A Finnish friend of mine told me when kids there reach the age of 2, during summer holidays, they take them to the countryside and get them to play naked in dirt and mud on purpose, to build up their immune system.
You may be more right than you think: a scientist has proposed the theory that toxoplasmosis carried by cats affects everything we feel and do.
Is keeps Russian probes warm and turns Russian spys cold.
is a monopoly tightening its grip on the market it monopolizes.
I grew fed up with android years ago. What kind of calculator app requires weekly updates? Dumbphones FTW
You don't *have* to update. Once I find a fully working app, I never update it. What would be the point, since it already works?
Well it's Google, what do you expect...
If you think Google works for the good of the user, think again.
You miss a crucial point : no small animal will be out and about when it snows in the northeast - and paperbags will get soggy in a hurry too - so the detection feature is not needed in those conditions.
Autonomous taxis already exist: you tell the driver to go the shortest or quickest way, and the driver almost always ignores you and chooses the least direct, more gridlocked route instead, all by himself
Also, you don't have to drive the taxi yourself.
Can it tell if the small animal is *inside* the paperbag? I'm thinking of cats specifically. Cats and paperbags... cat lovers know what I'm talking about.
When Google started shoving G+ down everyYoutube user's throat, I abandoned my 10+ year old Youtube account and moved all my videos to Vimeo and Dailymotion.
Youtube is Google is a privacy nightmare.
The last video I posted on Youtube before letting my account go derelict is a static image with a text describing why I will upload my videos elsewhere, and where to find them, and that video got many, MANY likes and comments from upset users. To me, that says I'm far from being the only Youtube user who's sickened by what Google has turned it into.
Hopefully the near 12 million pound savings can be expanded upon and cause others to follow suit.
The savings will surely help fund their joining the United Kingdom...
I think it was the days when Reagan was president and Dallas was best the tv had to offer.
And you think that was bad? At that time, Derrick was on tv too, and that's the image most people had - and often still have - of Munich around the world. They *had* to do something to change their image!
Big data monopolies like Google are the stuff of nightmare for privacy-minded individuals.
But there's a silver lining to that particular cloud: as the most important player in the field, they're the most visible target for abuse of all kinds. Which means that you have a better chance of dodging the abuse if you simply don't put yourself in the center of the target, by not using any Google product.
Kind of like when Windows had the lion's share of the OS market, and you could avoid most viruses by running another OS, not because the other OS was more secure, but because virus writers had a better return on investment writing viruses for Windows and left your fringe OS alone.
Sure, $2/day is relative and can mean anything. Our grandparents lived a healthy life on about the same amount but due to inflation the dollar became worthless.
I'm not sure what you're trying to demonstrate here. Your grandparents lived on $2 a day when $1000 bought you a car. Today's starving africans live on 2 of today's dollars, when $1000 buys a wing mirror. Your point is...?
But does that mean that the sintered parts were good, or that the originals are shit? You haven't given us enough information (make, model, caliber, and year of firearm to start with, not to mention the actual parts) to make this determination ourselves.
Well, I can't give you any specifics (make/model) or I'd reveal whom I worked for, and I'm under a non-disclosure agreement.
But here's an example of what I experienced with the sintered metal:
I took a test side-by-side 12 cal which had silver-brazed demi block barrels made of high-quality Bohler steel. I had a lock printed. All we did to the lock was polish it a bit to achieve perfect fit in the receiver, when we shot the gun repeatedly in double-shot with proofhouse loads (+30% powder). At some point, a rather massive 2-mm disjunction occured at the breech. We figured the lock's metal had given way. In fact it was the barrel's lugs that had flattened themselves onto the lock, and the lock itself was just fine. We were really amazed!
