Actually, buses DO clock a lot of miles/kilometers.
Apparently we disagree about what a lot of miles is. An 18-wheeler will do, say, 8 hours at 70 mph; that's a long way. 150mi is something that a current electric car can do. A bus can have a higher percentage of it's mass devoted to the batteries. So, range is no problem whatsoever in this scenario (looping). A long range run could easily be too far, but that's not most of them.
Yes, the battery will weigh more than a engine + fuel. You'd have to do the math to determine if it is favorable, if you include efficiency, cost of electrical, maintenance, cost of gas, regen, etc.
The casinos know who has problems, just like they know they tamper with the air to make people feel more euphoric
How do they tamper with the air? Do they increase the level of oxygen? That's insidious! It would also make cigarettes burn faster, assuming people were allowed to smoke indoors.
Only, people are allowed to smoke indoors, as long as it is in a casino. See http://www.riverfronttimes.com... for example. (Note: not true of all locations and casinos; however, in general, casinos are able to carve out special exemptions for themselves.)
I interview people and help hire them for my projects (technical lead, not hiring manager). I would prefer github. 1. It means that you're more 'up to date'; 2. it's just easier to use. Honestly though, don't put your software links on your resume unless it is _good_. Having a crappy piece of software on there is concerning, since then you are advertising crap, and you clearly are proud of your crap. Don't want that. You have a reasonable readme for it, it has to build with a script, has to have code comments, be well organized, not have a zillion issues.
You want to impress a developer? Point out where you contributed to a team effort. Find a feature request in a known open source project and implement it, and have it accepted. Or fix a bug, and make a pull request. Then, be able to explain why it fit into the overall effort. If you do that, someone will think to themselves, 'hey, this person makes something other people think is worthwhile, and they worked in a group, and solved a real problem.'
Multiple companies work by providing free software, advertise that they produce it, provide services for it, etc. For example, cmake is produced, supported, and advertised by Kitware (see: https://cmake.org/). It's great advertising for them. (Note, I am not associated with Kitware, but I know some of the developers.)
There is a possible a business model for a company to create the software that the person wants and release it for free and use that to advertise their services. And there is a distinct possibility that the person has come up with an idea that the company has not and would be interested in. So, how would that person make the idea known to companies looking for ideas?
gotta love idiots like you. you contradict someone's claim and post a link defending their claim.
The claim was that there is no such things a fraudulent sex (or 'rape by fraud'). The link indicates that there wasn't, but that the law was changed that made it illegal. The article says: 'The decision angered victims advocates and state lawmakers, who changed the archaic law in September 2013 to protect "unmarried women who are defrauded into having sex with a person," the district attorney's office said.'
So, it doesn't work for you. What if you were paid a reasonable amount? what if you could set it so that only riders with 4.9/5.0 for cleanliness could ride in it? Either the business model is going to work (using other people's cars) or not, and that depends on the flexiblity / price / benefits. And if it doesn't work with Uber, the try Lyft, or one of the other competitors that is going to pop up.
In this case taxi companies are clearly paying their drivers more and treating them better. When making a decision like this, I look solely at how the people with the least bargaining power get treated, and taxis are clearly ahead of Uber in that regard.
Clearly paying more? Where? I haven't seen evidence of this generally. What I have seen is that it depends greatly upon the cost of medallions, the presence or absence of competition, local regulations, etc. I have not seen that taxi drivers have any more bargaining power than uber drivers. at least Uber drivers can do Lyft or one of the other services at the drop of a hat.
