Corporations own Trump too. (in June, Trump got $51 million in donations, and loaned his campaign $3.8 million.... as a loan, he expects donations to pay back those loans)
Until Citizens United is revoked, all candidates have to suck up to corporations to have a chance in elections.
Common man, be nice. I know we're anonymous here, but there's a human on the other side.
true surround sound headset / speakers?
We already have that — binaural recordings work with normal stereo headphones. You only have two ears, so you only need two speakers.
There's something called Dolby Headphone, but all that does is mix 5.1 channels down to 2 channels in a fancy way, and it's essentially a software function that if implemented in the phone, can work with any stereo headphones.
Malaria has been around for tens of thousands of years, so it reached a stable plateau. The risk with a new disease is that it could take too long to understand how it's transmitted and how to prevent transmission.
Quarantine isn't a guarantee, as seen by the two health care workers who contracted Ebola in Texas when caring for a patient.
The summary is misleading. No article mentions extinctions due to climate change. A huge temperature change would cause migration towards the poles, and may cut food supply and kill some people, but not all.
The article that mentions the 10% figure (The Atlantic article) says that a pandemic is the most likely to cause extinction, eg. the 521AD plague killed 13 to 17% of the world's population. But that didn't make it into the sensational summary.
I read the warrant affidavit (https://www.seattleprivacy.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/154-AFFIDAVITCONDOINTERENTWAVEG401PARKPLACECEN.pdf) and they were not just "searching for child porn" but searching for the uploader of a specific file to a specific post on 4chan.
This specificity makes me think that they sincerely thought they could find the uploader of the child porn clip in question, but didn't understand how TOR works, or how exit nodes work, at least.
If you run an exit node, there's the chance that some pedo is going to use it and their actions are going to be stamped with your IP address.
Given the level of technical knowledge required to understand the technologies involved, I can't even chalk this up to incompetence on the part of the law enforcement officers.
Maybe his real name is "Kelvin"?
Yeah, I use three layers: 1) over-ear hearing protection like what chainsaw guys use, 2) in-ear earphones, 3) brown noise or rainstorm sounds, turned up as loud as need be.
I sold my $300 noise-cancelling headphones because they didn't do any better, and were much more fragile and harder to replace. (and I'm not an audiophile, I just wanted the noise-blocking)
