Parents wonder why their kids act so bad could it be that the entertainment sector keeps pushing the envelope because kids keep loosing interest in last years thing to have interest in the latest thing.
I mean think about it, we have a weight problem in America, why is this? We are stuck in front of our computers, our TVs, etc. This is because they are parenting devices and entertainment devices. We as adults make a choice to use these entertainment devices and because we are lazy we use these same entertainment devices on our children. Hence the reason why we have obese 5th graders. In the US we need to get back to basics and learn to turn off the electronic device and go outside.
Also why is it that we now need programs like this? Kids will always be kids. Children have always been bullied in one form or another why is now that this day in age it is a crime and a huge problem? Why not focus on the problem of why now in this day in age when a kid is bullied they shoot up a school or try to commit suicide. Lets find out why kids today are "soft" and let things like name calling or different opinions send kids over the edge where 20 years ago this sort of thing would not happen. If we do not solve that problem kids of today will be in for a rude surprise when they hit the real world.
I am not saying if a child is being sexually assaulted by a 50 year old in yahoo chat that the authorities should not be notified, I think they should and in regards to that I think the parents should make the decision to notify the police. In regards to bullying I think in some cases kids of today should grow up a little and prepare for real life and accept that sometimes people are assholes.
- Rush probably makes more then you
- He has his own radio show
- Most people in the US know who he is
Of that list I bet you cannot check any of those off for yourself? So in other words if Rush Limbaugh is the bar to be above, since his is the center of your joke, you are below that bar.So how worthless are you? Maybe your brain has less tissue compared to Rush?
Provide an API of functions an application can access, make sure an app stays in its own memory, via the API do not allow the application to have access to say the contacts with out a system message being displayed to the user first, etc.
As long as you have a computing system that can have more than one item in memory at one time, it starts to get very important how these things interact. Microsoft learned this a long time ago that applications could interact in destructive ways.
Microsoft did learn this, they gave each process its own memory space and required that each application say within its own allocated space.
Would you rather the attitude be that if you install software this removes any support obligation from Palm?
Dell, HP, and Microsoft do not void the warranty if you install software on your computer. They tell you that you have to first restore your system to its factory settings. Why not do the same thing with a palm pre?
I think something like the Volt will be nice for someone with a house and some extra cash to spend since this car cost 40k. How long will the batteries last? How much does it cost to replace the batteries?
I do not think the US market is ready for a mass explosion of electric cars. A few kinks need to be worked out:
- Shorten charge times, OR increase access to charging stations
- Decrease cost so the low to mid middle class can afford this car
- Increase the battery performance and reliability so the car can be used/driven for 10+ years
Students know that the teacher can not do anything to them, and that in some cases the parents don't care if they misbehave in school, or misbehave at all. So they do not respect authority figures.
It is one think to not respect authority when your rights are being violated, it is another thing to not respect authority when other people around you are trying to learn.
So I say post away.
