with the subtropical Mordor region being more like Los Angeles or western Texas.
I do believe that anyone that bothered to read the books would know that Mordor was arid, volcanic in climate, hardly subtropical. L.A. is temperate bordering on semi-arid, and West Texas is certainly semi-arid to arid, a bit more like Mordor minus the volcanoes, fishers and orcs. (And, did I forget to mention the giant spider, spawn of Ungoliant at the back door?) That Mordor? Texas ain't anything like that Mordor. But, then again there is evil that lives there. Hmmmm....
Senator: "What good is electricity in the house?"
Engineer: "Senator, in 20 years, you'll be taxing it."
In time, governments will try to tax and control it, perhaps even stopping colonization or private enterprise, probably even cheered on by some around here who, one presumes, were completely down with Europe looting the New World to feed their governments' voracious appetites for cash, dead-set against any colonies not their own, much less independence.
Huh, what?!?!?! See this. Ownership has been declared and agreed that the moon belongs--literally--to everyone. Unless you want to renegotiate that (good luck, you're gonna need it) or start a very nasty war, mining the moon or colonizing the moon are out. Plus, you'll have protests and backlash the likes of which God has never seen.
I believe the British would say that applying for a MS IT position in Seattle is like "carrying coals to Newcastle"...
MS Stack software developer
I am just taking a stab in the dark here as I don't really know, but maybe there are a lot of "MS Stack software" developers in the home of MS. If they got a ton of them already in town why import more?
Let us know when they work in the rain
Or, when they can place a package out of the rain.
"Honest officer. It just fell off a drone that flew by!"
Ha! I never thought of it that way. Duck hunt takes on a whole new meaning. Score some Amazon swag.
When there are thousands of drones flying around all the time it will be impossible to tell which is a good drone and which is a bad drone. Sure, the air traffic controllers may know, but we won't.
Are you crazy! The ones towing ads through the sky will be easy to distinguish from the others. Those will NOT be the govt. drones.
I have been in academia for more than twenty years and can say without a doubt that being around experts in a field cannot be replaced.
What happens if you want to do something interesting in the field and can't afford to chill with experts for twenty years?
Then computational neuroscience is not going to be your bag. I also learned in this time that coming to college doesn't always mean graduating with a degree in order to find out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But, if you want to do scientific research and have any impact then you should go the research and academia route. If you want to just play, go play. You don't have to be an enrolled student to go to the library and read journals, although a lot of them are no longer printed so sooner would be better. If you're that enthusiastic about it you could always subscribe to a few journals. Here's a few to look at:
That last one is a list of pertinent journals in the field.
The most important thing to get out of college *is* figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your life. If that's dropping out to start your own neuroscience company then by all means go forth and conquer!
Technologies come and go. I didn't see folks up in arms when the roaming knife sharpeners and milk delivery men went out of business. Those going away destroyed jobs. Moving from POTS to digital IP-based communications is a good thing. The digital service can be restored a lot faster, and there are excellent cell phone tower replacements.
The only thing really lost is local 911 services. Those things were a disaster waiting to happen, anyway, as the cost of the analog infrastructure was killing localities as they tried to grow. Something better needs to be implemented and sooner is always better than later.
The one advantage POTS has is that it does take a court order for them to tap the line. But, I am guessing that laws will be changing soon and some of our privacy and security concerns will get addressed. Again, sooner is always better than later.
Study Linking GM Maize To Rat Tumors Is Retracted
Thank heaven for that! Somebody pass the corn please.
