Its not as if they cloning lab gets charged by the pound. If they've got better preserved mammoth DNA then clone that - the final size of the animal is sort of irrelevant.
No, Google designed a system that would be a compromise between security and usability since some people would obviously go bat shit if they had to enter their password every time.
If only there were some precedent for making that time adjustable - or even eliminated. Perhaps if I'm quick enough I could patent the ability for a user to adjust the settings of a device to his or her own preferences . . .
Indeed. I don't think they understand that "parenting" isn't so well defined.
My kids I do a lot of activities with. Next weekend we're going to the zoo. A few weeks ago we went to the aquarium. I read to them and tell them stories quite frequently.
However, often times they WANT to go do something by themselves. Whether that is playing in the back yard or on the iPad (or more recently the laptop - the 5 year old has gotten pretty proficient with both. She can't even read but she understands how to open the browser and type in "pbskids.org"). You simply can't be there like a hawk for every second without delving into helicopter parenting, which is just a bad idea. At a minimum I should be able to set the tablet so that it asks me for the password EVERY SINGLE TIME you make a purchase.
Its not something that I have to worry about as I generally hate microtransaction games to the point that I don't let them buy anything in them (so I never enter the password the 1st time), but I certainly can see why someone would want this.
Pretty much the same in government. My friends in the private sector get paid 30-40% more, but the benefits are worth it. I have extremely good healthcare paid 100% by my employer, 4 weeks of paid vacation per year, a pension plan that pays for life after 28 years (I can retire when I'm 51) and an extreme level of job security (in developed countries governments don't "go out of business" like private firms).
I actually had a friend straight up offer me a private sector job a few years ago at a 25% pay increase over my current one and I turned it down. The extra pay isn't worth the stress.
Newsflash: IE still has >50% market share.
Um, no. Depending on what site you're looking at it might go up or down, but nobody is ranking IE at over 50% anymore. W3 is actually reporting IE at around 20% these days:
Play stupid? I thought I answered the question adequately. If all this information is public, how the hell wouldn't they find out? Looks like cops will have to find another way of enforcing the law, which may be less effective, but that would be for the best.
Ah, you really are that dim. Is that physically painful?
If it's available to someone like me, don't you think it would also be available to the general public? What a pointless question.
You can't really be that dim, which means you're just being disingenuous in the extreme.
But I'll play along.
So in exchange for total transparency, you're willing to let gangs, child traffickers, massive scam operations, and much worse simply carry on? People we now lock up for really evil crap, based on the hard work of undercover cops
And don't play stupid. Address the issue.
I feel I have every right to know what my lovely little government thugs are doing.
Does everyone else also have that right? How about someone who is engaged in a securities scam or human trafficking? Should they be informed about the under cover officer who is working to see them put away for stealing people's money or prostituting teenage girls? How would you like that information delivered to you and to those criminals? Do you prefer an RSS feed, or perhaps a PDF emailed weekly?
despite previously saying that model aircraft use was unregulated
Their answer to that, of course, is that it's no longer "modeling" when you're flying something through the air for commercial use.
I agree that they need to follow proper rule making procedures, and get this done for real. In the meantime, it's a complete mess, and the administration is thumbing its nose at the law (from congress) that set a timetable for having this wrapped up. Deliberate foot-dragging with no consequences for anyone except all of the people looking to earn and spend money in this area. For an administration that pretends that it cares about the economy and jobs, this is just more of the same BS.
No - the current one tries to be "different". Mac OS is far more traditionally oriented than Gnome 3.
They didn't just shoot themselves in the foot with that release - they did so with almost the entire userbase screaming "Don't do it!!!!!".
Oh well. XFCE makes for a perfectly fine replacement.
Since when do gliders have props spinning at high RPMs?
Who cares? The case in question wasn't about a glider. It was about someone flying FPV under power, diving under bridges through traffic, looping the hospital helipad, etc. That's not "glider" activity. The guy used the same style craft for his stunts buzzing the Statue Of Liberty and other high profile structures with lots of people right under his area of operation, while flying outside line of site. Props, spinning. Feel free to stick your nose or a finger into that while it's flying. I wouldn't.
Your link doesn't support that. It merely talks about life living near those vents without any energy from the sun. Indeed, the presence of shrimp, crabs, etc indicate that the life indeed did start elsewhere and then slowly migrate down into those areas and adapt to them.
While the life down there doesn't need the sun to survive, without the sun the life might have never made it down there.
Both my dad and my sister are running Xubuntu without issues. My sister is ok with basic tasks on a computer but far from a technophile and my dad knows almost nothing. His only use is really for fantasy football websites.
Neither really plays games - both just do web browsing and not much else. Honestly as long as there's a Chrome icon on the desktop many people wouldn't know they were using anything different.
Keeping that on their systems keeps me from the headache of supporting Windows and all the associated spyware.
in other words they were prosecuting him for not having a licence that he couldn't possibly get
You mean, like you couldn't possibly get a permit to launch a multi-stage, liquid fueled rocket from your back yard into LEO? Well, since you can't get that permit, they would be total asshats for fining you if you did it anyway, right?
It is the point - address the recklessness
The pilot's recklessness is EXACTLY why he was fined. The administrative judge's initial ruling (it was just an initial one - this still has a long way to go, including eventually to an actual federal court if the agency wants that to happen) was that the rule making process that was used to back up the agency's policy wasn't properly followed. So the pilot wiggles out of his fine on a technicality, not because he actually deserved to avoid the fine.
