This is bogus. It is completely a question of semantics.
I know dozens of software engineers and sound engineers who advertise their services in Oregon without a license.
This is for a specific type of "engineering" related to surveying.
I know there is a huge "who is an engineer" debate going back probably to the Usenet days but this case is bullshit semantics and could easily get thrown out...it's definitely legal trolling from that Engineering org.
this is cool...
this is real, valuable R&D research
imho, companies spend way too much on marketing and not enough on R&D
The sun shines on every dog's ass every once in awhile.
Sergey Brin wasn't born here, Elon Musk wasn't born here, Steve Jobs' father wasn't born here. On and on and on. At some point you will realize that immigrants and their families make a huge contribution to making the US tech industry the best and the biggest in the world.
Brin, Musk, and Jobs' father are not relevant examples here.
Brin and Musk came from money, they were set for life before they were born.
This is not about company founders it is about removing policies that give unfair advantage to corporations and to foreign workers.
H1-B gives foreign workers and unfair advantage over US workers
Obama and progressives were headed towards this move...I am anti-Trump and anti-GOP but when they do things that progressives are also trying to do, I am happy. I give Trump no respect for this...it doesn't change one iota of his failure...
I'm happy this is happening.
Not sure Trump's logic behind this policy, and I am by nature anti-GOP and anti-Trump, but if they want to do something that helps US workers I will take it.
I give no credit to Trump, none...this is the right policy and anyone should do it.
Obama was heading towards changing the H1-B as well.
Too bad Trump doesn't follow Obama's policies on tech more often.
"That's just Jobs being a prick again.
Flash died because it was an inferior standard for the internet.
It was bloated, unsecure, proprietary, slow, and required too many updates.
In fact, analyzing Flash's design is a good way to learn what *not* to do at every development point.
Steve Jobs may have been a 'prick' but not when he was banning flash from his devices. It was simply good sense.
Democrats on the hand, want everyone except for the rich to be able to avoid all negative consequences
This is fsking ridiculous, and only a Trump-supporter type person would put forth such a warped, bullshit comment.
Democrats do not, in any way shape or form, want to keep people from negative consequences.
Interesting comments on this thread, thanks. I've learned a lot.
fwiw, I have a network engineering background and Hadoop always seemed like a clusterfsk to me...good to learn the actual story isn't far from my impressions.
One guys "crap" is another guys entertainment.
Just because taste is subjective doesn't mean we can't agree on an evaluation of a film.
Consensus says Batman V Superman was a shit film. That's a relevant fact.
Just because you are a snowflake doesn't render near-unanimous disdain isn't relevant.
Any way you define consensus, it's fairly known that the film was garbage.
I'm not saying Rotten Tomatoes is a good measure or that all critics hated BvS...that's not it at all.
I am rejecting the notion that consensus is irrelevant because everyone has a unique perspective and opinion.
Why do companies, particularly Google in this case, remove basic options and features in software as if it is costing them money.
Google particular seems to shut down small-mid size projects that can be incredibly useful and profitable.
1. Google Movie Showtimes...this was great, it was a nationwide very accurate movie showtime page that was a feature on Google...it didn't require much maintenance once it was already built. Also, they still have to have staff working on movie results...except they now use a Netflix-like side scroller that requires a user to click to get more info.
2. Google Wave...it could have been Slack. Slack is exactly Google Wave only with a polished interface. How much is Slack valued at right now again?
great info thanks!!!
So what are we going to do about it? Point the finger of blame? Or defend ourselves? Your choice.
Both of course.
How can you defend yourself if you don't know what is attacking you?
Proper defense necessitates "pointing the finger of blame"...aka identifying the cause of the problem.
Fortunately we already know: Pharmaceutical companies make drugs abusable on purpose and incentivize doctors to prescribe them.
Democrats have been pushing for more pharma regulations for years, Repubicans opposing them.
Republicans have fought over and over to make it easy for these abusable drugs to get FDA approval.
Oxyconin is a perfect example, read up:
"In 2006, Giuliani acted as the lead counsel and lead spokesmen for Bracewell & Giuliani client Purdue Pharma, the makers of OxyContin, during their negotiations with federal prosecutors over charges that the pharmaceutical company misled the public about OxyContin's addictive properties. The agreement reached resulted in Purdue Pharma and some of its executives paying $634.5 million in fines"
Pharmaceutical companies that do this and the doctors who enable them are absolute scum.
Good example of why the private sector needs regulation.
that definition is entirely too broad and doesn't address the question were discussing
