Not solar output falling 60%, which would lead to completely frozen Earth, but solar activity, i.e. the 11 year sunspot cycle. Predicting levels near or at those found during the Maunder minimum. This does imply some reduced level of solar output.
I was a CS undergrad and never used the Plato system for structured learning, but played many an enjoyable hour in the basement of the CS building on a Plato terminal playing Empire. Was the best Star Trek game back in the day. Fantastic game for its day, and very fun after spending uncounted hours hacking some assigned programming task into shape.
Just as we shouldn't and wouldn't tolerate someone who actively promotes that miscegenation laws are a good thing, we shouldn't tolerate a homophobic bigot like this jerk. Our society has moved beyond this. Don't let the door hit you in the arse, buddy.
Much like the psychic who never seems to be able to hit the lottery numbers and become wealthy, Olivia appears to have none of the qualities of which she purports to teach, besides being a charlatan that appeals to the pointy haired bosses of the world looking for that silver bullet.
Given that the reports of the Snowden NSA documents indicate that the NSA worked with willing private sector companies, why should anyone believe that this is nothing more than a public relations push by Google? I think Google is trying to restore trust by appearing to be doing something while in fact being just as open and cooperative with the NSA as it has always been. I will believe that there is some pushback by private companies when there are actual public (not secret) court cases brought by the government to force them to do something. Until then I call shenanigans.
