And rake off a little as it passes by.
A lot of our problems today are the result of people in power fundamentally misunderstanding what Big Data is good for.
We used to assume it was impractical for the Government to keep records of everything we do in the public sphere. Those things have gone from possible to practical to inevitable, mostly due to Moore's Law.
Just because you have everything recorded, doesn't mean it's useful, though. Technologists who should know better talk about searching these records to find the "needle in the haystack", selling the vision of complete records + powerful search tools = Total Awareness.
What they conveniently skip over is:
* All records have inaccuracies
* If the inaccuracy rate is higher than the occurrence rate of what you're searching for, the search is not useful
Consider medical screening tests. If you have a test with a false positive rate of 1 in 1000, it is useless to use such a test to search for a condition that happens to 1 in 1000000 - 999 times out of a thousand, the test will say you're sick when you're fine.
* The error rate of address OCR
* The rate of secrets being exchanged via US Mail
Anyone in the Government who can't produce an estimate of those two numbers shouldn't be allowed anywhere near those records - it would be like giving a child a loaded gun, or a politician a Twitter account.
The answer is always bitches.
You mean besides chasing cars?
Oh, I thought you were talking about dog archaeologists, not human archaeologists who study dogs.
At least dog archaeologists would know where all the bones were buried...
Most men and women enjoy mixing, as it happens.
Not when we're between 6 and 11 or so we don't! That's the age when girls have cooties!
WARNING!!! If you are a boy in this age range, you must stay away from these creatures during this time period or you could get cooties, too!
Damn, I didn't know people were so uneducated in serious medical matters like these. Stay safe, citizens!
Do you have any argument to show that the same thing would happen now?
Simply that human nature doesn't change that quickly and the separate facilities will soon be funded inequitably because of that. Show me any time in the past where that hasn't happened instead. I should think the paucity of examples where schools were funded equitably despite race and the huge number of examples where people still act like asshats because of it would convince you.
You think you're funny? Laugh it up. An age? Simple subtraction, right? Not quite...
Start with kids under an arbitrary cutoff limit (often customizable by HC org, department, and/or provider whose ages need to be given in months. Then you get bitching from neonatologists who want the age of kids under some other arbitrary limits to be displayed in days. This is for a relatively simple concept.
Now, multiply the whole thing by about 25,000 concepts (many more complex than "age"), riddle the whole thing with massive amounts of subjective judgement, toss in prima dona providers, constantly changing governmental regulations, constantly changing clinical standards, constantly changing knowledge and technology, and you can start to see how stupid your comment about age starts to look. It's a difficult domain to program for - try it sometime and see.
If you're crazy enough to think that the email thing was anything at all, you're deluded enough to be a Republican and so I don't think HRC wants your vote. Go ahead and vote for your crazy.
Well, that's really sort of the definition of fixed here, isn't it? You do nothing with the DDoS traffic while responding as normal to the regular traffic.
At least when the science doesn't unambiguously support the position they've taken to make their constituents happy.
Actually, I don't give a rat's ass about games, just the antisocial tendencies they seem to encourage among some of their devotees - it's not the game, it's the asshattery. And as long as the asshats of gaming band together and are a problem for the rest of the web, I'm sure your fellow non-asshat gamers will eventually isolate you as well. Have a good time playing with each other, you little homoerotic man boys.
No - he's actually wanting Cook to not speak out. Period.
We see here how Republicans love free speech. maybe they should run their party in Saudi Arabia - after all to not do so elsewhere, where things are even worse for Liberty and Freedom would be hypocritical.
Maybe North Korea, too.
Yet in the US social progress needs to come IMMEDIATELY, as soon as someone stamps their precious little foot?
If it's actually PROGRESS, why wait? Because another minority (hardcore religious Christians) stamps their feet? Amazing how that works...
As human beings, we have limited agency. Tim Cook's words hold great sway here in the US. Much less in a place like Saudi Arabia.
Why do you want him to waste his political capital in fruitless words about the House of Saud and their backwards religion when he can affect change here and now? Why are Republicans all about doing ineffective things? I guess Sean had an expert in that when he brought in Fiorina as a guest!
