Very comfy in summer. I wear them pretty much all the time in hot weather.
Same thing in Ottawa. Taxi plates are artificially scarce, which drives up the cost of obtaining them to stratospheric levels. Taxi drivers rent the plates from investors and they have to work like hell to make very little money because their expenses are so high, even though cab fares are high too.
The correct thing to do would be to eliminate the artificial scarcity. Let anyone who is willing and able to comply with the safety, insurance and knowledge regulations drive a cab. That will bring market forces back into play and taxi fares will settle down to something reasonable and sustainable, and Uber would no longer be necessary.
Unfortunately, the people lobbying against Uber are the plate-holding investors who would take a huge loss if the taxi industry were allowed to run like any normal industry, so they spend tons of bucks to protect their investments.
She was hired by a rival and was sticking pins in clay models of rackmount servers.
Probably about as effective as most AV products or the average clueless outsourced support-monkey.
I didn't say only. I said "almost all".
Trying to solve HR problems with technology is doomed to futility.
At my company, I don't block web sites. If I walked by someone's desk and saw him looking at porn, I'd say "don't do that." If it got out of hand, I'd discipline the person.
Sometimes I walk past the desks of the tech support guys and I see them on Facebook or playing solitaire. Well, what else are they supposed to be doing if there are no support tickets open or support calls coming in? I don't care if they take breaks every now and then as long as they get their work done.
 I suspect it's almost all guys who look at online porn.
There's a guy at work who wanted one, so we set one up. Then someone else followed suit. I decided to give it a try; my desk is not adjustable so I hacked something together. Seems quite nice.
It was slightly too high, so I fixed it by taking a 1U rackmount server that's purely scrap metal at this point and standing on that. So far very comfy.
The Greeks will never accept an exit from the Euro.
I really don't think they'll have much say in the matter.
You lose. I have three kids. And there's plenty of violence in kids' shows too, even though it tends to be cartoony.
Wow, are you off-base. I neither hate nor objectify women. And why do you assume "nudity" implies "female nudity"? What's wrong with nude guys?
I don't think nudity per se is a problem as long as it doesn't objectify or degrade anyone. It's perfectly harmless. Even depictions of sex, IMO, are quite harmless unless the depiction exploitative, degrading or violent.
Nude != Sex. That's a false equivalency you're raising there.
Ummm... wtf? Actually, religiosity in the US is correlated with teen pregnancy rates.
Top 10 states by percentage identifying as "very religious" are Mississippi, Utah, Alabama, South Carolina, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Oklahoma.
Top 10 states by teen pregnancy rates are: New Mexico, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Nevada, Delaware, South Carolina and Hawaii.
So 5 of the top 10 religious states are also in the top 10 for teen pregnancy.
Now please cite studies showing that "bombarding children with sexuality" (whatever that means) causes teen pregnancy,
I don't think this will happen quickly with nudity, and we have religion (for the most part) to thank/blame for this.
Michelangelo painted plenty of nudes, but the Catholic Church did a literal cover-up. *sigh*
Well that would be a nude nose. Think of the children!
And don't do something disgusting like blowing your nose either. Eeewww.
