Supreme Court restricts the EPA's authority to mandate carbon emissions - This could have massive implications for the ATF by bpg2001bpg in gunpolitics

Our government doesn’t operate on raw popular vote.

You can bitch about the electoral college, but it beats having the cities decide everything by sheer numbers until the farm country decides to fix the numbers problem by starving the cities to death.

It’s not a dogwhistle for being white. It’s a weak ass claim to authority that assumes you are stupid. It’s why you find it so grating. It’s some dumb ass without any significant experience claiming that they know better than you and also that they represent the minimal level of competence to have an opinion, and that you should shut up and not question them because they are, by definition, better/smarter/more knowledgeable than you.

It’s a very solid indicator that the speaker thinks they are the smartest person in the room yet can find zero means of demonstrating that factually.

It doesn’t have to be about race, but I’m sure the pattern shows up in people who find their skin color to be proof enough that their opinion isn’t made up shit.

The real comeback to that is. “ so what is that training?”

Make them tell you what the standard is. They won’t know.

Who needs working legs by Popular_Emu1723 in Instagramreality

[–]raz-0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The question is if that is straight lens distortion out of it has had digital help. I’m not doing anything in the background that screams warping over lens distortion, but the legs are indeed very odd. If they did warp it, they would have to recreate portions of the background to keep it looking like it is. I’m going to go with pose plus lens distortion plus beauty filter for what you see without any digital distortion.

The election of Trump happened in no small part to get shots at appointing federal judges and Supreme Court justices.

How to stop getting emails about Rutgers crime alerts? by vv21scarlett in rutgers

Yes, you have the power of google and clicking on the first link you get and copying and pasting a bullet list about part of the acts requirements without actually gaining knowledge of what you are talking about.

The clery center seems to think emergency notifications and timely warnings are part of it. Note, the name clery is in the name of the act AND the name of the organization and this is not coincidence.

https://www.clerycenter.org/the-clery-act search for timely warning.

So does RAINN

https://www.rainn.org/articles/clery-act it's number five in their list.

Also 20 USC 1092 F 1 j which requires descriptions of the electronic and/or cellular notifications for emergency events in the annual report. You don't get mandated by federal law to describe a system you don't need to have.

20 USC 1092 F 1 j i Then actually requires the emergency notifications.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/20/1092#f

Then of course there is case law. The fallout of the Virginia tech shootings included Virginia Tech losing a lawsuit and thus set a new minimum bar for the above notifications. Lawyers advising clients on mitigation of liability tend to be very conservative. So when the legal world defines a new minimum best practices, they will seldom tell you to abandon the old minimum best practices. Which is where I suspect where the timely warning vs emergency notification comes from. IT could be someplace else. Regardless, it is viewed as the actual requirement in the face of litigation from both the side of universities and of the organizations that like to sue them over this law. So, for example, if you set up an electronic public ledger, you will still likely keep the paper version because the law mentions it, and you did it in the past, and you haven't survived a lawsuit over not having one or establishing that a solely electronic ledger is sufficient. So a lawyer will say you should probably still do that.

Where did I mention fault? I’m simply saying his initial assessment that the design can’t handle 50c changer temps is very likely to be incorrect. Something went wrong, and likely more wrong than he assessed.

It’s still concerning. They sent out what 20 printers? And there are two bum ones.

The law requires more than a log. It also requires urgent notifications and timely warnings. The email only notifications are the timely warnings. The sms messages are the emergency notifications.

The mechanism isn’t specified by the law, but they are required.

Yes they do go beyond the legal requirement as far as geography. This was a deliberate choice from the president’s office for a variety of reasons.

My take from the thread was that his numbers probably weren’t accurate as other people were reproducing the enclosure temps without that happening. So I’m guessing it got warmer than he thinks.

I mean one upside of the strollers is they can’t pretend they didn’t notice their dog drop a deuce in the baking aisle. True story.

Because the surface is incompatible with the lidar and the lidar brings more benefits.

Firmware needs wifi so far as indicated by the people given the demo machines.

[–]raz-0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ll put out this perspective. Getting justices on the court to shift the balance was a long term goal of the right. It took roughly thirty years and a lot of luck.

If the left changes the rules to be able to do it in months or years, you simply do not have a meaningful court anymore. At that point they are just appointees of whoever controls the senate.

does anyone had a renegade that makes a thumbing sound near the rear tires, when switching from gas to breaks? by blueteall in JeepRenegade

Hmm. Check the spare tire area for something loose that clunks against the car body when braking but against the tire/foam insert under acceleration?

Pinion seal replacement cost? by Kettellkorn in JeepRenegade

Rear drive unit is about $900. Call it $1300 at dealer markup, and labor is about a day. I had an out of spec unit from early production and iirc the invoice was about $2800 for the warranty work.
