>You do kn ow the term 2 spirit is an old term right ?
I might like to see some evidence dating back before somebody in a social sciences dept decided that they could prove they were more woke by inventing it.
I would also like to see the number of people who had previously felt excluded from the clinic because their label wasn't included and whether the money spent on the ads could have been spent on more staff at the centre.
>Native Americans have long held the concept of more than two genders.l
But what about those who have the concept of an irrational number of genders, don't they get a label ?
That would be a tremendously lucrative domain because all your users would have to replace .gay with .LGT then LGBT then LGBTQ then LGBTQI then LGBTQI2
The sex health clinic here at the university has just put up posters everywhere saying it now supports "2 spirit" people in addition to the previous range of acronyms. I don't know if this has helped anyone ho felt excluded from LGBTQI but it has meant a lot of money for the ad agency
Back when we were being sold 4G the arguement was that it allowed X mb/s on each channel and you could have 256 channels, so a phone could be built that could do 256X mb/s ( if you didn't mind a phone the size of a brick with 30second battery life ) turned into 4G = 256X mb/s
If you think the purpose was to give companies more ways to bill, to make money from people and government...
I live in Canada and we got smart meters because when it is sunny in California they can sell our organic-eco-green electricity to California for more than we are paying retail.
Of course somehow they will manage to make a loss on charging us more and selling it - but it's the thought that counts.
Because the "years of testing" for many of these systems (shuttle/Saturn V) consist of hope and prayer and then defining any fault that didn't actually kill you last time as "non-critical"
It's a little like running across the road drunk and blindfolded 10 times and getting away with it - so that is obviously the safe way to do it, while using a crossing is untried.
>P.S My brother also owns are large number of RORO ferries. I would be please to make these available for another £100 million
That's your problem. Only companies who own zero RORO ferries are eligible for £100 million government contracts
The GSO satelites don't provide navigation in themselves. the problem with GSO, apart from it being a jolly long way away and so needing rather beefy signals, is that the satelites are all in a line so the position solution is rather crap.
This proposal, like WAIS and EGNOS, simply rebroadcast extra information (time and correction) sent from the ground, to all the users of the regular system to improve their position. Not to mention confidence in the position, the original driver for WAIS was the FAA wanting to replace ground beacons but wanting aircraft to have some way of detecting GSP errors
You can do a much better job sending corrections from the ground with more locality, but the advantage of GSO is that a single satelite broadcast can cover a big chunk of the continent.
Unfortunately Johnny foreigner tends to object to you installing transmitters around his capital city immediately before you bomb it.
So it becomes necessary to make the vans rather more robust (with armour and tracks and big guns).
Once you have gained sufficient on-the-ground control to install the e-loran system at your target it seems rather churlish to then drop precision guided munitions on it.
You forgot the page each employee gets for their own internal company blog where they are encouraged to "share" about their work
So your git status window is mixed in with update announcements from some HR idiot in des-Moines blogging about their cat.
>Because IBM was a lifetime employer
Things are different now.
If I move to work in Flint Mi, I am stuck with you, I have to be very sure of the future to put down roots in a one job town. If I'm in SF or NY, or Austin/Portland/Seattle I can job switch every 18 months for a 25% raise or if I don't like the coffee.
IBM also did this in the days when only the husband worked. I take the job in Idaho what does my wife do? Whereas in NY/SF/etc we can both get a job.
>both in property costs and salary costs,
Same reason that NY didn't need to make a deal.
Come to Queens and have a local market of a million programmers or open your new AWS development office in des Moines, and see how much more than $45K/job it costs you to recruit and lure programmers away from the coasts.
You need somewhere for the sand to go otherwise it just falls back down, SLRs have double sided sticky tape next to the sensor. You can't really do that in the open.
Although now we know more about the amount of dust and the nature of the wind it might be worth considering the aerodynamics to generate dust shedding vortexes on the panels. Although this might mean SPOILERS
As an even older non-Nasa IR astronomer. The original SIRTF was Shuttle Infrared Telescope facility and was the idea that the telescope would be mounted in the cargo bay of the Space Shuttle and be used there, by a visiting astronomer for the few days of a mission and then returned. Since Space Shuttles would fly as often and as cheaply as a South Western flight this would make sense.
An original proposal I saw for the Hubble Space Telescope had it manned by 2 astronauts who would operate the telescope, develop photograph plates, etc.
ps. The only thing less surprising than NASA's "issues" with getting anything built is the identical farce ESA had in their own part in Hubble
>Are they going to fit EEGs next?
No because then they wouldn't be able to monitor time in brain dead meetings
Following their latest little tantrum when they stopped paying contractors I'm surprised they can get any to work for them, at least without a 25% hike in rates
>chances of a conflict between the US and any EU members during the lifetime of Cisco equipment is pretty small.
Shooty war no, trade war - less small
Might it be in the interest of a patriotic American intelligence agency that Boeing got all of Airbus's sales leads in advance, or had access to the cell phones of the negotiators in the next round of agricultural quotas.
Or it might be worth a Stuxnet type attack to shut down a gas pipeline from Russia to make sure Europe relies on the Saudis more than the Putins
