Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
This is Jordan we're talking about. A country whose Beduin rulers have as much of an interest in keeping Palestinians down as Israel if not more so. They probably cleared the plans with Israel beforehand.
Jordan is a thin strip of arable land close to the Jordan river, and a whole lot of useless desert. They can just drag the radioactive pieces out to the desert and forget about them.

IBM recently bought SoftLayer, and is now offering a cloud with a bunch of additional enterprise services at https://console.ng.bluemix.net... .
Required disclaimer: While I am an IBM employee, my opinions are my own and do not represent the IBM corporation. In fact, being a publicly traded corporation, I don't think IBM can have opinions other than "it is good to fulfill one's fiduciary duties".
No, but the 14th amendment did free slaves, and it was passed mostly by Republicans.
Good point. It is probably easier for people who are culturally Indian to manage workers in India from the US.
If you offshore a position, it is in India (for example) and you don't need an H1-B visa.
I got my M.Ed. there. The main advantage of WGU is that it isn't class based but competency based. You do assignments (and tests) to prove your knowledge. They don't really provide much in the way of materials, but if you already know it and just need the diploma you can advance very quickly. It is ~$3000 for an all-you-can-study semester.
I don't know specifically about the 401(k), but frankly I don't care either. I don't put money in it - all the retail investments that are available will depreciate when as the baby boomers attempt to retire and realize the demographics don't support it.
Note: My opinion, obviously not IBM's.
This is pretty much IBM's policy. We're allowed to post about IBM, provided what we post is:
1. Non confidential (I can't tell you about the time machine we're building in the basement in Austin)
2. Not damaging (I am not allowed to be defamatory, for example - although I will say all of HP's employees who are black with yellow polka dots are habitual liars)
3. Clearly stated to be the opinion of a specific IBM employee, rather than the IBM corporation
It would be silly not to let IBM employees, for example, post about mainframes. A lot of the world's mainframe expertise is at IBM.
Disclaimer: I am an IBM employee, but these are my own opinions. They do not reflect the opinions of the IBM corporation in any way, shape, or form. Considering that IBM is not a natural person, I'm not sure if it even has opinions, beyond "money coming in good, money going out bad".
Probably he wants the federal government to buy that land
It seems like a default position for state and municipal politicians to primarily look at how the federal government can help them. If anybody should pay people to come to Detroit, shouldn't it be Detroit or Michigan?
The visa issue has to be federal, of course.
