That's pretty awful of you stealing somebody's $80,000 SUV and then laughing about it after dumping them in the woods.
Who are you, Tony Soprano?
I wish I had mod points. Nice.
What else is there to say?
President Donald Trump and Congress have said they want to overhaul policies that allow companies to bring employees from overseas to the U.S. But the application deadline for the most controversial visa program is the first week of April, which means new rules have to be in place for that batch of applicants or another year's worth of visas will be handed out under the existing guidelines. The current H-1B visa program has been criticized for hurting American workers and undercutting salaries.
As RTFA, I'm struck that is affects 5.5k marketers (1.5% of the company's workforce) who are not getting the results that their boss is looking for. Ms. Peluso believes that the issue is with employees not being able to effectively work together because they are in different locations (ie their homes). She may very well be right and it's within her authority to bring the employees into the office.
I guess you could argue that this is the thin edge of the wedge - more IBM employees from other areas who are working productively at home could be forced to come into the office but, before that happens, let's wait and see what happens here.
Rather than destroy the contents it would be better to have a separate code that will show photos and videos of granny's 100th birthday.

I guess you could call this a stunt as Dr. Hawking, at 75 and with his health issues would not be considered a likely astronaut but I think it's great that he is given this opportunity.
Too many people have gone (Arthur C. Clarke as one) that fully expected to experience spaceflight during their lives and it's nice to see Dr. Hawking will get that opportunity.
From somebody hoping that one day their ship will come in and get the same experience.
Probably the best solution.
But, could you really be charged with evidence tampering if the prosecution can't prove beforehand there was evidence there in the first place?
I suspect it would be a long and expensive process to find out what the final outcome would be.
Nothing is 100% reflective; some energy will be absorbed, the object and it's coating will heat, start to char and the reflective properties will be lost.
The issue is holding the beam on the target long enough so that the absorbed energy will start to damage the coating and what's underneath. The time required drops as the energy level increases.
How much energy goes into the laser to get the 58kW out? 58kW is just over 78 horsepower, so it's not a huge amount of energy coming out and, at 100% efficiency, it could be driven by a fairly small power source.
Are we talking efficiency on the order of 10%, 1%, 0.1% less?
The question comes down to, can the beam be powered by a couple of car batteries or do we need a nuclear power plant?
TFA immediately made me think of the Arthur C Clarke story in which the "first cries" of the unintentionally created artificial intelligence that arose from the hook up of a world-wide telephone exchange was that every phone around the world rang at the same time.
What will it be for us? All the refrigerator doors on the planet opening at the same time?
Or was Frank Poole killed because HAL thought they were going to unplug the "Mammary Circus" and that was basically the only DVD the three of them could agree on watching?
