As a heterosexual male who doesn't like the outdoors, my brain would treat them the same.
Oil maybe but not electricity afaict. I say that because the electric utility here in the southern US basically begs their customers to cut down on energy usage.
They'll install monitoring to shut off AC for a few minutes during peak hours, automatically send free fluorescent bulbs every six months, include a newsletter with energy saving tips along with the bill, etc. Local mass media advertising too.
The effort was started a few years ago based on saving $150m to not build a new local power plant. So the cost benefit was higher for increasing energy usage awareness than it was to float a bond and deal with regulatory considerations for that shiny new station.
Btw, it's a major public company, PPL Corp., so I suspect it's not just a local initiative. The same situation probably applies in their other service areas too.
Great point, hopefully that division doesn't sink with the ship. Assuming they're still the best and OCZ didn't screw it up since they bought them.
I still have three PCPCs running 24/7 going on 4 years now. Worth every penny.
History is littered with unrelated proprietary software names.
And of course...
If a project is screwed up in the private sector, you generally won't hear about it in the press. The company simply takes a charge against earnings, buries it and moves on.
A government project like this can't avoid the scrutiny because it's taxpayer funded.
TL;DR: Your politically biased rant makes no sense.
It's because of Appalachia (one of the poorest regions the nation). Entitlements have historically been very important to the area, as well as the rest of the state outside of its two urban areas. While being part of the Bible belt has heavily influenced the conservative side (percentages for Bush Jr. and Romney were among the highest in the country).
Hence the "split" voting pattern you noted.
Not sure I understand your depiction argument. That's the crux of pretty much any book Christians have tried to ban from libraries, schools, etc. over the years. I.e. the basis of the outrage is simply depictions of rape, incest and other "non-christian" immoralities in the censored books, not necessarily advocation of those acts. The depiction itself is apparently enough to cause people to sin.
Yet, as the AC listed, there a bunch of examples right there in the Bible that should meet the criteria for Christian censorship. All within arm's reach of any kid attending Sunday School.
How do you logically escape from that being inconsistent?
Not sure I see the logic here, how exactly does your admonition work? You only supplied links to right-wing biased news sources (Newscorp, Carlson, Breitbart and Rev. Sun Myung Moon).
So it appears you are saying that only water carriers representing one political philosophy are valid, and that for some reason they are "unapproved".
Adobe is so big that I doubt anything happens to their PCI status. Except a higher discount rate in the future from their current processor(s). In aggregate, the cost of which is slightly less than the calculated cost of Adobe switching processors.
