Knowing the data structures gives you the ground work for understanding what the code is doing. The data structures are a more direct description of the design decisions.
Brains are as much physical organs as livers or ovaries.
Imagine the tantrum North Korea will throw when one of these drifts through its airspace and gives the population unfiltered Internet access.
They're not the only place that would have an explosion over uncontrolled Internet.
If your data is on an Internet-connected computer you have already accepted some amount of risk.
The Constitution, for excellent reasons, limits treason charges to making war against the US or joining its enemies.
Security supposedly means protecting our freedom. If so, they are one and the same, and there can't even theoretically be a tradeoff.
Not to mention that the entire point of the leak was that the government is deliberately spying on non-terrorists.
Low capital costs, and at current prices low fuel costs.
Isn't there a long delay between exposure and visible cancer? Does the fact that the cases are visible now imply that they must have started before the accident?
There's almost no oil consumption for electricity generation, and until we get a large fleet of electric cars nuclear electricity will displace very little oil burning.
What nuclear power does is displace coal, thus saving thousands of lives every year.
Yes, this is the sort of thing that should grab our attention and cause us to check for abuse of power.
In this case, one of the first steps in investigating is to check who appointed the IRS commissioner.
OK, without studying the science, you can use other heuristics to guess at the credibility of the people involved.
On one hand, you have people saying "We didn't know this for sure until late last century, here are our methodologies, here are several different lines of evidence and how similar their results are, here are our error bars".
On the other hand, you have people saying
o Global warming is not happening
o The global warming that is not happening is being caused by natural sources.
o The global warming that is not happening that is racing ahead because of unstoppable natural forces ended in 1997.
o The global warming that ended in 1997 is still going on because of carbon dioxide from volcanos.
o The carbon dioxide levels, which are going up because of volcanic activity, are not really going up.
Then read a book like _The Climate Coverup_ and find out which side publishes arguments because they test well in focus groups.
Ethylene to get it started.
Setting off a cartridge is a bit like touching a blowtorch to the barrel.
Everyone I've talked to with gunsmithing or general materials engineering knowledge thinks an ABS barrel is not worth trying.
You can preserve the existing encryption engine by simply using more rounds. The 2-round version has been broken, so cryptographers recommend using the full 16 rounds, as is done in other encryption systems.
