I dunno about everyone else, but AT&T not only just canceled the rest of my contract term, but also cut my bill by $30 and gave me 4GB more data.
I went to Georgia Tech, and it certainly does NOT have the "ivy league" mentality. In fact the place prides itself on the practicality of its curriculum. The university actively engages industrial leaders to shape and form its curriculum to keep it current with demand.
I don't know what the deal is with the online Master's, though. I completed my attendance there when the Internet was just starting to take off, so I don't know if the same resources are available (like the Alumni mentoring program, etc...).
One of two possibilities:
1) The FAA does not understand the difference between a drone (which does not require visual contact with the operator to be flown) and a toy airplane (which cannot be controlled out of sight of its operator).
2) The FAA is trying to consolidate more power to government by conveniently misinterpreting the rules to give them the ability to ensnare model airplane owners in a tangled web of onerous regulation and raise more money.
My vote is on #2.
Ok! Ok! I must have, I must have put a decimal point in the wrong place or something. Shit. I always do that. I always mess up some mundane detail.
I love my Jura Capresso... I put beans in, and get awesome coffee out. Making expensive freeze-dried instant coffee will never compare.
The dad broke the confidentiality agreement by telling his daughter about it. Her post was just incontrovertible evidence that he did it.
The mindset you describe, self-preservation, is the reason that we never actually want to solve problems, win wars, cure diseases, or actually fix anything.
There is too much money to be made fighting wars, so we don't try to win them. There is too much money to be made treating cancer symptoms, so we don't try to cure it meaningfully. There is too much money to be made lobbying against polluted air, so we lobby for half-assed solutions that don't work. There is too much money to be made fighting the "war on drugs," so we make no effort to eradicate drugs. There is too much money to be made fighting crime, so we make no meaningful effort to reduce crime. Police departments love federal paramilitarization dollars.
It's all personal greed and self-preservation.
I still don't understand the uproar over Googlers carpooling to work...
