Australian Billionaire Plans To Build Titanic II 289 289

SchrodingerZ writes "Just in time to miss the 100-year anniversary of the fatal voyage of the Titanic, Australian mining billionaire Clive Palmer announced he has plans to recreate the Titanic, calling it Titanic II. 'It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st Century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems,' says Palmer. He stated it was to be as close to the original as possible, with some modern adjustments. Its maiden voyage is set for 2016."

They also no longer require residency (even though it was really just paperwork before for the claim), clarified last December. Cheap and easy, with quick and friendly response to questions.

If I knew it was workplace policy, I would be fine with it, because I could work elsewhere if I wasn't.

As someone who has had to deal with plagiarism in courses taught, I am very much in favor of detention on first offenses for failure to cite sources or quote works. It's a serious problem later in life, especially for those in fields where scholarly publication is a key part of work. Plagiarism, accidental or intentional, will get you rejected from publication and (depending on circumstances) could get you fired or open your school/company up to lawsuits.
