After all, the NSA has a fleet of its own satellites with far better image resolution capability than the DigitalGlobe effort.
Actually, that would be the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).
The BMI ranges are more-or-less supposed to be the same for men and women
Breasts are mostly fat tissue, the rest is not muscle. Women have fat tissue in the hips that is healthy weight compared to men. Other than that, we are equal. BMI is NOT supposed to be the same between genders. We may be equal in many areas including software engineering and whatever else the government calls "illegal discrimination," but "child gestation," "child birth," and "breastfeeding" area areas in which we are most definitely NOT equal and in which extra fat gives females a distinct advantage comparing female to male BMI. Remember, we have different roles in reproduction and evolution.
When I was active duty U.S. Air Force, they gave females an extra 4% body fat in any given age group to account for that. Seemed to be fair and accurate given the women in my age group at the time.
Congress authorized military action in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Maybe you weren't paying attention.
Article 1, section 8 of the U.S. Constitution states:
The Congress shall have Power... To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
Congress did not declare war. They authorized military action, but lacked the balls to declare war. This is a very important distinction per the GP post:
Bush started at least two major wars with no declaration of war.
Obviously a lot of people want to learn how to breakdance. That's what Surface tablets are for, right? I watch a lot of tv commercials
I remember those stupid break dancing Surface commercials. My wife asked me "what the fuck is Microsoft selling?" She is smart and understands technology, even if she is not a nerd like me. Anyway, I had to say that I am not entirely sure. It is something that combines the worst features of a tablet and a laptop, and is marketed in a way that Freddie Mercury would call "too gay."
I have to admit that the Android commercials are dumb too, but not that dumb. At least they are halfway interesting. But what Microsoft (and Google to a lesser extent) did not understand is that say what you will about Apple, they understand marketing. Make the product simple, and advertise how easy it is to do stuff that people want to do. Microsoft should have been showing their Surface with the disembodied hand using Word, Excel, etc. and getting shit done that office folk care about. C-levels everywhere would have had instant boners, and millions of dollars in revenue would have ensued.
Instead, we are left wondering "what does break dancing have to do with computing?" and "what does 'scroogled' mean?" Microsoft just do not get marketing. They are too used to cramming shitty products down our throats because they can, that once we do not need them anymore, they are lost and cannot compete on merit alone.
Unfortunately decades of trying to get deadbeats to pay up means that the laws are very strict, and you are correct that everyone involved was stupid for thinking they could just throw together their own contract without bothering to check their state's laws on the subject.
The one thing that is very important to remember is there is a party here that the biological parents are NOT representing, but the state is: the child. The reason why the laws are strict as they are is that this is not about a husband/wife or mother/father contract, it is about what is best for the child. The lesbians and the father are being selfish and not doing what is best for the child. THAT is why the state is involved.
Source: I pay over $850 per month in child support and have been involved in multiple legal proceedings involving said parenting rights and child support.
Yeah, I wouldn't care to be one of those gambling my health on the foodless diet...
I did it for a few weeks with good results. Lost weight, increased energy, felt better overall. More information.
I buy rapeseed oil preferentially. My daughter has peanut allergies, so it is a decent alternative to peanut oil for high-heat.
Grapeseed oil is also good. Cheaper than rapeseed, very neutral taste, and a high smoke point near that of peanut oil.
This guy is selling his Soylent brand ***FOOD*** to 20,000 people to the tune of $ 2 Million, isn't it time FDA takes some samples and have them tested for safety ?
It is produced in an FDA-approved processing facility using FDA-approved ingredients and processes. The product itself does not need to be tested any more than any other random food product needs to be. If you read his web site you would know this.
FDA is more concerned with perishable foods such as raw meat, vegetables, and processes. Since the facility and its machines are already approved, Soylent gets a basic glance over its ingredients and processes and the final product is not tested. You would actually be surprised how much food is not tested. For example, General Mills has its ingredients and facilities inspected and approved, but the FDA is not in the business of eating random cereals to make sure they are safe.
It is the middle of the freakin winter too.
Not sure if I am feeding a troll here, but it is currently (January 2014) the middle of the summer in the southern hemisphere.
Unless there are roaming gangs of white nerdy kids beating up anyone with the wrong color that I haven't heard of.
Wrong race. In my experience, whites are one of several minorities in Computer Science. Both in my B.S. and M.S., more than half of my classmates were Hindu males.
... we are way past the year of Linux in your pocket.
A Linux that Android users neither see nor use, a Linux that most Android developers neither see nor use. Linux is just hosting the Android environment.
Sort of like the Linux on my desktop. Linux is not a GUI, it is a kernel. The last time I "saw Linux" was a kernel panic about a year ago.
I agree - anyone ever getting any real replies on those sites?
I did - from my (now) wife.
The GPL works in servers because the money isn't in the software, its in hosting and hardware. it works in embedded because Google is able to make money from ads (and they refuse to go near GPL V3 as they lock down more and more of Android) but just as you will NEVER in a million years see a triple A video game that is GPL so too will Linux go nowhere on the desktop thanks to GPL.
I'll just leave this here..
That game was open sourced after id Software made millions of dollars from it, and after their next game was released. I do believe the discussion is about releasing a new AAA game using the GPL.
