I am not sure that is a word...but it should be.
the United States government has declared all musical instruments to be illegal contraband
Well, I would hope that it meant that one asshole did something stupid and is going to be disciplined for it. But, unfortunately, you never know anymore..,and that isn't gonna get this guy his stuff back.
The way I understand tinnitus, I don't think it would make a difference.
Here's what I know: Our inner ears contain hair cells which would normally be responsible for perceiving specific frequencies when stimulated by the basilar membrane inside the cochlea (which is simulated by the 3, tiny bones which are stimulated by the attached ear drum, which is stimulated by...you get the idea.). With tinnitus, however, some of these hair cells are damaged and can no longer detect vibrations. As a result, the accompanying neurons associated with those damaged cells become "hungry" for stimulation because the brain sends an increasing level of "outbound" signal since it never receives any "inbound" signal, thereby causing the ringing sound we hear...a "loop" of information, if you will. This is very similar to the phantom-limb pain we can feel after having lost an arm or leg; this situation also causes the associated part of the brain to stop receiving signals from the amputated or damaged limb and the increased level of outbound signal causes (severe, in many cases) pain. Tinnitus works the same way, but on a much smaller scale because fewer neurons are left wanting, plus we still have many hair cells remaining which function normally and help "drown out" the ringing.
So, by that rationale I imagine that the ringing would be much more apparent initially but would eventually be drowned out by the sounds perceived by the working cells, like heart beat, breathing and digestion. Then when those sounds are not enough, our brain starts creating "phantom" stimulus which causes the hallucinations.
In short, I would think the answer is no.
in some historical periods it would not have been uncommon for some children to be biologically unrelated to either of their legal parents
tomtomtom.....you are not the father of this post.
Me, to some kid I work with upon him telling me he did that...with his company email login....(which is his network login). And. Nobody. Cared.
.if you have 10 American programmers, you will find 2 good ones, 4 okay, and the rest mediocre. This is the same with Indians. The number of programmers are high, so the number of mediocre programmers are also high
I work for a company that doesn't outsource much development. But, I work with a lot of customers that do outsource it. So I frequently work in between (mostly American) devs and (frequently) Indian ones.I cannot agree with this statement more. We have good and bad devs...and sometimes the Indian devs are great, and sometimes they are not.
Nobody (outside of us) upgrades the firmware on their home router; They run it from factory until death, then buy another one. These devices will be vulnerable for the foreseeable future.
It wouldn't matter if they did. They aren't gonna patch the firmware for any of the affected routers anyway.
There are 2 of us....this is troubling.
