Medicine. Patents give large US pharmaceutical companies monopolies on treatments and the embargo prevents them from being sold to Cuba.
the situation is analogous to the poor dudes in gitmo. Everybody knows they're not terrorists, yet because they were seized illegally there's no way for the justice system to process them.
I'm puzzled by this one. Surely all the justice system needs to do is say "The U.S. Constitution binds the actions of the U.S. government even outside U.S. territory" and then admit a writ of habeas corpus?
I'm not quite sure whether your question is "Why allow reference comparisons?" or "Why use == for reference comparisons?" If it's the former: if you look at equals(Object o) implementations, a lot of them begin with if (this == o) return true; It can be a major performance boost in some situations.
International Social Outcasts.
Or get bitten by. The hypothesised reservoir is fruit bats, but other primates can be infected by filoviruses, and pigs have also been found to carry them asymptomatically. Source: the WHO fact sheet on Ebola virus disease.
The compiler doesn't always know how big that free space is, because there's no type or size associated with it. It's possible in some cases to do bounds-checking, but not in many others. It's a fundamental difficulty with the language, and it's impossible for the compiler to check all those bounds without help from the language or the programmer.
That's not quite true: the compiler could arrange to pass around more than just the raw pointer (or in extremis could maintain a duplicate of the malloc table and work out the bounds given the pointer), but the performance hit would be considerably more than for direct checking.
Only two? I think that grammatically any of the three nouns could be the one that's growing on trees. The 13-year-old growing on trees is even more semantically problematic than the AIDS patients.
I admit not having read the clickbait (this is
And something positive about radiation is
An alpha particle?
Well, if we use the same kind of accounting principles that were used to try to extradite Gary McKinnon, this is an article about an intelligence agency causing potentially billions of pounds/dollars/euros of damage to computers, 99%+ of which were not "legitimate targets" for a black bag job. It may not be a surprise, but it's still rather embarrassing.
$42k would be low for an entry-level video game developer in a low cost of living area even as just a salary.
You're thinking in US terms. It's pretty good in the UK (25k GBP, which is the top end of what the main UK graduate careers site thinks an entry-level game programmer might get).
There have been cases (at least two reported this year) of people burning down houses when using this approach, so a modicum of caution is indicated.
Also, real computer scientists know who the fucking founding father of the discipline is.
I used to think I was a computer scientist, but now I'm not sure. Euclid? Diophantus? Babbage? Lovelace (albeit she'd be a founding mother)? Church? Goedel?
Austria is metric, so it's only 60mph.
