This is awesome! That makes me really happy. I could only imagine how happy the scientists are: "It’s pretty obvious to us that this is a big year.”
This article is way larger than I thought when I opened it. But let's say I took my doses of knowledge for today. Thinking about the children it makes me feel sad and frustrated.
Anyway, the conclusion of the article is: about 1.5m Uighurs, Kazakhs and other mostly Muslim minorities in Xinjiang are being held in re-education camps, in a Chinese government “deradicalisation” drive that has been condemned by the UN, western governments and human rights groups.
The project is anchored by four women chefs who bring reflection, politics and pleasure back into food. The focal point of this project will be the rice bowl.
"The plane's speed exceeded its design limits, Reuters reported, adding that passengers would have experienced negative G-forces before impact. "
A typical person can handle about 5 g0 (49 m/s2) (meaning some people might pass out when riding a higher-g roller coaster, which in some cases exceeds this point) before losing consciousness, but through the combination of special g-suits and efforts to strain muscles—both of which act to force blood back into the brain—modern pilots can typically handle a sustained 9 g0 (88 m/s2).
In aircraft particularly, vertical g-forces are often positive (force blood towards the feet and away from the head); this causes problems with the eyes and brain in particular.
There are isolated incidents of humans surviving abnormally high G-forces, most notably the Air Force officer John Stapp, who demonstrated a human can withstand 46.2 G’s. The experiment only went on a few seconds, but for an instant, his body had weighed over 7,700 pounds.
This article got me in my feelings. Now I'm being nostalgic remembering all those crazy challenges the article points out.
It's a shame because there are some lovely neighborhoods in the areas on the map in the article, especially Shaughnessy.
The housing market in the area has become too irreparably damaged to recover. This speculative investment BS has left too many people unable to afford their rent, much less homes in the area.
It's not going to become a luxury ghost town but it is going to become unbalanced and dense in areas that don't need to be.
Everything about it is crazy. No sane person “likes this”, but the rules of capitalism foster this behavior. Amazon is financially rewarded in multiple ways for treating people in the worst ways possible.
And things are only going to get worse under capitalism. Pretty soon Amazon will have robots to staff the warehouses, and all of these low paid workers will have nothing. Similarly, 1.5 million truck drivers will be replaced by self-driving trucks. Apple will have robotic assembly lines. And so on. Millions of people will be displaced and unemployed as AI, robots and automation advance.
I was 18. I come from a poor family and since I was little I worked and studied and sustained my family.
On my eighteen-year-old birthday, I bought my first airline ticket, I defeated my fears and started a new life. One in which to work only for me, a life in which I can fulfill my dreams of career, well-being and happiness.
Why does it not show the plus sign normally? +
