The NT line never went tick tock (until Ballmernator fucked it up by merging with consumer which was fucking full retard, like consumers and fortune 50 customers want the exact same thing) because business was where their bread was buttered. the good ones on the NT line were NT 4 (after SP4), 2K, XP (after SP2), 2K3/XP X64, Win 7.
For those counting Win 10 in the good column? DO NOT COUNT YER CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH, so far in the past 3 months I've seen 2 good builds and two shit builds and there is still a LOT wrong with Win 10. 1.- Like Win 8 there are areas where it hides needed controls from the user, 2.- the icons look like Windows 2, for why that is important see any article on visual feedback, 3.- there are still too many things where you are given no clues WTF it is, just look up how many services they have running with vague as fuck names, that is a malware writers wet dream, 4.- The performance seems to be all over the place, with one release its doing better than Win 7, the next its grinding the piss out of the HDD, 5.- The appstore? Needs to DIAF, its full of half assed programs, outright scamware, and what programs it has in common with the Apple appstore is often triple the price.
With Win 7 I heartily recommended my customers switch on launch, in fact I was doing Win 7 installs on launch day, but unless the Win 10 gets their collective shit together and irons out the serious issues? I'm gonna advise everybody to wait for at least SP1 or the 6 month mark and evaluate it then.
The link is between nutrition and brain development, and considering the odds of poor nutrition is higher in poorer families than in wealthier families, the conclusion does not seem bad at all. Nothing says that all families that live in poverty will have children with developmental problems, but it does argue you're much more likely to see the phenomenon in such families.
I can't imagine why anyone would see this as controversial.
And how was a minority population viewed as subhuman, terrorized by both legal and extralegal organizations supposed to participate in the market? Jim Crow was only one aspect of a century of segregation and persecution of southern African Americans. Your perpetuating this fantasy that it was all the legislatures' faults, when every historical indication was that the majority of Americans in the Jim Crow states had absolute no problem with the laws, or with the idea that blacks and whites should not mingle, even in the market square.
Again, I will repeat, business is not some separate entity, some creature that exists in a vacuum. It exhibits the same prejudices that the wider society does, because it is simply a facet of that society. The Jim Crow laws weren't forced upon all southerners, they were forced on blacks by a majority of southerners who wanted to make sure they stayed at the bottom of the pole.
I don't know what is surprising about this. We've known for decades that poor nutrition during the developmental years can lead to poor brain development and permanent cognitive problems.
"Business" is not some entity that exists in a vacuum. The Jim Crow laws were passed with the consent of the majority of white southerners, and were maintained for decades. There's little or no evidence of any dissatisfaction on the part of the majority of Southerners to such laws, and indeed every indication that Segregation was viewed as right and proper.
I'm sorry you have a hard time accepting this, but Antebellum society until recently was fundamentally racist, and the businesses and legislatures of those states merely reflected the public mood. You will note that there was virtually no Southern civil rights movement, and that the pressure, and ultimately the solution, to Segregation and Jim Crow came from outside.
not "terrorism in the sense we have become accustomed to"
but still terrorism
what tim mcveigh did was terrorism, for example
maybe unfortunately terrorism has come to mean "done by muslims"
although, maybe we should remove attacks on military installations as terrorism
surprise coordinated violent attacks on civilians for ideological reasons is about as good a definition of terrorism as we can get i think
we call too many things terrorism that are not, and too many things not terrorism that are
That is why I said the guy who came up with "Don't be evil" should have been given a new car and a million in cash, because no matter how much Google fucks over consumers, no matter how nasty they get, hell they can do shit that would make Gates in the 90s cringe and they will ALWAYS get a legion willing to defend them because of one stupid advertising slogan.
Think the most effective ad campaign was "have a coke and a smile" or "where's the beef?", not a chance in hell as "Don't be evil" has worked like a magic cloak for fricking years. Gotta give the man credit, its the most brilliant piece of marketing since Jobs sold the world that Apple was a bunch of t-shirt wearing rebels.
they oppose government when they should be opposing corruption
the idiots are actually helping the corruptors. the corruptors would rather not have anyone to corrupt as an extra expense, and the idiots oblige by insisting on the same: remove the corrupted position, rather than fix it. because they apparently like shoddy, expensive, manipulated, inefficient markets
it's like someone robs the bank because they paid off the bank guard
the intelligent response is to fire, prosecute, and replace the guard, and go after the criminals who paid him off
the idiots want to fire the guard and leave the bank unguarded, and leave it at that: not pursue the criminals who paid off the guard and robbed their bank, their money
it's stunning how stupid and propagandized people can be
no that's hay-zeus
jee-zuz is the proper pronunciation of the anglosaxon founder of christianity
us civilized folk need to teach his compassion to dirty brown people like mexicans and middle easterners
you're trolling right?
