Having a job is one thing. Having a job and thinking it'll be there for a year or two is another. Everyone was financially "turtling up" so it's not a real surprise that indicators like traffic will lag behind. I was talking to a trade school instructor who said that businesses are STILL cutting back on good will perks like donations of equipment and time to students. Even the silly little fun trinkets they used to hand out at intramural competitions are gone.
There's strong evidence African sailors found South America as well. But, if your culture doesn't have a good record recording your discovery, you don't get to name it.
Probably not a survivable fall and others are talking about their failings better than me. I'm not much of a hobbyist, but I had a few fun little projects I've worked on and gone in there maybe 10 times in the last couple years. They seem to have taken the homogenized tech shop approach of selling what everyone else makes money off of. I waited in line for about 5 minutes for a couple signing up for cell service once and the the huge electronics components sections I remember from 20 years ago was now 2 short aisles; the rest of the stuff was toys, gadgets, and batteries you can get literally anywhere.
This happens to a lot of industries; including TV channels. One exec sees someone pulling 20% returns on X and decides to incorporate that into their business model while dropping product Y. After a while, they do it so much they just lose their identity.
But, it's currency since the bitcoin itself has no intrinsic value and only represents value based on faith. And, where your analogy fails is "paper" currency banks are regulated and deposits are insured. Someone robbing my bank wouldn't affect my account balance in the slightest; nor would the banker get away with a EULA that said "we're not responsible for your money."
It came equipped with an abacus?
Every in-car nav system I've looked at has terrible reviews; even the dealership told me not to sweat going for the GPS option in my new car. I've got this big fancy LCD and a fancy audio system and a cell phone, but no one to tie them together.
Solitary slowly drives these guys insane. It doesn't seem to be permanent, but being cooped up like that does terrible things to the human brain. IMO this all started decades ago with a regression to "get tough on crime" practices. So, now rather than giving prisoners true outlets to reform themselves and develop talents and options for their release, we've got guys with nothing to do and nothing to lose who know that their best bet post-incarceration is getting better at being a criminal. And, gang violence and activity is a great way to get promoted.
Kids are going to practice "hacker" methodology plenty enough. Schools should stick to teaching fundamentals that they won't bother learning on their own. Besides, they need exposure ot the disciplinarian side of programming as well. Hopefully, enough will sink in so that when they get their first jobs they'll be somewhat prepared for the shift.
The point is they can arrest occupants for ANY kind of suspicious activity, then turn around and come back for another consent attempt. What the first person was arrested for is irrelevant. As the Brad Cooper videos show, you shouldn't even open the door at all since a cop can claim to see or smell something that gives him reasonable suspicion.
There has to be a level playing field. Payouts for advancement are a slippery slope. Battlefield 4 has premium double XP days as well as all the additional perks and upgrades they get. Nothing turns away fans more then seeing some guy twinked with "free market" loot.
Raising how much you pay is a great way to get people who want to work for you.
I was in AFROTC back in the early 90s and the AF has been trying to kill the A-10 for decades. There are a couple reasons; and none of them have to do with effectiveness. First, the guys in charge of the AF are usually fighter jocks who bubble up from the shiny, fast, expensive fighters. The Air Force loves flash. Back around '92 or so, they wanted to replace A-10s with the shiny fast F-16 that got it's ass kicked in Gulf War I trying to fly A-10 missions. But, hey F-16s are shiny, fast, and guaranteed to get a pilot laid with hot young nursing students. A-10s get you the girl who adopts the really ugly puppy out of sympathy.
Second, the A-10 wasn't built by a major vendor with wads of bribe money throw at Pentagon staffers. There's a ton of pressure to dump A-10s for something else shiny and fast. Frankly, I'm surprised it lasted this long which is a testament to how great a plane it's been over the years. So, we'll get an insanely overpriced and probably under-qualified F-35 trying to fly A-10 missions. Hopefully, they'll keep enough of them mothballed so that in the next engagement we can roll out 20-30 or so for a last hurray.
Dan Akroyd is the all-time winner of the Landing a Woman Way Out of your Class geek Olympics. I in good faith cannot criticize him or anything he has ever done.
You realize a hell of a lot of them were drafted, right?
Google fiber is only in a few places in the city. I'm nowhere near a coverage area, nor would I ever trust Google with my internet pipe.
