What exactly is the "right temperature". If I'm home, and it's a chilly winter day the "right temperature" is 66-68. If I'm out for the day it might be 60 or lower. If I'm gone for a week it could be 50. Same thing when everyone in the house is snug in bed. And if the wind is picking up and blowing through the old windows, the temperature where the thermostat is might be 5 degrees warmer than the temperature at the other end of the house. A smart thermostat can learn or be programmed for all of those situations.
Whispers are more powerful than shouts.
Yes, you can but then again, no you can't. They're such a convoluted mess of dependencies that you can never tell what disabling one of them might do to the rest of your phone. Others cannot be disabled through the application manager and even worse, some of them you cannot turn off notifications for. Not to mention that many calls are hardcoded to bring up those apps (holding the menu button on the latest Samsung phones is hard coded to bring up "S-Finder" for instance). I love Android, but you can't just wave away valid criticism with a poor work around.
Most kids are healthy and happy. With a data sample of one it's hardly surprising that things turned out well. I can tell you this right now, it's much more important to your child's future that you cared than that it is that you changed your diet.
Well, most pregnant women and women trying to get pregnant are recommended to take folic acid daily; so the risk must be present even for the typical diet. I, for one, had never heard of a link between sperm quality (which is the root cause of the birth defects) and B9 deficiency. In fact, it's relatively rare that the father comes into picture at all when looking at birth defects so even if the deficiency hardly ever happened it would still be interesting news IMO.
You have the response to this wishful thinking in your very own post
it was millions of years...
It can take a very long time to open up new metabolic pathways.
It doesn't matter if it's subjective if the people doing the subjective grading don't know who did and didn't go to the museum as part of the study. Well, also if the essays were graded in random order, were otherwise identical, etc, etc, etc, There is nothing wrong with using a subjective measure as long as the person doing the measuring is blind to the parameters the study is looking at.
As a developer of original software products, I consider it impossible - just my opinion - to determine if any software I create infringes on existing patents.
I'll make it easy for you: it does. Unless you're coding ridiculously simple, run of the mill, junior college project level software, you are violating someone's patents somewhere in your code. Will someone come kicking down your door someday? Probably not, at least, not unless you become successful enough to be worth it.
No, someone laid out some thoughts along the right lines in 1973, they wrote a single memo about it which was shelved and forgotten about for 20 years. Diffie independently came up with the same thoughts and actually fleshed them out into a working, practical system. It's the difference between saying "if you burn some stuff, and it goes shooting out this end here... you'll move forward" and the blueprint for a working rocket engine.
He didn't say he got married because he wanted someone to kill him. He said he never would have married someone who wouldn't.
"Lets get married so we can end each other's life when the time comes"
"I can't marry someone who doesn't love me enough to respect my wishes and end my life, even though it will be painful and difficult for them"
also I wonder how did my grandparents managed to be successful farmers
Because everyone else that was farming was doing it the same way they were, so they were cost competitive. Because at the time your grandparents were farming they were part of the 20-25% of Americans directly involved in agriculture (as opposed to the 1-2% now). Also, and I'm just guessing, because they had the resources to buy sufficient land and equipment to get started.
The primary thing to upgrade is the electrode array, which means you're going to have to open up the patient's eye anyway. With a hardwired connection you don't need to worry about powering the array, signal quality, processing the incoming signal, etc. You also have fewer security concerns.
I think what they will find if they do this research large scale is lots and lots of people who infect one or two others, and a relatively small ( 5% ) number who infect lots and lots of people. Either because they don't know they're infected or they don't care. Showing how the network of infections is laid out can lead to better prevention, better diagnosis, and even better treatment since some strains of HIV respond better to some drugs than others.
- 13-day/night cycle
- 275 Kelvin temperature variation
There are areas near the poles that have basically unending sunshine, neatly taking care of those 2 issues.
Those same areas have been show to contain a surprising amount of water in the regolith, in the range of cups per cubic meter.
lunar regolith useless as soil
Soil is overrated anyway. Hydroponics (or even aeroponics) allows better production with more efficient use of resources. Of course, eventually it'd be nice to work out exactly what it will take to break down the regolith into something earth plant life can survive in; but in it's simply not necessary.
Rock is a pretty good insulator and the impact would have thrown boulders from well away from ground zero. Basically, you've got a single shot Orion Drive with rock instead of a steal shield. You'd actually have a harder time keeping a rock cool on the way up and out than from heat directly from the blast; you'd have to leave the ground significantly above escape velocity to maintain that speed through a few dozen kilometers of atmosphere.
