You do understand academia's purpose, right?
I suspect it wasn't hard to figure out. Bomb threats before exams are fairly common, historically. Therefore, there's a high likelihood that the perp is a student. Therefore, high likelihood that the threat originated on campus. Examination of router logs during the time in question then becomes the most likely first step. And it paid off. This doesn't really have anything to do with TOR. It has to do with an individual student understanding just enough about how the internet works to make a half assed and ultimately fruitless attempt to cover his tracks.
> Their study, in mice, suggests that supplementing an infant's diet with the right mix of bacteria might help prevent allergies — even without a pet pooch.
A part of me says don't take pills, go out and get a dog. There are enough of them who need homes. And then there's another part of me that says, if you're getting a dog just to prevent allergies, maybe you should take the pill instead.
We had three large dogs when our daughter was born. The dogs lived inside and were well socialized, and daughter became just another member of the pack. Although this is only one data point, it's interesting that she has no allergies (I have severe allergies to pollen and cats) and was hardly ever sick. We put it down to her immune system getting exercised at an early age.
Looks like BITC is recovering fast. 585 USD as I write this.
If you imagine that I'm a supporter of the cronyism that banks and other corporations consider business as usual, then you know absolutely nothing about me. Academia is the subject at hand, not banking.
your hatred of academia
Guess again. I want nothing more than to see academia liberated from government control. Today, US higher-ed institutions are fully in government thrall, just like all the universities in the Soviet Union.
If you limited yourself to Ruling Party candidates, the choice was between a wall street kleptocrat, and a wall street minion. Don't forget that Obama appointed Geithner as the treasury secretary, and the fact that he went along with Paulson's great money-grab.
To be fair, starting 12 years ago, two cities in the northeast of the U.S. have had some pretty heinous mass-destructions.
Were those called in? The MO is completely different, unless you're only trying to justify the fear, not the reaction.
Have you considered getting a job in the productive side of the economy?
To be fair, I know one very talented engineer who went to Harvard. I credit him, not Harvard, for his abilities.
American academia is lousy with left-wing sycophants, who know full well that their inflated salaries are supported by government interference in the student loan market, and taxpayer-supported direct funding. If more than a handful of them spoke up, they'd find out just how easily their overlords can snatch that titty away.
Unless you upgrade. This is actually one of the things that has prevented me from upgrading to a newer Roku box.
Somebody claimed that it was Google that dropped the ban hammer on Roku, it wasn't Roku's desire. Does the new app show ads (supposedly the bone of contention)?
I expected more from a Harvard student.
Heh. I don't think you've met enough Harvard students.
If he'd just called it in from a pay phone, they'd never have found him.
