Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Most people trust that the climate scientists are using reasonable methods to determine the interpolation of station data but when the two data sets vary, it raises questions about which is correct.
Now picture a group of friends with half girls and half boys. Same problem: You're saying to the boys that it is OK to exclude someone because of their gender, kind of not the message that you want to send when trying to improve gender equality.
As they say in the article, the key will be in scaling the system. Will it be able to replicate complex and/or learned behaviours, I'd love to see a robot with a built in reward system similar to dopamine and the ensuing pavlovian responses.
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Seems that regulation is baked right in.
The true car analogy is if your car needs an oil change and the dealership discover counterfeit parts, they will void your warranty and likely declare your car not roadworthy if the parts are known to be bad - essentially bricking it.
And before you say the fake chips work perfectly fine, the fact that they can be bricked by the manufacturer of the original without bricking the legit version immediately reveals that to not be true.
All this guy did was force Facebook to generally apply a rule they were until recently applying selectively. The real ire should be directed at Facebook for having a stupid rule rather than at the guy who caused them to actually enforce it.
I guess though his stated reasons for wanting the rule enforced are bigoted so perhaps the hate levelled at him is justified in that sense.
That page has papers about this occurring in the seventies. Google "Walrus Haulout" and you'll see there is even a name for it.
The main claim the media is making about the paper is the energy return, but that seems to be a very minor aside as opposed to the full environmental impact the paper is actually discussing.
I suck at reading scientific literature though so I can't find where he defined the total energy cost of the wind generators. Could you please tell me which page it's on? I'm looking for the GW number that was used to compare with your quoted GWh number to give a payback time.
