This isn't science, but scientists way of playing politics.
Yes, alarmist, fear-mongering, add in a few facts, some blaming. Still blaming the all mighty Nuke but adding another point, climate change, to their soapbox.
But yes, I also agree with your implied sentiment that using a clock where we are at 99.79% at the end when at most we got as low as 98.75% with USA and Soviet signing Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, and the Soviet Union dissolves.(and that was after the Fall of the Berlin Wall) IMHO the clock should have been set back hours for each of those, not minutes.
I agree, darkmail makes it sound bad at the start.
But I would go a step further, call it SMTPv2 (if changes to SMTP) or Mail 2.0, or webmail 2.0. A name that has no scariness in it. (other than playing off of web 2.0 crap) It will just sound like the logical next step and doesn't imply anything that the media can take as bad.
Maybe you have a chance to man handle a 6'2" 250lb man who's spent 5 of the last 10 years in jail working out, but my wife will use a gun to keep her and kids safe.
You say that there are situations where other self defense should be used rather than a gun, implying that some other thing can stop them, and that you would get other chances. If your or ones you care about are under serious physical threat, then you do what you have to. The best way is to avoid situations like the yelling matches (please see "More Guns, Less Crime" for data on people who CCW are involved with less crime). But when they don't give you a choice, I hope you got a good plan B on your hip.
My wife vs the above man has a better chance when they are both armed, than both not. (50% both armed Guns are the great equalizer. Oh and my wife is a better shot than I am.
I care not about the attacker when it comes to keeping my wife and kids safe. Male/female, 16 or 46, the outcome of the attacker is forfeit. Only after I insure safety of mine, will I consider the safety of the bad guy.
The right to bear arms is the right to carry. Now please stop turning us into victims.
I completely agree. The vast majority of people who decide to carry legally are more even headed and are involved in a lot less crime than those who don't. See the book "More guns, Less crime" for data, it also shows pretty good correlation that more guns means less crime and safer streets.
Because we are the type of person who want to be prepared for bad things, we are also the type to avoid bad things. Getting into a shoving match is the result of more than one bad choice.
Nearly half of the conceal class I took was more or less teaching how screwed you are in shooting someone, even if self defense.(see Zimmerman)
However, leaving or running away isn't always an option, when you have family who depend on you to keep them safe.
Because installing solar panels, the panels themselves is only a small part. And much of the penels price is made up by things like shipping.
So if installation of solar panels cost 19k for 3% vs 20k for 9%, which one is the better choice?
Nearly every advancement of civil rights came from people breaking laws.
That is quite profound, and true!
If they don't have evidence when they arrested you, why did they arrest you?
It becomes just another way of fishing. And another way for the gov to rule the people.
Here in Utah, Susan Powel disappeared w/o any trace . . .
Nina Reiser disappeared with almost no traces
at least 1 of those Cleveland women found was an adult with next to no traces of foul play
People don't just disappear with out a reason.
The cops are doing this because its a lot of work that shows little results. IE, they feel it's a waste of time.
There is only on kind of soap that works, the one that ALL the doctors are using, the plain, simple, normal SOAP. No artificial ingredients, no strawberry scent (who wanna to eat soap!!!) nothing.
While most medical staff do indeed use plain soap, surgeons at least, are required to use antibacterial soap.
I thought surgeons scrubbed with iodine.
Yea but you get a free dishwasher, and clothes washer too.
Still using the old dishwasher, clothes washer, and sandwich-maker as before with only the cost of most of my income and diamond ring. . . .
Not that I doubt you, but I never heard of this, who was this? how long ago?
The multiple smaller masses energy dissipates faster in our atmosphere.
Not to mention in asteroid, as it enters our atmosphere, there is more surface area, thus more of its mass gets burned up before impact, if impact even occurs.
Williams recreates a ShadowStats Alternative unemployment rate reflecting methodology that includes the “long-term discouraged workers” that the Bureau of Labor Statistics removed in 1994 under the Clinton administration.
The BLS publishes six levels of unemployment, but only the headline U3 unemployment rate gets the press. The headline number does not count “discouraged” unemployed workers who have not looked for work in the past four weeks because they believe no jobs are available.
Now, you may think that our gravity should be keeping the moons core hot, but the moon is locked, the same side if facing us, so no friction.
So, in theory, if we gave mars a large stable satellite, we could heat things up inside.
