The test shows that the machine, not the Model S, could only handle four cars of force.
Since the universe is infinite
We're talking smart phones here, not Black Berries.
Outputs can be inputs as well.
Uh oh, 19% of $40,000 is not $2,200, it's $7,600. That gives you $22,400 as the final take away, only $700 more than the first example you gave.
Same calculation knowing that the solar constant for Earth (1 AU) is approx 1 kW/m2 results in a 137 W/m2 on Ceres (put on top of it the 20% efficiency of a photovoltaic and you'll get... what... 27 W/m2?)
Isn't part of the 1kW/m2 on Earth due to the atmosphere absorbing some of the energy? Ceres wouldn't have that problem. Still, that distance-squared reduction would still create issues.
Did I miss the news where Microsoft said they weren't allowing other companies to release products with Windows8? Seriously, this is just Microsoft showing off how they envision Windows8 implementation, not shutting out everyone else. The main stink I've heard from OEMs is along the lines of, "We push generic, shitty hardware and the Surface doesn't look like that. Microsoft is going to make our product look bad."
That's not that astounding of a claim to make. There are only a handful of antes in our solar system that are rocky, and there wasn't necessarily evidence to support plate tectonics on those other planets. Now, if the claim had been that there weren't plate tectonics anywhere else in the galaxy, then yes, that would be quite a bold claim.
...but there is a law requiring that they keep a copy of all such signs and give then to police when asked...
I was with you up until that point. This whole case is about whether or not the law actually requires that. Twitter is arguing that they do not have that responsibility under the law.
You give them breaks!?
You obviously don't understand that 10^30 is nowhere near 1/2 of 10^52. It's practically nonexistent on that scale.
Catching a ball is a feedback mechanism. See where the ball is, compare to where the ball was, move (hands or feet, depending on how far off you are). Repeat as necessary.
It's also a feature that you're on call 24/7, right?
There's no reason you have to answer work calls outside of your scheduled work hours. If they want you on call 24/7 then ask for compensation.
I had the luck of not getting into AP English during my eleventh year of public education. Instead, I ended up in the lower honors English course. The students in the AP English course read all the books that were going to be on the final AP test and learned how to do well on the test by taking multiple practice AP exams throughout the year. The class I was in was required to read a short essay or story, one to five pages, and then write a 1,000 to 1,500 word essay on the reading. This was a weekly assignment with readings being assigned on Mondays and written responses due the following Monday. We would receive grades, edits and comments from the previous week on Mondays as well. The grades were simply minus, check or plus. Three times a semester we had scheduled individual meetings with the teacher to discuss our writing, but he was available to discuss writing after class or during lunch most days. At the end of the year we were required to compile a writing packet where we included all of our weekly writing assignments along with four that we chose to rewrite. We were also asked to include a one page justification on our expectation for a final grade. This packet constituted two-thirds of the final grade. I feel that each of us in that English class leaned much more useful English skills than the AP class.
I think there needs to be a combination of higher pay and actually evaluating and promoting/firing teachers based on their performance. As far as I understand, it is quite difficult to be fired from teaching after one's been employed to tenure, which should be gotten rid of. As for the pay issue, I know plenty of intelligent people who spent the time to get post-graduate degrees who would not teach k-12 because they can get significantly more income through other occupations.
