It will just protect the 'interests' of an American corporation. See the US 'interventions', the US has never invaded anyone; in Panama, Columbia, Honduras, Cuba, Honduras again, Panama again, Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. And that ignores invading Mexico in the 1840's to support Texans' 'property rights', aka slavery, and on others. Oh, and that list is just up to about 1915.
See my other post. 'Stop loss' orders were issued, which amounted to a draft.
It's not called a draft. It's called a 'stop loss' order. During the worst years of Iraq-Afghanistan people at the end of their original service requirements were not allowed to leave. It was mostly for critical specialties but a draft by any other name is still a draft.
How do you think Penn. has clung to one party rule for so many years?
How about a hexadecimal object ID?
That's how ALL insurance works.
And they don't seem to care how many people they kill in order to do it. See the 'Great Leap Forward' or break neck economic development in the present as examples.
A rookie mistake. Tools to trap this have been around for ages. And do not give the "but they were optimizing" excuse. The only thing a security module should be optimized for is security. Once again, a rookie mistake.
From the OP: First we dumb down the curriculum with "no child left untested"
Fixed that for you. That nightmare was a gold mine for testing companies.
I wish I had read this before posting. I think my post http://news.slashdot.org/comme... meshes well with your statement. If we want a working educational system that helps the American Economy a strictly "utilitarian" educational system is not the way to do it.
Most of what they do is a commodity; open source software, electronics from Asia, undergrad programmers, etc. (ok maybe I am a bit overboard about programmers). What makes them successful is a focus on design, fit and finish, usability, and re-arranging existing components in new and innovative ways; e.g. taking a cell phone, a UI, wireless, a UI and creating the smart phone. This is mostly creative and artistic. A focus on CS will not save American innovation. MS actually has some smart people, but the lack of focus, vision, quality, and imagination is what is killing them
More along the lines of "increase CEO bonuses". The only goal corporations really pursue.
Couple that with "eventually consistent" databases and you have a recipe for disaster.
The entire point of the wall is to change the climate by preventing moist gulf air and cold air from the north from mixing. The change to the rainfall regime would probably create an even larger desert than already exists in the area. If you do not believe me look at the current climate of northern China he cites. That is what will be created.
