My sources suggest differently. Would you care to share yours? URLs please. After all, I want to be conscientious - high-five / thanks much.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Stop being logical - society doesn't care as long as they have a 4 second headline for CNN's morning recap. Science is old school.
Maybe the real problem is that we didn't have significant historical data available for us to originally start claiming an arctic-melt-crisis when we did oh so many years ago, but we did anyways, and it now that the data doesn't line up it's incredibly unpopular for us to point out the obvious. Seriously, Bob - are you done making us look bad, or what?
Science reporting fail. Seriously. When you're wrong, or shit doesn't line up like you predicted, you point it out with a big, red marker. "We found unexpected deviation right fucking here, and we don't yet know why." Science is a community, and we learn as a community through collective experience. The argumentists in this emotional case are the ass hats that are still infuriatingly mad that their original predictions aren't still becoming reality. (To those people, I say: "Reality is allowed to change, that's the point, and you're actually not as smart as you thought-and-suggested that you were. Welcome to life.")
Quite honestly, the scientist in these researchers should be sparking the question "why", not the questions "what can I say to save face" or "why don't these fools agree with me"...
Sounds about right. Do you have a newsletter? I would like to subscribe.
The reality is that immigrants, particularly illegals, are the ones performing jobs that others don't want. Hard to believe that not everyone grows up hoping to become the guy that scrubs the toilets and changes the paper towels at an office complex, or installing a new roof in 98 degree heat, but apparently these jobs are always looking for more people even in poor economic times.
That said, H1B was never designed to provide an alternate citizenship avenue. It was meant to allow the US to brain drain the rest of the world for our own benefit. Let the geniuses have a stay in our country for a while, get them to like the amenities, and then they will want to become residents. What it's turned into, however, is an alternate path to general citizenship for the unwashed masses. We already have an avenue for that. People should stop trying to game the system. Too many H1B's are lackluster and need to go home, yet continue to fuck up our economy with their poor job execution and language barriers. The latest is the recent college grad foreign exchange student, that tries to land some job where their mediocrity can get by just long enough to become the one guy in the company that knows how to do X, and then suddenly they become "critical" with "irreplaceable knowledge", as defined by lazy managers.
I specifically avoid hiring the average performing H1B's and foreign exchange students for this very reason. If I'm blown away by their abilities, then great, welcome to 'Merika. If not, then fuck them. Finding a local monkey is easy, and they generate far less paperwork for HR and don't drain on the economy.
Sounds like the taxing agencies that got stiffed on the previous sales should contact H2-11 to collect the back taxes owed. Problem solved. No story here. Stop sensationalizing nothingness; it's lame.
So I'm a time traveler, and I can go to any time and place that I choose. Why in this world would I go to Stephen Hawking's lame-ass party? History already recorded that it sucked. F-that, I'm gonna go crash one of Kanye's parties, get some sex from a drunk/drugged troglodyte-hooker, and score some low-priced kanye-coins before they catch on. Then I go home and be a billionaire, like I always wanted, and still get some sex from drunk/drugged troglodyte-hookers.
Honestly, Stephen, you're supposedly a great physicist, you should know better than to think that this sort of crap could ever work.
Lame. Try harder, or stop pretending to know what the fuck you're talking about.
Just plain wrong. Many states share reciprocity and honor CCP's issued by other states in the union. It's really not that much different from marriage licenses.
You just misunderstand air shows.
Well Fah Q both then
Nope! Go get a BlackBerry Storm. Touch screen device that is improved via mechanism to detect difference between touching a widget and pushing a widget. I used to have one of those other touch screen phones, and navigation was a complete pain in the ass. My new phone with the clicky screen is much better, and it still uses multi-touch for on-screen text selection purposes. Interface improved, patent improved, life goes on.
What we really need is some patent reform to keep up with modern engineering and manufacturing speeds. A 20 year patent is a little long these days since time to market from prototype is often well under 2 years. Maybe 5-8 year patents are in order. Long patent durations encourage competitors to embrace/extend. Short patents encourage the original patent holder to continue making improvements, rather than sitting on their duff.
