For Anarchy, State, and Utopia (1974) Nozick received a National Book Award in category Philosophy and Religion.[2] There, Nozick argues that only a minimal state "limited to the narrow functions of protection against force, theft, fraud, enforcement of contracts, and so on" could be justified without violating people's rights. For Nozick, a distribution of goods is just if brought about by free exchange among consenting adults from a just starting position, even if large inequalities subsequently emerge from the process. Nozick appealed to the Kantian idea that people should be treated as ends (what he termed 'separateness of persons'), not merely as a means to some other end.

if I rate an answer it gives rate 1 which is correct. But if I'll take my rate back it shows -1 instead of 0.

In computer programming, a nested function (or nested procedure or subroutine) is a function which is defined within another function, the enclosing function. Due to simple recursive scope rules, a nested function is itself invisible outside of its immediately enclosing function, but can see (access) all local objects (data, functions, types, etc.) of its immediately enclosing function as well as of any function(s) which, in turn, encloses that function. The nesting is theoretically possible to any ideas of depth, although only a few levels are normally used in practical programs.

much of the reaction from journalists and the left mischaracterized the memo as an argument against diversity efforts. this is explicitly contradicted by text in the memo.

A public address is embedded inside the output “script” so that it can only be spent using the private key corresponding to that public address. If we consider this output to be a database row, what we have is a database with per-row permissions which are based on public key cryptography. Furthermore, every transaction presents a publicly auditable proof that its creator(s) had the right to delete/modify its prior rows. This (I believe) is a genuine novelty in database technology.

These permissions are inherent in a public key crypto blockchain which means enterprise participants don't need expensive verification for this.

We predicted that inspectors, who generally have a moderate salary and means, would experience empathy toward customers similar to them in income (i.e., those driving standard cars) and envy toward customers who are clearly wealthier than them (i.e., those driving luxury cars). In turn, we expected these emotions to lead to illicit helping and hurting behavior, respectively. And, indeed, we found that for a significant number of inspectors, fraud levels were much higher in support of customers with more affordable vehicles.

Portland cement is the most common type of cement in general use around the world as a basic ingredient of concrete, mortar, stucco, and non-speciality grout. It was developed from other types of hydraulic lime in England in the mid 19th century, and usually originates from limestone. It is a fine powder, produced by heating limestone and clay minerals in a kiln to form clinker, grinding the clinker, and adding small amounts of other materials.
