+10 for you sir!
I couldn't agree more. The person who write the summary obviously has zero concept of being an academic in the current millennia. Ego? Oh please. The modern academic is expected to undertake usually four or five roles at the same time (teaching, research, professional engagement, administration *shudder*). Every one of these categories has a "metric" and if an activity doesn't fall into one of these categories then why the hell are you doing it? If it isn't part of your job, you've just wasted time that should have been spent doing your job(s)! And as others have repeatedly stated, one day later the several hours of effort you put in to create a wp entry gets wiped by someone who has a chip on their shoulder and the knowledge off a cornflakes box. Ok - maybe that was a little jab also, but try walking a mile in the shoes of an academic before you start the "ivory tower", "ego" and other name calling.
+1 for you sir.
I thought exactly the same thing as I read the post you are referring to. For the record I hold a PhD in plant physiology
In particular, check out the part where if you find a trade secret by accident and knowingly disclose it, you are totally (although civilly) fucked.
Read that more carefully. First, the company needs to make reasonable efforts to protect its trade secrets. Second, the person disclosing it needs to know it's a trade secret. Neither of those is obviously the case here.
Please, stop acting like you're an authority on things you clearly know nothing about. Especially when it involves the law.
I may sit on a jury to decide these cases, and so may you. This is a matter every US citizen can reasonably discuss and form their own opinion on.
Merchants, immersed in the bustling commerce of Rome, who suddenly found themselves shipwrecked along with a handful of other sailors on some island in the Mediterranean would likely have, "showed signs of withdrawal, craving and anxiety along with an inability to function well without their "
Definition of "boorish":
adjective - like or characteristic of a boor; rude; awkward; ill-mannered
I think it fits like a fiddle. Even if the name for dutch, land grabbing motherfuckers of the previous centuries was "Boer", they were and still are "boorish" in nature.
To be honest, I don't give a damn what they call themselves. Given the fact that, after what they did for centuries to the locals in South Africa, the whites are still allowed to keep the lion share of wealth in SA to themselves and that under an ANC government of the 3rd generation, I got no patience for any boorish Boer coming in here and bad mouthing his own, fellow black countrymen with racist slander that could have come straight out of Goebbels vocabulary.
If blacks would have been committing such crimes against whites for centuries, they'd been exterminated as a whole as soon as whites would have gained the upper hand.
So what is that musmax moron complaining about again? Ah, yes. That he won't enjoy the soccer world championship as there are too many black guys around.
Got a problem with all the blacks surrounding you musmax? The cure to that one would be LEAVE AFRICA NOW!
Before they opened the phone nobody knew if it was a hoax, publicity stunt, or actual lost prototype.
So really it's like looking inside a lost wallet for an id before returning it to the owner.
I know you don't usually photograph and blog about lost wallet - but that's not illegal.
at $11 per 1000 ad views, thats 88k in ad revenue. Nevermind that they probably would have gotten at least a quarter of that without the apple story.
I'm almost certain that a lawsuit defense against apple will cost much than that.
I am an Australian, suffer from Chrohns, and I have been on Humira for the past 14 months, and have almost no symptoms now: 18 months ago I was in hospital facing major surgery. You have to jump through a few hoops to get it (google for CDAI), but Medicare will pay for it. It costs the government $1800 a month, but I pay more than that in tax, and if I didn't get this drug, I wouldn't be working (or paying tax), which would cost the govt more in the long run.
"...research which showed people still use COBOL at least 10 times throughout the course of an average working day in Australia."
Given that the average Australian works about 2 hours a day, that's a lot of COBOL...
Is protecting your right to not receive spam abusing the law? Is there something illegal about being a professional litigant? I thought we called them lawyers.
No. A litigant is (in the context used here) a party to a lawsuit, not the attorney representing them.
Android, Blackberry, and Palm owners not caring and loving Google Voice.
As a G1 owner who happily uses GV on a daily basis, I have to say you're dead on about that "not caring" part.
Ya, i'm just following the story for the lulz.
...and the splitting of content into three separate games...
As opposed to just two with the first one?
I know it's just one, but it's going to be repeated a substantial number of times.
Substantial in relation to the number of sales though? I'd wager almost certainly not. Sure, there are a couple dozen people here on
