Recently I learned that black people from Africa have a very different end result when they move to America compared to black people raised here. Even if they were disadvantaged in all the same ways before coming here, they do better. They end up in jail less, they get a better education, and make more of their life once moving to the "land of opportunity".
To me it sounds like they grow up in a certain mindset. Nobody else can fix that for them, they have to change their mindset to get out of the disadvantaged beginnings they might start out with. If getting educated is looked at as a bad thing in your neighborhood, then you had better be strong enough to be an "Uncle Tom" or whatever your friends are going to call you. Otherwise you will just end up poor and in prison, if not dead from gang violence, just like all your friends.
Every study that comes out continues to prove how safe and effective vaccines are. They prove beyond any legitimate doubt that vaccines are so effective that the very small segment of the population that cannot tolerate them are effectively shielded by the herd immunity. There are absolutely no legitimate studies that question the safety and effectiveness of vaccines.
On the other hand, there is an epidemic of willful ignorance when it comes to vaccinations. A large segment of the population flat out refuses to believe that they've been duped by someone trying to sell something. They refuse to admit that the science is overwhelming and undeniable. They flat out refuse to acknowledge facts staring them in the face. But, sadly, that's a disease that is impossible to overcome.
If you pro-vaccine people keep lying to us all the time I will stop listening to you. This is why I am not getting every vaccine recommended, not because I think there is a autism link. Merck, the company that makes the Mumps vaccine has been caught lying about the effectiveness of its' vaccine so it won't loose its' monopoly making it. They will tell you it is 95% effective, but it is well less that that, perhaps as low as 33%. Of course they tell everybody in the media that the outbreaks were due to vaccinated people, when in reality as many as 77% of the infected in the outbreak were vaccinated.
We also have countries like China where they mandate vaccination. They still have outbreaks of measles there even though 99% of the people are vaccinated. So again, this thing about herd immunity turns out to be a lie. And cigaretts don't cause cancer!
it's really an "I can't do hi-res, so I'll leave that to your imagination" style.
If you read the article you would see examples of the hi-res that does not look good. That horrible scene with the chipmunk flying through the air with purple mountains in the background. There is too much distraction with all the little dots all over the place. Just because you have high resolution does not mean it makes a good picture.
I liked it a lot. I don't use a screen protector sheet as that increases the friction. I would guess that is why you felt it was uncomfortable, but I could be wrong. I like the smooth glass as your finger can slide much easier that way, and dirt and crap does not accumulate around the edges of those films. The thing that made me give up on the 8-pen was having to switch to a number pad for numeric entry. When you are writing an address or a sentence with mixed numbers and letters it gets old very quickly.
Lately I am using MessagEase. It is a main grid of 9 boxes that you either tap or slide. A tap gives you the most common letters and a slide toward the center will give you an alternate letter. There are a couple of letters that slide in other directions and then punctuation is also put on there as other direction slides. You have the option of switching to a numeric keypad, or if you have the room, having both up side by side. I like the option for circular gestures though. If you start on a letter, but rather than tap or slide you draw a circle, you will get a number that way. So no switching between keyboards and learning the placement of the letters takes no more than 15 minutes or so to be quicker than using a QWERTY keyboard.
Thrust was observed on both test articles, even though one of the test articles was designed with the expectation that it would not produce thrust. Specifically, one test article contained internal physical modifications that were designed to produce thrust, while the other did not (with the latter being referred to as the "null" test article)."
Listen up kids, this means that they tested the "true em-drive" and a dummy and _both_ gave them thrust. The dummy is specifically designed so that it _cannot_ do this! This means the "thrust" comes from some other effect, not the "em-drive".
I would say that they don't yet understand how the thrust is generated and when they tried to make changes to one device to get it to stop working they did it wrong. I am assuming that the thrust stops when you turn off the power. Obviously that is an easy "null" device, one that does not generate the microwaves. So they are generating microwaves in them both and hoped to stop the trust by changing the resonating cavity in some way and they failed to stop the trust. If the thrust stops when you turn it off then there is something measured and it will need more study to figure out what exactly causes it and how to properly make a "null" device that bounces the microwaves without creating thrust.
Just because the military and police used to use civilian weaponry does not mean there is a reason to take it away now. In fact, now that the police feel they need to get stronger and better weapons than the civilians can get we have turning into an evil oppressive force that kills any time it wishes and declares it a justified kill.
When the police give up their weapons, then they can talk about others giving up theirs. I still would not give mine up, but it is a non-starter when you are going to have an organized criminal gang of hired guns running around in the streets.
