Awesome article and pictures.
I started when schools didn't offer anything computers because they were 3-5k and I got more experience than any education system, but most of the ones in the geek group were educators full time and hobbyist part time.
Unfortunately with the US education system, when money gets tight it is the first on the chopping block. But in today's time of wireless and handheld devices technology it is what keeps a lot of companies running and making money.
I tell everyone getting into the field, you will know when you are ready with IT when you can make it neither be seen nor heard until required or requested 24 hours 7 days a week.
You can still drive 70 if you like, just do one thing STAY TO THE RIGHT.
I watched a driver with a reporter and cameraman in his car doing 130 on the Autobahn and the reporter asked him, how is it that there is not more accidents on this stretch of road?
The left is for fast drivers the right for slower drivers and we don't have 6 cup holders in our cars. The reporter asked what was does 6 cup holders have to do with anything, the driver replied, it is a nice way of saying we have no distractions in our cars like Americans do.
I would have overly instructed them to pat me down, being he is a pacemaker patient he knew what was going to happen. Hell I have healthy heart I knew what would happen if he walked up tot he courthouse or airport. Sounds like someone that is distracting others because he can't be a man and stand up for the wrongs he has done in life.
There is not one President that will appease the entire nation EVER. They all have issues, Pro's and Con's. I hear the statement often "if Regan was still around" Regan was not any better than what we have today.
Reagan pledged during his 1980 campaign for president to balance the federal budget, but never submitted a balanced budget in his eight years in office. In 1981, the deficit was $79 billion and, in 1986, at the peak of his deficit spending, it stood at $221 billion. The federal debt was $994 billion when he took office in 1981 and grew to $2.9 trillion when his second term ended in 1989. Talk about spending. But he did create 20+ millions jobs.
So stop watching 24/7 news, the reading the drudge report, Glen Beck or whatever shock news feed that only tells you bad side of a current sitting President and educate yourself on American Presidents and you will realize they only tell you what you want to hear to get elected. They know they can not do anything about whatever issue in four year term but voters buy into it.
And there is great things that Victoria has to offer or that can offer.
Imagine Victoria being recognized as one of the following:
Environmentally friendlyArbor friendlyHealth friendlyArt friendlyAdvance medicalTechnically savy
I'd agree multiple flight destinations would help a lot, I took a trip to NY and wanted to try no driving route. I'll save that money in gas driving round trip, plus having a tollway sticker they add it to my account for parking.
Typical American Christians
Deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of theirs.
Feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt and a rib bone from man.
Laugh at polytheists, but have no problem believing in a Triune God.
Willing to spend life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.
Modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince otherwise, but someone rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" is all the evidence needed.
Define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers and consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.
Feel the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs will spend eternity in an infinite hell of suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."
Take the Bible's contents and use it against black slaves, woman voting and interracial marriages but ignore other guidelines such as treating your body as a temple, clothing and forgiving others.
Actually know a lot less about the Bible, Christianity, and church history than any other religions know about theirs.
I always question any act of humanity, we are self absorbed, egotist, and feel we are the center of the universe a lot of the times. Actually we are more like cancer to the earth and the universe. We pollute everything that we have access to or created such as, earth, low orbit earth, internet, religion, outer space and even other planets.
