Well put, girlintraining. Use a camera, and put the officer's face and actions in front of people who can personally shame him (or her) into remorse.
My small vow: The next time I see someone stopped by numerous police cars, I am going to stop and take a few pictures. The police try to keep us from seeing their actions, on the street, but we can look. Be the mindful observer.
WEIRD FACT ABOUT PICTURES: I have often seen, in a picture or video, brutality that was happening right under my nose...because it's often quick and quiet. TAKE A PICTURE. It will show more than the eye can see.
Police are supposed to be trained officers. They are being provoked by taunts? Throw those goddamn police out of their jobs, with a black mark on their records. What you say is (trolling?) bullshit. I have seen numerous videos of peaceful people blindsided by police with pepper spray and bludgeons. Overwhelming force, yet the police are provoked by taunts? You live in a world of hypocrisy and denial, previous poster.
If you want a "user experience" with someone second-guessing you and tossing extra keywords into every search, pfft, google it.
I occasionally try new search engines ( Google remained my favorite ) yet recently switched, due to proof that one is better... for me. I'm a scientist. I was convinced by the results of the game, Three Engine Monte, over at http://blekko.com/
" search term
I was impressed by how often I picked the Blekko search results link. Most often, the more relevant listing was unearthed by Blekko. I found better information with Blekko. I was mightily impressed, and switched. Unless you want local listings every search on a movie title, (which still seems intrusive to me), in which case stick with the big brother who gives you priority paid listings.
Grasshopper, if you are not trying new search engines, regularly, you are <strike>eating search results pablum</strike> missing out on some awesome information.
Amazing paid travel and meeting of fine minds, the freedom to know first hand the world Dr. Hawking lives in, the ability to say whatever you think to whoever you want -- ZOUNDS! all this and money, too?
Focus on finances
I would take this job in a heartbeat, and figure out the wires, hardware, and software interface as I go. It's obviously custom, and I m able to pickup where the former person left off. Credentials--Scientist who is comfortable setting up complicated lab equiment, learning to run and troubleshoot HPLC and PCR (piece of cake) and microarras, surf along the growing information network, as new replaces old. Experienced coder on-the-fly Perl and Java Python concatanations.
Better question is this, "Sir: Is there a person leaving who will train me?"
Forget about the money. Take the job.
The author of the original article had "once overseen an IT department as a former dean of the College of Psychology and Human Services."
Right there at the top of the linked article is the reason IT is perceived as having a personality problem. IT is managed by people incompetent to manage IT. Being aloof is the only way to fend off uneducated management.
I worked in the industry, as She who understood enough IT to talk respectfully to IT. You should not tell them what to do You describe a problem-and listen to solutions brainstorming. Unfortunately, it is an inevitable case of management not-knowing-what-they-don't-know, and perceiving the perfectly reasonable behavior of IT as these ridiculous (I'm sorry, but they are) ridiculous personality profiles.
IT gentlemen and ladies are fun-loving, overworked, camaraderie-driven people. They are not ! aloof (perhaps a trace shy, or apt to speak Jargon) except when aloof is needed to prevent management from not-knowing all over the place.
Personality profile written by an IT manager? Conflict. Bias.
I never thought of that! MightyMartian has a valid point that valuable, difficult-to-manufacture long chain hydrocarbons are being squandered to produce combustion.
That's the same way I feel about sequestering gold. This non-tarnish metal is an extremely valuable manufacturing commodity. And diamonds, the hardest substance known to man, are another stupidly sequestered resource.
Homo sapiens are dingbat dumb.
This baffling story is raw inspiration. The suicide of one's online self is a serious event. Do you suppose, if Mark began again, he would create another space of vision and beauty? Of course. A new vision.
He was (?) singularly poised at a wrinkle-in-time to become Our Voice. Yet, our wins are our losses. We lose the ability to hear the muse. Sometimes one cannot even see the new task, when there is clamor (hands vibrate and wave) loud eddies that distract from the quiet voice of curiosity.
Mark will find the muse again, find his new task, and may each of us ( me least of all ) seek a location where we can hear the muse most clearly.
Love, attention, bliss.
