Just restrict calories. I lost the most weight doing that. I was eating 2200 calories a day and I was never hungry except when I woke up in the morning. After mastering the calories, I went to restricting sodium and increasing protein while decreasing carbs. Just one step at a time. It eventually became habit. Exercising is a must to maintain (or increase) lean tissue. The net result should be fat loss.

Isn't that what consumers pay Netflix for (and justly so!)? And where the hell would that work? If the ISP didn't pay the bill, then the service would fail and the consumer wouldn't pay their part of the bill either. These guys are fucking insane. A chimp eating carrots out of his own asshole makes more sense.

Reality: cable companies are afraid of Netflix because they fear the day they lose the competition with them.

Probably the most eye opening math class I took that really made my coding skills take off was called Applied Math in high school. The focus was just what the title says: application of knowledge learned. It really taught me how to think outside the box when it came to solving problems with math. Solutions I've written for games left me asking myself where the hell I learned the solution to the problem: applied math.
