You think corporations pay taxes like regular people? Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Do the editors even proof-read their submissions before approval? Word's Thinnest? I think they meant "World's Thinnest".
You are so now on the NSA hit list with those keywords LOL
The extent of the loss of company data was not immediately clear, though officials are planning to ask all employees to change their user names and passwords, the newspaper said in a report. The Post said the passwords were encrypted. However, hackers in some cases have been able to decode encrypted passwords.
The Post did not see any evidence that the hackers accessed information about its subscribers, such as credit cards or home addresses. Nor were there immediate signs that they accessed the Post’s publishing system or email, nor sensitive personal information of its employees, such as Social Security numbers.
Post officials learned of the intrusion on Wednesday from Mandiant, a cybersecurity contractor that monitors the paper’s networks. The breach was of relatively short duration, maybe a few days at most, and an investigation is ongoing, the story said, citing a Post spokeswoman. It marks at least the third intrusion for the paper over the past three years, according to the paper."

But the catch is that you left the Bluetooth option enabled, now your iPhone battery is dead, and now you have no idea where your car is located!
The biological section has less organic chemistry than it used to, and the overall exam is more verbal in character than before. When I took the MCAT, I got a 10/13/10. The overall score is not as important as getting 10+ in each section, so you can't just do well in one area and not the others. In medical school, it's hard to cheat on many exams, but certainly possible in some (and people have been caught doing so and reprimanded/kicked out). I just finished medical school and will be going onto a residency in general surgery, after being a chemist and then computer programmer for many years. I know that some people have cheated at time during the process, but they will be weeded out eventually as we take many licensing exams, and it's pretty difficult to cheat on everything and still get your license.
If you don't like something, then either turn it off or uninstall it. Whining about it so that others, who may want the technology, can't have it is just wrong.
I'll believe it when I see a successive series of releases supporting Linux, rather than one-off updates, especially with regards to security updates. Plus all the stuff about "well Linux isn't standard so we'll implement stuff only for Windows" makes it even more clear that Flash needs to be replaced unless they show results regarding supporting all platforms equally.
1. Tell the students "Tough!". You don't need a calculator!
2. The best way I've seen professors handle this is to design the questions to only require basic math knowledge, or only require answers that don't require extensive calculations. Make it so that if they are correctly arriving at the answer, the math is stupidly easy.
3. Tough about the English requirement. You are in the USA, and our language is English. And in a physics class, there shouldn't be that much to look up anyways. If you must have a dictionary, you can buy really cheap paperback ones. You think I get access to a dictionary when I take a test, or any book for that matter? NO!
No test should ever need a calculator if setup properly. It should only require basic math skills. If it must require knowledge of square roots and such, make a table available or make it so that the final calculations are ridiculously easy (like square root of 9). You are testing physics concepts, not math. And if you can't handle basic math and basic English, how did they ever get into college in the first place?
But, the iPad doesn't have a camera. How are the school administrators going to be able to see the children undressing in their rooms or doing naughty things?
I spend my time updating the iPhone app, and then the facebook program isn't available yet if Florida. Not quite ready for primetime.
Back in the mid 90's I was detained at the Canadian border for 2-3 hours (I was driving into Canada) while on a camping trip. I had just graduated from college, and decided to go camping in North Dakota and Southern Canada just for fun. I was stopped, taken upstairs, repeatedly asked questions where a customs offer would come in the room, ask me if I had ever been to prison, been in front of a judge, how much money did I have, did I have a job, etc. She would leave for a few minutes, would come back and ask me similar to identical questions while typing on her computer, leave and come back...repeated for almost 2 hours. Then they took me down to my truck and searched everything, took apart my camping equipment, took a keen interest in my first aid kit, but found nothing (there was nothing to find) and let me go. I was detained for 2-3 hours just because.
On my way back into the USA, they barely batted an eye.
