She said that communism is good at dealing with that kind of thing, not that democracy was incapable of fixing it. She made the rather obvious point that communist states find it easier to act for the collective good, while in democracies people tend to act in their own interests.
Yep. That's why the Soviet Union and China had no environmental problems at all, while the United States rots in a cesspool of filth.
What's that? The Soviet Union and China were some of the most polluted countries on earth? Really!?
An easement is a limited right or interest in the land of another entitling the holder to use, privilege or benefit.
Eminent domain is the legal right and procedures for a municipality to take title and possession of private property for public use.
You might be able to get an easement by using eminent domain, but the more normal process is to purchase an easement. Another way is what happens in a subdivision, where the developer defines where the easements are for such things as utility services (wires, fiber optics, water mains, sewer pipes).
The problem is, there are a lot of candidates out there now. A LOT.
That's the exact opposite of the experience at the company I work for. My department has been trying to hire 6 software engineers with two or more years of C# experience for most of this year. So far, we've managed to hire two. Not sure what the reason is, but there is a dearth of applications from people with said C# experience.
Maybe it's that we're not a typical software company doing web stuff (we do PC apps that configure our HW products).
Maybe it's HR filtering wrongly.
Maybe it's that we're in Wisconsin, instead of either coast.
Any more ideas?
No one seems to realize the NIF is just to study fusion for weapons research. It has no hope of ever leading to an energy source.
People don't realize this because it is NOT true.
NIF does not have a single mission. A big part is weapons research, but that's not all they do.
Below is a quote from their web site:
Achieving nuclear fusion in the laboratory is at the heart of the directorate's three complementary missions:
* Helping ensure the nation's security without nuclear weapons testing (see National Security).
* Blazing the path to a carbon-free energy future (see Energy for the Future).
* Achieving breakthroughs in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, materials science, the use of lasers in medicine, radioactive and hazardous waste treatment, particle physics, and X-ray and neutron science (see Understanding the Universe).
Last sentence of your quote from Wikipedia:
"Since then, improved strains of golden rice have been developed containing sufficient provitamin A to provide the entire dietary requirement of this nutrient to people who eat about 75g of golden rice per day."
Average rice consumption per capita per day is higher than that it the Philippines according to a number of sources.
So it is "high enough in and of itself to solve vitamin A deficiency."
