After replacing my roof and being told I was happy with the work they did, the roofers offered incentives to write reviews. If after that, the roofing company told me about a pesky bill in the state legislature that would hurt their ability to pay me even more incentives continue providing great roofing services. . . I maybe convinced to throw a sentence in about that.
See, after the hospital refused and a friend posted bail, instead of releasing him, they had him transferred to a jail passing along that he was arrested on drug related charges. Guess what happened at that jail?
If you said full body scan that found no drugs after he was already supposed to be released on bail, you win!
It helps with a liability lawsuit when the shot person is dead. Dead men tell no tales, like how they were completely compliant up to being shot. When the only witness is the shooter, chances of beating a liability claim go up.
Fingerprint unlock but the phone requires me to enter the password once a day. Presumably, I can delay responding to a fingerprint request for that long a period of time. After that, the fingerprint is useless. Sadly, more people don't bother turning on this feature.
The car enthusiasts of the world say "Welcome to 1974". Why would you buy a non-commodity item of value from a seller without first verifying the authenticity of what's being sold?
How is it that this is apparently new?
This isn't correct. Police get sued for rights violations, even when they haven't violated rights. They also get sued when they do something that unintentionally violates rights which is what QI was originally supposed to protect - letting them do their job correctly, without worry that an unintentional error would end them financially and professionally.
What QI has turned into however is a shield for deliberate wrong-doing and deliberately not putting into place processes or training to ensure people know enough not to do something wrong or to give an excuse such that someone can say, "you cannot prove I actually knew what I did was wrong".
In this case, insurance could work well - if a requirement to "practice law enforcing" and you can no longer afford it, it kicks you out of that job. At the same time, it shifts some of the calculus around civil lawsuits - it's easier to rule against an insurance company in court than your city or it's police department.
Makes perfect sense, people driving along a drug corridor most days a week to carry out a trade likely are carrying tools of the drug trade. I mean, what other reason do you have to drive along a drug corridor for the express purpose of furthering a trade?
Then the high probability of science being proven wrong in the future, whether slightly or catastrophically, should be enough reason for people not to automatically trust science, and instead perhaps continue what they're doing regardless of what 'science' insists they should do instead.
Umm, you've gone off into the weeds. How have you determined that the probability is high of science in general being proven wrong and science specifically in this case being prove wrong in the future?
"So... if this isn't going to hurt Google and isn't going to help other companies in the market, then... what's the point exactly?"
Deterrence and to set acceptable standards. It's the same reason we have laws with punishment for crimes despite the fact that most people will likely not break much beyond traffic and parking violations and hardened criminals committed to a life of crime will proceed regardless of the penalties if caught.
If the fine for running a red light was $50000, despite the fact that most motorists in a given area have no plans of running red lights, people would think twice if it were published someone was fined (and paid) that much, regardless of that person's ability to pay the fine.
Wow, Chris Hansen went from protecting indecent persons speech to speaking to persons attempting indecent acts with minors. Who knew?
Except, is there an easy way to actually "like" or "favorite" something on tumblr?
It seems like "reblogging" is an easy way to do this and given the ease of doing so, why would you "like" or "favorite" something that could disappear when you could easily preserve it so what you like doesn't go away when the host dies?
I bookmark links to product pages for stuff I find interesting. And about once a year, go through culling links which are now dead. Then I found a site that essentially makes copies of product images and summarizes what it does - so I bookmark that site, rather than the underlying product page because those links are less likely to go away.
Preserving information on it's own is a thing that many people value and does not necessarily imply some additional level of support or promotion.
