It's like writing an essay. The quality of the source code really depends on a number of things; whether it was something new or familiar to the programmer, how distracting/peaceful the environment was, how much time was available to polish up and refine the code, and whether there was any framework that they could use (such as node based programming, GUI widgets, or the TCP/IP network layer models, template files for writing new modules).
It's known that the date of birth and geographic latitude does affect personality, but that's down to how sunlight affects the mothers' hormones, and consequently brain development while in the womb.
I think this "No Losers" bologna came from those schools which just had a single annual school sports day. Everyone attended (ninety plus students in each year), and each year in each race, the same half dozen students kept winning. So six students go home with a handful of medals, and everyone else go back home empty handed. And that was the one and only competition there was. No spelling bees, science fairs, art exhibitions, book reading competitions.
More because they feel they can manage their own land resources better than the Eurocrats in London or Brussels can.
As an example, have a look at the situation in Somerset and Devon. Eurocrats pay farmers to cut down trees and clear land, but those trees helped remove water from the ground. Then the Eurocrats fund a scheme to return the rivers to their natural state and create a bird sanctuary. But those rivers helped remove heavy rainfall from the ground. Result? Third world living conditions for thousands of people for weeks.
Agreed - it's a POS.
I installed Pitivi
Then, following the suggestions posted here, I grabbed the latest version from source (which through trial and error, I found required adding a source repo and installing build dependencies before attempting to install from source). I configured it, built it, and tried to run it. It immediately errored out, complaining that I need to install yet more missing dependencies (GES this time). I googled the problem, saw lots of people complaing about this, and found some vague instructions on the pitivi wiki (http://wiki.pitivi.org/wiki/Building_with_GES) explaining how to install it.
At this point, I threw in the towel.
And apparently there is a new weather phenomenon called super-thunder which can shatter windows:
I thought they were journalists.
Some of them probably think they are too. I'm not sure that it's always applicable. If you do journalism by interviewing people on TV, they're journalists. If you do journalism by researching stuff and putting together news stories, probably not so much.
If they're entertainers, they are not, by definition, journalists.
What definition is that? There's a reason the word "infotainment" exists. People aren't watching Bill O'Reilly to get news distilled and efficiently transported into their brains. They're watching him to see him bust heads, but they also get some news in the process. Baseball players play baseball on camera, but they're entertainers. Porn stars have sex on camera, but they're entertainers. Bottom line is that if your job is to put butts in chairs and eyes on screens, you're an entertainer for the purposes of figuring out what your salary should be.
I think that like you, I'm inclined to dole the word "journalist" out a little less generously. If you're just reading news that somebody else gathered, you're not a journalist. If you interview newsworthy people and get information out of them for public consumption? I'd say that qualifies as journalism.
Did you choose not to read the whole statement that you quoted and just pick out the piece you wanted?
Oh, I read it. It just wasn't worth a comment.
In English, every word can be verbed. Would that it were so in our programming languages.
