Yes, just that! Those idiots have actually taken the attention away from the real issue here which is a potential for loss of privacy with devices like Google Glass! Now the problem has been re-defined to safety of those wearing Google Glass.
Is it gitish or gitsh?
I am surprised no one has said this so far. The earliest link for this is from 2007 - www.techdigest.tv/2007/06/hitachis_new_bu.html This product seem to be here - www.hitachi.com/design/field/solution/microscope/ It will become obviously illegal in many countries for companies to force your employees to wear this so I dont think what the above CNN article mentions is what this product will be advertised for at all. It is not a bad idea, I just think the scope of privacy abuse is huge. So, I think, one way this product could be used is by making it optional for people and making them aware of all the things it is recording. I mean, either have a turn off button or a way for you to leave it at your desk. I can see that this is a good way to measure which organizations within a company talk to which ones. It wont help in tele-conferences etc, it can add to that data though.
This person Karo Michaelian has been screaming on the comments of the linked article that this research is not new apparently.
Can anyone with more info on this tell me how this earlier paper is different - arxiv.org/abs/0907.0042
I forgot this one thing - try to develop a reading habit. Read a book or novel or anything for some extended period of time. Like more than 20-25 mins or something. That helped me as well. I try to do this before going to bed.
I have a similar issue with not being able to sleep and not being able to focus on the task at hand thus taking much longer to finish things and for me it boiled down to the following 1) Get your body clock in order. Sleep and eat at fixed times as much as possible. Also, rest plentifully throughout the day 2) Eat the correct kind of food like fruits etc. Eating fast food for me has caused havoc on my stomach thus leading to sleep issues. Also, I reduced my sugar/candy/soda intake a lot. 3) Exercise. This is right up there with eat and sleep. 4) I realized that I was not finishing tasks because on some level I was not really interested in doing them. This you need to just do some thinking on what your goals are and are you really interested in doing what you are doing etc. 5) I also realized that I wasn't doing fun things enough that I would then be able to do my mundane work items. So on a daily or maybe at least weekly basis, participate in a fun/hobby activity. It is very refreshing. I am planning to buy a PS4 or XBOX for this soon. 6) I find that blocking out external noises and stimuli while working helps me focus on things. This along with making a log of what I am doing (learning Emacs org mode for this) helps me remember things much better. I bought noise cancelling headphones and turn off most notifications that are not important to me during the day as much as possible. 7) Most importantly, I realized focus/concentration is not something you build in a day or week. It takes a lot of time. It is literally like developing a muscle. You need to feed it right and work hard on it to sharpen it. Remember, you need a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. There is a lot of interest recently in mindfulness you can take a look at that. Hope this helps.
Exactly the kind of answer I was looking for. I guess "alive" implies "being aware that reproduction is necessary to survive" at the most basic level?
So, I understand that what the article is trying to say in terms of Chemistry. Basically, these storms could provide both the raw materials and the energy required to create biotic molecules. My question though is at what point those molecules become alive? When do they start reproducing or even get the will/understanding the need to reproduce/split to survive? How does that transformation occur that takes this energy from lightning or whatever and converts it to life?
I suggest look at the job postings of Amazon, MS and others and see what areas they most desire. I am a CS/ECE grad and in Raleigh and almost once a month I have someone from MS or Amazon ping me about a position. I know for a fact both Amazon and MS love CS programmers, algorithms, distributed computing etc. If those or other similar buzzwords are present in your resume on linkedin or elsewhere, you will get an email soon.
I think everyone has a friend on FB who posts news items really fast. As soon as they happen. It is almost like some people feel compelled to be the first to ancounce news on Facebook. I think those few people may be responsible for most others getting their news on FB as well.
I am not completely in agreement with this study. I only read the Atlantic article, I did not read the study so maybe I missed something. From what I have observed, the younger teachers who were on tenure track in universities were always more focused on getting research grants because that is what helped them get tenure. The older ones were more likely to win best teacher awards. From my just my personal experience of 8 years in grad school I feel like it is just the enthusiasm that some younger teachers show that is infectious and makes you feel like the teacher is good. The older teachers are actually better at drilling down concepts however they were less excited about the material and somehow that transferred to the students as well. Students were more likely to feel bored in their classes. I was a TA and that was a frequent complaint about my advisor but I used to go throw his material and it was fantastic. That said there was one tenured professor who was an okay teacher but left the teacher survey on the last day of classes, on our desks, on the way out muttering "Write whatever you want, nothing can happen to me."
Wont you get charged for how much power you are sipping in? Is it free? It may be now, but it unlikely to remain that way. A more important question is how efficient is this? How much energy is given to the vehicle and how much reaches the car and what fraction of it is actually getting converted to motion?
I dont think somehow this is such a bad idea. I mean, they could have just deleted all those pages really ( I know this is a not a good enough excuse). If you use Tumblr, you know most pages are inter-linked. So it is easy to go from one to next. Did they stop that as well? Also, I had noticed that most Tumblr pages did not have any warning for adult content.
Right, but then if you keep writing code for future expansion, you are over designing. A lot of the times, it is really hard to predict what direction this project is going to take. You also end up with pieces of code that are being maintained for future really. You do bring out another interesting point. Code that looks simple to me may not look simple to others.
