Just costly. But having a snafu like this at xmas will likely drive Amazon to spend more money quicker on it then they'd like, just for the reliability.
Which is slightly ironic, because there are folks who do exactly the same thing with photos from bookings when you are arrested. He may end up on the page of one of those blackmailers. Are the cops going after them as well?
They need the right to the death penalty.
No, it's not. It's the maximum the NIH will directly pay the PI for the postdoc position. PIs discretionary funds, departmental, or institutional funds are often added to boost the salary of folks in competitive areas. I know many folks paying their post docs well above that. Just because you don't know any, doesn't mean it doesn't happen, or isn't common.
You are just wrong. NIH sets a minimum, and I've gotten more than that. So have a lot of other folks I know. You just don't know what you are talking about, as should be expected from a coward.
It's because everyone is so suprised they are still alive, and wondering what they are doing to make enough money to live.
Everyone I know in STEM that paid is a foreigner. I'm in the Bio field. All U.S. born grad students in the universities I'm familiar with had their tuition paid and received a stipend from the university or a training grant they were on. They didn't make a lot, but none paid for classes at all.
Really? Then how do I know several that make well over 60k? How did I know postdocs 10 years ago that made 60k?
With the right skills in the right area, yes, you can make that at a good research university. One in the midwest with decent cost of living even.
Heck, NIH funded postdocs start at over $39K, with 0 years of experience. Work in a competitive area and your boss will throw in money above that.
Yes, it would have been much better if my grandparents hadn't gotten a land-line phone on their farm 80 years ago, and just waited 60+ years for cell-phone technology to be invented. All those phone calls to friends, relatives, doctors, etc, were all wasted on inferior, expensive land lines. They should have just driven across country for a half-century or so whenever they wanted to talk to someone.
Your example kind of sucks.
Really? Apple designs things. They are then manufacted by very low-pay labor in China. Apple is decoupled. Apple still makes a shit-ton of money, while the workers producing the goods make well, shit. It's not hidden. Everyone knows about the factories in China with nets to catch suiciding workers. Apple doesn't seem to be facing any problem.
You mean the rich will still be able to make "gobs of wealth" by outsourcing all their low paying jobs to contractors or or other copanies providing the low-pay employees to do the grunt work.
You think a CEO wants to deal with a wallet full of Bitcoins that the value varies so hugely with over time, and is still considered something that could be quashed by governments? Nah.
What they'll do is simply outsource all the low pay jobs in the copany to other companies that suddenly their spouses and friends start up. All that will be left of the parent company is executives, that can crank up their salaries at will.
"Just because our rods and cones don't react to the different wavelength doesn't make it any more dangerous."
You forgot the other exception. The other end of our color range. We see down to ~390nm on the blue end of the spectrum. But ultraviolet light at ~240nm will break down our DNA and cause cancer, kill cells, etc.
We were secretly giving Americans anal probes during their sleep. It was for your own good so that the terrorists wouldn't win.
Dumbest thing I ever heard. The name is in reference to black vs red ink in accounting books showing positive or negative numbers. Black is a positive thing in accounting. Some people go out of their way to be offended by things that aren't relevant.
