It's not like they need to have a physical presence for their app to work there.
>Homeopathy basis: a substance administered that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure similar symptoms in sick people.
Yes, and that is just completely wrong to begin with. Taking a small dose of something that gives you a headache won't cure your headache, not to mention it's such a small dose that there isn't actually any of it left...
Bingo! I've been a programmer for almost 20 years and have never done crunch time. It hasn't hurt my career at all.
There are programming jobs that pay better than that and don't require the ridiculous crunch times, you know. I honestly have no idea why anyone would take a job like that.
If you take a job at a place like that without letting them know that you will not be working unpaid overtime, it's your own fault.
Salary is based on 40 hours per week. Anything over that is overtime, and if you're not being paid for it, you shouldn't be working it. Otherwise, you are simply donating your free time to your company.
I wouldn't do it under any circumstances.
There isn't much controversy in the actual sciences about whether or not IQ tests are relevant. They are. Whatever they measure is highly correlated with positive life outcomes.
>Everyone is exactly as intelligent as a human, unless they're brain damaged by disease or defect. Any child, any adult, properly motivated, with proper practice and effort, can be a genius. It is just that simple.
This is false on its face. It does not matter how much some people try, or study, or work hard - they will never be a genius in anything and it's not because they have brain damage. There are variations in how our brains work, just as with how the rest of our bodies work, that are heritable and that limit how much we can achieve. I think it's a disservice to tell people that the reason that they aren't succeeding at something is because they aren't trying hard enough, when in reality they are literally incapable of that kind of performance.
>There's nothing in this research that shows equal opportunity or head start programs don't help, much less that they are a "waste."
Well, not in *this* research. The government's own research does shows that head start is a massive waste of money:
"In sum, this report finds that providing access to Head Start has benefits for both 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds in the cognitive, health, and parenting domains, and for 3-year-olds in the social-emotional domain. However, the benefits of access to Head Start at age four are largely absent by 1st grade for the program population as a whole."
As it should be.
I can also assure you that most people who attend do not buy or sell anything outside of coffee and ice.
>He parsed is words in such a way that he was deliberately misleading while telling the absolute truth.
Are you insane? Read the quote that Uberbah posted below and tell me how it can be parsed in any way that makes it less than a lie. There was no wiggle room in his statement, he flat out answered 'no'. And it's not just our phones that data is being collected about, it is the content of all of our emails and text messages, which he also knew about. He belongs in prison with Oliver North - oops! yet another example of how the laws in the US only apply to us little people.
It doesn't matter what Tenet insists, the US has prosecuted people for waterboarding in the past, both in world war 2 and domestically. It doesn't magically become legal just because some bureaucrat insists that it is.
