Just because a pie and a basket are interchangeable before and after it doesn't address the fact that it still takes Annie ten times the resources to make a pie than it does Mike. Her efficiency doesn't magically improve because Mike is now making baskets too. Or are Annie and Bill part of the crowd that only want hand made products? What would happen when Mike starts making pies and baskets is that Annie and Bill get together and open up a fair trade, organic coffee house that also sells pies and baskets that they get from Mike.

Well according to the show The Almighty Johnsons (a really good comedy) Thor is living in New Zealand so he might need a visa after all. (Don't know if Kiwis need one or not.)
And so instead of fixing the underlying problem we'll put another band-aid on top and hope that it stops the bleeding. The problem is that one day we are going to run out of band-aids or that the bleeding will be too much.
It may be less disruptive to keep the almond orchards but it's the better solution. Unfortunately almonds are making so much money that it won't happen. Not only would a varied crop rotation be better for the bees but it would be better for the water management of the regions. Almonds require a lot of water and the orchards are draining the aquifers dry. But they just drill deeper instead of using techniques to reduce water (for example, not planting so many almonds).
The icons aren't the worst thing. There's plenty else on the screenshot that would drive me batty before the new icons. I'm so glad that I only have to use Windows once or twice a year because I got so tired of fighting with it. Now if I could just find a good software package to do Canadian business taxes on the Mac.
If they don't change things around then they can't make tons of money getting people to re-certify in the new version.
Better solution would be not to haul the colonies of bees all over the country throughout the year to pollinate the cash crops in the first place as it leaves them in a continuously weakened state.
Since Vito Barbieri thinks woman can swallow a camera for a gynecological exam these two would make a great pair for medical reform. http://www.startribune.com/lif...
I bought the Cree 60W equivalent for $12 and they are quite bright (800 lumens). The Cree 100W equivalent are around $24 here too. Maybe you should buy the bulbs in Canada since our dollar is sitting around $0.80 US.
Using the phone to replace the cards with bar codes on them is handy because it's removing a number of cards from your wallet. I've got four or five apps for loyalty programs on my phone that means I don't need to have the card in my wallet. I don't have them hooked up to pay automatically but I could with a couple of them.
My city is putting in LED lighting for the streets and traffic signals.
Also, where are you getting your LED lights? I just picked up a bunch for $12 and had coupons from the provincial power provider for $5 off each one.
I came here to mention this. For some reason the people that suggest reducing the light hitting the surface always fail to grasp that it would also reduce the crop yields (along with the growth of all of the other plants, reducing their carbon uptake). It would also reduce the electricity generated from solar power plants.
I don't understand it either especially since one of the capsules being used to ferry astronauts will be the Dragon which already connects fine with the ISS.
And if they gave him a list of everything he downloaded for his billing then he would complain about how they were tracking his every move online and invading his privacy.

Having done both programming and accounting I can say that accounting is by far easier than programming. Or do you mean typing in a bunch of code and have it compile. There's plenty of crap coders out there and that's what you are referring to.
