BofA is horrible. My wife went to cash a check given to her, and they wanted to charge us a fee to cash it because we aren't members of their retched institution even though the check was drawn from them.
There's a deeply unsavory element to casting police as assault rifle-toting warriors, one that in the wake of Ferguson - and its inevitable successors - video game companies would do well to remember and be a little more careful with.
Yes, because they are. I completely agree. I don't know much about this particular game, however I think we need a game that exemplifies their concerns.
We should have a FPS game where you play a regular, average citizen. Perhaps ones that is a passerby to a peaceful protest happening at a local university. As you pass, you see armored police tanks approaching, with kevlar covered officers exiting armed with M16s and grenades. Someone pulls out a cell phone to take a photo, and bullets start flying. You duck as you hear explosions and gunfire rip through the formally peaceful protest. People are running in fear while being gunned down in the back.
Afterwards the police, having done their civic duty for the day, hop back in their tanks and roll away from the newly formed red pond. Off to the next disturbance...
It's obvious Tektronix is just lazy. They don't want to go through the hassle of ordering different sized ROM chips for the different model features (so someone can't flash better firmware on to a cheaper one). Ideally with different electrical characteristics, so you can't just swap it out.
I have an old Radio Shack DMM (probably 10 years old or more now). It's mostly yellow, with a grey front. Except for that, I rarely see any yellow multimeters anymore that aren't Fluke. Got to Harbor Freight, Fry's or RS now, and all you see are grey, black, and red ones. No yellow. Like the original guy from Sparkfun, I also associate yellow with multimeters in general (and red now), but not Fluke specifically.
I've used Fluke before, and they're nice, but I won't buy one for hobbyist work.
Some people are allergic to certain vaccines. Just like how some people are allergic to bees. That alone is one reason everyone who can, should vaccinate. It protects those who cannot via herd immunity. Unlike the idiots who choose not to vaccinate, these people, like sadly your niece, medically cannot receive the vaccines.
I have to agree. I'm in software development, and both I and at least one other peer don't have advanced college degrees. I only have an AS (in network admin), and he has none at all. We do just fine. Although I did get started by working at said company as an intern. College education may not be worthwhile, but internships most definitely are. Higher education should be focused more on that, IMO.
I emailed her, this is her reply (received about a week ago):
Thank you for your letter expressing your support for reforming National Security Agency (NSA) programs. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue, and welcome the opportunity to respond.
First, please be assured that the NSA does not conduct mass surveillance on U.S. citizens. Its mission is to collect foreign signals intelligence to detect foreign national security threats. For your convenience, a summary of the NSA's authorities under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) is available on the agency's website or at http://tinyurl.com/NSA-FISA.
Please know that I support measures to improve oversight of U.S. intelligence programs and to make them more transparent to the public. On October 31, 2013, I introduced the "FISA Improvements Act" (S. 1631), which would require court review when the NSA call records database is queried, and mandate a series of limitations on how the records can be obtained, stored, and used. It would also authorize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to designate outside "amici curiae," or "friends of the court," to provide independent perspectives and assist the Court in reviewing matters that present a novel or significant interpretation of law.
Additionally, on November 5, 2013, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which I chair, approved the "Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014" (S. 1681), which would strengthen existing protections that allow whistleblowers in the Intelligence Community to bring their concerns directly to the attention of Congress, inspectors general, and Intelligence Community leaders. The bill would also require the Department of Justice to inform the Congressional intelligence committees of all Office of Legal Counsel opinions regarding intelligence activities, and extend the charter of the Public Interest Declassification Board, which promotes public access to a thorough record of U.S. national security decisions and activities.
Finally, as Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I have called for a full review of all U.S. intelligence programs. For your convenience, I have included an opinion piece I authored in the San Francisco Chronicle on November 2, 2013 that further outlines proposals that I support.
Again, thank you for writing. Please know that as Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I take seriously my responsibility to ensure that national security programs honor the privacy and Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. citizens. I will certainly keep your concerns in mind as Congress considers legislation to reform NSA programs. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.
Nubribullet, LLC is the owner of the well-known trademark and trade name Nutribullet. As you are no doubt aware, Nutribullet is a trademark used to identify products, services, activities and events related to Nutribullet, LLC.
1) Well-known, I doubt it. I didn't know about it. Granted that is a small selection size. 2) They couldn't even spell the company name correct.
I think the people in her (my) state just don't care.
They see a name they recognize and pick it.
I'm starting to think letting ignorant people vote is worse than not letting them.
Forget this 'right to vote' garbage. You need to show at least some semblance of intelligent political thought before being allowed to vote. Not just, "Should I check the top box, or the bottom?"
Otherwise you end up with this situation.
Anyway to answer the article's question: She's blind, deaf, and dumb. That's how.
I just hope this situation finally gets her thrown out of office. Wishful thinking, I know...
When Star Trek: Armada came out, I got a demo disk from a gaming magazine then.
I played the demo (two missions) far more than 20 times. Then again I was like 10 or 12, so I wouldn't have been able to buy the game anyway. I didn't care, the demo was fun enough for me back then.
I bought the sequel when it came out, then the original when it was re-released by another company.
