When I hear "data driven", I take the safety off my Browning.
Recent developments forbid that the NSA export the captured data from the Eurosphere and keep it in a European Datacentre. I'm sure it can be recovered.
These are people who have been trained to think that problems yield to willpower and a forceful attitude, that being "gung-ho", "aggressive" and a "team player" will ensure success. The lack of neocortical reasoning power often does not help. It's like a special school for attack dog PHBs from hell with a medal ribbon. Never work for these guys.
"A Chernobyl rat may taste like pumpkin pie but I wouldn't know because I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfucker. Pigs are processed into bacon, and sausage. That's a filthy animal. I don't want to have nothing to do with any piece of an animal that gives you cancer when you eat it."
You seem to fear the Karma Police?
It is a sad fact of life that I know vegans who got cancer....
Cancer is the preferred failure mode of assemblies of self-reproducing, weakly error-checking von Neumann machines.
It must be yet another Jewish/Muslim Conspiracy against the staple food of Central Europe / Asia
Yep, it's him alright! He's going down!!
...it would be a lucky hit though.

It's actually the hand of Allen Dulles.
The useful baud rate is 1kbps - or about 2Gbps of internet 'data'.
That doesn't make any sense.
Baud rate is always order of bps rate. The bps rate is not magically 6 orders of magnitude above (unless you are using millions of distinguishable values, which I rather doubt in this context)
Hm! This artist's impression of a menacing globulous space rock being visted by New Horizons, vaguely squamous yet ruguous, uncannily lit from the wrong side while the sun is lost in a campy lens flare demands EXTRA OMINUOUS MUSIC.
Isn't that some Frank Herbert?

In some ancient Hebrew myths ... somewhere in the neighbourhood of Jerusalem
Tough to find as Jerusalem was not even on the map yet? Before David the youthful bruiser set up his local variant of the yurt, there must have been two sheep and a donkey and possibly an olive tree at that place.

Should be the "data object", right?
The World today is full of such questions...
Finally, there’s the most important aspect of IBM’s identical Big Data approaches to death and customer service: Both are extremely powerful systems that have escaped any kind of human, democratic control. As Ellsberg puts it, the drone study is “unintelligible to anyone who might ask, ‘to what end is all this?’ or ‘do we have the right to be doing this?’ or ‘is this making us more secure, in the mid- to long-term, or on balance less so?’ or ‘is this creating more people who hate us — including the families of EKIAs (unintended victims) — and wish to harm us, than it is eliminating?’”
So..... where is that European Salesforce Center?

So if you feel a little pain in the left elbow, it might not only be artritis?
The subsequent tsunami is likely to flood everything west of I-5.
Today's news say that what is for dinner is pointless brinkmanship with Russia in Syria (I didn't get we have a manadate to unilaterally impose no-fly zones in Syria, but so a superpower has its rights), possibly followed by a fat nuclear exchange.
Better order a new "duck and cover" instruction set at amazon.
It's like stockmarket crashes....
NO-ONE COULD HAVE PREDICTED!!
In short, the very four digits that Amazon considers unimportant enough to display in the clear on the web are precisely the same ones that Apple considers secure enough to perform identity verification.
I don't understand. Am I not supposed to get asked "security questions" and at amazon I have even labeled them "security question #1", "security question #2", "security question #3"...
Seriously, it's on the level of Garfield. Who writes code with a headset on? What's with the stupid metrosexual beard look? Who says "finished" after writing anything more than a 6-line script?
That comic is bad.

Hitler suicides a SECOND time.
It's the US gummint trying to raise money.
I also have an Arc of the Covenant, slightly used, for a low price...
You probably could have had an U-Boat thrown in for that kind of money, back then.
There's a relationship between stress and cancer
Oh yeah? Citation needed. Now.
Catbert thinks you are lacking in Team Spirit.
Pretty sure ammonium nitrate will now warrant an entry in the DHS database.
These ain't those olden times anymore.
> hit with a Russian-made Buk surface-to-air missile
No surprises here, but 'twas done with an old-style 9M38M1 likely from the Ukrainian arsenal. Could be that Mother Russia-leaning separatists got ahold of it and let loose at the first sight of a blip on badly calibrated screens. Or maybe not. Most of this story is very murky, if not amerrimurky.
Who is keeping the quartermaster lists in Ukraine?
GAME OF THRONES!
the Greek government objects strenuously to the modern state of Macedonia on the grounds that ancient Macedonia was Greek
Implying that modern fubar appendage of europe has anything in common with "Magna Græcia" (also, the "Magna" is there for a reason, like in "Greater Germany". One could argue that Poles build the German Empire but better not ...)
But old Alex was Macedonian. Not the same as Greek. It's like saying a guy from Mexico is American.
Leave "Twilight" out of this, don't ruin everything!
And now your latent suspicion that she was actually suicided has been awakened.
We believe most Germans look like this.
The reverse medal of "all asians look the same"
end up slightly slower than the original planet, thus forming a tail
I am not convinced. The statistical process should make the debris faster and slower relative to the central mass with equal probability.
Also, remember the Gas Torus Mnemonic: "East takes you out, out takes you west, west takes you in, in takes you east, port and starboard bring you back"
If the debris slow down relative to the central mass, they will fall in and will overtake the planet.
Why is there a "trail" though?
Shouldn't the debris widen around the original cerestroid in a more cloud-like fashion?
In a country in which Hillary The Liberal Bombardier can be a presidential candidate with her only asset being that she's a feminal state-power-worshipper instead of a male state-power-worshipper, anything can happen.
John Brunner was a genius. One could do worse than re-read his "Shockwaver Rider" / "Stand on Zanzibar" / "The Sheep Look Up" trilogy. Though influenced somewhat by 68' hippiedom, he saw it coming.
devote the necessary resources for this
i.e. form a commitee of well-paid worthies that are too senile / not under enough control to vote for the next aggressive movement in some cross-oceanic country which we have always been at war with since yesterday?
Cool. It's like Indiana Jones lighting his vintage flashlight and discovering that he's actually IN the pit with the flesh.eating roaches described in the papyrus.
the director ... suggests opening diplomatic channels with the theocracy
Hire that man!
"This month the old legal system collapsed, but the foundation long ago had crumbled. In recent years it has been apparent that a new century requires a new privacy framework. It's time to go build it."
You stupid fucks even dropped the ball on software patents back in the 90s to gain a little "Market Advantage", literally driving over people's best interests.
Now you pretend you can create a legal Potemkin Village of the Holy Privacy Unicorn which will be respected by out-of-control superbly financed and extremely metastasized state actors?
GO DIE IN A CORNER.
