- Not everyone has access to the web at work to find out. Often, the first you hear about traffic congestion is via the radio in your car.
- Not everyone has flexible work hours
- Not everyone has many choices of route home
- People are lazy.
How long can this trend be maintained before major problems arise in the economy ?
before problems arise? Have you not been paying attention for the last two years?
Seems more practical to recharge bikes (either electric-assisted, or motorcycles), rather than cars.
- You can physically get a bike closer to the telephone box than you can a car.
- You can fill a bike battery an appreciable amount in an hour, given the system's power generation constraints.
- You can fit a bunch of charging bikes around a box with bike rack technology
- There's thousands of bike riders in that country already, unlike the car-heavy US
According to wikipedia (yeah, I know, I know), FORTRAN is "a general-purpose, procedural, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing.".
In summary, FORTRAN is for Formula Translation, I guess? F# is Functional, but with language support for OO or C-style programming.
I admit I know bugger all about Fortran, but I suspect it doesn't have the full functional programming support that, say, Haskell boasts. At any rate, even if it did, it's likely that the last 50 years have advanced the field of programming sufficiently to make a new language worthwhile. So if you're up for functional programming on the
Wow, that article really has a 'blame the victim' mentality, with the coda "and here's why".
The article even ends with the appeasement of "what can you change about the way you act to avoid being bullied"
Just like Battered Wife Syndrome, bullying is something that, ultimately, is the fault of the aggressor. Appeasement is not the solution.
And then when I read about the current state of the education system, I get just a bit worried...
Honestly, besides grocery store jobs, I have never seen other types of companies hiring these individuals.
ASD isn't a barrier to founding three startup companies or Dealing with other people in a business environment.
Although it can be hard to register your car...
Insurance industry practices such as denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions would be banned, and insurers would no longer be able to charge higher premiums on the basis of gender or medical history.
I'm not from the US, but isn't that the main bit of you guys' healthcare system that's most in need of fixing?
In my country, pre-existing conditions just mean that you can't claim anything for 12 months after joining. It doesn't affect premiums or anything, and no health insurance provider can reject your application.
So, I guess, welcome to the 20th century!
Laugh all you want. If my IT job weren't freaking awesome, I'd farm bean sprouts.
Eyeballing the numbers, I'd work 6 days a week, but make well over 100k per year.
Seriously. You can start with one bag of seed and a few plastic buckets and sell to local businesses (especially organic businesses and asian stores since they sell larger quantities) and scale up from there. Inventory isn't a huge problem since it only takes 72 hours to grow the sprouts, and you can buy the seed by the 25kg bag.
Obviously, I'm simplifying things, but honestly it's a business that's incredibly easy to get into, resistant to non-local competition due to the perishability of the sprouts, and if you can 'get it right', you can definitely market on quality
