President can't make laws so he just makes rules?
Sounds like what Hillary has said she'll do about gun control if elected. If Congress won't give her what she wants, well, she'll do it with Executive Orders....
Unfortunately the summary describes a 16 hour week + "additional flexible hours". Beyond that, the only clue is "30 hours per week", which is evenly divisible by five days (or six), but not four.
Hence my comment....
Personally, I've been looking forward to the four day work-week for a long time. Last time we shortened the workweek (from six days per to five) was before my father was born....
I'd be interested in knowing WHY the robot babies failed.
Perhaps because human females are hardwired genetically to like babies?
Actually, this whole notion is from a very old science fiction story. Main characters had to deal with robot baby before they could get a license to have a real one. Very funny story.
But, as it turns out, completely unnecessary, since higher standard of living seems to reduce reproduction rate nicely in the Real World (tm).
USB sticks have been effectively banned on DoD networks. We regularly use CD/DVD media to burn software and patches to then transfer it to the classified networks. The optical drives on the high side are almost always read-only to avoid issues with transport of classified off the servers.
Hmm, 166 users, 71 of whom were known depressed. 70% accuracy means they picked 50 of the depressed people as depressed, and 28 (or 29) of the non-depressed people as depressed.
Given that the national depression rate is 6.7% (take that with a grain of salt), we'd expect to see, based on this test, 32.7% of the population found to be depressed. Of that 32.7%, one in seven would actually be depressed....
Color me less than impressed with this study.
And yet the Netherlands has no problems with flooding despite most of the country being below sea level..
Of course, the Netherlands don't have a 3M km^2 watershed dumping water into them, either. And the Netherlands is smaller than Louisiana alone (by a factor of about 2.5), much less the Mississippi watershed (by a factor of about 80)....
The USA is the country which was in the right place at the right time to dominate everything for the last couple hundred years.
Couple??? No, the USA has dominated for the last century, maybe. In the 19th century, we were mostly a non-entity outside North America (and arguably South America). We didn't really take over as the dominant world power till WW2. Before that, the UK was still the big dog....
Slashdot is a form of social media. So if you are posting with any handle other than "Anonymous Coward" you will need to provide that handle to your friendly neighborhood spy.
Note that I did not use the phrase "gun homicide rate" in descrbing Chicago. There's a reason for that.
Note also that "gun homicide rate" and "crime rate" are not synonymous.
Note, finally, that the 15.1/100K you mention is well over twice the national average....
Where are you at? In most of the US the phone company is restricted from requiring phone service to get DSL. Call your provider and ask for "naked DSL". I know Frontier and CenturyLink offer it in most/all of their territories.
The fraud at the ballot box is out of hand in the US, similar to that of many "third world" countries.
Citation please. I agree that Voter ID might be useful, but I have yet to see credible evidence of enough voter fraud to sway any US election held in the last 20 years. IMO The logistics of in person voter fraud make it very difficult to materially affect a large election. NOW, computer fraud or dishonest vote counters is another matter entirely but not something Voter ID would fix.
Anonymous voting helps prevent vote buying and voter intimidation. If the buyer or intimidater cannot confirm you voted the way they want what is the point?
Didn't you notice OP's "no questions asked"?
If the police are going to run serial numbers, that's going to convince people not to sell their guns to the cops. Which means it'll work like most "gun buy-backs" - they get a lot of crap (like a WW1-era rifle) instead of the guns they want to get (the ones the gang-bangers are using).
The local laws in Chicago are some of the most restrictive in the USA. Basically, it reduces to "no guns for you unless you're politically connected".
And yet, the bad guys still seem to get guns with no real issues. Perhaps because if you're a criminal, you see nothing particularly wrong with breaking the gun laws, but who knows?
To do nothing is to be nothing.
