Have you noticed that anything seen as "women's work" is devalued?
Secretaries used to be paid better before it was seen as a "woman's job" - same with teaching. Nursing is seen as "easy" compared to being a doctor, and the pay very definitely reflects that. Programming used to be a ladies job - once dudes started realizing it was important, it was reframed as a dude's thing and the pay went up.
So yeah, perceptions and stereotypes matter.
I'm not saying that "these videos shouldn't be available" - I'm saying that I, personally, don't want to watch these (which is what the thread is about).
I agree that recording the police has been an invaluable tool to wake this country up and expose injustice.
I can want to know about what's happening without needing to watch it.
Hearing "White cop kills yet another unarmed black man" is enough; I don't need to revel in the spectacle of death.
(Totally agree with your second paragraph, though).
They do give you 30 seconds of warning: https://cloud.google.com/compu...
Compute Engine performs the following steps to preempt an instance:
Compute Engine sends a preemption notice to the instance in the form of an ACPI G2 Soft Off signal.
If the instance does not stop after 30 seconds, Compute Engine sends an ACPI G3 Mechanical Off signal to the operating system.
Compute Engine transitions the instance to a TERMINATED state.
So if you're able to persist your state in less than 30 seconds, just watch for SIGTERM and you should be golden. Otherwise, checkpoint frequently.
Well, this article's about Verizon & Sprint. Maybe you'll see me yelling about banks on a thread about banks.
Total revenue from cramming: $X
Total fees: $X * 0.65
Revenue after getting caught doing an illegal thing: $X * 0.35
With penalties like these, there's not even a risk/reward calculation. If you break the law and don't get caught, you're way ahead. But if you break the law and get caught, you're still ahead. There's literally no reason *not* to be evil.
That's really great news for Liberia. Thanks are due to all of the brave Liberians who worked tirelessly to control and treat this outbreak.
Ctrl-Shift-T will reopen all previously-opened tabs after your browser crashes. (Works in Chrome; I believe in works in Firefox as well).
When it comes to climate science, there are only have two types of studies: Those with an obvious agenda, and those that show that we're cooking the earth.
He's 91 years old. I
I personally asked a few students about it in a coffee shop, none of them had any clue as to what 4/16 was, they asked me if that's a new convenience store like 7/11.
This definitely happened.
Pretend it's not *you* saying that another Pearl Harbor will happen tomorrow, but a representative of, say, the Chinese government. While visiting Hawaii. Maybe somebody in the government might want to interrogate you to prevent imminent massive loss of life.
Property? They probably caused a few hundred thousand dollars in damages; I think 9/11 clocked in at around... oh you know, maybe fifty billion. No biggie.
Life? Zero people are dead because of these riots. Wish I could say the same was true for people killed by cops. Or on 9/11.
Also, monitoring for this kind of accident is paying a lot more attention to individual customer bills and usage than I necessarily want AT&T monitoring. AT&T has already established that they cooperate extensively with monitoring US communications at NSA request, especially with the notorious "Room 641A". DO we want them collecting and acting on this kind of data?
Do I want AT&T keeping a record of the bills they've sent me? I sure damn hope they are.
"Hmm this bill is 24000% as much as their previous maximum bill, yeah there's no way this could have been auto-detected!" Your dad could code that after a week's intro to programming.
