Every time I hear about a terrifyingly invasive means of "improving performance" its targeted at developers. Is it just selection bias, or does the world actually hate us?

You really think developers are singled out here? There is an entire industry built upon business process improvement and operational management. I guess there probably are more invasive measures against professions like developers, but that is only because it has been hard to completely replace the profession with machines.

When you start having your bathroom breaks timed by your manager like some retail workers then you have it rough.

+ - The Cindy Shearin Group: Købe en lejlighed i Paris->

Submitted by jeff clayborn
jeff clayborn (3762511) writes "Denne store lejlighed i den 8th Arrondissement er til salg via øst & vest mæglere til 2,850,000 euro. Afbilledet her er den enorme grand stue.

Ordet Paris fremmaner romantiske tanker om byen og dens historie, kunst og arkitektur. Åh, og lad os ikke glemme alt om delectable franske kultur og ren romantik i det hele. Hvem ville ikke ønsker at eje en lejlighed i Paris? For at få lowdown, spurgte vi nogle folk der kender, nemlig Jennifer Sigler, en transplanteret mægler fra Louisiana, og hendes franske modpart, Etienne de Damas, longtime real estate specialist i Paris, hvor de begge arbejder.

Hvordan udfordrende er det at købe en lejlighed i Paris?
Du har sikkert hørt hvor meget lejlighed priser i Paris er steget. Ekstraordinære vækst i de sidste syv år har set priser fordobling. Folk betaler nu fra 8.000 til 20.000 euro per kvadratmeter (1 meter er 10,76 fødder), og endnu mere for de bedste lejligheder i distrikterne omkring floden. Ikke at nævne, er der en mangel på egenskaber på markedet. Uden en flere notering service, at finde din drøm er lejlighed absolut en udfordring.

Så hvad er en pige at gøre?
Heldigvis, ejendom finderne er dukket op i Paris, og nogle virksomheder vil arbejde sammen med andre agenser, der er ikke normen. Du skal være fokuseret, målrettet og klar, når du begynder din søgning. Paris drøm lejlighed er stadig en mulighed, selvom du bare måtte have til at renovere det en smule!

Arbejde med agenter...
Uden en flere notering service i Paris, vil du gå fra en fast ejendom kontor til et andet i en endeløs cirkel, hvis du ikke er parat. Få udarbejdet af laver lektier på egen hånd. Der er mange hjemmesider, hvor du kan finde lejligheder opført af ejere, omgåelse disse agenter, der ikke er interesseret i at sælge dig noget andet end deres egne lister. Alt det kræver er et telefonopkald til ejer til at oprette en visning, og voilà — du er på vej til at finde din drøm plads!

Hvad skal jeg forvente at betale for en et — eller to-værelses?
Hvert distrikt i Paris kaldes en arrondissement, og hver ejendom har forskellige priser baseret på dens placering, typen af bygning og tilstand. De mest populære områder på venstre bred er naturligvis de sværeste steder at finde en lejlighed. For et soveværelse, en-badeværelse omkring 800 kvadratmeter i god stand, kan prisen variere fra 785,000 til 900.000 euro. For en to-værelses, one-badeværelse omkring 950 kvadratmeter i den populære bydel Le Marais, kunne man betale næsten 1 million euro. Ganske vist er der sjældent fund at renovere, der kan være mindre, men de smart købere eyeing konstant disse skatte for at ordne og leje ud for indkomst.

Hvor hurtigt er ejendomshandler afsluttet i Paris?
Når lejligheden er blevet fundet, og har taget en beslutning om at købe er papirerne underskrevet. Den endelige afslutning tager omkring tre måneder, hvilket giver dig rigelig tid til at låse i dollar-euro-kursen.

Priserne er steget en masse for nylig, er rigtigt? Er nu et godt tidspunkt at købe eller er det et sælgers marked?
Sikkert er sælgere glad lige nu. Men markedet giver dagens køberen mulighed for at købe en drøm lejlighed og ride på en bølge af hvad synes at være et voksende marked.

Hvad er en SCI? Hvornår og hvorfor ville det være hensigtsmæssigt at åbne en?
En notaire skaber en SCI, Société Civile Immobilière, som løseligt kan oversættes som et anpartsselskab til ejendom formål. Denne type af virksomhed kan dannes, når du ønsker at købe en lejlighed med dine venner eller familie. SCI ejer ejendommen med det formål at leje det ud når du ikke bruger den. Der er skattefordele til denne type af køb, så gode råd er nødvendig fra en fransk advokat eller notaire.

Hvad er en notaire?
Notaire (ikke at forveksle med en notar i USA) er en professionel, der er begået under segl fra den franske Republik. Enhver transaktion, fast ejendom skal være udført af en notaire. Han eller hun vil udarbejde dokumenter, realkreditlån og andre tilknyttede papirer til lukning af salget på din lejlighed.

Hvor svært er det at renovere en lejlighed i Paris?
Det er tilrådeligt, ligesom alle andre renoveringsprojekt, at være på stedet under hele processen. Den bedste måde at finde pålidelige arbejdstagere er ved at spørge venner eller kolleger, der kan tilbyde referencer og detaljer på håndværk. Flere ejendomsmæglere kan anbefale en certificeret, pålidelige arbejde team at renovere en ejendom. Sørg for at ansætte en person, der er enten fransk eller taler fransk flydende og der er forsikret og certificeret.

Submitted by Alexander Sidko
Alexander Sidko (3736467) writes "Need to merge / compare two Word documents in .NET (C#, VB.NET)? GroupDocs.Comparison is the solution you might be looking for. It is a lightweight .NET library for generating diffs between two versions of a document. The library merges documents, compares their contents and styles, provides you with a complete list of changes found and also generates a diff view through a convenient web UI.
The UI can be easily integrated in any ASP.NET project, including MVC and WebForms. Merged documents are displayed through the UI with the diff view approach similar to Microsoft Word's change tracking feature. End users can view compared documents from any modern browser without having to install any plugins or 3rd party software.
If your application does not produce a UI, you can simply use the ComparisonService to process documents in the console or a desktop app."

Can you not see that this research is directly applicable? Arguably cancer can be considered a copy error (wouldn't it be nice if our DNA had CRC?) If you think about it like that it seems that you could replace the error bits in just this fashion, and voilla.. Cancers ( all of them, as well as a shitload of other genetic issues ) are a memory.. Now where the hell do we put all the people?

ANYONE feels entitled to vent when you're on the Internet- you're relatively anonymous and there just aren't any real consequences for being a total douchebag.

In theory, you can always learn more by continuing to study something. In practice, though, modern medicine has a pretty complete knowledge of smallpox. Humans have been studying the disease since before anyone even knew what a virus was. There's evidence that the Chinese were inoculating people for smallpox over a thousand years ago. And the first practical, widespread form of that vaccine dates back to the late 1700s. This was literally the very first virus ever treated with a vaccine. It's well-trodden ground, research-wise.

The problem is, this virus is highly contagious and relatively dangerous compared with other viruses. For variola major, the case fatality rate is typically 30–60%, which puts it among the worst communicable diseases out there, approaching the fatality rate of ebola, and far more contagious. With nearly a two-week average incubation period (and up to 17 days in the worst case), one minor screw-up could easily cause a very serious pandemic before enough vaccines could be produced and distributed.

So basically, you have to weigh the odds of an accidental release (which, with recent revelations about this stuff getting lost for decades, then turning up by accident, seems not so improbable) against the relatively small chance of learning anything new from it that can't also be learned from cowpox or other similar viruses. On the risk-reward curve, this seems to be so far towards the "pure risk" end that any reward would border on undeniable proof of divine intervention, which means the speculated rewards would have to be pretty darn amazing for it to be worth the risk.
