My company just gave me a second monitor instead.
Eventually it would fall on congress to not pay congress, and they've already pointed out during the shutdowns: Sorry. It is against the constitution for congress not to pay itself...
Look at the Tennesee Valley Authority. It isn't a model that would work with every government service and the poverty of the region isn't a model of all poverty. However, it is a successful government project that took taxpayer seed money, is operating off of payment for services to taxpayers while still being part of the big bad federal bureaucracy, and lifted a huge group out of rampant poverty.
Moderation +4 100% Funny Hey look. I just found four people who have never driven in Atlanta.
To top it off, if you ask a southerner where the worst drivers are then they will say almost without hesitation: Atlanta.
I'd be talking to a lawyer. Sounds like someone at Paypal owes $50k to Mr. Hiroshima.
The reasoning behind learning decision theory is typically for humans the quality of choice criteria is inversely proportional to the number of choices. So a little competition is good but increasing competition trends towards horrible.
Oh for some mod points.
Presumably the idea that opposite sex coworkers aren't forced into the same situation is sexual harassment lawsuits. Such a policy is hinged on an assumption of sexual orientation that is outdated.
My parents trusting me with far more expensive computers as a toddler played a key role in my love of technology and eventual career. A few hundred bucks today is going to be much cheaper than having to keep a lib-arts major in my basement till he's in his mid 30s.
Here is the thing. My personal experience is that they are targeting articles based on the political slant they have assigned to my personal profile. I get that the slant sells but since yahoo seems to have a system that can deliver slant both ways in an semi-intelligent manner, I don't understand why they would alienate roughly half of their US audience. It isn't like liberal leaning Americans are too good for it, Huffington Post is probably the second most popular news source I see represented in my social network and it is overwhelmingly my liberal friend's online favorite news source and definitely has a frequent liberal slant.
I definitely notice the similarities to political boundaries although I didn't notice the coloration. I have a problem with the business case for them choosing to be similar to Fox News. I can tell from personal experience they have been experimenting with user targeted slant with their news articles. If they can slant based on what they think they know about me then why in the world would they only do conservatism?
Because they are run by "Normals"?
I'm probably pretty similar. However, as a counterpoint, because you are a gearhead then you probably have the background to come up to speed quicker than what he called normal. You say you aren't a car guy but I bet in a couple sentences that you could pretty well get regenerative braking where their target normal audience is going to need a full article with diagrams and pictures.
Ok, so he wants to deliver nerdy news to people who might be interested but not nerds. That fits Yahoo's overall scheme. The problem is (this guy who is in charge of reporting about the internet) from the way he drew his map, he not only doesn't understand the distribution of technology work in the US, he doesn't even seem to understand how the internet makes even the proper inclusion of those pointless.
