Bleh.. UPS? I'll take Fedex any day over UPS (at least, in my neighborhood).
That didn't take long, a butthurt dweeb down-modded this already. Sorry cupcake, US citizens have been referred to as "Americans" by the rest of the civilized world for well over a century. "America" is not scientifically recognized as a single continent.
There is no shortage of dweebs lately that think "America" is one continent and thereby want to divorce the term from meaning a USA citizen.
I didn't install him. I literally voted for someone not on the ballot. On principle. I didn't like any of the candidates enough to warrant my vote, so I decided to let the rest of the country decide, and let the chips fall where they may. But nonetheless, I voted, and for various congressman too.
Sorry to report that while slashdot customer service was courteous, it was overall unsatisfactory.
Regards first link: How does owning businesses in a country make you a "puppet" of that country's leader? By that logic, Trump was a puppet of Obama too. And a puppet of every leader of every other country in which he has an enterprise.
Regards the second: Calling for an investigation is a process of looking for evidence, not evidence in and of itself.
Just because a republican senator calls for an investigation doesn't mean the guilty verdict is foregone conclusion - and even if he is guilty, just look at how Hillary slithered away from her email investigation, and that did actually turn up evidence.
I think insurance companies for this kind of thing are just a colossally bad idea. Now it positively screams "lucrative!" to the ransomers, as victims will be far more willing to "pay" since it's covered by insurance. The amount of ransom demanded will increase as well.
Instead they should be concerning themselves with better security, training, and backups. That wouldn't have to cost any more than the insurance premium.
Two extremely biased leftist sites with an axe to grind. Would you accept an article from youngconservatives.com or Breitbart as trustworthy?
What in there actually contradicts what SuperKendall said?
And by the way, that's sacrilege!
Well, they could have just boiled the water, but I'm not entirely sure they knew that. They just knew that beer and wine was safer to drink.
They didn't always have the luxury of waiting though.
I think the ACLU or SJW should get involved now.
The SJW..? Is that a new agency?
I think maybe this whining is designed so that the police just can't win.
It's fine for citizens to video pretty much whatever they want and whenever they want, in public; but cops aren't allowed to too? So when the charges of police brutality start flying, the only evidence is a bystander's video that conveniently begins halfway into the altercation, and
No, if you're out in public, you have no expectation of privacy unless it pertains to your personal space. Obviously no one can just walk up to you and look at the contents of your wallet or purse, but whatever actions you take in a public place are public actions.
Human eyes are lenses, human brains are recording devices; but they're not nearly as reliable or objective as electronic ones.
To be fair, the article did point out that coal plants are already built; solar still has a great need for installation and growth, thus a large part of the discrepancy in labor requirements it's still a relatively fledgling industry. What will be interesting to see is how well solar works out once it's established a more dominant presence on the grid. Some of that will depend on how often panels need to be repaired or replaced, but I'd like to see it do well.
Besides, I think that alternate energy has the potential to be to this decade (or the next) what the IT boom and the Internet was for the 1990s, an explosive tech industry which catalyzes huge economic benefits and employment. Not to mention cleaner air.
The thing is, politically, does it matter that he employed this technology? Does this bit of spectacle make his political positions any more valid or attractive? It shouldn't, because that would be incredibly shallow and superficial. It's just flash and bling. People are too easily mesmerized by shiny things. But then again, it works for Hollywood celebrities, so maybe he's on to something.
