How about "STEEM" (with an extra E for English)?
You should learn about the STEAM (with an 'A') movement. The idea is to add Art + Design to the equation, so that STEM is transformed into STEAM.
The idea makes sense to me, but I also see that there is an advantage of leaving the 'A' out of STEM -- having 'art' in the acronym would make it more obvious that the plutocrafts' real goal with STEM is to turn all the workers into starving artists.
I'm in N Central Florida and I've regularly seen traceroutes leaving local residential/commericial access, go up to a NSA-enabled router in Atlanta, and back down to a local college.
Fixed that for you.
Hey, McGruber! The Cumbres & Toltec is waiting for you. Ball's in your court...
Is that you jaybawb?
Here is what else you should know about Nokia 215. It has a 2.4-inch display, 0.3 MP camera on the back (which can shoot video), 8 MB of RAM (that is not a typo)
Well that's one way to keep Android from being ported to it...
But, as you astutely point out, so much of the enterprise business simply can't be moved for legal reasons, or the cost to move the stuff is so immense, it would take many years of active, focused effort (and billions and billions of dollars) to move it. In my Data Center, we had a lot of the major airlines as clients as well as some of the financial and regulatory clients, so I know exactly what you mean.
You're a goner. An airline (or another of your major clients) will take over your firm.
The only way US airlines can continue being profitable is to keep lowering their costs. If taking over a supplier is what they need to do to lower their costs, then they'll do just that.
Back in 2012, Delta Airlines spent $150 million to buy the Trainer refinery in Pennsylvania. Delta then focused the refinery on making jet fuel, which flooded the marketplace with supply, lowering Delta's fuel costs by $240+ million each year!
I suspect it would be a lot easier for a Airline, which already has an extensive IT dept and CTO, to take over an IT provider than a refinery!
Yeah, because being a farmer is such a cushy gig.
Modern farm tractors are equipped with air-conditioned cabs and stereo systems -- Farming (in the first world) is a lot cushier than it used to be!
At the call center we called them "idiot cards" because you'd have to be one to think they were any benefit to you.
"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself." - Mark Twain
Why would an employer want to turn down a self-motivated candidate that spent his weekends reading documentation with a portfolio full of projects for a fresh out of college kid who spent his weekends getting drunk with a small portfolio of school projects?
The employer will turn down the self-motivated candidate whenever the employer needs a new drinking buddy.
After a clandestine meeting at a Hampton park, FBI agents say engineer Mostafa Ahmed Awwad provided four computer-aided design drawings of the Ford and described where to strike the vessel with a missile to sink it.
"it was not until someone made a cell phone video of a standup routine which a young comedian named Hannibal Buress had been doing for several weeks, that the story ignited. There was nothing new in what he said — there have even been previous comedy routines about the rape allegations — except this: “You leave here and google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ It’s not funny. That s*** has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.’”
Somebody put the clip up on a Philadelphia magazine’s website, and a lot of people did what Buress suggested. In a cosmic piece of bad timing, Cosby’s website put up a meme generator, which allowed readers to write a headline on a picture of the star and post it on social media sites. That helped fan the now-flickering flame, which gained force as one after another woman came forward to accuse him.
Baxter also posits that "it's inevitable that there will be efforts to control access to the scattered bits of information that could create a media fire, as well as malicious attempts to strike matches.""
