The probably didn't mean this "Bixby"...
Good luck with that.
Google doesn't keep that kind of data.
They aren't going to be able to comply with the warrant, no matter how intrusive this particular judge mistakenly believes they are.
They should ask the NSA instead. The NSA *does* keep this kind of data.
All you need is the --enable-alsa configure option. The resulting Firefox will prefer PulseAudio if it is present, but will use pure ALSA if it is not.
I blame "whole word reading".
Pople who learned to read that way simply do not read for pleasure. They read when they are required to do so, but not otherwise.
If you are a "whole word reader", and you encounter a word you've never seen before, it's off to the dictionary to look up the new ideogram (since that how the words are taught using that method), even if you actually use the word daily when speaking.
I've occasionally wondered if we are going to have to make books available in "text speak", in the same way that we make them available in braille, in order to comply with the Americans With Disabilities act.
I'm pretty sure the Romans thought their empire was going to last forever, and built based on that eventuality.
So what you're arguing is that the Romans would have build just as ephemerally as we do, even though they didn't expect to be ephemeral, had slaves, and didn't have labor unions that needed make-work contracts to keep the workers happy.
By "selection bias", you are referring to the Romans killing engineers and architects who built things that fell down, leaving only non-dead engineers and architects to design and build new things, right?
The flip side of that coin is that if you overbuild the bridges, you may only be able to afford to fix half of them.
The flip side of that is that there are Roman aqueducts still in service, because the Romans overbuilt as well. So you won't *need* to fix the other half of them.
My vaccination card (which I do still have for some reason) lists the vaccinations separately while my son's lists a single MMR entry, and I do remember getting separate shots for my booster. As for why I didn't get the combined shot, it might have been a local government thing (vaccination schedules vary widely between counties/states/countries) or a cost thing (new drugs are typically more expensive than old ones). But they *were* administered on the same day...
I agree that "pulled from the market" is overstating things - it was just supply and demand.
"Build better bridges".
Not really. The better we've become at engineering, the more we cut the bridge designs from "massively overbuilt, in such a way as to endure they never fall apart" to replace them with "barely overbuilt, in such a way as the first storm slightly out of the overage tolerance we've allowed will cause everything to be destroyed".
Rather than trying to figure out how to cut our tolerances as close to the bone as possible, we should probably go back to massively overbuilding things -- and then use our knowledge of tolerances to *ensure* they are massively overbuilt.
If we did that, we wouldn't have things like the 2007 I-35W bridge collapse happening. The bridges might sink into the ground under their own weight, but they wouldn't be collapsing.
The only credible research I've seen showed a possible connection to intestinal bacteria getting out of control after vaccination in some young children, with the advice to simply spread the initial two dozen or so recommended vaccinations over a slightly longer period of time (I think it was 48 months), with prioritization given to highly infectious and deadly diseases (e.g. meningitis).
There are also a bunch of "non-medical" ingredients in some manufacturer's vaccines that are prescription drugs (statins, etc.) used to "bootstrap" the vaccines but that are not approved for use in children otherwise. Some localities do enforce requirements on such ingredients in children's vaccines while others don't... I'm not aware of any specific research into the side-effects of such ingredients, but (as an example) our son's pediatrician avoided given vaccines containing unapproved ingredients to children out of simple caution.
Ultimately I think the biggest problem is that both "sides" are demonizing the other, with "pro vaccine" people calling anyone who has questions or fears about vaccines an idiot, dangerous, etc. and governments providing a liability shield to vaccine manufacturers and forcing parents to give their children more and more vaccines on an accelerated schedule, often with little or no notice. As an example, we were told our son's vaccinations were up to date at the beginning of the last school year only to be told 8 months later he needed another vaccination or he would not be allowed to continue going to school. Getting a notice from the government saying "do this or else" is hardly a way to build a trusting relationship. And experts not talking openly and freely with those that have concerns forces those with concerns to talk with the "alternate experts" that are willing to fill their heads with their agenda.
The first measles vaccine (according to http://www.historyofvaccines.o...) came in 1960, followed by the mumps and rubella vaccines later in the sixties, and then the first combination MMR vaccine in 1971....
I'm not sure where this page gets its information from, but I know for a fact (from my immunization records) that I was given three separate shots (administered the same day, mind you, but not a single shot containing a combination of the three vaccines) as a child, both for my initial vaccination (1973) and the subsequent boosters (1982). My son (now 8) got the combination MMR vaccine since they no longer manufacture the separate ones.
Clarke did very little writing on robot brains.
Um, I'll have to assume that you weren't around for April, 1968, when the leading AI in popular culture for a long, long, time was introduced in a Kubrick and Clarke screenplay and what probably should have been attributed as a Clarke and Kubrick novel. And a key element of that screenplay was a priority conflict in the AI.
