“Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.”
It's not the first such service to be acqu-hired and closed this year either.
Unfortunately, when we fixed this problem in a later IE8 Beta, we went a bit too far; we restricted the content type to text/plain but didn’t allow the caller to specify that the data was in application/x-www-urlencoded form. This is problematic because server-side frameworks (e.g. ASP, ASPNET, etc) will only automatically parse a request’s fields into name-value pairs if the x-www-urlencoded content type is specified. To workaround this issue, server code that currently processes HTML Forms must be rewritten to manually parse the request body into name-value pairs when receiving requests from XDomainRequest objects. This makes adding support for the XDomainRequest object more difficult than it would be otherwise.
An act of terrorism that doesn't instill terror in the target population is a failure, even if people die. And an act of terrorism that doesn't impress the terrorists' allies is not very effective, either.
Terrorism pushes all of our fear buttons, really hard, and we overreact. But our brains are fooling us. Even though this will be in the news for weeks, we should recognize this for what it is: a rare event.
As the details about the bombings in Boston unfold, it'd be easy to be scared. It'd be easy to feel powerless and demand that our elected leaders do something -- anything -- to keep us safe. It'd be easy, but it'd be wrong.
Companies are conceived of, financed, and built with the hope of getting noticed by a deep-pocketed suitor and, literally, killed. Because although the human workers remain, the soul of the company – its vision – is discarded like an eggshell. Arguably, a company is nothing but a vision shared by a team of collaborators. And when the vision dies, the visionary fails.
An acquisition, or an aqui-hire, is always a failure. Either the founders failed to achieve their goal, or – far likelier – they failed to dream big enough.
The _utmb cookie is also destroyed at the end of a day or when a visitor returns to the website via a different traffic source value (utm_source, utm_medium, utm_campaign, utm_content, utm_term, utm_id or gclid) even within the 30 minutes time frame.
If you’ve got a personal idea, don’t pivot just because the world isn’t with you. Some of our greatest inventions and creations have come about precisely because founders saw things differently and refused to pivot when the world was telling them to.
And this is where people can get hurt: treating speculative ideas as personal, and personal ideas as speculative.
Personal ideas are the exact opposite. You aren’t in it for the money.
Speculative ideas are all about the money.
“Were such an emergency to arise, I would examine the particular facts and circumstances before advising the President on the scope of his authority,”
Realizing that he had acknowledged that their marriage was “work,”
The wisest thing my dad told me before I got married was "Love is a decision." Implied in that statement is the truth that the decision to love takes work to follow through on.
Realizing that he had acknowledged that their marriage was “work,” Affleck quickly clarified his statement. “It's good. It is work but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with!”
Inspiration should be much more constant and consistent. It's the “why” you do it versus the “what” you do. And in truth the why will drive you for the next five years, while the what is much shorter term. That's the reason inspiration matters
only 2 matter before Product/Market Fit – Activation and Retention. Before Product/Market Fit, the goal is validating that you have built something people want. You don’t need lots of traffic sources to support learning and people don’t usually refer a product unless they have used and like the service. So both Acquisition and Referral can be tabled for now. What does correlate with building something people want is providing a great first experience (Activation) and most important of all, that they come back (Retention).
One of the most common mistakes we see when a team is initially structuring their application as an SOA is to lean on a single database as the central storage bucket backing all of the services.
The Irish singer and co-founder of ONE, a campaigning group that fights poverty and disease in Africa, said it had been “a humbling thing for me” to realize the importance of capitalism and entrepreneurialism in philanthropy, particularly as someone who “got into this as a righteous anger activist with all the cliches.”
Research shows that an ability to resist urges will improve your relationships, increase your dependability, and raise your performance.
As a fellow 5+ years Rails dev, I think what may have started us down the path was trying to make functional tests easier w/ things like Foxy Fixtures... which led to factories, but then somewhere along the line we forgot which pain we were trying to fix and started using factories for everything.
once you're spinning up the whole stack, factories can be really useful. But they're not useful for actual unit tests. Which I guess is another way to state what I'm saying: we have abandoned unit tests, and now we're paying the price.
trying to make sense of a gauge on a dashboard essentially requires me to keep three bits of data in my mind: What metric or measure a particular meter is reporting The last time I looked at that meter What the value of the meter was the last time I looked at it
Every time an app provides a dashboard full of charts and graphs, it should be replaced with a news feed offering a stream of insights instead.
