did you even read the wiki you linked to? You only need to get to the second sentence to find out that tailgating is only a factor in 1/3rd of rear-end collisions. I'm not saying that all of the other 2/3rds are caused by bad drivers slamming on their brakes and being an unpredictable danger on the road, but certainly some of them are.
He used a psychiatrists password, which was overheard by a patient. Still not a good system, but not as bad as if any patients username/password could be used.
I'm not American, so the point is moot, but I like to think at least some of my ancestors were the best. If letting in immigrants to due grunt work is whats best for America, then that's what it should do. My point was that they do not owe equality to non-citizens.
I don't see any reason why America needs equality of opportunity for immigrants when it doesn't even have it for its own citizens. Take only the best and do whats best for your country.
The greatest scientists of our generation will not be truly known until many years from now, when we can look back on the contributions with a greater understanding of the truth.
RIANZ has paid 250k in total, the 616 dollars represents the result of the first case. They have sent out notices to roughly 6000 alleged infringers though. So if we assume that 616 is an average results ( I know that a sample of one is not very representative ), then we can expect that they will pull in 616*6000 which is approximately 3.7 million dollars. Lets wait til the dust settles to start scoring winners and losers.
My university includes a middle initial to reduce duplicate names. When there is no middle initial, or it does not solve the uniqueness problem it will start enumerating the user names, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
The goal of the research is to use such a model of the brain to understand the effects of different drugs and therapies. Provide insight into how/what the next advances in medical science will bring.
I'm aware of the rational behind laws and fines. My point is not that the fine should be lower, but that because of penalties record companies seek (millions) that we already consider a 100x fine to be low.
This fine is only low compared to the ridiculous claims being made by the record companies. The actual cost of the music was less than 6$, so this works out to paying a penalty of roughly 100 times the value of the material he 'stole'.
The birds probably notice that the potential mate is malnourished and 13% underweight before they start calculating fractal dimensions.
The publishers don't actually do that. They outsource the selection of 'good' papers to unpaid volunteers.
I agree completely, but I think that 1) follows directly from 2). I am an early career researcher, and I want to be publishing open source. The reason I do not, is because I need to be sure that I can get research grants and tenure positions later in life. I would like to see a high profile institution start a policy that they only hire candidates with at least one open source publication, that could really get the ball rolling.
I would probably get my plague vaccine, and then continue avoiding my flu shots.
Religion is a red-herring in this story, if a nurse has the option to refuse a vaccine it should be for any personal reason. The question that I am the most interested in, is if the hospital has a similar policy for their doctors. If the vaccine is so obviously positive, then surely every doctor on staff would also have it. If every doctor has it and agrees that it is good, then I fully support mandatory vaccinations for nurses. I suspect however, that this is not the case, and that the mandate for vaccination is coming from somebody on the business management side of the hospital rather than somebody on the healthcare side of things.
