I just can't imagine a lightweight electrical drone having a delivery radius of more than 2-3 miles. A moving base station would make these drones much more more efficient.
I just had a crazy idea. Imagine a delivery truck driving down a major highway (or side road as they would probably have to be going slowly) while drones flock back and forth from the truck, picking up packages and delivering them to nearby houses. You could cover several parallel streets at once.
Or how about just install a decent intelligent voice system/menu. Every car system I've ever used has been crap-tastic. "Call Dave", you said "Call Carl, calling carl...ring.. ring. ", Crap (press cancel), "Main menu, what would you like to do". (press cancel). "Calling Carl.. ring ring."..
I already travel twice a week, the Queen travels more than me and does a lot of public speaking while being burdened with not embarrassing the country if she personally makes a mistake. I wouldn't be as willing to take her place.
Because they aren't claiming to be the "British police".
Satanism on government property is the blatant promotion of perversion given implicit government approval, and obviously should not be permitted.
Satanism is not promotion of perversion, did you even read the Satanic bible? Geeze.
Where does OP mention requiring Skype?
Where does OP mention a laptop?
Doesn't support Skype.
Clearly based on the criteria you provided, you meant a Windows Surface Tablet.
And each and every guy who stays silent while another guy makes sexist remarks, is telling women that sexist behavior is perfectly fine by him.
Assuming you're correct (and I'm not convinced): I wouldn't have expected females to be so judgemental. Personally, I try to avoid conclusions without more concrete information. As we already have business classes on sexual harassment, sexist remarks etc. Perhaps we need a new one on judgement and generalizations? Such classes could help the divide between male and female ratios if they're the root cause.
Who in their right mind would WANT to work somewhere where they can't trust their colleagues not to make their life miserable?
In my experience, there seems to be always one person, doesn't matter if it's in McDonalds or doing consulting work for one of the biggest tech companies. I don't think anyone
Nah mate. I just bought myself a new computer, monitor and a year worth of VPS and a domain name with bitcoin.
Show me in the block chain where this happened.
For example, sending money internationally to relatives, an $850 billion market, has an average fee of 9% from places like Western Union.
If you use a HSBC bank account, you can freely transfer between your own multi-national accounts for free and then do a transfer at the cost of a 'local country' transfer (in some countries, a local bank transfer doesn't cost anything). If you are a smart person, you would use these accounts for transferring money to relatives.
This is probably less expensive than the conversion fees and cuts that Bitcoin exchanges would take and any additional payment provider system to get that money to the person would (since it appears most Bitcoin exchanges don't handle currency themselves, but instead use payment services).
That market is just begging to be undercut by bitcoin.
Bitcoin needs to undercut decent banks like HSBC, I don't see that happening unless people are paying everything through Bitcoin.
However, it takes time to set up a network of currency exchangers, something Western Union already has. Give it a few years.
I suspect by then, many of the international banks would have duplicated HSBC's offerings which would compete well against this. I also suspect Western Union will take different business approaches to counter this as well.
The document said the people who were being followed, had very few contacts with terrorism and that they were speaking to non radicals in an attempt to get them to join them.
I still remember when I made that decision: going for a job interview as a programmer and being told that all the guys like making sexist jokes, and that I'd have to be OK with that.
I can understand that isn't a fun environment. On the upside, at least he told you about it before you even started. I suspect some places wouldn't even consider that being an issue.
Some of the comments here show that the culture still isn't women-friendly in a lot of places.
I'm the sort that really just wants to get the job done well with best talent and soon with the least amount of friction from people.
It only takes one jerk allowed to speak their mind to make a workplace unbearable.
As a male, I run into this problem on some projects. Although not generally related to sexism, the person just has an objectionable personality.
Why aren't you explaining the reality of the situation then?
It's funny because it's so 'obvious' but apparently nobody here appears to have concrete information one way or another, are you some sort of troll?
