Although sometimes it thinks it is.
The problem with the law is not restricting anyone to call themselves engineers but putting this restrictions on real engineers who have diploma from other constituencies. What if they had an international engineering conference in Portland or Corvallis? Should every participant be fined?
I would fuse Lesson #1 and #2 into "No private surfing at work" but I would sound like a very anal person. The only reason it works with me is I actually have no time for that. I dread the day by boss realizes I practically never sit down behind my desk but rather spend time talking to people (this is how I do management tasks). He could have tried to save some space and money on my office :)
Switch to Glonass? What next? Joining the Commonwealth of Independent States?
I still receive sextortion threats based on a throwaway password I used on the websites which quality I respected least (one of them was Yahoo which is the one I believe the password was stolen from). The spams seemed more fun than a threat.
However the new idea of sending out bomb threats shows how stupid those people are. They upped their game from fraud to terrorism with all the expected legal consequences.
First, I do have a printer at work which can be used (and abused) from anywhere on the globe. I know that because I printed a document being in a different city, No password was needed.
Second, even if people are as careless as my admins, the guy could be criminally prosecuted in the USA and possibly in other countries.
"It's not very useful to claim "73 per cent accurate". What they should give is a percentage of false positives and false negatives."
False positives are 100% minus the hit rate (that is 23%). From the x-axis of Figure 2 in the manuscript it is visible that false negative is also close to 25%. I know this from the description on page 11 (search for "false positive").
We need ISS in orbit just to have an argument against the growing flat earth fallacy which claims there is no space. Now everybody can see it by naked eye and even see its silhouette using a small amateur-class telescope.
With no ISS, even more people will believe there is no gravity, stars hang on a glass firmament and the Earth pancake is surrounded by an impenetrable ice wall.
Mac is an American citizen so he will not be most likely extradited. Isn't it unfair that an American may do such things abroad and be practically immune from criminal persecution while the US wants everybody and his dog extradited from all over the world if it feels its interest were at stake?
This is what it is:
Maybe it is supposed to be better than the existing ones due to the quantum thing, but for mow it is two orders of magnitude larger than what is commercially available.
