They say, "we proved it."
That's the key difference.
Fighting increases to the minimum wage. A higher minimum wage would increase wages for both the people at the low end and those immediately above the low end. Republicans don't like that.
I don't claim to know what Republicans 'like,' but the main argument I've seen opposing minimum wage increase is that it also increases unemployment. You don't seem to be very in touch with reality, though.

lol I love it; used to be everyone thought the CIA was doing things, now it's the NSA. The conspiracy theory has evolved.
That engine is an enabler. Methane/oxygen works incredibly well in gas-gas cycle. It's unbeatable for that.
One thing I didn't understand from the article, and maybe I just missed it; why haven't other people tried the methane/oxygen yet, if it's so good?
(in this case that humans can live for long periods beyond everything that we take for granted on Earth).
Are you sure that's delusional? Incredibly difficult, sure I'll grant you that. Not going to happen this decade, certainly. We'd need at least two successful Biosphere2 experiments before that will happen, and that's going to take a long time to test.
But completely delusional, would you really go that far? Because to me it seems like something possible, at least. Especially if you can get regular shipments from earth for a while.
Article is technically dense but
But?? No but, that's actually what we want here on Slashdot!
he does seem to follow through on his promises!
I wouldn't go that far.
Law doesn't say it has to be hidden or clandestine...the jury exists only to determine guilt based on the law.
Maybe you should read the actual law before pre-empting what the judge might say, it clearly includes the words "intent", "secrecy" and "privacy" in the following excerpt - "[Thou shall not photograph people's wobbly bits] with the intent to secretly conduct or hide such activity, when the other person in such place and circumstance would have a reasonable expectation of privacy in not being so photographed".
So the prosecutor needs a bit more than just the video, he has to demonstrate the defendant intended to film the victim's "private parts", was attempting to conceal his true intent, and that the victim had an expectation of privacy. A naked toddler running around on a public beach clearly does not have an expectation of privacy and it would be very difficult to demonstrate secrecy and intent in such a scenario (assuming the defence lawyer is not in a coma). Why the chief prosecutor would bring such a case before the judge will also be questioned by any judge who (in your own words) is just interested in what "the law states". OTOH making upskirt videos of strangers with a hidden camera in your shoe is now clearly illegal.
As a non-American the jury nullification thing doesn't apply to me, nor do I have to suffer elected judges who don't have a clue what they are doing. However the concept of jury nullification is interesting, a majority vote by a jury that the law is unjust should at least delay a verdict until the legislators have publically reviewed both the case and the law. With such a system (US*) public prosecutors may become less keen to use bogus charges as bargaining chips to score a "confession" on a less "scary" charge.

Every single survey I've seen in the last 3 years has had Java and web languages like PHP on top
Then you haven't looked very hard. Hint.
And that wasn't enough to convict beyond a reasonable doubt.
And yet a guy in Texas was recently executed on nothing more than the testimony of a couple of people simply because the governor wanted to be president and saw an opportunity to prove he was "tough on crime". Of course he was nowhere near as rich and famous as OJ. With such inconsistent outcomes I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would support capital punishment
Well, the jobs numbers don't lie. The most in demand language is Java.
What jobs numbers. Link to them, show me. Prove that you can back yourself up. Show me I'm wrong if you think I am.
That will make your conversation so much more intelligent and twice as interesting.
