You need to be modded up, good sir or madame.
In fact it's the opposite problem: spent fuel pools were ok, but the folks at Fukushima didn't know it and wasted a lot of time and man power trying to correct a non-existent problem. But your point is still good. Without cooling even the spent fuel pool will boil away after awhile (days? weeks?) and the bare fuel could melt down.
Where did you go that theory *wasn't* part of your core?
Also worth noting is that the reason that we teach so much programming is because that's the job associated with the degree. If you don't plan on programming with your degree in computer science, then you'd probably better plan on some graduate school. I suppose you could treat it as an, "I just needed a degree" subject, but it's a lot of work if all you're after is the ability to say that you finished your BS.
Wow, that's a lot. I wonder why they allow so much power per outlet?
Because of all those damn industrial vaccuum cleaners.
Let's not forget about the increase in terrorism and drug smuggling that's sure to follow the invention of star trek transporters. We really should be thinking and planning for this problem while there's still time.
Uranium reserves are so big that there's no need even for breeder reactor for centuries. We have lots of time to work on this. There's also thorium in the meanwhile.
Min/maxing is half the fun of D&D. The challenge is to create a game that is fun with unbalanced characters. Other systems have succeeded in that.
According to the gov, 33% total efficiency for coal. I don't know what part of that is turbine efficiency. Only natural gas is significantly better.
I'm fluent in C. I understand C statics fine. What gets me is their interaction with classes and instances and...
I'm not complaining about templates mainly because I'm keeping my fingers the hell out of them!
One function of special vocabulary is for specialists to easily communicate. But another, important, social function is as a badge of in-group membership. If you use the words correctly (from the point of view of the group) you show that you belong, and that you probably know and understand all the other explicit and implicit rules of the group. If the word use spreads too far it loses this function and the group needs to find new words and expressions instead.
You dislike "gelling". You dislike "paradigm shifts". It would probably be a fairly risk-free bet on what you think of expressions like "optics" (as in "the optics of this decision is good") and the like. You dislike these words and refuse to use them. Which signals to management people that you are not management and should not be treated as part of their in-group. "gelling" works exactly as intended, in other words.
Asking for words to not be used like this is futile. It would be like asking people to no longer care about fashion (another in-group signal) or to not form groups of like-minded people at all.
If you're too stupid to realize that nobody 100% separates fantasy from reality, then you have the typical intelligence of a slashdotter.
It's not? Interviews aren't supposed to be full of nothing but softball questions.
Only in the sense that it would take too long and they aren't required to know assembly.
Not many other countries intentionally bankrupt accident victims the way the US does.
I don't live in the US, and I agree. But, if you're found liable for an accident you will tend to pay a lot of money in any country; the accident victims likely have life or accident insurance and their insurance company will want to get reimbursed.
So good, comprehensive accident insurance is a very good idea no matter where you live. Usually we have that as part of our home insurance or other thing like that, and if you own a car you have mandatory insurance for that.
But in a case like this you may well be completely uncovered. The vehicle insurance is likely not valid for commercial traffic, and your home insurance may well not be valid either. As I said, I would never, ever get into a car like this without first being absolutely sure that the liability situation is crystal clear.
