I meant from the cognitive perspective, which is what these articles are typically focused towards. It's not that Neaderthals are creating cave art. They're just creating art...and like you said, this is the form of it that we see.
if they were creating cave art, then they were certainly creating other forms of art. nothing special about caves.
a good cop will want to wear a camera.
it's only shady cops that will protest.
scary thing is you would have been justified to shoot and kill him as he approached with his gun....as any well armed and well trained person would do...and u would have been fucked for it.
what concerns me more is that cops will end up with compromising videos, even of innocent people, and they will be exposed to leaks, hacks, or blackmail. there will be other unintended consequences....but the trade off may be worth it.
it's not a political issue, this is just a step towards more professional behavior.
while funneling billions of dollars a year to ruthless criminal warlords in South America?
...and biotech firms
Maybe not doubling every 18...but the general trend is there...
WiFi speeds are about 100x faster than 10 yrs ago.
Boot times are about 10-20x faster than 10 yrs ago.
Battery life is about 4-5x longer than 10 yrs ago
Meanwhile, prices are about 1/4 what they were 10 yrs ago.
I'll take that over speed increases.
Well, in their defense, ECC on the flash memory isn't exactly rocket science.
there was a time, back in the 90's (rapid progression of 286/386/486/Pentium) where you needed to upgrade your computer every 2-3 yrs or you couldn't even run the latest software...and i'm not talking hard core games...even simple stuff like word processing or the newest ver of windows.
seems like now you can get by with 5-6 yr cycles, esp with the introduction of an ssd and more ram.
people are forgetting that no one's going to be awake or likely aging during this flight. suspended animation will be required for a trip like this and likely possible in the not too distant future (100 yrs?).
so it doesn't really matter so much if it takes 13.3 yrs or 100 yrs.
the hardest part will be that people don't do well at funding and executing projects that last more than a life time. the organizations and countries and people that launch these missions will be long gone by the time the crew arrives. there's a high chance they won't even know the mission existed and will not have the (ancient) equipment to communicate with the crew.
yeah, but probably no humans there to crush. you'd imagine the local species would have evolved to deal with the pressure.
but they have smartphones too...its not the technology that sets us free.
new meaning to "your google profile will follow you around"...what's that buzzzzz overhead?
noticed i got a down vote. i wasn't being sarcastic or inflammatory.
ukraine gave up its nukes with american assurances that they would be safe.
if they are not safe and we're not getting involved, then give them some nukes back.
we don't really have to get involved in the conflict per se. we can just provide ukraine with a few dozen nukes.
