According to CEO Tim Cook, he's unhappy with Apple's diversity numbers and says Apple is working to improve them
Simple solution, Mr. Cook... Just suggest to the Apple board that they replace the CEO with a more "diverse" choice. That way you could be a good example instead of putting other people at a disadvantage because of their race or gender.
2.X requires Mono if you want to run it on Linux or OSX.
KeePassX 2.0 (only alpha releases so far) uses the 2.X database format and has a native Linux/OS X version. I'm using it myself and don't have mono installed. It does have some nuisances, though... The big one for me is that when you save the database, it changes the file's user/group. Also, I don't think there's browser support yet.
The problem with this is that when the government takes on welfare projects, individuals effectively lose their ability to help these people. This, in turn, makes people more selfish: The people who receive welfare checks don't see the personal sacrifice that is made on their behalf and the people who are taxed do not experience the fulfillment of lending a helping hand.
Another big problem with social welfare programs here in the U.S. is that they often result in able-bodied people refusing to work because they will lose their benefits. It's really terrible to see people become dependent on the government for no good reason, and I've seen this first-hand.
