Comment Re:Violence or discrimination? (Score 2) 434

Stating specifically what they are concerned with in this particular case doesn't state that they aren't also concerned with other behaviors if they see them. They mentioned the specific behaviors they found problematic in this case.

However, by all means, if you see advertisers on this network engaging in hate speech against majority groups, you should bring it to their attention.

Comment Trump and his supporters should DEMAND a recount. (Score 1) 1321

They're certain he won fair and square and keep on saying there's a mandate for him, right?

If they're smart, they'll insist on a recount so that they can remove any doubt about the legitimacy of this election.

If they're actually interested in democracy, they'll want to make sure that everything is above board.

I actually don't know why we don't automatically recount after an election, period, if only to make sure we got something this important correct.

You don't have to wonder - just look at migration to the US in the 18th and 19th centuries.

My grandfather came here from a farm in Mongolia in 1906, alone, at the age of 12, and found himself in New York City. That might as well have been going 500 years into the future, just he did it by boat rather than time machine. Given the difficulties at the time as well, there was no going back.

People did it all the time back then, and still kind of do today, though arguably globalization has made it substantially less jarring. Some fail, some merely survive, and some manage to thrive.

Comment Block It (Score 3, Informative) 60

The Feds should block this one if it ever comes close to being attempted. We have an absolute dearth of competition as it stands now. I looked at moving from Time Warner for my internet and found AT&T is the only option in my area. TW is okay, but overpriced and I have never heard a good thing about AT&T. Allow the two to combine and I get the worst of both worlds.

Journal Journal: Kapla: Spirals

Just building stuff, sometimes continuing the following week: Week 1 Week 2

The booklet had a spiral which took some time to figure out. Basically, 2 pieces in the middle, and 1 on each side of it, which makes it look really cool, and more importantly, supports the turned pieces. They do a slow turn though.

"i buy cars that make me happy and will be fun to drive. All I'm looking for is what is the best can I can afford to enjoy driving for the money I can spend....gas mileage, I don't really even look at..."

Just because you don't doesn't mean all of us don't.

Gas mileage was one of my top criteria for choosing a car. I bought a car that advertised 27 mpg city, 37 highway, combined 30 mpg. I get around 32 mpg combined, or 35 when I am driving to maximize gas mileage. Overall, I have dropped my gas expenditures 100 dollars per month (roughly) for a car that was under $14,000.

So yes, many people like me do use it as a criterion for their car purchase.

Submission + - Malibu Media stay lifted, motion to quash denied

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: In the federal court for the Eastern District of New York, where all Malibu Media cases have been stayed for the past year, the Court has lifted the stay and denied the motion to quash in the lead case, thus permitting all 84 cases to move forward. In his 28-page decision (PDF), Magistrate Judge Steven I. Locke accepted the representations of Malibu's expert, one Michael Patzer from a company called Excipio, that in detecting BitTorrent infringement he relies on "direct detection" rather than "indirect detection", and that it is "not possible" for there to be misidentification.

Comment Re:In the U.S., why isn't this obsolete by now? (Score 1) 129

Failure to register a foreign birth with the State Department risks the citizenship not being recognized if it's not done before the child's 18th birthday. Depending on the citizenship laws of the nation of birth and the parents, this places a risk of the child becoming stateless upon his or her 18th birthday.
