Looks like the USAC is trying to get bribes. Need an undercover police investigation.
Uber is one company that has objective data on performance. So why not use it?
If supporters of a party directly call someone and up front says they are calling for the party, then can try to persuade people. That is telephone canvassing. It is when another organisation tries to do it while pretending to be independent that breaks the rules. Were the GMB up front about who was calling and why?
Why is Google being fined for contempt of court when they have a pending appeal? Normally appeals put a stay on all decisions until the matter is finally settled?
Why not just use DVB-T2, like in most of Europe? Why does the USA have to be different?
Not even Iris Robinson?
Looking at Metro and Handelsbank.
Didn't he calculate the ages of everyone mentioned in the bible, add them up and come up with 4000 years B.C.?
Odd that the headmaster was in a Church of England primary school, as that church supports evolution, as do the Catholics.
Isn't Sellafield in Copeland Borough Council's area?
Many of these rural areas are full of Republican voters. So this plan will get support from rural Republican congressmen.
Hang on, if the neural network runs on the phone it doesn't have to send anything to a server.
In 2013 I compared Google and Bing's geolocation of thousands of house addresses in Oxford. Bing couldn't locate half of them, Google got all but 3%. So I got NationBuilder to change its default search and geolocation engine for the UK.
If you really liked to see us, you wouldn't charge so much.
So that people make dud bombs that just burn instead of explode because they couldn't calculate the stoichiometric mixture (plus a bit extra oxidiser) that any 3rd former chemistry pupil could work out, or many people in Northern Ireland pubs.
They could have picked any group that people hate. But having found one that targeted thousands of people they used that as an example, set up a small targeted Facebook post and wrote about it.
A thorough research project would have compared the number of people who self-identify as haters of someone. But to prove there is a problem with Facebook, you just need one example.
So the only reason to object to the choice of example is when the objector also hates that group.
As for search terms in Facebook employer fields, take a look at the number of people who type search queries in to the Google Android App Facebook page. There is even a video singing about those search terms.
So what has the state of California got against rail freight? Locked containers on a train are safer than cars.
> Am I the only one here who thought his story writing dreadful, ill-constructed, predictable drivel only saved from utter uselessness by the Niven collaboration?
He wasn't anywhere as good as Arthur C. Clarke or the recently deceased Brian Aldiss. But his stories were good readable yarns.
> And the only one who found Chaos Manor a sink of ill-informed, name-dropping posturing?
You probably are the only one. Most of us found Chaos Manor as the light relief in a serious magazine we had to pay a lot of money for in the newsagents that stocked US imports.
The IPCC is tens of thousands of scientists, not politicians. They work on investigating different aspects of the problem, then a group of a few hundred synthesise the research into a range of models. 97% of scientists agree with the consensus coming out of that meta-analysis. There is rational disagreement about what to do to mitigate the effects of climate change. But it is no longer rational to dispute the greenhouse effect (as any gardener would tell you) or that it is the direct and indirect consequences of human activity that is the overwhelming contributor to the accumulation of CO2 and CH4 in the atmosphere.
When Jerry Pournelle wrote about it, the science was less clear cut. In 2017 it is as close to a certainty that science gets. And in some of his novels, terraforming relied on creating an atmosphere to retain heat.
Some time ago I switched to using Insync to synchronise selected folders on my PC to Google Drive. It works much better than the rudimentary downloadable client that Google supplies. And Insync works under Windows, OSX and Linux.
Who cares about the ins and outs of people in storage companies? It is boring. Food is much more interesting - as is drink.
as in South Africa, where a British PR company has been caught disseminating fake news to reracialise politics in South Africa.
Let's make professional lying (by PR flacks, journalists and politicians) an imprisonable offence.
It was part of my M.Sc. at Kingston Polytechnic in 1988. Even then it wasn't new. By the 1990s there were simple systems to apply ID3 to your data. One of my students built a system to diagnose congenital dislocation of the hip in two days.
It is doing it at a large scale, and with more neural network layers, that is new.
Sea Shepherd should buy a submarine to shadow the whaling boats. Disguise it as a whale.
This month's Wired has an article on producing large diamonds by chemical vapour deposition. Purer than mined diamonds. But each diamond takes 20 min. to grow.
Still a way to go to match the I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again fish puns sketch.
When they announce their emigration as they hand the country back to native Americans.
If all of the EU, Canada and other countries can have data protection laws, why not the USA?
Ask Congress to pass a law similar to the GDPR and require both private companies and government agencies to stick to it. Then there won't be arguments trying to stretch contract law and the 4th amendment to cover data collection and use.
The judge did better, "The Parties are directed to consummate the Settlement in accordance with its terms."
There are companies that have solved the natural language analysis of recognising what someone types in (e.g. velmai.com) - but not the problem of how to generate a situationally relevant answer, that gives you what you need to know rather than what you asked for.
I thought bail bonds are returnable when he finally surrenders at the court. However, the fees to a bail bondsman to get the loan of the amount are not. At least if Janet Evanovich's explanations in her books are accurate.
In Northern Ireland, the local government paid for rural broadband using a mixture of companies. Where fixed lines didn't reach, there were companies setting up wireless links to groups of houses. And in the most remote areas they used satellite Internet.
Now they have to do it all again, since bandwidth needs have gone up, but they can still use the same mix of companies and technologies.
Try typing in "Brexit means brexit" and see the tears.
But then people used it to stream videos.
Those wanting to get rid of Flash have forgotten its origins, the things it was good at from the beginning.
This is what you can do while waiting for a cassette tape to load!
Do you mean Susan, the granddaughter of Death?
I often plug odd USB sticks in my Linux computer. No problems so far. No autorun, but obviously I don't start executables, and can do an ls -l to see what is executable.
And here is where you find out about it:
Fine the Register picture editor an hour's pay every time he includes a picture of a gavel.
Come on, the best SF on TV was and ever will be Doctor Who.
No. 2 is The Sparticle Mystery
This should have been a blank article. IT storage is boring. Nothing is fit to print.
data.gov.uk is the place to go to get open data. It looks like they opened up their data on their users and made that freely available as well. It works in Estonia, where if anyone in government looks at your data, you get notified of who did and why.
Of course DUPers have used the Internet - to find old Sunday World photos of Sammy Wilson.
http://192.168.0.1/ gets you to the superhub control panel.
They write down the ballot numbers so that if there is a legal challenge, they can do a thorough check. For example, if someone comes in and is told they have already voted, the ballot papers of the impersonators can be removed. Obviously they don't do that unless there is a lot of impersonation. There are other kinds of fraud where a matching number check is needed, although most would be picked up at the verification count.
After a time to allow for legal challenges, the ballot papers are destroyed.
I remember Expansys being the only place to get things not yet sold in the UK market. They would import batches.
There are still good margins to be had in importing Chinese mobile phones. I bought a 4G phone sent from China for £50 (a Bluboo). I cannot find an equivalent in the UK for less than £250.
However, since it is so easy to order from Chinese suppliers, even one-off on eBay, why pay Expansys to do the importing? And their b2b business will have to compete with Alibaba, relying on servicing income.
We know that the Scottish and Northern Irish rural payments systems were much simpler than the England and Wales system. They had fewer categories and fewer rules. So it should be easier to build a working system to a simpler specification.
Somehow the private contractors managed to mess that up.
There was a regulation on how long something had to be sold at a higher price before being used as a from price on a discount ticket in a retailer. Shops that broke the law were prosecuted by the Trading Standards officers. I don't know if it still exists, but it seems to be ignored by retailers. It could be worth reporting them to the local trading standards department as well as the ASA.
The reporter was Ben Jacobs from the Guardian. It all took place in public. See the report on Boing Boing. Why do you make up lies about the assault, Daedalus?
And in any case, two wrongs don't make a right. Just because someone is close to you or even shouting, doesn't give you the right to hit them. It is time politicians with too much testosterone were cured the same way a farmer deals with an agressive bull.
Simple solution. Expel all the immigrants and their descendants. Send them back to Europe. Keep America for the native Americans.
Isn't Planet 9 an operating system? Or is that plan 9?
