Hard to see indeed, but warnings can be overlooked/ignored. C.f. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H... from 2005. It flew for another hour after most everyone fell unconscious before it crashed into a mountain.
Those people live(d) different lifestyles "appropriate" for their wealth. Their residence, for example, was somewhat different than a suburb house that's essentially trivial to break into. Also, the Bitcoin business is a little richer on violent criminals than IT.
Wow, that's awesome! But doesn't cosmology involve a lot of mathematics, actually quite crazy stuff? How did she get through that?
Reference needed wrt. "many who suffer from dyscalculia excel at higher math". Not understanding basic numbers and algebra like fractions means that you simply never have much chance to progress to anything higher and interesting. Especially if your first few teachers are incompetent. And without the technical skill and gained routine, it's quite difficult to acquire intuition about how many pieces of higher math work.
Also, algebra is important for many other areas of science - biology, chemisty, any lab work; mixing solutions, configuring equipment, basic statistics,
(I have been intensely teaching someone with discalculia for some time. It's one of the disabilities that's difficult to appreciate without experience.)
Individual groups of people all trying to accomplish the same thing or things is absolutely essential to get stuff done. It motivates people to focus and work hard on the problem, because they know that others are working hard too and they will likely reach similar quality and are progressing fast. The competition between people means competition between solutions, which allows the soundest solutions to prevail (up to exceptions).
Competition can be friendly, especially if you are not too emotionally invested, and that's great especially for the people involved. Unfriendly competition is still great in the long run even though it introduces redundancies. The space race gave a big surge to the technological progress. Sport competitions give many athletes (or chess players or whoever) an incentive to improve. Computer Go programs evolved rapidly recently also thanks to competition. Recent Debian discussions about their next init system gave massive boost to openrc development.
Without competition, people are lazy and slack, since any effort is not worth it! Competition is awesome!
- A full, immediate pardon. (as a legal mechanism, not because he committed any crimes by being a whistleblower).
- Presidential Medal of Freedom
- A serious discussion and legislative effort about surveillance and how surveillance was allowed to reach clearly illegal levels
- A continous whistleblower award for the rest of his life, so that he doesn't have to work ever again. He put everything on the line for his beliefs, did more than the vast majority of people. The SEC and other groups already give out multimillion dollar whistleblowing awards for mere white collar crime, exposing the surveillance programs ought to rate higher.
It makes total sense for me, if you realize that your job is to be just a transport company, not a redistribution company.
Up to now (and of course you can still stay in that mode in the new version), you would just take the lumber from a forest and deliver to whatever sawmill. But in reality, you should deliver it to whatever sawmill the forest has contract with! I.e., sawmills will make contracts with forests and use you just as a transport company - then your job is to get the cargo from the correct forest to the correct sawmill.
(An important playability factor is that only reachable destinations are considered. So if you just created a dedicated line between two industries, you will not be asked to transport the cargo elsewhere.)
(N.B. I didn't try the cargodist mode yet so I'm not 100% sure if it works the way I'd suppose it works. I'd also expect it to allow you to enable it just for passenger+mail, as these are really special cases compared to other cargo.)
*The* big new feature of OpenTTD 1.4.0 is CargoDist, i.e. exactly that - passengers and cargo having specific destinations.
If only the summary wouldn't be just a jumbled tangle of text...
glibc is also backwards-compatible (within the 2.x series, i.e. since before year 2000). The problem are other system components that change and evolve - things like image processing libraries, sound libraries (as you point out yourself), etc. The ones that the software relied on before are simply disappearing.
However, I think that the situation is much more stabilized now than about five years ago and the ecosystem is fairly mature now. Two big question marks now are systemd and wayland, but the former shouldn't affect applications like games, and the latter should come with a good compatibility layer.
Valve itself is also making sure that the situation stabilizes by specifying what the games can and cannot rely on.
In the first place, it was unusual for an interlocutory appeal to be granted from the denial of the preliminary injunction motion. In federal court usually you can only appeal from a final judgment.
Similarly, apart from the fact that it's always rare for a certiorari petition to be granted, it's especially tough where the appeal is not from a final judgment, but just from a preliminary injunction denial which does not dispose of the whole case.
you're not wrong, but I just want to throw out there (because this gets ignored a lot) that it depends largely on the car in question.
For the *vast* majority of cars, you are 100% entirely correct.
However I have owned several cars (usually of the performance variety) that actually get their peak MPG around 75-80mph - I had a Corvette, rated for under 30mpg highway, that could cruise at 75mph and get 35mpg, as an example.
while at the same time giving their customers a bit less
FTFY. Remember the days when AT&T actually gave you unlimited service (back when "unlimited" actually meant "unlimited")? Remember how angry we were when they introduced the data cap?
