I liked the weather
Ok, first off i know your lying.
As a MS Stack software developer in LA, I barely had to do anything
Something isn't right because I am still getting offers for interviews here in SoCal
Uh, when you make professional contacts and they begin to know and trust you, word gets around and when positions come up so does your name. Its called networking? Maybe you dont need to know anything about networks as a MS Stack software developer..
but not much from where I really wanted to be
Again, networking. Your just some well tanned bum who lives on the beach and thinks its nice that this new place doesnt have sun 95% of the time. Why the heck WOULD they call you?
Oh yeah, and your like 30 miles from the corporate headquarters of MS, so there are probably a few more MS Stack software developers hanging around.
Let me add that "many" simply means the greater part of, so 3 or 4 could be the answer. If they had said "some" I could believe that to have been 2 or 3. But since the point was to emphasize how little the group knew, If the number was 4 I think they would have preferred to say "most".
So, my take is the actual number is 3.
Not much free will when you have a gun to your head.
Hence the motto "Live free or die"...
If that's the case then I'd like to see their sample size for full mouth x-rays. I'd bet it's smaller than the sample size for the partial/single bitwing and that could be the source of the vanishing connection. Basic statistics, if a known correlation exists, and you didn't find it in your particular sample check your sample size first. Throwing out the correlation because the smaller sample doesn't show what the larger sample does sounds a bit foolish, and if done that way would result in no correlation ever being found in anything.
Or the sample size for full mouth was larger and a better representation of the norm. Or both were the same just too small to draw a conclusion from.
Either way Lurie is correct in asserting that this type of inconsistency results in an inconclusive study.
You would be better off buying lottery tickets for your kids with the money that you're spending. At least there is a chance it could be used for something.
Consider that the cost of harvesting cord blood is about $1,500 and storing it per year is about $100. For 18 years you spend $3,300 or 1,100 powerball tickets.
Odds of winning the powerball are 1,100 to 195,249,054 (0.0000056%)
Odds of being afflicted with type 1 diabetes and being a part of a case study: 8 in 100,000 (0.00008%)
So actually, you have better odds of actually needing and using your cord blood. Although, as many have suggested, donating is a noble option too.
We don't have an hour of free time to blow...
Maybe if you spent less time vying for first post you would...
When your mind is software you can just alter your perception of time and fast forward through all the boring parts.
Next thing you know it will be the end of the universe and you'll have fast forwarded through everything of substance!
With a growth in his chest, two ruptured disks and no job, Verone hoped a three-year stint in prison would afford him the health care he needed
But the charge of larceny, not armed robbery, is unlikely to keep Verone behind bars for more than 12 months
You can't win. Even the simplest of plans the powers that be manage to screw you over on.
Yes but this guy cant afford a lawyer so a 3 year sentence could still be a possibility!
Also the planet could be stocked with water to provide thermodynamic energy, O2, and water for us and plants. Not sure how effective a big layer of ice is against gamma radiation, but it couldnt hurt.
And who says we have to have a large population, just big enough to withstand any disasters that might befall us along the way (earthquakes, radiation, comets, etc...).
You do know that there is an amazingly simple way to separate the salt from the water, right? It is called evaporation.
The concepts of desalination are certainly quite simple, its the economics that are complicated.
After the battery is discharged, the salt water is drained and fresh water is added to begin the cycle again.
This is awesome, we can use up all our fresh water and would have an unlimited supply of salt water!
Congrats on the new release Patrick, and all the slackware crew!
The problem is most Slashdotters were hailing as "free speech" the Facebook thing where someone decided an employer couldn't fire an employee for blatantly badmouthing him on Faceboook.
I think in this case there is some implied confidentiality given to the student. Maybe she didnt name names (I did not RTFA), but perhaps the identity could have been inferred by those in the class or their parents.
Frankly though, if i were a school administrator, trying to keep students in school, or attract more students to the school, i would argue that she is damaging the public image of the institution and thus financially harming it.
