"right now"? SICP has been popular since the 70s, and with good reason.
No, the article is just terrible at explaining what FRP is. The idea of FRP is that you stop simply having the idea of having values, and start having the idea of "time varying values". So instead of having an int, which I change the state of at a bunch of times, I can have a Reactive which represents the value of the int at all possible times. You can then treat these as first class citizens, which you can manipulate, so if you have a Reactive representing the time, you can do things like time + 1, and get a new reactive int representing one second later than the current time.
These can be combined in much more complex ways to produce much more interesting behaviours than "hey, what will the time be in one second".
You can see a simple example of this, describing the n-bodies problem here http://noordering.wordpress.com/2009/02/01/simulating-n-bodies-and-functional-programmingre/
You're doing it wrong. With 150 employees you should not need 5 IT staff even, let alone more after that. Fix what you're doing wrong (to me, it sounds like you're micromanaging everyone's machines, and wasting a whole bunch of time in doing it).
And this... this is everything that's wrong with the american's version of liberalism.
American liberalism: You can do whatever you want.
Everyone else's liberalism: You can do whatever you want as long as you don't harm others by doing it.
Bear in mind that today's 5000 series actually does compete pretty bloody well with nVidia and AMD. It's near impossible to get a faster GPU in a thin and light laptop. The GeForce 740m is the same speed as it, the 750m is getting into power brackets that can't be put in a thin and light, and is only about 10-20% faster than the 5200 pro.
For me, Intel is doing a pretty impressive job of catching up. We've gone from intel being no where in terms of GPU performance to being able to equal the best nVidia and AMD can do at least in the power constrained market.
Certainly as a temporary measure, but you would hope that what they would eventually (fairly quickly) do is make the email server inaccessible to the public internet, and require use of a VPN to check email. Then this problem doesn't simply move to starbucks.
Well, feel free to live without street lighting, rubbish collection, or sewers and drainage if you don't like paying your $3000
Oh okay, so then corrupts and broccoli become unhealthy the moment that a large factory start cranking them out? Sounds reasonable. Better steer clear of pretty much any carrots of broccoli sold in a supermarket, because guess where they came from!
The point is that the term "processed food' is inaccurate speech at best, and complete bullshit at worst. There are planting of "processed" things (e.g. E-350/Asorbic Acid) that are things you absolutely want to be consuming plenty of, there are plenty of unprocessed things (e.g. Cyonide found in apple pips) that you absolutely don't want to consume any of.
What they *should* be saying is not to consume poisons, or not to consume sufficient volumes of the good stuff that it becomes poisonous. Neither of these has anything at all to do with the level of processing involved.
The problem with paper bags is that they have a higher environmental cost in manufacturing than plastic bags (surprising, i know, but they do), and that they are almost never reused.
That, and they're shit – they will split if you put anything remotely heavy in them.
Not quite the same thing, but in the UK, we have a crime of "going equipped" – that is, carrying tools of the trade to rob houses etc. It's effectively the same law, just with a different target.
Ah right, illness that you can't see manifest on the surface is not illness at all, right?
It turned into a liberal vs conservative issue because those who aren't in favour of workers not being made ill by their work needed a way to justify that, and therefore did their best to associate it with what's commonly seen as an extreme, and slightly insane political affiliation. They then burned this straw political affiliation man at the steak to demonstrate how dumb it was to support the idea of workers not being made ill by their work.
Okay... Found them. 2 and 3.
No, that's true of the mean average. The mean average of [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,9] is 2. 90% of the samples are below average.
