... the productivity in Turkey went up by 237%
That's why I furiously masturbate in front of my webcam as much as possible. Now the poor sods have to watch. I exact my revenge any way I can get it.
Why not "gamify" the satelite feed and turn it into an action scene in your favorite FPS game? They can release it, on scoreboards pick the top 5% gamers and connect their consoles to the real world scenarios. Don't even need soldiers to do the work, no PTSD, nobody even knows. Next time your game is free to play, financed by DARPA grant, you know what you are doing
Last two years I've worked 100 hour weeks. 16 hours a day, 2 hours for commute / shower, 4-5 hours of sleep. 6 days a week, sometimes Sundays. I've counted 9000 hours in two years. Of course, now I am slowing down. But let me tell you one thing: 60 hour week is just a breeze. That would almost feel like vacation.
When people write shit like you, it is mostly just men. If you count all the things my mom had to do to take care of our family, she's worked this hard for at least 20 years of her life. It can be done and it is routinely done. Actually when I think of it, 90% of people before 1800 had worked like that. Farm life can be a bitch. So right keep whining. Don't understand how someone could call you insightful.
He would likely get several consecutive life sentences in US or even a death sentence. He would rot or die in jail.
The "crime" US wants him for is treason. His lawyers could argue that it carries a possibility of death penalty and therefore it is impossible for UK to hand him over. Sweden does not have such qualms. But UK can extradite him to Sweden because Sweden has no death penalty and the rape charge is much lesser charge.
Actually, Netflix is not tied to Comcast. Hulu is not tied. Yes, you got geographical restrictions, but they are easily worked around with a VPN. But here it is different. They will not even take your money. The only way to pay for it is to be Cable subscriber. That's just bad.
Let's say you are in France or Germany or even Canada for that matter. You can get the coverage from the local TV, but the problem is that there are so many events that no station follows all of them and they prefer the local athletes and those get the most coverage. So if you are interested in your own, you want the coverage specific to your own country. That is why you want to deal with NBC, you might be willing to pay even premium for the coverage of the event, but they don't sell.
They got year contracts. Also if you are outside of US, you cannot become a subscriber.
I've been snubbing comcast since 2007 and they have done this with every major event for years. They won't let you pay for it, the only way to get it is as cable subscriber. This should be illegal for sure. FCC should require them to have a payment option. Just charge $100 for the event coverage. NHL charges that much for the entire season of broadcasts. (Outside of US that is, inside it is $160.)
Actually, the combination of the first two results in a deep rooted unshakable self-confidence that is earned by overcoming diversity and the instilled insecurity. If even despite being told daily you cannot possibly succeed, you are not too good and you will amount to nothing, you get ahead, there is pretty much nothing anybody can tell you that would shake your confidence. Further, you will know the exact upper and lower limits of your skills, you will rarely misjudge your own ability and if you decide to do something, it is because you know you will succeed.
Compare this to whatever is being taught in american schools today. The false sense of confidence, that is standing on such flimsy basis, that it takes just couple words to bring any one of those kids to tears or unbalance them so much they won't really have a shot to compete against you, even if they were actually better. I actually see that as immature and imbalanced. Not sure how you reached your baseless conviction that it is the other way around.
I wish I had strong impulse control to compliment those first two. I can see clearly how it impairs me from reaching my full potential.
Until the world opened up in 1991, it was USA only. Once that happened, you have a healthy mix for couple years and since 2000, it is Russia, China and Poland only at the top spot. But check the top 10 and you will see which universities are the best.
But just try to hire people even around Sillicon Valley, in my entire professional life I met only one Russian programmer that was not excelent and he was educated in US since 5th grade.
All of those rankings have one fatal flaw, they put more than 50% weight on citations of articles or books by the staff of those universities published in English Language (No Russian, No Mandarin). If instead of focusing on the teachers, they focus on the students, the picture would be quite different.
I'd hire a student from those three schools over anybody who studied in any university in US, no questions asked. Especially over anyone who went to High School in US.
I don't think we are talking about Computer Science. There are three universities in Russia (1 in Moscow and 2 in St. Petersburg) that are all better in Computer Science than any university in US.
Ok, ok, just the executive branch of the US government then. Big difference.
