14000 km/h = 3889 m/s, so a 513kg craft crashing at that speed into a planet would need to dissipate 0.5 * 513 * 3889 * 3889 = 3.8 GJ of energy, or just under a ton of TNT. So yeah... the crated would probably be fairly impressive from close up.
Google is on to something, but the implementation is wrong. First of all, this facility should be built in to browsers, not added as an extension. Secondly, it needs to be generalized: Just as browsers currently ask "Would you like to save this username/password for www.somesite.example", they should also ask "Would you like to lock this username/password combination to www.somesite.example?" and offer the usual "Yes / No / Not now" choices.
If you say "Yes", then the browser should alert you every time it sees that password on a different site.
If that vision comes to pass, then our education system will have imploded and we'll be producing generations of uneducated students.
I cannot think of a single person who hasn't had one or two teachers who've made a huge difference in his or her life. And I cannot think of a single child who would prefer a screen to a living human being. What a pile of hogsh*t.
Yeah, but Tsarnaev was not Black, so he probably did get a fair trial.
I can see this both ways. On the one hand, Fiorina is right. Saudi Arabia, China, etc. have despicable human rights records and roundly deserve criticism and boycotts.
On the other hand, Apple is a US-based company and is much more likely to have influence in the US than elsewhere. We should recognize that we need to fight injustice everywhere, but just because we aren't able to effectively fight it in China that doesn't mean we should throw up our hands and ignore it in the US.
What Apple et. al. really should do is ensure that their employees in China are as well-treated on the job as American workers. Not to do that would be utterly hypocritical.
Some Muslims have a religious objection to permitting non-Muslims to live. Who are we to stand in the way of their sincerely-held beliefs?
Leave people alone.
No. They're not discriminating against gays. They won't cater for anyone on a Friday and they won't cater a pig roast for anyone.
If they refuse to cater a gay wedding with Halal food on a Sunday afternoon, then yes... that's discrimination.
Look, I agree that you shouldn't have to bake a cake that specifically celebrates spanking. But if a couple into spanking came into your store and asked for one of your generic cake designs, I do not believe you should be able to refuse them service.
Similarly, I don't believe gays should be refused a generic wedding cake.
Religious people have the right not to have their faith mocked...
Oh really? Perhaps you could provide a citation of the law granting this so-called "right"?
Religious Freedom, or Freedom of Conscience, originally meant that the government wouldn't try to impose a particular brand of religion on the people.
The concept has been abused and mutilated until now it's interpreted as "My religion gives me freedom to trample all over your civil rights".
Bestiality is illegal. Homosexuality is not.
Nah. Quebec bashing is nothing. Post an article about something in Israel and watch what happens...
Taxation, perhaps they could get away with. I was actually referring more the the "blocking gambling sites" part of the article. I suppose I should have been more clear.
I don't believe Quebec has the power to regulate ISPs. AFAIK, telecommunication regulations are the domain of the federal government.
