The Cayman Islands trialled using a different GM technique to eradicate the local mosquito population. They used skeeters whose offspring require tetracycline to live. The wild population dropped by 80%.
You can get day-old chicks thru the post office. Your friend's bees are listed at the top of that same page.
The ones the gov't will claim are going to happen due to the excess emissions from VW Diesels. That'll be one of their justifications for nailing VW to a cross.
Kinda like all those extra deaths from VW's over-spewing Diesel engines?
What incentive would someone have to make the effort and take the risk to hack these machines?
Don't you think X-ray machine maker A would love to show how horrible X-ray machines made by company B are? They could trigger a new Therac-25 scare by twiddling the firmware.
While I also hate tailgaters, as a European who spends many months each year in the U.S. I have to say average American driving habits sometimes make me pull my hair out. I know driving rules and habits are different, still, if most drivers would at least try to keep to the right, to at least try to drive fast enough to be close to the speed limit on highways (not forcing 65-goers to constantly change lanes), to signal lane changes (left and right, yes, both), and not to break randomly on the open road (i.e., even when there's nobody ahead for hundreds of yards), well then maybe I wouldn't curse so much while driving. Oh, and for f* sake, if you enter the freeway and don't plan to leave at the next exit then you might sometimes consider shifting left 1-2 lanes.
You know, it's interesting--I would say there are even huge changes in driving habits between different parts of the country. This is obviously all anecdotal, but my experiences in parts of the midwest have been that people are very good about staying out of the left lane and allowing people to pass them as necessary. OTOH, in North Carolina, people are very bad about that. There are big differences in tailgating, use of the horn, passing on the right, etc. It seems to b e a fairly "southern" driving trait (I've heard northeasterners comment about this) to swing widely in the opposite direction before turning.
I just wish people would freaking pay attention at stop lights and watch for the light to change to green. It's almost always this excruciating ballet of watching the cars ahead of me "Oh, the light changed? *2 seconds to process before starting to accelerate" followed by the car behind them seeming to only realize it's time to go after their own two second pause. I'm hoping for network aware (or just aware!) autonomous cars that can all start rolling at the same time after a light change.
Digital Radio Mondiale as well.
I think he meant "non-leaking to space RF" signals (i.e. fiber optic cables). In other words, communication power is not 'lost' to space, therefore detectable by aliens.
Are you real or a parody??
I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
