Frequency measurements must surely be in Beats per Apple.
"The laws are there to protect you and your work from exploitation that you don’t agree with, by somebody much more powerful – such as a record company or Google."
Except that if you ever want to get paid for anything you are forced to assign your copyright to ... somebody much more powerful - such as a record company or Google.
Of course, once you've assigned the rights over - you are stuffed and she is right - the copyright used that way is then an instrument of suppression and a barrier...
"Removed by the moderator"?? After few days of the post sitting here and not harming anyone?
What did I say such that it became an offence???
Yep! And cheers to that!
Not all is shit, thankfully. Try Monarch Trail's Skye or the latest Beardfish album... Not bad at all.
"Philae, which apparently does all the science, as being male while the female Rossetta is merely there in a support role."
How about men working their tits off, doing all the hard work, while women stand in safe distance, giving them orders?
Oh, c'mon, stop flirting, you two!
This is a serious forum - not a dating site! :D
Did you actually read the article or only the title?
Sliders? Pah! Those are rockers!
Well, at least some of them...
At work and, once that happens, their working relationship becomes tinted with personal aspects.
Anyone claiming it doesn't happen is either in denial or an idiot.
However, the remedy to this is not in a single-sex environment but in dealing with the particular couple as and when that happens. What specifically should be done depends on the individuals and the circumstances. Transfer one to a different lab, dismiss both, or let things remain unchanged? - these are the usual managerial choices and they haven't changed for good 100s of years. They work and they don't need reinventing the wheel.
I'm saying all this as someone who has a [very happy] personal experience with all 3 "things" as well as with having to "solve" the problem - in an office, rather than in a lab, admittedly, though.
"How do they know there are algae in the crater?"
They don't. They were only sure about at least one alga being there...
CAT scans, MRI - are they primitive savages there? Did anybody call Bones??
What's the point of that?
There is an old joke about a Russian coming back from a trip to London and saying to his friend: "hey, look - I've got this tie on Oxford Street for 50 quid, not bad, ah?" And the friend replying: "Vasiliy, you're such a schmuck - you could have bought exactly the same tie, just round the corner, for 150!"
That happened to him while surrounded by that mass of podgy, saggy, unhealthy looking male flesh wearing ridiculous helmets?
"downloading all our metadata."
Surely, you mean "meatdata"?
I, for one, don't think this is some kind of an underhand manipulation. Sounds a pretty straightforward proposition to parents - buy a second kindle for your child and we will try to make it more enticing for the kid to read books on it. Fairly honest, as far as marketing attempts go and would be a win-win if works.
In my case, my kids still prefer multi-screen dead-tree readers for books, so it won't be an option for me just yet...
Graham's eyes will challenge him.
Reading on an e-ink screen is by far superior than doing it on an LCD...
It is a pleasure for people who like music. Those who take music as a source of rithmic background noise to accompany whatever else is it they've happened to be doing - might as well like the new "service". Poor sods :-P
Can anyone enlighten me?
Well, basically, that means the difference is so miniscule as to be irrelevant. They are talking about an improvement in test scores by 3% or 4% (absolute) for the lowest scoring 25% of pupils even in the case where there may be a vast gap between the good and bad scoring pupils' results.
Let's say Johnny Aintgood scored 40% in a test whilst being allowed to use his smartphone for underage-drink-sex. Well, the same Johnny would have scored maybe 43%-44% with the ban.
Wow, there's at least 17 minutes of that crap?? What a waste of bandwidth and space...
Any "researchers" who talk about rap and hip hop as of a category of music disqualify themselves from being called musical experts.
And so it comes as no surprise that they have totally missed the revival of progressive music since the first decade of this century.
That was described in a fair bit of detail by Robert Heinlein in Waldo, ages ago...
What next - Magic, Inc.?
Looking at these people - so smug, as if they've built the Gay Deceiver...
OK, I know, that's enough already... :-)
When you look into all the scaremongering claims about the dangers of AIs and the doom of humanity and stuff - it all boils down to fear of an inferior half-arsed AI given too much power than that of a superior super-intelligent AI which is just so much better than humans.
So, it's really the fear of us, inept humans, making a machine too stupid to coexist with us willingly. Meh.
Look at the Avengers: TAOU - it's the manifestation of that fear. An existential threat - a robot with an AI so dumb you could make a Hollywood movie out of it...
Ah, what, rounded corners?
They are holding 'em 'rong! Duh!
Ah, the downvotes are rolling in!

"More little fanbois jumping on the bed!"
I think you are being too idealistic about this whole thing. From what I can see, and I'm sure you will find proof to it if you really dig deep into the local politics - these protests are more about how to split the contents of the "brown envelopes" rather than about some profound religious and cultural issues.
There will be some protests, then the local chief gets a small present, a new car and a promise and, suddenly, it's peace and love, peace and love again.
This is ALWAYS like that in such "disputes" and the more remote the area is, the surer you can be about it.
The Greenie haxx0rs, on the other hand - they simply got the wrong end of the stick, as they usually do.
But maybe these Greenies should go to the nearest lava tube and protest there first. Clearly, hot lava kills more bugs and crawlies than a few boffins with their coffee mugs.
With any luck the Volcano gods will arrange a little surge in the tube and turn the Greenies crispy as well...
Hmm, still waiting for AndyS to respond...
And enjoying the downvotes for having the audacity to ask questions(!), in the meantime! :-)
So, what do you think IS wrong with HFT then? And how is market "stabilisation" going to benefit anyone?
From the BBC: "The statement continued: "By allegedly placing multiple, simultaneous, large-volume sell orders at different price points - a technique known as 'layering' - Sarao created the appearance of substantial supply in the market."
This I cannot quite understand. To place a sell order which you don't want filled you must put it above the market (because if you place it below the market, you will get filled immediately and won't be able to withdraw). Then you cancel it if the market prints higher and closer to your number. That can only drive the prices up IMHO.
So, what's happened to the mouse then?
But the one at 2 o'clock on that picture - most certainly an exclamation point. On a hatch, obviously.
Abandon hope, he who enters... Etc.etc.
"SCADA environments with components that can cause serious trouble tend to have an isolated, wholly independent ESD (Emergency ShutDown) segment which you cannot touch from the outside:"
Yeah! Tell that to the Eyeranians with their nukular cetrifugues...
The presence of LCD displays, software buttons and dials obviously unconnected to any physical switches behind them, crosses any washing machine off my shopping list even before I look at the price tag.
An iron that needs a smartphone to change its settings? Hmm, how much you'll pay me to get it off your hands?
So, that Freeman's prank with Magnusson's microwave did cause the resonance cascade after all!
Wasn't he playing in the same band as Imma-Nu-eel Cunt? No, that can't be right....
The only solution is to transport a spare RBMK core from Russia to the Falklands, set it off there and let it sink into the crust. If timed right, it will hit the Fukushima ones head on and cancel the oscillations.
Unfortunately, as Luis Sancho warned on many occasions, such energetic collisions may lead to creation of runaway mini black holes, which will doom us all.
All of the mentioned are musical Zulu Tango Deltas, anyway... Zero Talent Detected.
But your apostrophe - is it relativistically rrr'ed-shifted?
Even so, I believe it will still be "Boom! And yooouuu'rrre out!" for an observer on board...
If yes, then how did they fail to notice the bloody big shields usually carried in front of relativistic spaceships?
If no, then The Songs of Distant Earth (1986) by Arthur C Clarke might be a good point to start...
It's exactly how they were selling their wonderful BD menues that could be overlaid over a running movie. Really, is that what I'd want? Seeing a menu while the film is running behind it? I guess that shows how much they valued the quality of the movies they were going to punt...
Yep. And had we stayed on GMT it will have gone back to 5 hours in October anyway.
The consolation of course is that in that case we could blame the clueless Americans! :-)
Except the Americans are already on the summer time. They just switch over 3 weeks earlier than we here.
When you give away control over the things in your house to someone else.
Internet of fucking things, right...
Of how corruption endangers the future of everyone. Except, of course, corruption only ever happens in Russia and never here or in any countries on today's friendly list...
