The Brains of Men and Women Are 'Wired Differently'

ja Jumping to conclusions (509 comments)

Different wiring for different sexes does not in itself imply genetic predetermination but might as well be a consequence of differences in what challenges grown ups are likely to present to the child. ... Oh! I see Heidi Johansen-Berg says something to that effect as well in the last paragraph - good!

The US funds them to have its bases there. The fifth fleet, for example, is headquartered in Bahrain of all places and would be kicked out the instant the oppressive regime was overturned. Smile and be happy while it lasts.

Google Is Bringing Chrome Remote Desktop App To Android

ja X?? (104 comments)

Actually, the lack of a decent Xserver is what makes Androids so totally unusable to me - but I suppose, since it could be useful, that that's not what they are up to.

Realtime GPU Audio

ja Re:GPU is not that useful for audio (157 comments)

Fortunately, you are terrible wrong! :-) On the GPU you can trivially explore the parallelism of multiple identical channel strips or multiple, polyphonic synth voices. The code to do this can almost be copy/pasted from your favorite on-line DSP resource - the difference being that you'll get 32 of each (assuming the function call is warp aware) rather than one.

1 World Trade Center Becomes the Tallest Building In NYC

ja Re:Support (407 comments)

One question that is completely missing in the discussion is "Why did they attack?" ... I think to most people this is still a deep mystery, it just came out of the blue for no reason at all. Very few see the connect to the (still ongoing) US foreign policy against the peoples of the Middle East.

Afghanistan does not have any training facilities for flying large civil aircraft. Not then and not now. Bin Laden lived there, and - well, that's about it. He lived there.

If you want full civil rights in Israel, yes, you'd have to serve in the army. I believe that you too are well aware of this and deceptively pretending otherwise is just plain foolish!

Israel To Join CERN As First Non-European Member

ja Re:Did South-Africa ... (351 comments)

This is by some complicated ancient accounting where only those in favor of the rulers (ie: Settlers in the territories, but not Palestinians) are allowed to vote, and where even larger parts of the population in the diaspora (ie: Palestinians but not Jews) will be shot on entry. And you will of course have to serve in the Army, which for Palestinians means you must be willing to expel your own relatives if this has not already happened. Yes, it's different, very

President to students: Use Facebook for Propaganda

ja ja writes  |  more than 6 years ago

ja writes "Jerusalem Post reports that Israeli president Shimon Peres is encouraging students to use the social networking site FaceBook more actively to enlighten the World about Zionism. Also mentions that '[i]f the state of Israel had come into being some years before the outbreak of World War II, the Germans would not have been able to do as much damage, because Israel would not have permitted it.'"
