Every nation on earth has weather and climate scientists. WTF do we need NASA to study the weather?
First of all, weather is not climate.
Second, those scientists in other nations depend on the data collected by NASA, since no one else can do it as well.
Third, the idiot currently heading the committee that plans to eviscerate the NASA earth sciences program to the tune of $300 million per year sees no problem blowing hundreds of times as much money on Cold War fighter jets. One might ask,why do we need to spend $1.5 trillion dollars on F35 strike fighters that can't turn, can't climb, run hackable software, and explode when struck by lightning or running on warm fuel?
This is not about the money at all. They just don't want anyone looking into this, period.
There are sites that function without js in 2015?? Please, I do not use no script as it requires a crappy browser and UAC controls the hell out of me to allow. The ads are far less annoying.
Seems adblockers are the more realistic option
You don't actually think they read the resumes do you? That is waaay too much to ask HR. According to that slick salesman from Taleo HR is liberated and can focus on more important things like uh firing people and getting coffee.
You see you need the file in an ancient
The top 4 scores get interviews.
If the software doesn't work then cry about raising H1Be crises!!
It must be that as Taleo is perfect I tell you?!
Oh it won't with a txt file. The software without formatting will parse wrong section.
I rallied around many unemployed and refused to apply with anyone who uses Taleo. It is insulting to spend hours applying just so the software can reject me. A 15 minute process always gets stretched to over an hour. However, everyone uses it now so my resume is SEO to get the highest score so I can get the job over more qualified applicants
And what about that space stuff? Remember the space stuff?
Why yes, we just saw a story about space stuff:
NASA hopes to send the first round-trip, manned spaceflight to Mars by the 2030s. If the mission succeeds, astronauts could spend several years potentially being bombarded with cosmic rays- high-energy particles launched across space by supernovae and other galactic explosions. Now, a study in mice suggests these particles could alter the shape of neurons, impairing astronauts' memories and other cognitive abilities. In the prefrontal cortex, a brain region associated with executive function, a range of high-level cognitive tasks such as reasoning, short-term memory, and problem-solving, neurons had 30% to 40% fewer branches, called dendrites, which receive electrical input from other cells.
It's pretty clear that Republicans are seeking to get people into space so they can expand their voter base.
I'm really surprised that fast food and other low-skill, low-wage work hasn't been replaced by robots already. Companies that sell these products have already figured out exactly how hot the grille and deep-fry oil needs to be, how long the meat needs to be in each and when to flip or remove, and given the crap job that the no-skill worker does of stacking the condiments, a machine probably could apply a slice of lettuce, two slices of tomato, meat, and cheese between two slices of bread to make a hamburger before wrapping it in paper.
Fast food isn't a skill. It doesn't even come close to coffee shop barista, where the customer is already paying a luxury price for a human's touch when making a product that could come out of a machine just about as well. If it costs $200,000 per year to pay employees to work a fast food restaurant, and that cost can be reduced to $60,000 per year by the introduction of a half a million dollars of machinery that will last for a decade, these companies would be nuts to not replace workers with robots.
No thank you!
I'll just leave this here... DHL in practice.
We already know how the current companies perform. And its generally not great.
Meh. At my workplace we use monitors/etc when we ship stuff where handling matters. If handling goes out of spec, then we'll have some words with the courier, and have procurement bring up that nice exclusive agreement we made that sends millions per year in business their way.
There's a reason the laws built up the way they did. You want to fix them, you have my blessing.
Nah, I'll leave that to you.
That was my whole point. If you want the law to be right, go ahead and fix it. Everybody else is just going to ignore it. They don't care if the law is right or not, because it doesn't really matter if nobody enforces it.
It is just too painful to fix the law. Too many entrenched interests are going to block you when you try. People realize they don't actually have to play that game, and so they don't. We end up with a society where EVERYBODY breaks the law daily as a result.
I don't think it is a good thing, but until it is easier to fix, nobody is going to bother.
Sure, but if somebody did operate an airliner in this manner, I imagine many other components would be failing, creating numerous hazardous conditions.
Maintenance schedules on big things like airliners aren't just created arbitrarily. If the manual says to inspect the turbine blades every n hours then somebody probably did a study that shows that at x% of n hours you start to get measurable deterioration. If they could make the intervals longer they would - it would be a major selling point for the plane.
Sure, this software bug should be fixed, but in general if you're going to allow companies to ignore the manufacturer's guidelines, then you can't really hold the manufacturer responsible for failure.
You want to not be tantalized or enticed? Move to a country that requires women to cover themselves. Otherwise learn to control your base instincts, you animal. If she's not displaying her sexual characteristics then your being excited is definitely your problem, not anyone else's.
