A worse punishment would be for them to have to live the rest of their lives in Tijuana. I'd say they got off easy.
Use of the internet is NOT a basic human right, no matter how much Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg want us to think it is. It's a privilege and should be revoked as such.
Math is irrelevant. You'll never use advanced math in your career. What you are learning is advanced problem solving, which is invaluable.
It's a telling sign of the state of the human species when 3D printers are finally invented and the first thing we make with them is weapons and armor. Anthropologists are probably having a field day, or certainly will 100 years from now.
Cigar Aficionado. It's like if "GQ" was mature and sophisticated. I like that the articles are actually the size of articles and require an adult attention span to read. They aren't tiny blurbs and blog posts which most magazines have resorted to (as the web has decreased everyone's attention span).
Have you seen me? Let's just say, that's not going to be a problem.
The network is down right now, apparently.
Keep in mind that Nickelback are the most popular and most successful rock band. If we let natural selection use "most popular" as its selection criteria, we'll end up with a bunch of Nickelbacks, Michael Bays, and Stephenie Meyers.
Fortunately she is very well qualified. It actually sets a nice precedent. Video game playing, as a hobby, should not reflect poorly on someones character or ability to hold a position of public office. From now on everyone will remember how this tactic backfired. Thank you Ms.Lachowicz.
We will have an entire generation where all of their knowledge of the military comes from playing video games, and so their opinion of war, fighting, etc. is going to reflect that.
The good news is that today you lost about $8 billion. The better news is that you still have about $12 billion.
Calling Higgs boson "The God Particle" is probably the greatest marketing decision in the history of science.
I recently had a chance to play with a Playbook. It's a great piece of hardware. It's a great machine for $169. If somebody could get Android 4 running on it, these things technically should outperform anything else in it's price class.
Sure, men/boys can become addicted to porn, and/or video games, and yes it's a problem that can ruin their lives. However it's no different than alcohol or drug addiction. Both types can hinder your social development making you less desirable to the opposite sex, less likely to procreate, etc. The thing is that porn/video games/beer/marijuana all are perfectly healthy in small doses. It's only when it becomes an addiction is there a problem, and there is no reason to think that a porn/video game addiction is any worse for the future of the human race than alcohol/drug addition. So, let's not get too excited here.
A computer is a very specific electronic tool. Why does it require its own department? Universities don't have a "Automobile Science" dept. They don't have a 'Radio Science" dept. They don't have a "Television Science" dept. They don't have a "Pharmaceutical Science" dept. If you want to enter those fields, you study mechanical, or electrical, or chemical engineering, etc. Isn't a good Computer Science degree an engineering degree consisting of mathematics and electrical engineering and some software engineering principles thrown in? I'm not sure Computer Science needs it's own department. A computer science department is really a relic of an older time when people thought computers were made of pixie dust and performed magic. In reality it's just math and electrical engineering.
