Maybe this is nothing new... the effect of co-ed dorms vs. single-sex dorms and fraternities has been studied for decades. As someone who has participated in

I think most people would have posted that as an AC.
Aren't you a little old for that?
Since you're posting unrelated material that is a sort of "greatest hits" from 2013, do you have anything earlier? I'm a little bored and was wondering if you have anything interesting from 2009 or 2010?
It doesn't even have to be about "climate change."
That was a great post, but it contained one error. Slashdot user gweihir is hostile towards the US, regularly making nonense or hostile comments that add nothing to the discussion.
The tables showing the results are in the paper and noted at Perdue.
Seitter isn't listed as an author in the preprint. Where is this "statement"? And what is the "email" you refer to? Is it the one involving the Heartland Institute?
That was a year ago (2013) on a different issue. You must be trying to muddy the water, lying, or simlpy aren't competent to handle ordinary facts.
In short, you're the one that is full of bullshit.
Actually the US suceeded in producing a electronic gp computer in that era. It was Germany that failed, which you seem to be trying to obscure.
I'm curious, what is it that drives your pathological hatred of the US? Did a US tank on a NATO exercise run over your dog or something? Insecure about Germany's place in the word? Bitter about the Wall falling and communism failing?
The justice system didn't fail. The rioters and looters are the asshats. Your civil liberties don't include the "right" to assault police officers to avoid arrest for robbery.
It's ok to be a murdering thug if you wear a badge, right?
There was no murder involved in this case. The police officer shot the real thug in self-defense.
It is disgusting that you have this wrong given the presentation of information at the announcement, perhaps even "pathetic."
Looks to me like the grand jury can only get information that the prosecutor wants them to get.
And if the prosecutor wants them to get everything that's what they get.
It's a pity you don't seem to be able to distinguish fact from fiction, form from substance, or even identify the important facts. But such is often the case on Slashdot where memes substitute for thinking, troublesome facts are ignored, and wishful thinking treated as facts. Not being able to distinguish between the USSR and the US? Pitiful.
What makes you think scientists are "always wrong"?
You may recall that Eisenhower warned about the so-called "Military Industrial Complex." At the end of WW 2 the GDP devoted to defense spending was just under 40%. It has been falling since then with just a few interruptions. Today defense spending hovers around 4-5% of GDP after climbing a bit after 9/11. If the "MIC" is a "state within a state" it isn't a very successful one given its long slide in the resources it controls which is now only about 10% of what it controlled when Eisenhower was a General of the Army.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.
Man, that raises goose pimples.
As to voting
* US remains a democratic republic with a more or less capitalist economy, civil rights are good, foreign powers aren't allowed to invade, Europe is a friend, racism is bad, something resembling law and order will be maintained, etc..
Excellent question. I see you're coming along nicely.
10.0 times 0.1 is hardly ever 1.0.
