"The zero to sixty time is 9.9 seconds, making it one of the worst accelerating cars sold today."
Only test car drivers and street racers do 0-60. I also own (lease) a Leaf and everything the poster says is true. Its a great car.

top Are Bankers Paid Too Much? Are Technology CEOs?
'Deserve' and 'Fairness' are imaginary concepts. People get paid what they negotiate. Business people understand this and this is why they get such 'unfair' compensation that they clearly don't 'deserve'. If you want to paid what you want, instead of what you 'deserve' or what is 'fair', learn to negotiate or get an agent to negotiate on your behalf.

top Cuban Video Game Recreates Revolutionary History
It should include the Bay of Pigs battle. You start off a counter-revolutionary stooge of the US, foolishly believing the US will support your invasion of Cuba. You land your boat, but are surprised by the brave soldiers of the revolution. You use the radio to call in air support. The cutscene plays showing the corrupt playboy american president ignoring your call in favor of spending time with his hollywood movie star girlfriend. You futilely fight on, but the end comes for you. If you survive long enough, you experience a jail cell slide for a few seconds, but regards of your outcome, then a suitably patriotic cutscene plays showing the deliriously happy people of cuba celebrating there new freedom.

Clearly he cherry-picked the investments for his IRA that he knew (ensured) would do extremely well. If you would already financially comfortable and had access to the selection of investment opportunities available to Bain Capital, you would do the same thing. Put the best investments in a guaranteed tax deferred shelter to stave off paying taxes. Put the rest in your personal investment portfolio that you pay taxes on (and deduct losses on) every year.

'Tesla has the unique distinction of being the only automaker to actually ask us to increase our targets under zero emission rules,' said Ryan McCarthy, the science and technology policy advisor to the chair of the California Air Resources Board.

top Toyota Abandons Plans For All-Electric Vehicle Rollout
The real solution is fast recharge & higher capacity batteries, not phone/laptop-esque fantasies about swapping batteries. You don't swap a gas tank to 'recharge' it, so why do expect to swap a battery pack that will drive a car hundreds of miles?
I own a Nissan Leaf and it quick charges in 15 min from half full and 30 min near empty. The idea of swapping a couple hundred pound high current battery is dumb.

Since we can't mod anything higher than 5, I'm just going to say this: Most discussions about a story only have 1 truly useful response that indicate the person gets it and can explain it to someone else. Your post is the winner for this thread. Congrats!

I watched these two videos in there entirety, it is obvious that the author (if not the creator) is someone inside the department. The dialogue is a series of inside jokes that must be hilarious to someone inside the department, but only moderately funny to an outsider like me.

top National Academies Release Over 4,000 Free Science Books
If you are doing 'research' that needs to reference previous public studies, this is great news. (If you are associated with a university or large institution you probably already had access it).
This is not the place for discovering how something works (hint: try wikipedia), this is a place for discovering how we use something and what it means for the public.
top Cisco Accused of Orchestrating Engineer's Arrest
Cisco does separate releases into two groups: Technology ("T") Train which includes new features. And "mainline" which includes only bug fixes.
You can open a TAC case w/o a support contract, provided your equipment is under warranty. Our company does so on new equipment, before it is added to the contact (annual renewal). To do this, you must call them.
Cisco doesn't charge for software updates that based on security vulnerabilities. (If you don't have a contract, you must call them.)
Writing this from memory, since I'm too lazy to look up the references.
top Teacher Suspended Over Blog About Students
"Beautiful Snowflakes" - its a reference to the belief that we are unique individuals, just like snowflakes. Rationally, of course, that isn't the case. Personalities, backgrounds, and other observable/measurable traits can be classified into several neat categories and dealt with using common techniques.
Snowflakes are not unique either.
I'm sorry, but you are the only one here seeing racism...
