada. Carvalho was declared the winner in the first round with more than 50% of the vote, but Carvalho's score was subsequently adjusted downward to 49.88%, necessitating a second round against President Pinto da Costa.

However, Pinto da Costa refused to participate in the second round, alleging fraud and calling for a boycott

Sticky bit

In computing, the sticky bit is a user ownership access right flag that can be assigned to files and directories on Unix-like systems. When a directory's sticky bit is set, the filesystem treats the files in such directories in a special way so only the file's owner, the directory's owner, or root user can rename or delete the file. Without the sticky bit set, any user with write and execute permissions for the directory can rename or delete contained files, regardless of the file's owner; this is set on the /tmp directory to prevent ordinary users from deleting or moving other users' files. The modern function of the sticky bit was introduced in 4.3BSD in 1986, is found in most modern Unix-like systems. The sticky bit was introduced in the Fifth Edition of Unix for use with pure executable files; when set, it instructed the operating system to retain the text segment of the program in swap space after the process exited. This speeds up subsequent executions by allowing the kernel to make a single operation of moving the program from swap to real memory.

Thus, frequently-used programs like editors would load noticeably faster. One notable problem with "stickied" programs was replacing the executable; this behavior is only operative in HP-UX and UnixWare. Solaris appears to have abandoned this in 2005; the 4.4-Lite release of BSD retained the old sticky bit behavior, but it has been subsequently dropped from OpenBSD and FreeBSD. No version of Linux has supported this traditional behavior; the most common use of the sticky bit is on directories residing within filesystems for Unix-like operating systems. When a directory's sticky bit is set, the filesystem treats the files in such directories in a special way so only the file's owner, the directory's owner, or root can rename or delete the file. Without the sticky bit set, any user with write and execute permissions for the directory can rename or delete contained files, regardless of the file's owner; this is set on the /tmp directory to prevent ordinary users from deleting or moving other users' files.

This feature was introduced in 4.3BSD in 1986, today it is found in most modern Unix-like systems. In addition, Solaris defines special behavior when the sticky bit is set on non-executable files: those files, when accessed, will not be cached by the kernel; this is set on swap files to prevent access on the file from flushing more important data from the system cache. It is used for benchmarking tests; the sticky bit is set by the automounter to indicate that a file has not been mounted yet. This allows programs like ls to ignore unmounted remote files; the sticky bit can be set using the chmod command and can be set using its octal mode 1000 or by its symbol t. For example, to add the bit on the directory /usr/local/tmp, one would type chmod +t /usr/local/tmp. Or, to make sure that directory has standard tmp permissions, one could type chmod 1777 /usr/local/tmp. To clear it, use chmod -t /usr/local/tmp or chmod 0777 /usr/local/tmp. In Unix symbolic file system permission notation, the sticky bit is represented by the letter t in the final character-place, replacing what would otherwise be x.

For instance, on Solaris 8, the /tmp directory, which by default has the sticky-bit set, shows up as: If the sticky-bit is set on a file or directory without the execution bit set for the others category, it is indicated with a capital T: chmod setuid Unix File and Directory Permissions, 2010, by Wayne Pollock, archived from the original on February 3, 2012

The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien

The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien is an American late-night talk show that featured Conan O'Brien as host from June 1, 2009, to January 22, 2010, as part of NBC's long-running Tonight Show franchise. O'Brien hosted NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, which followed The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for 16 years, until his brief succession over Leno. Many members of the Late Night cast and crew made the transition to The Tonight Show; the Max Weinberg 7, the house band from O'Brien's Late Night, served as the house band under the new name, Max Weinberg and The Tonight Show Band. Andy Richter returned to the show as announcer, began resuming his role as sidekick, shortly before the show's conclusion; the opening and closing theme song from Late Night was carried over to Tonight, in a altered form. In January 2010, after the show had been on the air for seven months, it was announced that NBC was intending to move Jay Leno from primetime back to his original timeslot at 11:35 pm, with O'Brien's show starting shortly after midnight.

In response to the announcement, O'Brien released a press statement saying that he would not continue as host of The Tonight Show if it was moved to any time after midnight to accommodate The Jay Leno Show. He feared it would ruin the long and rich tradition of The Tonight Show, on after the late local newscasts from the beginning. After two weeks of negotiations, NBC announced that they had paid $45 million to buy out O'Brien's contract, ending both his tenure as host as well as his relationship with NBC after 22 years. Conan O'Brien's final Tonight Show was broadcast on January 22, 2010, with Jay Leno resuming his role as host on March 1, 2010 following the conclusion of the 2010 Winter Olympics, it received four Primetime Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series, the first time The Tonight Show received a nomination for this particular award after 2003. At only 146 episodes over the course of seven months and three weeks, it is the shortest-running iteration in the sixty-year history of The Tonight Show.

The show followed the established six-piece format used previous hosts Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, as well as elements established by O'Brien during his tenure on Late Night. The first segment included a monologue by O'Brien, sometimes accompanied by altered news clips, or several brief comedy sketches. Most episodes included a second segment after the monologue, with a full comedy sketch. An interview with either one or two guests followed, as well as a musical or comedy performance. After the last performance segment, O'Brien walked on camera to thank the performers, bid farewell to the audience, recommend watching Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. For the first six shows, the credits ran in the right half of a split screen, a former NBC standard that Late Night continued to use long after the network abandoned it. After episode seven, NBC's current practice of running credits at the bottom third of the screen was employed; the Conaco and Universal Media Studios production tags were shown in full-screen.

New sketches included O'Brien posing for the paparazzi, known as "Conan's Tabloid Moment", "Twitter Tracker", where an excited announcer reads mundane "tweets" by celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Miley Cyrus, Dennis Haysbert. Sketches from Late Night reintroduced include "In the Year 2000" as "In the Year 3000", with Richter once again assisting Conan on the sketch, "Celebrity Surveys". Popular Late Night character Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog appeared on Tonight for the first time on June 19, 2009, serving as correspondent for the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee. Another favorite character from Conan's old show, the Masturbating Bear, was reintroduced on January 20, 2010, on Conan's third-to-last show. O'Brien retired the Masturbating Bear at the end of his Late Night run due to concerns about its inappropriateness in the 11:30 time slot. Late Night character The Interrupter made his first appearance on The Tonight Show on September 3, 2009; as is the format on other late night talk shows, the last segment featured a performance by either a musical guest or a stand-up comedian, preceding the closing credits to the show.

An avid guitar player, O'Brien has been given many guitars as gifts from several musical guests and on occasion, featured himself on acoustic guitar in a comedy sketch. He played electric guitar during the final episode's cover performance of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird"; the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien originated from Stage 1 at Universal Studios in Universal City, California, a stage, built and constructed for O'Brien's version of The Tonight Show. The studio was used for Jack Benny's television show; this was the first time since before May 1972, when Johnny Carson served as host, that the show was not shot in Burbank, California. As with a majority of television shows produced and broadcast by NBC Universal, the show was shot in 16:9 aspect ratio, with a 4:3 center-cut, broadcast in 1080i high definition. O'Brien's entire tenure on the show was the first version of The Tonight Show to be recorded and broadcast in high definition. Unlike Leno's Tonight Show, the studio audience was several feet removed from the stage, in a similar fashion to Carson's original set.

Leno retained Carson's original configuration until he changed studios in 1995. The stage layout was opposite of the structure used on Late Night. Where Studio 6A was arranged with the house band on the far left, followed by the performance area and the interview set, the house band was moved to the right of the performance stage on Tonight, with the interview set now on the far left. From 2012 until 2
