Few people will remember "thin wire" ethernet, the 10base2 ethernet used before today’s 10baseT ethernet (which uses the RJ45 connector which looks like a phone jack, but bigger).

Anyway, you had to "terminate" the ends of your cables. And you sometimes had "T" connectors if your machine had to be hooked to more than one other point on the network.

Turns out, these terminators and "T"-connectors make neat cubicle art. (It kind of looks like Maggie Simpson is trying to smoke out of one.)

I need to figure out if a quit claim deed would work for me.?

Question by : I need to figure out if a quit claim deed would work for me.?
I currently have a mobile home that I still pay a mortgage on in California. I am living in Virginia and trying to get the mobile home off my hands. The mobile home is in a park that is “Owner occupied only” so I am not able to rent it out to help offset the costs of keeping it there. If I were to quit claim deed it to someone would that put them in the position of “owner” and allow them to occupy the mobile home. I am not looking to make anything off of the sale, it just needs to be out of my hair.

Yes, but I think they would still be using your credit. If I understand it correctly, a quit claim deed transfers ownership, but the new person doesn’t go out and get their own mortgage. Make sure it’s someone trustworthy!

Humanoid Robots Playing Soccer, Part 2: How They Work

In July, the US scored a major international soccer victory. While the nation was unable to bring home the Women’s World Cup, Team DARwIn took first place in the Humanoid Kid Size competition at the 2011 RoboCup tournament in Istanbul, Turkey. The robots, whose name stands for “Dynamic Anthropomorphic Robot with Intelligence,” are a collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania and Virginia Tech. Penn Engineering team members who traveled to the competition included Stephen McGill, Seung-Joon Yi, Yida Zhang, along with Jordan Brindza, Ashleigh Thomas, Spencer Lee, and Nicholas McGill, who are undergraduate and graduate students in the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory. Team members from Virginia Tech included Jeakweon Han, a Ph.D. student in the RoMeLa Lab, and Taylor Pesek, an undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering For the competition, Penn developed the software framework that provided each robot with artificial intelligence (AI). This AI operates on multiple levels. At the most basic, it provides instructions on how to move each joint of the leg in order to walk; at the most complex, it incorporates all of information gathered by the robot—such as whether a collection of red pixels in its camera represents the ball, or the distance between itself, other robots and the goal — and uses it to make gameplay decisions. The engineers their team’s overarching strategy should focus on speed at the expense of strength and accuracy

Disintegrating Democracy at Work: Labor Unions and the Future of Good Jobs in the Service Economy

Disintegrating Democracy at Work: Labor Unions and the Future of Good Jobs in the Service Economy

The shift from manufacturing- to service-based economies has often been accompanied by the expansion of low-wage and insecure employment. Many consider the effects of this shift inevitable. In Disintegrating Democracy at Work, Virginia Doellgast contends that high pay and good working conditions are possible even for marginal service jobs. This outcome, however, depends on strong unions and encompassing collective bargaining institutions, which are necessary to give workers a voice in the decisions that affect the design of their jobs and the distribution of productivity gains.

Doellgast’s conclusions are based on a comparative study of the changes that occurred in the organization of call center jobs in the United States and Germany following the liberalization of telecommunications markets. Based on survey data and interviews with workers, managers, and union representatives, she found that German managers more often took the “high road” than those in the United States, investing in skills and giving employees more control over their work. Doellgast traces the difference to stronger institutional supports for workplace democracy in Germany. However, these democratic structures were increasingly precarious, as managers in both countries used outsourcing strategies to move jobs to workplaces with lower pay and weaker or no union representation. Doellgast’s comparative findings show the importance of policy choices in closing off these escape routes, promoting broad access to good jobs in expanding service industries.

Do I need a license to work as an astrologist?

Question by emrogs: Do I need a license to work as an astrologist?
I’m a psychologist, and I found a software for astrologist that guides me through all the steps in reading charts. I believe that with my psychologist studies and that software I can do consultations as an astrologist. Do I need a license in Virginia to promote myself as one and charge people for it?
AstroloGER*. (thanks)

Answer by eri
Astrologer, not astrologist. No, you can just make stuff up. That’s all they do. There’s no real science to it – it’s a superstition and it’s one that doesn’t work. As a psychologist, you should be very familiar with that by now, so I’m not really sure why you’re setting out to scam people.

Answer by Susan N
try to match the climate (weather and precipitation over time) to both areas. Then, available food source and predators. If they are similar, then most likely yes.

You should never introduce organisms where they do not belong. Look at Australia. They’re screwed.
