    Time does not exist. I do not believe that Time is a fundamental property of the universe. And that what we sense/measure as time, is actually just movement.

    I use the college version of this for basketball and football, and it keeps me connected to my team. I would LOVE a legit away to be able to watch all my teams games since I moved out of my home state, but with games being split between ESPN, traditional Broadcast Networks, and Conference Streaming, there is no one service I can subscribe to, that will allow me to see all the games.

    I cannot tell from all this is it the FAA grounding the aircraft and Trump announcing it, or if Trump is supplanting any FAA decision on the matter

    Piracy isn't as easy as it used to be. You also need a VPN service which can cost as much as one of these content services.

    The Fed is doing 2 things right now to get itself back on equal footing , one is raise interest rates, two Quantitative Tightening, (Selling assests it bought after the Great Recessions [1]

    Now if you believe the above story, then look into how to protect your assets.[2]

    If you really want to dig into what the next downturn might look like, Ray Dalio released a book called Big Debt Crises where he defines and explores the different type of economic down turns from history. You can get a free pdf of the book from his website [3]

    Because it is literally impossible to transfer that money into the VA.

    Congress sets the VA's budget, so when ever you see the head of the VA get pulled up in-front of congress with hat in hand give testimony because it takes forever to get some service for Vets , or that they where unprepared for the influx of new veterans to the system. It is always done w/ a wink and a nod, because congress knows why it isn't getting done and who is responsible. It is those who controls the purse. If you look at every yearly report from the VA, it will say they need more money because of some knowable future event is coming down the pipe.

    The head of the VA would love to spend more on providing services to Vets, hell if they are career and not a political appointment, they have spend their whole adult life trying to do just that. If it is an appointment, then the person under them is career gov employee who is advising the appointee and steering much of their decisions.

    The other great thing about those Air Force/military spending, they are working with use it or lose it budget, so if they don't use their budget they lose it for next year.

    This reads as a scare piece, you've got immigrants and abortion, and a study with marginally significant which I cannot find because the link in the article does not work. It is also interesting to note that much of the Missing Girl Phenomenon has been disproven which is the lynch pin of this propaganda piece

    It starts w/ articles like this, which are used a lever to curtail or restrict and then they are built upon to farther restrict.

    This is an issue that can be over come by working w/ the know entities and doing the ground work.

    Also note this Article is from October 17, 2016, so something that people having been dealing with for awhile.
    NNN agreements are becoming standard and enforceable, especially in HK.

    Basically those who want to get into the entrepreneur game don't throw ur hands up in defeat before you give it a shot, just be aware of the landscape you are walking into and be prepared to play the game.

    My other takeaways:

    Interesting isn't this what the IP system was designed to help prevent?

    Success in business comes down to speed and execution, not necessarily originality.

    This is an important question to ask about any idea that you come up with.

    “The question is more, what do you actually have that’s defensible?”

    This is also important, because it gets making ur product defensible. It also gets at how innovative is your product

    product that requires sophisticated manufacturing know-how, so that the average factory wouldn’t bother trying to copy it.

    Software makes your Moat bigger

    Companies can defend themselves from copying by investing in software that complements physical hardware

    This article while extremely intellectually dishonest is interesting to dissect not because of any Capital T truth it provides, but as examination of the backlash that is coming to the tech world, that a lot of people in Silicon Valley are unprepared for.

    Also of note is the large amount responses this has received for opinion piece that is nothing but inflammatory drivel. People are aware on some level that the Tech sector is falling out of favor. And seem to be trying to defend it. (As a reminder, Tildes is powered by engagement, if you don't agree w/ a post, don't engage, (we don't have the sage option yet)
