You don't even need to teach the controversy. I remember learning about the Platonic model of the solar system in university. It was so that we'd be better prepared to understand the ancient texts we were going to read. At no one point did the professor even suggest that this was a possibility for reality. This topic (in general, I didn't read the syllabus) for instance would make for an excellent Social Science or even Anthropology class and I could see when students of medicine might want to take it as an elective or a part of a social policy/public medicine curriculum.
I have no problem with a course teaching about what anti-vaccine supporters claim if it helps doctors debunk it in person and helps them dismantle it in person. I hope this is what it is about.
What are the advantages of MIPS over ARM? Seems like ARM would have a healthier ecosystem and more software vetted for it outside of maybe legacy stuff.
I want to control how my files go digital and what encoding and what DRM and devices to use. That's why I still buy CDs and rip them for my own use.
Maybe those farms never belonged there in the first place, or they should have not let the population grow to the point that it was unsustainable?
Our society doesn't just need jobs, it needs predictable jobs. It needs jobs that a person of median intelligence and median means and median grades can work towards in highschool go to college for and the reasonably get hired at that gives them 40 hours a week of work for a decent wage to afford with a partner a house and two kids and then can expect to maintain that job/career roughly for their working life. That is the backbone of our society. Saying that there will be jobs is fine, but if those jobs boom and bust or require midlife retraining or insane amount of ours or risk, well that doesn't really help. The main point is what do we need to preserve our way of life, not just the jobs themselves. These are the kinds of jobs that made America the envy of those living under communism and brought it down. I would know since my parents under the cover of night smuggled themselves out from under the iron curtain. It was definitely not for the opportunity to participate in unbridled capitalism.
That is "onshoring" not "insourcing". "Insourcing" is when instead of hiring an external company to do some work, you hire your own employees for the task; like when a growing company gets it's own lawyer. "Outsourcing" is when you take work that you'd normally do in-house, and contract it out to a thrid party. "Offshoring" is where instead of having work done locally you send it to a cheaper country.
In case it wasn't clear, my point is that when we talk about race there are many confounding factors such as culture and socio-economic class and its hard to figure out what the actual underlying issues... and if you could its probably complicated.
The name one I found dubious since they chose middle-class white names and lower-class black names. It's not like they chose Billy-Ray Luellen-Mae. I suspect that a lot of "racism" in the US is actually classism where being black correlates being lower-class, and so it forms the assumption "black means lower-class unless proven otherwise". This would explain why people forget that Colin Powell was black and other successfully black men. "Black", I posit, is a hybrid race/class construct. --- Annecdote: I met a black African girl from Tanzania who **hated** African American names and African Americans and had nothing good to say about them. That was the moment that really made me realised is that it is not actually about race-itself. Personally, I notice myself much more comfortable dealing with Africans than African Americans as cab drivers, much friendlier, jovial, positive, and animated.
dcblogs writes: Gartner predicts one in three jobs will be converted to software, robots and smart machines by 2025," said Peter Sondergaard, Gartner's research director at its big Orlando conference. "New digital businesses require less labor; machines will make sense of data faster than humans can," he said. Smart machines are an emerging "super class" of technologies that perform a wide variety of work, both the physical and the intellectual kind. Machines, for instance, have been grading multiple choice test for years, but now they are grading essays and unstructured text. This cognitive capability in software will extend to other areas, including financial analysis, medical diagnostics and data analytic jobs of all sorts, says Gartner. "Knowledge work will be automated."

Thousands of packages, but the real question is: does it run SystemD?
"Transform and Roll out!" from Transformers. I always cover my mouth when I say it, so I look like Optimus Prime. "All Systems Nominal" from Mechwarrior. I love that sound as my computer boot up sound. Then "Engines Shutting Down" as my shut down sound.
So require a key for override, that way the 9 year old can go to grandma's house but not into a tree. If you need to pay attention and be prepared to intervene at any second then how is this not strictly worse than the current system? It's less convenient than a cab and more expensive than a bus. Pretty useless. And people multi-task with phones and laptops now, what makes you think they'll pay any attention at all when cars drive themselves 99.99% fine on there own?
Not "really good" just much better than everything else at the time. Something that works 5% of the time is much better than others that work 1% of the time, but 10 years later most of the new things work 25% of the time. So the 5% was best in class for its time then, but total shit now.
That'll encourage me to buy and will take care of the DRM bit.
