Do they, now?
I still haven’t figured out how to do that without Plex. DLNA is a hot mess, and I gave up in frustration trying to find a free, software-only DLNA server. Even if it’s just a demo.
Logged in just to comment on this without being taken as a shill. (seriously - check my karma.) In much the same way that CryptoCat’s dev team have realized that usability is a core feature of security, and not a nice-to-have, so too has the Plex team made usability a core feature of their product in ways the XBMC team was late to implement.
Plex’s lack of extensibility, scraper support, and local storage support drive me up a goddamn tree, but Plex works and XBMC doesn’t. I’m not a linux person, but I am a nerd - code is not my day job, but I’m teaching myself at night. Sweet baby Jesus, I tried XBMC so many freaking times that eventually I just gave up. And when my certified-Mac-tech friend showed me this miraculous XBMC fork that worked on OSX, with his remote control, and without fucking around, I spent a few years not looking back. I think I got myself banned from the TVDB trying to get Plex to identify shows properly, but it offered me the ability to play back home videos and fansubbed anime on the TV when I could not afford a dedicated HTPC - and that included salvage, scrounged laptops, and selling my body for transistors. (it was a rough patch in my life)
Ironically, I more or less quit watching even foreign television about when I got Plex to sit down and play nice and XBMC became Kodi and began to make setup less infuriating for people who didn’t hack C in their spare time.
More ironically - nay, infuriatingly - I spent most of my free time a couple weeks ago trying to sideload Kodi on my FireTV to try it out, and only found out there was an official app for it after the app was taken down. Way to piss in my cheerios, Bezos.
Then being told any sexual act with a girl could end up with you in jail.
I was pretty literally told that at my college orientation - 10 minutes after it was pointed out that campus security was entirely handled by local police with arrest powers, and orders to enforce campus policies, we were taken to the dorms and it was casually mentioned that the university policy on sexual consent allowed the female partner to revoke consent retroactively, and one had to get verbal permission every time some new kind or level of intimacy was reached during a sexual encounter.
Standards were relaxed twice in my last two years, but I sure wasn’t interested in dating on-campus - any time I had any passing interest, I flashed back to the dorms, and the interest quickly passed.
The market solution to being allowed to die for want of medical care is...
Well, some fairly unpleasant things become rational when you have noting to lose.
OWC provides proof!
Also, I've read things suggesting that it suppresses the Cyp450 system; again, an enzyme system focused on detoxifying incidental environmental poisons. I haven't chased down the study in question, but I'll definitely do so in light of the recent announcement.
If the kids have nothing to hide, then release it. If not, pull the kids from the school. They're not obligated to go, and they're certainly not obligated to be abusive assholes either. We don't need more enabling of bullying and peer enforced sociopathy.
Actually, I'm pretty sure they are obligated to go, and in some states parents' drivers licenses can be revoked if their kids are truant.
if it wasn't a public school? Sure. Don't go snooping around my shit. Even if i've got nothing to hide I have a lot to be embarrassed about or just don't want people to know about.
What if the accused bully has entirely unrelated facts to hide? Say, closeted gay?
I suspect that knock-on effects mean this won't actually reduce bullying all that much, just spread the fun around. Also, to run with that theory, there's a reason kids tend to stay in the closet until they're out of their parents' house. In extremis, to avoid child abuse. In milder cases, they may otherwise end up sent by well-meaning parents to some hellhole of a "pray the gay away" camp or boarding school. Further, there are laws on the books protecting children in some states from having to disclose certain medical conditions to their parents - abortions, and in certain proposals I haven't heard about having gone anywhere (but I haven't heard go away) contraceptive implants may be added to that. I wonder which law will have an exception carved into it for the other's footprint?
Second point - why are public schools different?
Because it IS a public school? Yes. The rules are and should be different.
Why? How can your rights magically vanish by virtue of the fact that you attend public school? Especially your rights regarding your life OUTSIDE of school.
So only people who have enough money to attend private school have civil rights?
... Actually, that explains a lot.
I'm not even going to try to calculate the size of the ash pond, but here's what we have for the mountain of coalâ¦
I used the Embalse nuclear plant as a baseline, because it was the first thing I found on Wikipedia.
A coal-fired power plant producing the same 2109 MWt output would burn 2,463,620,940 kilograms of coal per year, for a fuel stockpile on site of 24,636,209,400 kilograms. If you prefer tons, Wolfram says that's 27,160,000. - 27 megatons and change. Since uranium in the core is the form it is used in, we shall assume this is powdered coal magically prevented from blowing away, perhaps with a water mist, or plastic sheeting.
The specific energy of coal is 24 MJ/kg; of TNT, a mere 4.6 - a 5.2-fold difference.
Allowing for this, the coal pile contains 141 megatons worth of energy.
While it might be infeasible to efficiently detonate this mountain of coal, odds are once a fire starts, it would be impossible to put out, forming a firestorm effect which may aerosolize enough powdered coal to cause a thermobaric explosion.
Even failing that, the result would approximate a particularly bad coal seam fire, and the surface area involved in combustion, as well as the open-air nature of the fire, would expose the local population to a manmade âoeevil windâ - substantial portions of the coal's mass would be released in the form of CO2 and other combustion gases, asphyxiating anyone unfortunate to be downwind of it. Assuming only 10 million tons of the coal is released in the form of CO2, the result is 3.932 cubic kilometers of heavier-than-air gas rushing downhill from the fire. This will not be released all at once, but instead will sustain the event, perhaps long enough to kill even the vegetation that isn't incinerated by the firestorm or simple radiant heat from an unexpectedly well-behaved fire that doesn't spark secondary blazes - which is a rather likely eventuality.
Granted that storing ten years of coal on-site at a powerplant is vanishingly unlikely, but when apples-to-apples comparisons are made the law of large numbers suggests that any calamity at a fuel dump of this magnitude - of any kind - is likely to be severe, if not a mass-casualty event.
My math, for verification:
27 kJ / gram for bituminous coal
80620 kJ / gram for uranium
2109 MWt for the Embalse nuclear power plant
2986 times denser power
3.154Ã--107 seconds per year
2109/.027 = 78,111 grams per second
2,463,620,940 kilograms of coal per year
P.S.: You're an ass.
We just don't have the technology to detect the toxins released by that remotely - except in so far as the coal ash is itself startlingly radioactive.
