I don't know about other toolkits, but Angular uses it for a number of tasks. There's a lightweight clone, but plugging in jQuery to replace that is very common. I've used jQuery with ExtJS as well because Ext's equivalent was pretty bad (as of 3.X and 4.X) for doing straight forward DOM access. Learn the very basics of querying the DOM with it and adding new elements, then move on.
It is Windows 8, with a full desktop and the worst that people can say about the UI is that the start menu is a much more extreme version of the KDE start menu. In other words, it fixes most of what people hated about 8 by giving you a real desktop again.
The number of people on that linked article that say they'll stick with Windows 8.1. We've been on Windows 10 for most of the year. It's had some big issues at times since it's a developer build, but no way in Hell we'd trade it for Windows 8.X.
if you're gonna have a launch failure with total loss of all stages, at least this seems to be one of the better outcomes. First stage is very expensive and complex, fixing a major flaw there could take a long time and lots of money. But it looks like the first stage was working fine all the way to the (fiery) end, and it was a ruptured tank on the 2nd stage that caused the failure. Much better than the first stage exploding soon after liftoff.
Asians make up less than 6% of the population according to Google, whereas blacks are 13%. Yet the former are over 40% of the company at Facebook. If Facebook were to be made to "look like America" then a significant percentage of its labor force would have to be laid off.
There's nothing "woeful" about these numbers. They tell us nothing about qualified black and Hispanic candidates not getting jobs. Given the interest in diversity, it's perfectly reasonable to rule out the probability that there were any because the interest in diversity would have almost invariably lead to them being given hiring priority if they applied.
Similarly, the odds that in the vastness of space, an asteroid could just happen to strike our moon seems so incredibly remote that one could safely conclude that there are no craters on the moon.
Being as he was one of the unelected lawyers who selected our president in 2000, he apparently has no sense of irony.
There is no irony here. None. Florida fucked up its election process to hell and back. The US Constitution provides no mechanism--none--for redoing such an election or extending a presidential election until that state can get its head out of its ass and finish its election.
All they did was decide based on the law when and how to finish the vote tallying and force the state to declare a winner. It was the best decision they could constitutionally make.
You know why you should thank your lucky stars they didn't keep it going until everyone had warm fuzzies? Because then the SCOTUS would have arrogated to itself the power to let a sitting president stay in office beyond his constitutional term or allow a man who is not legally entitled to assume the presidency assume it.
Do you really want to live in a society where the SCOTUS can hold up an election so long that the President has to stay in office illegally or resign and then the VP can assume that office via succession law until the election is all hunky dory to all parties?
TFA doesn't link to it, so I had to some additional mouse clicking and text parsing to find it.
"Because boys get more informal opportunities for computing experience outside of school, this lack of formal computing education especially affects girls and many youth of color."
Inch by inch, the social justice warriors are getting closer to the truth that boys dominate these fields because of all of their informal experience. Why? Because boys tend to be more willing to go against peer pressure and do what interests them. Male nerds and geeks may resent peer pressure and bullying, but they'll stick to what they like. Never met a single boy who took the attitude that he couldn't pursue his hobbies because of peer pressure unless those hobbies were things you don't mention in polite society (and maybe even make the avante garde squeamish).
No, girls don't need "more pushing." It would be a problem if a family let the sons fire up an IDE, editor + interpreter, etc. and told the girls that that was forbidden for them. I can pretty much assure you, that in the vast majority of American households, even religious ones, that doesn't happen. What naturally happens is that the boys will say "this is cool" and try it out and the girl will make all sorts of excuses ranging from lack of interest, to what would her girlfriends think.
And no, boys by and large don't put pressure on girls to not share hobbies with them. I've never met a red-blooded male who thought a generally feminine female who shared most of his interests was a bad thing.
If productive overtime, especially that built business, meant whoever involved got performance incentives. In contracting/consulting circles, it's common to draft the grunts who don't get those incentives to help write contracts. I guarantee you that if you took 50% of management's bonus pool and shifted it to a general pool for encouraging workers to pitch in on new initiatives and stuff like that, you'd have people fighting to pitch in.
Mortal Kombat was banned simultaneously in Australia, Germany, U.K. and several other countries on what became known as Mortal Monday, 1993.
