All of mine are Pickett. Note: Many of the modern tests and the EIT exam require a specific calculator model.
The Federal Law also allows state attorneys general to file suit on behalf of tax papyers in credit reporting cases. A local lawn care service accidentally submitted an already paid bill of mine to a collections agency. The Alabama Attorney General's Office was not amused and forced them to write a letter explaining themselves to me and then suggested that I sue the company which by then had seen the error in their ways.
There a re a lot of 501c3 organizations including universities that do a lot of work for profit.
langelgjm writes "In a closely-watched case, the U.S. Supreme Court today vindicated the first-sale doctrine, declaring that it "applies to copies of a copyrighted work lawfully made abroad." The case involved a Thai graduate student in the U.S. who sold cheap foreign versions of textbooks on eBay without the publisher's permission. The 6-3 decision has important implications for goods sold online and in discount stores. Justice Stephen Breyer said in his opinion (PDF) that the publisher lost any ability to control what happens to its books after their first sale abroad."
sciencehabit writes "The National Science Foundation (NSF) is investigating nearly 100 cases of suspected plagiarism drawn from a single year's worth of proposals funded by the agency. The cases grow out of an internal examination by NSF's Office of Inspector General (IG) of every proposal that NSF funded in fiscal year 2011. James Kroll, head of administrative investigations within the IG's office, tells ScienceInsider that applying plagiarism software to NSF's entire portfolio of some 8000 awards made that year resulted in a 'hit rate' of 1% to 1.5%. 'My group is now swamped,' he says about his staff of six investigators."
In a Venture Capital funded startup, the VC puts up the original money. Taking the company public swaps the capital provided by the VC for capital provided by the public in the IPO. Publicly traded stock does little once the company is started unless new shares are issued after the company goes public.
AFAIK in some places in the U.S. there are laws that a corporation must send a corporate officer to answer a small claims case. This can be very painful for a large company.
Half inch mild steel might stop lead. Even
.308 AP will go straight through without even slowing down. I have a whole box of such plates in my shop.
Wake me when it meets MILSTD 810-G.
I know exactly what you mean, metlin. I've been doing business case analysis for a startup I'm developing which will produce a tangible product with a high profit margin. A single machine in the production process has 6 zeroes in the price tag and the amount of money needed by the company over 5 years has seven zeroes. While I was able to fund the basic research with my own checkbook, scaling it into a profitable product with that funding source is impossible.
That failure pattern is called the bathtub curve or Weibull distribution.
Honestly, some of the most interesting and intelligent people I have ever met were art historians. On the other hand, it isn't a degree you get as professional training to do something lucrative.
The XFS guys are right. I've lost data multiple times on XFS due to their disk caches being enabled in Suse 11.4. My disks are ST9750420AS using bios raid. I finally had to disable disk write caches on bootup. These losses were not even due to power failure: these losses were incurred during graceful system shutdown.
A good use for stupidfilter http://stupidfilter.org/ perhaps?
Untar in this context simplym means heating up the sundial with a giant magnifying glass and hoping the tar runs off . .
