Looking at the statistics for 1974 casualties in Northern Ireland there seem to be 294, and of those 73 were probably army.

TrueCrypt maybe..the NCA seem interested in the files truecrypt1 and truecrypt2 on Love's computers.
It would seem the evidence was described as "The NCA had taken screen shots which showed a list of file structures and a directory of employees from the US Department of Energy (DoE), he said. Other screen shots showed material from the US military.".
Ah yes he had the bible ... "For his latest extradition hearing, Love appears in Westminster Magistrates’ Court wearing a green hat with a bear on it while carrying a copy of the book ‘Saving Gary McKinnon: A Mother’s Story’.".
Although it would seem his extradition request is now scheduled for the 28 - 29th of June. This would be his appearance at the hearing of his own civil case for return of equipment.
This seems to be the NCA response to Love's civil action to get his computers returned. This may or may not be anything to do with the extradition request .. which would presumably be a criminal case.
The NCA have already returned some of Love's equipment. They didn't return other items on the grounds that they contained encrypted files. It looks to me that Love can either give up the key, and presumably once files are examined get the equipment back, or not allowing the NCA to keep the equipment.
The statement “There is a concern that the NCA is seeking in this application to access Mr Love's data by the back door rather than by the route sanctioned by parliament in Ripa,” by Love's brief is probably an attempt to conflate this case with the extradition request.
Only one thing turns a cost of £3 Million to £100 Million in this sort of time scale ...
only 10 per cent of staff indicated that they had confidence in the senior leadership, while seven per cent agreed that they were kept informed, and senior management had communicated a vision that motivated them.
So very much the sort of result you would expect from people working for an American corporate then ?
Sale finishes this weekend .. but we all know it's gonna start again on Tuesday.
No idea about Alice .. Bob would be with Rita and Sue too.
I believe is the latest evolution of agile programming where by rather than releasing every three weeks the time frame shifts to every three hours ....
He is a fugitive in the UK for "Failing to attend court on time as required". This cannot really be disputed as apart from anything else the people who payed his bail lost their money. This is a criminal offence for which the maximum sentence in a magistrates' court is three months' imprisonment, or twelve months in the Crown Court.
In respect of the allegations from the women in Sweden there is a fairly concise legal summary at:
a summary of which is that either rightly or wrongly what Assange did would be rape in the UK as well. Personally I think this is rightly, but then I unlike you do not consider Assange a saint, and do consider that women should have some legal rights.
I have done some further reading on this one. There is other news suggesting that Assange has applied to the "UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention" on the basis that the UK authorities have refused to grant Assange "safe passage" to a hospital for the scan on an injured shoulder.
I can sort of see that just maybe the UN folks might decide that this was a bit unfair ... and I can also see how the UK folks might decide that they shouldn't grant a known fugitive any sort of "safe passage".
It is on record that Assange jumped bail .. whilst I have not passed the bar I really cannot see a court giving this one a 'not guilty'. Can you?
As you say the UK and US fly rendition flights. The UK being one of the countries Assange tried to stay in rather than return to Sweden. This being the most inconsistent behaviour by Assange given his stated fear that the US were planning his extradition. This is even more inconsistent given that (and I repeat) Sweden has laws prohibiting extradition on the basis of "a political offense" or "an offense connected with a political offense".
It's fairly obvious to even the casual observer that any charges against him are political in origin, ...
No not obvious to me and certainly not the charge of "Failing to attend court on time as required" to which he is almost indisputably guilty.
If you want to talk about countries bending the rule of law for ... that were shown to be "persons of interest" to the US both ended up getting the shaft. It isn't rocket science.
Really? Sweden the country to which Assange had originally decided to apply for residence on the basis of their laws prohibiting extradition on the basis of "a political offense" or "an offense connected with a political offense".
I personally think, on the basis of his behaviour, he is guilty of both failure to appear as bailed, and the charges in Sweden.
That said I think that it is indisputable he is guilty of "Failing to attend court on time as required". On the legality of the other charges there is a good summary here -
The recent decision by "United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention" may well be good for Assange but really does seem to fly in the face of the human rights of the women in Sweden.
Or indeed any expertise, or maybe just plain old common sense?
I think of the internet (for the more sensational stuff anyway) as an enormous version of the 'Sunday Sport' newspaper.
Yes .. I have a long held theory that 'almost all Companies survive inspite of the senior management'.
From then on I craved all the latest science and technologies, and it ultimately led me to the computer science field. You know the rest.
You mean enthusiasm, disillusionment, and eventual full on computer technology phobia ....
The above said, which is more a reflection on corporate computing, and "For he is a jolly good fella" .
Whilst I agree with Jake's robust assertion here... a further thought on your point .... "In my case, I rely on the internet for my phone and 911 connection."
I rely on my car, now then, now then, in the pretend democracy in which I live the speed limit and indeed some of the other rules of the road are repressive. Additionally there is a "sort of" three strikes rule. That said because I rely on being able to drive what I do is comply with the rules .... maybe you could do the same with your internet use if it is important to you?
Yes and I seem to remember it being on PCs a little before Windows One ?
I think the better approach is to go on the attack. The saying goes "attack is the best defence" applies universally and throughout history. The root of the problem lies in a nation state sized terrorist organisation occupying a large area of the middle east.
Isn't this just the sort of thinking that created the 'Terrorist Nation State" in the first place ....
The Prime Minister has already announced a response to world events ahead of the events. This looks like proactive management to me .. something you see very little of in this day and age.
I do wonder if this was a cut and paste job from the BBC web site ...
Police have made a fourth arrest, of a 16-year-old boy, in connection with the investigation into an alleged data theft from TalkTalk.
He was held on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act offences after officers searched an address in Norwich.
Police have also arrested and bailed a 16-year-old from London ....
I believe the Police go with a name and birthday being sufficient to uniquely identify an individual. But even they don't just assume unique identification for two people of the same gender and age.
Even the Guardian has articles suggesting that far from being "Extrajudicial killings" these actions were both lawful and proportionate.
The quote I found was The company generates most of its revenue through the sale of ads displayed on its network.. Which suggests why they might allow you to sign in with Facebook or Twitter.
That said this might not be the best commercial basis for funding help desk and monitoring software.
Back in the Thatcher days .. I never voted for her, nor in fact John Major.
That said a term of Tony Blair from 1997 convinced me that maybe these sort of politicians aren't the best people to run the country.
I would admit to voting for the Tories.
I don't have any particular political bias one way or the other .. they both seem as bad as each other. I think for me it was the thought that we would get another Labour government in the style of the last few. Where the policy seemed to be to give as much money to people who were on benefits so they would carry on voting Labour.
This was a major contribution to the deficit and doesn't do a lot for those of us who work, have to pay for our own housing and so on.
I didn't take much notice of the Blue corner either .. just thought that Ed Cameron was less like Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.
as people went to vote they remembered Tony Blair, and Gordon Brown thought ah that David Miliband ... would be much the same.
.. it's a damn' sight harder to see any case for supporting Sony...
Not so sure on that one ...
Wikileaks - sells other peoples material
Sony - sell original material
Surely more of a "toss up" between them both?
Ah yes a good plan albeit with one minor flaw.
1) Bring it out in the open. Make them declare publicly all jobs and contracts they take out while being MPs; or
This is the approach now ... the "House of Commons the Register of Members' Interests"
I can't feel any sympathy for Ross at all. He ran a web site which facilitated many illegal activities. He seems to my my mind, among other things, to have been correctly convicted of narcotics-trafficking, .
His only defense being that he wasn't DPR which given that he was caught red-handed being DPR fell apart. Even Ross and his defense team didn't argue with the charges regarding the legality of Silk Road ... this seems to me one of the more unequivocal convictions of somebody basically caught 'bang to rights' doing the crime.
and the Cream Egg would still be made with chocolate ... rather than the vomit US equivalent.
This might just work ... when it disappeared my theory was that it was sitting on Mar with a screen saying something along the lines of "Press any key to continue .... "
I 'll bet even the staff of "Charlie Hebdo" and all the Yazidis are laughing along with you ...
This is Jake ... from what I have seen a citizen who lives off the beaten track in the USA. My guess is that he has enough military hardware to fully supply an insurgency in any small to medium sized African nation?
Just a thought.
Along with every other 'corporate' that just exists to service shareholder value and no longer produces any innovation.
Luckily enough, Ellison didn't fall victim to the conference-demo curse on his first outing as CTO, and nothing crashed. Lucky enough for the poor saps that put the demo together nothing crashed and they got away with their lives ....
Your post contains one flaw in re-engineering, in particular your list Paedophiles, Benefit Fraudsters, Extreme Porn producers, and Extremist’s would all be considered criminals. These activities would have been considered criminal both before and during your life time. Further to this almost all other societies would consider these activities criminal.
Whereas the 1946 poem contains a list of people who would largely not have been considered criminals until such time as the specific government to which Martin refers made these things criminal.
The Met Police seized records from the Sun whilst investigating the actions of their own staff in lying to the press. How this either is 'Mass Surveillance' or conflates with the actions of genuine whistle blowers is hard to see?
Edward Snowden ?
4. Neither the Ukrainian nationalists, or separatists are right (or wrong). That said the associated Russian intervention is neither right or wrong ...
4a) The West should be very cautious about intervening.
I did hear a comment here that 'Russia had always considered Ukraine within it's sphere of influence, and their understanding of the place would be better than NATO's'.
That said I suspect they took Crimea out of self interest since the black sea fleet is based there, which sort of begs the question why they ever gave the place to Ukraine in the first place.
Just like in Afghanistan where Russia invaded illegally and the West was forced to support the resistance. After that the whole place didn't get really sorted out until the Russians left and we all invaded properly ... well it did didn't it?
“We view Apps different than books or songs, which we do not curate. If you want to criticize a religion, write a book. If you want to describe sex, write a book or a song, or create a medical App.”
Or indeed download it from some celebrities Icloud account ....
GCHQ will be a prohibited place under the terms of the OSA. Even if the Police aren't allowed to reveal that you are in a prohibited place there will be signs all round the perimeter fence saying this anyway.
Not in this case. Depending on the photograph contents the two laws that might apply are:
The Official Secrets Act (OSA)
The OSA could (would in fact) apply to photographs of GCHQ (and I think within 50 metres of perimeter). The Counter-Terrorism Act could apply to photographs of employees.
The local newspapers suggest it was cider ... which makes sense given the West Country theme.
