Vaccines are effective. Safe? I guess you can call crossing the street in a crosswalk safe. Some people do get run over and killed but most come out OK. Not as safe as simply not walking around lots of cars. But safer than jaywalking.
Sapphire is the linchpin component in one of the two known processes for making blue and white LEDs. The other is CREE's gallium nitride process. If you could make sapphire cheaply enough it would be the dominant process for LED lighting.
too bad the Osprey will crash on the way to delivering it.
So why hasn't Steyn demanded the data under ordinary discovery rules? FOIA is an odd way to go about getting data you're supposedly entitled to in order to defend yourself in court.
Why is capacitive touch so important?
Because it, well, works. The older tech worked poorly when it worked at all and suffered a much higher rate of failure.
That's how I'd handle it. If they want patch reports, that's reasonable. If they want you to patch the test environment a week ahead so that the devs can check for problems and alert you not proceed, that's reasonable too.
If they want to micromanage your tiny components of your job they can get bent and good luck finding a replacement. No preapproval for routine systems administration activity.
That's the thing The capacitive multitouch screen makes tablets practical. Before that they were just toys. Nokia made the right call for the time.
The idea then was that the country's military power should be retained individually by its citizens. They wanted legal barriers against a concentration of power under a central authority.
Things haven't exactly worked out that way. Lincoln was the beginning of the end: with intentions pure he demonlished the concept of state's rights. Roosevelt's New Deal put the final nail in the coffin. And really, which individuals would you pick to keep one of the nukes in the barn stall next to the chicken coop?
On the other hand, things like crazy Cliven Bundy's fight with the Federal Bureau of Land Management are probably a healthy part of Jefferson's "Eternal Vigilance." That couldn't happen without guns and a viable threat of violence against otherwise unsympathetic bureaucrats.

It's very Science. You tinker with the disease so it'll no longer kill you and then expose yourself so that your autoimmune response will be triggered. This results in antibodies ready to fight off the full strength version should you ever come in contact with it.
That's what a vaccine is.
The concept was discovered back when someone thought to wonder why milk maids always had smooth skin. It turned out they didn't get smallpox like everybody else. But every one of them caught smallpox's weaker cousin, cowpox, early in life.
Catch is, tinkering with a disease so it won't kill you is only about 99.999% successful. The other 0.001% of the time it kills you anyway. So you don't want to take a vaccine for every conceivable disease... just for those you're likely to come in to contact with.
The reason computer security jobs go begging is that anyone competent to run the checklists is bored to tears by them and perfectly competent at so many other things.
We want to reduce the schedule and reduce the toxins.
Er... a vaccine is generally a weakened form of the actual disease you're trying to protect against. It's a little concept called "immunotherapy." One doesn't create a vaccine by running away from toxins, one embraces the toxins in a manner that stimulates the body to protect itself.
I use scripts wrapped around tried-and-true tar for my backups. And since I routinely build new servers from backups of a comparable one, I know they work.
Does anybody still use the fsdump utilities for their filesystem? Did anyone ever?
I have a laptop loaded with books and some portable solar panels to charge it. My plan is to locate some survivalists and suggest that if they get me through year one, what I bring will see them through years two through ten. Do they want to scrape out an existence as hunter-gatherers or do they want to LIVE?
We went from Edison to Google in only a century. With knowledge preserved, civilization and its comforts can be rebuilt in less than a lifetime.
Assuming I survive being within 10 miles of a probable ground zero for any apocalypse, of course. And hopefully they don't shoot first.
I call B.S. NSA contractors operated thousands of systems with sensitive NSA data running the affected versions of openssl. It's extraordinarily unlikely that they'd have intentionally left a certain important body part swinging in the breeze for years for the sake of an advantage over adversaries. it would have been an insanely gutsy move, the kind requiring you to judge your adversary's data more valuable than your own.
