Maths is easier to understand when applied to real life situations. I had a similar experience learning spreadsheets - at school they seemed irrelevant, in work they're essential.
But there is a problem. We learn things more easily when we are younger; and real life scenarios are a bit thin on the ground for your average 5 year old. So the scenarios used for teaching algebra needs to relate to the imaginations of the students. Where teachers can't adapt, the children will have more problems.
"misleading at best"? What sort of ridiculous statement is that? Your phrase is "indicative of an idiot at best".
Reframing a debate is a perfectly standard and correct method for analysing a set of rules. I doubt Mike is realistically expecting the language of the laws to be changed, but this method reveals the clear imbalance in favour of copyright holders. Therefore, interpretation of the laws will naturally tend to favour them too, and so not favour the general community.
there's a weird bit that says..."A web page is provided having a link to a sister site. The sister site facilitates simplified navigation. Pages from the sister site are served responsive to actuation of the sister site link. In one embodiment, the sister site includes matrix pages to permit matrix navigation."
So is the patent for a device or web design standard? If it's a device, it's implying that the device creates a secondary site for navigation. I don't know of any browsers that create new webpages - they just reformat existing ones. And when a website has a parallel mobile site, the device or method doesn't need to do anything.
So, if that's in the introduction, how on earth does it not get thrown out before the rest of the document is even read?
Yup, atheism is lawless. Completely deregulated. We all know those pesky commies love deregulation. They deregulated the banks and look where that got us. And they just want to reduces taxes and let every man make decisions for himself.
I think this is just a newspaper finding a story out of nothing. Indeed, the coverage the guy has got from going to the newspaper is far greater than anything his sign would have done. Clearly the police have had a word with him, suggesting there was a complaint, but they didn't see anything really worth acting on, so didn't.
It's the reason why signs on churches in the UK are more moderate too. There's always a balancing line, as with all laws, but I'd far rather not be bombarded with religion than enforce a free speech law that does nothing but allow haters to hate.
