  • Do you want Yahoo to turn on comments to articles again?

    So months ago, Yahoo started to turn off comments on articles.  This allowed communication of thoughts and ideas, especially when articles are false or altered to fit the narrative.  

    I used to rely on the comments to signify if the articles is falsified or tampered with, because we all know that yahoo pulls their articles from other sites.  Very rarely they do anything original themselves.Is simply turning off the comments detrimental to free speech as well?I would imagine EVERYONE would want this.You can give feedback to yahoo

  • Should cancer research funds be shifted elsewhere?

    So Biden says he's going to cure cancer.  

    In Obama's last month in office, he signs a bill funding cancer research $6.3 billion in taxpayer dollars to further the search for the cure.  Wouldn't government spending be more productive elsewhere?

  • Gitlab: How can you 'simulate' triggering a pipeline with the API?

    So the following can trigger a pipeline using the API:

    curl -X POST -F token=$TOKEN -F ref=develop $URL

    I was wondering if there's a way to simulate this so I can still get the JSON output without actually triggering the pipeline?

    Ultimately what I'm trying to do is figure out if the CI/CD trigger tokens in all my projects are valid. Because some people left, those people that left, their token might be used and I want to find the those and replace them.

  • Will the standard workweek for some businesses change in light of the pandemic?

    Ford made history by establishing the 5 day work week from a 6 day work week.

    Aside from the national lockdown, if anyone has experienced it, it seems to me that it's been proven that the economy can still thrive with everyone working from home, aside from restaurants, etc.  

    Is this an indication that the standard work week for most business can change from an hourly based business to a goal oriented based business?  

    Is it possible that 2 days office/3 days home, 3 days office/2 days home, all home, may be a new standard?

  • Is there a country database where I can check my voting history?

    I'm curious to know m voting history.  But I can't find anything that has that.  There's several reasons why I would like to know my voting history:

    1. To ensure I voted who I voted for.  I would of liked to verify this when I got home after the polls.  This is similar to getting a receipt at the store.

    2.  To ensure I did or did not vote.  I would hate to think that if I registered (or even not registered) and did not vote, and by default, a vote is counted towards a party that I may or may not have registered to.  This also prevents a false vote if I was underaged or have no right to vote.

    I feel like there's no verification for myself that my vote went where I voted.  It's not hard to get people's personal information, identity thieves do it all the time, and vote in my place.  If there was a way to verify our voting history, why hasn't that been applied yet?

    Can someone explain this?

    I don't understand how so much red still means that blue wins the state.  Is it the population that matters most?  They don't count the counties won?  I would think to be fair, each state will be broken down by the counties being the deciding factor, much like how we have the electoral votes, otherwise, we got the cities making all the decisions.

  • How do you determine elevation changes in golf?

    I know what you need to do when you have a pin that is 10 yards higher or lower. But nobody talks about how do you KNOW if the pin is 10 yards higher or lower. So how do you determine the distance the pin is in elevation in relation to you?

  • How does one file for taxes when you work overseas for one year?

    Here's the situation. I will be working overseas starting June 1st. I will be back the following year on June 1st. I know you can exclude a certain amount of income, i think it's up to $91,700. I will definitely be out of the country for over 330 days to fit the physical requirements.

    My question is, how do I file when I leave in June? For this tax year, I will only be out of the country for 6 months. How would that work for first time foreign income earners filing their taxes?

    I would prefer someone who has already done this to answer how they did it. Please do not just link the IRS pages, I've already seen it and couldn't discern much out of it.

    3. move onto the next ip address without waiting for the response from the previous ping

    4. repeat step 1 until all pings are done

    5. send the ping output to a file
