  2. So the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer has nothing to do with the 'free' market and taxation systems? You are aware that the end 'user' pays the tax for the 'polluter'? Any system that was fair and equitable across all levels of materials, manufacturing, import/export and all nations involved would do, otherwise you have grey areas to exploit and massive profits to be made.
  3. Have you considered that cynicism about the way the 'free' market operates is sufficient a reason to not support a tax that will most likely deliver a healthy profit and not provide the desired environmental outcome? There's not really much point if the user pays the full cost and businesses exploit countries, who are not part of the 'system', and pocket the difference.
  4. The presumption of innocence is a fundamental principle of the common law. The UN Human Rights Committee has stated that the presumption of innocence imposes on the prosecution the burden of proving the charge and guarantees that no guilt can be presumed until the charge has been proved beyond reasonable doubt.
  5. It's not that clear cut from the Ipsos poll on November 18. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-poll-idUSKBN27Y1AJ
  6. If your summer was hot and humid you may have an uneven buildup of dust and moisture on your blades.
  7. While I studied calculus at high school we didn't cover infinitesimals until university. https://www.math.wisc.edu/~keisler/calc.html
  8. Dark matter and dark energy are most likely non local cosmological phenomena that arise because our current scientific method cannot conceive anything (balancing energy/mass) existing outside of the big bang/CMBR bubble and as a result looks solely for a solution inside that bubble while our local conception of the Milky Way and other galaxies don't have that restriction. This appears in the difference between the virial overdensity constant, Δc, in the universal ΛCDM model and that typically assumed locally for galaxies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virial_mass#Virial_radius
  9. It's probably just due to the critical overdensity constant, Δc, being used for the dm halo. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virial_mass#Virial_radius The Milky Way's dm halo radius is approximately 10 times the baryonic matter radius (according to Wikipedia) so the dm volume is approximately 1000 times that of the baryonic matter volume (1^3 vs 10^3). If we keep the dm to baryonic matter ratio the same, as that derived with the ΛCDM model from the PLANCK data, we get a critical dm overdensity in the Milky Way that is half the average dm overdensity (i.e. 200 in 1000 times the
  10. A data structure is created in a database to store and query the data from a program in the most efficient/effective way. The structure of the data is modeled in various ways. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relational_database One example of a programs data structure is an Entity Relationship diagram. There are many other ways to model data structures including Data Structure Diagrams, Data Flow Diagrams and NIAM for object oriented projects. The best method for modelling data structures depends on the nature of the data and many of the above methods can be used in conjunction with ea
  11. It looks like the paper was written by a marketing person or somebody who doesn't know much about job matching systems. I designed a Competency Management System and developed software as a proof of concept in the mid 90's. I later worked for a company that provided Competency Based training services for the international mining industry and adapted the Competency Management System to extract data from the companies Competency database in the early 2000's. What they describe is a elementary job matching system (Figures 1 and 2 in the pdf) that only links one candidate to one job, whi
  12. It seems that there is a relationship between SR and QM that you may have overlooked. My original reference was "Relativistic QM uses Lorentz transformations which are also applicable to SR i.e. the calculus is the same." I came across this recent publication that highlights aspects of the historic and ongoing development of QM that give insights into to many of the weirdness issues and my concerns, as discussed in the original thread. Kronz, Fred and Lupher, Tracy, "Quantum Theory and Mathematical Rigor", The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (Fall 2019 Edition), Edward N. Zalta (ed.).
  13. So the only real repeatable aspect of dark matter is that (Universal dark matter + Universal ordinary matter)/(ordinary matter) = (28.5% + 4.82%)/4.82% = 2 * Pi +/- 1.1%, as calculated by LambdaCDM via both the WMAP and PLANCK data, but that is not weirdness? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_(spacecraft)#2013_data_release I agree entirely, it is the only non weird fact about universal dark matter that we know about with any certainty.
  14. Corrections? The diagram I posted, that shows the two states of weirdness together in the one model, i.e. the consolidated spiral pathways of straight line in transit photons emitted from rotating/orbiting sources over time, is based on an SR 'optical appearance' plot not GR. Another weirdness is the difference between the reduced Compton wavelength (lambda_bar) used in quantum matter (LambdaCDM universal matter) and the standard Compton wavelength (lambda) used in calculating observed universal matter, which also equals 2*Pi. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compton_wavelength#Distinct
