I'm no fan of Michael Moore, but the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) has covered the state of health care in Cuba and the report seems pretty glowing, and the BBC have said the same. Cuba indeed does outdo some developed nations on certain health indices, and they have a health tourism industry as a result. I believe it was suggested in the BBC report that health care is one reason the Cuban government has stayed in power for so long.
From Wikipedia : "Diphtheria is usually spread between people by direct contact or through the air. It may also be spread by contaminated objects." There's no mention of it being soil-bourne, so I would assume it's one of the few from that bacterial order that isn't able to live in soil.
Unicorns exist... I've encoded them in my mind.
They're certainly interested eg. Rebecca Saxe. Yes, she explicitly says the pentagon has called her, though she says she's not returning the calls (see the first question asked at the end of this talk). I guess that's not where she is getting her funding.
That's interesting... the guy who maintains the init scripts for a project I'm involved with (ie. FusionDirectory) has some quite complicated init stuff going on, and yet he still agrees that accepting the genuine systemd goodness is not worth its bundled shortcomings.
So what you're saying is if it's modular in theory, but monolithic in practice it's not a systemd design problem but a problem with developers? Right, got it! In other news : those encryption standards that people say were "subverted" by the NSA to make a correct implimentation less likely are perfectly fine... nothing to see... move along. Any problems are with the developers.
Or Black Sheep... The Weta Workshop was involved, though I'm not sure if Peter Jackson directly played a part. It's certainly in line with what we know he's capable of though (from his early work).
Opinions differ... I've seen secretaries balk at LibreOffice, but that's understandable - they're topic experts, and noone wants to throw away so much experience with a product for minimal gain. I've also spoken to a technical writer, and she said she was forced to move to LibreOffice to support her workflow (stylesheet related problems... can't remember exactly what her issue was), but she was glad she made the effort. I haven't spoken to any topic experts about GIMP, but personally GIMP does much more than I ever think I'd need, and frankly I'm lost in front of Photoshop anyway and never wasted the time to get familiar.
Well, in my childhood (80's) peoples trust in the security services seemed much higher, and the Pew Research report itself says there was a nosedive since Snowden in 2012.
There was a time when these number would have been much better for the NSA... things are going downhill fast, and even in this age cohort two in three is the best they can manage.
Eh? 30% unfavourable vs 60% favourable, and in other age groups it gets worse for the NSA... this is HUGE, and the spin on this story is so strong it has picked up the Slashdot community and thrown it off its feet due to the gyroscopic force!
You've been outplayed... stop being a tool.
Probably not because of his obnoxious tweets... it's more likely to be because he's black (KKK) or he's accompanying his daughter to an abortion clinic that gets bombed.
Without an atmosphere we'd have -387 Fahrenheit (-233 Celsius) at night and 253 Fahrenheit (123 Celsius) during the day... so what's your point? Fine tuning couldn't be useful?? My hometown is much more bearable in summer during the night due to being inland (ie. less humid, lower temperatures). I'm not excited about everywhere progressively becoming less bearable due to higher CO2. The fossil record tells us that ocean acidification could be the greater danger in any case - marine algae (estimated to produce 50%-85% of the worlds oxygen) needs to create carbonate skeletons that are vulnerable. Even tough oysters are already dying off in many places.
Yes! Oh, and Tiger Woods sucks at golf... he usually misses the hole and needs several goes.
