I clicked through to the article. I'm not sure what this has to do with "experiencing" race. When people talk about racism it is about how people treat them because of their skin color but this looks like a virtual mirror that turns your skin color dark. It might have some minor effects on my behavior but it doesn't really instruct me about what it is to actually be someone of another race.
Of those types of laws that I have read, they have been very specific. Even with the precedent that corporations are people, the wording doesn't apply to corporate entities.
Practically nothing, but denying a religious exemption in authoring the law bears the threat of an expensive battle over the constitutionality of the law and probably court ordered delays in implementation.
Do you understand the "why" of stand your ground and castle? It is an extension of self defense justifications. Self defense justifications are for protection against crimes that result in intentional, direct, grievous harm to a specific person; things like rape and murder. Online interactions just don't bear those consequences in any normal case (maybe at some point for connected medical implants); certainly not in the case of Sony protecting itself from monetary loss. Anyone trying to extend SYG or castle that direction is undermining the entire justice system. SYG, castle, and self defense exist because the justice system is not fast enough to protect victims from irreversible damage from the most heinous of crimes. Property loss can wait on investigation, prosecution, and judgement.
Just put on Comcast's hat, say thank you for calling Comcast support, and beat them with the pistol; it will be the best Comcast service call they have ever made.
Both sides of the glass need to be cleaned at some point. Why not brushes on both sides?
I've got several friends in law enforcement. According to them, because of incidents around the country they've had to have tactical training for dealing with a knife wielding attacker. A knife wielding attacker can close and stab a standing officer before he can draw and fire his service weapon at about 10 yards. If we are talking about a novice with a gun and a novice with a knife, then lethality for both men are going to drop significantly beyond that range. Don't underestimate a knife; I've had several skilled people from many backgrounds say it is the scariest thing you will ever face.
What pool of money would a resource officer come from and what pool of money does the shooter detection system come from? Are they the same? Just because we can pay for a shooter detection system doesn't mean that money can legally be applied to a resource officer's salary instead.
More interesting: what happens to the footage actually contains something covered by DMCA?
I'm really confused here. We've got the bankers pressuring the retailers for higher security or they will legally pursue them to cover the damages. Isn't this the picture perfect case where capitalism should solve the problem? Why are the retailers running to the government for regulation? Shouldn't the market solution be cheapest for the pure blooded capitalists of retail?
I've got a couple places where I would really like some smart bulbs but it is just under the threshold that the price isn't worth the convenience.
I found my parents' praise over my intelligence just pointless. I haven't continued the tradition with my children. Not that I don't praise them, just that I don't go out of my way to praise them over intelligence when it is irrelevant. My oldest is in school and more practical praise doesn't seem to give him any more interest in school tasks than I had.
The motivation behind this paper was probably the intuition that language choice greatly influences KISS. But frankly, I've never had a real project where language choice wasn't driven by external forces.
I work in a building secured with magnetic doors. The reasoning behind default open is that if an emergency happens and the power system fails there is a higher liability for the doors to fail closed and rescuers be unable to reach victims than for the doors to fail open and someone break in.
People are paid to serve on juries without any question of partiality. I personally don't mind using my free time to vote, but I can see the problem with forcing low income voters to use unpaid leave to vote. If I've got to choose between the rent and voting, then it makes my choice pretty clear. Higher income voters are going to get more flexibility to vote and that will probably swing things to the Republicans to an extent.
