Paging the world's smallest violin, you're needed on board the waaaamublance.
Nope, polygraphs DO work....but only because people THINK they work.
They trick people into confessing things they wouldn't otherwise confess, because "the machine will find out" anyway and at least there may be some mercy if they voluntarily confess.
All bullshit, of course, but it does work....just not for the reasons we assume it does.
I live in Paris... the waiters are fine. The tourists are a pain in the ass.
I bet your economy likes the $ they spend, though...
No blue carpet or gold curtain rods?
I thought SF86 only asked about the last 7 years, or since you were 18 if you're under 25?
I reported my arrest (no conviction, and it was a misdemeanor) and past drug use on my SF86 and still got a Secret clearance, never heard boo about it. Hell, I never even got pee tested.
Crashplan is exactly what the OP is looking for.
Computers don't have to be on constantly (they'll back up when they both happen to be on).
All 3 of those statements are true.
Paying your credit card bill doesn't raise your debt. The debt has already been incurred, you're just authorizing the servicing of that debt.
I'm sure they could program something along those lines.
"Weird object enters roadway = engage cautious mode for next X seconds."
And even if it does kill the occasional child in that scenario, it'll save thousands more from fiery wrecks and other instances where they're passengers.
A human would respond the same or worse in every one of those scenarios.
Autonomous cars don't have to be perfect, they just have to be better at driving than humans (which is a *really* low bar to clear).
So long as I get whatever my employer was contributing to my health insurance added to my paycheck, that works for me.
The United States has outcompeted the rest of the first world with it's ostensibly-atrocious medical system for 50+ years...it doesn't seem like that's much of a problem in that context.
You don't think the fact that most 1st-world nations, except for the US, were smoking craters with devastated infrastructure after WWII had just a *little* to do with that?
I wonder who "Pod 6" is?
It could be a Sealab 2021 reference? Captain Murphy is always complaining about "The jerks in pod 6". Maybe a pet name for some group the dev doesn't like?
The problem with wireless charging is that a single charge pad costs $50+. A usb cable + wall wart costs $5.
The problem isn't that it runs on the most convenient fuel around. It's that 90%+ of the energy turns into waste heat.
Not that horses are better, but the efficiency of ICEs is terrible.
Every employee had to show up to the office and be given a formal-on-paper memo telling them they were furloughed. Remember, by statute, the in-person delivery of a notice on paper was required.
All of this may have been changed in the meantime.
Nope, hasn't changed. My Dad is a Fed employee and he has to go in today for about 2 hours to "tidy up" and sign his furlough paperwork. Not sure about people who usually work from home (he doesn't).
