Question by EAslugger: is a regular person aloud to buy a monkey like one of those trained medium sized ones and if so where?
hi i am looking to see if i can buy a monkey and if so where

Best answer:

Answer by Kiwiiii
You can, but it is really dangerous, because if the monkey has lived with you for years, it is still a wild animal and can attack at anytime. There is a lady who got attacked by an chimpanzee, and it was very scary because it scratched her face and everything was bad, so if I were you I wouldn’t get one just for safety reasons.

PostHeaderIcon Mars One is BS they are running it like a reality show?

Question by I’m a Turtle: Mars One is BS they are running it like a reality show?
“Mars One is a not-for-profit organization that will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars in 2023 through the integration of existing, readily available technologies from industry leaders world-wide. Unique in its approach, Mars One intends to fund this decade-long endeavor by involving the whole world as the audience of an interactive, televised broadcast of every aspect of this mission, from launch to landing to living on Mars.”

“In 2022, several months before departure, the Mars One selection committee will determine which groups in training are ready to depart to Mars. We expect at least six groups will be ready for the trip. Each of these groups will have obtained the qualifications and skills necessary for the trip to Mars, so in that respect it should not matter who goes first. However, the symbolic and historic significance of this issue is a different matter altogether. Who will be the first four people on Mars? Who will get to be the first human in history to set foot on the Red Planet and be known for it forever? Because our mission is humankind’s mission, we will make this a democratic decision. The people of Earth will have a vote which group of four will be the first Earth ambassadors on Mars.”

“Mars One will conduct a global search to find the best candidates for the first human mission to Mars in 2023. The astronaut selection process will be announced in the first half of 2013 through an announcement on our website, social media channels and the mailing list. Mars One is an international organization – we encourage anyone in the world who is 18 years or older to apply for the selection program.

The application process consists of four rounds.

Round 1: All candidates must submit their application to Mars One online. The online application will consist of general information about the applicant, a motivational letter, a resume and a one minute video in which the applicant answer some given questions and explains why he or she should be among the first humans who set foot on Mars. Approved application videos and letters of motivation will be available to be watched by everyone on the internet, unless an applicant decides against making his or her application video public. At the end of round one, a team of Mars One experts will decide which applicants will pass to round two.

Round 2: Candidates for round 2 will need to get a medical statement of good health from their physician. The applicant will be invited to meet with a Mars One selection committee in his or her region. After conducting an interview with the candidates, the selection committees determines who will pass to round three.

Round 3: This round is the national selection round, which could be broadcasted on TV and internet in countries around the world. In each country, 20-40 applicants will participate in challenges that demonstrate their suitability to become one of the first humans on Mars. The audience will select one winner per country and Mars One experts will select additional participants to continue to round four.

Round 4: Those who pass to round four will be expected to be able to communicate in English. The applicants will be responsible to reach this level of English. Round 4 will be an international event that will be broadcasted throughout the world. The Mars One selection committee will create international groups from the individual candidates. The groups will be expected to demonstrate their ability to live in harsh living conditions, and work together under difficult circumstances. The groups will receive their first short term training in a copy of the Mars outpost. From the first selection series, of which Round 1 starts in 2013, six groups of four will become full time employees of the Mars One astronaut corps, after which they will train for their mission. Whole teams and individuals might be selected out during training when they prove not to be suitable for the mission.”

This sounds like a “reality” show. What they mean is, if you “look funny”, are not good-looking – “sexy” – are not “nice enough”, or are not “perfect” (whatever that means) in the ignorant masses eyes, you are going to get “voted off”.

Well, these contestants are going to work hard. And it’s not survival skills, brain training or academics. It’s working your *** off to become a person you are not so you can gain the public’s approval.

Thank You 5stars for the top answer!

Best answer:

Answer by Exeter
To be honest, that’s not a good business to get into. You would need to offer a service that customers can’t get elsewhere.

Big retailers like Gamestop, Best Buy, etc. have buying power. They have so much market share that they can demand lower prices from game publishers. Your little store doesn’t have that buying power, so you can’t possibly compete with the big retailers on price. Plus, video games are increasingly being sold digitally directly from the publishers. That doesn’t leave much room for an independent video game retailer.

PostHeaderIcon What is the general attitude like toward gay people in France compared to that of the United States?

Question by m-cha: What is the general attitude like toward gay people in France compared to that of the United States?
I’m just curious, because France seems to be significantly more open to sexuality and more left-wing in general than it is here. But more importantly, on a social level, how is homosexuality seen by the general public? Is it a “big deal” like it is to many people here in the US? Like here, even my friends will point out two guys walking together in the mall or on the street and say something about them being gay, like it’s a really major defining characteristic. Is it any different in France?

Best answer:

Answer by un exile
we respect gay people , I think we are more tolerant than the US citizens about this

W.H. Collects Web Users’ Data Without Notice

Audrey Hudson

EXCLUSIVE:

The White House is collecting and storing comments and videos placed on its social-networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube without notifying or asking the consent of the site users, a failure that appears to run counter to President Obama’s promise of a transparent government and his pledge to protect privacy on the Internet.

Marc Rotenberg, president of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, said the White House signaled that it would insist on open dealings with Internet users and, in fact, should feel obliged to disclose that it is collecting such information.

“The White House has not been adequately transparent, particularly on how it makes use of new social media techniques, such as this example,” he said.

Defenders of the White House actions said the Presidential Records Act requires that the administration gather the information and that it was justified in taking the additional step of asking a private contractor to “crawl and archive” all such material. Nicholas Shapiro, a White House spokesman, declined to say when the practice began or how much the new contract would cost.

Susan Cooper, a spokeswoman for National Archives and Records Administration, said the presidential records law applies to “social media” and to public comments “received by the president or immediate staff.”

Mr. Obama signed a memo in January stating that his efforts to maintain an open government would be “unprecedented” and “ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation and collaboration.”

An Obama campaign document on technology pledged that, as president, Mr. Obama “will strengthen privacy protections for the digital age and will harness the power of technology to hold government and business accountable for violations of personal privacy.”

In a June 5, 2008, article in PC Magazine, Mr. Obama said, “The open information platforms of the 21st century can also tempt institutions to violate the privacy of citizens. We need sensible safeguards that protect privacy in this dynamic new world.”

The National Legal and Policy Center, a government ethics watchdog, said archiving the sites would have a “chilling effect” on Web site users who might wish to leave comments critical of the administration.

Ken Boehm, a lawyer and chairman of the center, also disputed that the presidential records law applies, because the comments are pasted onto a third-party Web page and not official correspondence with the president.

“If the White House has nothing to hide, why is this cloaked in secrecy? Why won’t they make the dollar amount this is going to cost public?” Mr. Boehm asked. “I don’t think there is an expectation that this is being captured by the government and saved.”

But Patrice McDermott, director of OpenTheGovernment.org, called the proposal “a positive development because it demonstrates a commitment from the Obama administration to meet its obligations under the Presidential Records Act.”

“Additionally, I am encouraged to see the administration recognizing that it must find a way to handle the ever-expanding amount of data generated electronically. I hope the rest of the executive branch will learn from the president’s leadership on this issue,” Ms. McDermott said.

Shahid Buttar, executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, called for congressional oversight of the practice of collecting data.

“Given the administration’s disappointing secrecy in other contexts, the Bill of Rights Defense Committee encourages Congress to conduct oversight to ensure compliance with the law, maximize transparency and protect individual privacy,” Mr. Buttar said.

According to the law, the term “presidential records” means documentary materials “created or received by the president, his immediate staff or a unit or individual of the Executive Office of the President whose function is to advise and assist the president, in the course of conducting activities which relate to or have an effect upon the carrying out of the constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President.”

“It includes any documentary materials relating to the political activities of the president or members of his staff, but only if such activities relate to or have a direct effect upon the carrying out of constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President,” the law says.

David Almacy, who served as President George W. Bush’s Internet director, said the Bush administration did not use the then-fledgling social-networking sites in the same manner as the Obama White House, except to upload presidential speeches onto iTunes. The White House, however, did archive comments posted to its official Web site.

Yeah. So what? Every website keeps logs of visitors. Every business with any sense keeps archives of email as required by law. Now why wouldn’t any US Government website do the same?

PostHeaderIcon Is there songs that are “social”? Anyone else notice how more social people like social/ party songs?

Question by : Is there songs that are “social”? Anyone else notice how more social people like social/ party songs?
Ok.. I always notice how certain more outgoing or people persons like certain music. Like generally more “party” type of music. Like hip hop and stuff.

Is there like a relationship between the two? I really think there is a relationship. But it just seems curious as to what about those songs is social. Is it the fact that they are upbeat and fun? And people in that environment and those types of people just enjoy more fun music?
