This could be any of us. We have no choice but to entrust companies with our intimate conversations: on email, on Facebook, by text and so on. We have no choice but to entrust the retailers that we use with our financial details. And we have little choice but to use cloud services such as iCloud and Google Docs.
Bullshit. There's always a choice. It's often less convenient, but that's a far cry from not having one.
It looked like a middling movie, but now it's the most talked about picture of the year. I bet they'll clean up on DVD sales.
Except that Sony has claimed they will not distribute it in any form.
On a dedicated path it is very slow, but with a dozen traffic lights to obey you can easily lose 15-20 minutes waiting at intersection.
But from what I've seen only 1 in 10 bicyclists in the city pays any attention to the traffic signals anyway, so does it really count?
These days, I write only for myself. But everyone I do a reading for says "Boy, that's interesting! Why don't you publish?". Then I explain.
There are so many alternative ways to publish today that you shouldn't let this stop you. Get your work out there and let the readers decide!
How do you write dialog, for example, between beings with digital RF implants instead of speech?
That one's easy. Everyone knows that you use italics!
I am glad you posted that. I am putting together a little project I call Distributed Integrated Scalable Array Database, DISArray. It will be a shardable web scale instantly consistent DB engine which will have kick ass performance and a Heisenberg query engine support by a look ahead design I have code named "Schroedinger".
This is going into my next system proposal to management.
But...but...where will we get future cops and politicians from, if there are no more government-indoctrinated violent and aggressive brain-damaged.individuals being turned out by schools?
The kids who were given the choice of jail or the marines are a likely source.
While soccer (football to the rest of the world) probably has less of a problem, it is still a potentially serious issue. Better suggest golf next time. Or Dungeon and Dragons.
You've obviously never seen me try to golf then. The only safe place is the middle of the fairway.
I just don't see why our elected officials should assist them at our expense.
Because reelection campaigns cost a lot of money these days.
Nope. Common carriers can be held repsonsible for turning a blind eye to illegal traffic.
Indictment != Conviction
Indeed - the page actually mentions the rhythm method, the Catholic's favoured method.
Someone please help me understand. How is the rhythm method not a form of contraception and as such just as much a sin as any other method of contraception?
We let people determine what can be taught. Very few people are free of ideologies, whether they be religious or secular. Find me a living, breathing human being who has no personal biases, and I'll ask the doctors why a patient with absolutely no higher brain function hasn't been taken off life support.
One of the things that we, as conscious human beings, should do is strive to recognize the lenses through which we view reality. Yes, everyone has personal biases but it is possible to understand those biases, examine decisions that you are making and recognize their influence on your decision making process. This allows us to make more objective decisions. If someone is not able to do this then IMHO they should not be in a position to make decisions that have significant influence over other people, such as judges or educators.
The funny thing is that I bet the actual religious authority of the Roman Catholic Church wouldn't agree with this sort of censorship.
Given the church's history of censoring other viewpoints in the past, I'm going to respectfully disagree with you.
So according to the schoolboard, contraception == abortion.
The page in question also contains a reference to a "morning after" pill which would be considered abortion. That was used as the justification, but according to the article the whole page on contraception offended the school board member.
