If you want folds and crinkly dissolves, you use a flip chart.
Not really. It's stereotyping people based on religion, not race. Very different thing, even if there is a statistical correlation.
I don't think this school really cares about the league table. People who want to send their children there do not do so because of the tables.
Yes, it's a government-required standardised test. Administered by the exam board OCR. I'm guessing OCRs agreement is something along the lines of OCR turning a blind eye and the school not starting legal action that could run for years and embarrass everyone involved.
So basically, the Jewish Amish.
Isolation. Geographic, mate choice, breeding season. Lots of factors can cause two nearly-identical populations to stop interbreeding, and divergence follows from there. That's simplified, of course. Species is something of an artificial concept - there are things like ring species that show just how hard it can be to classify.
Because to the fundamentalist, it's an all-or-nothing thing. If you accept evolution, you have to throw out the story in Genesis - but if you do that, how can you be sure the rest happened? How can you be sure the story is right about the flood, or the slavery of the hebrews in egypt, or the exodus event, or the settlement of Israel, or all the prophets that followed? If you accept that one part of the holy text is a lie, then you open the whole thing up to doubt.
Pet projects, and occasionally restrictions on funding. I wouldn't be at all surprised if someone tries to sneak in a clause saying none of the money may be spent on climate change research or something of that nature.
Lets see how this comes out of the congressional sausage factory before we get too excited. Much of the spending is going to be contested. Budgets are also common places to stick unpopular riders, so there will probably be a few nasty surprises snuck in.
At a guess: It uses a different essid, but runs at the same channel/frequency as the customer's wifi. Retuning a transceiver is a slow process, it's not practical to jump between channels every packet, and multiple transceivers would raise the cost.
You underestimate the importance of rhetoric. A solid position can easily lose out in public perception to a pack of lies skillfully presented and tied in with the audience's defining values. Creationism is a very good example of that. Scientifically it's been dismissed more ways than I can describe - hundreds of independant avenues of scientific investigation all confirm it's a load of rubbish. Yet it remains very popular in the US, because supporters have been able to present it as an essential part of christianity - and it'll take more than the combined knowledge of all fields of science to convince most people to give up something as self-defining as their religion. The anti-vax movement can exploit something perhaps even more powerful, the parential protective instinct.
Debate and public perception isn't about arguments. They are only a part of the debate, and not even the most important part at that. Humans are not rational creatures.
The idea isn't to change their mind. Some minds cannot be changed. The idea is to stop them convincing anyone else.
Sometimes mockery is also required. Responding to lies with truth can easily create the impression of a debate of two respectable sides, when the more accurate perception is that one has arguments and the other has cheating and manipulation. In that situation, it's not enough to just point out the errors: They must be mocked without mercy to make it clear that the position is not only wrong, but so wrong as to be laughable and not worthy of any respect.
It's an idea, but it would be prone to mistakes. Some innocent person gets the coins in a transaction, and finds they are now suspect. Add in a tumbler or take it to a bitcoin casino (You'd only need one ignoring the blacklist or late on their updates) and hundreds of people suddenly have tainted wallets.
Because the hackers can launder the coins. Sell them to unsuspecting people, who find their new coin is worthless. Donate them to charities, so any blacklisting project inadvertantly blocks them too.
