being asked to power up devices is not new at all. I had to power up my laptop on a flight sometime Fall 1998.
Yea but after 9/11 and all the reviews of airport security the "power on your devices" thing was dropped because at the time all the experts said it was useless.
And yet here we are today.... I'm just waiting for the day when you have to ship all your luggage a day ahead of travel and fly in paper hospital gowns.
Mild problems following inactivated flu vaccine:
- soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
- sore, red or itchy eyes
If these problems occur, they usually begin soon after the shot and last 1 or 2 days.
Everyone who gets the vaccine is guaranteed to feel crappy and be less productive that day
No. You're wrong, and you're spreading misinformation.
First, from the flu shot? Your arm might be sore that day, and that's generally about it. The odds of getting even a low-grade fever or being achy are quite low.
Not true. I know for myself when I get the Flu shot I generally feel like crap for about a day. This should be expected, the shot triggers the immune system. Even so, I've had the flu (not to be confused with the common cold, which most people do) twice in my life and I'm more than happy to trade a "meh" day to reduce the odds that I'll ever go through that again.
If Google doesn't also have this creative commons filter, Bing has become the superior product for clip art searches.
Indeed. Every single bit of technology ever devised has been used to kill people. It's what we do.
Unless you're writing cheesy made-for-TV movies, nothing to see here. Move along.
I wonder if anyone has ever used click-bait to kill someone....
Wouldn't the person require a release form and consent from the people in the video to upload it or use it anywhere?
Depends on the circumstances and where it was taken but in most cases no release is required in the US. On top of that, it's part of the public record so that also factors in. At that point it's like republishing an arrest report or similar record.
This is something that can be fixed with legislation. Take the video out of the public record and restrict it to police/prosecutors and those individuals directly involved in a particular incident. Put a request process in place so the media can go through an judge where the privacy vs reporting issues can be weighed on a case by case basis. We already do this with other records where privacy of the individual(s) involved outweighs unrestricted public access. Some states have also started to do this with things like mugshots to prevent them from being used on mugshot websites (which are just a legal shakedown scheme).
What "studios" are you talking about? Isn't this kind of thing up to the publisher/funder (i.e. HBO)? In any case, it doesn't detract from the point. If these decisions are up to the studio, then every single person involved with marketing for the studio is incompetent. They're incompetent in thinking that DRM has a point when non-DRM files will always be posted on piracy sites within minutes of an airing. Why would someone pay for something inferior?
This isn't per-episode. It's a subscription to HBO, but sans cable. So no, all the content they show is not theirs. The vast majority is not theirs actually.
I suspect BS, but I'll hear out the argument if there is actual evidence. Sliding down the resolution to 900p from 1080p would mostly save you on GPU, and Graphics memory usages. In a more detailed artilce it was stated that they picked 900p because they didn't want to fight with the differences between the XBone and PS4. The main reason the PS4 keeps getting 1080p and the XBone does not is that the memory for the graphics is so much faster. So if someone actually has the PC version and can so that "AI" is burning every processor at 100% then I'll buy their argument as plausable. Until then the story has changed from day to day, and isn't believable. If the AI has something to do with it then the AI coder has probably deadlocked the system when they use multiple cores, and has been cheating by using only one core.
Well if Watch_Dogs (another UbiSoft title) is any indication then I would believe it. I bought the PC version (yea yea, I know, Watch_dogs!? Fool me once...) and ran it on a 2nd gen i5. Don't recall the model exactly but it was clocked north of 3Ghz. Not a beast by today's standards but not horrible either. With that and a 780ti, the game was horribly CPU bound. Constantly at 100% CPU. Upgrading to a i7 4790K and it still runs at around 60% CPU. So yes, I can completely believe that their games are CPU bound. Now, as to why, and if it's necessary or just massively unoptimized, well......
Consumptions of infected simian meat has been the explanation for a very long time. Why does everyone seem surprised?
Because, at the same time, we've been told HIV can't spread orally.
Well since we don't routinely butcher and eat people, I imagine they felt they could leave that method out of the pamphlet. However blood-blood contact is also a known, disclosed method of transmission. It's just a lot less common in humans than sexual contact.
How exactly does a virus change from a chimp version to a human version?
The same way avian and swine viruses jump to humans: mutation.
