Let me put what I'm trying to say differently.
Imagine that you're presenting an equation to an audience. Consider the following four ways that you might choose to present that equation:
1. You could write it out in front of them on a chalkboard;
2. You could type it into PP or some other display software, live, with the equation being displayed on a screen of some sort as you type it;
3. You could type it into PP or some other display software in advance, and have the equation slowly revealed to the audience as if it was being written out;
4. You could type it into PP or some other display software in advance, and simply have the equation presented immediately in its entirety (akin to the entirety of a PP slide being revealed at once).
With admittedly nothing but personal experience, and the experience of professional acquaintances, to base this on, I claim that these four approaches will differ in the (for lack of a better term) psychological response they obtain from the audience, that those differences have to do with fundamental characteristics of how human beings process their environment, that much of those differences have to do with the psychological perception that the presenter is creating the information being presented at the time the presentation is taking place, and as a result those differences have nothing really to do with the effective use of software.
I could be wrong, but you seem to me to be operating from the premise that the only meaningful difference between communicating via chalkboard and communicating via PP is that PP is more featureful -- hence, referring to using a chalkboard as "regressing to using ONLY CHALK." I don't think that's true at all.
What TFA is suggesting is that communicating by chalkboard has fundamental differences from communicating by PP, in the same way (if not to the same severity) that communicating by in-person lecture is fundamentally different from communicating by a video on YouTube. It's conceivable that you could eliminate some of those differences by using PP in a way similar to how one uses the chalkboard -- for example, by entering content into slides live, in front of your audience -- but it's not obvious to me that there's a gain to doing that.
As reported in Phys.org, this appears to be the first time that such a design is actually powerful enough to do so without any external charging or other inputs required.
Of course, this is still in the animal testing phase, but this tech seems attainable and life changing."

It seems that BTCKing and Bitinstant have had people arrested over money laundering charges, and are now unavailable. If running an exchange counts as money laundering, then is the USA making itself a no-go area for bitcoin exchanges? Or will a reputable bank step up and run one complying with money laundering regulations."

Can someone explain to me how they can charge me to review the legality of my case? I realize they're offering to "give it back" if I win, but that's not relevant.
Presumably, because you agreed to it in the contract between you and the ISP. You know, the clause that says that they're free to alter the terms of service you're required to obey, at any time -- it's in the contract you didn't read, because nobody ever does.
Unfortunately it looks like she couldn't live with the results of her bad decision. I feel zero sympathy for this girl.
For someone who was tricked into exposing herself when she was 12??!?!
What a sad, sad person you are.
The least you could have done was post something at the bottom of your post like:
Disclosure: I serve as an Information Warfare Officer in the United States Navy Fleet Cyber Command/US Tenth Fleet. I have a master's degree in Information Warfare
To hold an Information Warfare position for US military organisations and then make broad political statements about how bad people who displease the US are without disclosing your position... even if these are your genuine personal opinions, well... let's just agree that you set yourself up for this one?
Myself? I don't think I have anything which would cause my opinion to be overly biased. I am a nerd, I own a Raspberry Pi, I play with Linux, I am doing a postgrad in robotics. Sorry, not a shill.
How in the world does that make any kind of logical sense?
What he posted was a series of links to NY Times articles. Would your knowledge of his employer have changed your interpretation of those New York Times articles, which he didn't author? If the stories he linked to are accurate, would your knowledge of his employer have changed the conclusions you would draw from them?
I might have some sympathy for this argument if he'd posted an extended opinion piece; but he didn't.
The truth is this: his point-of-view is an unpopular one one here, and so people (for example, you) are going to seize on anything they can to smear him, even if irrelevant. It's one step up from "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth."
Don't forget the black helicopters that have been hovering near your house since you posted!
I'd go for the tinfoil if I were you, man.
