I'd argue that you really need a non-insignificant portion of the company to work harder. I used to work for a rather large company and received options and also participated in the stock purchase plan. But my little blip of ownership wasn't enough for me to work any harder than I already did. Sure, I liked it when options vested and/or the stock price went up.....but I looked at that as "vacation money" or "new toy money" and not as a reward for working harder. Had I received options in the realm of the executives, then sure, I would have worked hard to make sure they stock price was jumping by leaps and bounds.....but for us peons, it didn't make much difference.
It is legal tender for those debts, but it isn't required that all debts accept it. Something that ISN'T legal tender for all debts is sex (in certain locales, others may allow it). You aren't legally allowed to pay for a debt with sex.
Go check out the Nokia 520. http://www.amazon.com/Nokia-Lu...
That's not a contract price, that's to buy it straight out. If you play with the phone, it's responsive and for the money, the specs aren't bad (5MP camera, dual-core 1Ghz CPU, etc.). There are apps that won't run on it, but most will. And it's the Nokia design. If you want to play around with Windows Phone development, it's a great dev phone.
Great performance on lesser hardware. Windows Phone is more responsive on comparable hardware than Android or iOS. If it's free to license, I think you'll see Windows Phone make a good run at the lower-end phone market......it already does fairly well there in Europe, we'll see what this does for their position in India.
I've solved plenty of problems in novel ways. I've also solved problems based on a post I found on Stack Overflow.
My main complaint is that software patents don't reveal how to implement them. So I can't know whether I've devised a new and novel way of sliding to unlock or not. Software patents are akin to patenting "engines" and suing for billions when the rotary engine even though you invented the carburated combustion engine
I think it just adds another layer to the storage tree: near/quick memory all the way to far/slow memory. You have your various layers of cache on the processor, RAM, RAM disks, SSDs, Hard drives, Tape drives, etc.
I've long been a proponent of the "fall back 30 minutes and leave it alone". Split the difference.
The thing that bugs me most about the time change is the nagging from my wife to adjust all of the clocks. And of course she wants them to PRETTY instead of being the self adjusting kind (women and their aesthetics....)
You can't even trust those......it's not impossible for your company to set up their own little cell tower covering their buildings......
In my case, it was the K&R C books with foo and bar. But I'm also aware of FUBAR and what the acronym means......but I find foobar to be more "friendly", so when I don't want to insult someone per se, I'll use the foobar version. If I want to lambast someone, I'll use FUBAR (I also capitalize them as I've done in this post, so FUBAR is akin to yelling, too).
You should have a different resume for each job you apply for......
Keep a master resume with all of your details. When you apply for a job, copy the master and pare it down to the information most relevant to the job you are applying for. Then edit the result so that you look like the perfect candidate.....update project descriptions to emphasize the same buzzwords in the job listing, etc.
If you only have one resume that you blast out to a ton of different job listings and they'll probably focus on the projects that are meaningless to their situation and weed you out more often than not.
Oh, and BI (business intelligence) is still going strong at the company I work for......(not my area, but there's still tons of work under that label).
Where's the CSS to make it black/red? Your emulation is foobar'ed.
But will it protect one's Bitcoins?
This is slashdot. We all count in binary on our fingers. So -- FOUR.
I'm more in favor of the opposite approach. Every so often, students should take aptitude tests which help direct the classes they are required to take. Score stronger in STEM subjects and get out of a Humanities subject. Score stronger in Humanities, get out of a STEM class. I'm not saying you get out of all of them, but you shouldn't be forced to take as many classes that you clearly aren't interested in.
Kids that don't want to learn hamper the students that do want to learn (there were many times when I was so far ahead of the rest of the class and had to sit there bored while we went over the SAME content that we covered last week). It was one of the things I liked best once I made it to college --- classes mostly only had students that wanted to learn the content of the course.
I wonder whether it's FUD around the option (probably defaulted to opt-in) to participate in Microsoft's "feedback" program. Google and iOS have the same type of feature. It's basically how traffic data is captured for the various maps. There are other "user experience" data points that are captured, too.
