Musk strikes me more of a Howard Hughes. Let's hope he doesn't start bottling his urine
This the kind of lead-in you'd expect for the beginning of a Godzilla-style movie.
But it all looks cool and futuristic-y when it is on Star Trek.
What does this have to do with America? There have been actuaries around well before there was an America. Some of the best known mathematicians we think of today were actuaries, which was their day job.
In the early to mid-seventies we did the bomb drills (I think they called them "emergency drills") where the siren posted on top of the tower right next to the elementary school went off once a month (the first Wednesday, if I recall correctly). At that time the teachers didn't insist we crawl under the desks any more, so that is probably a sign that the fear was waning. I haven't seen any of those sirens in a very long time.
Yes, but somehow I think that his shareholdings are probably a little bit larger than most of the million of other shareholders. He probably has a little bit more sway in the shareholder voting than you and your million friends do as well.
Isn't that all handled these days in the tzdata file?
Don't forget the third type: the ones who can't figure out why people get so worked up angry about an hour difference, and couldn't care either way.
Rehnquist wrote a very interesting book The Supreme Court that not only talks about the history of the court and some of its important cases (he did not include any cases that were decided by any judges that he served with), but he also described very nicely the day-to-day workings of a case moving through the system. I found it to be very interesting reading.
It's part of Gödel's incompleteness theorem: for any list of acronyms, there will always be acronyms that are true, but that are unlisted wthin the list.
I should add that although I have only written a handful of Amazon reviews, mine are mostly highly rated because products that have work well for me (or at least met or exceeded my expectations) are almost the only ones I write about. If I ended up on the bad end of a lemon, I would probably write a review about it, but that hasn't happened to me. I would like to think that if I was part of a program where I was sent free stuff to use and review, that I would be honest in the ratings I'd give.
I'm surprised that spam is still a lucrative business model, and I'm surprised that spam is still relevant enough to garner the attention of researchers.
I'm glad that Amazon started calling out which reviewers received the products for free. I have noticed (and this is not based on any kind of rigorous analysis) that those reviews seem to be generally 4 or 5 star reviews.
Too bad. We actually make an on-topic reference to one of the most overused memes on Slashdot, and not a single point of moderation love is thrown our way. Kids these days just don't know their history.
They're trying to figure out if ants can be trained to sort tiny screws in space.
