There is a working trick, and it works because the real eruption needs slightly longer than one microsecond (remember, TFA said it's one microsecond until the first bubble implodes, and one bubble doesn't make an eruption yet): as fast as you can, grab the bottle, put it to your mouth, and drink! Many years ago, there was a time I was quite good at it... It doesn't even need much training, only a minimum of alertness and quick response. Which, of course, deteriorates with the amount of beer you've already drunk...
"Why are illegal immigrants being called undocumented?" Because, if to use correct language is more than just a pretense for anti-humanist, misanthropic political propaganda, there is no such thing as an illegal person, which is what the term illegal immigrant amounts to. There may be an offense called illegal immigration, but that doesn't make the offending person any more illegal than theft, speeding or tax fraud.
Yeah, and a perhaps even more adequate analogy would seem to be the 'garbage collection'...
That's how internet presentations of election results ARE developed and tested: with current data as far as possible, meaning of course current candidates, too, but with old results. Many years ago, I could get an inside look into the internals of the web presentation software for certain elections within a European country, and that's just how it was done. If they would have accidentally put the test results online, that's what it would have looked there, too. (Perhaps people should form a habit of testing elections using extremely improbable made-up test data...)
"Both" in that sentence refers to Bernoulli and Laplace, not Weber, which is why it doesn't say "Bernoulli, Laplace and Weber" and "the three of them".
In fact, a box is one of the best ways to store and distribute wine.
True! I, too, buy most of my wine in boxes. Usually containing six bottles each. Very convenient!
Library sync is still a major problem, because it becomes virtually impossible once you start adding books to different libraries.
Right now, I'm keeping my primary calibre library on a netbook, I don't add books in any other library, and I synchronize other libraries by simply copying from the netbook.
That said, calibre is nevertheless THE all-in-one solution for everything I need to do with e-books, and it's truly excellent.
PDF is generally problematic. One of the reasons is that PDF is pre-formatted with hard line breaks which have to be eliminated to get dynamically flowed paragraphs, and it is quite impossible for a machine to perfectly know without understanding the context whether a specific re-flow is in order or not.
That said, I find the PRS-T2's built-in PDF reflow feature, while far from perfect, better than the PC based conversion solutions I happened to look at so far. I always try to get a "native" epub version of a book I want to read in the first place, though.
It may be slightly awkward at first sight, but if someone doesn't perfectly get used to it in seven years, that's probably not the program's fault...
... eat Romanesco broccoli.
Who demands tolerance for those who fight tolerance and propagate intolerance, has to be absolutely clueless about what tolerance really is, and what it is good for.
Today, German news agency dpa reports that fruits and vegetables currently sold in Germany are contaminated by perchlorates. This piece of news will add fuel to the fire for those who wonder where their food really comes from.
Of course there are exceptions to the rule, otherwise ecology and resources and general living conditions would have already deteriorated to the point of being beyond all bearing.
EU lobbyism is nearly exclusively for big economy and big industry and there can be no doubt about it as it is, as of today, closely watched (e.g. by groups like http://www.alter-eu.org/). The notion that charity lobbies may have more influence in Brussels than big money is more than ridiculous.
But all the lobbyism wouldn't even be necessary for what I said, because it's the general conditions of the world's economic system which dictate the leeway in decision-making for politics. Because there's nothing that politics could do without money, and money can only be extracted from a successful economy.
That's not the point. The political spectrum can be as broad and wide as it may, within the general conditions of the existing economic world system nothing can be done without money, and money can only be extracted from the proceeds of a profitable domestic economy. So politics is, as a simple matter of fact, always and completely at the mercy of economy.
No, that's why even SYRIZA couldn't have helped Greece much without being able to extract substantial amounts of money from a profitable domestic economy, which unfortunately doesn't exist (while its remains are being squashed to death by the strict requirements attached to the EU financial aids).
