Maintainability is a measure used to determine how easy it is to change and adapt code to modify existing featuers, add new one and remove obsolete ones. Changing code is the task you have to do to change the feature set.

IBM and Microsoft both were regulated for their market dominance based on monopoly laws even though there were other companies selling similar products.
No only monopolies or market dominant instances. It is obvious that there are more than one grandma' with a blog. Also your grandma' is not a service provider, like Google with its search engine or Facebook with its social network site.
As Google and Facebook have monopolies similar to Telcos own networks it is logical to control these monopolies. However, coming from Deutsche Telekom is a little strange, as they always try to shake monopoly control in Germany.
British politicians become more - Well, what is the right word for it? - nuts and nuts in recent years. Their chieftain is Cameron, but there are other super strange and politic actors around, like Farage. Also Tony Blair the previous chieftain was not much different. There are a lot of funny stories about him and his wife about not so scientific methods. However, they are only there to play politics while Murdoch decides what public opinion is and the City decides what real politics have to look like.
Maybe, they will sink themselves and vote for Brexit. We will see.
Who would have thought that? Or to say it with Louis de Funés (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GioEH34fhxE)
C: They do not trust you anymore.
C: They think you are spying on them.
C: They will not buy any stuff from you anymore.
However, you are lucky the Europeans will either by your shit or the Chinese one.
Medical science has no clue how allergies are acquired. They know it is a failure happening in the immune system. However it is unclear why. Some assume that it happens when an allergen looks similar to a previously llearned molecule from a virus or bacteria. Others assume exposure . The article assume lack of exposure. All three are hypotheses but we do not have a conclusive model for the issue. Nor do we know how to unlearn things.
Correct. Fix the problem not the symptom. But big oil and big coal will never do that. Furthermore, conservatives think that they are the only one who know what is right. And if they think its right it must be right.
Great idea. First, we foster the greenhouse effect with aerosols. Second, we shield the atmosphere with more aerosols. Instead of breaking something and try to fix it by breaking another thing. It would be more wise to stop messing around. However, that would not be in the interest of the fossil fuel industry. And it is against the idea that a conservative can never do wrong.
Look at Norway if you want to see a functioning system. It is not a technological problem it is a political, sociological, and phsychological problem. Have a look and read carefully this comment on the Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/com...
In every poster, paper and talk we give the affiliation is specified which pays us. Furthermore, if the project is financed by a research fund, private company, the government or the EU, we must add a funded by clause to the publication. If the research project has a website, the funding is mentioned there too.
And that is what exactly? I do not need Uber. I could use MyTaxi or even talk to someone over the phone and call for a Taxi. However, in a decent city there is something called public transport. And when I can wait 10 minutes for a cab, I can also wait for a bus or local train to bring me home for a fraction of the price. Owning a zone card. That trip would not cost me any extra. Actually every time I use public transport it is beocming cheaper.
Money is always a loan of someone. Presently, a lot came from the central banks. If they rise the price for money or reduce the size of lended money it will go bust. Money is not a real thing. It has no fixed value. Same applies to gold or any other thing you use to describe wealth. However, as long as the intrest rates are higher in the US. A lot of European money is transferred to the US, lowering the Euro which makes products from there cheaper. This allows the Germans to sell more stuff in the US increasing a cashflow back to the EU. With the upcoming TTIP and TISA agreements this will even improve for money owners. However, housprices, house rentals, water supply etc. will become more expensive for the average people.
It is full of flawed logic. It was either a template based generator who does not check on the internal logic of the generated output. Or it was a clueless human which is the wetware implementation of the same thing. Even if it were true that their is a high demand in skilled coders, then this would lead to automation, but this would result in just another level of abstraction and would require even more skilled workers. Beside that, I just had a conversation yesterday, that they were unable to port an old Access database to a real database in a two years project with eight developers. Now they are using code monkeys to handle the tables in Excel. If resources could be wasted like that then there is first a boost in professionalism required.
You are wrong. This is a typical misconception. A brain works quite differently based on some analogous pattern and with certain chemicals affecting the processing. We actually do not know how the brain really works and why it works that way. Therefore, you cannot conclude your brain model out of the observations. If you ever had a hunch, you should know that your brain is able to come up with ideas which you are not able to determine logically.
