Or people chatting on their cell phone and never noticing your brake lights.
I think Lumix is just cameras (a Panasonic brand).
Were you upgrading from Vista? I could see why you'd love it by comparison.
In a cross-culture study it's going to be very hard to adjust for rates of molestation versus rates of reporting or prosecution.
IQ differences also point towards implies control. The LA Times article does mention this. So IQ might have no correlation with the desire, only with the behavior (or with getting caught). It also says "Not all pedophiles molest children. Nor are all child molesters pedophiles. Studies show that about half of all molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims." For that half I don't imagine that access to porn would help the problem.
I wonder how long it will take someone to turn this into a secondary (and insecure) microphone. It's already been done with Android's gyroscope.
And California's prisons are still overcrowded, despite the reduction. As are many other states
That sounds like you are claiming that black and hispanic populations are fundamentally more criminal, regardless of all other factors.
Finland has lower crime because they have less poverty, and they have less poverty because of their policies, not some Finish magic. We could do the same thing, we just choose not to.
Also the drop in US crime could be due to any number of factors. It may have nothing at all to do with tough-on-crime policies. Lead pollution correlates well with crime rates (and yes, correlation is not causation, but it often indicates causation).
Learning to code is learning logic and critical thinking skills, which everyone needs. And it gives an understanding of computers that you can't get from a class where you just memorize terms like client, server, network, etc. And that barista may one day be sitting on a jury judging a technical case.
True, but the system of slavery in the US and Caribbean really brought slavery to an industrial scale and drove demand through the roof.
If you want to turn people into energy the most efficient thing is probably to just have them pedal bikes hooked to generators. Blood powered batteries would be great for medical implants but not much else. And the Matrix was just plain silly.
Although perhaps the child with the least supportive family who needs the most help, e.g. affirmative action. Isn't China supposed to be communist?
"Science advances one funeral at a time." - Max Planck
Social issues do too. Support for gay marriage breaks very much along generational lines, as did segregation and just about every social issue ever.
in the US about 3 years ago it was easy to find a guy on craigslist with a mobile iPhone repair service - they drive to you and repair it in the back of their van while you wait. Clearly a low budget single person operation, but I had no reason to believe he was using stolen parts or anything else dodgy. Repaired a broken screen and got several more years of good use out of the phone. I assume such services still exist, plus many small shops offering repairs.
I don't need a lib arts degree to write well documented code. I need a good technical understanding of the code and an understanding of what difficulties the next person who comes along will have reading the code - and understanding that I have acquired from lots of experienced reading other peoples code. And a desire to do a good job - I can't emphasize that last point enough.
Do remember these stories were written as far back as 1941. "I, Robot" was published in 1950. Your experience with technology and real world edge cases is very different from his.
