Yup. It was.
did you think that the national debt magically came 'poof' into being sometime in 2001?
The seeds for it were planted then: increased spending for prescriptions and silly wars and decreased tax revenues per legislation starting around 2001. (Not to mention financial deregulation which magnified the crash.) Thus, we had no budget-related safety margin when a 1929-sized crash hit such that we had to burn the furniture to keep the economic furnace lit.
Actually, scratch that. This is a better link to the source:
you see, our posterior end got welded to Iraq.
They could be UFO's popping in from another dimension. All joking aside, I wonder if the data actually points to meteors or just a general disturbance because otherwise the disturbances could be some unknown phenomena.
So now they need workers who can actually build stems.
If so, when does the Game Over banner come on?
If bandwidth cost is an issue, then perhaps the solution is to rent or purchase the content. Maybe if aero is avaible in your market, this might be an option. I don't know if they allow buffering of a whole show. Rent or purchase may be competitive depending on the data costs.
So am I also a whacko?
I can use logic and reason to determine which model I think makes more sense.
You're doing it wrong. You're supposed to use logic and reason to figure out a possible model that fits the evidence. You're using logic and reason to determine a model you thinks makes more sense in spite of the evidence.
What is with this reaction of Americans to the French/Latin word "libre"?
I dunno. I kinda liked the bit about going down to Morganville with an onion tied to his belt.
Well, you're new around here, and probably a kid (judging by your UID), but I can assure you, that was the fashion at the time.
The problem is that the H1B's are not sent home if the economy or IT crashes. When the econ crashes, H1B's will often work for desperate wages/hours so they won't be sent home while trying to find a better gig, clogging up the limited jobs for citizens.
Further, I doubt most H1B's are paid the higher salaries, for the very reason most companies use them is for cheaper labor that have no families and work long hours.
Save up guys, it smells like a bubble and quacks like a bubble. It may not be, but better to be safe than sorry. Those who don't learn from history live in the back of 1992 Honda Civics.
Critical thinking skills are taught, at least at the high school level, in course most people don't want to take. History where you read and write papers on what is read. Philosophy where formal logic and general help you develop the ability to judge and make an argument. Literature where you can learn to think creatively to join ideas that were not joined before. Engineering and hard science classes where you actually can build devices. Maths where you learn the formal methods to process information.
Honestly, I see way to much time teaching MS Office and other applications. If those things need to be taught, they need to be embedded in something rigorous.This even goes for teaching coding.
