Would you guys mind taking this argument to somewhere where it's relevant?
Turns out that it's easy to measure the weather with a cell phone tower.
- If cell phone tower casts a shadow, the sun is shining.
- If tower is wet, it is raining.
- If tower is white, it is snowing
- If tower is swaying back and forth, there is a high wind.
Complaints of "no one is innovating anymore" followed closely by "look at BB, stupids, phones HAVE to be one handed and pocketable! No innovation allowed!"
To be fair, "let's make our smartphone bigger!" isn't exactly groundbreaking innovation. It's exactly what everybody else has been doing for a few years now.
Here's the raw XML behind that data. Turning that into verbiage isn't that hard.
Not hard, but does it actually make sense to do so? Serious question, since I don't read the reports in question, but if they're so standardized it would seem like it would be easier for everyone involved to just stick with a tabular format of some sort, rather than trying to translate it into a "written" report.
I've got a better idea: how about not requiring me to pay for somebody else's elective health care, regardless of whether it's for contraception or not, and regardless of what my religious beliefs (if any) are?
OP is a tourist, and there's a big difference between a tourist and a terrorist.
After going through customs a couple times, I'm pretty sure the US government considers them to be the same thing.
Do you really believe that an unemployed white guy is going to pick lettuce?
If the price is right, of course they will. Just because you're a lazy bastard doesn't mean everyone is.
But... they do!
A Brazillian refers to himself as American if using the english language.
It's kind of amusing that your link starts with the assertion: "America is the name of a whole continent."
Which is, of course, incorrect. There is no continent called America.
That's not discrimination. That's Progress.
As much as I hate "USian", what's the preferred alternative? American? America isn't a country, it's a pair of continents. Argentinians are no less American than New Yorkers are. Argentinians are no less American than New Yorkers are.
Nobody uses the term "American" to refer to a resident of one of the two American continents. That would be as dumb as referring to somebody as a "Eurasian", or an "Afro-European." Argentinians aren't "American;" if you insist on referring to them as residents of a continent, then they are "South Americans."
The "USian" name is an attempt by the PC brigade to solve a problem that doesn't actually exist. In English, the term "American" when applied to a person always refers to citizens of the United States of America.
Aside from the whole organic-3D-printing-of-entire-humans angle...
The article doesn't actually describe anything similar to 3D printing either. The justification for calling it that is pretty much: 3D printing involves assembling a final product from raw materials; the proposal also involves assembling a final product from raw materials; therefore we're talking about 3D printing.
In general the idea is interesting -- although it's hardly new, and we're so far from the technology level required to do it that it's still in the realm of science fiction -- but the 3D printing angle is nonsense.
If people don't want to die a a horrid painful death they should choose their parents better
If people don't want to die a horrid painful death, they should avoid being born in the first place. What do you think most of us have to look forward to in the last couple years of our lives?
Not to sound cold, but this type of situation a good example for why you should make a living will.
Does this poor lady want to go on tied to machines or does she want to be unplugged? The choice should be hers, but without knowing her wishes, that makes it a no-win situation.
Since she's conscious and communicating, presumably they could just ask her.
Reason we don't? No one thought of it when everyone was signing the agreements not to do weapons stuff in space.
... and it's really difficult (takes an awful lot of energy) to fly something into the sun. And it's wasting what will in the future be a valuable resource. Not to mention that no matter how safe your rocket design is, strapping your nuclear waste on top of hundreds of tons of explosives is inherently more risky than putting it into a hole in the ground.
The idea is nothing new; I'm sure people have been bandying it about since the first nuclear power plants came online. But it's really not a good idea.
Just because one set of criminals gets off easier than they should, it does not follow that all other criminals should be treated leniently.
