Ale To the Chief: White House Releases Beer Recipe
the first time they made this, they posted pics of the guys putting a whole spruce tree into the tank.
there are also links on that page to the other "ales of the revolution."
Poll Finds Americans Think the TSA Is 'Doing a Good Job'
probably a connection... i just did the same thing and had an identical experience. japan -> SFO -> east coast u.s.
in most airports international arrivals and domestic departures are in different areas. so you arrive internationally, go through u.s. customs and immigration, leave the "secure area," go to your connecting domestic flight, and welcome to security theatre.
i opted out of the scanners (as i always have) which pissed off my husband, but we had enough time to make the connecting flight and i guess i'm just stubborn enough to point out when theatre is, in fact, theatre. the GP was right... at least in japan, there was no taking your shoes off, no irradiating scanners, no obsession with liquids. just the old-style luggage scanners and metal detectors. way faster, way more dignity. and as so many other posters have pointed out, just as secure. *sigh*
Microsoft Patent Aims To Curb Obnoxious Employee Behavior
If this is generally applied to a workspace, I'm confident that the bosses will be the first to be red flagged! Maybe this can help reducing the amount of psychopathic leadership?
nah. this will be configured to reward standard psychopathic, extroverted, "leadership" behaviours. there's no way that those on top are ever going to use something that tells them they shouldn't be on top.
Ocean Currents Proposed As Cause of Magnetic Field
Astronomy is the naming of the stars, Astrology should rightfully be the logical study of the stars
actually, "astronomy" is the law (or regulating) of the stars. as opposed, for example, to anonymous. "nomos" is law, "onyma" is name (someday, someone will explain to me why the romans decided that the upsilon in greek ought to be transliterated as "y"). so "astronomy" isn't quite as mis-named as it appears.
How Apple Kept the iPhone Secret
it may be worth commenting here that Cingular doesn't cripple their bluetooth handsets. between us, my husband and i have had 4 bluetooth-capable handsets from cingular (a SonyEricsson T610, two Nokia 6820s, and a Palm Treo 650) and bluetooth on them has been used for the following:
1. to transfer contacts, ringtones, and photos phone-to-phone
2. to transfer contacts, ringtones, and photos phone-to-computer (both windows and mac) and back.
3. as a frontrow-style remote for a powerbook
4. email and web apps from powerbook-to-treo
5. as a dial-up modem for the powerbook
6. paired with a bluetooth headset
so i wouldn't doubt that the iPhone will he capable of pairing with a bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse. or if it can't, it (probably) won't be because Cingular crippled the bluetooth.
