Would the flight crew, or even a passenger on the plane, know that the engine has a radio in it? Is it within the realm of possibilities that they took the batteries out of the plane and connected them to the engine's radio to use as a beacon? If the plane crash landed on solid ground, could the emergency radio beacon been destroyed, perhaps due to blast damage? Were any individuals on the plane that had a background in electronics that could MacGyver something up?
Not exactly. They guarantee the safety of a depositor's accounts in member banks up to $250,000 for each deposit ownership category in each insured bank. So if you dump $500k into a CD and the bank goes bust you only get $250k. Credit unions fall under a different program, the NCUA, and are insured up to $250,000. If you have a million dollars, you would be smart to not put all your money in one place.
Can most animals also see infrared light? This may not be commonly known, but we, warm blooded animals, glow. Our body heat cause the emission of photons in the infrared spectrum, this is how forward looking infrared (FLIR) cameras work. Anyways, I was just wondering if animals can see other animals glowing at night.
"Who is being irresponsible here? The parent? Or Google?"
The child, and Google for facilitating the child. The parent can lawfully, and in good faith, dispute the charges with their credit card company.
It doesn't matter what is in the contract with apple or bank. The charge put onto the credit card was an act of fraud perpetrated by the child. The card holder did not contractually consent to the transaction. The only recourse for Apple or the bank is to have the child criminally prosecuted or commence a civil suit to try and hold the parent(s) responsible for the child's actions. Good luck with ether one of those, as Apple facilitated the child. Furthermore, because the card holder did not consent to the charges, they can lawfully, and in good faith, dispute the charges with their credit card company. The parent has a clear path of recourse against Apple, which is to dispute the charges with the credit card company.
No. Strictly speaking, the only person authorized to transact purchases on your credit card is you. This is why you need to sign for purchases with a credit card in real life; it's a contract, and at the end of the day the card holder did not consent (contractually) to the purchases and can lawfully dispute the charges. In this instance the child was the one who defrauded the bank. However, because they're not likely to even comprehend the crime they perpetrated the child wound not be prosecuted criminally. Technically there is nothing stopping the bank from coming after the parent of the child for civil damages, the bank would have start a civil suit at law to hold the parents responsible for the child's actions. The bank doesn't have the resources to do that in every case so they simply accept it as a cost of doing business.
This was already tried with the Tassimo, T Disc, system. Each T disc has a bar code on the label that controls brewing parameters. The new Keurig VUE system is the same, and will fail miserably, simply because it's not compatible with K-cups. What happened was the K-cup patents expired, so Keurig developed a new, patented, cup design. However, K-cups are now patent unencumbered, ubiquitous in the market, and very cheap to produce. With time, you'll see the price of K-cups come down drastically, in response to competition, and this action will cement K-cups as the de facto standard for single serving coffee.
It will parallel that of Microsoft's Surface RT tablets. Think of K-cups as Windows/x86 programs, with the new system being a Windows/arm platform.
and what makes you think the corporations wouldn't employ their own militia in the absence of that govt protection?
Do you have any idea how much it takes to create weapons grade uranium? Umm no.
We must absolutely do something to disincentivize wealth hoarding; these people are mentally ill to believe it's ok to hoard such vast amounts of money. One simple solution is to institute a tiered tax system that's relative to the national poverty level, for example:
100% poverty level = 0%.
1000% poverty level = 20%.
10000% poverty level = 30%
100000% poverty level = 40%
1000000% poverty level = 75%
10000000% poverty level = 85%
100000000% poverty level = 95%
1000000000% poverty level = 99%
Since the federal reserve is a private institution, wouldn't printing new bills be copyright infringement? Furthermore, since the copyright symbol was left off and it was commissioned by the goverment doesn't that mean it's public domain?
What's the value of a copyleft currency? Wouldn't that be just another fiat currency like any other?
What is the root cause? I drive a 32" LCD TV with my Early 2011 MBP, it worked flawlessly in Lion, but Mavericks I have notice many glitches... I just assumed it was Apple's reworking of the multiple monitor code that was flaky. I seem to recall these machines have dual video drivers. If it's the internal ATI Radeon GPU that is faulty, can you force it into internal graphics mode? Or vice versa?
Is heat a factor? If so, Apple should be able to tweak the cooling thresholds with a firmware update.
I'm thinking if you had a micrometer sized spiral grove going up the cylinder wall the oil would stay in the grove to act as a fluid bearing and seal. I think part of the problem is that pistons and cylinder walls expand and contract with temperature.
The Mac Pro line is assembled in the USA. The argument is moot, I'm more then happy to pay the premium for premium quality; if I were a mechanic I wouldn't hesitate to buy professional tools, and the same is true for the mac. The mere suggestion of building your own system is insane, professionals don't have time to tinker around with a piece of shit personal computer. It's not easy to assemble a production system from off the shelf commodity parts, and anyone suggesting as much has never done professional systems engineering and integration; assuming you have the knowledge, I'd think there would be revenue generating projects you could be working on instead.
This is stupid and pointless. Frankly you can keep your commie windows system, it's the mac operating system that I want anyways.
Hedging bets, I take half a multi-vitamin daily.
