Wouldn't the elderly be better off on a space station? You could actually control the level of (artificial) gravity by designing it with rings and spinning the station (ref. almost every scifi story in space). They could start off at the outer layers (maybe 0.5 G equiv.?) and work their way up through the rings as their capabilities decreased. When they perish (dead ringers?) they could be released to fall back to Earth (shooting star), or on an orbit to intersect the Sun (if they need more flare) or wherever they chose.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
That's an obvious solution of course, I think the holdup on it is that the test is given on dedicated Chomebooks, and they don't have enough of them to administer the test to all students at once.
...never UTC-3 unless someone is working very early hours. So it seems like weak evidence indeed!
AFAIK working early doesn't change your timezone, unless you're a pilot or long-distance driver (if it did I probably would have lapped my office a few times by now).
UTC-3 seems to only cover part of Greenland and Brazil, both well-known hotbeds of hacker activity. I suspect that the timezone information is as accurate as info found in random strings in the malware (BACKSNARF_AB25: darn it, time to change the combination on my luggage again...).
Or better yet change the GPS data to the coordinates of a prison or army base.
These drug companies are already raking in $XX billions on other drugs, and the cost to develop a new antibiotic could be less than some of their advertising budgets. The $2 billion might not even be enough incentive.
How about a rule like for every non-antibiotic drug that is approved by the FDA, they also need to submit one antibiotic drug for approval? That would get their attention.
But I'm only laughing because I'm not British. This would terrify me if I were British. Not that we don't have plenty of similar nuts in Congress.
Has anyone checked recently if Treddinick weighs as much as a duck? I think it's time.
I'm actually astounded by how often computer guys can be so bad at the science they claim to be upholders of.
Tell them that the vaccine is an update or patch to their immune system for a common exploit. Or new virus definitions, literally. They should get that.
Have they searched for unexplained sources of neutrons in our brane? I guess that might indicate a nuclear reactor (or something else interesting) one brane over.
He should get a wireless connection and put some high-voltage lines where the 'internet lines' were. Then just sit back and wait for the show to begin.
Reported a few minutes ago, all three terrorists are dead.
You're discounting range. A pen might be mightier than a sword, but its range sucks compared to a gun.
Now if a few people had flung chairs, books, hot coffee, etc. (basically anything heavy enough to do a little damage/distraction) they could undoubtedly have then rushed the gunmen with fewer losses than occurred from sitting there waiting for their name to be called.
If every newspaper in France were to re-print some of the more controversial cartoons form Charlie Hebdo, or offer to print and distribute next week's issue as a special insert, it would send a strong message to terrorists that the "Streisand Effect" is real.
And then the terrorists next target: Barbra Streisand.
If enough people were to infiltrate the HOA, could the HOA vote to disband itself? That might be a fun hobby...
Probably no, but not due to HOA rules. My mortgage agreement has a line in it about not taking any action to disband the HOA. Fortunately, while my HOA is far from great and has its own range of issues, it doesn't seem as bad as many mentioned here.
...they're going to dig for copper cabling that's thousands of years old,
I have some Verizon cables in my neighborhood that seem like they might qualify.
Nice of Sony to make this announcement after North Korea is knocked off the internet. Very passive-aggressive, Sony. Let's see if it's still available when North Korea gets back online.
