School worker's Facebook post prompts suspension

The truth will out!

I hope they get their facts right and the truth does come out, too many schools, head teachers and governing bodies try to hide the truth. And that does them and the children who want to learn no good at all.

Of course as a non-qual cover she has no hope of claiming the 'academic freedom' to comment a qualified teacher has...one of the problems of using non-qual's to do a teachers job perhaps?

The lies told by some schools and their governing bodies, especially of former grammar schools trading on their past reputations, is much more of an issue!

Yes I am a school govenor.

Worldwide GPS may die in 2010, say US gov

Good!

Perhaps all the arse'oles who rely on their GPS and when it tells them to do something they just do it without even a look to see if anything/anyone else is in the way will reaquire some visual skills and stop running others off the road!

Charges against London tube tourist snapper thrown out

CCTV perv operators?

As Barry, one of my service engineer contacts, told me of a visit to a London Borough Council's CCTV control room: "one of the operators had spotted a rather well endowed young girl, probably about 14-15 and followed her movements using multiple cameras for several minutes as she and her friend walked along the High Road, zooming tight in to appraise her assets several times, even pointing her out to one of the other operators. My opertunity to watch him however was cut short when the shift manger realised I was watching just what was going on and insisted I continue with the repair job elseware, saying under the DPA only authorised CRB checked people should be in the control room". So official acknowlegement of CRB means OK to be a grubby-mit or local grubby-mit peeping tom then!

BBC, Foxtrot Oscar!

Enough of the bullshit, the BBC (Brown's, formerly Bliars Brainwashing Colusionists) is an instrument of the state and state control, feed the proles sport & soap and keep them distracted from the reality of the state of the world. So as its part of what keeps those lying b'stards in power why not just fund the BBC from grubby-mit taxes?

Forget the freedom of the press and the BBC's 'unbiased' reporting, the reality is neither much exist now...BBC Foxtrot Oscar!

Trust?

Seems the issue will be trust after this, perhaps the CCTV systems and Police body/hat cam's will also be evidence in this case...What ever the truth, more and more people don't trust the Police.

Still THEY (H.O./MET Comissioner) don't trust the MET with TASER's, with good reason maybe?

Superfast-charging batteries? Whoa there, MIT

EV = Green?

EV cars are green? No I don't think so, the resourse to build, run and dispose is far from green.

Displaced pollution is the best they can claim.

BBC botnet investigation turns hacks into hackers

Public interest?

"Could a defence of 'in the public interest' be used?..."

Well the BBC are skilled at breaking the law and using the above defence, following the actions of someone, whom a Scottish Police Force should have disarmed long before if they'd had the balls for it, on this day in '96 there was a whole raft of legislation banning 'handguns'. In the months following that ban the BBC contrived to illegally possess by illegal importation and by deception and theft 'handguns' and other firearms, their defence 'in the pubilc interest'.

Whilst C&E and the Police 'investigated' no-one went to jail or even ended up in court. The BBC still glorifies violence and by showing just how easy it was to illegally import firearms acted to promote that illegal trade.

Ah but Bliars, now Browns Brainwashing Colusionists are part of the states machinery, and prosecuting them wouldn't be in the states interest...

Military bases, sure, but they're already blanked out, aren't they?

No, most UK bases are now in reduced resolution and/or older data, 5 years ago I needed an overhead of Bisley for a Scouting event, no problem I used Google Earth, the NEW Lord Roberts Centre was clearly visible. Doing an updated overhead last year and its missing, along with any new detail of Pirbright camp, Google having rolled back their data set by 10 years...Microsofts version is just very low res.

Of course Google's supplying gov't agencies the full upto date stuff, and the drive-by data, as you'd expect as they employ ex-spooks to sell their wares and interface with gov't depts.

Google is NOT your friend.

Euro-style GM Volt design revealed

What a load or carp!

"You seem to have forgotten that the original Willys Jeep was an American product and much, much better than anything produced by Europe for many yearrs after".

Err, the Willys Jeep was a Morris design, so it was British!

As to any of these displaced pollution (mains charged) and enhanced pollution (due to build and disposal factors, not 'fuel consumption') vehicles, you can keep them, my 25 year old 110 Land-Rover beats the lot of them hands down by comparason!

More complex, more problems...

Having several i-pods in the family, and all sorts of problems with them/i-tunes I wouldn't buy ANY of them now, cheap mp3 players you an afford to throw away WHEN not if they fail is the best way for me. I can't even update my i-book to use i-tunes now as Apple seem to have a deliberate no backwards compatability policy 'you need to update your i-book sir, buying a new one is the only way to update'...Foxtrot Oscar Apple!

Customs warns of killer consoles

Market differential...

Thats what this is about, the UK price is what the RETAILERS think the market can stand, Nintendo probably make a bit more, but most is the RETAILERS profit.

I worked for a major electronics importer in the 80's, factory gate price for one item was ~£16 each, add some shipping costs and import duty + vat and a 50% mark up ~£35, the TRADE price was ~£90 and RETAIL ~£185!

Grey market items are legal imports not supported by manufacturer bought elseware and shipped in, legal in the US but effectively illegal here because of the CE mark requirement.

Perhaps its the short fall of VAT and import duty thats behind the Customs activity!

New terror guidelines on photography

neil
Black Helicopters

A couple of things...

Ranking Google relevance By Luther Blissett

"When the Google chariot has been everywhere and photographed everything, the terrorist opportunities will be instantly identifiable by the blanks."

They already reuse older data to protect potential targets, a few years ago I used a Google Earth image of the New layout at Bisley so the Scouts could find the New NSRA building, following year they'd reverted as Pirbright was too clearly shown to data 10 years out of date.

Obviously, By Steve Foster

"We need the photographic equivalent to the cycling event/group Critical Mass."

Yes, maybe, a comment I made on UK.REC.CYCLING was picked up by, and if the Police Inspector was telling the truth, forwarded to the Police by Google. The comment was about the standard of Police drivers driving when returning to an unassuming building on an industrial estate being used as an undercover base. It seems the cyclistas on uk.rec.cycling are concidered subversives and are targeted as such, much the same may happen to photographers rights groups.

Google is NOT your friend, the Governments friend, but not yours, IME.

Warrington first to get Virgin Media 50Mb/s

What chance?

"Hopefully they'll now get similar speeds to most other normal ISPs out there..."

I doubt that, we went through several isp's and a fair few disagreements at home before going with National Thieves Limted to get broadband. BT's copper was too long to work to us so it was NTL or nothing. Virgin have improved some aspects, but most of the same old NTL staff are still driving their rebranded vans around like loons and don't give a flying **** about customer care either.

Still hopefully they'll invest in fibre research to make things even better, which should make my job more secure... or perhaps not.
