I know you are just posting a quote, but for the record CT scanners are not calibrated with these radioactive pins, PET scanners are.
Amen. I regularly work with Intel and have early access to new cpus etc. These are targetted at HPC and are always named after a town. When it comes to building a rig for home it takes a while to decode the zoo names/codes of their procs. Even when I know what I'm looking for it takes a while. Average Joe doesn't have a chance.
So what does size actually mean for a proton. For macro scale objects we measure with some physical item that has an electrostatic interaction with the item being measured. Previously all the measurements were being made using an electron. The new measurement is using a muon. Seems like they just redefined what "size" means, i.e. muon based vs electron based. What am I missing?
The question mark in the title is clearly a Cavuto, a type of punctuation used to make an inflammatory statement without actually being inflammatory. For further clarification, I would like to turn to Jon Stewart.
Which window has focus? Hint: It's not the one you think.
I love it when apple violates their own UI rules.
To wit, folks, the license plate on the car belongs to the government. They're not tracking YOU, they're tracking their property.
Any crook truly determined to elude the police would just peel the layers of contact paper off of their car, each time they were spotted.
Are you sure? Here are the vision requirements for a third-class medical certificate (the one you need for non-commercial operations):
67.303 Eye. Eye standards for a thirdclass airman medical certificate are: (a) Distant visual acuity of 20/40 or better in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If corrective lenses (spectacles or contact lenses) are necessary for 20/40 vision, the person may be eligible only on the condition that corrective lenses are worn while exercising the privileges of an airman certificate. (b) Near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at 16 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. (c) Ability to perceive those colors necessary for the safe performance of airman duties. (d) No acute or chronic pathological condition of either eye or adnexa that interferes with the proper function of an eye, that may reasonably be expected to progress to that degree, or that may reasonably be expected to be aggravated by flying.
Unless your condition is covered by (d), you can get a medical certificate that restricts you to flying only while wearing corrective lenses. That's how mine reads, at least.
The requirements for first (airline captain) and second (other commercial operations) class medical certificates read about the same -- for those, you need to be able to get to 20/20 at distance, but you can use your contacts or glasses to do it. I forget if the uncorrected vision requirement was from the government or from airlines' own hiring guidelines, but it's definitely not a current requirement for civil aviation in the USA.
If that's the only thing between you and a medical certificate, give your friendly AME a call and get yourself cleared for takeoff.
