Are the poles on public ride of way. If so then to bad for AT&T.
"Besides, without an atmosphere, who'll care?" Just one of the many much bigger problem that I was talking about. That and earth exploding and the sun going out.
Some lumps of moderator at the bottom of the tank will not really be an issue. Of course a massive family of tornados could hit a wind farm and the blades could take out every elementary school of a city and kill of the children.
AKA your fears are will in the super freakish events area that are in the same range of probability of a meteor strike.
Yes but the molten salt and the storage container will act as heat sinks. The fuel is in the mass of the salt and not contained in the fuel rods. Not to mention that the fuel is already melted so no worry about a meltdown damaging the fuel rods. No water to boil, the fuel is in the coolant, and no possible steam explosion and it all works at one atmosphere.
The design uses a "salt" plug that is cooled. Cooling shuts off the plug melts and the fuel drains into a tank that lacks a moderator so the reaction stops. There is no water to boil and fuel is already melted. It will then cool and solidifies.
As long as you have gravity then you are good. Now if all of a sudden gravity stops working then we have much bigger problems.
Probably not. If you put that much hope into one man, even the president of the US you will be disappointed. Need to change congress first.
Here you go http://www.obdev.at/products/vusb/index.html
vusb is a USB stack for the AVR line of chips. They even have a diagram of how to wire it up. You could also just use any number of micros that come with a USB interface.
As to the number of parts needed to blink an LED using the USB port... You could do it really simply with this http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/ICs/FT232R.htm
I think that the issue that Nazis are bad has been solved to the vast majority of people. I am not saying that this is an ideal solution but it is one that the German people have chosen. I do not know if you are German but I am not so I really do not get the right be part of their system. All I can say is I do not find this really evil and that I can understand why they have taken that path.
It is kind of like when people ask why the US is so hard on sexual content compared to violence in media.
To me that is a simple answer. Parents are far more afraid of their kids getting pregnant or catching a STD than being shot. What is funny is that they are right in that danger assessment.
While the US has some shared history the US did not have to deal with what Germany did. Had France and the UK had just gone along with the US's plan for a "Just Peace" after WWI their might not have been a WWII. Instead the allies decided to punish the central powers.The US was in a different position at the end of WWII including the total defeat of Germany and Japan. That allowed for a far more just and long lasting piece and Germany and Japan becoming Allies with the allies and not future enemies.
As i said if modern German does not have the a combination of fear and anger when seeing a Neo-Nazi then they they are just stupid or evil. Frankly even in the US I think people should have the same feelings. Also I think that if you say it can never happen here you are not really helping. That attitude should be "I will never stand by and let that happen here" or in Germany "happen here again".
I have faith that Germany can work this out. While from my point of view in the US this law goes over the top Germany is not the US. I want to believe that there are enough good people in Germany, a strong enough democratic tradition, and a proper education level that such a thing will never happen again.
The good news is that Judges hate to reverse other judges and odds are very high that Google will have IBM on there side.
Funny things but very rarely do I see anyone trying to convince anyone that their view point is wrong. Most often I see people yelling, insulting, and preaching to the choir.
You keep using that word but I do not think you know what it means.
Sigh.... You just don't get it.
The Japanese where demonized because of Pearl Harbor and the attacks on the US mainland. Germany was also demonized. Italy was less so but still demonized. Italy switched sides pretty early in the war so they had to be humanized. You really should look at the movies of the time as well as comic books and cartoons. Again you just do not get it. You are trying to demonize the people in the US that did this without understanding why you might have done the same thing. You are looking to make yourself feel superior because you are so sure that you would never do the same. That is a dangerous tactic and one that is all too common today in history classes. Think of it this way. FDR was one of the most liberal and progressive world leaders of the time. Why was he okay with this?
No it was not the right thing to do. However it is understandable how it happened and how good people would make that choice at that time.
Yea so you do not just feel secure in ignoring them. Actually wanting to destroy someone that you do not fear just because you disagree with them is frankly evil. That is what Nazis do. Really think about it for a minute. If they are no threat why not just ignore them? Simple answer is you worry about them becoming a threat.
AKA there is no shame in not feeling secure in Germany about Neo-Nazis. In fact if you where just okay with it I would worry. It has happened before and that knowledge should keep you on your guard.
BTW my Uncle was reported killed in action twice in Europe during WWII and had a terrible scar on his arm from where his watch branded him his tank caught fire and helped liberate one of the camps. He was from Brooklyn his however his grandparents on both sides where from Germany. He died in the 1980s but I think he would for the most part be happy with how Germany is today.
The internment camps where not death camps. The US did not intern all Japanese and did intern many Germans and Italians.
What will prevent it happening again is for History teachers to start teaching history instead of political doctrine.
I had a friend who went to Dartmouth. Her history professor brought in a woman that survived Hiroshima as a child. It was to teach that the US where monsters and dropped the bomb because the US was racist.
The same teacher never mentioned the rape of Nanking, the Bataan death match, or Japans use of biological and chemical weapons in China. When teaching about the internment camps they never talk about the Niihau incident, the bombing of Washington state, or the shelling of Long Beach by Japan.
When will we prevent something like that again? When we understand that the people of that time where not monsters and that if we where put in the same position and had the same knowledge that they had we would probably do the same thing. AKA we need to stop thinking we are better than they where and be grateful that we can learn from their mistakes.
