it won't be for infotainment purposes, it will be for safety and traffic flow management.
You just need to report the anomalies, and perhaps the telemetry shortly before and afterwards. You don't need a constant stream.
Worldwide, thousands (probably millions) of people turn up missing every year - it's sad, but true.
If you turn up, are you really missing?
Posting as AC huh? Well, I am paid to do science. And I find this challenge pretty exciting. I might work it in my free time. I might pair up with a few other scientists who are interested in doing the same. Or if I really want to work this full time, I might write up a grant so I do get "paid". I don't really care about the $35K. And it's not pay. It's just incentive. Like a reward.
AOL = Internet is the hardest one. Want to hit my head against the wall when my mom says she has to go to AOL.com to get online.
World's biggest terrorism targets are probably Kabul and Bagdad. Don't think Jerusalem holds a candle to these places. And NYC and DC don't hold a candle to Jerusalem.
They should be required to read slashdot!! Ok, not TFA, but at definitely the summary and comments. Seriously though, that would go a long way.
Like ur use of the world "congresspeeps"
On the other hand, they may be more intelligent than we'd previously thought,
I take it you're not in the field of comparative cognition or animal cognition. Elephants have been known for some time to be very smart. Among the smartest animals after Dolphins and Chimps, respectively. They have complex language, tool usage, learning skills, and social relationships.
I don't think this study is meant to be a breakthrough understanding of Elephant abilities as much as proof that they possess a specific ability.
Why do they assume the people are within a kilometer? Drop a cell connection into the drone and you've got worldwide control.
Your typical drone will probably give you a 2-5 mile range bc of battery life.
think about it, this is possibly one of the most important things that we as a society can do...protect our selves from the large number of inevitable asteroid strikes which will wipe out millions of people instantly.
now it's being crowdsourced to the world, as it should be, and people bitch and moan. go save the world if you're the type and don't bitch about $35K not being enough to motivate you to save the world if you're a selfish jackass.
So for everyone else who has more than one person to support, which is probably at least half the people on this site, costs will be higher.
I was pricing it out recently, it would cost me around $7,000/month (mortgage payment) for a 1,500 sqft townhouse in Palo Alto.
Actually our school system is tuned to producing neither.
If we were producing manufacturing workers, you'd see way more vocational programs with companies deeply involved in apprenticing students so that by the time they are 16 they can go work in the factory or as a skilled laborer.
We should be producing BOTH. The economy would benefit from both.
Well, the use of the word "prediction" aside, it IS CORRELATED with performance in college more so than any other measure...so it's not a meaningless test, at least at the population level. I believe it's correlated at around 0.3 which is very high for social science...whereas HS GPA is more like 0.25.
Nonetheless, none of what I wrote above means that it is a good test, I'm sure there's room for improvement. Sounds like these are good changes coming.
People already retake the test too often...with your approach they'd be retaking it every day!
even to read and post rants on slashdot?!
actually, I check all my various accounts from my work machine. I assume my employer is capturing info but is not mining it.
