It is alarming, the way words like "emperor", "imperial" etc are being bandied about. Some of us have been viewing lectures on the foundations of western civilization, and one recent lecture covered the process by which Rome made the transition from Republic to Empire. A recent parallel is the process by which Germany went from a parliamentary form to a dictatorship. Don't think it can't happen here. A republic is inherently fragile.
"Karl Marx has a degree in economics. His philosophy still sucks the big one."
Nice try at changing the subject.
Well, no, it was a pretty lame try.
If you ever come with anything to say on topic, be sure and let us know.
Again, have a nice day.
You need a law degree (and it helps to be a Professor of Law) to say anything reasonably authoritative about such matters. You clearly don't have such a degree, and you clearly are not a Professor of Law, since if you were you would have said so.
You are in way over your head. You are a waste of time and space, since you have nothing to say.
Have a nice day.
Eben Moglen is Professor of Law at Columbia Law School. Where did you earn your law degree?
Google it (it's a video on Slashdot).
Emphasis on the "again".
"Microsoft Azure is having troubles again, the company acknowledged Tuesday night. According to a status update, Azure’s Traffic Manager was experiencing “a multi-region partial performance degradation.” "
Means "all other things being equal or held constant". It's a basic mathematical concept, encapsulated in the notion of a partial derivative. Basic principles of physics couldn't be formulated without it.
"The productivity mantra could well blow up in Nadella’s face. He wants to redefine how people think about Microsoft but might end up reinforcing everything people dislike about the company. New tools to make work easier? Ho-hum. Eyes roll. Sounds like the same old Microsoft trying to dress up the same old clunky code. Not to mention that it takes an hour or two of explanation to figure out how productivity encompasses things like Xbox, Windows Phone, and Minecraft—and very few people have any inclination to listen to Microsoft for an hour or two."
