Something that's there and we barely notice, taking for granted: A blinking cursor. Before that simple blinking, it was way harder to get things done. This article goes through the history of it's creation, and how much Steve Jobs (pboh) hated them. Good article, except the glaring flaw that says we store files in the CPU. (heh)
Ants have been seen healing wounded trees—behavior that is believed to have never been observed before. When holes were drilled into Cecropia tree trunks, the ants emerged from their homes to patch up the wounds, significantly reducing the size of the holes within 2 1/2 hours and leaving them completely healed within 24 hours.
This new COVID vaccine has several distinct features that make it particularly suitable for use in resource-poor settings: it is safe, effective and can be locally produced at very high quantities. CORBEVAX is easy to store and inexpensive. We hope it will be used in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, where vaccine availability has generally been abysmal.
Carlin said: “Given how frantic they are... there are things in those records that are going to make real trouble. I’m talking about prison time. It reinforces the fact that they know they’re in real trouble if these things are released—particularly if they’re released soon.”
“This is real, this is serious and it’s frightening,” said Brian Clardy, a Murray State University history professor. “We must build a democratic resistance that amounts to a counter-fascist coup — In short, we must all become ‘antifa,’ or antifascists,” said John Hennen, a Morehead State University history professor emeritus.
So today, we’re diving into a notorious collection of the weirdest, most unfortunate, hilarious names people have heard. It will make us question the role names have in our lives, and make us wonder if they should maybe be taken a little more seriously.
Used to be the average household could afford a NEW car, but quite a while ago that changed to the avaerage hoursehold only being able to afford a USED car. Now days, that's not even true, as even used cars are pricing people out. We go now to a car buyer and a car dealer from Omaha to learn more.
As a long-time user of Dell products, and still a big fan, I should NOT have to use a secondary side keyboard just in order to be able to write code on a Dell laptop. As a software developer I heavily use both the F-Keys and the Home/End keys. On my old Dell Latitude D830, all those have their own dedicated keys. But on newer Dells, like my Precision 8510 and my work-assigned Latitude 5501, you have to resort to all kinds of ridiculous finger-twisting exercises to simply use Home and End.
We go to the movies for entertainment, maybe to get away from the reality of our world and just for a few moments we escape that reality and enter a ‘Twilight Zone’ if you will, of adventure, romance, and the like. But is it possible someone is trying to tell you something? Is there ‘full disclosure’ being made on the silver screen? Are you aware of the message or have you been oblivious? Following are movie reviews on the Wizard of Oz and the MATRIX movies. They are presented herein to allow you to understand ‘really’ what has happened and what to understand.
I remember trying to listen to 2112 while on a shopping trip with my parents to Guildford mall. I was about 14 at the time. I convinced them to replace their "Roger Whittaker" tape with my copy of 2112.
Got to work today, went to log into Kronos to clock in, and nothing... Turns out Kronos' Private Cloud has been hit with a ransomware attack. They say it could take days or weeks until they are back up. Perhaps this was not something to move to (someone else's computer) the "cloud". Pop some popcorn, this is going to be "interesting"
Many people are concerned about the number of organizations asking for their Social Security Numbers. They worry about invasions of privacy and the oppressive feeling of being treated as just a number. Unfortunately, I can't offer any hope about the dehumanizing effects of identifying you with your numbers. I *can* try to help you keep your Social Security Number from being used as a tool in the invasion of your privacy.
On the subject of men: I've been a member of the gender for 24 years.I've stumbled through many of the stages of becoming a man, including wildly irregular voice changes at the age of 12, acne attacks in my teens, major crushes on girls who still do not know I am alive and periods of time when I knocked over or broke everything in sight because I had grown seven inches in four days.
Regarding women: You could take what I know about women and place this information in a hollowed-out walnut shell, and still have room left for a network executive's brain. But that has not stopped me from observing, questioning, applauding, admiring, and wondering about women.
One basic truth: Men and women are different.
Now, this may seem a little simplistic, but the fact is, for a period of about six months in 1973, it was very fashionable to believe that we were all persons first, and members of our gender second.
As scientists and concerned citizens, we applaud the recent trend towards legislation that requires the prominent placing of warnings on products that present hazards to the general public. Yet we must also offer the cautionary thought that such warnings, however well-intentioned, merely scratch the surface of what is really necessary in this important area. This is especially true in light of the findings of 20th century physics.
