The iPhone 6 (4.7" screen) has a 1,810 mAh 3.7 V battery in it.
Assuming the man got a full charge from a completely dead battery...
Wh = mAh × V / 1000
1810 X 3.7 / 1000 = 6.697 Wh
6.697 Wh / 1000 =
Let's assume the transformer is only 70% efficient,
And now lets convert this power to cash money at San Diego rates...
Well that came out even lower than I anticipated! $0.10 seemed high, and I was thinking it was closer to a penny, but not such a small fraction of a penny.
So assuming my math is right (big assumption!), it cost the train operator a fraction (7/50) of a penny.
If anything I'd say the women I work with are given more slack and more respect than the male developers. I have never seen anyone jump on any of the female engineers here (or anywhere I've worked) for making a mistake. Yet I have seen that happen to male engineers quite a bit, where a colleague or manager forces them to admit to a technical transgression, which sucks because now that female engineer might not learn as much from her mistake. In my experience, male engineers avoid confrontation with women in the workplace, even when it would be constructive.
I agree with OP, most women just don't want to work on the technical side of software development, and the majority of women that I have seen come into software engineering as interns or associate devs have ended up in project maangement. Hell, most men don't want to be software engineers, but there is a minority of men and even smaller minority of women that just have the knack for it. Forcing women who aren't interested into the feild and will make poor engineers is not the answer. If anything that will cause the men to discount minority of talented women (and treat them even more differently than they do now) that deserve to be in the feild.
It was really degrading to have to go through so many hoops to save some $$ but when I look at my kids and think about what $1200 can buy them, I guess it was worth it.
Why would the NSA and CIA be spying on Congress? Is it someone's goal to set up the apparatus of a police state?
I'd guess they have also spied on Obama and they have dirt on him (like most of congress). Maybe it's where he was born, maybe it's somethign from his past in Illinois, or something from his time with ACORN. Who knows... It is a relatively simple thing for the NSA/CIA to leak information to the press and get a President impeached. I think this is the simplest explanation for the reversal of Obama's positon regarding the Patriot Act and wiretapping. The CIA has been known to use these types of tactics in the past to maintain power.
