This book on banana blight was published back in '07. It would be great if there were a map of how the disease has spread since then.

Essential! Since the moon is made of cheese you're bound to have a more than a few mice running around.
One of the biggest problems in American education is that teachers have to teach 30 students with different learning styles at the same time.
At some point that is pretty much an irreducible problem.
What if the students were in virtual classrooms (using VR headsets)? Each student would "jack into" the classroom with the teaching style that works best for them.
Dodged that bullet.
Everyone has different tolerances for this sort of thing but some people may be literally too terrified to play this game in VR.
DK2 rocks for any game with a cockpit -- space sims, driving sims, and some Mech Warrior like games.
FPS'... no so much. It's real easy to get queasy (for me anyway, YMMV). I'm hoping this becomes less of an issue over time but since there are other experiences out there that really excel with the Rift I'm not too concerned.
Oculus also has to come up with an standardize input system to enable more complex experiences. Something that is also positionally tracked (like the headset it) would be ideal since once you have your headset and headphones on fishing around for your mouse/keyboard or game controller is a pain.
During George W. Bush's first term, prior to the invasion of Iraq, Charles Rangel introduced a bill to reinstate the draft. While Rangel probably should have retired a few years ago I think this was a good move even if it amounted to nothing...
The New York Democrat told reporters his goal is two-fold: to jolt Americans into realizing the import of a possible unilateral strike against Iraq, which he opposes, and "to make it clear that if there were a war, there would be more equitable representation of people making sacrifices."
"I truly believe that those who make the decision and those who support the United States going into war would feel more readily the pain that's involved, the sacrifice that's involved, if they thought that the fighting force would include the affluent and those who historically have avoided this great responsibility," Rangel said.
Carmack confirms PS4 is capable of VR resolution and framerate...
I still think the PC will make a better platform but to each there own.
I'm not sure who gave you that reason but it's not the one I heard.
The triangular covers were first built by the Nashua Foundry in the 1920s or 1930s at the suggestion of an engineer named Walter Ellis, who thought the triangular shape would rattle less than traditional circles. The triangles are aligned to point in the direction of flow for the underlying sewer line, a valuable piece of information for sewer workers hunting down problems.
The law will change pretty quick when they realize that they are not getting sales tax revenue on $100k cars.
That would be a great point but many (most?) states collect sales tax when the vehicle is registered, not upon sale.
Actually, I thought Rove was one of the pioneers on this. Wasn't he in direct mail marketing before he took up politics?
Voted this morning... Lots of people, parking lot nearly full, many booths taken, but no hassles (presented my ID) or lines.
10.0 times 0.1 is hardly ever 1.0.
