You don't need the voting to be a full time job. But considering bills, figuring out the ramifications, thinking of ways to improve them so that they have the maximum desired impact with minimum side effects? That sure as hell sounds like a full time job.
If a private enterprise paid to create it, you're totally in the right. If the government paid for someone to do the research and make it, it ought to be government property and the profit from it should have been on the research.
People keep fallaciously saying this... If it makes you feel better, by all means keep repeating it to yourself. You don't
1) Understand HOW a President gets elected (Seriously- if you mention "popular vote" in this context, you DO NOT KNOW.)
2) Understand that it's not what YOU wish, but what a lot of other people think that you clearly know nothing about.
While I didn't agree with the man's take on things, I thought Romney was going to take it because of anti-Dem fervor back then. Clearly I was wrong. Pontificating like you have here, you're likely to be that too. Just don't act shocked, pissed, etc. when it doesn't work out that way. I won't agree with you then and I won't have any sympathy either.
I honestly wish people would realize this fact. Bill Clinton WAS Impeached- he was just not convicted of the accusations in the Articles of Impeachment.
Current blades are trucked in one piece (per blade) which is impressive to see. Three of them were parked on I-5 outside of Patterson, California a few months ago. There are a lot of net videos and photos which convey the scale.
Even at the current size they can't get through many highway interchanges and local intersections. The larger ones won't be able to ship in one piece at all.
The fact he wasn't charged doesn't mean he didn't break the law. The fact that they lost the civil lawsuit, and in fact lost it so badly that the judge rejected the initial settlement for not being big enough, proves that they did.
NASA Wind Turbines approached this scale in the '80's. Unfortunately, this was a previously-unexplored area of aerodynamics for NASA, and they had mechanical stress and noise problems (including subsonics) and were all demolished. I think there was one near Vallejo, CA being taken down when I got to Pixar in '87, and one in Boone, NC, which famously rattled windows and doors.
The art has since improved. I took a ride to the top of the turbine at Grouse Mountain, that was fun! That's the only one I have heard of where you can actually get to see it from the top.
He was breaking the law. No hire agreements are illegal constraints of trade under a variety of antitrust acts. Not wanting to work with him based on that isn't an activist position, its not wanting to hire a criminal to a position of trust.
Its not uncommon with large investors. If you have a startup and I buy 40% of the company, its normal for me to have 40% of the board as well. A board's job is to be independent of the management, not of the owners.
As for 3 seats vs 1 seat- 3 seats gives 3 different people with different sets of views and opinions when asked for advice. It also means Carl doesn't have to show up to board meetings himself, his cronies do.
This is starting out with the wrong assumptions.
Design a brick system that can be produced with 3-D printers, and will hold together when fabricated within the tolerances of an SLA printer. Forget FDM, it's too low precision and SLA is already achieving an equal or lower cost of manufacture compared with FDM.
LEGO is manufactured to astonishingly high precision, but I am not convinced that this is the only way to make a brick system.
The JS based interface is unusable. I'd rather just not participate than use that piece of shit.
Last yeer I kudn't spel Engineer. Now I are won.
