A child might witness his family being murdered and he might take upon his self to go and kill this murder because of this law then he would get put to death for taking this punishment into his own hands.
"This causal-comparative study examined the relationship of school uniforms to attendance, academic achievement, and discipline referral rates, using data collected from two high schools in rural southwest Georgia county school systems, one with a uniforms program and one without a uniforms program. After accounting for race and students with disabilities status, School A (with uniforms) had significantly better attendance and somewhat fewer minor behavior infractions, but trended lower in standardized math scores and more intermediate and major behavioral infractions than School B (without uniforms). These findings failed to demonstrate an unambiguous advantage of school uniforms, consistent with the mixed results across reports in the published literature. Implications and suggestions for further research are detailed."
Because if you use a decent password safe (or encrypted passwords in Firefox with a master password, for example), the attacker has to grab that storage and crack it open. Certainly, if they have a keylogger installed they'll get the safe the first time you type in the master password, but if they crack the *machine in use after the master password has already been entered*, they have to compromise the application to get the password safe contents, or wait for you to open the safe again.
(1) I find the discussion on entering passwords a little disconcerting when quite a few comments include the use of passwords for WEP. Are there still a lot of wireless systems using WEP given how nearless worthless WEP is?
Anyone that's using a Mac today that has a wireless home network set up with WPA2 Personal security gets a dialog box when they logon to the network. The dialog asks for the password and just below the password box is a check box called "Show password." This is handy, useful, and not at all confusing, and in my opinion, totally appropriate.
It may not be possible to put an end to the horror of gun death just as it is not possible to eradicate any type of crime completely. But we can definitely do something about arresting the occurrence of gun deaths. Gun death is a consequence of gun ownership and hence any attempt to arrest the former has to involve controlling the latter. Gun crime statistics have been repeatedly showing that unrestrained gun ownership invariably leads to an increase in gun crime. But in spite of heaps and heaps of evidence unearthed by gun death statistics, a solution to the problem of gun death still remains elusive.
(2) Is a usability nightmare. I wish Bruce and Nielson would stop asking for this, because its a bad, BAD idea. Some users won't know what the checkbox is meant for, and will then click on it and get scared when their password appears in plain text. Other users will not notice that the password is plain text until they start typing it in one of those situations. For 99% of situations where passwords are used, this is a stupid idea and should not be implemented. The only case (the ONLY case) where I'd support having this option, is for typing in long things like WEP keys or passphrases. Guess what, web forum accounts or whatever, do not count. And your bank should never offer this "feature". I don't want to ever, EVER see my banking password in clear text, anywhere. Not even on my own computer monitor.
show that gun ownership in the United States is disproportionately high. This can be seen from the fact that people living in the US possess about half of all the privately owned guns in the world. The abnormality of this can be understood if we consider that the US population is only 5 percent of the population of the world. If 5 percent of the people in the world own 50 percent of the guns in the world, it is certainly a matter for concern.
So was I wrong? Maybe. Okay, probably. Password masking definitely improves security; many readers pointed out that they regularly use their computer in crowded environments, and rely on password masking to protect their passwords. On the other hand, password masking reduces accuracy and makes it less likely that users will choose secure and hard-to-remember passwords, I will concede that the password masking trade-off is more beneficial than I thought in my snap reaction, but also that the answer is not nearly as obvious as we have historically assumed.
People who are opposed to gun control just ignore gun death as a problem. For them, owning guns is a right conferred on them by the 2nd amendment. The fact that about 99 percent of the 2nd amendment resulted from the inputs given by people with no legal background is of no concern to these people. These people also use the concept of democracy to oppose any kind of control. They need to understand that democracy can be preserved only by preventing tyranny and that the tyranny of gun death can pose a severe threat to democracy.
2) Gun death statistics for different countries were expressed as the number of s to a population of a million and these figures compared for different countries. This comparison showed the United States getting ranked below South Africa. This information also suggests that gun control pros and cons are overwhelmingly in favor of gun control.
This is a GREAT pro and con research study that can be found in the Spring/Fall 2006 issue of the scholarly Journal of Research on Christian Education. Administrators, faculty, staff, students, and parents give their views on school uniforms within two private schools. The results are very interesting in that the students differ on some main issues of school uniforms than what parents and school officials believe. For example, the parents and school officials believe that school uniforms eliminate competition, but several students felt this way:
