And for two good reasons: There are current manufacturers offering that "mid century look" for a bargain basement price, and those manufacturers have set the quality and price bar for furniture extremely low, creating an unrealistic standard for what people believe should be the average price for a "good" piece of mid century furniture. So, why is vintage mid century furniture expensive, and why is it worth spending more on a vintage piece over a cheap reproduction? Quality of Materials and Ergonomics Scandinavian pieces produced in the 1950s and 1960s were made in factories like Carl Hansen Son, Slagelse Mobelfabrik, CFC Silkeborge Mobelfabrik, etc. out of the best quality rosewood and old growth teak hardwoods. These pieces were handcrafted by artisans who had 20 to 30 years of cabinet making experience under their belts, and their customers paid good money for heirloom pieces that they would own for the rest of their lives.

Flash AC: hosts the Adobe Flash player, to isolate it from the main content processes. Service UI AC: hosts special web pages, such as about:flags, and the default home page. The Internet AC is where the action is. Its job is to host web pages from anywhere, including the JS code provided by that web page, images, and multimedia. Hosting web pages is extremely complex, due to the richness of the modern web; this is the platform of the Internet, and developers need to be able to create any application and run it in this environment. Because it is complex, and hosts web pages from anywhere, this is where web security attacks begin. A malicious web site presents content intended to exploit bugs in the content hosting system, to take over control of the content process. If an attacker gains control of an Internet AC process, they need to find some way to achieve their goals.

Pretty much straight away you sense the connection and detail through the steering. Of course there’s tons of grip and unshakable traction - anything less would be extremely negligent given the power and torque on-tap - but it’s the fact you now know how much you’re using and how much is left that marks the Chiron out as something special. Image 3 of 16 Image 3 of 16 Its weight and that endless plateau of torque mean its not a flighty, fighty machine in the style of a P1 or LaFerrari , but it manages to feel both planted and calmly agile. The steering is extremely well-judged in terms of response, so you’re soon guiding the Chiron instinctively. Accurately, too, which is always a confidence booster. It feels a size smaller than it is. The problem, if you can call it such, is the range and accessibility of the performance. A squeeze of the throttle sends you surging down the road with the insistence of an avalanche.

After all: if an article at RINF is ‘unworthy’ because it’s at RINF, then an article at, for example, The New York Times is ‘worthy’ because it’s at The New York Times — ‘news’ is trusted only if it comes from the aristocracy and their agents . In that case: dictatorship is easy. I tracked the sources cited against Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, in that wikipedia article (which was the only source cited by the commenter, and which source was indeed a prominent one in my article that this person was attacking), and found no indication that anything against DWN was noted there beyond the ordinary types of post-publication editorial corrections which are made by all serious newsmedia, including by extremely famous ones. Consequently, the reader-comments at reddit were disbelieving on false grounds, and were believing on false grounds. The readers were apparently so determined to rationalize their existing beliefs, as to be critical against whatever disconfirms them, and to accept, on shoddy (if any) grounds, whatever they can find that they think somehow discredits the allegations that are contrary to their existing beliefs (basically rationalizing, on an ad-hominem level, against an ad-rem argument, which they find personally unpalatable to believe).

In the decades following the work of physiologist Ivan Pavlov and his famous salivating dogs, scientists have discovered how molecules and cells in the brain learn to associate two stimuli, such as Pavlov's bell and the resulting food. What they haven't been able to study is how whole groups of neurons work together to form that link. Now, researchers have observed how large groups of neurons in the brain both learn and unlearn a new association. It's been over 100 years since Pavlov did his amazing work but we still haven't had a glimpse of how neural ensembles encode a long-term memory, says Mark Schnitzer, associate professor of biology and applied physics at Stanford University. This was an opportunity to examine that. For a new study published in Nature , researchers worked with mice and focused on the amygdala, a part of the brain known to be involved in learning that is extremely similar across species.

Designing a car is extremely expensive. The amount of trial and error that goes into product development is staggering and the amount of money it costs is even more so. This is especially true in the auto manufacturing world, where prototypes have to be developed every time they want to change even a small aspect of a dashboard or window or door panel. This is not only costly but time consuming, which is even more valuable than money. So car companies have turned to VR to help develop aspects of car interiors and ergonomics. BMW is doing the same thing and is now using the Unreal Engine to help develop its VR systems. For those of you who aren't gaming nerds. the Unreal Engine is a graphics engine developed by Epic Games, the creators of the quite popular video game series Gears of War. The Unreal Engine is one of the more impressive graphics engines on the market, capable of creating vast and impressively realistic virtual worlds.

But his actual policies are extremely dangerous.” “[This includes] the sharp increase in the military budget, the weakening of restrictions on drone strikes, and the wild charges about Iran,” Chomsky said, adding that what really worries those who pay attention to these issues “is his megalomania and unpredictability...we know how someone who goes berserk over minor slights might react in a moment of crisis.” Despite what some have claimed, Trump has never given a “loud and strongargument against invading Iraq. According to a report from PolitiFact , during an interview with Howard Stern in 2002, Trump was asked whether or not he supported the U.S. invasion, to which he respondedYeah, I guess so .

One way to save money on coconut oil is to buy it by the gallon. Big box stores like Costco also tend to have better prices on such bulk items. Unlike other healthy oils such as olive oil, coconut oil is very resistant to oxidation that occurs once you open the jar or apply heat, so buying in bulk is not a major concern. 8. Fermented Cabbage Cabbage tends to be inexpensive, and you can supercharge its health benefits by fermenting it, thereby also significantly extending its shelf life. The fermenting process produces copious quantities of beneficial microbes that are extremely important for your health, as they help balance your intestinal flora and boost your immunity. These beneficial bacteria can even help to normalize your weight, and play a significant role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes, depression and other mood disorders. 9. Organic, Pastured Eggs Free-range or pastured eggs are a relatively inexpensive and amazing source of high-quality nutrients, especially protein and fat.

In a report cited in December by the Financial Times daily, the EU's border control agency Frontex raised the possibility that traffickers were putting migrants out to sea in collusion with the private ships that recover them and bring them to Italy "like taxis". The allegation was slammed by MSF as "extremely serious and harmful". It said the NGOs were "not the cause but a response" to a humanitarian crisis, and had been forced to act because Frontex was failing to prevent migrant deaths at sea. Despite rough winter seas, the departures from Libya have continued unabated. Over 5,000 migrants have been saved since Sunday, bringing the number brought to Italy since the start of 2017 to over 21,000, a sharp rise on the same period in previous years. — AFP
