A quick bit of venting regarding Apple's replacement for iPhoto, Photos. As a photo editor, it's fine. But as a photo management system IT IS THE WORST SOFTWARE EVER RELEASED!.

If a photo management system does not let you organize your images in ascending or descending order chronologically, a pretty basic requirement, it's not a management system at all. It's lame coding. Plain and simple. Apple's developers should be embarrassed by this utterly sophomoric failure.

If I'm wrong, and I hope I am, please tell me how to manage/sort photos in Photos in ascending and/or descending order.

Doesn't Finder have that ability? Just put all your photos into their corresponding folders and it shouldn't be a problem.

"This speaks to some larger questions about political corruption. How do you prove it? Maybe the uranium people simply cared deeply about the undeniably good work the foundation is doing, and would have received the help and approvals anyway. In cases like this, though, how does the public maintain its trust?"

I truly hope the Democrats come up with a better candidate than Clinton or this independent will have to vote for the Green Party...again.

"These brines are made possible mainly by the presence of perchlorates, which are found all over Mars. Perchlorates, made of a chlorine and four oxygen atoms, have two talents that make them ideal for trapping liquid water. Like other salts, perchlorates lower the freezing temperature of water, keeping it liquid even in ice-cold climes. But they also have this ability to pull water molecules out of the air and render them liquid. It’s a process with a strangely beautiful name: deliquescence."

Beautiful, indeed.

Tasting the air and testing the temperature, NASA ’s Mars rover Curiosity has shown that there could potentially be salty water currently beneath the Red Planet’s surface.

Prosit!

+Morio Murase A good stout, well poured, is a wonderful treat, indeed. But I do like my IPAs. I think these days every brewer must produce an IPA, which is why we have so many. And I am grateful. ;-)

"But anyway, this was Rand Paul’s first 24 hours. A presidential campaign with this many glitches just out of the box is in a wee bit of trouble. Maybe Rand Paul should’ve eductated himself a little more on how to hire competent staffers and how to effectively roll out a presidential campaign."

Competence starts at the top of an organization. So does incompetence.

The organization may have broken the law also in that it told the IRS it did not “engage in direct or indirect political campaign activities on behalf of or in opposition to candidates for public office”. The nonprofit does report such activity to the FEC, and frequently broadcasts its political might to both voters and elected leaders.

Ooops

I think if Hilary Clinton is going to deserve her party's nomination, she needs to discuss/debate her views with a progressive Democrat (like Warren) to convince progressive party members she won't completely screw them once in office. If not...
Even as Hillary Clinton takes on a Warren-esque bent, progressives ramp up their efforts to draft Massachusetts Senator

Coauthor Daniel R. Brooks explains: “It’s not that there’s going to be one ‘Andromeda Strain’ that will wipe everybody out on the planet,” he said, referring to the deadly fictional pathogen. But he warns: “There are going to be a lot of localized outbreaks that put a lot of pressure on our medical and veterinary health systems. There won’t be enough money to keep up with all of it. It will be the death of a thousand cuts.”

Don't sugar-coat it, doc
