Baghdad Bob, is that you?
I notice the patent application is with US authorities instead of the Europe. Perhaps EU patent authorities saw right through the argument for originality like
My usual environment is XFCE with Xmonad in place of XFWM. For more on how to do that http://www.haskell.org/haskell....
I tried using other tiling WM's, Awesome, i3, but none work as well for me as Xmonad though Spectrwm was really close.
"The shortcomings of US public education is a joint effort of teachers, unions, government administrators, and politicians."
So what about the parents? Teachers aren't being given much to work with since people with 3 digit IQ's decided they don't want to reproduce anymore. They're getting blamed for failing to teach chimpanzees to do trigonometry.
But them's fereign skools. Here in amurika we gots BS.
I learned to weld, do electrical work, air conditioning and refrigeration repair, boiler operations, etc. through an apprenticeship. It's a good deal. You get paid to learn. There's a catch though. You've got to join a union. No knowledgeable journeyman is going to train you if you're someplace where seniority doesn't count.
These days I've moved on to being a licensed professional engineer. Working my way through college on union wages, I graduated without owing any student loans.
Imagine that your a high school or junior high school biology teacher. Several times a day you are in a classroom in a rural southern state with an audience of 20 to 30 students. You know that more than half of the students in your class have been told by their parents and their pastors, that when the subject of evolution comes up, they should just tune out. Many of you keep saying that there's no controversy and nothing to gain by teaching the controversy. Well, for this class room full of skeptical students there's a lot of controversy. I guarantee you won't break through to them by ignoring it.
The purpose of the bill and the reporting being done on it from GOPNews is to frame policy debate within the myth that what the EPA is doing isn't ALREADY TRANSPARENT. At least it's sufficiently transparent to those who understand the science. It will always be opaque to those who are ill-informed about science. I've been researching proposed regulations in drinking water. An enormous volume of scientific documentation regarding the studies and methods that are being used were freely available at http://epa.gov./ Schedules for periods of public comment and dissenting opinion documentation are posted there also. So how much more do they have to do to be transparent in the eyes of clueless people.
The post says "we're a community", but otherwise uses the words "we", "you", and "the audience" in a way that indicates the author doesn't really believe it. When he says Classic Slashdot will be available until "we're" confident
Yeah, I've been on Slashdot for awhile too. But I won't be back anymore when the classic site becomes unavailable. Since the community is the actual product here, let's just fork it and we'll all go somewhere else. Maybe we can't call it Slashdot, but who cares? Let's just start a new site for all the old Slashdot members with the classic look.
Yes I think they understood what they had agreed to when they moved in. But the circumstances under which they agreed to it should never have been allowed to occur. And they should evoke empathy among those who are still capable of such. Your comment reminds me of another I heard a short time ago.
"Are there no prisons?"
"Plenty of prisons..."
"And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?"
"Both very busy, sir..."
"Those who are badly off must go there."
"Many can't go there; and many would rather die."
"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."
It would be great if the residents actually owned the property. They are often renters. The landlord will be glad to sell his old dilapidated property at its new value, then boot the tenants out. Sometimes they boot the tenants out in advance.The tenants often have nowhere to go and nothing to gain from the transaction. I know an elderly woman who is fighting eviction and relocation because she's simply too old, tired and too sick with cancer to move. She will probably lose and the forced relocation will be the death of her.
Much of his 23 year long life. Still couldn't have been very long. I've spent more time taking a crap than he's been alive.
I had a similar experience with my sister (not very computer savvy). She had a laptop that she was very frustrated with. I turned it into a dual boot system with Xubuntu on the Linux side and whatever version of Windows she had on the other. I encouraged her to use the Linux side, which she has been, and since then she has much less trouble.
Whenever I'm reading through a story and realize that I'm being marketed to, it just makes me so angry. Whenever that happens I try to take the edge off it by relaxing with the smooth flavor of a Chesterfield cigarette. Mmm. Smooooooth.
