If they are publicly traded and their principal business is not risk, then they are required to be by law.
I'm fairly certain there is no such law. What publicly-traded businesses are required to do is to do what they say they'll do in their articles of incorporation and their prospectus. For most, these documents state that their focus is to generate a responsible return on investment (language varies, but that's what it boils down to). However, it is perfectly acceptable for them to include other goals, and even to prioritize those goals over making money.
Were SpaceX to go public, they could specify that their primary goal is to get to Mars, for example, rather than to make money. That would probably lower their valuation, but there would be nothing at all illegal about it.
Well, I'm an engineer and I work with engineers all day. I find the majority to be fairly liberal and not very religious.
Did you obtain a similar sample of people with other degrees to compare against?
The real question is not are engineers 9 times more likely to be terrorists. The real question is are they 9 times more likely to hold extremist beliefs, or just 9 times more likely to act on them because to engineers the point is to solve problems.
I suspect it's some of both. It seems to me that engineers do tend to be more passionate about their interests (whatever those may be) than the average person. And they think in terms of how to solve problems.
So I'm confused about this idea that engineers are more likely to be religious than the public at large. That just doesn't make sense to me.
The summary didn't say that. It said engineers are more likely to be religious than people with social science degrees.
Does your smart TV have a microphone or camera? Some do, some don't? Who is the manufacturer if you don't mind me asking? Samsung seems to be the most gregarious about seizing "rights" in their TOS.
No camera or microphone. It's made by Sharp.
What the hell? Why? Seems like the articles he posts are interesting and on topic for a nerdy site.
Maybe you should go away.

Any sources for this? According to Wikipedia, he still is the current CEO of Microsoft.
And in the meantime it is sending bog-knows-what to who-knows-what. I think I'll pass....
I didn't pass, I checked. I had my router log the packets from my TV for a couple of weeks, then fired up Wireshark to look at who it was talking to and what it was sending. Result? On a daily basis it sends a tiny request to the manufacturer, which I suspect is checking for firmware updates. Other than that, it appears to connect to Netflix when I watch Netflix, my DLNA server when I watch stuff from it, YouTube when I watch that, etc. That's it.
It also occurs to me... if you're worried about a information being sent who knows where, why are you not worried about your Roku, etc.? How do you know what it's sending? Why is a Smart TV riskier than any of the other network-connected media-playing devices you might hook to it?
Opposing life is evil- which is what your addiction to drugs does directly. As does abortion, divorce, contraception, and homosexuality. That's what I mean by real morality is built into your DNA.
There is an objective morality that is not a human invention- but is in fact quite human. It is written in your DNA.
But making a Jew eat pigs is most certainly an imposition, which is what the sexual revolutionists have been attempting to do for 40 years.
It is what has been happening in Oregon. Having said that, they then turned around and raised taxes, which kills more jobs than minimum wage ever could.
It is your destiny. - Darth Vader
