Or ablate the surface of a small fuel pellet and cause it to implode. Inertial confinement fusion is all about super intense and short-duration shots of energy.
It's still a good idea, but the metrics need to be better thought-out to account for the patients that are being seen. A proper system will also "grade" each patient based on how bad their condition is, and then combine the mortality rates to come up with a metric that reflects how well the doctor is doing at improving outcomes where it is possible to do so.
My 2011 BMW has them, and they work pretty well.
What took him so long?
It is pretty much the only way to fund "free" services of all kinds that have large reach but no direct income. Radio, TV, and most websites would not exist but for it, and it is a meritocracy as well - if the advertized product sucks, or the ad sucks, the advertiser loses their money with no reward. The opposite holds as well - a good product and a good ad can be very beneficial to customers and the advertiser.
Someone needs to cut back on the weed and spend some time in the world of reality here to even bring up the question.
Excellent idea. The minimum wage for any H1B position should be $150k per year, and the employer will pay a 50% payroll tax for each employee hired under that system. It won't hurt the high-end, which the program is supposed to recruit, but sure as hell will end the use of outsourcing firms that skirt the law by mass-hiring H1Bs and then contracting with a firm to replace their IT staffs.
Which turns it from an immigration law issue into a criminal conspiracy.
I second many of the above suggestions. pfSense isn't a bad solution, OpenVPN will work, and little Cisco VPN routers are good too. I'd personally just put a Juniper SSG-5 on each end, for the simple reason that they are available on eBay for around 50 bucks each and are relatively easy to configure.
Hey now, don't laugh at that idea. Sites like Bloomberg could use that to interface their mainframes straight to trader's screens in a browser, and knock a fraction of a second off the update time...
The judge in this case is obviously angered by the plaintiff's behavior, and isn't willing to let the Federal Courts be used as a tool in a shake-down operation.
Now. IF these "Doe" cases actually resulted in real suits against named defendants, the story would be different.
Control freak much?
Yes, but with so many exemptions that nobody actually paid that rate. That was the rate for someone who totally didn't play by any rules. In reality, it topped out somewhere around 20% or so.
Little Miss Muffet..
Or ANY need to internationalize. Hell, my company outright blocks all inbound packets from IP addresses outside of the ARIN blocks. We got tired of Russian and Chinese hack attacks.
