Doing something for someone else with no expectation of it being returned is altruism.
If you want to be honest about it you really don't need universities for STEM degrees either. Most of it was taught as a part of apprenticeship programs by companies in the old days. Some of the best engineers I knew as an intern were non degreed and learned in the job. The problem for many companies is when they get done teaching someone that person is pretty valuable and is likely to leave if given the chance.
Experiences vary I guess.
I wrote a contract for a piece of test equipment that needed to accelerate a 100 kg mass for a minimum of 4m and 30 m/s^2 (3 G's). It had to work in a horizontal and vertical up direction. During testing the contractor could do it horizontally but not vertically. They insisted they met the contract because there is already 9.8 m/s^2 acceleration in the vertical direction due to gravity. Our legal department agreed and paid them.
The tests at the big labs are actually pretty cheap. Look online for various testing companies. I was interested in a MNR Lipopanel that my doctor refused to write a script for. I course he had no problem writing a script for a lifetime of statins. I went online and paid someone $70 to write a script and pay Labcorp to run the test and email the results.
Is there any little HP that has the unit conversion ability of the 48? That is the reason I still use my 48 G. You can quickly add any type of mixed units and carry them through your calculations and convert them easily. I've never seen anything better to this day.
I have experience in both. In a private business contract both parties do their best to meet the terms of the contract. The reason is simple. It's expensive to go to court and bad for future business. I've written unclear requirements. When it was a private contract if they noticed it they would call for clarification and unless it was major there was no charge. A contractor that buckles and dimes you doesn't get a second chance to bid.
A Government contract is different. If there are two ways to interprete a requirement they will always pick the wrong way and do as much work as possible down the wrong path so they get a bigger change order when it's discovered. They never get punished because technically they are right. It just rarely happens in private business.
This made me a worse driver. They had the data plotted online for you to monitor.
So I thought it would be fun to use my car to make patterns. I would get on a stretch of highway and then lower and raise my speed in intervals with my cruise control to make sawtooth patterns. So ever 5 seconds I'd bump it up 1 mph. Then down.
When each new observation that baffles the experts is explained by another theory I pay attention.
Depends on the plasma. http://www.universetoday.com/21826/swift-detects-x-ray-emissions-from-comets/
I use an Objet resin printer and when I make a tapped hole on the machine I always run a tap through just to clean up the hole.
You are more right than you know. There is an explaination that asteroids and comets have tails due to electric discharges as they move through voltage potentials in the solar system.
Exactly. I'm not suggesting everything the EU folks say is true but something like this does make a good case for thei theory in asteroids and comets. I wonder how elliptical the orbit is. That looks a lot like a plasma discharge.
This is great. Usually when a bank loses everything the taxpayers are forced to bail them out. The customers actually losing is a breath of fresh air.
If this is true thank you. I must investigate.
I can't even find a students version.
