Why would anyone need videos from space when you can get them from helicopters and drones in better resolution?
I'd expect by now that browser plug-ins have replaced anything a toolbar could offer.
From myself having attended a university and earned a degree less than 8 years ago, I would say about 2/30 people were serious about learning anything, or about 3-5 people per class. No one knew what they wanted to do and no one knew why they were at college. All they knew was the "pass to make my parents proud" mentality. Art, philosophy, etc, these are all the most fun classes and a lot of people tend to go that way because "art" is more and more defined as whatever monstrosity you can dream up, instead of how skilled you are at creating something. If anything is making colleges insanely expensive and at the same time useless, it is that teachers pass everyone, and when people fail, they start grading on a curve so they are guaranteed to only fail 2 or 3 people. As a student, I loved grading on a curve because it always meant my grade went up, except one or two teachers who would use an actual curve, meaning instead of saying, everyone gets 10 points more, they would try to make only 5 people get As which was pretty ridiculous. My point is colleges are now more just somewhere to get away from parental supervision and party and passing is more a formality than an accomplishment. Sure you CAN fail, but most teachers are trying to be the "cool teacher" who curves every test, gives extra credit when your behind, and ignores your absences from class.
Of course string theory simulations are going to be correct because the theories were reversed engineered to fit the "solution," which is why there are so many string theories. It's like taking a clock you can't take apart and building a completely separate identical clock that matches the time. Sure you came up with a display that shows the same time as the first clock and can appear to be a duplicate of the clock, BUT the gears on the inside are actually engineered completely differently.
When the new cosmos touted the multiverse on their very first show as a fact I lost a lot of respect for the show. Glad to see that others are now agreeing that it is pseudo-science almost as much as the bible is until actually being falsifiable.
This is my actual experience just switching apartments with Comcast "You have the new X1 box so you have to pay for someone to come out install it at your new location" Me: "That's ok I can just plug it in myself", Comcast: "No you have to have someone come out to install it with these boxes." I just plug it it and it works.. they come out anyways and charge me $70.
And let you choose to search with the browser version. Because often times I want to view the browser version of sites and no matter how many settings I tweak on my phone I still get their "mobile" aka useless version of the sites.
Google should use different algorithms for different devices.
but without multiplayer, I don't see it competing with Minecraft meaningfully
Apple and other tech companies having an agreement not to hire each other's employees was evil, but when a school is involved many are saying that they should not be able to hire those from another company. Which one is right?! Tell me what to think!
I can't even remember the last time an advertisement online compelled me in favor of buying anything. Usually the only sponsored link I click is the one that is the number one search result in google anyways because I know what I need before I searched.
Just to add to your statement, non-black drug dealers refuse to deal with black men as well. Black men always pull guns and try to steal your cash or stash. The few black men who don't become the distribution for the rest of the black community.
I think the quoted text doesn't disagree with anything you said, it's point is that the skin color itself and racism has nothing to do with blacks being poor. The skin color of a black man from Africa and a black man from America does not land them in jail more often, does not keep them poor, whatever racism may exist does not limit their ability to prosper. What does limit abilities to prosper is speaking a different language, not understanding the local laws, and not having any support around you, yet despite all that, an African is more likely than a black American to go to the middle class. Having known single moms with minimum wage jobs, these people claiming to be held down by the system can stick their excuses up their *ss. For one, all children get free insurance so health problems are immediately a non-issue. Secondly, low-income housing is everywhere, if you or I wanted the exact same apartment as someone making under 60% of the median wage, we have to pay approximately double for the rent. But you say , how can we go to college? Well scholorships and loans are available to everyone no matter what. You don't need good grades, you don't need to be good at sports, you just need to have the desire to go and even then if your income is low enough, you only have to pay back 50% of your loans (which also pay for housing, food, books and tuition) not the whole amount. When someone says the system is to blame, it is the most ludicrous statement. America has the best system in the world for the poor.
Advertising based on browsing history is the worst kind of advertising. All it is, is advertisements for the same product you already bought when you searched for it 2 weeks ago. Seriously, it's almost like recommendations on youtube. Youtube, I just watched 30 minutes of fail videos but I don't want to watch them again every day of my life, thanks.
If you are on a website with a user name, I defend your right to act like an idiot. You act like an idiot and let the moderator of that specific website sort it out. But, if you are talking to people who actually exist, that you know, or even a celebrity and you make death threats or hateful comments, then I believe you should still be able to be prosecuted and fined at the least. The only problem is who is to say someone else wasn't using your user name, IP, or anything that could be hacked, spoofed, or simply left logged in on a library. I know we don't want to go South Korean and give everyone their own online identity cards, but there is a place for websites that require identities. Maybe they wouldn't be used or maybe a group of happy, polite people would emerge in those sites making them a new hub for kindness who knows.
