  1. Agreed between compounding the labor shortages and drug prices I can't see it being sustainable at present levels of service. I would have also thought WTO being down would have given leavers pause but apparently not. Any country can slap tarrifs on the UK specifically with no repercussions beyond the UK's own response.
  2. Same here Really captures the magic of the original trilogy.
  3. I dislike the design of the cargo area more than anything else. Looks more like a trunk than useable as a truck bed. I couldn't imagine hauling furniture around or having a couple of two-by-fours extending out the back of it. Something more like the F-150 but electric, would capture the market better I think. Definitely an interesting cyberpunk design otherwise though.
  4. Typically see the dreams reflect external reality rather than the other way around. You may have cut yourself against something and your brain interpreted the very real pain as in attack in your dream. Should note that there are some oddball Dermatological disorders out there as well.
  5. I was really surprised by this my last visit. A number of doctors, nurses and staff ended up passing through my hospital room. 2-4 doctors, 6 nurses, 2 payment processors, various cleaners and workers transporting patients for surgeries and tests. You would think at least some of that could be minimized. Would be nice if companies would supply hands-free options to help combat inevitable boredom. You wouldn't be handling a pair of voice controlled glasses or headphones anywhere near as much as your cell.
  6. I've read about people's dental work picking up radio waves before. Are your fillings metallic? May want to see a dentist. Something has to be loose to act as a speaker.
  7. the problem is you are dividing by zero which has undefined elements to it. 0 = 0/4 = 0/-2579 = 0/323i = 0/π = ... From a simple seeming 1/0 you can forever pull any number(excluding zero) from below, preventing you from even saying it equals anything in particular even if it heads that way. 1/0 = 1/((((0/.33)/9i)/-196)/5) consider 0a and a-a for added fun.
  8. People will likely continue to move into art, science and service positions. Any mentally unengaging work should be entirely eliminated. Do agree need to ensure bennefits are shared equally. Ideally a quasi post scarcity utopia is created. People could then work for more(or not) as they wish.
  9. Yeah, the speed of light and causality are closely interwoven. Warp drive is likely impossible due to this reason.
  10. I mean he's not guilty until he's been convicted. High crimes and misdemeanors would definitely cover this however. As soon as it passes the House he will have been impeached, so at least that much goes down in the history books.
  11. It might seem obvious but depends on if it has been proven legally speaking. As horrible as it sounds, Trump is in charge of the execution of the laws. Our checks and balances system isn't exactly well balanced right now, but it's all we have to work with. Nobody's actually above the law but presidency definitely comes closest.
  12. Likely deliberate on the part of your genes in most cases. Historically if you have survived that long, you will have proven yourself capable and are likely well set up to provide for any offspring. Replacement is probably the best route to look at. Most alternative methods are not especially successful. Amount to trying to do something external to impact something internal.
  13. Yes, that is correct.
  14. Are you referring to the hemoglobin SC genotype? If so it results in a milder version of sickle cell disease. https://www.healthline.com/health/sickle-cell-anemia#types You can treat the symptoms, do regular blood transfusions or bone marrow/ stem cell replacement.
  15. In physics, temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of particles in a system. The individual particles won't necessarily all have the exact same amount of kinetic energy. No phase change takes a set amount of time. It is this whole semi-random process. What's really happening is incredibly complex so we have to simplify it so we can make equations and models of the behavior.
  16. Banking(loans) goes back to Roman empire times. Actually mentioned in the Bible in the Parable of the Talents. Closely related, currency exchange is likewise mentioned in it. Jesus purportedly rallied against money changers in the temple. Governments would mint based on their reserves of various metals. Coins weren't necessarily pure so still could have inflation. Otherwise everything was about the same as now in terms of collecting taxes with the exception that they could also often pay with goods.
  17. Probably not how I would explain it. If you consider the phase-change diagram above instead, you can more easily see how you can change from one phase to another and still keep temperature/pressure constant, without issue. SwansonT brings up an excellent point about not confusing a model with reality. Highly recommend considering that.
  18. They're talking about an idealized isothermal process. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isothermal_process Fairly certain it couldn't ever perfectly occur in reality. Always some losses. I would recommend taking a look at the ideal Carnot cycle. Easier to consider it in that scenario Imo.
  19. The sense of smell is primitive in comparison with others and have a molecular basis. Imagine a key needing to fit into a lock. Because of this a number of drugs can have an impact. I would start by getting the name of the medicine from your doctor. Then you can check if the bennefits could be replicated or if continued use is advisable. Here is a list of some drugs known to have an effect. May help to narrow your search. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095881118300234
  20. You can always post a preprint on ArXiv if you're that concerned. The name of the game is not to keep everything to yourself. While if successful Fame and Fortune may follow, the main goal of Science to expand human knowledge in a methodical way. You want people to heavily critique your paper. If passed and then later shown to be flawed a bad paper can permanently tarnish your good name and reputation.
  21. They are likewise relying on you to do a fair review as well. If you don't like it you can go the vanity press route but there's little to stop people from publishing garbage. I honestly don't think you could even find multiple people per subject to review papers all day. If you have the skills to review at that level you have the skills to do.
  22. Were the reviewers and the journal all the same? Main issue would be simply finding people qualified. It's not like you're submitting an article to a magazine. Even there though can be a significant delay due to the number of submissions.
