Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I grew up right next to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My dad and the vast majority of my friends moms and dads worked there for a long time as physicists. Being around these people for 35 years has taught me something. They are morons.
Interesting and probably true but nothing more than an ad hominem attack with regard to this study.
Thank you for supporting my argument. Or is that not what you were trying to do?
Probably not a popular opinion here on Slashdot, but legally speaking I'm surprised Aereo won. Of course, IANAL and all that.
The guy lives so much more humbly that its hard to think if he is as crazy as western media shows him or is there more going on. The country is making progress in spite of all the sanctions. Not sure if its the Iranian media spin but the guy sits and eats simple foods on a mat on the floor, sleeps on the floor.
First of all, Ahmadinejad is not the real face of Iranian leadership. The ayatollahs make policy, not him.
Second, to the extent that he does influences Iran's behavior, what does Ahmadinejad's eating habits have to do with his policy goals? Is it OK that he wants to wipe Israel off the map and long as he gets lots of fiber in his diet?
What the hell has happened to patent laws (or corporate patent strategies?) that you can't even build a damn power connector without running afoul of some licensing issue? I agree with the parent: no patents on connectors! How does it "promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts" if nobody can independently build a device to connect to yours?
The "Photo" app only lets you see ones your Pictures folder (Library->Pictures). I've got games and apps that don't happen to use that as the default directory. As a result, I need to copy or move all my pics into this ONE place that is usable, or hunt them down in the explorer for desktop mode, then double click (causes a "flip" to metro mode) to view each one. This blows chunks and my compromise (for now) is to enable the small preview mode (lower right toggle).
Pictures is a library, not a folder. Libraries were introduced in Windows 7. A library lets you join multiple distinct folders, even across drives and network shares, into a single logical entity. For what you are trying to accomplish, you should add your game and app folders which contain pictures to your Pictures library. In Windows 7 you do this pulling up the properties for the Pictures library and using the "Include a folder..." button.
After you've done that, the Photo app should should all of your pictures.
In all societies, fertility rates have a very strong inverse proportional relationship to women's educational level. The fertility rate in Iran is crashing - which I wasn't aware of until reading Goldman. It has fallen below replacement level; the population is aging and will be heavy with old people and the cost of supporting them in the coming decades. Ahmadinejad has been exhorting families to have more children to no avail. The next logical step is to enforce a lesser level of education for women.
Bottom line: keep the women dumb and they'll have more babies. History prove this to be true.
