I'm all for having a thriving, privatized space program. However, we still need the government to be involved and run their own end. We'll never get anywhere if we rely on just one side.
I agree. The media frenzy from attempting to tear it down would have been insane. DC, while upset over the unauthorized use, would never have pushed to have the memorial removed.
First, using the word "segregated" is a bit too strong in this case. Yes, it still means separation, but for many, it carries a different history. That being said, I don't agree with their policy on separation by gender. I think it's kind of pointless in an eSports format, and I'm glad someone is finally drawing attention to it. However, the vitriol and excessive anger is highly inappropriate, and it makes me disappointed in people like Wil Wheaton and others who have been up in arms about a policy that was put in place several YEARS ago. Where was the anger then? Where was the eSports community's rage then? Chess is still separated this way. Where's the anger? Yes, it's not equal. Yes, it should change. The gnashing of teeth and the pounding of fists needs to stop though. It's a little late to become that pissed off.
I agree that these types of contracts are total crap. It just ends up limiting the job market.
The real question is, did they spy on Djibouti?
All he said was that he'd bring change. We were suckers to believe that it would be beneficial change for ourselves.
I don't know. It takes more than one to quench my thirst.
Exactly. It's going to be abused by those in power to cover up issues they'd prefer to forget.
If the device had a long battery life, and I could get an unlimited data plan, I'd use it.
I'd be okay with this. It sucks that the government is unable to get their priorities straight, but we need to improve our infrastructure. We can't just sit around, waiting for the infrastructure fairies to swoop in and magically fix things.
That's where the money went. Yakisoba. A fuck-ton of it.
My company is pretty diverse, and we've been lucky to hire and retain quality people. However, we're small and relatively agile. Google and Yahoo are massive companies, and I'm afraid they will be too heavy-handed in their hiring, and just bring in "diversity" without verifying that they have the skills to do the job. It would be a disservice to those employees to inadvertently be set up for failure.
It stands for "Advanced Placement." It supposed to represent a more challenging level of work. However, from what I've seen of my sister-in-law's work, it's just a tremendous amount of busy-work wrapped around what I learned in "regular" classes. However, that might be a Texas thing. Our standards are lower, because we're just sittin' around waitin' fer the Rapture. At least, it feels that way.
Well, when US schools put emphasis and financial focus on sports, something has to be cut or ignored. I live in Texas, and have seen middle schools with larger stadiums than what I had at my high school in Michigan. Sadly, throwing more money at the problem won't solve it, because it's too ingrained in our culture.
Looks like global warming is impacting everything now.
