Nowhere did I claim students would get credit for completing assignments with answers that correspond to religious teachings. But, say, as in that evolution scenario you suggest, if a student chooses “False” because they were taught God made the world in 6 days, a teacher marking that wrong would be literally penalizin Read more

Yeah “Alexa” would comprise its voice recordings, since that’s part of the service. And you access them through the Alexa app. The best parallel I could think of was Google; how you don’t have to spell out “Google’s search engine...” for people to understand.

Sorry to ruin your attempt at a dunk, but I meant my plain old non-smart doorbell. I don’t have a Nest, just a lot of social anxiety lol.

I can see why you’d think that (I honestly did for a while too), but nope they’re completely separate from each other. Imgur was created with Reddit users specifically in mind, but is still an independent project.

Thanks for the catch! Grabbed the wrong dateline, though I’ll admit I’ve lost faith in my sense of time ever since someone reminded me Captain Marvel came out this year.

It’s ironic you’d call that last paragraph an attack, considering it simply refers to sentiments the president has expressed multiple times. I guess saying “Trump literally said this” is a partisan statement now.

Redundant =/ incorrect though. It’s definitely a colloquialism, I’ll give you that, but a grammatically sound one.

There’s nothing grammatically incorrect about that sentence though...?

I mean, a pair of wired Apple headphones costs like $10-$20. With that in mind I’d definitely consider opting for the $200 pair (not to mention an additional $70 every time you lose one, and you will) to be a splurge.

Facebook’s been quiet so far on how this change might affect groups or pages with lots of engagement, though I wouldn’t be surprised if this round of testing is also them trying to figure out if a one-size approach fits the platform or if they need to tailor how/when Likes are hidden in those specific cases.
