A bill has been sent to the governors office and he is expected to sigh.
Because of a missed opportunity?
[N95 facemasks] are certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
Whose national institute? Ah, I see. I wonder what China's equivalent institute certifies, or if they even have an equivalent institute.
Under Armour developed the skintight aerodynamic suit for the Sochi Games and it was pretested for specific conditions
Except for having a boner.
when the CFC jumped in 12 carriers and EACH ONE lit a cyno I knew we were in for a ride...
HOLY SHIT!!! That's crazy! [discretely turns to friend and whispers, "what the hell is a cyno?"]
A few years ago my wife and I took our daughters to a stage show. In front of us while waiting in line to be admitted was another couple with two little boys. The boys had in their possession an assortment of Disney princess dolls. The father saw the Disney princess-themed dress on one of my daughters and pointed it out enthusiastically to his sons. I asked the couple about the dolls. They went on for a short while about breaking gender stereotypes. I replied:
"You seem very well-informed about gender issues. Were you brought up with dolls (looking at the man) and trucks (looking at the woman)?"
"No, quite the opposite.", said the man, "My Dad is overdosed on testosterone. Football...", etc.
"And despite your stereotypical upbringing, you have this keen awareness about gender issues. Why don't you think your boys are as capable as you were in developing an awareness of gender issues?"
The conversation went downhill from there. I want to ask a similar question of the brain trust that has given code.org a new gender and racial equity focus. Why do you think females and non-whites are unable to find the same appeal in computer science that you and I have found? I sure as hell wasn't drawn by some illusory "Hey, this is only for nerdy white males" appeal. I fell in love with the logic of it, and the absolutely beautiful art of solving problems with programming language constructs.
Damn it. Didn't realize I wasn't logged-in.
There will certainly be abuses. There will be people who take and don't give back. And this should be prevented
I think this has been severely underemphasized and is missing a dynamic. There are compelling arguments to evaluate whether social justice is doing more harm than good. http://www.columbian.com/news/2013/dec/03/ideology-of-victimhood-hampers-those-at-the-bottom/
