Yes, please, you go first.
Well, Bigfoot does seem pretty unlikely at this point, but what about Yeti? Some form of undocumented mountain ape that lives in the Himalayas seems totally plausible to me. It's not like people are going through leisurely jaunts up the Himalayas with their camera phones.
My rule of thumb is, if it were a real source of free energy, I would be hearing about it on the news, not Kickstarter. It's just like with Viagra back in the day. For a thousand years people were advertising dick pills. But when a legit one was invented, it was all anybody on TV talked about for a year.
They addressed this in the video. Their approach is to greatly decrease the weight of the exoskeleton. That reduces power requirements. They show an elbow pad that's so light that the presenter can easily hold it in one hand (although I'm assuming the battery isn't attached).
I hate to disagree with Wharton (look up his work, the man is a champion) but the Android emulator has already been fixed with HAXM. It's been released into the SDK Manager and only requires copying a file to turn on. Once it's on, the emulator runs at totally acceptable speeds, and provides a much richer environment than a simulator would.
This is also a great way to get their application featured in college courses. And if people learn how to do 3d animation in RenderMan first, they are going to more inclined to use it on future projects.
I've never made the transition myself, but I've seen others do it. You need a new profession that works closely with your current one, so you can be "The guy who knows how to talk to the techies". There are quite a few roles that can act as the buffer between management/customers and IT. It depends on where you currently work, but I've seen people do this with both Project Management and Business Analysis. If your boss is open to the idea of you filling one of these roles on a few projects, you can get the experience you need while still performing your current job.
Specifically, they were measuring cynicism using the Cook-Medley scale, which defines cynical distrust as "A generally negative view of humankind, depicting others as unworthy, deceitful, and selfish"
"Oh, and they probably won't use sentinels to track down the dangerous unvaccinated folks."
*sigh* If only....
I'm very curious as to why they are using a neural network for this. I'm no machine learning expert, but I was under the impression that neural networks were somewhat outdated. And yet it seems like Google is spending rather a lot of time with them lately.
The Home View idea could be nice for the real estate industry.
An 18+ certificate almost implies a promise of immaturity at this point. 18+ games always have the sort of ridiculous violence and awkward nudity that primarily appeal to 18- gamers.
The article is vague, but it sounds like they've reduced the radioactivity by growing it without potassium. Unfortunately, potassium is a very important nutrient, and most people are not meeting their recommended daily intake of it.
At least it's rich nerdy assholes instead of the usual oil barons. That's progress... sort of.
