- Women in open-source are more competent than men? This is the hypothesis that the authors support the most. They suggest it somes about due to survivorship bias and/or self-selection and/or higher implicit performance-standards in the female population of open-source coders.
In my experience, this is not limited to open-source. Survivorship bias seems the most obvious explanation, given the bias against women when their gender is identified causes many to leave the industry, or stay away to start with.
36% ads, 30% headlines/graphics, 34% header/whitespace.
That sounds like the reason I stopped buying the magazine. Especially after Conde Nast bought it and it slimmed back down to its original mid-90's size, but kept the ad-ratio of the late-90's/early 2000's period.
Remember Wired? That brought back some good early-2000 memories.
People still bought Wired after they sold out in '98?
However, if you are doing highway driving, the manual wins, every time.
Are you sure? My CVT sits below 2000rpm at 70mph. I don't think I've seen a manual gearbox with a low enough ratio to acheive that. Highway driving is where the fuel economy is best with a CVT, as city driving uses a lot of acceleration and idling, where the CVT loses its advantage of keeping the engine in its most efficient range.
we actually "know" exactly what they're providing and it IS basic internet service. All of the internet.
That would make this page rather redundant then. "Optimise for feature phones" - what they are offering actually seems more like WAP. It might still work for Africa, but India is already well served by LTE networks and cheap Chinese smartphones.
Why should the government be in the business of protecting local food sellers (and telling me what I can and can't eat)?
Because the government is the one who gets to pick up the tab when your local food industry has been destroyed by the multinational companies that are dumping their product, and for the health effects (even if the government doesn't pay directly for health, they pay indirectly through the effect poor health has on the economy). The government is the one who gets to pick up the tab when the local internet industry is destroyed because they don't fit into Facebook's internet.org ecosystem so there is no longer a market for their services, and for the long-term effect on education of being able to access only a limited sandbox instead of the Internet.
But when you're starving, do you really want the government telling McDonalds that they can't give you free food because that wouldn't be fair to Burger King?
No, but I do want the government telling McDonalds that they can't give me free food because of the effect it will have on my health, and the livelihoods of local food sellers.
In this case, it is trivially easy to write software to distinguish this "hack" from genuine photos.
Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
