It needs to stopped being subsidized. One reason the bubble was so bad was because all Wall Street knew they'd get bailed out when things went south(ex, LTCM), so it was actually a low-risk industry to insiders. Knock off the corporatism, relax regulations to let smaller businesses compete(did you think Big Business pushed for those out of the goodness of its heart?) and cut unemployment benefits(get people interested in working, rather than mooching for eternity) and the economy will recover. Education also needs to be depoliticized, though what exactly that'll take is an exercise I leave to the reader.
The military's budget probably outstrips the amount of federal subsidies for non-federally mandated programs, so really bringing them in is a nonsequitor. The program itself is minuscule compared to the cost of Medicare and Social Security, which are where the feds would have to look to do much in terms of trimming the budget.
With it becoming easier and easier to duplicate things, copyright and patent laws are running headlong into the fact that they're nothing more than state-granted monopolies and not any actual form of property, with no basis in anything but politics. You can't stop human ingenuity forever.
De facto, AKA what everybody does and de jure, AKA what people on high horses think everybody should do. When the high-horsed people concoct ridiculous sounding standards, they shouldn't be surprised when everybody continues to use the old standard, especially when the only point of confusion is deliberately manufactured to sell storage.
And Firefox manages it badly; simply put, when Firefox's pool of allocated memory buckets fills up, it decides which bucket to keep based on which one's bigger; not a problem if you don't need many giant buffers at once, but it can easily build up.
In layman's terms, Firefox does free memory, but in such as way that the amount used always goes up.
Linux does nothing special to keep an application from being compromised; it merely makes it unlikely for a compromised program to elevate itself to root privileges. This isn't as restrictive as it seems - it's entirely possible for an unprivileged program to do everything described in the article, provided it avoids most ports below 1024 or so(though I'm pretty sure that restriction's limited purely to receiving and that it could send to a low port without hassle).
The whole point of fascism/corporatism is that the state serves the interest of well-connected companies(as opposed to socialism, where its members act in their own interest; there's really no winning unless you're in), so even if a company new its secrets were being given to its competitor by the government, there's little they could do about it except start delivering messages in person.
Can happen in any language; the issue here is that C was designed when simple bounds checking was horribly expensive and as a result pushed a lot onto the programmer whose time was cheap compared to the runtime cost. C's original design as a system language helped in this error, since that role requires the ability to remove type barriers. Of course, C++'s requirement to cast to and from a void*(which I never could understand) is what made the error undetectable: a C compiler would've happily converted, but sparked an incompatible pointer warning.
For the love of God, the human body can tolerate small amounts of U-238 without problem(and the radiological effects are minimal) - perhaps you're thinking of plutonium, which is extremely combustible and for which the body lacks any tolerance. Depleted uranium has been used in everything from silverware to planes - it's safe, ya nitwit.
Is that Travis county tends to be very lenient with its sentencing - even considering the punishment for refusing to sign, that tasering will probably make up the majority of her punishment. Oddly enough(or not), neighboring Williamson tends to throw the book at just about everybody and throw it HARD.
If ten percent fractional reserves isn't enough to keep banks liquid, two percent will just sink the entire economy - the inevitable bust might even be our fall of Rome.
As for waiting two thousand years for digital computers(mechanical ones were well known to the Greeks), that was because Heron of Alexandria never thought to put his steam ball and knowledge of pistons together.
Because there's no money to invest. The only way to fund this is through increasing the already monumental deficit he has planned - and investors are not getting as excited about T-bills, making the Fed run the printing presses. I can't wait for Obama's youthful, energetic portrait on the new hundred trillion dollar bill.
Most of the people who fall for these scams have the ability to figure it out. However, they're so damned greedy that they'll respond to Nigerian scams(especially those who fall for it time after time) - those who don't know better usually don't receive mail direct. So yes, most people deserve our scorn.
