Sort of like the I-405 through Los Angeles.
Tesla already has one.
Beer cans, trolling jigs and outboard motors lost overboard.
Only allowed two digit ages and forgot to handle the overflow flag.
But she has offered to implement her ideas herself. So let her.
Only if you can tell her ideas are unlikely to have unforeseen bad effects, and can be implemented at reasonable cost.
Who has the burden of demonstrating that? And what is your threshold of 'unlikely' or 'reasonable'? It all comes down to taking calculated risks for an opportunity to improve. And if the people responsible for evaluating the cost/benefit ration have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, perhaps it is them that need to move on.
I've never seen a successful business that tolerated middle management just sitting on a process rather than improving it. One must always seek opportunities to clean up, sort, and optimize their assigned task. Not just come to work and do the same crap every day.
Griping about Obama is getting pretty old. Can't you come up with anything new?
It allows us to speak to other humans and learn things from them by building up explanations from the words they speak.
What about someone stuck on a deserted island? They can be 'creative' and formulate some ingenious ideas to aid in their survival. And yet there is no one to speak with.
On the other hand, understanding nature doesn't automatically lead to building upon that understanding to produce novel ideas or concepts. Some of the peoples most in tune with nature are living (and dying) much as their ancestors have for thousands of years. Where's the creativity?
1. Her ideas are crap and she's too sophomoric to know (Dunning-Kroger effect)
But she has offered to implement her ideas herself. So let her. If she is wrong, her lack of capability will be revealed. However, if she is right, management looks like morons.
# 2. She comes across as an abrasive know-it-all, or her communication skills are severely deficient in some other way
That's another way of saying "does not conform". Or "not a team player". Values that are worth less than many give them credit for. Except of course for people who depend on the anonymity of the team to mask their mediocrity.
then she should start her own company.
Not a skill set that everyone has. And perhaps she is realistic about it, wanting to work in her area of expertise rather than becoming a jack of all trades, handling all the crap that running a business entails. Perhaps she should go to work for your competitor.
After the missile had been launched and hit the target range, but before our satellites passed over again, they'd move the target closer to the impact point.
In Soviet Russia, target hits you!
(Sorry, couldn't resist)
"you pollute, you pay"
Pay what? We can't even get a climate model to work yet. Never mind attaching a dollars per 0.1 degree C figure to the resulting temp rise. So it all comes down to how much various parties whine and stamp their feet.
There are some proposals to create a carbon emissions marketplace. Just let the free market pick the dollars per ton number. But then we run into the 'magic trees' problem, where one pound of carbon credit sequestered by a rain forest tree in some third world tribal country (owned by Al Gore Inc.) is worth more than a pound of carbon sequestered by fast growing Monsanto genetic engineered super trees. In the final analysis, its all politics. What's the ROI on a political contribution and how much can we hire a group of professional protesters for.
Imagine a world full of solar tax subsidies. If you ask in a political context, you get a political answer.
Today, the price point of solar depends on those subsidies. take them away and one of two things will happen: Solar will fall flat on its face. Or the supply-demand curve will shift to a point where non-subsidized solar will make sense. Until that happens, the cost will stay high enough (and the payback low enough) that the only place solar will pay is in the magic fairy land of subsidy. And that is subject to manipulation in our present government system.
It takes time to reposition a satellite. Even after changing orbits, enemy forces can make reasonable estimates about when there will be coverage gaps and plan operations accordingly.
Point taken? What about Viet Nam?
I mean, besides supplying training, logistical and intelligence support, safe refuge, and munitions to jihadists
Remember Iran-Contra? Oh those evil Iranians, arming rebels and fomenting insurrection abroad.
But really, that's all ancient history.
Love picking at that scab, don't you? How were we getting along with Germany 32 years after our little kerfuffle with the Nazis? Did we stay this pissed off with them? Or is it a racial/religious thing?
That at the very least will cause Saudi Arabia and any others that possibly can to acquire nukes,
Muslim forces already have nukes. In fact, the same people who gave shelter to bin Laden. And I haven't heard a peep out of them. So perhaps the 'nutcase Imams' are a bit more level headed than you give them credit.
