Being able to detect magnetic anomalies in the ocean is something that the US Navy has obviously had a huge interest in for quite a while. For decades they used an aircraft called the P3 Orion that was equipped with a MAD (magnetic anomaly detector) that helped it search for submarines. However, the P3 is now getting replaced by the P8 Poseidon which is not equipped with a MAD.
Good goal, wrong policy. Economists very much agree an Earned Income Tax Credit is a far more efficient way to address this. Minimum wages have some unfavorable impacts on the economy, and are very poorly targeted (many minimum wage workers are either teenagers or belong to high income households, while the unemployed and underemployed that need help the most receive little to no benefit).

“Followers” used to be called “fans” and I still feel that was a better name, because it says exactly what it means. You follow someone because you are a fan of their work either because their specialised subject interests you, or their writing is so good you don’t care what it’s about, you just have to read everything they write. I have thousands of followers, but I follow a mere handful and some of them don’t follow me.PegCole17posted 3 years agoin reply to thisCongratulations on reaching that landmark, Goatfury.
