Sounds to me like they just need to build a really big wall. Problem solved!
I've found Udacity to have some pretty good online CS classes. They have been expanding into other areas as well lately, but their focus has mainly been CS. I thought the Web Applications class was really well done. Python is even my new favorite scripting language because of it.
It seems more and more like we're the real leaders in North America now.
The US is just making an effort to be leading from the rear. 'Merica!
No, fibromyalgia is primarily just a lot of pain.
Stranger in a Strange Land. Our cultures tend to want to kill anyone that is too far from our version of normal.
FTFA: "Hart, CEO of International Game Technology, a gaming machine manufacturer, told the Yahoo board that the board asked her to step down from her seat." She is CEO of IGT, and the IGT board of directors are the ones that asked her to resign from Yahoo because it is a huge distraction.
//Full disclosure: I work at IGT
These beers only have that thick mouth feel because they use nitrogen instead of good ol' CO2. I would guess that the process described above would remove most of either of those from the beer.
What you aren't taking into account is why a lot of the states appearing at the top of the list are there, "leeching government money" as you put it. They are some of the states with the lowest population and income levels, but home to federal projects that cost a lot of money to maintain that provide a service the entire country (arguably I suppose) benefits from. New Mexico has two of the largest national laboratories in the country, Los Alamos and Sandia. As I'm sure you know they are responsible for designing and building our nuclear arsenal, which I am sure has a pretty high price tag, along with tons of other advanced research projects. Three of the others that pop out at me are North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana. These three states were the ones that actually housed the bulk of the US nuclear arsenal, presumably because every other state said "No F-ing Way". Look here for the list of air force bases that maintained the Minuteman missiles. I grew up in the part of MT where they had those missiles, and they were always doing training drills along the mountain front back in the 80's and 90's before the cold war ended.
eldavojohn writes "The first man-made craft to do so is now entering a 'cosmic purgatory' between solar systems and entering an interstellar space of the Milky Way Galaxy. With much anticipation, Voyager 1 is now 'in a stagnation region in the outermost layer of the bubble around our solar system. Voyager is showing that what is outside is pushing back.' After three decades the spacecraft is still operating and apparently has enough power and fuel to continue to do so until 2020. The first big piece of news? "We've been using the flow of energetic charged particles at Voyager 1 as a kind of wind sock to estimate the solar wind velocity. We've found that the wind speeds are low in this region and gust erratically. For the first time, the wind even blows back at us. We are evidently traveling in completely new territory. Scientists had suggested previously that there might be a stagnation layer, but we weren't sure it existed until now." This process could take months to years to completely leave the outer shell but already scientists are receiving valuable information."

http://physics.ucsd.edu/do-the-math/2011/08/recipe-for-climate-change/ Most of us should have taken at least a basic chemistry class at one point. It's pretty obvious that the amount of fuel we burn on an annual basis produces a lot of CO2 as a byproduct. It seems rather naive to me to think that adding that much of ANY compound to the atmosphere will have no effect at all.
According to TFA: "We will not be following the model of using standard field-effect transistors (FETs), but will pursue devices that use ballistic conductors and quantum interference. We are headed straight into using the electron wave effects in graphene."
As much as I hate to say it, you shouldn't count them as completely unreliable. They were the first to uncover the John Edwards scandal. IIRC, it took the major media outlets a few months to finally pick up on it.
You can have your weather back on one condition; you have to take the Palins back, and keep them quiet.
Share on, you crazy pirate.
