Sadly, though, not all carriers offer to disable voice-mail.
Yeah, just be careful with the baby pics
Sheesh... The US gets crazier by the year...
The reason it's special is because it was social. Had you worked prior to the internet being mainstream, you'd fully appreciate how going through your network of contacts and various venues for information can yield tremendous other contact and business opportunities.
Google may have simplified the process of locating information online, but at the same time it *decreased* the amount of social interactions, to a point where the typical 20-something youngster is scared sh*tless of picking up a phone to call someone.
It actually has to do with keeping know-how in-house. Consider Airbus, then consider Boeing. One is all EU-based. The other outsources in Asia. Wanna take a bet on who goes bust first?
3... 2... 1...
Looks prettier than Canadian tar sands imho. And I imagine less harmful than hydraulic fracking.
Companies are already applying US and EU laws and norms every day. Because, well... taken as a single entity, the EU is actually a bigger economy than the US, and the US is still significantly bigger than China -- whose laws a whole slew of firms comply with as well.
Truth is, it doesn't really matter if your laws don't apply globally in theory when you're a big economy. Firms will apply your laws anyway.
One more: immutable.
Most of them are made with natural, plant-based ingredients.
Cyanide is present in apricot, apple and peach seeds -- it's a natural, plant-based ingredient. That doesn't make it healthy.
An egg, in contrast, contains everything you need to turn a single cell into a grown chick. It's probably healthy.
"Hampton Creek is a food technology company that makes food healthier by utilizing a specially made egg substitute in food products."
Why would an egg be unhealthy? Leaving anecdotical and not-so-anecdotical data aside, that little shell arguably contains every nutrient needed to turn a single cell into a full blown and healthy chick.
"Hampton Creek's latest product is called, Just Cookies, which is an eggless chocolate chip cookie dough"
Sounds like something sugary... That would be healthy?
Wouldn't the target government's obvious reaction be to block Amnesty International's site? Or worse, to masquerade as their site in order to distribute spyware?
If speed limits were uniformly and strictly enforced (rather than an occasional tax on the driver), there would likely be enough outrage to repeal them.
In some EU countries, they're uniformly and strictly enforced by automated radars. Think France, for instance. Best I'm aware, there's little outrage -- except from a very vocal group of reckless drivers.
Speaking for myself, I find it interesting that new generations of automated radars are becoming smart enough to reliably detect when a truck or a bus is speeding when their speed limit differs from those of automobiles, or when drivers fail to respect safety distances.
Puzzled here... How can an incredibly profitable product line be... "weak"?
Six months sounds good enough, to me. That's longer than I would want to live in a temporary shelter. Much longer and you're not so much providing humanitarian aid, as you are shipping-in prefabricated houses for many thousands of people. (...)
After 6 months, you should be building-up an economy... Paying some of those local refugees (a truly tiny amount of) money, to construct real homes for their fellow refugees, and hopefully even a few commercial structures.
You don't seem to realize that there are millions of stateless people out there in the world.
Consider the breakups of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia for but recent examples. Not one of us says one country; not born here says the other. Stateless. Dramatically so when they end up in refugee camps, as was the case the Balkans.
What it means in practice: no citizenship in their home country; no citizenship in the country they're refugees in; no passport; no State willing to give them a passport; no State rushing to give them asylum; no right to work, let alone to travel; essentially no rights at all, in fact; nothing; zip. Just the right to sit there and wait in a camp. Sometimes for years.
Anyway, yeah, you're right on paper. It would be a lot better if you could just give them some money to move on with life. In practice, you'll find that they're simply not welcome to settle anywhere -- not even home.
Seriously, WTF people?
On top of that, all these extensions to block ads are going to end up backfiring in a huge way. When sites start to lose significant amounts of money, they're going to move to more and more annoying and integrated ads, until the ads become indistinguishable from the content itself. That's just making the web worse for everyone.
So block the annoying ads, let the non-annoying ones through, and don't destroy the internet.
Meh. Too late. AdBlock Plus is already receiving sponsorships/bribes to let "quality" ads through:
