With all the laws we have now the idea of a "law abiding citizen" is a fantasy. Everyone has broken some law.
Adoption includes the state in the process of granting and terminating parental rights. So it isn't an agreement between "two persons".
Just say the Coulomb is 6.24150965e×10^18 * (the charge on an electron), and the amp is 1 C/s. The resulting 25ppb uncertainty in the definition of the Coulomb is probably better then anything you'll get out of trying to realize the current standard.
The current (early 2011) uncertainty in Avogadro number is about 30 ppb. The current uncertainty in the hunk of metal is about 20 ppb. I don't think the International Committee for Weights and Measures would consider making a switch unless it is one that would reduce uncertainty.
An assistant professor is usually non-tenured but is on the tenure track. Generally it means you have like 5 or fewer years of experience in the job.
The Maquis were wiped out in the 2nd half of season 5 of DS9. It started in "By Inferno's Light" and had been completed by "Blaze of Glory".
Do you have a source for that? My understanding is that he was a research associate at Harvard.
No, but parents who are so worried about autism that they're willing to skip vaccines might be more (or less) likely to try and have their kid diagnosed with autism later in life if they start showing symptoms.
$0.42 per play is not a bad price when you consider that many (most?) popular songs are available for purchase for $0.99.
$0.42 per play is also 100x what the artist is getting paid. They are getting 0.42 cents ($0.0042) a play.
Well, time to sacrifice some karma on the truth once again. The poster child for geothermal power in the USA is Calpine at The Geysers, near Calistoga CA. Near, in fact, old faithful, which is old but not particularly faithful. It is neither as regular nor as potent as it used to be.
Old Faithful is in Wyoming, which is two states (Utah and Nevada) away from California.
I'm not a hardware guy so I don't use HP scopes (do they even still make bench equipment?)
HP's spun off their scientific instruments, electronic test equipment, and a number of things, into Agilent Technologies about 20 years ago. Agilent still makes bench equipment, to the point that I have some pieces of HP/Agilent equipment that are identical except for the corporate logo on them (including having the same model number).
The CEO, Greg Rayburn, cut his and the three other top executives salary cut to $1 this year. How much more of a concession do you want?
As for the private equity firm, Ripplewood Holdings is going to lose most, if not all of the $170 million investment it made in Hostess.
So does it apply to ATVs?
It can cover ATVs, along with snowmobiles and boats. The law calls them out as examples of motor vehicles, however the law also allows the commissioner to exempt things other then cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
The Me-262 that Yeager shot down was preparing to land, it wasn't a dogfight.
This is super cool, if it works, but I'll shit golden sunshine before I let someone near my eyeball with a knife!
If you were blind would you care?
