Go ask Saddam Hussein about that.
1, They haven't started digging yet. Still in the gum flapping stage.
2. Even if they do dig it, Nicaragua, not China will have the controlling interest. Nicaragua will.
3. China does NOT have anything like a blue water navy. There is no chance they could project force into Central America.
Next time try to get a better percentage of your facts right.
NOT Sonicwall!!! Gawd it SUX.
The less your UI has in common with that clusterfuck the better.
Lots of countries have turned off the internet within their borders. You can't route around a national border.
This is a complete non-story.
LOL. Like Panama has any ability to withstand a US military adventure. Nor does China have any ability to project force into Panama.
And no, the US is not giving up control over the internet. Fundamentally the internet infrastructure is controlled by the political bodies governing the countries it resides in. The US does not, and never did have control of the internet outside of the US.
US activities re confiscating domain names has been laughably ineffective because it's limited to US controlled TLDs.
Huh? Health care insurance is a way of socializing the risk of getting sick. I am in favor of the idea. But because of the socialization, people have a duty to society to minimize their risk of getting sick.
Rejecting vaccination is behaving irresponsibly. It's no different from taking other actions that could get your insurance cancelled, such as consistently driving recklessly.
Simply make them criminally liable for any other people who catch measles from them or their children.
Also revoke their health care coverage. And eliminate excused exemptions from vaccinations except when approved by a panel of doctors.
16 acres is going to supply 454 families?
Not even close.
Likely off by a factor of 50-100 or so.
Well, presidential limos generally have to be built to withstand a pretty powerful explosion going off underneath the car. Think IED mines.
This would be kinda dicey given this is exactly the location of greatest vulnerability of the Tesla with all that battery + stored energy also located along the bottom of the car. Even a moderate explosion could set off a nasty fire forcing the Prez to abandon his protection.
No, I do not think this is a very good idea. Much better to base it on a conventional design.
Low sampling rate MP3s can be obviously and audibly pretty bad on a good pair of headphones. Once you get to higher sampling rates you are generally in pretty good shape.
The comment in the story about CDs is really ridiculous. A properly mastered CD is really about as good as you need even on a very high end music system in a purpose built room with carefully designed acoustics.
There is no need for a new format. The idea that LPs are better is hogwash. The only time LPs sound better is when they are mastered with more dynamic range than whatever you are comparing them to is.
Now if he were talking about fixing the mastering process that would be a different kettle of fish. What is done to popular music in mastering, especially with dynamic range compression should be a crime. It has destroyed the value of music produced during the last 30 years.
Neil Young is selling bullshit. This is a complete scam he's trying to pull off.
It's an artifact of the capital markets. The same thing happened in the late '50s with the 'Tronics Boom'
Going back 80 years earlier it was the railroads.
It's a side effect of the 'Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds".
Law is a crappy field. Most lawyers earn half of what a senior engineer does and spend most of their time in divorce court. Plus you come out of school loaded with debt.
You can make good money in Big Law. However few last more than 3-5 years in that area. The weed out rate is incredible.
It's like going into a career like acting. The few at the top are wealthy. The rest wait tables.
Is social security really the 'dole'? It's a program that you qualify for by working, and the amount you receive from it depends on the amount of employment tax paid into the program.
Yes the number of people on it depends on unemployment to a certain extent, but that's because high unemployment often leads to people taking benefits early. The amount of benefits granted by social security is actuarially neutral though - increasing the number of beneficiaries doesn't lead to increased payment.
Yes, in absolute terms we spend a lot more than anyone else.
However it's also interesting to look at military spending as a % of GDP. When you do that it looks very different.
China for example spends far more than we do.
