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.
I'd imagine elements of this question are amenable to analysis eg. estimates can be made of the number of: * security bugs per 10,000 LOC * the likelyhood of a "set of eyes" to discover these Given these two, how many orders of magnitude "friendly eyes" (of equivalent skill) are required to make a malicious 0-day acceptably unlikely given XYZ million LOC on a given system.
I'm in another country (Australia), and I've recently experienced both private and public care due to a stage IV melanoma. I went private because I genuinely felt I would have better care, but got a post-op infection, and some of what I saw worried me. I checked myself into the public system for my second operation and did indeed recieve much better care - In particular wound management seemed much more professional. I've since spoken to people who have worked in both systems (nuclear physicist and a couple of nurses) and the consensus was that on average public system care is superior. I heard yesterday on Australias ABC that private hospitals are a few years behind in infection management, and I'm not surprised.
Look up "we knew he had WMD because we had the receipts"... It was practically a meme in 2006, though I'd imagine it wouldn't have been a popular one in certain circles.
I've discovered LXDE, and I think the lighter desktop options and alternatives in general got a lot of love when Gnome dropped the ball. And (at least for me) that has turned out to be a great thing... I've rediscovered "snap".
It would be a service even if it's during the week-long boycott and convinces Dice to be serious about backpedaling and engaging with the community. Not sure how you could fund something like that. It would be great if you could join the ##altslashdot IRC channel for some realtime discussion of collaboration possibilities.
...for those who know how to use IRC.
For those who know how to use an IRC client go to #slashdot-refugees on FreeNode. If you don't, use this handy web client and join anyway.
:) Commiserate and/or make plans in case this situation goes horribly wrong. :-/
Actually... I've created a channel on IRC called #slashdot-refugees (on FreeNode... there's even a web client. Some in the community might want to commiserate, discuss plans of keeping the community together into the future etc.. and a realtime medium might be a good way. It's 2am in Australia though, so although I'm in channel I won't be around for a few hours.
