Samsung Electronics coughs up £55m for cancer-stricken workers

Environ International Corp

> commissioned a report from Environ International Corp, a Washington DC-based consulting firm which claimed that levels in its factories were safe.

Because traditionally all the environmentalists have been cleaned out of sammie's song?

Or because as American they are free to lie with impunity?

Someone tell me how they could give an AOK even a USAOK without knowing what the chemicals are, that the filters have just been installed and that the boiler suits and sweat hoods are not for people safety.

Junior defence staffer on trial for 'posting secret dossier to 4chan'

I. Aproveofitspendingonspecificprojects

improperly disclosed.

There is nothing wrong with being 12 that a dose of patience wouldn't cure. Adults sometimes do the most stupid things. I got banned from Reddit for forecasting an earthquake on a geology? forum.

I laughed at the stupidity this man got into. Once you steal something you are marked in your heart and you can't take it back.

An hour later the public post was deleted after other 4chan inhabitants, unsurprisingly, declared it "fake and gay," Hopefully you have never been there that too scars without healing but it isn't as bad as pornography you can't unsee that.

It is reported. Scerba is accused of uploading the 15-page document in October 2012. The leak was apparently spotted by a former Australian intelligence agency staffer, who alerted the authorities. So even removed material is seen by keen by-passers who should behave a lot better than they do.

According to court records, the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory heard last Thursday that “sensitive information contained in a classified report by the Defence Intelligence Organisation" was allegedly "improperly disclosed.

A double whammy as posting it on line was as stupid as a very silly thing but posting it to a bunch of 4-year olds was worse than posting anything to Reddit.

There are so many good things to learn and do and see online. Wait until to are too old to care before you go looking at indecent things.

The galling thing was having ignorant fools disrespect you but it turns out I got the magnitude wrong but no one knew that when I was banned.

Quite right

The first thing Hitler did is compile a list. Stalin never bothered he just chose ratios of people depending on what mood he was in/how the trains were running. While it is always good to have a list it's just as good making it up as you go .

No it didn't they had that war with the sheriff of Youtube in the Grapes of Wrath revolution. But at least the Injuns managed to escape from the Oklahoma concentration camps.

The Colorado has been suffering from extraction for decades (maybe about the same era) and they built a giant U-shaped motorway to divert any rainwater out of lost angleiron so fast it doesn't touch the ground.

San Diego wouldn't have a problem had the environmentalists from non San Diego regions come and voted San Diego close its power plant then the saw the drought coming and buggered off to not build fairy wind castles and glass palaces that run on sunlight and antifreeze. Suppose you kick the politician that licked their arses out of office then sue the bastards for damages.

If you uses marsh lakes with mussel beds and reeds it will clean up effectively. I'm not sure you can convince people to drink it but most people drink Thames river water after it's been used three or four time. The trick is: Don't tell them about it.

The trick worked in Chernobyl too, apparently it killed thousands but Russia only reported some 60 or so. They thought they were going to get away with it but the Swedes noticed it made their shoes dirty.

You don't quite understand Thatcherism do you?

Thatcherism is that you sell all the socialist schemes to bring water to the unwashed to bring money to the washed. Problem solved. Since it is legal they don't even need a laundry. It works best under compression where you change all the vehicle manufacturers into one giant lame duck and offer it to China or was it India?

Someone had to set up monopoly in the poorer countries, they'd never cope just selling our shirts.

Nuclear have life

I went around the Cemaes Bay reactor before they shut it. They got a license extended to keep it open because the graphite core was uncontaminated. Then Thatcher went to war with the miners then shortly after they closed a spate of nuclear power plants. Since then I have been looking at lots of videos on Thorium reactors and it has been a mind opener.

Large firms in the business of farming plutonium residues do so only with the connivance of corporate and political scum. The actual grunts: nuclear physicists have no say in what is best policy or why. Harvesting spent plutonium is a racket that will continue to make money for all concerned for 24,100^2 years until we start building thorium plant and shooting large power company/environmental agency management.

If yellow-cake turns out to be the stone cut out "not by human hands" we can only tell ourselves that we have none to blame but our wise men. And that we chose them. I am not looking forward to being right but it is nice to think that it might be nearly over. I am going to have to start behaving. I certainly don't want poetic justice I'd much rather have forgiveness.

Gangsters running on vodka.

What is special about Chernobyl is that it was a nuclear pile run by a country with a dark ages mentality in the Soviet era, built without containment or any safety measures and run by monkeys; yet it only killed everyone ever killed in accidents at nuclear reactors.

But it was not even an accident. It was sabotage by someone who had a poor translation of The Simpsons, a "People's черный рынок" version and missed all the nuances.

Spanish flies.

I'm impressed that Spain had learned how to build a set of windmills and use half of them in a storm. That is remarkable engineering.

FYI in Britain inclement cold weather is related to increased volcanic activity. A bête noire. I not only hate the cold the weather but the charts inevitably bugger about. If you would like to know how to interpret them, ask and ye shall receive. (But ask loudly I listen quietly.)

The "Rolls Canardly" effect.

The idea of buying a failing under-performer and cutting off its testicles just so you have a machine you can sell in Woolworth's is a well known bad idea. Once a company saddles itself with anything like Compaq, it's time to bolt the stable door and take the horses to market.

Re: Americana

From time to time a storm of whatever sort rips through televisionland and all the queer ninnies come out of the woodwork. I'm presuming this is a national culture thing. Are there enough pragmatists there to make chimpanzocracy possible?

Or is scatocracy and financial ruin the inevitable result?

I imagine you'd be fairly immune to it if you are still using Windows but it was a culture shock to me. Please be careful.

Re: The taxpayers didn't "burn Debtroit"

Nobody engages in high finance because of altruism. In recession national economies are controlled by their own wild politics. And the most innocuous statement from a foolish politician can wipe millions from a firm's share prices.

We saw it from Margaret Thatcher's fumblings and we saw it from the chimpanzee's bumblings and when the people running the Autotrades at the demise of Detroit all turned up for government handouts in their company jets.

The only way out of financial close-down is if someone inspired comes up with a good idea and people are willing to back them. What might have saved Stoke on Trent, two decades back is someone supplying free electricity.

It might happen to Mitsubishi if the directors of Tepco can be convinced (or forced) to do the "Honourable Thing" and leave the way open for thorium based generation by people who actually know what they are doing. (That is: not anyone from Microsoft.)

Rotten to the core

The ability for the average prawn to get any use out of HSBC 's online services supposing they forget any one of a long list of unrecoverably hard to remember code words/passwords is starting to bother me now that Apple have some unspecific hook to my money. I almost read something about it before deciding to go to another machine rather than wait in the queue this afternoon. (Both machines were borked, so I suppose I should have mulled it.) I suppose I could always go in tomorrow and reassure myself it isn't true. /Or open an account at the bank on the corner. ANY EFFFING Corner.

Ford's 400,000-car recall could be the tip of an auto security iceberg

Re: The more of this I read

I recall a friend showing me the points from a Nissan in the days just before electronic ignition. The car had been used around the clock to within limits a driving school car would have. After going around the clock a fair bit he took it in for its service and the mechanic found the points worn down to the bone.

He had not noticed any problem with the engine as the car was firing perfectly.

He had thought the car was running with electronic ignition and was surprised to find he needed to replace them. Cut to an adjacent Talbot whose computer problems required it rot away in a yard waiting for parts. I have never been in any hurry to get the latest greatest.

I can still remember the thin skin of platinum that was all that was left of the Nissan's points. I was duly, truly amazed.

Re: Isn't all engineering progress like this?

Yes; if you think the Spitfire was the icon of WW2 you'd be surprised how well designed it was that by 1939 they still had to find a way of producing them. Kind of highlights British Management to think that the RAF thought it was so good by then they ceased all thought of alternative specie.

After that we invented the motor bike and did it so well that everyone was the same one. And continued being the same one until the motor cycle industry went broke trying to sell motorcycles that didn't work in the rain.
