Please stop! Logic and reason are hurting my Slashdot.brain!
Viewed from the point of view of what the Greek people are asking (telling) the Greek government to do, I totally agree with you. I think it was more the Greek government twisting the meaning of that statement (A "democratic" decision in Greece should force other democratic countries to fund them).
I think the point is that they couldn't vote to have other countries give them money.
Yes, I've read a lot of things, but this is the first time I've read that. I feel like I've missed some important pop culture reference, or something...
Unless... it lowers employment and living standards for everyone. It's easy to make everyone equal in despair (ask a Marxist).
So: 1) He was a child. 2) He didn't break into any physical structure. 3) He probably agreed to the plea bargain. Yes, exactly the same.
As long as the have the Kessel Run, we'll all be satisfied.
Public campaign donations != privately bribing public officials. Voters can make decisions based on the former. For the later, voters can make a decision only if the perpetrator is caught. We may hold different views on money in politics, but let's at least have a reasonable conversation, minus the hyperbole.
I don't think the NSA was spying for economic gain (France was). I do agree that having a government spying for economic gain is very "Anti-American," and I don't know what they'd do with the information. So, it may just be paranoia.
My understanding is that corruption is more expected and accepted in Europe. In the US, it is illegal for a corporation to pay a bribe and is certainly not tax deductible. I believe this is now true in Europe, but is a much more recent phenomenon. I was shocked in the 80s and 90s when I learned that France actively spied on foreign corporate interests for economic gain (I guess I shouldn't be shocked now at how the NSA has gone in that direction after 9/11). There is an idea of fair play here, even if it is often violated.
Interesting. However, I wouldn't mind a more skeptical group also evaluating this type of technology.
I think computer models only work when the target data is too far out to verify.
How does the PSAT test identify "those from traditionally under-represented groups?"
I would love that to be the case. However, if history is any guide, it won't be: http://www.japantimes.co.jp/ne...
