I found in person MBA to be a complete joke at a "prestigious" regional school. I can't say I am surprised that you had similar experience with an online MPA. Graduate management programs are a joke.
Dude, you're saying is that you are a loser with no social skills. But that that's OK because there are plenty of others just like you and you'll all engage in this bullying of women who venture into a tech field without knowing their proper place, which is to be quiet and submissive, ignore the bad behavior and don't try to advance in your career.
Most tech people (not the ITT/college/mil tech crowd) have social disorders like aspergers, this makes social boundaries and queues quite a bit more complex for them to deal with. This is why tech people are awkward and when they are in an environment a few times a year where they don't feel like they have to wear a mask, they let loose because they are finally in a "safe space," perhaps the first time in their life. It is also why they respond so strongly to things like "donglegate" or the ada folks.
The brogramers, ada initiative, et al. are breaking this environment slowly over time, they will ruin what is special about tech for people with these medical conditions. Often times this type of tech is the only workplace that is compatible with these people's medial needs. People with social disorders know how to deal with the rest of the world, they put on a mask or avoid it all together. If these people get their way they will displace one of the most discriminated against and misunderstood groups in society even further. Sadly we have proven to be horrible advocates for ourselves and those with who consider themselves powerful will continue to abuse the weak.

In short the Ada folks believe "Simply put, even the world’s most pro-woman, sex-positive, pro-consent talk about sex is likely to have negative effects on women at a technical conference."
They have a complete lack of understanding of hacker culture, take one or two relatively minor, usually unreported, incidents out of a group of 10k+ people in a weekend and us it to drum up hate and a paycheck for their founder as they push their specific agenda. There concerns are not hacker specific issues that affect women, they are the same women's issues that have been out there for years. Their "initiative" is widely rejected by women who are long term attendees at cons. And that is what defcon and others are, cons, not technical conferences.
Their choice in venue (cons) has a very low rate of incidents compared to the general population. They have caused far more incidents of things that may be considered sexual harassment as backlash for their bizarre behavior. At Chaos Communications Congress 29 this group handed out "Creeper cards" to men who in their sole judgement did something offensive. The folks at the con responded with their own form of "anti-feminist" cards. Their surprise at this response reiterates that they don't understand our culture.
If there are incidents where someone is assaulted then call the police. Someone keeps proposition you at a bar? Tell them to go away, then call the bar's security, have you ever been to a bar? With defcon, the move to the more traditional strip hotels from the AP has brought in loads of Vegas trash. Pimps, bro's, etc roam the hotel and proposition every girl there for "shopping for sex" or other pimply schemes. No girl is safe in any Vegas venue from these guys, welcome to Vegas. If Vegas trash keeps hassling you, ask the passing group of hackers for help, they will solve it for you without any expectation in return, that's our culture.
FDIC is $250k per named account holder, if its a joint account with a four names on it, you get $1MM in coverage. This coverage flows through trusts as well, that's how paypal gets 250k in coverage per paypal account holder, all in a few huge accounts.
The banking industry offers various solutions to this issue as well from private deposit insurance offered through loyd's of london or the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS). CDARS offers CD's and and a cash sweep product that offers $50MM in FDIC coverage by splitting your deposits across 200+ different banks giving you the convenience of one statement and one bank relationship. Anyone who doesn't take advantage of the many options to keep clear of the $250k limit just hasn't had to consider it. Every penny over the limit is an investment in the bank with the same risks as shareholders. Be wise or loose your investment.
Really? Will all the real sysadmins stand up. Every internet exposed system gets these scans ran several times a day from random sites. Who even takes the time to investigate this shit? Just auto detect and auto block like a normal person. Hell, look at your auth logs and see all the brute force root pw attempts from random ip's 24/7? Go install a old version of RHEL with a old LAMP stack without a firewall and wait if you don't believe me.
This was targeted at the student, they were looking, desperately for him.
Kaufman v. Gerson,  1 K.B. 591 (Eng.) outlines duress from a 3rd party threatening a criminal matter and is the basis of many other cases throughout the Commonwealth. As described his case checks most of the boxes in Barton v Armstrong (1975) 2 W.L.R. 1050 (P.C.) (Austl.). and Armstrong v. Gage,  O.J.No. 199, 25 Gr. 1 602. (Can.). IANAL, but if he consulted one, the contract is likely invalid in Canada. In addition, it appears that no consideration was exchanged (nothing of value was exchanged.) Not going to the police is not consideration. Contracts without consideration are invalid. This is a common issue with NDA's where no real economic relationship exists, but the threat of the big bad worthless piece of paper usually does its job.
In the USA there once was a ABA rule of conduct about this (DR 7-105(A)), but it was consolidated and watered down by modern "progress." Some states explicitly do not permit this. Engaging in this type of behavior tends to result in bad things when you get in front of a judge.
This is of course separate from the completely insane idea that the computer equivalent of knocking on a door is considered illegal.
Those fixed artillery guns and their ammo are likely inoperable. South Korea will have the latest in anti artillery missile systems courtesy of Israel. All you need is enough protection to survive the first shot from an alterity position and then the real military next door can stop the threat.
Until he gets on a plane to Britain where he is also a citizen.
Most STEM programs have calc as part of the degree requirements and can easily be done in the first year. As long as he is calculus ready there is no hold up. At most it would take 2.5-3 years to complete but he is still ahead of the game. Very few are able to complete a STEM program in 4 years unless they arrive with AP calc, chem, phys, comp, etc.
Any state school will take all 60 credits will transfer and exempt you from whatever gen ed program exists and cover any electives that may exist once your program is done. There is no way around the 40 credit of gen ed. Have you taken a look at a degree map recently? Or how transferring with an AA works? Interestingly, most state schools take grades of less then a C that are part of an AA in transfer.
The cost of attendance at the University of Minnesota is $24,718. That includes room, board, tuition, and some expenses. The same student would need at least and extra $3,400 for expenses during summer break based on the schools calculation. A full time job at minimum wage after taxes brings in $12,617.28 if worked year round. If the student qualified for Pell grants, something that most all middle class students wont, he would receive $5,500.00. That would leave $3,200 in loans per year if the student was from a dirt poor family or $8,700 per year short for the average american.
With youth unemployment becoming an increasing problem its hard to say that they can even get such a job as older unemployed workers are crowding them out in the fight for jobs. Middle class families have become so debt ridden by bad economic policies and their own runs of unemployment they are ill equipped to help their kids cover almost $9k per year. My mother was able to pay for college in the early 70's with no loans, no grants, just working full time during the summer. Back then technical colleges were free and cranked out skilled workers. Everything is fucked now.
An associate degree in liberal arts is a highly valuable degree quite contrary to what most posters will say. Most 4 year schools will accept an AA to meet all of the universities general education requirements allowing the student to move on to upper division course work in their interest area. That same course work would need to be completed in your first two years anyway, but would cost at lest 4 times as much. A good student could complete the course work listed in the article in well under an academic year saving both time and money.
The unions defense has caused all the manufacturing jobs to leave the country, good job. What are you kids going to do for work now?
They have a history of doing stuff like this in Austria (Germany also). I am now aware of this happening in the US, we have fairly clear laws on the subject. I have ran a 5 mb/sec exit node unmolested, without even one single abuse complaint for 10 years. Anyone who sees the obvious tor-exit hostname in their logs knows whats up, if they are still confused the exit node notice should clear things up. The EU has been trying to get some reasonable laws passed but their broken economy steels the show.
That's how it works in Indiana. The law allows the use of force on the police for in many circumstances including removing them from your property when trespassing with force. It permits force (including deadly force if warranted by the circumstances) to be used on law officers where a individual has reasonable grounds to believe the officer is acting unlawfully.
