You mean everything: Doesn't have good coverage in the small town I'm in? Or, the batteries don't last long enough? Or gets roaming charges when in the wrong place?
Yeah... Big win...
This not only discusses it, but has a link to the actual Phys Rev Letters paper. Jester (the blogger) thinks it may be a more mundane explanation, but still an interesting one.
"like lions and tigers keep their prey genetically healthy by picking off the bad ones, but you got a drug that keeps them away"
I don't think ZMapp is a very good lion or tiger repellant.
That's a very old technology that I just can't seem to give up.
Steak tartare just doesn't sit well with my tummy, and a glass full of raw eggs for breakfast is right out, regardless of what Rocky thought.
And don't even get me started about raw potatos.
(Clue: Technology is not just electronics.)
Matloff, who has a foot in both the Statistics and CS camps, but says, "The problem is not that CS people are doing Statistics, but rather that they are doing it poorly. Generally the quality of CS work in Stat is weak. It is not a problem of quality of the researchers themselves; indeed, many of them are very highly talented. Instead, there are a number of systemic reasons for this, structural problems with the CS research 'business model'." So, can Statistics be made more attractive to students? "Here is something that actually can be fixed reasonably simply," suggests no-fan-of-TI-83-pocket-calculators-as-a-computational-vehicle Matloff. "If I had my druthers, I would simply ban AP Stat, and actually, I am one of those people who would do away with the entire AP program. Obviously, there are too many deeply entrenched interests for this to happen, but one thing that can be done for AP Stat is to switch its computational vehicle to R."
No. There is another.

In response to shelling from South Ossetia which you somehow don't think of as a violation (of an agreement that only Russia recognized). The history behind that war is long, and each side can come up with justifications.
By your logic, the current war in Gaza wouldn't be considered aggressive because Israel was responding to rocket fire.
It's all aggressive. Your logic seems to be "My guys are good, so they are beyond criticism." Horse hockey.
"you'd be rotting in a cell for 25 years."
Mostly because the legal system is so slow it'd take that long to even get to trial.
As an Indian I know joked: "The British gave us stifling bureaucracy, but we PERFECTED it!"
Sounds like you don't just have memory troubles, but factual troubles as well.
Russia is indeed a major player in BRICS, but the Chinese economy is fully 4 times as large. Even Brazil's GDP is greater.
Now, how a dust up in the Ukraine will sink an economic union that the rest of outweighs Russia by 6 to 1 in GDP is beyond me. The Brazillians, Chinese, and Indians are not being heavily impacted by this.
Start learning some history. This is about the fact on the ground that it's extremely difficult to defend Western Russia without having at least a neutral Ukraine. It's just not far enough from Europe to Moscow. The military in Russia has a long memory, and it includes Napoleon and Nazi Germany invading. The Russian high command knows that the defense in depth and the long cold winter retreat in both cases was what let them win. Without the Ukraine they get very nervous.
This conspiracy theory that it's all to undermine BRICS at the behest of the Rothschilds or some other bogeyman/illuminati is laughable.
"The last time the Russians got this aggressive was their invasion of Afghanistan under Jimmy Carter"
I think you're forgetting that they invaded Georgia when George W. Bush was president.
I think that counts as pretty aggressive.
