If you think atheists drive evangelical conservatives nuts, you ain't seen nothing yet.
What's surprising is that nobody here thinks this is an inherently sexist device.
Rumor has it they are coming out with the Shock Jock, to zap your nuts if you eat too much. Either that, it makes you use Windows Ate.
As I linked to near by, Civil Engineering seems to have a notably higher retention rate than programming.
Do you see my point? Programming is a skill that can be applied to many jobs.
I have to partly disagree. Sure, you can automate some of your own stuff with Excel scripts, etc., but there's a limit to how far that can take you. Before you dive into an org's app code repository, you need to spend a fair amount of time to know its conventions, specific languages, database layouts, etc. You can't just flick in and out of it. One has to be more or less "embedded" in the org's code to handle it effectively.
While I do recommend everybody take some programming, that's different than assuming bunches are going to make a career out of it, which seems to be what they are pushing women to do in TFA.
You have to remember, companies would rather have an H1B with marginal qualifications rather than a citizen with marginal qualifications. I've seen programmers struggle because they have poor people skills even though they take "people classes". Should they just change careers?
To amplify the thought, they could have pitched it for fitness and activity monitoring, or to identify what times of day are causing stress without being particularly noticed.
'The agency, from top to bottom, leadership to rank and file, feels that it is had no support from the White House even though it's been carrying out publicly approved intelligence missions,' says Joel Brenner, NSA inspector general from 2002 to 2006.
Which "public" was that? Spying on foreign leaders, collecting unlimited data on US citizens, tracking cell phones...I think I'm seeing the problem. They know they're doing wrong and still feel justified. Now they want the president to make them feel better.
It's like the phone companies wanting retroactive immunity for cooperating with spying. They want Congress to pass new laws making everything they've done legal.
Nevermind all the spying didn't stop the Boston Marathon bombers or the Sandy Hook shooter or any of the more common threats.
Maybe they deserve to feel bad.
The histories of the SR-71 program show an irrational, tribalist rejection of anything that didn't drop bombs or refuel bombers. It's more than a little disturbing to read about.
Maybe the CIA should have taken it over. It was their program in the first place (look up "Oxcart").
Fear thrives on ignorance. Imagine where we'd be without spy satellites.
Neither a satellite not a Global Hawk could collect air samples downwind from Yongbyon. The Global Hawk would get shot down.
Mercury, cadmium, and other chemical poisons are poisonous forever. They are also harder to detect.
We've found tolerable solutions to our other toxic waste problems. Spent fuel adds the proliferation problem but is otherwise the same.
As an American, I'd be fairly pissed off if the military didn't have a secret replacement for the SR-71 already in service (since before 1998).
a typical "green" person doesn't think in terms of "best alternative", but simply opposes whatever is being done since it will inevitably have some consequences.
And a typical small-minded bigot stereotypes everyone whose views aren't a clone of his own. Fuck you, small-minded bigot!
If you want to get 50 mpg, you need to find a 1980s era Honda CRX
Well, you could get a 1999-2006 Honda Insight, but then you'd have to "settle" for 70-100 MPG.
4 years in and burned out
well on my way to RSI.
That's from all the -1's you give me
