Something like the fulcrum on Blacklist
We have many faculty that are, how do I put it, well past their sell-by date. These faculty are 60-70 years old, commanding top dollar salaries, and for the most part, they do nothing but rest on their laurels. Fancy titles, distinguished, scholars, etc, but no grants, no teaching responsibilities, no real purpose other than committees, dean of this or that, and his is what they've done for the past 20-30-40 years. While I am by no means discounting the knowledge/wisdom/experience of these elder faculty, education should be a fluid, moving entity. Every University needs a succession plan. My point is there is a HUGE cost here - the lack of funds available for new faculty. These departments have not had an influx of faculty in decades because as budgets get slashed, what funds are available are taken by tenured obligations. Sorry, but retire, move on, and make room for the next generation of faculty.
Where to pay to make it all go away. Maybe donations are the way to go? Or just sudo apt-get uninstall amazon?

The west is on fire because droughts happen. This Exxon CEO ought to tell this to the people in CO that have lost their homes. http://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/cmb/images/fire/2012/05/total_dm_120529.png
According to the RIAA, as "one credible analysis by the Institute for Policy Innovation concludes that global music piracy causes $12.5 billion of economic losses every year".
My used to get them printed at the Kodak Gallery on line, few hundred at a time. She makes a complaint and they either reprinted them or gave her a credit. Let's see what Shutterfly does.
FTFA, "If you factor out the super-loyal Toyota Prius buyers
... No other hybrid was anywhere close [in overal sales]." Well no duh. If you factor out the Prius, what do you have left? Cars that have hybrid engine options that sell at a premium. As a Prius owner, 7 years and 47000 miles later, I may not even have to buy another car!
Take augmented user records, for instance (used in an AD/OD setup). They worked with 10.5 and 10.6 clients, but stopped working with 10.7 clients. Can I get a simple answer "why won't they work with 10.7"? No. Only Apple mumbo-jumbo. Thanks Apple.
40 years past their prime, no Eric Idle (as per the article)... be prepared to be underwehlmed I sadly think...
Does it cost AT&T more money to have more bandwidth flowing across their network? If the same number of customers were all streaming Netflix at the same time, what would happen? Do packets really have cost?
They certainly want out of the server market.
Another stunning example of Government of the people, for the people and by the people. Silly me, I forget, Corporations are "people".
