Oh good grief. 15 years after the DotCon implosion, when industry leaders and Congress responded to the collapse in tech employment by ramping up H-1b guest worker visas, we're supposed to believe this is news?
We've been doing renewables and efficiency for almost 50 years. How much longer till we can reach that goal?
Yes, i said it. We are close to the limits of renewables and efficiency. Unless there is a major discovery, we will only see minor improvements that will likely be outpaced by population growth and lifestyle improvements with poorer people. I think progress will outpace the efforts.
...Cameron can best be described as a right pratt...
And Farage as a far right pratt
too bad hangouts is a piece of shit. fuck google.
Nut then so was google talk. It seems like a like-for-like replacement
The grand jury found no reason to even send this to trial. Cut and dry case of justifiable self defense. END of story.
I agree that there is no criminal case, but it should not be the end of story. I have a feeling that though no crime was committed the police should expect a higher standard from officers and I would hope an internal investigation followed by either disciplinary action or training as appropriate will now follow.
Their web design looks absolutely gorgeous, but it's inefficient and not remotely fit for purpose.
... introducing the Apple iCar.
OK, just for you, Here's What Your Cat Could Look Like In 2030.
They likely waited to both allow the police to set up and for the weather to degrade a bit hoping less protesters would suffer the elements.
Of course i'm wondering why this is even on slashdot.
"I think that 100 years from now, 500 years from now, people will look back on this as the initial baby steps that we took going into the solar system," Virts told a pre-launch press conference. "In the same way that we look back on Columbus and the other explorers 500 years ago, this is the way people will look at this time in history."
More like the first time someone took a dugout log out to sea, paddled around within sight of shore, then came back again.
True, but there are those who love horses as well, yet now most people rarely even see a live horse, let alone own one.
You mist live in a city. Horse riders are very common where I live, though fortunately mostly they avoid the rush hour.
First article says: Apple supplier Corning on Thursday introduced its next-generation Gorilla Glass, which it said is two times tougher than any competitive cover glass now in the market.
Second article says: Apple supplier Corning on Thursday introduced next-generation Gorilla Glass, which it said is ten times tougher than any competitive cover glass now in the market.
These are not contradictory. "Up to two times" just means "not more than two times", and similarly "up to ten times" just means "not more than ten times". This means that if it is not more than two times then it is automatically not more than ten times
Its like if I say "there are no men in the room who are over six feet tall" you could also say "there are no men in the room who are over 100 feet tall", obviously true given the first statement but rather pointless. Of course marketing people might prefer "up to ten times as strong" even if it is only twice as strong as the best competitor
"UP TO two times tougher than competitive glass" "survives drops UP TO 80 percent of the time"
Just meaningless weasel words.
It's not meaningless at all. It means exactly what it says: The glass is somewhere between negative infinity times and 2 times tougher than competitive glass. And it survives drops somewhere between 0 percent and 80 percent of the time. So be sure and take those figures into consideration when considering buying the product.
This post is up to twice as informative as the original article
The political influence of big corn is killing us; HFCS, Corn for fuel instead of growing food, lack of biodiversity... we should be growing a fraction of the corn we do.
