Funding PRIVATE SCHOOLS!?!?! OMG, it's the end of the world as we know it! Surely, they know that not everyone can attend a PRIVATE school!
Seems to me that there are two ways of looking at this. Are you basing the evaluation on the finished application or on the quality of the source code/architecture? I've seen really dreadful source code that doesn't follow good standards an practices common in the industry yet has impressive results. I've also seen coding requirements be so complex as to hinder the development process.
From the wikipedia entry on the chemical:
2-Butoxyethanol is a solvent for paints and surface coatings, as well as cleaning products and inks. Products that contain 2-butoxyethanol include acrylic resin formulations, asphalt release agents, firefighting foam, leather protectors, oil spill dispersants, degreaser applications, photographic strip solutions, whiteboard cleaners, liquid soaps, cosmetics, dry cleaning solutions, lacquers, varnishes, herbicides, latex paints, enamels, printing paste, and varnish removers, and silicone caulk. Products containing this compound are commonly found at construction sites, automobile repair shops, print shops, and facilities that produce sterilizing and cleaning products. It is the main ingredient of many home, commercial and industrial cleaning solutions. Since the molecule has both non-polar and polar ends, butoxyethanol is useful for removing both polar and non-polar substances, like grease and oils. It is also approved by the U.S. FDA to be used as direct and indirect food additives, which include antimicrobial agents, defoamers, stabilizers, and adhesives.
So, basically, this stuff can be found pretty much EVERYWHERE and pretty much everywhere in or around a home. But, nope, nope, nope, these samples HAD to come from fracking wells.
An ovum only starts to divide after it's been fertilized which would make it an embryo. If you're worried about pluralism, the correct term would be ova.
GAH!!! If you're going to talk about scientific things, please learn the correct terminology which would be ovum in this case. Life is tough enough without people constantly trying to invent words to make themselves sound important.
Where is my transporter, dammit?
Subscribers to the Many Worlds Theory would also argue that in some of them...wait for it...One Direction never existed...*GASP*
But does this stuff require clean, fresh, potable water? Lots of people are bent out of shape about fresh water shortages.
FB is a software company. Actually, that's being generous. They're a post-dot-com dot-com company.
I see terrorists usually carrying AK-47s. Maybe we should ban those.
I'm assuming that he's talking about Skywalker Ranch which is a whole valley. His neighbors can't even see inside the valley...by design. Why are they complaining? Fun fact, the lake in the middle of the ranch is called Lake Ewok.
I'd opine that such cars are more crash-ready than today's cars given that they're made of actual metal and heavy gauge metal instead of plastic.
On that subject, I'm amused by the ad for the smart car where they show a pickup truck on top of the space frame. Yeah, um, you do know that F=ma, right?
Bonuses are a convenient way for the corporation to reduce its tax liability.
