simple economics drives the explosion of tuition, and almost nothing else.

i've been running win10 on my primary dev desktop for months now and on an i3 laptop, and i can say, without a doubt, the best thing about it is the install.
i have yet to have to install a driver for anything, and everything "just works" right from the jump.
its a pretty amazing technical achievement, considering the size of the wintel environment.
instead of Wordpress, try a MVC framework and a Bootstrap 3-based theme has your jumping off point.
i currently use Laravel and BS3 themes from wrapbootstrap.com or, of course, themeforest.
you should find that with composer, you can easily install whatever modules you may need in Laravel, and the hand-coded aspect of the prebuilt BS3 themes makes integrating them pretty darn easy.

...if it saves just ONE policeman's life!
how expensive is this gadget? does it really work in the field like it does in the lab? is it practical?
the only real application i see for it is that it allows cops to know how many (apparently gun-toting, meth crazed) baddies are hiding in the house ready to shoot-it-out with them?
not really an everyday thing.
The Chinese supposedly are drop testing a mini-shuttle similar to the X-37 which people have been calling the Shenlong.
...as opposed to the new Schlong program, which most foreign officials consider a real dick move by the Chinese.
...it is gender bias that most women don't become plumbers either?
So, what you're saying is there's going to be lots of close-up cuts of Sulu stomping on the Enterprise's clutch and forcefully downshifting.
that would be totally amazing, to be honest,
I see a small percentage of the population complain about something, and if they come off as being on the side of a society approved message ie; "porn is bad" then they can get their way, an inordinate amount of power for a small whiny percentage of the population
