actually, many many people are saved by AEDs every day. I've seen it done. In one case at my daughter's school a kid's grandfather dropped during a drama production. A student ran and got the AED our department had placed in the school, a parent used it on the floor of the auditorium. The man WALKED to the ambulance when it arrived a few minutes later.
But an automatic defibrillator will not shock an arrested rhythm. The machine can only shock specific kinds of fibrillation -- where the heart is fluttering in a disorganized way that doesn't pump blood the way it should. A fully arrested heart wouldn't be detected by the machine. You'd need a trained medic to manually shock in those cases.
Yeah, except that I get hired to write the code that other people sell as software as a service. I need to invent software as a service as a service services.
Miss a payment and that fancy application code I built for your website that you run for a huge corporation stops working.... hmmmm.... if only I wasn't so damn ethical...

Like every other robot, endlessly repeating the disingenuous arguments and nonsense spewed forth by political entertainment clowns who don't care one bit who they hurt so long as they keep up their ratings, you have lots of declarations about lies and hell, but almost no facts. How boring.
Shit! There were proto-republicans!
Fscking Google. Too clever by half.
Pretty much the same, on a floating barge here in Portland. Just read an article about it the paper (dead tree version). It's pretty clearly tied to google, that's clear. Also, the registrations of these two barges were a three letter designation and then 0010 and 0011 so there's probably at least one more out there (0001) somewhere and quite possibly at 0000 too.
His whole set of ideals and processes is about not having to trust an individual person to make you secure. What he publishes is open, as are the software and techniques he espouses. The point is that if he's not trustworthy there should be people out there that will spot it. Personally, I'm not qualified but I do have some level of trust that there are plenty of people who are and who do check. If not, we're all screwed but there's no point in going down that path.
What, SAML wasn't a big enough pain in the ass for you?
I don't really know, but I believe it was far long than that. The point is, it can certainly be done. What they're looking to do in Japan is divert the ground water around that site for some duration. If it can be done, it can be done - how long is just a question of the correct application of copious amounts of both energy and money.
In Boston, for parts of the Big Dig in the Back Bay area, this was how the tunneling was done. The ground there is far too soupy (that's a technical term used by geologists) to tunnel through effectively. They ran water with an antifreeze agent (just salt I think) through the pipes and kept it chilled below the freezing point of regular water. Over time it froze the ground in the whole area so they could tunnel in it and reinforce the tunnel before finally allowing the ground to thaw. It seems to have worked just fine for Boston.
Well, others have pointed out that I'm mistaken about the amount of loss in electrical lines -- but as to loss in gas lines, it's actually very minimal. I'm a firefighter and so have had some training in dealing with both high pressure long-haul gas lines and low pressure home delivery lines.
Thank you. This is helpful information.
