California has no feeder routes. Even in areas where a train seems to be available, by the time a passenger manages the connections at both ends and adds in the wait time for even the most on-schedule service, train is MUCH slower than driving. If someone is to spend an hour (or two) getting from their origin to downtown LA and another hour (or two) getting from downtown SF to their destination and pay for parking and car rental, the train has to beat a car by at least 4 hours to get used much.
The case in question, whose oral argument will be Tuesday, October 16, is Stephanie Lenz vs. Universal, a case that began back in 2007. Lenz shared a video on YouTube of her son dancing to "Let's Go Crazy" on a stereo in the background. After Universal took the video down, Lenz filed a suit with help of the EFF to hold Universal accountable for taking down her fair use. The court had already decided that content owners must consider fair use before sending copyright takedown notices."
Sample size, of course, is 1 statistics class where I apparently didn't learn much.
I hire embedded programmers. If they graduate from a university and can't apply basic algebra principles, that is a pretty good indicator that they cut and paste and memorize. I don't ask them puzzles, but I do ask them to take a real-world phenomenon and turn it into an equation. If, knowing its (constant) speed, starting time, and starting position, you can't express the position of a train as a function of time, you can't program either.
Some people call those "puzzles"
Young people (most of Google's employees) think they are indestructible.
I daresay that I am in better financial shape than 80% of Mr Schmidt's employees including those my age and I fully expect to keep innovating and being paid well for it until I am in my 60s and due to retire.
I cannot be certain that I will be OK financially at that point.
* Medicare may be a shadow if what it was
* The social security I paid into on the majority of my income for the last several decades (while the "investor class" paid on little of their income) may be gone
* The major corporations that committed to a pension may have shoveled the liability onto a disposable successor
* Medical insurance may become unattainable
* I could get disabled by the negligent act of a corporation with little or no compensation (Tort "reform") and get wiped out financially
It is time to realize that us 99%-ers are really in this together even if most of us are too busy working to join the protests.
I've used them for several years and they are very reliable.
It's a pain in the neck, so I only encrypt a tiny fraction of technically sensitive emails and only to a short list of correspondents working on the same project.
This appeals process was not based on the existence of the award but on the amount of it.
Perhaps in ruling against Corbett, the courts would "put the fear of god" in these can't-tell-the-difference-between-public-school-and-sunday-school teachers. If so, I could live with making the AP High School teachers guard their words a bit more carefully while they try to make their slacker students think.
Of the last 2 interns I hired, one happens to be a product of the US education system and the other falls in the "Indian/Asian" category. I can give one a permanent position. The pay is the same regardless of which one I choose. If I choose the non-citizen, I am in for a whole pile of extra paperwork to get his labor certification done.
There is no comparison on the performance level. (The hours are identical -- interns work exactly 40 hours per week) Even though I will wind up with a whole pile of paperwork, I am hiring the non-citizen. I'd rather have to do the paperwork than have to teach the kid who grew up here all of the things that his parents and teachers should have taught him over the years.
Face it. I need to hire people who know how to do stuff. In the last 20 years or so, we started to produce kids that don't know how to do anything. Personally, I think it was around the time that parents started to buy kids nice cars rather than helping them get a heap of junk out of the classifieds and lending them a set of tools.
There is a part of me that would rather hire my fellow Americans. Too bad I can very rarely find qualified ones. That pains me.
The court (outside the dissenting opinion) clearly made no distinction based on the amount of information stored on a smartphone and did not address the use of the phone to break in to systems outside of the phone itself. I hope, possibly in vain, that the latter would require a warrant. Read the ruling at http://sfgate.com/ZKUI
After reading the court's decision, which emphasized the absence of any activity by ROR after the injunction, they were probably unwise to edit the original posting by pre-pending updates about the progress of the case. Now, the plaintiff could argue, they took actual action (editing and re-posting) after the injunction.
They would have been wiser to move the original (intact) to another URL and redirect the original to the new statement with links to the original at its new URL, possibly even adding some JS to the new statement to help go get the original article.
The problem with this is that Apple was so innovative that they can infringe patents for ideas that other large companies came up with years later.
