20-Somethings Think It's OK To Text and Answer Calls In Business Meetings
Being able to sit quietly in an irrelevant meeting isn't actually a particularly useful skill in the rest of life, so I can hardly blame anyone for wanting something to do or some other distraction during them.
You may consider it impolite or disrespectful. I consider it disrespectful to make me waste an hour of my time because you feel the need to show your self-importance by calling unnecessary meetings and forcing people who have no need to go to them to be there.
Showing respect is absolutely a useful skill for the rest of your life. You may think it's beneath you but all you're really showing is the me-first attitude so prevalent in this day and age.

irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, industrial, mining, and
thermoelectric-power generation (fig. 1). Thermoelectric
power was the largest category of water use, followed by
irrigation and public supply

ASUS PQ321Q Monitor Brings Multi-Stream Tiled Displays Forward
Yes grain. Just like when film was used. Even at low ISO with fast prime you will still see grain, especially at 100%.
What does screen size have to do with your "cropping range"? You believe the purpose of a camera is to fill your screen?
If I need an image 1000px wide today, I only need roughly a fourth of an image. But at these resolutions to fill the same space now will require more pixels, giving me less range of choice. And yes I do expect my camera to fill my screen, you'll notice "Full Size/Full Screen" a feature on my websites that allow sharing of images.
People whose goal is to share on "Flickr and Google Plus" don't need DSLRs or 4K displays. People who don't realize that grain is a film characteristic don't either.
Would you prefer I called it noise then? Either way it functions the same from my vantage point and also, I'm sorry but you simply are not in a position to determine what I need or what I don't need. Frankly you sound fairly unfamiliar with photography in general and I am wondering why you bothered to respond?
ASUS PQ321Q Monitor Brings Multi-Stream Tiled Displays Forward
As these become more common it's going to be interesting to see how this affects SLR usage. I'm using a Nikon at 4928x3264 and it seems as screens approach that size I will at least lose some of my cropping range and also when you are viewing images close to 100% grain and other sometimes unavoidable artifacts become more apparent. I'm sure for people who do a lot of printing this will be a minimal issue but for sharing on Flickr and Google Plus this might force some wallets to open sooner rather than later!
Study Finds Fracking Chemicals Didn't Pollute Water
Who picked the site? What was the criteria for selection? A year of monitoring also seems to be pretty short to come to conclusions when we are talking about the most important resource on the planet.
Jackson said the 1,800-foot fracture was very interesting, but also noted it is still a mile from the surface.
Love the lackadaisical attitude.

VLC For iOS Returns On July 19, Rewritten and Fully Open-Sourced
Huh, I was curious what the initial issue was. Was it licensing? Because I thought it was due to duplicate functionality in iOS.
Google Asks Government For More Transparency, Other Groups Push Back Against NSA
I have been thinking about the claims by Facebook and Google that no government agencies have direct access to their servers, and that is likely quite correct.
What they do most likely have, is a tap point on Facebook's and Google's networks which can then snoop on all traffic between their servers and their users and visa versa then ship it off en masse to the NSA for processing and storage... So their statements while technically true, are still intentionally false and misleading.
It's been well known that the government has had these taps on the major phone company networks and the internet backbone for years.
I've been feeling that they are liking arguing semantics. Sure the government doesn't have direct access but a 3rd party does and via perhaps their data the government gets what it wants or something a long those lines.
Med Students Unaware of Their Bias Against Obese Patients
It's not mental illness, it's addiction. Yet, I really don't like that word as it implies a removal of personal responsibility. No, like so many other things, overeating has to do with abuse of our pleasure systems. If we taught people to be self aware enough to recognize when they are engaging in actions that will subvert physiological systems into a habit then they would (hopefully) be able to self limit early on.
To Connect People Securely, Tor Project Seeks New Bridges
