Drug smugglers in Europe managed to deliver 400kg of cocaine to the Aldi supermarket chain in Berlin. So apparently not all drug smugglers are good at moving their contraband.
and of course yet another member of the Bush family. Yes Jeb is looking to run in 2016.
Last December I heard some conservative political commentator ripping Jeb to shreds because Jeb didn't speak like a 'murican. This commentator was objecting to Jeb using latino pronunciation when saying spanish words. With that sort of animosity brewing in places, Jeb is going to have a lot of trouble navigating the republican political machine regardless of how good a candidate he is.
There are various reasons Stallman couldn't make it as politician, but the most relevant one right now is that in the US we can't have candidates that can't be packaged like a product.
Stallman could't be elected because (for better or worse) Stallman is an extremist and true believer. No-one who has such a rigid position - no matter what their politics - is electable.
They spun out Agilent for that role into its own company
Yeah my memory was dim on that.
But HP still managed get rid of the business that was the core of what Hewlett and Packard created in their garage.
Remember back in the 70's & 80's when HP was one of the top 10 companies in the world
Not only that you could feel smug about owning an HP calculator that used RPN
(Also HP test gear was the bomb. I know that they sold off that section to someone else, but I have no idea if the current iteration of test gear has the same reputation.)
On the other hand, a computer can be trained to pick up clues in the image that most people wouldn't notice.
In which case it should have correctly estimated Obama's age in the second picture.
Or is this a "true scotsman" issue in that "a well trained system would have correctly estimated obamas age in the second pic" ??
You seem to assume that computers can't be better than humans?
Let me simplify my comment for you: A computer cannot control for factors that are not encoded in an image. But those factors can effect apparent age.
If people can't tell your age when looking at you, how can you get a computer to do it accurately?
A persons apparent age is going to depend on a whole bunch of things including environmental things. EG take a farmer who spends all of his time outdoors and someone who partakes in a regime of moisturizers, skin peeling and other assorted beauty activities and lives in their mom's basement. Even if they are the same biological age, they won't look the same apparent age.
How exactly is the seat unsold in this case? It was sold, it is simply unoccupied.
I agree. If anything the airline made *more* money as it didn't have to expend the fuel to get the passenger from Chicago to LA.
How does this work with checked luggage?
It only works with carry on, unless you want you checked luggage to end in LA. But given that people are trying to pass off huge cases as carry ons, it doesn't seem much of an impediment.
There's no way that it would power a home in the US. I can hear the constant squealing of the overload notification already.
Who says you are limited to buying just one?
Something I learned 20 years ago, is that you never, never have a non-tech directly manage techs.
You can say the same thing about recruiters.
I saw it on Ars before I saw it here. It is also on the front page of CNN
He also did things like stay out at night and dance tango. He's the cool pope that is needed by the catholic church!
While I would have no reason to consider the pope's opinion on a scientific matter to be particularly interesting; doesn't climate change count as a glaringly obvious moral issue under all but the very, very, most optimistic models of its expected effects?
Only if it exists(*)
* Note that I am not advocating either side - I am just pointing out the likely basis for the argument against the pope getting involved.
