"Murdoch said he couldn't comment on the possibility of editors not knowing about phone-hacking methods taking place at the newspaper, given the ongoing police investigations."
So, Rupert Murdoch (or his legal adviser) decides that he can't give answers to certain questions, to a parliamentary hearing, because it would affect police operations. Does the chairman of the hearing or the police themselves have any opinion on this matter, or do they just keep quiet and let him run the show? Oh.... a silly question I suppose.
@AC 13:50 You make a good point. It seems that religion makes people feel better about a blow to the head.
@AC 14:44 You are actually agreeing with him! (based on your first paragraph
@Bristol: You need to differentiate between ACs
@Zeke: You've started drinking early you old dog ;) Does beer make you feel better about a blow to the head?
The problem is in getting the volume orders to enable low sale-price production (always has been). After that, there is the problem of setting up, etc, which would need a technically competent assistant for a short while.
This and similar devices have been 'possible' for many years but there is little incentive for volume manufacture.
For a disabled person using their feet, a foot operated trackball would seem to be a good idea, perhaps with more friction than the usual hand operated trackballs.
I've never seen this kind of diagram before. Am I right to assume that the diameter of each circle represents the total volume of trades? If so, does the number of concentric circles from a point represent the number of individual trades or is the stepped blue gradient just to help you find the centre of the circle?
As for one large sell trade driving the value down so quickly; surely that would only happen if a significant number of people were using automated trading systems, with panicky algorithms?
"The policy on scrunchies is not noted."
The policy on scrunchies is to have them as required items of adornment.
This is because a scrunchie can be used as a tourniquet in emergencies and for everyday use when binding the upper arm to take blood samples from the lower arm. All part of cost saving measures.
" ... the council had paid the price for failing to handle sensitive data appropriately ..."
Actually, Surrey ratepayers (poll tax..) will pay the price, in reduced spending on services or an increase in their payments next year.
I'd like to see fines of this nature levied on executive salaries/bonuses and managerial bonuses, over a three (or so) year period. Yes, dream on, I know.
