Mars One offers two payload opportunities for paying mission contributors. Proposals can take the form of scientific experiments, technology demonstrations, marketing and publicity campaigns, or any other suggested payload. “Previously, the only payloads that have landed on Mars are those which NASA has selected,” said Bas Lansdorp, “We want to open up the opportunity to the entire world to participate in our mission to Mars by sending a certain payload to the surface of Mars.”
One burst from one location in the sky, then weeks or months later, another burst from another location in the sky. I don't think a pattern recognition algorithm is going to help you much.
Actually, as someone who is a pretty conservative driver, I welcomed the option to let worse drivers subsidize my premiums in exchange for them tracking my driving for a while. I could care less that they know (for example) that I always signal turns and lane changes and don't aggressively accelerate or stop. I could also care less that people who can't demonstrate the same behavior are seen as a higher risk and charged a higher premium.
...except you, of course, since you're on my \. frinds list and all...
Well, if you ever get divorced, better make sure you have never driven anywhere your ex-wife's attorney could make hay knowing about.
I haven't bought any of this, don't know anyone (personally) who has bought any of this, and don't know why anyone would buy any of this.
I guess, however, some people may have more money than brains. I wish they would put it into Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Rockethub, instead of this crap.
Sure, he did all kinds of dirt-gathering in order to try and impeach Clinton, but no one took him seriously.
Susan McDougal called. She wants to have a word with you.
I predict that if some fine day a Federal prosecutor (independent or otherwise) decides for some bogus reason that they want to hassle you, you will take it very seriously indeed.
I agree Whitewater was, like Benghazi, a fake scandal, but fake scandals can hurt real people.
In geopolitics, taking powers you do not actually have always leads to a reaction. Wait for it.
What in the hell are the US police doing arresting anyone in a foreign country? Is the Maldives part of the empire now?
And, yes, the Russians are totally correct in calling this kidnapping. Look for some poor American tourist or businessman to be nabbed in a tit-for-tat.
It has been a number of years since I was asked to turn on a device, even when I go through enhanced security. So, unless this is accompanied by a "we are now pushing to turn on all electronics" it is not exactly a prohibition.
Then, you plug it in. They do have jacks at airports...
That is one advantage of using the SLS for the Europa-clipper - it would be a Hohmann trajectory, with no subsequent Earth-flybys to get people anxious.
Viking, Voyager, Galileo, Cassini - these were the so called "Flagship" missions - big, envelope-pushing missions intended to substantially advance our knowledge of the solar system. (MSL is really another, but Mars is special for NASA and so they don't call it that.) They have somewhat fallen out of favor, as they are very expensive and prone to delays and overruns, but it is hard to see how there can be substantial advances, particularly in the outer solar system, without them.
The next mission of this class will, Congress willing, be the Europa-clipper, which is slowly getting to the AO stage. I can hardly wait.
What is wrong with these people? Are they unaware that such has been proposed time and again by past luminaries?.
Nothing is wrong with them , as they still get rewarded for making bad predictions.
No-one ever lost money betting against an A.I. prognosticator.
That depends. How often do you get fired?
At a minimum, at least as often as you get fired.
