One side-effect of this cracking-down on working by 'gig' by the various governments, is how it may affect your average gigging musician/band playing the local bar/club. If local bars/clubs have to treat bands/musicians as employees,
I think that it only extends to a musician if the musician band ONLY works for one club owner.
Or the musician works for multiple club owners, but all their contracts are through one booking agent and the booking agent sets the prices/compensation.
I think that most musicians playing multiple clubs, etc will continue to be independent contractors. They aren't really in a grey area, unlike Uber drivers or other similar jobs.
And I am sure there are some musicians who are regular W-2 employees in the US - they aren't the ones playing gigs at multiple clubs, they're working for one employer consistently. (ex. DJ that works at a club every night. Or instrumentalist working for a symphony or possibly even a studio. Those are more in that grey-area, and might be employees)
More seriously, the Bay Area no longer looks like a tech hub. I remember in the 90s, when I lived there, wherever I drove around Santa Clara, Milpitas or Sunnyvale, a company that I may have read about or whose ad I may have seen in BYTE or PC Magazine would suddenly pop out of nowhere. That's what would scream out tech to me. If you drove up the Bayshore Freeway near Lawrence Expressway, you could see the S3 headquarters and Microcenter right from the freeway.
Microcenter closed a while ago - they always seemed pretty empty when I went there - I think internet shopping really took it's toll on that type of business and there was already Fry's as an entrenched competitor pretty close by.
I never really noticed S3.
But the building that has KPMG shares that space with Broadcom.
The next tower has CA technologies and then one next to that is Sophos.
And a little farther south-east you can see Intel.
Across the highway from KPMG is Ericsson and (soon) AMD.
Between KPMG and Microcenter are EMC and Intel Security (I think Yahoo was in one of those buildings too a while ago) I'm not sure that those names are actually visible from 101 though.
If you go off on some of the sidestreets near there you see lots and lots of other tech companies. nVidia has big construction a mile away, Apple's spaceship is only a few miles. Those I think are bigger names now. Some are still around that I think were bigger names years ago - like namco or applied materials.
But all in all, I find it still looks very much the tech hub.
The Intel Museum is at 2200 Mission College Blvd., Santa Clara, CA.
It's essentially through the front door of the headquarters building and off to the left.
It has some stuff about Intel, some about semiconductors in general, some about computers.
Some of the displays are somewhat interactive. Others are more typical museum with a group of objects and some text about the objects.
I think the "bunny suit" is something people find interesting. And (hopefully) here's a video clip with the bunny suit in the museum:
"A rig hauling 80,000 lbs is going to have a constant power requirement of about 150HP to maintain 65MPH on flat, level ground. No help from aerodynamics or bearing drag"
That is nonsense.
If there is no drag: then there is no power requirement at all as soon as the car/truck has reached its speed.
He didn't say no drag, he just explicitly removed 2 of the components.
By my calculations using http://ecomodder.com/forum/too... show 62HP needed for
(.0045 is based on lower end of range for truck tires from wikipedia)
100HP or even 150HP is within the range of possible requirements.
I'd expect even significantly more than 150HP needs to be available for when going up a long hill.
But I dont' see why the math doesn't "add up" - even if we use 150HP.
Even with 150HP, and a range (on just battery) of 190miles, the article says "travel up to 1,200 miles with the natural gas range extender"
The point isn't that it doesn't run on fossil fuels (it explicitly does)
The point is that it can run 1200 miles between refueling and do so at much lower fuel costs. 1200 miles would be 18 hours at 65mph; and truck drivers can only drive for 11 hours within a 24 hour period, so that's more than enough from that perspective - and 1200 miles will get you pretty far - enough that you wouldn't have to have the refueling points be completely ubiquitous.

A friend of mine had her eggs frozen because she was going to go through chemo.
She was married, one kid and diagnosed with breast cancer.
Before she started chemo, the doctors told them that there was a chance of infertility afterward.
So she had her eggs frozen (after fertilizing them - apparently they do better that way)
She had a masectomy and chemo.
And now she's had a 2nd kid. (I don't know if they used a frozen egg or not. I don't think there's a polite way to ask that question, and it doesn't matter)
My understanding is that this policy would have helped her pay for the procedures.
I think that a lot of other insurance coverage plans it wouldn't be covered. And instead the family would have to look at how to pay for it out of their pocket.
Can anyone tell us a simple way to check?
Intel has on their website info on the processors.
For example, for yours (i7-4700mq) you would look at:
Or you can look for all products that were "formerly haswell":
how to apply the "disable the broken feature" fix - without installing windows
I would do some searches for updating BIOS from linux - ex:
Or doing a microcode update:
Until there is a chip for sale that really supports TSX I wouldn't expect anyone to be distributing software that uses it. So I wouldn't be too worried about it yet.
Though, one thing I don't get about this challenge - they're using they want 2kVA output, but then demanding 50W/in^3 with a max size of 40in^3, meaning you have to provide 2000W.
What is it you don't get?
Requirements are >=50W/in^3 and <= 40in^3.
I would expect some of the entrants will exceed those requirements - doing more W/in^3 and/or less space.
You killed my father, prepare to die.
Oh - wait, you've got 7 fingers and not 6?
Oh, OK then, nevermind.
