Smoking and drinking effects all of your body; not just your heart. Most importantly, it effects your brain.
FALSE! The NSA cares more about your data than you do!
Hydrogen is great stuff. You just need to store it bonded with carbon. Do it right, and you can make butane for fuel cell usage.
Take it a step further and let me run my laptop off a Bic lighter or two and i'll be happy.
As another poster said, other laptops will use the battery as a temporary "capacitor" (buffer) to take the spike in load upon demand. For example: when you spike all cores of the CPU to 100% usage from idle when kicking off a video transcoding job. Many AC/DC adapters can't buffer the spike in current. That, and my surface mounted components in laptops don't carry enough capacitance to offset the load spike too.
So do you give them two weeks notice when you terminate their employment? That would be quite courteous. Or does the courtesy only get extended if it favors you?
People often forget that in most countries of the world (including America) that the situation is entirely asymmetric.
If you quit without notice or cause, the employer is entitled to no compensation.
If you are fired without notice or cause, the employer is then liable for some compensation. In many cases that liability is for a lot longer than 2 weeks (13+ in America - we call it unemployment insurance, and employers do pay increased costs for every one of their former employees that is drawing)
So lets not simply assume that the "courtesy" should so simply extend both ways. If you want to justify why it should, then lets hear it.
Or, you know, you might want to look in it, since if you are basing your theory on these things, then it's up to you to do the research which demonstrates how they are significant.
This statement right here is the problem with most people. They, like you, dont understand what the fuck they are talking about.
All the long-duration proxies (more than a few hundred years) do measure as an average over hundreds and even thousands of years because there is too much short term noise in the signal. Thusly statements about the rate of warming on short time scales cannot be made about periods in the past more than a few hundred years. He doesnt need to look into why this is because its proven within mathematics (more specifically, in the fields of statistics, calculus, and now information theory) rather than physics, chemistry, or "earth science."
Thousand-year running average cannot ever make meaningful statement abouts hundred year derivatives. because its impossible. You just argued that he should re-prove whats already known for an absolute undeniable fact.
Does that mean that of the 1200+ waivers, that Unions got > 600? no.
Before you say that union contracts are negotiated, and therefore cannot be altered, ask yourself if the minimum wage gets increased, do union wages get automatically increased? Isn't that a change in federal law, outside the control of the unions?
June 30, 2013 - mass protests erupt calling for the presidents resignation after severe fuel shortages and electricity outages
Understatement of the year.
It was arguably the largest protest in the history of the world. Some claims are as much as 14 million people, nearly 17% of the Egyptian population.
To put that in perspective, 17% of the American population is more than 50 million people.
If 50 million Americans were protesting in the streets demanding that Obama (or Bush) to be removed from office, and as a response Obama (or Bush) then held a 5 hour television broadcast declaring that he will not only not be leaving office but that additionally that the constitution will never apply to him, then I damn well expect the American military to do the same thing.
If delays are acceptably part of the law, why then the veto threat and 100% Democrat party nay vote on the House bill that codifies the delay?
The rules on a federal exchange (not state exchanges), which is what the Congress and their staffs would be participating in, state that there is no subsidy. Since the law specifically moved them from their existing plan (so much for keeping the plan you have) to the federal exchange, one could argue that no federal government payment is allowed. Yes, they are only getting back what they had previously, but that is not what the law said.
The second hand nature of these stories is often a huge problem. People could fabricate the story. But if the story is true, other people could fabricate that they investigated it and "found" it was a hoax.
An academic neurosurgeon called Eben Alexander contracted a severe case of bacterial meningitis. After he recovered, he could not, from what he knew of the brain, explain where in the brain he could have been creating the rich experiences he had. The hallucination would have had to happen somewhere in the brain, and he recalls they were very rich, cognitively sophisticated, highly structured experiences.
But those parts of his brain which are normally said to be responsible for rich experience were in a soup of pus, bacteria, and comatose.
Anyway, if one can stomach the book title ("Proof of Heaven") and get past that obvious religious selling point, the actual story he tells is interesting. He could be wrong of course about where in the brain his experiences were happening, or when they were happening, but as he says, when he was operating on people, if they reported anything unusual, he'd just tell them that they had been very sick. Now that he's experienced it himself, he doesn't see how that amount of rich detailed and structured experience could have been generated by a sick brain.
Basically, we don't understand much about the brain, or how it relates to consciousness. The parts of his brain that are known to create rich experience were not available at the time of the sickness. So there's a lot that's not known.
Just to restate for clarity's sake: if the experience he had were really created by the brain, then most of what is known about the brain is wrong.
Foreign SMTP traffic being blocked at the ISP level. Home IP block ranges being blackholed. PTR records not provided to home accounts. All these issues are solved using a Smart Host. Unfortunately, depending on the monthly fees, it might be cheaper to just upgrade to a business class ISP account or host your e-mail elsewhere.
I've only had to setup Smart Hosts for clients with an SBS box that was in rural parts of America. Sometimes netblock ranges were blackholed and/or PTR records weren't supported at the ISP level for their DSL connection. And they were lucky to even have that for connectivity.
Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
