At least he's not doing it based on "The Apprentice" and Alan Sugar...
London is great if you are on a high salary and you don't have kids. I could see myself living in London forever if it weren't such a terrible place to raise kids.
Developers will be able to take their Chrome extensions or Firefox add-ons and, with “just a few changes,” bring them to Microsoft Edge. Belfiore demoed a Reddit extension originally built for Chrome, running on Microsoft Edge.
I wondered why they'd bothered, but this might explain part of it. It's been ages since MS had a real go at EEE. Embrace other browsers' extensions, extend the standards so they no longer work with the original browsers and then extinguish them. I don't think it'll work this time though.
How do you know there's no change? Is it because the "secret science" isn't actually secret?
Here's the difference between climate science and political science: Climate science publishes the results and the data, and is open to criticism. Political science goes out of its way to obfuscate or hide unfavourable data or results.
Are you by chance a political scientist?
I have found Google is now setting up Google Plus accounts for local businesses. Without their knowledge or permission. If you're a small business you had better start filling in your G+ profile, because it looks bad if the contact details are wrong or incomplete. If you have a website is irrelevant - the G+ profile appears first.
Has Google decided to create a G+ account for me?
I suspect every IT guy called Juan will quickly grow to hate this name...
I can't tell you the time I've had to waste rereading something when some author exhibits his stupidity...
Or her stupidity...
It depends on the amount of space you want to heat and how strong your roof is, but large gas bottles (200-500kg) can be bought in my neck of the woods, and there are multiple services that travel to my place to fill them. If access is an issue then multiple smaller bottles may do the trick - it all depends on how long you will be without gas.
Oh, and insulate your place. Walls, ceiling, windows, even consider the floor.
I can imagine it now - you can buy a giant dial to fit to the right hand side of the monitor to get the authentic windows watch experience. Dial 2.0 will let you fit it to the right or left side of the monitor.
The incarceration rate is declining largely because crime has fallen significantly in the past generation. In addition, many states have relaxed harsh sentencing laws passed during the tough-on-crime 1980s and 1990s, and have backed rehabilitation programs, resulting in fewer low-level offenders being locked up. States from Michigan to New Jersey have changed parole processes, leading more prisoners to leave earlier. On a federal level, the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder has pushed to reduce sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Before 2010, the U.S. prison population increased every year for 30 years, from 307,276 in 1978 to a high of 1,615,487 in 2009. “This is the beginning of the end of mass incarceration,” says Natasha Frost. "People don’t care so much about crime, and it’s less of a political focus."
Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results.
As a STEM major, I am somewhat bias towards "strong" evidence side of the argument. However, the more I read literature from other somewhat related fields i.e. psychology, economics and climate science; the more I felt that they have little opportunity in repeating experiments, similar to counterparts in traditional hard science fields. Their accepted theories are based on limited historical occurrences and consensus among the scholars. Given the situation, should we consider "consensus" as accepted scientific facts ?

In fact, "the single largest exchange between NSA and ISNU (Israeli SIGINT National Unit) is on targets in the Middle East which constitute strategic threats to US and Israeli interests," the leaked paper reveals. One of the "key priorities" of this cooperation is "the Iranian nuclear development program, followed by Syrian nuclear efforts, Lebanese Hizbullah plans and intentions, Palestinian terrorism, and Global Jihad." The paper talks about "targeting and exploiting" these. Greenwald goes on to list the occasions on which the US has been exposed as supplying arms to Israel;
the last such occasion was just before the start of the operation in Gaza, wherein a $1 billion stockpile of ammunition the US stored in Israel specifically for situations like these was used.
