I totally agree. Where I live in Switzerland, there are no shoulders and bikes ride in the road and are not allowed on sidewalks.
This seems like a category error to me.
"Hey, cars have wheels, bikes have wheels, therefore bikes and cars should use the same space"
Instead the categorization in my mind could be:
"Hey, pedestrians and bikes are almost the same mass, almost the same size, and much closer in speed, maybe they should share infrastructure instead."
Unintended collision of bikes and pedestrians are much much less likely to result in death than of bikes and cars (and trucks).
If the problem is that sidewalk infrastructure is not good for bikes, fix the infrastructure, it will benefit people in wheelchairs, ECVs and people pushing strollers.
I too bought one last week, and I am very happy with it so far. Uncharted 4 is fantastic. If you've played Assassin's Creed before, the controls and game play are somewhat similar. FIFA 17 is outstanding, as well. I'm also looking forward to trying out the PS Vue to see if it's a good replacement for DirecTV.
The main complaint in the summary is not that someone is calling out Google, it is that Oracle is pretending to be a grassroots organization instead of Oracle just standing up and calling out google.
And further, these fake grassroots organizations are harmful in the sense that they break down confidence and participation in real grass roots organizations. People get cynical and just assume any grassroots org is just a front for some giant evil corporation.
Typing bees are uncommon, but a lot of fun and still go on for the harlequin creature, "... a journal sure to be unconventional in today's overwhelmingly digital age, and, at the same time, very much in touch with a nostalgia for an earlier era, when the factories of pittsburgh and detroit were still bumpin' and steel was in. with a circle of friends that spans from los angeles to ann arbor to new york, every single journal is hand typed on high quality paper.
typing bees are a fun, communal experience, in which friends and friends of friends of harlequin creature come together around a collection of old and aging typewriters, to bang out the beautiful content of this entirely handmade journal. "
I hope to see you at the next one!
As a very introverted person who almost borders on agoraphobic I found both of the local maker spaces welcoming and comfortable spaces.
I am also a real nerd/geek sloth who gets excited about things most people do not care one bit about and have no clue about.
The very first time I saw a meeting at one of the local maker spaces, it was almost life changing. For the first time in my life I saw 50 people who were actually like me. I didn't know other people like me even existed.
All I can say is: if you think you might have the slightest interest in a maker space or maker community, go check it out, like the article says, I have found them to be the most welcoming and non judgmental community I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of.
It is actually pretty rational to believe in God because, why not?
Which god? What happens if you believe in the wrong one and the real god ends up super pissed off? For all you know, the god you believe in might be an ex of the real god.
You might very well be worse off than if you had believed in no god.
Pascals Wager has been a discredited reason for believing in a god for a long time now.
RE: Shared monitization of the ad rev, great idea. I'd like to see it work. The only example I know of is a gone now service called ZenZoo that did this.
It sort of devolved into a multi level marketing thing with people trying to get other people to sign up so their share of ad rev would go up and you had log in a certain number of times a month or something.
Anyway, would be worth look up if anyone is thinking of trying this. I'd be in on an advertising, subtle, share.
Faith without evidence is not always toxic. It depends on what that faith is in. Point to me a devout Buddhist who is somehow toxic. or one who has ever existed.
The tao that can be tar(1)ed is not the entire Tao. The path that can be specified is not the Full Path.
