Leilani Münter: Why We Need to Fight for Tesla. I spent last weekend driving a Tesla Model S from Washington DC to Atlantic City and back.
Never before in my life have I driven a car that has started so many conversations. People were gathering around the car as it was parked at the supercharging station in Delaware. "Is this a Tesla? I heard about this car on the news. Can I get a look inside? " On Wednesday, Tesla made headlines when the company wired nearly half a billion dollars ($451.8M) to the Department of Energy, repaying their full loan with interest nine years early , and becoming the only American car company to have fully repaid the government.
As a race car driver, my opinion on the performance of the vehicle is this: The Tesla Model S is a masterpiece. You know the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. " In a world of environmental calamity and decay, greed, a corrupt political system, lobbyists, and special interest groups, things are definitely broke and need to be fixed.

Getting started with xmonad This is a guided tour of the core features of the xmonad window manager, allowing you to gain an understanding of the motivation, and use of a tiling window manager, and learn how to achieve the kind of screen configuration you want, simply and easily.
Starting xmonad We'll assume you've been able to build xmonad from hackage (or from your package system). If not, seeing the build instructions. You can then start xmonad directly from your .xsession or .xinitrc file, by executing it as so: # .xsession xrdb -merge .Xresources xpmroot ~/background.xpm & $HOME/bin/xmonad Note the use of xpmroot to set a background image.
Opening clients When you start xmonad, without launching clients, you'll be presented with an empty screen: Let's start some clients, to fill the screen. xmonad uses the mod1 key (alt) by default, and we can start by launching a terminal with mod-shift-return. Let's open up another terminal mod-shift-return: Layout modes Moving focus and again mod-comma:

Check out our paper in Science about it (or read more below). A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam. No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs. About 200 million CAPTCHAs are solved by humans around the world every day. To archive human knowledge and to make information more accessible to the world, multiple projects are currently digitizing physical books that were written before the computer age. But if a computer can't read such a CAPTCHA, how does the system know the correct answer to the puzzle? How to make a Motherboard - A GIGABYTE Factory Tour Video.
Chi. What You'll Wish You'd Known. January 2005 (I wrote this talk for a high school.
I never actually gave it, because the school authorities vetoed the plan to invite me.) When I said I was speaking at a high school, my friends were curious. What will you say to high school students? So I asked them, what do you wish someone had told you in high school? I'll start by telling you something you don't have to know in high school: what you want to do with your life. If I were back in high school and someone asked about my plans, I'd say that my first priority was to learn what the options were. It might seem that nothing would be easier than deciding what you like, but it turns out to be hard, partly because it's hard to get an accurate picture of most jobs.
But there are other jobs you can't learn about, because no one is doing them yet. And yet every May, speakers all over the country fire up the Standard Graduation Speech, the theme of which is: don't give up on your dreams. Which is an uncomfortable thought. Upwind Now. Is It Time To Stop Malware—Forever? Rich DeMillo is a theorist who has also been: the head of all computer science research at Bellcore/Telcordia, the first Chief Technology Officer of HP, and the Dean of the College of Computing at Georgia Tech.
All this and he has also made important contributions to theory, software engineering, and security. Today I want to talk about computer malware. Just having a name—malware—for worms and viruses is a problem. We tend to name things that are important, or is it things become important when we name them? Whatever we call them, it is time, I believe, to say: I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore! In the beginning there was ARPANET. I recall watching with envy my colleagues, like Anita Jones, check her ARPANET account for messages. Eventually, those of us on the outside, those of us without ARPANET accounts, decided to act. DeMillo, who is a great and fast writer, sat down and wrote a draft of the proposal in a day or two. Why is There Malware? . Must be . . .

NASA and university researchers find a clue to how life turned left. “Our analysis of the amino acids in meteorite fragments from Tagish Lake gave us one possible explanation for why all known life uses only left-handed versions of amino acids to build proteins,” said Dr.
Daniel Glavin of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Glavin is lead author of a paper on this research to be published in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science. This is an artist’s concept of excess left-hand aspartic acid created in asteroids and delivered to Earth via meteorite impacts. The line at the bottom is a chromatogram showing that left-hand aspartic acid (tall peak in the center, with diagram of left-hand aspartic acid molecule on top) was four times more abundant in the meteorite sample than right-hand aspartic acid (smaller peak to the left, with right-handed aspartic acid molecule on top).

Content Creation: Why You Should Stop Thinking Customer First. Thinking customer first creates a barrier when conceptualizing ideas for content creation.
By zeroing in on the word “customer”, you face the danger of typecasting people into a singular role that only exists in your own personal narrative. This is a limiting approach that overlooks an important fact: your customer is more dynamic than someone in need of a particular product or service. By adopting an outward looking approach to how you understand and ultimately reach your audience, you will start creating the content that fits into the story that matters, your customers’.

Collins, chapter one, pages 31 to 49: The Asian “Sacae” Become the European Saxons Not all of the migrating Parthians and Scythians came to be known as Goths or Germans. One of the famous branches of the Germanic tribes entering from the east was the Saxons. “The Saxons were a German or Teutonic, that is, a Gothic or Scythian tribe; and of the various Scythian nations which have been recorded, the , or Sacae, are the people from whom the descent of the Saxons may be inferred...The ...were an important branch of the Scythian nation. The Scythian/Parthian people had been known as the Sacae or Saka for over a millennium. The Scythian/Sacae origin of the Germans and Saxons has been known for centuries. . “...that the Germans are called Scythians, we gather not only out of...Strabo...but also out of Pliny. Consider also Sharon Turner’s comment in the 1836 book, The History of the Anglo-Saxons: R.H.
These dates are extremely significant. D.V. 10 Lesser-Known Germanic Tribes. Humans The Germanic tribes during the Roman Empire have been, more or less, categorized into the much more well-known groups (Goths, Vandals, etc.) who did manage to burn and sack Rome.
The truth is that these “barbarians” were much more diverse and varied; their existence was more fluid than what the textbooks usually tell us. This list offers a glimpse of a few of the lesser-known Germanic tribes, listed as a footnote to the greater and more glorified barbarians that helped push Europe to the middle Ages. This tribe has only been mentioned in passing by Tacitus, in his work De Germania. The tribe’s name came from the Proto-Germanic word harjaz, which means “warrior.” Modern scholars have connected this tribe to the Viking’s Odin-related practices and beliefs: “Einherjar” (warriors who died during battle and thus will fight in Ragnarök), the Wild Hunt and the berserkers, through etymology. The Harii have no known descendants. Hessians were the supposed descendants of the Chatti.

This particular janitor is painstakingly methodical, even as she administers a mental quiz on an upcoming test. Her name is Dawn Loggins, a straight-A senior at the very school she cleans.
On this day, she maneuvers a long-handled push broom between rows of desks. She stops to pick up a hardened, chewed piece of gum. The worst, she says, is snuff cans in urinals.

Bug? Printing multiple files from Windows 7 explorer. Found this helpful 0 Thanks for the reply. I've left feedback. One could select and send a full directory of saved emails to the printer in Windows XP. For the life of me I can't figure out why they would take that capability away in Windows 7.

Danish women possess no flirting ability.
They have zero charm and zero allure. Not a feminine drop of blood courses through their veins. They don’t know how to treat you well, cook for you, or make you laugh. They don’t know how to look sexy. They won’t defer to your masculinity. Since she’s unable to flirt, a Danish girl doesn’t know how to show interest, and thinks that doing so would be showing weakness. Speaking of hookers, I’m not exaggerating when I say they are more charming than Danish girls. If you’re stuck in Copenhagen and want something that reminds you of what a woman should be, your best bet is to find a foreign girl who has been in Denmark for less than one year. Even the Danish girls who have somehow escaped the corrupting influence of the androgynous culture (she’ll probably be from Jutland) will have some random masculine quality that fucks everything up.
If you don’t want to bang a Danish girl, disagree with her. Yes, I did this. Aes.c in trunk/library – PolarSSL Trac page. Analysis of the Inequality of the Curve and the Straight Line (Extract) Introduction During the geometric developments carried out in his the first book “The Inequality of the Curve and the Straight Line,” a trend to a given relationship, or pattern is discovered by means of a research based on the “trial and error” method. In determining such pattern by means of an iterative method of geometric construction, a triangle of surface equal to the surface of a given circumference was obtained.
If DABC is an isosceles triangle with a height of 2d and a base equal to the perimeter of the circumference of diameter d, its surface will be equal to the surface of the circumference of diameter 2d. Following the development of this pattern, equalities could be established for perimeters of circumference with circumferences having a smaller diameter and equalities of square perimeters with squares having a smaller side.
