Yes, it takes a brand new invention called a pickpocket. Or a weapon. True, that happens with cash too- but it happens to a fraction of what you own, because the rest is in a bank. With the wallet on a USB stick, its your life savings.
At the big companies maybe. Although the better big companies are smarter than that. At the startups not at all- generally because there is no HR department and the engineers/former engineers are hiring directly. Working at them, the only time I've seen someone hired for a particular skill instead of problem solving ability and intelligence is when we had a short, hard deadline and needed a subject matter expert for just a month or two.
The ironic thin is if you actually talked to the people who wrote those maps (who are generally pretty good programmers) they'd be on your side of the argument. The STL was written to be good enough and to be as generic as possible. There's a ton of speed optimizations that can be done if you're willing to make a few assumptions or a few different tradeoffs. Or just willing to simplify the STL API and drop parts most people don't need like allocators.
You don't think discrete math is CS? I don't think you know what those two things are.
Other way around. If you learn the new hot skills, you can get a low level job where you'll struggle and work poorly because you don't really know what you're doing. Then when the buzzwords change, you'll be unhirable. If you learn the theory and fundamentals, you'll write better code more quickly and be able to easily pick up new technologies as they come along. Theory always trumps "real world" skills.
Unless she gave it away elsewhere, her family owns all of her former property. It doesn't matter if she explicitly gave it to them or not, so long as she didn't explicitly give it elsewhere.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. Already on sale, 12 inch tablet with 2600x1500? resolution. Not sure on the exact number for the other dimension, but its available now.
Because the population is growing. So if production is constant, we all get less without it.
Lack of food, oxygen, and liquid water. Maybe it will be possible someday, but not now. This fatwa was discussing doing it now, possibly as part of the one way mission to mars that was discussed, which was a complete suicide mission.
Except that I'm going to have some money in a checking account anyway, in case of emergency (not to mention every investment strategy should include cash). The minimum is under the amount I'd have for emergency. So no, it really doesn't cost me anything.
Because most of us don't have these fees. I have a 0 fee checking account at BoA that just requires me to keep a monthly minimum balance. That balance is a fraction of what I normally have in there, so it isn't an issue. In exchange I get access to my money via the web anywhere, and access to services like cashier's checks at thousands of places across America if I need it. Definitely a good deal for something I would have done anyway.
I could switch to a credit union, but it would have non-zero time cost, cost me money in ATM fees when traveling (I can always find a BoA atm), and make some things impossible while traveling. Not worth it.
BTW- if you are being stuck by fees and you aren't living paycheck to paycheck, the magic words "then I'd like to close my account" is great at making fees go away.
You've already failed, they don't have magnetic fields. All the oxygen in the world is useless for real habitation without a magnetic field. Not a place I would want to live, with cosmic rays flying through my brain all the time.
In American CIVIL courts, money is king, and often the side with the most money wins. In CRIMINAL court, it is a bit different. One side is always the government, the other is you. There are tons of protections in place.
Where it gets fucked up in the US is Federal criminal law. State criminal law is pretty straight forward, but your protections in Fed cases is greatly reduced. The vast majority of cases are State, not Fed.
Ask Ed Rosenthal, who was convicted of being this mass marijuana producer.....because he wasn't allowed to tell the jury that all the pot was grown only for medical dispensaries. After the case was over, the jury was PISSED OFF and said they would have acquitted. On appeal it was knocked down to "time served" but still. That is the Feds for you, they aren't interested in justice, just notches on their gun barrel.
