Do Non-Technical Managers Add Value?
I would give my left one to have your problem, I've been trying to get a kaizan this in place for even 1 iteration, and I can't get any traction. One man's curse is anothers dream. Making it a requirement seems a little harsh, but having the luxury of fixing that annoying thing is priceless

FCC Dodges Pointed Questions On US Broadband Plan
In my rural area I have access to 13 million acres of mostly wild fedral forest and many thousands of private forest (large corporation) within an hours drive, there are some ~10s of thousands of people in the greater (tri - village) area and a good number of these people choose to live in an extreme or often times 'off grid' or at least power only (no TV, well water, some have phone, no garbage, no city services like plowing). we are in a medium growth forest mountainous area so there is NO line of sight for well over half of that population, there is really no hope of getting them all high speed internet access, but I'm not sure that they would even want it.
2 In 3 Misunderstand Gas Mileage; Here's Why
The Guage system is completely intuitive (disclaimer, I shoot black powder smoothbore shotguns) 20 perfect*(pretty good) spheres of lead weighing 1 pound is a 20 guage shotgun. 12 perfect spheres of lead weighing 1 pound is a 12 guage shotgun.

The Worst Products of CES 2010

baugette mode recipe
preheat - bake with convection fan on and 100% duty cycle steam at 500 degrees.
2nd step - stop convection fan, wait 5 minutes, reduce steam cycle to 50%, reduce oven temp to 400
etc etc, it would be different for chibatta, or brioche.

if you've only ever had store bought beef, you have almost certainly never eaten bull. female calves are pushed back into the breeding population, males are castrated, sent to a feed lot, shot with hormones and antibiotics and then ground into hamburger. (I butcher my own beef from my inlaws farm)
