Men and women are interested in different things. The feminists are beginning to look both silly and desperate in their efforts to come up with social explanations while ignoring the obvious truth: male and female brains are different.
No really. Before you mod this flamebait, check the studies. It's 100% true. Statistically speaking (well, at least according to several large surveys), most women actually do prefer male authority in the work-place.
And there are thousands of nightmare tales about all female workplaces...
Of course such statistics and stories will forever be dismissed by social justice warriors... And there are many here on Slashdot.
Oh please. I say this is a massive publicity stunt. How many celebs leaked "sex tapes" back in the day, expressing outrage right up until the months of careful planning and PR were revealed.
Secondly, "sex crime"? Good lord. Women today want everything to be classified as a sex crime. Give me a break.
I especially liked the introduction / explanation by Yoda.
The problem isn't just "expense" as the summary pretends. It's that the energy output is less than the energy inputs.
Scaling the reactor is like the old joke about "losing money on every sale, but making up for it on volume."
Because I'm pretty sure that talking to one's significant other is equally distracting.
So if I download lots of copyrighted music and films, but never listen to them -- then I'm apparently okay right?
But help me out here. the water is still in the oceans of the Earth. So what causes the net gravitational change? The change in density from less-dense ice to more-dense water?
I would guess that results in a gravitational increase. Where is the net loss coming from?
"Big enviro"? You mean the total sum of all non-carbon based energy industries, technology companies and carbon credits markets?
Show me your math.
The issue here seems to be an alteration of the gut-flora caused by artificial sweeteners (assumably by reducing sugars in the gut).
But might not this problem be addressed with pro-biotics? Gut flora seems an easy enough issue to address, no?
The Internet bubble is already bursting, with mass layoffs all over the valley. On top of that, the "China growth" story is also cold and dead, with bad debts soaring across Asia.
This has the makings of a massive flop, but the news media is ecstatic about this IPO despite widespread reporting on both bubbles having burst already.
Short this piggy.
It's one thing to blame Amazon and Google for a price war. But DropBox's pricing scheme was always overpriced. (And the same goes for Evernote -- even though theirs is a slightly different offering). What should cost a couple bucks a month is priced multiples higher.
Besides, DropBox has entertained MULTIPLE exit opportunities and rejected them all.
If they disappear now, they will have only themselves to blame for not choosing any one of the multiple exits that were on the table.
The landscape changed rapidly around the early leaders. And yet, those leaders did not change their models rapidly to match the changing landscape. Knowing when to quit, and how best to exit are essential parts of management. While we may applaud unbounded grit and unshakeable tenacity -- those qualities in a CEO are more frequently disastrous than beneficial.
What's the percentage of white male computer-science and technical graduates?
To do anything but hire according to that percentage would be an act of sexism or racism.
The reality is that you can build a decent set top box for casual gaming for under $50.
Do that AND open it up to developers with an App Store and Nintendo will create a whole new category.
It wasn't the "uber geeks" that ruined this trilogy. Jackson built up an incredible amount of "cred" with LOTR. The speed and decisiveness with which he obliterated his cred with The Hobbit is rivaled only by George Lucas and the disaster of Episodes 1 & 2.
The Hobbit is a silly script, which was mutated into a slapstick adventure-comedy. The characters are 2 dimensional and the plot could only possibly interest a child.
Thank goodness we "uber geeks" have Game of Thrones to distract us while Jackson sh*ts out another Disney-esque turd for his corporate paymasters.
