If [Raboud's] initial comments about lack of interest in LSB were not evidence enough, a full three months then went by with no one offering any support for maintaining the LSB-compliance packages and two terse votes in favor of dropping them. Consequently, on September 17, Raboud announced that he had gutted the src:lsb package (leaving just lsb-base and lsb-release as described) and uploaded it to the "unstable" archive. That minimalist set of tools will allow an interested user to start up the next Debian release and query whether or not it is LSB-compliant—and the answer will be "no."
According to the Denver Post, an EPA mine crew working Thursday at the Standard Mine in the mountains near Crested Butte, triggered another spill of some 2,000 gallons of wastewater into a nearby mountain creek. Supporting Tipton's remarks to Watchdog Arena, the Denver Post report states that the EPA had failed to release a report about the incident at the time of its writing.
Unlike the Gold King Mine, where on Aug. 5, an EPA mine crew exploring possible clean-up options, blew out a structural plug in the mine releasing over 3 million gallons of toxic waste into the Animas River, the Standard Mine is an EPA-designated superfund site, where the federal agency has been directing ongoing clean-up efforts.
According to a the Washington Times regarding this latest spill, Tipton's spokesman, Josh Green, said that locals in the Crested Butte area confirmed the spill. Watchdog Arena spoke directly with Tipton Thursday afternoon who claimed, "They are reporting that the spill consisted of "gray water," and was not toxic. But the definition of gray water does not preclude the presence of possible toxic substances."
It doesn't matter that this spill is smaller and at a superfund site. If a private landowner screwed up like this, and didn't report it, as required by the EPA, the EPA would move in faster than the speed of light to take everything they owned and to put them in prison.
I might be subjective as I'm the author of it, but this somewhat remind me of my http://mdoc.su/ project, which is what I call a deterministic URL shortener, or, perhaps, better yet, a semantic URL provider.
The whole source code is an nginc.conf configuration file, and is just a bunch of regular expressions and `rewrite` and `location` rules, available under an BSD/ISC licence, of course -- that's the one that comes with "no strings attached", BTW!
If Twitter's behaviour for elongating the URLs in the public Tweets is any indication, their own bots actually download the contents of the links, allegedly trying to scan it for malware or whatnot.
I, personally, suffer because I never experience any URLs being shortened, they instead only get elongated by the service, reducing already constrained character space.
I mean, you don't have to go far to find a URL shorter than http://t.co/qLxImbQYvn. Even if you have a newly registered
And Twitter should really change the name of their subservice disservice to be more technically accurate.
The CEO of Sonic.net is especially annoyed (and rightly so) -- he can't even refer to his company without getting an elongation!
> How is it still legal for these companies to advertise and sell a whole product but only deliver part of it?
I completely agree. I bought a Galaxy Nexus from Google, and highly enjoyed the Zero Shutter Lag functionality, which was prominently advertised as a major feature of the device. Come Nexus 4, and the software updates to my Galaxy Nexus, and the feature is now gone, and it takes several seconds to take pictures.
Is there any recourse?
Don't you love the professionalism and issue escalation of the NETGEAR support team? Shows that we, the mere mortals, are not alone here at all!
If even the security research guy can't get them to stop sitting on their arses, what the mere mortals without such pressing issues are left to do when they encounter the various bugs here and there?
The rest are probably contractors, which wouldn't be employees. So, the whole metric of the number of full-time [on-site?] employees is quite biased to underestimate the number of people involved in the operation.
But most people in the US are not. Worldwide is meaningless.
Where did you get such information? Even if less than 50% of people in the US are lactose intolerant, the number is unlikely to be that far away from 50%. Most people aren't even aware they're lactose intolerant.
Above and beyond that, even the strictest of severe allergies can be tamed by - guess what - controlled exposure to the substance in question. Give a nut-allergy sufferer sufficiently small injections of nuts and build it up gradually and the allergy
The above is complete BS that has no proof whatsoever with science.
On the contrary, science tells us that these things work the other way around:
Ten to 15 percent of people are immune to poison ivy and will never have a rash. Repeated contact however will not give you immunity, in fact just the opposite, Pell explains. “The rashes get worse and worse as your immune system gets better and better at recognizing urushiol.”
Most adults, worldwide, are lactose intolerant. http://skeptics.stackexchange....
Given the above, it's kind of amazing that Nutrition Facts still have no words about lactose content. Why?
Wouldn't it be nice to know how much lactose each food has?
