- colors like yellow and blue are not variations of the same color
The article was saying that languages start off only distinguishing between light colors and dark colors, then they, apparently, start defining warmer colors (red and yellow) before moving on to cooler colors (green and blue).
If they were really concerned about traffic deaths, they'd do something that would reduce traffic, like build and fund public transportation. Instead, they just want to punish anyone who drinks. This has become a teetotalist movement, and no one seems willing to speak out against it.
- The second term ... giving the best result is "color" ... If "color" ... was the best return term, there wouldn't be any article about this crap.
I don't think that word means what you think it means. Color is the "rate at which the gamma of an option or warrant will change over time." It's not surprising that changes in searches for that term correlate with changes in the financial market.
- He never wrote what happens when people do choose the worst option though.
This is, in my experience, what happens most often. People are so concerned with getting a job done, and done quickly, that the first lame idea that pops out of someone's mouth is exactly what a work group will end up doing.
- Supervillains are wicked lame in our reality.
- What is it about disasters that makes markets plunge?
Markets require a huge amount of legal and physical infrastructure to function, and investors understand this. Anything which might interfere with the enforcement of property or contract laws, or currency regulation, or transportation, or communication, or power will make investors very nervous.
The film mentioned in the introduction, "You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough," is online:
Hmm, I completely missed it.
I don't think I've heard the term "cowman" before.
I suspect the reason no one has replied yet is because no one knows how to respond.
IP laws make no sense anymore. As far as I can tell, courts will rule in favor of big business regardless, and they'll invent the most bizarre rationals for their rulings, hoping that no one will be able to untangle their threads of reasoning to see how silly it's all become.
In this case, the judge seems to be saying that people who purchase digital works distributed over the Internet are actually (re)purchasing a piece of the hard drive or flash drive, which they've already purchased from a hardware retailer, because they paid to download the digital work to their hard drive or flash drive.
Apparently, this is because a transporter malfunction on Star Trek resulted in Captain Kirk having to fight an evil twin duplicate of himself in the 23rd century. Or something like that.
I just don't re-publish anything still being sold by whoever purchased the publication rights from the author, and hope that this IP mess will sort itself out someday. I'm afraid I really can't do any better than that without my brain shutting down from trying to parse absurd court rulings and legislative amendments.
Why not exercise your judgment? If we can't expect teachers, or their supervisors, to be able to do that, then how can we expect them to be able to teach?
The liberal arts programs that produced the Enlightenment had no testing at all. They seemed to work pretty well.
