The fact that bullying messages are posted on social netwrok sites can be used as easy evidence against bullies. Just remember how it was before all the electronic stuff wass available. The bullies met you somewhere and threatened you. And you had nothing to prove that he was threatening you. Nowadays you just pulls out message from your phone, e-mail, or whatever way was used and goes after bully. The problem is how it will be handled. Usually reporting bullies will backfire at you. So you should be prepared for that.
Just one question. How did 14 year old get drunk in the first place?
I have been hearing all this hype about how innovative online classes are, how this will change teaching, how we might not have colleges any more because it is so revolutionary.
Then you have been hearing it wrong. This kind of education is not going to make current education obsolete. It will just complement it. If you look at reasons why Sebastian Thrun left Stanford, then you might be surprised. The reason why he left was partly due to the fact that after he started teaching online AI class, then his usually packed classes at Stanford were suddenly empty. And when he asked his students why they don't come to see him while they pay big bills to be able to, the answer was surprising. I quote freely "Professor we rather like you on video. We can pause you and rewind you back."
You might also find a talk by Salman Khan, who made a bit of change in the learning field too. Just by using the tools like prerecorded classes you as a teacher can spend more on discussing stuff with students rather than talking to the room. And this is the point where I see biggest added value. Not mentioning that now are such lectures available to people like me who are long time out of school, but want to learn something new.
The question is whether it would be even possible to play at all. The problem is that currently it is programmed to follow human player's hand. So if two machines are put against each other, then both will wait until the other one makes move and thus waiting indefinitely.
Just consider it a demonstration of very fast real time pattern recognition. But wait a moment don't we have a kinect for these kinds of tricks?
- I haven't seen any replacement for encryption / digital signatures
- I still didn't figure how to mark what I have read and what not on services like FB or G+
- I haven't realized how to mark a post for immediate response of for getting to it later
- I haven't realized how to move a message to specific place so I can use it for reference later
- I haven't found a way to setup my own / corporate server, so I can be sure that my business will continue in case such service will go under
But what I have already learned with e-mail.
- its delivery is almost instant like any other service
- if I need it, I can work with it offline (on the plain, train, ship,
Will the certificates be awarded by Harvard and/or MIT?
As determined by the edX board, MIT and Harvard, online learners who demonstrate mastery of subjects could earn a certificate of completion, but such certificates would not be issued under the name of Harvard or MIT.
But I still don't get why he was banned from seeing his child when there is no accusation against him. Or is there something missing from the article?
You might also look for any clue about original owner and inform him about it. And of course wipe the data.
Just to help you in deciding I would like to share two stories of mine.
I have once found a USB stick. I checked it out and found who is its owner. He was glad that I returned it to him and paid me for it.
Another one is about external HDD I had. It died one day. But I had some data that was not in any backup. So I opened it and put the drive itself in computer. I have downloaded data and wiped disk. Then I put it back into its enclosure and returned it back. It was not simple as WD external disks have security sealed screws and some plastic locks. But after getting disk out of enclosure, then it was very easy to get data out.
As noted by others, the tree is using more panels than flat installation. So it will be more expensive, more demanding on material resources and so on.
I bet there's another ten on the other side.
I doubt that. He mentions in his article
I made a second model that was based on how man-made solar panel arrays are designed.
Also if you look on the graphs that you can see peek values are higher on tree model than at "classic" model. So he has more panels on the tree or has significantly crippled standard configuration.
But there is one interesting thing on the tree design. It is more even distribution of the power during a day.
As you can probably see, the key to success in transition to IPv6 is dualstack for services, not for users.
If we will have all websites and VPN's and other services available via both IPv4 and IPv6, then there is no problem if users are on IPv4 or IPv6. They will just choose whatever is available from their ISP. And as more and more users will be IPv6 only, then content providers who stick to IPv4 only will fade out.
Just check with web/server hosting in your region to see how many of them already provide IPv6 connectivity. The content providers are those who should act now. Users will simply follow.
