Wondering how much more these political hacks have slipped into the message and the recordings.
He was one of the geeks who made it to the top. Was instrumental in establishing India's space research agency in the early 60s. He was a FORTRAN guy. He interviewed me in the campus interview and asked me the difference between the COMMON statement and the EQUIVALENCE statement. I am sure I answered it wrong, but he hired me anyway.
He headed five missile programs for India and then became the Chief Coordinator of the nuclear weapons program. He served as the scientific adviser to the Defense Minister and then to the Prime Minister. Normal trajectory for a career scientist bureaucrat up to this point.
Then he was tapped to be the Presidential candidate for the Hindu Nationalistic Party BJP. Kalam was an apolitical vegetarian Muslim and could not be countered by the usual political strategies by the other parties. He won the election handsomely and went on to win the hearts of the people of India. Unlike any previous President, he inspired the people with visionary speeches.
He lived a very simple life. India was stunned to see him walk out of the Presidential mansion with just a couple of suitcases at the end of his term. (Very rarely Indian politicians leave offices with so few possessions. There were quite a few scandals of politicians stripping their official residences of air conditioners and such when they leave office.)
After leaving office he collected a large number of honorary degrees and awards, wrote books, worked on low cost tablets and heart stents. Sadly he died of a heart attack.

The current trend is 500 million new solar panels without any special action by any legislator/executive. Simple market forces and trend lines. Residential solar is becoming competitive with subsidies and net metering. Utility scale solar is on track to become competitive with natural gas in a few years. It is already competitive with coal for fresh installations. No new coal plant has come on line this year and last. The pipeline is dry too. Number of coal plants have fallen from 633 to 518 in the last decade. Coal has lost 20 GW of capacity in that time, and is on track to lose another 40 GW. Natural gas providing base load and solar meeting the peak load is going to become the norm in the next 10 years. No new breakthrough in energy storage, no battery wall made by Elon Musk, no widespread investment by home owners needed. Simple existing technologies, free market forces, interest rates and world flush with 2 trillion in capital not knowing where to invest for good returns.
So half billion new solar panels might happen no matter who wins, Hilary or Jeb! or Walker or Trump or Bernie. We might even look back and see Hilary's half a billion solar panels the same way we look at Romney's 2$ gasoline.
... But isn't that the whole point of LinkedIn? To give recruiters your contact info so they can spam you?
/quote> The point of LinkedIn is to give them your contact info so that Linked can spam all your friends, family, acquaintances, their dogs and cats. If random third party affiliates, channel partners and other assorted anonymous entities that are always pitching "new and exciting" (exciting to them) products muscle in on to their game, Linked in would be upset. No?
Having said that, most people would like their jokes to be told again, if possible with attribution. So unless the creator has gone through the process of copyrighting the joke and enforcing it, it seems to be an overkill to enforce it suo motu.
Then Germany and UK will claim Greece and Spain are free loading on the great programming created by their virtuous tax payers and demand that they too pay the wireless receiver license fees. Greek population will be limited to half an hour of TV per day and people will line up with their thumb drives in front of TV stations to download their daily quota of programs. Old pensioners without the stamina to stand at all those lines will break down and bawl like babies in front of the world TV cameras. CEOs of apparel hawking companies in USA will ship emergency supplies of programs....
Wonder why they insist on creating a fiscal/mercantile union without creating a political union. They envy the USA with its large market, but they don't seem to take the lessons of urban population putting up with the antics of Ted Cruz or the rural folks putting up with SCOTUS ruling on same sex marriages.
Yeah, we have a large unbroken market. And we paid for it in blood at places like Chancellorsville, the sunken road, the stone bridge, the corn field, multiple times at Manassas, Shiloh, Antietam, Vicksburg, Gettysburg...
Title seems to be simple click bait meant to attract creationists and their opponents.
"They often penalized surgeons, like the senior surgeon at my hospital, who were aggressive about treating very sick patients and thus incurred higher mortality rates," says Jauhar.
It is true, some surgeons who are willing to treat very difficult cases would be adversely graded. But shouldn't there be some mechanism to apply brakes to the aggressive treatment? Some patients, and some of the relatives will be seeking treatment even when the situation is utterly hopeless. There are incentives for the doctors and the hospitals to pursue aggressive treatment. So, under these circs, is it really bad these grades are making them reevaluate the cases and be more realistic about the prognosis?
The doctors are chumps to operate under these rules rigged by the lawyers.
However, OpenSSH servers with keyboard-interactive authentication enabled, which is the default setting on many systems, including FreeBSD ones, can be tricked to allow many authentication retries over a single connection, according to the researcher. “With this vulnerability an attacker is able to request as many password prompts limited by the ‘login grace time’ setting, that is set to two minutes by default,” Kincope said.
It is bad, but not so bad. At least the connection resets after 2 minutes by default.
