Not always. I was offered a deal that allowed for a sort of guilty but not officially guilty plea. I had to confess to crimes that I didn't commit to the judge, but officially the plea was not considered an admission of guilt, just an admission that the state had sufficient evidence to convince a jury that I was guilty. This is something of a technicality since the official record records agreement to every bullshit charge I was accused of, but I don't have an actual guilty conviction on my record and more importantly didn't spend a day in jail.

Why are you fixated on Soviet scientists? The soviet scientists were conscripted if they had anything that could help the war effort. All the other world powers did the exact same thing. After the war there was also a big race by the victors to find and collect every German scientist the could. Oppenheimer and his team were just one example of how non-military scientists can used to help the war effort. Do you think the advances in nuclear science at the time would have advanced as fast it did if we were not fighting a global war? They were working with a unlimited budget and resources and were able to move their ideas from the blackboard to the real world. As a side note remember that besides advancing nuclear science and weaponization at Los Alamos the punched-card machines were introduced thanks to IBM.

The borders of every country in the world has at one time or another been drawn in blood. Sometimes the same border disputes happen more the once. There are several examples of this going on right now all over the world. Israel, Turkey, Iraq, China, Japan, England, Argentina, and Spain all have border disputes or sovereignty conflicts. Every one of these disputes could lead to war under certain conditions. The human race has been fighting wars non-stop ever since there were enough people to pick sides and bash each other over the head with clubs fighting for control of the biggest cave and best looking women. War or the threat of war is not going to disappear any time soon.

As far the F-22 program goes I do have some direct knowledge of the program in general and specific knowledge in some areas. How did I possibly get this knowledge? Well it turns out that I have been a Software Engineer and HMI designer for over 25 years. You should be able to see the connection. The F-22 was basically in concept and design mode for 20 years before the started building the plane. When they started they had no where near the computing power needed to implement certain capabilities that were on the drawing board. They did not have the materials to implement the stealth capabilities. This one program was able to feed tons of money and raised the priority of the research into the advancements they needed. The various vendors did make advancements in sensors and control system technologies that they incorporated into some of their non-military projects way before the plane was built.

Flattered with your title (it's my first spoken language), but you really have no idea what you're talking about.

There are various "accents" of Mandarin, but Cantonese, Hokkien, etc are not accents. I'd say they're somewhere between dialects and distinct languages. Even discounting phonetic differences, the written vocabulary can be very different -- to the extent that I probably understand written Japanese more than the colloquial use of various Chinese "dialects". (To a Mandarin speaker, I often hypothesize that Cantonese written in Chinese characters can be harder to understand than Japanese-written-in-mostly-kanji... it's a fun fact that shows the divergence of the local dialects/languages)

Not sure whether anyone thinks that people speaking Hokkien "suck" (I haven't heard of any such "dialect-discrimination", though the official discouragement [or even persecution] of local spoken dialects is surely happening), but it's a practical problem for communication if there's no common legible language for people within a country.

Cantonese as written in Hong Kong and Macau uses Traditional characters, along with some characters of its own. Some of the characters as used in Cantonese have different meanings as opposed to when they're used in Mandarin (and not just different pronunciation).

I live with a Cantonese speaker, and have visited Guangdong and Hong Kong numerous times.

Oh, and I've also got a English-Cantonese dictionary and phrasebook that includes words and phrases such as "shopping centre", "department of surgery", "Space Museum", and "hovercraft".

Fine. Throw the real plate in the trunk. Hell, even if you don't, the cop [or a camera] has to see your plate, then figure that you aren't broadcasting a signal [out of perhaps 100 vehicles around you, if say, you are driving next to a parking lot]. And if you are having all this receiving/transmitting, you have to hook it up to the car battery, giving you the opportunity of "oops, bad connection".

But really, if they were going to do that [have an encrypted signal that the local cop car would pick up], why bother having a display?
So other people can rat you out?
Just for a little bit of ad revenue [whohoo untargeted ads!]?

So there are all kinds of things this opens the door to for people who want to do bad things, while still having the original door still wide open [theft and/or swap] of the original plate.

Submission + - Newport International Group Movie Reviews Barcelona: 5 Grunner Ben Affleck skal

michrodriguez2013 writes: Source
Ben Affleck er nye Bruce Wayne/Batman. Komme over den. Det skjer.

Mens Ben Affleck var ikke på de flestes liste over mulige kandidater til Batman, har forhåpentligvis av nå alle de galne sunket. Men det er fortsatt folk som insisterte at Ben Affleck vil ødelegge Caped Crusader. Gjett hva? Du tar feil. Og her er fem grunner Hvorfor.

5. Han er allerede en superhelt
Daredevil kan ikke ha vært en filmatisk klassisk, men det er ikke så forferdelig som du kanskje husker. Seriøst. Gi den en annen ur. Uansett, Affleck gi ikke sin beste forestilling heller, men han klarer å trekke av en duell rolle, betyr portretterer Matt Murdock og Daredevil. Det er ikke en lett oppgave. Og uansett hvordan Daredevil viste seg, at filmen skal ha gitt Affleck noe erfaring, enten godt eller dårlig, om hvordan å portrettere en superhelt. Dessuten. Du kan ikke utsette Affleck for svakhetene i Daredevil. Det var bare så mye han kunne gjøre med det skriften og retning. For eksempel husker filmen Larry Crowne? Den hadde to Oscar-vinnerne i det, Tom Hanks og Julia Roberts, og det var en ganske dårlig film.

4. Han har ser
Joss Whedon, dude spissen Marvels filmatisk univers, gjort dette kallet umiddelbart. Affleck har perfekt haken for Kapp og hetten. Det høres dumt, men det er en viktig faktor for rollen som Batman. Og han er bakt. Uten å få alle Kevin Smith mann-beundrerlisten på Affleck, vil dude definitivt se delen. Og han også skal se delen av Bruce Wayne. Bare se på ham rock den fargen i bildet ovenfor. Han trekker som av perfekt. Han ser helt ut som Bruce Wayne.

3. Han er en Fan
Affleck er en tegneserie fan. Han har alltid vært. Han er ikke en av disse aktørene som får en ledende rolle i en tegneserie-basert film og deretter prøve å innhente kildematerialet. Affleck er en geek. Og han bor hver fanboy drøm. Han spiller avvikende Batman. Tror du virkelig at en fan av the Dark Knight skal ødelegge slik en viktig og ikoniske karakter? aldri verden. Affleck vil behandle rollen med respekt og vil gjøre tegn rettferdighet.

2. Han har blitt en respektert skuespiller/regissør
I år folk hatet Afflecks fungerende ferdigheter eller mangel på. Så skjedde en morsom ting. Han gikk bak kameraet og regissert flere flikk. Han spilte også i et par av dem. Og gjett hva? Folk skjønte at Ben Affleck var en talentfull fyr. Byen og Argo opptjent Affleck ikke bare ros fra kritikere og fans, men også Academy Awards. Vi vet ikke hva endret, men Affleck har forbedret sine ferdigheter og har bevist at han faktisk kan fungere. Som for regissere delen tror du at Zach Snyder velkommen tillegg av en Oscar-vinnende regissør for kastet? Vi tror hvis han blir sittende fast Ben vil være der å gi noen råd.

1. Han er en sjef
En av de største bekymringene om Affleck er at han ikke er egentlig en tøff fyr. Ikke bare det, men hvor på jorden kunne Ben Affleck's Batman challenge Superman? Mens noen aspekter av det vil bli strøket ut i filmen, sender vi til deg disse stykker av bevis som bevise Ben Affleck er en sjef. Den øverste videoen er en fan-laget trailer for forsøksvis tittelen Man of Steel oppfølgeren Batman vs Superman, det er kjempeflott. Bunnen klippene er fra kjelerommet og The Town. Alle tre viser Affleck kan være en kraft å regne med.

My wife is Chinese, and I've visited her family who live around Shanghai.

Her parents and grandparents only speak Shanghainese, and thus can't read or write. This isn't because Mandarin is "too hard", but because their generation never had a proper education, and they don't really encourage the elderly to reeducate themselves.

My wife's generation grew up speaking Shanghainese, but then learnt Mandarin at school.

The new generation of kids know enough Shanghainese to understand their grandparents, but they don't want to speak it. Their parents commonly speak Mandarin, and they're being taught Mandarin from the earliest levels of school. Within a couple generations it wouldn't surprise me if Shanghainese becomes an endangered language.

The government seems to have a very successful campaign to move everyone to Mandarin, and they are also actively trying to prevent English from penetrating too deep into Chinese culture. If China can maintain its position as a superpower then Mandarin will definitely become a necessary language for international business.

The assumption of hostility/mistrust should be the default stance, but you must be able to use the network to build trust. It must also have strong pseudonymity to allow you to maintain a presence while controlling how much about yourself you want to reveal.

It also might have something to do with the content though. It feels like Chinese fiction is easier on my eyes, whereas English is better for technical and (complex) argumentative writing.
