No, we don't. If you don't have the water, or at least the hydrogen and oxygen, you don't have a large body of water to moderate the temperature and host cyanobacteria to create oxygen, which takes hundreds of thousands to millions of years, assuming you have enough bound oxygen to begin with. We don't have the technology. We can't even filter out a little carbon dioxide in our own atmosphere.
That assumes the winds are perfectly linear and even fairly constant, which of course, is impossible on a sphere.
The problem is they are advertising a "free" upgrade to everyone with Win 7+ right now. Who doesn't want a FREE upgrade? Obvioously
No, she doesn't. He specifically said:
"but she is just not very passionate about coding or IT in general."
So yes, it does look like he's trying to push her. Most women I know take a few months of maternity leave, not a few years, so maybe that is why he is pushing, but he's pushing her in the wrong direction.
There are idiot proof toolkits to do this right now, and they've been around for some time..
It has been banned for all but the very rich, thanks to a wave of new regulations. 90 percent, yes 90 percent of my industry is gone and we are paring back.
Capitalism used to be a fun game to play in America.
There will always be poor countries. Those are the ones without all the shiny planes and nuclear bombs. We know ways to create our own.
Lots of books, science, theories, mitigations.
We just don't care.
In a way, it makes a perverse sense; my kids can deal with it. If not, oh well. Not my problem.
On a more optimistic note, when things do hit crisis level, I have little doubt that technology and engineering will provide solutions to a existential risk. The issue is the motivation ($$) behind such an effort. Until there is a demonstrable need, perhaps, what you are seeing is the best optimization of resources according to our collective will.
Oh yeah.. Get off my lawn.
And 12 or 13 will also think this is a good idea. The rest won't. Like New Coke.
Not all change is good, not all change is bad, but when something works and has for years, it is pretty stupid to change it. This is like the "New Coke" of design ideas.
..which is NOT to detect weapons.
They're trained to detect common tools, water bottles, and other harmless items to harass people. This performance is what is incentivized and reinforced, so that's what is optimized.
Security theatre doesn't work. Security that works offends people.
C'est la vie. Shoes off!
For the record, I met her on the job. Bitter? Me? Never.
If she cheated on her last fiancee, she'll cheat on you too, eventually.
