I'm an Apple fan (well, 80%), and I would mod it up. It's important information. It's at +5 now, but I can't understand why anyone would want to mod it down, except for a malicious hacker.
Your view on this is quite absurd. No-one should get fired for occasionally "pissing off" a manager or trying an ambitious project. If you get fired over this, and find that acceptable, I suggest you look up the definition of Stockholm Syndrome.
You mean some bystander picked it up and made it public? Possible. The story itself doesn't tell.
Anyway, it seems the ministry offers to send it well after the exams, and he would have to pay for printing and shipping.
So he made this request, haha, but who informed all the numerous reporters, and to what end?
> If she doesn't understand the internet, that's a serious problem.
You're basically saying that every member of congress in the oversight committee should have a deep understanding of how internet works. Well, that's absurd, for two reasons.
1. They share tasks. Not everyone can overlook everything. And they surely will have staff for these matters, too. Otherwise there wouldn't be any oversight at all.
2. There is a lot more in this world to worry about than Internet.
> there are many very good reasons people are upset with her.
Possibly, but lack of knowledge on one of many possible topics shouldn't be one.
Sure. I only wanted to point out that Rust doesn't seem any worse than other languages in that particular respect.
BTW, I looked at Ruby and thought: what an awful mess. It's the kind of language that allows you to do things too cleverly. Redefining what a declaration means by overriding functions, was that really necessary?
I'm not too positive about Rust, but I admire the attempt.
Yes, but you'll need 5 to 10 years of Rust experience. In a lead role.
> the remaining ones will be much more obscure
That is by itself not an argument. The same obscure errors can be present in code written in another language. Rust does not seem to induce code with subtle bugs.
The comments in this thread are all made from a reasonable understanding of how the Internet works. Sen. Feinstein doesn't seem to share it. Ok, you can laugh about that once. But the contempt for her is beyond normal. It is at troll level. How much do her critics know about politics and running large public organizations? Next to nothing, I bet. And they have even less experience. In line with the season, let me say: think, before you throw the first stone
Seeing the world in a bad light, doesn't make you superior.
I also have a hard time believing a request like this makes it to the
Did these "many people" ever look at the offerings of Khan academy? That's not academic stuff. And Coursera lacks serious cohesion and supervision. Those are two necessary (but not sufficient) conditions.
But university is about more than learning some formula by heart or reading a book. You need to get an understanding of the context of the theories, the process of discovery, and be guided through the history and current practices. It's not for everyone, but it's certainly not something an online course can provide.
Who writes these free courses anyway?
And you live in Indiana? Because you just sound like my colleague from Terre Haute.
This repetition suppression (as it's called) is normal in BOLD responses (the thing fMRI measures). It happens for every stimulus. It also happens when someone reads a word for the second time, and guess what: when reading it for the second time, processing is faster and less error prone. This is called the priming effect. It's hypothesized that it actually shows an accumulation of neural activity. So a "precipitous drop" is nothing to worry about: it's a symptom of the underlying processes, and moreover: it's the wrong thing to look at when you're concerned with traffic safety.
