Just because most of the fans of lord of the rings are (claimed to be) scientists (no actual study was done) does not mean that most scientists are fans of lord of the rings.
And honestly, lord of the rings stinks as a piece of literature. Give me a good sci-fi (or even not-so-good) any day.
"two armed gunman were shot and killed"... by whom? Who were they? After reading the article it seems clear that the two gunmen killed were religious fanatics, and the killers were police officers who were defending the event. This should be in the summary, I think
Yes it is; she was trans long before she was publicly identified as trans, and you can be sure that she did not maintain a male appearance 100% of the time. Once someone transitions, they want to move on to what is their real life.
Once Bruce Jenner is done transitioning, do you think it would not be considered both insulting and exploitative to make a statue of how he used to look?
Of course, the number of high vulnerabilities of Linux is lower than all of the Microsoft OSes except those popular fan favorites, Vista and RT. Ahem... but I digress.
If you consider both high and medium vulnerabilities, OSX and Linux take the top spots, by more than a 2 to 1 margin compared to Windows. Hopefully this will incentivize OSX and Linux to look at different processes for development, testing, and deployment.
You seem to know an awful lot about delinquencies.
I grew up in the slums. Everyone knew an awful lot about delinquencies
Dressing like a female doesn't make him one. Even mutilating his body doesn't change his DNA.
Anonymous Coward once again proves that what's between the ears is more important than what's between the legs. Last time I looked, DNA programs how you develop - which includes the failure of the testes to produce sufficient testosterone to masculinize the fetus brain at 12 weeks. So, it's only logical to say she's that way because of her DNA.
Now that further studies have shown that transsexualism is actually quite common (between 1:500 and 1:2000), you've certainly run into us - we're pretty much everywhere, and we're not buying into old, discredited ideas as to "right and wrong" about gender identity.
The very definition of a delinquency is an act that, if it had been committed by an adult, would have been a crime. And as long as the case isn't remanded to the adult system, that doesn't change - he will have been found to have committed one or more delinquencies, not crimes.
Even children in jurisdictions that don't have mandatory remand to the adult court system for acts such as murder can end up being found to have committed a delinquency, not a crime.
Some people would say this isn't right - but consider that as a trade-off, juveniles accused of delinquencies don't have a right to a jury trial, and a process with a much higher standard of proof.
Right now he does NOT face five felonies. That's a simple fact. He may, at some future time, should the juvenile court system so rule. Right now, though, he only faces delinquencies. Given that about 10% of the e population has had run-ins with the juvenile system, this should be better known.
Makes me wonder how many non-criminals who have been taken into custody have thought that they have to answer "yes" when asked if they've "ever been arrested, even as a juvenile" , when they can legally say no.
What this says is that the originators of the idea (sculptor Davide Dormino and journalist Charles Glass) are more interested in the agenda (and self-promotion) than in the people behind the story. You don't honor someone by actively disrespecting who they are, insulting them and putting the lie to the greater truth. Hopefully, since the stated purpose is to encourage ordinary citizens to speak out, hopefully others will also call out these two (and everyone who backs this misrepresentation of Ms. Manning).
And before anyone starts with the "we don't have the data to make a representation of her as a woman" argument, if you can't do it right, then maybe you shouldn't be doing it at all. Ditto for the "artistic integrity" argument - artistic integrity my arse!
