Another lifelong Alaskan here to confirm this. I'll add that these remote native villages have a high number of domestic and assault convictions across the entire population (citation needed but I'm on mobile so...), so much so that most anyone living there will be in the same boat as the officers, and you'd have to pay a high premium to get anyone from outside the area to live there full time.
These VPOs aren't real police and whenever anything serious happens, the VPOs are just there to hold the fort until a State Trooper can fly in to handle any actual police work.
This does not come as much of a surprise. I posted a reply to another commenter with most of what I wanted to say, and while this is obviously terrible, it's no secret here that village culture is different than most places in the US.
VPOs aren't full police officers for this reason. I don't even think many of them can carry guns. It's been a known problem in this state for decades. Hopefully the national attention will drive some change on this issue.
Either stop updating apps, and expecting them to work flawlessly on an old OS, or update to a new phone. This seems pretty straightforward to me, and I'm confused why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.
It would roughly be like being upset that VHS players can't play DVDs. A pretty luddish rant against the march of technology combined with a sense of entitlement.
No one is saying you have to keep up, but you need to manage your expectations of what you think you're owed.
I first heard RtJ on the closing credits of an episode of Silicon Valley. I loved the song and have been a fan ever since. I get their music through Google Play so hopefully they get a pittance from all my plays of their songs. If I ever get a chance to see them live I won't balk at ticket prices knowing a label won't get a cut.
Wow. Even Saul Goodman has better ethics than this dipshit.
“It was bizarre — he was looking at a bunch of lines, like lines of code. There was no image, no Internet,”
Wouldn't surprise me if he had a Matrix screensaver and this idiot associated the green falling characters with encrypted lines of code.
"Iger, the Disney chief, has sought to calm investors worried about ESPN's fortunes, saying rising cable-subscription fees and increased advertiser spending would help the sports giant stay on top. Speaking on Bloomberg TV last week, Iger said, "We have lost some subscribers, but we believe we will continue to derive growth from ESPN. It will just not be at the rate it was before."
I'm not an economist, but I'm pretty sure Iger has the supply vs demand graph all wrong. As demand drops so are prices. Anybody who's taken an economics class can tell you that, so how is it Disney's CEO isn't privy to this bit of knowledge?
"However, the protections that [a ski mask] offers can be attractive to criminal enterprises or actors and HSI [Homeland Security Investigations] will continue to pursue those individuals who seek to use the anonymizing technology to further their illicit activity." When the DHS inquiry was brought to his attention, Lt. Matthew Isham of the Lebanon Police Department was concerned. "For all the good that a [ski mask] may allow as far as speech, there is also the criminal side that would take advantage of that as well," Isham said.
Go fuck yourself you elitist prick. Everyone should have access to a computer regardless of technical savvy, from the elderly to children. If you need a CS degree to be comfortable with an OS, then guess what? That OS has shitty user interface. Get off your high horse.
