    Texans asked to limit electricity use after six power plants go down ahead of a hot weekend

    I'm involved with data centre builds, so I'm aware of the noise they generate. So I agree that inside - yes, they're loud. But we're talking outside. And there's no reason that one should be generating up to 90dB outside the building, let alone at a point beyond the boundary where neighbours...

    Texans asked to limit electricity use after six power plants go down ahead of a hot weekend

    What are they using for cooling - a turboprop engine? Most datacentres are near-silent, and it's not that hard to do. This just sounds like a shonky third-world operation - why a first world government would put up with it is beyond my comprehension.

    Gen Z and Job Interviews

    If you live in a city and have access to frequent and cheap public transport, and can summon a rideshare or a takeaway meal in a few minutes via your phone, I don't have trouble understanding why young people don't bother learning how to drive. Plus cars are more expensive to maintain and insure...

    Gen Z and Job Interviews

    But those stats are hardly surprising for a demographic in their teens/early 20s. It's like going back to 1986 and asking why Gen-X are spending so much on acid wash jeans, arcade games and New Order albums. Plus from one of the links you shared... Sounds pretty sensible.

    Gen Z and Job Interviews

    Why is driving such an essential skill? Plenty of cities have public transport that negates the need to drive. I would consider cooking, cleaning and maintaining a household with basic maintenance skills more important.

    Gen Z and Job Interviews

    Given that the youngest Gen-Zs are 12 this year, the lack of independence is hardly surprising. And I see your point - "Haven't been taught those attributes and how being an adult works". When I hear this grumbling from parents of my generation, my response is "well why didn't you teach them?"

    Russia is ready to “swallow” Europe whole?

    While what you've said is correct, that doesn't change the fact that Germany and Russia agreed a plan to invade Poland together and teamed up to carry it out. And it was this invasion of Poland (first by Germany, yes) that started WW2. Would Germany have invaded if they couldn't count on...

    FTC Announces Ban on Non-Competes

    Which is already covered under existing NDAs and other employment contracts. No-competes is just a cheap way for companies to try and lock employees into accepting lesser conditions once they've joined because they know it will be difficult for them to seek jobs outside their industry, or fund a...

    FTC Announces Ban on Non-Competes

    In the majority of cases, companies were just putting them in for no real reason. Little wonder a lot of people just ignored them. Good on common sense prevailing.

    Russia says deeper U.S. hybrid war using Ukraine will end in Vietnam-style humiliation

    Russia reckons the US got humiliated in Afghanistan? Russia? Do these people own a history book?

    Trump Media to fail?

    I've had to tell myself that a few times with some less than stellar stocks I've bought over the years - this year's loss is next years tax deduction!

    Trump Media to fail?

    From the time of the story you posted 2 weeks ago, a $2 billion loss is around $100k lost per minute. I've seen meteorites plummet to Earth slower than that.

    Russia is ready to “swallow” Europe whole?

    Especially when it was Russia teaming up with the Nazis to invade Poland that got us WW2 in the first place.

    Russia is ready to “swallow” Europe whole?

    Why just the US? Everyone is "under the judgement of the Lord". Including Russia. To imply anything else is to negate the doctrine of universal sin and downplay the work of Christ in salvation.

    Abrams Tank: ARAT-1 Explosive Reactive Armor ‘Fails’ To Save US-Origin MBT; Succumbs To FPV Drones

    Vladimir Putin’s wealth: $1.4bn mansion, 700 cars, 58 aircraft, and more Vladimir Putin’s wealth: $1.4bn mansion, 700 cars, 58 aircraft, and more Putin is a bourgeoisie, fat, imperialist bent on expansionism. Perhaps we need a special military operation into Russia to stop him.

    Abrams Tank: ARAT-1 Explosive Reactive Armor ‘Fails’ To Save US-Origin MBT; Succumbs To FPV Drones

    Not even bothering to hide the fact that you're posting blatant Russian propaganda? I guess it makes a change from the usual crop of flat earthers and 9/11 truthers who used to join around the New Year.
