Well, you must be seated. Move around and the time will settle to a value...
China bought the vacuum stage, no wonder they look similar....;)
$300 million? Looks like payola to me, how can they possibly spend that much?
Someone in another country can easily setup a multivariate look-up grid of the kind 23andMe uses to show how various genetic patterns correlate to various aspects of your health or intelligence.. In fact 23andMe can open source their method and many people will provide this service, some for free, some for fee.
I assume a cable hangs from the tray to the desktop? I suggest adding some climbing vines, with pots, so it looks natural. You can also add a few spider monkeys to go up and down the cables, and their poop will fertilize the vines after you scrape it off everything??
The basic problem with trays is the cable from tray to desk.
If you used a dropped ceiling (aka ceiling plates), you could have a high BW bidirectional infra-red network from overhead to desk. In fact, with a few bidirectional emitters you might cover the office very well with even less intrusion, http://www.fraunhofer.de/en/press/research-news/2012/october/wireless-data-at-top-speed.html
With IR reflectivity on all surfaces, coverage will come easy. The surface could look different at visible wavelengths for aesthetic reasons.
We pay a varied tax per mile in gas taxes. Larger cars use more gas = more tax. All this will do is make every mile cost the same in tax and remove any incentive to more efficient cars, and electric cars?
They can mandate this be built into the car computer with an antenna built into the plastic of the dash. You could cover the antenna area with tinfoil, but then the conflict between the traditional odometer and the GPS one would make them wonder how you were able to travel so far underground?
All part of the same voracious tax grab mentality that has been wrecking Europe for decades
Back in the 1800's, in the USA/Canada you could stake a 16 hectare claim(more or less, acres etc) and it was your patent land surface a mineral rights forever.
The land cost nothing to keep, so craft people staked and staked and staked and in time had all the good land. They did nothing, but if you worked it, you earned half the gold etc.
This egregious abuse led to a renewal fee and work requirement.
In Quebec, the 16 hectares costs $53 to stake and every 2 years you pay the $53 again (this fee escalates with inflation). Before the 2 years elapses, you must perform $1200 worth of work. If you fail to do the work or pay the fee, the land reverts to the government and in 30 days they allow it to be staked again - you must wait 60 days.
So if they do this, for the same 16 hectare plots and the same work, if Bigelow grabs large tracts = large fees, and he is nor rich enough to grab the whole moon which 37.9 million square KM or 3,790 Billion Hectares or 237 billion 16 Hectare claims times $1200 = $284 trillion to renew every 2 years (choke). So let him stake a little land, and others can stake other areas
They did a reasonable job in making a movie just under 2 hours. Those who have read the book know how it has been reduced - as it would take about 20 hours to do a good job in a movie.
That said, those that have read the book can see the film in an understandable manner. Those who have not read the book will have large gaps in their comprehension.
Twas ever thus, in making films from books. If you have ever read a James Bond text only movie script, you will see a 30-40 page book, while the source novels are a lot larger - but not huge.
I think the problem is film is limited to a pace of human scale and time frames, books are not.
I would like to see the time period for free access go to zero, as fast as it can by government edict.
After all, they started at 12 months in 2008 - why not decrease the wait time from 2008 by one month per year = now 7 months to zero.
That will give journals time to adjust.
Yes, new technology at the time. WW1 resulted in a huge effort to stamp out radio amateur use. Before radio, countries controlled borders to control spies. Then along comes radio - a spy can site in the middle of France and send data to his German spymaster, so all countries in europe brought out draconian controls on radio. Licences, fees, radio permits etc.
These controls killed a lot of radio research and amateur radio in the UK and Europe. Even colleges had to have years in applications etc to get to set up labs and teach it.
So this was not done in the USA, because then the Atlantic was a barrier you could not cross. So the USA was far less regulated, and by 1925 it had passed Europe and the UK and became the world leaders in radio, and never lost it.
Ah, but they do not broadcast. They have been asked to mount an antenna within the free broadcast field of the station. That signal is then received by the client, AND NO ONE ELSE.
No, it is you that do not get it. This much like the so called 'gray market' laws where companies make stuff in China and sell in the USA for $10 each and in India for $1 each - same stuff. An Indian imports to the USA with his $1 buy and sells below the 'official' product.
They want to say that the product we gave away for free over here can not be seen by someone who comes here - via Aireo antennas - I think not.
BTW, who pays your salary?
As I understand it, Aereo erects grids of small antennas in a strong signal area, each antenna belongs to one subscriber who is the onkly one who watches that feed. Americans have, for well over 100 years erected antennas on high points so people in the radi0/TV shadow, or out of range by distance can hear/see the radio and TV transmissions. Many of these were group efforts for towns to get reception over mountains etc.
The courts have seen this and ruled on it, so now they are asked to make illegal a practice with well over 100 years of legal use?
I think not
Yes, easy meat, low hanging fruit as they say - I say it is an officer not doing his duty. The law is an ass in this case, the guiding principal is that people should not drive cars AND use these phones. These people have come to a full stop = they are not driving.
