The U.S. minimum wage should be
That doesn't work that way, you just invite corruption. Some countries try paying their politicians very low wages (China for example), but that just doesn't work.
Should the Start of Chinese New Year Be a Federal Holiday?
Except of course if the employee wants to rest during the holiday, for some petty reason like the fact that all his family is free this day. The whole point of these holidays is to remove the choice from the employer.
Details of Chinese Spacecraft's Asteroid Encounter
And when launching the probe, they changed the orbit of the Earth ! Why is it that no one showed us the calculations proving it is safe ?!
Android Botnet Infects 1 Million Plus Phones
Chinese users often have no choice, as Google Play is often not present in the phone. Manually installing it is quite complicated.
All New Homes In China Must Have Fiber Optic Internet Connections

Newspaper That Published Gun-Owners List Hires Armed Guards
Read more about the way World War II set in motion. Hitler had the people's support, an armed citizenry would have changed nothing.
Saudi Arabia Implements Electronic Tracking System For Women
That's not true, except maybe for some government officials and other activities "involving the national security" (which can be pretty vast and arbitrary in China). Regular citizens do not need this exit visa and can leave the country whenever they want (it is the entry visa to any other country which can be hard to get).
DuckDuckGo - Is Google Playing Fair?
No, when you are on www.duckduckgo.com, you show the list of search engines by clicking the small arrow, you see "Add DuckDuckGo" at the bottom, you click it and you are done. Admittedly, that's two clicks.

Scientists Speak Out Against Wasting Helium In Balloons
That's right, because at the end, they still have the house.
Three Mile Island Shuts Down After Pump Failure
You are right and I sure hope they are running like GP says they are. If you have backup pumps, of course you do not run them like the others. You shouldn't forget about them for twenty years hoping they will just wake up when needed, but running them full-time would be nuts.
No Opt-Out For Ads On New Kindle Fires
So because it is worse elsewhere we shouldn't say anything ? An ad on a bus may be bigger and more distracting than an ad on a Kindle, but I have much less power over the bus company than over the device I bought myself.
And to answer your question: I can't drive or walk without seeing ads. And it does bother me.
Chinese Students Say They Are Being Forced To Build Your Next iPhone
That's the reason half the population lives in towns, because most of them were forcibly moved to be become a ready source of labor.
You got it backward. People want to go to cities for any kind of job because life in the countryside sucks so much. The Chinese government is very careful about this and has basically set up an internal passport to control movement from countryside to city and province to province. People still move but they have less rights than real urban residents.
The democratic alternative is India, where people also go to the cities and also don't have much rights ...

50% losses is much too high. A normal network in a developed country would be around 20%, and that is including all water losses (i.e., undermetering, illegal water use, etc.). Only physical losses represent a real waste of resource and these should not be more than 10-15%.
