Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I'm going to make a guess here. No academic would leave that line right in the middle of their paper, and there is no way that the fire-breathing peer reviewers would let it slip. It was probably a comment left in one version of the document that was incorrectly transferred into the text of the final copy. When you have a million versions of closed-source MS Office files floating around, this shit happens. Another reason to use open formats.
Imagine if the opposite was true; if complete neglect and institutionalization was good for kids. Now that would be a real finding.

What are some of the best astronomy-specific news sites? I know that each individual agency has their own news sites, but would like to find a site that gathers everything in one place.
Pick a system that relates to you and your friends' nostalgic gaming eras: NES, Genesis, N64, etc. Track down a nice console for cheap on craigslist, and then just buy an Everdrive for it. The Everdrive is a flash cart that allow you to jack up an SD card with roms and play them on the real hardware. For the price of five to ten common games, you could instead buy an Everdrive and have every game ever made.
I personally avoid subjecting friends to Atari or emulated games.
I was very excited to see Smaug in HFR, and made a bit of a voyage to see it in a theater that was projecting 48FPS. I was completely blown away by how shitty it looked. Smaug the dragon was very good looking, as was a lot of the scenery and landscape. The sets and characters looked like a cheap theater production though. Everything screamed out that it was a prop or a backdrop.
Believe me, 48FPS is not the future. Or if it is, then there is a long way to go in setting it up and filming it properly.
This is exactly why the security-conscious always wipe their phones clean
It's a big fuss over the complete genocide of native peoples, and further public denigration despite their protests.
We shouldn't tolerate the "Redskins" any more than we would tolerate the Washington Xs
X=African American racial slur; Jewish slur; Polish slur; Mexican slur; Italian slur; Obese American slur; etc
Any time that Indian subjects come up in popular venues, a racist fury is unleashed. You racists need to confess this to yourselves, and attempt to overcome your ignorance.
Do Indie bands and labels even need Youtube? It seems like the big loser would be Youtube itself, both through a loss of freely submitted content, and through the terrible backlash that this is going to cause.
Little by little, Youtube posters have been jumping ship as the deal has gotten progressively worse. In the end, what good is a media service with no content? Or even worse, with only low-quality and corporate content?
