NATO leaving Turkey?
It is no part of the defence of Europe and the US to prop up a regime as Islamist as ISIS (if presently less violent) and as democratic as North Korea.
Are there any transcripts?
I've been long away from Blighty but *I* thought one had to boil tea until the spoon either stood up in it or dissolved.
Or was that Army coffee.... not sure: I think COFFEE came by the slice. US Army coffee, that is.
Not to worry...
There'll be an app for that. Google's, of course.
No it won't

LOGICALLY impossible, technologically unlikely and practically impossible.Will the Master Breaker at the Fortress of Solitude trip and the Earth go dark? No more will a teenager playing VR Thrones bring the world of business to a halt. VR Pron now; that's another matter.
No tupping, eh?
Cameron can't; Theresa MAY.
Hmm. Your reference to Newton Minow's characterization had me thinking that in the kase of klan K, TV is s a "half-vaste wasteland". Did I spell that right?

Scale of what?
For unabashed failure to know what one is doing, this is not nearly as bad as losing a Mars Orbiter in 1999 when someone didn't convert pounds to Newtons for every system on the spacecraft. Not even close
But it'll do for just plumb dumb.

There's a state prison in California where beekeeping was a permitted activity for good-conduct prisoners, but this had to be prohibited after some of them were discovered breaking out in hives. ...

My ex and i were At Ramstein Air Base for an air show some few years ago, when a pair of Canadian 104's decided to fly over in afterburner at about 500 kts and see how high they could get us to jump.

Well, darn! And here the local PD was ready to ask for warrants!
New headline: Informant grasses Black Hole
Another possibility is that this black hole is receding from us fast enough to shift x-ray frequencies into the RF spectrum. That's a very unlikely possibility, but if so, it would be a tantalizing observation.
AFAIK, EMC (ElectroMagnetic Compatibility) tests have NEVER required handcuffs, and "kinky" appears in NONE of its standards.
Just so you know...
So -- for a given value of understand - do ball-flinging children understand physics.
It's possible that the only people offended might be Muslims; they still remember the streets of Jerusalem running with blood when the Crusaders won the battle to establish a Latin Kingdom there.

Let's have all European and American regulatory standards made available for free as well.

Oh, SO sorry you had to wait, but don't worry; there's another flight tomorrow and the airline will be happy to sell you another nonrefundable ticket.
It wasn't very long ago that the new police chief in the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, addressing one of the religious communities here, pointed out that the number of murders in Grand Rapids has been dropping for years, even though the number of shootings hasn't dropped.
Grand Rapids is home to a number of very good hospitals near the neighborhoods where shootings occur, and they're saving many people who would otherwise die – which has NOTHING to do with whether anyone is videotaping the police.
Is there a transcript?
Prior art indeed

Sure -- if you won't mind the People's Intelligence Commission reading your files and running DDoS on your computer.
Nah. Turn 'em ALL off.
No! Haven't owned a television nor watched one at home since 1997. And I don't stream video content, either. Sic transit etcetera; e pluribus scruem.

Tell them you appreciate their concerns and agree -- so you'll stop reading their content and find it elsewhere on the Web unmolested by popups.
A quick CTRLA/CTRL C can snatch the first page before the popup appears on the screen, too.
Of course, a word to a wise man is enough – but a whole paragraph is wasted on a damfool.

Anything found possible
Anything possible is going to be looked at somewhere. If it's also practical and affordable, it will appear everywhere.
If I had the test equipment, and I were seeking to break into a device that wiped its memory after, say, 10 attempts, I'd buy a similar device and instrument all of the reset and I/O. I'd be looking for [pins] that only changed status or state on the 11th attempt – and then I'd pull it high or low or provide the normal signals to see if that was the controlling input. Not easy, and for most of not affordable, but certainly practical if you've got the money, the time, and the lab.
That's probably not what the FBI or their helpers did, but it's the first thing that I would have thought of. Then again, I have a different way of thinking. Just ask anyone who knows me!

I was just a lad when Dad was stationed in Wiltshire with the USAF, but I remember the three-penny bits.

When governments outlaw drones, our respective legislators are declared redundant.
Some years BT (Before Tweet), I quit my job at what was then a large computer company by resigning with an email to the CEO – and "ALL"– about restrictions the Chaebol taking over the firm had put on the ability of non-Koreans to make necessary design changes. Needless to say, my resignation was accepted.
After the Koreans got there many others left as well; one Web site I found later said the company entered bankruptcy after an "exodus of talent". I had by then gotten a much better job elsewhere, at a higher level of responsibility. I suspect the increase in pay more than made up for not staying around to get the severance package.
It's not about free speech
The judge in the case says that what the FBI wants the courts to order is illegal; the District Court's decision says in part (on page 30) :
"I therefore reject the government's interpretation of the AWA's gap-filling function, and conclude that a judicial order that would confer authority that Congress has considered and decided not to enact is not "agreeable to the usages and principles of law."
of Judge Orenstein's decision (which the FBI is appealing) is found on page 30:
"... a judicial order that would confer authority that Congress has considered and decided not to enact is not "agreeable to the usages and principles of law."
Applying that interpretation in this case compels the conclusion that the AWA does not authorize the relief the government seeks. "
