Looks interesting. However, I wonder how I might be able to use this, since I can barely write with a pen anymore. I much prefer Swype these days, and can swipe whole words very quickly.
Here's a visualization of her layoffs at HP: http://carlyfiorina.org/
And this is what she had to say about it: "I would have done them all faster."
it isn't the total, it is which legislation it involved.
Oh, one side always thinks the other side is worse. Actually, both sides think that way. And that is how you know you're on one side or the other side.
Here is my question, which is worse? Deleting 18.5 minutes of audio recordings or erasing an entire email server used by the Secretary of State for Official Purposes?
Both are equally wrong. For the same reasons. One guy had to resign in shame, the other is running for president and proud of her accomplishments. Which side is worse? Meh, I can't hardly tell them apart.
I know plenty of people who know how to Google something, spew it forth as if it is some universal truth, only to be 100% wrong, because they don't know anything about anything. These are the people who know how to Google, but don't know enough to be able to tell the good vs the bad.
There are three kinds of people
1) People who don't know Google or how to use it
2) People who think they know something because they Googled it
3) People who actually know something, and use Google to enhance their information.
#3 people are the only ones who can have an engaging conversation about the topic without needing to use Google.
It is easy to say science isn't political, however it is political if you want government funding.
I want research that says X, I get my buddies in the Y party to create a funding bill for research that says X. I can create science that says X, and get more funding, therefore I say X. If I say not X, I don't get any more funding, and have to find a new job flipping hamburgers at McD's.
Science isn't political
My locality posts speed limit signs in residential areas despite the fact that there are statewide speed limits of 25MPH in residential areas, and despite the fact that drivers are required to know this to pass the driving test.
Redundant != pointless or worthless. In both cases, it reduces the operator's ability to say "I had no idea!"
Its not the X party, it is the Y party (where X and Y are the two major parties, and interchangeable)
The IRS is politically motivated, which is why the likes of Lois Learner are the ones protected by the AG office from any sort of investigation.
1) I heard about it first on the news
2) I am angry and will get to the bottom of this!
3) Not a Smidgeon of evidence (no investigation either looking for said evidence)
4) Nothing but a Phony scandal
5) Old news.
My take on the whole thing, it is only a scandal with the OTHER side does it. Which is why I am a libertarian, both sides are corrupt, and saying X side is more corrupt than Y, is oversimplification (and not true)
does enjoying sexual titillation make you an asshole?
It does if you're enjoying it at work while sitting next to me.
If a 63% higher rate isn't a big deal to you, then I would be happy to be your lender/banker.
Idolatry necessarily involves worship. Without the worship component, it's just a statue/painting/whatever.
Exactly. From our perspective, they're idiots joining a fruitless cause that's destined to fail. From their perspective, their lives already suck, they can't feed their families, and this is the only way they can see to bring about change, or to at least attention -- to not go quietly into the night. To be clear, their frustration is usurped by those who are willing to use it to their own ends, but the frustration and hopelessness are the prerequisites. The tendency toward violence is inversely proportional to quality of life and the economy. People who have their basic needs met are much less likely to be violent, especially en masse.
