Corporations rarely do things because they're "the right thing to do" - unless one defines "the right thing to do" as "whatever maximizes shareholder value". Corporations are not moral; people are moral. And corporations are not people, people.
There is some research that suggests that Ebola Zaire can transmit from monkeys to pigs without contact, and could possibly be transmitted from pigs to humans. One farm worker is believed to have contracted Ebola Reston (which is not lethal to humans) from an infected pig.
The term "believe" can be interpreted in different ways too. To "believe in a global free market economy" can mean:
- "to be of the opinion that a global free market economy exists", or
- "to be of the opinion that a global free market economy ought to exist, and/or would be a good thing".
Then you should start by proving the belief to be false, because (at least in this case) it is not obviously false. Maybe, if you believe that it is obviously false, then it says something about you...
So let's just all shoot ourselves in the head now. Or... maybe... we could expend some brain power figuring out how to live longer and, y'know, not die so soon.
Haven't you heard? Corporations can do emotions now. At least I assume so; since they can be religious, I assume they can at least do guilt, shame, and self-righteousness.
No one puts a gun to your head and makes you eat at Applebee's or Olive Garden. Get a real job, earn some real money, and eat at some real restaurants (of which the US has plenty).
Oh, c'mon. It's not like being stupid and needlessly litigious is a uniquely French thing.
French Guiana is not a colony of France. It is a departement d'outre-mer, with the same legal status and participation in French government as any of the continental departements. It is analogous to the relationship Hawaii has to the United States, with full statehood and participation in US government.
My first language in college was Pascal. It's not a bad choice IMO. In part, perhaps, because it is a (pretty much) *dead* language - sort of like Latin for programming languages. Which means you *can't* get stuck on it, you *have to* move on to other languages. One disadvantage is that it may not be rich enough to use to teach concepts found in more modern languages, like objects/classes (although there are OO extensions for Pascal), maps/dictionaries, etc.
OK, then, what should the teaching language be? What language would be better for teaching basic concepts and principles of programming, e.g. algorithms, data structures, control flow, events, etc.? Assembly language for MOS6502, perhaps?
TFA should have mentioned that Simons has given large amounts of money to Brookhaven National Labs to keep the RHIC running.
I wasn't referring to any side. But to answer your question... well, I'm not sure I can. Certainly it was understandable for the Iraqi military to fight back against the US invasion. But as for terrorists/insurgents... are they necessarily acting on behalf of or under the orders of their country? Are they legitimate war combatants? Hard to say. There is a government in Iraq, for whatever it's worth, and any attacks on an invading or occupying force should, it seems to me, occur at their behest.
But it doesn't address the 27 degree angle screen. Round is the only way to go.
I have QWERTYUIOP on my Android phone. It pops up when I need it and it goes away when I don't - which is most of the time. I, too, used to insist on smartphones with physical keyboards, but I have come to find that a virtual keyboard with Swype is just as good if not better.
