hard to drive to SFO from Malaysia.
I'll be downstairs beating my nephews in Mario Kart and Cell Damage to avoid those uncomfortable discussions.
Did you even read the article you linked to? Most of those subsidies take the form of things like allowing corporations to deduct expenses from their taxes (much like any other business). One of the supposed subsidies to the oil and gas industry cited in the report is government heating assistance for the poor.
I saw a chart with the US down around 19 per capita, though that data was suspect as it didn't discount international bunkerage consumption.
You can buy a properly signed SSL cert for as little as $9/year (possibly lower), if that is too much then self signed is always available.
Have you ever driven across kansas or western nebraska? I drive a section of interstate (not in kansas or nebraska) every day that if I drove at the proper time I could easily and comfortably do 100+. The route was carefully planned and timed to avoid construction and heavy traffic, he had rabbits running ahead him to make spot issues. The car was comfortble and safe at those speeds. Illegal, yes, but not as unsafe as people are saying.
I would hope one could do 75 no problem on the interstate, the one I drive the speed limit is 70 and when you hit nebraska it jumps to 75.
Personally my commute is short enough that the risk of expensive tickets isn't worth the short decrease in commute so I don't speed, but if limits were higher I'd comfortably drive them.
I've been wearing a Metawatch for almost 2 years now. I have always worn a watch before and like the added functionality of notifications and data from my phone.
I can get 2-3 days life from the metawatch, but charge it nightly.
If my metawatch died I'd be shopping for another smart watch, probably a metawatch frame, but I'd check out the other options before I bought something.
It's nice to not have to take out my phone all the time to check calls, texts, emails. my watch vibrates and I check it to see if I need to take out the phone and deal with it.
I wish they still made station wagons, all they make are SUV's, minivans, and those stupid crossovers. My daughter has CP and can't climb into those elevated POSs, but I need room in the back for a wheelchair.
I read the laws tesla is lobbying for on their website, it's a rather specific exemption from the dealership law for basically them:
"a manufacturer of only all electric-powered or all battery-powered motor vehicles, or a distributor of only all electric-powered or all battery-powered motor vehicles, that (i) owned and operated a new motor vehicle dealership in the United States on or before March 1, 2013, and (ii) has never sold its line make in the United States through an independent franchised new motor vehicle dealership, may own or operate a dealer or dealership, or act in the capacity of a dealer, at any location within the state and may obtain a dealer general distinguishing number under Section 503.029 of the Transportation Code."
"let's write ourselves an exemption, but slam the door on anyone coming after us"
The cellular and phone networks in the US actually have batteries and generators to power them so people can use them when power is out to report those outages. For the POTS network I think the backup is federally mandated, not sure on the cell network.
This article lead me into the world of reaction wheels and their issues. Thanks
From what I can find magnetic bearing reaction wheels weren't available in the torque's required by the large keppler telescope (remember it was a while ago).
oddly enough auto glass repair seems to be the opposite, I had to get some windows replaced and the cheapest quote I got was when I said I only had liability and was self-pay.
The problem is there are plenty of cars out there with OnStar, Toyotaâ(TM)s Safety Connect, SYNC, and other wireless systems and guess what bus the OnStar module is plugged into.
Most android apps are compiled for dalvik and don't care what processor is running dalvik.
Relocate somewhere that coders are cheaper and hire who you want. Or hire someone and let them work remote.
