NTFS access permissions can be complex and tricky. To quickly assign NTFS permissions to a new folder, you can simply clone permissions from another folder that you know has the correct permissions applied.

md $homesample
# manually assign correct permissions to folder “sample”
$sddl = (Get-Acl $homesample).Sddl
md $homenewfolder
$sd = Get-Acl $homenewfolder
$sd.SetSecurityDescriptorSddlForm($sddl)
$sd.Sddl
Set-Acl $homenewfolder $sd

Unfortunately, setting ACLs this way always requires administrator privileges.

Google News Timeline is a web application that organizes information chronologically. It allows users to view news and other data sources on a zoomable, graphical timeline. You can navigate through time by dragging the timeline, setting the “granularity” to weeks, months, years, or decades, or just including a time period in your query (ie. “1977”).

Available data sources include recent and historical news, scanned newspapers and magazines, blog posts and Twitter status messages, sports scores and various types of media like music albums and movies.
