If you're assaulted by the police, they'll most likely charge you with assault.
I think we should move to bladerunner type crossings..
DON'T WALK. DON'T WALK. DON'T WALK. DON'T WALK. CROSS NOW. CROSS NOW. CROSS NOW.
It'll be just like living in the future, without quite so much smog.
Spy who loved me: 126 minutes x 60 sec/min x27 mb/sec / 8 bits/byte = 25.5 gigs for video
bluray files are huge. Some of that is profligacy.
Some of the companies leading the industry in annual clean energy savings include UPS ($200M), Cisco ($151M), PepsiCo ($121M) and United Continental ($104M).
UPS: 55.4 billion
Cisco: 48.6 billion
PepsiCo: 66.4 billion
United Continental: 38.3 billion
United Continental only posted 571 million in profits last year, so yes, those savings definitely helped.
The others? Cisco: 9.9 billion; PepsiCo: $6.7 billion, UPS: $4.3 billion-- the savings reported are akin to rounding errors. It's not all that persuasive.
As Lawrence Lessig mused "code is law". We don't need governments to try in substitute their feckless ancient law for our code. Imagine-- millions liberated by the promise of technology to start building their societies on Python, Perl, Malbolge and other industry standard codebases instead of leaving those sorts of decisions to outmoded, inefficient, and frankly just embarrassing artifacts of the so called democratic revolution. We live in the 21st century, people, and it's time we stopped paying homage to 18th century political philosophers and their devotion to the clockwork universe.
Not if it interferes with the mission critical aspects of the network, such as the ISP's video on demand products.
I guess what the ACLU got their panties in a bunch about is that the organization also acts as a central point of contact for SWAT training/ purchases in the region.
So... a group of police, are setting their training calendars together so they can have a training session with more people at one time so they can save money on instructor costs. And they are buying stuff in bulk to reduce their costs.
You seem very intent on minimizing NEMLEC's role. Perhaps you are under the impression that the council is a mere social club organizing get togethers, banquets, golf outings, and dinner dances for men with guns.
The ACLMU's complaint suggests that this is not the case.
46. For example, NEMLEC has purchased or otherwise acquired a Lenco BearCat, an armored personnel carrier that is designed for military or law enforcement use. See https://twitter.com/NEMLEC/sta... & https://twitter.com/NEMLEC/sta... (Exhibit M).
But if you are correct, and NEMLEC is simply brokering fleet purchases of armored vehicles, enabling the smaller police departments to militarize just as quickly as the Boston Police Department, but with the added savings of buying in bulk, we have nothing to worry about.
To really run crysis well, you'd probably need something like the GeForce GTX Titan-- which has 896 double precision cores. However, if you raytrace the graphics, you might be able to run it on a 72 core Knights Landing chip.
You were the one who brought up kinetic energy-- rifle vs carbine is quite relevant.
M14: 850 m/s, 10 g bullet= 3.6 kJ
M16: 948 m/s, 4g bullet =1.8 kJ
M4: 880 m/s, 4 g bullet= 1.5 kJ
t. Diode laser powered weapons are now up to 10KW (big array of 10W or so diodes), and can shoot down small rockets and artillery shells in demos. Current thinking is that, at 50KW-100KW, they'll be militarily useful.
For reference, a standard round from an M4 rifle has about 1.5-1.65kW of kinetic energy upon leaving the barrel.
And the army already uses the M4 for shooting down small rockets and artillery shells?
(The M4 is not a rifle. It's a carbine. If you want a rifle,the M16 is readily available.)
Tell me, is the place in the center, between left and right wing, better or worse than the place that is furthest from the left wing? Do you aim to oppose, do you aim to unite, or do you aim to transcend? How you construct your left wing depends on your answers.
, at which point all the elements of the treaty will be public and heavily debated down to the last comma.
unless the treaty is subject to the fast track negotiating authority. Furthermore, it is is quite difficult to negotiate a treaty if if it is known that that ratifying bodies plan to make substantive changes after the conclusion of negotiations.
Better to debate before the treaty is signed-- and that cannot happen unless the negotiations are transparent.
There's the standard model of particle physics.
and then there's the standard model of cosmology. They are rather different-- and while one may inform the other, they the validity of one does not say much about the validity of the other.
Hacker: Who else is in this department?
Sir Humphrey: Well briefly, sir, I am the Permanent Under Secretary of State, known as the Permanent Secretary. Woolley here is your Principal Private Secretary. I too have a Principal Private Secretary and he is the Principal Private Secretary to the Permanent Secretary. Directly responsible to me are ten Deputy Secretaries, 87 Under Secretaries and 219 Assistant Secretaries. Directly responsible to the Principal Private Secretaries are plain Private Secretaries, and the Prime Minister will be appointing two Parliamentary Under-Secretaries and you will be appointing your own Parliamentary Private Secretary.
Hacker: Can they all type?
Sir Humphrey: None of us can type. Mrs Mackay types: she's the secretary.
Hmm-- crop factor for a 2/3 inch sensor is 3.6, so a 35mm lens on a 2/3 would roughly be equivalent to 125 mm-- short telephoto, good for headshots from say 6-7 feet away.
Using Depth of Field Master
an f/2/ 125mm lens, at 6 ft, has a depth of field of 0.08 ft. (Canon5D Mark III)
an f/2 35 mm, lens, at 6 ft has a depth of field of 0.28 ft (Fujifilm X10, though it's actually limited to 28mm @ f/2.8)
So if you want razor thin depth of field, best go with full frame or larger, assuming that the lenses are available-- 200 mm f2 lens can be had, but they are rather expensive.
