The punchline being it was the "museum of tolerance"
But most of these thefts are staff loading a pallet of coffee/chocolate/cigs back onto the truck with a nod to the driver - not slipping a slipping a few frozen pies down their pants
So is this outgoings or cashflow?
Shouldn't revenue and customs take in more money than they spend?
If you have a tax office that pays OUT 50Bn quid perhaps you have a few sign errors in the maths
IIRC Google did end up suing itself. It owned a patent troll who sued Android handset makers, including Motorola who Google own
Or a company acting on behalf of them. RealID run infringement tracking for content owners
And what if it was a fraud trial that might take 3, or 5 or 10 years?
And comes down to 10,000 different cases of whether a withholding under section 5678987654 constituted a legitimate payment under section 87656789876 or was a transfer subject to section 987656789
True, but the "probabilty jury will convict" is a major part of the CPS calculus irrespective of the evidence.
If that means let the rich white fraudster go because the trial will be long and expensive and the jury don't like paying tax so it's unlikely we will get a conviction, while a black teenager on a drug charge is a guaranteed win - then you may as well replace the whole criminal justice system with a phone in vote on the Daily Mail
>It's rare for the court briefing to actually tell the jury they can decline to return a verdict.
And presumably illegal for you to research the fact that you can
> whilst thousands of other trial go without a hitch.
You mean where the white middle-aged middle-class jury members decide the black teenagers must have done it
Of course it may be that juries are perfectly unbiased and the reason the conviction rate is so much higher for young black defendants - is that the cases the police bring against those who look like members of the jury are all obvious fit-ups
A second secret court has already rejected the appeal before this one gave its verdict
Not quite - he gets 120 days off his sentence because they admitted torturing him
>I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;
That sounds like the subversive sort of statement that could get you on your president's new enemies list
YOu really think the US intelligence agencies share any product back with the Irish suppliers?
Why? To ensure that Ireland supports the war on terror? To guarantee the use or Ireland as a nuke missile base ?
I think the trade is more like; here is all the data on everybody in europe Mr NSA. Well ain't that cute Ireland, have a baseball cap
WAAS is used to improve the accuracy in commercial receivers but its original requirement was data integrity - although I think back in the day, that was assuming software/transmission errors rather than deliberate attacks
Wasn't the purpose of WAAS to prevent GPS spoofing so that the FAA could use it to replace nav beacons without having to give every aircraft a military recv?
Anybody know how WAAS (and presumably EGNOS) prevent spoofing? Does it look for different doppler shifts from the stationary GSO satelites ?
And the INS drifts which is why you regularly reset it from the known GPS position.
So all you have to do is drift the GPS and nobody notices.
That's because china is a big bad evil communist country and so until recently it was difficult for US companies, that relied on the smiling benevolence of the military-industrial complex, to do a lot of business there. It was also tricky to export advanced semiconductor equipment there despite putting a note in the manual saying "not to be used to build nuclear weapons to point at us"
Taiwan as a beacon of enlightened capitalist freedom was rather easier to do business with, and if the work was actually done in china nobody cared as long as the god fearing consumer never found out
Now that China and Russia are friendly (albeit with nukes pointed at us) partners in the war on terror it's all ok.
>why is there a need for any more than one version?
Because you can!
You extract the maximum amount of money from each market segment. More can be extracted from people buying $100k worth of servers than those buying $200 netbooks
When you are making more profit from investing the $Bn in the markets than you make from selling software - shoudln't you just axe the software arm and become a full time hedge fund?
I was trying to get a new grad to write a gcode parser.
Tried to explain it was just a plotter language for CNC machines - blank looks
Like HPGL - blanck looks
For a pen plotter - blank looks
Searched wiki for a picture of a pen plotter = amazed look
The nice thing about enterprise staff is you have an automatic slave copy of them in a geographically remote location able to spin up and take over
With consumer staff you have to go down to PC world and pick up whatever junk they have workign their to replace them
Just because you have been spying on each other for nearly 100years, have supported every terrorist and dictator that opposed the other side, and have 20,000 nuclear warheads pointed at each other - doesn't mean you can't be friends
So Russia and their new American 'partners" will invade Europe for the gas?
Well it is one combination that hasn't been tried yet
So they improved immigration queues at Terminal 5?
So what does this do that the $40 mini android machines don't do ?
It's New Zealand - what else does the government have to do all day?
Knowing that New Zealand radicalism is now being so effectively monitored
That happened in New York (IIRC)
They had windsheild mounted transponders to pay the toll on a bridge/tunnel/freeway
They sent the transponders out by Fedex
The Fedex truck went through the bridge/tunnel/freeway multiple times on it's route
Drivers were receiving fines for unpaid trips before they even received the transponder
It took a long time and a lot of lawsuits to work out why !
In the 1984 miners strike the police had to hang around in cold laybys looking for any car with 4 big blokes in ti so they could stop possible miners from travelling around the country.
To save money on overtime they needed to automate the process of detecting possible striking miners moving freely around the country.
Admittedly it took a few years to get the system up and running, and they got the wrong Royston, and Royston colliery closed ...
Translucent means you can partially see through the surface to see the underlying structure.
Pretty good analogy for a bag of water with bones in surrounded by water
I preferred the more mellow sounds of the older Analogue Birmingham
That's the reason for the increased use of metal detectors in public buildings
If you can fit your gut through the gates AND you aren't carrying a gun - you obviously aren't a true American
It would have allowed the police to detect that possible northerners were entering the Southern Co-Prosperity Zone - and they could have been herded back to their northern hovels.
> ***us, is that you again?
With the new system
I hope there is mission creep.
If the filters are running on kit with a backdoor to the chinese communist party - perhaps we will see less Royal Baby crap
Because it makes little baby Jesus cry
and makes Daily mail readers vote for the other lot
No that's if a LIVE C19 Walrus was found in a London graveyard
If we weren't all descended from one women we would be separate species which - with the possible exception of US talk show hosts - we aren't
>Because it's a mammal?
Mammal is a class, there are at least 6 classes that are fish.
Some also have members that live on land so a mammal that lives in water can be a fish
>All fish have gills
>All fish lay eggs
So salamanders and axolotls are fish?
Chondrichthyes - sharks/rays are fish
Osteichthyes - ray finned fish are fish
Agnatha - lampreys are fish
Hagfish and Echinoderms ( starfish ) aren't even Cordata and they are fish
Don't see why a mammal can't be a fish
Making patents worthless
So if one court in China/Russia/Texas decided that a local company didn't violate an Intel/ARM/etc patent then all their customers get all their license fees back ?
>owned by the University of California, had sued Microsoft ....yielded around $US30 million for the University
But presumably means no Microsoft/Gates donations to the UC system
Would it be legal for MSFT to decide not to hire any future UC grads? - live by the troll ,die by the troll
They do a couple of hundred mph - how much more mobile can you get ?
From where the beams presumably end up in the user's eyeballs
Following concerns about wireless technology a new direct student-student cabled network system has been introduced = Combined Houston Area Integrated Network - Gang
In partnership with the department of transport the students will also be taking part in a new practical course of road side hydrological engineering
No they simply mount a camera on each student and have them automatically uploaded to facebook
God made the world from the slain body of Ymir the ice giant.
Do you see any Ice giants left alive? No ? - that's all the evidence you need if you have faith!
We have the House of Lords and Royal family to disprove any idea of intelligent design in hereditary
