And since you are the only one and since I don't have you in friends, I don't have any friends on Google+, so why would I be there?
Two factories make toilet paper, one introduces robots and doubles its production and also profit margins, the number of employees stays the same. There is no impact to those employees, but the other factory goes out of business. That is where the jobs get lost and that is what the study does not measure. Same amount of toilet paper is produced at twice efficiency and half of the jobs get lost in the overall economy.
When I say I am in mood for strawberry, I mean strawberry, not beetle wings. Is that really so much to ask?
... but if they really want to clean up their act, they have to stop their partnership with Nestle right now.
Bay Area has shit public transport and highways that only work at times you don't need them. (Outside of 6am to 9am and 4pm to 7pm) So you always end up being stuck somewhere. And everything is too far. People from San Francisco will almost never travel out of the city, for example. You almost have to blackmail them to do it. You might be 20 minutes away from open country, but if you would actually leave work hour early and go there, its 2 hours to get from work to home and 2 hours to get from home to anywhere outside Bay Area. So its dark before you get anywhere.
Joking aside. Actually yes. It would absolutely surprise me. For the following two reasons:
1) British have lost all spine in 2003 with Iraq. Since then UK is a colony of US and nobody even protests or dares to. If the British do a single act of defiance to the US government that does not actually prove to be a result of infighting within the US government, then we can talk. Until then, no.
2) The paper is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who is one of the owners of US. A group of wealthy people who control both the US government actions and the media, sidestepping the pesky 1st amendment. But he does not, in fact, directly control UK government, except as a proxy through the US government.
I hope this explanation helps you to understand the situation better and addresses your "no insight" comment.
Ooops, yes.... of course... it was the British... totally.... trust us... they did it completely on their own.... silly me.
USA does not need a proof! If we say something you have to trust us! We are the good guys! You hate to trust us! Why would we lie? We are always right! How do you even dare to ask for proof? Traitor. Terrorist! We are coming for you!
When you hold the Surface 3, in both hands, you are blocking half of the air flow, I am wondering how fast is the speed going to be after an hour with partially blocked air flow. Because if I need to have it set on a table, it is not a tablet, but a laptop.
Next version of iPhone adds a feature that will allow up to 10 foreign powers to listen to your phone calls at the same time.
How can you post a video with such a horrible sound. Wouldn't it be possible to agree with the interviewee to use a decent microphone?
Finally! There's something that apparently virtually all people around the world can actually agree upon. Unfortunately, it's on par conceptually with handing out hydrogen bombs as lottery prizes. If the drumbeat isn't actually coordinated, it might as well be.
Actually why don't we make lying by elected official a crime punishable by life in prison without possibility of parole. Let's also include election campaigns into it.
We all saw this "news" on Sunday in Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. And you got to all this length of stealing the bit and posting it on slashdot just to miss the punchline? Well, for those who have not seen it here it goes:
"Only a FIFA official could be corrupt enough to think the Onion article is not a joke, but something that could actually happen."
For example in San Ramon, CA, where I live, 123k household income puts you in the 50% range. It is actually exactly the median income for the city in 2012. Now that is 40 min commute to Google HQ. If you want to live closer, it is even worse... FYI.
