Who roused Joseph McCarthy from the grave?
I know you jest, but I'm wondering if it really couldn't become a thing. Not 24/7 coding. Systems analysis, modeling, coding, QA, etc.
How is it blackmail? In this case it appears as though the Police had no idea they were being watched by anything other than their own patrol dash cam (if it was pointed in that direction).
Can they start them much higher though? They already start higher than educators and fire fighters where I am. They can move up the ranks, and then side to side in the private industry making some pretty comfortable money.
Are you kidding me on #5? My local news often has stories about LEO "doing their job right". Everything from horse and dog training, to helicopter training, to crime scenes. The thing is no one cares. No one cares if anyone does their job right. That's just the news. Most of us have "thankless" feeling jobs.
Take some of that perk money and put it forward training instead of trying to find experienced experts in brand new tech.
Bingo. It doesn't have to be the start menu as imagined in 7, but it CAN NOT require you to type to find things. Tap, click, hover, whatever. But keep the original structure of shortcuts.
A common attitude is "we already discriminate based on your credit score, age, looks, disability, race, and gender (even though those last 3 aren't supposed to be done). so why not your record?" A lot of rich folks also seem to be truly afraid of those with (notable, not a DUI) criminal records. Like an untouchability in India or something. Source: Charged with 2 felonies 7 years ago.
The "Reply to This" button and the end of the comments are mashing together. So now beta is beta, but original is the new alpha?
I took a class in college called Psych of Personal Growth or something like that, the professor had some interesting topics I didn't see coming: one of them was how much we under-estimate marketing's effect on us. This type of emotional advertising is actually the most effective. Think of coke, they get their logo and slogans and products all over the place. In things that have nothing inherently to do with food or beverage even. This creates long-lasting associations, especially in the young. Setting them up for a 'lifetime of coke' hopefully (and often it works). I just had an video of a polar bear drinking it play in my head since I started writing this, and I don't drink the stuff. The hope with emotional advertising being that it appeals to emotions. Down? Grab a coke! Tired? Grab a refreshing coke. Feel like a winner... and on and on. Do you really think these huge companies would do this kind of advertising so much if it wasn't effective? The effectiveness of NEW advertising is (drastically) reduced with age, but there are more younger people and these "emotional advertising bonds" for lack of a better term can persist in people after long after new marketing stops being effective on them ("He only drinks Budweiser".). People tend to under-estimate the effect this has on them greatly.
Who suggested it was a right?
Im taking a class on Windows 8.1 client administration and its very hard to actually learn this shit for exactly this reason. So many of MS's new names are not even self-descriptive! It's horrible! The MS Press book is written half like a sales pitch. The FOSS world is very far from perfect, but at least the conventions make sense once you learn why they are the way they are. Microsoft's latest round of technologies to lock everything down (a large % of the class) and confuse the shit out of users with marketing gobledeegook! I swear I'd rather be back on 95 than use this latest shit they are serving up (8.1/8), if only there were more viable competitors.
Some people buy loud motorcycles, or modify the exhaust on a bike because they're under the (somewhat) mistaken belief that it will make them safer. I'm not talking about harley or superbike guys who rev for no reason (not good for engines). These guys draw a lot of attention to themselves but are not the majority of motorcyclists.
Smart motorcyclists WEAR EAR PLUGS! Trust me. Not everyone wants to go deaf. You might think "Oh but i can't hear impending danger", but you can, you just won't fatigue from the insane wind noise, your own engine noise, and of course traffic.
