Isn't he the one who pushed for all people on welfare to be drug tested....by the company his wife owns? Cha-ching!
The golden rules:
Know your limits
Know your vehicles performance limits
Know your vehicles foot print on the pavement.
I couldn't agree with this more.
If you want to test your cars limits, go to the track (or at least to a place where you'll bother absolutely no-one else). Honestly, track day is the most fun you'll have with your clothes on.
Yeah, rear wheel drive done properly is not the homocidal axe murderer type car that some people fear, and others (including myself know and love).
Take a big beemer or merc for a drive and understand how rear wheel drive can and should behave. Yes if you're talking massive massive power (AMG or M5, etc) then it will demand respect, but power levels that would see a front wheel drive basically become un-drivable are no problem. I actually have to be quite a dick to get my 5 series to step out. Why? good chassis balance, well sorted suspension and massive rubber on it.
If gambling is illegal in Florida, why are people still allowed to bet on Wall Street? It's just another bookmaking operation
There could be a better way to search google-and it’s not hard to understand ( http://www.emarkettips.com/make-money-online/1-how-to-search-google-key-tips)
There is lots more than that; solar panels, batteries, regulators, rotation / positioning thrusters, antennas. Then there is temperature management and the housing of the whole thing.
I guess the low power consumption leads to low weight which in turn leads to a cheaper launch cost.
LOL, I think you're an optimist. Awk! I've sed too much already. Look! Perl!
This is a feature, not a bug. See: Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, Mercedes, etc.
Yes, if you drive in snow you probably want ALL wheel drive.
Since you keep making sweeping and ridiculous statements, you should probably cite case law to support your position. The problem here is simply that you are the one who doesn't give a damn what the actual law is in any given jurisdiction, and this actually varies substantially across the United States. Go ahead and cite your sources, and I'll gladly reply with plenty of cases where self defense using a gun against an unarmed assailant was considered justified. In short, you're trying to convince others that your fantasy world is reality. Grow up.

The streaming video experience on many mobile phone networks frequently flat out sucks. A YouTube video that would never trouble your home wi-fi connection sputters to a near halt before dividing its time between buffering and coughing up bursts of unsynched video and sound. And while having Netflix available on your phone seems to be a technological marvel, it's pretty useless in the wild. Plus, many phone data plans have been capped at very low levels, making streaming a full movie potentially very expensive.
Thanks to the entertainment industry, you can't even temporarily download a streamed movie to watch it later in order to bypass lousy connection speeds or data overages. This includes streaming services where the buffet pricing allows you to watch the same movie dozens of times consecutively, if that's your thing. A buffered copy is an infringing copy (in their eyes, but not a key court's), even if the temporary file deletes itself after consumption. The entities behind the TPP push are still hoping to subject buffered copies to licensing, even though the key Cablevision ruling in the 2nd Circuit said that such copies are not infringing.
As it stands now, the entertainment industry is unable to set up its toll booth on buffer copies, but that hasn't stopped it from trying. Between the ongoing push for buffer licenses and differing IP laws in various countries, providers of streaming services have played it safe by not offering a "download and view later" option. Even a self-deleting, single use file would be considered a violation of copyright law.
Fortunately, Dr. Shivendra S. Panwar has devised a workaround process that should satisfy both rights holders and mobile users.
Streamloading is Dr. Panwar's term for his new fusion of streaming and downloading. He hopes it will help wireless carriers get more mileage out of their bandwidth, while also helping data consumers watch more videos on the go.It seems to be a rather elegant solution and one that you would hope would satisfy rights holders. Of course, we've seen the entertainment industry throw the brakes on other technological advancements, especially if it sees the new innovation to be potentially pirateable and short a toll booth or two. See also the ongoing Aereo battle, in which TV broadcasters have claimed the very inelegant process deployed by Aereo (in order to comply with every possibly applicable section of copyright law) is actually evidence that Aereo's service is infringing. Checking and double-checking your processes against IP law only gets you so far. After that, you're subject to the entertainment industry's version of the "heckler's veto."
The technology works by bisecting video into two layers. First is a base layer, which streams during viewing, then there would be a higher layer, which the user would pre-download from some high-bandwidth location like the home or office. While the higher layer would be useless on its own, and thus in compliance with intellectual property laws whose aim is to prevent free sharing, it would nonetheless comprise about 3/4ths of the total data.
Because the streamed base layer would be necessary to unlock the viewing experience while still constituting only about 1/4th of the data, effective and lawful streaming on the go would require fairly low bandwidths. The low bandwidth required to stream the content would mean that data-heavy movies and TV shows would be watchable on your phone even in zones of spotty coverage.
Panwar has high hopes for this process, which would operate in an area still untested by copyright law. It looks like a win for consumers and possibly even streaming services, but I'm not sure wireless providers will like it as much as Panwar believes they will.
I see this as a triple win scenario. Carriers are facing a bandwidth crunch. The 4G LTE systems are not keeping up with demand for data. ATT has said publicly that they might run out of capacity this year. A crude way for them to control demand is to raise data charges, which would drive away customers. Anything delivering quality data at a lower cost is good for the carriers. That's the first win.Carriers may talk a lot about "bandwidth crunches" and "data hogs," but it's all just a sales pitch with slightly apocalyptic undertones ("running out of capacity;" "stressing our infrastructure") designed to keep customers strapped into low limit data plans with high overage fees. It's been basically a way to print money from day one. Finding a way to move less data over their networks will make you a friend of the people, but wireless providers' reactions will range from indifferent to antagonistic as a more efficient process cuts into their cash cows. About the only way to sell them on this is to tie the delivery system exclusively to one of their favored, net-neutrality-violating services and portals so they can deliver "preferred" data without further taxing their undertaxed infrastructure. "Delivering data at a lower cost" has been going on for years, even as service prices continue to increase.
Other than that, the process looks like it could make mobile video streaming a rather enjoyable experience, rather than a tedious near-slideshow that sucks for everyone involved but your wireless provider.

"There is no way that anybody can read them."
tell that to a linux kernel, i'm running a vm with several cores and 7233 bogomips. 7 billion instructions per second that is suitably fast enough to read and understand the meaning of the words spewing out of Washington.
By that logic, all laws are "piracy", since they take money and weapons to enforce. When it comes down to it, it's impossible to have any laws if you don't ultimately have the threat of force to back them up. And if you have no laws, the strongest people will conquer the weak, set up kingdoms and empires, and make laws, just like they did in the beginning.
Editor's Note: I originally posted these Vietnam itineraries in 2007, to answer the many questions I was fielding from friends about the best places to visit in Vietnam . Over the past two years dozens of travelers have asked some great questions about what to see and do in Vietnam, which I wanted to share. If you have a question, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to reply.
Let's start with the coffee. Because inVietnamcoffee is more than just a drink. It doesn't come venti or frappuccinoed or with whipped cream. And it definitely does not cost $3.75 a shot. No, coffee in Vietnam is thick, cheap and super-sweet. And it is beautiful.
Good coffee is just one of the many happy discoveries I had in Vietnam. It was my first trip, and as an American I had some baggage about visiting. You know,the warand all. The Vietnam War (or as it's called locally, the American War). Telling friends that I was planning a trip toHa NoiandHo Chi Minh(formerly Saigon) generated a shock-surprise-fear response that I was not prepared for, at least from people old enough to remember the nightly news reports from the battlefront.
So I was half-expecting a chilly response when I arrived. After all more than 400,000 Vietnamese civilians were killed in the war, not to mention the impact on the land itself (ever heard of Agent Orange?). There were plenty of reasons for the Vietnamese not to like Americans.
Yet the reality could not have been more different. No matter where I went, no matter who I met, the people of Vietnam were unfailingly polite, friendly, approachable. I am not just saying that, either. I've been to dozens of countries, and there is no contest here: by a mile the Vietnamese win the awards for "most friendly" and "most gracious."
The other great surprise for me in Vietnam was the food. Fresh, simple and full of flavor. Since my trip I've become addicted topho(rice noodle soup), which is delicious for breakfast or dinner;gao nep(sticky rice), which is suitable for the vegetarians among us; andnem(spring rolls), made with rice paper, minced pork, crab, mushrooms and extra-fine noodles called vermicelli.
I spent almost 3 weeks in Vietnam,traveling south to north from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi. My Vietnam itinerary is below, focusing on the best places to see in Vietnam in case you're planning a trip of your own. If you have questions about Vietnam, leave a reply and I'll do my best to field an answer for you. You can also see some of my photos from Vietnam over on the Viator flickr site.
- BangkoktoHo Chi Minh City(direct flight)
- 2 days in Ho Chi Minh City. On this last trip I didn't get a chance to visit theMekong Delta, but wish I had. It's a beautiful spot and I always love exploring it. The city itself is worth exploring. The American War museum is first-rate. Plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs have opened in the past few years. I've heard some people say that Ho Chi Minh City has the best nightlife in Southeast Asia.
- 3 days in Mui Ne, a postcard-perfect beach village, very quiet and laid-back. Definitely not as busy as Na Trang. I prefer the calm of Mui Ne to the bustle of Na Trang.
- Then it was off to Hoi An (via an overnight train from Na Trang to Danang). Hoi An was my second-favorite spot in Vietnam. The center of Hoi An is a well-preserved French Colonial relic, with limited access to cars. For me the place was heaven. Hoi An has cafes, street markets, riverside restaurants, and the best hand-tailored clothes in Vietnam. I took a cooking class (you can bookVietnam cooking classes over on Viator) and learned how to make fish wrapped in banana leaves, squid salad and homemade dumplings. For less than US$100 I also had 7 shirts, 3 pants, 1 jacket and 1 suit made to order. The quality is not perfect. But who cares at these prices. One tip: If you own a shirt that you like or that fits you especially well, bring it! The local tailors can make copies in a dozen different fabrics.
- We took a short flight from Danang toHanoi, my favorite place in all of Vietnam. I don't know what it is about Hanoi that I clicked with. Maybe the jam-packed streets, packed sardine-style with bicycles and mopeds, which you cross at your own risk. Or maybe the tree-lined streets bursting with all manner of stores, shops, workshops, alleyways, impromptu temples, sidewalk restaurants.
- We also did a trip toHalong Bay, which is definitely worth doing. If the weather is hot, consider doing an overnight or two-night trip so you can swim and relax and take in the scenery. The setting is absolutely unique, with rounded rock formations as far as the eye can see, often shrouded in mist that gives Halong Bay an otherworldly feel.
- Last but not least, it was a flight back to Bangkok. While you're there, get a message at the Wat Po Traditional Thai Massage School (on the grounds of Wat Po itself, in the heart of Bangkok). It costs something like $5 for 30 minutes. Was it the best massage I've ever had? Yup. And it's enough to make me plan another trip to Vietnam. Via Thailand, of course.

Formula 1 race cars are designed to shatter upon major impact. It take the energy and throw it away from the driver. At the very least, the carbon-fiber monocoque (tub) that the driver sits in will be the last line of defense .
Did you know that during his high-speed crash at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2007, Robert Kubica was subjected to more than 28 times the acceleration of gravity? This meant that his body effectively weighed two tons instead of 73 kilograms. Millions of spectators expected the worst, but thanks to the strict safety precautions in Formula One racing Kubica suffered only minor bruises. formula1.com
I very much doubt this would meet the US safety requirements.
For instance, if you have a very rigid-bodied vehicle and a crumply-bodied vehicle, you'll most likely experience more acceleration in an accident with the stiff bodied vehicle, as the crumply vehicle takes more time to come to a complete stop.
This crash test by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety speaks for itself
I know which car I'd rather be in
Here are top 4 ways you can choose to make good money online right now. ( http://www.emarkettips.com/make-money-online/38-ways-to-make-money-online)
who is better a CEO who wants a new BMW or the GOV?
The CEO, sadly, because he knows he has to convince me to give him my dollars.
The GOV will just take them by threat of violence.
Don't pay our extortionate rates and you dont get health care. That isn't convincing, that's the same kind of coercion you accuse the govt of.
The difference is the government has to appease the people once every 3-4 years.
Now I'm from Australia, I pay $1350 in the Medicare levy (socialised medicine, the levy is 1.5% of my income) and another $850 for better hospital cover. So a total of $2200 for top hospital cover PER YEAR. In the US a single person younger than me can expect to pay US$700-800 PER MONTH for average care.
The only issue that I have with the system is that because I'm over 30 and earn over the A$84K threshold I have to get private health to avoid extra levy's and surcharges. But I earn $90K a year and pay $2.2K for health care.
Single payer really does work better because the govt's inefficiency is less of a cost than the private sectors profit motive.

And that will be the death (pardon the term) of manned air combat -- once the enemy has so many great drones that the U.S. pilot survival rate nears 0%, we'll quit sending people out in planes to fight.
The Apple iOS is quite versatile although there could be an argument that it is not fully utilized because it is locked to only providing apps from iTunes. It is also locked to carriers from the factory and this plays into the hand or those who see it as being limited. Unlocking your iOS based hardware removes these restrictions. Your unlocked Apple hardware can download applications from any online source and you can switch networks as you so desire. Jailbreaking your device involves hacking the iOS at the firmware so that it can accept other SIM cards and download unauthorized third-party apps. These jailbreak tools can work on Mac and Windows systems says iPhone Unlock Express.
A blacklisted application for iPhone and iPads are downloadable programs that Apple has rejected. They may be blacklisted for several reasons. The program may be competing directly with an native Apple program or they may not have complied to Apple policy. There are some developers that will deliberately not get listed on official online store because they do not like one policy or the other. The only way of getting such programs to your iDevice is to have it jailbroken. It may be iPhones, iPads or mini, once a jailbreak software is successfully installed, your phone or tablet becomes independent of the Apple ecosystem even when it can still use the platform.

So, are you saying I should upgrade from 23 to 40 channels on my CB? I was wondering if I should just go for something with upper and lower sidebands.
The 2nd amendment is because we didn't have a standing military at the time,
That is false two respect. First, the US Army as a force in being predates the Constitution, which is where the 2nd Amendment is found.
The U.S. Army as a permanent institution began on 3 June 1784, when the Confederation Congress approved a resolution to establish a regiment of 700 officers and men. Intended as a force to assert federal authority in the Ohio River Valley, the regiment deployed at a string of posts along the Ohio where it functioned as a frontier constabulary during the last years of the Articles of Confederation era.
Congress adopted this tiny force after the reorganization of the government under the Constitution in 1789. Responding to the outbreak of Indian war in the Old Northwest—and especially to St. Clair's defeat in 1791, the worst setback at Indian hands in the army's history—the government expanded the military establishment to over 5,000 in 1792. Organized as the “American Legion” and commanded by Maj. Gen. Anthony Wayne, the army defeated the northwestern tribes at Fallen Timbers in 1794. During the same year, in response to European threats, the government launched a program of seacoast fortifications and added a corps of artillerists and engineers to build and man them. -- more
Second, the 2nd Amendment rights were not intended to be time limited.
Some people suggest the justification clause provides a built-in expiration date for the right. So long as a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state (or so long as the right to keep and bear arms contributes to a well-regulated militia, or so long as the militia is in fact well-regulated), the argument goes, the people have a right to keep and bear arms; but once the circumstances change and the necessity disappears, so does the right. 12
This reading seems at odds with the text: The Amendment doesn't say "so long as a militia is necessary"; it says "being necessary." Such a locution usually means the speaker is giving a justification for his command, not limiting its duration. 13 If anything, it might require the courts to operate on the assumption that a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state, since that's what the justification clause asserts. 14
Having those firearms at that time served a legitimate need.
They still do. Besides, whether you recognize it or not, if you are an American man you have almost certainly been a part of the militia.
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are -
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
Nice to see that you're pretty much completely ignorant of the reasons behind the 2nd amendment.
If I have more to learn I don't think you have anything to teach. What you "know" about the matter seems to be wrong.
Actually riding on the sidewalk is much more dangerous.
As i said, whether it's dangerous depends on a lot of things. There are plenty of places in my area where there are long stretches of sidewalk without driveways or crosswalks. There are people who ride at more or less a walking pace, which incurs no more danger than walking itself. There are places such as open beachfront areas where there are enough cyclists on sidewalks that drivers are conditioned to look for them. There are places where a roadway is grooved, or has badly placed drainage grates that make a sidewalk a safer option. And so on.
I'm a regular bike commuter. I generally avoid sidewalks, unless trails are routed over them. My post was primarily to correct the misinformation that cycling on the sidewalk is illegal; this is one of several commonly held myths about cycling law (another one, absurdly, being that cyclists must ride on sidewalks). In some places sidewalk cycling is illegal, and some places it's dangerous. It is not, however, universally both of these.
