Hedging bets, I take half a multi-vitamin daily.
I haven't gotten over being mad about them phasing out buggy whips yet!!
That's what she said.
Right because putting things like that to a popular vote in a republic is a really sane way to govern.
Actually that might be the way to go, a simple majority is all that's needed for any particular vote; this would engage citizens in government. While you can't circumvent the bill making process that is articulated in the constitution, you should be able add a public vote as a pre-bill step without an actual amendment to the constitution.
In essence, it would be a method of constituent polling, which legislators can use as the basis their actions. Assuming legislators are acting on behalf of the constituents I think this is a no brainer. What are we waiting for? The open source community is ideally suited to build a secure polling system.
Noble as in inert - it's not supposed to react to form a stable molecule.
Noble doesn't imply non-reactive, all of the noble elements can be ionized, with enough energy, just like any other element. What it means is they have a stable electron configuration. Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, and Radon all have there outermost electron orbital shells filled. This means they're not inclined to give, borrow, or take electrons from other elements, this is why there called noble.
The fact that argon hydride was found in space implies that krypton, xenon, and radon hydride can also be found in space.
My dog said she wants to incorporate a business, is it ok if she signs with her paw print on the articles of incorporation?
My dog, cat, whatever should be a legal person, that way when it runs off or attacks something I can't be held liable. You'll have to arrest them and arraign them in court just like any other person, furthermore they'll have a right to court provided legal representation. Hopefully the judge will grant them pre-trial release, otherwise they might show bias against four footed persons. However, I'm fairly certain the judge would end up ruling they are incompetent to stand trial. Furthermore, they'll need protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act, since they can't compete with the abilities of humans. Thankfully they'll be eligible for social security supplemental income, medicaid, and medicare. Do they need a bank account, or can I be a trusty for them? What about taxes if they earn a living?
What's a reasonable wage to pay a coonhound for treeing a coon? Are they salaried or hourly?
Giving people a stipend like Sweden is one of the better ideas I've heard in a long time, instead of working to further a few individuals private interests, people would now have the time to dedicate to their own interests, which would be much more diverse and generally non-profit motivated. Myself, for instance, would use my time to further medical research in compounds that can't be patented.
Socialism isn't the answer, but at the same time capitalism isn't ether. We control the world at this point in our evolution, cooperation is critical now, and there is no other way forward.
Isn't an affordable 3D metal printer simply a welder attached to an x, y, z axis table? With a welder you can control the bead size by simply adjusting the feed rate and current. What is the issue here? Just get a mig welder, disassemble and attach it to a robot, then enclose the whole thing in a box filled with inert gas.
Actually private prosecution is allowed, it's not common because criminal cases that public attorneys decline to prosecute are often not winnable or otherwise worthwhile to pursue. Often there is typically no incentive for a private attorney to prosecute someone. Lastly, they would need to show cause to the judge for why they should be allowed to prosecute someone, and presuming there was enough cause, the public attorney would interlope or take the case back.
It's happened in the past, but is very rare today since nearly every jurisdiction elects an officer of the court to handle this. i.e. the state's attorney.
We had food patches, people stopped eating, among other things, so they banned them.
It is a topsy-turvy world where the people in charge are often the least qualified of anyone there.
I see you're just joining us... welcome to the real world.
Wait, the public is paying for the research, therefor it is public domain... so what rights are being violated here? Elsevier, nor the researcher, have any rights to the work products that are funded by the public.
I think the larger artist will actually become the "labels" for smaller artists. It's a natural model, wherein the larger names open their fan base up to smaller artists in exchange for consideration. Opening acts would be signed under the main act, and the main act would take part of cut of the sales of the other acts. Eventually, if the smaller act become popular, they can split off, and the process repeats... it's essentially a talent incubator.
I'm giving $10/month to MOG, I find it hard to believe they aren't making a profit, in fact Dr. Dre, the new owner of MOG, just, literately yesterday, sent out an email saying they were lunching a second music service, based on MOG, under the "Beats" label. I think someone is full of shit, or pushing an agenda.
Not if it's impinging on my freedoms, we settled this back in 1945. To hell with your new Nazi ideologies!
Yeah they do, they're called ICBMs...
I'm more worried about the damaging effects this would have to the cars electronics and the people inside it. God help the police if it's later found to cause cancer. I would think an energy weapon, which is what this is, would need the FDA to sign off that the device is safe to use on humans. Furthermore, it's illegal to use the RF spectrum without a permit from the FCC, so presumably they're using the 2.4 GHz ISM band, if this is true, then it's not safe to point at any life form.
