So, let's say you are Microsoft and the Muslim registry division buys 1000 license for Microsoft SQL. Does Microsoft risk a shareholder lawsuit by denying to sell a license?
Teaching is about the only professional job I know where corporate wants random people with dubious qualifications and no experience working. This is different from what it used to be, where teachers were put through a trial of fire but trained and mentored so that those who could be good teachers in 5 years were kept. These then helped the new teachers. It is important to have a long probation, simply so that good teachers can be identified and bad teacher let go. But this probation period should not be an excuse to just have a staff that can be worked until they are burned out, and students are not learning.
Corporate education does not work. We see this at the college level with the default rates on student loans, at the school level with the constant lawsuits against firms who steal money. Public education already knows how to educate a curated population. I went to such public schools, many of friends did as well, and we all are productive tax paying members of society. It is the general population that is a challenge, and all results show that corporate schools funded with public money do worse, or at best as well, as public schools. And this does not even take into account that corporate schools have much more leeway to choose who they wish not to educate.
The problem with these reviews is that they get elevated to the to-, presumable because sellers then have everybody click to find it useful. If amazon would mark these reviews, the relegate them to a lower position, they would serve a purpose without being overwhelming.
The problem here is that normal people don't threaten to kill other people. They certainly don't challenge another person's bodyguards in public.
Threats of violence are usually actionable (by arrest or civil lawsuit), no matter who you are or who you threaten.
There is certainly a case for making jokes about the death of a sitting President, but actually lashing out with a punch-line-less threat about killing ANYONE is simply not acceptable in our society.
It's not really even a freedom of speech issue. Freedom of speech would be saying something like: 'This person has committed serious crimes. They should be put on trial and executed'.
Threats, however, are a kind of attack-- a verbal attack, certainly, but one that promises, however vaguely, a physical attack to follow.
I like to be VERY liberal when it comes to freedom of speech and allow even the most extreme speech. I feel that if you can't stomach the extremes, you don't really deserve the middle ground.
This guy wasn't stating an extreme opinion, though. He was making a declaration of intent.
I just tried reading the regulation itself. ITS REALLY long and overly complicated. But the gist of it seems they want an fake engine noise around 58dB up to 30km in speed at which tire/wind noises are about 60dB and fake noises are no longer needed.
So even though the people who elected Trump is broader, the basic tenet of isolationism and coal miners is still inherently anti-innovation. The wind mills and solar panels that are being installed in Texas and other states, and are going to be a significant part of the energy grid in the next decade, is an extensional threat to the unskilled workers who elected Trump. The semi-skilled service jobs that require an associates degree and significant computer literacy are beyond the average Trump supporter who thinks that they deserve a middle class income for doing work a computer could do more accurately.
Which further opens the path for Asia and Germany to take over the technological world. Our trains are not designed in the US, but in Germany. More of out high technology is not only going to be built, but engineered, in Asia.
Kids are given computer so they can learn skills and etiquette so when they grow up they can be successful for a lifetime. Teaching them now so they don't get fired for making p0rn on thier work laptop is a good thing.
These people you talk about are the incompetent ones. The outsourced workers are no better in this area, in fact they are often much much worse. The competent programmers in India generally get a scholarship to the US or Europe, few of them stay in India. This causes a brain drain in India where the ones left are average at best. The education system there also has a big problem with college degrees being purchased. With this bigger population its much harder to shift through them to find competent employees who haven't already been snatched up.
The larger than 100% number is because most firms operate at a loss. For example, one can easily be 200% more productive than a very lazy coworker.
This stuff mostly already exist, and device with GPS (which these would have to have in order to be geoblocked in the first place), has places in the world they won't work. Primarily though they can't go over a certain speed or altitude, this is to avoid commerical GPS units from being used for guided missiles.
Yep, this is about web games only. That said, WebGL is becoming a powerful replacement, its certainly better than Flash. With Unity now providing an export to WebGL option. Its nice in a way to see WebGL take off. Sure this isn't the future of PC gaming, but it certainly can be a great opportunity for hobbyist and small publishers. It would be smart of Steam to support WebGL games to some degree.
Yeah, in their announcement demo they showed the dial as a virtual dial when left on the desk. So I think it probably will function fully without putting it on the screen. Though they didn't cover this fully.
1.79 x 10^12 furlongs per fortnight -- it's not just a good idea, it's the law!
