Extra tax for running shoes?
ananyo writes "Mathematicians plan to launch a series of free open-access journals that will host their peer-reviewed articles on the preprint server arXiv. The project was publicly revealed in a blog post by Tim Gowers, a Fields Medal winner and mathematician at the University of Cambridge, UK. The initiative, called the Episciences Project, hopes to show that researchers can organize the peer review and publication of their work at minimal cost, without involving commercial publishers. 'It’s a global vision of how the research community should work: we want to offer an alternative to traditional mathematics journals,' says Jean-Pierre Demailly, a mathematician at the University of Grenoble, France, who is a leader in the effort. Backed by funding from the French government, the initiative may launch as early as April, he says."
Substance abuse? They surely don't know Japanese people. It's not USA.
Not in Go programming language.
Your comment is full of buzzwords, but without real understanding of the issue. First of all, understand this: a desktop Linux distributions is not Android or iOS. There is no "app development". A Linux-based distribution is not "personal computing", "app market" or a car. Having trouble selling your "app"? Go somewhere else.
The problem is your extrapolating attitude. In your terms, you simply sound like "there a few sick people in country X, if you go there you'll just die." Been using Linux for more than 10 years, and I never had any real issue with audio. Go troll somewhere else.
Thank you, Microsoft. However, if you read it carefully, you will see that it says "We will use it for A and B. We won't use it for X and Y" and it doesn't say "We will use it for and only for A and B". This is why they need to mention that "we won't use it for X and Y". Of course I haven't actually used or installed Windows 8! Microsoft is known to lie and subvert their users, and I wouldn't trust anything with them. I haven't forgotten about their smear campaigns and FUDs on Open/Free software, Halloween documents or their beloved manipulation tactics "embrace, extend and extinguish".
They're not telling what kind of information they're sending over is or for what purposes they're going to use it. Instead, they just rule out a few things. This makes it even more suspicious. And since I don't use Microsoft programs, I don't know, but is it enabled by default?
Indeed, if you take inflation into account, IBM doubles Apple http://techcrunch.com/2012/08/20/apple-is-not-the-most-valuable-company-in-the-history-of-the-world-ibm-won-the-prize-in-1967-with-a-value-of-1-3-trillion/
I take it you have never logged into CERN.

I'm not much familiar with Slashdot, but now I see your point. It's the tenet of pseudo-science and it is unfortunately everywhere, even in this age.
You're missing the whole point by insisting on talking about the wrong question, there is no such thing as "statistical theory of correlation theories"! It doesn't matter whether you state a weaker condition and say nonzero, physicists (or anyone who's doing real world science) just don't work like this! There are no-go theorems in physics and they're useful that's because they exactly say something can't happen in a theory (zero chance). But saying "X may or may not imply Y in a theory" is just useless, plain useless and it contains absolutely no information!
Look son, if you have some sort of correlation ---and I'm not talking about an imaginary one that exists in a fantasy world, a real physical correlation--- you gotta figure it out by guessing the theory and do experiments to question it's validity. Then you need to work your ass off and work out whether your theory has anything to do with causation. There are no such shortcuts. Saying "given a physical correlation and a randomly picked theory that fits the phenomenon, the theory will involve physical cause with x chance." is just bad science.
