But Gleeson adds that there is at least one significant source of hope. As much as 99% of the fresh, unfrozen water on the planet is groundwater. “It’s this huge reservoir that we have the potential to manage sustainably,” he says. “If we choose to.”
What is he talking about here? Do all the lakes, rivers, etc., only account for 1% of the unfrozen freshwater in the world? A couple of paragraphs above Gleeson's statements: Yet Famiglietti notes that the study, which focuses on quantifying the rate of groundwater tapping versus recharging, underscores the lack of data we have on the amount of water currently in the world's aquifers. “The only way to answer the sustainability question is to answer how much water we actually have,” he says.
So we don't know how much water we have in the aquifers. Yet, Gleeson is happy to state that 99% of the unfrozen freshwater is groundwater? Also, when did water-tables go out of fashion? I thought it was the water table which was being replenished by rainwater. I realise that the article is only an overview of the analysis. Nevertheless, considering its alarmist tone, I'd have expected mention of improvements in desalination technology.
While the changes stymied the Stiltwalker attack, Adam said his own experience using the new audio tests leaves him unconvinced that they are a true improvement over the old system.
"I could only get about one of three right," he said. "Their Turing test isn't all that effective if it thinks I'm a robot."
What you state is, IMHO, for people who use their phones and tablets to do nothing besides mail and casual browsing. I think anything that involves extended typing or requires a more complex level of input still necessitates a laptop, if not a desktop. The desktop is still my most comfortable environment.
P.S. I wonder what you used to type your post
... but what are the reasons why I would need to upgrade from W7 to W8? Besides the HTML5 interface shenanigans, is there any ground-breaking feature that makes it attractive? I moved to W7 (from XP) only because of expanded memory support, 64-bit and improved driver support out of the box. I'm quite happy with it and feel no necessity to move up.
My Linux upgrades nowadays are LTS only and even those are delayed until something (usually a package without reliable backports or better driver support) absolutely demands it. Maybe I'm simply getting old, overly patient and content?
Tata Motors is a subsidiary of the Tata group. The latter is worth at least USD100B which makes it larger than BMW. The former and its subsidiaries also make everything from lorries, buses, and heavy lifting equipment to a number of other road cars besides the Nano. The Nano is in many ways considered a relative failure in India and it's their other cars which are more popular.
While export might be a possibility, the article clearly mentions that the Chinese domestic market alone demands 40000 imported JLR models which will very likely increase dramatically when they are produced locally and sold with cheaper price tags. A little googling would have also revealed that China is fast becoming the company's largest market and that JLR is expanding its factories in England and hiring more people.
If anybody needed an example of FUD, the OP would be an apt candidate.
The Indian courts have not explicitly blocked file sharing sites. All they have provided is a generic order to stop the copyright infringement. The company Copyright Labs which is looking to stop the piracy of its films, maintain that they provided the ISPs with a list of specific URLs that were to be blocked. The ISPs have apparently decided (40 days after the blocks were requested) to block entire domains rather than individual URLs. One of these parties is liable for damages for the blanket blocks.
The courts haven't necessarily done anything wrong here besides being ingenuous.
