That would be the reason why then, different ends of the country different market demands. They're all the same here in Southern Ontario, which is rather silly.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Well gamergate uses it as one of the main pushbacks against moral authoritarians and prudes. The "social justice" crowd loves social media, so there needs to be some people who are willing to push back against those who are out to try and cause actual harm.
First Cree bulb I bought when they became available in Canada was ~3 years ago, and the bulb died a couple of weeks ago. They flat out refused to cover the warranty on it, home depot refused to cover the warranty on it as well. So that will make it the last time they will get business from me. I switched to the philips flat LED, which are rather nice. I just wish more stores carried the 5000-6000k bulbs, I hate the muddy brown 'warm' colour.
Are dimmable ones more expensive? Are they all dimmable?
Probably more expensive. Up here in Canadaland non-dimmable you can get really good quality LED bulbs for $7-9 each, cheap ones from your local dollar store for $3 plus tax, and cheap 4 packs for about $12. Dimmables are between 25-70% more than the non.
I strongly have the feeling we'll see space elevators before we get to Mars. Moon will be before that, and probably in my lifetime.
A study on anonymous hiring practices in France showed that anonymization resulted in fewer minority candidates getting hired. Their explanation is essentially that the companies who care enough about diversity to participate in this sort of study are already subtly biased in favor of minority candidates, and anonymization put a stop to it. Considering the amount of focus big tech companies are putting on diversity, there's a fair chance the same thing is happening here too.
Why do I get the funny feeling that if you were on twitter or facebook, the first thing you'd to is tell women and minorities in #gamergate that they're: misogynists, uncle toms, house niggers, they're ignorant, or they're too stupid to know what's best for them. Since your post acutely reflects what many aGGros say when someone says something that differs from their preconceived notions.
Can you list said stores that offered different products? Because the ones in my neck of the woods in London and Kitchener all had the same stuff in them. In some cases, those stores were right next door to each other or less than 500m away. They had amazing amount of redundancy.
That's easy, because the media doesn't report it. If however, you head down to your local police department/service, you can request a crime log for the week, some places even have daily reports you can pick up. Which lists all arrested offenses, and minor calls(vandalism, theft under, non-violent domestics, etc) out. In many cases these are published to the media every day, and they decide what they're going to tell the public.
They're starting to enclave up in videogames, much like what happened with the atheism movement. It took a few extra years but the "atheism+" crap is now collapsing under it's own corruption and regular atheism is going along just fine still. And of course there's now a similar thing to gamergate starting in comic books and heavy metal. Everything they touch they turn into a political issue, and when they don't get their way they claim sexism, bigotry, racism, or whatever else to try and make people back down. Funny enough, many of them actually sexist, bigots or racists and that can be easily seen in their social commentary on twitter or facebook.
Most of amazon's warehouses are in the asshole of nowhere, that means that many people don't have any choice but to work for them.
That was exactly the same reasoning that GM invested heavily in robotics to do the same job, and after 35 years of screwing around with it they simply threw their hands up over it.
General Motors has tried this a number of times at a variety of different warehouses including the National Parts Distribution Centers in Canada at Woodstock, Edmonton and in the US at the facilities in Ohio and Colorado. Even at the wage that most of the people make between $21-29/hr they're more efficient, have fewer errors, and process the orders more quickly than any automation system did. And they've been running tests and trials of it since the 1980's, and every time a human beats the machine. In the one case where they went with a full automation field trial, the warehouse was losing money. Where as a warehouse like Woodstock makes money hand over fist.
In what way is $5 per GB not "that expensive"?
When you live in Canada and it's $20-25 per GB, and I'm not even kidding. That's what Bell Canada charges people for their wireless service in the middle of nowhere.
"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time," and that's all a politician needs.
