The reason that universities keep raising tuition costs is because of the abundant number of loans out there and students using them to pay for tuition costs. If those heavily subsidized loans dried up, tuition would eventually come back down. Students couldn't get loans, and couldn't pay the prices and the number of students going to school would slow down and universities would start to feel the hit. When there is a basically infinite supply of cheap money (government loans), then there is ZERO reason for universities to lower tuition. In fact, they would be stupid to do so.
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).
Didn't your parents ever teach you that nothing in life is free. The reason it's "free" is because the government is stealing money from every citizen to pay the universities to stay open. Teachers don't work for nothing, janitors that clean the classrooms don't work for free, etc. etc. Wake up.
The best way to reform those massive government agencies, is to eliminate them. The Constitution was a limit on government, we should adhere to that ideal.
That's about as open as you can get.
Some people are actually gullible enough to think that "net neutrality" is the intention of the bill to begin with. The intention is to slowly but surely allow the government to sensor the internet. Just look at what the UN is proposing today.
Just because you oppose the government getting it's hands on freedom of the internet, doesn't make you a corporate love child. Wake the hell up people. The government is the root of almost all the problems we have today. If you don't like Comcast...stop paying them money. Go elsewhere. duh. There are always alternatives to suckballs corporations, but when the government get's it's hands on you...you are a slave to it.
The last thing we need right now is the government getting it's hands all over the internet via some trojan called Net Neutrality.
I really like SGU more than the other Stargate shows. This completely sucks! Not much of a reason to watch syfy now at all.
After Learning the Syntax, the VERY next thing to do is run far far away from Java. It's a disaster of a platform. RUN!!! Save yourself.
If you really enjoy pain, then use Java. If you like making the simple problems very complex, use Java. If you like waiting for app servers to restart a lot...use Java. If you like lots of
complicated and noisy xml files just to do simple things, use Java. If you like using lots of resources to serve up simple pages, use Java. Other than that...Java is great!
"Findings from the report point to the continued growth of attacks through Web applications. Web application vulnerabilities continue to make up the largest percentage of the reported vulnerability volume, with roughly 78 percent of all vulnerabilities resulting from them."
That is just stupid. It's like saying the code that the folks at CNN put into their pages is responsible for vulnerabilities in the browser itself. dumb. I think this man is confused between what a web browser is and what a web application is.
I have to agree. Syfy sounds like a some cutesy pre-teen comic book character name. Then again....this is the same channel that shows 'pro' wrestling ?!!? wtf.
This sounds like the beginning of the end of the channel. They must be following the AIG's of the world.
1. Bring about company FAIL.
2. Get bailed out.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Jerome Niedermeier ruled that a man charged with transporting child pornography on his laptop across the Canadian border has a Fifth Amendment right not to turn over the passphrase to prosecutors. The Fifth Amendment protects the right to avoid self-incrimination.
Niedermeier tossed out a grand jury's subpoena that directed Sebastien Boucher to provide "any passwords" used with his Alienware laptop. "Compelling Boucher to enter the password forces him to produce evidence that could be used to incriminate him," the judge wrote in an order dated November 29 that went unnoticed until this week. "Producing the password, as if it were a key to a locked container, forces Boucher to produce the contents of his laptop."
Especially if this ruling is appealed, U.S. v. Boucher could become a landmark case. The question of whether a criminal defendant can be legally compelled to cough up his encryption passphrase remains an unsettled one, with law review articles for the last decade arguing the merits of either approach. (A U.S. Justice Department attorney wrote an article in 1996, for instance, titled "Compelled Production of Plaintext and Keys.")"
