rjmarvin writes "While object-oriented programming is often easier to pick up, functional programming is a bit tougher on the uptake. When teaching FP over OOP, there's a clear sequence of how to transform the data. The teachable core of FP starts with a sequence of data, and then goes through Filtering, Assigning, Reducing, Transforming and Slicing, or FARTS http://sdt.bz/66385. Crude? Sure. Effective? Damn straight."
Metabolife writes "Scientology is notorious for their crooked tactics to gain and prevent members from leaving. Following their superbowl ad, they've begun spending money on paid spots to draw in new members. Good Morning America actually takes viewers on a tour of their facility in the source video. What can we do to make sure that scientology is kept in check?" Link to Original Source
Yeah, I guess it is. The intent of my sig. was that people that use the AC system to be abusive and rude, suck. I posted the You Tube link and the follow ups as AC, because I didn't want to comment on a story I, myself, submitted. I only planned to supply the link that was stripped from my submission (and I didn't want to be modded up for it).
Daniel_Stuckey writes "A recent project by the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute has taken a huge leap forward. The team, whose research was published in Nature, sequenced the genomes of 201 bacterial species and archaeal cells.
Those species were sampled from nine environments diverse and extreme enough, like hydrothermal vents, that researchers could reasonably expect to hold unique species. And that's what they found. None of the 201 species had ever been sequenced before. As the authors write, "our single-cell genome data set provides an 11% greater coverage of known phylogenetic diversity than currently available genomes."
So, *that's* why! Thank you. I've always wondered why, when I rip CD tracks of songs that flow into the next (like a lot of Floyd albums) into MP3s, there is a noticeable break between songs that shouldn't be there. FLAC doesn't have this problem. I've always thought it was because of the compression MP3s use.
I've been collecting computer games since the 70s (yes, 70s). I love this kind of stuff! What I really want to see is the prototype cartridge for the Atari 2600 version of Treasures of Tarmin. I would love to have to the ROM from that!
