mbstone writes "Color change in chameleons isn't just for blending in, as is commonly assumed. According to scientists at Arizona State University, male chameleons' success in competing with one another depends on who has the brighter stripes and who can change color the fastest. In the study, the males were placed facing one another and watched with hidden cameras. Whether a given pair fought, or stayed away from one another, correlated with differences in color brightness between the two. (Images)"
It does not matter what laws China has on the books as their government feels it is above the law.
Getting some newspaper publishers' support for anti-communism is quite a bit different from government control. I don't recall newspapers shut down and their publishers jailed during the Civil Rights Movement and I remember reading quite a bit about it in the newspapers at the time. In fact without publicity Martin Luther King's non violence movement would have never worked. However, it is true that for a long time both the CIA and much of the State Department were populated by Cold Warriors and felt anything anti-communist was justified. It is also interesting to note, however, that it did come to light which never would have happened in China.
It is more like Hong Kong's much touted liberties are more illusion than reality. What freedoms Hong Kong has only exists at the whim of China's central government. Indeed, Beijing has made it clear they will not let Hong Kong go too far. China has never really understood freedom of the press that is why they made such a concerted effort to hack US newspapers. They just do not believe a country can allow a press that is not controlled by the government. They had hoped to find proof that the US government has total control of the US press, I guess they didn't find it.
In 1939 at battle of Khalkhyn Gol then commander Zhukov taught the Japanese a healthy respect for the Red Army. After that encounter the Japan did not want to challenge the Soviets. It came as quite a shock as they expected the that the Japanese warrior spirit would make them vastly superior to the Red Army. What they found, instead, was that the Red Army completely out classed them in modern warfare.
I see someone had an axe to grind
Only if you don't want to play modern games. It has the performance of a chip that is several years old and most games would be unplayable at an LCDs native resolution. The GeForce 740m that you compare it to is not much better. It will be a cold day in hell before a thin and light can play real games. Marketing these as gaming machines does the consumer a grave disservice.
Perhaps his time would be better spent getting Facebook to work correctly or maybe its just that his method of counting doesn't work that well.
If they were not still doing it to the best of their capability you might be right.
European hypocrisy has hit new heights. The Europeans practically invented spying on allies and the British had pretty much developed it into an art form by the start of WW1. The British were known for an active foreign policy in which they manipulated their allies into actions that fit their policy goals. There is some thought that in the post WW1 period they maneuvered the international scene so as to break up the budding alliance between the US and the Japanese. This was done to because the combined navies would prove too much a challenge to British power at sea. The French are just as bad as they have a tendency to break into the hotel rooms of their allies diplomats and search them. "The lady doth protest too much, methinks.".
Yes but how does it compare to the Tegra 4 with the GeForce cores?
Those numbers posted in Wikipedia are very misleading. Britain has no real carriers and probably won't until 2020. Only the French currently have a small aircraft carrier the other are little more than helicopter carriers.
Even with Thorium there are waste products that have a half life far longer than the entire recorded history of the human race. We can not comprehend that kind of time frame let alone adequately store waste safely for that period. Just look at how the waste was stored at Fukushima. Solve the waste problem then fission reactors become useful.
I checked and it appears to be that somewhere around 10% use fuel oil for heat. Not a high percentage but still a lot of people. But even eliminating that concern we still have a giant strip mine whose benefit will only go for export if the Keystone pipeline is built while the danger occurs along the length of the line. Doesn't sound like a good idea to me.
