self-driving truck and stormed off to Arizona in a self-driving huff,
Do the cars that pick up the people also storm off in a huff? It would be funny if they also call the passengers "meatbags" and tell them to "bite my shiny metal ass"
"I mean, imagine everyone thinks they have to do 10,000 steps but you are not actually physically capable of doing that, you could actually cause harm or damage by doing so."
Well they can just swing their arm while holding the device like I've seen many people do. They can probably do that from the couch while eating Oreo's too. Problem solved.
Just like planets, species etc.
Ceres and Pluto suggested we call it a dwarf continent.
GM Plans To Build, Test Thousands of Self-Driving Bolts In 2018
I forgot that they had a car named "Bolt" and thought they were taking about the fastener. A bolt that could turn itself and tighten to the proper amount of torque would be pretty cool. Granted, it would probably be prohibitively expensive, and not really make a lot of sense, but cool none the less.
However any thinking that was beyond a "do 'xxx'" task, I got the blank stare and the "well, can you do that?"
A co-worker got shown the door when some women in another building started alleging sexual harassment.
So you tasked them with making porn and your co-worker got fired for sexual harassment?
For example, Heinlein in "Beyond This Horizon" describes a society, where this was done successfully
With all due respect to Heinlein, he's a fantastic writer in my opinion, it's just a story. There are a hell of a lot of variables in the real world. In a story, you only need to focus on what you want to. Life is much messier. You may be able to reproduce the result you are looking for the first time. But it's more likely to be a disaster the first dozen or couple hundred times. Heinlein was much smarter, and more pragmatic, than most of our decision makers are.
Fact remains though - when the call was made he was
1) Not in any way part of the executive branch
2) Not in any way authorized to speak on behalf of the executive branch
And therefore: flagrantly undermining the foreign policy objectives of the sitting president of the united states. Which is a crime and this application of the Logan act would almost certainly pass constitutional muster.
Didn't Nancy Pelosi undermine GWB's foreign policy objective of isolating Syria when she went there in 2007?
Or the 47 republican senators who wrote to Iran in 2015.
According to a memo in 1983 from Victor Chebrikov (head of the KGB) Ted Kennedy attempted to make a deal with Yuri Andropov to help him deal with Reagan if he would help him in the 1984 election.
Henry Ford, Jane Fonda, and many others have been accused of being in violation of the Logan act. I can go on naming possible violations, but it would be silly. The Logan Act is a pointless law from over 200 years ago that no one has ever been convicted of violating. I think there has only ever been one person charged with it, but was never convicted. Hell, the guy it was named after was elected to the senate two years after it was passed into law.
90C in a car? Are you sure you didn't mess up with the conversion?
I doubt he was mistaken. A car parked in the sun when it's 100F(38C) can quickly surpass 170F(77C). There are a lot of places in Texas that get hotter than that.
I didn't see what the outside temperature was in this link was, but at 1:30 in the afternoon the interior temperature was 85C. They managed to bake cookies.
Frankly, I'd rather have police accountability than privacy from having people see my face while I'm in public.
In general I agree with you. However, in the past, I've lived in some very not nice areas. I had the police come to my door several times a year asking if I had witnessed something, or investigating vandals that did similar things to my property as others, or stole the center caps out of the rims on one of my vehicles, etc. Usually I'd invite the officer in to discuss it. It's likely that I'm not the only person this has happened with. I think I'd have been less inclined to allow them in my home had they had body cameras, or even be willing to talk with them.
I'll do it for $10 million (and I'll even provide my own soldering iron from Radio Shack).
I hope it doesn't fail. Building a time machine to get a replacement soldering iron from Radio Shack is going to cost you more than $10 million.
1. if the US Government (contracting agency) changes anything after awarding the bid, cost plus activates. 2. if any other Government (China) changes any procurement procedures, cost plus activates. 3. finally, if an Act of God, War, or other devastation delays fulfillment, cost plus activates.
I don't know anything about cost plus contracts, but of the three things you listed, incompetence/negligence doesn't appear to activate cost plus.
Given that our current President is trying to undo almost everything from the past 30 years of progress, these laws could easily be gone. You can't assume the future will always be at least as bright as it is now.
Most of the really important labor laws are much older than that. Though FMLA was in the last 30 years.
