So, if you replace basically the whole interface, you can make it relatively usable? As opposed to earlier Gnome 3 releases where you couldn't fix the suck?

Women and children are presumed not to be combatants. Killing a combatant or potential combatant (i.e. a man) contains an element of self-defense. Killing a non-combatant is just murder.
The problem is in america, we are still stuck on the idea of Big Energy large grids covering the nation. We don't think in terms of small energy, having a small community powered by modest green sources.
Because small-scale power generation is inherently less efficient that large-scale. There's a reason why electric cars are better for the environment than internal combustion, even if the electricity is generated in a fossil fuel power plant.
When an (American) football player wants to become stronger, he doesn't go practice football. He goes to a weight room and does one round of weight lifting for his pecs, one for his biceps, etc. It doesn't matter that the game of football never involves using just your biceps. You develop the muscles one by one, each one in its most effective way, and then you can use all of them as the need arises.
Similarly, in school, you develop skills in reading, arithmetic, critical thinking, and so on. Teaching them separately allows you to focus on each one by one, evaluate each one separately, and fix whatever lack of knowledge appears. A "cafeteria services" class which features a little math, a little writing, and a little communication, will not effectively identify when a student is weak in just one of those skills.
Tammy gets knocked up at 14 and still gets a new iPhone with the latest apps.
What's wrong with that? iPhone 6 Maps is punishment enough for anything.
Taxis in most cities are oligopolies in that the business is controlled by a few companies. The reason oligopolies are created is that they are compensation for requirements put on them by the government.
What makes you think that oligopoly is an inevitable result of regulations? The restaurant industry, for example, has many of the same restrictions as the taxi industry (licenses, inspections, insurance, minimum wage, accessibility, etc.) Do you think the restaurant industry is an oligopoly?
For your reference, a liver transplant gets you qualified for parking in a handicapped spot for some time after it occurs and all sorts of time while you're waiting, as does most of the other treatments he was going through.
Jobs was parking in handicapped spots decades before he got cancer.
Because it's too humane. The condemned doesn't just die peacefully, they die after a brief euphoria. For many people this offends their sense of justice: It feels like an evil person has gotten away because they didn't suffer sufficient pain to balance out their crime.
Whenever someone dies while mountain climbing or skydiving, the friends and relatives console themselves with the thought "He died happily - doing what he loved most. If you have to die someday, isn't that the best way?"
Not wanting a murderer to die among feelings of euphoria is just the flip side of this attitude.
Like it or not, human beings attach great importance to what's felt just before death. Not wanting a murderer to feel euphoria at this moment is hardly an example of cruelty.
This. I was speaking the owner of a company last week. He loved my capabilities and experience, kept going on about the pivotal role I could play in his company and then said to my face that he was not going to pay market rates (but not in those words) - and no, he didn't mean he'd pay above market rates, he wanted to pay about 15% to 20% below market rates, and he was not offering anything in return of that.
He was fishing. I hope you didn't bite.
The Karachi and NY metro areas are of similar size, but NY has a much lower density overall. Yes, Manhattan is super-dense, but most of the NY metro by geographic area is sprawling suburbs in Long Island and NJ. Karachi suburbs extend about 20km in every direction, NY suburbs extend about 60km in every direction, if you look at Google Maps. You can also see that for an 8km radius around this nuclear facility, there is almost no population.
Why not do the experiment in outer space? There are essentially no vibrations there. If the tubes were sufficiently thin and light, they could be affordably launched and then fit together in low earth orbit, and the experiment done there.
The administration officials had been using a private Internet domain, called gwb43.com, owned by and hosted on an email server run by the Republican National Committee, for various communications of unknown content or purpose. The domain name is an acronym standing for "George W. Bush, 43rd" President of the United States. The server came public when it was discovered that J. Scott Jennings, the White House's deputy director of political affairs, was using a gwb43.com email address to discuss the firing of the U.S. attorney for Arkansas. Communications by federal employees were also found on georgewbush.com (registered to "Bush-Cheney '04, Inc.") and rnchq.org (registered to "Republican National Committee"), but, unlike these two servers, gwb43.com has no Web server connected to it — it is used only for email.
That would have been a hell of a spear phishing target. Imagine if you or I had sent emails to a million potential email addresses consisting of permutations of Bush's and his subordinates' names. We're talking about a bunch of middle aged guys who grew up without email. You'd think the chances of gaining access to a super high value computer system would be rather high. This should be a big deal whether it is done by GWB, Hillary, or anyone else.
You want to stop ISIS? Fix the Middle-East's economy. Give people stable, productive jobs.
Which is why ISIS is getting so many recruits from Western countries...
I've always been puzzled that some of the best minds in user interface design get together and say "obviously, the best solution is to throw out everything the users have learned and give them something totally different."
Because if all the design problems are solved, then they're out of a job.

Hey guys, I think I see the problem.
Why not? Aliens usually come in Unidentified Flying Objects...
