The web front end and credit card transactions are in Bermuda, but the shipments are from a warehouse in the states? Is the seller obligated to collect state taxes.
No, but the customer will have fun time with US customs when the package arrives.
My personal favorite:
The first sci-fi novel I read was A Wrinkle in Time; the next was Dune. Why don't more people read these extraordinarily imaginative books?
They are waiting for the movie to come out
The treated mice still had metastases of pancreatic cancer.
Life unlike computers is analogue.
"Nontoxic radioactive Listeria is a highly effective therapy against metastatic pancreatic cancer"
So, we're saying that we wasted lots of tumor cells via something nontoxic?
Is that like saying nontoxic botox because we only let it get to the tissues we wanted paralyzed?
They use an attenuated strain, so it is not going to give you an infection. They can probably charge double - once for cancer treatment and a second time for your Listeria vaccination. From table 2 in the article it appears that the bacteria are cleared from the normal tissue within a week.
Another one for the "The Anarchist Cookbook?" I wasn't aware of O2F2..
The formula that better describes its properties is FOOF. You can read a very entertaining description of its synthesis and properties here. Comparing FOOF to the stuff from "The Anarchist Coockbook" is like comparing Saturn 5 rocket to a firecracker. Yes they both blow up, but FOOF can make water explode at subzero temperatures. Here is a quote from Stern, AG, The Chemical Properties of Dioxygen Difluoride, JACS 1963:
It caused explosions when added to ice at 130-140K.
BTW I strongly recommend reading Derek's "Things I Won't Work With" blog. It is a lot of fun.
Zotero doesn't allow you to do bulk downloads.
It does to an extent: Do a search or just open a journal at the table of contents page. Then click on the 'add to zotero' icon, which in this case will looks as a folder. You will be presented with a list, that you can download in bulk.
I used Endnote because of a few cool capabilities.
- You would copy/paste text-citation mix to a new document (from several previous papers/thesis of yours) and it would order the citation numbers (as in IEEE and numbered format) and produce a final reference list. - You could have multiple types of documents (Journal, Conference paper etc.) - The numbers were always in the order of usage, - The formats could be changed and the whole document would be updated immediately. - The database could be saved on a cloud storage (and be available on all PCs) - You could download Endnote files on IEEE, Elsevier (scopus, sciencedirect) and other websites.
How does Zotero fare in the features I mentioned? I used it a few years ago but it lacked integration with MS Word, so I just gave up on it.
It does all of the above, and then some.For starters its has an interface that makes sense, unlike Endnote's which is a random pile of features accrued over the years. Capturing sources takes just one click within your browser. The only exception from your list is that the journals don't provide citation style files (you refer to them as Endnote files) for zotero. However this doesn't matter. You can find pretty much any style you want at http://www.zotero.org/styles. I think they have the formatting files for several thousand journals and the list keeps growing. One very useful feature of Zotero is the ability to have multiple groups with which you can share different libraries online. It comes handy both for collaborative writing and for teaching. I switched from endnote couple of years ago, when Zotero wasn't nearly as mature as it is now and i haven't looked back.
The judge over-stepped in this case & is legislating from the bench.
No he did not. What he said was: “Our review of the statute’s plain language leads us to conclude that the primary evil sought to be avoided is the distraction the driver faces when using his or her hands to operate the phone,” and “because it is undisputed that the appellant used his wireless telephone while holding it in his hand as he drove his vehicle,”. So the person who got convicted was not merely using the phone as navigation aid, as the article would like you to believe. Instead he was holding in his hand, while driving. As the Judge rightfully points out this is prohibited by California law:
" The statute prohibits driving “while using a wireless telephone,”except when the phone is “specifically designed and configured to allow hands-free listening and talking, and is used in that manner while driving.” ( 23123, subd. (a), emphasis added). The term “using” is nowhere defined in the statute, but if the Legislature had intended to limit the application of the statute to “conversing” or“listening and talking,” as appellant maintains, it could have done so.".
So if you have your phone on a mount and use it as navigation aid, without operating it (as you should also do with regular GPS devices), it is perfectly fine according to California law and the current judgment has no bearing on such cases.
