"Paper money still exist and it is anonymous by design"
Not really when you realize they scan the serial numbers...
"Paper money still exist and it is anonymous by design"
Of course the arrow of causation could also be reversed - or both are caused by some third factor (wealth?). Or research bias/fraud? Or just chance.
But that will not stop most from quoting this as cause and effect.
Except those numbers just are not true. (Normally we specify the cycle life at the point where the battery still has 60% of capacity and full discharge cycles. )
And of course if your goal was to reduce CO2 you have the opposite effect due to conversion losses.
I think it will become accepted - there may need to be some etiquette established with it's use - not that that has happened with smart-phones.
Just imagine - if you do something stupid - someone might tape it and keep it in your face for ever - the Internet never forgets.
What would you say to someone taping you with their Google-glass and you found it uncomfortable?
What do we say to our kids when we try to talk to them, but the TXTing keeps interrupting?
In the end we are still social creatures, wired to react to irrepressible facial and voice expressions. Even over the phone, I can sometimes tell if someone is lying to me by bits of stress in their voice (but harder with CODEX distortion and latency).
I suppose taping peoples conversations will either make people more honest or more angry.. but definitely less forthcoming - thus an anti-social effect.
Fuel cells need ultra pure fuel in order to not spoil their extremely expensive reactors. Creating this fuel and transporting it cleanly is not cheap.
I've seen no end of articles claiming that fuel cells are the cure to everything. Tons of grant money has flowed and no products are displacing other technology.
The market place is far from perfect, but it is far better than any panel of pointy headed academics at providing workable solutions. M$ has shown the lack of ability to create new profitable products for many years now - this looks like yet another windoze fone effort.
No need for the officious, wasteful daylight savings time. Get the government out of my clocks! Just zulu time would work for me.
The problem is that they were trying to avoid words and vocabulary - thus they created symbolic abstraction - probably not realizing it is just another form of vocabulary. I would much rather use a test written by a practicing math teacher than some pointed headed Phd.
Having taught math, the real problem is the books are written by committees and a prime goal is to keep parents from complaining that their kids have to do real work to learn. ( If you want to teach your child math - find older books - books after the 60's and 70's have gone way down hill. )
I think you should hesitate and think for yourself about the definition (there are way to many that parrot and preach int the world). Not all rewards are physical items. And a physical item can remove a different feedback - both positive and negative. It isn't that difficult to analyze the vocabulary and realize the arbitrary nature of the issue. In the end, we have to ask if it has helped of hurt our true understanding of what is going on.
The reality of psychology is that people coining new poorly defined terms can publish books and papers - get grant money and profit. There are others of us that want to truly understand the world we live in. This requires a consistent, objective epistemology and the type of science described perhaps best by Richard Feynman.
Food reward is the most studied feedback - and is the food positive or the hunger a negative?
The way out of this is to realize that we evolved to survive - and the feedback impacts our survival. How psychologists classify feedback does not really matter.
Animal trainers have demonstrated repeatedly that positive reinforcement is more effective at eliciting behavior than negative. In other words, the carrot works better than the stick.
To me, this seems contradictory.
There is a lot of papers on the point you bring up. What makes something positive? Eating after not having food is positive or is it the end of a negative experience? If you have plenty to eat, is food still a reward? (animal trainers keep their animals a bit hungry ).
So is a paycheck positive? Or is it preventing a negative. etc etc..
Seems quite problematic. if a company is now building a $5B edifice to the egos of the bosses - is that going to make a good investment into the future? I don't think so.
The real world is full of people waiting for Apple to make a misstep - there is plenty of office space available at reasonable rates.
No number for worst case latency - Something needed so VoIP actually works.
I suppose it is not very good or they would have mentioned it.
As someone that works in the real world - producing wealth rather than consuming it - I agree. If you work for the government, why not quit and get a real job?
I just wish they would permanently lay off about 80% of government workers.
Shutdown has no effect on me.
Mod this up.
I figured this out - I was doing Google searches and a little while later I would have related SPAM. So I changed to using https - this stopped - so the spam was not from Google - traceroute and the only provider between me and Google was ATT - but they may be renting capacity and the traffic may be in others hands.
Don't worry, those guys running the NSA are so smart - nothing could possibly go wrong or backfire..
OR maybe there are universes in the atoms of your fingernail! or Maybe they should put the pot away and start doing real experiments..
