The large number of replies to the parent indicate there are any number of folks on Slashdot who don't realize that no true pressure cookers have glass tops: The glass would break under the pressure. Duuh.
More to the point, do we know that the US Capitol Police didn't make the same mistake, and blew up somebody's crockpot?
Let me correct myself. I care that four U.S. nationals died, leaving behind grieving loved ones.
But Mr. Obama didn't kill them. Mrs. Clinton didn't kill them.Terrorists did.
Mr. Obama isn't running for president. Whatever was or wasn't done in Benghazi is insignificant compared to the war crimes of Bush, Cheney et al.
Who's more likely to start another needless war if elected president? Mrs. Clinton, or Jeb Bush?
Guess what Slashdot, people read other websites. I don't read
Thanks for the link, which confirms that:
1) FCC "allows" but does not "mandate" carriers to impose an access charge. Do you know of any telcos that don't charge this, out of the goodness of their hearts?
2) If you don't pay the universal service charge directly, you'll pay it indirectly. The Tooth Fairy won't pay it for you.
If you still have POTS phone service, look at the carrier access charge, the universal service charge, etc. These are mandated by FCC (not Congress) and they only go up.
The prospect of new, ever-increasing FCC fees on your internet bill is a valid concern.
There must be some organized effort of Google fanchildren that mods down posts critical of them.
Obv. Google isn't satisfied with the amount of information they already have on you, now they want to bug your bedroom.
No, no, no. The $30/hr figure is not what the client will pay. It's what the low-ball recent-immigrant non-English-speaking recruiter will pay. I often receive the same job listing from 3-4 "recruiters" at different rates. Probably the client would be happy to pay $75/hr for somebody who really knows Hadoop.
Because none of these goddamn companies hire directly I have to choose the one who will pocket the least amount of my bill rate.
does that make you a Sucker?
You forgot the part about candidate-financed relocation.
1. Get swim suit made of magic fabric.
2. Swim, thereby heating the pool.
3. Say goodbye to expensive pool-heating bills!
The friction from the road generates heat, which is converted by the tire back to electricity, which runs the car!
The faster you go, the better the mileage you get! In fact, cars like these can achieve near-infinite mileage! (YMMV.)
What's not to like?
Obv. you've never flown in an Airbus.
