Estimate: Academic Labs 11 Times More Dangerous Than Industrial Counterparts
Safety is about learning to do things with good technique. Surgeons learn good sterile technique--and many operations are improvisational. Precisely the same thing: If you know what you're doing, you can skillfully and safely handle the unexpected.
The idea that safety in industry is about filling out forms is also false. Unfortunately it's a tale that many academic scientists repeatedly tell themselves, and it helps reinforce the (lazy) status quot. (I do not mean that people working in academic labs are lazy; as others have pointed out, they work too much. I'm saying that as a culture, academia is lazy about safety and messages like this reinforce that.)
In industry, people learn good technique--just like the surgeon. They view safety considerations as a routine part of what they do. If you're a coder, I assume, you annotate your code, or structure it well. (Sorry, it's been decades since I did any significant coding, or had anything to do with it really.) In the lab you use good technique: sterility, controls, safety. It all fits together into the skill set that defines you as a professional and not some brilliant hack.
Ask Slashdot: Is iOS 7 Slow?
Me too, same thing. Improved performance. Same phone: 4S. Maybe it's a 4S thing. Hey, did you notice improved call quality? Whose your carrier?
Ask Slashdot: Is iOS 7 Slow?
My immediate impression, on my 4S, was that it was much snappier. Also, my voice quality went from unacceptable to great. I realize that's almost certainly a coincidence--something happened on my network at the same time, or something--but that was my experience.
As for speed though, no question: My iPhone 4S got faster.
Google Claims User Content In Multiple Products
Many of the posters below are missing the point--which is that the greedy terms of service make a potentially useful service--like Google Docs--useless for any serious purpose. For example, I would like to use Google Docs in an international online publishing venture. But I can't, because of the TOS. Specifically, while for Google Docs section 11.1 is amended in a way that makes it (borerline) acceptable), section 11.2 remains:
>>11.2 You agree that this licence includes a right for Google to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with whom Google has relationships for the provision of syndicated services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services.
(and, yes, they actually misspelled "license" in their terms of service.)
I'm sure they have their reasons, but these terms are unacceptable for my professional use. So, with regret, I don't use it. Assuming that Google has produced this service in the interest of making a profit, they've lost my business.
