Perhaps you attempted to troll, but it looks like ShanghaiBill sawed you off at the knees.
Population growth is much more sensitive to the fertility of the females than to that of the males.
if despite the fines the company is better off the way things are, then it is in their interest to just eat the loss and go on with life because their value will be preserved.
And that's why fines for corporate criminal activity need to be high multiples of the amount they benefited from the crimes. Make SURE the pain is intolerable. Otherwise, they will certainly do it again.
That and a certain country in Europe.
Higher energy photons are distinct from lower energy photons in having a shorter wavelength. They both travel at (about) the same speed. Presumably in a true vacum they would travel at exactly the same speed.
Thus blue light is more energetic than red light, and has a shorter wave length. You measure the energy of the photons by absorbing a certain number and measuring the change in velocity or temperature of the thing that absorbed them. (Usually this is done by some sort of photocell arrangement were the absorbtion translates into electron volts, and that's what you actually measure. I believe that this has been done down to the single photon level, but I'm not sure.)
This is how we know the Sun is^W made^W of^W contains some Helium. (And what proportion.)
We not only got rain, but hail. It worked out fine.
Last year, the Economic Policy Institute made what is, to date, the most ambitious attempt to quantify the extent of reported wage theft in the U.S.and determined that “the total amount of money recovered for the victims of wage theft who retained private lawyers or complained to federal or state agencies was at least $933 million.” Obviously, the nearly $1 billion collected is only the tip of the wage-theft iceberg, since most victims never sue and never complain to the government. Commissioner Su of California says wage theft has harmed not just low-wage workers. “My agency has found more wages being stolen from workers in California than any time in history,” says Su. “This has spread to multiple industries across many sectors. It’s affected not just minimum-wage workers, but also middle-class workers.”
Brought to you by the people who SWEAR that if corporations are made to actually pay their taxes they'll flee to Somalia.
Clearly that didn't happen.
Let's turn it around, if they lower wages or cut pensions, we just increase their taxes to fund the expansion of the social safety net.
Then give a definition, rather than telling me mine is wrong. 99% of the jackasses who do that would argue with any definition I give, so there's no point in me wasting my time.
I get it, you are the self-appointed guardian of "toilet to tap" and argue with anyone who uses that phrase.
Here's your definition.
"Toilet to tap" programs are those in which the treated sewage is directly used as the input into the water treatment plant.
The phrase "toilet to tap" is pejorative; the intent is to make people opposed to the process of recycling water directly from the sewage treatment plants. The phrase is also used by journalists hoping to attract attention to their article.
Less disparaging terms are those like "recycled water", "water re-use", "water reclamation" and so on.
Some people consider discharging the treated water upstream to the cities water intake to be "toilet to tap", or also the process where the treated water is put into holding ponds that also serve as water intake. Those are called the same terms with the word "indirect" added, such as "indirect recycled water".
No one calls the case of upstream cities sewage (treated or untreated) being dumped into a river that downstream cities use for their water intake to be "toilet to tap". That's just traditional practice, and is called "pollution" in the case of untreated sewage.
Here is a journal article that discusses it in more detail.
He didn't give hinself shock treatment to erase his memory of the time he worked with us and he failed to deny that he existed during the years of 2011 and 2012. Even though he didn't steal our IP (or we would have sued for that), we want to sue anyway because we fumbled the future and he didn't!
You can only TAKE a selfie of yourself, but you can easily POST someone else's selfie if you understand the technology.
Being a crack addict does not confer knowledge of plant alkaloids or even botany.
Nicely said. I hope you don't mind if I hold on to that one for future use.
Honestly, I don't see a lot of age difference in politician's understanding of tech. Young or old, f they're in politics, they typically don't understand it at all.
