if the sentence is in any way based on an assumption of guilt for a crime he wasn't actually tried for.
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

The chinese and americans make too much money off each other to go to war with each other.
Which of course means we are no threat whatsoever to to each other, because on both sides of the relationship the leadership is and is guaranteed continued to be completely rational.
i get it
so "he went to alpha centauri"/ "he didn't leave at all" isn't known until you interact
there's no guaranteeing you go anywhere
schrodinger's rocket ship
yes, agreed. the idea of keeping anything larger than an atom entangled for anything longer than a second over any distance over an inch seems like a colossal almost impossible task with today's technology
i was only doing a thought experiment
in the realm of way out there then: i wonder if you could entangle a number of "copies" of yourself: dozens, hundreds, millions
you just sort of disperse throughout the universe (not interacting with anything, i know, basically impossible by today's standards)
but in an instant, if you, or someone outside, decides one "copy" of you should be the one that coheres at a given place: boom, you're there
just an interesting thought with interesting ramifications- you (or someone else) doesn't have to decide out of dozens or maybe thousands of destinations... until the very last moment. that's a pretty exotic form of "travel"
it's called desalination and it's a common mundane technology
"boiling the oceans" makes me think you have no fucking clue about the kind of scale we're talking about here
if every nation exerted every single drop of it's GDP building desalination plants, we wouldn't make the tiniest of dents in the oceans genius
or fire risk
dc is less safe for both shock and fire
if they desalinate ocean water for drinking purposes, the question is what to do with all that salt
answer: process it and take out all of the economically important trace elements, not just lithium
The total lithium content of seawater is very large and is estimated as 230 billion tonnes, where the element exists at a relatively constant concentration of 0.14 to 0.25 parts per million (ppm), or 25 micromolar; higher concentrations approaching 7 ppm are found near hydrothermal vents.
sure, this would put lithium at a high price point, but not that high if the desalination and concentration process is mostly solar powered and on a massive scale for drinking water purposes
i understand that
but if there were some way to make sure the two "copies" do not interact with anything. i didn't say that was remotely possible today, or perhaps ever. just a way out there thought experiment
i get it: they are guaranteed the same white noise, which is fine for encryption purposes (and know if someone snooped, because that would render their white noise dissimilar)
but there is no preserving the integrity of a particle/ wave for transportation purposes
thank you, i learned something
If you're the sort of person who believes any and all business is merely a way to make profit and nobody who creates a company ever actually cares about the task they perform, then sure. Reality is more complex than that.
Re: China. iOS is in the minority in China. Even at the time of the iPhone 6 launch iOS market share was only 20%, but iOS market share always spikes around the time of a new iPhone launch, then falls back down in the other quarters. And China is a special case - Google isn't willing to play ball with the communist government so the services that make Android most useful are all blocked there. Apple cooperates so they can sell iOS as is, getting a built-in advantage. Despite this, Android still dominates.
Well, driving cars in urban centers generally sucks between the traffic and finding parking. The problem is people are too stubborn to get their act together and provide abundant satellite parking and transit links. Sure, driving your car right up to a store is ideal when you're the only one doing it, but there's a reason malls are built with parking on the periphery and pedestrian access at the core. If parking was the most pleasant and convenient way to get a lot of people into a confined area you'd be able to drive right into Disney World and park your car at Space Mountain.
Anything that happens inflates someone's bank account. If governments ban CFCs then people with CFC substitutes get a windfall. If governments don't ban CFCs then makers of sunscreen and skin cancer treatments get a windfall.
This is how capitalism works -- how it's supposed to work. Problems attract capital, which generates profits. But it's also how market solutions fall short. It's better for the public if someone makes a killing replacing CFC than if someone else makes a killing treating skin cancer.
It's a little late to be talking about averting global warming.
isn't quantum entanglement a burgeoning field in quantum cryptography?
quantum key distribution would not be researched if what you say is true
