This plan is literally to hold industry accountable via regulations, rather than throwing public money at the problem. Do you just cut and paste this reply into any vaguely political thread?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
nothing mysterious - there is no conspiracy here. Economists moved to "core inflation" because things like energy and food are extremely volatile. Inflation should refer to sticky prices, ie things that tend to resist going down again once they go up (or vice versa). Wages are extremely sticky, then things like cars and houses.
Wages are currently flat or even decreasing, while housing prices have clearly decreased. Car prices are pretty flat. There is no significant inflation going on here.
the government doesn't lie about the inflation rate. It is caculated by a multitude of different organizations, both private and public. The reason prices haven't risen despite a 300% rise in monetary base is that we're stuck in a liquidity trap. A bit of inflation would actually be a good thing, because the current malaise is a result of debt (both private and public), and inflation lowers the value of said debt, prompting people and corporations to spend again.
implying that Krugman advocates war or tragedy either illustrates profound stupidity or an intentional misinterpretation of the concepts he was trying to illustrate. Maybe you've been mislabeled a troll simply because your posts are unbelievably naive?
obvious troll is trolling
I am. Inheritence is bullshit. It just perpetuates a lazy aristocracy. I've told my parents to die broke, and I will do the same.
that's my thought... Christopher could have lent all sorts of help on the first 3 flicks, but instead he just spent his time trying to derail them. Copyright should expire on or shortly after the artist's death. Intellectual property inheritence is even bigger bullshit than intellectual property patents.
So you don't appreciate the social aspects of an MMO. Why exactly are games not an appropriate place for socializing? Clearly you appreciate the social aspects of slashdot.
For a populational average, BMI is a valid indicator of body fat percentage because the edge cases should cancel out. For individuals it is not.
They could do a study specifically on body builders though, and compare the results with this study.
*sigh* BMI is not "broken". It just measures something other than what you are personally interested in. For a populational average, it is an excellent and accurage measure of relative weight. This study examined mortality in slightly overWEIGHT people. These people will however on average also be over-fat (edge cases cancelling eachother out), so the results are applicable.
Exactly. BMI is a perfectly acceptable measure for the purposes of this study. On average, persons with a large BMI are "overweight" (have a high body fat percentage). There are always edge cases (bodybuilders, weaklings) but the result is valid and useful information: Those with a BMI between 25 and 30 live longer.
Those afformentioned body builders and weaklings may want additional research into specifically body fat percentage and mortality rates. This study was only interested in relative weight.
references please. I'd love it if such a study really existed.
You'd have to knock me out with a schedule II substance in order to drag me to a journey concert.
I'm not sure why this is flamebait... it is well known that THC reduces your response time. If/when I have driven stoned, i've been real careful, but once I tried to turn into a bus stop which I thought was a driveway.
I don't think legalizing will make the problem worse, however, and I don't think it is nearly the issue that alcohol is.
technically devices don't reserve memory, they reserve memory addresses. There are 2^32 addresses in a 32-bit system, which equates to 4GB. Video RAM will take up address space too, so if you have 4GB of RAM in your system some of it will not be addressable. It isn't in USE per se, its just off the map.
That's why moving to 64-bit Windows shows all 4GB.
