Yes, police are there to enforce laws, but I would argue to differ on that they are there to protect you. They are there to protect society in general, not necessarily you, and the powers they have only allow them to really put you in jail (or taz you and put you in jail, or shoot you and put you in jail, or shoot you and put you in a grave). That is really the extent of their power.
If you don't believe me, go read the miranda rights. By talking and interacting with police, they only thing they can really do is put you in jail. It is not up to them to prove your innocence in a potential crime, they are there to prove you guilty, and anything you say or do can and will be used against you.
I'm not saying this is a good thing, but it is the current reality that we live under. 50-70 years ago, this simply wasn't the case everywhere in the nation, but not anymore (sure there were sections, especially if you were a minority that this happened to even back then). You can't simply talk to police anymore, because you don't know the laws, and you don't know what other testimony that the police may have already been given before they come to talk to you. And since they don't have to tell you the truth, you can not even believe anything the police tell you, because it could simply be a tactic to get you to be arrested.
Consider this, the people who want offline play may want/require it due to not having good connections to the internet. It stands to reason, that those are also the same people who don't brose the forums for games that are not even out yet, and use their internet for the most essential things.
However, as we haven't been complaining about China's low prices hurting our business, shouldn't China raising the price be good for other train makers?
I don't see how this is good for any other train makers other than China. China's train maker will still undercut the price, and now will simply have one less company that it is betting against when doing so, ensuring that it undercuts the price by the least amount needed to win the contracts. The only one that wins in China in the long run when it forces all the other train manufacturers out of business and then wins the contracts by fiat as the only entity.
'During the test. the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle,' the company said in a statement. 'The WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft landed safely. Our first concern is the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time.'""
Somehow if you believed that each seat cushion, tray table, arm rest, and bathroom get sanitized with bleach for 10-20 minutes between each flight you are in fantasy land (because that is how long it takes to ensure it is killed).
And when she gets called out on that fact, she doesn't want to hear it, and disables comments so that it isn't shown what a load of crap she is spewing forth.
You will notice, that if you breakdown the ethnicity into percentages of degrees conferred, for "computer and information sciences" for 2011-2012, you will see there were 47,384 Bachelor degrees earned by students, of which 30,211 identified as "white" (63.75%), 5,410 as "black" (11.41%), 4,008 as "hispanic" (8.45%), and 4,254 as "asian" (8.97%). There are also another 2,360 "non-resident alien" listed which no ethnicity is given.
Now looking at people working at Yahoo!, 50% White (13% less than percentage earning degrees in USA in 2011-2012), 39% "asian" (30% more than percentage earning degrees), 4% hispanic (4-5% less than percentage earning degrees), 2% black (9% less than those earning degrees).
If you look at all the other companies on that list linked in the article, you will see roughly the same trend, with "whites" having about the same proportional makeup of the companies as there are those getting degrees, asians having a much higher percentage of the workforce than are getting degrees in the US (wow, not surprising since we are importing most of this labor via H1B, green card, immigration), and blacks and hispanics having slightly lower than the amount they graduate.
Now the lower amounts of blacks and hispanics may very well be simply due to location. The companies they looked at are Silicon Valley companies, with the majority of their workforce in California. California has a much lower percentage of blacks than say Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, etc... If you even slightly believe that the percentage of graduates are equally spread out across the nation's schools based on percentage of population in the schools, and that attendance in schools more closely mimics the population in the state (not always, there are historically african american shools as well women only or male only schools, and schools certain ethnicities would never even want to go to for many reasons), and take into consideration that most people will tend to stay close to home/family when searching for a job, and you will see that the breakdown of ethnicity in Silicon Valley tech companies is probably really not that out of step with the percentage of population in the labor market in Silicon Valley.
