I was thinking about this from another angle. If we are going to get bigger snowstorms, the white stuff lasts longer even if the overall snowfall is constant. That would increase albedo.

Has anyone studied that? 
The long term trend from albedo is that of cooling. In recent years, satellite measurements of albedo show little to no trend.

If one wishes to chair or sit on a science and technology committee, one should have some basis if understanding if the subject matter. Unfortunately many top officials in today's GOP lack that understanding, and refuse to acquire it. This guy needs to resign and be replaced immediately.

Does it matter?

We had music long before we had a "music industry" and we'll have it long after it is gone.
Do streaming services like Spotify and Pandora hurt musicians? Artists, established and aspiring, can flow both ways on the debate, but there’s no denying that the new model has had a dramatic impact on the industry and its profits. Hari Sreenivasan reports. Continue reading →

+Tony Lawrence , +Rich Tosi -  If streaming helps talented independent artists get a fair slice of the pie then streaming is a wave of the present for the future and that's a good thing.  If the record companies have to go on a diet and eat smaller pie pieces - sure they'll hoop and holler about it.  But they'll adapt and still be glad if they're making money.   I say "Mo power to the independents!"

'Any corporation that accounts for at least 80 percent or more of the pay someone gets, or receives from that worker at least 20 percent of his or her earnings, should be presumed to be that person’s “employer.”'

I agree.
The most significant legal trend in the American workforce is “independent contractors,” which lessens companies' costs of having full-time employees. But is the trend contributing directly to low pay, irregular hours and job insecurity?

Clueless Bill looks to "incentives" for business.  That isn't going to help.  What will HAVE to happen is the taking over of robotic production by government. We're going to have to invent a new kind of socialism to survive.
 
No, people don't realize that their 'secure' job will soon be replaced by a robot. The idea that a robot can't think as well as a human being and can't emulate the 'human touch' has gone to join the other myths in the sky.

QUOTE: Big changes are coming to the labor market that people and governments aren't prepared for, Bill Gates believes.

QUOTE: He's not the only one predicting this gloomy scenario for workers. In January, the Economist ran a big profile naming over a dozen jobs sure to be taken over by robots in the next 20 years, including telemarketers, accountants and retail workers.

COMMENT: Time to start talking about a universal wage not a minimum wage.

However, he's actually a very nice man and his wife Ginny is lovely also. We've been coming here since 1989 (before Dan and Ginny owned it) and simply wouldn't consider anywhere else. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is always great and our fellow members are wonderful people. If you have any trouble with Dan (very unlikely unless you are breaking rules), just say "Yes, Oh Mighty Master!" and he will laugh. Seriously - don't let that bad review cause you to miss a wonderful resort.

We had Nick G. in for a furnace problem a few weeks ago and because he was so professional on that, we had him back to remove, reseal and put back a badly installed kitchen sink. The cost was definitely more than than it should have been ($200 for about an hour's work), but on the other hand the job was done professionally, cleanly, and quickly. That's worth paying extra for, at least for me. We had another local plumber in a few weeks ago to put in a shutoff valve on our washing machine: they gouged up our floor moving the machine and would have broken the door of the washer if I hadn't yelled at them that they had it jammed - I do not get the feeling that ARS would ever have let that happen. With other workman we have to watch like hawks, laying out old towels so they don't scratch things with their tools - again, Nick did that automatically. It looks to me that he's always thinking about stuff like that. Little details like wearing pull-on boot covers and spreading out a cloth matter. So - ARS is not the cheapest, but if you want quality and care, I definitely recommend them. With cheap, you get what you pay for.
