No, that was not the general "you". It was the specific you. What are you going to do with this knowledge? You can not act on it in any useful way.
Of course. Check your closest piece of optical equipment and see if it brags about being aspherical. In that case, it probably contains resin lens elements.
Bluetooth is short range, and R/C uses audible signals on CB channel 14 or so.
Generally, these days RC uses the same 2.4 GHz band as Bluetooth, but not at Bluetooth energy levels or protocols. They tend to have a range of up to a few kilometers. Can probably easily be extended if needed.
But as others pointed out, these things are often quite autonomous and don't need a control signal anyway.
Well, do tell. How would it make you more secure to let everyone now about them?
If it were your web browser, you could upgrade it to the latest patched version.
But how do you upgrade your local power station?
No - security through obscurity does not work. You are better off fixing security holes and making it public, preferably with open source so that everyone can see that its fixed and look for other weaknesses.
That works for you chat program or web browser.
Doesn't quite work that way for your power grid infrastructure.
Thus far I have not found any software to read ebooks with these methods. Are there any open source applications, Nook or Kindle Fire applications, or otherwise to read ePub or Mobi or Kindle books via RSVP?"
I keep saying the same about education. The rich can afford to take an incorrect career path, or predict that their career path will be... MBA so they can be an executive of daddy's company. The poor have to speculate on what's going to be hot in 4-6 years, shell out cash, and hopefully get a job. The businesses profit from this: They get a flooded market and can pay $40k salaries for skilled laborers because there's as many of those as there are McDonalds workers.
If the public education system didn't make any effort to support people in getting vocational training, we'd be back to the days when programmers made $200k. Businesses would do better hiring an entrant for $40k and paying $160k/year for training... or hiring 3 entrants for $40k and paying $20k/year for their vocational education. They would want to raise these salaries to above cost: rather than $60k, they'd bump to $75k or thereabouts, so that other businesses would find it cheaper to pay $40k+$20k to train new entrants.
These entrants are the poor who can't afford college, who get government loans and then sit around with no jobs and crushing debt being poor. There are only so many rich kids to hire for menial labor as programmers, graphics artists, HTML technicians, Windows admins, and lower managers.
unless someone was simply not doing them
Well the scary part is that this option is actually plausible, given the level of incompetence shown elsewhere.
My gut flora is fine. I drink a lot of lassi. My blood pressure, when sedentary, is usually 123/81 or thereabouts, up to 125/83, with a heart rate of 90-95 resting. When active--bicycling 200-400 miles per month--my heart rate eventually drops as low as 70-73 resting. I've hit 68 once. I maintain a weight between 142 and 158 at a height of 69 inches. Food-born illness has minor effect for 3-5 hours--I once ate raw ground meat, two burgers worth, which had been developing a rather ripe aroma for about two weeks... it gave me stomach pain for 5 very long hours, unlike raw chicken which gives me a headache and terrible gas when I'm unlucky--and influenza has once put me near-comatose for two to three days, otherwise been a relatively nasty head cold (I never vaccinate for seasonal illness; I am, however, overdue for tetanus and need to get that).
I consider myself in marginally fair physical health. Mental health is not something I can internally judge well; however, I have a mild obsession with rational evaluation, including a minor obsession with numbers and an odd tendency to be a bit too precise when possible. When psychotic, I dissociate into a directed collective consciousness to stay relatively stable; afterwards I make firm note not to let the doctors prescribe shit like Prednizone and Methylphenedate anymore, as it turns out I'm highly susceptible to drug-induced psychosis and that's less than thrilling. My indiscretion with what I eat stems from repeatable lack of consequences and thus an analysis of low risk, although every time I've had poorly-cooked chicken it's been because I tried to cook it right and simply failed; beef and fish simply haven't caused me too much trouble.
Are you trying to deny that various races are physiologically different? The fact that we can identify an Asian man or a black man from skeletal structure doesn't strike you as odd at all? How about the well-known fact that negroes have better heat tolerance and denser muscle structure, providing for better strength without so much bulk? Hell, even the hair--caucasians and asians have straight linked proteins, but only caucasians carry lighter pigmentation; negro hair is denser, and the cuticle links unevenly, which causes the curls and frizzy structure. Modern society of course has decided that negroes are uncomfortable, and so tried to Europeanize them--to the point that a radio host was fired after a customer complained that she should be more "normal" and put stuff into her hair to make it straight instead of frizzy.
Physiological differences from regional selection pressure. Dietary differences from regional selection pressure. Genetic mixing, mutations, normal chance selection. Environmental impacts causing normal variations in development. These create permanent, inherent differences in each person on the planet; some are small, and some are quite striking. Some are common and even normalized to an ethnic group; others are random and only significant on an individual level.
It's not absurd if it's true. Peoples' dietary needs and tolerances are highly variable; I know people who are vegetarian because they can't eat meat, it actually makes them physically ill on the level of a medical emergency (I suspect a red meat allergy, but I am not a doctor). I don't have a dietary fiber requirement--my optimum level of fiber is strikingly close to zero, and some 4 grams of dietary fiber without a substantial amount of animal grease in a day causes severe constipation. I don't need to avoid plants; I just need to avoid salad.
It's absurd that you think that people on one side of the world have the same dietary requirements as people on the other side of the world; it's still absurd that you think people on one side of the street have the same dietary requirements as their neighbors. In some parts of India, people are largely vegetarians; some of them eat insects as well, which is meat. Neanderthal man required at least 5000 calories per day to sustain, and had an incredibly long digestive tract; caucasian, asian, and negro man are quite physiologically different, and within these groups there are hundreds of variances. Some caucasians--a group largely raised on dairy, i.e. Europeans--are lactose intolerant by some damnable magic.
Those fallafels and rice cakes and red bean paste dishes and sweet potatoes are all nutrient rich, even protein rich, but they don't manage to give enough of what I need in a way that I can absorb it. Bioavailability of choline from soy is exceedingly poor--lack of choline will stunt neural development and reduce the amount of brain activity you can sustain. B12 is extremely rare in plants, but common in meat. Amino acids are readily available in meat, but they're available in different amounts and in different protein chains in plants--chains that don't always break down as effectively as those in meat. Fat is hard to find--avocados have plenty of it, that's about it.
The point is that "all the pieces are there" in the same way that all the pieces of a house are in the house next to mine, which was just demolished after tearing them down. Bricks, lumber, and mortar are readily useful; however I would have to scrape mortar from the bricks from the old house--doable--and use chemical resins and reagents to process wood and mortar into useful material--I'm not equipped for that. And of course much of the material is damaged (burned wood, contaminants, etc.), so I can't access it in any useful way at all.
Your haughty idea that we can slop the same nutrient-rich gruel in front of anyone and expect them all to grow up equally as healthy with no deviant impacts from their diet is pure delusion. It doesn't match with science, it doesn't match with anecdote, it doesn't match with the world around you if you stand back and look for a minute. You may as well claim the world is flat while you're at it.
Yes, but did he drive his car into a steel pylon at 100mph for ethical reasons? Are you going to be ethical and do the same, to decrease the damaging human population?
If I went vegan, I'd die. Slowly. Like someone dying of AIDS and leprosy at the same time.
You're actually fundamentally wrong. Linux used to have a 4/4 split hack, but it's been 3/4 on x86 forever. 4/4 was added as an option, and hardly ever used--RedHat published a special kernel for it for a while.
-fPIE requires the use of 1 additional register in many contexts, and they're scarce on x86. The performance impact is real. That said, it only affects the main executable--it affects
