If you are a government employee and you submit a paper, instead of assigning the copyright, you send them some sort of standard form informing them that since the work was done by the government, it is not copyrightable.
What is the quality of the password then?
The people going the post-doc route either hoped to become faculty at a University somewhere, or were foreign nationals who needed a green card, and the universities were the only ones willing to do the paperwork. Then again, sometimes the Universities would string the post-doc along and only put in a half-hearted effort on the green card.
Indirectly they do. Mainly because the publishers don't want to have 50 editions for all 50 states - they want one edition for the whole country( the costs of setting up a press run for a textbook are not insignificant). Texas is large enough that they can get the publishers to make the changes that Texas wants, and the rest of the states aren't sufficiently motivated or upset by this that they can prevent this from happening.
With the advent of electronic textbooks I start to wonder the extent to which this is true any more. When it is all electronic, they could theoretically add the Jesus on a T-Rex chapter for Texas, and everyone else gets the normal textbook.
Yes, but it is still cheaper than home delivery.
We are one of the digital subscribers. Usually in the morning I will pull the thing up on the tablet to see what is going on in the world..
They had an epic screwup many years ago. One month I paid the bill, and instead of deducting the amount on the check from the balance, they added it so the next bill showed a past-due amount that was exactly double what the previous bill had been. Calling their customer service was useless - you would wait in the queue for 45 minutes only to find out that their "computers were down" and there was nothing they could do. This went on for days. Eventually I thought I got it all taken care of, and then out of the blue 6 months later I started getting calls from a collection agency. I started sending some rather rude letters to the CEO after this - eventually they admitted the problem.
It was nearly 30 years ago, but to this day I refuse to have anything to do with Sprint.
And then tell your friends about it so they know to wait for the beep.
I had to clean up my sister-in-laws computer at one point. People had been downloading "free" games from god knows where, and it was horribly infected with all sorts of malware. When I got a hold of the thing, it wouldn't boot because of the crap that was installed.
And why do I care? It makes the machine sluggish and burns through the laptop battery more quickly, and the laptop runs hot.
But Firefox can do what it wants - I still use noscript and adblockplus to selectively block scripts.
No, there are companies out there patenting DNA as well, and that's another set of thorny issues.
What has Brown done for you lately?
Yeah, I have a TDI, so I know all about this. You can take it out of gear and come to a safe stop and if you know what to do under the hood you can cut the air supply which will kill the engine without damaging it. There is a relay which should cut the air automatically if you turn off the key, but there are instances where that fails (something gets stuck).
But if you don't' do any of this, then the engine will eventually burn through all of the engine oil and then seize. Given the distance the car went, this doesn't sound like what happened.
to those sorts of parties. Probably just as well - if I knew ahead of time that there was a puking robot, I might stay home. Or show up wearing a wet suit.
You could probably hook up the robot to work as a sort of fountain in a swimming pool however.
I had read somewhere that they had found that some of the vomit was in the form of an aerosol that spread in the air. They had used a fluorescent dye in their fake vomit to discover this..
I guess it gives them a better idea how large a radius needs cleaning after someone with norovirus pukes.
How about the Apple store as an iBarf.
