ALL of them!
MWAHAHAHAHAH! (Evil Thunder!!)
Allegedly the US are already testing it on their X-37B unmanned space-plane, and the Chinese have a version on Tiangong-2.
Why would they lift a pressurized water reactor into orbit to push clippy around??
thing is bigger than a cubesat, especially with the power source and the radiator...
The upvote train is now arriving at the station.
They have MOMENTUM!
I don't know, but the dimensional thing is not really magic sauce to explain stuff (much as quantum mechanics is not magic sauce for consciousness)
I remember vaguely that 4 dimensions (not 3) is a magic number as some very special properties become apparent in topology or quantum field theory or both, can't remember... but unless there is strong evidence, 4 it shall remain.
This doesn't preclude one from declaring other degrees of freedom (e.g. energy) as a dimension, but you cannot actually travel along those.
the 60 millinewtons per kilowatt that is produced by the best ion drives. It sounds tiny, because it is, however it's still twice as powerful as the thrust produced by solar sails.
This depends completely on the size of the solar sail and its distance to the light source and the type of light. Same as for those panels, really.
Additionally, the solar panels will ALSO work as solar sail. This will be interesting, which one will win, the drive or the panels?
Plus, once you have subtracted the momentum from the energy (well .... you know .... ) you are still left with a shitload of surplus energy that you have to dump into space. You will need large radiator fins. Now you have a photon-drive of infrared light, too!
Plus, I don't see why there is an assumption that there is a linear relationship between "momentum generated (into a preferred direction)" and "energy needed". Might as well be logarithmic for example. We are in unicorn land, all bets are off. The law of increasing entropy has gone overboard, next someone will use this to pull NP into P.
A tall order explaining how "energy" is transformed into *"momentum" while this particular way of Nature's working is not readily apparent all around us, or rips big holes of inconsistency into the fabric of logic itself.
It's been argued repeatedly that “things” aren't going to get decent security in their own right, because they're small and stupid.
There is a special FEMA trailer for people who argue this kind of stuff.
Indeed, this just would mean these devices were trying to occupy an economic niche that is not acceptable. Same as a factory that can only exist if it can dump the toxic leftovers into the nearest river.
Either legislate this away or fix this.
Since BearSSL has to be small, Pornin has decided to ignore malloc() and dynamic allocation entirely: “the whole of BearSSL requires only memcpy(), memmove(), memcmp() and strlen()” from the underlying C library, Pornin says.
Somebody has taken up lessons from the Misra C manual? GOOD!
I don't see anything about subverting the "checks & balances" (at least whatever remains of those as the uniparty establishment has played around and dismantled them as needed either in the name of "progressivism" or to "protect us from the terrorists".
Maybe you are watching news from Turkey?
Not my kind of economic program, but at least times are interesting again.
The boiling frog euthanasia of the Hillary/Bushbama camp may yet be escaped!
WE NEED TO BUILD A WALL!
It's the same in the language area, really.
How many manhours and lives are currently burnt on the utterly unsecure and unmanageable WOMBAT and square wheel that is Node.js? We will be carrying the technical debt with us for decades.
Well, we do get flashy mobile-enabled websites with colorful hexagons (these are à la mode for some reason) which will be torn down tomorrow...
An ASS ACCUSER, professionally looking for sex scandals?
Hmmm....you might be on to something!
"Of COURSE duck tape like the one we use on that device near the water cooler will survive a high-intensity neutron flux for a few hours... why do you ask?"
It is difficult to say what exactly a "negative mass" would be.
Possibly, when it comes into contact with normal mass, NOTHING remains (because negative mass implies negative energy, so you don't even get the angry photons of matter/antimatter encounters).
In Newtonian terms, one could make sense of the counterdirectional force vector, but in General Relativity, this is not so clear. Will geodesics through spacetime become hyperbolic?
What a concoction of half-baked rumormongering, "industry" soundbites and dark mutterings.
And then this:
While Trump has encouraged Russian hackers to attack government systems
No he didn't.
Can we now talk about Hillary Clinton's evident link to satanism? 665 Gbps? More like 666 Gbps!
Wasn't Bixby that rather unhinged moustache-wearing charver friend of the main (H injecting) protagonist in "Trainspotting"?
Ah! A Gentleman or Lady well versed in the classics! I daresay, a rare occurrence nowadays.
> National Socialism
But this naming is actually correct!
It is german-nationalistic, plus a fascistic style of socialism. The state looks out for you, from gradle to grave. Not exactly defender of pre-Bismarckian german liberalism.
Yes, these would have had to sit on the left in the Reichstag. Unfortunately that side was occupied by the internationalists and people making eyes at Stalin, which was anathema.
Nothing that a little helping of "gun culture" cannot solve...
Black Churches are Parliament Buildings, now?
No, that show was 9/11. It's been some time.
History always repeats as farce. And Hillary is not Hitler but she will wreck things tremendously.
> Only, the MSM will just sent it back marked "Not interested."
I am sure the international press will be glad to open the package.
Are you really suggesting it is "unseemly" for Obama to publicly support Clinton?
Yes I fscking do.
If Michelle O. cries before the mic that she is "shaken to her core" by Trump's boorish behaviour, that's ok. But Mister O. is jetting around on taxpayer dime and his job title commands that he stay a bit aloof.
> Staggering abuse of power from a civil servant at such a sensitive time.
It's not like the President himself could be admired emitting recommendations as to his own successor.
It was written by Pepe the Deplorable Frog!
I think he has just sent the message that if that should happen, a fat,disagreeable infodump may hit the MSM.
The FBI is not Hoover's child for naught.
I'm watching this election trainwreck while listening to Beethoven.
Well, the BDS movement has been declared "hate speech" in La France.
... so, um, err... YES!!!
> "those who sow dissention"
Go all Jeanne Darc on him and boute les anglais hors de France!
If this is true, the European Court of Human Rights might have to say something about this.
If SSID naming is now considered "terrorism", then so will be farting in the street if one of the Pig Disgusting French Politicians is nearby, very soon.
(Of some interest: Why you might have heard some French politicians calling Isis 'Daesh')

Classroom attendants are perfectly groomed (do they impose a mandatory coiffeur visit before the office entry turnstyle can be, er, turned?), youthful, somewhat smug, all the males metrosexual with a ridiculous early-21s-centuryt beard and clearly everyone genetically enhanced and purified.
Oh Brave New World!
I imagine the photo was taken just as a question was being asked about the historical significance of his fordship, Mustapha Mond.
So you are a leech on society who survives only because money printing (aka stealth wealth transfer) is in overdrive and who has no redeeming skills whatsoever?
My only satisfaction is that you will be left to fend for yourself in the wilderness where armed survivors from inner cities roam when the zombie apocalypse comes.
Yes, but actually no.
Welcome to "digital"
"On Twitter, candidates can listen to citizens' feedback directly, while they also have the opportunity to respond using a platform whose laconic conversational structure allows for short and concise messages that enable strategic ambiguity and reduce the danger of loss of content control. Interactive use has been shown to have benefits for both sides, with politicians standing to especially benefit by being generally seen more positively when they interact with the public than when they don't."
Is this some kind of Sokal-style hoax? Can ANYONE tell me what is being said here? How is Twitter a magic sauce for interacting with citizens? It's an utterly confusing sub-200 character messaging tool for the hyperactivity disorder generation (it may be useful to post one's score in some game or something or list the ingredients of the latest pizẑa one had, om nom nom!). If one wants to communicate one can actually take the time to write an argumentative piece. Possibly with diagrams, timelines, properly aligned links to further information etc. It helps to think things through. Moreover, the person the receiving end may also get a chance to find out that the position is not rational at all but just carried along by ideology, incomprehension of human action and "Hope!". Structured communication is important, especially in the age of new laws and directives based on stress-inducing medja output by reporters barely able to think, read or write but ready to suck up to persons of influence to become "insiders".
tl;dr for the citizen? Well, WE HAVE A PROBLEM. Maybe things should slow down, maybe a lot of crap should be thrown overboard, maybe one should stop pining for "democracy" and look into having a working "republic" (On this, Waking Up in Hillary Clinton’s America: Wall Street in the Saddle is a good read although the author totally doesn't understand the wreckage that Keynesian policies, so beloved by left and right alike, are the real problem), maybe a whole lot of civil servants and politicians should be thrown out into the cold world to fend for themselves, God knows the top-heavy system is just about to collapse in on itself.
Twitter is not for engaging the citizen, it's for virtue-signaling, posturing and publicly stating one's herd position: "Against Racism" / "Against Global Warming" / "Against Rape On Campus" / "Against BDS" / "For More Free Money" / "For Women's Rights in Lybia" / "Against Global Warming" / "X Lives Matter" / and similar bullshit.
...but there is bound to be a few failures.
It seems the pixel patterns just kick the neural network in exactly the right way (Fist of the North Star style -- Disclaimer: Extreme Violence) so that it ends up in another classification region with no particular reason instead of the correct region into which the other features of the image would lead it according to how it has been "trained". NNs are stupid like that.
See also Is AlphaGo Really Such a Big Deal? (formerly titled Why AlphaGo is Really Such a Big Deal), where we read (in the vicinity of the shaggy dog example image):
In actual fact, our existing understanding of neural networks is very poor in important ways. For example, a 2014 paper described certain “adversarial examples” which can be used to fool neural networks. The authors began their work with a neural network that was extremely good at recognizing images. It seemed like a classic triumph of using neural networks to capture pattern-recognition ability. But what they showed is that it’s possible to fool the network by changing images in tiny ways. For instance, with the images below, the network classified the image on the left correctly, but when researchers added to it the tiny perturbations seen in the center image, the network misclassified the apparently indistinguishable resulting image on the right.
I'm not from America, but I do think that baggy pants do merit a good stop-and.frisk.
Unfortunately this trick only works for the particular network trained by the researchers. Or does it?
If humans have similar blind spots then .....

> the skills that employers want
Employers want skills that either don't exist, that they are unable and unwilling to pay for or that are too specialized to be taught at uni.
As an example, we are looking for "developers" that according to the "must have" feature list demands someone who has worked with practically everything since the eighties and who has more qualifications than his boss.
I'm a fan of this idea!
Not much to do with cheapskateness than with long roll-out times for relevant standards and appropriately certified gear.
ACARS exists and has been used in this precise case. I understand the main unit was switched off (burnt out? sabotaged?). A secondary unit was on but was just doing "pings". These pings are the signals we are talking about here.
I am not sure whether ACARS would carry on-board GPS information but it definitely carries telemetry.
There is also FAMS which is coming online.

Those who believe in one theory usually believe in others. The theories typically view large organizations as tightly united in secret evil, as unitary globs of malevolence, a bit like the evil spirits of primitive societies, and able to keep dark secrets even though though large numbers, often of ordinary employees, would have to know of the plot. For example, one version of the attack on the Pentagon holds that a missile (type unspecified) was fired by a Navy ship (ship unspecified). This means that the entire crew, several hundred ordinary sailors–not CIA operatives or Thirty-Third Degree Masons–as well as higher-ups would quickly know that they had just blown up the Pentagon. Yet it never leaked out.
This is true of almost all conspiracy theories: We must regard substantial populations of unruly individuals, all thinking different things, liberals, conservatives, rebels, herd-followers, Christians, Jews, agnostics, atheists, moral, immoral, amoral, thoughtful, thoughtless, sophisticated, or rubes–as reliably being willing to hush up such things as mass murder. This is the stuff of dreams.
It's like we are in that Ridley Scott movie.
The vacuum is basically a solid, layered material of various "fields" (in particular, the gravitational and electromagnetic fields), and a superconductor for the color force. On top of that it carries the stupendously large "quantum reality", at least at "small amount of bits". Ain't nothing fun about that.
