A sliding cover to a camera does not adhere to KISS from a user's perspective. It's actually an annoying additional step to using the camera

I was going to say the same thing - that it makes the camera annoying to use and would probably confuse a lot of people if you ship it closed (and if you don't ship it closed, why even bother?)

There is one way you could make it covered and still not confuse users - have the sliding door activated by the computer when the camera is active. Then you could see when the camera was active, and the door could hard-wire an LED activation...

It would add cost and complexity though, and it does sound like a system that would be prone to failure rendering the camera useless. So there's still that issue.

I will disagree with you a little. First, how do you figure that inflation transfers value to the government? By what mechanism? I am going to guess you mean that they can turn on the printing press and mint free money, but most OECD countries (rich countries like the US) systems are set up to prevent that.

You are correct that the poor have fewer options and thus inflation hits them more directly. But if that is so, then the sophisticated (who tend to be rich) can structure their investments to blunt their impact. Which is why most people say “unexpected increase in inflation”.

But you have to remember there is a difference between the poor (low income, few assets), the middle class (moderate income, relatively high debt), the rich (high income, but also relatively high debt) and the wealthy (less income then you think, but owns more debt then you might think). Where am I going with this? Take a look 100 years ago. Farmers were begging for higher inflation because deflation was transferring wealth from those with high debts to the wealthy. See William Jennings Bryan's
Cross of Gold speech

No, the way governments transfer money from the rich and poor is though financial repression. i.e. when inflation is greater the nominal interest rates. Yes, this can happen when inflation increases, but most of the action by governments over the past 60 years have been to drop the nominal interest rates. That is what is happening in the US today (via the Fed's easy money policy) or China (where the government has placed caps on the interest rate). Or dozens of other cases.

You'd think people would figure out not to attach everything to the internet. Why the card readers needed to be connected to anything but an internal network (with no internet connection to that) is a bad security model to begin with.

Will they ever learn?

Guess maybe i'm not thinking. They do need to verify that cards are correct, so they do need some internet access, though they could do it over the phone.

Well, i guess they will still need to rethink the security of this.

Seems to me they readers only need to communicate with a computer in the store, then that computer could do the verifying. Might be a little slower, but would probably be a lot more secure.

by quantaman (#45733255) Attached to: Genome of Neandertals Reveals Inbreeding

Taboos against inbreeding are hardly the result of intolerance since inbreeding drastically increases the probability of recessive genes becoming expressed. Since recessive genes are rarely expressed they're not exposed to the same selection pressure and tend to be less fit as a result.

So your claim is that by engaging in inbreeding, we are putting evolutionary pressure on the recessive genes, thus removing them from the gene pool, and that this is beneficial?

Beneficial for the species possibly, but not for the poor individuals who are tasked with the job of carrying those genes out of the pool.

(though it might be bad of the species as you'll lose some diversity too, recessive genes still get selection without inbreeding)

You are aware that, if you have a single gene for sickle cell anemia, rather than coming down with the disease, you're effectively immune to Malaria, since the blood cells will sickle in the presence of Malaria, but not otherwise, right?

Recessive genes are less fit on average, that doesn't mean in some instances they can't be as or even more fit than their non-recessive counterparts.

The sickle cell gene example, aside from being fascinating, actually proves my point. It would not have survived as a dominant gene in that form since the side effects of full expression are too harmful, it either would have been removed from the genepool, mutated to only go sickle with Malaria, or another gene would have popped up that made it only go sickle with Malaria. It's the fact that it's recessive that's allowed it to retain such poor fitness.
