That's the thing though, Methane is pretty short lived. To me that makes it low priority since we can "fix" it by slaughtering all the cows later when things get really bad from all the CO2 being released from Coal Power stations. Something which stays in the atmosphere for a long time like CO2 is the high priority since the longer we take to lower our emissions the longer we are pumping huge quantities of it into the atmosphere which takes a long long time to go away. Methane is in equilibrium with its sources since the lifetime is so short, so if we lower the emissions we will lower its concentration within a few years. Methane isn't the highest priority.
What are you talking about, they didn't steal anything. They just pressed "refresh" on the PayPay website a few thousands times a second to make the website unresponsive.
This makes perfect sense. If an angry mob smashes up some shops fronts, but police only catch 14 people you wouldn't charge them with the total damage of the entire mob, as well as the cost of upgrading security to protect against an angry mob in the future. You would charge each individual according to the damage they actually did. In this case a single person using LOIC doesn't really do any significant damage at all. You could charge them a 1/1000 of the cost of overtime for personal to deal with the attack, and the extra bandwidth they caused the company, but its madness to hold them responsible for the damage done by the entire swarm. In a cynical POV, this is also an excellent way for PayPall to remove themselves as a target when the PayPal14 are found guility.
I've had LCD displays crash "on" on my Android and the only way to turn it off was to remove the battery physically. Some phones have non-removable batteries making this an existing problem.
I've been asking for one of these for years. Battery drain on a LCD screen is too high for a phone, eink makes a much better screen.
As a one-off payment to kickstart better healthcare, which results in better health of workers and then more output, so you can spend more on healthcare...etc.
In the EU there are laws keeping roaming charges down. Often they are less than the cost to use your own phone in your own country!
I agree, why don't people report bitcoins as stolen property. Then if anyone else tries to spend them they can be flagged as stolen and a court order made to force the current holder to turn them over to the legal owner, or pay damages if they refuse. Bitcoins are far more traceable than gold. If mining pools refused to add stolen bitcoins to blocks unless the transaction fee was >1BTC it would become infeasible to hide them by splitting them into many small transactions.
Did anyone else notice the graph showing the women in the contest outperformed their male counterparts? Women were substantially better at the live call portion of the exercise, but also better during the pre-call information gathering phase.
Use KNIME and you can probably do 90% of what you want by dragging and dropping a new nodes and joining them up. KNIME does all the complicated memory caching for large filesets for you, and you can write your own Java functions to plug into it if you need something special.
Well what I meant was if you wanted to know who was behind it, you could make a shell company who then illegally re-license TrueCrypt and wait to get sued. What could possible go wrong??
Well they would have to come forward to launch legal proceedings, wouldn't they?
Another factor is the experimental costs don't include the computation costs of assembling the sequences afterwards. At the moment this is probably comparable to the experimental costs for hardware, electricity and paying someone competent to do it. (Turning a few Terabytes of ~100base pair reads into one whole 400 megabase genome isn't trivial.)
"Electromagnetic formation flight (EMFF) gets around this propellant problem by turning the satellites in a formation into electromagnets. By using a combination of magnets and reaction wheels, spacecraft in formation can move and change their attitude and even spin without propellant. Satellites can change their polarity to attract or repel one another, turn, or shift their relative positions in any manner that doesn't require changing the center of gravity for the entire formation." So its all about formation flying, the satellites will pull/push off each other to remain in the correct formation. They will still needs propellent to move the whole cluster, but they can stay in formation without using any fuel.
Well it depends on the cancer, I don't know about for Ovarian in particular, but for prostate you often find cancerous tissue, but it is so slow growing it wouldn't be a threat unless you lived to be over 100, and as such the side effects of treatment are much worse than the cancer would have been. These sorts of slow growing non-threatening cancers wouldn't ever produce symptoms, and so wouldn't be diagnosed without a screening programme.
