Personally, I think another solution here would be to strenthen the school science requirements and start teaching it earlier as they do in Russia, China, Japan, and some other countries. Teaching something like algebra at an earlier age (in former Soviet Union algebra was being taught starting at grade 4 (10-yr olds)) would be far more beneficial. Younger minds seem to be able to conceptually understand things much bettert than hormone-ravaged teenagers.
This is ridiculous. There's no conflict of interest here. The judge has expressed an opinion. It is understood that judges have personal opinions, in fact they happen to share them during trials and decisions all the time. The job consists of making impartially decisions regarding the legal merits of cases. If, as a matter of fact, judges opinions precluded them from executing their duty, people like Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson, Michael Jackson, Robert Blake, and many others would be behind bars.
As great as things like Spotify are, the problem with wide adoption that I foresee concerns data transmission limitations. One of the perks people in Europe, and especially Scandinavia, enjoy are low mobile rates, including data. That means things can be streamed almost everywhere. With the high cost of data in US and even higher in Canada, not to mention the constant back and forth on UBB, adoption of the streaming service won't be as fast and wide as in other places.
Probably has something to do with the new president whose wife is a telenovela actress. And I'm sure he loves her enough (unless it's true that he also uses her as a punching bag) to arrange to have ACTA signed by using previous presidential appointee as the trigger man.
Raccoons are the next evolution of sentient life on Earth...
I once got outsmarted by a raccoon... The furry fucker created a diversion and while I was checking out what was happening with my tent, he/she stole my bread and nearly ruined my dinner. I threw my axe at it. Missed. :-(
Seriously, none of this is a big surprise although the people running London 2012 might be particularly clueless. I mean these are the folks who wanted Keith Moon to play at the ceremony. Ya know.. that Keith Moon... from The Who... the one that's been dead for 34 years...
I'm not sure where Lionsgate fits in the majors vs indie scale but they released this little movie recently called "The Hunger Games"? So far it grossed (in theaters only) almost 60 times it's budget. Plus they also made bunch of other films... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lionsgate_films)
NHTSA-approved GPS devices will now come with the obligatory "Oops! Missed your turn!" voice advisory. So not to distract the driver of the vehicle, all the advisories will be put in a queue; they will sound continuously in a row once the car becomes immobile and until the queue is emptied.
